Law enforcement sources say the FBI has arrested an agent of Pakistan's official state intelligence service, accusing him of making thousands of dollars in political contributions in the United States without disclosing his connections to the Pakistani government.
He's the exective director of a group called the Kashmiri American Council
A call to the Kashmiri American Council's office in Washington went unanswered this morning
U.S. officials say there's no reason to believe that members of Congress or other organizations that received his contributions were aware of his government connections.
Yes that would be the most interesting part of the story. And it's not in the story.

To whom, is the question.
I went to the link in the OP but it was vague.

Who is he/Pakistan giving contributions to? And also, why?
Inquiring minds want to know.
The story doesn't say.
I don't know how ludicrous it is, but I must admit, I'm very skeptical of that claim too! Perhaps some were well aware of the connection to Pakistan while others weren't? I don't really know. But I did find that hard to believe.

But to say that there's no reason to believe those lawmakers knew his connections is ludicrous
