Thousands of Recorded Phone Calls Helped FBI Investigate Sale of Suspicious Electronics to Russia
Federal agents investigating a Houston business that is accused of sending microelectronics that can be used for weapons and radar to Russia spied on damning phone calls, the Houston Chronicle reports.
One of the most revealing phone calls that helped the FBI was a phone call between an ARC Electronics manager and college newspaper reporter who inquired about the business’ ability to get around strict export laws.
“We’re lying,” the manager said, according to the Chronicle.
In another call, among thousands recorded by the FBI, a company manager told a Russian employee, “We will be f—–,” if someone found out about the exports, the Chronicle reported.
