In late 2012, an NSA contractor named Edward Snowden leaked to the press almost 200,000 classified documents exposing secrets about the scope and methods of American intelligence gathering. To some this made him a hero; to others a traitor. In this very special edition of Legally Speaking we pose a set of hypotheticals to an all-star panel of experts including New York Times reporter Charlie Savage, former NSA director Michael Hayden, and Washington, D.C., trial attorney Abbe Lowell that in effect put both Snowden (renamed "Snowman") and the NSA on trial.
