Congress is showing bipartisan support for the Obama administration officially charging American Edward Snowden in connection with leaking secret information about the National Security Agency’s surveillance programs.

Federal prosecutors announced this weekend that they filed a criminal complaint June 14 against the former NSA contract employee, charging Snowden with the theft and communication of classified intelligence, then giving the information to an unauthorized person.

“I fully support the efforts of the United States government,” said New York Republican Rep. Peter King, chairman of the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Counterintelligence and Terrorism. “He has betrayed his country and the government must demand his extradition at the earliest date.”
