4. More

Media reports in Russia say that an unidentified person opened fire from a Kalashnikov assault rifle near the headquarters of the Federal Security Service (FSB) in Moscow on December 19.

The shooting reportedly took place in a parking area and police cordoned the area.

There were conflicting reports about the number of casualties.

The Izvestia newspaper reports that three people were killed in the shooting.

Another Russian daily, RBC, quoted a source in the Moscow police as saying that one person might have been shot dead in the incident that took place near the Kuznetsky Bridge not far from Lubyanka Square.

Did Trump tell Sergey Lavrov the names of agents we have inside of the FSB?

9. Probably. Trump has given a LOT of sensitive intel to russia.

 

He is a traitor, and that should have been part of the impeachment.

15. That was in Dec. 2016 and the man was one of the key computer/cyber workers in Putin's

.... 2016 rat fucking of our elections. The meeting w/Lavrov and Kislyak with Trump in the
oval office was late winter/early spring 2017 but i have no doubt that Trump/Kushner/Manafort
all would have given up any Russians we had working for us inside of Russia.

18. This "thing" is so big that nobody outside of Putin and maybe Trump's consigiliere, Bill Barr know .

...all the moving parts. Putin has been cleaning up loose ends ever since the election. I feel bad
for the guy but some poor bastard got pushed out of a 5th story window by his bath tub in Moscow.

26. Right after the election, trump started getting security briefings,

IIRC, and Jared Kushner was still talking to the family friends in Russia. I believe trump and family are full-in on helping Putin root out our intel sources in Moscow.

27. No doubt .... once Trump was "elected" it was then time for Putin to start calling in his debt.

Flynn was doing this in his calls to Ambassador Kislyak in Nov. & Dec. 2016.

Trump and company have no problem with "giving up" people to hostile foreign leaders
look @ Kushner giving the PDB (Presidential Daily Briefing) papers (that are highly classified)
to Saudi's Crown Prince MBS who then turned around and used that info to kill the Washington
Post's Khashoggi. After which Trump and Pompeo ran a cover operation for the Crown Prince.

BTW Turkey's thug leader Erdogan knows all about this scam and now has leverage over Trump
so Trump gave him the green light to cross into Syria and kill our allies, the Kurds.

Trump and company are highly compromised as is all the republicans in Congress who took all
that Russian/NRA money.

babysitting and controlling the US political situation.

22. It was a male boss of Vesel-whats-her-face back in Russia.

He reportedly directed her activities. Helicopters do crash.

We do have suspicion that a 2015 death in a NY hotel room may have been a Russian hit on U.S. soil. Mikhail Levsin had been close to Putin, and I read the hotel room was paid or arranged by our justice department. Federal investigation concluded he died after multiple falls over a days-long drunk. Murder on U.S. soil would have been very risky under previous presidents.

24. Actually, we know they're worried about after Trump.

Before Trump was elected there was a big schism over the wisdom of taking us on. Now, after some huge victories internationally, and against us, but no lifting of sanctions, no ability to finally profit from their huge oil investments, only at best new sanctions not YET applied, they're once again looking to the time to pay the piper. There's a big reason why they're trying to make American voters believe it was Ukraine that was behind electing Trump, or attacked Trump, depending on faction.

Of course, their need to make sure there's no accountability under Democrats after Trump has to worry us. They had lots of room to back off in 2016. No more.
