During an appearance on Studio B, Judge Andrew Napolitano called NSA leaker Edward Snowden an “American hero,” who was “willing to risk life, limb, and liberty in order to expose to the American people one of the most extraordinary violations of the American principles, value judgments, and the Constitution itself.”

Hero or Traitor? Politicians, Pundits and Personalities React to NSA "Whistleblower"

Napolitano blasted the lawmakers who were aware of the NSA’s surveillance programs, saying, “Anybody who thinks it is consistent with the Constitution for spies in the United States of America, working for the federal government, to spy on more than half the country, does not understand the Constitution, does not accept our values, does not understand our history and ought not be in office.”
