Glenn Greenwald Suggests More Revelations Are Coming
Posted on Jun 9, 2013
On the heels of breaking the bombshell stories about the National Security Agency’s secret phone surveillance and data-mining programs, the Guardian’s Glenn Greenwald hinted on ABC’s “This Week” that these reports were just the beginning.
“Should we be expecting more revelations from you?” host George Stephanopoulos asked Greenwald during Sunday’s program.
“You should,” he responded.
Greenwald said he hadn’t been contacted by the FBI or law enforcement officials investigating the leak, but added that he “would be more than happy” to discuss the matter with them if contacted.
“I will tell them that there is this thing called the Constitution, and the very first amendment of which guarantees a free press,” he said. “As an American citizen, I have every right and even the obligation as a journalist to tell my fellow citizens and our readers what it is that the government is doing, that they don’t want people in the United States to know about, and I’m happy to talk to them at any time, and the attempt to intimidate journalists and sources with these constant threats of investigation aren’t going to work.”
Greenwald’s appearance came on the same day that The Guardian published his latest report involving the NSA, this one involving the agency’s top secret tool to gather global metadata called Boundless Informant.
