All of the Russians tied to President Donald Trump, according to the dossier that American intelligence agencies corroborated and a former British MI6 agent compiled, are dropping dead.
Yet another Russian who was directly identified in the Donald Trump/Russia dossier have died under suspicious circumstances. Alex Oronov, the first of the list to be a citizen of the United States and a resident of Trump Hollywood, died two days ago. No details yet are available surrounding how he died, but it is reported that he was 69 years old and in good health.
Oronov was a Russian/Ukrainian/American who allegedly arranged the meeting between the Trump and Putin administrations where Putin was ensured no action would be taken against Russia over Crimea. It has been suggested that these details are what arrived on National Security Advisor, Michael Flynn’s shortly before he resigned.
This meeting is said to have taken place with a former Russian business partner of Trump’s, a Felix Sater. Michael Cohen, Trump’s attorney, and Andreii Artemenko, a pro-Russia Ukrainian, were also present according to some reports.
All of those inadequately substantiated allegations aside, the death of this individual cannot be ignored as it seems to provide more weight to the above story.
Artemenko announced via Facebook that Oronov had died.
Oronov joins Erovinkin, Krivov, Karlov, Melanin, Chandelon, Polshikov and Churkin, who have all died since the dossier scandal became public just a few short months ago.
Sergei Krivov died in New York on election day at the Russian Consulate with his skull bashed in. Oleg Erovinkin was a former KGB general who contributed to the former MI6 agent’s dossier on Trump and Putin’s ties, and was found dead in the back of a car. Sergei Mikhailov was arrested for assisting the CIA, was seen dragged out of a meeting with a bag on his head in Moscow, and was then found deceased; Mikhailov was also a Russian intelligence agent.
This all sounds like it’s too crazy to be true, right? Unfortunately, it isn’t fake at all. These deaths are real, the circumstances are real, the only things that aren’t substantiated are the connections identified prior as allegations. But it certainly seems awfully coincidental that following the news breaking of this alleged meeting and these deals spelling ties, conspiracy and blackmail, that nearly every person involved has dropped dead.
2017 America is quickly turning back time to the 1920s mobster days because this feels like some horrible coming-to-life The Sopranos stuff right now.
The only question remaining really is: who is likely to be next, and what can the American intelligence agencies and international allies do to expedite the process of verifying the dossier, determining any Russian ties in order to respond accordingly?
In the meantime, despite the severity of the potential implications, Donald Trump sits in the prestigious Oval Office, with access to untold knowledge and resources.
UPDATE: It has since been reported that Alex Oronov’s death was as a result of natural causes. The son-in-law of Oronov, Bryan Cohen countered pre-existing claims that Oronov was in good health, articulating that he had been in the hospital relying on a forced air flow machine for three months prior to his death. He further argued that Oronov had been too ill to attend or facilitate the so-called “peace meeting” mentioned above between Trump and Putin aides.
That said, the Kyiv Post, a Ukrainian news outlet, identified that this son-in-law of Oronov, Bryan Cohen is the brother of Donald Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen. Given this information, it is difficult to discern whether or not Cohen’s statement on Oronov’s death is wholly reliable.
