WASHINGTON, DC (KRON) — Russia is considering sending Edward Snowden back to the United States as a “gift” to President Donald Trump, according to NBC News.

Trump had called the NSA leaker a “traitor” and “spy” who should be executed, NBC News reported.

NBC cited a senior U.S. official as their source.

Snowden took to Twitter to respond to NBC’s report on Friday, saying that the new report from NBC News is proof that he was never a spy.

Snowden is a former CIA employee who leaked top-secret information about U.S. surveillance programs.
