Edward Snowden releases a statement after judge ruling on NSA

(CNN) — NSA leaker Edward Snowden released a statement Monday, the same day a federal judge said that he believes the government’s once-secret collection of domestic phone records is unconstitutional. “I acted on my belief that the NSA’s mass surveillance programs would not withstand a constitutional challenge, and that the American public deserved a chance to see these issues determined by open courts. Today, a secret program authorized by a secret court was, when exposed to the light of day, found to violate Americans’ rights. It is the first of many,” it read.
