President John F. Kennedy said, "Victory has a thousand fathers, but defeat is an orphan" one could say that the Russia scandal has a thousand fathers and truth is an orphan. The investigation into collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia is beginning to look like a Russian nesting doll and when the last doll is opened there will be nothing there. But that does not stop the Deep State witch hunt against Donald Trump. The latest revelation to rear its ugly head is a research firm called Fusion GPS. Fusion GPS helped prepare the fake Russian dossier. From the Wall Street Journal:
Who Paid for the ‘Trump Dossier’?
It has been 10 days since Democrats received the glorious news that Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley would require Donald Trump Jr. and Paul Manafort to explain their meeting with Russian operators at Trump Tower last year. The left was salivating at the prospect of watching two Trump insiders being grilled about Russian “collusion” under the klieg lights.
Yet Democrats now have meekly and noiselessly retreated, agreeing to let both men speak to the committee in private. Why would they so suddenly be willing to let go of this moment of political opportunity?
Fusion GPS. That’s the oppo-research outfit behind the infamous and discredited “Trump dossier,” ginned up by a former British spook. Fusion co-founder Glenn Simpson also was supposed to testify at the Grassley hearing, where he might have been asked in public to reveal who hired him to put together the hit job on Mr. Trump, which was based largely on anonymous Russian sources. Turns out Democrats are willing to give up just about anything—including their Manafort moment—to protect Mr. Simpson from having to answer that question…
Mr. Grassley’s call for testimony has uncovered more such stories… William Browder, a banker who has worked to expose Mr. Putin’s crimes, testified to the Grassley committee on Thursday that he was the target of a similar campaign, saying that Fusion “spread false information” about him and his efforts. Fusion has admitted it was hired by a law firm representing a Russian company called Prevezon…
We know that at the exact time Fusion was working with the Russians, the firm had also hired a former British spy, Christopher Steele, to dig up dirt on Mr. Trump. Mr. Steele compiled his material, according to his memos, based on allegations from unnamed Kremlin insiders and other Russians.
We know that Mr. Simpson is tight with Democrats. His current attorney, Joshua Levy, used to work in Congress as counsel to no less than Chuck Schumer. We know from a Grassley letter that Fusion has in the past sheltered its clients’ true identities by filtering money through law firms or shell companies (Bean LLC and Kernel LLC).
Word is Mr. Simpson has made clear he will appear for a voluntary committee interview only if he is not specifically asked who hired him to dig dirt on Mr. Trump. Democrats are going to the mat for him over that demand. Those on the Judiciary Committee pointedly did not sign letters in which Mr. Grassley demanded that Fusion reveal who hired it…
If Special Counsel Robert Mueller, Democrats and the media really want answers about Russian meddling, this is a far deeper well than the so-far scant case against Mr. Trump. If they refuse to dive into the story, we’ll know that the truth about Russia and the election was never what they were after.
This is interesting, the Democrats’ Russian based propaganda creator, Glenn Simpson is in a pissing match with the Republicans’ Russian based propaganda liar, William Browder. From Stephen Lendman:
Fraudster Lies to Congress About Russia
Hedge fund manager Bill Browder once ran one of the largest investment firms in Russia.
His Hermitage Capital Management Fund was forced to cease operations in the country because of judicial action against him in London, along with legal proceedings, convicting in absentia of massive tax evasion in Moscow. After operating in the country since 2006, Russian authorities blacklisted him last year as a “threat to national security.”
Initially a Putin supporter, he turned hostile over what happened, becoming a strong critic, spreading disinformation and Big Lies about the country and its leader. In media and other public appearances, he relentlessly calls for tough sanctions on Russia, claiming the Kremlin wants to kill him, a fabricated accusation like all others about Russia.
He’s a unlikely figure in witch-hunt investigations into nonexistent Russian US election hacking.
In prepared testimony last week before Senate Judiciary Committee members, he lied claiming Putin extorted large sums from Russian oligarchs, becoming “the richest man in the world” worth around “$200 billion (from) ill-gotten gains,” a fabricated charge, wanting revenge for revelations about his own criminal activities.
Browder: “There are approximately 10,000 officials in Russia working for Putin who are given instructions to kill, torture, kidnap, extort money from people and seize their property.” “(Putin) keeps his money in the West and all of his money…is potentially exposed to asset freezes and confiscation.”
Fact: Browder presented no evidence backing his claims. None exists, his accusations as baseless as “Russian aggression” and US election hacking. Claiming he’s campaigning for justice and exposure of corruption conceals his real agenda, serving his own interests by irresponsibly spreading disinformation and Big Lies about Russia and Putin.
“I’ve received many death threats from Russia,” he blustered, claiming the “most notableone came from Prime Minster Dmitry Medvedev. Russia wants him held accountable for involvement in massive tax fraud. He’s a fraudster like numerous Wall Street operatives, protected by US authorities because of his vocal Russia bashing, serving as a reliable imperial agent.
What a circle jerk. Both of these liars are agents of the Deep State paid by the Deep State to manufacture lies about Russia. Don’t take my word for take Seymour Hersh’s. From Global Research:
Breaking: Seymour Hersh Cracks ‘RussiaGate’ as CIA-Planted Lie, Revenge Against Trump
During the later portion of a phone-call, by the world’s greatest investigative journalist, Seymour Hersh, Hersh has now presented “a narrative [from his investigation] of how that whole f**king thing began,” including who actually is behind the ‘RussiaGate’ lies, and of why they are spreading these lies…
...the charges that Russia had anything to do with the leaks from the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign to Wikileaks, that those charges spread by the press, were a CIA-planted lie, and that what Wikileaks had gotten was only leaks (including at least from the murdered DNC-staffer Seth Rich), and were not from any outsider (including ’the Russians’)
This is according to the FBI report. What they find is, first of all you have to know some basic facts, one of the basic facts is there is no DNC or protected email that exists beyond May 22nd, the last email from either one of those groups. So, what the report says, is:
(2:50-) At some time in late spring, which we’re talking about in June 21st, I don’t know, just late spring early summer, he makes contact with Wikileaks… They found, what he had done, he [Seth Rich] had submitted a series of documents, emails from DNC — and, by the way, all this shit about the DNC, you know, was it a ‘hack’ or wasn’t it a ‘hack’ — whatever happened, it was the Democrats themselves wrote this shit, you know what I mean?
All I know is that, he offered a sample, he sends a sample, you know, I am sure dozens of emails, and said ‘I want money’. Later Wikileaks did get the password [SETH RICH DID SELL WIKILEAKS ACCESS INTO HIS COMPUTER.] He had a drop-box, a [password-]protected drop-box, which isn’t hard to do. I mean you don’t have to be a whiz at IT [information technology], he was not a dumb kid. They got access to the drop-box. This is all from the FBI report.
He also let people know with whom he was dealing… according to the FBI report, he shared his box with a couple of friends, so ‘If anything happens to me, it’s not going to solve your problem’, okay? I don’t know what that means. But, anyway, Wikileaks got access. And, before he was killed, I can tell you right now, [Obama’s CIA Director John] Brennan’s an asshole.
I’ve known all these people for years, Clapper is sort of a better guy but no rocket-scientist, the NSA guys are fuckin’ morons, and the trouble with all those guys is, the only way they’ll get hired by SAIC, is if they’ll deliver some [government] contracts, it’s the only reason they stayed in. With Trump, they’re gone, they’re going to live on their pension, they’re not going to make it [to great wealth]. I’ve gotta to tell you, guys in that job, they don’t want to live on their pension. They want to be on [corporate] boards like their [mumble] thousand bucks [cut]…
It’s a Brennan operation. It was an American disinformation, and the fucking President, at one point when they even started telling the press — they were back[ground]-briefing the press, the head of the NSA was going and telling the press, the fucking cocksucker Rogers, telling the press that we [they] even know who in the Russian military intelligence service leaked it. All bullshit.
They were telling. I worked at the New York Times those fucking years, they’re smart guys, but they’re totally beholden on [to] sources. If the President or the head of the CIA tells them something, they actually believe it. I retired at the Times at the end of the Vietnam War 1972, because they were just locked-in. So that’s what the Times is, these guys run the fuckin’ Times, and Trump’s not wrong, I wish he would calm down, get a better press secretary, you know, not be so — Trump’s not wrong to think they all fucking lied about him.
So in the Spring of 2016 the FBI knows that the Russia-gate story is a lie planted by Brennan’s CIA and who was the Director of the FBI? Why none other than James Comey. And remember, according to the Washington Post: “Fired FBI Director James B. Comey orchestrated the leak of details from memos of his conversations with President Trump, he admitted to Congress on Thursday, saying he had hoped it would spur the Justice Department to announce an independent prosecutor to probe the Trump operation.”
So Mueller knows that the Russia collusion charges are CIA lies begun by Director Brennan and Mueller knows because his buddy James Comey leaked his memos of his private conversations with Trump in order to ensure Mueller will be named Special Prosecutor. Comey’s actions were on behalf of the Deep State. This is the real story. And guess what The Hill is reporting, just as Seymour Hersh’s explosive Exposé broke.
Mueller impanels grand jury in Russia probe: report
Special counsel Robert Mueller has reportedly impaneled a grand jury in Washington as part of the ongoing investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday. Such a move would signal that the investigation is growing and entering a new phase. The special counsel is looking into Russia's efforts to influence the election and any ties between President Trump's campaign and Moscow…
The grand jury, located in Washington, D.C., follows a separate grand jury previously convened in Alexandria, Va., by federal prosecutors investigating former national security adviser Michael Flynn. “Former FBI Director Jim Comey said three times the president is not under investigation and we have no reason to believe that has changed,” said White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders when asked about the grand jury.
The news follows efforts from some in Congress to protect Mueller from Trump and his administration’s ability to fire him.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Cory Booker (D-N.J.) introduced a bill on Monday that would require the Justice Department to seek a request from a federal judge before firing Mueller or any other special counsel…
"Our bill allows judicial review of any decision to terminate a special counsel to make sure it’s done for the reasons cited in the regulation rather than political motivation. I think this will serve the country well," Graham said in a statement. Booker added that special counsel should never be subjected to "interference or intimidation because of where an investigation takes them…"
Trump has ratcheted up attacks on Mueller as the investigation proceeds. In an interview with The New York Times in July, Trump warned Mueller against investigating his family’s finances. “I think that’s a violation. Look, this is about Russia,” Trump told The Times.
Trump also argued that Mueller has hired “Hillary Clinton supporters” and is good friends with Comey, who Trump fired in early May. Comey had been leading the FBI investigation into Russian election interference and Trump campaign ties with Moscow before Mueller.
“Well he’s very, very good friends with Comey. Which is very bothersome,” Trump told Fox News. “We’re going to have to see. But there has been no obstruction, there has been no collusion. There has been leaking by Comey. And virtually everyone agrees on that.
“The people who have been hired are all Hillary Clinton supporters,” he said. “Some of them worked for Hillary Clinton. I mean, the whole thing is ridiculous if you want to know the truth from that standpoint."
The Russia collusion is a faux witch hunt with a thousand fathers, while the truth is orphaned by our Deep State intelligence agencies. Now they have convened a Kangaroo Court to put lipstick on the pig. We will stand with our president against the corrupt Deep State so bring it on, the Truth shall overcome.
