The internet shifted into overdrive Friday morning following the bombshell report that a former Soviet agent with ongoing ties to the Kremlin attended the meeting between top Trump campaign officials and a Russian lawyer promising dirt on Hillary Clinton.
NBC described the man who accompanied Kremlin-linked Natalia Veselnitskya at the June 9 meeting with Dona;d Trump Jr. as a “former Soviet counter intel officer who is suspected of having ongoing ties to Russian intel.”
The NBC report, which further intensifies the firestorm engulfing the Trump administration, became the focus of an intense debate online.
Take a look at some of the comments on Twitter:

We are currently living in either the best or the worst spy political thriller beach read ever. I am not sure which yet.

So even the lying lawyer couldn't remember that 3rd person was in the interview. Imagine that? How did their stories line up so well? 🤔
