Was This Russian General Murdered Over the Steele Dossier?

Was this man killed over the dossier?

The dossier on Donald Trump compiled by former British intelligence operative Christopher Steele—which made headlines for its salacious, unconfirmed passage about Trump and hookers performing for him in a Moscow hotel room—has been denounced by the president’s people as fake news, of course.

But the document was a mixed collection of information and allegations far more precise than the rumors about compromising sexual activities, and some of what's in it may have unnerved not only Trump, but the Kremlin, where hunting down leaks can take a fatal turn.

FBI director threatened to resign amid Trump, Sessions pressure to fire deputy

Wray threatened to resign because of pressure from Trump, Sessions

Attorney General Jeff Sessions — at the public urging of President Donald Trump — has been pressuring FBI Director Christopher Wray to fire Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, but Wray threatened to resign if McCabe was removed, according to three sources with direct knowledge.

  • Wray's resignation under those circumstances would have created a media firestorm. The White House — understandably gun-shy after the Comey debacle — didn’t want that scene, so McCabe remains.
  • Sessions told White House Counsel Don McGahn about how upset Wray was about the pressure on him to fire McCabe, and McGahn told Sessions this issue wasn’t worth losing the FBI Director over, according to a source familiar with the situation.
  • Why it matters: Trump started his presidency by pressuring one FBI Director (before canning him), and then began pressuring another (this time wanting his deputy canned). This much meddling with the FBI for this long is not normal.

Hush money Trump’s lawyer allegedly paid Stormy Daniels broke election laws, new complaint charges

Story Daniels and Donald's hush money

A good government group filed complaints against President Trump’s campaign charging his lawyer’s payment of hush money to a porn star who allegedly had an affair with Trump broke election laws.

Common Cause lodged the complaints with the Department of Justice and the Federal Election Commission Monday. They say the reported $130,000 payment by Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen to adult film star Stormy Daniels constituted an in kind contribution to Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign — which the campaign failed to report as election law requires.

“The American people expect and deserve transparency when it comes to money spent to influence elections and those requirements are not optional no matter how embarrassing the reason behind the expense,” said Common Cause president Karen Hobert Flynn.

Some names sound familiar, like Stephen Bannon and Donald Trump Jr., but most don’t. Taken together, they illuminate the way federal investigators are assembling the pieces of the Russia puzzle.

The probes have also touched 53 foreign nationals including 39 people with direct ties to Russia.
