If the objective of the 10 SVR sleeper agents was to gain access to U.S policy makers and advisors as stated by the FBI's indictment
of the agents, then they certainly succeeded.
Amb. Mark Lagon of the State Dept recently had lunch at the Peacock restaurant with someone connected to the deported SVR agents.
Joseph K Grieboski maintains a "friendship" on Facebook with Maria Semenko (sister of Mikhail Semenko)
Grieboski boasts friendships with policy makers in the beltway and with many D.C "Think-Tankers".

Gaining access to those policy makers is not cheap so Grieboski is also a large financial contributor - 1, 2, 3 - and many others.
It looks like Amb. Lagon is going to be receiving a visit from DSS, as they understand the most valuable intelligence gathering
tool in the beltway is RUMINT (Rumour Intelligence). The peacock Cafe in D.C is a frequent hangout of U.S politicians, the cafe's
website highlights photos of SECSTATE Clintons visits.
An interesting note about Mikhail Simenko's Facebook profile, is that soon after his arrest his profile was public, then was private
and is now public again with several photo changes. Someone is updating this profile, but who?
