In an interview to be broadcast Sunday, Feb. 2, on 60 Minutes, Kelley tells correspondent Lesley Stahl how the investigation nearly destroyed his life and career. The broadcast airs at 7 p.m. ET/PT
For years, an elite team of government spy-catchers thought Kelley, a decorated veteran of the CIA, was a spy and launched the most intense mole-hunt in U.S. history to prove it. In the end, Kelley was exonerated and the FBI's Hanssen – one of the most dangerous spies in U.S. history – was unmasked.
Stahl's report also includes an exclusive interview with the FBI's top spy-catcher, David Szady, who ran the investigation. Szady says he wouldn't change the way his investigation was conducted because evidence justified it, and ultimately, it was successful in catching Hanssen.
