Charles Schumer “Irate” Over Russian Asylum For Snowden
New York's Senior Senator Charles Schumer is not happy that Russia has granted NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden asylum. After the news came down that Snowden would be granted Russian asylum, Schumer released a statement saying, "Russia has stabbed us in the back, and each day that Mr. Snowden is allowed to roam free is another twist of the knife."
Schumer went on to say that Snowden is a "coward who has chosen to stay on the run."
The Senator then said he will urge President Obama to move the G-20 summit, which is set to be held in Russia next month.
