In the days of communism in Russia, political prisoners were taken to the infamous Lubyanka Prison by the KGB in the center of Moscow to be tortured and killed. The new KGB, now called the FSB occupies the same facility, and still does the work of the KGB under Putin.
There now is ample data to charge the Chumph with Treason. The reason that hasn’t happened is sell-out Republicans are blocking the investigations and Congressional action. It would seem that not only the Chumph is a Traitor.., but a number of Republicans in Congress.
The people being charged here helped the US Government identify the network of hackers who suborned the US election. From hacking Democrat email and servers, to manipulating the electronic voting machines in at least two states, and funding the Trump campaign with dirty money, the Russians went all out to install their boy – Putin’s Bitch as president.
These people were sold out by the Chumph.
Russian news agencies are reporting that former members of the domestic security agency and a cybersecurity expert have been formally charged with treason.
Reports emerged last week that three officials of the Federal Security Service (FSB) and an executive for cybersecurity company Kaspersky Labs had been arrested for treason. Government officials haven’t commented on the case.
Speculation on the arrests ranges from fallout from alleged Russian hacking of the U.S. presidential election to a power struggle within Russia’s security service
Ivan Pavlov, a lawyer specializing in treason cases, was quoted by the Interfax and state Tass news agencies as saying that FSB officials Sergei Mikhailov and Dmitry Dokuchayev, and Kaspersky’s Ruslan Stoyanov, were charged on Wednesday.
Pavlov has told The Associated Press that he represents the fourth, unnamed arrestee.
“Everyone involved in the case is charged with treason, and in fact, this is the only article, no other charges,” Pavlov is quoted as saying to Tass. Like Interfax, Tass is controlled by the Russian government.
According to Pavlov, the criminal case is being investigated by the FSB’s own Department of Investigation.
Men, women, and even children were tortured and murdered at Lubyanka. Some things seem not to have changed.
Investigators accuse the defendants of transferring Russian state secrets to U.S. intelligence services, according to Tass. Unlike previous reports in Russian media, the accounts citing Pavlov that were published Wednesday do not specify which U.S. agencies the suspects are accused of colluding with.
“The name of CIA does not appear in the case, only the country (is mentioned),” Tass quotes Pavlov as saying. “Yes, we are in fact talking about America, but not about the CIA.”
Kremlin spokesman Dimitry Peskov denied any link between the people charged with treason and the Russian hacking of U.S. Democratic institutions in the run-up to the presidential election in November, which Moscow has also denied.
“No matters of this sort can have any relation to such absurd insinuations (of Russian cyber meddling in the U.S. election process) or, as we have already said, we categorically deny any assertions about the possible complicity of the Russian side in any hacking attacks,” Tass quoted Peskov as saying.
The Kremlin spokesman also said that while he could not confirm President Vladimir Putin was aware of all the details of the treason charges, “this issue is not for the first day discussed in the media, so along with the other materials, of course, these reports were presented to the president.”
