The real Russiagate smoking gun

Hard because the programmers attempt to inform us there is just one story at a time — Ukraine for now — or {that a} trite phrase like “however her emails” dismisses one of the vital political occasions of our time, one thing sinister occurred within the United States which calls for our consideration. If we stay distracted, it’s going to occur once more in 2024.

We are on the lookout for two smoking weapons now in reference to Russiagate. Today’s Part I’ll present that Hillary Clinton herself sat atop a large-scale conspiracy to make use of the instruments of recent espionage to create and disseminate false details about Donald Trump. Part II to observe will present that the FBI was an lively participant in that conspiracy. In the mainstream media vernacular, we’re bearing witness.

In summer time of 2016, Hillary Clinton’s non-public e-mail server and her improper dealing with of labeled info was the political story. Consensus was that the election was Hillary’s to lose — that her opponents on the whole and the Trump clown present specifically couldn’t cease her.

But regardless of the mainstream media’s heroic makes an attempt to downplay the significance of the emails, the problem lingered within the public thoughts, usually aided by Hillary’s personal contradictory statements. The emails nagged on the Clinton marketing campaign — her unsecured server lay uncovered throughout her State Department journeys to Russia and China, and the deepest concern was that her inner communications and all that they needed to say about issues just like the Clinton Foundation may seem any day on Wikileaks, ending her profession. That is what actually mattered, misplaced in a cloud of mumbo jumbo over whether or not having labeled materials on an unclassified server was actionable or not. It can also be why Julian Assange won’t ever go away jail alive.

Clinton tried to get forward of the story. The preliminary shot was fired on July 24, 2016 by marketing campaign supervisor Robby Mook, who was the primary to claim there was a quid professional quo between Trump and Russia. “It was very regarding final week that Donald Trump modified the Republican platform to turn out to be what some specialists would regard as pro-Russian,” Mook mentioned, referring to a false story from the GOP conference only a few days earlier. (Fun reality: the media this previous month revived this fully-negated story, claiming it demonstrated that Trump and Putin have been in cahoots over Ukraine early on.)

The New York Times despatched up a warning flare to all mainstream media the following day saying Clinton was making the Trump-Russia allegation a “theme” of the marketing campaign. As if she knew simply what was coming subsequent, Hillary took that as her cue to assert the Russians have been making an attempt to destroy her marketing campaign, a theme which quickly morphed into the narrative that the Russians have been making an attempt to assist Trump. That quickly modified once more as themes have been crowd-tested, and the theme settled on the notion that Trump and Putin have been working in collusion to elect Trump as a Manchurian candidate.

A major driver behind all this was a mysterious “file,” together with a “pee tape” — kompromat that Moscow supposedly held to regulate Trump. Word was a former MI6 intelligence officer named Christopher Steele compiled the file, giving the entire thing Bond-like credibility. American media overtly speculated on Trump’s imminent arrest for treason at the same time as he gained the election. The FBI’s James Comey and CIA’s John Brennan briefed/threatened president-elect Trump on the file as the complete contents spilled into the media. Talk shifted to impeachment.

We know now the dossier was fiction. Steele’s uncooked info was supplied by the Clinton marketing campaign, together with his chief supply working for the Brookings Institute. Steele labored as a double agent, feeding Clinton-bought pretend information to the FBI whereas pretending he was an FBI informant with sources deep inside Russia. The file was totally a product of the Clinton marketing campaign.

We additionally now know the Clinton marketing campaign, by way of one among its legal professionals, Michael Sussmann, gathered web DNS knowledge on Trump and used that to create a very fictional story about Trump utilizing a secret server linked to the Alfa Bank to speak together with his Russian “handlers.” It seems a number of the teachers who investigated the DNC server break-in have been the identical ones who fed Sussmann knowledge on Alfa Bank. And get this — they have been paid by the Pentagon. Sussmann was the bridge between the 2 ops, working for the DNC to pin the server hack on Russia and facilitating the Alfa Bank story behind the scenes.

Sussmann additionally peddled a false story about Russian smartphones connecting into the Trump White House. Sussmann hid his relationship to Clinton from the FBI, pretending to be a “involved citizen.” Sussmann is below indictment by Special Counsel John Durham, and he doesn’t dispute these fundamental information in his personal protection submitting. He solely claims his mendacity was immaterial. His most up-to-date effort to throw out proof resulting in his indictment failed.

Both the file op and the DNS op have been funded by Clinton marketing campaign cash laundered by its legal professionals at Perkins Coie after which contractors Fusion GPS and Orbis. In each situations the false info created was peddled to the FBI (and CIA) by a Clinton-paid stooge pretending to not be affiliated with the marketing campaign. As famous, Steele posed as an FBI informant and Sussmann as a “involved citizen.”

Both ops used a complicated info sub-op, feeding the media as if Steele and Sussmann weren’t the supply after which having Steele and Sussmann step in to function nameless confirmers: an inside loop. In each situations the FBI took the bait and opened unprecedented full-spectrum investigations into first candidate Trump, after which president Trump.

There was yet one more route into the FBI: Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr. Ohr’s spouse Nellie labored for Fusion GPS, the entrance firm for Steele, having beforehand carried out contract work for the CIA. Nellie handed the Steele file to her husband to hand-carry the work into the FBI. Bruce Ohr, regardless of acknowledging that it broke all guidelines of proof dealing with, did simply that on July 30, 2016. The FBI issued infiltration orders to Stephan Halper to start out operating operation Crossfire Hurricane in opposition to Trump staffers.

Four years in any case that, on October 6, 2020, then-director of nationwide intelligence John Ratcliffe declassified paperwork revealing that then-CIA director John Brennan briefed then-president Obama on or about July 28, 2016 on Hillary Clinton’s plan to tie candidate Trump to Russia as a method of distracting the general public from her use of a non-public e-mail server.

The highly-redacted document states, “We’re getting extra perception into Russian actions from [REDACTED]. Cite alleged authorised by Hillary Clinton on July 26 a proposal from one among her international coverage advisers to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by the Russian safety service.”

Ratcliffe in 2020 additionally revealed that in September 2016, the CIA forwarded to the FBI an investigative referral on Hillary Clinton approving “a plan regarding U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump and Russian hackers hampering U.S. elections to be able to distract the general public from her e-mail scandal.”

The mainstream media on the time dismissed these two vital disclosures as unverified disinformation. The drawback with merely waving away these paperwork is the very excessive threshold for info to really attain the president. Every day a near-infinite quantity of data is collected by the CIA. A tiny proportion of that’s culled for the standing company briefings the president receives. An even tinier subset is seen as vital and credible sufficient to be personally briefed by the CIA director face-to-face with the president.

Rarely is there near-time “verification” with intelligence. There is, nonetheless, “confidence” — how positive the CIA is that the data is true. The director wouldn’t waste his boss’s time with intelligence of low or medium confidence (and neither would the company do the identical in sending its referral on to the FBI.)

Knowing what we all know now concerning the Clinton marketing campaign funding of the ops and Clinton personnel involvement, Brennan’s confidence is best understood. And you will need to keep in mind that Brennan overtly supported Hillary; he was not the man to dish dust on her. He was simply ensuring his boss, Barack Obama, had a heads up if the entire thing was ever uncovered.

Both ops ran on Clinton’s cash and Clinton’s folks. Both ops used the identical tradecraft. And the smoking gun of Brennan’s notes ties all of it to Hillary herself.
