That’s just one of the shocking secrets exposed in the new issue of The National ENQUIRER, as law enforcement sources reveal the bloody truth behind the most contentious election in American history.
“Seth Rich’s murder is the missing piece,” top GOP operative Jack Burkman told The ENQUIRER — with reporters unearthing troubling evidence of how the promising young man’s bizarre murder was part of a lethal web spun by Kremlin kingpin Vladimir Putin!
One former FBI special agent, Clint Watts, has said: “Follow the trail of dead Russians!”
The ENQUIRER’s investigation — spanning from the Beltway to New York and Moscow — has discovered Rich’s death is only part of a web of death spun by Putin to cover his hacking of the U.S. election!
The ENQUIRER has identified NINE Russian spies snuffed out to bury the chilling truth.
The ENQUIRER can now name those dead Russian spies and the mysterious ends they met:
❱❱ Ex-KGB General Oleg Erovinkin was shot twice in the head on Dec. 26 in the backseat of his car in Moscow. Erovinkin was a close aide to Igor Sechin, a Russian oil kingpin named in the “dirty dossier” ex-British Intelligence agent Christopher Steele built on Donald Trump.
❱❱ Russia’s ambassador to Turkey, Andrei Karlov, was assassinated by an off-duty police officer at an art gallery in Ankara on Dec. 19.
❱❱ Hours later, Russian TV network Ren TV reported a “high-ranking” Russian diplomat named Petr Polshikov, 56, was found shot in the head in his Moscow apartment.
❱❱ Russia’s ambassador to the United Nations, Vitaly Churkin, died in New York City at the age of 64. New York City cops cited a “heart attack.”
❱❱ Then, in late January, the Russian ambassador to India, Alexander Kadakin, died after “a brief illness” at 67.
❱❱ Putin advisor Mikhail Lesin was found dead on Nov. 5, 2015, in The Dupont Circle Hotel in Washington. He had no ID although the room was in his name. The ENQUIRER has learned he died of blunt force trauma to the head.
❱❱ On Jan. 9, Andrey Malanin, the Russian consul in Athens, was found dead in his apartment. Local police discovered no evidence of a break-in.
❱❱ On Nov. 8, Sergei Krivov, a 63-year-old consul duty commander at the Russian consulate in New York City, died of “blunt force trauma” to the head and was found on a consulate floor. One report stated Krivov would have been in charge of “prevention of sabotage” and suppression of “attempts of secret intrusion” into the consulate.
❱❱ On March 2, a Ukrainian-born American citizen with links to both a Trump advisor and Putin died mysteriously in his native country. Alex Oronov, 69, was said to have run an agricultural business, but details of his activities ended up on the desk of ousted National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. Flynn.
