In January of 2017, in the early days of the public’s knowledge of the salacious Steele dossier, ABC news identified Sergei Millian as the key source for the document.
The dossier, which was compiled by ex-British spy Christopher Steele who was paid by Fusion GPS to put together something they could use against then-candidate Trump during the 2016 election.
Fusion GPS, of course, was hired by the Clinton campaign.
Millian, who was interviewed by ABC News in January of 2017, has since been identified as the “Source D” and “Source E” in the dossier.
Investigative journalist Sara Carter, who has been working tirelessly to expose the underpinnings of the Spygate scandal, wrote about Sergei Millian more in March of 2019.
Millian mysteriously disappeared after the election.
According to former Trump policy advisor George Papadopoulos, Millian, a Belarus-born businessman, became an unwitting source of Steele. Papadopoulos believes Millian was working with the FBI and therefore was trying to build a relationship with him, as reported in The Washington Post.
“Just re-looking at my notes from my convo with Chris Steele, I see that Chris and Kukes has some connection to Sergei Millian, an emigre who is identified by FT as head of the Russian American Chamber of Commerce,” Kavalec told Ohr in the Nov. 21, 2016 email.
“According to what Chris said to me in early October, Millian has apparently disappeared,” i.e., left the U.S. and hasn’t been seen recently. I don’t know anything about Millian, but he is referenced in the FT story: ig.ft.com/sites/trumps-Russian-connections/
Ohr noted that the two had met regarding Steele’s information, which was later passed to the FBI.
“Kathy – thank you for taking the time to meet with us,” said Ohr in an email exchange on that day. “I really hope we can get something going here.”
Ohr was responding to an email Kavalec sent earlier in the day. Kukes “had left Russia because he said he was concerned he might be investigated- as I recall he said had gotten a summons to court on some issue.”
Over the weekend, conservative author and journalist Paul Sperry posted this photo to Twitter.
It’s the belated John McCain with none other than Sergei Millian.
