‘Won’t seek death for Ed Snowden’

Attorney General Eric Holder has told the Russian government that the US will not seek the death penalty for former National Security Agency systems analyst Edward Snowden.
In a letter dated July 23, the attorney general said the criminal charges Snowden faces do not carry the death penalty and that the US will not seek the death penalty even if Snowden were charged with additional death penalty-eligible crimes. Holder says his letter follows news reports that Snowden has sought asylum in Russia.
