Russian Collusion, the Real Story

Why the CIA is fighting so hard to remove Trump

As I dig deeper into the coup attempt by officials at the highest levels of our government, I hesitate to go on. Not because I don’t care, but because what I am learning….maybe I shouldn’t know. Now there is no way I, or anybody but those involved, can know the workings of the CIA or the Intelligence Community….its designed that way. So the pieces I am able to glean are certainly incomplete and mysterious, and leave many questions. Last year I began a ten part series on the Clinton Foundation titled “Into The Weeds”. I used that title, because everything I found was complicated and took focus to follow. I’m sure many readers were confused. Well, this next part of the story makes that look like a child’s book.

That said, I believe I can conclude that I know what happened. It all starts with the Magnitsky Act! What the hell is that??? Yes, I know, only a handful of informed conservatives know what it is or why it was enacted, and why it is important. Much has been written about it so I won’t endeavor to provide its substance here. Wilkipedia has a pretty good basic (and short) explanation. I will, however, try to give you an analysis that connects the dots to this soft coup taking place. You can read about the Magnitsky Act here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnitsky_Act

Magnitsky
Sergei Magnitsky

The Magnitsky Act revolved around a company called Prevezon and an elaborate money laundering scheme inside Russia. Many times I have laid out for you just how corrupt the so-called Russian government is. The oligarchs control things and many government officials simply do their bidding. This scheme, involving a quarter billion dollars, was no different. It occurred in 2007, and was discovered in 2012. Russia brought charges, but failed to investigate thoroughly, due to who was involved. Meanwhile in America, law enforcement moved to seize questionable assets of Prevezon while bringing charges in America. This was sometime right around the election of 2016. The case was set to go to trial in the Southern District of NY in March of 2017. Coincidently, or not so coincidently, this is the exact time Preet Bahara was fired by Jeff Sessions. Bahara was the United States attorney for the Southern District of NY. The case was mysteriously settled for a mere $6 million in October of 2017. Now….did this firing, and this case, prompt anger at the CIA? Was Trump and Sessions beginning to ease pressure on Russia? You see the Magnitsky act gave the US government a lot of power over the Russian economy. Through the US banking system and their control over a lot of Central Banks, the US could now sanction anybody, anywhere in the world. A heavy hammer indeed!

 

So what does this have to do with Russian Collusion? Good question, and the right one. You see as we look to the scandalous acts of the justice system toward Trump, we are missing a lot of the surrounding machanations that have led us in one direction….conspiracy! This is really all about Russian sanctions and the CIA’s incessant desire to destroy Russia. Its not a coincidence that the authors of the Magnitsky Act are known to you…..Ben Cardin and yes, our friend……the “Hawk”, John McCain. The game the Hawks and the CIA are playing to destroy Russia is very dangerous. I would venture to say that Crimea, Georgia, Ukraine and so many other actions by Russia are a kind of retaliation to American sanctions and actions harmful to Russia and her oligarchs. These are not normal government leaders. They have access to armies, nuclear weapons, satellites and satellite weapons, and advanced delivery systems. Ever try to catch a snake in a corner? It will bite you….and you might die! This, my friends, is the game the CIA is playing.

 

During the campaign, Trump said many times he wanted better relations with Russia. We all, pretty much agreed that he was right…afterall, in 2016, terrorism was still front and center in most American households. We thought the US and Russia together could solve a lot of the world’s problems. But that’s not what the CIA wanted. In the summer of 2016, after he secured the nomination, the campaign was criticized for what was reported as chaos within the inner circle. “shake-up” after “shake-up” we were told was simply bad management….Trump didn’t know what he was doing. But Trump stuck to his idea that he wanted better relations with Russia. In June, he dumped Corey Lewandowski in favor of Paul Manafort, someone who had every reason to want better relations with Russia. Could this be why Trump brought him in? Then a lot of bad stuff came out about Manafort and he had to go. This was the exact time period the CIA hatched a plan to destroy him then have him removed from office. Russian Collusion was born.

 

ciaThis is why it is so hard to diagnose. We all agree Russia is not our friend. We also agree we must be careful when dealing with Russia. Trump believes we need Russia to help with NK, Ukraine, Syria, Iran…….all the big threats to peace in the world. The CIA, on the other hand believes we can solve those problems if Russia is destroyed. Both perspectives are probably correct and flawed. Trying to get Russia’s help in anything is not only difficult and costly, it could be very dangerous for our allies and friends. On the other hand, trying to crush Russia, could be even more dangerous to the world if we push them into war. Meanwhile, friends of the president are advising just how dangerous Russia is. They are breaking the sanctions on NK, they are breaking the sanctions on Iran, they are fighting back the only way they know how….using corruption. These so-called “friends” of the president are giving him information provided to them by the CIA.

 

Recently I uncovered an ancient interview of an Air Force colonel named Fletcher Proudy. It is from 1973…so its old. BUT! It is revealing because what he reveals is still going on and has grown to epic proportions within all parts of government. The interview was over an hour, but I cut out a 6 minute excerpt that explains what has happened to our government. Watch it before you go on, because everything else you read here has to be placed in the context of just how the CIA has taken over our government.

 

Now you should understand that the CIA has people all throughout the government, making policy decisions, and we don’t even know who they are or who they are working for. In the full interview, Prouty revealed that former secretary of state, Alexander Haig, was an early CIA employee, who rose through the system working for the CIA, attaining secretary status. Who knows, now, after 40 years, is taking orders from the CIA? When I wrote about what I believed to be connections between the Clinton Foundation and the CIA, even I thought I was crazy. But much of what I have found over the past few months, lead me to believe that that connection is real. That all the folks I discussed have one single mission….to destroy Russia. Russia has our foot on their throat. How would you expect them to react? By the way, this policy preference is great for a bloated defense industry thirsty for government contracts. The sanctions are crippling the oligarchs and that is crippling their already weak economy. All of this leads to what Russia has been doing to end the sanctions.

Natalia Veselnitskaya

It starts with the meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer that purportedly had dirt on Hillary Clinton in June of 2016. The meeting was reported as proof positive that Trump was colluding with Russians. But now we are learning that the meeting was orchestrated by elements within the government, working in concert with Russian friends.

For sure this is a very hard trail to follow, and I can’t be sure I have all the pieces yet, but I want to get what I now know out there while its fresh in my mind….because it is complicated. At the center of all of it is the Russian Oligarch, Oleg Deripaska. As you may recall, I wrote early about his friendship and relationship to Andrew McCabe that goes back to 2009. At the time, Robert Mueller was FBI director and Hillary Clinton was secretary of state. Mueller sent McCabe to Moscow to seek his assistance in acquiring the release of our CIA resource, Robert Levinson, who was being held in Iran. Deripaska had a deal made when Hillary Clinton pulled out, after Deripaska spent $25 million of his own money to get the deal done. Just why is unknown, but a quote from Deripaska in 2009, may reveal a possible reason: “They try to push me in a corner, maybe believing I would cooperate with them [with information]. There is a Russian interest I would never go through.”

Andrew McCabe

But the relationship with Deripaska continued. In September of 2016, McCabe, once again solicited Deripaska’s help. They met in London and Deripaska was asked to provide damaging information on Manafort. Coincidently, he was offered $25 million for that information. Manafort had been a lobbyist for Deripaska and also entered into a business venture with him that went south. Deripaska sued Manafort. In the United States, Deripaska was represented by Adam Waldman, who just coincidently was also the attorney for Christopher Steele, the author of the notorious dossier. Waldman has close ties to the Clintons and worked in the Clinton Justice Department.

Oddly enough, in 2013, Natalia Veselnitskaya, hired Fusion GPS to lobby against the Magnitsky Act (Russian sanctions). We recently found out that Veselnitskaya had closer ties to the Kremlin than she had revealed. She was taking direction from people at the highest levels within the Russian government. She was closely tied to Sergei Prikhodko, a long time Russian government deputy director,

prikhodko
Prikhodko

minister, and administrator, and a man very close to Putin. I recently uncovered a video, made by the main opposition candidate to Putin laying out a case of bribery and other criminal activity within the Russian government and particularly with Prikhodko. Its ironic, because it fits into everything I have layed out so far. To understand why, you must understand how Deripaska is viewed in Russia. He is a billionaire oligarch and a criminal. He has strong connections to the Russian Mafia. I have outlined in other writings the connections in Russia between the sitting government and the oligarchs. So….with that understanding, the video reveals a secret meeting between Drripaska and Minister Prikhodko. The video is concerned that it was bribery, because the meeting was held over three days on Deripaska’s yacht, cruising in Norwegian waters. Aboard the yacht were several hookers, one of whom, wrote a book about what was discussed at the meeting. (She is now in hiding) Sanctions were discussed and the name of Victoria Nuland…assistant secretary of state under Obama from 2013 until January of 2017, was mentioned as the one responsible for those sanctions. This meeting was in September of 2016, just weeks before the Trump Dossier was first written. So….the inference is that the US State Department, in the person of Nuland, was using Deripaska to create credible evidence that Trump was colluding with Russia. I said create….not find, purposely. The difference is the difference between law enforcement and treason.

aaaaa
Christopher Steele

 

 

Now I have to change gears and talk about Britain’s involvement in all this collusion. As you should know, Christopher Steele was a long time MI6 spy, stationed in Russia. He worked with another agent named Pablo Miller (an alias). Miller was assigned to be the handler for a Russian spy turned double agent……Sergey Scripal. When Steele left MI6 he started an intelligence gathering company called Orbis. This is the company hired by Fusion GPS to get dirt on Trump. When Miller left MI6 he immediately went to work for Steele at Orbis. Scripal was a defector in effect and was likely the source of much of the dossier information. I don’t know how it fits yet, but Scripal is the double agent that was reportedly poisoned by the Russians. A poison was used that only the Russians use….how convenient! Personally I don’t believe it for a minute. This poisoning has everything to do with this collusion plot, I just don’t know exactly how or why….yet! But I can say that after this poisoning of a single Russian agent, Britain went crazy on Russia. They invoked all sorts of verbal warnings, and imposed over reaching sanctions. Was this what was intended? British counterintelligence was also involved through the “Five Eyes” treaty. They were secretly surveilling the Trump campaign and who knows what they were hearing. I can only speculate that they learned Trump was planning to lessen the sanctions on Russia. This had to be stopped.

It has been reported that FBI agents went to visit Oleg Deripaska when he was in London in September of 2016. The agents were seeking Deripaska’s help to gain evidence that Trump was colluding with Russia. They offered him $25 million to help. He laughed and said the entire idea was ridiculous. They asked him to think about it. They then asked if he could help with information on Paul Manafort, that would show Manafort was working with the Kremlin to influence the election. Even though Deripaska had every reason to provide that information, he said there was no such collusion. I suspect this is when they turned to Steele.

 

Now, without the context here and in many other pieces I have written, it would certainly look like the FBI was just doing their job…..but placed in the context of offering Deripaska money, offering to pay Steele for his information, and ultimately using that information in a warrant request that was not able to be confirmed….still leads us right back to a conspiracy to CREATE evidence, not find evidence. Much of the left’s reporting, completely ignores this context.

The next part of the story is a more thourough investigation of “spygate”. It has been reported and talked about by Trump that “spies” were placed into his campaign and his transition….even his administration. I believe I have identified four such players. The first I have written about at length, but I have new information that further corroberates what I wrote in “Who Is Carter Page”.

Carter Page is an intelligence operative. There can be no other conclusion. Let me start at the beginning of his education. As I list these things, remember he is a professional “expert” in the energy industry.

Carter Page
Carter Page

 

Carter Page is 48 years old. He graduated from the Naval Academy in 1993. From there he was accepted into the Trident Scholar Program, reserved for the top 10% of his class. In that program, he completed a paper titled ”Balancing Congressional Needs for Classified Information”. After that, he moves on to Georgetown University where he completes a masters degree in “National Security Studies” in 1994. From Georgetown, he goes into active duty in the Navy, spending his last year there (1999-2000) stationed in Morocco working in Naval Intelligence. In 2000, he leaves the Navy and does a stint at the Council of Foreign Relations, where he goes to Russia to do “energy related research” in the Caspian Sea area. I could be wrong, but at this point, he is 30 years old, and I see no education related to energy. From that little research gig, he is handed a VP job working for Merrill Lynch in London, then soon travels to Moscow to set up Merrill’s first office in Moscow. According to the bio, he then completes an MBA from New York University in 2001. Surely that must be a typo. The next listing is his acquisition of a PHD from the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) in 2009. There he writes a dissertation titled: “transition of Asian countries from communism to capitalism” The dissertation is twice rejected by his advisors. Finally it is accepted when he receives new examiners….imagine that. Nowhere in his education can you find a hint of learning about the energy industry. But wait….there’s more. An energy expert in the field for over 20 years asked some questions. She went to Russia and talked to Page’s boss in Moscow. His name is Sergey Aleksashenko. He said this about Page:

“When it came to finance”, Aleksashenko says, Page “was not a specialist in any branches of finance or in any instruments. Judging by the drivel he spews on Russia, you can tell he doesn’t really understand the topic.”

Also talking with a co-worker, Artem Torchinsky, he said “mildly speaking, not competent in the field of energy.”

Then there’s this: After he left Merrill Lynch in 2008, he started his own, one man investment company, Global Energy Capital. On his most basic of websites he claims to have been involved in some major energy deals. He writes this about himself:

global energy

Well, it seems, not so much. Julia Ioffe that 20 year, experienced, energy expert asked some of her long time energy friends. Here’s what she wrote:
“So I called Ian Craig, the CEO of Sakhalin Energy from 2004 to 2009. But Craig said he didn’t know anyone named Carter Page. He was also surprised to hear about Merrill Lynch’s purported involvement in the deal. “I don’t think Merrill Lynch or anyone else was front-lining the negotiations, because it was all done at the highest level, because it was very political”

global energy 2

 “When I asked a prominent Western businessman, who has worked in the former Soviet Union for over two decades and who is said to socialize with Sechin and other members of the Russian elite, about Page’s claim to Bloomberg that he advised Gazprom on Sakhalin II, he said, “I rolled my eyes at that one.” (He, too, said he hadn’t heard of Page until Trump’s announcement.)”

So, bottom line is how he is portrayed in the media and even how he portrays himself just simply doesn’t jive with the facts about his background. Then I’ll add this: When we first heard the name Carter Page, it was that he was a possible Russian agent working on the Trump campaign. This is also how the Steele Dossier pictured him. It was often reported (and still is) that he was being investigated in 2013 by the FBI for possible Russian espionage. So what was he doing in 2013? In 2013, the FBI was investigating a Russian spy network in New York. The three Russian spies were trying to gather information on the American energy industry. Carter Page, working in NY at the time, became the hook of the FBI, to infiltrate the ring. The screen shots below are from a sealed complaint/deposition document I found on-line. In the document the FBI special agent mentions “male-1”. This is Carter Page.

DOJ Complaint                DOJ complaint 2

 

This screen shot is an excerpt from that document:

Excerpt DOG complaint

It has been confirmed by Page’s own testimony before congress that he is male-1 contained in this document. The three men indicted in the case were Victor Podobnyy Evgeny Buryakov and Igor Sporyshev. The media has again and again reported that the Russians tried to recruit Carter Page. It just ain’t so! Look at this press release excerpt from the Justice Department after Buryakov was convicted.

DOJ press release

Male-1 is now referred to as UCE-1 which is short for UNDERCOVER EMPLOYEE! So in 2013 Carter Page was working undercover for the FBI to quash a Russian spy ring, not as an innocent victim or fellow conspirator. Now if all that’s still not enough to prove that Page was not an unsuspecting low level member of the Trump campaign, but an accomplise helping the FBI/CIA create evidence to frame Trump, then look at this one and a half minute clip I pulled from a Hannity interview. Hannity was the only one that ever asked Page the one question I wanted an answer to: “Did you work for the government?” Watch closely and tell me if you think he answered the question and was being honest. Watch how he quickly changed the subject.

 

 

 

All this information easily confirms everything I have written about Carter Page. He was used as the evidence that Trump was trying to soften the US position on Russia. He then became the legal cover to acquire surveillance warrants to listen to everything the campaign was saying and communicating. Trump was trying to change a long standing and on-going policy on Russia…..the CIA would have none of it! But Page wasn’t alone in this endeavor, he had lots of help.

richard burt
Burt

 

Lets move on to spy number two….Richard Burt. Almost none of you have heard of this guy, but he entered the campaign through Jeff Sessions. He was involved in writing Trump’s first foreign policy speech. In that speech, Trump put forth his desire to have better relations with Russia, which, inconceivably to many of us was roundly criticized by the main stream media. So who is Richard Burt? He’s been around government for a long time. You might want to refer back to the interview of Prouty above…..at least keep it mind as I talk about Burt. Burt graduated from Tufts University in 1971. That would make him right around 70. In 1977, he was selected as a fellow at the Naval War College. During his fellowship, he was assigned to the International Institute for Strategic Studies. Upon that appointment, he received a letter congratulating him on that “new assignment”.

stansfield turner letter

The letter was from Stansfield Turner, the then director of the CIA. Three years later he’s working at the state department, and by 1985, he’s ambassador to Germany. Right at the end of Reagan’s administration, he was made chief negotiator for the START talks with Russia, and remained under GHWB. This guys been in and around government his whole life…..I have been studying government my whole life and I had never heard of him until now. Do you realize how many people just like this are in government? Quietly working behind the scenes on life changing policy? Anyway, somehow, its not known how, he hooks up with the campaign through Jeff Sessions. This is important because Sessions is accused of recruiting Carter Page and Richard Burt. You see the stories you’ll read about Burt always….only…..mention he is a lobbyist for Alfa Bank….one of the biggest financial institutions in Russia. They never mention the bio stuff I’ve put down here. But just like Page…he’s worked in government for a long time and ends up in Russia…..with not a smidgeon of experience in banking on his resume. Then the fact that Burt knew Carter Page is evidence that Burt might have been the guy that had Page put on a list of policy advisors for Trump.

I have to stop here for just a minute. It is so clear to me now, what’s happening. Every move these spies make, seem to add to the intrigue that Trump and his campaign are colluding with the Russians and are trying to change US policy in favor of Russia. The main stream media reports it all exactly the way they have designed it to be reported. Meanwhile a very small few of us have placed it into context….again….its the subtle difference between “looking” for evidence and “creating” evidence. When the spygate story came out, the MSM was quick to point out that these guys were not spies, but investigators seeking the facts…in other words, plausible deniability. You’ve seen it before with Hillary Clinton…..every time she has been caught red handed….she has a plausible story to deny her actual intent. It’s a common practice in business, so the boss doesn’t face charges when his company is caught breaking the law.

But let’s move on, shall we? The third spy is Stefan Halper. I’ve written a lot about Halper and so have many others, but he’s another guy that’s been in and around government forever. He starts out in 1971 being placed on the US domestic policy council….an office in the White House. He’s there for two years before being placed in the OMB in 1973. In 1974 he moves to become an assistant to

stefan halper
stefan halper

the WH Chief of Staff, then moving over to the Congress to become legislative assistant to senator William Roth. Now I don’t know about you, but these moves seem odd to me. But put into the context of the interview with Fletcher Proudy above they make perfect sense. The next move for Halper, was to go into the Reagan campaign in 1980. There, a scandal occurred called “debategate”. It was discovered in 1983, that Halper had been involved in the theft of some of Jimmy Carter’s secret campaign documents. By 1983, he is deputy assistant secretary of state for political/military affairs, whatever that is! Upon leaving the Department in 1984, he remained a Senior Advisor to the Department of Defense and a Senior Advisor to the Department of Justice until 2001. At the same time he became Chairman and majority shareholder, of Palmer National Bank of Washington DC…..reportedly the bank of the CIA. I could go on, but if you’re not convinced who Stefan Halper is….let me be clear…..he works for the CIA. In fact, Halper still, to this day is being paid by the government and since 2012, all his records have been classified and sealed. One pay document was discovered in a FOIA request by a news outlet:

halper pay record

The key to understanding Halper’s involvement is to understand his relationship to Page. Two guys from very different backgrounds…who have no seeming connection meet just prior to Page’s acceptance to be on the Trump campaign. According to the NY Post the two met for over a year:

“Halper made his first overture when he met with Page at a British symposium. The two remained in regular contact for more than a year, meeting at Halper’s Virginia farm and in Washington, DC, as well as exchanging emails.”

The spying started in March of that year, but the investigation didn’t begin, as we’ve been told, until July. Once Page was placed onto the campaign, he then recommends Halper in an e-mail:

Page has tweeted a line from an email he says he sent to the campaign on July 16, 2016, regarding Halper. Halper — Page referred to him as the professor — “offered a range of possibilities regarding how he and the University might be able to help,” You can read more about this here: Trump campaign vet: Informant used me to get to Papadopoulos

The final spy in the campaign was not an American but a professor from Malta. How in the world does a professor from Malta get involved with a US presidential campaign?

mifsud
Mifsud

Yeah, I asked the same thing…..but you should see by now what’s going on. This professor is no professor. His name is Josef Misfud. He is actually part of British Intelligence…GCHQ to be specific. GCHG is the British equivalent to our NSA. GCHQ has been involved in this escapade from the very beginning. I have talked about it before, but our “five-eyes” treaty, allows Britain to spy on Americans and share that information with our intelligence agencies circumventing our 4th amendment. It’s a great system that nobody knows about that has been used for decades. That aside, Misfud’s involvement was a little more personal. I’m going to skip Mifsud’s background because its sketchy at best, but I do have high confidence that he does work within the intelligence community.

He’s another guy that the press initially reported was a Russian spy trying to influence the election. This has now been debunked, but still there are those that cling to that story. Mifsud first approached Papadopolous in March of 2016. Again, this seems to be the time the whole plot to create evidence of collusion began. After all, Papadopolous had only joined the campaign 2 weeks before. At the March meeting, Mifsud made known to Papadopolous that He might be able to acquire the deleted e-mails of Hillary Clinton. Two months later, Papadopolous boasted about this knowledge to the Australian Ambassador, who promptly reported it to American intelligence. Then, Papadopolous was lured to London, by Halper, under the guise of doing a research paper. All expenses were paid and he was given $3000. He traveled to London, met with Halper, and again, was offered access to the Hillary e-mails. Papadopolous was subsequently arrested. This episode, has been stated by the FBI as the reason for opening an investigation on Russian collusion with the Trump campaign. But if all these guys meeting with Papadopolous as early as March were working for our government…..did they find evidence or did they create evidence? Its odd that Papadopolous was just sentenced to 15 days in jail for his part. A very light sentence for a “Russian” spy. But even being light, he is an innocent man, bearing the burden for the whole plot against Trump.

George Papadopoulus

I simply have to stop here……it is so complicated that even I, as close as I am to it, just can’t understand all the connections. I really only told you this much, so you can see how all the names you have heard in the news all fit together to create one picture. That picture is that the people working in the US government before and during Trump have worked closer with the Russians than Trump could ever hope to do. And all these connections, led to…not the finding of evidence, but the actual creation of evidence to frame Trump and have him removed from office. It is and has been a relentless attack, and continues at this writing. Our only defense is to get this confusing information to the public.

Finally, I have high confidence, that Nunez, Gowdy, Goodlatte…and the rest….already know all of this and a lot more. As I said in my opening paragraph…..maybe its just too dangerous to our security to make it all public. We should notice that so far, hundreds of crimes have been committed….there is no doubt…..and no one has been indicted. Rather people have quit, retired or been fired. This only protects the system. The minute the first person is convicted and sentenced for a crime, and faces prison, the whole system would be in jeopardy. I know that many think that should happen, and maybe they would be right……all I’m saying is there’s a lot at stake in taking down our government.

The Timeline Part 1

Collusion, collusion, who has the collusion

corruptionwallpaper

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?

collusion timeline

 

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,Carter Page 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.

Who is Carter Page….Update

Fabrication of evidence

 

Carter PageI recently posted an expose on how Carter Page was actually working for the FBI in 2013 as an “undercover” employee. I have come to now believe he was on loan from U.S. Naval Intelligence, due to his newness and obscurity, not to mention his experience in Russia. I further pointed out that he was used by the FBI as a plant, into the Trump Campaign to further the narrative that Trump was colluding with Russia. In several articles I have read, the Intelligence Community was actively working against Trump in order to create evidence to be used for his removal from office. This is virtually unprecedented.

Many months ago, I reported on the man that shot the video that immediately was discovered, by CNN, of the car that ran over people in Charlottesville, VA. and was the first to be interviewed. His name was Brennan Gilmore. He was a former deputy chief of operations for the state department in the Central African Republic while a civil war was being orchestrated by the CIA. In other words he was a “spook” working for the Intelligence Community. He just happened to be in Charlottesville, standing in the right place, with his camera pointed at a slow rolling car, just before it sped up into the crowd. And before the video was even uploaded, CNN picks him out of the crowd to interview, where he provides the perfect comments about a peaceful counter protest and the racist terrorist, Trump supporters. What a shocking coincidence!

Then there was the candidate for president, Evan McMullen. He tried to block Trump in the Utah primary, and just coincidently worked for the CIA. At the same time another republican lobbyist, who released a naked picture of Melania 4 days before the election, later sold her lobbying firm and went to work for Teneo, a Clinton linked consulting firm with strong ties to the intelligence community.

And let’s not leave out what I uncovered about Stephen Paddock, the Las Vegas gunman that we know almost nothing about. He owned a plane, for three years, that was not registered with the FAA. A flight plan was never filed the entire time he owned it. When ownership was transferred, the new owner never used it either, and that new owner had an interesting background as well. There are many other examples of the Intelligence Community interfering in our election and our daily lives, but the story of Carter Page, is by far, the most egregious. Of course, most will just say ha, ha, ha, conspiracy stuff on parade! But even if these stories are simply conspiracy theories, are we to believe the Intelligence Community doesn’t have operatives working on subterfuge throughout America? Does anyone remember stories from the Vietnam War era? How FBI agents would infiltrate anti-war groups to disrupt their protests? Do you believe the FBI hasn’t infiltrated ANTIFA or BLM? We expect them to do it. But what we don’t expect is for those same spooks to infiltrate a presidential campaign in order to unseat an elected president.Spy vs Spy
Let me restate the premise of this update.

Carter Page is an employee of U.S. Naval Intelligence working undercover to CREATE evidence for the purpose of impeaching a president of the United States.

He first joined the campaign of Donald Trump as an unpaid (volunteer) advisor on national security. Someone placed him on a list of possible advisors on energy policy. He supposedly had written articles on the subject and had worked in Russia on energy issues for Merrill Lynch. By the way, we really do need to find out who put him on that list. So Carter Page is asked to be on the campaign, and asked to attend the original meeting of new staff in March of 2016. He fails to attend that meeting, and never attended any other meetings. He was on the campaign, but by all reports did nothing for it. Nobody on the campaign knew who he was or had any dealings with him. This is very important, because he is a very unimportant part of the campaign. Shortly after accepting the position, he needs to go to Russia to give a speech, a commencement speech at a school of economics, in July. This is step 1. Going to Russia in the middle of a presidential campaign.

Step 2, is the lengths he went to, to get permission from the campaign to go, which, do to his lack of importance, wouldn’t need permission. He first asks J.D. Gordon, a retired Naval officer heading up foreign policy for the campaign. Gordon tells him it would be a bad idea. He then e-mails Corey Lewandowski and Hope Hicks, the number one and two people at the campaign. Neither person knows who he is. Hicks never responds, Lewandowski says he can do what he wants, but not to represent the campaign. What you need to see, is the trail he is creating….a trail to Russia. He has to link the trip with formal permission.

Chess Wallpapers (1)

The content of the speech is step 3. Remember, this is a commencement speech. But the speech is very critical of past US foreign policy, implying that Trump would change it. It focuses on his hope that a closer relationship between the two nations might be possible with Trump in the White House. From the speech: “Washington and other Western capitals have impeded potential progress through their often hypocritical focus on ideas such as democratization, inequality, corruption, and regime change,” Page also suggested the United States should ease economic sanctions imposed on Russia following its 2014 incursion into Ukraine and Crimea. Sanction removal would be a common thread in the charges by critics of Russian collusion by Trump. The point here is that he is in Moscow speaking with authority about foreign policy while being on the Trump campaign, but yet he has no authority or authorization to do so. How does that look?

Next…step 4….He is interviewed by the Russian news agency Novosti, where he will not answer what his plans are in Moscow and would only say that he will “meet with several business leaders and academics, before he leaves on Tuesday”. Implying importance, yet being seemingly secretive. But later interviews with Russian officials, they responded that they did not know Mr. Page and were unaware of any meetings that took place. So the impression was left that Page met with “high ranking” Russian officials and it was reported that way.

spy vs spy 2

And finally, step 5…upon his return he sends an e-mail to the campaign: “I’ll send you guys a readout soon regarding some incredible insights and outreach I received from a few Russian legislators and senior members of the presidential administration here,” As if he has some vital information from people in Russia. But when interviewed by the House Intelligence Committee, he said it came from the TV he watched while in Moscow. A clearly ridiculous answer all to make it look like he is covering up something. All the things I have outlined here are found in the Trump dossier, orchestrated to create proof that a tie between Trump and the Russians existed. The way to prove it is to find out if he was working for the FBI as he did in 2013. And if that is found to be the case….its treason! Of course, as you will find in a thousand stories on line, that these very examples are proof positive that Trump colluded with Russia….just as it was all planned to do.

Who is Carter Page?

Is America under assault by its own justice department?

Carter Page

Over the course of the last few days I have tried to understand what prompted the FBI to surveille the Trump campaign. In order to understand why, the motivation is important to understand. In the course of reading countless stories, it became clear that the Trump/Russia collusion story had been hatched immediately after the DNC e-mail accounts were hacked into. Soon after the Wikileaks release of those e-mails, the IC, almost in unison announced that the accounts had been hacked by the Russians. However, the DNC refused the FBI access to their servers and they never became part of the evidence….or so we were told. This was in July of 2016. Prior to this revelation, the Russians had never been mentioned as a threat to our elections. It is plausible and understandable to believe that we are always watching what the Russians are doing….we are enemies! In 2012, a small Russian spy ring was detected and surveilled. This ring consisted of three individuals: A Russian citizen working in the US as a banker, Evgeny Buryakov, and two Russians connected to the UN Russian Mission posing as trade representatives….Igor Sporyshev and Victor Podobnyy.

Evgeny Buryakov
courtroom sketch        Evgeny Bryakov

Their mission was to gather US economic intelligence and information helpful to relieve sanctions. This is where it gets really interesting. These three Russian spies were not very good. They tried to recruit Americans that could give them American economic data. In recordings acquired by the sting by the FBI they were very sloppy. According to an article in the

guardian

Guardian written in early 2014, that I found, the person that the Russians recruited worked for the FBI. It says he was an “employee”. It does not indicate he was an agent of the FBI. It does not mention his name. But guess what? By all accounts, from the Guardian article, this FBI “employee” was Carter Page. Although the article does not mention his name, it reveals details that since have been disclosed by Mr. Page. And I keep hearing that the FBI was “looking” at Carter Page since 2013. But yet a warrant to surveille Page isn’t sought until July of 2016. Page was never a target of the FBI, until he became the tool needed to surveille the Trump campaign. In the so-called Steele dossier, it discusses the “employees’” involvement with these spies in 2013.

russian collusion

The dossier goes on to say Igor Sporyshev revealed that they recruited “a male working as a consultant in New York City.” Page worked in New York City. The Guardian article then provides another clue from that time:

In 2013, the FBI employee began providing Sporyshev with the binders containing purported industry analysis he wrote, supporting documents, and “covertly placed recording devices,” prosecutors wrote. Page wrote industry analyses.

Please read the entire Guardian article to understand this sting operation. Next, the NYT did a piece on this story. They wrote:

“To record their conversations, the F.B.I. inserted a listening device into binders that were passed to the Russian intelligence operatives during an energy conference, according to a former United States intelligence official.” Carter Page spoke at an energy conference.

The NYT goes on to say: In June 2013, the F.B.I. interviewed Mr. Page, who said he had first met Mr. Podobnyy at an energy symposium in New York earlier that year.

Then in an interview with Newsweek, Carter Page said this:

“as I explained to federal authorities prior to the January 2015 filing of this case, I shared basic immaterial information and publicly available research documents with Podobnyy…….nothing more than a few samples from the far more detailed lectures I was preparing at the time for the students” [That he wrote] he delivered at New York University in 2013.

So understand this conclusion. The employee working for the FBI is meeting and recording three Russian spies in 2013, in order to catch them spying. The undercover employee is giving them information about the energy industry. Carter Page is doing the same thing with the same 3 people at the same time. Is that the biggest coincidence of all time or what? And if there was any doubt left as to who Carter Page is….read his Bio:

Page graduated in 1993 from the United States Naval Academy; he was a Distinguished Graduate (top 10% of his class) and was chosen for the Navy’s Trident Scholar program, which gives selected officers the opportunity for independent academic research and study. During his senior year at the Naval Academy, he worked as a researcher for the House Armed Services Committee. He served in the Navy for five years, including a tour in western Morocco as an intelligence officer for a United Nations peacekeeping mission. In 1994, he completed a master of arts degree in National Security Studies at Georgetown University. After leaving the Navy, Page completed a fellowship at the Council on Foreign Relations and in 2001 he received an MBA from New York University. In 2000, at the age of 29, he became a vice president of Merrill Lynch in Moscow.

What a good break!

I believe from this evidence I can conclude, with certainty, that Carter Page was and still is working for the FBI or for some other intelligence agency, under cover. He was not caught up in the prosecution of the Russian spies because he was part of the investigating team. It’s strange that after scouring the web, there is no information concerning just how Carter Page got to be on the Trump campaign team. Who placed his name on a list of possible advisors? This would also be an important thing to know. But as near as I can tell he joins the team in late June of 2016, right around the time the DNC e-mails were released. Almost too shortly after he joins the campaign, he goes to great lengths to seek permission to travel to Russia. No one seems to know him, but he e-mails the campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, and several other high-ranking campaign officials. They tell him he can do what he wants, but not as a member of the campaign. He then goes to Moscow to give a speech, but also meets with a high ranking Russian official. He openly admits all this. When you use the filter that he is working for the FBI, you begin to see, that in the hundreds of articles on-line, he is  trying to link the Trump campaign to the Russians. You see everything in a different light. Every move he made seemed to try to create this illusion. Then when he’s asked to testify, he admits everything but decries it is all harmless and he did nothing wrong. When I look at the events and his remarks in this context, it is easy to see a totally different picture emerge. I guess you can say it worked as it was designed, because you can find a thousand articles on line using Carter Page as a link between Trump and Russia. Just look at what Adam Schiff released on November 8, 2017: the top Democrat on the House intelligence panel, Adam Schiff quoted from an e-mail from Carter Page to the Trump Campaign “I’ll send you guys a readout soon regarding some incredible insights and outreach I received from a few Russian legislators and senior members of the presidential administration here,” You see, Schiff is trying to say Page is a Russian spy and he has information for Trump from the Russians. But change the point of view, and you see how that e-mail may have been sent to actually be used to prove Trump/Russian collusion, where there was none. He’s making it look like the campaign is working with Russia. Another crumb on the trail Page is trying to create. Now run all that through the filter that Page is working for the IC to implicate Trump in Russian collusion. Folks, I have read the accounts of conspiracists decrying a silent coups, but if my conclusions are accurate, then that’s exactly what’s going on here. If Carter Page, indeed works for the FBI, and was involved with creating the Trump dossier, as I believe he was, then this story takes on a whole new form. Somebody knows that Carter Page worked under cover. But who? If that fact could be determined, then this whole scandal becomes treasonous.

justice dept

Another piece to this puzzle is in other accounts from Carter Page. He claimed he spent numerous hours at the Trump Tower working for the campaign. Yet know one remembers him being there. He didn’t have a badge to get in, had no space or office to go to, no scheduled meetings….nothing. Then why would he offer that tidbit? You see the FISA law is pretty specific as to how a warrant can be used to surveille Americans. 50 US code of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) U.S. Code › Title 50 › Chapter 36 › Subchapter I, defines something called “any person”:

B) Any person pursuant to the direction of an intelligence service or network of a foreign power, knowingly engages in any other clandestine intelligence activities for or on behalf of such foreign power, which activities involve or are about to involve a violation of the criminal statutes of the United States.

 Notice that the law is very broad when it defines “any person”. Carter Page would have been the best person to use for a surveillance warrant. Further, if Page hung out at the Trump Tower as he claimed, would it be a leap to believe that the warrant could have included the Trump Tower? I think not. Then recall the unmasking that was done by Susan Rice and many others.

trump tower

As much as I simply hate to do it, I submit to you, that there is a better than even chance that Carter Page, while working for the IC was planted in the Trump campaign to not only create the means for spying on the campaign and later the president, but also to create the evidence of collusion in order to have him impeached. Now I can’t possibly put in your mind all the things I have read and learned in order to glean these conclusions. And maybe I haven’t explained it well enough to justify these conclusions. I can only repeat…..when you read a story about Carter Page, think of him as an intelligence officer and the story will take on a new meaning.

I hope the memo written by Congressman Devin Nunes, and recently released, is just the beginning. In my view, Nunes is a hero and may be the Thomas Paine of our generation. But there needs to be more. There are so many people in our government that are fighting us, fixing America, it will be an almost insurmountable task to stop these people. At this point in history…it is imperative that we hold the House and pick up the 9 seats we need to have a super majority in the Senate. If we can’t do that, our revolution may be over.

 

Russian Collusion, Part 2

Playing favorites

 

Chess-pieces-011

In part 1 of this story I relayed the actions of Hillary Clinton in vetoing the sale of GM’s Opel division to a Russian oligarch named Oleg Deripaska.

deripaska
 

Deripaska

 

I believe it is important to understand the interest she took in this deal, since she claimed that she took no interest in the Uranium One deal. At the same time a dozen Russian oligarchs own businesses in America from professional sporting teams, steel mills, stakes in Facebook and Twitter, industrial parks and music studios. No interest was taken in these acquisitions…..but oddly the sale of a European car division was blocked by the secretary of state.

 

Also in Part 1 of Russian Collusion, I told you about a Russian oligarch named Oleg Deripaska. Most likely more than anyone but policy wonks, ever wanted to know. But to understand Russian collusion you have to get a full grasp of just how things operate in that system. I have written several times about that system, so I won’t rehash it here, but suffice it to say, it is an oligarchy…not a republic, not communism, not a market based system…..an oligarchy. An oligarchy is defined as “rule by a few”. These men have no titles, no government position, or no army…..but what they do have is boatloads of cash. Billions and billions. There are some 93 or so oligarchs in Russia, according to Forbes worth, collectively, north of $412 billion dollars, a full third of all the wealth in Russia. These oligarchs determine the policies of the Russian government. But, please, understand, Russia does not care about ideology. They don’t care if Iran has a nuke, they don’t care if Venezuelans are starving, and they don’t care if a democrat or republican is in the WH. They only care about making more money and protecting their sovereignty so they can do that.

vekselberg
 

Vekselberg

 

 

Now let me introduce you to one of the biggest oligarchs in Russia…..Viktor Vekselberg. Reportedly the 4th richest man in Russia, Vekselberg, like the rest of the oligarchs made his money after the Soviet break-up in 1991. Like Deripaska, he made a lot of money in Aluminum. His company, SUAL was one of the top aluminum producers in Russia, RUSAL, Deripaska’s aluminum company, being the largest. In March of 2007, RUSAL and SUAL merged, forming the largest aluminum/alumina company in the world. At that Merger, Vekselberg became the non-executive chairman, while Deripaska retained owner status. By the way, I also find it strange and gratifying when parts of other things I have studied line up with new posts. there was a third company that became part of RUSAL in this merger……GLENCORE! You probably don’t remember GLENCORE, so let me refresh your memory. GLENCORE is the raw material marketer created by Marc Rich…..yes the Marc Rich that was pardoned by Bill Clinton and who I wrote about in INTO THE WEEDS 10David Simonds Glencore 13.05.12But I digress. Not long after….in December of that year, RUSAL acquired a 25% stake in NORILSK Nickel, one of the largest mining businesses in the world. Deripaska’s plan was to create the largest diversified metals company in the world. Vekselberg didn’t agree with the purchase, or holding it during the meltdown. Again Deripaska had to leverage much of his business to borrow the reported $15.7 billion dollars to buy the 25% plus 1 share stake. Look again at the date…this is just before the world’s economy fell apart. Deripaska was in trouble with his debt. In October of 2008, the Russian state bank, VEB Bank, loaned Deripaska $4.5 billion to pay to Western banks. This would allow RUSAL to stay in Russian hands. Vekselberg wanted out of RUSAL, but it was complicated. RUSAL’s interest in NORILSK is what I’m told is “blocking stock”. They can’t make decisions, but they can stop certain things from happening. If Vekselberg sold his RUSAL stock (some 15.8%), RUSAL may forfeit its blocking status. Another oligarch is trying to gain control over NORILSK Nickel, Vladimir Potanin. Plus, Vekselberg is also very unhappy with RUSAL suspending shareholder agreements and dividend payments. So almost from day one Vekselberg and Deripaska didn’t get along….and by all outward appearances, Deripaska was pushing Vekselberg’s face into the dirt, ignoring him and vetoing many of his decisions. While all this was happening in Russia, in May of 2008, Cisco (the software giant) was answering charges from congress that it provided technology to China to track and censor its citizens. Multiple law suits were filed against Cisco for providing this kind of technology to a totalitarian country. I only mention this, because it will become pertinent later. My guess is Vekselberg wanted to ruin Deripaska without destroying RUSAL. He would need help to achieve this. That help came from Hillary Clinton, in blocking his bid to acquire Opel, but it wouldn’t come cheap. Through a series of very complicated and illegal bank transfers, which is commonly called money laundering, millions of dollars were diverted from the Russian funds provided by Rusnano, allocated for the SKOLKOVO project, which Vekselberg controlled, wound up in a Citibank account controlled by the Clinton Foundation. Incidentally, Rusnano is a 10 billion dollar private equity firm completely controlled by Putin and the Russian government.

SKOLKOVO Technology Center. Moscow, Russia

 

 

I have written about SKOLKOVO, but it’s worth restating what it is, because it relates to what I wrote above about Cisco. SKOLKOVO is a city close to Moscow. It was to be transformed into a technology center, hosting entrepreneurs from all over Russia to partner with American and European high tech companies to develop their own Silicon Valley. It was the brain child of Dmitry Medvedev, the Russian president. The project was hatched in November of 2009. In June of 2010, Medvedev traveled to Silicon Valley, hosted by Hillary Clinton to meet with CEOs of American Tech companies and to tour Cisco. Shortly there after Cisco announced it would commit 1 billion dollars to the SKOLKOVO project. 28 companies took part….some of the biggest names in American tech. The FBI, the DOJ, and the Army, all warned Clinton that some of this technology had duel use aspects that could be transferred into military purposes. The warnings were ignored. Several projects at SKOLKOVO developed weapons. Once again, we give our enemies the means to challenge us. But that’s another story. The story here, that no one ever investigated when we sold technology to China and North Korea in the 90s, is how much the Clintons got for the technology. skolkovo17 of the 28 companies donated openly to the Clinton Foundation. It’s hard to know exactly how much because of the way the foundation reports, but it’s between 15 and 25 million dollars. It’s also important to mention here that, at the same time, John Podesta received 35 million from the same source, Rusnano through Metcombank. Again, that’s a whole other story. You can read that here: Into The Weeds 11
The screen shots below were acquired in secret from a Russian bureaucrat that I found here: Conservative Read These documents, translated from the Russian language, layout the complicated series of bank transfers to get the money from Viktor Vekselberg to the Clinton Foundation without a trail….but there’s always a trail somewhere. By the way, Vekselberg totally owns Metcombank, a small Russian bank in the Ural Mountains, from where the transfers originated. In 2013, it was discovered that $55 million was missing from the SKOLKOVO project funds. The police raided the SKOLKOVO offices. Of course some underlings were arrested and the money was never found…a very, very common occurrence in Russia. Exactly how much of that money ended up in a Clinton bank account is unknown, but I’m going to guess it was a bit more than the 50k that Deripaska gave.

metcom1metcom 3

Now it’s impossible to determine if the millions were payment for hurting Deripaska or for selling American technology, but either way, she got the money, and she did what she did. I prefer the former because more recent developments show some details. In 2012, Vekselberg quit his post at RUSAL after not attending a single board meeting, during the entire year. He then filed a lawsuit against Deripaska in a London court. Deripaska was forced to make an accounting and interests and assets had to be distributed. I certainly don’t know all the details….its way above my ability or my pay grade to dig any deeper. But I can report that both men are still alive, which in Russia is unusual.

So did Hillary break the law? As always, there is no smoking gun, but the pattern repeats itself again and again. It’s hard not to see criminality in her actions. I can only imagine that if I could find all this information on the open internet, what could be found if I had access to the documents and witnesses that an honest justice department would have? And that’s the point, isn’t it? An honest justice department. I feel like we, the people, are dragging the law enforcers kicking and screaming, to do the right thing. Will they?

The Corruption Continues Part 5

The Rest of the Story

 

nuclear power plant

In my continuing research on Uranium One, I have come across a lot of new information. I went back and re-read my first 4 parts, and still stand by all of it, but I do have new details that seem to be important in understanding the criminality that took place. This story is very complicated. Sorry for the length, and it may seem disjointed….there just are a lot of moving parts, that all connect to a culture of mass corruption in our government.

rosatom logo

The first thing to consider is just what is Rosatom. Rosatom is the fairly, newly, created wholly, controlled nuclear agency in Russia. It controls some 360 businesses and research units of which the American subsidiary, TENEX, is one. It produces in excess of $300 billion in revenue a year to the Russian government. It currently is constructing 40% of all new reactors in the world, 40% of all enriched uranium and 17% of the world’s nuclear fuel. In other words, Rosatom is responsible for a huge chunk of the Russian economy. I have learned from several sources, that Uranium is running out in Russia and one of Rosatom’s strategic goals was to increase their availability to the world’s uranium supply….as selling enriched uranium is a huge part of what Rosatom does. Thus the purchase of Uranium One was a strategic move to control more uranium production. I firmly believe acquiring Uranium One, was much more about the Kazakh mines than it was about the American supply, but either way it was about controlling more.

If I might digress for just a minute…..everything in Russia is corrupt by our standards. What I have come to understand is that Russians think very differently about economics and law than we do. We have learned from childhood that the rule of law is of the highest consideration when doing anything. We call it playing within the rules. We fully expect that contracts must be honored, and if they are not, we have a legal recourse to receive a remedy. We have to understand that is not how business is done in Russia or any of their satellites, like Kazakhstan. Who has the most money and power makes the rules. If you don’t like it you could die. They will pay to get what they want, and if they can’t get it, they will use whatever method necessary to get what they want. They put on a charade when working with the West that they are law abiding, but it’s just for show. They firmly believe we are weak and our laws are simply obstacles to work around, using money and intimidation. Anyone working with the Russians must understand this difference. And if you believe for a minute that Frank Giustra, Bill Clinton, or any of the others working with them didn’t understand this, then you miss a large portion of what happened. A close friend of mine is from Russia and is in business. He confirmed that the Russian government operates like a mob family. There is a hierarchy, run by the Don….Putin, the oligarchs are the lieutenants. They run things how they want, using the laws they make to punish their enemies. If that doesn’t work they simply put them in prison or take them out permanently. My friend told me, that anyone working with a Russian, should expect bribes, kickbacks and extortion. This is how normal business is conducted. Russians are simply amoral criminals.

oligarchs

They are “governed” by a myriad of what we call oligarchs. These are the billionaires that were created immediately after the collapse of the Soviet Union. It’s not complicated to understand how this happened. Boris Yeltzen was elected after Gorbechev left. The economy had collapsed and Yeltzen was trying desperately to save it. He pushed for a new free market system. But these kinds of changes take decades to implement…..he couldn’t wait. So he immediately privatized almost all of Russian industry. In communism, the state owns everything. So who would own it? The stated goal was for the people to be able to buy into companies….not unlike our private stock market. He issued vouchers to every citizen that they could use to buy stock. Very quickly after this, a black market was created. The vouchers were being gobbled up for cash by a few, shall we say, “Entrepreneurs” . Many of these investors were criminals that had acquired large sums of cash illegally. They soon learned that they could use their ill gotten gain to acquire an entire industry. After just a few years, Russia’s entire economy was in the hands of a few rich men, which now became the oligarchs. They had accumulated great power by being able to control large swaths of the economy. This was the environment Bill Clinton faced during his tenure as president. He understood Russia and their system better than most. He made a lot of friends there during the 90s.

Back to Rosatom.

tenex logo

If you will recall in 2008-2009, the FBI had opened an investigation into the dealings of TENEX, the subsidiary of Rosatom in America. An employee of TENEX, Vadim Mikerin, had been discovered extorting his customers. This was discovered when an American he was extorting went to the FBI. His name was William Campbell. He owned a small lobbying firm that was hired in 2008 to lobby the American government to buy more uranium from Russia. He contracted with Rosatom for $50,000 per month. Mikerin extorted Campbell by telling him he would send half that money to an offshore bank account in Belize and Switzerland. Campbell went to the FBI. He became an informant to gather information concerning the corruption. This investigation continued for another 5 years, and it is unknown whether this investigation by the FBI into Russian corruption was ever made known to CFIUS while it was considering the Russian purchase of stock in Uranium One in 2009 and again in 2013. You can read more about the case here:   This is important because if Rosatom, through its TENEX subsidiary, was conducting illegal acts in its dealings with the uranium industry, why would this not be made known to CFIUS. Remember that the DOJ is part of CFIUS. It begs the question of why? Did CFIUS know and ignore the corruption, or was it quashed by the DOJ or the FBI under Comey’s control? Either way it points to massive corruption or incompetence at the highest levels. I, for one, am not buying any incompetence. I believe there lack of knowledge was purposeful…..that they knew, and chose to ignore it so money from Rosatom and Uranium One investors could continue to flow into the Giustra and Clinton Foundations. Just how you prove such an allegation is difficult. In my next post, I will lay out a pattern of corruption by Hillary Clinton that leads me to my conclusion. Only by seeing the pattern, can you prove just how criminal the entire Uranium One episode was. Without seeing this pattern, good luck proving any crimes. For every apparent crime, there is a counter explanation that can and will be made to defend the action. It’s an old business tactic called “plausible deniability” and is used almost daily in Washington. It has been reported that the criminal behavior and ultimate investigation and conviction of Mikerin was separate from the Uranium One acquisition. You can read about the FBI investigation into Mikerin here. Never mind that TENEX was bribing and extorting its customers, but are they separate issues? In my post, INTO THE WEEDS 11, I outlined John Podesta’s involvement in a company called Joule.

john podesta

He was given 75,000 shares of stock and a seat on the board of directors. He served on that board with Reuben Vardanyan, an oligarch in Russia and a co-founder of the newly created, at the time, SKOLKOVO project. Skolkovo was an attempt to acquire US technology. Also seated on that board was Anatoly Chubais, the head of Rosatom. So here we have John Podesta, Anatoly Chubais, and Reuben Vardanyan all seated at the table of a company that received $35 million dollars from the Russian government as a “grant” and a mysterious shell company, Klein, Ltd, set up by the same agents that created Joule paying Podesta’s group, Center for American Progress, millions. All while Hillary Clinton is pushing 17 American tech companies to invest in Skolkovo. Coincidently, all 17 American companies “donating” some $25 million to the Clinton Foundation. By the way, in case you haven’t read the background on Joule in my piece INTO THE WEEDS 11, Joule is an energy company based in New Jersey.

Tony Podesta

You see, it is one of those so called front companies that Russia uses to defeat our laws.
In a sort of side story to all of this is the “Magnitsky Act”. Its a long story so I won’t relay it here, but you can read about it here. Tony Podesta, John’s brother and owner of the lobbying firm,The Podesta Group, Contracted with Sberbank, the largest bank in Russia, to lobby congress to repeal this sanctions act against Russia. Watch this blockbuster video describing The Podesta Groups involvement in Uranium One. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gVkCbHe-Dm8

The Mikerin episode was reported as an attempt for Russia to gain more business in America selling uranium. The question still remains….was it connected to the Uranium One purchase? It defies credulity to believe otherwise. Rosatom put all the pieces in place. Starting as far back as 1993 with the sale, to the US of its uranium assets, all the way up to the acquisition of Uranium One. Bribes, extortion, money laundering in order to secure control over the US uranium purchases by American energy companies. And at the heart of the corruption is John Podesta, his brother Tony who was the lobbyist working for Rosatom in America, And Bill and Hillary Clinton using their foundation as a cash register. You may have read that during the period of time in question….2009-2013, $145 million flowed into the Clinton Foundation from undisclosed sources, purportedly from sources connected to the Uranium One purchase. Some of this is a guess, but all evidence points in that direction. As I reported in another part of this continuing saga, Frank Giustra and Bill Clinton created the CGEP in 2007. (Clinton-Giustra Enterprise Partnership) It was established by Frank Giustra and two aids to the former president, Eric Nonacs and Bruce Lindsey, both employees of the Clinton Foundation. On the Clinton Foundation website it states the purpose of this enterprise: “combining the best of non-profit and for-profit approaches to create new enterprises that capitalize market opportunities to generate social impact by addressing existing market gaps in developing country supply or distribution chains.” The only for profit goal was for Bill and Hillary Clinton. Giustra pledged $100 million to this enterprise. But the CGEP was simply a money laundering mechanism. You see, US law, and an agreement Hillary made with the US government when she became SOS, declares that donors to the Foundation must be disclosed. The CGEP was chartered in Canada where no such law exists and Hillary believed didn’t apply to her agreement. This allowed the CGEP to accept millions and millions from undisclosed foreign donors. Then CGEP is free to donate to the Clinton Foundation in the US, only disclosing that the donation came from the CGEP in Canada. Mission accomplished, money successfully laundered. I suppose we will never know who all the donors were to the CGEP, but would you like to take a wild guess that there might be a few Russians on the list? Let’s now take a look at some of the donors that we know about, according to Clinton Foundation records. But first, know this. The Clinton Foundation has reworked and resubmitted their tax returns for this period several times. Many donors were undisclosed or under reported by millions. One of those donors, APCO Worldwide lobbied on the US government, on behalf of Rosatom/TENEX while giving money to the Clinton Global Initiative Fund, and arm of the CF. Records show APCO donated $50K when it was actually $1 million. How we can ever know for sure who or how much was donated is anybody’s guess.

Pinchuk

First we have Viktor Pinchuk. A Ukrainian Oligarch, the second richest man in Ukraine, reported to have given $25 million to the CF. A close friend of Bill and Hillary, they each attended the others birthday parties. He is the owner of Interpipe, the largest steel producer in Ukraine. He has defied US sanctions and sold steel to Iran. Sound familiar? This is what Bill’s friend Marc Rich did for a living. It’s another similar story. Everybody knows he is doing it, but if you give enough to the Clinton Foundation, $25 million, the SOS will simply look the other way. Here is more information on Viktor Pinchuk: https://www.rt.com/usa/243017-ukraine-clinton-foreign-donors/

Lasry

Marc Lasry. Mark Lasry is the current owner of the Milwaukee Bucks, which he purchased for $500 million. He also owns Avenue Capital, a 12 billion dollar hedge fund that nets Lasry $280 million a year. He is a billionaire and huge donor to the Democratic Party and personal friends with Bill and Hillary. He also has many Russian friends. Lasry was recently linked to Alimzhan Tokhtakhounov, who is a known Russian mobster, currently on the run for gambling and money laundering. Seems like Lasry loves to gamble and play for millions. Lasry has unlimited access to Hillary Clinton and has donated at least $100,000 to the foundation and has raised millions for her campaigns.

Vekselberg

Viktor Vekselberg, according to CF reporting, Mr. Vekselberg, and his companies donated over a quarter million dollars to the CF. In June of 2010, Bill Clinton met with Vekselberg, in Russia, along with several other Russian oligarchs…..reasons unknown. Shortly after that meeting, Bill Clinton gave a speech in Moscow where he was paid $500,000. My educated guess is that Bill Clinton’s involvement with Vekselberg has everything to do with an American technology transfer to Russia. Vekselberg was placed in charge of the Skolkovo project; I’ve spoken about several times. Back in March of this same year, Hillary invited Medvedev to Silicon Valley, In July; Vekselberg announces Cisco will commit 1 billion dollars to the Skolkovo project. 3 months later Cisco pays Bill Clinton $260,000 for a speech. Cisco also donates $1 million to the CF. You can read more about Hillary’s involvement with Vekselberg here: http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/emails-show-clinton-ties-to-russian-oligarch-under-investigation/article/2601514

Prokhorov is another Russian oligarch who owns Renaissance Capital, the firm that paid the $500,000 for Bill Clinton’s speech in Moscow in June of 2010. I might add that the founding CEO of Renaissance was Michael Madden. Madden left Renaissance in 2007, when Prokhorov paid $500 million for the venture. Oddly enough, Madden now is the CEO of Teneo Capital, the company that works hand and glove with the CF.

Lukas Lundin, in 2010, congress passed the Dodd-Frank reform bill. Within that law was a provision for mining companies in the Congo to respect human rights through a new certification process.

Although then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton visited the Congo in 2009, she unexpectedly delayed implementation of a landmark “certification” program designed to assure human rights were respected by mining companies like Lundin’s in Africa. Lundin donated $5 million to the CF.

Telfer

Ian Telfer, chairman of Uranium One and close friend of Frank Giustra donated several million to the CF while the Russian purchase was being made. ¾ of his donations of $8.6 million came through his family foundation….Fernwood, which was not disclosed. When this was discovered the CF said they made a mistake and would refile once again. The Clinton-Giustra Enterprise Partnership further donated another $33 million to the CF that came as a “bundle” with undisclosed donors. We may never know where all the money came from.

Finally, I would like to add one more large piece to this puzzle. The so-called “Trump Dossier”. Just how does this figure into all this corruption. About a year before the election of 2016, The Washington Free Beacon hired a company to do candidate research on the front running republican candidates. The company they hired was Fusion GPS. By April of 2016, it was clear Trump would win the nomination and that research was stopped. In that same month, Fusion GPS was hired by a law firm named Perkins-Cole to do opposition research on Donald Trump. Fusion GPS then hired a man named Christopher Steele.

aaaaa
Steele

Mr. Steele is a former MI 6 employee that worked in Russia and had many contacts in the Russian government. He produced a report that became to be known as the Trump Dossier. This report contained information about Trump’s business and personal dealings with Russia. It was selacious and disturbing in its content. The problem with the report, was nothing in it could be verified. The report was presented to Marc Elias, an attorney for the DNC, days before the election. Fusion was paid some $9 million for this work by Perkins Cole, who worked directly for the DNC and the Hillary campaign. After the election the report was leaked to the press. On a side note, I discovered, that the plan to tie Trump to the Russians was hatched at the DNC at the same time to attempt to remove him from office. The press, even though they had the report in November, did not publish it. Nothing in the report could be verified, and to their credit did not make it public. That is until a small website decided to publish it on January 10, 2017. After it came out, the rest of the media jumped on board. OK, so that’s the background. Before the dossier was made public, sometime in December of 2016, it came into the possession of John McCain. He then passed it on to the FBI as secret information from British Intelligence. Now this next part is very, very important. First I would like to say, that this cannot be independently verified. It’s a conclusion, but it is the only conclusion that can be made based on all the facts that are known. The FBI used that unverified and untrue report to acquire a FISA warrant in order to conduct surveillance on the Trump Tower and of the president elect. Stop and think about that. The FBI conducting surveillance on the president of the United States, and a court gave them a warrant to do it, based on a report that was merely made up! But Ken, you would say, what does this have to do with Uranium One? In two words….not much! But I am attempting to clarify a connection between Hillary and the Russians. Someone in that crime syndicate in Russia, at the behest of the Clintons, provided false information on Donald Trump that could potentially remove him from office. When we consider the point that CFIUS signed off on the Russian purchase of Uranium One, we must look at this warrant that was obtained by the FBI. If the DOJ could be persuaded to do this, is it then, a huge leap that they would hold back the Mikerin investigation, and then sign off on the sale of Uranium One? You see, Hillary was supposed to win. I venture to speculate that Clinton was selling anything she could, to create a fortune and a dynasty. She was willing to work with the Russians in any way to get what she wanted. Her and Bill knew who the Russians were, they knew what they could do for her….and she didn’t care. American Uranium, American technology, American law….none of it mattered…..they would keep the money flowing no matter what.

 

The Corruption Continues, Part 2 The building of an empire

The creation of Uranium One

gold mine
New Kleinfontein gold mine,     South Africa

In Part 1 of this series, I laid out the Kazakhstan connection to the Uranium One scandal. You can read Part 1 here.  Let me pick up the story from there.

 

Two months after the illegal sale of Kazakh mining rights to Frank Giustra, another Kazakh official died. This time it was Zamanbek Nurkadilov. He was head of government’s emergency situations department. It was portrayed as another suicide. He apparently shot himself in the chest twice, just before shooting himself in the head. At least that was the official government explanation. The story that followed made it out to be a politically motivated death. In March of 2004, 8 months earlier, Nurkadilov spoke out in opposition to the corruption in the administration…..that means he was criticizing the president. But I must say, I believe this has more to do with the meeting between Ablyazov and Clinton, and the sale of the Kazakh mining rights than with the presidential corruption.  Look at this account from a middle Asian website called Registan.net:

“Nurkadilov had served as a parliamentary deputy, administrative head for Almaty and the surrounding region, and head of the government’s emergency situations department. In March 2004 he suddenly accused the administration of President Nursultan Nazabayev of massive corruption, and was gathering information on the first family to support allegations that they had illegally acquired many state properties and enterprises.”

Seems like Mr. Nurkadilov might have known what was going on. For him to be killed so soon after that acquisition, to me is suspect. This is how these guys play. Anyway, just a little intrigue for your enjoyment. I would like to diverge from the timeline for just a couple of paragraphs:

For over a year, opponents of Donald Trump have tried to link the president to Russia. That somehow he stole the election colluding with Russia. Other than there being no evidence of any of it, the indoctrination of the rubes on the left has been complete. Sadly, none of these leftist followers will read my blog or seek the truth for themselves. The Clinton’s, the Russians, and organized crime have been in business together for a long time. As I was doing this research I asked myself, why did Giustra take Clinton with him to Kazakhstan? Why did he believe Clinton could help him? Most media accounts have concluded that He spoke favorably about Nazarbayev, just before the 2005 election. Really?  Then there’s that meeting with Ablyazov. What we do know now, is Ablyazov is a big time criminal. I only outlined a tiny fraction of his criminal activities. In 2009 he fled Kazakhstan for London. He found himself on trial for embezzlement of BTA bank. The trial was the biggest in England’s history. Just before his sentencing on just one charge, he fled, to become a fugitive. A year later he was captured in Nice, France and put in a French jail where he would face extradition to Kazakhstan. After nearly 4 years of delay the French high court refused to extradite Ablyazov, and set him free. Its amazing what money can buy. He went on trial in Kazakhstan anyway in absentia and was convicted and sentenced to 20 years in prison. You can read about those two trials here and here.
But still the question remains: why take Clinton? Seems like Clinton knows a lot of people. Some of them not so savory. Take Grigori Loutchansky.

Loutchansky
Grigori Loutchansky

Mr. Loutchansky was invited to an intimate fund-raiser dinner with Bill Clinton back in 1993. He is a notorious Russian mobster who happens to own a bank…..do tell! Nordex in Vienna tied to Russian money laundering for years is run by Loutchansky. He has flown with Bill Clinton and Al Gore and was even invited to a Washington DNC fund raiser, but backed out in fear he would be arrested when coming to the United States. One connection to our story, is that Loutchansky is a known trafficker of nuclear materials and nuclear technology.

vekselberg
Victor Vekselberg

Then there’s Viktor Vekselberg. Although a story for another time, Mr. Vekselberg started the technology city of Skolkovo in Russia. Created during the “Russian Reset”, Skolkovo was an attempt to encourage American technology companies to invest in Russia……and they did! Billions of dollars and untold technology flew into Skolkovo. If that isn’t stupid enough, 17 of the 28 companies that invested there, donated up to $25 million to the Clinton Foundation….you can draw your own conclusions. You also can read more about Skolkovo here.

 

I could go on, but you get the picture. Bill Clinton knows the right people, or should I say the people who can make him money. This is what Frank Guistra needed. A connection to someone who was willing to sell him what he wanted….Bill Clinton earned his 31 million dollars.

But now, its time to get back to our timeline.

Uranium 1 timeline

Just how was Uranium One created. We’re now in early 2003. A man well versed in Mining is struggling with his 100+-year-old gold mine in South Africa. The mine (pictured at the top of the page) is the New Kleinfontein gold mine, and the man is Neal Froneman

neal froneman
The gold is almost gone and Froneman is about out of money. He takes what he has left and begins to convert the gold mine to a uranium mine. He controls many miles of land that contain uranium reserves. Another South African Mining company notices and a merger takes place. Aflease Gold and Froneman’s company merge under Aflease’s banner. Froneman remains at the helm, his gamble pays off. 3000 miles away in Australia, another struggling uranium company has been trying to open a uranium mine and processing facility called Southern Cross. They finally manage to get all the government approvals and the “Honeymoon” mine is reopened in 2004. Aflease has been looking around to expand its position in the world in uranium. They tender an offer for Southern Cross and in 2005 merge with Aflease to form a new company called SXR Uranium One. This is only a few months before Guistra makes his deal with Ablyazov. Just about immediately, talks begin between Aflease and Giusta’s Uraisa. Less than two months later in February of 2006, SXR buys Urasia……are you ready….for $3.1 BILLION! The new company formed is Uranium One.

The new Uranium One is now a Canadian Company listed on the Canadian and South African stock exchanges. It is now the 4th largest uranium producer in the world. Ian Telfer, a close confidant and friend of Frank Giustra is placed at the helm. Froneman remains in charge in South Africa. Over the next three years, Telfer and Uranium One directors will donate $8.6 million to the Clinton Foundation.

In the same month that Giustra seals the deal with SXR, . the still head of Kazakhstan’s nuclear energy, flies to Chappaqua to meet with Frank Giustra and Bill Clinton at his home. Both Clinton and Giustra deny the meeting took place then recant when evidence is produced. Boy, would I loved to have been a fly on the wall in that meeting.
About a year later the wheels are starting to come off in Kazakhstan. President Nazarbayev is pressuring Ablyazov to sell his shares of BTA Bank to the state. When he refuses, Nazarbayev nationalizes BTA and just takes it. Ablyazov flees to London. Not long after, Mukhtar Dzhakishev is arrested and Uranium One is getting worried

There are rumblings within Kazakhstan that the sale of those assets to Giustra was illegal. Now…this next part is important: All our media reports say that Hillary “signed” off on the sale to Russia, but this is what she was needed for and what the $31 million dollars bought. The US State Department, in December of 2009, pressures Kazakhstan to ok the deal, in writing. However, it transpired……they complied. It has been reported that Tim Phillips, a close advisor to Hillary Clinton and DNC operative met with Kazakh officials and made it clear that large DNC contributors were anxious to get this deal done. I would guess that a lot of money crossed some very important hands.

In my next installment, we will learn how Uranium One acquired American uranium and how the Russians got it.
