Okay, so just a few days ago, when GATES hired a top white collar criminal lawyer, one of commentators thought it odd that GATES had a "spokesman". Okay, maybe he's a PR guy in the current vernacular but still kind of odd.

Now we find out he is dead. Why was a spokesman of an INDICTED partner of Paul Manafort, Trump's operative, both whose passports were pulled and not allowed to leave the US, in KABUL? Are Manafort and Gates still doing deals for worldwide thugs and despots? Or does this FLORIDA PR guy just happen to represent others business in Kabul?

Seems a little coincidental.

A spokesman for Rick Gates, the former Trump campaign official indicted in the Russia investigation, was killed over the weekend in Afghanistan during the bombing and siege of a hotel that catered to foreigners.

Glenn Selig, 49, was in Kabul on business related to his Florida public relations firm when he became one of at least 22 people killed during a 14-hour attack that began Saturday night and stretched into Sunday, a colleague said...

What questions does it raise?

He went to an area in the world that's dangerous, for his job, and he died.

He was caught up in an attack where many people died....you think this was some plan to get rid of him?

You guys are out there.

"A spokesman for Selig's company declined to name Selig's client for the Afghanistan work but a Tampa newspaper reported he was "in Kabul to explore a potential project on counter-extremism."

"Selig also played a role in promoting a legal defense fund for Gates in December."

Is the above a normal function of a PR guy?
