Who saw Snowden's documents?

Edward Snowden claims he did not allow Chinese and Russian intelligence agencies to see classified documents. In a new interview with the New York Times, Snowden says he gave all of the documents to journalists while in Hong Kong, and did not bring any with him to Russia. One of the journalists who received classified information from Edward Snowden is Guardian columnist Glenn Greenwald. He spoke to Anderson about these latest revelations.

Greenwald, the Miranda detention, and journalistic immunity

He also says none of those questions were about terrorism. Were authorities justified in doing that?

Edward Snowden's father on latest NSA revelations

Britain's Guardian newspaper revealed today that the NSA's e-mail searches may go deeper than you might imagine. According to the paper, agents are not only able to access e-mail addresses and subject lines, but also the content of the messages.  In addition they are also able to view web histories and social networking activity.  All this echoes bombshell allegations by Edward Snowden in the same newspaper.  Anderson spoke with the NSA’s leaker’s father Lon Snowden, along with his lawyer Bruce Fein.

New questions about NSA spying

New questions, but few answers about the extent of the NSA's domestic spying program.  Today, Britain's Guardian newspaper detailed a program called XKeyscore, that allows even low-level government employees and contractors to access just about anything a user does on the internet.  The new revelations come amid a new push in Congress to limit the reach of the NSA.  Anderson spoke with Michigan Republican Congressman Jason Amash, who led an effort that nearly succeeded at doing just that.
