Hour-long special promises revelations, discovery about leaker, his process
NBC News anchor Brian Williams has interviewed NSA document leaker Edward Snowden in Russia. The former NSA contractor's first-ever American television interview will air in an hour-long NBC News primetime special on Wednesday, May 28 at 10PM ET.
Williams' in-person conversation with Snowden was conducted over the course of several hours, and was shrouded in secrecy due to Snowden's life in exile since leaking classified documents about US surveillance programs a year ago. Williams also interviewed Snowden's compatriot, journalist Glenn Greenwald about how the pair came to work together and the global debate sparked by their revelations.
