July 12 (Bloomberg) -- Oregon Senator Ron Wyden has been a lonely critic in Congress of the government's surveillance programs, but the Intelligence committee member thinks that's starting to change in the wake of the NSA leak controversy. "I think that elected officials and Americans are starting to reject this idea of a false choice where they can either have their security or their liberty," he tells host Peter Cook on "Capitol Gains." Wyden says he sees bipartisan support for legislation to scale back the programs, but wishes Congress had started this debate and not Edward Snowden. The Energy Committee Chairman also discusses the shale energy boom, the prospects for natural gas exports and the Keystone XL pipeline debate. (Source: Bloomberg)
