  • Durham’s Investigation: Incriminating Inference in the FBI’s Empty Russiagate Predication

    American Greatness ^ | January 10, 2022 | John D. O'Connor
    The vaporous predication for the FBI’s opening of its “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation of “Russian collusion” is often attributed solely to anti-Trump bias, with no more to learn from its study. But sustained examination shows it to be not only pretextual but also designed to conceal American history’s most insidious governmental treachery since Benedict Arnold. According to the FBI, the “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation was opened on July 31, 2016, because lowly Trump aide George Papadopoulos had been told by one Professor Joseph Mifsud that Russia had emails harmful to Hillary Clinton. Two weeks later, Australian (FFG) diplomat, British-connected Alexander Downer, pried...

    John Durham pushed back on Michael Sussmann’s claims that former FBI General Counsel James Baker undermined the special counsel’s false statements indictment against the Democratic lawyer, contending evidence from five government employees, including Baker, supports the charge.The indictment against Sussmann centers on a Sept. 19, 2016, meeting between him and Baker in which Sussmann pushed debunked allegations of a secret back channel between Russia’s Alfa Bank and the Trump Organization. Durham contends that while Sussmann told Baker he was not working for any particular client, Sussmann was secretly doing the bidding of Hillary Clinton’s campaign and billing his services to...
  • WHY OBAMA REALLY SPIED ON TRUMP (September 2017)

    Obama had to spy on Trump to protect himself. The spying ramped up after Trump’s win when the results could no longer be used to engineer a Hillary victory, but would instead have to be used to cripple and bring down President Trump. Headed out the door, Rice was still unmasking the names of Trump’s people while Obama was making it easier to pass around raw eavesdropped data to other agencies. Obama had switched from spying on a political opponent to win an election, to spying on his successor to undo the results of the election. Abuse of power by...
  • Why The Russiagate Scandal Outranks Every Other In History

    The Political Insider ^ | 12-8-21 | J. Peder Zane
    Russiagate is the biggest scandal in American history. Nothing comes close in size, scope or harm to the republic than the years-long effort to cripple Donald Trump’s presidency by claiming he conspired with an enemy state to steal the 2016 election and then do its bidding as commander-in-chief. Its notorious predecessors – L’Affaire Lewinsky, Iran-Contra, Watergate, Teapot Dome, Crédit Mobilier, the XYZ Affair – involved relatively small numbers of malefactors engaged in specific acts of illegality and corruption (we still don’t know who, if anyone, planned the Jan. 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol) Russiagate, by contrast, is a vast...

    Back in May, we reported on the fight brewing in a DC federal court, where Fusion GPS and Glenn Simpson were trying to keep secret their internal correspondence and records relating to their role in pushing the Alfa Bank/Trump hoax. New court filings indicate Fusion GPS and Glenn Simpson improperly failed to disclose some of their most damning e-mails. OverviewFor background, the fight arises out of a lawsuit – Fridman, et al. (Alfa Bank) v. Bean LLC a/k/a Fusion GPS, and Glenn Simpson, where the owners of Alfa Bank have sued Fusion GPS and Simpson for falsely accusing “the Plaintiffs—and...

    Several observers have pointed out the terrible optics and even worse legal and cultural implications of the FBI’s raids earlier this month on three undercover journalists’ homes. Since the reporters’ organization, Project Veritas, is a political opponent of the American regime, the raids echo government behavior in unfree countries such as Russia, China, and Turkey.Yet there’s another, less remarked, aspect to this story. It’s the raids’ effect of protecting a longtime, top-tier deep state information operations partner, The New York Times.Project Veritas is a threat to The New York Times, not only in some of its undercover reporting about Times...

    The Epoch Times ^ | November 5, 2021 | Brian Cates
    More than a year ago, then-Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe made a stunning series of declassifications—the full implication of which many in the legacy media either ignored or never fully grasped. I believe this was due to mainstream media being handcuffed by many of the false narratives they had been peddling to the American public for a number of years about the Spygate scandal. One of the explosive declassifications involved handwritten notes by then-CIA Director John Brennan, who had personally briefed then-President Barack Obama and several members of his National Security Council at the White House about intercepted Russian...

    Christopher Steele’s primary source is Igor Danchenko, who collected info from what he first claimed was a “network of subsources” in Russia. -snip--Durham’s indictment says Danchenko obtained material from a longtime CLINTON Democratic operative. Danchenko was not a high-level Russian in Moscow. From 2005-2010, he worked at the Brookings Institution, a center-left think tank and was introduced to a Clinton crony who The NYT confirmed is Charles Dolan. Dolan has long been in Clinton circles, serving seven years as head of the Democratic Governors Assoc and state chairman of Bill Clinton’s 1992 and 1996 presidential campaigns. Clinton appointed him to...

    Attorney Ralph Martin confirmed Thursday that his client, DC-based communications executive Charles Dolan, Jr., is the person referred to as “PR Executive-1” in Special Counsel John Durham’s indictment of researcher Igor Danchenko. ... Durham indicted the Russian-born, U.S.-based Danchenko on five counts of lying to the FBI in connection with his role as a major source for Christopher Steele’s fraudulent “Russia dossier” on Donald Trump. The Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee paid the Fusion GPS opposition research firm, which hired Steele, to prepare the dossier and then provided it to the FBI. It became a basis for...

He then shopped it around and then supplied the FBI with a copy of it in hopes that Hillary would be president.And it doesn’t surprise us that George...

    This indicates the Alfa Bank angle of the John Durham investigation extends beyond Michael Sussmann and that several more players might still face potential criminal jeopardy. Yesterday, Special Counsel John Durham’s team responded to a perfunctory motion filed by defense attorneys in the criminal case against Michael Sussmann. Durham’s response reveals details about the breadth of the special counsel’s investigation and suggests two things: More charges will be forthcoming related to the Clinton campaign’s attempt to sell the Alfa Bank conspiracy theory, and the special counsel’s office has likely used similar investigative techniques to unravel further misconduct underlying the Crossfire...

    Christopher Steele should print up calling cards embossed with the words, "Liar For Hire." He could do splashy commercials bragging that Hillary Clinton is a happily satisfied customer. The former British spy pocketed buckets of money from the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee (not to mention cash from the FBI courtesy of you, the American taxpayer) by conjuring up a phony dossier that was used to smear Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election and trigger an FBI investigation that badly damaged his presidency. When you think about it, it was one helluva grift. Until it was exposed....

    Disgraced James Bond wannabe Christopher Steele granted an interview to George Stephanopoulos which has been turned into a "documentary" by George Stephanopoulos productions. Some might think it curious as to why Remington Steele has suddenly decided to come forward. It's no coincidence. You will remember that the Clinton campaign hired and paid Remington Steele to concoct a dossier on Donald Trump. You will remember that it was full of excrement that no one in the Mueller commission could validate. Even Peter Strzok said the dossier was a full of "bullsh*t" and probably Russian disinformation as well. The garbage dossier became...

    Evidence grows that the alleged Russian hacking of the DNC server in 2016 was an inside job. This is the fifth in a series of articles analyzing the 27 page federal grand jury indictment charging lawyer Michael Sussmann with making a false statement to the FBI. As stated in the fourth article, when the FBI learned of the alleged hack of the Democratic National Committee’s (“DNC”) emails, it asked to examine the server. In fact, at the same time as the alleged DNC hack, there were similar reports regarding the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s (“DCCC”) server as well as DNC...

    On Sept. 22, Michael Sussmann appeared via video at the first status conference held in Special Counsel John Durham’s criminal case against the former Clinton attorney. During the hearing, the government noted some disclosure material likely included classified information, spinning speculation of what those documents might be.But while the prosecution remains in its infant stages, and it will be some time before the country knows more details related to Sussmann’s role in Spygate, the biggest backers of the Trump-Russia collusion hoax have already exonerated Sussmann. That fits a long pattern of collusion spinners downplaying every investigative advance into their Russia...

    A newly declassified ruling from a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court in June demonstrates that the government lied about its legal basis for spying on former Trump campaign official Carter Page.The ruling states that the information produced by the FBI’s unlawful investigation into Page was illegally obtained and that it “found violations of the government’s duty of candor in all four applications.” The ruling also orders the government that “it must temporarily retain, and potentially use and disclose, the information collected, largely in the context of ongoing or anticipated litigation.”Under the court’s 21-page assessment, information obtained by all four...
