King: Snowden is a Traitor, Doesn't Deserve Clemency

Local congressman says NSA leaker should be held accountable.

Rep. Peter King didn't take too kindly to a recent New York Times editorial that urged the Obama administration to grant clemency to former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. 

The Seaford Republican told Fox News that he believes Snowden is a “traitor or a defector” for providing The Guardian and other news outlets with documents detailing the extent of the NSA's surveillance programs, according to a Huffington Post report

King also called the New York Times “an accomplice” in Snowden’s actions.

Snowden, who U.S. officials have charged with espionage and theft of government property, is currently living in Russia under temporary asylum.
