Obama: U.S. Pursuing ‘Appropriate Legal Channels’ To Obtain Snowden

President Barack Obama said Monday that all the “appropriate legal channels” are being followed to bring the source of the National Security Agency leaks, Edward Snowden, back to the United States.

Prior to a meeting with business leaders on immigration reform, a reporter asked whether Obama had spoken with Russian President Vladimir Putin about securing Snowden. The president responded that the White House is “working with various countries to make sure that all the rules are followed,” according to a pool report.

Obama referred further questions to the Department of Justice.
