Report: Snowden in Plea Talks With US
National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden is talking to the U.S. government about a possible plea deal on charges that he stole some 1.7 million top-secret documents, according to The Washington Free Beacon.
Snowden would plead guilty to lesser charges in exchange for returning the massive cache of documents he stole and later leaked to media outlets, reports the Free Beacon’s Bill Gertz. He is charged with conveying classified information to an unauthorized party, disclosing communications intelligence information, and theft of government property. Each charge carries a maximum of 10 years in prison.
