To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

Any and all records relating to Russian spy Anna Chapman, including the name and position of the Obama Administration Cabinet Official she was "getting close enough to".

April 3, 2012: FBI Assistant Director of Counterintelligence, Frank Figliuzzi: Frank Figliuzzi, the FBI's assistant director of counterintelligence, said Miss Chapman's handlers at Russia's SVR (Foreign Intelligence Service) had intended her to be a "honeytrap" and she had got "closer and closer to higher and higher ranking leadership".

Frank Figliuzzi: "We were becoming very concerned," he told the BBC's Modern Spies programme. "They were getting close enough to a sitting US cabinet member that we thought we could no longer allow this to continue."

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Kenneth Whittle

From: Federal Bureau of Investigation
