    Mr. Hannity seemed to be a little more irritating than usual this evening ( I am annoyed by his repetitious statements nightly, like a skipping vinyl record), because I was particularly keenly aware of his interruptions of Mr. Caputo’s remarks.

    • People, in general, these days seem to want to blather on before one even finishes what they are saying. So, they also never really seem to understand the entire concept of communications with the person they never actually listened to.

      It’s always irritating, and just one of the reasons I can’t watch him, but I can scroll past him. 😀

        Hannity loves to repeat his “list of offenses” to frame the narrative. Recall when Rudy Guiliani was on, HE interrupted Sean’s litany of Hillary Clinton’s Fusion GPS/Perkins-Coie/Christopher Steele “laundering money through a law firm” to throw out the story about Cohen being on retainer he was never paid by the campaign, the reimbursement for the Stormy Daniels payment was from personal funds.

        It seemed like an own goal (although it was pre-planned to throw it out there, to counter the campaign finance angle), but Hannity could barely shut up long enough to let Guiliani say it.

        The only person Hannity is careful not to interrupt is Mark Levin. I cringe every time Hannity says bleachbit,or any of his stupid, not so clever sayings. I cannot bear to listen to his opening monologue. After listening to his annoying voice I feel like I have been yelled at for 20 minutes.

        Hey guys….let’s back off Hannity’s irritating qualities right now…..WE NEED HIM. He’s got a BIG voice right now…….Levin is getting with the program, hellz…even Rush yesterday
        (Yes I listen at least once a week on all of them, just makin’ sure they’re up to speed!!!)
        was flabbergasted with AllHatNoCattle. One other thing about Rush, the points he was speaking of before he spoke of Gowdy lead me to believe that he too is getting with the program.

        Now…no matter what ever issues anybody has with any of these guys……right now, WE need them, so we’ll use them. I don’t know what each one’s particular numbers are, I could care less really….but I suspect they have a huge audience reach…..which means more and more are getting some of the info we’ve been writing at this joint for years. When you listen to some of their callers (I only listen to their radio shows) you can hear it in the callers. Most of the callers are saying……Well I don’t understand it all – but we in heap-big-trouble!!{my interpretation)

        It was a good thing he interrupted carter!!!!! Carter Page is his own worst enemy. The tv interview followed the hannity radio show interview of carter page that was an absolute train wreck. Carter did way better on tv. BUT still if you have read any of his self aggrandizing academic writing letters to the committee and pro se court filings then you know that the russians trying to recruit him as their spy were being very generous when they called him an idiot. He is not sympathetic AT ALL

        • Still, Page is deceptive enough to make the Russian who he bugged believe he was the ‘idiot.’ –Annapolis grad–Navy–Marine intelligence Western Sahara.

          However, Page’s testimony before Congress, as his other interviews, matches not the credentialed expert in foreign policy he claims, but the doctorally challenged–twice rejected–Carter Page. https://knsteffensen.com/2017/12/30/carter-pages-phd-and-the-silence-of-soas/

          He has been especially evasive about his meetings with Halper–‘just a few [scholars] exchanging ideas??’

          Being an under cover employee for the FBI, enabling the head of the DOJ/NSD, John Carlin, to nail a Russian spy, and writing to James Comey “…having interacted with members of the US intelligence community including the FBI and CIA for many [decades…”] makes Carter Page [at least] a suspect spy contractor. Stefan Halper was in that community for ‘decades.’ Did Page know him? Page–an unpaid Trump volunteer who testified he lives off his investments/savings?? Cash pay-offs are cleaner transactions–face to face==hand to hand?

            Perhaps Page, who had just finished a couple of months earlier testifying on behalf of the fbi in the 2012 case where he was an fbi uce,…… perhaps page knew and agreed to being the mole who would be used as the fisa warrant target for his bossed to get the goods on trump. Why assume he was innocent of that when he was prior in full cooperation? It would have been illogical even to him as an innocent that the fbi would suddenly turn on their own informant after years of service…. he never mentions that they turned on him.

        RB, part of the problem can be if they are in diffeeent studios there is a several second delay so that Hannity may have not heard when the others start speaking. Ever notice that on your local news station when they go on location, and they break to the reporter “at the scene”? There is a delay before the reporter in the field gets their intro in their earpiece and knows they are live. You usually see them standing their listening to what we just heard the studio reporter say.

      I know he is an ally, after all he was golfing with President Trump. IMO he would be more effective if he would let his guests speak what is on their minds. We know what and how Sean thinks. I do not recall him interrupting guests on his radio show like that. I have not listened in awhile.

      “explain things in the form of baby food”

      There are way too many people that are like that spiritually.

      1Corinthians 3:1 ¶ And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ. 2 I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able. 3 For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?

      I agree. Hannity needs and tries to present this extremely complicated story in the simplest
      way possible (and under severe time-pressure). No easy task!

      However, he does suffer from the same failing of so many others do in the political and media world. They only talk, never listen!

      The first time I became aware of how bad it was, was when I followed the Scooter Libby trial (via Clarice Feldman’s reporting). There was one taped discussion between two media giants (Woodward of Watergate fame was one of them, but I have forgotten who the other one was) that was considered important for the outcome of the trial. I got really confused listening to the conversation. It was – to me at least – patently obvious that after the first couple of minutes the two journalists were discussing two different things, but they seemed both unaware that their counterpart was talking about something else. This is what happens when all you are interested in is output. As a corollary to this observation l came to the conclusion that none of the witnesses in this trial could be trusted. Many of them were asked to recollect conversations they had had years ago, and when one of the star witnesses obviously was unclear about what was being discussed in real time, clarity would not be gained by the flow of time.

      Sometimes the general public needs a beginners course. We at TCT range in “degrees” of our world knowledge from BA’s/BS’s all the way to Post Doctoral degrees. SD is such an excellent teacher because he has the ability to teach us all regardless of level. Sean Hannity is trying, has a platform and an audience. He has truly helped to hammer this story home to the general population on both his radio and TV show AND he has not backed down (except maybe with SR but I get that one). I understand your critique of his shows and interviewing skills but as I tell my political friends he is the Sesame Street version of the political theatre and we just have to appreciate him for all he’s doing to educate those who take the time to watch him. Any way the message of the politicalcorruption and our dishonest media gets out I appreciate. My mom always told me to change my attitude to gratitude and it’s helped me these past 50 plus years 😉❤️

      • Busy exec- you are so right about Sean! It’s true (and actually pretty funny) that he has his nightly litany of catch phrases “bleach bit” “bought and paid for dossier ” “computers smashed with hammers ” etc. but given the fact that the American Public has the attention span of a flea it is absolutely necessary for him to repeat like that.

        The people who read Sundance’s work at TCTH are a rare breed these days as you mentioned. My guess is that we are for the most part older and wiser than most of the commentators on other blogs that I read. We actually READ and THINK about what is posted.

        Sean is fantastic for doing what he does, the way he does it. He never waivers in his support for our President Trump either.

        And your mom was right!

        Agree. I can mute the first three minutes (he does the same on radio). I remind myself that people need to be continually reminded, (or informed if they are just starting to question what is going on). As PDT says, “complicated business.” I can’t even keep up, but we need to remember where/when this all started, and to be honest, who brought it to us.
        It must be frustrating to have tried to get the word out on Obama, be proved right, then not be listened to AGAIN; not to mention the personal threats he receives.

        Hannity’s been annoying since the Hannity and Colmes days in the final years of the Clinton administration. Sorry, Sean. That said, he’s consistently the most on-point and unabashed prominent talking head on issues of govt./dem corruption across the past two decades.

        Certainly since the ghastly ’08 election. Particularly throughout the slow exposure of this ongoing coup d’etat.

        I understand Sean communicates with the President on a regular basis. That by itself speaks volumes.

        We (Real America) must not allow another dem in the Oval Office. That party’s been void of any honorable, uncorrupted, members in government for a number of years now and it’s plain-as-day that isn’t going to improve. They just keep doubling and trebling down on what former generations would have little trouble identifying as sedition and treason.

        Unless they’re defeated, everything good in this country is in peril. Until PDJT’s victory, I expect most of us believed we were well past the “tipping point.”

        Trillions of dollars at stake, as SD repeatedly reminds us. I cannot think of any unscrupulous bad actors throughout history who wouldn’t (and in their own time didn’t) opt for corruption and power over freedom, decency and common sense when money and power were accessible.

        PDJT is changing the rules and creating a climate of success and optimism for the country. Upon his election I knew he’d be a two-termer. One needed look no further than his words, the quality of his children, and the mutual rapport between him and his supporters at the countless rallies.

        That said, who among us could have predicted the sweeping successes of his administration beforehand? Even absent the thorough deck-stacking and weaponization of agencies we pay for by the prior admin. and perpetual media “collusion” with the dem’s efforts to destroy him, who else could have accomplished so much in such a sort span of time?

        God did this. Our VSG is His unlikely vessel. This coming from a twenty-year professed atheist, recently reformed, who’s been paying attention much too long to fail seeing his presidency as the unlikeliest miracle. Our President [sic deliberate in the unlikely case some English teacher wishes to quibble pedantics] was the clear catalyst.

        We’re still relatively early into PDJT’s eight years. He’s already eclipsed the accomplishments of President Reagan in my view. In my childhood, Reagan ended the Cold War and brought back our economy and optimism in the nation. Our current President [sic purposeful] is fighting and winning against a far more existential threat to our republic and the world.

        “MAD” kept the Soviet nuclear and conventional threats at bay. But for PDJT’s victory, tenacity, instincts, and love for our country, America would have ceased being any guarantor of peace in a world that would otherwise have imploded.

        Taking us with it.

        We all know with a high degree of confidence where we and our future would be headed had hillary [sic intentional] won last November.

        Long-time Freeper, now Treeper, if you all will have me. Many Freepers hold a dim view of Treepers, sorry to say. Mainly on account of fatigue awaiting long-overdue justice. Not this one and there are many more. I spend more time here absorbing SD’s postings and the great threads than at my assorted online Alma Madres.

        If we’ve had a president equivalent to President Trump, it was George Washington. Full stop. As a life-long history buff, I long ago gave up the dream of having a president of that caliber in my lifetime.

        Evidently God isn’t yet ready to bring this world, insufferable to us, to its conclusion.

        I’m in California and was in the most violent action at the Battle of Berkeley Easter of last year. The Berkeley police took from us anything that might have been used as a weapon and then “stood down” when Antifa attacked. They had rocks, clubs, M80s with bear mace, iron knuckles and other weapons. We won that little engagement, took and held several blocks of their “territory.” Thereafter we entered local restaurants and bars proudly attired in all our patriotic regalia as if we owned the places.

        That was a game-changer. I’ll never forget the eclectic assembly of patriotic freedom-lovers at that Freedom of Speech gathering, how we pulled together, how it felt to be among so many like-minded Americans. Everyone doing their all. Everyone behind our new President [shame-free sic].

        We are so numerous and SO MUCH MORE MOTIVATED than our pathetic foes. Antifa are, apart from a few hired brawlers we can also easily dispatch, just so many p*ssies. Just like the rest of our enemies. PDJT has shown us that we will prevail if we stay the course and remain united in our own common interests.

        Better than CWII by a long stretch. I have a five-year-old daughter.

        We have just the leader we’ve been pining for since the early 90s. Thank you SD, thank you Treepers! Let’s win this thing!!

          Page is an Annapolis graduate. Carter Page never met Trump, as he admitted freely in the interview. This means the list of Trump’s “foreign policy advisers” WAS a kind of “crib sheet” to get the media and GOP bigshots off Trump’s back about “foreign policy advisers.” If Comey hadn’t taken the list seriously, and called a meeting of (of all things) THE NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL about this list of “foreign policy advisers” for Trump, this story would be considerably different in that Page and Papadopoulos might never have been involved. Being on that crib sheet is what sucked them into it. They picked Page and Papadopoulos because they are younger guys, ambitious and “on the make” to get ahead.

    He implies a story about a plan or duty that ends in betrayal, and he won’t elaborate. He looks pissed, bewildered, and hesitant.

    I have been trying to follow the string for how Carter Page actually got into the Trump campaign. Every time I go back and google, I find another nugget. The whole thing feels dirty to me.

    1. Carter Page reaches out to Ed Cox, who was head of the NY GOP. Why not reach directly to the Trump campaign? Because apparently Page worked for Cox in 2008?

    2. “But for Cox, referring Page to the Trump campaign manager at time in late 2015, Corey Lewandowski, was a courtesy extended to someone he knew from the 2008 presidential campaign of Sen. John McCain of Arizona in New York.” Page worked with Cox for the McCain 2008 presidential campaign…

    2.a. Huh, how about that… “Carter Page — Chief Operating Officer, Energy & Power, Merrill Lynch & Co., Inc.” Good ol’ John McCain.

    Here’s his hedge fund, running $25 billion in transactions in emerging energy markets.

    3. But Sam Clovis is the one doing the hiring in spring 2016 ? Clovis is now the one generally accepted as hiring Page. So where does the above fit?

    3.a. March 11, 2016, Buryakov pleads guilty in case where Page is generally accepted as being an FBI informant. Days later he’s in the Trump campaign.

    https://www.justice.gov/usao-sdny/pr/evgeny-buryakov-pleads-guilty-manhattan-federal-court-connection-conspiracy-work

    3.b. March 16, 2016, Trump’s MSNBC interview, can’t name a single foreign policy adviser on his team.

    https://www.politico.com/blogs/2016-gop-primary-live-updates-and-results/2016/03/trump-foreign-policy-adviser-220853

    4. March 21, 2016, Trump name-drops 4 advisers after Super Tuesday, and Page and Papadopoulis end up being spied upon by the FBI.

    “Trump announced that Page and several other advisers were being brought onto the campaign during a March 21 interview with The Washington Post.”

    5. Carter Page speaks at the Moscow New Economics School July 9, 2016. Lewandowski can’t directly recall approving this trip, but later recants.

    6. Carter Page meets with Stefan Halper, July 11-12, 2016, at the “Race to Change the World” symposium.

Read his testimony in front of the HPSCI and read his letters attached to the document. https://www.scribd.com/document/371003011/Testimony-of-Carter-Page I think he was just looking for a career spot, he thought he could find work as a foreign policy adviser, and attaching himself to the candidate who was sure to be the GOP nominee and possibly become the next President would be an easy way for him to rise up …. except for the publication of the dossier.

      It’s starting to look like Carter Page, IMHO, is a Halper wanna-be. All the things Halper did and is doing working among several presidents and CIA/FBI & university gigs seems to be what Page wants to do. Many people in the IC appear to do this for a living. It looks to be very profitable, given that Halper got paid $400,000 for his work in this spying operation. Or Page may be someone who wants fame for all the wrong reasons. I don’t think he’s stupid and he’s just as likely another informant/plant as he is an innocent from what we know at this point.

  12. Carter Page, the (former?) FBI “asset”. The question is, why was he targeted for FISA surveillance if he helped the FBI in the past and was a known quantity to the FBI? Ahh, now that is the rub, isn’t it. FISA surveillance is used to dig out spies, like Russian spies, which Page has direct experience with. Was Carter Page being used as both HUMINT and as a SIGINT lamppost to comprehensively spy on everyone in the Trump campaign in order to find and/or “engineer” Russian collusion? I’d bet money on it.

    Maybe its just me but he has the strangest body language in his TV interviews, almost like he can’t believe he’s getting so much positive media attention. Or like he can’t believe how dumb everyone is that we think he’s somehow a victim in all this and that he has to play along with it.

    After watching I have a few points:

    1. Hannity needs to shut up and listen. What’s the good of asking a question if you don’t let the guest answer? His interruptions all ego driven attempts to show off how much he understands of the scandal, yet just reveal how little he understands. If he’s forgotten what guests told him last week, how can he be trusted to remember why Admiral Rogers shut down contractor access to the NSA data base in April 2016?!

    2. Carter Page was clearly targeted as a weak link because he’s an IC wanna-be.

    3. Michael Caputo is right, this was maximum effort. They came at the campaign from multiple angles. So fear of a non Deep State player winning in 2016 must have been extreme. Therefore the crimes of Deep State must also be extreme.

    4. Where was George papadopoulos? For that matter, where is George Papadopoulos? The conspirators never wanted a FISA warrant in the name of Carter Page, they wanted it to be George Papadopoulos. (trying to get Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska to dirty up Manafort was a last desperate option).

    5. Most importantly, Hannity needs to shut up and listen.

        MUELLER’S PLANTING FAKE RUSSIA COLLUSION “FACTS”
        E.g. that Mifsud (not named, and why hasn’t Mifsud been indicted) was only interested in Papadopoulos because he worked on the Trump campaign, etc.

        And yet, found a few days ago that Papadopoulos was already working at Mifsud’s outfit, LCILP, London Center of International Law Practice as early as 23 FEBRUARY 2016. Papadop only joined the Trump campaign on or after 6 March 2018 mtg with Clovis. Thus if Mifsud is like Halper, part of the cabal, Mifsud could conceivably have sent Papadop to join the Trump campaign. And Mueller would be covering up the cabal’s use of Mifsud.

    That really is dangerous for our country. Carter Page said if the CIA government asked to do something he would do it. And then he said well I can’t or I’m not allowed to discuss the details of those meetings or what they asked me to do.

  24. Here are a few questions for everyone that has probably been asked several different ways and times, but is relevant after this interview:

    Carter Page just admitted in this interview that he had been involved in helping the CIA/FBI. That confirms the analysis that he had been an informant for the FBI in the case that took down the Russian Polobny. His testimony was part of the case extended all the way to May of 2016.

    1. Did James Comey, Peter Strzok and Andrew McCabe know the specifics of this case Page was testifying in?
    2. Did the FISA warrant applications include information about Page being trusted by the US Attorney and the FBI to testify against these Russians only 2 months earlier?
    3. What is the rationale for Page working FOR the US Government in taking down some Russians in court, and him almost simultaneously being viewed as threat AGAINST the US? Is that rationale explained in any documents?

    Carter Page is still working for the CIA/FBI/Intelligence Agencies in some capacity. It is obvious. He NEVER, N*E*V*E*R directly answers any substantive question. In every interview I have seen of him, he comes across as extremely disorganized in thought, unable to focus on a question. No way that a person like that could be highly successful in business.

    Assuming his resume and Naval Academy information is genuine, it is obvious he is putting on an act. He answers questions like an 18 year old fry cook at Burger King.

    – Page was involved with US Intelligence Agencies for several years prior to him joining the Trump Campaign.
    – Those same intelligence agencies used him to get a FISA warrant against him, which allowed them to monitor the communications of him, everyone he talked to, and everyone those people talked to, if the “two-hop” rule is in effect.

    If Page talked to 30 people, and those 30 people each talked to 30 people, that means the FBI/CIA/NSA were likely monitoring at least NINE-HUNDRED PEOPLE. That 900 number is probably conservative, too.

    If your warning sirens are not going off now, they are broken.

        What if he has some kind of psychological disorder? It would be bad to attribute nefarious motives to someone who is simply suffering from a medical problem. We don’t have any actual evidence that he was a spy, I’m thinking we should not pursue that theory until there is evidence.

          So true…”We don’t have any actual evidence that he was a spy.”
          However, the FBI, DOJ, CIA and NSA, used that same Carter Page to justify the most widespread and intrusive surveillance program in American political history.
          Meanwhile, Mr. Page is the poster boy of passivity.
          What’s wrong with this picture?
          Hopefully, we will find out, very soon.

      It gets worse as a active.mole.he could have sent a bull email to everyone on the campaign and outside advisors and council. Perhaps he would ask for any ideas on say how to structure a Russian policy initiative. Perhaps he could include a.request to reply just to make sure his email is working. That would be a fairly effective fish. The respondence would definitely qualify as step one communication.

      Bryan,
      1. Did James Comey, Peter Strzok and Andrew McCabe know the specifics of this case Page was testifying in?

      Yes. The target of a FISA would be thoroughly back ground checked. They would HAVE to know all Pages connections to FBI.

      2. Did the FISA warrant applications include information about Page being trusted by the US Attorney and the FBI to testify against these Russians only 2 months earlier?

      Excellent question. The answer SHOULD be yes, this is very pertinent info. But they left out who paid for the dossier. If this info was also left out it is more malfeasance by the Justice Department.

      3. What is the rationale for Page working FOR the US Government in taking down some Russians in court, and him almost simultaneously being viewed as threat AGAINST the US? Is that rationale explained in any documents?

      Again, excellent question. In my experience US Attorneys are VERY careful who they put on the stand. They won’t use a witness if they think that witness has any baggage that affects the witness’s credibility. The FISA warrant MUST say why there was PC to believe Page was a spy,(and someone, had to swear that the info in the FISA warrant was true).

      I WOULD SURE LIKE TO READ THE FACTS IN THE FISA WARRANT.

        Yes. And perhaps they used the rationale with the FISA judges that this is another operation similar to Carter Page’s earlier one, where FBI used him to get data on Russian spies.

          But then again, if they used the Dossier to get the FISA surveillance approved, Carter Page is featured on many pages and described as having nefarious contact with Russians. Ai, ai, ai.

    Why bother with a spy or spies, when you can make an existing campaign employee or two, subjects of a Mega FISA warrant? And make everyone they interact with into a super spy.

    You know how a judge will award the defendant restitution for attorney’s fees in the case of a judgment for a defendant as a means to punish the plaintiff for filing a frivolous case? They need to do the same thing against these government witch hunts and have it come out of these scoundrel’s own pockets!

    • Oh, I noticed that. Why was the CIA involved in a counter-intelligence case in the US? The CIA doesn’t work in US Criminal cases. I can understand the CIA might have kick started this case. But once the FBI-CI case started, and Page was working with them, he wouldn’t be working with the CIA.

      This needs to be explored more thoroughly.

    The one thing that gives me hope about this interview is that we now have Sam Clovis unleashed. He said in the interview/panel that he is now out of the administration and the gloves can come off. I don’t know whether or not Mueller was expecting that particular move and I would imagine the consternation level went past 10 last night at the special counsel’s office and if Comey, Clapper and Brennan were watching they cannot view it as good that the intellect of Clovis gets unleashed on them. I don’t know much about the guy but with a Ph D they probably picked the wrong bull to mess with. I guess it was a small glimmer but maybe now we can start to hear the “spied upon’s” story that is someone other than Carter Page (and the obvious target POTUS/candidate). I expect it to get quite vicious once he digs in. Beware though the evil cabal may take matters to another level in the face of such resistance. I am saying that I am pretty sure the evil doers did not do all of the math to the point of going up against a PhD smart guy like that (unlike some of the other buffoonery like manafort, papadopolous, page, etc.). There’s lawyer-smart and there bona fide smart, and it will be an interesting and well fought battle if he can get the right legal help. (We’ll win).

  30. Everyone clear your mind a second and look at this objectively. Tell me what you think:

    – Graduate of a Catholic High School
    – 1993….. United States Naval Academy , Distinguished Scholar Graduate (Top 10% of Class)
    —– Senior Year Intern as a Researcher in SecDef Office (Les Aspin) for House Armed Services Committee
    – 1994….. Masters in National Securities Studies, Georgetown University
    – 1995….. 5 Years Stint in United States Navy (For a time was intelligence Officer)
    – 2000….. Fellowship at Council on Foreign Relations
    – 2001….. Masters in Business Administration, New York University

    So, what do you have at this point? Pretty impressive, huh?

    – 2000…..Merrill Lynch, Investment Banker, London Office, Vice-President Moscow Office, Chief Operating Office, Energy and Power Department in New York
    – 2008….. Started his own investment company, Global Energy Capitol
    – 2012…. Received a PhD from SOAS, University of London

    So tell me, at what point did he become “stupid”? How did he advance so far so quickly if he can barely answer questions on TV?

    Carter Page is the guy they used to get a FISA warrant, but you haven’t heard a single thing about Mueller or anyone investigating his time at Merrill Lynch or Global Energy Capitol.

    This guy has a PhD and was a VP at Merrill Lynch, but he can barely construct a coherent sentence in a TV interview?

    I’m still researching Spygate and trying to figure out some more of the players. Last night this was what was the Soupe du jour

    Spies for State Dept. is one track, but with Halper over in England (besides Steele)

    three individuals with ties to British and/or U.S. Intelligence.

    Joseph Mifsud
    Alexander Downer
    Stefan Halper
    Joseph Mifsud (shadowy creature)…

    Mifsud vanished in early November 2017, shortly after the Papadopoulos story broke, his whereabouts remain unknown.

    4 different meetings between Papadopoulos and Mifsud in March/April 2016. Papadopoulos met Mifsud in Italy week after joining Trump team….Papadopoulos, Mifsud, Olga Polonskaya met in a London cafe. Polonskaya’s real name is likely Olga Vinogradov April Mifsud introduced Papadopoulos to Ivan Timofeev, official @ think tank Russian International Affairs Council.

    Of course using the usual “hook”….During spying this guy Mifsud claimed to have met with high-level Russian gov officials with “dirt” on Clinton. Papadopoulos told the FBI that Mifsud said the Russians had thousands of Clinton emails.

    People say Mifsud is a Russian Agent, ties lead to UK Intel Julian Assange/Wiki talks about Mifsud/UK Intel here https://twitter.com/JulianAssange/status/976943598049558528.

    Of course it’s all hearsay until the missing Mifsud is questioned.

    There’s more…but these people are exhausting. 5-Eyes spying includes England, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and USA, which puts this in Brennan’s CIA sphere because it’s outside USA spying. See how they did that? But somehow it all ends up with Mueller.

    “Clovis, an Iowa political figure and former Air Force officer, met the source [Halper] and chatted briefly with him over coffee, on either Aug. 31 or Sept. 1, at a hotel cafe in Crystal City, she said.” [Clovis’s attorney, Victoria Toensing.] WaPo 5-18-18

    In the FOX News Hannity show, Clovis says he believes Halper used Carter Page’s name to meet with Clovis, and then used Clovis’ name to meet with Papadopoulos. Believes their conversation was innocuous.

    But I wonder – did their smart phones have a conversation on the side? Was Clovis’ phone contents including contact list being downloaded? Who gave Halper the email address of Papadopoulos for the 2 Sept 2016 email. one or two days after meeting Clovis? Something his atty could FOI – any Halper reports containing Clovis’ name.

      For example, did Halper and Clovis both pull out their phones, turn them on and exchange telephone numbers or something like that on Halper’s suggestion? Of course, we know thanks to Wikileaks, that Clovis’ phone could be listened to and hacked whether it was turned on or not. Perhaps we should consult not the Oracle of Delphi, but old Q from the James Bond movies, the gadget expert. 🙂
