Russian Professor Claims She Was ‘Used’ to Smear High Level Trump Appointee

Could this blow the lid off of “SpyGate” for good?

Now that the Mueller report has been submitted to the Department of Justice, a number of new questions have been raised, specifically about the origins of the entire investigation.

For many, there is a stench about the Special Counsel’s appointment, particularly when it comes to the Obama administration’s clandestine involvement with the Trump campaign back in 2016.

Known colloquially as “SpyGate”, there is a prevailing theory in Washington DC that Barack Obama used his power as President to “set up” the Trump campaign, specifically in order to sow seeds of doubt regarding their connections to Russia.  This was made all the more curious by Hillary Clinton’s insistence in mentioning Russia during a number of 2016’s presidential debates, seemingly out of nowhere.

A Russian-born academic who was at the center of attention in 2017 for past contact with former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn told Fox News in an exclusive interview that she is not a spy for Moscow – and, to the contrary, believes she was “used” to smear Flynn.

“I think there’s a high chance that it was coordinated, and I believe it needs to be properly investigated,” Svetlana Lokhova told Fox News.

Lokhova entered the political firestorm in early 2017, as Flynn was forced out of the Trump administration over lying about his contact with Ambassador Sergei Kislyak. At the time, Lokhova was contacted by three American media outlets over a four-day period – and was promptly hit with claims in the press and on social media that she was a Russian operative for Moscow.

Lokhova is adamant about the claim.

“I’m not a Russian spy and I have never worked for the Russian government,” the 38-year old historian and academic said, in an interview first broadcast on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” “I believe that General Flynn was targeted and I was used to do it.”

This is just the latest piece of the “SpyGate” puzzle, and something that the President will certainly be hoping to look into in the coming weeks.
