  1. I’m sorry but this quote makes me livid, how on earth can the UK trust a government that didn’t release this report before parliament dissolved:

    One witness described the development as “potentially the most significant threat to the UK’s institutions and its ways of life,”

  2. Infiltration implies that nobody knew it was happening. Like in the US, Conservatives invited them in.

  3. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://amp.cnn.com/cnn/2019/11/08/uk/uk-russia-inquiry-intelligence-security-committee-gbr-intl/index.html) reduced by 91%. (I’m a bot)

    > One witness described the development as "Potentially the most significant threat to the UK's institutions and its ways of life," according to testimony seen by CNN. The committee's unpublished final report into Russian meddling in UK politics, titled simply "Russia," is at the center of a storm in the UK, where parliament was dissolved on Wednesday ahead of a general election in December.

    > One witness said "Political considerations seemed to outweigh national security interests," according to testimony reviewed by CNN. Witnesses whose testimony CNN is familiar with told the committee that Russian agents were targeting research roles in the House of Commons, acquiring British citizenship to funnel cash to political parties and employing public relations firms to cleanse reputations.

    > Journalist and Russia expert Edward Lucas, who was among the first to contribute to the ISC inquiry in July 2018, told CNN his testimony to the committee centered on the role of lobbyists who were advocating in the UK on behalf of Russian clients with dubious sources of wealth.

  4. Beep boop, I’m a bot. It looks like OP posted a Google AMP link.

  5. The road from legitimate suspicion to rampant paranoia is very much shorter than we think.

  6. *”Among those invited to give evidence were Christopher Steele, the ex-British spy behind the Trump-Russia dossier and Bill Browder …”*

    lol Browder again …

    **Bill Browder lies about Magnitsky**
