Revelations by Edward Snowden in 2013 that the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) had eavesdropped on the phone of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other leading European politicians caused a scandal and rift between German and U.S. relations that is still being echoed in current political debates.
