Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI) has been very unhappy about the leaks by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden from the very beginning.

Now the head of the powerful House Intelligence Committee has become one of several personalities at the heart of the NSA leak scandal to lash out at one of the journalists publishing stories about the documents. “For personal gain, he’s now selling his access to information, that’s how they’re terming it,” Rogers told Politico after a hearing in his committee earlier today. “A thief selling stolen material is a thief.” Rogers was apparently referring to Guardian reporter Glenn Greenwald, although he didn’t name him. Rogers said he got the information that Greenwald was charging for stories from “other nations’ press services.”
