In 1917, a band of communist revolutionaries stormed the Winter Palace of Tsar Nicholas II - a dramatic and explosive act marking that Vladimir Lenin’s communist revolution was now underway. But Lenin would not be satisfied with overthrowing the Tsar. His goal was a global revolt that would topple all Western capitalist regimes - starting with the British Empire. Russian Roulette tells the spectacular and harrowing story of the British spies in revolutionary Russia and their mission to stop Lenin’s red tide from washing across the free world. They were an eccentric cast of characters, led by Mansfield Cumming, a one-legged, monocle-wearing former sea captain, and included novelist W. Somerset Maugham, beloved children’s author Arthur Ransome, and the dashing, ice-cool Sidney Reilly, the legendary Ace of Spies and a model for Ian Fleming’s James Bond. Cumming’s network would pioneer the field of covert action and would one day become MI6. Living in disguise, constantly switching identities, they infiltrated Soviet commissariats, the Red Army, and Cheka (the feared secret police), and would come within a whisker of assassinating Lenin. In a sequence of bold exploits that stretched from Moscow to the central Asian city of Tashkent, this unlikely band of agents succeeded in foiling Lenin’s plot for global revolution. 1.

Here´s a sample of what you´ll hear: Summary of Russian Roulette On the January 6, 2017, intelligence agencies briefed Donald Trump about Russia´s role in getting him elected as a president. Further, then FBI Director James Comey let him know that the intelligence agencies also had material to indicate that Trump had joined forces with Moscow for this turn of events since Russian entities had blackmailed him with the help of the footage they had of him with prostitutes and other stuff. They also warned him that the media might disclose this information to the public. It enraged Trump. He thought the agencies were blackmailing him and was determined not to be blackmailed. The rage set the stage for his presidency and how it would unfold. Even though this issue and the investigations pertaining to it acquired the status of a significant scandal, Trump did not consider the issue to be real, and any investigations pertaining to it seemed to him like attempts to cause him harm. However, this scandal went way back. Trump had sought business deals in Russia and this even went on during the initial months of his presidential campaign. This left an impact on how Trump would interact with Putin.
