The fact that we go off three arrests are related to the case.
Wherever they fit in right now what does it tell us about the planning.
Kill you first.
Well I think first of all it goes to show us if the US attorney has -- provided documents that that instigated the -- is that there's been thought behind it that -- information that is supportive of not just you respite eventual prosecution could -- US attorneys always going to be concerned about.
You know Canada -- prosecutors have their behind it then their carbon emissions been gathered.
I would probably take -- to do is that mean for people who think that this case for some reason has stopped just with these two.
Two Brothers and has not expand -- further this is an international investigation.
The FBI as well as a law enforcement agencies are working with.
The the Russian.
Law enforcement services to find out where if there's any connection has any connection over in -- -- -- Russian.
Obviously even supporting some of the concerns of Russians have been as well as here really -- over every rock possible.
Just I think.
Because of the the immediacy and the urgency to know whether anyone else was either complicit knowledgeable -- -- -- supporting these are terrorists are.
Tom where are now being told that the -- that we previously knew about it who will be -- -- and an immigration hearing this morning.
I have now been charged.
-- instructions -- those two.
The we already knew about it appear to be part of the three we don't know who the third suspect is yet those two -- from Kazakhstan as we understand it.
And they he would.
Taken into custody April 21 accused of violating this student visas but now it he has.
That there's charges of obstruction and it.
We're being told again by -- -- it justice that at some point off to the bombings.
When the two Brothers were on the run.
These two from -- -- went to Joseph 'cause apartment took some computers and other equipment.
At some point then they decided to try to dump the equipment so right that's a construction jobs correct I know them and may also may have lied about it to -- an FBI agent or agents.
Which is a federal crime ultimately doesn't it doesn't necessarily mean they were involved in the planning of this it means that Joseph -- said to them maybe.
Hey guys having some trouble can you go grab these computers or it could mean something a -- less than act.
Actually being part of the planning of the attack it may have been -- after the fact.
That makes -- no less guilty than the being part of the conspiracy is just after the fact and that's what the federal system in the federal charges will take into account.
But -- they also lied to a federal agent we didn't do any thing we didn't speak to warm so long -- Did charge you what they call the federal system as a 101 charge lying to a federal agent unlike.
If you like to -- police officer there is no charge -- most states.
In the federal system if you -- a federal agent -- so -- whose cross designated.
As a federal agent there is -- charge and you can be charged not -- with him structure but also belonging.
Right now -- Did -- Tom Tom and I bumped into each other in the bathroom earlier which is an entirely different.
Right the company does anybody -- -- you to have with your your two different backgrounds.
You can -- to a call.
You don't -- to the FBI they don't take very kindly to it so there's a lot being told here that's serious.
-- in the view of the FBI.
Very serious an affect people may recall Martha Stewart's case have been -- -- Martha Stewart is that.
She spent time in jail for doing just that it it wasn't so much as what she was involved in but she had lied to.
Two federal agents who were investigating.
Has been a stock issues -- -- -- that.
Is that he can be anyone and we've seen a number of charges against people who lied to federal authorities in this case Jonathan it's interesting to and I believe.
Two of these people -- to you mentioned here well also pictured in a photo that was taken.
With the the young suspect here in Times Square just about a year or so ago.
So apparently at least if it's the same -- with speaking about they knew each other for a -- -- wasn't just that they were -- roommates but they're really just.
-- -- are actively you know trying to just just getting just one additional thing.
You remember the FBI and local police search that -- You over the weekend so I could have been related write a simple I had heard maybe -- -- by -- again -- getting -- -- this is breaking as we as we speak is above that with us.
While we gather the facts we don't want to get ahead of ourselves and calls on any of this.
But a lower enforcement source -- telling Reuters.
That in the authorities investigating whether these costs -- and these are the two apparently from Catholics on.
To -- likes of Joseph because science -- -- way.
Some kind of knapsack at his request that would fit with the narrative that we were telling you about apparently taking some sort of computer equipment.
From his home bit perhaps it was in that that putting and -- and as the guys are saying here.
Was service over the weekend now we're being told.
The -- person.
I was now in custody in this is somebody we had not good for all biffle we don't know.
Who it is but again law enforcement source telling really -- news agency that that third person is a US citizens so.
A week and you know there's no way we can speculate -- know who that might be at this point could be.
A friend could be a relative.
Could be anybody who they believe did wall.
-- -- -- -- who may have contributed to hiding evidence or destroying evidence that the FBI and local police are looking for.
The key here is not if -- US citizen north there -- foreign citizens it's what they did relative to this investigation that's going to be Paramount.
As they go forward in the US attorney and the FBI -- look at the charges.
It's not going to be where they're from its gonna be what they did and what what they know in covering -- up when they're part of a plot or where they involve just afterwards.
The computer we know that the FBI has been looking for because it may contain relevant information of who we was contacting.
What information he got what instructions he may have done and we -- he got the bomb making information or instructions on how to make.
He's fine until the fact that it's the Boston Police to -- and also tweeted.
Today is no threat to the public safety.
Does that indicate that these as as Tom was saying more likely to have been involved in some kind of cover -- paid.
This is joke I mean trouble let me -- -- get help and did something like that rather than were actually part of the initial plot.
Well I would I would stay -- I wouldn't take and our feel like that I would just say is that that they don't feel -- through these people or there are others out there who currently planning any further attacks and has no immediate.
Jeopardy to the public.
But you know we we don't know yet whether they had any -- -- knowledge or whether they in some way.
They said if they -- pictured in a photo here in Times Square and later we heard.
During a carjacking that they said they were -- -- be on the way to New York City to bring these other bomb devices with them.
Was that part of some type of reconnaissance mission we don't know that so I think it's very broad at this point that these people could have some involvement could be everything from.
As -- said lying to to federal agents as well as covering up.
We're destroying evidence or or items at the request of -- when the suspects were acquitted and further back where they had some.
Inkling goes to -- -- Jonathan though that in these cases of anyone.
Has any information about people who have any thoughts of doing.
Anything even if they just discuss it.
Does have -- -- they've actually put together a bomb and -- -- delivered the view to discussing.
It's putting together device in planning something maybe -- but the authorities otherwise they can become complicit you know in an investigation like this -- face federal drug.
Out what little before I let you guys go -- festival how much heat is the wife.
Widow of talents and I have Kathryn Russell.
Now feeling from the authorities what kind of been investigative.
It's pressure would she be on the right now a lot of dimensions it content -- to me she has hired an attorney to protect her rights which he -- what every right to.
It doesn't indicate to me that she's guilty of any -- It's really to preserve her rights is -- citizen could.
Hire an attorney at any time.
But at this point in time if she had anything to do with this.
They eventually will falling down and they will -- -- and anything that she knows that he would be at her best interest to tell them.
And to get it out there and have the FBI be able to follow up on --
