Glenn Greenwald: New NSA Leak From Snowden 'Very Imminent'

"One of the most important in the archive," says Greenwald

Today on MSNBC, Glenn Greenwald told host Ronan Farrow that a new document release from Edward Snowden is "very imminent," and called it "one of the most important in the archive." Farrow asked if there were any more disclosures to come that are significant. Greenwald indicated this is definitely the case:

Definitely, including one that is very imminent, that I've long considered to be the most important or one of the most important in the archive, which is the question of what kinds of American citizens are actually being targeted by the NSA for the most invasive kinds of surveillance.

Farrow further asked why the documents were being parceled out and released in stages, to which Greenwald answered that they were doing "actual journalism" and that it is time-consuming.

Greenwald also speculated that Russia would extend Snowden's asylum for at least another year, stated that other nations are debating offering asylum, and said that "for the foreseeable future [Snowden] is safely out of reach of the American penal system." Greenwald's revelations follow recent document drops showing the extent of Germany's cooperation with the NSA in surveillance.
