Let’s Hope Brian Williams Asks Sen. Grassley about getting Snowdened during Insider Threat Program Meeting with the FBI
May 23, 2014
NBC News, in collaboration with First Look Media, has landed the first American television interview with GAP client and NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. Anchor Brian Williams conducted interviews in Russia with both Snowden and journalist Glenn Greenwald that will air next Wednesday in a network special.
It will be interesting to see if Brian Williams reaches out to Senator Chuck Grassley who recently received the Snowden treatment from the FBI. Senator Grassley expressed concern regarding the White House’s Insider Threat Program (a government employee/whistleblower would have to register (like a sex offender) and defeats the purpose of filing the case under anonymity). When Grassley pushed the FBI further in the meeting for information on the program the FBI abruptly ended and left the meeting. Did the FBI just prove Mr. Snowden’s point, Senator Grassley?
