Russian Exiles Have a High Death Rate In the UK; Tillerson Fired For Naming Putin as Killer-in-Chief? Putin Must Have Proof of Trump’s Collusion in the 2016 Election


This morning (California time) the Guardian reported that Russian exile Nikolai Glushkov had been found dead in his London home.  Mr. Glushkov had been imprisoned in Russia on a probably trumped up fraud charge and gave evidence in the UK for Boris Berezovsky when he sued Roman Abramovich (another oligarch who is still “on friendly terms with the Kremlin”) in British court for an alleged five billion pounds fraud in 2011.  That didn’t go over too well, and was on appeal.  Then Boris died in 2013, found hanged in his bathroom; apparently the coroner was not convinced it was suicide, but had no better ideas.

On March 4 of this year, another Russian exile, Sergei Skripal, and his daughter Yulia, were found critically ill in a park in Salisbury, UK.  Yesterday PM May denounced the Russian government, saying that her chemists (in the US sense, not pharmacists) had found definite evidence of a Russian nerve agent known as a Novichok (“newbie”) as the cause of their poisoning and the concomitant critical illness of a British first responder, as well as the contamination of as many as 500 British subjects in the vicinity.  She gave the Russians twenty-four hours to explain; instead, today they demanded access to samples of the purported nerve agent– samples which probably do not exist, as the lethal dose of this agent is said to be 10 milligrams (less than a thirtieth of an aspirin tablet.)

Today Rex Tillerson was out at the State Department.  Apparently he was fired without warning or explanation.  According to CBS News, his statement read, in part: “The Secretary did not speak to the President and is unaware of the reason, but he is grateful for the opportunity to serve”… The operative word here is serve; in this sense anyone who works in US government is serving his master, Don the Con.  Tillerson is trying to say that he has been serving “the public”, as in “public service”, but that is just a weasel word for being close to Mr. Trump and doing his bidding.  Apparently, accusing the Russian tyrant of poisoning refugees from his domain and standing by countries that accept such refugees is not doing Mr. Trump’s bidding.  Once again, we see that Mr. Trump is unable to criticize Mr. Putin in any way, shape, or form– why is that?  Just what does Putin have on Trump?  Given the Stormy Daniels story, it seems petty that a tape of Russian prostitutes performing “golden showers” for the golden boy could constitute “kompromat”– it is impossible to shame someone who is shameless.  What Putin must have on Trump is documentary evidence that Trump collaborated (not just colluded) and conspired with Putin to “rig” the 2016 election so that Trump could become President.  That’s the only kompromat that is serious enough to keep Trump dancing to Putin’s tune this long.
