MIKA BRZEZNISKI: "I just want an answer, yes or no. Isn't it the case that reviewing of emails or any wire tapping cannot take place without an additional warrant from a judge and a review. It's not like there's haphazard probing into of all our personal emails. Can we put this into context so we can understand exactly what's going on?"

GLENN GREENWALD: "Yeah, I'll put it into context for you. The White House talking points that you're using are completely misleading and false."
