Will Mueller’s report show collusion by the Democrats? Probably not

On Thursday we are supposed to get Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s redacted report on the Trump’s campaign’s alleged Russian collusion.

I have a sense it will be pushed back to Good Friday to dampen the impact for the Democrats since there is no smoking gun.

Two years and multiple millions in costs, Mueller’s non-partisan team has already concluded that there was no collusion or obstruction of justice by the Trump campaign or administration.

We know now the whole probe into this specious charge was the Fusion/GPS report written by ex-British spy Christopher Steele working with Nellie Ohr, wife of Justice Department executive Bruce Ohr.

The Steel report was paid for by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign through their law firm Perkins Coie.

The Clinton campaign and members of the Obama administration working with “friendly” journalists leaked the dossier to get more “evidence” to present to the FISA court in order to get warrants to spy on American citizens.

We probably will not hear about any of this from Mueller’s report. We will not hear about the spying on Americans such as Carter Page, George Papadopoulos nor  Lt. Gen Michael Flynn. There will be no mention of the bugging of Trump Tower just before the 2016 election.

We also will not hear how perverted this whole investigation was. In America you are allowed to investigate a crime. In the dossier case, they investigated presidential candidate Donald Trump looking for a crime. It’s the basic premise and protection afforded all of us under the Fourth Amendment that was violated.

While the first draft of history is usually wrong, I have a sense this first take on Russian collusion will be so spectacularly biased that it will not be worth anything at all except to give testimony to how slanted the media is to this president.

Remember, last week we had the Attorney General of the United States tell a Congressional panel — under oath — that he believes that the president-elect of the United States was spied upon by the Obama administration.

Anybody remember the blaring headlines when that story broke? Were you aghast when you saw the unusual six column, two deck headline across the top of the Washington Post or New York Times?

Of course not. They buried the story inside the paper, very small.

Whenever the report is released, there is no smoking gun. I’ll bet there is plenty of innuendo though that the media will jump on to blunt the force of the report that no collusion or obstruction occurred.

However innuendo cannot be prosecuted. If you could, there would be no one in Congress to react to the story.

Beware the Ides, Et tu, Q-ute

Thursday was an extremely busy day for drops on the board. I will briefly speak about most of them.

Disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok’s Capitol Hill testimony was released. Between his and ex-lover Lisa Page, who was a FBI lawyer, we see the “collusion” on their part to frame candidate Trump and spy on President-elect Trump.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s deputy Andrew Weissman leaving after two years of probing Trump and finding nothing.

Rod Rosenstein’s debrief is complete, meaning he will be stepping down very soon.

Attorney General William Barr is very “disgusted” by what he has discovered went on in Obama’s DOJ and FBI against Trump and his campaign. We are told a press conference laying out many of criminal charges will be coming soon.

We learned from Nellie Ohr’s Congressional testimony that she was in fact a CIA agent while working with Christopher Steele on the Russian Dossier for Fusion/GPS.

We have two key executives announcing they are leaving Facebook after arguing with Mark Zuckerberg. The exits of No.3 FB exec and head of WhatsApp comes one day after a global blackout and just days after news breaks of the connection between LifeLog — a DARPA project — and Facebook.

A drop on the mosque shooting in New Zealand where 49 people died said be vigilant. If you see something, say something. The bad actors are looking for a way to change the narrative.

So plenty of news and we are told today is Friday. It’s the Ides of March, so Et tu, Q-ute

How many federal grand juries of media leaks are going on?

We have known since just after Labor Day last year that former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was being investigated for lying under oath and leaking to journalists.

We have not heard the determination of the secret panel whether they issued indictments to charge McCabe for the crimes. McCabe is accused with lying to investigators, the same charge brought against Lt. Gen Michael Flynn. While Flynn was charged McCabe has not despite DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz recommending such charges in his report.

Earlier this week we also learned that James Baker the former General Counsel for the FBI, is under federal investigation for unauthorized media disclosures. The Connecticut US Attorney John Durham has impaneled a grand jury to look into leaks coming from Baker’s office.

Two congressmen James Jordan (R-Ohio) and Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) released the letter sent to Durham concerning his Baker probe.

As previously reported here, the letter mentions two reporters—David Corn of Mother Jones and Franklin Foer, a writer for The Atlantic who worked for Slate during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Both reporters posted explosive stories on October 31, 2016 about Trump’s alleged ties to Russia. Corn’s article is mostly about the dossier and clearly sourced by Christopher Steele, but his piece also references Foer’s article alleging unusual activity between a Trump organization email server and Alpha Bank, the largest private bank in Russia.

The Alpha Bank connection was one more cog in the manufactured Trump-Russia collusion plot that could also be traced back to Fusion GPS chief Glenn Simpson, according to the article.

So with all these federal probes going on of press leaks accusing presidential candidate at the time Donald Trump of having ties to the Russians, what media leak probe do we not know about?

There seems to be one involving the NY Times White House reporter and CNN commentator Maggie Haberman. Where is that secret grand jury probe located?

Stay tuned.

Lt. Gen. Flynn is the ‘keystone’ to FISA and Russian collusion plan

Lt. General Michael Flynn was the driving force behind the Russian collusion plan to undermine the Trump administration from the beginning.

Flynn was the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency in the Obama administration from 2012-2014. He was a critic of the administration’s dealings with radical Islamists. Flynn lost a battle to CIA Director John Brennan — a Muslim by faith — and the White House of his assessment of the US involvement in Syria.

Flynn was feared and despised by the Obama White House for his views on radical Islamist and his deep knowledge of State Department and CIA involvement with Islamist extremists in Iran and Syria.

After leaving the Obama White House, Flynn traveled to Russia and meets with Russia government officials as a civilian. He is attends a dinner with Russian leader Vladimir Putin.

While Flynn did all the appropriate actions for the Russian trip — he met with DIA staff before leaving to let them know of the trip, he was briefed before on how to deal with the Russian questions and he was debriefed on what he discovered afterward. All above-board and reportedly helpful to the intelligence community.

So in 2015 Flynn begins speaking with the Trump campaign. Obama’s staff is furious and knows it needs to silence Flynn because he knows too much.

In late 2015 enter Stefan Halper, a career CIA asset working then as a Senior Fellow at Cambridge University. I believe Halper was brought in by Brennan to set up Flynn as colluding with the Russians. That’s where the whole Russian plan was hatched.

Halper was key to bringing in Fusion/GPS and Christopher Steele to produce the dossier with its first target being Flynn.

Flynn was most likely the subject of the first FISA application in the late spring of 2016 for his trip to Russia. However, the FISA court turned down the application because it did not show Flynn broke any laws.

In order to get the FISA court to approve spying on American citizens you need to show: a) The citizen was working with a foreign government, which in and of itself is not unlawful and b) broke the law like fraud or providing classified information.

The original application had no law broken, so it was denied. The Halper and Co. then went after Carter Page in the FISA court later in 2016 to spy on the Trump administration.

This is why Flynn remains free even after admitting guilt to minor charges brought by the DOJ/FBI for speaking with Russians after Trump’s election, but before he took office. Ironically FBI’s Peter Strzok was the agent that interviewed Flynn at the White House without a lawyer and brought these charges.

Obama administration still needed to silence Flynn from joining the Trump team as the National Security Advisor since he knew where all the Obama bodies are buried.

One last “indictment” on Flynn. When Trump meets with Obama after the election the only name brought up by Obama is Flynn telling Trump not to trust him.

This is why I say Lt. General Michael Flynn is the keystone to the whole Russian dossier.

FISA release ends Mueller’s witch hunt

So why on Monday afternoon did special counsel Robert Mueller announce that former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort violate his plea deal by lying to the feds.

Just as a refresher Mueller’s team have a Manafort conviction on 8 counts of financial fraud that occurred prior to his involvement with the Trump campaign. He also took a plea agreement n September admitting to fraud and tax evasion over his lobbying work for a pro-Russian political party and politician in Ukraine. Again before being involved in the Trump campaign.

Part of the court filing from Monday stated: “After signing the plea agreement, Manafort committed federal crimes by lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Special Counsel’s Office on a variety of subject matters, which constitute breaches of the agreement,” Mueller’s team wrote in a 3-page filing.

No further information on what he lied about. The filing only stated that the lies would be revealed on a later date.

I’m not here to defend Manafort, who is a career political fixer and influencer, but I do question the timing of the filing.

It comes on the heels that Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker is about to release the FISA documents and ex-AG Loretta Lynch and ex-FBI chief James Comey are going to be brought in front of Congress to testify on actions pertaining to FISA court abuses. Only to be followed up by Federal prosecutor John Huber’s update to Congress on his probe into the Clinton Foundation.

These events scheduled for the beginning of next week should poke huge holes into Mueller’s working premise that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians during the 2016 presidential election cycle.

What we can surmise from reports on the unredacted FISA documents is that the Democratic National Committee along with perhaps the Clinton Foundation provided funds to produce a report written by Christopher Steele with research help from Nellie Ohr (wife of DOJ staffer Bruce Ohr) and contributions from the British, Australian and New Zealand spy agencies (part of the Five Eyes program) to dupe the FISA court to get a warrant to spy on Trump campaign staffers and the Trump Tower offices.

Remember the first time the DOJ went before the court with Steele’s report the surveillance application was turned down. Only after the Obama Administration leaked the report to New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman and used her clippings as evidence that something was going on in the second application did the court issue the warrant.

So out of all this falsehood (and believe me I have only scratched the surface of this topic here) Robert Mueller is named special counsel by Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein in early 2017. And is it any wonder why we only see indictments and plea deals for actions that have occurred prior to the presidential campaign?

Between Whitaker and Huber we need to get the FISA documents out in the open for all to see and understand who the real colluders were. And it had nothing to do with the Russians, but everything to do with the Obama White House in cahoots with our “allies” to take down the Trump presidency.
