US Senate Republican leader thinks that WikiLeaks founder is a "terrorist".
"I think the man is a high-tech terrorist," says Sen. McConnell of Assange, the frontliner of the whistleblowing Website, for releasing classified material from the United States government.
McConnell admitted in NBC's "Meet the Press" that the online release of memos has resulted in "enormous damage" to the country and to its relationship with its allies.
The Republican Senator also hopes that Assange will be prosecuted for the disclosures.
He adds that if it will be found that the Australian journalist Assange has not violated the law, then the law should be changed.
