FBI Denies Russian Spy Was Getting Closer to Obama’s Inner Circle

A controversy is brewing over the Russian spy ring the feds busted up in 2010.

USA Today reports that the FBI is denying a report that the feds shut down the probe into the spy ring because one of the spies, the glamorous Anna Chapman, was “edging closer to President Obama’s inner circle.”

The FBI denied that allegation in a report that a top counter intelligence official during a BBC interview made that suggestion.

USA TODAY reported that the FBI issued a statement on the matter: “Mr. Figliuzzi’s comments to BBC were consistent with and confined to the information outlined in the criminal complaint that was filed nearly two years ago. There is no allegation or suggestion in the complaint that Anna Chapman or anyone else associated with this investigation attempted to seduce a U.S. Cabinet official.”
