FBI questions Fedor

So the FBI went to Fedor Emelianenko's hotel room to question him prior to his recent Bellator fight in Chicago a few days ago.

Apparently, since Fedor fought under the Affliction banner in 2008 - which was owned by POTUS at the time, and Cohen was the COO. And since (gasp!) Fedor is Russian and is on friendly terms with Putin, there must be some connection there - right? No one is revealing what that line of questions was related to, but I still find this ridiculous.

This is being reported by multiple sources. But the Newsweek version is indicative of most modern "reporting". While most of the MMA blog/sites are just reporting the facts, Newsweek is using phrases like:
- "...previously linked to President Donald Trump and personal attorney Michael Cohen..."
- " ...Emelianenko has a longstanding history with both Trump and Putin. He was first connected to Trump..."
(note: emphasis added by me)

Then they add in a photo of Fedor and Putin shaking hands, and mention how others besides Fedor are being questioned, like form National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.

I don't know if I am more pissed off that our tax $$ are being wasted by having FBI agents interview folks like Fedor, or this obvious attempt at fabrication of a story by Newsweek. FFS.

Clearly, the interview did not faze Fedor as he scored a TKO in 0:48 in the first round.

(Admins/mods - I almost put this in the "all political investigations thread")

Hey, I remember Newsweek.

Yep, been used to hold down end tables in dental offices all across America for decades. Can't think of any other use for it.

As sad as it is, and as much of a waste of tax funded money as it is, I can see "their logic" in running it down.

I don't agree or support it, but I do see their thinking they are running their "leads" down...as silly as they are.

Yeah - not the most impactful of sources. I get it.

I don't see any logic. They aren't running leads down. They are deliberating trying to create a public perception of a current nexus between POTUS, Putin, Fedor, and an ongoing criminal investigation. There is nothing to indicate that the FBI's questioning of Fedor has anything to do with POTUS or Putin.

I used to read every issue of Newsweek, I subscribed to it and a couple others while I was in the Marines. I think I preferred US News and World Report though. Newsweek completely jumped the shark and lost all credibility almost fifteen years ago. Korans flushed down toilets, etc. I actually flipped through an issue yesterday because they had an excerpt from Rise and Kill First. The whole magazine is something like 32 pages and the bulk of it was that excerpt disguised as an article.

Hopefully Newsweek managed to write something about Fedor's brother being associated with the Russian mob, and doing time in prison, just to add to the outrage drama...

I wish they'd had those instructional booklets when I came in, might have made me a fan of comic books.

Torque wrenches weren't the only Connie was capable of calibrating, I'm sure.
