An NSA employee has admitted allowing Edward Snowden to use his computer credentials to access classified information, and has resigned, according to an FBI memo.

The unidentified employee was not aware that Snowden intended to use the password to obtain classified material for the purposes of disclosure, said the memo, which was first reported by NBC News.

The employee is one of three individuals who have been under investigation for their unwitting involvement in Snowden’s effort to remove the material in what may well be the largest breach of classified information in history.
