Why The Investigation of Trump-Putin Money Is Going Nowhere

20 Jan

Three words…Federal Bureau of Investigation AKA the FBI.

Led by Trump Traitor James Comey. The guy who is under investigation himself for releasing false information on Clinton just before the election.

The fix is in.

FBI's warning of white supremacists infiltrating law enforcement nearly forgotten news 1x1.trans

The FBI is leading an investigation into Donald Trump’s connections with Russia

Trump is about to take over a government that has suspicions about whether he has been compromised by Russia

The FBI is leading a multi-agency investigation into possible links between Russian officials and President-elect Donald Trump.

The bureau will be joined by the CIA, National Security Agency, and the Treasury Department’s financial crimes unit, according to The New York Times on Thursday. They will reportedly be looking into intercepted communications and financial transactions involving Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chairman; Carter Page, a former Trump foreign policy adviser; and Roger Stone, a Republican political operative and Trump confidante. One official told the Times that intelligence reports based on some of the wiretapped communications were provided to the White House.

The report did not say whether Trump himself or his presidential campaign have been directly implicated in these investigations or whether they involve the alleged Russian hacking of the Democratic National Committee. All that is known for sure is that they at least partially encompass Trump’s past business dealings with Russia, as well as Manafort’s previous work in both Russia and Ukraine (when the latter state was controlled by a Putin puppet). Sources also told the Times that some of Manafort’s contacts were under surveillance by the National Security Agency because of possible links to Russia’s Federal Security Service, the successor to the infamous KGB.

The legal standards for opening one of these investigations are not very high, and as a result prosecutions are uncommon. Because Trump will soon oversee the agencies conducting these efforts, he will have the power to hinder or even outright squelch them.

“We have absolutely no knowledge of any investigation or even a basis for such an investigation,” said Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks. Manafort was even more defiant, emailing the Times on Thursday evening that claims he had interacted with the Russian government were a “Democrat Party dirty trick and completely false.”

There are numerous connections between Trump and Russia that are beyond dispute. It is a fact that Manafort worked for pro-Putin politicians in Ukraine (his denials notwithstanding), that Trump advisers like Rex Tillerson and retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn are also connected to Putin, that Trump took little interest in the Republican Party platform except to make sure that it wasn’t too harsh on Russia, that he openly encouraged Russia to hack Clinton’s emails, and that he had to turn to Russian financial interests tied to the Putin regime to fund his business ventures when major banks stopped lending him money.

That said, if the FBI has been aware of these investigations since before October, it will raise serious questions about why FBI Director James Comey didn’t disclose them to the public when he did choose to disclose a warrant into Hillary Clinton’s emails, which were ultimately about “nothing at all.”

    I disagree.

    Trump has trashed the entire intelligence community and I bet one person out of the thousands of employees who has access to the evidence is pissed enough to send it to the media or post it online and then Comey can’t cover it up.

    Someone’s going to snitch on Trump.

    Almost a year and still nothing. A lot of noise, hype and endless speculation. What’s more, I believe the Democrats know they’ll never find anything, so they use this as an excuse to keep investigating. If you can’t remove someone from office because you have no substantial evidence, why not do the next best thing by keeping a cloud of suspicion over them and hope that voters confuse with actual proof of a crime. After all if a person is under investigation then they must have done something. Fortunately, I can see through this charade being used by the Democrats.

      Albert – that’s nice … Except for two things.

      First – The list of folks who want the Chumph’s head on a pike includes almost the entire US Intelligence apparatus. Places than have never been known as bastions of the the left. Include in that what’s left of State Department, and a good part of Military Intelligence. So while the folks preventing his impeachment are all Republicans… The folks who want him impeached and convicted include both sides of the political spectrum.

      They didn’t get “there” because of a lack of evidence.

      With a Republican majority in Congress defending the Chumph – the evidence against him has to be bulletproof. Republican continued willingness to vote for their party beliefs and against the interests of their country (as the failed attempts at killing the ACA and replacing it with various draconian substitutes has shown) raises the bar for making a case against the Chumph near impossibly high. So whatever Mueller finds is really going to be “tried” in the court of Public Opinion. Which likely means violence in the streets.

      Now – I professionally sometimes do what is called “Due Diligence” on corporations, individuals, and even people in leadership positions in other countries. Typically that is in support of mergers and acquisitions by major corporations. However sometimes it is done on behalf of government. While my services haven’t been engaged in looking at the Chumph business empire, even a quick perusal (not a deep dive) driven by my own curiosity shows a number of connections to Organized Crime, the Russian Mob(s), and Money Laundering.

      If there is any Justice left in America, they are going to impeach, convict and hang this POS, several members of his family, and a number of his associates before this is over. If Republicans resist that – then things are going “South” real fast.
