Flynn likely broke the law by failing to disclose foreign payments, House Oversight leaders say

Image result for Michael Flynn CanaryFormer national security adviser Michael Flynn likely broke the law by failing to disclose foreign income he earned from Russia and Turkey, the heads of the House Oversight Committee said Tuesday.

Committee chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) and ranking member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) said they believe Flynn neither received permission nor fully disclosed income he earned for a speaking engagement in Russia and lobbying activities on behalf of Turkey when he applied to reinstate his security clearance, after viewing two classified memos and Flynn’s disclosure form in a private briefing Tuesday morning.

“Personally I see no evidence or no data to support the notion that General Flynn complied with the law,” Chaffetz told reporters following the briefing.

“He was supposed to get permission, he was supposed to report it, and he didn’t,” Cummings said.

More Evidence of Flynn’s Treason and How He Was Paid By the Russians Through Turkey

The Chumph’s boy Flynn offered up testimony in exchange for not being prosecuted…He thought he could offer a deal and testify only on his own terms, and pick and choose what he disclosed.

The Government, and Congress shot down that ploy…Quickly.

Apparently Flynn didn’t know how much the Government had on his ass.

He is not looking at “11 Years in Twelveworth”…

He is looking at half the next century in a hole in the ground out west with no windows. If he dies before the sentence is up – They may just bury him in the Deseret in a cell to serve out the rest of his term.

He is gonna squeal! Or serve some really long hard time.

Ditto for the other Chumph co-conspirators.

And there isn’t a damn thing the Republican co-conspirators in Congress can do about it…Which is why Chaffetz jumped ship. At some point they are going to get around the Republican traitors who tried to derail the investigation.

In Russia, almost all roads in major business lead to the Putin Cartel. An international criminal Cartel which controls not only the organized crime, but oil, natural gas, and other industries.So Flynn ultimately was on Putin’s payroll, as was Carter Page, and Paul Manafort….And Putin’s Bitch.

Ain’t nobody giving a fired (Flynn had been tossed out of the Military) and disgraced US General $600,000…To do anything legal.

The only real question left is…Did they get Sessions too?

Flynn’s Turkish lobbying linked to Russia

The former national security adviser’s client had business dealings in Russia and worked with an executive in Russian oil companies on Turkish lobbying projects.

170424-Michael-Flynn-AP_17089851495505.jpgThe Turkish man who gave Mike Flynn a $600,000 lobbying deal just before President Donald Trump picked him to be national security adviser has business ties to Russia, including a 2009 aviation financing deal negotiated with Vladimir Putin, according to court records.

The man, Ekim Alptekin, has in recent years helped to coordinate Turkish lobbying in Washington with Dmitri “David” Zaikin, a Soviet-born former executive in Russian energy and mining companies who also has had dealings with Putin’s government, according to three people with direct knowledge of the activities.

This unusual arrangement, in which Alptekin and Zaikin have helped steer Turkish lobbying through various groups since at least 2015, raises questions about both the agenda of the two men and the source of the funds used to pay the lobbyists.

Although Turkey is a NATO ally, its president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has grown increasingly authoritarian and friendly with Putin. And the hiring of Flynn by Alptekin came at a time when Flynn was working for Trump’s campaign and Putin’s government was under investigation for interfering with the U.S. election.

Flynn’s lawyer, Robert Kelner, declined to comment. In a filing with the Justice Department, Flynn said he relied on assurances from Alptekin that he was not directly or indirectly funded by a foreign government. But shifting explanations and a web of business ties raise questions about the arrangement.

Flynn has offered evolving accounts of his lobbying work for Alptekin. In September, Flynn reported his client as a Dutch shell company owned by Alptekin. After being forced to leave the White House — reportedly because he lied to Vice President Mike Pence about his conversations during the transition with the Russian ambassador — Flynn filed new paperwork in March acknowledging that his lobbying work “principally benefitted” the Turkish government.

The revelation of Russian business ties to the man who hired Flynn — which has not been previously reported — threatens to complicate the White House’s struggle to escape the shadow of the FBI investigation into whether members of the Trump campaign coordinated with Russian agents.

Flynn has been a focus for concerns about Russian ties to both the Trump campaign, for which he was a key adviser and surrogate, and the Trump administration, in which, as national security adviser, he had access to the most sensitive state secrets.

He also has a history of failing to disclose ties to Russia. His original White House ethics disclosure failed to include payments from Kremlin propaganda network RT and two other Russian companies. The RT payment was for a paid speech Flynn gave at a Moscow gala where he sat at the same table as Putin.

A White House spokesman declined to comment.

Zaikin declined to be interviewed but said in an email that he wasn’t involved in Flynn’s lobbying and doesn’t know Alptekin.

Alptekin, in an interview, said he hired Flynn with his own money and did not coordinate any lobbying for the Turkish government. He also denied knowing Zaikin.

But Alptekin acknowledged that he has attended events and met with leaders of the Turkish Heritage Organization, a Washington-based group of Turkish-Americans loyal to Erdogan. The organization was started when Zaikin asked a Washington-based international political consultant named John Moreira to help set it up, Moreira told POLITICO.

Asked why Zaikin — who is not Turkish and has no apparent ties to Turkey — would be organizing a Turkish heritage organization, Moreira said he thought Zaikin had Turkish friends and business associates.

“I don’t know who David was working for. He just asked me to do this,” Moreira said.

Moreira said he was paid to help manage the heritage organization but would not say by whom…

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.

73% Don’t Trust Republican Congress To Do a Honest Investigation of Russia-Trump

Liars, traitors,  and scumbags like Nunes and Chaffetz have eliminated any trust in Republicans putting Patriotism over Party…

Poll: 73% Back Independent Probe of Russian Election Interference

Nearly three-quarters of Americans say they want an independent, non-partisan commission instead of Congress to investigate Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

Seventy-three percent of respondents prefer the independent investigation, versus 16 percent who pick Congress.

Still, a majority of Americans — 54 percent — believe that Congress should investigate whether there was contact between the Russian government and the Trump campaign, which is essentially unchanged from February’s NBC/WSJ poll.

That includes 84 percent of Democrats and 51 percent of independents who want to see this congressional investigation, but just 21 percent of Republican respondents who want it.

Yet a combined 61 percent of Americans say they have little to no confidence in Congress conducting a fair and impartial investigation into Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election.

Only a combined 39 percent say they have “some” or a “great deal” of confidence in Congress conducting a fair and impartial investigation.

These numbers come as committees in both the House and Senate are looking into Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election. But the House investigation erupted in controversy after House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes, R-Calif., suggested that Trump and his associates may have been monitored by U.S. intelligence officials during the transition.

Nunes stepped aside from the investigation earlier this month.

Whats On Those Tapes? Conspiracy Theorist Says Trump Contacted Putin Through Carter Page

Not sure why the Chumph’s team thought they could get away with communicating with Russian spies – but according to this guy, conversations between Trump and his Campaign Cartel are on FBI tapes. The intercepts in this case being made by other countries.

If true – that will remain classified for about 8 minutes after the FBI tells Congress.

The other question is, if the FBI had such information – why didn’t they move on it before the election?

Conspiracy blogger: Carter Page went to Russia with secret recording of Trump asking Putin to hack election

Conspiracy theorist and national security blogger Louise Mensch asserted that former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page took a recording to Russia of Donald Trump personally authorizing Russian President Vladimir Putin’s regime to hack the 2016 election.

In a column over the weekend, Mensch alleges that “sources with links to the intelligence community” believe that “Carter Page went to Moscow in early July carrying with him a pre-recorded tape of Donald Trump offering to change American policy if he were to be elected, to make it more favorable to Putin.”

The report claims that Page “was authorized directly by Trump to request the help of the Russian government in hacking the election.”

Mensch comes to the conclusion that Page, former campaign manager Paul Manafort and former aide Boris Epshteyn were “were all acting in concert as agents of the Russian state first and foremost, and Trump staffers second.”

“Because the provision of such a tape to Putin would clearly be the ultimate in kompromat on a future American President (far worse than any sexual blackmail tape),” Mensch notes.

The Washington Post reported last week that the FBI obtained a secret court order allowing agents to spy on Page as part of an investigation into links between the Trump campaign and Russian officials.

Mensch writes: “[T]he point is that intelligence sources say that Page, Manafort and Epshteyn, possibly also with Trump, are on tape discussing how Page should carry a recording of Donald Trump to Moscow, offering his bona fides in exchange for Russia’s help hacking the election.”

“[M]ultiple foreign intelligence services, among them the UK, Germany and Ukraine, have a tape of this; and that finally, in October, the FBI was able to listen to that tape.”

House Intel Member on Trump Investigation – “I wouldn’t be surprised … that some people end up in jail.”

Jail to the Chumph!

 

 

House intel member drops bombshell: Some Trump associates will ‘end up in jail’ after Russia probe

Rep. Joaquín Castro (D-TX), a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence—which is investigating ties into Donald Trump’s campaign and Russian operatives—stunned CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Tuesday when he insisted his impression of the evidence thus far indicates that “some people” will “end up in jail.”

Asked by Blitzer if he’s seen hard evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russians working to influence the 2016 presidential election, Castro replied “I guess I would say this: My impression is, I wouldn’t be surprised after all of this is said and done, that some people end up in jail.”

“Really?” a shocked Blitzer asked, wondering “how high” up in the administration Castro’s suspicion goes.

“That’s yet to be determined,” Castro replied.

Blitzer pressed the Texas Democrat over his contention that “people, plural” will end up in jail after the investigation plays out.

“That’s my impression, yes,” Castro said, declining Blitzer’s request to “elaborate” on that assertion.

“But at this point, you’re confident that at least some Trump associates will wind up in jail?” Blitzer askers

“If I were betting, I would say yes,” Castro insisted.

The CNN host asked if that includes people who are currently involved in the Trump administration. Castro said he would have to “comment on that later,” reiterating: “Again, if somebody asked me my impression—my impression is that people will probably be charged and I think people will probably go to jail.”

The Chumph Cookie Crumbles… White House Staff and Secret Intelligence Reports Given to Nunes

Sort of like Watergate…It ain’t the crime, but the coverup which lands your ass in jail.

We now know that two individuals within the Whites Only House passed classified intelligence to Congressman Nunes, who promptly turned it over to the Press to cover-up Putin’s Bitch treason.

Congressman Nunes has now officially committed a crime, along with the guilty parties in the White House, and if there were more than a half dozen Republicans in Congress who gave a damn about America,  the Constitution and/or our Laws… He ought to be doing a quick walk out of Congress bracketed by a couple of the Sargent at Arms, followed by a perp–walk to jail.

Now that Flynn has officially flipped to State’s evidence for the Congressional Committees, and will testify against the Chumph…

All hell is getting ready to break loose.

And we haven’t even gotten to the part yet about recorded conversations, between the CHumph’s staff and Russian spies…Or perhaps that of the Chumph hisself on the phone….Yet.

Manafort, looking at doing some hard time in a Ukrainian Prison…will likely be next.

‘Strap in tight’: GOP strategist Rick Wilson connects the dots on the latest Devin Nunes bombshell

News that Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) received intelligence of possible surveillance of Trump administration officials from two people from within the Trump administration rocked the political world on Thursday — and one longtime GOP strategist thinks more explosive revelations are still to come.

GOP strategist Rick Wilson wrote a tweet storm on Thursday afternoon that connected the dots that link Nunes, White House officials Michael Ellis and Ezra Cohen-Watnick, White House political strategist Steve Bannon, and  disgraced former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn.

“Two White House operatives — possibly improperly — accessed classified to pass it to Nunes as part of a political pushback operation,” Wilson began. “Who ordered it? Who asked for them to do so? If you think two lower-level guys took it upon themselves to make this play, I’ve got a Nigerian prince with $30 million dollars for you. Who is running the WH pushback operation on Trump’s Russia scandal? It rhymes with Beeve Stannon.”

From there, Wilson connected the entire story back to Flynn, who was ousted after it was revealed that he lied to the public and members about the Trump administration about the nature of his contacts with Russian government officials.

“Flynn’s stay-behind agent Cohen-Watnick was about to be shitcanned by [National Security Adviser H.R.] McMaster,” Wilson explained. “Cohen-Watnick — the NSC intel director — was a Flynnite from DIA days. Flynn was gone but the channel was still open.”

However, Wilson noted that both Bannon and Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner both personally pushed back on McMaster’s desire to fire Cohen-Watnick because he is “helping run the pushback operation on Russia with Nunes.”

“Strap in tight,” Wilson concluded. “It’s going to be a rough landing.”

1/ Second Tweetstorm of the Day. Sorry.

2/ The Ellis connection was obvious from the moment I heard it. Nunes is a clumsy liar, and DC only rewards talented liars.

3/ Spicer lied in his briefing about Nunes getting the intel from WH sources…and I think it can be proven that Nunes lied to Ryan.

4/ So two WH operatives — possibly improperly — accessed classified to pass it to Nunes as part of a *political* pushback operation.

5/ Who ordered it? Who asked for them to do so? If you think two lower-level guys took it upon themselves to make this play…

6 …I’ve got a Nigerian prince with $30 million dollars for you.

7/ Who is running the WH pushback operation on Trump’s Russia scandal?

It rhymes with Beeve Stannon.

8/ This is where it gets good, so ride along with me. Flynn’s staybehind agent Cohen-Watnick was about to be shitcanned by McMaster.

9/ Cohen-Watnick — the NSC intel director — was a Flynnite from DIA days. Flynn was gone but the channel was still open.

10/ McMaster, Pompeo et al wanted him gone. “But Rick,” you ask, “Why was he STILL there with all we know about Flynn?” pic.twitter.com/BPuRd5Y2Do

View image on Twitter

11/ Why would Bannon and Kushner race to this guy’s defense? Because he’s helping run the pushback operation on Russia with Nunes.

12/ Strap in tight, because this is going to be a rough landing.
