Holder: No Clemency for Snowden But Agrees to ‘Conversation’

Amidst increasing pressure to grant clemency for NSA leaker Edward Snowden, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said Thursday that he would “engage in conversation” with Snowden as long as he pleaded guilty first.

New York Times: “Mr. Holder, speaking at a question-and-answer event at the University of Virginia, did not specify the guilty pleas the Justice Department would expect before it would open talks with Mr. Snowden’s lawyers.”

The Attorney General refused to offer clemency but “instead, were he coming back to the U.S. to enter a plea, we would engage with his lawyers.”
