Last week, Edward Snowden’s Russian lawyer said he had sent Lon Snowden the required invitation to visit the country, a step toward securing a travel visa. Anatoly Kucherena said he hoped a visit would happen in the coming days.
Fein says the trip would happen “very soon.”
Russia’s decision to grant Edward Snowden temporary asylum angered the U.S. government and scuttled Obama’s plans for a one-on-one meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in visit Moscow next month.
Lon Snowden said the political outrage in Washington would fade and added “the American people are absolutely unhappy with what they’ve learned — and more is going to be forthcoming.”
“Where my son chooses to live the rest of his life is going to be his decision. But I would like at some point in time for him to be able to come back to the U.S.,” Lon Snowden said.
Lon Snowden and Fein spoke on ABC’s “This Week.”
