MITCH McCONNELL: Snowden 'did not perform a public service, he was a traitor'

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) stopped by Business Insider to discuss his new memoir “The Long Game” and talk about the 2016 election cycle.

We asked him about former Attorney General Eric Holder’s recent comments on political strategist David Axelrod’s “The Axe Files” podcast in which he referred Edward Snowden’s classified file-leaking as a “public service.” He added that Snowden’s actions were “inappropriate and illegal.”
