US President Donald Trump says he will look into the case of NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. At the time, he still wanted to have him executed.

US President Donald Trump wants to consider a pardon for whistleblower Edward Snowden, who revealed the sprawling surveillance system of American intelligence agencies seven years ago. He was not particularly familiar with the matter, "but I will look into it," Trump said Saturday (local time) in response to a question from reporters at a press conference. Snowden was granted asylum in Russia, where he was stranded during his flight.
