NY Times Scoop

Dateline Washington-   The New York Times has learned from an anonymous source that Trump surrogate, Fousesquawk, who writes a blog sympathetic to the President and admittedly voted for him in 2016, traveled to Moscow in 1997 where he ostensibly participated in a DEA training seminar for Russian narcotics police. The “training” was conducted at a secret facility known as the Russian National Police Academy, located near the Domodevovo Airport outside Moscow. Many of the officers participating in the program were from the Russian Federal Security Service, the successor agency to the dreaded KGB.

What is curious about the trip is that Fousesquawk had retired from DEA in 1995. A spokesman for the agency informed the Times that Fousesquawk was hired as a “consultant” to go on the Moscow trip.

The Times anonymous source also reported that while in Moscow, Fousesquawk socialized with the Russian agents after class hours, eating meals  and consuming large amounts of vodka with them. On one occasion, the Russian hosts accompanied Fousesquawk and other DEA trainers to Red Square. Even though the cemetery behind the Lenin Mausoleum was closed to the public, a Russian agent was able to arrange for Fousesquawk and his entourage to tour the graves of famous Russian leaders such as Stalin, Andropov, Brezhnev, Chernenko, and others. In exchange for this special favor, the guard on post was given a DEA patch by one of the DEA agents.

The source also reported that upon the close of the training school, Fousesquawk and the other DEA agents were given certificates in Russian honoring them as having served the Russian military in the Russian-Afghanistan war. The certificates were reportedly given as a joke.

When reached by telephone for comment, Fousesquawk stated, “Yes. It’s all true,” and hung up.

Senator Chuck Shumer (D-NY) told the Times that he will seek to have Fousesquawk appear before Congress under oath. “It’s called connecting the dots,” Shumer said. “Here we have an admitted Trump supporter who voted for him and does his bidding in a right-wing blog. It can’t be a coincidence. It looks to me like confirmation that Trump’s team colluded with the Russians to steal the election from Hillary Clinton.”

Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA), when asked by the Times for her reaction, stated, “This is a bunch of scumbags. Stay woke.”
