it's always been possible there were other triggers. Though the
coincidence of all these events is still weird.

Filling in a few blanks of the story--if true, doesn't sound like Comrade
J was actually a trigger, or possibly even involved at all.

Russian double agent 'helped crack' US spy ring
AFP - 54 minutes ago
MOSCOW (AFP) - A-c-A*A* A Russian spy ring broken by the United States
this summer was detected with the help of a Russian intelligence agent
whose daughter lives in the United States, the Kommersant daily reported
The respected business daily identified the Russian accomplice as
Shcherbakov, a colonel with the Russian foreign intelligence service.
It said Shcherbakov fled Russia for the United States three days prior to
Russian President Dmitry Medvedev's June visit to Washington.
The paper cited sources as saying that Shcherbakov's son also quit his
post with the Russian drug control agency and fled to the United States
shortly before Washington revealed the spy ring that month.
His daughter has long lived in the United States, the paper said, without
providing further details.
"It seems odd that no one bothered to check why a person of that rank has
a daughter living in the United States," Kommersant quoted an unnamed
intelligence source as saying.
Shcherbakov himself turned down an important promotion last year,
suggesting that he had already been working with Washington, the paper
The group of 10 spies, many of whom had been working for years undercover
in the United States as sleeper agents, returned to Russia in a July spy
swap that saw Moscow send four Russian convicts to the West.
Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, who served as a Soviet foreign intelligence
agent in East Germany, this summer denounced the then-unnamed Russian
collaborator as someone whose life will end "with boozing or drugs,"
