House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was met with boos Saturday after suggesting that Edward Snowden, who leaked classified documents detailing National Security Agency surveillance, had broken the law.

Pelosi, a Democrat from California, was heckled when she spoke out on the case at a Netroots Nation event in San Jose.

“The fact is we have to keep the balance between security and privacy,” Pelosi said.
