Ramifications of Oleg Deripaska and Contact By FBI in September 2016…

John Solomon’s report on the FBI contacting Oleg Deripaska in September 2016 for help to structure a narrative of Russian involvement in the Trump Campaign via Paul Manafort has multiple ramifications.   (Article Here) Here’s some preliminary thoughts on the issue.

♦In 2009 the FBI, then headed by Robert Mueller, requested the assistance of Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska in an operation to retrieve former FBI officer and CIA resource Robert Levinson who was captured in Iran two years earlier.  The agent assigned to engage Deripaska was Andrew McCabe; the primary FBI need was financing and operational support.  Deripaska spent around $25 million and would have succeeded except the U.S. State Department, then headed by Hillary Clinton, backed out.

♦In September of 2016 Andrew McCabe is now Deputy Director of the FBI, when two FBI agents approached Deripaska in New York – again asking for his help.  This time the FBI request was for Deripaska to outline Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort as a tool of the Kremlin.  Deripaska once hired Manafort as a political adviser and invested money with him in a business venture that went bad. Deripaska sued Manafort, alleging he stole money. However, according to the article, despite Deripaska’s disposition toward Manafort he viewed the request as absurd.  He laughed the FBI away, telling them: “You are trying to create something out of nothing.”

Several issues make this interesting:

#1.  Was the DOJ/FBI trying to use Deripaska to frame candidate Donald Trump?  Was this part of their 2016 insurance policy?

-or-

Was the FBI (Deputy Director McCabe) looking to duplicate the use of Deripaska for financing a covert FBI operation in 2016, just like Andrew McCabe did in 2009?

#2.  John Solomon reports that Deripaska wanted to testify to congress last year (2017), without any immunity request, but was rebuked.    Who blocked his testimony?

#3.  In 2017 Oleg Deripaska was represented in the U.S. by Adam Waldman.  Mr. Waldman was also representing Christopher Steele, the author of the Dossier.  Waldman was the liaison Senator Mark Warner (Senate Intelligence Committee Vice-Chairman) was using to try and set up a secret meeting with Christopher Steele. {Text Messages}

As you can see from the text messages (more here), the House Intelligence Committee wanted to interview Deripaska.  However, based on their ongoing contact and relationship Deripaska’s lawyer, Adam Waldman, asks Senator Mark Warner for feedback.

If Deripaska was blocked from testifying to congress, it was obviously not from the HPSCI (Nunes Committee), but rather by the Senate Intel Committee, Mark Warner.   Why?

#4.  Why would Adam Waldman and Oleg Deripaska (personally) be reaching out to John Solomon now to share the story of the FBI conduct in 2016?   Why now?  There were sanctions levied against Derispaska’s business interests by the Trump administration in 2017.  Does his hope to get sanctions removed/lessened lie behind a current motive?

#5.  Attorney and Lobbyist Adam Waldman represented both Oleg Deripaska and Christopher Steele.  This does not seem accidental.  Was Deripaska part of Steele’s network?  Or, more alarmingly, was Christopher Steele working for Oleg Deripaska?

Watch the first minute of this video. February 13th, 2018 Hearing:

.

Another question:  Was Deripaska willing to finance or facilitate the Steele Dossier, or some aspect therein, to the extent that it dirtied-up Paul Manafort – from a distance.  Yet when asked directly to participate he didn’t want personal attachment on dubious endeavors?

#6.  Did Robert Mueller omit any mention of Oleg Deripaska from his 2017 Manafort indictment purposefully?  Is some evidence against Manafort related to a Deripaska vendetta? Or, was Robert Mueller hoping to hide his prior professional work relationship with Deripaska?

#7.   On February 9th, 2018, Senator Chuck Grassley asked Deripaska’s London Lawyer, Paul Hauser, questions about Deripaska and his connections to Christopher Steele:

(Link to Grassley Letters)

Oleg Deripaska’s British lawyer, Paul Hauser, responded with the following letter:

A very lawyer-ish response.  However, based on the 2017 text messages unknown at the time Grassley made the inquiry, it would appear Chairman Grassley asked the wrong lawyer:

Senator Grassley should have asked Adam Waldman who was obviously representing Deripaska’s interests in the U.S.  {text message links}

♦Summary, there’s obviously a great deal that could be learned from testimony of Oleg Deripaska as to the nature of his engagements in/around 2016 and the network of known characters engaged in contact within the U.S. intelligence apparatus, both inside the U.S. and abroad.

The fact that Deripaska is openly willing to engage with journalists on this story and his involvement therein, could open a new line of inquiry about the validity and origination of the Mueller investigation.

Then again, a seemingly incurious media might find their Russian Collusion/Conspiracy narrative was built upon a fraudulent CIA/DOJ/FBI foundation…..

So…

If the usual suspects, New York Times, Washington Post and CNN, avoid the Oleg Deripaska revelations, well, we’ll have our answer.

        The FBI rewarded Deripaska for his help. In fall 2009, according to U.S. entry records, Deripaska visited Washington on a rare law enforcement parole visa. And since 2011, he has been granted entry at least eight times on a diplomatic passport, even though he doesn’t work for the Russian Foreign Ministry.

        Former FBI officials confirm they arranged the access.”

The Democrats have basically pinned the next 20 years of their party on Obama’s “legacy.” The Deep State that shuttled Obama into the White House will never turn on him.

        I think there is some evidence of a strategy that the globalists had hopes that Obama would someday become some sort of token global leader, possibly Secretary General of the UN. He’s a useful idiot in their future globalist plans as a “unifying” world figure.

        But as we’ve seen with prior presidential aides, you can go after them. Susan Rice, Valerie Jarrett, Ben Rhodes, etc – those people are in far more jeopardy from future investigations.

      Sorry, no deals should be cut before the American public gets a full airing of the corruption. If, after a full airing, POTUS wants to pardon some individuals (think Watergate), then that would be appropriate. But the American public needs to know just how corrupt our government has gotten – especially under the Obama administration.

      Elsewhere, I heard scuttlebutt that the Awans may be dragged into court soon and that when they are put on trial, there will be a mass exodus of Dems who were complicit in promoting the Awans activities. One can hope. Should that come to pass, a lot of the obstruction to the work of the Trump administration will evaporate.

    Deripaska would obviously be a central figure in the case against Manafort. They were business partners.

    Initially I *was* going to ask “has Mueller bothered to talk to Deripaska?”. Then I read this: https://www.emptywheel.net/2018/04/03/about-the-oleg-deripaska-reference-in-the-mueller-memo/

    Yikes.

    Now, what remains of my curiosity after reading that: If Congress is avoiding Deripaska like the plague, and Mueller’s interest in him is conveniently hidden from view and/or obfuscated and/or whatnot, and Deripaska is begging Congress to testify without immunity… Can’t Manafort’s lawyers call Deripaska as a witness? In fact, Deripaska can approach Manafort’s lawyers and say “*please* let me testify on your behalf!”. Then Deripaska can testify that the FBI approached him in a way that indicated they were trying to frame Manafort for the “Russian collusion” nonsense. Case closed.

    Last night I read on CTH the statement “that As McCarthy points out, it is not likely there was a singular FBI source buried within the Trump campaign. Instead it’s more likely that particular campaign aides were targeted and dirtied-up by unofficial intelligence operators like Stefan Halper.”
    (Andrew McCarthy Discusses The Ongoing Battle Between Congress and the Careerists Within the DOJ…)

    This morning it occurred to me…. Is this not what happened not only with Mr. Papadopoulos and
    Mr. Manafort, but also Don Jr (the ‘Natalia Veselnitskaya meeting’), and even one of the Trump computer systems where the FBI or someone detected ‘communication’ to a Russian computer (link: https://www.cnn.com/2017/03/09/politics/fbi-investigation-continues-into-odd-computer-link-between-russian-bank-and-trump-organization)…. that I believe turned out to be that a computer in Russia sent a ‘ping’ to a Trump computer, and the Trump computer automatically sent a ‘ping’ in reply?

    Just make contact, establish communication, no matter how you do it, and how trivial it is…. and do it so that there is ‘something’ for the corrupt Deep State and media to ‘investigate’…. and announce to the world. ‘Dirty ’em up’, as Mr. McCarthy said.

    Is this a pattern? …. or a strategy?…. and how widespread is it… how many times has it been employed?

    If it is a strategy, it is straight out of an episode of the 1960’s British ‘The Avengers’ TV show, where several foreign spies were filmed (without sound) talking to Mrs. Peel, the films were sent to British intelligence headquarters, and it threw suspicion on her. Her partner, John Steed, hired a lip-reader to read what the spies were saying, and it was stuff like “What time is it?” and other innocuous-seeming questions.

      I cannot say I know better but feel I may be able to add some at least verbal simplicity:

      Those people have been planting evidence and gaslighting their targets and the public to further control of their careers. Attending the nation’s business, ensuring safety for the people who elect their appointers is not in their repertoire of desires. They are corporate creatures only . . . and merely. Their goals are mean and their methods cruel. And their intelligence, Lord knows, is crusted over with base selfish impulses.

      They actually believe they can and should control the entire world from the platform of controlling assets of governments “ruling” residents of what was once the USA. In addition, they just enjoy messing people up. George Soros is a role model to them, a father and mentor. They have no loyalty to the US Constitution or US national sovereignty. That means they laugh away any and all laws inside what was once the USA . . . as Kamala Harris does.

      As the end drew near, Himmler pushed his office crews out into SS operational units with a view to “dirtying them up.” On that model, we watch today a drama which signifies the end of an era, not the start of one.

        This is why Sessions is protecting Hillary (co-conspirator in the conspiracy to obstruct justice) because the examination of her crimes leads directly to the White House and BHO.

      I’m not sure there are many white hats. Look at North Carolina senators Thom Tillis and Richard Burr for example. Why are they being duplicitous with Tillis creating legislation to prevent the Mueller investigation from ending and Burr keeping the Senate Intelligence investigation ongoing, despite the House Intelligence Committee closing their investigation? When you don’t know the answer, it is probably about money or CYA.

  17. I doubt that this will move Rosenstein’s needle one bit. Massive conflicts of interest by Mueller haven’t done it before, so why would this one do so either?

    Otoh, Sessions has no conflict of interest to speak of, yet continues to adhere to a recusal that now has no basis. And evidently never confronts Rosenstein about these glaring Mueller instances that keep piling up.

    Go figure … I’ve given up trying to sort it out.

      Wait, what? You acknowledge the conflicts of interest with Mueller, Comey, Rosenstein and McCabe with their various sordid pasts with Hillary and/or Russia, some going back quite a few years which we are always pointing out, right? So what enormous level of cognitive dissonance dies it require to be be blind to Sessions massive conflict of interest from membership in the recent 2016 campaign?

      He is head of DoJ which means he is in charge of investigations in FBI and DoJ of probably a dozen different people he is connected to through the campaign. They are investigating, both prior to and after the election, Flynn, Manafort, Page, Don Jr, Kushner, Trump and Sessions himself just to name the highlights. They have probably interviewed and investigated every other person connected within two degrees as well ( e.g., Lewandowski, Hicks, Bannon, Ivanka, etc ). Any of them present a challenge to Sessions being head of DoJ and therefore in charge of the investigation and would poison the results when he steps in and says Okay, we’re done, no collusion, let’s get back to work.

      How thick are the anti-Sessions jihadists to be this willfully blind? The goal here is not to terminate the investigations ( and thereby leave a cloud over Trump ) but to end them in our favor. Why don’t the low-info Sessions bashers just come out and say it, they want a corrupt person to run interference and just end this thing ( as if nothing but rainbows and unicorns appear on the horizon after that ). Admit it, y’all want Sessions to do exactly what we did NOT want from Reno, Holder and Lynch.

      Here is yet another clue. As Sundance has pointed out, the investigations under DoJ and FBI were already underway in summer 2016 ( and IMHO possibly back to 2015 ). Therefore … as long as Trump won the election there was going to be a conflict of interest with him inheriting the Justice Department and those very investigations into him and his campaign that were already ongoing. Scapegoating Sessions for doing the right thing is just sick. Giuliani and Christie would have done the same thing. As would anyone honest and not a leftist plant.

      The problem here are fellow travelers to Team Hillary spread far and wide throughout the FedGov unrestrained by moral compass and willing to do whatever it takes to serve their agenda. Imagining that Sessions caused anything and if only he didn’t recuse makes everything else vanish is ludicrous. You should thank God he recused immediately because we would be so far back behind the curve right now it is frightening. And the Enemedia would not have stood still either. They would have pounded the Watergate drum for the past year and just now, today, we would be getting a special counsel, or worse a independent prosecutor appointed and we could kiss the Trump administration goodbye. We’re at the end of the hoax and about to flush the rats out now. But if y’all had your way we would be totally screwed instead.

          Focusing on the “investigation” misses the forest for the trees. And shutting it down *is* possible but dangerous. That was the enemy plan A. Load up countless investigations and then when Trump slips up and demands his team shut them down ( remember they were even getting his phone calls in the oval office so you know all other communication was likely “tapped” as well ) the enemy produces all the records of all the people being investigated along with Trump’s order to kill the investigations and hands or leaks them to Congress for impeachment ( this would be after a year or two of Enemedia pounding the Watergate drums demanding a special prosecutor ). That was roughly Watergate 1.0 and all it demanded for a repeat was a mistake from Trump they would document ( they tipped their hand with the Trump to Comey statement to go easy on Flynn just weeks into the Trump administration ).

          Of course it has no basis in fact, it comes entirely from their imaginations, with a bit of projection too since everyone except for Trump was colluding with Russia ( and others ) for years. The problem with the perpetual angst among some alleged Trump supporters is the childlike OCD latching onto the “investigation” or “Sessions” as a pressure release valve to vent their frustrations. If Trump was as impetuous as these children he would be gone already.

          We want a successful conclusion to the investigation and hoax. Not just any conclusion because most conclusions do not lead to rainbows and unicorns. Most lead to a tainted Trump administration stained with the stench of corruption. The best conclusion is exposing all the rats and nailing them to the wall with mountains of evidence, so much that they plea out and rat out more rats until the swamp is drained. All this while keeping in mind the double and triple standard protecting the rats through corrupt juries of their peers ( more rats ). Now people can understand the extraordinary effort required here and the almost insurmountable mountain they faced once we won the election? It was always going to be a nightmare because the enemy rats don’t just roll over and die. They were always going to be here and we must consider is it better they are quietly hidden in place working against us, or exposing themselves daily in an ongoing coup where we can turn the tables, document their actions and contacts and then roll them up with sufficient evidence.

        You’ve been writing about ‘failing to indict’? Do you even know what an indictment is? I doubt it. But start your research with the Fifth Amendment which covers felonies since that is what we are talking about.

        Prosecutors like an attorney general don’t indict anybody. A grand jury does when it sends up an indictment. Prosecutors seek an indictment. And there’s the rub. We’re talking about securing indictments of rats in a jurisdiction that is 93% or higher made up of rats. And then there is secrecy. We have no way of knowing whether a grand jury is seated for a particular purpose like indicting a rat perp, nor do we know when they fail to send up an indictment, unless someone talks and that is illegal.

        Sessions is not obstructing justice, he is recused from Trump-Russia-campaign related cases. By recusing he avoided obstructing justice. Why? It is quite simple. Imagine if he went to the President-Elect in early January 2017 after his hearing and said I will need to recuse from cases that involve us ( Trump, Sessions, the campaign, etc ). Now I want you to complete this thought right now. What does Trump say to Sessions? Is there anything at all he can say that will not be considered obstructing justice? Sessions likely saved the Trump administration right then and there by NOT discussing his possible recusal and you should be able to figure this out by now ( hint: he didn’t let the President-Elect do something dangerous, he protected him ).

That is the only explanation looking back the way senators treated him as if he was part of a Russian collusion just because he had contact with Russian diplomat. He was set up they listened in on him with his meeting as Senator and Russian diplomate. Nothing unusual but they made it as such.
        He bumped into the Russian just said hi and forgot and they made a bit deal out of it.

      This latest revelation is more evidence that Mueller is conflicted and that the FBI is crooked. However, it pays to keep an open mind until the IG report comes out.

      One of two things will happen …. a. it will be disappointing limited and narrow, and then a full throated attack against the the DOJ under Sessions can proceed without opposition … b. it will contain a ton of damnning information derived from the flippers, Priestap, etc, and it will lead to a Big Wallop of sorts. Along with P Trump taking decisive action.

      It looks like that there is some positioning being done by the baddies until then, but I still have some patience.

    Add to the mix, that many confer to Sundance as being infallible, as if he knows more than is being attributed to the ‘slow walk’ ‘trust the plan’ narrative at any given moment.

    HERE IS A QUESTION? Is it possible Congressional Oversight Nunes and Grassley could have been groaded into pushing this request (demanding) on the DoJ to release redacted names to Oversight? If so for what purpose?

    If anything is clear, the reports from Sundance’s desk inquiring about this. From the start of OMG Nunes is threating impeacement of Rosenstein over this issue to the RABBIT HOLE where the ‘muh russia’ investigation now finds itself. With multiple new actors from Wagner, Warner, Deripaska, Hauser and etc. Oh, how we do find ourselves in the deep weeds of the swamp.

    HERE ARE SOME QUESTIONS? Are we chasing our tails? Is it by design?

    Come on, a 2009 FBI/Deripaska effort to free Levinson is now the nexus to connect ‘muh russia’ to Mueller as lead actor in the continuing saga of the ‘small group’ frame job on PDJT.

    JUST GET A PODIUM FOR Horowitz, and lets us all get out of the way.

    Enough with this trust the plan outlook, because it is increasing looking like ‘the slow walk’ is creating much confusion.
    Ever hear of the saying “couldn’t see the forest for the trees.” Well, IMHO that where all this is heading, the more details added to the ‘muh russia’ investigation. The more likely everyones eyes become glazed over. The more likely the MSM is going to be enabled to regain the moment that has been lost through analysis of how bloggers are talking about and trying to make sense of the latest news articles.

    With more confusion comes the potential of walking into detail trap that creates reasonable doubt where there should be no reasonable doubt.

      I understand your point, and have felt it at times myself. As more names and more dirty deals unfold, it makes it very difficult to keep things straight and to follow timelines and co-conspirators. With so much info not in the public domain, we are left to try to figure out what can be proved and what is nothing more than plausible theories.

      I live in CA, where conservatives are in the minority but fighting back. There are candidates running for re-election in the primaries here who are actively campaigning on a proud platform of blocking PDJT and “resisting”. Every night, a lot of low-information voters are watching these ads on every channel. If the IG report was out, and even better if there were some indictments announced – that could be HUGE for the outcome of the primaries here.

      If the general public can see that Feinstein is tied in to the misdeeds there is a chance she would not be able to breeze through re-election. We could get a Republican candidate on the final ballot for Governor. We could look at getting more Republicans in the House, and also in our state legislature. But none of that will happen without a catalyst BEFORE our primary. Without such a catalyst, some good people will not even make it to the November ballot in my state, and I’m sure other state as well. September and October will be too late in many cases.

      At some point, decisions need to be made about what makes it to the IG report, and what will have to come in the next wave. Time is running short.

    But God and the American electorate intervened. We got Plan B instead. It will fail as well – because of God and patriotic Americans ( you know who I mean, people like Adm. Mike Rogers).

    I was raised by a women who had an uncanny ability to dissect the worst in human nature, of course precisely, and that filter, maybe crystal ball would be more accurate – could not be turned off, “you can’t un-see the strings.”

    It’s not like the rest of us are fools nor even cynical, no it’s just that there is another level where not just the king, but all the participants and even those simply watching the parade, are seen to be naked.

    It is the ONLY explanation that i can offer for this unrelenting barrage of insight attained by grabbing a tree limb here, at CTH.

    Imagine seeing the world in such raw truth, day in and day out? It would drive many insane. There’s only so much red pilling the average person can take.

    So God bless you SD that found such a positive way to exercise that ability and as good as it is for our Republic, I have to believe such an outlet helps keep you from going stark raving mad.

      I know what you mean, and I often read others saying similar things, but I never understand it.

      ‘Red Pill’ is just truth, and how can there ever be too much of it? The reason we have so many problems is because we’re swimming in a sewer filled with lies, 24/7.

      Without truth, we can’t exercise proper judgment or make sound decisions, about anything.

      A world of black & white TRUTH should be like air and water to us, we should be repulsed by the thousand shades of gray and lies and corruption that is all around us.

      Let the sun shine in.

      More red pills, and fresh horses for all my men!

      Truth is the natural state of being.

      This world of deception and lies that we live in, it may be what we have grown accustomed to, but it is unnatural.

      We are predisposed to ‘red pill’, i.e., to truth. That’s how we all started out in this world.

    “In 2009 the FBI, then headed by Robert Mueller, requested the assistance of Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska in an operation to retrieve former FBI officer and CIA resource Robert Levinson who was captured in Iran two years earlier. The agent assigned to engage Deripaska was Andrew McCabe; the primary FBI need was financing and operational support.”

    _____________________

    Can you imagine if you’re Robert Levinson, and you’ve been captured by crazy islamists, and you are in an Iranian prison, and your best hope is bureaucratic CYA weasels and traitors like McCabe and Mueller.

    That poor man. Put yourself in his shoes for a moment, when hope is all you’ve got, and at the other end of that hope is a back-stabbing treasonous dirtbag who took $750K in bribe money from the Clintons via Terry McCauliff, ostensibly for his wife’s bogus political campaign, and who is up to his neck in trying to overthrow the United States government.

    Why isn’t there a team specifically tasked with finding and rescuing Americans who are taken hostage or falsely imprisoned around the world?

    A team that has no creepy bureaucrats, corrupt ideologues or career self-servants, but instead consists of capable, qualified and motivated military?

    I’m not talking about a new ‘Department’ with a new bureaucracy for the S.E.S. and the Muzzie Brotherhood to infiltrate and corrupt. Just a unit within one of the military services. It wouldn’t even need to be a large team. And it would cost practically nothing compared almost anything our government does.

    Saving American lives should NEVER be left up to people like McCabe, and rescue mission decisions should NEVER be made by people like Benghazi Susan or the former Secretary of Corruption.

    • Scott- thanks for an EXCELLENT post. I wonder if Levinson even knew that his only hope of being rescued was with the treasonous traitor McCabe.

      Also, with all of the money that the FBI, CIA, etc. have in their budgets, why TF are they looking for a RUSSIAN to finance a covert operation to rescue one of our guys?

      How much do you want to bet that somehow all or most of the $25 mill went into McCabe’s pockets?

          It shouldn’t and it’s not supposed to, and the very good reason it’s not supposed to is that Americans become TARGETS for kidnapping if it is known that Uncle “Money Diamonds” Sam pays ransom.

          If we don’t pay ransom, if all you get for your effort is a quick and painful death in the middle of the night, nobody takes Americans hostage.

          The whole ‘ransom’ thing is just another corruption by Hussein.

    Who ordered Brennon to initiate the dirty tricks and spying on the Trump campaign? Come on now, this isn’t at all complicated. We all know the ultimate power center of the executive branch is the President and “all the Presidents men.” And who was President in June 2016 Barack Hussein Obama. Yup, Obama ordered it, and the Whitehouse gang carried it out. They liased with the Clinton Campaign on the spying and dirty tricks (Steele Docier) even after she was ultimately exposed in the Wikileaks email dump as an agent provocateur in the Primaries. With her huge stash of campaign money, Clinton bank rolled all of the dirty tricks against Trump until the FBI got the FISA warrants put in place by a corrupt FISA judge. That’s when the real sedition began with DoJ and the FBI carrying out sophisticated survelliance on Trump and associates. Admiral Rogers, a true patriot, discovered the sedition and stopped NSA involvement and then alerted Trump that he was being survellied. Trump goes on to win the election. The Obama insiders in DoJ/FBI immediately try and hinder the new President until he fires the seditionists.Then the Deep State goes kamakazi and bring in Mueller. Mueller was the last ditch barricade to stop Trump after all else had failed. Fortunately, Muellers now been exposed as an anti-Trump, uber Deep State partisan and more than likely, his appointment by Rosenstein as a Special Council with an unlimited scope was illegal. I expect he’ll be gone sometime before the Forth of July.

    No doubt, this whole mess is going to be exposed and blown wide open with the pending IG report. Let’s hope it calls for prosecutions of the entire seditionists Obama/Clinton cabal.

      They expected her to do this. She is the “DC” judge & sees things differently from Judge Ellis.

      Also notice she doesn’t have the un-redacted order from Rosenstein & didn’t ask for it.

      “Aug. 2 Mem. at 1–3.
      16 Much of the memorandum is redacted, reflecting the fact that unlike the
      Appointment Order, it was not worded broadly for public release. The unredacted portions of the
      memorandum state explicitly, though, that the Special Counsel was authorized from the start to
      investigate the defendant not only for coordinating with the Russian government, but also for
      violations of law arising out of payments received from the former President of Ukraine. So even
      in the unlikely event that the Acting Attorney General and the Special Counsel never discussed
      what the investigation included at the time of the appointment, the singular event that defendant insists would be necessary to make his indictment valid – an explicit referral of the specific matter
      to the Special Counsel – has taken place”
