The main source of the Trump dossier, a former KGB officer, was found dead the day after Christmas. The Daily Mail reports:
The Kremlin may have covered up the murder of a former KGB chief accused of helping ex-MI6 spy Christopher Steele to pull together the notorious dossier on Donald Trump.
Oleg Erovinkin served as a general in the KGB and was found dead on Boxing Day in the back of his car in Moscow.
It has been claimed he died of a heart attack, but an expert on Russian security threats believes he was murdered for his role in the explosive dossier.
The suspected murder victim was close to former deputy prime minister Igor Sechin, who is named throughout the leaked memo, according to the Telegraph.
This could be a coincidence, but it is likely that it was an assassination. Could it be Trump’s hit squad took him out? Or Putin, who thought the man untrustworthy if he was providing information to a British spy? It could also be a way to cover up the true origin of the dossier, which was to provide opposition research to Clinton during the election. A true mystery.
