Father of NSA Leaker: Son Being Manipulated by Wikileaks

The Father of NSA leaker Edward Snowden believes his son is in hiding because he is being manipulated “by people at the Wikileaks website.”

Lonnie Snowden believes his son is trapped and looking for a way out. 

He admits his son broke the law by releasing classified information but does not think he committed treason or “[betrayed] the people of the United States.” 

According  to the Associated Press, Snowden’s father told NBC that his son might “voluntarily return to the U.S. if the Department of Justice promises not to hold him prior to trial and not subject him to a gag order.”
