Mike, you're usually a lot better about doing your homework on things like this.
I highly recommend you read the FDA's actual letter regarding 23andMe. They are not trying to stamp out consumer DNA testing, they're trying to stop a specific company from defrauding their customers with misleading information.
23andMe has had a long time to report the efficacy of their testing, and has been unwilling to do so. They cannot provide any proof that their results are accurate. In the meantime, they scare the crap out of people by reporting not only false positives, but false negatives.
It's complete snake oil, and I'm surprised you let their shill have the floor.
It's not only fraud, it's harmful fraud. If they tell you "omg you're at risk for cancer!", and you freak out and go to your doctor waving a piece of paper around insisting you have cancer and need to be treated... You're going to have a bad time.
False positives are bad. False negatives are even worse. Both are apparently rampant with 23andMe's "service."
It provides no useful information, and only makes people worry.
Legally, "treason" has a very, VERY specific definition:
"Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort."
The sticking point for many seems to be the definition of "Comfort." It's not "peace of mind," or "laughs," or "agreeing with them." It's straight harboring enemy combatants (like, letting them hide in your house), or giving them money.
You're not guilty of Treason just for breaking the Constitution.
Interestingly, the most recent example of *actual* treason was HSBC Bank laundering money for drug cartels and known terrorist organizations.
Who says they didn't have a warrant? He's been charged with a variety of crimes at this point, and there are any number of judges who would issue a warrant for the search of his home, car, storage units, email, phone records, etc etc.
Any search of *Snowden's* personal effects and papers are fully within the 4th Amendment.
I don't think he should be prosecuted, but since he *is* being investigated and prosecuted, the searches of his stuff are entirely legal.
