This focuses on the live chat Snowden did with The Guardian. He revealed several things that were not in his initial interview. The first was something that was asked about in the Senate Appropriations Committee hearing: how is domestic communication getting mixed in with the “foreign correspondence” that they are really only supposed to be focusing on. Snowden said that if someone is communicating with another person outside of the United States, they collect that data as well and save it “for a very long time.”

 

Snowden was also asked several other important questions. The first was whether or not he stood by what he said about the NSA being able to wiretap anyone. He said he did (even though Gen. Alexander said he “knew no way of doing that”). During the chat, he was also asked if he was a spy for China and why he decided to do this. He denied being involved with China and said he had no contact with Chinese officials. As far as why he did it, he gave an answer that he also gave in his initial interview: he saw an injustice being perpetrated on the American people and he could not stand by and watch it anymore.
