Russia is considering sending Edward Snowden back to the U.S. as a “gift” to President Trump, a report says.

A senior U.S. official with knowledge of sensitive Russian intelligence information told NBC News on Friday that they would be handing over the NSA leaker in the attempt to “curry favor” with Trump.

Snowden’s ACLU lawyer, Ben Wizner, said he was unaware of such plans.

“Team Snowden has received no such signals and has no new reason for concern,” he said.
