In all the talk about Trump Jr’s soliciting Russian help, there is another story I have not seen discussed: Peter Smith, Republican operative close to Flynn and member of shell company “KLS research” set up by the Trump campaign to conduct opposition research without being subject to campaign reporting laws, openly claims to have tried (in September 2016) to obtain Clinton’s emails from a source he thought may have been representing the Russian government. The story is somewhat circumstantial and doesn’t come together as neatly as Trump Jr directly admitting to conspiracy, but it may be very pertinent.

Peter Smith committed suicide in May at 81, citing declining health.
