Piecing Together More Details on Trump and Russia
We’ve had a flurry of articles this week about the Trump/Russia story. I want to flag some details which are now apparent as we look at each of the articles together.

Let’s start with the news that Carter Page was surveilled by the FBI using a FBI warrant obtained in the summer of 2016. The Washington Post and New York Times stories on this tell a slightly different story on the precise timing of the first warrant. The Times says August. The Post at least seems to say July. I wouldn’t make too much of this disagreement. It’s possible the Post story is speaking loosely in one case or I over-interpreted a key sentence. ...

... I’ve noted earlier that the FBI especially and likely the CIA too had direct information about Trump’s business associations with people involved with Russian and post-Soviet organized crime. From my read, which I’ve set forth here, the FBI clearly had pretty deep institutional knowledge of Trump’s ties to oligarchs and organized crime figures in Russia well before he ran got into the 2016 presidential race. While the FBI is the agency leading the current investigation, I think will still need to know much, much more about what the FBI knew prior to 2016, what its relationship was with Trump going back to the 1980s and how all this played into the progress of the investigation in 2016 and particularly the critical summer and fall months of that year.

Die Kreise gehen viel tiefer und weiter. Da sind eine ganze Anzahl anderer Leute mit involviert.
Wenn der FBI seine Arbeit richtig macht, wanderen womoeglich eine Hand voll hinter Gitter.


Carter Page Went to Moscow With a Tape of Donald Trump Offering Treason For Hacking
Sources with links to the intelligence community say it is believed 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. In exchange, Page was authorized directly by Trump to request the help of the Russian government in hacking the election.

On November 7th I reported that the FBI had been granted a FISA warrant to investigate the activities of two Russian banks, Alfa Bank and Silicoln Valley Bank. I also reported that an earlier attempt to obtain a FISA warrant, in June, had failed in the court because it named Donald Trump himself and three of his associates. In an exclusive at Patribotics, I reported that these named associates were Carter Page, Paul Manafort, and Boris Epshteyn. ...

Trump and the Russia Money

...First, it broadly lines up with a lot that we know. Before the ties between Trump and Russia became a story in 2016, it was already widely known that Trump had been effectively blackballed by all the big US banks for years. Deutschebank, which is of course a German bank, has been the only major bank to continue loaning Trump money for about twenty years. So we know most big banks wouldn’t lend to Trump well before 2008. So that part largely checks out.

We also know that in the decade before he ran for President, Trump became increasingly reliant on money out of the former Soviet Union. This was both for purchases of apartment units, to fund major projects like Trump Soho, in Lower Manhattan, in addition to many other projects.

Richtig. Aber Kushner ist wegen seiner zahlreichen, von Trump auferlegten Aufgaben sicherlich die interessanteste, weil politisch bedeutendste Figur unter diesen. Wäre lustig, (auch) ihn hinter Gittern zu sehen ... Aber Schwiegerpapi wird's wohl schon richten! :-(

Schwiegerpapi kann nichts mehr richten, wenn er selber ins Visier geraet. Im Moment lebt Baron von Trumphausen selbst nur davon, dass die GOP ihn in Ruhe laesst. Noch.
Wenn fuer die erst mal sichtbar wird, dass er sie selbst mit in den Abgrund reisst, dann ist Schluss mit lustig.

Der Tage kann bereits heute schon kommen mit der Sonderwahl in Atlanta.
Dort steht eine Sonderwahl fuer den von Tom Price freigewordenene Kongressplatz an. Tom Price ist in die Trump Administration als Gesundheitsminister eingetreten und der Platz muss neu besetzt werden. Der alte Wahlkreis von Newt Gingrich und seit rund 40 Jahren unter GOP Kontrolle.
Es kann durchaus sein dass ein Demokrat den nun gewinnt.
Der Wind dreht sich. Hauptsaechlich wegen Trumpfenhausen.

Und wenn die GOP mal nicht mehr alles blockiert was in den Untersuchungsauschuessen gesammelt wird, dann aendert sich der Ton sehr schnell.
Nicht vergessen: zwischen den ersten Zweifeln an Nixon bis zu seinem Ruecktritt lagen mal ganze sechs Monate. So schnell kann es gehen.

Exclusive: Putin-linked think tank drew up plan to sway 2016 U.S. election - documents

A Russian government think tank controlled by Vladimir Putin developed a plan to swing the 2016 U.S. presidential election to Donald Trump and undermine voters’ faith in the American electoral system, three current and four former U.S. officials told Reuters.

They described two confidential documents from the think tank as providing the framework and rationale for what U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded was an intensive effort by Russia to interfere with the Nov. 8 election. U.S. intelligence officials acquired the documents, which were prepared by the Moscow-based Russian Institute for Strategic Studies [en.riss.ru/], after the election.
The institute is run by retired senior Russian foreign intelligence officials appointed by Putin’s office.

“We did our best for nearly eight years to implement your foreign policy concept,” Reshetnikov told Putin. “The policy of Russia and the policy of the President of Russia have been the cornerstone of our operation.”

Sources: Russia tried to use Trump advisers to infiltrate campaign
The FBI gathered intelligence last summer that suggests Russian operatives tried to use Trump advisers, including Carter Page, to infiltrate the Trump campaign, according to US officials.

The new information adds to the emerging picture of how the Russians tried to influence the 2016 election, not only through email hacks and propaganda but also by trying to infiltrate the Trump orbit. The intelligence led to an investigation into the coordination of Trump's campaign associates and the Russians.

Michael Flynn Hid $33,000 Russian Payday From Feds, Officials Say
He didn’t ask permission before Putin’s propaganda network RT paid him in 2015, new documents show, and he didn’t disclose it afterwards.

Military officials explicitly warned Michael Flynn against accepting payments from foreign governments after he left the Pentagon, and instructed him to disclose any such payments if they occurred.
But the retired general subsequently took such a payment and failed to disclose it, according to documents released by congressional investigators on Thursday.
Documents released by the House Oversight Committee show that the Defense Intelligence Agency, which Flynn directed before joining the White House in January, has no record of him disclosing a $33,750 payment from state-sponsored Russian broadcaster Russia Today.

Trump’s Son-In-Law Is Told To ‘Lawyer Up’
The stakes are high for the White House as the Trump administration struggles to reboot.

The fire in the underbrush is getting closer to Donald Trump and seems to be burning brighter as well.

California Congressman Ted Lieu of Torrance, California, has advised Donald Trump’s son-in-law that he’d better “lawyer up.” Lieu claims Kushner, 36, lied and committed a crime regarding contact with foreign governments. “Kushner committed a felony by not disclosing two meetings with high profile Russians during his security clearance hearings,” Lieu told MSNBC’s AM Joy.

<<4 times in 4 days: Russian military aircraft fly off US coast>>

"Washington (CNN) - Russian military aircraft were spotted flying off the coast of Alaska for the fourth time in as many days, a spokesperson for the North American Aerospace Defense Command told CNN on Friday.

The two most recent sightings occurred late Wednesday and on Thursday, with the first involving two IL-38 maritime patrol aircraft and the second involving two Tu-95 nuclear-capable Bear bombers....
...
Part of larger strategy

Moscow, for its part, said it "regularly carries out patrol missions above the neutral waters of the Arctic, the Atlantic, the Black Sea and the Pacific Ocean."
"All such missions are carried out in strict compliance with international regulations and with respect to national borders," the Russian Defense Ministry said in a written statement.

But this week's encounter plays into a larger effort by Russian President Vladimir Putin "to prove Russia is back in the game," according to Howard Stoffer, a former State Department staffer. ..."

Daran, ob es Trump geling, ein konstruktives Verhältnis zu Russland aufzubauen, wird sich entscheiden, ob Trump tatsächlich im Vergleich zu Clinton die bessere Wahl für das Amt des Präsidenten war.
Gelingt es ihm, ist das der Schlüssel für die Lösung einer Reihe von lang gärenden Problemen. Passiert da was, überwiegt das locker all das Gejammer der vergangenen Monate, wie schlimm Trump doch angeblich so ist.
Gelingt es ihm nicht, naja, bleibt der Schaden, den er zweifellos anrichtet. Von dem ich weiterhin (noch) denke, er ist nicht so hoch wie der, den Clinton angerichtet hätte.
Erreicht er über diese Schiene was, sollten sich die Demokraten schonmal Gedanken zu 2020 machen. Kontinuierliches Beleidigtsein, nicht die "beanspruchte" Präsidentschaft erreicht zu haben, wird für einen Regierungswechsel dann auch nicht reichen.

Es ist nichts leichter als das, jemanden aufzustellen, der besser als Präsident geeignet wäre als der Geisetskranke (gilt übrigens sogar für die GOP). Selbst eine Putzfrau der Parteizentrale der Demokraten wäre hierfür besser geeignet, sofern sie mental gut beisammen ist.

CHECHEN AUTHORITIES ‘SUMMON PARENTS TO PRISON CAMPS TO KILL THEIR GAY SONS’
The full horror facing gay men in Chechnya continues to emerge.

Authorities in Chechnya have been summoning parents to detention centres before telling them to kill their gay children, according to harrowing new survivor testimonies.
Horrifying accounts of brutality and killings have been emerging from the largely self-governing Russian republic over the last month, after Novaya Gazeta reported that over 100 gay and bisexual men aged 16-50 had been detained by authorities over the last few months.
The newspaper now claims to have a list of more than 30 gay men who have been executed by the authorities or their own families during the terrifying campaign of violence.

One man who escaped Chechnya, and whose name, identity and location have been kept a secret for his own safety, tells France 24: “We’ve always been persecuted but never like this. Now they arrest everyone.
“They kill people. They do what they want. They know that nobody will come after them because the order has come from above to ‘cleanse the nation’ of people like us.

Putin says he’ll brief US on summit with Kim
President Vladimir Putin says he’s willing to share details with the United States about his summit on Thursday with Kim Jong Un, potentially raising Russia’s influence in the stalemated issue of North Korean denuclearization.

The two leaders’ first one-on-one did not indicate major changes in North Korea’s position: Putin said Kim is willing to give up nuclear weapons, but only if he gets ironclad security guarantees.

However, Putin said Kim urged him to explain the nuances of North Korea’s position to President Donald Trump. Such an interlocutor role could be meaningful in light of Trump’s apparent admiration of the Russian leader.
https://apnews.com/fbe1a8e788aa444481ef8...vb6tFnubSXaR1Gk

Putin wird also entscheiden was sein Statthalter im Weissen Haus, der orangene ass-clown, zu wissen braucht und was nicht. Passt.
