You know when you have homework with fixed tasks and questions to deliver the next day. That the teacher expects answer in the light of the field and examine the context of the matter. If it is math, that you find the right method to analyze the numbers and if its social science, you find the right theory or the right political ideology to answer the questioned put. However, the House Intelligence Report on their Russian Probe, was botched work and weak sauce. It wasn’t a real deal, its so easy to see, that it was a partisan product, which wasn’t finished, unless the redacted parts would have shed lights into the manner, that could have configured another result. Because the ones who has followed, knows that the House Intelligence Probe quit early and didn’t even investigate all angles. Meaning it quit early to save face and humiliation of possible outcome. That is what I as an outsider can see and Devin Nunes is the bastard kid of Donald Trump from California.
Therefore on page 28, they had to write: “No credible evidence was found supporting either alternative, including a review of information contained in classified intelligence reports”. That was to be expected by the Republican House Intelligence Majority report. However on the same page, its quoted: “Russlan-state actors and third party intermediaries were responslble for the selective dissemination of information from hacked U.S. political systems. This represents a “significant escalation in directness, level of activity, and scope of effort” In Russia’s “longstanding desire to undermine the US-led liberal democratic order.” It is therefore likely that high-level Russian government approval was required in both planning and execution of the operation”. With this in mind, doesn’t the one statement counter the other?
Its like you cannot have significant undermining the democratic order from Russia, high level government approval, without them collusion with anyone? That would be weird, why get involved into something and not have contacts and possible candidates? Why fix to change situations in another country and not know who your cooperate with. It would be like the US is rigging elections in Latin America, which they have historically used to do. They would handpick their man and party, then make sure that the puppet get elected either by a coup or by rigging. That is just the way it is, why would it be differently for Russia in the United States?
When you continue to read through the Republican reports, its like its dodging every bullet and initiative, that every evidence that has been put forward, every signal of connection with Russians as meaningless. For every page that is how its portrayed, every meeting, every leakage. Its like the venom has swallowed the former-patriotic party. Since, the patriotism now isn’t to DC, but maybe to Kremlin. Since they are defending it so much. What is even more striking, is that the narrative of the involvement of Russian Interference in Europe are more key to the Report, than what actually happen in the United States. That the Republican Party tries to sway the opinion and use it as a fire-starter, even as we know they are afraid of really shedding lights on what happen in- and before November 2016.
But while they we’re saying such, “no collusion”, the message of Trump himself, on Page 128, this was stated: “Russian attempts to influence the American political process, including via intermediaries and cut-outs, did not end on Election Day. The universe of pre-and postelection contacts between Russjan intermediaries and Trump associates described in· Chapter 4 suggest a sophisticated effort to target unwitting Americans by leveraging existing relationships, interests, and opportunities. Therefore, both U.S. government entities and campaigns in particular must strengthen their defenses against such subversive tactics, beginning \:nth expanding counterintelligence education and training”. So the Republican Party see the connection and their work, but don’t think these meetings has any ground. Even if they are supported and ordered from Putin. It is weird, but that is initially saying.
Well, when we look at the Minority Report, it has another scope and view on the Russian Probe. The whole intelligence gathering and lack of investigation from the House Committee. Which was evident, as the Majority lead committee wasn’t interested in digging deep or even find anything. That is why we should praise God, that the Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller to investigate the matter within the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). So the whole thing can be pertinently investigated.
However, the first key quote from the Minority report says on page 2: “The Majority’s report reflects a lack of seriousness and interest in pursuing the truth. By refusing to call in key witnesses, by refusing to request pertinent documents, and by refusing to compel and enforce witness cooperation and answers to key questions, the Majority hobbled the Committee’s ability to conduct a credible investigation that could inspire public confidence. The Majority’s conduct has also undermined Congress’ independent investigative authority. Their repeated deferrals to the White House allowed witnesses to refuse cooperation, and permitted the Administration to dictate the terms of their interaction with Congress, or evade congressional oversight altogether, setting a damaging precedent for future non-cooperation by this President and, possibly, by his successors”. This shows what sort of Hack-Work Devin Nunes has done in favor of his President and his Party. Not being loyal to the Republic, but one man on the top.
When you then can quote this from page 9, you know the Republican’s really did everything to dodge the questions needed answering: “The Majority also made no effort to engage the Special Counsel about interviewing central witnesses in this probe: Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort, Rick Gates, George Papadopoulos, and George Nader. To ensure a credible investigation, particularly on the issues of collusion, financial leverage and money laundering, and obstruction of justice, the Committee must interview these individuals. All but Manafort have entered into cooperation agreements with the Special Counsel, and the Committee should have engaged with his office to determine when interviews could proceed without impairing his work. The Minority made a motion to do so at the time the Majority sought adoption of its report, but the Majority voted against pursuing interviews of these key witnesses. The transcript of the March 22, 2018 Committee business meeting is incorporated in Chapter VI. The Majority’s refusal to seek testimony from George Papadopoulos exemplifies its efforts to impair the investigation. Without interviewing Papadopoulos and seeking relevant records to determine whom on the campaign he would have reported this overture to and assess whether any follow-up occurred, the Committee was unable to examine the precise facts regarding Russia’s approach to Papadopoulos, during which they informed him they possessed stolen Clinton-related emails and, crucially, previewed their later dissemination of this information. Only weeks later, the President’s son, Donald Trump, Jr., would take a meeting in Trump Tower with other Russian emissaries offering dirt on Clinton. This yawning gap in the investigative record, and many others, fundamentally undermines the credibility of the Majority’s findings”.
It’s kinda hard to find something, when you don’t investigate. As I said, when your not interviewing the members of the team in question and has decided the verdict before trying. Then, we have to pray that the plea deals, the documents ceased by Mueller by Cohen and the evidence collected from Manafort. Can at a later point, give final nail in the coffin. Because the Republicans really didn’t try, when they are running around not even trying. That is what this shows. Neglect of their role as an Investigation Committee within the Capitol Hill.
On page 11 its said: “The Majority’s systematic refusal to use the Committee’s subpoena power to advance the Russia investigation has weakened Congress’ independent investigative powers. Combined with the Trump Administration’s disregard for congressional authority and disdain for the investigation, this sets a dangerous precedent for future relations between the White House and Congress”. The Majority and Nunes didn’t give way or to subpoenas, which would have gathered information on the possible interference in the elections. Was squashed, just like the possible interviews. If you feel pattern, it is because the neglect of duty is extravagant. If the Republican Representatives tries to pull of patriotic stances after this, its a lie, because their loyalty are to Trump and not to the Republic.
On page 41, the sadness continues: “Similarly, Committee Republicans refused to subpoena the company for records related to communication between WikiLeaks, its founder Julian Assange, or Russian cutouts responsible for disseminating hacked emails—such as Guccifer 2.0 and DC Leaks—and Trump campaign personnel, including Roger Stone and Cambridge Analytica”. If they did care about the interference, about the internal squabble, the stealing of E-Mails and Campaign Material suddenly taken by foreign powers, why didn’t the Majority, the Republican Representatives accept the subpoenas to look into it and get the information from the sources. So that it could be established where they got the data, get the leaked documents and emails. However, the Republican’s couldn’t care or take their time to accept it.
So, the truth is not out yet. But what is really shown, is how the Republicans and the President doing what he can to hide his connections. Even if he is bad at it, because this doesn’t make the Republicans or the President less innocent. It just make you question their motives more, as the obstruction of justice within the Justice Department and within the FBI. Have been shown since the firing of Sally Yates and James Comey. This will continue. Since the Trump Campaign and Trump Organization will be finding certain documents that can incriminate them. Why I say that, why are they stifling the investigations and ordering the Nunes around like a hound dog on the hill?
This story is not over, the Mueller investigation will shed all light, but Nunes again dropped a phony paper. The only thing he is good at these days, he should go back to California and sell wine. Not be a politician, he is bad at it. Peace.
“Putin even sent me a present, beautiful present, with a beautiful note. I spoke to all of his people. And, you know, you look at what he’s doing with President Obama. He’s, like, toying with him. He’s toying with him.” – President Donald J. Trump at the Conservative Political Action Conference (March 2013).
As the tide on the mounting cases on President Donald J. Trump and his associates continues, yesterday, something weird happen. The former Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director James Comey’s memos of his interaction with the President was declassified. This isn’t an everyday action from the Department of Justice, if this was done to stop Devin Nunes and the Representatives Committee on Intelligence from doing a hawkish job on the matter or they wanted total transparency. It is hard to know.
That this is happening as the cases Cohen had against the Steele Dossier and other clients of Trump is forfeited, meaning that the validity of these cases are more striking too. Therefore, there has been big blows to the President and his closest allies. The strength of his defense and his cases in the Russian Probe, in the possible Obstruction of Justice and everything else that might have been illegal. Clearly, has gotten a big showdown with the release of these memos.
There been a lot of writing, but I want to look at the connections with the “golden showers”. Because that really lit things up. The President are really furious over the reporting and also that the Russian possibly have this. Seemingly, every time he talked to Comey, it was intentionally mentioned. Also, that he wanted Flynn not to be implicated. Clearly, he knew about the transgressions and questionable behavior about certain connected individuals in his staff and Campaign Team. But he wanted to clear the air. However, the Flynn angle has been covered by so many people. I am not looking into that. What I find special is the showers and the prostitutes. Because it shows the malicious ways of the President.
First I will show quotes from three of the Memos, that is about the Golden Showers. Than, things that doesn’t add-up.
James Comey wrote in his memo on the 7th January 2017, after having a meeting at the Trump Tower on the 6th January 2017:
“I said, the Russians allegedly had tapes involving him and prostitutes at the Presidential Suite at the Ritz Carlton in Moscow from about 2013. He interjected, “there were no prostitutes; there were never prostitutes.” He then said something about him being the kind of guy who didn’t need to “go there” and laughed (which I understood to be communicating that he didn’t need to pay for sex). He said “2013” to himself, as if trying to remember that period of time, but didn’t add anything, He said he always assumed that hotel rooms he stayed in when he travels are wired in some way. I replied that I do as well”.
The Memo from the 28th January 2017 stated this:
“At about this point, he turned to what he called “the golden showers thing” and recounted much of what he had said previously on that topic. He repeated that it was a complete fabrication and “fake news”. I explained again why I had thought it important that he know about it. I also explained that one of the reasons we told him was that the media, CNN in particular, was telling us they were about to run with it. He said it bothered him if his wife thought there was one percent chance it was true in any respect. He said he had spoken to people who had been on the Miss Universe trip with him and they had reminded him that he didn’t stay over night in Russia for that. He said he arrived in the morning, did events, then showered and dressed for the pageant at the hotel (he didn’t say hotel name) and left for the pageant. Afterwards, he returned only to get his things because they departed for New York by plane the same night. He said he thought maybe he should ask me to investigate the whole thing to prove it was a lie. I did not ask any questions. I replied that it was up to him, but I wouldn’t create a narrative that we were investigating him, because we are not and I worried such a thing would be misconstrued. I also said that it is very difficult to disprove a lie. He said “maybe you’re right” but several times asked me to think about it and said he would also think about it”.
From the Memo on the 8th February 2017:
“The President brought up the “Golden Showers thing” and said it really bothered him if his wife had any doubts about it. He then explained, as he did at our dinner, that he hadn’t stayed overnight in Russia during the Miss Universe trip. Twice during this part of the conversation Reince tried to interject a comment about the (Blurred out) and “why it even in there” but the President ignored him. The President said “the hookers thing” is nonsense but that Putin had told him “we have some of the beautiful hookers in the world” (he did not say when Putin had told him this and I don’t recall (blurred text))”.
From the Memo on 30th March 2017:
“He went to great length, explaining that he has nothing to do with Russia (has a letter from the largest law firm in DC saying he got no income from Russia), was not involved with hookers in Russia (can you imagine me, hookers? I have beautiful wife, and it has been very painful) is bringing a personal lawsuit against Christopher Steele, always advice people to assume they are being recorded in Russia. Has accounts now from those who travelled with him to the Miss Universe pageant that he didn’t do anything etc.”
The thing that strikes me, is that for someone to travel to host and is a co-owner of Miss Universe, it would be weird just to pop-by and leave. Doesn’t that sound weird to you? That doesn’t sound like a coherent owner of something. Not that Trump is consistent on things, but that just doesn’t make sense of the quotes from the President. That he was briefly by and didn’t spend time. However, there been other reporting on that matter, that sounds more reasonable.
“The future U.S. president’s journey to Moscow began in North Carolina, where he attended the birthday tribute to evangelist Billy Graham on Thursday, Nov. 7, 2013. Federal Aviation Administration flight records obtained by Bloomberg through the Freedom of Information Act show Trump’s Cessna jet took off from Asheville, North Carolina, at 9:57 p.m. that night, landing at New York’s La Guardia Airport at 11:05 p.m” (…) “Trump surfaced on Friday, Nov. 8, in a Facebook post by Nobu Moscow. He was posing in daylight outside the restaurant with Emin, wearing a red tie and a dark overcoat” (…) “At some point on Sunday, Nov. 10, Trump jetted home to New York, where that evening he tweeted about his return: “I just got back from Russia-learned lots & lots. Moscow is a very interesting and amazing place! U.S. MUST BE VERY SMART AND VERY STRATEGIC.” (Silver, Vernon & Pismennaya – ‘Trump’s Two Nights of Parties in Moscow Echo Years Later’ 13.07.2017, Bloomberg Politics).
So thanks to his own posts on Social Media, he was there from 8th November 2013 to 10th November 2013. That means 48 hours and a lot of activity, which we cannot verify. But that is a counter-claim and have ability to show, how he was lying into the face of the former FBI Director Comey. President Trump is known for lying, therefore, that isn’t breaking news. What is more striking is the relevancy of the time and the possibility of hookers in Moscow in 2013. That the Steele Dossier are more relevant again, since the Personal Suit against Christopher Steele was this week canceled, as well as these Memo’s was released. It is fitting and more powerful, than the releases of information from the Nunes memo or anything in connection with him.
We can wonder gifts he has given before and after. Since nothing subtle about this man, this president of the United States. Is something as rare and blindly obvious at the same time. What we do know, is that he is compromised by the Russians. He hasn’t really enacted any real sanctioned and never acted on the resolutions and sanctions made by Congress. Therefore, the knowledge of his long-standing relations with Russians are there. As well as the investigations are reveal new sides all the time and new connections, that was in the sphere of Trump. Robert Mueller must have a field day with the release of these Memo’s. Since, this vindicates him and his investigation.
Time will, tell if there was pee-tapes, golden showers and prostitutes touching the presidents dingy, however, I wouldn’t be surprised he had secret relationship with former Playboy Bunny, a Porn Stars and models in the past. So, this man is capable of anything, especially cheating on his wife. Because that is something he has done since he first got married. Check his history, I am not lying. Peace.
That Michael Cohen, the Personal Attorney to the United States President Donald J. Trump, feels violated is natural, that Trump feels bad about it too. That is also all natural, they don’t want the republic to know their dirty work, neither the Tax-Returns or anything else that the Trump Organization has tried to keep a secret. The Russian Probe is going into major field, with the raid of the personal lawyer of Trump.
The indictments of the past year and the plea agreements will fellow former Trump Aides are important, as the Special Counsel Robert Mueller Investigation is building a solid case to bring to court, not just circumstantial evidence, but proof of unlawful behavior by the Trump Campaign and the Trump Organization. That will now be exposed as the Trump Lawyer has been raided after Search Warrant was issued from the Southern District of New York (SDNY).
That Cohen feels under fire is to be expected, as he has tried to get his own stuff review and evaluated for the prospects of standing charged in court. So he knows what documents the state does have or not. The SDNY has dismissed this as a way of stalling the investigation. Yet another proof, that the Trump Lawyer and Trump Organization haven’t been that transparent. That they ones investigated haven’t delivered the complied documents and communications, since the state saw it necessary to raid his office, hotel and electronic devices.
The good thing with it all, was that the Court denied the Motion of Cohen, so that the SDNY can look into the Stormy Daniels situation and all the other running court cases that is in the making. Even copy and file the evidence that can be used by the Russian Probe. This was hitting the heart of the Trumpland. A place that the President cannot touch right now, unless he wants to further obstruct justice to save his own face for a minute.
The New York Gang which has resides in the Trump Tower in Manhattan should worry. As Paul Manafort, Richard Gates, Michael Flynn, Carter Paige, George Papadopoulos and Alex Van Der Zwaan. The list goes on people who has been connected with Russia and many been indicted. The likes of Gates, Flynn and Papadopoulos have already a plea deal and collaborate with the investigation. While Manafort and Van Der Zwaan are still deep in the spotlight as the investigation goes further.
If Donald Trump Junior goes on Fox News and calls it a ‘Nothing Burger’ now, he certainly doesn’t know what nothing looks like. Unlike he talking about the nothing of marriages that has gone bonkers. Well, that was a sidetrack, but the New York Gang is feeling the pressure, the President continues to pound on it all. Claim witch-hunt and attack the FBI who are conducting the investigation. That must be, because the basis of investigation and the levels of knowledge of the operations from the Trump Organization, the Trump Tower and the Trump Campaign is coming into full-play.
That the Trump’s should fear this, they should, because who knows what sort of details and transactions, what sort of communications Cohen has kept on his devices. What was striking in the documents delivered to the court was this quote: “The searches are the result of a months-long investigation into Cohen, and seek evidence of crimes, many of which have nothing to do with his work as an attorney, but rather related to Cohen’s own business dealings”. We can just imagine what they can be, but that means the indications and the proof of shady deals and such is already in the works. So that the FBI could secure a Warrant to cease documents and raid his offices and hotel.
This is far from over, the stories will be coming, the New York Gang doesn’t sleep, but the net around them is getting closer to the boss on the top. More and more people are connected and the net is catching more evidence on the way. We will know for sure, but the Mueller Investigation will shed light into darkness, show what can be proof of evidence of criminal activity by the gang.
The New York Gang should fear this and they are, if not, the President wouldn’t be so furious and mad on Twitter and in statements. We just have to see how this continues. But the ones saying this is nothing, is lying to you. The state wouldn’t raid an Attorney’s Office without anything suspicious activity, that had to be sealed by the justice in Court before it was issued. Therefore, the many of his own business deals can be seen as questionable, also as the Attorney for the President and his own company. That is why the Cohen raid shows how much evidence the state has now on the Trump Organization and even on the Trump Campaign. Peace.
The White House continue its purge on its staff, the Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin, who has been working there since Trump Presidency begun. Even the Department of Veteran Affairs was looking forward to have Shulkin at the helm in January 2017. Now in March 2018, he is gone. Just like so many, there has been so many people who has left this administration. What is more striking, is who the President has picked to be his successor.
The White House has picked his personal physician Ronny Jackson. He has been a naval officer and worked for two presidents before in the White House, but that as a doctor, not an administrator. He has no history of working a big administration. He has no prior knowledge of bureaucracy or the inner-works of government. Just like the President, who hires people carelessly. That is why the White House Communication Team got a new member yesterday, the former Disney Starlet Charlotte Sunshine. She will work in tandem with Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Clearly, the shakes-up continue and is ever working. Ironically, Sunshine played a character in Disney on ‘Shake it Up’, the theme of how the President hires and fires personnel.
Now, that also Shulkin is gone, the man that the DVA was looking forward to work for and his leadership. Now, we will see how the presidents doctor will do and if the doctor get the clearance from the Congress, since as a secretary, he needs that, since he has no prior clearance.
At this point, it is hard to imagine more narrow and weird appointments, as the President are picking people he is watching on TV. He is not looking at experts or people in the fields of expertise, or experience. That is lacking, that is not important. Just imagine if Obama picked someone who was on Bloomberg or The View to be in cabinet. That would wreck havoc, but in Trump era its a Tuesday.
This White House is a mess, but a mess that the President created and wanted to create. At this point, he cannot blame anyone else, even though he will do it with passion on Twitter. It is weird, but natural at this point to hire his own physician. That should be a no-no, but here it is go-go. But this is the same government, that doesn’t care about nepotism or growing conflict of interests. Where the slumlords, the real-estate businesses and foreign investments are more important, than policy. Such a beautiful day in DC to be able to use the power for personal gain, just ask Kushner about that.
Now we know, that if your face on TV, you can be picked, if you speak well of the President, you can get appointed. That is the knowledge we can get from this. That is why Jackson suddenly gets appointed. Which is insane. Peace.
The ones like Devin Nunes we’re yesterday in fundraising e-mails saying liberal democrats are making the Russian collusion up to his supporters. While Special Counsel Robert Mueller are continuing working on the case, that the kind of so-called patriots are undermining. Nunes are like a weasel, who run around pointing liar, liar, but he should look into himself. That can be said, as a European lawyer, who has already been indicted gotten his sentencing memorandum yesterday. It is viable and shows how many people at play, within the running Russian scandal. Nunes knows this, but he wants to obstruct justice, instead of being a patriot and see where the breadcrumbs are leading him. That is the proof of the recent events.
So, why do I say all that, because in the memorandum from Mueller. It has certain statements, that is not only interesting, but true fire under any investigation. The defendant Alex Van Der Zwaan, lied deliberately to the Special Counsel and also directly destroyed evidence. Even as the investigation knew about it. That shows how much and how good at digging these fellow FBI Agents are and the prosecutors within his team.
You know that you have a pickle, not just in the United States, but also in Ukraine, when these sort of stories get unleashed: “As referenced in the indictment, the law firm had been paid over $5 million for its work, largely through third-party payments by a Ukrainian oligarch, funneled through a Manafort and Gates Cypriot account. The Ukraine potential criminal matter concerned the allegation that in 2012-13 the then-government of Ukraine had disclosed that the firm was being paid only about $12,000 (an amount above which Ukraine law would have required a different procurement process)” (Mueller, 27.03.2018).
So he has lied, destroyed evidence and been paid vastly by Ukrainian oligarch through the known former Trump Campaign Manager Manafort and former Trump Aide Gates. Clearly, the scope is leading in a nice direction and the breadcrumbs are not so small. Soon they are getting into a slice of bread.
Further on, this is really enlightening: “That Gates and Person A were directly communicating in September and October 2016 was pertinent to the investigation. Federal Bureau of Investigation Special Agents assisting the Special Counsel’s Office assess that Person A has ties to a Russian intelligence service and had such ties in 2016. During his first interview with the Special Counsel’s Office, van der Zwaan admitted that he knew of that connection, stating that Gates told him Person A was a former Russian Intelligence Officer with the GRU” (Mueller, 27.03.2018).
So because of the unknown Russian mentioned in the memorandum of Mueller, we can clearly state the work of Van Der Zwaan and with the Trump Associates, who also are working directly with Ukrainian oligarchs, but also spies from Kremlin within GRU. If that isn’t a warning sign of your affairs, nothing is. That Gates knew this and was doing that, shows how they we’re working, what happen behind the seen other than money laundering for Ukrainian oligarchs is hard to know.
Still, it shows signs of how Mueller operates, as he has the information and wants to see if you will reveal or if you will lie. It isn’t that the defendant is lying, it is that Mueller is knowledge and can use it against the ones he building a case against. There isn’t any foul play, but good work and collection of evidence. That is why he had it covered. He can also with this implicate and build timeline with Manafort and Gates, which is telling.
This should be warning, a starch warning, that if he can do this with Van Der Zwaan, who lied, tried to deceive and destroy evidence. That Mueller already knew and that there was no escape. There really is. Nothing left. Don’t try to play Mueller, at this point him and his team will outsmart you. Peace.
