Skip to comments.FBI says Russian spies got close to Cabinet [Hillary Clinton]
Posted on 11/01/2011 12:33:20 AM PDT by iowamark
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
Female Russian spy trolling for lesbians.....
Everyone by now MUST know that Hitlery IS the deep-cover Russian spy!!!
the group came close to placing an agent near a Cabinet official in the Obama administration,
there already IS one ....Huma Amadin Weener
State Department riddled with commies???? Never.
Paging Joseph McCarthy...Mr. McCarthy you’re wanted on the red phone.
The spies were MINDERS to keep those around OBAMA and HILLERY in line FOR OBAMA and HILLERY. Any questions?
OBAMA and HILLERY have done more damage to this country than the RUSSIANS or MUHAMMADANS combined. Any question of that?
The FBI sure is saying a lot all of a sudden, aren’t they? As long as it doesn’t pertain to Gun Walker that is.
How many is that exactly? ;p
The SVR maybe had someone bed Hillary.
The real question is: did she know or did she not know the mole?
Inquiring minds want to know!
And the Muslims already have their boy in the White House, our first Muslim President. Imagine, an advisor from the Muslim Brotherhood and the headlines is about the Russians!
It's not THEORY it's CONSPIRACY FACT. They own the Demo Party and the idiot Republican's plan is to try to get power back with the next election.
It won't STOP until the Hangings for treason START.
Since when was the “Cabinet” - which is not even delineated as such in the Constitution, nor a legally defined entity - capitalized?

Maybe these disjoined sentences have a point that is Hillary Clinton is a Russian Spy???
Maybe by extention we can look at this article and note we have a muzzie sympathizer in the white house and put two and two together that is he is an agent of some foreign power.
Hillaryis low hanging fruit!
The US Dept of State is Liberal to a fault, a great divide across from which the American people employee at their great peril this current gaggle of gay friendly, socialist leanining, and hostile towards Republicans group which is capped at 15,000 US officers and specialists. Throw in a few covert types, the political appointees and U end up with the entire US Govt either a socialist mess or a capitalist mess with each administration.....
welve daysIIRC it's one more the leven and one less than hirteen.
How many is that exactly? ;p
Eyeze went to Chikago Skools, sow eyze beeze smartz in addin numbrz.
(But not sows good atz spellin stuff. For som reazon weeze used a lot of 'Zs'??)
An absolutely wicked comment! I agree.
1. why was this told to me?
2. why was this told to me now?
Russia is an oligarchy. This had to be more about business espionage...and embarassment coming to the Democrat Party from whatever secrets those 10 learned...
Yer killin’ me.
Russians are very good at honey potting and Americans are very suseptible.
I suspected, just from reading the headline, that it was Hillary. She and Bill are traitors. Onada is not a traitor because he is not a citizen. He is an enemy.
A billionaire hires a woman who claims to be politically connected as a personal bookkeeper? That he only met a couple of times?
Who does that except someone who wants to be intentionally fooled?
Will anything happen to a politically connected Commie who helped get this ring established with cover stories?
“Dog it. The Roosky spy probably stood out like a sore thumb because he was more conservative than the rest of Obamas cabinet.”
An absolutely wicked comment! I agree.
I hereby B U M P that !
Wait a minute. If they admit that Hillary is the deep-cover Russian spy, how come they say the network only got close to placing an agent near a Cabinet official?
Oh. Wait. I misread that. They're saying Hillary is the Cabinet official, not the spy.
...uh, the Russians have allies all through this regime. That piece of crap weapons treaty signed by Hussein early on, just after he seized power, was bad for America.
I would guess that “personal bookkeeping” is a euphemism for sexual services, and that she was bookkeeping for other wealthy Democrats.
But then they realized thad the spy and the target shared the same name and called off the mission?
