Government Seeks Edward Snowden's Book Profits in Lawsuit Alleging NDA Violation

Government Seeks Edward Snowden's Book Profits in Lawsuit Alleging NDA Violation | 17 Sept 2019 | The DOJ alleges Snowden breached secrecy agreements signed in connection with his work for the CIA and NSA. President Donald Trump's Department of Justice didn't try to stop Edward Snowden's book Permanent Record from being released Tuesday -- but it still sued him over it. Snowden's memoir, according to its preface, is an explanation of how he came to become a notorious whistleblower who has spent nearly a decade in exile after leaking classified documents about government surveillance operations. According to the complaint, which was filed Tuesday in Virginia federal court, Snowden's work for the CIA and NSA required secrecy agreements. The DOJ argues that he violated his "non-disclosure obligations to the United States" by not handing over the book for review before it was published.
