Okay, so - let me get this right……
This guy, McGonigal, was head of counterintelligence for the FBI’s New York field office. Pretty big, important national security job, I’d say.
And he was arrested on Saturday & indicted today on four charges ranging from violating U.S. sanctions against Russia to laundering money for this oligarch, Oleg Deripaska.
Do I have that right, so far?
That one of the top guys in U.S. intelligence was in cahoots with a Russian spy?
And that this McGonigal guy was appointed to his post by Jim Comey a couple of months before the ‘16 election &, two weeks before the election, Comey announced that McGonigal’s investigation into potential Russian election interference turned up no evidence of it?
Is that all about right?
Yeah, it is.
So, regarding some of the U.S. intelligence aparatus, the words of Apollo 13 astronaut, Jim Lovell, come to mind:
“Houston - we have a problem.”
