Not many Americans know who this fellow is. But Putin does, for good reason. We're lucky to have people such as Kyle Parker in the U.S. government. It's reassuring, too. ... tins-craw/

When Robert Mueller indicted twelve GRU agents, Vladimir Putin proposed a deal to President Trump. Trump was enthusiastic about it, calling it “an incredible offer,” twice. His press secretary, Sarah Sanders, said that Putin’s proposal was “made in sincerity.” But the president has turned it down, apparently.

Which is fortunate.

Putin wanted to allow the U.S. to question the GRU agents if the U.S. allowed the Kremlin to question certain others — including Michael McFaul, the Russia scholar who was the U.S. ambassador to Moscow. And Bill Browder, who is not a U.S. citizen in any case. (He is a U.K. citizen.) Browder is the financier who campaigns for Magnitsky acts, named after his lawyer, Sergei Magnitsky, who was tortured to death by Russian authorities in 2009. These acts place sanctions on Russian human-right abusers.

Another person on the list — Putin’s list, this roll of honor? Kyle Parker. Who? Exactly. Yet this man is deep under Putin’s skin, as well he might be. I had thought Browder more responsible than anyone else for the passage of the U.S. Magnitsky Act. Yet Browder says that Kyle Parker is.

"Corporate Democrat" phrase created at the same place "Angry Mob" was...People keep falling for rightwing talking points. How sad.
