Prosecutors also say that Greenwald was communicating with the hackers while they were actively monitoring private chats on Telegram, a messaging app. Greenwald moved to Brazil in 2005 after meeting David Miranda, a Brazilian man he later married and who became a federal congressman last year. Greenwald first became widely known for his role in the release of classified national security documents leaked by Snowden in 2013. Prosecutors said Tuesday that they abided by that order until they found audio messages which, they argued, implicated Greenwald in criminal activity. The Committee to Protect Journalists expressed alarm over the case against Greenwald.
