Russian Probe: Proven collusion between Manafort and Kilimnik [and don’t be shocked, it was bound to come out eventually]

The Trump Campaign of 2016 was a house filled with Russian associates and meeting Russian individuals. They held meetings and people who are connected to Kremlin, Moscow and GRU. There was so many meetings from Trump Associates and leaders within the Trump Campaign. Therefore, the latest news from the U.S. Treasury finally let the cat out of the bag.

They are focusing on Konstantin Kilimnik who was associated and worked close with Paul Manafort and Richard Gates. These two were also parts of the Trump Campaign and Gates was also a part of the Trump Transition Team into the White House in 2016. This is why this news is important.

First I will drop the news from the U.S. Treasury. Second is some more context from U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee Report from 2020 and the third is the charges put on Manafort in 2018. This is just to prove the close connection between the fellas.

U.S. Treasury charges 2021:

Konstantin Kilimnik (Kilimnik) is a Russian and Ukrainian political consultant and known Russian Intelligence Services agent implementing influence operations on their behalf. During the 2016 U.S. presidential election campaign, Kilimnik provided the Russian Intelligence Services with sensitive information on polling and campaign strategy. Additionally, Kilimnik sought to promote the narrative that Ukraine, not Russia, had interfered in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. In 2018, Kilimnik was indicted on charges of obstruction of justice and conspiracy to obstruct justice regarding unregistered lobbying work. Kilimnik has also sought to assist designated former President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych. At Yanukovych’s direction, Kilimnik sought to institute a plan that would return Yanukovych to power in Ukraine” (U.S. Treasury – ‘Treasury Escalates Sanctions Against the Russian Government’s Attempts to Influence U.S. Elections’ 15.04.2021).

U.S. Committee Russia Probe Report oversight into Manafort:

Paul Manafort is a former lobbyist and political consultant with ties to numerous foreign politicians and businessmen, most notably in Russia and Ukraine. In March 2016, Manafort joined the Trump Campaign as convention manager. By May 2016, then-Candidate Trump officially elevated Manafort to be the Campaign’s chairman and chief strategist. On August 19, 2016, following press articles related to his past-work in Ukraine for a pro-Russia political party headed by former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, Manafort resigned from the Trump Campaign” (…) “In numerous occasions over the course of his time on the Trump Campaign, Manafort sought to secretly share internal Campaign information with Kilimnik. Gates, who served as Manafort’ s deputy on the Campaign, aided Manafort in this effort. Manafort communicated electronically with Kilimnik and met Kilimnik in person twice while serving on the Trump Campaign. Manafort briefed Kilimnik on sensitive Campaign polling data and the Campaign’s strategy for beating Hiliary Clinton. At Manafort’s direction, Gates used an encrypted messaging application to send additional Campaign polling data to Kilimnik” (U.S. Senate Select Intelligence Report on Russian Interference in the 2016 Elections, August 2020)

Charges and Connection with Kiliminik:

““In furtherance of the scheme, from 2006 until 2014, both dates being approximate and inclusive, MANAFORT, with the assistance of Gates, KILIMNIK, and others, engaged in a multimillion dollar lobbying campaign in the United States at the direction of Yanukovych, the Party of Regions, and the Government of Ukraine. MANAFORT did so without registering and providing the disclosures required by law” (2018).

The U.S. Treasury is stating in the collusion between the Trump Campaign and Ukraine/Russian partners. As Kilimnik is in connection with Kremlin. He had worked with the Russian Friendly Political Parties in Kiev and also been supported of Moscow friendly President in the past. Therefore, giving him intel and documents of sensitive nature. This is now the reasons for why the U.S. sanctioned Russian for interference in their elections.

The reason why it’s coming out now? Well, there is no “executive privilege” anymore and ex-President Trump cannot stonewall the process or interfere in the investigation. While he and his allies did withhold documents and didn’t want to testify even. This is why the U.S. Special Counsel or Intelligence Committee could get all information of the actions made in time. As the President or his allies was interested in giving it. They tried to block or make it impossible to get to the bottom of it.

Now, there will be drip-drops of information on this. As the U.S. Treasury and other agencies might uncover more of the heinous crimes. The Trump Campaign and such never did vet Paul Manafort, but appointed him still as the Campaign Chairman. He become the second one after Cory Lewandowski. Clearly, Manafort found ways to be useful, but also profit from his time there. That he could by the connections he had in Kiev and Moscow. Which he had earned millions of dollars on in the past.

Manafort clearly helped and used this time for this and withheld this communications from the authorities. Just like he had held it a secret and not been registered as a Foreign Agent for them previously either. He clearly was interested in doing this and finds way to still make money out of it.

Manafort is pardoned by Trump, but the extent and what sort of pardon doesn’t stop new prosecution of him or new charges. They maybe taken on state level instead of federally and then he can be sentenced again. Because, he has already been a felon and could be severely punished this time around for collusion and conspiring with an enemy. That would be a serious charge and could face a long time in prison.

People cannot say that the Russian thing is a hoax, when all the evidence is there and the proof is official. The U.S. Treasury, one arm of the government is stating it and Kilimnik worked directly with Manafort. Peace.

Russian Probe: If your innocent why pardoning the team?

President Donald J. Trump granted 15 individuals pardons yesterday. This is a clemency from Federal Prosecution and crimes. However, the President doesn’t have powers to circumvent state prosecution or investigations into people. Therefore, the limit is still there.

There is speculation about how these pardons was done… but most likely he traded the cards with several of donors and gave way to some, as they are his team and he doesn’t want them to rat him out after his time in office.

However, when your pardoning people like George Papadopoulos and Alexander Van Der Zwaan. These are not the most prolific people in the Trump Campaign Team of 2016. These was implicated in the collusion with Russia. The supposed “hoax” the President that has called it. Dismissed the Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the whole investigation. Where the President have blocked all witnesses and Congress investigation into it. They have made it impossible to dig into the truth.

These two was part of the Trump Team and they lied, they obstructed justice and the Trump Campaign even said their works was unimportant at one time. I remember Papadopoulos was called a “coffee boy” and a man serving coffee shouldn’t need a pardon. He should instead get some cream to make the coffee tolerable for more people.

So, if these people was innocent. Then they wouldn’t need to get pardoned, but appeal their cases and get it thrown out of courts. Just like all the election petitions in 2020. The Trump Campaign only shows that the US is broken system. Where the crooks can work together and if one of them get into office. The man in-charge can bail them out of the legal jeopardy they got into.

That these two are getting off the hook. Just shows what Trump intends to do. He has already helped his long term ally Roger Stone. There will be others who gets the help of the President. Especially now in the final days of his reign. This man will give clemency to the ones who was loyal to him. We can expect others being picked out and getting pardons. This being Paul Manafort or several others who was indicted. The man has already saved Gen. Michael Flynn. So, there is no reason for him to not save the whole gang.

What we can learn from this? Well, that foreign interference and working with foreigners in an election is cool if your Republican and Trump. However, the GOP and Trump Stans will die on this hill. We cannot expect anything else by people who eating the words of Newsmax, OAN and Fox News. Even Qanon is their voices of reason and that is Cult45 all over it. These folks will not care that the American Republic is traded for gold and licenses deals by their dear leader. No, they are following Trump blindly. So, that he worked with Russia to win is fine. The ones who are against communists and the reds, but can get help from Moscow. The ironies are so enriching from the outside.

Presidency of Trump has achieved a lot. There is a lot of damages to cover and fix for the administration. That the Department of Justice have been weaponized and therefore the up-coming investigations needs to be partisan and independent. There is a need see it and what to expect.

Trump clearly is a crony capitalist and a man who easily get corrupted. That is why he needs others to cover-up for him. Trump needs his allies, especially after he lost all his leverage of office. The Donald needs his former team to be on his side. As there are investigations into him and his businesses. He will be in court and these cases will be moved further. His executive privilege will be history. Therefore, he doesn’t need Papadopoulos and Van Der Zwaan has to be on his side. So, they will not tell more on him or expose him more. The man cannot afford that. Well, the man isn’t paying taxes. So, there is not that much he really can afford. The man has everything to loose and that’s why his few allies are bailed out and getting clemency. Though by doing that. He shows that the Trump Campaign was far from innocent. Because, if they needed pardons then they weren’t innocent at all. Peace.

Opinion: If you need a pardon, aren’t you guilty?

There are now reports in the news that President Donald J. Trump plans to pardon his inner-family and the “extended one” as his leaving office in January 2021. These pardons might be given to his sons Eric Trump, Donald Trump Junior and his daughter Ivanka Trump. His also planning to give a pardon to his son-in-law Jared Kushner.

The President has already given the extended powers within his office to former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. Therefore, he can easily extend to others who has breached federal laws and clauses in office. There is several others that might be on the way. As there was plenty of associates who was a part of Trump Campaign 2016, which has been charged by the state for breaking the law. These could easily get pardons by the President too.

It would be easy to speculate that these gentlement might get a Presidential Pardon: Paul Manafort, Richard Gates, Stephen Bannon, Jeff Sessions, Carter Page, George Papadopolous, Roger Stone, Alexander Van Der Zwaan and Richard Pinedo. Nevertheless, his former personal lawyer who betrayed him. Michael Cohen will not be off the hook. However, the ones who has done his bidding. They might get off the hook and get a Presidential Pardon while he still can. That is anticipated, especially after the pardoning of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.  

The big gist here… if these people needs a pardon. Then they are admitting guilt. Flynn already stated that he lied and that he didn’t file as a foreign agent. Lt. Gen. Flynn was getting paid by Turkey and not filing the necessary papers to be officially so. Therefore, he coordinated with a foreign power without informing the state. This is why a man like that shouldn’t become a National Security Advisor for the President in the first place. 

This is why this here shows a pattern and what the Trump Presidency has done. The Office of the President and the White House. A White House that started with “lock her up” is now planning to “pardon my own kin and associates”. That is a real change of guard.

The Presidential Pardon gives clemency from Federal Prosecution, but cannot be invoked for state investigations or local investigations. Meaning, the Southern District of New York and the Attorney General of New York (Manhattan) can still prosecute and indict the Trump family members. All the other state attorneys and law enforcement can investigate the persons in question and charge them eventually for crimes. Therefore, the limitations of the pardon sets a standard for the future. 

However, if the President gives these pardons to his family and inner-circle. The people who are receiving it is initially stating their guilt. That they did some crime(s) and criminal conspiracy of some kind. If they didn’t, why did they need a pardon in the first place?

If you are innocent and has nothing to hide. Then you don’t need a pardon. If your not a criminal or haven’t acted with criminal intent. Then there should be no reason to accept a pardon. Since, there is no reason for you to have it.

This is what should shatter the United States. The Trump Family and associates can go free. The peculiar thing will be how they portray it and the reasoning for accepting it. Since it sends a message that they know what they did and that they hope they can get away from possible prosecution.

A pardon is something you need if you have done the deed. If you need the clemency from a criminal charge, then your by default a felon. Which is lucky to be saved by the mercy of the ones offering the pardon and cleaning your criminal record. However, if you don’t have done a crime and haven’t had criminal intent. There shouldn’t be a need for one….

So, by default by giving this to his family and associates. It is a token and showing the world how they operated. Since, they all need a pardon to save themselves. A guilty plea by direct action of accepting the pardon. Initially stating their guilt for the world to see. 

The ironic part is that the Presidential Pardon might not even save them. As the family members and associates might have to answer for crimes on the state level. This shows that there is little to gain here other than proving guilt by association. Peace.

Opinion: Bannon is in a long line of Trump associates caught by the law…

Today, there are yet another lackey of President Donald Trump. His campaign team and his near associates. The incumbent President has clearly been around people who are having no trouble breaking the law and bending towards the illegal dens of the world.

The Trump Campaign of 2016 was filled with these and several has already served time. They have also gotten lenient treatment, which others wouldn’t have gotten in the same position. As the Department of Justice worked directly to help the associates of the President. Friends gets favoured and get good “deals” for their loyalty to the President.

So we have seen a dozens of criminal cases and the Southern District of New York (SDNY) is working on several. Today they have charged the last of the three Campaign Managers in the 2016 elections, Stephen Bannon for wire-fraud and other illegal activity. This just show how brazen these people are.

However, it is not only Bannon in the near association of Trump whose been arrested. These are Roger Stone, Paul Manafort, Gen. Michael Flynn, George Papadopolous, Richard Gates, Alex Van Der Zwaan and Michael Cohen. It’s like a collective of people willingly doing destructive things.

Sooner or later, the SDNY might find charges or activities against Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner and others too. Who has used the Trump Organization, Trump Campaign and other ventures to scheme, deal and earn illicit profits during the term of the Presidency and during the campaigns. That wouldn’t be shocking. As everyone around the President is corrupted and using their offices for ill gotten gains. While hoping for a pardon in the moment they do get caught.

That Bannon is charged isn’t shocking anymore. I am just shocked that Corey Lewandowski isn’t charged with something. That Kellyanne Conway isn’t answer for her breaches of the law in Office. That others who has cheated and misused their office during this term haven’t gotten charged or indicted too.

Who knows what Felix Sater and his associates has done with Trump and his organization. Because, he lived in the Trump Tower and there speculations of money laundering operations. Which is still unverified and only speculated about. So, there might be more to the stories through the years.

We clearly, see that the failure of a New York businessman connection with questionable people. His business is known for playing and forging the numbers. Who knows at what scale and what the SDNY investigations finds out. As well, as what they find in the dissolved Trump Foundation. Who else is guilty for crimes and to what extent. Because, there been so many ways the President and his men has been cheating, tricking and misusing his office. Just like he misused his business for profit too.

Therefore, don’t be shocked if more people are falling now that Bannon is indicted. There will be more people in the sphere of Trump that will be hit. It is just a matter of time. Because, these crimes will not be kept a secret forever and the investigations will surface too. After all these years. The reality will come.

We should not be shocked that people around Trump are frauds, stealing and lying. We should be shocked if they didn’t do that. The President does it and the people around him too. Trump is a con-man and the people around him is the same. That is why the law enforcement is indicting them, one-by-one. Today it was Bannon, earlier it was the others. We don’t know who is next, but don’t be shocked if someone in association with Trump get indicted. That is the norm and it continues to be so. Peace.

Opinion: The axing of Berman is following a pattern

The Attorney General of Southern District of New York, the President Trump appointee, Geoffrey Berman was ousted, axed or sacked by the White House yesterday. The AG of SDNY is under fire for the simple reason the SDNY is investigating associates of the President. So, the President has waited for the right time to cancel that.

It is not the first time the President is obstructing justice. He has weaponized the Attorney General with William Barr. He has changed the leadership in the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and in the Department of Justice (DoJ). This has always been in association with people connected to the President and their actions. It is like the President want to exonerate his people for doing illegal things, but pin the same crimes on his enemies. Just like a tin-pot dictator does.

That is why the President is now going after Berman. He has dared to challenge and look into Trump associates in New York. There been connections to the mob with the Trump Organization, there been actual gangsters living in the Trump Tower. So, its not like a forged narrative to think his associated with mobsters and people who criminally conspire for personal gains. That is a very connection to do and the massive scams made by his organization as well. Is just another step in the manner, which the President has behaved in the past and that wouldn’t change over night.

With that in mind, the idea that the President wouldn’t change an Attorney General isn’t new either. His on his third Attorney General with Barr alone. The first one, Jeff Sessions dared to recuse himself from one investigation into the Trump Campaign and their foreign associates. This displeased His Excellency and so later on he sacked him. Just like he did to plenty of others.

Just like the DoJ have used their means to make the associates of Trump get lenient sentences and career professionals with the DoJ has resigned over this. Therefore, the idea that independence of the DoJ with Trump is naive thought now. After all it has done to deplete and ensure safeguarding for the men around him. Even if they are breaching laws, corrupting the system and ensuring riches on behalf of the state reserves. That is just like an dictator does, the brotherhood Trump wants to join and be part of.

I am shocked that Trump tried to get Berman fired? No, I expect that by now. Everything that is in and around is corrupted. The way not to show or expose the corruption is to actually block it, stop it or shut it down. Trump wants it stop looking into his allies and associates. Even if they are doing illegal activity.

Only thing matters for Trump is to exonerate his men, nothing else. Others can be charged and punished. Even shoot innocent demonstrators, but if your are friend doing illegal activity you are allowed to do so. That is why his on the war-path in concern of this. He wants to ensure his men safety for their loyalty to him. That matters more than actual justice. The “Law and Order” President is far from that, his the disorder president and the Mafioso President.

He wants to be the Don so badly, that his trying to mimic Michael Corleone, but only becoming a pompous and bourgeoisie fellow who cannot even drink water properly. He wants to be bad-ass so hard, but his weak-tea. Yes, his men is acting criminal and corrupt, but that is not a sign of strength. It is all sign of weakness, because the President is doing this to get his men into safety. Also, what part of the Trump Organization or whatever else they been looking into. He wants that gone and doesn’t want it looked into.

Berman is the target for the simple reason: He aimed at king and he didn’t miss. SDNY is looking into a man who doesn’t want to be transparent, because he has everything to loose. That is why he has never released his tax-returns. His a frightened man who wants to silence the ones whose looking into him and his associates.

The fake Mafioso is here and he enjoys it with his New York Gang. He maybe have moved to Florida on paper, but his businesses and family is in New York. Peace.

Trump-Ukraine: Articles of Impeachment and will the Senate backstab the President?

There was just a matter of time, as the House of Representatives and the majority Committees would collectively go together and make a resolution to vote over the Impeachment of President Donald J. Trump. This after his own actions in office, as the Head of State and the Executive of State.

He is trying to deflect the facts and call it names, but reality is this. The President tried together with all of his handlers to get dirt and shade his political opponent Joe Biden, by making a fraudulent agreement with Ukrainian counterparts and if it didn’t get followed the military aid didn’t come their way.

The Articles against the President is very simple, but straight to the fact. That the President did misuse power or abuse it. He tried to get a foreign power to interfere in the elections of 2020. To investigate the son of Biden. That is what the President did. That is abuse of power and misuse of power in office, using the aid of the state to get a favourable case abroad.

The Second article is the obstruction of Congress. Which at this point is fact. As his administration haven’t answered any of the subpoenas nor calls to testify of people associated with President. Even the ones who been fired has not testified. Family members of the President has also declined to answer the subpoenas and answer the committees.

That has been done by withholding documents or production of it. Defying all subpoenas and refused to produce a single document or record. Directing the Executive Branch not to cooperate nor defying to testify. There are nine persons who have not cooperated from the Executive Branch alone.

While the President has decided that he should decide the scope, the levels of inquire and ability to investigate him. That he has the “executive privilege” and the “sole Power of Impeachment”. With the stopping of documents, lack of cooperation is all a proof the obstruction of justice. As the Congress couldn’t prevail or even manage to get everything. Since, the Executive Branch has been so reluctant to do their duty.

Trump has clearly not followed the memo or should we at this point call his Constitutional rights as a citizen and as a President. He has done whatever he can shelve and stop the Congress from questioning him and his team. While having yes men, whose also involved in the shady business of the President, the likes of Devin Nunes. Who just have an ability to be with the characters of the Executive Branch and ilk who deter to breach the law. That is why the President needs to be tried and answer for his action.

There are several around Rudy Giuliani the attorney of the President whose entangled and in trouble over the same Ukraine Scandal. Which is showing the remorse and the reality on the ground. As the White House is spreading all sort of fiction to pass. Hoping all these conspiracy theories will stick.

While this will most likely pass in the House of Representatives, it will be blocked and silenced in the Senate. As the Republicans cannot go against their master, the likes of Lindsay Graham is unbound in his loyalty to the kingpin on top. His whole fate and life depends on the Donald. That is how it seems.

We will see if the crook will win or not. The House have done their part. They have been able, even in the hardest of hurdles to make a report. To prove what Trump in regards to Ukraine. Now it is just a matter of time. What results it will give and how it will sway the public opinion.

The articles are well-crafted, just like the majority report shows the intent and the essence of the whole ordeal. It is just is if the Senate will betray the Constitution or if they will stab Donald in the back. Which I doubt, because at this point. None of the GOP or Republican Senators seems interested in walking over trouble waters without kissing the ring of Trump. Peace.
