Russian anti-virus CEO offers up code for US govt scrutinyMOSCOW (AP) — The chief executive of Russia's Kaspersky Lab says he's ready to have his company's source code examined by U.S. government officials to help dispel long-lingering suspicions about his company's ties to the Kremlin.

In an interview with The Associated Press at his Moscow headquarters, Eugene Kaspersky said Saturday that he's also ready to move part of his research work to the U.S. to help counter rumors that he said were first started more than two decades ago out of professional jealousy.

"If the United States needs, we can disclose the source code," he said, adding that he was ready to testify before U.S. lawmakers as well. "Anything I can do to prove that we don't behave maliciously I will do it."

Kaspersky, a mathematical engineer who attended a KGB-sponsored school and once worked for Russia's Ministry of Defense, has long been eyed suspiciously by his competitors, particularly as his anti-virus products became popular in the U.S. market. Some speculate that Kaspersky, an engaging speaker and a fixture of the conference circuit, kept his Soviet-era intelligence connections. Others say it's unlikely that his company could operate independently in Russia, where the economy is dominated by state-owned companies and the power of spy agencies has expanded dramatically under President Vladimir Putin.

Image: Cruz, Lee Quietly Negotiate Healthcare PlanThe many dynamics at play in the Republicaneffort to change the nation's healthcare system from Obamacare are centered presently in the Senate as lawmakers work to craft legislation that has a good chance of becoming law. 
The factions within the Republican party have not as yet agreed on a final plan that will appeal to moderates as well as conservatives.

While Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell appointed a working group of 13 members who drafted a plan behind closed doors, more conservative GOP Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Mike Lee of Utah have worked on their own quiet effort for a new healthcare law, Politico reported Saturday.
The two are holding firm in their belief any plan would need to offer Americans the opportunity to choose whether or not to participate in Obamacare. Both Cruz and Lee were elected on a platform of repealing Obamacare, but Lee indicated he could accept giving people a choice instead of a full-blown repeal.

"We campaigned on repealing Obamacare for eight years. At a bare minimum, we should allow those Americans who want to opt out of Obamacare to do so," Lee told Politico.
