"The Russians, Eduard Shishmakov and Vladimir Popov, were handed the heaviest jail terms - 12 and 15 years. They are allegedly members of Russia's GRU military intelligence service."

@jeffsessions @DougJones "A little more than a year later, on the night of September 25, 1987, a small plane crash-landed at Demopolis Airport in Alabama, exploding into a ball of fire.Two hundred thirteen red and green packages containing cocaine were found all over the road."

@jeffsessions @DougJones "Chambless identified persons whom he maintained were involved in the Demopolis incident. He explained how a large hunting camp had been used in Sumpter County as the home base for an on-going operation where a number of loads of cocaine had been imported into Alabama."

I always wondered why Mick Mulvaney worked so hard to get Orban into the Oval Office meeting with Trump.
I also wondered why Lufthansa has taken taken popshots at Ukraine on Russia's behalf.
