Or what if one was a disposed Russian official who was blackmailing our government with very sensitive information that he threatened to sell to Iran?
Or what if one was a billionaire banker who was running a deep-cover child prostitution ring throughout Eastern Europe that there was not enough evidence to bring down?
Or what if...
