Although there is much I have written about corruption, that can be proven with little doubt….there are many stories to be told that relate to corruption, but are more speculative. One of those things is the motive behind the Russian/Trump collusion story. The actual motive is not difficult to determine. All evidence points to Hillary Clinton and her team, conspiring with a multitude of co-conspirators and Russian contacts, to connect Trump and his campaign to the Russians. But yet, why did it continue even after the election? What motive is there if not political? Why would some Americans work in concert to discredit, undermine, and have removed an elected president? To answer any of those questions, one can only speculate.
I have put together a TIMELINE of events from published news stories across the web to help understand how things unfolded from late 2013 until early 2018, as it pertains to the Russian Collusion story. When you can see the order of events, you begin to see more clearly just what those speculative motivations might have been. I must say that once again there is no smoking gun. Just a chain of events that ended in February of 2018 with an indictment of 13 Russian operatives that can’t be prosecuted because they are not in the US. There also seems to be a connection between the Russian collusion story and the Hillary e-mail investigation, in as much as the same players are trying to bury the e-mail investigation and expose the Trump collusion story. Why?
It started in the summer of 2016, months before the election. The trigger was the hacking of the DNC and Podesta e-mails. This set back the campaign and launched a series of actions that would shake our democracy. Dirty tricks have always been part of politics, and always will be. In recent decades, the level and illegality of these dirty tricks have sunken to such low levels that issues are no longer front and center to campaigns. You see, both parties stand for the same thing. The only way one party wins over the other is to smear their opponent. Put their opponent in a place where the people forget the issues and focus on personal attacks.
It is clear that the hacking of the DNC and Podesta e-mails had a huge impact on the election. This is counter to everything the republicans and bureaucracy were saying, but the democrats knew it. It is correct that the hacking didn’t change one vote….but it sure changed a lot of minds. A lot of people already were aware of just how corrupt and dishonest Hillary Clinton was, but now the whole country knew it. Americans had to decide if they wanted a brash, arrogant nationalist or a totally corrupt globalist. For many, it wasn’t a hard choice, especially in the heartland where morals still exist.
The first two entries in the timeline from 2013 are informative. Hillary’s private server was no secret within government ranks, and seemingly was not an issue for anyone. After all, as long as you don’t get caught breaking the law…did you actually do anything wrong? Only if you have morals and ethics. The second tidbit is that Carter Page was working for the FBI in 2013. Yes, unfortunately we were lied to over and over when we were told Carter Page was on the FBI’s radar since 2013. He was never on their radar, he was never a suspect, and he never worked for the Russians….on the contrary he was working for the FBI as an undercover agent. In my essay “Who is Carter Page”, I make the case that Page not only worked undercover for the FBI in 2013, he never stopped working for the FBI. Since that investigation didn’t culminate until January of 2015, Page would have had to stay in character, at least until then. But in the timeline, we see that in just over a year, Page joins the Trump campaign. How he got that gig is still unknown.
Notice the correlation in March of 2015 between Hillary’s server being made public and the huge amount of DNC money going to Jill McCabe, from Terry McCauliff, Hillary Clinton confidant and fund raiser. Andrew McCabe was going to be the man to oversee the coming investigation. Another coincidence?
The next thing to see and understand is something I uncovered that I have seen very little reporting of. The last item in 2015 is “GCHQ begins surveillance of Trump team”. GCHQ is the British equivalent of NSA. It stands for Government Communication Headquarters. But there is something else. GCHQ is part of a treaty that was created in 1946, called “Five Eyes” It was a treaty between The US, Britain, Canada, New Zealand and Australia. It allows for sharing of all signal intelligence. It was created to spy on Russia and the Eastern Block after the war, but continued to be used to gather all sorts of intelligence. What is interesting, is only America has a 4th amendment, restricting the US government from spying on its own citizens. Britain has no such rule or law. So if Britain wants to spy on Trump they can….and by treaty they are able to share that information with the US government. How convenient. So you see our 4th amendment is meaningless. If the government wants to eavesdrop on your communications, they can do it legally and without anyone finding out. Trump doesn’t find out about this spying until after he becomes president. Admiral Rogers travels without authorization to the WH on Nov. 17th to inform Trump. In March Trump makes the claim Obama is wiretapping Trump Tower. It was GCHQ. Read about it here
One of the first things that can be seen in 2016, in addition to Carter Page joining the campaign, is, at the same time George Papadopoulos also joins the campaign. Not two weeks later, Papadopoulos makes contact with a professor named Mifsud. Mifsud was suppose to have contacts with the Kremlin. Later Page will travel to Moscow to meet with Russians. Exactly what was this all about? I have already outlined what I think Page’s role was……did Papadopoulos have a similar role? You can read about it here. It’s important to understand something: Mueller’s latest indictment (37 pages) clearly stated THERE WAS NO COLLUSION between the Russians and the Trump campaign. So why did Page and Papadopoulos seem to try to make it look like there was? Almost everything reported by the MSM, pointed to these two men as the reason for the belief that Trump was colluding with the Russians. Why did Mueller not see it or use it? Could it be the knowledge of what the FBI might have been doing was worse than getting the president? Carter Page
About the end of March of 2016, Trump had clinched the nomination. It was about this time the law firm of the DNC, Perkins-Coie hired Fusion GPS. Once again we were lied to about this. The MSM claimed a republican donor initiated the contract to find dirt on Trump. The truth was that the Washington Free Beacon, a markedly conservative website did hire Fusion GPS to do “candidate” research on all the republican candidates, prior to Trump winning the nomination. In April, their involvement ended. A week later, Fusion signed a new contract with Perkins-Coie to do “opposition” research for the Clinton Campaign. Fusion, then hired Christopher Steele to find dirt on Trump. The “dossier” began to be created. By June, 2016, the first draft of the dossier was written. At the same time, Don Junior was contacted by a friend and publicist for Emin Agalavrov, an entertainer from Russia, whose father was a business associate of Junior’s father. They had dealings concerning the Miss Universe Pageant in 2013. They wanted to set up a meeting with Don Junior. It was implied they had dirt on Hillary. However that was a ruse. The topic of the meeting was Russian sanctions and the Magnitsky act. This meeting was in the news for weeks. Again, an implication that Trump was colluding with the Russians. One can only notice that all these avenues of collusion were not initiated by Trump, his family, or his closest allies.
In early May the Hillary investigation into the private server and classified information was being forcibly brought to an end. Comey had already created a draft memo of an exoneration of Hillary, however she, or other witnesses had not been interviewed. About a month later, on June 27th, Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch meet on the Tarmac in Phoenix. 4 days after that meeting Lynch says, publically, she will accept any recommendation from the FBI. 4 days after that, Comey gives his infamous press conference where he says no charges would be filed, and closes the investigation. On September 28, McCabe is made aware of a cache of Hillary Clinton work related e-mails on a computer at the home of Huma Abedin. He does not disclose this information for over a month, just days before the election. The investigation is re-opened on Oct 29th, 9 days before the election and closed again on November 6th, 2 days before the election. Anyone looking at all this has to think it strange on its face, but in the context of politics, it couldn’t be clearer that the election certainly was influencing decisions at the FBI. The one little known side story to this was the promotion of Melissa Hogeman on October 14th. Hogeman is the wife of Peter Strzok, the lead investigator on the Hillary e-mail probe. Another coincidence? This takes the story up to the election.
I’ll pick it up after the election in part 2.
