According to CNN, a Russian spy was caught working at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow for over a decade before being fired previous year.
The British daily alleged in its report that: "The Russian national had been hired by the US Secret Service and is understood to have had access to the agency's intranet and email systems, which gave her a potential window into highly confidential material including the schedules of the president and vice-president".
The Secret Service has dismissed the report that a Russian employee at the US Moscow embassy, who was reportedly fired after her contacts with the Russian intelligence came to light, had access to secret data.
The security office found the woman was having regular, unauthorized meetings with the Russian intelligence service, the FSB.
The senior administration official told CNN that the regional security office alerted the embassy in January 2017 and that the woman was caught red-handed and fired in the summer of that year. She was sacked last summer around the time that 750 US personnel were ordered to leave the mission by the Russian government as retribution for USA sanctions.

Secret Service spokesman Mason Brayman, speaking to Russia's TASS news agency, also reiterated that foreign nationals employed by the US Secret Service can not have any access to the information pertaining to matters of national security.
