Well, I guess it's a start

CNN just aired a segment on the Russian agent who was rearrested 24 hours ago, but what's a day or two when it comes to breaking news right?

Both legal experts said it was an astonishing and unbelievable case and the fact that his lawyers might be helping him escape is jaw dropping. One couldn't believe the judge would actually say that, and predicted that Smirnov will be jail until trial.

As they showed footage of the dude with his attorneys, he was masked as were they. I find that suspicious. And again, where is his mugshot?

Given the significance of the story though, I still think the relative lack of interest in it is infuriating. If D's were using a Russian agent to attack precious cheato there would be wall to wall coverage.

... to catch the GOP flat footed. I think this guy has been under a Federal thumb since before Hunter started showing up to be interviewed by Jordan's committee.

There's one hell of a New Yorker story here. Can't wait until Ronin Farrow writes it.

Looks that William Barr and others are his eyes knee deep in the shit mountain.

Smirnov's attorneys look bad too if actually were helping Smirnov to skate.
