US Justice Department sues Snowden over new book
The US Justice Department on Tuesday filed a lawsuit against Edward Snowden seeking to prevent the former CIA employee and National Security Agency contractor from profiting from his new book.
The civil lawsuit against Snowden, who is living in Russia after leaking information about the US government's mass surveillance program, accuses him of violating non-disclosure agreements he signed with the CIA and NSA.
The lawsuit says Snowden published his book, "Permanent Record," which went on sale on Tuesday, without submitting it to the agencies first for pre-publication review.
