I think he's handling this very well

I get what you are saying, but I think he's better off playing it close to the chest. The US gov't is well aware that he had access to sensitive, and embarrassing or harmful material, and I have no doubt he has some sort of "insurance plan" in place. However, I think stating that publicly would play into the spin that "He's a traitor!" -kind of making him look like the bank robber demanding to be put on the next flight out of town.
