SPY PURGE! Russia charges agents with treason, accuses them of leaks to U.S.

Trump’s BFF Vladimir Putin is purging Russia of spies suspected of leaking intel to the United States.

Watch below:

More from CNN Money:

There’s a purge of spies underway in Moscow, where two high-ranking Russian security service agents, a cybersecurity expert and a fourth man have been charged with treason for passing along secrets to American intelligence, according to a lawyer defending one of the men.

The men were charged “with treason in favor of the United States,” said Ivan Pavlov, the lawyer for one of the defendants.

So far, the counterintelligence raid is targeting computer security professionals — men once trusted with Russian government secrets about hacking operations.

The crackdown comes shortly after the U.S. intelligence officials in October officially accused Russia of using hackers to try steering the presidential election to Donald Trump. American officials have never stated that Russian government insiders gave them information that led to that accusation.

Hmmm.. so Trump gets into the White House and suddenly his BFF discovers spies in Russia giving secrets to the United States intelligence agencies that Trump is in charge of… Weird.
