Last week, Snowden’s father wrote a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder proposing that Snowden would come back on his own to face trial in the U.S., so long as he could remain free prior to trial, would not be subjected to a gag order and would be tried in a place of his choosing.

In an interview with NBC News, Lon Snowden also expressed concerns about Snowden’s connections to WikiLeaks and Julian Assange.

Snowden, who has been charged with espionage for leaking classified documents detailing National Security Agency surveillance activities, is currently in Moscow after traveling there from Hong Kong.

He has applied to asylum in 20 countries, but many have rejected the request.
