The real crime: Collusion between media, leakers

For a year, the big question of Russiagate has boiled down to this: Did Donald Trump’s campaign collude with the Russians in hacking the DNC?

And until last week, the answer was “no.”

As ex-CIA director Mike Morell said in March, “On the question of the Trump campaign conspiring with the Russians … there is smoke, but there is no fire, at all. … There’s no little campfire, there’s no little candle, there’s no spark.”

Well, last week, it appeared there had been a fire in Trump Tower. On June 9, 2016, Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort met with Russians – in anticipation of promised dirt on Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

While not a crime, this was a blunder. For Donald Jr. had long insisted there had been no collusion with the Russians. Caught in flagrante, he went full Pinocchio for four days

Exclusive: Obama DOJ let Russian lawyer into US before she met with Trump team | TheHill

The Russian lawyer who penetrated Donald Trump’s inner circle was initially cleared into the United States by the Justice Department under “extraordinary circumstances” before she embarked on a lobbying campaign last year that ensnared the president’s eldest son, members of Congress, journalists and State Department officials, according to court and Justice Department documents and interviews.

This revelation means it was the Obama Justice Department that enabled the newest and most intriguing figure in the Russia-Trump investigation to enter the country without a visa.

Later, a series of events between an intermediary for the attorney and the Trump campaign ultimately led to the controversy surrounding the president’s eldest son.

Just five days after meeting in June 2016 at Trump Tower with Donald Trump Jr., presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner and then Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Moscow attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya showed up in Washington in the front row of a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on Russia policy, video footage of the hearing shows.

Democrats spread false Russian information on Trump, campaign aides – Washington Times

While the liberal news media hunts for evidence of TrumpRussiacollusion, the public record shows that Democrats have willfully used Moscow disinformation to influence the presidential election against Donald Trump and attack his administration. 

The disinformation came in the form of a Russian-fed dossier written by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele. It contains a series of unverified criminal charges against Mr. Trump’s campaign aides, such as coordinating Moscow’s hacking of Democratic Party computers.

Some Democrats have widely circulated the discredited information. Mr. Steele was paid by the Democrat-funded opposition research firm Fusion GPS with money from a Hillary Clinton backer. Fusion GPS distributed the dossier among Democrats and journalists. The information fell into the hands of the FBI, which used it in part to investigate Mr. Trump’s campaign aides.

Mr. Steele makes clear that his unproven charges came almost exclusively from sources linked to the Kremlin and Russian President Vladimir Putin. He identified his sources as “a senior Russian Foreign Ministry figure,” a former “top level Russian intelligence officer active inside the Kremlin,” a “senior Kremlin official” and a “senior Russian government official.”

The same Democrats who have condemned Russia’s election interference via plying fake news and hacking email servers have quoted freely from the Steele anti-Trump memos derived from creatures of the Kremlin.

Trump Jr. Was Told in Email of Russian Effort to Aid Campaign – NYTimes.com

WASHINGTON — Before arranging a meeting with a Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer he believed would offer him compromising information about Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump Jr. was informed in an email that the material was part of a Russian government effort to aid his father’s candidacy, according to three people with knowledge of the email.

The email to the younger Mr. Trump was sent by Rob Goldstone, a publicist and former British tabloid reporter who helped broker the June 2016 meeting. In a statement on Sunday, Mr. Trump acknowledgedthat he was interested in receiving damaging information about Mrs. Clinton, but gave no indication that he thought the lawyer might have been a Kremlin proxy.

Russian Lawyer Who Met With Trump Jr.: I Didn’t Have Clinton Info They Wanted – NBC News

MOSCOW — The Russian lawyer who met with Donald Trump Jr. during the presidential campaign denied in an exclusive interview with NBC News that she had any connection to the Kremlin and insists she met with President Donald Trump’s son to press her client’s interest in the Magnitsky Act — not to hand over information about Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

“I never had any damaging or sensitive information about Hillary Clinton. It was never my intention to have that,” Natalia Veselnitskaya said.

Maddow Fake NSA Documents Alleging Trump-Russ | The Daily Caller

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow gave a “heads up” to other news organizations on Thursday after she was sent what she believes are faked National Security Agency documents alleging collusion between a member of the Trump campaign and Russian government.

“Somebody, for some reason, appears to be shopping a fairly convincing fake NSA document that purports to directly implicate somebody from the Trump campaign in working with the Russians in their attack in the election,” Maddow said in a lengthy segment on her show.

American Pravda Follow-Up: CNN Doubles Down

(NEW YORK) — A follow-up to Project Veritas’ American Pravda: CNN video again exposes Jimmy Carr, the Associate Producer for CNN’s New Day saying he doesn’t think he “said anything wrong.”

Carr was recently featured in Project Veritas’ American Pravda: CNN video series, stating that CNN thinks Trump is “f*cking crazy,” that Kellyanne Conway looks like she was “hit with a shovel,’ and that the American voters are “stupid as sh*t.”

After seeing the first and second Project Veritas video which exposed CNN employees admitting the Russia narrative was “bullsh*t” and a “nothing burger,” Carr says he “had a moment of panic.” He elaborates:

“[W]e’re all going holy sh*t, how is this guy so stupid, he’s talking to everyone and telling… Saying X, Y, Z about CNN. Then I went… Well, I talked to a couple of guys at a bar on Friday afternoon and I said things that we wouldn’t normally say…”

The Associate Producer then doubles down, stating he stands by his comments, which include offensive statements about President Trump, Kellyanne Conway, and the American voter:

“I mean granted, anything I’ve said to you I would defend on the record. I don’t think I’ve said anything wrong.”

Sharyl Attkisson: ‘Well-Funded Actors’ Manipulate News | Fox


Investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson slammed what she called “transactional journalism,” calling it “wholly inappropriate.”

“Transactional journalism” refers to inappropriate dealings behind the scenes some journalists have with political actors, the television host and author of the new book The Smear said.

“Virtually every image you run across, whether it is in the news or on social media or elsewhere, even on comedy shows is being put there, [the players I interviewed in the ‘smear universe’] say, for a purpose by somebody who wants you to think something that may not necessarily be a consensus at all, or may not even be true,” Attkisson told host Shannon Bream.
