    “Under a $2.8 million no-bid contract awarded by the Office of Acquisitions in Washington, security guards at the American Embassy in Moscow and at consulates in St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg and Vladivostok will be provided by Elite Security Holdings, a company closely linked to the former top K.G.B. figure, Viktor G. Budanov, a retired general who rose through the ranks to become head of Soviet counterintelligence.” https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/14/world/europe/embassy-moscow-kgb.html

    Trump’s “Coffee Boy” Keeps Sabotaging His Russia Story : George Papadopoulos told foreign contacts he was a significant player on the campaign—and claims Trump gave him a “blank check” for a White House job. (Vanity Fair 11/17/17) https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2017/11/george-papadopoulos-trump-campaign-russia
    “The chaos of the Trump-campaign circus attracted a variety of eccentrics, grifters, hustlers, résumé-inflators and Russophiles from which the White House is now doing its best to disassociate from: former adviser Carter Page, the self-described Russian-energy expert who has been talking to the F.B.I.; former campaign manager Paul Manafort, who has been indicted on 12 counts of financial crimes related to his lobbying operations in eastern Europe; Mike Flynn, who is being investigated by Robert Mueller for undisclosed work on behalf of the Turkish government that allegedly included a plot to kidnap a Muslim cleric living in rural Pennsylvania. And, of course, there is George Papadopoulos, the former Trump campaign adviser who pleaded guilty this summer to lying to federal agents about his contacts with Russians who appear, by any reasonable standard, to have been spies.
    Papadopoulos, according to Donald Trump, was a low-level volunteer—a “coffee boy,” according to another former campaign official. But Papadopoulos saw his role as much more significant—and evidence of his travels and communications on behalf of the campaign suggests that it was.”
