Suspected Russian agents want to plead guilty: U.S.

NEW YORK (BestGrowthStock) – All 10 people accused of being undercover Russian agents while living in the United States want to plead guilty, a U.S. prosecutor told a court hearing on Thursday.

The plea agreement could be part of a swap of imprisoned spies between the U.S. and Russian governments, possibly resolving an international scandal that came to light when U.S. counter-intelligence authorities arrested 10 people last month on suspicion trying to infiltrate U.S. policymaking circles.
