The US state Department during the inspection stated suspicions against the Russian, which for 10 years had secretly met with the FSB.

In a statement last night, the US Secret Service, said the woman would not have been able to obtain national security information.

The discovery of a suspected FSB mole on its staff within the USA embassy in Moscow would be hugely damaging to its reputation and could have severe consequences for the safety of other Secret Service staff and those it is mandated to protect.

According to the Guardian newspaper account, the woman had worked at the Embassy for more than a decade and had access to the intranet and email systems of the Secret Service, as well as its counterfeit-money tracking operations. Now the Secret Service is being accused of trying to cover up this incident rather than making an honest attempt at solving the problem.
