Report: Russia, Putin Back Left-Wing California Secession Movement

Left-wing Californians who want California to secede from the United States in the wake of the 2016 elections might be surprised to know their movement is supported by Russia and the administration of President Vladimir Putin.

According to a report by Bloomberg, #CalExit founder Louis Marinelli — a disgruntled Trump voter and former same-sex marriage opponent who switched sides — is now looking to team up with Putin and leftist anti-American radicals in Russia.

An expatriate living in Russia, Marinelli is running “Yes California,” the organization that leads the effort to put secession on the California ballot. He is married to a Russian woman who is struggling to immigrate to the U.S., and so he currently lives in Yekaterinburg, Russia’s fourth-largest city, on the Siberian side of the Ural Mountains — about as far as you can get from L.A.

He is hard at work preparing for a “California Embassy” in Moscow, Bloomberg reports, “with the help of a vehemently anti-American group supported by the Kremlin” called the Anti-Globalist Movement of Russia.

After Hillary Clinton’s repeated attempts to link rival Donald Trump to Putin and Russia (despite her own pro-Russia policy as Secretary of State), it may shock many of the leftist supporters of California’s secession to learn about their foreign patron. full story
