Newly Declassified House Intel Report on Snowden Is “Rifled With Obvious Falsehoods”
THE HOUSE PERMANENT Select Committee on Intelligence on Thursday unveiled its full 37-page report on its three-year investigation into Edward Snowden, drawing even more criticism for conclusions that have been called biased by supporters of the former NSA contractor.
The report, released just days before a holiday weekend, is an extended version of a highly acerbic — and disputed — unclassified summary the committee published in September, describing the former NSA contractor as a “serial exaggerator and fabricator.”
Snowden and other critics have vehemently denied the report’s conclusions.
