WATCH: Russian Hacker Arrest Video, LinkedIn Hack Suspect Busted

Police video cameras were rolling as cops in the Czech Republic, in a joint operation with the American FBI, arrested a man suspected of being a Russian computer hacker — a hacker who, investigators believe, targeted cyberattacks against the United States.

While it was unclear if the suspect was linked to hacks that the United States says are intended to influence the presidential election, ABC News reporter Mike Levine reported that a suspect arrested in Prague was connected to a “major hack” of the business-networking social media site LinkedIn.

Again, whether the LinkedIn suspect is the same man shown under arrest in the above video remains unclear.

The alleged Russian cyber hacker was busted back on October 5, according to The New York Times, but the arrest was not revealed until today, October 19.

A major hack of LinkedIn took place in 2012 and as late of May of this year, confidential details from more than 167 million LinkedIn user accounts were being sold and traded online, via the “dark web,” that is, on sites not accessible to search engines such as Google.

An Australian data security expert, Troy Hunt, created a database for users to easily check whether their information has been hacked, either as part of the LinkedIn hack, or hacks of other popular sites such as the data storage site DropBox.

News of the Russia hacker arrest comes on the same day as the third and final presidential debate between Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton. The U.S. election — specifically, Clinton and the Democratic party — has been rocked by repeated leaks of confidential emails and other documents stolen by hackers and, in most cases, posted by the online site WikiLeaks.

The following report by CBS News contains further information on the arrest.

On October 7, two days after the arrest shown in the Czech police video, the Obama administration formally accused Russia of sponsoring the hacking attacks in an attempt to influence the U.S. election — presumably in Trump’s direction. Trump has frequently praised the leadership of Russian strongman Vladimir Putin, even saying just this week that he “could see myself” consulting Putin as part of his transition team, should Trump win the November election.

The man under arrest in the above video was identified only by the name Yevgeniy N., according to an NBC News report. He remains in Prague, Czech Republic, as a court there rules on his extradition to the United States.

Czech police said that the man was apparently so shocked by the arrest that he collapsed and required hospital treatment.

The Czech police also said that the man “drove around in a luxury car with his girlfriend.”

  1. Wow. Another very clear attempt by the MainScream Media to influence the voter with their lie that it’s the Russians that hacked Hillary Clinton. The last thing I knew the Czech Republic was an independent Republic, separate and apart from Putin’s Russia. But of course, they held this news until today (the last Presidential debate) for the greatest harm to Trump possible. And STILL THE QUESTIONS REMAIN AS TO HILLARY’S CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR. She continues to appeal to the American People to be their Commander in Chief! With a “friend” like Hillary, who needs any enemies????

    • Hillary Clinton, said why am I not 50 points ahead !!

      What, she really was saying to the media, would you need to start putting me with higher points over Donald Trump, in the polls !!

      Sources : Expected Hillary Clinton to face Federal charges in US courts, but Hillary Clinton still is driving around in a luxury car !!

      The FBI, the Department of Justice ,and branches of the White House or corrupt !!

      They have overlooked this corruption for their own, personal and political gain !!

      The Obama Administration is pulling out all the stops !! because Hillary Clinton is losing in the real world polls! !!

      President Obama is more than happy to stand up and and cry ,about something that is not happening or never happen !!

      President Obama and his administration are claiming ,that Russia is sponsoring the recruitment of hackers !!

      This is all Make-Believe !!!!! But ! Hillary Clinton, believe she was under gunfire,on a Tarmac !!

      She also believes, it was a video that killed Americans in Benghazi !!

      Hillary Clinton can not determine reality from fiction, is this due to her sickness ? Her mental stability ,to run as president of United States, are the stories of dementia true ?

      Hillary Clinton has never denied those stories .
      I believe she is mentally unfit, and the media and the Obama Administration know this and they’re trying to cover it up .

      • Obama does not like America ,Obama thinks it’s funny, that he is doubled the national debt, trying to make our young children use the bathroom together, that’s right you’re a good Muslim, keep up your attacks on the Constitution and the American people.
