John Brennan: “Well yes, I — as a young analyst, I wouldn’t have had direct interaction with Andropov, but I have studied Russian intelligence activities over the years, and have seen it — again, manifest in many different of our counterintelligence cases, and — and how they have been able to get people, including inside of CIA, to become treasonous. And frequently, individuals who go along that treasonous path do not even realize they’re along that path until it gets to be a bit too late. And that’s why, again, my — my radar goes up early when I see certain things that — I know what the Russians are trying to do, and I don’t know whether or not the targets of their efforts are as mindful of the Russian intentions as they need to be.”
