Shoot the panda – 5 months before the Seth Rich murder!

An article from Vanity Fair January 24, 2016 titled Hillary Clinton Cannot Be Stopped contains an eerie reference to “Shoot the Panda”.

There is more evidence in this article that Hillary Clinton and the DNC murdered Seth Rich than there is that Trump colluded with Russia.

Where is the Special Prosecutor looking into this?

I’m just sayin’.

Panda was Seth Rich’s nickname.

A Timeline Of Events Surrounding The Russian Hack Narrative

An awesome timeline by reddit user RulerOfSlides:
Russia-Wiretapping hypotheses only timeline

I think I’ve got some of this worked out. The pieces are really starting to come together. First, what we learned recently:

  • Andrew McCabe gets manipulated/bribed into hiring a former MI6 agent to “research” (read: bullshit) the Trump dossier. Ties directly to the Clinton campaign (his wife received money from them or donated, iirc).
  • Hillary Clinton was confirmed to have access to intelligence and classified files after she left office as Secretary of State.
  • CrowdStrike recently redacted their statements that were used to support their claims of Russian interference in the election. They also were the only ones to look at the DNC’s servers; the FBI was prohibited to do so by the DNC itself.
  • Hillary Clinton and the head of CrowdStrike, Dimitri Alperovitch, were both ranking members of the Atlantic Council, a Soros-financed think tank.
  • Susan Rice requested that all intelligence relating to the Trumps (his whole family), gathered across a period of several years going back to 2013 (possibly earlier) be unmasked.
  • Jeh Johnson may also have been involved in unmasking Trump-related intelligence, but that connection is tenuous at best.
  • EDIT: I neglected to mention Evelyn Farkas, who accidentally disclosed the fact that the Obama administration had been spying on members of Trump’s campaign, as well as some of his friends is also a member of the Atlantic Council. She also had worked under the Clinton campaign since around 2015, and in her previous job dealt with Russia/Ukraine foreign policy.
  • EDIT II: Cernovich reported a few moments ago that three people close to Obama who had the authorization to unmask intelligence reports were Susan Rice, John Brennan, and Loretta Lynch – all three of whom were key players in the Russia narrative.
  • EDIT III: Developing possibility that Flynn and Trump may have cooperated to catch the spying apparatus/”Council of Evil” that Obama left behind, going off of a foreign intelligence tip. I have incorporated this into the timeline.
  • 4/3/2017 EDIT IV: Bloomberg now reporting on Rice’s unmasking efforts. The big takeaway here is that Nunes made a visit to the White House before his press conference to view the National Security Council systems that held the logs of Rice’s requests to unmask people that intelligence had been gathered on. I think this explains why Bannon was added to the NSC – Trump has eyes and ears in an area that he would otherwise have been blind to. It probably aided in gathering information about what was going on, too. (It’s also funny to see the media clinging to the literal definition of “wiretapping”). Adam Schiff also viewed these logs, hence his decided reluctance to properly comment on what was found.
  • 4/3/2017 EDIT V: Adding some small additional details that I uncovered from digging through the Podesta files. Podesta ID #34639, which better detectives than I concluded that this showed an effort at tying up Trump, Assange, and Russia. The screenshot is dead, sadly, but this happened in March 2016. Podesta ID #17020 also establishes a tenuous but still-present connection between Podesta and the Atlantic Council.
  • 4/4/2017 EDIT VI: As of a few hours ago, we now know slightly more about what happened with the fake Trump dossier. Steele was not paid directly by the FBI as originally speculated – that deal appears to have fallen through, but McCabe was closely involved in negotiating that payment, leaving the Clinton connection valid. The firm involved with it, Fusion GPS, began working on the dossier in September 2015, hired by an anti-Trump Republican donor. That deal was broken off some time after that, and then a Democratic supporter of Clinton started paying Fusion GPS to keep going, and this is the point where Steele was brought into the project.
  • 4/4/2017 EDIT VII: Contents of one of the Department of State emails (sent on November 21, 2009) recently declassified by the FBI indicate that Clinton’s infamous server was established to work around the intelligence-gathering systems that would later be used against President-elect Trump, or an ancestor to those systems. I unfortunately don’t remember who originally found this; I can’t be credited with this discovery – only integrating it into the timeline.
  • 4/5/2017 EDIT VIII: Apparently Susan Rice had a lot of friction with, of all the agencies, the NSA. One fellow ‘pede summarized this very nicely. I have a feeling that this gives Rogers adequate motive to go to Trump Tower about the unmasking on November 22 – she was horribly unpopular, possibly even coming to blows with Rogers himself.
  • 4/5/2017 EDIT IX: New information seems to implicate the one and only John Brennan as the man who ordered enhanced surveillance on key Trump allies, including General Flynn, Erik Prince (head of Blackwater and a top CIA critic), and Sean Hannity. Brennan was also the one to order Susan Rice to unmask those Trump allies. I’ve placed this in its rightful spot on the timeline.
  • 4/5/2017 EDIT X: Man, today is the gift that keeps on giving. Fox published an article describing that the intelligence reports involved here were uncomfortably detailed, but that’s not what I’m interested in. This report gives us a better understanding of when the unmasking campaign began, (concurrent with the Obama administration’s “investigation” into the DNC leaks) and tells us that only one agency would have the capability to fully trace back the paper trail that led back to Rice, as well as the fact that only one agency could approve unmasking requests – the NSA.
  • 4/6/2017 EDIT XI: Further information about Clinton’s continued access to classified material even after leaving her post as Secretary of State in 2013 has surfaced, for the purpose of “writing her memoir” (emphasis on air-quotes mine). Beyond Clinton, six staffers had access to the same classified intelligence. I have a feeling that the six people are on this list – specifically, the five people involved with management and strategy (Mook, Benenson, Renteria, Podesta, and Abedin) and Cheryl Mills. This would explain classified information ending up on Weiner’s laptop, and Mills’ request for partial immunity in the email investigation back in September.
  • 4/6/2017 EDIT XII: At the risk of making this seem implausible by not citing sources (who I’d like to keep private, though they are an active member of this community I have received permission to cite this source), it seems likely that Nunes discovered that he himself was unmasked by Brennan, McCabe, and/or Obama’s combined orders (there are three points where unmaskings were ordered, it would seem – by McCabe before the election, by Obama starting in December, and then again by Brennan after the new intelligence-dissemination rules went into effect in January) – that’s why he stepped away from the investigation. Nunes was on the Trump transition team as of December 1, 2016.
  • 4/8/2017 EDIT XIII: New Wikileaks release indicates that Guccifer 2.0, an individual supposedly responsible for leaking the DNC emails to Wikileaks (in addition to other doccuments) was neither Russian (with 97% certainty) and may have been a staffer named Warren Flood (or someone that stole his computer). Wikileaks does not indicate that the DNC knew Seth Rich was the leaker, however, because when Rich was discussed in Guccifer 2.0’s messages to a certain actress, he had been dead for over a month.
  • 4/12/2017 EDIT XIV: CNN accidentally admits (screenshot) that John Podesta had ties to Russia via the Podesta Group. The Podesta Group represents, among other things, the interests of Sberbank of Russia, which itself is owned by the Central Bank of Russia – which is part of the Russian government. The filing of the Podesta Group as a foreign agent is highly suspect on top of that. Perhaps the Russia narrative originated not out of revenge, but simply because the Clinton campaign (itself tied to Russia) assumed that Trump’s campaign was doing the exact same thing they were.
  • 4/18/2017 EDIT XV: I have been informed of an excellent summary of Obama-era wiretapping activities. Of note is that the single successful FISA request revolved around Carter Page’s alleged Russian connections, likely stemming from very close ties to the Russian government. This opened the door to Trump himself being officially spied on.
  • 4/18/2017 EDIT XVI: CNN accidentally admits, for the second time, more evil things. The Steele dossier was used by the FBI to justify FISA approval of surveillance of Carter Page. Bear in mind that Steele was under negotiation to be paid by Deputy Director McCabe for the dossier, and that Comey himself informed the Trump administration of what was in it. What does this mean? This means that the FBI knew it was full of shit (also why Steele was never paid), but it was still used in a court of law as evidence. Page is currently being leveraged because, being a Russian sympathizer, he is the weakest link in the Trump campaign and the most easily painted as a pro-Russian agent – and he was far removed from Trump’s inner circle. This is the length they had to go to to find some kind of Russian ties – faking evidence and hunting for Russian sympathizers, the latter of which was just found recently.
  • 4/23/2017 EDIT XVII: Kind of small, but still important – the Failing NYT confirmed that the FBI indeed attempted to pay Steele $50,000 for the dossier – if he could prove the claims in it. It appears that Carter Page’s visits to Moscow in 2016 – though they were innocuous, and though Page never met with Trump – were the legal foundation for much of the “Russian ties” claims (used for the FSIA request). The source of the Page-Russia connection, beyond Steele, was identified as Sergei Millian, a particularly shady Belarusian-American businessman. Page was also detested by the Trump campaign, and a cease-and-desist for calling himself a Trump advisor was sent to him in December 2016.
  • 4/25/2017 EDIT XVIII: Christopher Steele admitted that the claims in his dossier were 100% unverified. Apparently he’s going to court over the fact that the contents of the dossier were printed; there’s also some additional details of interest in here. The “hacker” that Steele claimed was involved in all this was Aleksej Gubarev, who runs a web-hosting company, XBT Holdings. Additionally, it seems that it was not Steele himself who released the dossier to the media; instead, Fusion GPS took it and leaked it to try and damage the Trump administration’s credibility. Steele did have less formal communications with the media, though. We now have a place for the meeting between Steele and the FBI – Rome, Italy, at some unknown time.
  • 5/13/2017 EDIT XIX: Big league news, if true. A Russian citizen has come forward and claimed that the FBI wanted to frame him for the DNC leaks, offering US citizenship and a dismissal of charges in return. The FBI apparently visited him several times – notably “mid-November” 2016, and February 7, 2017. He was arrested on unrelated charges on October 5, 2016. The relevant dates have been added.
  • 5/15/2017 EDIT XX: The family of Seth Rich hired a private investigator, who today announced that there is evidence he was in contact with Wikileaks prior to his death. There is evidence, too, that local police were told to step back from the investigation into his murder.
  • 5/17/2017 EDIT XXI: More information from one of the chans about Seth Rich. Also some potentially interesting deaths that occurred around the same timeframe – Joe Montano, the DNC chairman before Wasserman-Schultz and aide to Tim Kaine (July 25, 2016); and Shawn Lucas, head of a class-action lawsuit against Wasserman-Schultz for rigging the DNC primary (August 2, 2016).
  • 5/17/2017 EDIT XXII: Lucky timing on this. I was just about to go to bed, and happened across someone else on this domreddit linking Podesta email number 25651, which describes the best approach to stopping Trump as leveraging his “bromance with Putin.” This was sent by Brent Budowsky, a Huffington Post contributor and a writer for The Hill. Looks like Syria might have been one of the deciding factors on getting the Clinton campaign to turn against Russia. What is more significant is that this email was sent on December 21, 2015 – a whole three months before the earliest construction of the “Russian hacker” narrative.

My timeline, approximately:

  • EDIT XXII: The December 21, 2015 email exchange between Bret Budowsky and John Podesta occurs, touching upon ISIS and the continuation of Obama-era foreign policy surrounding Syria, in which Budowsky advises Podesta to make a departure from then-current policy for fear of it becoming political baggage. A notable quote: “But at the least she should not be branding and infecting herself with Obama’s policy towards Syria and ISIS by offering such high and direct praise for it.” I suspect this is the genesis of the Russia narrative, and the reason why the Clinton campaign went so far down the anti-Russia path.
  • The Obama administration most likely had been gathering intelligence on every GOP candidate – either as part of their expanded intel operations or as an intentional, focused sabotage plan. This information would likely have been contained in the President’s Daily Briefings, which Nunes is rumored to have investigated on March 22 – just before making the announcement that Trump’s wiretapping claims were correct. EDIT IV: Though Nunes may have viewed the President’s Daily Briefings at some point in his investigation, or intends to, it seems that the linchpin for Nunes was viewing the logs of Rice’s unmasking attempts.
  • Clinton got wind of this investigation through her ability to access intelligence files and other means (i.e., direct ties to people in DC who were active in intelligence-gathering). This is where the “Russian hacker” narrative began, possibly bolstered by her relationship with Alperovitch – who is a Russian expat and absolutely loathes Vladimir Putin. She may have built a narrative out of CrowdStrike’s report, hopeful that the intel-gathering by the Obama administration would uncover further information about Russian interference. EDIT: Evelyn Farkas, who had been involved in Russia/Ukraine affairs, may also have been involved with this, again through the Atlantic Council. EDIT V: Upon digging through the Podesta files, it would seem that the Trump/Russia connection narrative was constructed just before March 16, 2016. The Atlantic Council had a meeting about “combating far-right extremism in Europe” on March 22 – less than a week later. I think it’s possible that the Atlantic Council meeting on the 22nd was when the Clinton campaign, represented by John Podesta (who was in DC the day before the meeting, according to this – Clinton herself was in Washington state) exchanged information with CrowdStrike. EDIT VII: Since we can now establish that Clinton was aware of a covert spying system as far back as 2009, it’s possible that she counted on that same system to uncover some kind of Trump/Russia connection. EDIT XI: Now we also know that there’s a strong possibility that six of Clinton’s staffers also had access to classified intelligence – I wouldn’t be surprised if they were involved in dissemination, either.
  • On June 12, 2016, Julian Assange teases the release of the DNC’s emails, some three weeks after the latest possible date they could have been collected.
  • June 14, 2016 is the earliest date that has been connected to the official release of CrowdStrike’s report on the DNC “hack.” It may have been released the day after, too.
  • EDIT XIII: Guccifer 2.0 emerges onto the scene on June 15, 2016, and claims responsibility for the DNC hacks that were teased by Julian Assange barely three days earlier. Signs indicate that this may have been some kind of damage control by the DNC, coming off of the Podesta-Atlantic Council-CrowdStrike exchange that likely happened the previous month – basically, releasing “additional” information while lazily incorporating Russian “fingerprints” (i.e., writing the metadata in Cyrillic) into those releases as a means of shifting the blame to Russian influence. This is the second-earliest point at which “Russian ties” had been discussed publicly, and I have a feeling that the DNC took marching orders from the Clinton campaign (who had a discussion about Trump/Putin/Assange ties two months before, likely because they sensed a threat) in trying to sabotage Trump. Based off of some things that Guccifer 2.0 misinterpreted, it seems that he had zero connection to CrowdStrike’s report aside from reading it, so some insulation existed between the DNC and Clinton campaign.
  • EDIT XX: On July 10, 2016, Seth Conrad Rich, a DNC staffer, is murdered in Washington D.C.
  • On July 22, 2016, Wikileaks begins the release of 44,000 emails from the DNC spanning a period from January 2015 to May 25, 2016.
  • EDIT III: Oh boy. This – roughly July or August – is about the point at which, should the possibility laid out by Jonathan Langdale be correct (which Flynn’s apparent “thumb’s-up” lends extra credence to), Russia was responsible for approaching the Trump campaign and making them aware of the surveillance that was going on. Basically, Trump and Flynn laid out a trap for the “Council of Evil” (which I’ve come to call the Lynch/Rice/McCabe/Brennan/Clapper circle that seems to have been the main people involved with the Russia narrative) and the deep state, in which Flynn would be made to seem untrustworthy in order to draw out and embolden leakers. They couldn’t do anything about it, like go public with it, because it would jeopardize their chances of winning the election and thus prevent the campaign from investigating it further. Additionally, the FBI’s actions with Clinton made them seem untrustworthy; it was readily obvious as well that the DoJ was compromised after Bill’s infamous meeting with Lynch on the tarmac – meaning they had nowhere to turn but inwards.
  • CrowdStrike’s report, which formed the backbone of Russian hacking allegations, found its way through the three-letter agencies and eventually indirectly caused the last FISA request over a Trump-controlled server to go through. [EDIT III: This may have been motivated by Russia’s detection of Trump’s surveillance as hypothesized by Langdale] Several previous requests had been made, probably because the former (above EDIT III) bullet point happened in around June or July. The FBI found nothing while investigating it. EDIT II: Loretta Lynch’s ability to view unmasked intelligence documents may have played a role in allowing the FISA request to go through – likely as a way of building evidence for the brewing Russian hackers narrative.
  • EDIT XXI: On August 9, 2016, Wikileaks officially offers $20,000 for information about Seth Rich’s murder.
  • EDIT VI: At around this point, the funding for Fusion GPS to create the Trump dossier dries up, shifting away from the unknown Democrat. Clinton, fearing that the Russian hacking narrative is on shaky grounds, indirectly pays off Andrew McCabe to come up with some kind of dirt on Trump. McCabe then begins negotiating hiring Fusion GPS, who has brought Christopher Steele, a former MI6 agent, into their investigation. The money never makes it to Fusion GPS, and Steele spends several months “working” on it, sends it off to the mainstream media, and it floats around for several months until Buzzfeed publishes it as a means of undermining the Trump administration. Bear in mind that, by this point, the dossier had been in development for over a year.
  • McCabe believes Steele’s then-incomplete dossier, as well as CrowdStrike’s claims, and then begins to plan a soft overthrow of the Trump administration starting with the weakest link – Mike Flynn. Flynn is later forced out due to his own faults, [EDIT III: My original assumption here may be untrue, and this may have been part of a grander plan] but the assault doesn’t stop there. Comey may have been aware of McCabe’s actions, but ignored them. [EDIT XVII: This has been basically confirmed – the FBI knew of the dossier.]
  • EDIT XIX: Yevgeniy Nikulin, a Russian national, is arrested on October 5, 2016 by the Russian government over unrelated hacking charges (on the order of the US government). Two days later (October 7), the DNI (Clapper) and DHS (Jeh Johnson) jointly stated that Russia was behind the DNC server hack, as well as the Podesta leaks.
  • On October 7, 2016, Wikileaks begins releasing the Podesta emails, covering a period from approximately 2006 to March 21, 2016.
  • In the third Presidential debate on October 19, 2016 Clinton makes the first public accusation that “Russian hackers” interfered with the election.
  • This is about the point where the media begins to go crazy over the “Russian ties” allegations, bolstered in some form or another by the CrowdStrike claims, Steele’s dossier, and quite possibly leaks from McCabe’s anti-Trump crusade in a kind of Deep Throat Jr. situation. I have a suspicion that McCabe and his FBI-based allies (the “McCabe 16” mentioned in the True Pundit article) were the source of the narrative. EDIT II: The CIA under Brennan – because of his access to unmasked intelligence reports – may also have been involved with leaks to the media, especially via the Washington Post, which some have deemed the “mouthpiece of the CIA.”
  • On October 22, 2016, Gavin MacFayden – Seth Rich’s rumored contact at Wikileaks – dies of lung cancer in London. He had apparently been ill for quite some time (I personally don’t consider his death suspicious – only that it makes it harder to piece together the truth).
  • EDIT IX: This is approximately Election Day. If the anonymous sources are indeed correct, then this is the point at which CIA director John Brennan orders enhanced surveillance on people in Trump’s inner circle – like Mike Flynn (already targeted by the FBI under McCabe), Erik Prince, and Sean Hannity. He may have also provided Rice with the specific documents or directions to find them that were later disseminated at the Obama administration’s behest starting sometime in December. Flynn was chosen due to the ease at which he could be leveraged; Hannity was chosen due to his apparent close ties to both Trump and Julian Assange, and Prince may have been focused on due to a long-standing personal feud with Brennan. The enhanced surveillance continues from November 8 to January 20. Note as well that this failed to turn up anything of note, as Director Clapper left office on January 20 and reported on March 6, 2017 that no evidence of Trump-Russia ties existed. In other words, the enhanced surveillance failed.
  • EDIT XIX: Nikulin receives his first visit from the FBI in “mid-November,” mere days before John McCain learns of Steele’s dossier.
  • EDIT VI: Thanks to the Daily Caller, we now know that John McCain learned about the dossier at the Halifax International Security Forum, which took place between November 18 and November 20, 2016. The person involved in bringing it to his attention was Sir Andrew Wood. Wood was a former ambassador for the UK to Russia, and knew Steele from his time at MI6. I have a suspicion that the exact date the discussion about the dossier happened was November 19, because Wood was involved in a panel on “Maidan, Crimea and the Obstacles to Democracy in Ukraine” on that date according to the agenda. Wood flew back to the UK, met with Steele, and handed the dossier off to McCain between November 19 (the last date I can confirm with reasonable certainty Wood was present in Halifax) and December 9, when McCain gave the dossier to James Comey during a meeting. Comey then briefed Trump on the existence of the dossier – which suggests to me that he was unaware of McCabe’s actions in trying to hire Fusion GPS – and once that meeting became known to the press, BuzzFeed published the complete dossier. EDIT XVI: Now we know that Steele’s dossier, likely the complete version handed to Comey, was used to bolster the FBI’s FISA request. Highly suspicious, and indicates the document was laundered.
  • EDIT X: Early December 2016. The Obama administration announces the beginning of an investigation into the DNC hacks, and the requests for unmasked intelligence reports relating to this begin at around this point. I think it’s likely that someone higher-up than Susan Rice ordered the unmasking, as the aforementioned paper trail through the NSA would have been immediately suspicious to the incoming Trump administration. This may also explain Rogers’ visit to Trump Tower, as unmasking in a less official manner had been going on for many months up to this point – this would merely be the latest effort to direct it at the Trump administration. I suspect the higher-up who ordered Rice to do this was most likely John Brennan; he intended Rice to be his fall guy when Trump caught up to what was going on.
  • The real unmasking begins once Obama amends EO 12333 to encourage free sharing of information between the three-letter agencies, on January 12. The new rules were signed by Clapper on December 15, so it’s reasonable to assume they had been floating around for a decently long time before that. Less than a month before Clapper agrees to them, NSA head Admiral Rogers visits Trump in an infamous “unscheduled meeting,” which draws ire from the rest of the intelligence community. It’s obvious at this point that this was in order to warn the new administration of what was going on behind closed doors, likely including the information sharing.
  • Susan Rice orders the unmasking of all Trump-related intelligence at some point after the information sharing rules go into effect. This allowed intelligence previously collected on Trump and his family to be widely disseminated between the FBI, CIA, and NSA, and thus exponentially increased the chances of leakers spreading that information to the press – which can (and did) happen. McCabe was involved in this due to his desire to force Flynn and then Trump out of office. Jeh Johnson may also have been involved in the unmasking process as well, but it’s unclear as to what his position was.
  • EDIT III: The trap from before the election was set; Flynn volunteered to be the fall guy as already a kind of black sheep in the administration (by being the sole Democrat), and he baited the intelligence community into going after him just before the new inter-agency intelligence sharing rules took effect. It worked like a charm – the media latched on to it, and Flynn handed Trump his resignation letter as the whole intelligence community fell for it hook, line, and sinker. It was now obvious who the leakers were and where they were coming from.
  • EDIT XIX: Nikulin receives his second visit from the FBI on February 7, 2017. Note that this happened after the unmasking scandal began falling apart in the waining days of the Obama administration.
  • EDIT II: Cernovich revealed tonight that H. R. McMaster was responsible for discovering Rice’s actions, and he was responsible for sending an aide to Nunes in order to blow the lid open on what was going on. This happened between February 20 (when he assumed office) and March 22 (when Nunes held his press conference). EDIT III: Flynn, it should be noted, resigned seven days before McMaster took office; I don’t think it’s a coincidence that he uncovered what Rice was doing in just over a month – Flynn’s dismissal drew all the termites out of the woodwork, and emboldened them in attempting to leak new, “damaging” information. The only effect this had was to highlight the leakers.
  • The White House figures out all of this, or some key portions of this, between January 20 and March 4. Thus follows Trump’s series of tweets discussing “wiretapping,” and the rest is history. EDIT IV: It wasn’t until early March that Rice was pinned down as the unmasker by lawyers at the White House, so I tend to think that Trump reported on “wiretapping” almost as soon as the smoking gun was found.

Media Propaganda Of The Day: Reuters Reports Trump Campaign Had 18 Undisclosed Contacts With Russians

Reuters reports the Trump campaign had 18 undisclosed contacts with Russians. Then clearly states in black and white “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”

From Reuters:
Exclusive: Trump campaign had at least 18 undisclosed contacts with Russians – sources

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 Sergei Kislyak, Russia’s ambassador to the United States, and Trump advisers, 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.

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.

In light of the Seth Rich “Coincidence”, Here is an info-graphic and PDF to refresh people’s memories.

A Look At The Clinton Body Count

THE CLINTON BODY COUNT

DNC IS IN FULL ATTACK MODE!! SETH RICH EVIDENCE EMERGES, WHICH ALSO BRINGS JOE MONTANO AND SHAWN LUCAS’S MURDERS BACK INTO THE SPOTLIGHT, AND AN $85 MILLION LAWSUIT FOR RIGGING THE PRIMARIES; WHICH THEY CANT AFFORD TO PAY!!

The DNC In Full Attack Mode

Remember, they didn’t just kill Seth Rich, but also Shawn Lucas, and Joe Montano. The link is the rigging of the convention and what that could mean for the survival of the DNC.

Seth Rich (died July 10th, 2016) leaked the Hillary emails to Wikileaks, which contained evidence which could be used to prove fraud at the convention.

Joe Montano (died July 25th, 2016) was the DNC chairman just before Wasserman Schultz took over. He could have been called as a witness.

Shawn Lucas (died Aug 2nd, 2016) spearheaded a class action lawsuit against the Wasserman Schultz rigging the DNC primary, stemming from Guccifer 2.0 leaked emails (prior to Wikileaks).

Wasserman Schultz tried to have the lawsuit delayed for months due to improper service, however video evidence clearly shows proper service:

Lawsuit against Debbie Wasserman moves forward: http://observer.com/2016/08/class-action-lawsuit-against-debbie-wasserman-schultz-moves-forward/

Lawsuit still ongoing, donors seeking repayment: http://www.newsweek.com/bernie-sanders-rigged-hillary-clinton-dnc-lawsuit-donald-trump-president-609582

The fact that the lawsuit is demanding repayment of donations is huge. The DNC doesn’t have that kind of money: $85 million dollars. The DNC currently has $11 million on hand: https://www.opensecrets.org/parties/totals.php?cmte=DNC&cycle=2016

If they are forced to repay they are bankrupt. They can’t expect to legally raise tens of millions of dollars from their supporters, people they have been proven to have defrauded.

THE DEMOCRATS ARE PULLING EVERY DIRTY TRICK THEY HAVE TO DISTRACT THE PUBLIC!! ALOT OF PEOPLE FALL FOR THESE UNSUBSTANTIATED ANONYMOUS SOURCES UNFORTUNATELY… SPREAD THIS INFORMATION, EVICERATE THESE SCUM AND BRING JUSTICE TO THE DECEASED AND THEIR FAMILIES! THEY ARE SCARED; SHILL ARE OUT IN FULL FORCE LIKE I HAVE NEVER SEEN. FIGHT BACK!! THEY WILL NOT REST!

Is this the SMOKING GUN in the Trump Russia Fake News narrative?

HRC Camp Plotted To Smear Trump For A Putin Bromance Way Back In 2015

A Wikileaks email shows that Hillary Clinton’s campaign team was advised to link Russian President Vladimir Putin with Donald Trump in an apparent bid to distract voters from her strategy on ISIS.

The exchange of emails between Clinton campaign chair John Podesta and Clinton ally and columnist Brent Budowsky was among the batch of around 1,000 emails from Podesta’s account released by WikiLeaks on October 22, 2016.

In a December 21, 2015 email, Budowsky criticizes Clinton’s position on fighting ISIS before advising Podesta to draw Putin into her attacks on Donald Trump.

Wikileaks Email ID 25621 Brent Budowsky advises Podesta – to smear Trump with a Putin “Bromance”:

Russia Setup

Budowsky’s email follows a discussion with Podesta on how to best position the former secretary of state on the issue of tackling ISIS.

Budowsky warns that Clinton is not coming down strongly enough on fighting ISIS and that her support for Obama’s approach is a potential “death ray to her candidacy in a general election.”

“Walk back and escape from her statement that ‘finally we are where we need to be’ against ISIS. We are not where we need to be, we are far from it, most voters do not believe it, and when the next terror attack comes in America – which it certainly will – she will be branded in hot iron with that statement,” Budowski warns.

“She will never state what I believe we need to do – at least 20,000 ground troops with 3,000 American and at least 10,000 from Sunni Muslim nations – because she is consumed with keeping Obama’s goodwill and afraid of liberal backlash.”

Podesta counters: “Her reference was not to ISIS but to going after Assad diplomatically because of UNSC resolution passed Friday. We will make that clear. She has given two major speeches about how we are NOT where we need to be on ISIS.”

“That’s good, sooner it’s clarified the better, and the stronger the better,” Budowski replies, later adding: “Best approach is to slaughter Donald for his bromance with Putin, but not go too far betting on Putin re Syria.”

Murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich believed to have leaked DNC emails to Wikileaks

DNC Staffer Seth Rich Leaked 44K Emails to WikiLeaks Before His Murder

New information has surfaced regarding the murder of Seth Rich, the Democratic National Committee staffer who was mysteriously killed last July in what Washington D.C. police claimed was a botched robbery despite no evidence to back the claim. After almost a year of conspiracy theories linking the staffer’s death to the DNC, private investigator Rod Wheeler has come forward with information indicating that those theories may not be too far off.

The former D.C. detective, hired by Rich’s family, indicated to local Fox affiliate Fox 5 that “there is tangible evidence on Rich’s laptop that confirms he was communicating with WikiLeaks prior to his death.” Wheeler believes the murder is being covered up and said a source inside the department told him D.C. police have been told not to investigate the case.

According to Wheeler:

The police department nor the FBI have been forthcoming. They haven’t been cooperating at all. I believe that the answer to solving his death lies on that computer, which I believe is either at the police department or either at the FBI. I have been told both.”

“I have a source inside the police department that has looked at me straight in the eye and said, ‘Rod, we were told to stand down on this case and I can’t share any information with you.’ Now, that is highly unusual for a murder investigation, especially from a police department. Again, I don’t think it comes from the chief’s office, but I do believe there is a correlation between the mayor’s office and the DNC and that is the information that will come out [Tuesday].”

Asked if his sources have told him that information exists linking Rich to Wikileaks, he said, “Absolutely. Yeah. That’s confirmed.”

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange gave no comment on the allegations but has not denied working with Rich and retweeted the breaking story shortly after it broke Monday evening. Wikileaks has offered a reward of $20,000 for information leading to the conviction of the murderer, and Assange previously implied Rich was involved in the leaks.

A spokesman for Rich’s family, Brad Bauman, stated Tuesday that the family had not authorized Wheeler to speak on their behalf and wanted to keep the focus on finding Seth’s murderers.

“Even if tomorrow, an email was found, it is not a high enough bar of evidence to prove any interactions as emails can be altered and we’ve seen that those interested in pushing conspiracies will stop at nothing to do so. We are a family who is committed to facts, not fake evidence that surfaces every few months to fill the void and distract law enforcement and the general public from finding Seth’s murderers,” said Bauman.

Regardless, Fox News released a separate, full report on Tuesday with new details on the investigation Tuesday morning, dropping the bombshell that a federal investigator has corroborated Wheeler’s claims. The outlet reported that “an FBI forensic report of Rich’s computer — generated within 96 hours after Rich’s murder — showed he made contact with WikiLeaks through Gavin MacFadyen, a now-deceased American investigative reporter, documentary filmmaker, and director of WikiLeaks who was living in London at the time, the federal source told Fox News.”

According to the report, “44,053 emails and 17,761 attachments between Democratic National Committee leaders, spanning from January 2015 through late May 2016, were transferred from Rich to MacFadyen before May 21.”

D.C. police insisted they’re working with the family to find the killers, offering a reward of $25,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible, while a separate reward of $130,000 has been offered by Republican lobbyist Jack Burman.

According to the anonymous federal investigator, he has “seen and read the emails between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks” and says the FBI is in possession of the damning evidence. It is important to note that the mainstream media, including the Washington Post, has been widely criticized for citing anonymous sources in its reporting on Russian election hacking claims.

Regardless, the FBI has not yet commented on the allegations.

Hillary Clinton approved the transfer of 20 percent of U.S. uranium to Russia and nine investors in the deal funneled $145 million to the Clinton Foundation.

Hillary Clinton Gave The Russians 20 Percent Of The U.S.’ Uranium Supply

While Hillary Clinton’s State Department was one of eight agencies to review and sign off on the transfer of 20 percent of U.S. uranium to Russia — then-Secretary of State Clinton herself was the only agency head whose family foundation received $145 million in donations from multiple people connected to the uranium deal, as reported by the New York Times.

The reason that the Mainstream Media and the Washington Elite continue the false narrative of Trump colluding with the Russians is to distract from the Clinton’s dealings with the Russians, Bill’s speaking fees and Hillary’s uranium deal. That is the real Russian scandal and has been from the beginning.

Donations to the Clinton Foundation, and a Russian Uranium Takeover

Uranium investors’ efforts to buy mining assets in Kazakhstan and the United States led to a takeover bid by a Russian state-owned energy company. The investors gave millions to the Clinton Foundation over the same period, while Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s office was involved with approving the Russian bid.

Is this why James Comey was really fired?

Potential Conflicts In Top FBI Official’s Role In Russia Collusion Probe

This PDF from Senator Grassley’s website is a must read but the last 4 pages are GOLD. If anyone questions you on the timing of Comey’s firing send them this.

McCabe is NEXT!

An additional bombshell here – as of Match 28 2017 the Clinton Foundation is still under investigation!

A snippet:

Mr. McCabe is already under investigation by the Department of Justice Office of Inspector General for failing to recuse himself from the Clinton investigation due to his meeting with McAuliffe. After that meeting, McAuliffe-aligned political groups donated about $700,000 to Mr. McCabe’s wife, Dr. McCabe, for her campaign to become a Democrat state Senator in Virginia.

This is alarming. McCabe gets away with this without any questions from the media regarding ethics.

You won’t find anything that is informative in the Mainstream Media. That’s a given at this point. If it’s being trumpeted in the Mainstream Media, you can automatically assume one of two things.

  1. It’s a bold faced lie for some agenda
  2. Whatever is being touted has been cherry picked from a barrel of other related facts and spun to benefit the elite somehow.

If the Mainstream Media is not talking about any given subject, and you see a lot of rumblings about it online, you can almost guarantee it’s probably true and/or important… It’s a sad state of affairs, not that this should be a shock to anyone in the know.

No one cared when China colluded with the Clintons to interfere in the ’96 Election; “Back in 1996, China helped then-President Bill Clinton get re-elected by funneling money to the Clinton campaign”

China Colluded With The Clintons To Interfere In The 1996 Election

The Mainstream Media has devoted exhaustive coverage over the allegation that Russia may have interfered with the 2016 election, as most recently seen in their massive reporting of the James Comey hearings. But there was a time when they didn’t care when a foreign country tried to buy a U.S. election (Hint: It helped a Democrat).

Back in 1996, China helped then-President Bill Clinton get re-elected by funneling money to the Clinton campaign. During Clinton’s re-election campaign against Republican Bob Dole, the Chinese Red Army (via fundraiser Johnny Chung) donated $300,000 to the Clinton campaign. After Clinton won, his administration quietly approved the export of key technology that aided China’s ballistic missile program.

Despite scoops by the Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, Washington Post, The Washington Times that detailed connections between Chinese contributions and espionage efforts, as well as exhaustive Congressional hearings the Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, NBC) all but buried the Clinton-Chinese fundraising scandal.  

And even when they did cover the scandal, anchors and reporters were dismissive. The late ABC World News Tonight anchor Peter Jennings, on his April 10, 1997 show, thought the investigation into the scandal wasn’t worth the effort: “When we come back, two investigations of fundraising abuse, two of them on Capitol Hill. Is it a waste of time and money?”

When the late-Senator Fred Thompson’s Governmental Affairs Committee took up the matter in the summer of 1997, ABC correspondent Linda Douglass was quick to claim there was nothing to the investigation: “Senator [Fred] Thompson is clearly tired of taking a beating from the Democrats, who every single day point out the fact that he’s failed to prove there is any Chinese plot in connection with the Democratic presidential campaign.”

On June 17, 1997 then Today co-anchor Katie Couric absurdly asked The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward “Are members of the media, do you think, Bob, too scandal-obsessed, looking for something at every corner?”

And while today the liberal media is playing up the sinister KGB past of Vladimir Putin, back then they were offended by any labeling of China as communist or “red.” On the April 4, 1997 CBS Evening News, reporter Phil Jones huffed: “Republicans call this money ‘a direct slap at those brave young Americans who spilled their blood defending freedom.’ China is referred to as ‘Red China.’ Why not just call it ‘China’? Why ‘Red China’?”

The following are some of the major discoveries from that era and how they were or were not covered: 

China’s Army Funds the Democrats.

On April 4, 1999 the Asian fundraising scandal culminated in a Los Angeles Times report: Johnny Chung told Justice Dept. investigators that the chief of Chinese military intelligence gave him $300,000 to donate to the Clinton campaign. None of the broadcast networks touched this bombshell until Chung appeared before Congress on May 11, but even then the ABC and NBC morning shows and the CBS Evening News ignored him.

China Acquires U.S. Missile Technology.

Beginning in April 1998, The New York Times reported the Chinese government had been given technological expertise that “significantly advanced Beijing’s ballistic missile program,” and the head of one of the offending defense contractors was the largest individual contributor to Democrats in 1996. The number of evening news reports on this story since April 1998? ABC: 7. CBS: 3. NBC: 2. ABC outnumbered these 12 pieces in a 24-hour period highlighting their Monica Lewinsky interview.

China Acquires U.S. Warhead Technology.

One year after that discovery, The New York Times found that the Chinese government had stolen technology from U.S. nuclear labs that would help them miniaturize their nuclear warheads. In the first ten days the Big Three aired only 11 evening stories and six morning stories, then dropped the issue. The networks have since ignored several significant revelations and conducted only one morning show interview.

Clinton’s Denials Exposed.

When pressed by print reports about whether he knew Chinese espionage was occurring on his watch, President Clinton claimed in two press conferences that he was told nothing about espionage occurring during his term. When new print reports revealed him to be lying, the networks again refused to give viewers the evidence.

The CIA Implanted Microphones Into The Skin Of CATS

The CIA tried to turn a CAT into a cyborg spy by implanting it with a microphone and antenna

The CIA Implanted Microphones Into The Skin Of CATS

The CIA once implanted microphones into a cat in a bizarre attempt to spy on Soviet Russia.

The cat had a microphone, antenna and battery pack surgically embedded into its skin so the feline could act as a covert recording device.

Recently declassified documents show how the scientists responsible for the cruel research were praised by spy chiefs for their ‘pioneering’ work.

Acoustic Kitty

The CIA once implanted microphones into a cat in a bizarre attempt to spy on Soviet Russia. Declassified documents reveal that the work was praised by CIA chiefs as a ‘remarkable scientific achievement’

The strange eavesdropping technique, though never used in the field, resurfaced this week when WikiLeaks tweeted a link to declassified CIA memos, first released in 2001.

The research was dubbed ‘Project Acoustic Kitty’ and cost $13 million (£10 million) over its five-year development in the 1960s.

The cat’s tail was used as an antenna with a wire travelling all the way up its spine to a microphone in the animal’s ear.

The equipment’s battery pack was sewn into the cat’s chest.

Victor Marchetti, a former CIA officer, told The Telegraph that year of the gruesome creation.

He said: ‘They slit the cat open, put batteries in him, wired him up’.

‘They made a monstrosity. They tested him and tested him.

‘They found he would walk off the job when he got hungry, so they put another wire in to override that,’ he added.

The final 1967 report on the project concluded it was non-practical, signalling the end of the research.

But the memo hailed the ‘remarkable scientific achievement’ reached by the American spy agency.

‘The work done on this problem over the years reflects great credit on the personnel who guided it,’ the document concluded.


The cats had microphones, antennae and battery packs surgically embedded into their skin so the felines could act as covert recording devices.

The Terrifying True Scale Of Nuclear Bombs

The True Scale of Nuclear Bombs Is Totally Frightening

The True Scale Of Nuclear Bombs

Nuclear bombs are already scary enough, but when you dig deeper and find out how powerful the weapons truly are, they get even more terrifying. The weapons we’ve built after the first atomic bombs are so strong that you can basically use Hiroshima as a unit of measurement. The largest nuclear explosion in human history, the Tsar Bomba, detonated with a force of 50 megatons or the power of 3,333 Hiroshimas.

The Russians had another bomb planned that would have been double the force of the Tsar Bomba at 100 megatons (and 6,666 times the force of Hiroshima) but luckily they never tested it. I mean, the Tsar Bomba was already as scarily powerful as it can get, since it almost destroyed the plane that dropped it and shattered windows as far as Norway and Finland. (The bomb was tested at Novaya Zemlya in Northern Russia).

Even something like the B83 bomb (which is the largest nuke in the US arsenal) explodes with a mushroom cloud taller than where commercial airlines fly. The true scale of nuclear weapons is really something, man. Learn more about it with this video by Real Life Lore, which also shows what kind of damage these nukes would do if they were dropped on New York City.

Nuclear weapons have come a long way and come in all types of different sizes. Some are relatively small while others are enormous, so big they boggle the mind at what they can be capable of. This video analyzes the sizes and impacts of various different nuclear devices, the history of nuclear weapons and what countries in the world are in possession of such devices.

Fact-Sheet On Syria’s White Helmets

 Political  Comments Off on Fact-Sheet On Syria’s White Helmets
Apr 132017
 

Who are the White Helmets? This is a question that everyone should be asking themselves.

Fact-Sheet On Syria’s White Helmets

The White Helmets – here are a few facts that you need to know. Share this with your family and friends who rely on the Western Mainstream Media:

 
• The White Helmets, also called Syria Civil Defence, are not who they claim to be. The group is not Syrian; it was created with USA/UK funding under the supervision of a British military contractor in 2013 in Turkey.

• The name “Syria Civil Defence” was stolen from the legitimate Syrian organization of the same name. The authentic Syria Civil Defence was founded in 1953 and is a founding member of the International Civil Defense Organization (1958).

• The name “White Helmets” was inappropriately taken from the legitimate Argentinian relief organization Cascos Blancos / White Helmets. In 2014, Cascos Blancos / White Helmets was honored at the United Nations for 20 years of international humanitarian assistance.

• The NATO White Helmets are primarily a media campaign to support the ‘regime change’ goals of the USA and allies. After being founded by security contractor James LeMesurier, the group was “branded” as the White Helmets in 2014 by a marketing company called “The Syria Campaign” managed out of New York by non-Syrians such as Anna Nolan. “The Syria Campaign” was itself “incubated” by another marketing company named “Purpose”.

• The White Helmets claim to be “neutral, impartial and humanitarian” and to “serve all the people of Syria” is untrue. In reality, they only work in areas controlled by the violent opposition, primarily terrorists associated with Nusra/AlQaeda (recently renamed Jabhat Fath al Sham).

• The White Helmets claim to be unarmed is untrue. There are photos which show their members carrying arms and celebrating Nusra/AlQaeda military victories.

• The White Helmets claim to be apolitical and non-aligned is untrue. In reality they actively promote and lobby for US/NATO intervention in violation of the norms of authentic humanitarian work.

• The Right Livelihood description that “Syria Civil Defence” saved over 60,000 people and “support in the provision of medical services to nearly 7 million people” is untrue. In reality the zones controlled by terrorists in Syria have few civilians remaining. That is why we see “cat” video/media stunts featuring the White Helmets.

• The NATO White Helmets actually undermine and detract from the work of authentic organizations such as the REAL Syria Civil Defence and Syrian Arab Red Crescent.

• The recent Netflix movie about the White Helmets is not a documentary; it is a self promotional advertisement. The directors never set foot in Syria. The Syrian video, real or staged, was provided by the White Helmets themselves. From the beginning scenes showing a White Helmet actor telling his little boy not to give mommy a hard time until the end, the video is contrived and manipulative. The video was produced by a commercial marketing company Violet Films/Ultra Violet Consulting which advertises its services as “social media management”, “crowd building” and “campaign implementation”.

Rich Lowry documents the collusion between Russia and Obama

The Collusion Between Russia and Obama

What Rich Lowry has done here is put it down in a page and a half in almost chronological order, in as simple and understandable a way as possible.

From Rush Limbaugh:

Rich Lowry has done a great piece of work here at National Review. “Turns Out Obama Was the Real Russian Stooge”. All of this that Lowry writes about is known and has been known, but it was known and reported on, discussed in piecemeal fashion. What Rich has done here is put it down in a page and a half in almost chronological order, in as simple and understandable a way as possible. And he has a very clever beginning of the piece.

Rich Lowry“The circumstantial evidence is mounting that the Kremlin succeeded in infiltrating the US government at the highest levels.” Now, the hoi polloi and the great unwashed reading that are obviously going to think that Lowry is talking about the Russians colluding with Trump to beat Hillary.

“The circumstantial evidence is mounting that the Kremlin succeeded in infiltrating the US government at the highest levels. How else to explain a newly elected president looking the other way after an act of Russian aggression? Agreeing to a farcically one-sided nuclear deal? Mercilessly mocking the idea that Russia represents our foremost geo-political foe?”

Let me take each one of these. How else to explain a newly elected president looking the other way after an act of Russian aggression. That’s Obama and Crimea. That’s Obama and Ukraine. And that’s Assad. At every step of the way, when Russia, when Putin commits an act of aggression, Obama said (imitating Obama), “You better cut it out. You better stop doing it,” and with Syria he drew a red line and dared Assad to cross it. Assad crossed the red line; Putin kept acting aggressive. Nothing was done to stop it.

Agreeing to a farcically one-sided nuclear deal, that’s Iran. Agreeing that the region’s number one terror state will be permitted to develop nuclear power under terms of an agreement with the American president, that’s Obama. That is not Trump. And mercilessly mocking the idea that Russia represented our foremost geopolitical foe, that’s the presidential campaign of 2012 when Mitt Romney was doing everything he could to convince people that Russia was a foremost enemy, and it was Obama and his team mocking Romney for seeing a communist behind every rock, making a mountain out of a molehill and being stereotypical in his foreign policy.

It was Obama at every stage of the way aiding and abetting and facilitating Putin and the Russians. But we’re not through. How else to explain a newly elected president “accommodating the illicit nuclear ambitions of a Russian ally?” Of a president, an American president “welcoming a Russian foothold in the Middle East?” Hello, Syria. Hello, Iran.

How about an American president “refusing to provide arms to a sovereign country invaded by Russia?” Hello, Ukraine. An American president “diminishing our defenses and pursuing a Moscow-friendly policy of hostility to fossil fuels?” That would be Obama and climate change, which benefits Putin and the Russians. All of these items, of course, refer to things said or done by Barack Hussein Obama, not by Donald Trump.

“To take them in order: He re-set with Russia shortly after its clash with Georgia in 2008. He concluded the New START agreement with Moscow that reduced our nuclear forces but not theirs. When candidate Mitt Romney warned about Russia in the 2012 campaign, Obama rejected him as a Cold War relic.

“The president then went on to forge an agreement with Russia’s ally Iran to allow it to preserve its nuclear program. During the red-line fiasco, he eagerly grasped a lifeline from Russia at the price of accepting its intervention in Syria. He never budged on giving Ukraine ‘lethal’ weapons to defend itself from Russian attack,” which we had sworn by treaty to do. We were the ones that made Ukraine give up its military in exchange for our defending them against such aggression.

The Collusion Between Russia and ObamaThen when the aggression happened and they had no weaponry to defend themselves, we sided with the aggressor, Russia. All of this, Barack Obama. Not a single instance of this collusion can be laid to Donald Trump because he was not even running for president when this stuff happened. The evidence of Kremlin, Moscow, and Washington collusion is with Obama and Putin. “Finally, Obama cut US defense spending and cracked down on fossil fuels — a policy that Russia welcomes, since its economy is dependent on high oil prices.”

So it is abundantly clear that if anybody in our country was working with Russia to their benefit, it was Barack Obama and the Democrat Party. It was not Donald Trump. All of this business about Russia and Trump colluding to deny the election, it would have made every bit of sense in the world for Putin to want Hillary Clinton to win to continue just this kind of deference.

With this evidence and using common sense guided by intelligence, there is no way Putin would want to deal with some newcomer like Trump who was talking tough. America first and all this sort of stuff. He would much rather prefer Hillary Clinton, guaranteed to continue the same appeasement policies of Barack Obama as she was promising to do.
