WASHINGTON, D.C. (WKZO) -- The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee thinks NSA leaker Edward Snowden likely had help in revealing classified information about U.S. intelligence programs.  Appearing on NBC's "Meet the Press," Representative Mike Rogers said he doesn't think it's a coincidence that Snowden ended up "in the loving arms of an FSB agent in Moscow."

The Michigan Republican called Snowden "a thief" who put Americans at risk by stealing classified information.  Rogers wants Snowden to return to the U.S. to stand trial.  He said it will cost billions to rebuild nation's surveillance programs.
