FBI Says Russian Spies Got Close To Obama Cabinet Member

Bill Gertz, the outstanding national security correspondent at the Washington Times, reports on why the FBI rolled up the Russian spy ring last year.

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.

Frank Figliuzzi, assistant FBI director for counterintelligence, did not identify the Cabinet official, but other U.S. officials said it was Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
