The Washington Free Beacon reports discussions between the Justice Department's National Security Division and Plato Cacheris, a long-term Washington defense lawyer representing Edward Snowden, could reach an agreement on allowing the whistleblower back into the country. Specific details of the talks are unknown, however, reports say a plea deal could be reached resulting in Snowden returning to the U.S. under the condition of lesser chargers in exchange for returning the large cache of documents taken by the former NSA analyst. Snowden was charged with three espionage related offenses in June of 2013, including theft of government property, unauthorized communication of national defense information, and willful communication of classified communications intelligence information to an unauthorized person.
