American action star Steven Seagal, who holds citizenship in the U.S. and Russia, and spends a lot of time in the country, reacted to the Trump-Russia collusion narrative, his friendship with President Putin and a rumor that he is considering a run for governor of Siberia.
Seagal said that the Siberian rumor was the product of “fake news” reporting on a joke he made while visiting Vladivostok.
He said that a man recognized him, and shouted that Siberia did not have a governor and asked if the actor would take the role. Seagal said he responded in jest but that the media took it seriously.
“One of the millions of the fake news sort of stories,” Seagal, whom Putin has designated a “special envoy” to the United States, said.

Regarding the collusion narrative, Seagal said that it is a situation where “there is a tremendous amount of propaganda against Russia.” – READ MORE
A Democratic senator outsourced parts of the investigation into possible Trump-Russia collusion to a former Senate staffer with links to George Soros and Fusion GPS, according to a New Yorker report.
The New Yorker reports the unidentified senator contacted Daniel Jones, a former Senate Intelligence Committee staffer, around March 2017 to review data regarding a possible link between the computer servers of the Trump Organization and a Russian bank called Alfa Bank.
Jones, who worked under California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein when she chaired the intelligence panel, had just formed a non-profit group called the Democracy Integrity Project. The organization worked closely with Fusion GPS and former British spy Christopher Steele, the tag-team duo that produced the Democrat-funded dossier accusing the Trump campaign of colluding with the Kremlin.
Jones’s operation was also funded by a small group of billionaires, including left-wing philanthropist George Soros. Jones told the FBI in March 2017 that between 7 and 10 billionaires had put up $50 million to continue an investigation into Russian meddling in elections.
Jones also told the FBI that he had secured the services of Steele and Fusion GPS “to continue exposing Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. Presidential election.” – READ MORE
