Dianne Feinstein: We Don’t Know What Snowden Has

Senate Intelligence Committee chair Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said something Sunday that should be of grave concern to Americans on both sides of the aisle.

Appearing on CBS’s Face the Nation, Feinstein said that as far as what has been relayed to her, the United States government doesn't what documents National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden has in his possession.

BOB SCHIEFFER, HOST: Well, do you think he's a traitor?

DIANNE FEINSTEIN, CHAIR OF SENATE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE (D-CALIFORNIA): Well, I don't want to go into this right now. I want to get him caught and brought back for trial, and I think we need to know exactly what he has. He could have a lot, lot more. It may really put people in jeopardy. I don't know. But I think the chase is on, and we'll have to see what happens.

SCHIEFFER: Do you think, you talked to General Alexander this morning. Does the government have some idea of what it is that he has? What he has taken away?

FEINSTEIN: Not to my, not to my knowledge. The only thing I've learned is that he could have over 200 separate items, and whether that's true or not, I don't know. That's what's been relayed to me.
