Report: Venezuela President Offers Asylum to Edward Snowden
Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro has offered asylum to NSA leaker Edward Snowden, according to Reuters.
Snowden is reportedly hiding out in Moscow as he awaits word from countries on whether they would extradite him to the United States. The U.S. has charged him with espionage for revealing details of the National Security Agency's (NSA) surveillance of U.S. citizens and foreign nations such as China.
Earlier Friday, Nicaragua's President Daniel Ortega said he was open to granting Snowden asylum, as well.
