4:00 pm
heads shaved in solidarity. this is the boy's mom. >> 15 boys went into that barber shop. 15 men walked out. every time i think about it, it brings tears to my eyes. >> travis says his friends going bald has made it a lot easier for him. i'm don lemon. that's it for me. "the lead" with jake tapper starts now. >> are they whistleblowers or anarchists? do they make us more safe or less? i'm jake tapper and this is "the lead." the world lead, everything you ever wanted to know about spying but were afraid to ask. nsa leaker edward snowden fielded questions from the public from wherever he's hiding. the buried lead, the internet activist hailed a hero for bringing internet to the rape case. is that justice?
4:01 pm
is it even true? our interview with the man who went by the handle kentucky anonymous is coming up. and the pop lead. his father sent him to earth to save mankind. i'm not talking about jesus. superman. but the studio is counting on those similarities to sell "man of steel." welcome to "the lead." i'm jake tapper. edward snowden did a "ask me anything" interview. when asked how many sets of the documents you disclosed did you make and how many different people have them? if anything happens to you, do they still exist? snowden said all i can say right now is the u.s. government is not going to be able to cover this up by jailing or murdering me. the truth is coming and it
4:02 pm
cannot be stopped. remember when the head of the nsa on wednesday told congress that these methods of surveillance, in particular the prism program that, that may have helped prevent dozens of terrorist attacks? well, specifically one from 2009? >> section 702 clarkson was critical to discovery and disruption of the plot to bomb the new york city subway system; is that correct? >> that is correct. in fact not just critical, it was the one that developed the lead on it. >> well, snowden says that's also not true. in his online chat he wrote "u.s. officials also provide misleading or directly false assertions about the value of these programs as they did just recently with the zazi case, which court documents show was not unveiled by prism." the last we knew about snowden's
4:03 pm
whereabouts is that he was in hong kong. snowden says, "if i were a chinese spy, why wouldn't i have flown directly into beijing?" petting a phoenix? it turns out a majority of people here in the u.s. do not support snowed general's cause. new polling here for you. 52% of those polled disapprove of his actions, compared to 44% who support him and most people, 54%, want to see snowden extradited back to the u.s. and prosecuted for what he's done. for more let's turn to glenn greenwald. glenn a glenn, thanks for joining us. snowden say "the u.s. government
4:04 pm
is not going to be able to cover this up by jailing or murdering me, truth is coming and it cannot be stopped." to a lot of people that murder suggestion sems liems like a ra outrageous charge. is there any evidence that snowden's live is in any danger? >> if you read news accounts of what u.s. officials are telling journalists, they seem to think that if he turns over to the japanese governme chinese government or some foreign government, and there's no evidence he intends to do so, but the u.s. officials said it will be one of the gravest injuries to u.s. security ever. he's kurnd the only way they might think to stop him would be to physically stop him. they've targeted u.s. citizens in the past who they perceived as a threat to national security. he's saying putting me in prison
4:05 pm
or killing me won't prevent this information from being disclosed. it's a safety mechanism he's using because he's fearful in his situation. >> when you're talking about pursuing people for security, you're talking about anwar and the like? >> right. >> the leaks of the past few days, particularly the last few days that the nsa was spying on the russians, these are the sort of things we expect the nsa to be doing. how is that whistle blowing and how is aiding a non-democratic, sometime adversary of the united states aid the cause of civil liberties here at home? >> i would say two points about that. number one, i don't really think
4:06 pm
that his principal or certainly his only concern is that the u.s. is spying on its own citizens. the first time i spoke with him, he was really worried in a the nsa was destroying privacy globally, that by working with other governments and targeting citizens around the world that they were destroying privacy and anonymity and creating a worldwide, global surveillance net from which really no one on the planet was free. as far as the story you just referenced, i think it's really important to understand the process here. he went through the documents and found the documents that he thought were of public interest, including those that describe various public surveillance so therean be a limit. he gave those documents to "the guardian" through me, as well as some to the "washington post" with the instruction that we should all exercise very careful journalistic assessments and
4:07 pm
make the choice of what should be published or shouldn't be. if there's an article in "the guardian" or "the washington post," it's up to the paper to public it. the british government spied on its allies in london. can you debate whether that's a legitimate article to publish but that decision was made by "the guardian" editor, not by edward snowden. >> and administration has argued that congress has oversight and they are brought in the loop, the specific committees but also when it comes to specific white papers, members of congress were invited to see them in 2009 and
4:08 pm
2011, there is a fisa court and they take issue with the fact that there are abuses and illegal. your response? >> it's totally false. look at what the democrats on the intelligence committee. they've been desperately trying to get the public aware of the fact given the obama administration's secret law, as they called it, and they were constrained from even talking about it in public. this oversight is impotent, it's symbolic. even the senators who are alarmed by what they see are barred by law from doing anything about it. the nsa does not need warrants, they go once every six month, to the fisa court and they rubber stamp these vague guidelines and once they happens, the nsa can force telecoms and internet
4:09 pm
companies to give them whatever they demand under whatever the fisa court has blessed their guidelines. this does not involve looking over the shoulder of the nsa or making sure they're not abusing their power. it's symbolic and empty oversight. >> glen greenwald of "the guardian," thank you for your time. >> snowden's disclosure is no doubt making for awkward handshakes. they have to stand there and act like the u.s. and u.k. spied at the g8 summit in london. documents show how american spies targeted then russian pressure dmitri medvedev during
4:10 pm
the summit by intercepting his calls. how on earth did president obama explain that to vladimir putin as the two of them battled it out over syria in putin acknowledged the u.s. and russia do not see eye to eye on syria but have agreed to push the parties to the negotiating table. at the start of the summit in public everyone was all smiles as president obama talked up a new deal with the european union. >> among the things we'll discuss here promoting new growth and jobs on both sides of the atlantic. i'm pleased to join the leaders to announce a new trade agreement that will help us do just that. >> "the guardian" reports the brits set up fake internet caves to steal e-mails from delegates.
4:11 pm
>> coming up, he says all he did was put on a guy fox mask, post some videos and the fbi was at his door, but the feds are telling a different story. i'll talk to the online activist who waged digital warfare on steubenvil steubenville's football team and is facing jail time for it. >> and we'll tell you about stolen identities and exploited labor that all allegedly went down at a string of 7-elevens. ♪ helping this big country move ahead as one ♪ ♪ norfolk southern how's that function? ♪

[ male announcer ] if you can't afford your medication, astrazeneca may be able to help. welcome back to "the lead." in the buried lead, stories we think are not getting enough attention, a drunk 16-year-old girl at a party raped by two high school football players. it was an outrageous case that shocked the entire country and forever tarnished the name of the town in which the heinous
4:15 pm
act occurred, steubenville, ohio, especially after images of the act and about the attack went viral. >> greetings citizens of the world. >> many of us first learned of the rape after this guy got involved, this masked man, threatening re v threatening revenge on the whole team of football players. his wrath was centered on not only those two young men sentenced to juvenile detention after being sentenced to rape in march, both of who may be soon moved to a residence rehabilitation center with a program for sex offenders, no, anonymous was focused on the other players, who allegedly documented the assault and did nothing to stop it. anonymous demanded the players apologize to the victim and if they did not, their personal
4:16 pm
information would be shared with the world. >> this document will be released unless all those involved come forward -- >> when they didn't come forward, the masked man published this video. 2,000 people ended up rallying on the steps of the steubenville courthouse demanding justice in what became not just an outpouring of support for the victim but opposition to rape. the 26-year-old cyber security consultant and rapper who goes under the name shadow. his home was raided by the fbi. he says he had nothing to do with the hackings, that he only
4:17 pm
posted the video and says he's now facing three felony counts, including taking control of a secure computer and identity theft and media outlets are outraged thinking if convicted, he could face more jail time than the rapist. that th all feeds into this idea of injshs of a society that goes after the wrong people. but is it that simple? not everyone thinks the anonymous community acted heroically. false accusations are defamed innocent people and in the view of some law enforcement complicated the investigation. >> explain what happened when the fbi came to your door in april.
4:18 pm
>> sure. i was turkey hunting on april 15th and i had come back to the door and loaded up my computer to work and sat down and my dog jumps up on the door and i was expecting a t-shirt from shield tactical.com that day and whenever i opened up the door, i seen what appeared to be a fedex truck in the driveway and out jumped 12 swat team agents fully loaded with assault rifles pointed at my face telling me to get down. they cleared my house, brought my brother and girl friend down and cuffed us and interrogated us. we weren't read our rights, we weren't mirandized, they did not provide badges and it took me over a month to even track down my belongings. they went through the accounts
4:19 pm
of my brother and his girl friend, who have no prior criminal history, nor do i. think-the-basically violated our further amendment, illegal search and seizure and my lawyer has encouraged me to go and tell the world this story. >> they are accusing you or investigating you for hacking into the account of this booster of the football team, whose account was hacked. but you're saying you had nothing to do with it. >> correct. the man who done it has came out in the herald paper there in the ohio valley, as well as on his own twitter account publicly admitting -- >> you're talking about bad cat. but bad cat claims you approached him and asked him to break into the account. you're saying that's not true? >> i'm saying that's not true. people claim a lot of thingsline. >> the two now convicted rapists were arrested within a week of
4:20 pm
the attack in august but you did not get involved in the case until december. what were you trying to achieve with your activism? >> basically my specialty within anonymous was what i referred to was weaponizing the media, which is getting people like you broadcast what needed to be heard to the masses in a more effective way than twitter or social media. there was a lot of grass roots med media movement going. i opted to build relationships with reporters and get the word out, that way higher authorities would get involved because i had heard chief mccafferty, the police chief is trent mays' cousin and handled the evidence and that would be a huge conflict of interest and would allow for potential cover-ups to take place. so i felt it necessary in order to weaponize the media that this girl would get justice.
4:21 pm
she's thanked us many times, family friends stop by at rally, she's texted people and our prayer goes out with her. we're standing here with her to wait for the grand jury to get done with what they're dpog. >> very quickly, deric, there is beauty in activism but there can be vigilante justice. obviously the victim of the rape is our primary concern but there are people in steubenville who saw their reputations horribly and unfairly attacked by internet activists. do you play any role in that? do you see that as also unfair? >> with people going online with local leak, that was not run by me. it was a third-party site and those would be put up for speculation. i have no control of that and i disagree with a lot of what is
4:22 pm
on local leaks but it's there and i was there for the occupy movement and we'll be there until it's stopped. >> thank you so much. >> coming up on "the lead," dozens of shootings in a matter of days. while you might call it shocking, some see it as progress. >> and how the internet may be the guiding light that rescues grandma's favorite pastime. highest in the nation in customer satisfaction... i say "family," because we've been blessed with this honor for 3 years in a row... rest assured we'll treat all of your mortgage needs with tender loving care. amazing client satisfaction: it's a quicken loans family value. call 800-quicken or go to quickenloans.com to experience it for yourself.

4:37 pm
commercial that aired during the nba finals and teamed up with a giant in the cell phone industry. sorry twitter haters but in the words of the rap mogul, you can't knock the hustle. he's taking flak from fans who accuse him by selling out with samsung. since samsung has already purchased the copies to get away, that means jay-z's album went platinum before it was even released. despite all the backlash, he's not the first artist to use social media to promote an album. pistol annie's used vine to present their artwork. jay-z's album drops july 4th. >> kids are driving fast these days. now there's a new status symbol for the under 10 ground.

welcome back to "the lead." now it's time for the politics lead. the president is overseas but his poll numbers have him underwater. his approval points have dropped 8 points, leaving him at 45%, his lowest rating in more than a year and a half. he can thank scandals from the nas surveillance leak to the panel on benghazi about that. joining me kevin maddon, chief correspondent for the "new york
4:43 pm
times" magazine. mark, do you believe this poll? some people are questioning this poll. it's a very comprehensive poll. do you think this is the first one of a whole bunch that are going to show these scandals have had an effect? >> it certainly could. if you look at the period that covers, it's really the first poll that covers the entire run of bad news that's sort of clumped into about ten days about a month ago or three days ago or so. this administration has gotten pretty good of riding the wave of ebbs and glows and poll numbers. in the second phase it's easier to not shrug it off but blow over a little bit. >> when i look at polls, i always look at the trend line. what i find trouble if i'm in the white house is the president's trend lynn in his popularity and the level of trust for him is going down right as many americans feel the economy is starting to recover
4:44 pm
and their perceptions about the economy is starting to go up. usually the president rides those numbers up. there may be an erosion of attributes that may cause some irreparable harm for his second term agenda. that's what i'd be very worried about. >> we should also say congress have having incredibly poor approval ratings as well. when we said that to the white house, they said, well, congress is barely out of single digits. and that's true. if you worked at the white house now, would you be worried? >> i also like to look at trend lines but i don't see any reason for concern here. if you look a little deeper beyond the overall approval and the voter opinions on economy and jobss are he unchanged. he's within the margin of error. there is not that devastating dip that others are trying to portray. >> on the economy and jobs? >> on the economy of jobs.
4:45 pm
he's within the margin of error and that's the encouragement here, that this isn't some devastating dive that's unrecoverable. i think mark's point about the clump of scandal coverage is certainly something that would have an impact. and to your point that voters look around and say, well, nothing's getting done in washington and does obama bear some blame for that? >> one of the things that's interesting is he has a huge drop among young voters, down 17 points in the last month among people under 30. one thing he's done that people disagree with also even more is on syria, 70% of americans oppose sending arms to the syrian rebels, according to the pew poll conductsed before the announcement on chemical weapons. this is exactly what president clinton in that, quote unquote
4:46 pm
private meeting said don't worry about the polls, just do what's right. >> as the one member of this panel who doesn't look at trend lines, i guess, i feel i need to speak for the nontrend line viewers. >> we appreciate that. >> president clinton is much more remembered by history than it is by short-term poll numbers. i think that's clearly something that could resonate with the president and obviously he speaks with a bully pulpit there. >> i think with younger voters he always patterned himself as somebody challenging the status quo. with syria the big problem is he hasn't made clear to the american public what the objectives and goals this policy. there's a muddled message coming outs of the polls because
4:47 pm
there's a muddled message coming from the president. >> and the president is very ambivalent about this, he seems very torn. >> these are impossible choices. do you attempt to intervene with a civil war, recreate with the russia on one side and u.s. on another? it's a 1980s dynamic. or do you attempt to create peace in the middle east and who has had success there? >> thanks very much. up next in the pop lead, it's a bird, it's a plane, it's a christian christian allegory. sir... i'll get it together i promise... heeheehee. jimmy: ronny, how happy are folks who save hundreds of dollars switching to geico?

attention to the church as market place. in this case you've got a good match. >> here we have a message about superman and really an underlying message about the original superman, jesus christ. >> reporter: are you concerned that this studio is using you and religious groups to sell this movie? >> they're using us, but in fact we're using them. if you give me another opportunity to talk to someone about jesus christ and i can do it because of your movie, that's a win for me. because it is about spreading the gospel. >> reporter: now, other groups have seen allegory connections as well. superman is seen by some as jewish. >> so was jesus, by the way, jewish.
