"Edward Snowden has said, ‘I’ve committed a serious crime,’ the newspaper that has put this out there surely should be prepared to answer questions about whether anything they have done – in cahoots with this guy, we don’t know how far he goes – anything they’ve done borders on criminality. I think it’s a perfectly reasonable question."
(Bonus: Lawyer and author Alan Dershowitz responds to Morgan: “Greenwald’s a total phony. He is anti-American, he loves tyrannical regimes, and he did this because he hates America. This had nothing to do with publicizing information.”)
"I would arrest [Snowden] and now I’d almost arrest Glenn Greenwald, the journalist who seems to be out there, he wants to help him get to Ecuador or whatever."
Later, Sorkin did apologize:
"I put my foot in my mouth, and I’m sorry about this, when I veered into hyperbole," he said. "It didn’t come out right and I misspoke … I’m sorry I said it that way and I’m sorry I said it."

"To the extent that you have aided and abetted Snowden, even in his current movement, why shouldn’t you, Mr. Greenwald be charged with a crime? […] The question of who’s a journalist may be up to a debate with regard to what you’re doing."
