Spy swap puts halt to fact finding - Washington Times

Quote(Public trial of 10 Russian agents could have led to revelations)

What revelations?

Quote(The Obama administration's rapid release of 10 Russian intelligence officers removed the prospect of a public trial revealing embarrassing facts about Russian influence operations, like the targeting of a key Democratic Party financier close to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.)

Wonder what these folk have done that could possibly embarrass them if publicly revealed?

Quote(The swap of the 10 "illegals," or deep-cover agents, last week — 12 days after their arrest — also prevented trial disclosures of other potentially embarrassing details, like the identities of what an FBI criminal complaint described as a "former legislative counsel for the U.S. Congress" and "former high-ranking United States government national security official" both of whom provided information to two Boston-based Russians in the case. Both officials' names were omitted from the complaint.)

Murkier and murkier, do I sense something similar to a Watergate emerging?
