SnowdenEdward Snowden would be willing to enter talks with U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to negotiate his return to the United States but not without a guarantee of amnesty, his legal adviser said on Sunday.

Jesselyn Radack said she was glad Holder indicated last week he would talk to lawyers for the former U.S. spy agency contractor to negotiate his return from Moscow, but that Snowden would need better protection.

"It's a little disheartening that he (Holder) seemed to take clemency and amnesty off the table, which are two of the negotiating points," said Radack, who was interviewed via satellite from Moscow by NBC's "Meet the Press".

"But again, none of us have been contacted yet about restarting negotiations," the legal adviser said.

Holder said in an interview on MSNBC on Thursday the United States would not consider the idea of amnesty for Snowden "where we say, no harm, no foul".

Radack, who is the director of national security and human rights at the Government Accountability Project - a whistleblowers' organization - said Snowden has already suffered because his U.S. passport revoked has been revoked.
