Since news of Donald Trump’s likely collusion with Russia broke, prominent Russians with ties to the scandal keep turning up dead under suspicious circumstances. Nikolai Andrushchenko became number 12 on Thursday.
On March 19, Andrushchenko, a well-known anti-Putin journalist, was beaten unconscious. On Thursday, he finally succumbed to his injuries and died, becoming the 12th prominent Russian to die since the dossier that exposed Trump’s collusion with Russia on hacking the 2016 election became public in January. It is not yet clear whether he had direct ties to the Trump scandal, but we know for a fact that many of the dozen Russians to wind up dead in recent months did.
That’s an awful lot of bodies piling up awfully fast, making for one hell of a string of coincidental deaths. Kind of makes you think that maybe all these natural and accidental deaths weren’t so natural or accidental after all, doesn’t it?
