Moscow Rules': How The CIA Operated Under The Watchful Eye Of The KGB | WFUV

http://bit.ly/2Xy26tw As a young government employee in 1975, Marti Peterson was assigned to the U.S. Embassy in Moscow. She loved the social scene and it earned her a nickname. "I was known as 'Party Marti' because I was out socializing with the Marine guards, with younger secretaries, the single, social life," Peterson said. "We did drink our share of Carlsberg beer." Peterson was actually with the CIA — the first female officer sent to Moscow.

Steele worked for the Fusion GPS opposition research firm and was paid for the “salacious and unverified” dossier indirectly by the 2016 presidential campaign of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee (DNC), which she then controlled through a cut-out, the Perkins Coie law firm th…
