Yesterday Was Peak “Muh Russia” – The Lanny Davis Gig Isn’t Turning Out The Way Media Intended….

The pesky thing about the truth is its figurative ambivalence to any feelings or emotions that surrounds it.  A few counter-intuitive media appearances by Michael Cohen’s lawyer, Lanny Davis, highlights this point succinctly.

Chuck Ross at the Daily Caller has been brilliantly monitoring the statements by far-left Clinton sycophant/convenient Cohen lawyer, Lanny Davis. Two big admissions today are toxic to the previously preferred media narrative.

In one interview Lanny Davis tells CNN, per his client, candidate Donald Trump had no knowledge of the Trump Tower meeting between Don Jr. and Natalia Veselnitskaya.

(Via Daily Caller) […] “So Michael Cohen does not have information that President Trump knew about the Trump Tower meeting with the Russians beforehand or even after?” CNN’s Anderson Cooper asked Davis.

“No, he does not,” replied Davis, a longtime Clinton insider who started representing Cohen earlier this summer.

Davis’s bombshell statement severely undercuts a July 27 CNN report that Cohen was willing to tell special counsel Robert Mueller that he was in a meeting when Donald Trump Jr. told his father about an offer to meet with a group of Russians who wanted to provide dirt on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.  (read more)

In a second, earlier admission, lawyer Lanny Davis undercut the preferred narrative surrounding the validity of the Clinton/Steele Dossier:

(Via Daily Caller) […]  Davis dealt another major blow to the allegations of Trump campaign collusion when he said in an interview with Bloomberg News that the Steele dossier’s allegations about Cohen are “false.”

“Thirteen references to Mr. Cohen are false in the dossier, but he has never been to Prague in his life,” Davis said.

The dossier, which was funded by the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee, alleged that Cohen visited Prague in August 2016 as part of a “clandestine” operation to collude with Kremlin insiders to influence the 2016 election. Dossier author Christopher Steele claimed that Cohen arranged payments to hackers to carry out the scheme.

“Never, ever, ever in Prague,” Davis reiterated in an interview on MSNBC later Wednesday.  (link)

The intelligence mistake of Michael Cohen traveling to Prague, is a direct-line thread connecting the FBI/DOJ FISA(702)(16)(17) database searches to Fusion-GPS, contractors, and the Steele dossier.  As such there would be a very strong motive for similarly aligned political entities within the U.S. intelligence apparatus to take strong action to cloud the connection.  In short they have always needed to lower and cloud the connection.

Thus the origin of the July 31st, 2016, FBI Counterintelligence Operation against candidate Trump began as an unofficial outcome of an unofficial CIA referral (John Brennan) connected to unofficial contacts with political and intelligence people within the U.K and Australia.  An unofficial and Machiavellian construct.

After Donald Trump won the election, all of the aligned intelligence entities -including Obama officials therein- were now at risk.  Hence “the insurance policy”. The issues extend beyond the unlawful activity of the DOJ and FBI; however, one of the trails of their collective activity ended up inside the Steele Dossier with the false fact surrounding Michael Cohen in Prague.

The intelligence apparatus needed to create something, anything, that removed the connection; and, as if on cue…. one of the original leaks from the Mueller Team specifically targeted this threat:

The Justice Department special counsel has evidence that Donald Trump’s personal lawyer and confidant, Michael Cohen, secretly made a late-summer trip to Prague during the 2016 presidential campaign, according to two sources familiar with the matter.

Confirmation of the trip would lend credence to a retired British spy’s report that Cohen strategized there with a powerful Kremlin figure about Russian meddling in the U.S. election. (read more)

This is where it becomes critical to remind yourself of how far this group went to manipulate the outcomes of the election.  Do not sell these Machiavellian-mind people short.   Remember, one of the key benefits of the raid on Michael Cohen was to create the architecture underneath fabricated media narratives (stories). The actual content of evidence captured in the FBI raid was/is irrelevant; at the time, they needed the basic element of truth -that the raid took place- as the foundation downstream propaganda.

The U.K., Australia and the U.S. intelligence apparatus, foreign (cia) and domestic (fbi/doj-nsd) collaborated to influence the 2016 U.S. election outcome.  As such, those same entities had a vested interest in creating a false series of facts that removed the threat within the false Michael Cohen Prague visit.

The “small group” of Mueller activists within the DOJ and FBI needed to create any alternate appearance in order to cover for the very real likelihood the intelligence apparatus used Christopher Steele to launder search outcomes from the abuse of the U.S. FISA database (NSA, FBI and DOJ-NSD).   This Mueller crew needed to create a plausible way the specific Cohen event could have made it into the Steele Dossier without using U.S. intelligence databases.

The raid on Michael Cohen initially created the basis for affirming a false claim. The use of friendly foreign intelligence to potentially substantiate false claims was the plausible deniability they need.  Everything is essentially propaganda.

They knew they would lose a fact battle, so they chose to fight a propaganda war.

…that’s the essential argument made by James Comey’s friend Benjamin Wittes in his plan of action written in October 2016 when he described the “insurance policy” – in his outline of what to do in the unlikely event Trump wins.  You might remember that Wittes was the friend FBI Director James Comey used to leak his memos to the New York Times.

Remember this?

          Trump’s Number One most important responsibility in the Constitution is to see that the “laws are faithfully executed.” To direct Sessions to NOT pursue the Hillary violations is failing to see to it that the laws are faithfully executed. Trump has to see to it that Hillary’s machinations are investigated, and should do so immediately. Failure to carry out duties required by the Constitution is an impeachable offense, so he should just get on with it. Investigating Hillary is the main thing would give him the leverage he needs.

          Trump’s lawyers keep telling him firing Sessions would look too much like obstruction, so he doesn’t do it. Meanwhile, the other side keeps fishing for a crime. This needs to stop.

      Maybe the best evidence for this is Avenatti the porn lawyer leaking banking information about multiple Michael Cohens.

      I figure Avenatti teamed up with the Mueller investigation, or he teamed up with Fusion GPS or Perkins Coie, which means they teamed up with Mueller. No way Avenatti gets that info outside of government surveillance.

      It’s also proof the Mueller investigation centers around the dossier allegations. BTW, is Jeff Sessions investigating why the Mueller Counsel has been leaking so much forever?

        Davis has said he consulted with senior Trump aides, including Steve Bannon and several other associates and lawyers, as they sought advice on responding to Mueller’s probe.

        Joseph diGenova, an informal legal adviser to Trump, said Cohen made a smart move by hiring Davis. “Very professional, very skilled and articulate public spokesman,” said diGenova. “It sounds like Michael Cohen should use a spokesman and shut up and get off television. That might be the best use of his time.”

          From all indications I’ve seen Lanny Davis is a “realist” about the obviously fake dossier, but a “fantasist” about saving the Mueller investigation by believing Trump’s comments about Hillary’s missing emails was an order to Russia to hack the DNC. The Russian-Trump hacking “collusion” was clearly a part of the dossier that tried to align itself with the Hillary campaign’s argument strategy.

          The FBI bought it all the way. Proof–Halper in Sept. 2016 trying to get Papadopoulos to talk about hacked “emails” as if that would show the Russians felt they needed to pre-inform any body about their hacking plans.

          That is 100% Hillary campaign and the dossier in action.

            Trump’s comments about Hillary’s emails on live tv were not unlike his recent comments about “collusion! Where’s the collusion? I hope somebody finds the collusion.” He was being somewhat facetious. For Muellerto act like that initiated the alleged “hacking” is disingenuous or, Mueller’s a nitwit. The server had already been hacked and it and other devices destroyed.

    “This is where it becomes critical to remind yourself of how far this group went to manipulate the outcomes of the election. Do not sell these Machiavellian-mind people short.”

    What they are doing is mind blowing. I heard Chuck Toad suggesting Paul Ryan needs to start looking into judicial committee hearings on impeachment. Like that is going to happen. They are starting to sound so absurd. They are very nervous, as they should be. Sedition and treason has consequences.

    IMHO I don’t think their devious scheme will hold up in the IG FISA report. I’ll wait. I expect to see all these people arrested in due course. I will ignore the fake drama and help candidates win the 2018 elections.

  6. Just consider: if you had been elected President of the U.S. in an upset win, and then accusations came up that you colluded with a foreign government, but you knew those accusations were completely baseless, how would you act in office?

    And on the other hand, imagine you had indeed colluded with a foreign government, how would you act?

    My guess is that if you knew it was all a lie, you would keep on doing your job as previously planned. Which is basically what PDJT is doing.

    If you knew you were guilty, you would likely spend energy on a tit-for-tat political battle to maintain your power, because power would be your goal, not doing what you promised during the campaign. It is the Clintonites and their media that have been all about power, not policy.

    I think so often that Trump is the perfect guy to be dealing with all of it. Thanks to his businesses and the litigious leeches who try to scam money from him, he’s a pro at being sued and dealing with some pretty hefty legal matters that would make an inexperienced person super nervous. Even Bill Clinton made a fatal mistake which ended up causing him to be impeached. What’s he dealing with now is no doubt his biggest challenge but I think he’s into it. Mueller doesn’t like that, nor do the rest of the Dems. 🙂

    Sessions seems to be supporting the the DOJ-FBI narrative that “trump-conspired with the russisns-but hillary didn’t”, and the trump-russia conspiracy was so bad we need to raid offices and get to the bottom (bd pun) of the stormy/playboy-National Enquirer russian conspiracy to take away hillary’s coronation. The manhattan madam must be part of the russian-caused loss of hillary’s election, in view of the massive vigor the DoJ-FBI are pursuing it.

    But if Trump as President asks for investigation of the hillary/perkins-coi/fusion-russian or clinton pay-for-play foundation, “unmaskings” during the obama administration, “leaks” of classified info, fraud on the FISA Court, backdoor scheming of the Ohrs with hillary-DNC-fusion-steele, etc., Jeff Sessions responds by announcing “While I am Attorney General, the actions of the Department of Justice will not be improperly influenced by political considerations. I demand the highest standards, and where they are not met, I take action”.

    Whew, the g-forces of Mr. Session’s actions are overwhelming! There is certainly no political bias in pursuing Stormy Daniels while ignoring DNC/perkins-coie/Fusion/Derispaska/ russian collusion with the FBI to insure against Trump election, or hiding McCabe’s/Strzok/Ohr/Page “private” emails on government equipment. Stormy Daniels must have been conspiring with the russians to destroy our voting, We know more about Stormy Daniels than John Kennedy-Maryln Monroe, his french call girls, and others. We know more about Stormy Daniels than about FBI payments to Fusion-Steele-Ohr for anti-trump propaganda, or who Strzok actually worked for, or the “secret” FISA warrants. What reason could there be except for political bias to keep the FISA Warrants (rejected and granted) from Congress or the public? If the FBI put spies in the trump campaign, or the British helped hillary’s campaign against trump, or the FBI had DoD pay Halper/Mifsud/Skirpal/ to spy on trump, we and congress need to know about it – irrespective of any “secrecy” claims to cover up.

    Mr. Sessions must be spending all his time with Huber, secretly racking up 10,000 indictments of FBI conspirators and leakers!!

    Sorry for the rant, but Sessions claims of “no bias” are worse than even the DOJ/FBI IG finding that the FBI’s Strozk and others had no bias in setting up a scam “insurance policy” to stop Trump, while granting immunity to all hillary’s perps, destroying evidence and hiding the weiner (“insurance policy”)-DNC-Seth Rich-Awan computers. No bias there, thats for sure !!

      The IG FISA report will blow this latest narrative out of the water when it is released. Timing is everything, and they have no need to tip their hand in the dull days of August. From what I have seen this administration do in so many fields, I would never sell DJT short. The President is the apex predator and the C-in-C.

      I believe he knows everything, and will deal with it in good time. He is going to screw these people for what they have done to him, his family, his presidency, and the country. It’s in his DNA. Pray for him.

      Plus, the longer this goes on, the more bad actors get exposed. Fascinating times we live in. The next two months will be interesting.

    I have to say I’m suspicious of the circumstances that brought Lanny Davis in as Michael Cohen’s attorney. Is he a Trojan Horse? How in the world did he advise his client to take a plea deal that included the so-called campaign finance law violations of an excessive in-kind contribution.? This whole situation looks like the same playbook used to entrap members of Trump’s circle with “colluding with Russians”. A former ally of the Clintons becomes part of Cohen’s defense to convince him to plead guilty to a “crime” that can be used to implicate Trump? It’s been reported the plea deal did not include a requirement for Cohen to cooperate with the Special Council. Why is Davis even talking about offering more information about what Trump may have known regarding these NDAs set up by Cohen? This is bewildering.

    However, Lanny Davis’ statement opens up a curiosity. Who/What was the source? And why were Davis, Cohen, et al, advised to remain silent? This story has been out there for almost a month. Davis referred to an ongoing investigation. Was he just blowing smoke? Or was some kind of leak catcher exercise going on?
