Update on Russian Election Hack Suspect from Spanish Source

"A Russian computer expert was remanded in custody in Spain on Monday on suspicion of involvement in alleged hacking of the US presidential election campaign, a legal source said.
Piotr Levashov, who was arrested at Barcelona airport on Friday, has been singled out by the United States for extradition in a request which is due to be examined by Spain's national criminal court, the source said.

Levashov is "suspected of having participated in hacking the election campaign in the United States," the source said.

From the date of arrest, Washington has 40 days to present its legal case for extradition to the Spanish authorities."

Interesting that this release quotes its own "legal source", independent of the wifes statement to RT.

I think this is the real deal.
