A plea for clemency made by Edward Snowden, the National Security Agency contractor who fled to Russia after leaking classified information about surveillance methods used by the United States, was rejected by the White House as well as the heads of the top intelligence agencies in the country.
That’s the message Obama senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer relayed on ABC’s “This Week,” adding that no such offers for clemency are being discussed and that Snowden should return to the U.S. and face charges.
“Look, Mr. Snowden violated U.S. law,” Pfeiffer said. “Our belief has always been that he should return to the U.S. and face justice.”
