Yet Another Friend of Boston Bomber Indicted

Lying to the FBI: Do this if your cornhole is eager for some company:

A third college friend of accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was indicted on charges he lied to federal investigators, the U.S. Attorney General for Massachusetts said in a statement on Thursday.

Robel Phillipos, 19, was one of the three people who removed a laptop and a backpack full of fireworks from Tsarnaev's dormitory room at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and later lied about it, days after the April 15 attack, prosecutors claim.

The two other students, Dias Kadyrbayev and Azamat Tazhayakov - both from Kazakhstan - have already been indicted and detained pending trial.

If you have the kind of friend who needs you to protect them from the FBI ..... get new friends.
