FBI says Russian spies got close to Cabinet [Hillary Clinton]
Washington Times ^ | 10/31/2011 | Bill Gertz

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. Clinton’s 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...

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?

"Ten of the Russian agents were arrested on June 27, 2010. An 11th, the group’s spymaster Christopher R. Metsos, escaped arrest while in Cyprus.

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.

whoa

welve 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.

those 4 had to be pretty important. course, the 10 were so compromised that they were no longer useful to either side.

No surprise - half the Chinese weapons buildup is based on blueprints handed over in exchange for Clinton campaign contributions.

The Russkies need to get with the program! The Saudis already have an agent of theirs in Hillary’s bed for crying out loud!

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?

“In the U.S., the cabinet has no legal definition. It is just the secretaries of the departments, and a few other key players.” (http://www.usconstitution.net/consttop_cabi.html)

The Cabinet (as of October 22, 2010):

The President (Barack Obama)
The Vice President (Joe Biden)
Secretary of Agriculture (Tom Vilsack)
Secretary of Commerce (Gary Locke)
Secretary of Defense (Robert Gates)
Secretary of Education (Arne Duncan)
Secretary of Energy (Steven Chu)
Secretary of Health and Human Services (Kathleen Sebelius)
Secretary of Homeland Security (Janet Napolitano)
Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (Shaun Donovan)
Secretary of Interior (Ken Salazar)
Attorney General (Eric Holder)
Secretary of Labor (Hilda Solis)
Secretary of State (Hillary Clinton)
Secretary of Transportation (Ray LaHood)
Secretary of Treasury (Timothy Geithner)
Secretary of Veterans Affairs (Eric K. Shinseki)
Ambassador to the United Nations (Susan Rice)
Chief of Staff (Pete Rouse)
Council of Economic Advisors Chair (Austan Goolsbee)
Environmental Protection Agency Administrator (Lisa Jackson)
Office of Management and Budget Director (Jeffrey Zients [acting])

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.

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.....

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.

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?

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.
