NBC “Meet the Press” host David Gregory provoked a furious response from fellow journalist Glenn Greenwald after he asked whether he should be charged with a crime for having “aided and abetted” admitted National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden.

“To the extent that you have aided and abetted Snowden, even in his current movements, why shouldn’t you, Mr. Greenwald, be charged with a crime?” Gregory asked Sunday.

The Guardian columnist, who broke the story of the federal government’s secret monitoring programs, replied that it was “pretty extraordinary that anybody who would call themselves a journalist would publicly muse about whether or not other journalists should be charged with felonies.”
