Glenn Greenwald, the journalist who broke the story on top-secret NSA surveillance programs earlier this summer, will testify before a congressional committee.

Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.), who is leading the Wednesday congressional hearing that has invited critics of the NSA programs to testify, told The Guardian, "I think that most people simply don't understand that, despite the news coverage, which my view has been extremely unfocused. There has been far too much discussion of the leaker, and not enough discussion of the leak."

Greenwald tweeted on Friday that he would join the hearing remotely.

Earlier this week, the House narrowly defeated a bill that would have curbed the NSA's ability to monitor millions of phone records in the U.S.
