Trail of dead Russians confirmed

Over the past year, an alarming number of prominent Russians have been murdered or suspiciously dropped dead – many of them with direct connections to Donald Trump’s Russia scandal. Palmer Report and others have tracked these strange deaths as they’ve happened, and they’ve included everything from a guy dying of a “heart attack” with severe head wounds, to a guy being dragged away with a bag over his head. Now we’re finally getting confirmation that the “trail of dead Russians” is every bit as real – and every bit as Trump related – as we’ve long suspected.

Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS, the company that hired former MI6 agent Christopher Steele to research and assemble the Trump Russia dossier, testified before the House Intelligence Committee months ago behind closed doors. Those transcripts were finally released to the public today. Simpson confirmed that after his company’s dossier became public, Russian President Vladimir Putin “purged” his own people whom he suspected were connected to it.

Simpson said that to the best of his knowledge, the people killed by Putin weren’t actually his company’s contacts for the dossier, and that they were other people in the Kremlin ranks whom Putin suspected may have been United States assets. In other words, once the details of the Trump-Russia conspiracy began to publicly surface, Putin decided he needed to wipe out anyone who might be giving up knowledge of what really went on.

In other words, this confirms once and for all that the “trail of dead Russians” was in fact a result of Donald Trump’s Russia scandal. This vindicates all of you who have spent the past year following that trail, and who could see that it wasn’t mere happenstance. So much for those who tried to dismiss it along the way as a mere conspiracy theory; the trail was always clear.
