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.
It is amazing that we are in October 2019, three years in the Presidency of Donald J. Trump and this is still a recurring thing. The thing is that there are investigations going on, in association with the Trump Organization in the state of New York. Which the Attorney General for the Southern District of New York (SDNY) have subpoenaed the Marzars USA Limited, the accounting firm for the Trump Organization.
Today, the United States District Judge Victor Marreno dismissed the claim of uniqueness and said the SDNY Attorney General could get 8 years of IRS Tax Returns concerning Trump and his business. However, his team has since then filed an new briefing order and therefore ended up with an “stay order”. Where the case will be filed and will get new scheduled dates, as the subpoena is still not valid. Even if it was one once in the system.
This is really what the President is doing. Mr. Transparency, Mr I am not Corrupt. Mr. I am a stable genius. Sorry, brother, the filing of the judge was reasonable in his judgement. That no President preside over the law and that a president can be investigated. Just like Bill Clinton could be investigated, and Richard Nixon. Both of them was subpoenaed and had to deliver documentation of their impeachment hearings and so-on.
Still, Trump thinks his above that. Richard Nixon even stated: “He concedes that he, like every other citizen, is under a legal duty to produce relevant, non-privileged evidence when called upon to do so”. So, when one crooked President like Nixon could do it. Than, the current one should have the ability to do it also. Especially, since this is the tax-returns. This is not some nuclear codes, some sensitive secret protocol only seen by a few mystique people at area 51 in 1960s before Project Manhattan. No, this is the documentation that assess the financial structure and the possible assets, which the state and federal authorities are taxing President Trump. This isn’t an document of science-fiction nor Scientology. Therefore, the man should be able to release it. That is if, if he has nothing to cover. But by the day, it seems more and more likely his covering a lot.
We have been waiting for the IRS Tax Returns of this man since before he was the Republican Party Nominee and before he was sworn-in President. The candidates in that race put it out and got the scrutiny. The looked through and found investments, estates and questionable enterprises, if there was any. But the President and the one in-charge now. Has kept this to his chest.
First off, his must be really poor. Not only morally, but out of pocket. His bankrupt. That is why his spending all the days of his Presidency or most part of it, on his estates boosting his business. If not using foreign assets and foreign diplomacy to further his business with trademarks and opportunities while being in office. This doesn’t seem to be a business booming, when it has to this way.
Secondly, when he needed again to postpone it and stop the ruling today. It just shows, that his stalling out of time and hoping for another verdict in another court. In that regard, the judge today put it brilliantly: “A synthesis of Burr, Nixon, Fitzgerald, and Clinton suggest that the Supreme Court would reject interpretation and application of presidential powers and functions that would “sustain an absolute, unqualified Presidential privilege of immunity from judicial process under all circumstances”.
We know that Trump and his team thinks they are above the law. Even there is no specification or stipulation, or even a code, which says so. Therefore, what has been done today. Is just another injunction in the road of releasing it, eventually.
This just shows again. That his hiding something. If not, he would have released before even running for President. Apparently, there is a lot of skeletons in the closet and he don’t want those bogeymen to hit the streets. Peace.
