Zynga founder Mark Pincus reportedly suggested to U.S. President Barack Obama that he pardon NSA leaker Edward Snowden, but Obama said he could not do that, CNN reports.
Pincus was among a group of tech executives who met with Obama and vice president Joe Biden yesterday to discuss ways of improving capacity issues with HealthCare.gov and the impact of the NSA. Among the executives present were Apple CEO Tim Cook, Twitter CEO Dick Dostolo, Netflix CEO Reed hastings and Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer. A source familiar with the meeting told CNN that Pincus made the suggestion to Obama.
The Washington Post also reports that the exchange took place, but does not identify the executive who made the suggestion.
We have reached out to Zynga for comment.
