We just need to figure out which Oligarchs and officials are on the outs with Putin.

"Speaking to conservative pundit Ben Shapiro on his podcast Wednesday..."


Pompeo is such a fatass coward, he needed his safe space with a moron.

But keep in mind, to the Trump Administration, it's not a bad thing. Sometimes you gotta send a message.

A bit late to the party...

I'm certain we will act with the same sort of force and swiftness that we did when we found out the Russians were putting a bounty on U.S. soldiers heads.

Pompeo is hedging. Just like Trump, Pompeo is gonna need Russia's help, probably in 2024.

Tomorrow there will be a tape of Trump bragging about how he helped Putin plan it or something.

This administration attacks the US's friends, whilst defending its enemies.

You know Bob, Putin has the right ideas on how to handle the opposition. They know to how do it quickly and quietly over there. He has most tremendous chemists on his staff. Looks just like a heart attack or a stroke, totally untraceable, even the CIA is jealous!- Donald Trump probably

For a next level Brainiac/Lex Luthor supervillain, it doesn't seem very smart of Putin and the Russian intelligence agencies to try to murder him with a poison that is so specifically and uniquely Russian.

"How do we kill this man, comrades?  Push him off a building?  Arrange a car crash?  Bear attack?"
"Why don't we openly poison him with Novichok so that it's 100% crystal clear that it was us.  And we'll do it in such a ham-handed way that he's sure to survive.  Like the Skripals."
"Brilliant, Sergei!"

But I'm sure that's nothing.

Pomeo knows the truth and is just equivocating to not displease the Dotard.
It has been determined at the German hospital to be the Novichok toxin which could only originate from Vlad.
Case closed

This is not a new revelation. Where have you been? That was protocol from the very start

I think Navalny is the next Russian president. Poot is gonna keep doing what he does until he can't, and then Russia will have to rebrand, like they did in the 90s.

Then it will be Navalny's turn to make Russian into a near parody of a lib-dem society.

Terrorism doesn't work as well when people don't know who the terrorists are.

Between 'The Atlantic,' and Woodward, Pompeo is seeing his opportunity to look good as the worthy successor.

Successor of what?  A charred husk of a political system with little flakes of shiatty gold leaf floating in the warm air.

You mean he didn't just pop down to the corner store on a whim to buy some novichock to snort?

They aren't trying to get away with anything, they're currently more or less untouchable. They wanted to send a message and I doubt they gave a shiat whether he died or not. Message sent. As more time passes, Putin seems more and more like a slightly smarter breed of mob boss with a background in a brutal intelligence service. Brainiac and Lex Luthor he ain't.
