Trump-Russia: Bredhoff & Kaiser P.L.L.C – Statement on behalf of Christopher Steele and Orbis Business Intelligence in response to the DOJ OIG Report into the Crossfire Hurricane Investigation (10.12.2019)

Opinion: How many of the President’s men has to get caught, before they catch him?

We have had the President National Security Advisor General Michael Flynn. The Second one was the Presidents Counsel and Lawyer Michael Cohen. His Campaign Manager for a time being, Paul Manafort is also charged and behind bars. Today, another long time associate of the President Roger Stone was charged for lying as a witness and not cooperating with the authorities with subpoenaed documents to the Mueller Investigation. Therefore, his now awaiting sentencing, as the federal jury found him guilty.

Together with the other ones whose already plead guilty like Richard Gates, Alexander Van Der Zwaan, George Papadopolous and Richard Pinedo.

The ones whose already sentenced are Cohen, Van Der Zwaan, Papadopolous, Pinedo and Paul Manafort. Manafort is the only one behind bars and convicted.

This shows the legal ramifications of things and the amount of people around the President. His team of apparently crooks. There is no denying in that. When you have so many people around you, whose indicted, later charged, found guilty and awaiting sentencing. Finally getting convicted for their crimes. Shows to what extent the people around the President have no quarrels doing the illegal bidding for the President.

That what bothers me, how many of his men has to fall before it matters. Before people understand that Trump brought the New York Gang. He brought the gangsters and the ones who doesn’t care about the law. The ones who has no trouble breaching the statutes, the limitations of the law for a personal gain or a favour. That’s why his willing to do anything to get a upper hand. This who Trump is and what he stands for. Firstly, his own inflated ego, but also that his supposed to get a cut of everything he touches.

Therefore, the men around has sacrificed their careers and their lives, they have done the final bidding for him and they will be felons. They are no criminals, whose breached the laws in various ways and the juries found it out. They got evidence and the now the last one for now was Stone. But there are more associates to come, as his new lawyer Rudy Giuliani is ensuring that his Ukrainian associates are behind bars too. They will all answer for their crimes, in do time.

It is like, no matter where you look. You’ll find someone corrupted, misusing their office or extending their hand into the cookie jar. Just like other appointed leaders within the Trump administration and so-on.

Roger Stone lied about his connection and talks with Wikileaks. Stone is now awaiting sentencing and conviction. That shows what sort of friend the President has. His yet another one and shows the systematic arrangements made by the Trump Campaign and the Trump Transition Team. They were all indicted and have to answer for the crimes they committed.

Certainly, the GOP will not say this, but it is a pattern. When so many people involved is in legal jeopardy, when so many are facing time. It is no denying that the head of this will also sooner or later answer for his association. Not only his enforcers and his capo’s. Even his consigliere is facing time too. Therefore, we know something is up.

Trump cannot hide from the fact, that his associates, his people have been caught. It just a matter of time before he will face it too. Peace.

Russian Probe: Trump Jr. and McGahn never testified before the Grand Jury!

Well, there are certain fellows who are hiding things, as they are not willing to testify and stand-up in front of the Grand Jury investigation in the Russian Probe, which was producing the Mueller Report. Surely, if all parties, the ones who plead guilty and sort out deals, and the ones on the sideline had followed the subpoenas, than the produced report to Congress would have looked different.

By what was released today by the Department of Justice. Is revealing. It is again showing the conspiracy of this administration to keep secrets and lack transparency. As Don McGahn didn’t testify, neither did the first son of the clan, Donald Trump Junior. The one who had the famous meeting in the Trump Tower and has never told a straight story since. Except lying and nepotism as the one of the family members close to the President.

Therefore, what is really evident. Was that Special Counsel wasn’t able to fulfil his mission, because the Department of Justice didn’t let or the associates of Trump wasn’t complying. Just like the President wasn’t either. Just like we see with the Congress investigating into the acts of the President. The state, all agencies are blocking the release of documents in-connection with the Trump-Ukraine scandal. The same was surely happening with the Trump-Russia Probe too.

Therefore, today’s revelation isn’t shocking. But more a pattern of the New York Gang and their state operations. That they will keep their friends close, but their enemies even closer.

We can surely see why, because we know that Jr. cannot hold his tongue just like his father. He will lie and forget the previous ones. That is why, he cannot testify, because sooner or later he corner himself in, if not he reveals shady dealings by close associates and he cannot do that.

Don McGahn was just showing loyalty. Which was subpoenaed, the former White House Counsel has done the bidding of his previous boss. But this puts into question what he knows and what he did in regards to the matter. This disgraces his name and questions if he cares about the law.

What we do know is that they will tarnish this report. That they didn’t testify. But if someone did hurt the Trump Organization or Trump Campaign. They would burn them and seal their fate for life. But since its them, then the law doesn’t matter. That is what the world has learned from this administration. The law doesn’t matter to them, but matters to everyone else. Others has to answer to subpoenas, but these people are above that. Peace.

U.S. Senate Intelligence Report: IRA worked in-favour of Trump!

We know already by the various reports dropped post United States Elections 2016. Plus the Mueller Report and others have verified over the years how the Russians used Social Media and how they weaponized it, as an advantage for the President. This was all an advantage for President Trump and his closest associates, whatever the Russians did and what disinformation, what sort of peddling of fake-news and so on.

Which in the Social Media report from the U.S. Senate Intelligence released today. Has some quotes worth mentioning still. It is just a little more flesh on the bone. But still not the whole chicken. They are not releasing everything and some things are still seen as secret. They are still redacted and therefore, some information are kept secret.

However, what is said is saying a little and shows a pattern, that is known already.

The Committee found that the Russian government tasked and supported the IRA’ s interference in the 2016 U.S. election. This finding is consistent with the Committee’s understanding of the relationship between IRA owner Yevgeniy Prigozhin and the Kremlin, the aim and scope of the interference by the IRA, and the correlation between the IRA’s actions and electoral interference by the Russian government in other contexts and by other means. Despite Moscow’s denials, the direction and financial involvement of Russian oligarch Yevgeniy Prigozhin, as well as his close ties to high-level Russian government officials including President Vladimir Putin, point to significant Kremlin support, authorization, and direction of the IRA’ s operations and goals”.

The IRA built a wide-ranging information operation designed to complement these other Russian influence activities directed toward interfering with and undermining U.S. democracy in 2016. The expanse and depth of this effort would only be understood in the aftermath of that campaign”

At the direction of the Kremlin, the IRA sought to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election by harming Hillary Clinton’s chances of success and supporting Donald. Trump”

Evidence of an overarching pro-Trump and anti-Clinton bias leading up to Election Day 2016 is also found in information obtained by Special Counsel’s Office. For instance, IRA employees were directed to focus on U.S. politics and to “use any opportunity to criticize Hillary and the rest (except Sanders and Trump-we support”them)”.

These three quotes from the report was the vital ones from me. They say what their mission was, why did what they did and how. It is a deliberate act of the IRA on directions and orders from Kremlin to do this, to favour Trump and his candidacy. Nothing else can be taken from this. That is what the Russians did in 2016. They used social media and various of media techniques to spread their message. This can only been seen as an direct interference in favour of one candidate.

To think otherwise is naive and Kremlin won with their strategy and got their man in office. Certainly, the world see that and has seen that with the results afterwards. As the President is very Moscow friendly. That has been seen with time.

What is clear that they dropped this now, while the impeachment process is under way. Certainly, to deflect from the Trump-Ukraine scandal. Peace.

White House Sack-Race Continues: John Bolton Resignation Letter to President Trump (10.09.2019)

White House Sack-Race Continues: Bolton is out

One, twenty-one guns

Lay down your arms

Give up the fight

One, twenty-one guns

Throw up your arms into the sky

One, twenty-one guns

Lay down your arms

Give up the fight

One, twenty-one guns

Throw up your arms into the sky

You and I” – Green Day on “21 Guns” released in 2009 on their 21st Century Breakdown Album.

The sack-race of President Donald J. Trump is insane. The turnover of staff and appointed members of his cabinet is into historic levels. The supposed prestige of getting these roles are dwindling down. As in so many departments, government organizations and such-such are filled with temporary acting individuals, instead of Congress approved personnel. That is because, well, the President cannot be stable or sincere enough to keep the one his gotten approved.

President Trump have today fired the warmonger, the lousy and flimsy character, the Iraqi Jedi, John Bolton from his position as the National Security Advisor. He had this role for 520 days, his predecessors under this administration was taken out much quicker. First was the Gen. Michael Flynn, which only lasted 24 days, the acting NSA Keith Kellogg had 7 days and the one right before Bolton was Gen. H.R. McMaster who lasted until now record-breaking 412 days.

Bolton and McMaster lasted over a year, by a thread, because the trust between them and President wore thin. That is because of the erratic and insane attitude to governing that is residing in the White House. The Banana Republic and the tin-pot acting dictator in the flesh. Who thinks he does it all best, but continues to fail. Therefore, it is easier to fire someone, than actually trying to proper govern.

That is why the White House is looking for its fifth NSA, that since January 2017. Which doesn’t seem to long ago, but is in the mental state of this White House a decade. The way its eats and spits-out personnel. Like men with titles, clearances and ability to grasp the positions they need grow on trees.

President Trump has wasted yet another ally. Another one of the Republican hacks, who was match made in heaven, but ended in a minor moment of hell. Instead of making things better, none of these made an effort to make change. Trump didn’t want advice, and in the end, the warmongering advisor had to get the axe. Because, that is easier than actually doing something profound and meaningful. While being in office.

Trump has wasted yet another man, another White House Official, who was loyal to him. Not that I like the man. I don’t and his legacy is endless war and thinking the bullying of nations will solve things. Is just a messed foreign policy, which will end in someone’s destruction. Right now, it was his. Surely, he can go back to lobbying and earn money from gun- and ammo manufactures, which is friends. So, he can support warfare and be the merchant of death. Which is where Bolton belongs.

I don’t salute the end of Bolton in the White House. However, there is time for them 21 Guns and stop the nonsense. No, NSA will be good enough for Trump. They will differ and like a whiny bitch, he will sack them over nothing. Peace.

Russian Probe: Adam Schiff letter to Michael Flynn’s attorneys (06.09.2019)

Opinion: Trump shouldn’t throw shade at Comey, his guilty of leaking himself!

“I will tell you this — Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing. I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press,” the GOP presidential nominee said at a press conference in Miami” (Rebecca Shabad – ‘Donald Trump: I hope Russia finds Hillary Clinton’s emails’ 27.07.2016, CBS News).

Well, I am just tired of bullshit. It is so much of it. As the OIG report was released on the leaking of the memo’s of the former FBI Director James Comey to the New York Times. However, what is more striking to me, that the OIG isn’t criminalizing it. Is that the President and his White House Team is attacking Comey. While, the President and others has leaked confidential information to Russian associates.

Therefore, the Trump administration should look into its own actions and back-channels towards Kremlin. Because, there is enough phone-calls, no-no meetings at G-20 meeting in Finland and so-on. Also, enough secretive meetings to gather knowledge of the political enemy during the campaign to Presidential Election of 2016.

That is why, Trump shouldn’t throw shade on the one memo Comey leaked parts, which was later classified. This has not been investigated, however, Comey has been and its ended this month. But first show what Trump has done himself. Just a little bit.

Leaking confidential intelligence to Russians:

Vanity Fair reported on Wednesday that a top American spy told Israeli intelligence officials during a meeting at CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia, a few weeks before Trump’s inauguration that US intelligence believed Russian President Vladimir Putin had “leverages of pressure” over Trump” (…) “Trump met with Lavrov and Kislyak in the Oval Office on May 10, the day after he fired James Comey as FBI director. Trump told the Russians that he had “faced great pressure” as a result of the investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 US election — and whether the Trump campaign colluded with Moscow — that Comey was leading, calling him “crazy” and “a real nut job.”” (…) “Trump then reportedly described the broad outlines of the Israeli intelligence and named the Syrian city in which it was gathered” (Eliza Relman – ‘Bombshell report reveals new details about Trump’s Oval Office meeting with Russians after he fired Comey’ 24.11.2017).

Russian smokescreen:

As for the results of Foreign Minister Lavrov’s visit to the United States and his meeting with President Trump, we assess the results highly. This was the first visit, a return visit by our foreign minister, after we received US Secretary of State Tillerson here in Moscow. This is normal and natural international practice. At the same time, however, we see the growing political schizophrenia in the United States. There is no other way I can explain the accusations against the current president that he handed whichever secrets over to Lavrov. Incidentally, I spoke with him [Lavrov] today about this matter, and I will have to give him a ticking off for not sharing these secrets with me. Not with me, nor with our intelligence officials. This was really not good of him at all” (President of Russia – ‘Press statements and answers to journalists’ questions following Russian-Italian talks’ 17.03.2017).

So, when you see these statements. You know something is up. You know that Trump is up to something. This is just a snippet of the connections. Because, there is reasons why there is printed books about the Russian connections with the Trump Campaign. Also, the previous business transactions with Russians too. Therefore, there is no need to add to that. But, when the President Tweet like he does and his White House attack Comey. The White House should also reflect into what they did with leaking intelligence to the Russian themselves in 2017.

Because, this is what OIG said in its report:

At the time, the OIG also was aware of Comey’s June 8, 2017 congressional testimony that he had authorized a friend (who was also one of his personal attorneys) to provide the contents of one of the Memos to a reporter for The New York Times. Upon completing our investigation, we provided our factual findings to the Department for a prosecutorial decision regarding Comey’s conduct. See 5 U.S.C.A. App. 3 § 4(d). After reviewing the matter, the Department declined prosecution” (OIG – ‘Report of Investigation of Former Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey’s Disclosure of Sensitive Investigative Information and Handling of Certain Memoranda’ August 2019).

Therefore, when the President and his White House is continuing their campaign to tarnish Comey. They are clearly not looking to what they did themselves. Because the Memo’s was retroactively turned into classified documents. Comey did act wrong and keep them in counsel wrong, as protocol and status of the documents, which belongs to the FBI as long as your an employee of the agency.

So, Comey is not righteous, but the proof is that he will not be charged for this. Because, there is no case in the first place. If there was one, the FBI and OIG would file one. However, they don’t, but why will not Trump and his White House do the same investigation into their own leakages and secret meetings with Putin. If Trump himself has leaked sensitive classified intelligence to Russians. If so, isn’t that wrong?

This is not even leaking a private memo, before its classified and secret by the FBI. But, Trump heard intelligence and later told it to Russians like nothing. That has gone out of the window. Like a forgotten tale of old-ages. That is why I am so furious about the nonsense of calling Comey a criminal.

When the biggest culprit is already in office and having the executive role of government. That his running around like crazy, calling everyone criminal, while his the biggest one himself and he knows it. But his acting like a saint, but we know otherwise. Peace.
