Western pols are fighting, and dying, on Russiagate Hill.
Oh what a tangled web we weave, when at first we practice to deceive ...
Lavrov is on a roll here. Three weeks ago he, correctly, called US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley a liar, albeit, not to her face.
Watch Boris Johnson bumble through this embarrassing exchange with Lavrov in Moscow yesterday.
Johnson is in the unenviable position of having to maintain what to most intelligent people is obviously a ridiculous lie, that he himself acknowledged to be nonsense one month ago, in exchange for keeping his job.
Here's the money quote from Lavrov:
“I would still like to at least get some facts supporting our unsuccessful meddling.
Without facts, it’s very hard to have a serious discussion.
I think you’ve just made all of this up. Unfortunately, you are a sort of hostage to this subject.
It’s very hard to get down from the fence you’ve climbed.”
