That is a possibility, too.

Would take well-placed people with a lot of money behind them. This wasn't a sloppy assassination.

Nope. It shows openmindedness.

You cannot cherry pick the narrative you want to be true.

There's meaning to this operative's assassination. I agree that it could mean either thing, really.

Are you willing to consider that it could mean that the dossier is legitimate?

Interesting that he was left to be found rather than a vanished-into-thin-air assassination.

Are there any twitter feeds that are following this?

Could be a message to others who are considering leaking information that this might be a poor idea.

This would account for the public nature of this poor man's demise.

I put up a thread about how Roger Stone survived an assassination attempt, and many of you said it was fake news. This stuff is out there.

Did anyone note this from the article?
He then allegedly wrote a 35-page report consisting of memos compiled before and after the November 8 election which was later partly funded by Democrats as well as the anti-Trump Republicans.

I think we should surrender to the Russians. They have taken down the most powerful nation in the world on the pauper's budget of the Italian economy, and less than a 1/3 of our population. They did this by somehow predicting a reality TV star would one day become president. Everyone else was laughing, but they knew specifically to put KGB assets on him and profiled him perfectly since its unusual that people liked to be peed on, even by sexy prostitutes. . I feel like they can almost read my mind with such precise psychological and political profiling. Their single media outlet, RT , was able to concoct propaganda that CNN, ABC, NBC, FOX , Salon, Buzzfeed, and the entire media establishment could not disentangle. Surely they have done the same with Steven Seagal who will likey be appointed by the Kremlin in 2024. I hope he had a good time and it was worth it . But how did they know that Steven Seagal, or one just like him would win? He seems a has been action star today. How do they know he is going to run? How do they know he will win? Why bother to struggle with such a superior civilization ?

usually spies don't go into hiding over alternative facts. Not to mention they wouldn't have much of a future as a spy afterwards.

Hey! You just gave an idea. I willing to make Steven Segal ambassador to Russia......if he and Putin are willing to have a live sparring match. Aikido vs Judo. Should be entertaining...and will may help foster martial spirit around the world.

Only five days after Trump takes office and Russia pops four alleged spies.

Coincidence?

Interesting, do you still think the dossier hasn't been discredited?
