      Previously posted in Nunes thread:

      Did the idea of the “Russian Consulate” noted in DOS Kavalec’s meeting w/Steele come from surveillance of Michael Caputo?

      I can’t recall precisely, but seem to remember Caputo mentioning his affiliation with the Russia-American Federation (in Miami?). Caputo states he began working for the Trump Campaign in Dec 2015 at the state level in NY, and moved to the national level in Apr/May 2016?

      In the first week of May 2016 he was approached by an “intermediary for a government contractor” with offers of HRC emails.

      Is it possible Caputo’s affiliation with the RAF “in Miami” was confused (intentionally?) by Steele/Ohr and referred to as the Russian Consulate?

    Strzok is screwed! He definitely knew Michael Cohen never went to Prague. The NIU (National Intelligence Unit) in New York City has a contract with the Airline Reporting Agency which has access to a central database of airline passenger ticket information. It is routinely available to all federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies without a subpoena or court order. The database will search by passenger name and provide every airline flight taken anywhere in the world including the date, time, flight number, airline, departure and destination airport code, credit card number used and ticket cost. How could anyone in the FBI, DOJ, CIA or State Department not find out in a matter of minutes that Michael Cohen didn’t fly to Prague?

    • Hmmm... says:

      I’m now even more convinced the date change in the FISA app was intentional. The Cohen to Prague bit is in a memo dated Oct 20. The DOJ was telling Nunes and the house that the FISA was submitted on Oct 19. This becomes really important if they know with certainty that he never went to Prague.

      I just went back and looked at the dossier leaked to Buzzfeed and what is kind of odd is that one memo is out of order date wise. It is the Oct 20 Cohen to Prague memo. It’s not proof of anything but it seems like it was intentionally done. Also, the Oct 19 memo mentions Cohen’s meeting but specifically states they don’t know the exact time or place.

      When you go back and look at the stories during that time the analysis from Sundance was that Nunes went to the FISC to make sure their copy matched the copy the DOJ was presenting them. Once they found out the true date then Grassley sent a letter noting this. As times goes along I’m beginning to think these Grassley letters that never lead to anything are actually signals to the bad guys updating them on what the House guys were uncovering.

      Anyway one thing that is certain is Nunes and the House guys were absolutely furious at the DOJ and Rosenstein right around this time period and I believe that this was the source of their anger.

        I’m gonna add a bit to this. I had forgotten about the other odd thing that fits this scenario. Cohen had been blissfully out of the news and not a Mueller or media target until January 2018. I suspect strongly that the reason Rosenstein was intent on hiding the real date of the FISA is that the FISA renewal needed to be passed.

        The vote for FISA renewal was Jan 11 and right after the vote was the big blowup meeting between Rosenstein and the House guys. This is when I think they found out that the DOJ had been lying (or perhaps refusing to unredact) concerning the FISA date. The first Cohen stories broke in the papers on Jan 12. I’m doing this from memory but think those are the dates and sequence of events. So if it was revealed the actual date was Oct 21 the Cohen to Prague story suddenly matters and in a crazy coincidence Cohen suddenly is targeted by the media, Mueller, and SDNY.

        It’s just odd that Cohen wasn’t targeted by Mueller earlier. Why not? Also that Cohen to Prague media story that kept popping back up in 2018. This all makes sense if Cohen to Prague didn’t need to be defended by the DOJ and Mueller and that was true as long as the FISA date was Oct 19 and not 21.

    DID TRUMP JUST PLAY THE DEMOCRATS INTO GIVING HIM WHAT HE WANTED?

    Congressmen Nadler isn’t the sharpest tool in the shed. Granted when compared to the rest of the Democrats he looks brilliant.

    Nadler is trying to play a political game of “got ya” ( ie contempt against AG Barr.) Nadler is colluding with the Fake News Media to spin a narrative that Barr is trying to hide something because he will not release the full Mueller report. (The full Mueller report is released and Nadler could have walked down the hall and viewed it, but he didn’t.)

    Is this a Trump Trap?

    Did Trump just manipulate the Democrats into now demanding “Full Disclosure,” something Trump has wanted all along?

    The latest is that Lindsey Graham is working to declassify the FISA docs.

    “There’s a document that’s classified that I’m gonna try to get unclassified that takes the dossier — all the pages of it — and it has verification to one side,”Graham told Bartiromo. “There really is no verification, other than media reports that were generated by reporters that received the dossier.”

    It’s the “Art of the Reel” and Trump just set the “hook”

      If all else fails, their goal is impeachment. We know this. It is why the GOP gift-wrapped the House, and delivered it to Nancy in the first place. Mitch gleefully handed Nancy that loaded gun.

      It’s not over.

      The FBI/DOJ/CIA continue to dangle potential obstruction charges, as their Enemedia will NOT let go of their Mueller novella. And if they harass Don Jr and the family into a perjury trap, any response by POTUS will be construed as RETALIATION.

    If you ever get used to President Trump’s tweets, think back to when President Obama talked about America. Almost everything he said was either apologizing for America or blaming us for something. President Trump’s tweets are exactly what a president should be saying about his country, that we are great people in a great country. and he encourages us to take advantage of our freedoms and abilities. It was only a few years ago that President Obama told us “you didn’t build that” to a small businessman.

    Although CTH does not like to address the US-Russia relations, no doubt due to the ongoing Russian hoax narrative that has finally been laid to rest by the Mueller report, no collusion, no obstruction, Sec of State Mike Pompeo met with FM Lavrov and met Vlad the Bad in Sochi.

    Here is a video on their joint Press conference after the meeting. Firstly, the Russian source blocks out Sec Pompeo’s face with their logo. Secondly contrast Sec Pompeo’s clear annunciation of areas of cooperation and areas of disagreements.

    As I have said years before, Lavrov is the consummate obfuscater, as folks say in America, blah, blah, blah. He puts you to sleep before he actually addresses an issue.

    Give Pompeo many Kudos, he pushed back gave reasoned answers, was holding an open hand on cooperation of many mutual interests and conflicts.

    He delivered the Trump administration position, time to rejoin the community of free democratic nations, or forever be caught in the cycle of distrust, despair, and a displaced and evil attempt to force the world to value conflict over peace.

        Thanks for the summary, A2. There is a balance between kowtowing to the Russian interfered narrative to avoid unnecessary controversy and dealing with the Real issues with Russia. We need to have good relations with Russia. As with China/NK, President Trump will (hopefully) walk a fine line between toughness, cooperation, willingness to get along but refusal to be screwed and an open desire for peace.

        So far, President Trump has avoided war. Pray he continues with Russia, China, all of both of their puppets/proxies and in the ME. I hope we only have a strong retaliatory strike (at most, if anything) re the Saudi tankers.

        NO more wars for other countries –>> esp. when our own country is being invaded by illegal aliens from around the world via visa overstays and illegal border crossers. They are a combination of physical/criminal threat and economic threat. President Trump says repeatedly that economic security is national security and even those illegal aliens who are not violent &/or drug traffickers, gang members, etc. are an economic threat.

        Anyway, thank you A2.

        And Sentient, I have disagreed with you over the years and have often found your point of views on the Russia issues on which you tend to most frequently post (Ukraine esp.) startling and invariably Russian friendly/anti US media narrative you do provide an alternative view and at least food for thought.

      I’ll give Pompeo credit for this: he gave the required, perfunctory lip service to “warning Russia against interfering in the 2020 election”. On the one hand, giving any credence to the assertion that Russia had any meaningful influence on the 2016 election is tolerating an ongoing lie. On the other hand, he preemptively neutralized any ridiculous suggestion that the administration is too cozy with Russia. Everybody knows Russia didn’t do sh*t in the 2016 election other than a little bit of online trolling (probably mostly for humor’s sake) and run a few Facebook ads – most of which ran after the election, but everyone in DC is supposed to feign shock and horror at “Russian interference”. It’s laughable.

          “Russia under Putin has major problems” Agreed, but not nearly as major as the problems they had before Putin.
          “their expansionist activities in Crimea, Ukraine, Syria…” The Russians’ stated rationale for their actions in each of these cases were as strong or stronger than the rationale for any American military action in the last 50 years. Crimea and Ukraine are on their border and have huge ethnic Russian populations. In Syria, they had as much business there as we did, and were at least partly motivated by a desire to protect Orthodox Christian communities from the fate their brothers faced in Iraq after the US took out a dictator there.
          “and now Venezuela” Agreed.
          “Try also to look at his domestic policies” I’m not sure which ones you had in mind. I’m sure there’s plenty to criticize from a distance. But Alexander Solzhenitsyn, who has long been a hero of mine, was a fairly enthusiastic supporter of Putin and his policies, which causes me to take a softer view of Putin than the Western media does.

      Naval History magazine, Feb 2008, volume 22, number 1, by Lieutenant Commander Pat Paterson, U.S. Navy

      “Questions about the Gulf of Tonkin incidents have persisted for more than 40 years. But once-classified documents and tapes released in the past several years, combined with previously uncovered facts, make clear that high government officials distorted facts and deceived the American public about events that led to full U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War.

      … These new documents and tapes reveal what historians could not prove: There was not a second attack on U.S. Navy ships in the Tonkin Gulf in early August 1964 {and some say there wasn’t even a first attack] . Furthermore, the evidence suggests a disturbing and deliberate attempt by Secretary of Defense McNamara to distort the evidence and mislead Congress.

      … We may never know the whole truth behind the Tonkin events and the motivations of those involved. However, it is important to put what we do know into context. The administration’s zeal for aggressive action, motivated by President Johnson’s election worries, created an atmosphere of recklessness and overenthusiasm in which it became easy to draw conclusions based on scanty evidence and to overlook normally prudent precautionary measures. Without the full picture, Congress could not offer the checks and balances it was designed to provide. Subsequently, the White House carried the nation into the longest and one of the most costly conflicts in our nation’s history.”

        I can’t, for the life of me, imagine that Repubs will try and step in front of Bill Barr. He is going to go as far as HE WANTS, and when he gets to what he thinks is THERE, he will stop. The big question is where he thinks THERE is, and I have little doubt it will likely be the best place to stop so he can help “salvage what we can”. We Americans will ultimately have to accept responsibility for subsidizing part of the trip to where we are now, through our selfishness and complacency, and it goes quite a ways back. We want our Medicare, our Social Security, our pork, our cutouts….all this and more has led to the power shift that has enabled our government to become what it is today. We deserve the government we put into place. “Something for nothing” leads to right here. Just look across the aisle, over your shoulder, over the horizon. We made it happen.

      CIA’s Creator Came to Regret It … Said the CIA Was a “Government All Its Own” Which Was Destroying Democracy

      President Truman created the CIA. But in the 1970s, he told his biographer, Merle Miller: I think [creation of the CIA] was a mistake. And if I’d know what was going to happen, I never would have done it. Now, as nearly as I can make out, those fellows in the CIA don’t just report on wars and the like, they go out and make their own, and there’s nobody to keep track of what they’re up to. They spend billions of dollars on stirring up trouble so they’ll have something to report on. They’ve become … it’s become a government all of its own and all secret. They don’t have to account to anybody.

      I see it differently. Norks have been fairly nutralised, so Chicoms can’t have them act up, to get U.S. concessions on trade.
      So, Chicoms are ‘playing’ their OTHER ‘rogue state’ card, Iran.

      Predictable, PDJT saw it coming, all along. Thats why his first trip outside U.S. was to ME, where he cemented alliance with U.S., Gulf states and Israel, AGAINST Iran.

      Much as with Norks, he won’t be distracted or disuaded by the ‘little stuff’, recognising it is empty threats/bluster.

      But, his demonstration to Xi, at mar a lago, IN THE MIDDLE EAST, with 50 cruz missiles, made clear what happens if Iran crosses his red line.

      And it doesn’t mean boots on the ground. No worries, PDJT has it all mapped out.

    How about this idea. What if … Obama’s ‘team’, were spying on the 2012 Republican Candidates. Something came through today in one of the interviews (Jo Digeneva) on when the spying started. Mention of perhaps as far back as 2012. We often say things like… Hillary was meant to win. If Hillary had have won, we would never have found out about any of this.

    How about Obama winning the 2012 due to ‘various’ machinations that were going on behind the scenes to sabotage the Republican victory? Given Obama won – we never got to see ‘how’ and what they did? Why I say this is because they were ‘so bold’ this time around. They were so cocky and self assured. I think its not too large a stretch.

      Heika,
      Well lets overlook your a little late to the party, and focus on celebrating that your here!
      Try 2008, maybe even during Bush admin. for start of it.

      So yeah, why did Romney take a dive, in 2012 second debate?

      Why did Roberts say “Yes, its a TAX!”

      LOOK at Republicon tickets, with hindsight; Romney, Ryan, McCain. The only MAGA was Sarah Palin, and Republicons lambasted the choice.

      Sheryl Atkinson (reporter) had her computer hacked,…its much bigger than a f’ing fisa warrant on Page.

      So, anyway! WELCOME to the party!

      It’s not a big stretch. However, the RepubliRats put up such weak candidates vs the media labeled “annointed one”… obviously they didn’t want the Presidency. With 0zer0 as potus, the rats could stay hidden…and spend, spend, spend.

      Former head of FBI? If he got serious time, he would HAVE to be in with the snitches and pedophiles, (protected custody) wouldn’t,….fair to well in genpop.
      Leavenworth, La Tuna Texas would be good places for him. If he only gets charged with slap on wrist crimes instead of something like TREASON, he could go to place like Cohen.

      Sempra Energy Celebrates Operational Milestones At Cameron LNG – 5/14/19

      SAN DIEGO, May 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Sempra Energy (NYSE: SRE) today celebrated the completion of construction of Train 1 of the Cameron LNG export project in Hackberry, La., with a group of international, federal, state and local officials, including the U.S. president and members of the U.S. administration. The celebratory visit coincided with today’s announcement that Cameron LNG is producing liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the first liquefaction train of the three-train facility, a major commissioning milestone.

      Sempra Energy set a goal in 2018 to become the largest developer of North American LNG export infrastructure, targeting 45 million tonnes per annum of LNG export capacity to serve global markets.

      “With a renaissance in domestic energy production, Sempra Energy is pleased to advance America as one of the world’s largest exporters of LNG,” said Jeffrey W. Martin, chairman and CEO of Sempra Energy. “We are committed to providing a cleaner fuel source to the global markets while supporting job creation right here at home.”

      Over 11,000 highly skilled workers have contributed to the construction of this U.S. energy infrastructure project, including welders, iron workers, insulators, electricians, construction workers, logistics professionals and other important vocations.

      Cameron LNG Phase 1 is one of five LNG projects Sempra Energy is developing in North America. Other projects under development include Cameron LNG Phase 2, previously authorized by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), which could include up to two additional liquefaction trains and up to two additional LNG storage tanks; Port Arthur LNG in Texas, which recently was approved by FERC; and Energía Costa Azul LNG Phase 1 and Phase 2 in Mexico.

      Cameron LNG Begins Production At Train 1 Of Liquefaction-Export Facility – 5/14/19
      “LNG Exports to International Markets Expected to Commence in the Coming Weeks”
      “SAN DIEGO, May 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Sempra Energy (NYSE: SRE) today announced that Cameron LNG has begun producing liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the first liquefaction train of the Cameron LNG export project in Hackberry, La.

      “Reaching this important milestone of first LNG production is truly a credit to the team at Cameron LNG and the work they’ve done to reach this point,” said Lisa Glatch, chief operating officer of Sempra LNG and board chair for Cameron LNG. “Cameron LNG expects to load cargoes in the coming weeks – another major step forward to bringing cleaner, affordable energy to global markets.”

      Cameron LNG completed all major construction activities for Train 1 of the liquefaction-export project and began the commissioning and start-up process in November 2018. Last month, the facility began receiving gas flow for testing as it reached the final stage of the commissioning process.

      Phase 1 of the Cameron LNG export project includes the first three liquefaction trains that will enable the export of approximately 12 million tonnes per annum of LNG, or approximately 1.7 billion cubic feet per day.

      Cameron LNG is jointly owned by affiliates of Sempra LNG, Total, Mitsui & Co., Ltd., and Japan LNG Investment, LLC, a company jointly owned by Mitsubishi Corporation and Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK). Sempra Energy indirectly owns 50.2% of Cameron LNG.

      Cameron LNG Phase 1 is one of five LNG export projects Sempra Energy is developing in North America. The other projects include Cameron LNG Phase 2, previously authorized by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), which could include up to two additional liquefaction trains and up to two additional LNG storage tanks; Port Arthur LNG in Texas, which recently was approved by FERC; and Energía Costa Azul (ECA) LNG Phase 1 and Phase 2 in Mexico.”

      If I were to guess, we don’t see our law enforcement on motorcycles around here much except for the occasional parade and they travel very slowly, so I think that maybe due to inexperience at traveling at higher speeds and road conditions might just have been the cause. I’m sure those involved will never be able to ‘brag’ about what happened, these cajuns down here wont letem 😛
