A deal returning NSA leaker Edward Snowden to the U.S. is not entirely out of the question, according to Eric Holder.
The former U.S. Attorney General told Yahoo News, “I certainly think there could be a basis for a resolution that everybody could ultimately be satisfied with” to return Snowden from his current asylum in Moscow. “I think the possibility exists,” he said.
Holder, who is going back to work at the law firm Covington & Burling, where he worked before serving as Attorney General, said that Snowden’s actions “spurred a necessary debate” on surveillance in America.
“We are in a different place as a result of the Snowden disclosures,” he said.
