I saw him on TV somewhere in the States during the convention in 2016

He saw he had hit something, so he kept repeating it and the crowd was shouting it back at him. One could have wished for one of Kim Jong Un's missiles to pay its friends a visit at that particular moment. It was hard to watch. In another era, they would have been yelling "Duce, Duce" or "Sieg Heil, Sieg Heil!"

In the book, the Major later orders Nicholai tortured, disfigured, and tossed into solitary for three years until the CIA decides his skills are needed. After completing what the CIA asked of him, Nicholai disappears, and the major later meets a violent "accidental" demise, which it is obvious Nicholai has engineered.

There was a reason he was slow to react

Namely, he knew better than anyone the "allegations" were all bogus, and didn't think there was anything to respond to. It blindsided him completely that anyone took them seriously, and people who knew him and his family well never did.

I'm out with my wife and brother. I'll post in detail about him later on.
