Edward Snowden

Senators Suggest Moving G20 Summit Due to Snowden

Scheduled for St. Petersburg, Russia, in September


Two senators are urging President Barack Obama to consider a new location for the September international summit in St. Petersburg, Russia, if Moscow continues to allow NSA leaker Edward Snowden to remain in Russia.

Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer and Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said Friday that they have introduced a resolution encouraging Russia to turn Snowden over to the United States. Snowden, the American accused of leaking information about U.S. surveillance programs, has asked Russia for temporary asylum.
