Hillary's undeclared $400,000 + gift from Bill Browder

What am I gonna do when HRC, Podestas, Bubba, Hussein, Waters, Pelosi depart the scene, voluntarily or involuntarily? Where will the laughs come from when they're gone. I know, I know: it only hurts when I laugh--which ain't as often when my medication wears off.

This paean of apostate accounting of the dastardly Treasonous Trump and Pernicious Putin diabolical duo in seeking to ease world tensions has rightfully worked up the Dimocrats into apoplectic agitation aimed at assembling the assholes who still believe their fairy tales into expurgating No. 45 from our selective memories. (Pretty nice run-on sentence, eh?)

Yes, I did watch the Dastardly Duo's press conference waiting for Defcon 1 to occur. Nope. Peaches and cream--or if you like, caviar and blintzes. Smiles. Handshakes. Even a bit of ball playing. But the gall, absolute bile of these two having secret meetings in the absence of our disappearing journalistic community! What nerve. How are the MSM gonna make up any credible stories about the Helsinki Summit? Don't worry about; they will. Of course all sources will be anonymous. I thought that the concluding Q&A was more informative than expected and even revived in me a faint feeling of hope (gasp).

For one thing, obviously opaque to the Mediots, was the possibility of extenuation of the nuclear arms limitation treaty, also known as the 2010 New Start Agreement.

But the press conference may have contained one ray of light. In a little-noticed remark, Putin said he gave Trump “a note with a number of specific suggestions” about disarmament. “This includes the extension of the Strategic Offensive Arms Limitation Treaty.”

By this, he meant the 2010 New Start agreement limiting the two countries to 1550 warheads each. It expires in 2021 but has the option of being extended another five years. According to nuclear expert Joe Cirincione, “a simple exchange of diplomatic notes between the parties” could do it.

Russia appears to have taken the first step. It’s unclear how Trump responded to Putin but at the press conference he said “in terms of stopping [nuclear proliferation], we have to do it — ultimately, that’s probably the most important thing that we can be working on.”

According to a report by nuclear experts from Russia and the EU in April, extending the New Start agreement is important. It is the only remaining arms agreement between the two powers that involves direct inspections of each other’s weapons. Russia and the US hold 92 per cent of the world’s nukes.

Will you read about it in NYT? Nope. They, like Hussein, want more and better nukes, a stance from which Trump now appears to be pulling back.

Omitting stuff favorable to Trump is de riguer with the MSM. Omitting stuff unfavorable to the Wicked Witch of Goldman Sachs is also a subject not to be discussed. Well, it seems that Vlad dropped a big bomb on HRC's image in the very last portion of the public session (Q&A)--one which was conspicuously avoided by the MSM.

I saw the Q&A and the translation was $400,000,000. I speak no Russian so perhaps the translation was incorrect, but I will link a source which agrees with that. First, a hat tip to Pluto's Republic for retrieving the relevant passage:

Vladimir Putin made a bombshell claim during Monday's joint press conference with President Trump in Helsinki, Finland, when the Russian President said some $400 million in illegally earned profits was funneled to the Clinton campaign by associates of American-born British financier Bill Browder - at one time the largest foreign portfolio investors in Russia. The scheme involved members of the U.S. intelligence community, said Putin, who he said "accompanied and guided these transactions."

Browder made billions in Russia during the 90's. In December, a Moscow court sentenced Browder in absentia to nine years in prison for tax fraud, while he was also found guilty of tax evasion in a separate 2013 case. Putin accused Browder's associates of illegally earning over than $1.5 billion without paying Russian taxes, before sending $400 million to Clinton.

After offering to allow special counsel Robert Mueller's team to come to Russia for their investigation - as long as there was a reciprocal arrangement for Russian intelligence to investigate in the U.S., Putin said this:

For instance, we can bring up Mr. Browder, in this particular case. Business associates of Mr. Browder have earned over $1.5 billion in Russia and never paid any taxes neither in Russia or the United States and yet the money escaped the country. They were transferred to the United States. They sent [a] huge amount of money, $400,000,000, as a contribution to the campaign of Hillary Clinton. Well that’s their personal case.

It might have been legal, the contribution itself but the way the money was earned was illegal. So we have solid reason to believe that some [US] intelligence officers accompanied and guided these transactions. So we have an interest in questioning them.

Here's some Browder background.

William Felix Browder (born 23 April 1964)[1] is an American-born British financier. He is the CEO and co-founder of Hermitage Capital Management, an investment fund that at one time was the largest foreign portfolio investor in Russia.[2] He gave up his U.S. citizenship in 1998 to avoid paying taxes related to foreign investment.[3] After having business in Russia for ten years, Browder was refused entry to Russia in 2005 as a threat to national security; he has said it was because he exposed corruption...

On October 21, 2017, as part of a criminal conviction for tax evasion[7], the Russian government attempted to place Browder on Interpol's arrest list. After a protest by U.S. Congressional leaders, his visa was restored the following day.[8] Russia's arrest-warrant request was rejected by Interpol on October 26, 2017.[7] While visiting Spain in May 2018, Browder was arrested on 30 May 2018 by Spanish authorities on a new Russian Interpol warrant and transferred to an undisclosed Spanish police station,[9] yet he was released two hours later, after Interpol confirmed that this was a political case

Perhaps Putin misspoke, reducing the value to a measly $400,000

However, although $400K is chump change to Nancy Pelosi and the Clintons, most of us would love a six figure gift like that. Regardless of the sum being considerably smaller, there are two salient points here.

1.

While Putin’s information has yet to be verified, his bombshell claim has been completely ignored by mainstream media who are refusing to so much as report what he said during the joint press conference. Hillary Clinton took to Twitter to lambast Trump for meeting with Putin (even though President Obama met with Putin multiple times) however she refused to answer questions asking her if Putin’s claims have any merit.

https://yournewswire.com/hillary-clinton-putin-400-million/

2. Putin challenged Müller to put up or shut up. Come to Russia with your team and observe the interrogation of the GRU members alleged to have hacked the tubez, maybe even ask questions (though the latter wasn't stated). BUT, in return, Putin would send his team to the U.S. to interview persons of interest in the Browder matter.

Right now the Swan's got a lot of muck in his feathers what with the disastrous indictment of Concord Catering (which didn't exist within the time frame of the indictment) and the associated 13 Russian trolls. The Swan's people asked for a continuance and were rebuked by the trial judge. This case will likely be dropped. If Swan's could get red-faced, then RSM III would surely get one.

Here is what the WaPo reported on the Trump-Putin Q&A--more telling is what they did not report, i.e., the charge about Clinton and Browder. Even if the amount is only $400,000, the source was likely illegal. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2018/07/16/full-text-president-trumps-news-conference-with-russias-putin/?utm_term=.32579c05f4e3

Bonus for Russiagate fans: Müller fails again.

The indictment of 12 GRU agents in holier than Swiss cheese. This is longish and geared for techies, of which I ain't one:

Evidence was found over 500 days ago relating to the Guccifer 2.0 persona that showed they had deliberately manipulated files to have Russian metadata. We know the process used to construct the documents was not due to accidental mistakes during the creation process.
The original template document that Guccifer 2.0 used has been identified. It is also the source of the presence of Warren Flood’s name, and can be found attached to one of Podesta’s emails (it has RSIDs matching with Guccifer 2.0’s first couple of documents).
The Trump opposition research, which CrowdStrike claimed was targeted at the DNC, apparently in late April 2016, isn’t what Guccifer 2.0 actually presented to reporters. It also didn’t come from the DNC, but was an attached file on one of John Podesta’s emails – not the DNC’s. This specific copy appears to have been edited by Tony Carrk shortly before it was sent to Podesta. The fact that Guccifer 2.0’s initial releases were Podesta email attachments was even conceded by a former DNC official.
It appears that Guccifer 2.0 fabricated evidence on June 15, 2016, that coincidentally dovetailed with multiple claims made by CrowdStrike executives that had been published the previous day.
...

Mueller’s indictment leaves us with the premise that a supposed GRU officer working in league with other GRU officers, acquiring Podesta’s attachments and, just three days after Julian Assange announces leaks are coming in relation to Hillary Clinton, releases deliberately tainted files that serve to pin the blame on Russians, that only really hurt Trump, that ultimately undermined leaks and that provided fabricated evidence. Evidence that, for whatever reason, supported several claims made by CrowdStrike executives published in a legacy media article the previous day.

This song is dedicated to the Swan, Killary, and other deluded morons who believe in Russiagate and the "Witch Hunt".

Thanks for this, AE. I guess, not surprisingly, your report is the first I've heard of Putin calling out Browder and, somewhat indirectly, the Clinton Machine.

A relative gave me a copy of Browder's book, Red Notice, a couple of years ago. Ever since, I've been trying to find the truth about the whole affair. At first, knowing nothing but what Browder claimed in his book, I assumed he was telling the truth. Digging around even just a little bit revealed that Mr. Browder is not quite what he claims. I'm still researching as time permits.

Julian Assange released it at the crucial time that he did because he foresaw an evidence-free indictment implicating Russia like the one Mueller just released, and he knew that meant he would have been silenced first if it did. Vault 7 holds all the secrets about how Mueller's most recent indictment was concocted. The release was a very big deal — but it is only now that it is useful to us. It lets us see the indictment for what it is. Fake pseudo-evidence befitting a fake democracy.

For the timeline of events leading up to Vault 7's release, former CIA Analyst Ray McGovern tells us exactly how it came down:

Did Sen. Warner and Comey ‘Collude’ on Russia-gate?

The U.S. was in talks for a deal with Julian Assange but then FBI Director James Comey ordered an end to negotiations after Assange offered to prove Russia was not involved in the DNC leak, as Ray McGovern explains.

Mueller's latest indictment was a Vault 7 operation, meant to cover-up the unwinding Russian Hoax.

For a step-by-step takedown of fakery in the most recent Mueller indictment, Disobedient Media has laid it out with top-level input from the VIPS experts in national security. You will want to keep this one with your reference files:

"nothing Burger" trotted out many many times over the past few days.

Seriously, it's like they keep running the same damn plays and not even realizing that Trump's been pulling a West Coast Offense for the last 3 seasons, and the Dems are still running the same 5-2 defense that they've been running since High School.

For those confused about how I suddenly seem to know things about football, this is a deliberate attempt to confuse my FBI profiler. Smile

@Azazello in the sport I participate in, and very low rates of head injury. Why? Because for the first three months in Judo they've been drilling me on protecting my head when I fall. Where you look, how to keep your head from impacting on anything.

A football coach who drilled his players like that would never win, since the nature of the game demands shock troop actions, not fighting smart. (Yes, I believe Football is a combat sport, just with really STUPID rules.)

speaking from experience of suffering one over 40 years ago and still suffering the effects from it. Latest example: not knowing that I asked the same question 4 times in 10 minutes. Or remembering the answer given each time.

That the NFL covered up the effects of a TBI for decades is a crime against humanity in my humble opinion. I only suffered one. Many players suffered multiple ones and I can't even begin to imagine what their lives are like.

@snoopydawg When I was in Iraq, however I did see the effects of TBI on people. I apologize if I came across as flippant. Just annoyed at the NFL idiots who refuse to accept that their sport is dangerous.

And yes, I take my ukemi extremely seriously.

@detroitmechworks Helmets and body armor actually magnify blast effects by compressing the abdomen forcing blood into the head and neck. Multiple VA studies have shown this. Shrapnel need not be involved but does aggravate the injury through direct force applied to the helmet.

The doctors I worked with called them brain buckets and didn't think they offered much protection when people crashed. I know that if I had been wearing one of the full faced ones with chin guards that my injuries wouldn't have been as severe and I'd probably still have teeth. No one explained how TBIs affected memory until I was in my 40's so I just thought I was dumb because I couldn't remember things. Smile

@snoopydawg The image of the "punch drunk" boxer was in common parlance even back then, but the commonality of the same pathology from other types of TBI took lots of time before knowledge disseminated. How many TBI's are too many--in my estimation, one is enough but I never played contact sports except for one season of college rugby; no financial incentive.

Helmets are better now but vary in quality and style. For instance, cycling helmets have a specific configuration specific for the type of injury expected. They won't do well in boxing or football.

@detroitmechworks

just some friendly advice and I forgot that you probably did see the effects from TBIs during your time in the sandbox. "I should have worded it as I'm hoping that you are protecting your head"

I haven't heard if the players are still suing the NFL or if they have won their case. Anyone know? The players are not only suffering from their original injuries, but they are getting worse.

PHILIP M. GIRALDI | 01.02.2018
Meet the Corrupt Billionaire Who Has Brought About a New Cold War

One has to ask why there is a crisis in US-Russia relations since Washington and Moscow have much more in common than not, to include confronting international terrorism, stabilizing Syria and other parts of the world that are in turmoil, and preventing the proliferation of nuclear weapons…

… Apart from search for a scapegoat to explain the Hillary Clinton defeat, how did it happen? Israel Shamir, a keen observer of the American-Russian relationship, and celebrated American journalist Robert Parry both think that one man deserves much of the credit for the new Cold War and that man is William Browder, a hedge fund operator who made his fortune in the corrupt 1990s world of Russian commodities trading…

… in Russia, Browder used shell companies locally and also worldwide to avoid taxes and conceal ownership, suggesting that he was likely one of many corrupt businessmen operating in what was a wild west business environment.

Browder reminds me of the Iraqi guy who swore that Saddam did indeed have WMDs and that Kuwaiti woman who said that she saw Iraqi troops throwing babies out of incubators. But she was in school in this country when that was supposedly happening.
