Wochit 1:02 mins

NSA leaker Edward Snowden has been granted temporary asylum in Russia and has left the Moscow airport where he had been stranded for more than a month. The move by Russia unleashed a wave of criticism from American politicians. Sen. Robert Menendez, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said ?this action is a setback to U.S.-Russia relations.? Senator Charles Schumer urged President Barack Obama to retaliate against Moscow for granting asylum to accused national security leaker Edward Snowden by recommending that the upcoming G20 economic summit be moved outside of Russia. President Barack Obama announced that he will nominate John Koskinen, a veteran of both public service and the private sector, to take over the embattled Internal Revenue Service.
