    Poisoned double agent has links to company behind the Steele dossier

    A Russian double agent believed to have been poisoned by the Kremlin had close links to the company which compiled the infamous Steele dossier.

    Sergei Skripal was once a colonel in Russia's GRU military intelligence service, but had been secretly working for the UK since the mid-1990s. He was arrested by the Russians in 2004, but handed over to the UK in 2010 as part of a spy swap.

    Mr Skripal was found slumped on a bench in Salisbury, where he lived, last weekend. He - and his daughter - had been poisoned with some kind of nerve agent.

    Russia has denied responsibility, but it's now reported Mr Skripal was close to a security consultant who worked for Christopher Steele's company Orbis Business Intelligence.

    Military deployed after poisoning

    About 180 military personnel have been deployed to Salisbury to help in the investigation into the attempted murder of an ex-Russian spy and his daughter.

    The military personnel - drawn mostly from the Army, but also from the Royal Marines and RAF - are experts in chemical warfare and decontamination.

    Letting off a chemical weapon like this is terrorism, could be considered an act of war.

    Hes a double agent and worked for the GRU. Perfectly acceptable to call him a former spy for both nations.

    Russian spy: Highly likely Moscow behind attack, says Theresa May

    The PM said the government concluded it was "highly likely" Russia was responsible for the Salisbury attack.

    The Foreign Office summoned Russia's ambassador to provide an explanation.

    Mrs May said if there is no "credible response" by the end of Tuesday, the UK would conclude there has been an "unlawful use of force" by Moscow.

    The chemical used in the attack, the PM said, has been identified as being part of a group of nerve agents known as Novichok.

    Mrs May said: "Either this was a direct action by the Russian state against our country, or the Russian government lost control of its potentially catastrophically damaging nerve agent and allowed it to get into the hands of others."

    She said Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson had told the ambassador Moscow must provide "full and complete disclosure" of the Novichok programme to the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

    Mrs May said the UK must stand ready to take much more extensive measures, and these would be set out in the Commons on Wednesday should there be no adequate explanation from Russia.

    I wasn't familiar with these nerve agents, and had to look them up: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Novichok_agent

    The description matches the concept of something that could only be produced by a state sponsored program, and the circumstantial evidence of Russian involvement seems very strong.

    This stuff seems to be very traceable. Not something that you cook up in the kitchen.

    Is that more dangerous and untraceable than Enterprise Polonium (he-he)?

    If it was Russia then they have acted like a terrorist state, serious reprisals should be on the cards.

    In your opinion, from where I'm sitting it's highly unlikely the Russians did this, they had ample opportunity to kill him, like when he was in their prison for a few years

    Why don't you head outside and shout "it was Russia" at the top of your lungs a few times, see if it does anything for you

    The house intel committee found nothing on the BS election meddling front and the UK will find nothing concrete with this murder:
    Conaway made the announcement during an interview with Fox News. Per Fox, the committee will interview no more witnesses and Republicans are in the process of preparing a final report. A draft of that roughly 150-page report will be delivered to committee Democrats for review on Tuesday.

    "We have found no evidence of collusion, coordination, or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians," Conway said.

    Furthermore, after an investigation that lasted more than a year, the committee came to the conclusion that the intelligence community’s assessment that Russian President Vladimir Putin had a "supposed preference" for then-candidate Trump isn't accurate.

    “The report’s completion will signify the closure of one chapter in the Committee’s robust oversight of the threat posed by Moscow—which began well before the investigation and will continue thereafter,” Conaway said.
    What all these retards completely fail to appreciate is: if it really was Russia, they wouldn't be caught out ...
