Why do I get the idea that Trump would not want his Justice Department to investigate that murder either?

Vladimir Putin ordered novichok assassin Alexander Mishkin to murder the British spy who wrote the sensational Trump sex dossier, claims a former top Russian spy.
Mishkin, 39, used the alias Alexander Petrov for the failed hit on the double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury in March.
Accomplice Ruslan Boshirov was unmasked as GRU colonel Anatolly Chepiga and Mishkin’s true identity as a doctor in Russia’s GRU military intelligence emerged last week.
He now faces allegations of plotting to use the same nerve agent on former MI6 officer Christopher Steele during a visit to Britain 12 months earlier.
KGB defector Boris Karphichkov, 59, claims Mishkin was part of a GRU special ops group that slipped into the country in late February 2017.
According to information a GRU source gave him on a recent trip to Europe, they were here to kill Steele, 54, on the direct orders of Putin.
Karpichkov said: “I was told Steele was to be liquidated using the same stuff as the Skripals. The assassins initially conducted surveillance both on Steele’s house in Farnham, Surrey, and at his London office.
“The operation was aborted when they realized the house was guarded with a lot of CCTV. As they also quickly established he was not appearing at his office, they concluded it was too risky to carry out the operation.”
Well, there’s your holy shit moment for the day.
I mean on some level we had to know that Putin probably wanted Steele dead, but to find out that he has already launched at least one attempt is a little chilling.
And think about what must be the reason that Putin wants Steele dead.
I mean the former MI6 agent gathered intelligence in Russia for years and was essentially left alone, but now that he is responsible for causing Putin’s puppet difficulty in the job that Vlad got him he suddenly has to go.
That may not be evidence of collusion from the Amercian side, but it is definitely evidence of collusion from the Russian side.
All I can say is that I hope Mr. Steele has the best security that money can buy because he is a far better patriot for America than the guy we have currently living in our White House.
