This case would make a good novel ...... a double agent, politics, sex. Curious as to why the FBI decided to search her luggage.

>"Katrina Leung has been charged with passing on classified nations security information to China, allegedly obtained from her lover and FBI "handler", James Smith.

Mr Smith has also been charged with gross negligence after allegedly allowing her access to secret documents during "debriefing" sessions at her home.

Correspondents say that the scandal could prove a great embarrassment to the FBI and the Republican party, with whom Ms Leung - a Los Angeles socialite - had close links."<

This should be an interesting story to follow. Sounds like it would make an interesting "Bond"-type movie! LOL!

>"Leung became a prominent Republican fund raiser in California in the 1990s, officials said. Smith assisted with the FBI's investigation into whether China tried to influence U.S. elections in 1996, officials said.

Mueller said the Justice Department's inspector general's investigation will explore why safeguards failed to detect the misconduct sooner and where accountability lies."<
