HSIOW. Holy Shit, it’s Only Wednesday.
SENATE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE FINDS THAT RUSSIA MEDDLED IN ELECTION. CONTINUES INFLUENCE OPERATION TO THIS DAY.
The Senate Intelligence Committee had a press conference today. This is not standard operating procedure. Normally, they wouldn’t announce anything until the final report.
Why did they do this?
To light a fire under the asses of the states to get their shit together for next year’s elections.
What they said and didn’t say was important. Very important.
What did they say?
The Russians meddled in the 2016 election in the United States, and in elections around the world.
They continue their operations to this day, and show no signs of stopping.
They’ve interviewed over 100 people, and cannot rule out collusion between Trump and the Russians.
They hit a wall with reverse engineering the Steele Dossier.
What didn’t they say?
They didn’t say that Trump, his family, or his staff were exonerated.
They didn’t say that the investigation was wrapping up immediately.
They didn’t say that they were giving up on the Dossier.
STEELE DOSSIER PART OF MUELLER PROBE.
Speaking of the Steele Dossier, guess who’s coming?
He has the same information the FBI has. Which means that he has the sources that Steele gave them months ago.
TILLERSON AND THE FUCKING MORON.
Ever call your boss a moron? I prefer idiot, jackass, nincompoop, fucktard, waste of skin, or useless sack of electrified meat.
Well, I have. Many times over the past 20 plus years that I’ve been in the workplace.
This is one thing that I have in common with the Secretary of State. We have both questioned the mental state of our immediate supervisor, threatened to quit, denied the quitting part, but not the calling out the boss’s mental state.
Pro Tip: Call out the decision first, then the decision making process, then the decision maker, in that order. Offer suggestions at each step. Never open with “You’re a fucking moron!”
TRUMP KIDS, SoHo PROJECT, AND BRIBERY.
A big story broke today about corruption, bribery, and organized crime involving the Trumps. This time, though, it implicates Ivanka and Donnie Jr.
Trump SoHo was a clusterfuck from day one, which was used as a money laundering front. Many of the people who bought condos sued for fraud.
Did you know that lawsuits are another way to launder money? Party A sues Party B, dirty money is put into escrow, case gets dropped, then the now clean money gets returned.
The NYC AG Office wanted to prosecute the children. NYCAG Cyrus Jones overruled his staff following a visit from Mark Kasowitz, and $75,000 in campaign donations.
This is a development worthy of hyperbole.
This is the first time that Ivanka has been directly implicated in a crime from before her time in the White House. Not just that, but she was the brains behind the operation.
Next, NYC was ready to prosecute. The only reason they didn’t was what looked like bribery.
Finally, they partnered with Bayrock Property. Who runs that? Known FBI informant Felix Sater.
Get the popcorn.
RUSSIA’S FAVORITE REP MET WITH LAWYER FROM JUNE 9TH 2016 MEETING.
FURIOUS REPUBLICANS TRYING TO SHIT DOWN RUSSIAN INVESTIGATION.
WaPo reports that GOP groups around the country are putting pressure on House and Senate members of the various committees investigating Trump to stop their work, because of what they might find, and how much it’s killing Trump’s work.
This will end badly.
Years from now, when people ask “When did the Republican Party die?”, this will be one of the pivotal moments that I’ll point to.
Instead of letting them work to find the truth, they want to protect one man. One man, who isn’t worthy of respect or loyalty, and who has no loyalty to them.
They are putting party over Country during a war. History will not look kindly on them.
That’s it for today. Oh, wait, one more…
Thank you, and have a good one.
