A former top FBI official has been arrested and charged with four crimes over his connections to a Russian oligarch sanctioned by the U.S.

Charles McGonigal, a 54-year-old former special agent in charge of the FBI’s Counterintelligence Division in New York, was arrested Saturday evening, according to the Justice Department. He’s facing four charges, including money laundering, for covertly providing services to the oligarch Oleg Deripaska, violating U.S. sanctions.

Sergey Shestakov, a Russian interpreter, is facing the same four charges and an additional count of making false statements during an FBI interview.
