Rumor: Russian regime considers giving Edward Snowden as “gift” to Trump

Source: New York Daily News

“Russia is considering sending surveillance leaker Edward Snowden back to the United States as a ‘gift’ to President Trump, according to a report. Snowden fled his job as an NSA contractor in 2013, when he leaked a trove of documents to journalists that exposed widespread surveillance on ordinary Americans through the bulk collection of metadata. He fled to and was granted asylum in Moscow, though two unidentified officials told NBC News that internal Russian deliberations show conversations about using him to ‘curry favor’ with the new administration.” (02/10/17)
