Edward Snowden Denies Being Helped by Russia: I'm Still Not a Spy

Despite contention by US government


Following another round of accusations that he is a spy, probably for Russia, Edward Snowden spoke to The New Yorker's Jane Mayer to once again deny that he was working for another country when he leaked all those NSA documents.

Both Meet the Press and This Week took Snowden on, with Rep. Mike McCaul tellingGeorge Stephanopoulos that he believed Snowden was a traitor and "cultivated by a foreign power to do what he did"—though he would not say which foreign power he suspected. Rep. Mike Rogers was more specific, telling David Gregory he didn't think it was a coincidence that Snowden ended up in Moscow, and Snowden had "some help" in his actions.
