British PM is accused of withholding report of Russian interference

in affairs, including elections. This comes prior to the elections in December. In my mind, this closely parallels the actions of our own Mr. T and his sycophants.



Widow of ex-KGB agent plans legal action on UK's Russia report

LONDON (Reuters) - The widow of a Russian dissident murdered in London plans to challenge a decision by Prime Minister Boris Johnson's government not to publish a report on alleged Russian meddling in Britain, a lawyer representing the widow said.

Marina Litvinenko, whose husband Alexander, a former KGB agent, was murdered with a radioactive isotope in 2006, sent Johnson a letter on Wednesday saying she planned to take legal action, lawyer Elena Tsirlina said.
The report by parliament's Intelligence and Security Committee (ISC) has been cleared by Britain's security services but it has not yet been approved for publication by Johnson's office, meaning it will not be released before the election since parliament has shut to allow for campaigning.
Hillary Clinton, who ran as the Democratic Party's candidate in 2016, said earlier this week the failure to publish the report was "inexplicable and shameful."

According to a British public inquiry in 2016, two Russians carried out Litvinenko's murder, one of them a former KGB bodyguard who became a Russian lawmaker, in an operation probably ordered by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

On this day, I thank our current

and former servants of the public good, Civil Service and Military.

I was born of a southern family. The men and women served in every war since the Revolution. They served no party, no political cause, they served duty, honor, family and this great country.

My father served in WW2, my brothers in Viet Nam.

That Cadet Bone Spurs commands the military is beyond my ability to comment on without obscenities and anger.
