OK so…“we will stop this”?
I’ve been pondering this for a while. Off the top of my head, we now have three different instances of outreach where various and sundry Russians with connections to the CIA, FBI or Fusion GPS initiated contact with low level staffers, family or hangers on to the Trump campaign. We have yet to hear of a single instance of Trumpland initiating contact with Russians for anything other than….maybe…Vodka and Caviar?
- Natalia Veselnitskaya, a paid operative of Fusion GPS met with Donald Trump Jr to offer up Dirt on Hillary
- Stephan Halper, a CIA and FBI informant met with Carter Page and George Popdopolis to offer up dirt on Hillary Clinton
- Henry Greenberg AKA Henry Oknyansky a “Crazy Russian Expat” and CIA/FBI informant approached Roger Stone and Michael Caputo to offer up dirt on Hillary Clinton.
In each case, it was the shady Russian FBI informants who made first contact and allegedly offered up the dirt unsolicited.
In the cases of Greenberg and Veselnitskaya, they had been previously kicked out of the country and were later brought back in with the help and blessing of the FBI. Veselnitskya was in the country on “immigration parole….in what the Justice Department said was “extraordinary permission.”
I think it is safe to say at this point that We don’t have and never did have active collusion of Trump campaign officials with the Kremlin no matter how badly CNN wished it were so.
There has been NO credible evidence of Trump officials reaching out to the Kremlin that I have seen.
It has become apparent to me that Strzok and his happy band of badged jesters’ way of ensuring “We will stop this” was to send informants to the Trump campaign and spin up an information cyclone that would gin up Buzz in Trumpland. Buzz the FBI could later use to justify an investigation and ultimately initiate the Muller investigation.
I believe this whole thing has been manufactured. The only contacts with Russians was initiated by Russians with ties to the CIA and FBI.
It was a sting operation from start to finish and the whole object was to entrap the incoming Trump Administration.
I’ve never been a fan of Tump. I still have a bad taste in my mouth for the filthy trash he spread about Ted Cruz and his father, “Lying Ted” and “Little Marco” & etc. He’s surprised me so far with what he’s done but I still find him unnecessarily trollish, abrasive thin skinned and juvenile.
That said, I can loathe Trump and still see the injustice of this and recognise the danger that this kind of operation poses to a Representative Republic.
One more thing to chew on: We have pieces of a story floating about that involve the FBI, CIA, NSA and the State Department corroborating in a counter espionage investigation.
The known facts appear to be so closely orchestrated to generate the afore mentioned information cyclone swirling up to the highest levels of each organization that there must have been cabinet level coordination at least.
It could have even gone all the way to Obama himself….”Gasp”
I just pray we don’t get so caught up watching the shiny object of Strzok/Comey and the IG report that we miss the larger fish who orchestrated the whole get Trump opera!
