      Snowden: I Am Not a Russian Spy


      The Independent reports former NSA-contractor and whistleblower Edward Snowden has strongly denied allegations by members of the US Congress that he has been acting as a spy for Russia.

      Snowden dismissed the theory in an interview with the New Yorker, says The Independent, stressing that he “clearly and unambiguously acted alone, with no assistance from anyone, much less a government.”

      “It won't stick, because it's clearly false, and the American people are smarter than politicians think they are. This Russian spy push is absurd,” he said, adds The Independent.
