U.S. Catches Kremlin Insider Who May Have Secrets of 2016 Hack - BFD!

This is also being reported by Bloomberg, which has a paywall.

Sources close to the Kremlin and Russia's intelligence sources believe Klyushin has access to documents related to the 2016 hack of the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton allies, Bloomberg News reported.

According to the Bloomberg report, Klyushin was approached by U.S. and British spy agencies in the years before he left Russia by private jet for a ski trip with his family in Switzerland. People characterized the extradition as a 'serious intelligence blow' to the Kremlin.

If he has documents central to the election hack, Klyushin could try to leverage the information about the election hack in exchange for leniency in the financial crimes he is charged with carrying out.

3. This guy is the link

Between the Internet Research Service, Putin and Trump. He flipped. Better to do a little jail than get poisoned by Putin.

5. Yep. He's a deadman if he flips -- and knows it. They may

bag him for his financial crimes, but no one up the ladder for the hacking or election “meddling”.

4. I take it this is not "FAKE NEWS." BTW is the Daily Mail credible?

Putin fears Kremlin insider extradited from Switzerland to US may have DEFECTED: Russian tech tycoon is thought to know secrets of 2016 Democratic Party hack and election manipulation attempts

Wealthy Russian businessman Vladislav Klyushin was indicted in Boston in late December and accused of hacking and insider trading
He was extradited to the U.S. from Switzerland
He had left Russia for a ski trip with his family
Sources close to the Kremlin and Russia's intelligence sources believe Klyushin has access to documents related to the 2016 hack, Bloomberg reported
Member of his firm is among 12 accused of hacking Democratic groups in 2016 as part of Russian military intelligence effort
Putin awarded him Russian medal of honor in 2020


********

election manipulation attempts

Trump has all but admitted to Russia hacking the election in 2016. He has said something like,
"What do you think that Russia was hacked the election at the voting machines?"

Russia attacked all 50 states. McConnell, Ryan, Pence, McCarthy, and Jeff Sessions were all aware of these
Russian actions before, during, and after the election.

13. Clearly, not fake news, taken from Bloomberg as stated. Why the snark?

6. more interested about what he knows about the RNC hack and the use of that kompromat

What he knows about Sessions, Graham, and other Rethugs who changed their tune about tRump is much more interesting to me than the DNC hack.

We all know that the Russians hacked the DNC and Hillary and leaked them via Assange and Wikileaks. How they used the RNC hack is much more chilling.

11. The precise nature of GOP operatives' vulnerability to kompromat is the "$64,000.00" question.

The stuff of dry treatise as well as edge-of-your-seat spy thriller classics. And, incidentally, the fate of our democratic experiment.

I would be very pleased to know these characters, most major GOP players, have perpetual sleepless nights of angst and gut-wrenching dread. Not so concerned that some self-serving oligarch may become suicidally uncomfortable and seek safe harbor in the machinations of some, stone faced, US authority.

My debt to my creator does not extend to manifest sympathy for those unrepentant of either political stripe. In the end, we're all snot-filled bait bags dangling on eternity's hooks. Why be mean about it? The real question is how an obscure reference to a 1950's TV game show fits into the narrative. Could it be Marxism in play?

7. just as interesting..... remember that

It wasn't just the dems who were hacked. They were also targeting the gop and specific gop pol's.

That could end up being even more interesting if we get the docs.

9. What is the world coming to when you get snatched out of Switzerland???

Sucker. Although the local 60's music radion channel, Swiss Nazi Gold, may disagree.

12. Even though we pulled him from the slopes of Switzerland and sent him stateside

I think things are going to go downhill for this guy from now on.
