Looking at the Real Russian Collusion Story

Most of this information is already known, but I thought I'd repost it for anyone who hasn't been paying close attention to the ridiculous narrative that Trump colluded with Vlad to win the election. Congress has stated that there is no evidence of wrongdoing, but the Russia Gaters will not admit that.

More evidence of Clinton election meddling, as calls for investigation grow louder

As secretary of State, Hillary Clinton worked with Russian leaders, including Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and then-President Dmitri Medvedev, to create U.S. technology partnerships with Moscow’s version of Silicon Valley, a sprawling high-tech campus known as Skolkovo.

Clinton’s handprint was everywhere on the 2009-2010 project, the tip of a diplomatic spear to reboot U.S.-Russian relations after years of hostility prompted by Vladimir Putin’s military action against the former Soviet republic and now U.S. ally Georgia.

A donor to the Clinton Foundation, Russian oligarch Viktor Vekselberg, led the Russian side of the effort, and several American donors to the Clinton charity got involved. Clinton’s State Department facilitated U.S. companies working with the Russian project, and she personally invited Medvedev to visit Silicon Valley.

The collaboration occurred at the exact same time Bill Clinton made his now infamous trip to Russia to pick up a jaw-dropping $500,000 check for a single speech.

The former president’s trip secretly raised eyebrows inside his wife’s State Department, internal emails show.

That’s because he asked permission to meet Vekselberg, the head of Skolkovo, and Arkady Dvorkovich, a senior official of Rosatom, the Russian nuclear giant seeking State’s permission to buy Uranium One, a Canadian company with massive U.S. uranium reserves.

Bill was refused permission to meet Vekselberg so he met with Vlad instead at his home.

That’s because he asked permission to meet Vekselberg, the head of Skolkovo, and Arkady Dvorkovich, a senior official of Rosatom, the Russian nuclear giant seeking State’s permission to buy Uranium One, a Canadian company with massive U.S. uranium reserves.

Years later, intelligence documents show, both the Skolkovo and Uranium One projects raised serious security concerns.

In 2013, the U.S. military’s leading intelligence think tank in Europe sounded alarm that the Skolkovo project might be a front for economic and military espionage.

“Skolkovo is an ambitious enterprise, aiming to promote technology transfer generally, by inbound direct investment, and occasionally, through selected acquisitions. As such, Skolkovo is arguably an overt alternative to clandestine industrial espionage — with the additional distinction that it can achieve such a transfer on a much larger scale and more efficiently,” EUCOM’s intelligence bulletin wrote in 2013.

“Implicit in Russia’s development of Skolkovo is a critical question — a question that Russia may be asking itself — why bother spying on foreign companies and government laboratories if they will voluntarily hand over all the expertise Russia seeks?”

The FBI had equal concern about Rosatom’s acquisition of Uranium One. An informer named William Douglas Campbell had gotten inside the Russian nuclear giant in 2009 and gathered evidence that Rosatom’s agents in the United States were engaged in a racketeering scheme involving kickbacks, extortion and bribery.

Campbell also obtained written evidence that Putin wanted to buy Uranium One as part of a strategy to obtain monopolistic domination of the global uranium markets, including leverage over the U.S.

Campbell also warned that a major in-kind donor to the Clinton Global Initiative was simultaneously working for Rosatom while the decision for U.S. approval was pending before Hillary Clinton’s department. Ultimately, her department and the Obama administration approved the transaction.

The evidence shows the Clintons financially benefited from Russia — personally and inside their charity — at the same time they were involved in U.S. government actions that rewarded Moscow and increased U.S. security risks.

Now we get to when Hillary and the DNC hired Fusion GPS to gather political opposition research on Trump in an attempt to make it seem like he had connections with people in Russia who would help him win the election.

Simpson then hired retired British intelligence operative Christopher Steele — whom the FBI learned was “desperate” to defeat Trump — to write an unverified dossier suggesting that Trump’s campaign was colluding with Russia to hijack the election.

Simpson, Steele and Perkins Coie all walked Trump-Russia related allegations into the FBI the summer before the election, prompting agents who openly disliked Trump to launch a counterintelligence probe of the GOP nominee shortly before Election Day.

Simpson and Steele also went to the news media to air the allegations in what senior Justice Department official Bruce Ohr would later write was a “Hail Mary” effort to influence the election.

Ohr’s notes show that Steele’s main source of uncorroborated allegationsagainst Trump came from an ex-Russian intelligence officer. “Much of the collection about the Trump campaign ties to Russia comes from a former Russian intelligence officer (? not entirely clear) who lives in the U.S.,” Ohr scribbled.

Steele’s dossier also relied on information from a Belarus-born Russian businessman, according to numerous reports and a book on the Russia scandal.

Steele and Simpson had Russian-tied business connections, too, while they formulated the dossier.

Steele worked for the lawyers for Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska and tried to leverage those connections to help the FBI get evidence from the Russian aluminum magnate against Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

Likewise, Simpson worked in 2016 for the Russian company Prevezon — which was trying to escape U.S. government penalties — and one of its Russian lawyers, Natalia Veselnitskaya. In sworn testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Simpson admitted he dined with Veselnitskaya both the night before and the night after her infamous meeting with Donald Trump Jr. at Trump Tower in June 2016.

Whatever the case, there’s little doubt the main instigators of the Clinton-inspired allegations against Trump got information from Russians and were consorting with them during the political opposition project.
....
There is clear evidence now that shows Hillary Clinton’s family and charity profited from Moscow and simultaneously facilitated official government actions benefiting Russia that have raised security concerns.

And there’s irrefutable evidence that her opposition research effort on Trump — one that inspired an FBI probe — was carried out by people who got information from Russia and were consorting with Russians.

It would seem those questions deserve at least some of the scrutiny afforded the Trump-Russia collusion inquiry that is now two-plus years old.

This video talks about all the people who had connections with Russia. Fusion GPS, Christopher Steele, an ex Russian intelligence agent and others. I haven't watched all of it yet so not sure how much more information it shows

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss the real case for Russia collusion before and during the 2016 US Presidential election, not against Donald Trump, but the Clinton’s and the Democrat Party.

Narrative A Folks believe that Trump colluded with Vlad to win the election even with these facts in front of them:

Narrative A folks won’t have any difficulty tossing aside the fact that McCabe was fired as deputy FBI director for violating agency policy in leaking unauthorized information to the news media. He then allegedly violated the law in lying about it to federal investigators on four occasions, including three times while under oath.

Indeed, Narrative A people have no difficulty at all brushing aside serious questions posed by Narrative B people. McCabe is a likely liar and perjurer? Doesn’t matter. Peter Strzok, head of the FBI’s counterespionage section, demonstrated his anti-Trump animus in tweets and emails to Justice official Lisa Page? Irrelevant. Christopher Steele’s dossier of dirt on Trump, including an allegation that the Russians were seeking to blackmail and bribe him, was compiled by a man who had demonstrated to a Justice Department official that he was “desperate that Donald Trump not get elected and…passionate about him not being president”? Not important. The dossier was paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic Party? Immaterial. Nothing in the dossier was ever substantiated? So what?

The article is about the how McCabe and his buddies at the FBI tried to get Trump removed from office by the 25th amendment. Just a friendly coup attempt on the sitting president. Or sedition. But why Trump hasn't done anything about this is frying my brain. Could it be because of how involved Obama was in the FBI investigation into Hillary's emails and all of the shenanigans that the FBI pulled and that it's an unwritten rule that presidents don't bring charges against presidents? Or is it that Q is right and Trump is quietly gathering evidence before he acts? Time will tell....

It might cause a pussy hat riot if Trump were to bring it all front and center while Mueller is still chugging along like the little engine that could, bringing down all these people for hard to find crimes from years and years ago, that, of course have nothing to do with Trump (or any on his team) colluding.

I mean, it would certainly tire out the actual person who personally delivered uranium samples to the Kremlin to have to defend himself, while simultaneously digging into closets, and exposing petrified skeletons, dontcha know?

Hopefully, Q is right, otherwise, a big fat nothing will be done about it at all.

“You can see evidence in plain sight on the issue of collusion, pretty compelling evidence,” Schiff said, adding, “There is a difference between seeing evidence of collusion and being able to prove a criminal conspiracy beyond a reasonable doubt.”

Schiff said special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on potential Russian government meddling in the 2016 election might not be the final word on the matter.

“We may also need to see the evidence behind that report,” he said.

Whatever dude. Let's keep this shit farce going on while not going after Trump for the things that he actually is doing. The national emergency false flag is an attempt to get more power for the executive office that is already more powerful than what the constitution allows. Meanwhile, the country's wealth inequality continues to skyrocket while thousands and thousands of people are losing their jobs to corporate greed. Make sure you and the dems don't address this national emergency as well as the many others.

@snoopydawg
I think it's so we won't pay attention to what we and fckng Israel (srsly wtf?) are doing in Venezuela.

It's our squirrel, and the dems are playing their feigned outrage well, while going along with an illegal coup we constructed.

Hell, come to think of it, that's probably why a farce of an investigation by Mueller is still dragging on. It certainly has the full attention of the Dembots, just like the wall. Like a shell game. We lose every time.

The GOP did many things behind the scenes right after his election and this is still going on like you said. No one is talking about the upcoming Venezuelan coup on many websites that lean left, nor about how many car companies are laying off thousands of people at one time. Nor about the yellow vests in France or the protests in Haiti because they are being tired of being screwed by the USA puppets.

I'm thinking that Trump's national emergency isn't just about the wall. We'll see if I'm right about this soon I think.

Here's another excellent article from Firke who keeps belting them out.
