The FBI rounded up a network of deep-cover Russian spies last year after the group came close to placing an agent near a Cabinet official in the Obama administration, a senior FBI counterspy said Monday as the bureau released once-secret documents on the case.
...U.S. officials said it was Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Mr. Figliuzzi said in an interview that the FBI decided to end its more than 10-year-long counterspy investigation of the network because of concerns that the spies were getting very close to their objective.
These 10 Russian officers were sent to the U.S. on a specific mission to get close to U.S. policymakers and leaders in our government, he said, noting that one had developed a friendship with someone close to a Cabinet official.
Mrs. Clintons spokesman at the time the case broke, P.J. Crowley, sought to distance her from the case, but did not deny that she was the person mentioned in court papers. There is no reason to believe that the Secretary of State was a special target of this spy ring, Mr. Crowley said in an email.
The spy who triggered concerns about high-level infiltration was Cynthia Murphy, later identified as Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) officer Lydia Guryev. Court papers say she met several times with a prominent New York-based financier active in political fundraising and described as a personal friend of a Cabinet official.
It was later disclosed that the financier was Alan Patricof, director of the venture capital firm Greycroft LLC and a donor to Democratic candidates, including Mrs. Clinton when she was a U.S. senator from New York.
Mr. Patricof said last year that he met Gureyev, whom he knew only as Cindy Murphy, several times and that she had been hired to do personal bookkeeping...

The Russkies need to get with the program! The Saudis already have an agent of theirs in Hillary’s bed for crying out loud!
Makes you wonder what was redacted from this story before it was released.
So how much was that Reset button really worth ? Perhaps we were the ones over charged ?
Roman Emperor Caligula made his horse, Incitatus, a consul, then a priest.
President Bill Clintigula made his wife, Cankles, a senator, then a foreign minister.
With an ass the size of Arabia and brain the size of a pea, Cankles is a world wide joke.
With politicians like these who needs foreign enemies?
What’s the big deal? It’s not like Russia is bent on destroying the United States from within. It’s not run by pinko commies or anything.
Wait ... what? Did I read “Russian spies?” As in, “spies, spies?” Like deep-cover, secret espionage stuff?
The agents had been sent by Moscow to the United States to obtain government secrets and to influence the U.S. government while posing as Americans or other foreign nationals in Washington, New York and Boston.
Twelve days after the arrests, the 10 agents were exchanged for four Russians who had been imprisoned in Russia as foreign spies in a prisoner swap not seen since the Cold War."
"FBI agents posing as Russians fooled spies Anna Chapman and Mikhail Semenko into giving up valuable information about the ring. They were the last two people in the ring to be confirmed as SVR officers, Mr. Figliuzzi said."
The hottie wasn't as good as promised.
No surprise - half the Chinese weapons buildup is based on blueprints handed over in exchange for Clinton campaign contributions.
The Russians came late to the game.
Dog it. The Roosky spy probably stood out like a sore thumb because he was more conservative than the rest of Obama’s cabinet.
I’m thinking Slick Willy and a Honeytrap were part of what has been “omitted.”
When are going to stop Saudi Arabia’s spies?
"Cindy Murphy" and her 'husband.'
I’ll never be able to look at the Hillary “reset button” incident in the same way again.
Well, one thing we don’t have to worry about is Obama being seduced by a beautiful female spy.
On the other hand...
“The spy who triggered concerns about high-level infiltration was Cynthia Murphy, later identified as Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) officer Lydia Guryev”
Let me guess...hussein will send her back to Russia so he doesn’t offend the bear in the back yard.
They missed the One right in front of their faces,HILLARY herself and her pig husband
