Washington (CNN) "The brazen daytime slaying of a Russian politician outside a Ukrainian hotel this week brings to eight the number of high-profile Russians who have died over the past five months since the US presidential election on November 8.

Among the recent deaths were five Russian diplomats. Some of the deaths appeared natural and governments have ruled out foul play.
In some cases, though, questions remain. That's either because the facts have changed over time, details are hard to come by, or the deaths are still under investigation.
Self-proclaimed online sleuths and conspiracy theorists have filled the information void with speculation that the deaths were somehow related to Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election. No evidence has surfaced to make such a connection.
Here's a rundown of the eight deaths—and one near fatality:..."

Putin is a murderous thug who butchered people in Syria, and kills when consolidating power. History tells us how to deal with Putin's kind.

NOTHING like Obama. The Orange Oompa Loompa has no morals and no conscience. Have you noticed he doesn't work weekends and costs the taxpayers an average of $3 million each time he visits Mar-a-Lago? Have you noticed the cost of keeping his wife in New York? Or how he insulted Angela Merkel...giving her an invoice for $300 billion he claims she owes NATO? He's not only unethical; he's mentally ill.

I'm surprised there aren't accidents happening around Trump.

People are real concerned about a Reichstag fire......it is openly being discussed by left and right. We are in dangerous times. Romney's reference to Russia being a threat is about third on the list, but certainly to his credit he had Putin figured out much better than President Obama did at that time. President Obama, however, with his sanctions out toughed Putin, which meant that he would react. We need to put this in perspective. Italy and Brazil now have larger GDP than Russia, and clearly those former territories in the Soviet Union are making more economic ties with the West which coupled with a crashing Ruble means that Russia economically is becoming irrelevant. Their performance in Syria was comical. No precision. No real technological advances.....just good old fashion carpet bombing of civilians. President Obama did not do that, but not extracting us completely from the two countries we wrongfully invaded meant that he was complicit in the murder of innocent civilians. He will have to carry that burden for the balance of his life. We are not saints when our MIC and the Russian MIC contribute so much to the GDP.

Terrorism and espionage expert Clint Watts told the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday that if they want to understand Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election, then they need to “follow the trail of dead Russians.”

Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) asked Watts at the hearing, “How can the committee track this fuzzy line between the Russian oligarchs, Russian organized crime and the Russian government?”

Watts began by pointing out that he is not an expert on Russia, but a counterterrorism specialist, then explained that the Russian attack on the U.S. election had two components, the virtual or internet component and an actual physical real-world component.

The virtual assault, Watts said, came from a “disproportionate number of fake news outlets” in Eastern Europe, “conspiratorial web sites that are run from there that are English-speaking editors that are pro-Russian. Trained in Russia sometimes. How are they funded? That would be one component.”

“My hypothesis, working in the intelligence field,” he continued, “is that there is some sort of Russian intel asset that is funding them in one way or another through some sort of scheme.”

“The other part that I think we should be looking at is: Follow the trail of dead Russians,” Watts said. “There’s been more dead Russians in the past three months that are tied to this investigation who have assets in banks all over the world. They are dropping dead, even in western countries. We have seen arrests in I believe it’s Spain and different computer security companies that are based in Russia, which provide services to the United States. These are all huge openings to understand how they are funded by the Russian government. I don’t have the capability to do that from where I sit, but I think that’s a huge angle.”

Watts is a senior fellow at the Foreign Policy Research Institute and a specialist in the Islamic State (ISIS) and cyber terrorism.
