So there's currently a story about extreme right-wing Republican Madison Cawthorn (that's the same guy who thinks women are "earthern vessels") getting a divorce from his wife after less than a year of marriage.
Conspiracy theorists have rediscovered a video in which he tells the story of how he
was introduced to the woman that would become his wife, which involves a vacation in Sweden and Norway, a ferry trip to Russia that makes little sense geographically, a trip to a casino in Saint Petersburg where gambling is illegal, him meeting an American Army captain at said casino, said captain staying in touch with him and later inviting him to a Crossfit competition in Miami that turns out to be a sham and was only an excuse to introduce him to the woman who would become his fiancee.
A lot of people are pointing out that this sounds like a classic honey trap story, and his soon-to-be ex-wife might actually be a Russian spy, with him as the target. And he denies all of that.
Conspiracy theories about Russia and spies fly after clip resurfaces of Madison Cawthorn sharing how he met his now ew-wife.
Cawthorn announced on December 22 that he and his wife will divorce after less than nine months of marriage.
