NBC News -- Coming up Wednesday night, we’ll hear from Edward Snowden in an NBC News special.
The 30-year-old American who leaked intelligence secrets is now living in exile in Russia.
In the exclusive interview, Brian Williams asked him how he ended up there.
Brian Williams: “What are you doing in Russia?”
Edward Snowden: “So this is a really fair concern. I personally am surprised I ended up here. The reality is I never intended to end up in Russia. I had a flight booked to Cuba, onwards to Latin America and I was stopped because the United States government decided to revoke my passport and trap me in Moscow airport. So, when people ask, 'why are you in Russia?' I say, please, ask the State Department."
You can see more of Brian Williams’ exclusive interview with Edward Snowden tonight at 9 p.m. on WEAU.
