Patch sat down with Congressman Jim Himes (CT-4) last week and asked him your questions about health care, the economy — both local and national — and his new position on the House Intelligence Committee.

In the video segments above, Himes, of Cos Cob, talks about the information on the NSA surveillance program leaked by Edward Snowden, his recent vote on the Amash Amendment that would have withdrawn funding for those programs and a look behind the curtain at how much oversight Congress has of the intelligence community.

Some additional reading — Smith v. Maryland.
