Curiousor and Curiousor – Natalia Veselnitskaya Pictured With Obama Officals in DC on June 14th, 2016…

This is oddly interesting.
( h/t GWP ) At the heart of the current media Russian narrative du jour is a story about Donald Trump Jr. meeting with a Russian attorney named Natalia Veselnitskaya.  That meeting took place on June 9th 2016 in Trump Tower.
Now it is discovered via video and images, that only 5 days later, June 14th 2016, Ms. Veselnitskaya was a guest of former Obama administration Russian Ambassador Michael McFaul in Washington DC for a House of Representatives hearing on U.S. Policy Toward Putin’s Russia.  [Video HERE – and Video HERE]

Ms. Natalia Veselnitskaya is pictured seated in the front row directly behind former U.S. Ambassador to Russia Mr. Michael McFaul at the House Foreign Affairs Committee. This is June 14th, 2016, five days after the reported meeting with Donald Trump Jr.

Link to Ambassador McFaul’s testimony (confirming date) is HERE

It should be noted that Ambassador McFaul was very publicly discussing the ‘Muh Russia’ conspiracy narrative in the media and appeared on numerous NBC and MSNBC broadcasts during the 2016 campaign, and immediately after the election.
Additionally, it was Michael McFaul who was the architect of the Obama/Clinton “Russian Reset”, that eventually led McFaul to becoming the Ambassador to Russia (NYT Link).
Ambassador Michael McFaul immediately caused quite a bit of controversy while in Russia as he indulged with various anti-Putin operatives.

Michael McFaul, the U.S. ambassador in Moscow from 2012-2014, was accused by Russian state television of seeking to orchestrate the overthrow of President Vladimir Putin after hosting opposition activists and Kremlin critics at the embassy in his second day on the job.  (Politico Link)

Another example of McFaul’s in-your-face antagonism is HERE.
On the heels of the 2011 WikiLeaks State Department Cables release (example below) Ambassador McFaul was kicked out of Russia:

(C) On January 14, National Security Council Senior Director for Russia Michael McFaul met with Boris Nemtsov and Vladimir Milov of the Solidarity Movement, Grigoriy Bovt of the political party Right Cause, and Vladimir Ryzhkov, former head of the now defunct Russia’s Republican Party and professor at Moscow’s Higher School of Economics. All four leaders view Barack Obama as a highly pragmatic president focused on external cooperation with Russia, but supposedly not willing to pressure the Russian government for greater political freedom. President Medvedev is not seen as a viable alternative to Prime Minister Putin, who they believe will likely retake the Presidency in 2012. This, according to them, will ensure that a corrupt and unresponsive government continues to run Russia. They agreed that the aim of the political opposition over the next two years should be to prevent the return of Putin to the presidency. According to them, however, given Putin’s control over society only an emergency situation could bring about his fall from grace.
[…]  McFaul opined that “de-Putinization” must come from within Russia, from a focus on civil education to broaden demands within society for increased freedom. Though the President may not be as vocal about his support for civil society within Russia as opposition members in Russia might prefer, McFaul made clear to this group, all of whom he has known throughout his career, that the President fully supports democratic reform in Russia. All agreed that dramatic change in the Russian political landscape would not take place in the near future.

It should also be noted that Ambassador McFaul’s friend, Ms. Natalia Veselnitskaya, was initially denied an entry visa into the United States in 2016 and appealed her situation to the U.S. District Court of New York.  She was granted a parole letter allowing her to enter the United States on behalf of a client.
Here’s her filing to the U.S. District Court in New York.

And look at the participating attorneys. A smorgasbord of anti-Trumpers writ large. Attorney(s) appearing for the case:

JACOB W. BUCHDAHL (Cory S. Buland, on the brief), Susman Godfrey LLP, New York, NY, for Movant-Appellant Hermitage Capital Management Ltd.
PAUL MONTELEONI, Assistant United States Attorney (Cristine Phillips, Margaret Garnett, Assistant United States Attorneys, on the brief), for Preet Bharara, United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, for Plaintiff-Appellee the United States of America.
MICHAEL B. MUKASEY (Jennifer F. Mintz, Jarrod L. Schaeffer, on the brief), Debevoise & Plimpton, LLP, New York, NY, for Defendants-Appellees Prevezon Holdings Ltd., Prevezon Alexander, LLC, Prevezon Soho USA, LLC, Prevezon Seven USA, LLC, Prevezon Pine USA, LLC, Prevezon 1711 USA, LLC, Prevezon 1810 LLC, Prevezon 2009 USA, LLC, and Prevezon 2011 USA, LLC.
Before: POOLER, LOHIER, and CARNEY, Circuit Judges.

Yes, THAT Preet Bharara:


Natalia Veselnitskaya was/is also a very vocal anti-Trump person on all of her social media accounts – SEE FACEBOOK ARCHIVE HERE –  So why would someone with a disposition of being anti-Trump want to deliver information to Donald Trump Jr?  …Especially considering Ms. Veselnitskaya was never identified within the original email request for a meeting? ….and Donald Trump Jr. said, correctly it appears, that he had no idea whom he would be meeting with(?) .
It’s enough to make you wonder what exactly is the nature of the relationship between Natalia Veselnitskaya and President Obama’s appointees such that they would be visibly working together only a few days after her reported meeting with Donald Trump Jr. in Trump Tower….
Curiouser and Curiousor…

As Jeans2nd aptly notes:  Natalia Veselnitskaya could have known Michael McFaul going all the way back to 2008 when McFaul was in Russia as an Obama campaign advisor.

“Michael McFaul, who served as U.S. ambassador to Russia during the Obama administration, said that he was in Moscow meeting with officials in the weeks leading up to Obama’s 2008 election win.”  (Washington Post)

Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) have ties to Azerbaijan going back to at least 2010, if not before, during Clinton’s many trips to Azerbaijan.

Azerbaijan is also mentioned in the Wikileaks emails:

“In April 2015, the Clinton team had to decide whether to accept campaign donations from US lobbyists representing foreign states…like Iraq, Azerbaijan, Egypt, Libya and the United Arab Emirates.”
“After a great deal of back and forth, Clinton’s campaign manager Robby Mook said he decided they should just accept the donations”  (link)
“Azerbaijan: Could Baku Have Access to a Clinton White House? – A lobbyist connection between Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and Azerbaijan could create the appearance of a conflict of interest”.
“(since 2009) the Podesta Group, a high-powered Washington lobbying firm, has handled networking and image-building for Azerbaijan’s embassy in the United States.”  (link)
“Azerbaijan, a country the State Department said in an official report was infused with “corruption and predatory behavior by politically connected elites.”” “including slavery” (link)

      Basically we’re in a cold civil war.

    • lastinillinois says:

      Fasten your seatbelt Mrs M,
      You ain’t seen nothin’ yet!
      Only a family as strong as the Trump family could handle all this.
      And all thats coming.
      I sure am glad Mr DJT had a few years to gear up for this.

      • Sylvia Avery says:

        You know, I was thinking about all of this as I was grocery shopping earlier, and I think for those of us so inclined we need to say a few prayers for Don Jr.
        I admire how he has handled this, but this has GOT to be stressful all the same. I know the Trump kids are tough, but some prayers are in order I think.

        • lastinillinois says:

          Yes ma’am

        • Minnie says:

          Pray unceasingly ?
          Thank you for the call to prayer, Sylvia, I need to focus my strength on Him.

          • Sylvia Avery says:

            One of the things I love about this site is the community of other people of faith. And even those here who aren’t believers don’t give us a lot of grief for our faith, or at least I haven’t encountered that. Bless you, Minnie.

            • Oldschool says:

              Sylvia, I stumbled upon the treehouse with a link from Breitbart, enjoyed the sharp analysis, but it was the prayers to our Savior that brought me back to perch. God’s presence here is so comforting and gathering in prayer here is even more intimate than in my church community, which I love. It is amazing to feel His power here, coming from all the wonderful treepers.

            • jackphatz says:

              We are spiritual beings more so then people of specific faiths. WE have a common goal here to save our country and we are winning.

              That’s what really drew me in at first.

        • fleporeblog says:

          Sylvia they fu….ked with the wrong Trump! Don Jr. is your typical NYer in the sense that he lives for the fight. I was born and raised in the Bronx and now live in Queens. Eric, Ivanka, Tiffany aren’t your everyday fighters. Don Jr. also carries his father’s name. That has put additional pressure on him all his life. Don Jr. and our Lion know that the purpose of that meeting was to destroy the Trump name and brand forever.
          The NYT’s reporter let that secret out by crying that he had been working on this for a year. They never ever thought he would win. They were going to use this to arrest our Lion and destroy his entire family. The Uniparty, Deep State, etc.had to teach everyone a lesson that an outsider that decides to run will lose everything.
          We ARE at War! Make no mistake about it! Their Luciferian Reign in OUR country is OVER! Jesus Christ is our King of Kings!

          • Sylvia Avery says:

            You know, one of the things that drew me to Trump in the first place is the man knows how to fight. I’m very glad for that!

          • LBB says:

            Love. Spot on. Prayers the Spirit keeps all safe & strong.

          • Minnie says:

            Fle, thank you!!
            “The NYT reporter let the secret out . . . he had been working on this story for over a year”
            That tool just showed all his cards and those of his accessories, as well.
            I’m certain TBTB are aware of this timeline and have connected the dots, I’m enjoin going the satisfaction of connecting them myself ?
            I take pleasure in the little things ?

            I believe that the whole Russia thing was a setup to persecute citizen Trump after HilLIARy won the election via fraud. When you look at all the fake evidence, it was all generated by the DNC. It looks like this stuff with Trump Jr was a setup just as Sessions’ Russian meeting was a setup by the DNC. It was all designed to rationalize HilLIARy going after citizen Trump and his team after she won.
            HilLIARy and the DNC were confident they had the election in the bag due to historical levels of voter fraud. This is why the media called many states for HilLIARy within 1 min of the polls closing before any votes were counted. This is why key states such as FL and PA were not called by the media for hours after it was clear that Trump had won them. They were suppose to be in the bag.
            The D-Rats are seriously stupid. They are following through with their plan of trying to persecute citizen Trump even though it is now PRESIDENT Trump. Because of this, they do not have the resources to keep the fraudulent nature of the “evidence” hidden. Had HilLIARy won, they would have been in control and made up anything they wanted to persecute Trump, his family and anyone, such as Sessions, that supported him. BUT she LOST thank GOD! I have been thinking this week just how awful things would be right now if HilLIARy and the D-Rats had succeeded in stealing the election. It was too damn close and only the MONSTER VOTE, identified by Sundance beat them. President Trump actually won the election by an incredible margin.
            IMO, President Trump has allowed the Russian farce to continue because it has distracted from all the good things he has done for the USA that the lefties would be raising hell about such as border enforcement and energy dominance. However, I think the D-Rats and media have crossed the line with this latest attack against Don Jr. a fine, decent individual with a wonderful family. President Trump has been toying with the mouse as a distraction but I believe he’s about to take a bite. The D-Rats, Rinos and media are going to wish they had kept their mouths shut. No amount of payoff money they received is going to be worth what President Trump is going to do to them. And I’m going to be right there cheering President Trump as he stomps them into goo!.

          • Plain Jane says:

            Can’t remember if it was Rush, Hannity or someone else today said that the black hats (didn’t use that term) need to blow Junior out now because he is his father but more conservative and a convincing, articulate speaker. The lefties know when he runs, he will be a formidable force.

            • fleporeblog says:

              You are absolutely right! Americans will be yearning for Don Jr. to carry Trumpism throughout the 2032 to 2040! After Governor Abbott, Ryan Zienke, TREX or Mike Pence carry it from 2024 to 2032.

            • Jimmy Jack says:

              I’ve seen similar statements in several places.
              They’re trying to kneecap him now bc they know he is a formidable opponent.

          • ladypenquin says:

            Just posted 2 tweets above, noting that “working on it for a year.” 1) He thought he could milk it, 2) A year and had nothing to reveal before election? Gee, Hillary must be mad as a hornet over that “fact.” 3) Well, JY Sexton might have gotten a Pulitzer if he had investigated Obama/Hillary/Rice/Kerry. No, guess not, then he wouldn’t have been a Leftist.

          • ladypenquin says:

            That’s right, Fle, you’re in my native Queens. Dgt lives in Astoria, unfortunately clueless because she hates politics. Anyway, Donald Trump Jr. as you noted, Jr. has had the pressure of living with the Trump name his entire life, and they’re tough, smart and strong in ways many of us might not be.
            Sexton is having a meltdown because his nothingburger got flattened by Don Jr. right off the bat. These so-called journalists need to go back to school and learn the meaning of “LEGAL” vs illegal. They think opinions and all behaviors are illegal when done by our side. We’re not at war with Russia, they’re not on our no-fly list or listed as a “terrorist country” – so nothing illegal. Obama imposed “sanctions” post-election, in December. Period. Probably to continue with the threads they were weaving to explain Hillary’s loss, and of course, what they think they can do to the President.
            I don’t believe they can pull it off, what say you?

            • fleporeblog says:

              Absolutely not! This will be their ultimate downfall and disgrace they will take to their graves and hell with them.

            • Jimmy Jack says:

              I also think it kills a smug prick like Sexton that DJTrumpjr bested him – they love to belittle and mock the Trumps as dumb. Imagine being publicly outdone by someone you think isn’t smart enough ti shine your shoes? Meanwhile he’s a multimillionaire living with a beautiful wife while you’re writing creative fiction at some school in the Midwest?
              That’s gotta really sting.
              I LOVE IT.

          • Jimmy Jack says:

            Fellow NYCer here and I agree – true old school NYC street fighter. I LOVE this about them.
            Let me add one thing about his kids DJTjr, Ivanka, and Eric – they faced RELENTLESS media coverage when their parents went through that divorce. Those kids were followed to and from school, photographed constantly,e even little Ivanka in tears etc. If you lived in NYC during this time you remember those DAILY photos in the papers. These kids know how to fight and know how to fight the media off publicly.
            Tiffany was spared a lot of this bc her mother raised her outside the city after the divorce.
            Barron may become a completely different kind of fighter simply bc he’s still at home with all of this going on and I believe Melania is based as hell but doesn’t show it publicly. She survived growing up in a communist bloc country and went on to become a millionaire in her own right before marrying a billionaire and becoming FLOTUS. Talk about a lifetime of overcoming and winning.

      • ladypenquin says:

        Entrapment was my first thought when the story broke. A set up meeting. I believe that the Clinton campaign and DNC internal polling showed Hillary had significant problems running against Trump – even in June. That’s when and why the Russia narrative really took flight.

        • lastinillinois says:

          Good call

        • crossrib says:

          I think, too, that the Monster Vote was known by the “opposition” at this time, coupled with the fact that HRC was known by the dims to be a lousy candidate. The writing was on the wall for the dims and they had to come up with a plan. The polls were faked, their candidate was a fake and, as much as the MSM willfully ignored, they saw the # of, and the intensity of, the people showing up at the Trump rallies. The “muh russia” thing is a result of sheer panic.

          • Eric C. says:

            I don’t know about panic, but I think they clearly knew she would lose. If KAC knew Trump was winning, the DNC knew she was losing.
            Obama hates the Clintons, if she won the Clintons would be back. Obama would make more as the DNC figure in an opposition environment as opposed to Hilary winning and “fixing” O-care. He probably felt comfortable campaigning for her knowing she was losing. The she’s 800 points ahead narrrative was to fuel a collusion story. I think HRC got played.
            Think of how much savior Obama will make in the mid-terms and with his hand picked 2020 3rd term candidate…..

        • Paul Gerst says:

          Anybody want to bet that email was the basis for the FISA warrant?

        • MaineCoon says:

          Then-candidate Trump repeatedly said that he was the last person Hag would want to run against. I think she knew what he knew and he was right again!

        • Sunshine says:

          I agree with everybody. Hannity was just mentioning a possible set-up.

        • Jimmy Jack says:

          The way the email was worded definitely clues us in to this. They used key word that could be used for a FISA order.
          The Trumps are street smart and I believe saw through this ruse, leveraging what ties they had to this pop singers to do so.

      • Sylvia Avery says:

        That is my take on it.
        And then didn’t I hear Sara Carter talking about she had ties to Fusion GPS, also??? And that is the business that provided the notorious dirty dossier, too, I believe, and has ties to the DNC.

      • Budvarakbar says:

        She had better not walk home from any bars in the middle of the night – She might get Breitbarted, or Seth Riched — and stay away from Fort Marcy Park and not go quail hunting in Texas — Arkancide country.
        Sessons should put her in a witness protection program — if she is back in Russia Though – she may already be toast — cold toast – that is!

    • fleporeblog says:

      I wrote this earlier! I absolutely love our side and how we are able to catch the creatures so quickly!
      What Don Jr. did today by sharing the email exchange was totally brilliant. It completely neutralizes the MSM, Uniparty, Democrats etc. They can’t run with phony stories for months about what was “possibly” written in the email.
      Plus what is most exciting is the fact that the clown that wrote the email to Don Jr. may have been employed by GPS. This could have been a hit job from day one. The woman they met with was denied a visa and then the visa was approved at a later date. John Solomon from Circa News said that is highly unusual to go from being denied to being approved so he is investigating ALL of this! These RATS will see this boomerang destroy them once and for all!

    • Dan says:

      The Obama administration wanted something to be able to obtain the FISA warrant to spy on the Trump team. So they set up these meetings, this one with Don Jr and at least one more we know of with Jeff Sessions. Don Jr’s mistake was taking the meeting. But if you read the email chain he released today, it was very obviously a set up.

        One thing I am really enjoying in all of these pseudo-kerfuffles is daily, unique and new revelations as to the stunningly comprehensive nature and extent of The Swamp.
        Swamp element disclosures bounce around from the Congress, the FBI, the CIA, the media, International intrigue, ozeros many seditious activities, all manner of illegal “wiretaps”; accidental admissions of the sins of the former administration; the on-going evil of hrc, and so forth.
        Several thoughts…TRUMP just keeps on tackling his agenda promise, and presenting his vision on the world stage; keeping the msm voluntarily chasing its tail for 48 Tweeting for 10 minutes whenever; Trump’s unparalleled Cabinet members are all over everywhere, each doing his/her part to MAGA, and co-operate by speaking truth into the cul-de-sacs of lies each Sunday; the joy I feel when I contemplate the intense and productive time well spent by all of the “killers” accompanying Trump during the Transition Period.
        Remember how Trump introduced the term The Swamp? Said he didn’t like it at first? How many of these killers participated in those discussions? I’m thinking Trump’s recruiting probably started fairly early.
        So, I believe that brilliant bunch, after several weeks of actual brainstorming, had a pretty good grip on what they were facing.
        Can you imagine the laughter when someone said, What we have here gentlemen is a friggin’ Swamp? That’s it! Drain it!
        Best time line Evah !!

        Sylvia, you’re spot on! Fox is solidly drifted left. I noticed they play opposition network video clips repeatedly… thereby multiplying their effect.

            Switch to Direct TV or try their new streaming cable service DirecTV Now. $35/month will get you many of your normal cable channels plus OANN, FOX News, FOX Business, CSPAN, and CSPAN2. If you want your local sports network (FOX Sports) you will have to choose the $50/mo option.
            Direct TV’s parent company is AT&T which is getting ready to purchase Time Warner. I predict they will dump CNN at that time.

    Sundance you are a rock star but I think you meant to say It’s enough to make you wonder what exactly is the nature of the relationship between Natalia Veselnitskaya and President Obama such that she would be visibly working with one of his appointees only a few days after her reported meeting with Donald Trump Jr. in Trump Tower….
    There, fixed it for you.

  7. Osugagal says:

    Sundance, thank you for your research and education. Prior to following the CTH and prior to the election of Trump, I believed that while there were a few bad apples, most DC politicians were well meaning. I thought that even of those with whom I strongly disagreed. Now I am beginning to fully understand the level of corruptness of the swamp and can see how deeply entrenched immoral behavior is within the uniparty. Thank you to you and the president for bringing all of this into the light.

        From the GWP story linked.
        “MORE— That looks like Emin Agalarov sitting next to Natalia Veselnitskaya. He was mentioned in Donald Trump Jr’s statement this morning. Emin helped set up the meeting with Veselnitskaya.”

It would be great to have more transparency and release the entire Illegal surveillance files of President Trump, family and friends. It is obvious that members of the intelligence committees and agencies have this information already; they’ve been leaking parts to construct this scheme for impeachment.

They have a bill waiting to be approved by the House sanctioning Russia…within that bill will be the new laws constructed ex post facto to impeach our President. That bill was overwhelming approved by the Senate!

    • ladypenquin says:

      That may be their fantasy, but Donald Trump Jr. hasn’t broken any laws, nor has the President. Any person would be open to meeting with people regarding information ie. oppositional research. Every story the media has run with has netted them nothing. There isn’t anything in this either. Donald Trump Jr. hasn’t testified under oath or otherwise, and it’s clear he has no problem publishing the emails. The Lefties (including the MSM) didn’t expect that move – they intended to milk this for as much as they could.
      Not all on the intelligence committees and in the agencies are totally corrupt. Maybe some would like to see it happen, but then they have bigger problems – We the People.

        Gowdy fumes at Trump administration over latest Russia controversy
        By Rachael Bade 07/11/2017 08:16 PM EDT
        House Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy lashed out at the Trump administration Tuesday over the “drip, drip” in the ongoing Russia controversy, sarcastically suggesting that officials get checked for amnesia about any contacts with Russia.
        The South Carolina Republican first appeared on Fox News Tuesday night expressing concerns about email traffic showing that Donald Trump Jr. was not only aware that the Russian government was gathering intelligence on Hillary Clinton to help his father’s election, but that he also knowingly met with a Kremlin-backed lawyer claiming to want to share incriminating documents with the Trump campaign.
        “If you had a contact with Russia, tell the special counsel about it! Don’t wait until the New York Times figures it out!” an exasperated Gowdy said in a brief interview outside the Capitol Tuesday.
        Gowdy said the “somebody needs to sit everybody down” to find out what happened.
        Sign up here for POLITICO Huddle
        “Someone needs to get everyone in a room and say, from the time you saw ‘Dr. Zhivago’ until the moment you drank vodka with a guy named Boris, you list every single contact with Russia,” Gowdy said, referring to the 1965 movie.
        Gowdy, however, maintained his long-held argument that it’s Justice Department special counsel Bob Mueller’s job — not his — to probe the matter. The chairman has said he and his Oversight panel will not interfere or overlap with Mueller in any way.
        “Congress is not the place to litigate legal issues,” he said Tuesday.”
        AND he threw the ball back to MUELLER. Why? Because it’s a frigging SET-UP and Dowdy Gowdy is in on it.

    • Lulu says:

      Gowdy is a big phony and was anti Trump during the primary

      gowdy is turning into the biggest Ahole in the republican party-a true nevertrumper scumbag.

    I am wondering about the date. Michael Weiss tweeted one photo but says it was from 2014. Regardless, this is a dnc set up.

  37. big bad mike says:

    Fact: Donald Trump Jr. Is a man and has nothing to hide . The truth will set him free
    Fact: He is fearless like his Father. Fact:. He and his brother Eric fought like hell to help their father become POTUS. Fact:. Mike Pence and Jared Kushner are pussies and would throw their grandmother’s under a bus if it would give them more power. Their treachery will be noticed by the Boss.

      But the Truth/Sunlight, cannot be denied.
      There are no Coinkidinks, when it comes to the Dimms.

    some comments:
    This is key- 11 APR 17- “The shady dealings of Donald Trump associate Carter Page with Russian officials set off significant enough alarm bells in the U.S. intelligence community that the FBI sought and was granted permission from a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court judge to monitor the communications of the Trump adviser as far back as July 2016, the Washington Post reported Thursday evening. Page was the only American a FISA court has granted the government permission to eavesdrop on as part of the probe into Russia’s election meddling, officials told the Post. The 90-day FISA warrant to surveil Page was renewed at least once.”
    The email sent by the Brit HAD to have the correct key words to trigger this response and the meeting HAD to take place. When the meting took place DJT Jr. and this Russian Lawyer are looking at each with the “WTF is going on here look and nothing comes of the meeting”.
    But that the meeting actually took place was the key- and THAT is what triggered the whole FISA court approval.

    For the past seven years, the Podesta Group, a high-powered Washington lobbying firm, has handled networking and image-building for Azerbaijan’s embassy in the United States. Azerbaijan ranks alongside Tajikistan as the third worst rights abuser in the former Soviet Union, behind Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan, according to the watchdog group Freedom House.
    “The connection to Hillary Clinton’s campaign is worrisome,” said Rebecca Vincent, a former American diplomat who has been active in Azerbaijan human rights causes.

  42. Joshua2415 says:

    Set up or not, this story is just another blast of hot air. So DJT Jr was willing to hear about potentially damaging Russian opposition research on Hillary. So what? Team Hillary paid to get potentially damaging Russian opposition research on Trump with that phony MI-6 dossier. Sure, Jeb Bush probably paid for it first, but who cares. Camp Hillary heard it was for sale and they happily paid for it. They were in a hot presidential campaign. So what is the problem?
    At this point, it looks to me like the Russians (or some group pretending to be the Russians) were dishing dirt on both sides just to have some fun and make some cash. So we’re supposed to be mad at them because our establishment stooges fell for it? Sorry. I have no sympathy for the idiots.
    Lastly, it is actually possible that this Russian lawyer lady is in fact just lobbying to get the Magnitsky Act repealed. Her making friends on both sides of our political ledger is probably a good strategy. She may be just another useful fool in all of this. Kind of like Michael Flynn.

  43. Aintree77 says:

    I believe this present controversy won’t lead to an indictment for anything criminal or illegal but I noticed the tension on the brows of Watters, Guillfoyle and Gutfield when they defended the Don Jr. e-mails. Dem Juan Williams was invigorated and cheerful and anti trump moderate Perrino appeared optimistic that evidence will be found. Similar reactions are going on across America.
    Don Jr. made a hindsight and a political error in not reporting this “meeting” with a “Russian” months ago and that error has given an early Xmas gift to the floundering Dem media. But the media is also demonstrating their despicable double standards. The plethora of leaks of classified info from the Deep State that the media has received from genuinely treasonous fellow Americans to impugn Trump are marginalized but a meeting that went nowhere is an alleged bombshell. However, the e-mail mention of “Russian gov’t sources” will provide months and years of Collusion fodder for the Dem media or until Comey’s pal Mueller and his Dem lawyers reach their conclusions on this never ending insanity.

          I only watched the Five today to see what they were saying about this stirred pot. I occasionally watch Hannity and Carlson if something out of the ordinary occurs but I fast forward most of Carlson whenever he debates a wacky lefty.

  44. ALEX says:

    The last sentence of this is particularly interesting…
    So there’s a current working theory that this was the bait used to get the FISA warrant for the monitoring of trump towers that The New York Times reported back on in January.
    By the way The New York Times reporter spilled the beans when he complained about trump junior leaking the saying he’d been working on the story for over a year so The Times knew about this virtually from day one they were in on the loop ..
    This was The bait dangled by the Clinton campaign to get enough to justify a FISA Warrant by Obama to spy on Trump
    Truth is now I hope they were monitoring trump because all that evidence is still out there and obviously there was nothing else it already heard about it so it’s basically clears Trump
    They’re down to leaking the original bait as the story

    I’m beginning to believe that Obama/Clinton collided with Russia to make sure Clinton won the election but it backfired because the MOVEMENT that Trump headed, awoke the American Patriots to the danger the country was headed in. Many of us felt the danger our country was going in, and it scared us.
    Clinton was a KNOWN for China and Russia, they knew she could be manipulated and controlled.
    China and Russia had no idea about how to deal with Trump. He was an unknown, and not a D.C. player.
    Putin might have been playing with Trump before the election, and he was in on the “fake Russian story” .
    China and Russia FEAR Trump, they didn’t fear Clinton at all.

    • That’s what I think also; that Russia colluded with the Dems and it didn’t work….POTUS better be really careful around PUTIN…They didn’t fear Clinton because she was colluding with them..Dems always project….I really wish this would all come out but GOP is part of collusion, so I don’t know….

Well, he is and was doing this as a non-Trump candidacy helper, so again nothing there but maybe he should file suit and I hope he does. My question now is how did the NYT even get Donald’s emails?

            • In Az says:

              Exactly. Which proves the commie Dhimms had the email information, waiting for the perfect moment to release it to public.
              And proves the commie Dhimms are colluding with the media to go after Trump and his administration.
              And proves all this Russia garbage was manufactured to get Trump. All this was obtained by Obama spying on Trump and family and people helping the Demoncrats set up traps for Trump and family

    • mimbler says:

      That’s what they would like, but a close second is to just keep his administration pinned down so they can’t enact their agenda, and replace him at the ballot box because “he hasn’t accomplished anything”.

      • Gil says:

        Thats what it seems to be, but its a petty squabble on the pinning down part. Our POTUS is fighting the big fight, the long game, and he prepped well in advance. I remember him talking about how he discussed the presidency with his kids. They know or at least planned the road ahead a long time ago.

      • carrierh says:

      Agreed Howie. This whole thing was obviously a failed set up. The Dems and the MSM are throwing every bit of slime they have in their arsenal because they have nothing but lies and innuendo to use against the president. They also know damn well that payback is a you know what. President Trump has held his fire all this time. When he hits backs the whole Deep State will get rocked to its core. They know it and are in full desperation mode hoping to get him impeached because if they don’t they know what’s gonna happen to them and the entire Deep State apparatus when the president drops the hammer on them!

  51. Aintree77 says:

    Another excellent researched article by LR. The lightning fast speed that a copious amount of info can be uncovered by competent and determined researchers on anyone including in this case Natalia Veselnitskaya in this cyber world is incredible.

  52. tony5460 says:

    Sounds to me Trump Jr. took a bait. The strange thing is Paul Manafort was supposed to be an experienced operative. And he also did not see it through.

    • lastinillinois says:

      Seems to me like Don Jr did NOT take any bait.

    • Deb says:

      Having a meeting isn’t taking the bait. I’m sure Manafort saw right through it, hence the lack of follow up.
      This whole story is based on third hand information and innuendo. It’s worse than tabloid journalism.

      • tony5460 says:

        Here is what I thought this woman was up to. It appears to me that she is the type of person who wants to be perceived having lots of connections with powerful people so she can profit from it in some way. Remember the political system in countries like Russia does not have transparency. People navigate the system quite often through relationship, eg. knowing government officials. So knowing the son of the president in these countries tends to mean lucrative political or business opportunities. By simply having a meeting with Trump Jr., she can tell her Russia network that she knows the son of the president of the U.S. and trust me there are people (Russians) would fall for it. It did not matter whether there was any substance in the meeting, which she knew there was none. She came up with an idea (opposition research) to lure Trump Jr.. It was far fetch to say that Dem or Obama Administration somehow orchestrates the episode. But it was a scam and unfortunately Trump Jr did not do due diligence beforehand.

    • thefrankproject says:

      IMO it’s quite possible they fully planned this out. Trump operations tend to be like this. 1. Do or say something controversial. 2. Mainstream news is whipped into a frenzy. 3. People start paying attention and chattering. 4. Trump drops a bomb.
      I am certain they knew or at least strongly suspected this is how this would play out. She’s connected to the Obama Admin and the Clinton campaign and was used as fodder for an illegal FISA warrant against Trump.
      Not only that but this is circumstantial evidence that Trump Tower WAS BUGGED! THink about this: how did the NYT know about the contents of this meeting? Who is the leaker? In this case the info came from a Trump Tower wire tap.
      This story is just beginning!

  53. I posted this at Gateway Pundit too
    It’s as if the Deep State doesn’t realize there is an internet these days and that they won’t get caught.
    It’s clear as day, Step by Step
    – Deep State uses Natalia Veselnitskaya to get meeting with Trump campaign.
    – Deep State uses bureaucracy to get her into the country
    – Deep State creates fake Russian hacking attempt narrative, leaks to media – Russia has now just gone from new friendly ally, to sworn US enemy based on nothing but a phony created narrative
    – Deep State names a list of Russians that govt needs to monitor… Natalia Veselnitskaya is named… wink… wink
    – Deep State acquires FISA to “legally” spy on Trump. Translation: they simply got court permission to commit an illegal act with no legal consequence
    – Obama uses executive orders to allow deep state to conspire with media and leak and unmask with no legal consequence
    – Deep State “investigates” Natalia Veselnitskaya and all of her communications. Oh my God, she met with Trump!!!!!!!! wink. wink. What a surprise. Leak. Leak. Leak. Leak.
    All fake.
    The real story is this: The Trump campaign met with someone from a friendly ally country, who claimed to have opposition research damaging to their opponent. Nothing wrong with that. Nothing illegal. Nothing even morally questionable, considering that opposition research is 50% of every election in human history.
    The fake news media, the Obama administration, NeverTrump GOPers and Deep State changed Russia from an ally to a fake enemy (after the fact and under everyone’s noses) to make any communication with anyone even remotely connected to Russia seem incendiary.
    Everything you see and hear is fake. Russia Gov’t wanted Trump to win? So what? Every country in Europe, and in addition Mexico and Canada, openly and gleefully supported, encouraged, and meddled in the election to help Clinton win.
    That isn’t a crime. Every nation is allowed to have an opinion. They are allowed to try and influence public opinion, just as we are… and just as we do bigger and worse than any nation in the history of earth.
    It’s frustrating, but it won’t work. The American People won’t stand for it. Never have, never will.
    Bill Clinton lied under oath and obstructed justice – actual real crimes. And when he was impeached, the vast majority of the public punished Republicans for trying to oust him. Why? It’s real simple… they voted him in, and the American public decides who our Presidents are. Not bullets. Not impeachment. Not Congress.
    If the Democrats run their 2018 midterms on “Impeach Trump” – they will lose seats like we’ve never seen before.

  54. Honest Abbey says:

    For the life of me, I just cannot believe how this Russian woman (whose plane had just landed) was able to meet with Donald Trump Jr and Steve Bannon in Trump Tower and five days later she is sitting front & center at a Congressional hearing on Capitol Hill as a special guest of Obama’s Ambassador to Russia……..And………..
    Nobody caught this until NOW????
    Her VISA was declined, then mysteriously it was approved. Somebody should have been documenting her movement in this country.

    • Deb says:

      And they weren’t concerned at the time because the whole “Russia is ba narrative didn’t start until October. When this meeting took place the “Russian collusion” narrative hadn’t started yet. So Trump Jr. has no reason to be weary of meeting with a “Russian.”
      They are rewriting recent history, as if we are all stupid.

    • CharterOakie says:

      Not Bannon. Manafort and Kushner…allegedly.

          • She looks like she was hired to ensnare Don Jr and is still playing that game while keeping her defenses up. I base that on her expression when she went out of her way to say they pressed me about negative information, that was what they really wanted. That was an attempt to stick the knife deeper into Don Jr whom she would have no reason to damage if her cover was true.
            She knows that information was what was dangled, why wouldn’t they have pressed since that was what they meeting was supposed to be about. They must have been confused when no such info was on offer. They only messed up by not being suspicious enough to think someone was baiting a hook for them. They put it down to her wanting to get the adoption market reopened but that was a thin pretext since as Don Jr said they had no control or leverage over that situation. A more suspicious person would have seen through the obvious falseness of the reasoning..

      • Jim in TN says:

        Wasn’t it accepted, with the exception of spying on Trump? I.e., they were allowed to spy on all these associates within the campaign, but not on Trump?
        Then, they used the ‘new’ information in October to get it expanded to Trump.

        • wheatietoo says:

          I thought it was totally rejected…for lack of compelling evidence.
          But I think they had already been doing the spying, on Trump and his Team.
          They manufactured the whole ‘Russians’ story in order to get a FISA warrant, to retroactively ‘legalize’ what they had already been doing.
          Why a FISA warrant?
          Because that is the only type of warrant that is kept secret…but to get one, there has to be ‘foreign espionage’ involved.

    • luke says:

      Hmmm Ted you might be on to something. Was this meeting the event that was used to attempt to gather the 1st FISA warrant on Trump?

      • Sherlock says:

        It’s right about that time, for sure, but unclear to me which came first–fisa warrant or the meeting. All within a matter of weeks, though. So, one scenario is they used the meeting to get the FISA warrant, having gotten wind of it through NSA surveillance/taps on the Russian lawyer. Or, could be they had the warrant first, and this is how they got the info on the meeting.

    This whole meeting was a set up. U.S. intel agencies have been sitting on this waiting to use it. Impeachment is the game. What Trump is not grasping is that being innocent of any crime is irrelevant. This is not a legal trial in a court of law to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. It is a political trial. Mueller will manufacture the pretext….even if it pure BS. The Congress will vote to impeach because it’s the political result they need to save the corrupt system. They don’t need any evidence of wrongdoing. They will knowingly lie and sleep well at night. Foolish Sessions left his president naked to the jackals when he recused himself. He had no idea what the real game was.

    Watching Don Jr with Sean and he seems flustered. Like he’s beginning to understand the lengths to which the fothermuckers will go. I’m not sure even Trump Sr. had a grasp of just how evil the government has become under Hussein.
    Yes, he’s dealt in the dirty world of real estate but this is a different scene.

        I consider what is happening with people like him and the media a blessing, as they actually are unmasking themselves so we can clearly see them.

    Griffin initially tweeted that the photo was taken in 2010, but deleted that tweet and posted another without a date.

    • bflyjesusgrl says:

      Yes, think about it, Comey’s fingerprints are on this, someone who knew how to “work the system”. What if Comey tells Clinton this is how to spy on Trump. Have Fusion GPS get Goldstone, a “British” national, to send an email to “American” Don, Jr,. with subject of “Russia and Clinton – Private and Confidential”. Ding, Ding, Ding! Alarms get triggered by FBI monitoring, which enables them to apply for FISA so they can tap Trump Tower!! Just because the court didn’t approve warrant in July doesn’t mean the FBI didn’t install the tap anyway. This would answer the question of how NYT reporter know about this for a year – Comey told him! I’m sure Comey knows a lot more from spying illegally, but he can’t reveal until such cover gets created (in this case, the leak of Kushner’s updated form info) for him to hide behind without everyone knowing it came from him.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Republican Senator Chuck Grassley, chairman of the US Senate Judiciary Committee, asked the US administration on Tuesday how the Russian lawyer who met President Donald Trump’s son in New York in June 2016 was allowed to enter the United States.
    Grassley, in a letter to Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, said US permission for the lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, to travel to the United States had been set to expire on Jan. 7, 2016, and her request for an extension had been denied, Grassley’s office said in a statement.

    • Troublemaker10 says:

      Exactly! Who signed off on her VISA allowing her to stay in US to pursue the Trump JR meeting?

      • Curry Worsham says:

        Travel visa – allowing her to come here.

      • The filing was an appeal to a district court. Logically, if her parole letter was discontinued (Jeh Johnson would have been the one issuing the one that expired), the court would have had to be the one “signing off” on it, citing this filing in which she claims her client’s legal defense would be adversely affected. Sooner or later an actual court order to that effect will no doubt pop up. I doubt she was “an illegal” as some have speculated.
        Apparently she was cited in the same complaint citing Fusion GPS for unregistered lobbying, so someone was taking full advantage of the extension. The Trump Jr. meeting seems to have been part of that effort. I don’t want to speculate further, but that’s a strange set of coincidences in my book.

    here is part of comment-good
    As we see from this article that was just posted . The Russian lawyer is sitting right in front of Emin (who set up the meeting) 8 days after the meeting happened in congress right behind Obama’s Russian ambassador (he could coordinate everything). We also know this isn’t just any Russian lawyer, she is connected to Fusion GPS which is connected to the DNC paid for foreign agent acquired piss dossier Here is the Russian oppo research from the DNC in May 2016 (one month before the meeting and BEFORE ANY HACKING TOOK PLACE). (search for Emin and he is their entire link to “Putin” because President Trump is in one of his music videos).
    So in closing, the DNC in May of 2016 BEFORE THERE WAS ANY HACKING planned to use Emin to connect President Trump to Putin since he was in a music video of his. Kerry met with Emin’s father in law in May of 2016, one month before the meeting was requested with DT jr. in June. The Russian lawyer who attended the meeting was spotted with Emin 8 days later in Congress (who let them in?) AND is connected to the Fusion GPS fake piss dossier.
    MOST IMPORTANT PART (summary). This DNC hit job to connect Emin to Putin and then Emin to President Trump was planned BEFORE THE DNC WAS “HACKED” BY “RUSSIA”. This was their end game all along. Their next “bombshell” will be “Who is this Emin that set up the meeting? Oh wow he’s connected to Putin and here is President Trump in his music video”. This is how they’re going to use this bullshit cooked up meeting to go after President Trump. All planned since May of 2016 before anyone was f**king “hacked”. And they weren’t his name was fu**ing Seth Rich you f**ks.

In 1998, I graduated with distinction from the Moscow State Legal Academy with a degree in jurisprudence. Upon graduation from the Academy, I started working at the Prosecutor’s Office. I worked there for three years, overseeing the legality of statutes that were adopted by legislators of Moscow Oblast. After that I moved into private business. In 2003, I formed a private legal firm, Kamerton Consulting, which later grew to 30 employees, including five attorneys. My firm and I specialize in corporate and property disputes in courts.

    1. Try and say nothing. Just smile and enjoy.
    2. Concentrate on the Chairman. See if he/she is Pro, Anti, or Neutral Trump.
    3. He/She will notice if new people attend. The more of us who show up will influence their attitude. Remember. These meetings are sparsely attended. Most of the Committeemen don’t show.
    4. You will be surprised that most of the Committeemen are grassroots and support the President.
    5. If they invite you to meet afterwards for coffee at the local McDonald’s. Go.
    6. Be patient. The midterms are not until next November. Things won’t get serious until later in the year, or if your Republican Congressman get’s primaried. Whichever comes first.
    7. Your Republican Congressman will have an office in the Town where the meeting is held. And his Toadie will be at the meeting to make sure nothing new happens
    8. The second meeting you attend will be more fun. That’s when you will be able to start being heard.

        Sure appears quite possible she’s on the payroll of somebody that’s powerful in American politics. Whomever she’s connected with here, the story will unravel and as is often the case, the connection goes straight to the top.
        This Russian story started long before Donald Trump even got the nomination. It started when Obama promised more flexibility and when Hillary cut a deal for our uranium and her husband’s foundation profited from it.
        Wake up, House and Senate intelligence committees and all committees that have investigations going on this. You keep reeling in an empty net with respect to the Trump family. Cast your nets on the other side of the boat and we’ll get somewhere. Subpoena the aide John McCain sent to personally pick up the dossier, then haul McCain up for questioning. Why did McCain take it upon himself to get the dossier and immediately hand it off to Comey? Who appointed McCain Master of the Universe for a Day that made him think it was up to him to spend taxpayer money to undermine a candidate for president in his own party, knowing there was no proof to back up the dossier?
        Thankfully, a few honest people like sundance with the necessary connections to find the truth, will find the truth.
        The President’s highly successful G20 trip just couldn’t stand. He actually reset relations with Russia with a firm handshake and an America First agenda. No plastic reset buttons from a gag store were needed.
        Obama seethed with anger at the outcome of the G20. Michelle seethed at the remarkable and graceful cleanup job Mrs. Trump did to revive the dignity of the position of First Lady of the United States. Knowing their anger and hatred, the media snapped to attention and before the jets on AF One had cooled, they rolled out the Don Jr., Fake Story that has no substance.
        If there is justice left in this world, the significance of the email exchange and 20 minute meeting DT, Jr., had will be it finally legally unmasks all the key players that colluded and plotted this entire Fake Story known as the Russian Conspiracy/Election Hacking/Collusion, et al, story. May the unraveling of truth on this be the final stake through the heart of one of the biggest political con jobs in history.
        May the true perpetrators, plotters, scammers, corruptors and liars that cooked up this entire scandal be exposed, indicted, tried and held accountable to the fullest extent of the law. May real law and order prevail, not the Fake kind Comey followed. No excuses, no passes based on last names or political miscle, no looking the other way and no more insults to our senses by saying there was ‘no intent’. The hell there wasn’t intent. The true intent of all this is unspeakable.
        Congressional investigators, stop pedaling a bicycle that has no chain. Once and for all, go after the sources of this dangerous game being played by media executives, news anchors, newspaper editors, loyalists to all previous administrations and the current Uniparty that are fine with harm coming to America as long as their own political backsides are advanced and protected.
        Until you–Congress–ends this witch hunt and destructive game plan plotted against our President, his family and our national security, nothing will change. This is now your job. Pass healthcare reform, pass the President’s budget which includes funding for The Wall and pass tax reform, then go after this Russian story from beginning to end like ravenous lions. If you can’t connect the dots, hire sundance to come help you. Enough is enough.

            I spent this past weekend working at a Republican Party booth in a tiny town in Democrat northern Minnesota. As the county Chair I walked out to every passer-by, shook their hand and introduced myself, never knowing the reaction I would receive being in enemy territory. On Friday not one person who passed the booth said they were Democrat. On Friday 75% of the people who passed the booth literally whispered to me that they were “closet Republicans” who “voted for Trump” but could not say so out loud. The other 25% had no trouble saying they voted for Trump, no matter their party affiliation.
            Saturday the Democrats came out and just refused to either shake my hand or give a civil ‘Hello’ to another human being. Did get into a conversation with a group of Democrats who laughed at me and repeated a few of the standard President Trump lies, again laughing at me and us. They all acted as though they held the high moral ground until I pointed out to them — very nicely — that they did not show me any respect during our conversation, and laughed at me as though they were bullies on the playground.
            They apologized.

Many of my friends/acquaintances out here do not even bring politics up and I’ve suspected more than a few voted for Mr. Trump but can’t admit it. Despite all of the “muh Russia” BS on the news, they understand that the Dem candidate, HRC, ran a terrible campaign and lost…..bigly. She and the DNC pulled a fast one on Bernie supporters which I suspect has done immeasurable damage splintering the Democrat party. All of this Russia Russia Russia has become very tedious.

              Raven, I can attest to what you are saying. All the time I considered myself a Democrat I acted the same way as the ones you described. I am not proud of it today but back then it was just ingrained in me as being normal,moral and all knowing that I and all the Dems were in the right. I could not imagine anyone being a Republican or a Conservative. Liberalism was just the only way to go. Even though I couldn’t identify with them and thought they were just plain ignorant I was constantly noticing that most of my co workers and friends who were on the right were most always very nice and well mannered when discussing politics. I even wondered sometimes why I wasn’t like them and wished that I could be that way.
              I was thinking back the other day and I am ashamed at the way I acted back then to people I disagreed with and how they never treated me the way I treated them. My sister and I used to discuss all the time how civil they were. After the 2008 election and the way the Democrats acted towards anyone who was not in the tank for Obama I saw things a lot more clearer. Now the contrast between the people in the two parties is just as plain as the nose on my face. The Left is the most intolerant and hateful class of people I have ever seen. Sure I know some on the right can be that way especially the GOPe and Never Trumpers but in my opinion they don’t hold a candle to the nasty hypocritical Leftists.

              • Raven says:

                I am so glad you are on “our side” Serena. It is interesting hearing how so many Republicans were once Democrats — including me.

      Perhaps they were already spying BEFORE they received the FISA order.

      • TheLastDemocrat says:

        I agree. They could not find anything, so they decided to manufacture something, rather than wait and hope.
        If they did find something with their illegal spying, they could almost certainly figure out a way to reverse-engineer the matter and stumble upon it another, innocent, legal way.
        But that was going too slow.

    • Sherlock says:

      How did they get them? Well, one plausible scenario is they were looking at her all along, and remember, they can easily access the communications of foreigners, without warrant.
      So, every foreigner who emailed him, or who SHARED his emails with other foreigners, probably had their stuff looked at.

      Yeah, this blows it out of the water. My only question is how the INTERNAL Russian politics impact this broad – because THAT has to be extremely complicated, but I think it will ultimately explain what she was up to. American actors aren’t all playing to the same tune, and it must be the same with these Russian political types.
      They kept this gal’s identity covered so she couldn’t be researched before the meeting – THAT right there should tell us a lot. They KNEW that something about her would stink.
      You know – I just realized something, thanks to that bit about hosting the opposition two days after he got there. What if Hillary’s “reset” wasn’t just a failure because of her ineptitude, but rather because she (and Obama) were LYING about what they were trying to do with the “reset”? What if it wasn’t about better relations, but an excuse to exert foreign/globalist influence on the Russian government? The McCain / Graham / UniParty / globalist vision? And THAT is why it failed – because both Medvedev and Putin were NOT impressed with Hillary and Obama hooking up with their opposition to try to change Russia the way they had changed the US. Remember all the Soros / Femen cray-cray of those early years? Bet they were causing a lot of trouble over there.

  106. Troublemaker10 says:

    Why Donald Trump Jr. is Innocent. Period.
    The Code of Federal Regulations makes the law immunizing Trump Jr.’s actions precisely clear: any foreign national individual may volunteer personal services to a federal candidate or federal political committee without making a contribution. The law provides this volunteer “exemption” as long as the individual performing the service is not compensated by anyone on the campaign. See 11 CFR 100.74. For example, as the Federal Election Commission advises all, “an individual can provide volunteer services to a candidate or party without considering the value of those service a contribution to the candidate or party.” Section 30121 of Title 52 does not apply to voluntary activity or services. The thing “of value” must be actual money, or its transferable equivalent, not a volunteer of services or information. Otherwise, if volunteering information in coordination with a campaign constituted donations, everyone from John Harwood to Chuck Todd (and maybe all of CNN) made millions in donations to the Hillary campaign, as WikiLeaks emails disclosed.

    • Sherlock says:

      We can list dozens of reasons no crime has been committed (and yours is quite good, BTW). The media cannot list even one that suggests the contrary. They really don’t even try, for when they do, even their own lefty lawyer-type talking heads come on TV and point out the error. Which is why they use amorphous terms like “collusion” to mislead. First it was “hacking” , then “collusion”, then a shift to “obstruction” (of something) and now apparently “contact with a Russian” is deemed enough for media shrieking. All ridiculous.

    • Mike says:

      Yet, as far as I can puzzle things out – they used this legal meeting using a Dem operative, as a pretense to get a FISA warrent and start the whole “unmasking.” This from the Obama administration, who was openly campaigning for his SOS Hillary Clinton. But we know the whole investigation ended up with – nothing. So why would they bring up this old legal meeting, when we already know the outcome of the investigation? They are looping back to the beginning again.
      Unless I am missing something, the fake news media is very stupid. Or very desperate. Or both. This Russian flap must be the only plan they got, and they are hanging on to it fo dear life, They may be harming Trump, but they are commiting suicide at the same time it seems.

        Then I saw it all through the “recounts”! “They will steal it, mark my words!” Heck, even during the convention: “Lee will steal it, they will NEVER let Trump be the nominee. They will parachute in Cruz (Ryan, Bush, etc.). Why do we never learn?
        I’m all for healthy concern and attention, but this abject fear I do not understand. It is self defeating.
        Look, it’s simple really: The enemies of our country, and of our President, will not give up like some assumed. They will fight like the cornered rats that they are. So, if people aren’t willing to fight back for 8 straight years, just quit. It’s simple. Continual bemoaning of the hand dealt is really worse than non-productive, it’s positively harmful.

      I don’t know why you say you see fear on this site of potential impeachment. I’ve certainly not seen it. And how many people conflate impeachment with removal from office?

      • elleb77 says:

        Clinton wasn’t impeached. Only the House voted for impeachment, the Senate didn’t. You need impeachment votes from both houses to be impeached.

        • Stansbury says:

          Actually, Clinton was impeached (charged by the House) and the matter went the Senate for trial (presided over by Chief Justice Rehnquist, United States Supreme Court. The trial was covered by the MSM (and was almost as much of a circus as the OJ Simpson trial; everybody knew he did it, but everybody knew he would never be convicted). Clinton was acquitted.

      • Frankly Ben says:

        There is zero basis to even mention impeachment. The Uniparty is trying to defeat Trump’s agenda through deception and subterfuge.
        They don’t need impeachment. All they need is for Traitor Paul and Traitor Mitch to keep gumming up legislation and try to outlast Trump while giving the appearance of supporting reform (healthcare, taxes and voter fraud).
        The Repugs are quite happy to let the Crazy Maxines take the impeachment lead. All leadership has to do is continue as they are: bottle up all pertinent legislation and act like the’re “fighting for the American people”.
        The only place to stop this charade will be the Republican primaries but even here leadership knows it’s next to impossible to primary out an incumbent.
        We’re in checkmate. The only wildcard is for President Trump to expose this duplicity and campaign hard for reformers in next year’s primaries.

  108. Yes, fear, stir in some trolls…. It’s a panic! ????

    President Bill Clinton meddled in Russian affairs in the 1990s and helped Boris Yeltsin get elected to a second term, political analyst Dick Morris told Newsmax TV.…
    “Hillary [Clinton] on Saturday gave a speech warning [Russian President Vladimir] Putin against interfering in the U.S. elections. The FBI has talked about foreign interference and Obama has warned about it,” Morris said. “This goes back to something that happened in 1996.”
    “When I worked for Clinton, Clinton called me and said, ‘I want to get Yeltsin elected as president of Russia against Gennady Zyuganov, who was the communist who was running against him. Putin was Zyuganov’s major backer.…
    “We, Clinton and I, would go through it and Bill would pick up the hotline and talk to Yeltsin and tell him what commercials to run, where to campaign, what positions to take. He basically became Yeltsin’s political consultant.
    “I think that Putin resented that, hated it, thought that it was an inappropriate intervention by Bill Clinton and I think he’s determined to take his revenge out on Hillary Clinton.”
    In other words?
    Forget Donald Trump — either President Donald Trump or Donald Trump Jr. The reason Morris ascribes to Putin’s outrage at Hillary Clinton isn’t about Hillary Clinton at all. It’s about… Bill Clinton. And then-President Bill Clinton’s decision to directly and personally intervene in the Russian presidential election.
    Take a look here in this January, 2010 issue of the UK’s Telegraph. The headline is of one Tatyana Yumasheva — Boris Yeltsin’s daughter. It reads:
    Boris Yeltsin’s daughter attacks Vladimir Putin
    What we have here is a President of the United States — Bill Clinton — who deliberately, willfully and personally intervened in the election of a Russian president. That president — the winner — was Boris Yeltsin. Who was eventually to sour on his acolyte, Vladimir Putin.
    Fast forward to 2016.
    There is the now all-powerful Russian President Vladimir Putin, mentor and ex-President Boris Yeltsin having long passed on to history. And who does now-President Putin see as the potential next-President of the United States? None other than Hillary Clinton — the wife of the American president who humiliated Russia by personally meddling in the Russian presidential election. And Putin’s instinct is all too easy to believe: revenge.
    The essence? Once upon a time Yeltsin, the Russian president, and acolyte Vladimir Putin were allies. But Putin favored the Communist Zyuganov over Yeltsin. And Bill Clinton had gone out of his way to collude with Yeltsin. Where was Donald Trump in all of this? In New York real estate. Ditto young son Don Jr. The hit Trump series The Apprentice was still eight years distant. Not within a country mile of President Clinton’s personal meddling in a Russian presidential election.
    Which is to say?
    There is that caution out there that one should always be careful of what one wishes for. Democrats are demanding an investigation of Trump-Russia ties. Now? Now, with the laughable suggestion that Don Trump Jr.’s actions somehow prove collusion with the Russians? It’s time for the GOP to open wide the doors to investigate the Clinton-Russian collusion. Not just all the shenanigans surrounding the Clinton Foundation or Hillary as Secretary of State or the ties of Clinton aide John Podesta.
    No. It’s time to call in former President Clinton himself. And Dick Morris. And ex-President Obama and Susan Rice and all the rest.
    Again, as the saying goes? Be careful what you wish for.
    Every single move to investigate Donald Trump, Jr. must mean the expansion of the investigation into the Bill Clinton meddling in a now-long ago Russian presidential election. And the consequences for America in 2016 that resulted.
    Or, in the famous words of the Senate Watergate Committee’s late Tennessee Senator Howard Baker?
    It is clear that President Clinton colluded with the Russians to manipulate a Russian presidential election. So? So….
    What did President Clinton know — and when did he know it?

    • spren says:

      All well and good, but Putin above all else is a pragmatist and his desire to enhance his power would blind him to old grudges, especially when the target was only the wife of the person he holds the grudge against.
      Putin favoring Trump to win the election just doesn’t add up. He already had Hillary in the palm of his hand and had many favors he could call in due to the donations to the Clinton Foundation. Trump was/is a nationalist whose policies were to rebuild our military, unleash our energy supplies, remove our entanglement with destructive trade agreements and climate agreements, revitalize our economy, and return our status as to the leader of the free world. All of these things would directly countermand Putin’s ability to exercise power around the world. I can’t see any rational reason why Putin would prefer Trump over Hillary, let alone meddle in our affairs to bring that about.

      • Bull Durham says:

        From my Russian friends in Crimea and Russia and here, the reason Russian people and the Russian government would favor Trump was Clinton meant war. Probably in Syria, and also in Ukraine. Trump was not-Clinton. They expected nothing more.
        Russians don’t care who the President is. They know he can be limited by politics and distractions. And that is exactly what has occurred.
        But, Clinton was hell bent on conflict with Russia, especially once they entered Syria.

        This also blows up our foreign policy in Ukraine bigtime. They meddled.
        It wasn’t the Russians.
        Everything has Ukie fingerprints on it.
        And as this unfolds, Putin may provide hard evidence to the investigation by DOJ.
        He is a lawyer by training and they have central investigations bureau that amasses all the crimes done against them or blamed on them.
        It’s like the radar readouts on the NK missile proving it wasn’t a ICBM. Now the South Koreans say so also.
        But this is far-reaching, has many culprits, and is festooned with lies and deceptions.
        Grand juries will be on this for over a year after it gets “investigated”.
        The biggest scandal in American history, and now clearly seditious and intent on taking down DJT.

          I will never forget the infamous Asst SOS for European Affairs Victoria Nuland’s remarks on the Ukraine Crisis. “F**K the EU!”
          “On February 4, 2014, a recording of a phone call between Nuland and U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, Geoffrey Pyatt, on January 28, 2014 was published on YouTube.[14][15]
          The State Department and the White House suggested that an assistant to the deputy prime minister of Russia Dmitry Rogozin was the source of the leak, which he denied.[16][17][18]
          In their phone conversation, Nuland and Pyatt discussed who should be in the government after Viktor Yanukovych’s ouster and in what ways they might achieve that transition, with the name of Arseniy Yatsenyuk (whom Nuland refers to as “Yats”) coming up several times. Specifically, the two spoke about which opposition leaders they would like to see in government, what pitches they would give each opposition leader in subsequent calls to achieve this, and strategies on how they would try to manage the ‘personality problems’ and conflicts between the different opposition leaders with ambitions to become president.[15][16] Yatsenyuk became prime minister of Ukraine on February 27, 2014.[19]
          In the recording, Nuland makes an obscene reference to the European Union.[20] After discussing Ukrainian opposition figures Nuland states that she prefers the United Nations as mediator, instead of the European Union, adding “Fuck the EU”, and Pyatt responds, “Oh, exactly ….”[15][21]

      Years ago my mom trained to do handwriting analysis for the FBI and she was very good at what she did. Freaked me out growing up because she could “see” what I was up to or how I was feeling just by checking my school work.
      Through the years I learned a lot about handwriting analysis — nothing like my mom, but some fairly basic things I watch for in other people.
      Although foreign writing is often harder to read, there are still things people do when they write “just because” — kind of like smiling is universal — so are some moves of the pen.
      Nataliya Veselnitskaya has a long name with only 2 characters that go below the “line.” Look at her signature at the end of the filing in District Court and you see three loops below the line, loops that are extremely large in comparison to the middle section of characters (acemnorsuvwx letter heights). Marks below the line show many things depending on many factors. Excessive size of marks below the line generally tell two things, drive and energy in business and in bed.
      Ms. Honeypot’s signature shows she may have been just that — a corrupt and evil carrot dangled before one of the Trump men.
      I’m with you rsanchez, you just don’t honeypot a Trump.
      As an aside I find it fascinating that our President and First Lady have signatures that are so similar it confounds me. It is amazing. I have never seen two people with such similar signatures, let alone a husband and wife with them. To me it says a lot about who they are as a couple and why they are each others greatest allies.

        Regarding the characters, in Russian cursive (and I have to assume she signed her signature in Russian cursive since the document states she knows no English and needed a translation) her name would have only one character that goes below the line, so those marks below the line are even more excessive than they need to be.

          I saw somewhere that the NYT story had a large edit history. The thinking is they were going to run the story either without Goldman’s emails or with selectively edited Goldman emails and just use quotes from Goldman from an interview he gave the NYT.
          When DJT jr. went public with all the emails first it blew that apart because what Goldman wrote in the emails didn’t match what he told the NYT (or what the NYT decided to ‘hear’).
          The NYT won’t be able to say DJT jr. hacked the emails as they most likely would have done if the NYT published edited Goldman emails first.
          The reporter was most likely building a collusion narrative. That’s why his snarky tweets said DJT jr. actually admitted to it himself. That’s a stretch taking the email chain in full context, so if he continued the NYT article with that accusation and it went to print it would get debunked immediately and serve as a reference point for a defamation lawsuit.
          He was probably told the story is over, dead in the water, we’re dropping it, so he pitched a fit on Twitter where it isn’t officially a NYT release.
          I think the ‘working on it a year’ is BS and he was told to say it.
          If the NYT gets a report today from Trump’s side with solid evidence of the Clinton campaign meeting with Russians they would be almost forced to run it or risk a defamation lawsuit (IMHO) by DJT jr. They may have put the ‘working on it a year’ qualifier out there so they can say they have to research the Clinton collusion story like the did the DJT jr. one before they run with it.
          Comey is definitelyplastered on the radar because of his NYT building visit recently and the set up by the Russian girl as a pretext to unmask Trump campaign staff safter a FISA request folds nicely into Comey walking it into the NYT.
          That’s just my take.

        I remember hearing that LSD clown Timothy Leary, of all people, saying that DC was completely corrupt; and the best thing that could be done was get rid of it and establish five other cities as “working capitols”….Laughed at the time, but not so much any more.

    • MTeresa says:

      I understand your sentiment, but many have family in DC – military folks and can’t imagine them being hurt. As much as it looks as though the corruption is everywhere, it is not. Of all of the political systems in the world, guess what? Ours is the best by far – no contest. We have corruption just like any other country as SD said, we need to find the white hats.

  120. Thurstan says:

    I favor the setup scenario. Natalia etal detail in email record the basis for Russia info dump. They have meeting to complete the setup. That was all they needed to accomplish. Once present at meeting they have no major substance and no follow up. Actual meeting was only a ruse since the reason for FISA baloney had already been successfully put in place.

    • wolfmoon1776 says:

      I think they may have been fishing, too. Hoping a family member would reveal something useful, like what Trump had on Hillary, even if indirectly. It sounds like they did some arrangements in the open, but then on the side – off paper – they tried to sell to Don Jr. the opportunity to “get information”. They may have hoped that repeated questioning, against protestations of “no information”, would reveal what the Trump Team was interested in, and thus what they might have known already.

    • distracted2 says:

      Exactly. Because Trump is clean. All they had was an Access Hollywood tape that didn’t have the effect that they thought it would.
      This was a plan concocted, just like the dossier, in an attempt to take Trump out.

      Yep Comey did this. I bet this has to do with the fisa. Remember Nunes saying that people were being unmasked on the campaign. Also he was shocked at what was in the unmasking. Washington is so nasty… Both sides = uniparty = Obamacare = trillions of dollars at stake. They used to think we were stupid now they just don’t care. I’m not tired of winning yet. I seen turtle yesterday. Reporters were asking about Jr. He let go of a couple grins. They know this is a sham.

    a tidbit
    Michael McFaul, the U.S. ambassador in Moscow from 2012-2014, was accused by Russian state television of seeking to orchestrate the overthrow of President Vladimir Putin after hosting opposition activists and Kremlin critics at the embassy in his second day on the job.

    I can’t believe(well I guess I can) that the MSM is acting like Rob Goldstone is some Russian bad guy. This is nuts, there isn’t an actor or news hack out there who doesn’t know who this guy or his business partner David Wilson is. Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Anderson Cooper, Geraldo, Robert Di Nero, Michael Jackson, Kathy Griffin, Quentin Terantino, Donny Deutsch, Clive Davis, David Foster, Betty White, Hoda, Joy Behar, Katie Couric, Matt Lauer, Judy Collins, Lady GaGa, and almost anyone else you can think of. Funny thing is, Emin has a new record coming out this summer. Wow talk about good timing, I never heard of Emin until yesterday.

  126. LoveTheSmellOfCOVFEFE says:

    This Reddit post puts the pieces together + pictures of the villains together:
    SUMMARY: The DNC in May of 2016 BEFORE THERE WAS ANY HACKING planned to use Emin to connect President Trump to Putin since he was in a music video of his. Kerry met with Emin’s father in law in May of 2016, one month before the meeting was requested with DT jr. in June. The Russian lawyer who attended the meeting was spotted with Emin 8 days later in Congress (who let them in?) AND is connected to the Fusion GPS fake piss dossier.

    • wolfmoon1776 says:

      This is amazing. AMAZING. It’s a wikileaked DNC email showing collusion between the DNC and Hillary on MUHRussia BEFORE the convention. LOL! They copy Hillary and the DNC as they snarf up the video.
      Yes – this is mid-May. Seth Rich is presumably aware of this downloading and storage of videos, and he sees that Hillary is basically running the show.
      OMG – what if Seth Rich tried to inform the FBI about the MUHRussia conspiracy?

  127. Troublemaker10 says:

    Kushner and Manafort did previously reported this meeting.
    Forget Don Jr.’s email — it’s Hillary Clinton who ‘colluded’ with Russia
    In the Times’ first story published Saturday, reporting a meeting among Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort, and a Russian lawyer, the meeting is curiously described as “previously unreported,” despite the fact that both Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort disclosed the meeting before the Times’ reporting.
    The Times’ own reporting admits this several paragraphs down and then adds, “Because Donald Trump Jr. does not serve in the administration and does not have a security clearance, he was not required to disclose his foreign contacts.” In short, this meeting, which was portrayed as nefarious across several anti-Trump media outlets, was disclosed and openly reported by its attendees – Kushner and Manafort.

    • nimrodman says:

      Nice catch

    • Howie says:

      Did Kushner and Manafort disclose it? Why would they if she was not a Russian official? Trump haz got to put a stopper to this scheme. Declass it all and pardon all his friends and associates. Grounds…BAD Faith. It is in the public interest to bust this wide open,,,NOW!

    • Timmy-the-Ute says:

      Don Jr. was not part of the official campaign. The closest he cam was that he was a delegate at the convention. He was under no obligation to disclose anything. Until he was under investigation. Kushner and Manafort were part of the campaign and why they were at the meeting, and why the honey pot contacted Don Jr originally rather than say Manafort. It was a set up.

      • Howie says:

        A sting to get FISA, That there is a crime. Too bad it will not be pursued by the legal authority. They would have to indict themselves.

  128. RC says:

    An astute acquaintance has noticed that Donald Jr.’s willingness to meet with Natalia Veselnitskaya in the summer of 2016 strongly suggests, if not proves, that Donald Sr. had no prior / ongoing relationship with Vladimir Putin.
    If Donald Sr. was really that close to Vladimir over the previous 1 — 2 — 5 years, anything Natalia had to offer about Hilary’s Russian activities would have been duplicative / second hand at best.

  129. keebler AC ovfefe says:
    While Trump’s ACA is fighting a battle against uniparty, this is a timely warning against single-payer systems – doctors get indoctrinated and start to behave like hostages who start to empathesize with their bureaucrat captors to survive. Patient care suffers as a result.

    • DebbieUK says:

      I worked in the NHS with many doctors and believe me they don’t know everything. They are under pressure to empty their beds and especially the elderly get booted out of hospital when they are still unwell. Charlie Gard is a symptom of that. For the rest of us there was the scandal of the Liverpool Care Pathway.

    • elleb77 says:

      I believe the UK will reverse the decision on Charlie Gard. The pressure is great and growing. Bad optics.

      • bofh says:

        Difficult for them to reverse – they would either have to admit that the whole death-panel concept was wrong over-all, or else that there was an error in this specific death-panel judgement (which destroys the necessary faith in the infallibility of their bureaucratic process). Either way it should stir up big unrest in a populace that was paying attention. This is as much a test of the Brit people as it is of the Brit government, and I’m not optimistic.

  130. Aqua says:

    Thank you all for putting out the real story. Hannity did a good job with his interview of Donald Jr. tonight, and Donald Jr is as strong as his father. This is nothing g but a political hit job by the Dems and far worse, by the media.
    Now I want to see all this part of the story get revealed to the rest of America. Or will the fake news just dodge the truth once again?

  131. Realist says:

    Ohomo and his lying corrupt undemocratic DemoncRATS and disgusting evil RINO’s like McCain have their grubby fingerprints all over this.

  132. Adjudicator says:

    Every time one of these fake news Russian “gotcha” stories pops up, it always turns on the Dems and the Obama Administration. This June 2016 meeting with Trump Jr. was an obvious set up and has DNC/Obama fingerprints all over it. As President Trump recently tweeted, the real crimes that took place were (1) spying on Trump campaign officials/family members; (2) unmasking; and (3) leaking. There should be a DOJ investigation into all of this because it probably goes right up to Obama (“What did the president know, and when did he know it?”). People like Rice, Brennan, Clapper, Comey, and several others, potentially including Obama, should be investigated.

    I think it’s time for President Trump to take off the gloves and bring the Democrats who have broken the law to justice. If they think they can impeach the President on trumped up charges inflated by the Marxist MSM, then it’s time for the law breakers in the Democratic Party to face the American people and see justice served. The President owes this to the American people. We’ve been lied to, used, and deceived by the corrupt Mainstream Media/ Democrat Party. Initiate an independent counsel to look into Comey’s leaks, move on to Lynch with Bill Clinton, Hillary, and Obama. They all need to be brought to justice. No more Mr. Nice guy Mr. President, because these people are not nice people.

    Whoo boy! This is some spicy meatball! Much too byzantine for my feeble intellect. They are all going full tilt after the Donald after his yuge win overseas. Collusion is now a crime in the media, equated with treason. Dan Abrams just declared that the meeting is a violation of campaign finance law and that Mueller will be investigating. See how it works?

    • Howie says:

      I predicted this many moons ago. They will go after all family, friends, and associates. Sessions weak recusal haz left him vulnerable. It led direct to Muelley. No matter how you slice and dice it.

    • Crystal says:

      How can this be a violation of campaign finance law when no money changed hands? Yet we just read on this page or the first one how Hildebeast was allegedly accepting campaign donations from foreign powers and how Mook told her to accept the Russian one also.

      • Nunya Bidness says:

        A matter becomes a violation of campaign finance law when Dan Abrams says so. You clearly did not attend the same law school as Mr Abrams who is keenly attuned to the ever-shifting nuances and penumbras of the living law. Plus he looked right into the camera when he said it, and he has a nice tan.

        No both Manafort and Kushner have noted this meeting on their disclosure forms, although Kushner only did so on his updated form.

        • Howie says:

          Recantation of an error is a valid defense if made in good faith. Sessions should have recanted and not recused. He did not make the errors on his form in bad faith.

            I thought that the penumbra from the Good’nPlenty clause made “recantation” a defense only for Democrats. Sort of like “Going into Rehab”..

    It’s interesting that this is one time when it is good that people don’t pay attention to the news. Most don’t know or care about the Dem’s hissy fit about a make believe Russia story.

    Assange: I urged Trump Jr to release emails on Russian lawyer before NYT story

  140. Comrade Mope says:

    Interestingly, the media is starting to do timelines. On May 19, 2016, Paul Manafort took Corey Lenandowski’s job. Three weeks later this Russian lawyer gets a meeting with DJT, jr. That’s just days before this whole Russia thing blows up.
    If the Russia collusion narrative was used to support the FISA warrant, then Manafort’s connection to the Ukrainian government would explain the Russian set-up. And Manafort’s early departure.
    Also, this Don jr. angle must have been known by both sides as Team Trump has been on top of this as soon as it was published. Obviously, Team Trump saw it coming. Conversely, the Deep State had this information since June 2016, why now? This is the last gasp of a dying narrative.
    The media didn’t show this much concern when candidate Obama was colluding with the communist FARC rebels 18 days after announcing his candidacy.

    • Howie says:

      Russia is a Bad Faith Scheme by the whole Deep State, CIA, FBI, DOJ, MSM. As such it should be called out and busted wide open by the President. It is tainted through and through and a criminal conspiracy to remove our President. Senators Juan McCong and Linda are main players too. Goat Roper and Pence are looking at 2020. The stinking swamp is vast and deep. Washington is at total 100% corruption level. It is not going to stop unless the president stops it. This is not business as usual.

      • benifranlkin says:

        Now what exactly Howie do you propose the President should do to stop the Russia flack? I personally believe the President should accept Jeff Sessions’ resignation and appoint an already vetted interim head of the DOJ. All of this nonsense going on goes right back to Sessions recusal and weakness in the line of fire. Say what u will of Eric Holder but nothing like this would ever have happened to Obama because of his AG in charge.

        • benifranlkin says:

          And the Pres should fire Rosie, too…and not because Rosie won’t fire Mueller because he hired him for the witch hunt.

  141. Papoose says:

    Here’s my theory… several weeks ago Comey’s friend and cohort tweeted “tick, tick, tick” and alluded to a bombshell that was going hit that weekend. Nothing was reported. Then Comey shows up at the NYT building for an event that wasn’t identified and there didn’t seem to be any other comings and goings of VIPs at that time…. Did Comey with his wife as a decoy deliver hard copies of the DT Jr.’s emails? Were they carried in his wife’s huge handbag. Did the NYT hold off dropping their article once all their tracks were covered? Did Comey deliver them himself to ensure that there was no trail as to how the NYT got the emails?
    Who set up the Trump campaign? Is Comey involved with the expose?

    • Howie says:

      He has to be. He is the lynchpin. Muelley is working with him in the cover up. Rosey has to be dirty because he appointed a main line swamper.

      • thetrain2016 says:

        Too much confusion. The key issues are, Mueller was appointed to investigate the Russian involvement in the 2016 elections, not to investigate President Trump. His scope of work extended to investigate any wrongdoing and criminal activity that surfaces during the base investigation. That means, after clearing the Trump campaign based on lack of evidence, the investigation going to turn against the Democrat conspirators who initiated the whole circus. That will include Obama, the Clintons, Podesta, Comey, Lynch and the whole cartel. To think differently is the admission of distrust toward President Trump and his judgement.

  142. Nunya Bidness says:
