Laundry Disruptor – Rudy Giuliani Sends Letter to Senator Graham Outlining Ambassador Bill Taylor Efforts to Block Witnesses…

It was evident several weeks ago that U.S. chargé d’affaires to Ukraine, Bill Taylor, is one of the current participants in the coup effort.  It was Taylor who engaged in carefully planned text messages with EU Ambassador Gordon Sondland to set-up a narrative helpful to Adam Schiff’s political coup effort.

George Kent (left) – Bill Taylor (right), bagmen for the Foreign Service Office.

Bill Taylor was formerly U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine (’06-’09) and later helped the Obama administration to design the laundry operation providing taxpayer financing to Ukraine in exchange for back-channel payments to U.S. politicians and their families.

Today Rudy Giuliani has released a letter to Senator Lindsey Graham outlining how Bill Taylor has blocked VISA’s for Ukrainian ‘whistle-blowers’ who are willing to testify to the corrupt financial scheme.   Unfortunately, Senator Graham, along with dozens of U.S. Senators currently serving, may very well have been a recipient for money through the aforementioned laundry process.  So, good luck with the visas.

U.S. senators write foreign aid policy, rules and regulations thereby creating the financing mechanisms to transmit U.S. funds.  Those same senators then received a portion of the laundered funds back through their various “institutes” and business connections to the foreign government offices; in this example Ukraine. [ex. Burisma to Biden]

The U.S. State Dept. serves as a distribution network for the authorization of the money laundering by granting conflict waivers, approvals for financing (think Clinton Global Initiative), and permission slips for the payment of foreign money.   The officials within the State Dept. take a cut of the overall payments through a system of “indulgence fees”, junkets, gifts and expense payments to those with political oversight.

If anyone gets too close to revealing the process, writ large, they become a target of the entire apparatus.  President Trump was considered an existential threat to this entire process.  Hence our current political status with the ongoing coup. The letter:

It will be interesting to see how this plays out, because, well, in reality all of the U.S. Senators (both parties) on the Foreign Relations Committee [Members Here] are participating in the process for receiving taxpayer money and contributions from foreign governments.

A “Codel” is a congressional delegation that takes trips to work out the payments terms/conditions of any changes in graft financing.  This is why Senators spend $20 million on a campaign to earn a job paying $350k/year.  The “institutes” is where the real foreign money comes in; billions paid by governments like China, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Ukraine, etc. etc.  There are trillions at stake.

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell holds the power over these members (and the members of the Senate Intel Committee), because McConnell decides who sits on what committee.  As soon as a Senator starts taking the bribes lobbying funds, McConnell then has full control over that Senator.  This is how the system works.

The McCain Institute is one of the obvious examples of the financing network.  And that is the primary reason why Cindy McCain is such an outspoken critic of President Trump.  In essence President Trump is standing between her and her next diamond necklace; a dangerous place to be.

So when we think about a Senate Impeachment Trial; and we consider which senators will vote to impeach President Trump, it’s not just a matter of Democrats -vs- Republican.  We need to look at the game of leverage, and the stand-off between those bribed Senators who would prefer President Trump did not interfere in their process.

McConnell has been advising President Trump which Senators are most likely to need their sensibilities eased.   As an example President Trump met with Lisa Murkowski last week.  Senator Murkowski rakes in millions from the Oil and Gas industry; and she ain’t about to allow horrible Trump to lessen her bank account any more than Cindy McCain will give up her frequent shopper discounts at Tiffanys.

WASHINGTON DCSen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) is getting a high-profile perch as he joins the Senate during his latest clash with President Trump.

Romney was named on Thursday to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, giving him an opening to wade into several looming foreign policy battles between Congress and the White House.  (link)

Now do you see how McConnell works?

Oh yeah, about those recess appointments…. Once you see the strings on the Marionettes you can never go back to a time when you did not see them.

  1. I guess this is what I would call a quid pro quo. Funny this is the very thing they would accuse President Trump of.

    I think this explains all the eagerness to overthrow various governments in many countries and have the State Dept and CIA install their leaders of choice to insure the money flows freely into their pockets. The American taxpayer has been raped by these crooks for a very long time.

    • McConnell has his dirty little hands in China getting kickbacks via or for his Chinese FIL. Maybe its time for his exposure. Graham hasn’t done a damn thing all year, definitely nothing of what he promised. Since he was McCain’s stepson, he freaked over Syria afraid we would find out his involvement in the arms sales to terrorists McCain & stepson made.
      I now MUST question what Graham got out of Ukraine. Biden wasn’t alone. Pelosi, Romney, Kerry hillary, oboma all made monies off the crooked system oboma created.Graham is too anxious to know what we know (ie, do we know he’s involved?) rather than getting at the truth of the matter.
      I hope against all hope that peeps are wrong about Barr. As Trump already knew what Barr is learning, he will be hard pressed to walk away if he is the kind of man he says he is. One plus for the good guys (that would be the Deplorables)is Durham isn’t controlled and he hates Mueller for what he did in whitey Bulger case. It is Durham who went to judge to get the men released and fought mueller to do it. Why mueller was not immediately disbarred and thrown in the clinker for at least the same 25 yrs he put 4 innocent men escapes all logic. The fact he didn’t miss a beat and kept his job, tells you how corrupt this govt really is. We should stop feeding it and let it choke itself to death.

      I hope Trump has a “kill switch” with a full video in case he gets “taken out” by the deep state. He is on the verge of exposing corruption on a lot of powerful people, costing them millions and a career. In one of Tom Clancy’s book, terrorists use shoulder-fire missiles to take down civilian jets. I could imagine a scenario whereby members of the Deep State get some of these weapons and take down Marine one after it leaves the White House or Joint Base Andrews one night. With Trump making some people in the military mad I can see how they get their hands on some of these weapons. If Hillary and Obama got them for shipment into Libya, I am sure it is possible.

        For some reason, not supposed to say “I TOLD you so, but,..what the heck..

        Recently saw a headline about “The dangers of the Imperial Presidency”,…yes they are STILL pushing that old lie.

        CONGRESS is controlled by 4 people;
        Majority and Minority leaders of both Houses. If those 4, who are elected from ‘safe’districts, and so in fkor as long as they want, work together, they have,ENORMOUS power.

        THEY detirmine what legislation gets written and passed, and can insure there are enough must pass aspects that any POTUS would be loath to Veto.

        And, they can insure enough loopholes, to please their donor constituency.

        CONGRESS controls the budget, detirmining how much money each agency of the Administration gets.

        CONGRESS controls WHO the POTUS can appoint, not just at the cabinet level, but at the sub, and even sub-sub cabinet level. If McConnell doesn’t approve, confirmation goes NO WHERE, just ask Ratcliff. AND, despite the illusion of ‘squishy’Repubs, it only takes,ONE Senator to vote to recess, and NONE have, thereby blocking recess appointments.

        CONGRESS controls the Judiciary, again thru confirmations, and with the threat of impeachment.

        CONGRESS created the administrative State, and it works for CONGRESS.

        Someone recently commented that Joe Biden was “power hungry”. I and several others disputed that, but if you want to see what REAL power looks like, look no further than Mitch McConnell.

        NO ONE in D.C. or the Big Club wants to cross McConnell. He doesn’t boast, bluster or bullshirt like Biden, but he can DESTROY you, seemingly without lifting a finger.

        And, when McConnell, Pelosi, Schumer and McCarthy are all on the same page, they control virtually all aspects of our,Government.

        Think the IC is to big and powerful? The IC gets its funding, and marching orders from CONGRESS, thru the,SSCI and G of 8.

        Military? Funding from Congress, including big hairy weopons systems, which are full of kickbacks. And, which CONGRESS, in its oversight role, can choose to investigate, OR NOT INVESTIGATE, at the discretion of,….
        CONGRESS.

        And, as Sundance has layed out here, Foreign aid, including MILITARY aid, is them funneling trillions of $ to foreign countries corrupt governments, in exchange for a cut.

        It attacking PDJT, as a preemptive defence, they are exposing themselves, and as we have seen so often with the Trump effect, his enemies are placing the nooses around their own necks.

        Amazing to watch, really. And gratifying, as more and more people, in red pilling, are realising “OMG, HIS enemies are MY enemies! They want to utterly destroy HIM, as a prelude to utterly destroying ME!

        And once such a bond is made, between a leader and his followers, it can NOT be easily broken.

        WE are NOT 65 Million strong, we are,FAR more. One of the reasons they don’t want him to run in 2020, is not just that he will win, its that WE will realise just how,strong we really are, how MANY of us their are, and how few of THEM their are.

        CONGRESS is the center of the fetid sewer of corruption that is,D.C.

        IT was ALWAYS going to end up there, it HAS to end up there; the State Dept, the DOJ/FBI and I.C.? Just following orders.
        CONGRESS is where the orders emanate, where the coup originated.

        Get an EXCUSE that McConnell can use, to justify instructing REPUBLICON Senators to vote to Impeach; THAT was the assignment.

        DEMS don’t NEED an excuse.

        Agreed, but the founding fathers understood that would be the case. The purpose of having State legislatures elect Senators was to create a check on Federal power so that these inherently corrupt interests would hold each other in balance. That balance was lost during the Twentieth Century with the rise of Federalism, and the weakening of State power.

        We are currently experiencing the consequences of that imbalance with a super-corrupt federal government that also intrudes into and sometimes tries to eliminate personal liberties, like the First and Second Amendments.

And likely also declined to pass along information counter to Dem interests up the chain of the US State Department.

    Now it will. Rudy’s broken the story in this letter that’ll at least get visibility and discussion among GOPers. Hopefully, Trump supporters will pick the story up and start making noise about it.

    Despite Warnings Media Steps on a Rake With “Whistleblower” Story – Ukraine Government Initiated Contact – Giuliani Engagement Was Requested by State Dept. Officials…

    The government of Ukraine under both Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, and now President Volodymyr Zelensky, had been trying to deliver information about Obama officials and Democrat party officials (DNC on behalf of Hillary Clinton) requesting the government of Ukraine to interfere in the 2016 election.

    Both Poroshenko and Zelensky administrations had tried, unsuccessfully, to get information to current U.S. officials. U.S. State Department officials in Ukraine were refusing to give visa’s to Ukrainian emissaries because they did not want the damaging information sent to the President Trump administration.

    Failing to get help from the U.S. State Department, the Ukranians tried a workaround, and hired a respected U.S. lawyer to hand deliver the documentary evidence directly to the U.S. Department of Justice. The contracted American lawyer hand-delivered the information to the U.S. Department of Justice in New York.

    However, after delivering the information and not hearing back from the U.S. government… the Zelensky administration made a personal request to the U.S. State Department for assistance.

    The U.S. State Department then reached out to Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani; and asked him if he would meet with Zelensky’s top lawyer, Andrei Yermak.

      Sadly half of our nation are oblivious to the corruption by both parties and how they got rich selling the serfs out. The same half doesn’t get the big picture why there are efforts to oust Trump. He is a threat to their criminal enterprise.

    Wow. Follow the money has huge implications. Trillions of monetary value WORLDWIDE. Tap in to get your measly million. And US wealth was probably the biggest contributor.

    This begs the question: Are we the most corrupt nation on Earth now? Rather, were we under Obama?

      We were the most corrupt nation in the history of the world in terms of the amount of money being grafted.

      I’d say other institutions and governments are more corrupt overall, but lack our spending power and military might.

    So is there a good non-biased account of why Giuliani’s contacts were arrested? Parnas, if I spelled that correctly? On this, I’m lost, and now they’re accusing Nunes of meeting with them… I’m a bit fuzzy on these developments.

      Justin, after going through browser page after page of biased B.S. from the usual MSM suspects I found this October article from Daily Caller. They are usually pretty even handed. It may help you fill in some of the blanks up to that point.

      No time now to look for something more recent for you. As for Nunes, the Dems have painted a target on his back because of how effective he has been in thwarting them. They will do ANYTHING to take him down in similar fashion to their attempts on our POTUS. Another nothing-burger. Hope this helps. 🙂 You’re on your own now…

    I can’t get frustrated over this. So many people were held over by Trump or hired by Trump. I just wish him success despite his many self inflicted wounds. I would prefer he call out McConnell directly and take it to the voters, but what do I know. Maybe he’s waiting to do that in his second term, but while Trump is making tremendous progress on the economy and trade, but McConnell is just waiting for an opportunity to take the President out. I don’t know Trump deals with this.

      I don’t know how POTUS does it either, Cyberfoy! He’s a chess player and a very successful businessman. He probably looks at all this as one big, real life chess game with human chess pieces. The challenge envigorates a person like that. I just have to look on and say, “Wow.”

    You know, since PDJT got involved with the USN-v-Gallagher mess, it makes me wonder if he wouldn’t enjoy a little tilt with State, by using his executive authority to order the embassy to issue visa’s for the Ukies. Fire/demote/transfer-out/rubber-room/whatever anyone that refuses, then promote their subordinate, and loop through it again until someone issues the visas. I’m sure there’s someone down among the junior staff that would do it. And the embassy is undoubtedly overstaffed and fat anyway.

    But where’s Pompeo? This is his patch. This has the same flavor as Barr who seemingly can’t get the DOJ to behave. I’m sure there are others, too.

  23. “Unfortunately, Senator Graham, along with dozens of U.S. Senators currently serving, may very well have been a recipient for money through the aforementioned laundry process. So, good luck with the visas.”

    All this nonsense about visas. Can’t they be slipped across the Rio Grande and deposed in a Sanctuary City?

    On a serious note, this is why the Mitch Star Chamber not a friendly forum for President Trump. Nor does the looming Giuliani Ukraine exposé make it any friendlier. If the House shakes off all the patent absurdity, the absence of facts, crimes, the embattled Dem districts, etc. and impeaches POTUS, we will know this is an impervious conveyor belt hardwired to go in only one direction.

    Can a president bring foreign persons to the US without them having a visa? I think yes, although I haven’t researched it. Can such a foreign person then testify either before Congress or in a court of law? Are they legally protected under a presidential diplomatic cloak? Again I think yes, although I haven’t researched it. The president conducts foreign policy, so why not?

      How did Veselnitsya get in? She was blocked and later unblocked. IIR, AG Lynch granted a temp visa?

      McConnell and Graham took $$$ from dual citizen Blavatnik. Although they try to link Blavatnik to the President, his financial connections to Larry Summers and Tom Steyer go back to the Harvard Institute for International Development scandal in Russia.

    Sundance pointing to “bagman” William Taylor as one of those “leaders if choice” is spot on.
    Taylor has had his hand in the finance and deals of the never ending wars since the looting of Russia after the breakup of the Soviet Union. Read about his career at his wiki.
    This article talks of the ****show that was the reconstruction of Afghanistan.

    Understand that after Afghanistan, Taylor went on to head the reconstruction of Iraq.

    Political reality would seem to dictate that we should leave McConnell alone, unless he plays a bad hand, until after the Senate trial on impeachment either goes away or is completed. Even though he appears to be aligned with Chinese interests on trade policy. If Trump wins re-election, it will no longer matter what Mitch does in that arena. What a complete mess The People’s Government has become.

    I hope Trump has a “kill switch” with a full video in case he gets “taken out” by the deep state. He is on the verge of exposing corruption on a lot of powerful people, costing them millions and a career. In one of Tom Clancy’s book, terrorists use shoulder-fire missiles to take down civilian jets. I could imagine a scenario whereby members of the Deep State get some of these weapons and take down Marine one after it leaves the White House or Joint Base Andrews one night. With Trump making some people in the military mad I can see how they get their hands on some of these weapons. If Hillary and Obama got them for shipment into Libya, I am sure it is possible.
