Never Relent – Why Did The DOJ Release SSCI Vice-Chairman Mark Warner’s Text Messages on February 9, 2018?…
CONSERVATIVE TREEHOUSE ^ | 7/9/2020 | SUNDANCE

Posted on 07/10/2020 10:10:06 PM PDT by bitt

Everything is disconnected until somebody connects it.

On February 9, 2018, the DOJ released a batch of captured text messages between Senate Intelligence Committee Vice-Chairman Mark Warner and the lawyer for Christopher Steele, Adam Waldman.

At the time the texts were released the media narrative surrounded the top-line story that Senator Warner was having back channel discussions to communicate with the author of the now famous Trump dossier, Chris Steele. However, no-one seemed to wonder why these messages were captured, and even more curiously why they were released.

Immediately following the release, SSCI member Marco Rubio, the current acting chairman of the same committee, rushed to defend the covert communication of Vice-Chair Warner. According to Rubio the vice-chair did previously inform the committee of his intent to contact Steele. The media quickly used Rubio’s defense to dismiss the controversy. Nothing to see here… nothing to see here… and that was that.

Except it wasn’t.

Not even close.

While the issue may have quickly been downplayed by a water-carrying media, the looming question sat in the corner of the room like an unattended 800lb gorilla.

Why were Senator Warner’s text messages even captured in the first place?

Who captured them?

The media is the only one carrying the water, so is Micro Rubio.

FEBRUARY 9, 2018 : (TRUMP TWEET ABOUT DEMOCRAT SENATOR MARK WARNER’S CONTACT WITH A LOBBYIST FOR A RUSSIAN OLIGARCH —— See CHRISTOPHER STEELE, STEELE DOSSIER, HILLARY CLINTON)
Donald J. Trump
Verified account @realDonaldTrump 13h13 hours ago
Wow! -Senator Mark Warner got caught having extensive contact with a lobbyist for a Russian oligarch. Warner did not want a “paper trail” on a “private” meeting (in London) he requested with Steele of fraudulent Dossier fame. All tied into Crooked Hillary.

This guy that Warner was connecting with, the American middleman to Deripaska...was Adam Waldman.
What the Washington Times says....Waldman was being paid $40,000 a month, to represent the Russian.
The curious thing is that Waldman was considered an insider to the Clinton Foundation.

Seems the ‘connection’ was primarily with the firm - from story and link below:
BREAKING: Senate Intel Committee Democrat Busted Texting Russian Oligarch!
http://redstatewatcher.com/article.asp?id=116751
“We have so much to discuss u need to be careful but we can help our country,” Warner texted the lobbyist, Adam Waldman, on March 22, 2017.
“I’m in,” Waldman, whose firm has ties to Hillary Clinton, texted back to Warner.”

Was Warner illegally helping Watkins of the NY Times to get a document she already got from illegally leaked congressional committee sources, the head of Security, Wolf?

Was Warner having an affair with Watkins as well?

All this points to many criminal law violations that would negate Warner’s congressional immunity. Time to put him under oat before a decent Senate investigating committee, if one actually exists, and grill the crap out of him until this little pansy talks.

Why do we continue to allow this Fake Government continue to exist? They no more represent us than an elephant can mate with a donkey. Pun intended. The only one getting screwed is us. We are treated like the town who’re who specializes in BOHICA.

Sed libera nos a malo.

With very, very few exceptions the entire Republican contingent has been radio-silent on just about every issue out there. No commentary on illegal vote harvesting, police funding, DACA, etc. It seems that they think the election is in the bag (one way or the other) and they are satisfied with the results.

Little Marco is the tool of the Fanjuel Family. Owners of Big sugar in Florida.
Big sugar is one of Florida’s biggest polluters and Little Marco covers for them. Huge federal subsidies and protection from EPA.
Marco is horse crap.

this whole mess is in the process of being swept into a corner-basically the job of any “special prosecutor”

Good Point. I think some things have been done but it is frustrating to wait. If nothing ever happens, we have no recourse.
