Former Russian spy reveals Vladimir Putin's "who to poison next list." Christopher Steele is on it, but guess who isn't.

Courtesy of The Mirror: 

A Russian spy who defected to Britain today reveals he was also poisoned – and claims he is on a hit-list of EIGHT targets he says Vladimir Putin wants dead. 

Boris Karpichkov says he survived an assassination attempt – but lost nearly five stone and all of his body hair. 

The ex-KGB major has since learned of seven others – including double agent Sergei Skripal – he believes the Russian President wants to execute. 

In a terrifying development, Karpich­kov says he has been warned to watch for weapons disguised as e-cigarettes but which conceal deadly nerve gas.

 Karpich­kov does not believe he will see his next birthday, and he has reason to worry since the Kremlin was most likely behind the poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter.

Others that  Karpichkov identified as being on Putin's hit list include the following:

  • OLEG GORDIEVSKY, 79 . MI6 spirited Britain’s top Cold War double agent out of Russia in 1985 in the boot of a Ford saloon. He has provided British Intelligence with information ever since. 
  • BILL BROWDER, 53 . A US-born British financier banned from Russia in 2005. Interpol rejected Russian extradition requests after Browder was sentenced in his absence to nine years for tax fraud. 
  • CHRISTOPHER STEELE, 53 . Former MI6 officer running private intelligence firm. Made ­unsubstantiated claims of Russian spies holding compromising video of US President Donald Trump cavorting with prostitutes. 
  • IGOR SUTYAGIN, 53 . Russian nuclear weapons specialist accused of spying for Britain, for which he served 11 years for treason. Swapped in 2010 along with Skirpal for Russian sleeper agents in a US spy network including femme fatale Anna Chapman. 
  • YURI SHVETS, 65 . Former KGB major who defected to America in 1994. A key witness in the police investigation into the 2006 poisoning of former spy Alexander Litvinenko. 
  • VLADIMIR REZUN (alias VIKTOR SUVOROV), 70 Captain in GRU Soviet military intelligence until his defection to Britain in 1978. Now writes controversial books on Soviet military history.
I would remind you that Putin is not the only one targeting Christopher Steele: 

Two Republican senators have called for the investigation of Christopher Steele, the former British intelligence officer who compiled a dossier on alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. 

In a letter to the US justice department, Charles Grassley and Lindsey Graham claimed there was reason to believe that Steele had misled US authorities over his contacts with journalists and called for him to be investigated. 

The letter, the first criminal referral from Congress since it started investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 elections, comes at a time when Republicans are seeking to divert those investigations from scrutinising Donald Trump’s links to Russia to focus instead on whistleblowers, the FBI, and the special counsel investigating the issue, Robert Mueller.

Christopher Steele is not an American citizen and yet he felt obligated to reveal to the US authorities that the Republican candidate for president might be compromised, and for his trouble he is marked for death by the Russian leader and is the target of an investigation by the Republicans attempting to protect that Kremlin agent who now resides in the White House.

You know we need more Americans like British citizen Christopher Steele. Individuals who actually put their lives at risk protecting the interests of the United States of America.

As I allude to in my headline one of the prominent names missing from this list is Donald J Trump. And I imagine there are no other Republicans that should fear being added either.

Nor anybody in the Trump White House for that matter as they even refused to identify Russia as the culprit behind these recent attacks. 

But you can bet your ass that if Hillary had been elected she would be at the very top of this list, with an added financial incentive included for the agent who managed to take her out.

    It seems like the Russian people are not well represented. Poisoning people, killing people and drugging Russian citizens into submission is very KGB old fashion. They would fair well if they elected a more moderate person that wants to get along in this world and advance all people and countries. The power struggle is useless and worthless. Putin wants and needs the sanctions lifted. His dictator mentality is not only harming his country but innocent others. There is no honor in corruption and you are not a strong leader. You are a bully.

      How are they suppose to elect a more moderate person if Putin is the only one on the ballot. He kills off any opponents before the election.

      Maybe you should do a little reading about putin's russia before you judge the people of russia

    "“Vladimir Putin treats us with total disdain and disrespect. Many members of the Putin regime have come to buy property in the UK and it should be seized.

    “If the Government continues to allow Russia to get away with murder, they will murder me one day.”"~IT~ may well have come into their calculation that Brexit means Britain has isolated itself, so there might be more chance of getting away with ~IT~." "Using a nerve agent shows they don’t fear our response. Part of the point is they want people to know they did ~IT~."

    The California Democratic Party had a lot of fun in an email this morning, with suggested travel tips for Donald as he arrives to make a big deal out of prototypes for his stupid and ineffective "wall" with Mexico. Maybe it will work to distract the 22% and maybe that's all he cares about.

    Anyway, the email's tips for Donald are hilarious:

      I hope the California folks booed the heck out of Trump when in southern CA today that there were many rallies along the route his vehicle took once he landed at the airport.

      Flipping him off would have been fun to do too!

      Thank you for NOT welcoming him to your great state, Governor Brown! I wouldn't have either!

    The Walls Are Closing In on Trump

    Nunes’ ‘investigation’ has shown Washington at its worst. It’s been a pure exercise in protecting Trump, and a low point for the GOP’s reputation as the party of national security.

    ...The reality is that Mueller has built a case slowly, carefully, and methodically as Trump continues to set his case on fire with obvious obstruction and manic tweets. The Senate inquiry, too, is serious, bipartisan, and delving into the places, people, and issues the House Intel Committee ignores.

    As Fox News, talk radio, and Trump-centric clickservative media chant “case closed,” Trump is already tweeting IN CRAZY GRANDPA ALL CAPS his amplification of House Intel’s “report” to convince his credulous base that the story is over and to call for the dismissal of Mueller and the end of the Senate probe.

    His audience will believe it. Bob Mueller, the Senate, and the intelligence community have other ideas.

    It is so apparent that Putin and Trump are in bed together.

    America! Get rid of the guy that is leading your country into an abyss! Smarten and/or wise up! And, while you are at it, get rid of Republicans in office throughout the country.

    Trump, his family and associations have clearly disappointed mr putin today. Their failed attempt to deceive the people around the world did not work out.

    Judge tells Manafort that he ‘faces the very real possibility of spending the rest of his life in prison’

    Politico reports that a new ruling by U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III that was made public on Tuesday reveals that the judge believes Manafort is a significant risk to try to escape custody because the weight of evidence against him appears to be so strong.

    “Given the nature of the charges against the defendant and the apparent weight of the evidence against him, defendant faces the very real possibility of spending the rest of his life in prison,” wrote Ellis, who recommended that Manafort be kept on “24-hour-a-day lockdown” at his residence in Alexandria, Virginia.

    Per the judge’s ruling, Manafort is only allowed to leave his residence for medical appointments, and for legal meetings and court appearances related to the multiple money laundering charges being leveled against him.

    GOP’s Russia collusion cover-up implodes in less than one day

    Revelation after revelation makes a mockery out of the "no collusion" claim.


    Panicked White House orders three firings before noon

    After the firings of Rex Tillerson, Steve Goldstein, and John McEntee, get ready for more wheels to come off of this White House.

    House Republicans might be doing their best to provide political cover for Trump by waving off the burgeoning Russia scandal. But the controversy continues to take its toll. And Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was only the first to be felled by it.

    Special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation continues to loom larger. And the the day-to-day workings of the White House now seem to regularly careen out of control.

    Tuesday morning was a perfect example of an administration that seems gripped by panic.

    Indeed, what’s more extraordinary: Firing your secretary of state via Twitter, then firing his deputy because he went off script about the firing, or also firing the president’s senior longtime aide because of reported criminal activity in his past?

    The answer: Doing all three of those things before noon on Tuesday. And that is exactly what the Trump White House did, in a truly manic display of hallmark dysfunction.

    Worse, the chronic disorder comes amid reports that this could be only the beginning of widespread personnel changes. And that’s notable for a White House that has been defined by the huge number of people who have already left.

    'I'm hearing the POTUS is looking at this moment as a return to Trump being Trump...he wants to surround himself with people who understand his campaign mentality. A turning point was that weekend rally in Pennsylvania. He doesn't want constraints'


    Don Jr.’s new defense: Collusion ‘covered under the First Amendment’


  11. Antonovich Gordievsky was recently interviewed for a PBS documentary about Putin. His final statement concluding the interview was chilling "Russia today is more dangerous to the world than the USSR ever was."

  12. Gee. Glushkov wasn't even on the list.


    "A Russian exile who was close friends with the late oligarch Boris Berezovsky has been found dead in his London home, according to friends.

    Nikolai Glushkov, 68, was discovered by his family and friends late on Monday night. The cause of death is not yet clear. One of his friends, the newspaper editor Damian Kudryavtsev, posted the news on his Facebook page.

    Without confirming the man’s name, the Metropolitan police said the counter-terrorism command unit was leading the investigation into the death “as a precaution because of associations that the man is believed to have had”. "

    As for Skripal.

    House Republicans are doing all they can to help Trump with the Russia probe

    “This is one of the first times I’ve seen that as an institution, they’re hyperpartisan and willing to do damage.”

    The Republicans’ claims are just another step in a concerted effort to cast doubt on the intelligence community and Mueller’s investigation. By accepting that the Russians meddled but saying they didn’t prefer Trump, Republicans are trying to build a public case that there’s no need for the Mueller probe because there’s no actual evidence of collusion.

    Making that case means attacking US law enforcement and the US intelligence community. And the new report from Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee is meant to give Trump’s defenders a new cudgel.
