House members urge Obama not to pardon Snowden
WASHINGTON - The House Intelligence Committee is urging President Barack Obama not to pardon National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden.
A committee report calls Snowden a "serial exaggerator and fabricator" who doesn't fit the profile of a whistleblower.
And a bipartisan letter sent to Obama says that Snowden's claim that he stole the information and disclosed it to protect Americans "is undercut by his actions."
Snowden's attorney denounces the report and calls his client a "genuine American hero."
