House Scheme Unfolds – Adam Schiff Transmits “New Evidence” to Nadler…

Yesterday’s ridiculous, albeit proactive, New York Times narrative about Russians hacking Burisma now makes sense.  Today the Lawfare team (Mary McCord et al) within Adam Schiff’s impeachment crew send additional files of evidence (pdf below) to be included in the impeachment articles constructed by HJC Chairman Jerry Nadler.

It is all coordinated. The “new evidence” relates to information turned over by Lev Parnas, an SDNY indicted former associate of Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani.  The Lawfare purpose is to bolster their premise that President Trump was trying to force Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Joe Biden’s corrupt activity around the Ukrainian company Burisma.

The Lawfare crew behind Schiff waited until the last minute to push the new “evidence” because they didn’t want republicans to deconstruct it during the impeachment evidence gathering phase. Aditionally, the Lawfare crew anticipate a Trump impeachment defense surrounding actual evidence of the Biden corruption, which makes the Trump request to Zelensky valid.

So the proactive democrat strategy was/is to use the New York Times presentation of Russia hacking Burisma to negate the provenance of the evidence against the Bidens.  In essence, to cast doubt upon any documents that would show Joe and Hunter Biden participating in an actual influence and money-laundering scheme.

Here’s the letter and documentary evidence from Adam Schiff (House Link Here):

.

The SDNY created legal leverage upon Lev Parnas using the familiar strategy of charging “FARA violations”, as noted in the background of the House explanation.

The purpose was/is to extract anything from Parnas that could be twisted or construed to show evidence that Rudy Giuliani was working on behalf of President Trump to pressure Ukraine into investigating Burisma, Joe Biden and Hunter Biden.

To counter any evidence that would highlight the truth that Hunter and Joe Biden were indeed participating in a pay-to-play influence and money laundering scheme for personal financial benefit, the same democrat operatives created a 2020 Russian ‘hacking claim’ using former Crowdstrike employee Blake Darché and his colleague Oren Falkowitz.

NYT – […] The hackers fooled some of them into handing over their login credentials, and managed to get inside one of Burisma’s servers, Area 1 said.

“The attacks were successful,” said Oren Falkowitz, a co-founder of Area 1, who previously served at the National Security Agency. Mr. Falkowitz’s firm maintains a network of sensors on web servers around the globe — many known to be used by state-sponsored hackers — which gives the firm a front-row seat to phishing attacks, and allows them to block attacks on their customers. (link)

Blake Darche’ and Oren Falkowitz formed a new cyber-security company named “Area-1 Security”.  It is analysis from this group that the New York Times uses to push the Russia hacking of Burisma narrative.  It’s all the same players, just switching around the subject.

  • The 2016 Lawfare group is now 2020’s Just Security;
  • the 2016 CrowdStrike group is now 2020’s Area-1 Security;
  • and the 2016 Russia DNC hack is now the 2020 Russia Burisma hack… 

It’s the same players, the same story, the same approach.

Go deep on Oleg Falkowitz and Oren Falkowitz HERE

In February 2008, Oleg Falkowitz was hired as the Iran Mission Manager and Special Assistant For Policy and Cybersecurity at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

In February 2009, Oleg Falkowitz left his position at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

In August 2010, Oleg Falkowitz was hired as Director of Technology and Data Science Program (J2 — Intelligence) at the United States Cyber Command.

In July 2012, Oleg Falkowitz left his position at both the United States Cyber Command and the National Security Agency.

The same month, Oren Falkowitz co-founded the organisation sqrrl and became the Chief Executive Officer.

In January 2013, Falkowitz left his position at sqrrl.

In November 2013, Oren Falkowitz, Blake Darché and Phil Syme founded the organisation Area 1 Security.

Blake Darché published the article “Once a Target, Always a Target” in Medium, which was about “Cozy Bear”.

Between July 17–19, 2017, Oren Falkowitz, John Brennan, Andrea Mitchell and David Sanger attended the Fortune Brainstorm Tech Conference in Aspen, CO.

      My theory is that he wanted to get impeached, and knew that losing the House allows him to disclose EVERYTHING as a defense, in a trial, under oath, subject to perjury, knowing that the press will be covering it live, to the whole world.

      That’s why Rudy is bullet-proof on any allegations of wrong-doing, because he was acting as a lawyer, representing a client (not the Office of the President, or as a government employee of the President, but the man himself, the defendant Donald J Trump, not PDJT), who is allowed to lawfully search for any exculpatory information, and can get their own subpoenas.

      But he really wanted to wait and drag it out closer to the election. But this way will work, too.

        The problem with the Senate impeachment trial is that the average Democrat is brain dead and cannot be persuaded or convinced of the truth even if it walks up and bites them in the face. They are impervious to shame and facts. And the Lawfare scum is even worse. They know they are lying and don’t care. They know that the cost of this thing blowing up in their faces is the loss of the moral high ground and 40 years in the wilderness like the Republicans after Watergate.

      In a word – no. There will be no witnesses, no cross examination. A Senate trial is basically dueling opening statements, followed by a period of Q and A.

      But that’s some pretty weak sauce: “The Russians hacked Burisma and planted evidence.” Yeah, right. Going to be hard to square that assertion against the corroborating evidence (i.e. cash payments to Biden, timeline, etc) but it gives the Democrats something to hang their hopes on.

      “I got hacked!” is the lamest and least believable excuse going.

        Through manipulation, intimidation, propoganda, indoctrination and MANY years of slow, steady stealth mode Democrats and complicit, compromised and corrupted Republicons, they managed to fool enough people to make it almost 50/50.
        And in 3 years, PDJT and the Democrats have, by showing a clear contrast (instead of Uniparty mediocrity) have succeded in getting us back to where Dems are a 20-30% minority.

        I say this after seeing a poll that 2/3 of respondents thought House Impeachment was unfair.

        So, 1/3 thinks it IS fair. The hardcore, conmunists of the Democrat party.

        Not sure who deserves MORE credit for this fundamental shift in opinion, Nancy or PDJT.

        Perhaps, like they sometimes do with Nobel, they should share the credit, equally?

        Way to go, Nancy! Give the House to Dems for another two years, the Dem party would cease to exist!

      All they have to do is convince enough Republican Senators who are looking for an excuse to vote against POTUS Trump. I would surmise that this will mean there will be additional witnesses called. I’m not worried that POTUS has done anything wrong but am worried about the truth and law getting twisted to give the UniParty republican senators the cover they are looking for

      By not dismissing the shampeachment charges because the process and charges are unconstitutional McConnell has legitimized, by precedence, the dem House unconstitutional procedures and allowed an impeachment trial on charges that are not crimes. When POTUS wins re-election they will come after him again with the same process and procedures. The dems have nothing to lose. I have a lot of cold anger right now towards McConnell & Co. Add that to the cold anger towards Lawfarse , the dems and the MSM II feel I may spontaneously cryogenize.

        This is what I’ve been upset and stating for weeks. By allowing these woefully deficient articles to be given the benefit of a full trial, they set the precedent inferring the procedures the House used were lawful. Before they are even finished with this one in the Senate, they will have more to try in the House….and it will be a never ending “Impeachment inquiry” star chamber in the basement. They aren’t going to stop..

        …Unless they get the message by dismissal that an Impeachment must be done according to lawful precedent and due process.

        If they do not dismiss it, then the Senate rules must be changed to to prevent this from happening again.

    1. Biden on tape bragging he blackmailed Ukraine to stop their Burisma investigations,
    2. Former Ukraine prosecutor interview by OAN’s Chanel Rio, where he says Yovanovitch asked him to stop specific ongoing investigations,
    3. Witnesses who claimed Yovanovitch asked them to spy on reporters,
    4. Witnesses who claimed Yovanovitch denied visa’s to Ukraine officials who wanted to warn Trump certain Ukraine persons were trying to undermine his campaign.

    Finally, Ukraine itself can claim the alleged Russian hacking via phishing is untrue, and that untruth verified by their own experts, who found no data intrusions at all. Thus calling Darche and Falkowitz what they are, Damn Liars.

            The VP has no role in an impeachment trial of a president.

            In such a trial, it’s arithmetically impossible for there to be a tie with 100 senators voting and 67 votes required to convict.

            The only possible tie would be 50 to convict and 50 to acquit, which would by definition result in an acquittal, so the need to break that tie would be moot and also impossible anyway since a tie breaking vote could not be cast by any individual other than a senator.

              Sorry, somehow hit the Post button before adding my last paragraph.

              Even if less than 100 senators were present to vote – if Senate rules permit that – one vote cannot mathematically achieve 2/3, if without the vote, it would be a tie.

              UNLESS only 6 Senators are present:
              Proof:
              50% of 6 = 3 thus a tie would be 3 Yea, 3 Nay
              .667% of 6 = 4 which if 4 Yea, 2 Nay means conviction
              Thus only 1 vote changes from a tie to a 2/3 majority.

              This is the only way a VP could both break a tie AND achieve the 2/3rds necessary to convict. No way the Senate will run an impeachment trial vote or any other full chamber vote with only 6 Senators present.

    Transparently manipulative BS, IOW same old…stuff. If in fact it’s an excuse for the inexcusably disloyal RINOs to bag in with the leftist horde (aka Democrats) and they get their “witnesses”, it won’t be the same in the Senate “trial” scenario.

    The “witnesses” by all accounts have nothing to add to the lack of information given by the earlier “witnesses” in the House charade. Furthermore, unlike the House nonsense “inquiry” in the Senate the President’s legal team will be doing the cross-examination. Very likely the “witnesses” will be unable to withstand the withering blast unleashed on them. They’ll be forced to reveal their hidden agendas, the illegal actions perpetrated by their Democrat “handlers” and the schemes underlying their participation.

    Furthermore the Trump team will call their own witnesses with all the ugly inconvenient (Democrat) secrets they’ll have to involuntarily reveal. Call the Senate trial a “sh!tshow”, it’s almost certainly not even an exaggeration. For such reasons a very good chance the Senate will forego a witness phase re: too much potential embarrassment for Unipartisans therein.

    President Trump tweeted the other day about the Senate dismissing the House impeachment charges forthwith vs. earlier on the President saying he wanted a full trial. Leads me to think it’s a “briar patch” moment with rumors flying around that some Senate Republicans are softening and favor witnesses.

    Pres Trump probably will be saying, “please, please whatever you do don’t throw me in the briar patch”. Let ’em go ahead and do it anyway, it’s making a big mistake, as usual they underestimate President Trump at their own peril.

            Something went wrong between Christie and Trump at that time. I sure don’t know exactly what happened, but I don’t believe Trump would have booted Christie for no reason. Doesn’t make sense to me that it was “for Jared”, though it’s conceivable that Christie managed to get into conflicts with various others, maybe with Jared among them.

            From what we can observe from the public perspective, Christie has indeed made himself on the outs with everyone who counts. I surmise his personality that comes to the fore, ultimately his doing to undo his opportunities for success.

          Exactly, a vote to dismiss is the best option. Going for more witnesses, ie doing the job the House was supposed to do, would only open up a can of worms. The democrats, the crooked media and their lawfare pals are hoping to drag this out.

              The only correct and right position a Senator can take before the public is this:

              “I will not be part of an action that the Constitution forbids. Congress shall not pass a Bill of Attainder. The Senate will reject this House product and explain to the Democrats that it is unacceptable. They have to do it over and do it by the Constitution.”

    The Constitution does not define any specific rules for the Articles of Impeachment, nor what they should consist of. So can the House just equip its Managers with additional ‘evidence’ for the Senate trial after sending over the Articles?

    I would suggest that it is up to the Senate to decide what it will or will not accept as evidence, and when. In a judicial trial, at least in the Perry Mason TV versions, unexpected evidence can show up at the last moment, deciding the case. However, the Senate, i.e. Leader McConnell, can decide that he will not accept any evidence that is not already specified and included with the Articles. I hope that will be his policy. /LEJ

    So now the House Dems have a whole bunch of “new” evidence that’s complete lies, and twisted nonsense. Only the House patriots are not going to be allowed to destroy it because Turtle Mitch Decepticon won’t allow them to speak in the Senate. No GOP Senators will actively help the Trump team. Mitch and many other GOP establishment Senators would love to see Trump smeared and bloodied to damage him for re-election — as long as they can blame it on the Dems and not take the blame directly. 4-5 of the GOP Senators lead by Romney, Murkowski, and Collins will consistently vote with the Dems to get the rules they want and stop the GOP from dismissing the impeachment. Trump’s legal team is over matched. This is not a legal trial. It’s a political trial for public opinion and they are not the guys to put on TV. Sekulow will argue arcane points of law which will not register with the TV audience. This is not going to be good for Trump. In the end 4-6 Republican traitors will vote for conviction enabling the Democrats to leave with a campaign platform that the majority of the Senate voted that Trump is a criminal who should not be in office — even though they fell way short of the 67 votes required for removal. This is not about removing Trump and never was. It’s about wrecking his chances for re-election. And the feckless, weak GOP is not going to protect him.
