Former National Security Agency intelligence analyst Edward Snowden will plug his memoir through interviews on MSNBC and CBS on Monday, offering some of his first media interviews in years.

Snowden will appear in interviews on "CBS This Morning" and with MSNBC's Brian Williams, where he'll be interviewed about his disclosure of leaked documents in 2013 as well as his new book, "Permanent Record," which will be released on Tuesday, statements from the networks said.

Snowden's interview was to appear in full on the morning CBS program Monday. MSNBC reported that clips from the interview are to air throughout the afternoon and evening across the network's programming, with a special edition of "The 11th Hour With Brian Williams" to feature the full interview Monday night. 

Snowden has also been talking to the international press in interviews being billed by many media outlets as "exclusive."

He told The Guardian in England that he is reconciled to remaining in Russia for many more years after fleeing in exile there in 2013 following revelations that he stole files and leaked them to the media.

Snowden said he worries the United States and other governments are determined to create a permanent record of everyone on Earth.

According to his memoir's publisher Metropolitan Books, a division of Macmillan Publishers, Snowden talks in his book about his role in accumulating metadata and his decisions leading him to steal files in 2013 and leak them to the press.

Intelligence officials say Snowden caused lasting damage to national security through his actions, but privacy advocates praise him for revealing how much information the government gathers against its citizens.
