In his statement, FBI Director Robert Mueller said that the actions of the FBI and NSA are focused on protecting national security, but that the intelligence community does that "in full compliance with the law."
In an angry-seeming statement, he also emphasized that the "individual" responsible had broken the law and would be prosecuted, as result of what he described as an ongoing investigation. According the Mueller, Snowden's leaks compromised security efforts and made Americans less safe.
