WaPo Anon Source at CIA: Putin Gave Direct Orders to Help Elect Donald Trump
The_Real_Fly, Zero Hedge, Jun 23 2017

I do not mean to be flippant when dismissing the never-ending barrage of anonymous sources inside the CIA who leak to the WaPo. I’m sure there are good agents who are protecting Pindosis from foreign meddlers. But the optics of these leaks is terrible. Truth is, I sometimes think they’re doing this to make the mainstream media look even worse, to lend an air of bias to the reporting rooms to dissuade Pindosis from trusting them. After all, WaPo, MSNBC, CNN and the NYT are in the business of appealing to all people, not just the one’s who agree with them. Do they realize the irreversible damage they’re inflicting upon their organizations by publishing suspicious anonymous leaks designed to take down a democratically elected President? If Russia truly wanted to hurt Pindostan, they could not do more than what the main stream media is doing now, peddling stories that are infuriating half the country.

WaPo is reporting today that Vladimir Putin himself directed his agents to help elect Donald Trump.

Early last August, an envelope with extraordinary handling restrictions arrived at the White House. Sent by courier from the CIA, it carried “eyes only” instructions that its contents be shown to just four people: Pres Obama and three senior aides. The White House debated various options to punish Russia, but facing obstacles and potential risks, it ultimately failed to exact a heavy toll on the Kremlin for its election interference. Inside was an intelligence bombshell, a report drawn from sourcing deep inside the Russian government that detailed Pres Putin’s direct involvement in a cyber campaign to disrupt and discredit the Pindosi presidential race. But it went further. The intelligence captured Putin’s specific instructions on the operation’s audacious objectives: defeat or at least damage Hillary Clinton and help elect Donald Trump. At that point, the outlines of the Russian assault on the Pindo election were increasingly apparent. Hackers with ties to Russian intelligence services had been rummaging through Demagog Party computer networks, as well as some Thug systems, for more than a year. In July, the FBI had opened an investigation of contacts between Russian officials and Trump associates. And on Jul 22, nearly 20,000 emails stolen from the DNC were dumped online by WikiLeaks.

I find it interesting how there’s no mention of John Podesta’s emails in this report. After all, that’s what we’re talking about, right? The DNC leaks came during the primaries and were a minor blip in the Wikileaks/DNC election narrative. The crux of the Russian hacking charges begins and ends with the embarrassing collusion revealed in the Podesta emails, tying the main stream media to Clinton. One of the reporters of the WaPo article, Greg Miller, called the Russian hack ‘the crime of the century.’ I suppose he is implying the theft of the Presidency from Hillary Clinton. They cannot get over it.

If Obama knew that Putin himself was hacking John Podesta’s email box and passing the info to Wikileaks, who has flatly denied the notion that Russia was their source, why didn’t he do anything about it? Is it possible that they thought Hillary was going to win and they didn’t want to rock the boat, causing Wikileaks to reveal even more damaging and embarssing emails? That’s exactly what the WaPo reporter says in the clip below, but he doesn’t realize he said it.

WaPo also revealed that Obama planted ‘digital bombs’ in Russian infrastructure, to be used at the behest of Trump. If true, why is the WaPo publishing this information? This goes against our national security interests and tips off the Russians to what we’re doing behind the scenes.

Obama also approved a previously undisclosed covert measure that authorized planting cyber-weapons in Russia’s infrastructure, the digital equivalent of bombs that could be detonated if Pindostan found itself in an escalating exchange with Moscow. The project, which Obama approved in a covert-action finding, was still in its planning stages when Obama left office. It would be up to Pres Trump to decide whether to use the capability.

Just in case you’re wondering why the media keeps obsessing over Russian hacking claims that have yet to be backed up by a shred of evidence, Greg Miller from WaPo will blue pill you on it. You’re feeling vulnerable and unsure about our sacred democracy.

We cannot let the Russians get away with this. Putin himself is a devil and wanted to see the first legit female candidate for POTUS defeated, because he’s obviously mansplaining himself to the world and not tolerant of women’s rights.

Senate Judiciary Committee Opens Probe Into Loretta Lynch

As more Demagogs have started to question why former AG Loretta Lynch was never investigated for obstruction following a suspicious meeting with former Pres Clinton 42, it appears the Senate Judiciary Committee has finally decided to act. The Wash Times reported Friday that the committee has launched a formal investigation into Lynch’s attempts to shape the FBI’s probe into Hillary Clinton, and whether she mishandled classified information on her private email server. According to the paper, the investigation has bipartisan support.

Sen Charles Grassley, chairman of the committee, said the investigation is bipartisan. The letter to Ms Lynch is signed by ranking Demagog Sen Dianne Feinstein and also by Sens Lindsey Graham and Sheldon Whitehouse, the chairman and ranking member of the key investigative subcommittee. Letters also went to Clinton campaign staffer Amanda Renteria and Leonard Benardo and Gail Scovell at the Open Society Foundations. Mr Benardo was reportedly on an email chain from the then-head of the DNC suggesting Ms Lynch had given assurances to Ms Renteria, the campaign staffer, that the Clinton probe wouldn’t “go too far.”

During testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, former FBI Director James Comey said his suspicions about Lynch’s cozy relationship with the Clintons prompted him to unilaterally announce the close of the Clinton investigation last summer. According to Comey, Lynch leaned on him to soften his language when discussing the investigation, asking him to refer to the probe as a “matter,” mirror language used by the campaign, instead of as “an investigation.” Comey also said the suspicious meeting between Clinton and Lynch raised questions about her objectivity that could’ve compromised the bureau’s integrity.

Q: Then you made a comment earlier about the AG, the previous AG, asking you about the investigation on the Clinton e-mails saying you were asked to not call it an investigation anymore. But call it a matter. You said that confused you. You can give us additional details on that?
A: Well, it concerned me because we were at the point where we refused to confirm the existence as we typically do of an investigation for months, and was getting to a place where that looked silly because the campaigns we’re talking about interacting with the FBI in the course of our work. The Clinton campaign at the time was using all kinds of euphemisms, security matters, things like that for what was going on. We were getting to a place where the AG and I were both going to testify and talk publicly about it. I wanted to know was she going to authorize us to confirm we have an investigation? She said yes, don’t call it that, call it a matter. I said, why would I do that? She said, just call it a matter. You look back in hindsight, if I looked back and said this isn’t a hill worth dying on, so I just said the press is going to completely ignore it. That’s what happened when I said we opened a matter. They all reported the FBI has an investigation open. So that concerned me, because that language tracked the way the campaign was talking about the FBI’s work and that’s concerning.
Q: You gained the impression that the campaign was somehow using the same language as the FBI because you were handed the campaign language?
A: I don’t know whether it was intentional or not, but it gave the impression that the AG was looking to align the way we talked about our work with the way it was describing that. It was inaccurate. We had an investigation open for the FBI. We had an investigation open at the time. That gave me a queasy feeling.

So who was obstructing or trying to interfere there?

Comey said that this troubled him greatly and convinced him, “I have to step away from the department if we’re too close this case credibly.”

As Newt Gingrich noted earlier this week even Dianne Feinstein, the ranking Demagog on the Judiciary Committee, had begun to wonder aloud why Lynch was being investigated. Gingrich said the absence of an investigation is a sign of Thug weakness.

What’s amazing to me about the Thug passivity here is that Sen Dianne Feinstein, the ranking Demagog on the intelligence committee, said last week after Comey’s testimony, “You know, we really have to look into exactly what’s going on with Loretta Lynch and with President Obama.” Now I was waiting for one of the intel chairmen in the House and Senate to get up and say they’re opening a new investigation into exactly what Loretta lynch said to Comey.

Now we wait to see if the House and, more importantly, the DoJ follow suit.

Angry Dems Turn On Obama, Pelosi, Schumer: “Talk Less About Russia”
Tyler Durden, Zero Hedge, Jun 24 2017

It’s been a rough week for the legacy of the Obama administration. Yesterday, the Senate Judiciary Committee launched a Democrat-endorsed probe into former AG Loretta Lynch’s conduct during the campaign, when it’s widely believed she colluded with the Clinton’s to “soften” the FBI’s probe into Hillary’s mishandling of classified information. Earlier, sure-thing Demagog neophyte Jon Ossoff lost a special election in Georgia that he was supposedly guaranteed to win, leading Pindostan’s least—preferred party of overly brazen corporatists to an embarrassing 5-0 defeat, and stoking calls for Nancy Pelosi, the Dem’s longtime leader in Congress, to step aside. And as if all that wasn’t enough, revelations that Russian hackers targeted voting systems in 21 states and the Obama administration did nothing about it have inspired the president’s fellow Demagogs to turn on their once-revered leader. As the Hill reports, Demagogs are criticizing no-drama Obama for being too cautious with his disclosures about “the Russia problem” in the run-up to the 2016 election, claiming that he shouldn’t have hesitated to inform the public about the allegations:

The Obama administration is under fresh scrutiny for its response to Russian meddling in the election after new details emerged this week about how the White House weighed its actions against the 2016 political environment. Then-Pres Obama was too cautious in the months leading up to the election, frustrated Demagog congress critturs and strategists say. Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.), a member of the House Intelligence Committee who co-chairs the Democratic Steering and Policy Committee, said: “It was inadequate. I think they could have done a better job informing the Pindop sheeple of the extent of the attack.”

Meanwhile, Demagog Tim Ryan, who recently challenged Pelosi for leadership of the party, is leading a small group of Congressional Demagogs in criticizing Chuck Schumer, Pelosi and the rest of the Demagog leadership’s irrational focus on the Russia investigations. Ryan believes the focus on making the Dems appear out of touch to working stiffs who care more about economic issues than the Trump witch-hunt, as the Hill reports. Ryan’s attempt to lead from behind comes as some of his peers push for the creation of a 9/11-style Commission to launch what would be the fourth investigation into the Trump campaign. Even though the contradiction here is obvious, in that Demagogs are complaining that the party is too focused on Russia, while criticizing Obama for not releasing more scurrilous details about alleged interference, at least Ryan recognizes that the focus on Russia will hurt the Dems where it counts: In next year’s midterms. Rep Tim Ryan told MSNBC Thursday:

We can’t just talk about Russia, because people back in Ohio aren’t really talking that much about Russia, about Putin, about Michael Flynn. They’re trying to figure out how they’re going to make the mortgage payment, how they’re going to pay for their kids to go to college, what their energy bill looks like. And if we don’t talk more about their interest than we do about how we’re so angry with Donald Trump and everything that’s going on, then we’re never going to be able to win elections.

Turning back to Obama, the president’s motives in withholding the information definitely leave room for speculation. Was he worried that the public would interpret the disclosure as transparent fearmongering intended to benefit the Clinton campaign, or maybe he thought it would make the Demagogs and Clinton look ineffectual in the face of a problem that couldn’t be solved with a couple of well-timed drone strikes? For what it’s worth, Jeh Johnson says Obama withheld the information because he didn’t want to play into Trump’s claims that the election was being “rigged.”

Jeh Johnson on Wednesday told the critturs that the White House held back on responding to Russia because it didn’t want to play into fears, propagated by then-candidate Trump, that the election would be “rigged.” Johnson said: “One of the candidates, as you’ll recall, was predicting that the election was going to be rigged in some way, and so we were concerned that by making the statement, we might in and of itself be challenging the integrity of the election process itself.” Trump had repeatedly claimed that the outcome of the election would be “rigged” against him, alleging widespread voter fraud and inaccurate polling. He provided no evidence to back up his claims, but critics feared that his rhetoric could undermine public trust in the outcome of the election.

In any event, Obama’s decision to withhold the information has made the Demagogs look weak, desperate and disorganized, and now they’re rightfully worried that the administration’s countermeasures, merely kicking out a few dozen diplomats, have helped them lose what little credibility they still had in the eyes of the public. Meanwhile, Pres Trump has a few questions of his own;

Some Republicans argue the Obama administration only started to take the Russia threat seriously after Pres Trump had won the election. Trump has called the influence operation a “hoax” and dismissed the various inquiries into Russian interference in the election, which include looking for possible collusion between his campaign and Moscow, as a “witch hunt.” The Obama administration announced on Oct 7 that the theft and release of the DNC emails was part of a widespread campaign “intended to interfere with the election process.”

So what’s next for the Demagogs? Obama, who has already pivoted from politician to social-media celebrity, will probably continue to chime in every now and then from the peanut gallery. Meanwhile, we wait to see if the DoJ or any other interested parties piggyback on the Senate’s investigation into Lynch’s blatant attempt at obstruction, and wonder: Could this be the controversy that leads to the unraveling of the modern Demagog Party? On Thursday, Pres Trump couldn’t resist taking a shot at his predecessor on Twitter:
