Trump Campaign Set Up Secret Back Channel to Putin

And the Chumph campaign spoke to Russian agents 18 more times than previously admitted during the election.

I can’t imagine anything more disastrous to our national security than a bumbling idiot neophyte like the Chumph speaking privately to Putin, one of the most ruthless and accomplished bastards in the world. It’s like sending a 3 year old to negotiate with Hitler. All Putin had to do is to stroke the Chumph’s pathetic ego, and the Chumph would spill the beans on the location of our troops, missiles and defenses.

The Chumph team ,with these new revelations was in contact via phone, colluding with the Russians at least weekly.

Trump Campaign Had At Least 18 Undisclosed Contacts With Russians, Sources Say

Six of the previously undisclosed contacts were phone calls between advisers of Russian diplomat Sergey Kislyak and Trump.

Michael Flynn and other advisers to Donald Trump’s campaign were in contact with Russian officials and others with Kremlin ties in at least 18 calls and emails during the last seven months of the 2016 presidential race, current and former U.S. officials familiar with the exchanges told Reuters.

The previously undisclosed interactions form part of the record now being reviewed by FBI and congressional investigators probing Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election and contacts between Trump’s campaign and Russia.

Six of the previously undisclosed contacts described to Reuters were phone calls between advisers of Russian diplomat Sergey Kislyak and Trump, including Flynn, Trump’s first national security adviser, three current and former officials said.

Conversations between Flynn and Kislyak accelerated after the Nov. 8 vote as the two discussed establishing a back channel for communication between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin that could bypass the U.S. national security bureaucracy, which both sides considered hostile to improved relations, four current U.S. officials said.Image result for trump campaign russians

In January, the Trump White House initially denied any contacts with Russian officials during the 2016 campaign. The White House and advisers to the campaign have since confirmed four meetings between Kislyak and Trump advisers during that time.

The people who described the contacts to Reuters said they had seen no evidence of wrongdoing or collusion between the campaign and Russia in the communications reviewed so far. But the disclosure could increase the pressure on Trump and his aides to provide the FBI and Congress with a full account of interactions with Russian officials and others with links to the Kremlin during and immediately after the 2016 election.

The White House did not respond to requests for comment. Flynn’s lawyer declined to comment. In Moscow, a Russian foreign ministry official declined to comment on the contacts and referred Reuters to the Trump administration.

Separately, a spokesman for the Russian embassy in Washington said: “We do not comment on our daily contacts with the local interlocutors.”

The 18 calls and electronic messages took place between April and November 2016 as hackers engaged in what U.S. intelligence concluded in January was part of a Kremlin campaign to discredit the vote and influence the outcome of the election in favor of Trump over his Democratic challenger, former secretary of state Hillary Clinton.

Those discussions focused on mending U.S.-Russian economic relations strained by sanctions imposed on Moscow, cooperating in fighting Islamic State in Syria and containing a more assertive China, the sources said.

Members of the Senate and House intelligence committees have gone to the CIA and the National Security Agency to review transcripts and other documents related to contacts between Trump campaign advisers and associates and Russian officials and others with links to Putin, people with knowledge of those investigations told Reuters.

The U.S. Justice Department said on Wednesday it had appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate alleged Russian meddling in the U.S. presidential campaign and possible collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russia. Mueller will now take charge of the FBI investigation that began last July. Trump and his aides have repeatedly denied any collusion with Russia.

‘IT’S RARE’

In addition to the six phone calls involving Kislyak, the communications described to Reuters involved another 12 calls, emails or text messages between Russian officials or people considered to be close to Putin and Trump campaign advisers.

One of those contacts was by Viktor Medvedchuk, a Ukrainian oligarch and politician, according to one person with detailed knowledge of the exchange and two others familiar with the issue.

It was not clear with whom Medvedchuk was in contact within the Trump campaign but the themes included U.S.-Russia cooperation, the sources said. Putin is godfather to Medvedchuk’s daughter.

Medvedchuk denied having any contact with anyone in the Trump campaign.Image result for trump campaign russians

“I am not acquainted with any of Donald Trump’s close associates, therefore no such conversation could have taken place,” he said in an email to Reuters.

In the conversations during the campaign, Russian officials emphasized a pragmatic, business-style approach and stressed to Trump associates that they could make deals by focusing on common economic and other interests and leaving contentious issues aside, the sources said.

Veterans of previous election campaigns said some contact with foreign officials during a campaign was not unusual, but the number of interactions between Trump aides and Russian officials and others with links to Putin was exceptional.

“It’s rare to have that many phone calls to foreign officials, especially to a country we consider an adversary or a hostile power,” Richard Armitage, a Republican and former deputy secretary of state, told Reuters.

Putin Tries to Save His Boi Toy

How amusing! Like Putin is going to tell the truth about his wholly owned bitch.

Putin offers to provide Congress with details of Trump disclosures to Russian envoys

Russian President Vladimir Putin said Wednesday he would be willing to provide the U.S. Congress a record of President Trump’s meeting with top Russian envoys, bringing scoffs on Capitol Hill that the Kremlin could help shed light on the disclosures of reportedly highly classified intelligence.

The provocative offer for the Kremlin to share evidence with U.S. oversight committees about the Oval Office meeting came with the caveat that the request for the transcript would have to come from the Trump administration.

Presenting a transcript is the Kremlin’s latest gambit in denying that Trump shared classified secrets last week with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Russia’s ambassador to the United States during an Oval Office meeting.

But the tactic may have more to about attempts to sow further chaos in Washington than assuage suspicions about the talks.

Colbert Cuts Loose on the Chumph – “Sir, the only the only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s c*^k holster.”

Dayam! Don’t hold back!

Stephen Colbert let loose on Putin’ Bitch last night towards the end of his opening monologue. Check out the last minute for the full “Slamnation”.

‘Trump’s mouth is only good as Vladimir Putin’s c*ck holster’: Colbert brutalizes Trump in 2-minute blitz

Stephen Colbert on Monday defended fellow CBS host John Dickerson against Donald Trump after the president told the renowned journalist he refers to the (award-winning) news program “Face the Nation” as “Deface the Nation.”

“Donald Trump, John Dickerson is a fair-minded journalist and one of the most competent people who will ever walk into your office,” Colbert began during his opening monologue on “The Late Show.”

Colbert noted Dickerson has too much “dignity to trade insults with the president of the United States to his face,” adding “But I, sir, am no John Dickerson.”

“Here we go,” Colbert began, before ripping into Trump.

“Mr. Trump, your presidency? I love your presidency, I call it ‘Disgrace the Nation.’” Colbert said. “You’re not the POTUS, you’re the BLOTUS. You’re the glutton with a button. You’re a regular ‘Gorge’ Washington. You’re the presi-dunce. But you’re turning into a real prictator.”

Colbert said Trump “attracts more skinheads than free Rogaine,” has “more people marching against [him] than cancer,” and talks “like a sign-language gorilla who got hit in the head.”

Going all-in against the president, Colbert added: “Sir, the only the only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s cock holster.”

More British Intelligence Documents Show Payments From Chumph Campaign to Russian Hackers

Need to ask the question…Why is the FBI suppressing this?

I mean, the validity of this is freaking easy to nail down.

UK spy documents: Trump Organization paid Russian hackers who took orders from Putin

Last December, the U.K. government was reportedly given extensive records of Trump campaign officials’ interactions with the Kremlin.

The Guardian reported former MI6 agent Christopher Steele’s infamous dossier about possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia was first given to the UK intelligence services. These documents reportedly contain records of payments from the Trump campaign to banks of Russian cyber trolls tasked with spreading disinformation ahead of the 2016 election.

Court filings confirmed earlier this month that Steele passed along the information because he felt it was “of considerable importance in relation to alleged Russian interference in the US presidential election.”

Steele outlined how four Trump campaign representatives traveled to Prague in the Czech Republic in August or September to have “secret discussions with Kremlin representatives and associated operators/hackers.” The group discussed how they would pay hackers for breaking into the Democratic Party’s computers and developing a “contingency plans for covering up operations.”

The memo reported that hackers were paid by the Trump Organization, however, the hackers were under the direction of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen is said to have attended the meeting in Prague, though he has described the memo as “totally fake, totally inaccurate.” He also claimed he’d never been to Prague.

Steele produced 16 memos using Russian sources to describe the web of collusion between Trump aides and Russian intelligence or other officials. A copy of the memos was given to the news outlet Fusion but instructed them not to disclose the material to anyone without approval. They agreed and Steele agreed to provide a copy to Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) after McCain learned the memos existed from the UK ambassador to Moscow.

The Guardian reports that the court documents revealed Steele continued to get “unsolicited intelligence” on the links between Trump and Russia. As a result, Steele drew up another memo from Dec. 13. He turned that memo to a senior British national security official and gave encrypted versions to Fusion to give to McCain.

Court statements argue Steele was under an obligation to give the information to the UK and US “at a high level by persons with responsibility for national security.” However, Steele said he never gave a copy to any news organizations, merely off-the-record briefings about the dossier to some journalists in the fall of 2016. They argue they had no involvement in BuzzFeed’s decision to publish the document.

The dossier wasn’t delivered to former President Barack Obama and then-President-elect Donald Trump until January.

Sally Yates and the Throwdown on Chumph-Putin Collusion

Sally Yates was the acting US Attorney General after Loretta Lynch submitted her resignation as part of the administration turnover.

Jake Clapper is the former CIA Director.

Both were in positions with high enough security clearances to see all the actionable intelligence relative to collusion between the Chumph campaign and the Russians.

While both are prohibited from disclosing details – they are not prohibited from discussing their conclusions based on the evidence.

Yates in particular has a few bones to pick with the Chumph, based on her firing, and the continued coverup by Republicans in Congress.

This well could be the prelude to letting the whole cat out of the box in public on national TV.

Time to take Putin’s Bitch down for the traitor he is.

Report – FBI Now Has ‘concrete evidence’ of collusion between Trump camp and Russian govt

Slowly getting there…

Investigators now have ‘concrete evidence’ of collusion between Trump camp and Russian govt: source

A source close to the investigation into President Donald Trump’s campaign and its ties to Russia says that there is now “specific concrete and corroborative evidence” that individuals within Trump’s immediate orbit coordinated with Russian intelligence operatives during the election.

The Guardian said on Thursday that the U.K.’s Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) has been watching the Trump camp since late 2015, having noticed suspicious “interactions” between Trump associates and well-known Russian agents.

GCHQ passed the information it had uncovered along to U.S. intelligence agencies as part of the routine exchange of information and for the next six months until summer of 2016, U.S intelligence agencies were receiving information about the contacts from European agencies in Germany, Estonia and Poland.

More information came in to U.S. hands from members of the “Five Eyes” alliance that includes the U.S., the U.K., Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

“It is understood that GCHQ was at no point carrying out a targeted operation against Trump or his team or proactively seeking information,” the Guardian said. “The alleged conversations were picked up by chance as part of routine surveillance of Russian intelligence assets. Over several months, different agencies targeting the same people began to see a pattern of connections that were flagged to intelligence officials in the US.”

However, after carefully compiling the assembled intelligence, one source close to the investigation said, “They now have specific concrete and corroborative evidence of collusion. This is between people in the Trump campaign and agents of [Russian] influence relating to the use of hacked material.”

Sources close to the GCHQ told the Guardian that it looks like U.S. intelligence agencies “were asleep” with regards to Russia and its alliance with the Trump team.

“They [the European agencies] were saying: ‘There are contacts going on between people close to Mr Trump and people we believe are Russian intelligence agents. You should be wary of this,’” the source said. “The message was: ‘Watch out. There’s something not right here.’”

U.S. spy agencies, however, are forbidden from spying on citizens without a warrant — warrants that are very difficult to obtain.

“They are trained not to do this,” the source said, which slowed down the time it took for U.S. agencies to become aware of the threat and respond, which it did in the late summer of 2016.

The MSM Gets Punked Again on Fake Syria Bombing

The MSM got punked…Again.

The Putin-Chumph fake missile attack in Syria which succeeded in blowing up a couple of goats and a couple of antique junkyard Mig 15s, and left the target airport in such bad shape they were launching planes a few hours later to bomb the hell out of hospitals – was a publicity stunt to try and bail out a rapidly failing presidency…The Chumph’s.

Yet no one seemed to attack the absurdity of the attack, and things only became unglued when ABC News reported two hours after the attack that the Russians and Syrians had, under Putin’s orchestration – moved their aircraft, personnel, chemical weapons, and critical equipment to another airport long before the Chumph ordered the launch of the missiles.

Sexual Molestation and Racial Discrimination Central, Fox News was overjoyed to have something else to talk about except serial rape by their leading talking head and others on their staff. Literally gushing about Putin’s Bitch bombing the hell out of some “A-rabs” they lead their easily dupeable slack jawed, ignorant followers in the usual orgasmic outpouring of plastic patriotism, that their “Trump had bombed some brown people. Faux News even trotted out a couple of pics of some destroyed antique Mig 15, last used in the Korean War, an which hadn’t been flown above sea level in 30 years as evidence of the “destruction”.

Took three days for much of the MSM to get their collective dicks off the table and realize they had been royally hoodwinked again.

Media masochists fall for Trump: One ineffectual missile attack, and cable news goes into White House fluff mode

One pointless display of military machismo, and the TV talking heads Trump loves to mock are swept off their feet

For nearly two years now, we’ve followed the incomprehensibly remedial political life of Donald Trump. For nearly two years, we’ve observed in shocked horror at episode after episode in which Trump is engulfed in controversy of his own making, only to be given chance after chance after chance to redeem himself, unlike nearly every other worldwide public figure, political or otherwise.

No matter how often President Trump whines and hurls tantrums on Twitter about the “dishonest media” and all the “fake news” it publishes, the television press has gifted him with unprecedented latitude — his very own set of political rules, devised by Trump and implemented by the cable news media. Actually, I hesitate to call them “rules” because the word suggests there are limits to and punishments for Trump’s behavior. Anyone following his greatest hits knows there aren’t any, at least in compared with the rules applied to previous presidents, not to mention the Democratic nominee whom Trump barely defeated last year.

This partially illiterate New York socialite turned reality-show punchline continues to be given opportunity after opportunity to behave in a reasonable, rational way by kneejerk pundits who appear desperate to artificially endow Trump with presidential qualities. His version of “presidential” lasts around 12 seconds and is barely more presidential than the behavior of a tween bully running for class president. Whether in describing his banal, off-the-rack address to Congress last month or his transparently political missile strike against a Syrian airbase, there are more than a few actors in the cable news sphere who can’t wait to normalize and legitimize Trump, only to be castrated by the president hours or days later.

In the aftermath of Trump’s ineffectual cruise missile strike against the Al Shayrat airfield in which 59 missiles constructed by Raytheon — a military contractor in which Trump owns undivested stock — caused marginal damage, allowing Bashar al-Assad to launch new airstrikes from the base the very next day, cable news was buzzing with declarations of Trump’s freshly acquired savoir-faire as a sober and decisive leader. This was Trump they were talking about — the TV huckster who once looked into a video camera and declared that “Trump Steaks,” inexplicably sold at Sharper Image stores back in the day, “are the world’s greatest steaks, and I mean that in every sense of the word.”

It’s also worth noting that President Obama dropped more than 26,000 bombs in 2016, his final year in office.

NBC News reporter Kristen Welker said she thought Trump had “turned a page” in his presidency: “This is a president who is coming off of a rocky couple of weeks. Arguably, he’s turned the page on that to some extent with these foreign leader meetings that he’s had this week and now with the focus on Syria.”

Elliott Abrams wrote in the Weekly Standard that “the Trump administration can truly be said to have started only now. The president has been chief executive since January 20, but this week he acted also as Commander in Chief. And more: He finally accepted the role of Leader of the Free World.”

Fox News Channel’s Carl Higbie: “Huge victory. All the people I have spoken to recently, active and former, have all said this was Donald Trump’s first test and he absolutely nailed it. This is right on par. This is a show of force that the world needs to see and the world now knows that we will do. And everybody in the military that I have spoken to is extremely proud to call him our president this morning.”

On Friday night’s “Real Time With Bill Maher,” CNN’s Ana Navarro qualified her praise for Trump, but endowed him with a role neither he nor any president actually possesses. Navarro said, “I still think he is a racist, misogynist, lying pig, but he’s also my commander in chief.” Apologies for nitpicking, but the president isn’t Navarro’s commander in chief, nor is he the commander of any American civilian. He’s strictly the commander in chief of the military. Nothing more. Please stop giving him ideas like this. Thank you.

CNN’s Fareed Zakaria has been widely and justifiably mocked as the worst of the batch, declaring: “I think Donald Trump became President of the United States” with this ineffectual strike.

The only excuse I can think of for this brand of unearned fluffing, other than submissiveness and/or masochism, is that certain members of the press continue to genuflect before the “both sides” attitude. These are transparently weak attempts to generate some sense of cosmetic balance around the coverage of a president who, no matter what he says or does now, is still under numerous federal investigations for colluding with Russia to hijack the 2016 election cycle. It was a trespass against American sovereignty and the integrity of our electoral process, and if the current president was involved in any way, it was an unprecedented and massively treasonous act. And the Russia headlines make up only part of the roster of manifest reasons why Trump shouldn’t have been allowed to tour the White House, much less run the nation from the Oval Office.

A monkey can order a missile strike, and Trump kind of screwed this one up. He hit a few inconsequential items on the checklist — managing to avoid upwards of 100 Russian personnel who were on hand at the base for some still-unexplained reason — but he failed to take out any chemical weapons, which I thought was the point of sticking our noses into a civil war that hasn’t involved any attacks against the United States. And let’s say this again: Syrian fighter jets were taking off from Al Shayrat the next day. Oh, and Trump’s attack reportedly managed to kill seven civilians, including four children.

You had one job, Mr. President.

All in all, my biggest objection to Trump’s intervention in Syria — he’s also secretly put boots on the ground there, by the way — is the fact that it’s being carried out by this tabloid weirdo with cartoon hair named Donald Trump. It’s like finding out your bypass surgery is being performed by Gary Busey and the pilot for your cross-country flight will be Meat Loaf. Trump is in no way equipped with any of the qualities of a strong leader. He’s a petulant, obnoxious, intellectually incurious doofus who needed four tries to correctly spell the word “hereby.” He and his worthless, somnambulant secretary of state don’t have a Syria policy, beyond lamenting Assad’s murdering of babies on one hand while blocking other Syrian babies from seeking refuge from Assad inside the United States on the other.

Everything Donald Trump touches turns to crap sooner or later. As American warships steam toward the Korean peninsula, we, and especially the cable news media, must not forget who this president really is. We must not forget the myriad disasters and irreparable destabilization for which he’s responsible. And the worst is yet to come.
