The FBI has apparently interviewed some people at the security firm Kaspersky Labs.

Kaspersky is a company based in Russia of all places !

Evidently Kaspersky is involved in some cyber security operations?

This could be part of the Special Counsel Mueller investigation.

This is according to "multiple sources familiar with the matter"

What's the "angle" here?

story from NBCnews:
FBI Interviews Employees of Russia-Linked Cyber Security Firm Kaspersky Lab

FBI agents on Tuesday paid visits to at least a dozen employees of Kaspersky Lab, a Russia-based cyber-security company, asking questions about that company’s operations as part of a counter-intelligence inquiry, multiple sources familiar with the matter told NBC News.

In a classic FBI investigative tactic, agents visited the homes of the employees at the end of the work day at multiple locations on both the east and west coasts, the sources said.

There is no indication at this time that the inquiry is part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election meddling and possible collusion. Kaspersky has long been of interest to the U.S. government.

Of coarse it has to do with the investigation that U.K. Truth just eluded to is not going on, not 10 min ago!!!!!



The right seem to think everything is peachy, when the findings of the investigation has not even been made public yet!!!!

Oh in another thread UKtruth was basically saying the Russia investigation is not news. When it clearly is.

I do not think the has to be an angle - Kaspersky has been in the game since the infancy of the world wide web, and he employs some pretty decent techies. They are definitely potentially of interest in a "counter-intelligence inquiry".
