FBI Agents reportedly swarmed the home of Russian Oligarch Oleg Deripaska this morning in Washington DC. There’s no mention in today’s reporting of the FBI’s efforts to have Deripaska work for them in 2016.
NBC News reports:
FBI agents on Tuesday swarmed the home of Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska in Washington, D.C., an agency spokesperson confirmed to NBC News.
The reason for their presence wasn’t immediately clear. The spokesperson said the agency is conducting “law enforcement activity at the home,” but wouldn’t elaborate.
Deripaska is a billionaire oil tycoon with close ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin. He was among two dozen Russian oligarchs and officials who were sanctioned by the Treasury Department in April 2018.
We’ve reported on Deripaska in the past. Deripaska was reportedly visited by FBI Agents in the summer of 2016 pitching the Trump-Russia collusion garbage theory. It looked like they were trying to get Deripaska to work with them in setting up the future President Donald Trump.
We also reported on Deripaska when portions of the Steele dossier were released to the public. Steele claimed that his work for Deripaska was not part of his work related to his reporting of Carter Page. Steele also claimed Deripaska had no interaction with his main source for his garbage Steele dossier which the corrupt FBI used to spy on President Trump.
However, it was later reported that Steele’s main source in the Carter Page set up was pictured with Deripaska in June 2016 and with John McCain below.
A Russian hooker who hung out with Deripaska claimed she had Trump-Russia collusion information in an effort to get out of jail. It worked because the Mueller gang sprung her from jail as soon as they found out.
Who knows what the FBI was looking for today in DC. Maybe they planted something they will come back later to retrieve. This is today’s FBI.
