Russian Probe: Roger Stone is ordered to appear before the Grand Jury!

What sort of Gold Nugget in the Treasury Chest came in the Russian Probe today, well, there is revealed through Court Document from Washington D.C. Beryl C. Howell ordered Trump-Aide and Associate Roger Stone to appear before the Grand Jury. This is breaking news and also astonishing enough in itself.

That the attorneys of Stone couldn’t produce legitimate reasons to dismiss and argue for not participating, says also a lot about him at this point. This means that Robert Mueller can continue to pursuit his subpoenaed documents from the aide and also get this:

For the foregoing reasons, the Witness’s Second Motion to Quash Subpoena is denied. Consequently, the witness is ordered, pursuant to the grand jury subpoenas served by the Special Counsel, to appear before the grand jury to provide testimony at the earliest date available to the grand jury, and to complete production of the subpoenaed records promptly” (UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA – Grand Jury Action No. 18-34 (BAH), 31.07.2018).

For the ones thinking, why hasn’t Roger Stone come up before or been part earlier, maybe because of the way he has tried to weasel himself out. In the Court Filings, he has not answered or replied to any of the subpoenas that Mueller have sent and therefore, the final order is the reason for the stalling of his participation in the case itself.

He is not a nobody as this was written about him in 1986: “At 33, Roger Stone — college dropout and Watergate dirty trickster — is either the hottest political consultant or the slickest self-promoter in town, depending on whom you ask. “He is the single best Republican consultant in a cluster of stars,” says close friend John Buckley, press secretary to Rep. Jack Kemp (R-N.Y.), whom Stone serves as a political adviser. “He’s one of the great all-time frauds of American politics,” says New Right point man Paul Weyrich, national chairman of the Free Congress Political Action Committee. “His reputation vastly exceeds his ability.”” (…) “His office at Black Manafort Stone & Kelly, the high-profile lobbying firm, is decorated in muted tones of gray. Stone, who served as Ronald Reagan’s regional political director for the Northeast in the 1980 presidential campaign, sits behind a large desk, his tasseled loafers propped up” (Stephanie Mansfield – ‘The Rise And Gall of Roger Stone’ 16.06.1986 link:https://www.washingtonpost.com/archive/lifestyle/1986/06/16/the-rise-and-gall-of-roger-stone/d8ce308b-7055-4666-860e-378833f46e17/?utm_term=.a526526d7b5d).

The company he worked for was Black Manafort Stone & Kelly together with Manafort, whose already on trial for dozens of count. Therefore, today the is special, when his former associate is also have to appear in front of the grand jury. To top it off, let show one sign of the long relationship with Trump. He has been a close associate since 1979, met through Roy Cohn, who was an associate at the lobbying firm he worked with in the 1980s. Therefore, the connection of him showing up before a Grand Jury must be interesting. Also, whatever he has done together with Paul Manafort, who is the first person put on trial by the Russian Probe by the Special Counsel Mueller.

This here will just get more interesting, as the Probe are pulling the net around Trump, piece by piece into the world of the President. This saga is far from over, but certainly a bleak day for Trump Campaign. Peace.

Russian Probe: Manafort Finally on Trial!

Finally, the long awaited trial for the former Trump Campaign Manager Paul Manafort, this happen today on the 31st July 2018. There will be a long time before anything is settled in Court. However, what we will know is the evidence value and the witness testimony for what Manafort has done before becoming Campaign Manager and also while being it for President Donald J. Trump.

We know there are dozens of counts of conspiracy, money laundering and tax evasion, which Manafort have to answer, as well as being a Foreign Agent without being Registered. This here will all come to light. Today, he was denied the will to turn-over the Pre-Trial Detention Order, which the Court of Columbia District dismissed. So, even as the Grand Jury released their opening statement today, the political asset of Trump lost in Court again.

Now the realities of his business, his wealth and his connections will all come to light, the dark shadow world of foreign influence and use of Ukraine connections will the headlines, but also show the ones who are in his network. Therefore, the plea deal of Richard Gates will be telling, as the former associate and partner. All the other government witnesses will swear affidavits, that could hurt him even more.

Therefore, the coming days, the reality of the world of Manafort will be offered to the world. Explaining the accounts, the companies and the networks he has created for himself. Also lack of taxation and the other questionable behavior from the political operative, who has used his skills and made a life sponging on others.

Who knows what will be the reality and what sort of play the defense of Manafort will use and who they will sell out. As these charges, mountain of evidence and witnesses will tell stories that Manafort doesn’t want in the spotlight.

We will just know, but now the first piece of the puzzle within the Russian Probe has started. Alex Van Der Zwaan have already been in jail awaiting trial too. Therefore, the case is progressing and the future indictments will show. Nothing will stop this, as long as the Special Counsel is collecting evidence and making the case solid.

Manafort are in loads of trouble, whatever Mueller has in his net and awaiting to put out of his chest is hard to know. Certainly, this is not something can be anticipated, as there will be daily games of spinning it and making sure the hot water is getting lukewarm. Peace.

Russian Probe: Manafort Case Alexandria Division – Government Witness List (27.07.2018)

Russian Probe/Skeet Skeet Skeet Part 16: Special Master Report on Michael D. Cohen now releases 12 tapes related to him (23.07.2018)

Russian Probe: Mueller’s Witnesses revealed, but keeping their immunity as the Manafort Case continues!

Clearly, the Court in Alexandria in Virginia ordered in favor of the defendant of Paul Manafort, as the Special Counsel Robert Mueller have to reveal who is his 5 witnesses are. This will show some more of the cards of evidence that the government has against him. This is opening up the defense and the attorneys of Manafort. Who can in pretrial time together with their client prepare for the knowledge the witnesses has to bring. They will not be surprised by the possible statements and affidavits made by the witnesses.

Today we know that James Brennan, Donna Duggan, Conor O’Brien, Cindy Laporta and Dennis Raico. These were the fellow individuals the Special Counsel wanted immunity got it. They have been identified though, therefore, people can begin to speculate about their connection with Manafort. While this is happening today, the court also delayed the trial to the 31st July 2018.

Therefore, this is a good day in general for the Manafort team, but still this shows the back-men in and around him. That is why the speculation about who they are and what they have done in the past. This is a big win and the immunity is losing it. As the Court has given leeway to the public to address the individuals who have sworn to the Special Counsel to witness against Manafort.

This here show the way of the trial and also that the possible plea deal with Manafort is also gone. As the Manafort are preparing for trial, while the courts are using their time. So the defendant surely had some good day in court, even if the witnesses have immunity, they are now exposed and known. They are not kept as a secret.

This simultaneously court trials in Washington D.C. and Virginia is becoming an advantage for Manafort, even if the Special Counsel have the evidence and is collecting the records to build his case against Manafort. Still the judges and the case work is coming through.

Let’s see what they testify and says when the Trial starts, but this has a nerve and you can wonder is the next step or if the Special Counsel will drop more motions to show more evidence and make the defendant team scratch their heads, even as the amount of evidence against them is staggering. The paper-trail is showing the conspiracy.

We can just wait for the start and see, what more will be revealed. The case haven’t started, but the build-up have been prolonged and the documentation of it all is becoming huge. It isn’t just hearsay, but actual documents that tells the story of what Manafort did as unregisted foreign agent for a foreign power. Peace.

Carter Page’s FISA Application: Proves the need for surveillance of him!

Now, the FISA Applications of Carter W. Page been leaked, for whatever reason, as the Republican Party or the Devin Nunes Intelligence Committee in Congress to spin-the-news cycle again. The Russian Probe is on-going and the details of the connections to the Trump Campaign is coming out. Therefore, they need to advance it or force some sort of play. Who knows why now, after failing reports from the Congress in February 2018. That is totally in disregard to the Intelligence Community, who has been on the other spectrum considering the Russian interference with the Campaign of 2016.

The First thing the FISA Application from October 2016 and beyond is redacted as hell, but is still saying that he was an agent of a foreign power, the Russian Federation, where he gathered intelligence for that power. Page was targeted in recruitment by the Russian government to undermine and influence the outcome of the 2016 U.S. Presidential Elections.

What this document shows again and again, is that FBI together with other parts has been able to show enough documentation of possible conspiracy by Page to continue to wire-tap and monitor him for his activities for Russia. They have been able to collect enough information on Page to be able to renew and file the application through the court. Therefore, he has had enough conspiracy and connections for the state to continue to monitor him.

Because they been able to file and renew again and again. That proves that the FBI have been able to collect and show evidence for the need because of the activity that Page has been doing for the Russians as their agent. Therefore, weird that the Trump Campaign had him as Foreign Advisor during the campaigns.

If, the Republican party and the people behind the leak thought it was wise to leak a redacted FISA application, it was not. It has only proven that the for a long time the FBI has been able to produce enough evidence for renewal and to prove the need to monitor Page. Because the FBI follows the provisions of the law before applying for a FISA Application.

So, we can hope the leak backfires, this just proves that the Trump Campaign had no trouble to hire someone in the eye of the FBI. Just like Trump didn’t follow recommendation on Michael Flynn and his agent business abroad either. Therefore, let see how this plays out. Peace.

Russian Probe: U.S. Vs. Paul Manafort – Non-Confidential Memorandum in Support of Motion to Seal the Government’s Motions for use Immunity for Trial Testimony (17.07.2018)

Opinion: Is Trump in Putin’s Pocket?

It might be possible that you didn’t believe he was the Manchurian Candidate, however after this Joint Conference in Helsinki, Finland this 16th July 2018, than you might believe it too. Who am I talking about, by all means Donald J. Trump, the United States President, he seems clearly compromised and looks like he is in the pocket of the Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin. Since they can hold a secretive meeting for two hours and say whatever they like afterwards. There were no one else than two people translating between the parties and no one to monitor the event. Meaning, in the meeting they could be talking about their wives, their ex-girlfriends or even about the deals they have done in the past. Therefore, as the defensive President Trump was in the Joint Conference, it is hard to believe anything the liar says. However, he has always been apologetic over Putin and Russia. Today, it went to level of foolishness.

The key quotes of Trump foolishness is right here:

TRUMP: So let me just say that we have two thoughts. You have groups that are wondering why the FBI never took the server. Why haven’t they taken the server? Why was the FBI told to leave the office of the Democratic National Committee? I’ve been wondering that I’ve been asking that for months and months and I’ve been tweeting it out and calling it out on social media. Where is the server? I want to know where is the server and what is the server saying? With that being said, all I can do is ask the question. My people came to me Dan Coats came to me and some others they said they think it’s Russia. I have President Putin. He just said it’s not Russia. I will say this: I don’t see any reason why it would be. But I really do want to see the server but I have I have confidence in both parties. I really believe that this will probably go on for a while but I don’t think it can go on without finding out what happened to the server. What happened to the servers of the Pakistani gentleman that worked on the DNC? Where are those servers? They’re missing. Where are they? What happened to Hillary Clinton’s emails? 33000 emails gone, just gone. I think in Russia they wouldn’t be gone so easily. I think it’s a disgrace that we can’t get Hillary Clinton’s thirty three thousand e-mails. So I have great confidence in my intelligence people but I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today and what he did is an incredible offer he offered to have the people working on the case come and work with their investigators, with respect to the 12 people. I think that’s an incredible offer. Thank you” (National Public Radio – ‘Transcript: Trump And Putin’s Joint Press Conference’ 16.07.2018, link: https://www.npr.org/2018/07/16/629462401/transcript-president-trump-and-russian-president-putins-joint-press-conference?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter ).

It is like he doesn’t trust the FBI, neither any other parts of his intelligence organizations, but if Putin says it isn’t so, it isn’t so. How blind or dumb is he? Trump is showing his ignorance and played ones. Thinking he can get away with this. Certainly, this should put people into fire in the United States. He shows how compromised he is. Not that I believe the Congress or Capitol Hill will do anything, because they have been helping this charade going for months. They have worked against the Russian Probe on the hill and also against the works of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Therefore, he might continue as he said nothing.

President Trump has really shown his golden nugget. I got Putin. Putin said so, therefore, I had to believe him. It is like he is oblivious about the transfers of information caught by the investigation, neither about the leaks and revelations that has been. The strong connections and the meeting between the Trump Campaign and Russians. Even the not secured meeting with former Ambassador Kislyak and Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. All of that should let the bell rings, still the Republican Party has done nothing or anything worth a damn.

Now that he speaks like this, the US should be shocked, but will they act upon it? I doubt it. Than they had done already. President Trump is the Manchurian Candidate and he trusts more the denial of Putin, than his intelligence organizations. You could wonder why?

Does Putin have the Pee Tape and the Golden Shower video from the Miss Universe days in Moscow?

Is that why Trump is accepting and is in the pocket of Putin?

Certainly, he has been to friendly and compromised, the US should be shocked of the way Trump has acted in public today. Peace.

Russian Probe: Mueller is unmasking Guccifer 2.0 & DC Leaks!

As the case is proceeding on the Russian interference, today is another day in the proof of conspirators from Russia who directly interfered in the United States Presidential Elections of 2016. This as 12 more Russians are indicted. This is explaining connections to the hacking from two major sites, which was even in the headlines as they leaked vital information from the inside of the Democratic Party to vandalize the affair. They clearly succeeded.

These was operations done through Main Intelligence Directorate of the General Staff (“GRU”) who ordered and fixed the operation, this planned hacking and release of stolen document was deliberate activity to undermine the democratic efforts in the United States. They stole e-mails and document in the April 2016 from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), they did also steal from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and finally the Clinton Campaign too.

After stealing it, they planned how to release it in June 2016 as the launch of Presidential Campaigns and also in the finalization of the long campaign season into the polls. These document was released through DC Leaks and Guccifer 2.0, these are two pages where the hacked documents was released. What these indictments show, is that they have not touched on the stolen E-Mails from campaign manager John Podesta and the Clinton Campaign, which was released in the months ahead of the polls in 2016.

Therefore, Robert Mueller is showing that he has evidence of conspiracy towards 12 more individuals, also the GRU connections, which shows that the Kremlin wanted to interfere and did it directly. This is shown in combination of the previous indictments of Russians and the Internet Research Agency and connected “businesses”. These two filings of documents shows how sophisticated the activity was. These activities are with a clear mission to show the dark side of the party organization in the United States.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has pumped up the ante. Now it is on. As well as the cases going with Paul Manafort and the coming cases on Michael Flynn, George Papadopolous, Alex Van Der Zwaan, Richard Gates, Michael Cohen and the rest. There are certainly enough documentation and leads to go anywhere. As all of them have done certain things and far from everything has come to the surface.

There are more information to come, but when it has been this much evidence and connections directly to Kremlin by the FBI. You know their will be revealed even more, when the trials are starting. As of now, the cards are hold tight by the State Prosecutors. There will be more and more people involved. Who knows where this goes, but this is far from final. Peace.

Fresh Senate ICA report states: “Russian preference for Trump”!

The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) have delivered a fresh Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA) on the Russian Interference in the United States Presidential Election of 2016. This is the 3rd July 2018, that this still has put in fine print, says more about the muddy American Politics and the compromised Capitol Hill. Since, if they really was afraid of the interference and the foreign actors intervening in the elections. They would have acted upon more quickly and swiftly. Not letting this taking so long time. The Investigation from Robert Mueller and the FBI is different, as that would be by law and by procedure, the SSCI should have been able to follow leads and make sure there are provisions for law-officers to guide their actions by. However, that hasn’t been the case.

The investigation from Mueller are continuing, but what is being said to today in the report is damning. The reality of the matter is what the Russians did and the meetings, the involvement and their direct influence to sway the elections in favor of Trump. Nothing else than that should be fact by this point.

The report itself states: “The Committee finds the difference in confidence levels between the NSA and the CIA and FBI on the assessment that “Putin and the Russian Government aspired to help President-elect Trump’s election chances” appropriately represents analytic differences and was reached in a professional and transparent manner” (…) “The Committee concurs with intelligence and open-source assessments that this influence campaign was approved by President Putin” (…) “The ICA relies on public Russian leadership commentary, Russian state media reports, public examples of where Russian interests would have aligned with candidates’ policy statements, and a body of intelligence reporting to support the assessment that Putin and the Russian Government developed a clear preference for Trump” (SSCI – ICA, 03.07.2018).

This is not really news anymore, this has been stated many times and in various reports. There been revelations after revelations, which has shown more and more people tied to Kremlin and Russia; Which have all happen to talk and have meetings with Trump Campaign staff and high-ranking officials. This is not happening on mere coincidence… that is happening deliberately.

That the SSCI is saying this now, is interesting timing, but still good. As the President is busy meeting the Russians and want to have secret meeting alone with Putin. If there ever was a Russian Manchurian candidate, that would be his wish. Just like when he had no press or other employees with him in the White House, talking to Russian Ambassador and Russian Foreign Minister. Because that is just weird and also suspect.

There are to many signs and to many meetings to not questioning it. Also, the act of hacking and steering the conversation in the media, which has been done by Russian use of Social Media. Clearly, Trump Campaign has gained a lot on that and the leaks of documents that was done on Clinton.

Therefore, this report is continuing the path of showing how damaged the American Democracy is, as the President is destroying it, piece by piece. As his own whims as in favor of Putin and not of the people.

This report is dropped as the meeting between Putin and Trump is happening. Where all stuff are showing such magnificent friendship, as the national security or the loyalty to own Republic doesn’t matter.

Well, the Republicans doesn’t care if they are sold the Kremlin, so why should the world care. Trump is a tard made by Putin. Pravda bitches! Peace.
