The US president has admitted some Americans' trust has been shaken by the Edward Snowden revelations. He is promising a 'definitive statement' on the matter in the new year.
Many of President Barack Obama's key achievements, like health care reform or the Iran deal, could be diluted or erased by the new Trump administration. But there are at least two historic successes that won't go away.
A computer, a treadmill, a cat - Julian Assange does not have many diversions. The WikiLeaks founder has been holed up at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London since 2012, with no sign he will be able to leave anytime soon.
The Russian Foreign Ministry has said that Snowden can continue to stay in the country. The announcement came one day after Obama commuted fellow whistleblower Chelsea Manning's prison sentence.
A simmering dispute between President Barack Obama and his incoming successor Donald Trump looked destined to boil over. However, a call from the President appears to have at least momentarily eased tensions for now.
