WASHINGTON — A few members of Congress are now saying they believe the government should attempt to work out a deal to return Edward Snowden to the United States.

The National Security Agency's loudest critics have remained largely quiet on what should happen to Snowden, the former contractor who leaked documents to reveal the extent of the agency's massive domestic surveillance programs. But after the New York Times editorial board called for clemency for Snowden, several members of Congress have said that the United States should at least be flexible when dealing with Snowden.
