Why are these men dead since this past  October and thea January 2017 release of a document called the Steele Dossier? (The Dossier is a 35 page (unverified)  report on Russian involvement in Trump.)

Oleg Erovinkin Ex-KGB Chief Thought Dead As Source Of Trump Blackmail Dossier ...

Donald Trump–Russia dossier


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
On January 11, 2017, the media reported on the existence of a private intelligence dossier containing unverified allegations of misconduct and ties between then President-elect Donald Trump and the Russian government. The dossier was written by a former British MI6 intelligence agent, Christopher Steele, who went into hiding after the release of the dossier. 
The media and the intelligence community have stressed that accusations in the dossier have not been verified. Most experts treated the dossier with skepticism and caution. Trump himself has denounced the report, calling it "fake news" and "phony." A Russian government spokesman dismissed the dossier, saying its allegations were false. Steele's former colleagues have later come out in defense of his character and saying "He’s not the sort of person who will simply pass on gossip." 
The document alleges that the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) has kompromat on Trump – damaging or embarrassing material which could be used to blackmail him, including allegations about Trump's sexual and financial activities in Russia. The dossier also states that the Russian government promoted Trump's candidacy to create divisions in Western alliances, and that during his presidential campaign there was exchange of information between Russian sources and people associated with Trump's campaign.  
The dossier was produced as part of opposition research during the 2016 United States presidential election. The research was initially funded by Republicans who did not want Trump to be the Republican Party nominee for president. After Trump won the primaries, a Democratic client took over the funding; and, following Trump's election, Steele continued working on the report pro bonoContents The 35-page dossier claims that Russia is in possession of damaging or embarrassing information about Trump which could be used for purposes of blackmail to get Trump to cooperate with the Russian government.[1] The material includes allegations about Trump's sexual and financial dealings in Russia.[2] The dossier further alleges that Trump has been cultivated and supported as a presidential candidate by Russia for over five years, with the overall aim of creating divisions between Western alliances; that Trump has extensive ties to Russia; and that there had been multiple contacts between Russian officials and people working for Trump during the campaign.[1][3]

And, a little something for the Republican Congress. 

While we do not knwo if the dossier is laden with authentic material, we do know that Republican leadership in the US Congress is not providing critical national leadership via leading a charge to investigate potential subversion of a US presidential election.
