    “Peter Carr, a spokesman for the U.S. Justice Department’s criminal division, said: “The U.S. case remains under seal, so we have no information to provide at this time.””
    “A U.S. Department of Justice official said it was a criminal matter without an apparent national security connection.”
    “In January, Spanish police arrested another Russian computer programmer, whose name was given as “Lisov” and who was wanted by the United States for leading a financial fraud network.”

    That is the extent of factually accurate information in that “news” piece.
