"Asked for comment, Balber called Walden’s letter “a publicity stunt” and said, “As far as I know, there is absolutely no Russian government role in the filing of the lawsuit. This appears to be complete fiction.” "
There is no grammatical need for the qualifiers "as far as I know" and "This appears" in these statements unless either the lawyer suspects or does know that Putin or his friends are behind this lawsuit.
I ate a Pop-Tart.
All I have to say is Rodchenkov values his life he better keep his windows locked, avoid drinking tea and for God's sake do NOT, walk across the street from the Kremlin.
The doping scandal by the Russians was outright immense in scale and was proven to also include the the Sochi Olympic where multiple buildings were modified to hide transactions (involving hundreds of workers), athletes had handlers (an organization involving hundreds of spy types) and samples were routinely stolen, lost and replaced so often the Olympic committee needed more testing. Notice the difference in medal count where in Sochi they got twice as many medals and 6 times as many gold medals.
Burt Reynolds is looking pretty good these days!
I watched Icarus over the last 2 nights. It's hard to escape the conclusion that the Russian government is a criminal enterprise. Not only does it do nasty stuff, it then denies having done it when the evidence is presented, and it apparently has no intention of acting in any other way. And where are the Russian athletes who participated in this state-sponsored scam? Apparently, they believe that anything is permitted so long as they win.
Balber once represented Donald Trump in a $5 million lawsuit, surprise a lawyer that represented trump is also a lawyer for the russian mob.
I came here to suggest boycotting the Nets (not hard to do) but then I read there's another Trump Russian connection. Oh boy.
Hillary forced me to vote for Trump, not "Russian collusion."
Since when it became a legal requirement to show who is behind a lawsuit?
Without illegal doping substances Russian athletes are performing at the level of Botswana and Cameroon and this was apparent during this winter Olympics. I hope our athletes take notice so next time they compete against Russians they will have the confidence of easy victory.
LOL...I thought Russia got banned from the Olympics. Shows how ineffective and neutered the Olympic committee is because I saw a lot of Ruskies competing.
