US Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s search for a Russian hand may be fruitlessly over, but the greater hunt for the Kremlin bogeyman is not. Mainstream media are finding new targets, the latest being an opposition MP in Germany. On Friday, the BBC dropped a fresh (-ish) bombshell: a German politician, it claims, could be “absolutely controlled” by Russia. Its sources are alleged emails, sent between Russian officials, provided in 2017 by an anti-Putin tycoon’s “investigative” organization. The MP in question is Markus Frohnmaier, from the right-wing opposition AfD party. He is not a surprising target, having spoken up against anti-Russian EU sanctions and taken trips to post-2014 Crimea and eastern Ukraine.
