As Mueller’s Probe Dies – The REAL Collusion Scandal Explodes

Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel is now over, and at long last, we discovered (to the dismay of MSNBC and CNN) that there was no collusion after all! One listener joked that the Counsel could’ve saved themselves $30 million if they had just listened to the Dan Bongino podcast.

It’ll be amusing to see how the true believers react to their world for the past two years collapsing in. Inevitably some faction of the collusion crazies will claim that Trump sabotaged the report, and I’ve even seen one commentator speculate that “Vladimir Putin got to Mueller.” No word then on why Putin did nothing to prevent a few dozen Russians from being indicted by Mueller (for charges unconnected to the Trump campaign).

There was no Russian collusion with the Trump campaign – but there was plenty of collusion between Ukraine and the Clinton campaign. We extensively documented those connections in our book Spygate, and just as the books’ central thesis of no collusion between Trump and Russia was just vindicated, as were our theories about Ukraninan collusion. According to an explosive new article by John Solomon:

Ukraine’s top prosecutor Yurii Lutsenko divulged in an interview that he has opened an investigation into whether his country’s law enforcement apparatus intentionally leaked financial records during the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign about then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort in an effort to sway the election in favor of Hillary Clinton.

On August 19, 2016, Manafort resigned from the Trump campaign after The New York Times reported that Ukraine’s Anti-Corruption Bureau found a black ledger in a bank vault abandoned by Viktor Yanukovych (the 4th President of Ukraine), showing $12 million in cash transactions related to Manafort. The ledger was exposed by Serhiy Leshchenko, a former Ukrainian parliamentarian, and former investigative journalist.

Days after publishing the ledger, Leshchenko told the Financial Times that “A Trump presidency would change the pro-Ukrainian agenda in American foreign policy. For me, it was important to show not only the corruption aspect but that he is [a] pro-Russian candidate who can break the geopolitical balance in the world.” It’s clear what his motivation was – to collude in an effort to take Trump down.

Yurii Lutsenko’s probe was prompted by a Ukrainian parliamentarian’s release of a tape recording purporting to quote a top law enforcement official as saying his agency leaked the Manafort financial records to help Clinton’s campaign.

The parliamentarian also secured a court ruling that the leak amounted to “an illegal intrusion into the American election campaign,” Lutsenko told me. Lutsenko said the tape recording is a serious enough allegation to warrant opening a probe, and one of his concerns is that the Ukrainian law enforcement agency involved had frequent contact with the Obama administration’s U.S. Embassy in Kiev at the time.  

It’s still unclear how Manafort’s black ledger was leaked to America media. The FBI had previously investigated Manafort for his Ukranian business activities but abandoned that in 2014 due to a lack of evidence. The black ledger added a spark to those ambers.. Solomon continues, noting that:

We know the FBI set up shop in the U.S. embassy in Kiev to assist its Ukraine–Manafort inquiry — a common practice on foreign-based probes — while using British spy Christopher Steele as an informant at the start of its Russia probe. And we know Clinton’s campaign was using a law firm to pay an opposition research firm for Steele’s work in an effort to stop Trump from winning the presidency, at the same time Steele was aiding the FBI.

In an interview with Solomon, Lutsenko said that the U.S. Embassy (in Ukraine) interfered in his ability to prosecute corruption cases. He claimed that the U.S. ambassador gave him a list of names of defendants he wasn’t allowed to pursue. He showed Soloman a letter from the embassy that partially supported his story, showing a U.S. official asking him to stand down (view here).

Meanwhile, in America, the DNC’s Alexandra Chalupa became the driving force in pushing the collusion narrative as soon as Manafort joined the Trump campaign. The DNC paid her $412,000 from 2004 to June 2016 for consulting work, after which she left to research Manafort full time. Chalupa had Manafort in her crosshairs since 2014 when his boss, the aforementioned Yanukovych (who discovered the black ledger), had protesters gunned down in the streets during the Ukrainian Revolution. In an email in May 2016, Chapula spoke about meeting with Michael Isikoff (a Steele dossier source) and connecting him to Ukrainians – and the two met at the Ukrainian embassy soon after.

If there’s a case for collusion to be made, it’s not with Russia.

 

Bombshell Report: Evidence Emerges of Ukrainian Plot to Sway 2016 Election for Clinton

New evidence is emerging that suggests Ukraine attempted to influence the 2016 presidential election in favor of Hillary Clinton, according to John Solomon of The Hill.

In an interview yesterday, Ukraine’s top prosecutor revealed that he opened an investigation “into whether his country’s law enforcement apparatus intentionally leaked financial records during the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign about then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort in an effort to sway the election in favor of Hillary Clinton.”

The leak of the files to American media outlets prompted Manafort to resign from the Trump campaign and “gave rise to one of the key allegations in the Russia collusion probe that has dogged Trump for the last two and a half years,” writes Solomon.

Ukraine Prosecutor General Yurii Lutsenko’s investigation was sparked by the release of a tape recording “purporting to quote a top law enforcement official as saying his agency leaked the Manafort financial records to help Clinton’s campaign.”

Solomon writes that a Ukraine parliamentarian “also secured a court ruling that the leak amounted to ‘an illegal intrusion into the American election campaign’…Lutsenko said the tape recording is a serious enough allegation to warrant opening a probe, and one of his concerns is that the Ukrainian law enforcement agency involved had frequent contact with the Obama administration’s U.S. Embassy in Kiev at the time.”

Solomon: Bruce Ohr’s Testimony Reveals Existence of Yet Another Russia Dossier

Testimony from DOJ official Bruce Ohr that has been kept secret from the public reveals that he delivered yet another Russia dossier to the FBI which was compiled by his wife, Nellie.

According to The Hill’s John Solomon, Ohr admitted to handing the FBI a computer drive full of information from his wife who worked for Fusion GPS–the opposition research firm hired by the Clinton campaign and DNC to create the original anti-Trump dossier.

Solomon writes:

The way Ohr described it, his wife’s research was like an additional dossier assembled from Fusion GPS research to augment what [Christopher] Steele was separately providing the FBI.

“She (Nellie Ohr) provided me with a memory stick that included research she had done for Fusion GPS on various Russian figures,” Ohr told congressional investigators.

“And the reason she provided that information to me is, my understanding was, it related to some of the same — it related to the FBI’s Russia investigation. And she gave me that stick to give to the FBI.”

Shady Hypocrite Adam Schiff Met with Fusion GPS Founder in July 2018

House Intelligence Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) met with Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson at a Aspen “social event” and never bothered to tell his colleagues on the committee–a standard he hypocritically set for his Republican counterpart, Rep. Devin Nunes (CA).

John Solomon of the Hill reports that photographs taken at a prestigious July 2018 Aspen media event show Schiff meeting with Simpson.

He writes:
“At the time of the encounter, Simpson was an important witness in the House Intelligence Committee probe who had given sworn testimony about alleged, but still unproven, collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign.

Simpson ran the firm hired by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic Party to find dirt on Trump in Moscow. He employed retired British intelligence operative Christopher Steele, whose infamous and unverified dossier became the main evidence for the FBI’s probe of the Trump campaign, particularly the surveillance warrant against Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

And by the time of the meeting, the House Intelligence Committee had already received evidence from a senior Justice Department official, Bruce Ohr, that called into question Simpson’s testimony to lawmakers.

**LISTEN: Dan discusses the outrageous Green New Deal and the latest in the Russia collusion hoax story

Both Schiff’s office and Simpson’s responded to Solomon with statements:

Schiff spokesman, Patrick Boland wrote, “The chairman did not have any pre-planned meeting with Glenn Simpson, and any conversation with him at the Aspen conference would have been brief and social in nature.”

Fusion GPS wrote, “In the summer of 2018, Mr. Simpson attended a media-sponsored social event where he exchanged small talk with Rep. Schiff and many other people who were in attendance. The conversation between the two was brief and did not cover anything substantive. There has been no subsequent contact between Mr. Simpson and Rep. Schiff.”

While Solomon notes there is nothing illegal or improper about a congressman meeting a witness in an ongoing investigation, Schiff’s encounter smacks of hypocrisy: Two years ago Schiff wanted then-Chairman Nunes to be investigated for meeting with National Security Council officials at the White House without notifying the committee.

Schiff said “I believe the public cannot have the necessary confidence that matters involving the president’s campaign or transition team can be objectively investigated or overseen by the chairman,”

Schiff’s spokesman declined to answer if the congressman disclosed his meeting with Simpson to the committee, however, multiple sources told Solomon that there was no evidence of his doing so.

President Trump reacted to the news today, tweeting, “Now we find out that Adam Schiff was spending time together in Aspen with Glenn Simpson of GPS Fusion [sic], who wrote the fake and discredited Dossier, even though Simpson was testifying before Schiff. John Solomon of @thehill”

Huge: Mueller Called Before FISA Courts after FBI Cheated on Surveillance Applications in ’02

Special Counsel Robert Mueller was summoned before the FISA courts when he was FBI director to address a “large number of instances in which the FBI cheated on sensitive surveillance warrants,” in 2002 and 2003, according to John Solomon of the Hill.

The news was revealed by former FBI principal deputy general counsel, Trisha Anderson, who testified to Congressional investigators that Mueller was asked to appear before the FISA judges over “extensive” cheating on FISA warrants.

**LISTEN: Dan discusses the breaking news regarding Mueller’s troubled history as the FBI Director**

“It preceded my time with the FBI but as I understood it, there was a pattern of some incidents of omission that were of concern to the FISA court that resulted in former Director Mueller actually appearing before the FISA court,” Anderson told Congress.

Solomon writes:

Other sources who worked for Mueller at the time told me the court’s concerns arose in 2002 and 2003 — shortly after America was stunned by the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks — when the FISC learned the FBI had omitted material facts from FISA warrant applications in more than 75 terrorism cases that dated back to the late 1990s.

Most of the omissions occurred in FBI work that pre-dated Mueller’s arrival, the sources said. But the court wanted assurances the new sheriff in town was going to stop such widespread abuses.

Mueller told the court the FBI had created a new system called the Woods Procedures — named for the FBI lawyer who drafted them — to ensure FISA warrant applications were accurate and did not omit material information, according to Anderson’s congressional interview.
