(Reuters) - Seven years after former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden blew the whistle on the mass surveillance of Americans’ telephone records, an appeals court has found the program was unlawful - and that the U.S. intelligence leaders who publicly defended it were not telling the truth.

In a ruling handed down on Wednesday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit said the warrantless telephone dragnet that secretly collected millions of Americans’ telephone records violated the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act and may well have been unconstitutional.

Agreed.
So, does that mean that Snowden has a chance to go back home without being arrested for treason?

No, because that would make sense.

They'll probably say it doesn't matter that the program was illegal. Since it was classified he still committed treason. They will say he should have went through official channels.
