The fugitive leaker stated in the first publicly revealed video of an interview with Greenwald that, “I, sitting at my desk, certainly had the authority to wiretap anyone, from you or your accountant, to a federal judge or even the president, if I had a personal email.”

He also mentioned previously reported examples of NSA abuse, calling for a rigorous investigation in the wake of Snowden’s leaks.
