>> is he a traitor in your mind and what should the administration do to get him back to justice?

>> bring him to justice and let a prosecutor make that decision, not a politician, but i think what he did is compromise our national security , and i've got a very simple view of the world, and you can blame me for being simple in complex times. i believe we should be listening to terrorists, known terrorist e-mails, following their e-mails and following their phone calls . and if they're e-mailing somebody in the united states or calling somebody in the united states , i would like to get a judge's permission to monitor that phone call . if we don't do that, another attack on our homeland is very likely. we need this program and he's compromised it and he should be held accountable.
