(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.
