First I have to give a shout-out to Bill Palmer at The Palmer Report. I encourage you to support this publication, They’re doing the kind of insightful and fearless work that is needed now more than ever. And they have been all over the various and, at times, complicated twists and turns of the Russiagate story.
Trump’s ties to Russian mobsters and Bankers and Intelligence Officers is deep.
The FBI seems to have been working the Russian Mob angle for some time now and they have started making arrests.
The Russians have been playing Team Trump, and playing them hard.
And they may have tried to further compromise General Mike Flynn with a Russian female spy.
And The Washington Post is reporting that Trump’s Secretary of Education, Besty Devos’ brother, Eric Prince, owner of notorious for-profit mercenary organization, Blackwater, met with Russian officials on Trump’s behalf just prior to the inauguration.
But as Palmer Report says, this may all come down to money laundering.
Below is a link to Keith Olbermann’s podcast about Mikhail Kalugin, the Russian spy in American who was running the American election operation.
One thing I think Keith overlooks here, though, is Cambridge Analytica is actual the brainchild of our friend Robert Mercer. Bannon’s work with them is secondary.
