This is silly.
Even if he got amnesty, the secrets are still in his head and so the gov't would still have him on a hit list. And I doubt they'd give him amnesty to get documents/files because they have been out for a long time and lots of people could have seen them and made copies.
This story makes no sense to me. Unless it's a carrot being dangled to get Snowden to mess up and show himself so the gov't can go in and 'take care of business' (kill him and confiscate documents .... that kind of thing).
But amnesty? Nope. Not real .. IMHO.
Makes one wonder how deep down the rabbit hole his 2 million files go.
Snowden will not make a deal, he will continue spilling the beans until everyone's painfully aware of how corrupt our society is and his data is all out in the open. we are in a time of getting rid of the old ways and starting a new way and in order to do that, the dirt must all come out first.

Seems plausible that he would have a death plan in effect. A major dump of all his secrets if he dies unexpectedly. If he knows what he knows, then I am sure he would know all "their" strategies for "quietly" making someone and all their family members go away. Most importantly, they can't be trusted. Could be suicidal for the letter agencies to off him.
