Yesterday, I offered some informed speculation about possible links between espionage arrests in Russia and America's reaction to the Russian hacking of our elections.  I have updated the post today to reflect new information -- namely that it appears the arrests pre-dated the public DNI report in January to which I linked them.  Obviously that weakens the connection between the two events.  The new data (at least new to me) is sufficiently significant that it warrants a post of its own.  I have also updated the original posting.

[UPDATE:  Since the story keeps changing, this Russian language report (which I read using Google Translate) says that another FSB arrest occurred today.  This may, of course, only relate back to the December arrests .... or it may relate back to the January DNI report.  Or, neither, though Radio Free Europe, says there is a connection to the Russian election hack.]
