A day or two ago Russian publisher Novaya Gazeta reported that Russian intel officer Sergei Mikhailov was arrested, dragged out of a meeting with a bag over his head, and hasn’t been seen or heard from since. MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow reported or passed along that Mikhailov was charged with treason.

It’s also come out that Ruslan Stoyanov, a cybersecurity official with a private firm, was recently arrested on “suspicion of treason.”

Yesterday I tweeted and Facebook-posted a Telegraph story, written by Robert Medick and Robert Verkaik, that said a British asset who may have leaked to Christopher Steele the existence of Donald Trump’s alleged pee-pee blackmail video is now dead, apparently murdered.

Here’s a take on the general situation by Christo Grozev.

This is about Vladimir Putin, who is tactically no different than Al Capone at the height of his powers in 1920s Chicago, putting a lid on things.

My dream (and it’s only a dream at this point) is that the real story will one day come out, and that the facts will lead to Trump’s impeachment for treason.
