1. Not just a spy, 3 of them

All heads of Russian intelligence. I am beginning to wonder, if this whole memo nonsense isn't just theatre to distract us from everything that relates to Russia

8. Has it been removed?

I found the headline, and a small paragraph, but the video is gone.

10. It's still there

The video window appears above the paragraph. It could be you have something installed that is blocking it?

6. Good question.

CIA directors regularly meet and hold talks with their Russian counterparts on a variety of issues. But veteran and retired U.S. intelligence officers say the presence of all three Russian officials in Washington at the same time, and at a time of intense scrutiny over Russia's alleged interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign, is highly unusual.

"I can't recall any time in the last 15 years" that all three Russian agency chiefs were in the U.S. capital at the same time, Steven Hall, a former CIA station chief in Moscow, tells RFE/RL. "It's highly unusual."

During his tenure, Hall says, it was always a big deal, politically and logistically, whenever a senior Russian intelligence officer got in to see a U.S. counterpart, giving Moscow a way to assert they were on equal footing with the United States.

The Russians "consider it a big political win if they can do it. There is certainly a political perspective," Hall says. "So it's particularly strange under these circumstances that we would want to give them something like that."

7. Which idiot? One of Trump's idiots of course: The Secretary of State, Tillerson.

Remember the good ol days when Secretaries of State were usually highly respected diplomats like Clinton, Kerry, Albright?

11. And they did it in secret.

We would not have known about it at all if not for TASS, the Russian news agency. How could that be possible?
