Who Else is Spying Here for Putin?

Yesterday, the United States joined the United Kingdom and twenty other allied nations in expelling purported “Russian diplomats.” This action has been been portrayed as a demonstration of solidarity with Britain after Vladimir Putin’s regime used military nerve agent to try to kill a turncoat and his daughter there.

Actually, it’s a long-overdue counter-intelligence measure, made necessary by Russia’s espionage operations in this country said to be even more aggressive than during the height of the Cold War.

The question is: How many more Russian spies remain? Of particular concern are so-called “illegals,” like those who had penetrated the political machines of Hillary Clinton and Sen. Chuck Schumer and were sent packing in 2010 – before they could be properly interrogated.

As a career spy himself, you can bet Putin will keep his comrades at it in this country.  Roll them up.
