Trainspotting with Maggie Haberman

I wrote two days ago about New York Times White House correspondent Maggie Haberman.

Well Haberman has been a topic on the drops from time to time, but has come to the fore recently. On Jan. 5th 2019 this drop was made again from the Podesta email leaks citing Haberman’s compliance with Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign:

“We have has a very good relationship with Maggie Haberman of Politico over the last year. We have had her tee up stories for us before and have never been disappointed. While we should have a larger conversation in the near future about a broader strategy for reengaging the beat press that covers HRC, for this we think we can achieve our objective and do the most shaping by going to Maggie.”
You are not safe.
Q

On Jan. 6th 2019 we have these two drops:

We can talk through code or we can act through transparency. The choice is yours. However, the clock is ticking, and, at a select point in time, that option will be expired. Regular service appointments should be made in order to maintain functionality.
Q
The Twitter links above referenced above are below. The code brought up in the drops seem to be referencing the use of the word train. What do train references mean (if anything)?
Is it the transportation mode or is it learning something well through rote? And who may be needing this information?
We can assume given her left-leaning bias that was released in the Podesta email, the prospective audience may be in the former Obama and Clinton camps.

 

People in White House sound as confused as everyone else about what happens after the president’s EO, which McGahn was against him signing. There’s inter-agency disagreement about what it means. Trump now essentially tunes his chief of staff out, Trump driving the train.

—————–

On Jan.9th after all the back and forth with the drops, Haberman re-Tweeted this from an Asst. Managing Editor at the Times asking for a pic of people riding outside the train.

Now a bit of background. Dolnick is the grandnephew to former Times publisher Arthur Ochs “Punch” Sulzberger and cousin to the current publisher.
I’ll leave this post here for now, but this will need to be watched going forward on both sides to see if anything is dug up to clarify the communications. A warning has been issued.
Please watch the gap.

Liberal media biases ignoring Trump wins at their own peril

Many of the latest drops that came Sunday point to a media bias facing the Trump administration from general journalistic coverage to a specific reporter at the New York Times.

In the general sense the posts point out that the President cannot get coverage of his many successes such as: Demilitarizing North Korea, the economic agenda, which had stock market at all-time highs and lowest unemployment levels in more than 30 years and Trump’s ability to grow an economy that was languishing for eight years by in some quarters doubling output of “The New Normal” of 2% Gross Domestic Product.

On the specific side, the Sunday drops point to a reporter named Maggie Haberman.

Their father, Clyde Haberman, worked at The Post and then was a long-time columnist for the NY Times picking up a Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News with a team investigating then-NY Governor Elliot Spitzer’s prostitution scandal, which led to his resignation.

The drop brings up Maggie’s infamous mention in the Hillary Clinton’s 2016 Campaign Director John Podesta email that was published by Wikileaks. These drops come after ex-Editor of the NY Times Jill Abramson last week cited Maggie’s reporting as being biased against the Trump White House in her new book.

This from Podesta to top campaign staff and Hillary, and was prior to Maggie joining the Times:

“We have has a very good relationship with Maggie Haberman of Politico over the last year. We have had her tee up stories for us before and have never been disappointed. While we should have a larger conversation in the near future about a broader strategy for reengaging the beat press that covers HRC, for this we think we can achieve our objective and do the most shaping by going to Maggie.”

Sunday’s drop infers that Maggie has had plenty of recent Tweets citing trains and that she may be dropping coded messages for the liberal Democrats since the language is sometimes odd.

Let’s just say none of these revelations surprise me in the least, since Maggie’s liberal leanings have been well-known for years. My hope is that she is not in over her head as the drops suggest and that there is time for her to get out of any trouble she may be in.

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.
