DISINFO: Skripal worked on Trump dossier


Sergei Skripal worked on the Trump dossier.


No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about US elections and ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal's poisoning. According to the Daily Mail and The Telegraph, the original information linking Skripal to the Trump dossier was posted on a LinkedIn page, which is no longer available and "proved to be false".
