SHOCKER. You Won't Believe Who Employed the "Former Soviet Counterintelligence Official" in Trump Meeting

Naturally, the same cadre of NeverTrumpers and anti-Trumpers were quick off the mark tying this guy, Rinat Akhmetshin, by inference, to the KGB/SVR/FSB and to the Trump campaign. Sometimes to read this stuff you’d think there was a law against using Google or maybe your brain.

There is a problem with this story. Rinat Akhmetshin works for/with Fusion GPS.


Oh. Well. That seems relevant.

All right, so it was a sting by the Dems aimed at the politically naif Trump Jr. But the Dems weren't competent enough to carry it off even though they obviously have great chunks of the FBI and the CIA in their pockets. Is the US exhibiting the quickest decline ever from formidable empire to universal laughing stock?
