    Feds arrest 10 accused of being Russian agents

    CNN News states,

    Ten individuals have been arrested in the United States on charges of being Russian agents, the Justice Department announced Monday.

    The 10 were "trained Russian intelligence operatives," a Justice Department spokesman said.

    All were charged with acting as agents of a foreign government, and nine also were charged with conspiracy to commit money laundering.

    The Justice Department said the 10 arrested and another person not yet in custody were part of an operation aimed at recruiting intelligence agents, but were not directly involved in obtaining U.S. secrets themselves.

    Some of the suspects adopted phony identities, including those of dead Americans, officials said.

    The 10 who are in custody were scheduled to appear in court Monday in New York, Boston, Massachusetts, and Alexandria, Virginia.

    Each of the 11 suspects have been charged with conspiracy to act as an agent of a foreign government without notifying the U.S. attorney general, a crime that carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison, the Justice Department said. Conspiracy to commit money laundering has a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.

    The case resulted from a "multiyear investigation" conducted by the FBI, the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York and the Justice Department's National Security Division, according to a Justice Department statement. The 11 suspects were charged in two separate criminal complaints.

    A Russian Embassy spokesman said Monday that he was unaware of the reports of the arrests, and said he is seeking more information from Russian officials.

    I thought this was interesting. Like i saw on the news last night that on an US Airways flight a passenger brought on some meat and it went bad there were maggots and they had to turn the plane around. I mean where the fuck is the security there lol. Now the russians to get back on topic are quite baffling.
