Friday and the weekend.

DETAILS EMERGE IN DUTCH INFILTRATION OF RUSSIAN HACKER CELL COZY BEAR

Here’s what we learned…

  • Cozy Bear, a.k.a. APT29, is located in a University building across the street FROM THE MOTHER FUCKING KREMLIN.
  • The Dutch had access to their security cameras.
  • The Dutch helped the United States State Department fend off an attack from the Russians in 2014.
  • The Russians managed to get a phishing mail into the White House.
  • The Dutch helped the NSA get on the PHONES OF RUSSIAN INTELLIGENCE.
  • Every time the Russians began an attack, they’d Google it to see if anyone was talking about it before they did it.

Article 5, mother fucker.

 

TRUMP TRIED TO FIRE DEPUTY AG ROSENSTEIN

This was reported before, part of the Mueller story from 1-25-18, but Trump thought about firing the Deputy AG as well.

Trump wants to fire Mueller, and realizes that as long as Rosenstein is in his position, he can’t fire Mueller. One option that was talked about earlier was firing the Deputy Attorney General, then ordering the replacement to fire Mueller.  Problem is, there’s no guarantee that would work, and we’d enter into a replay of the Saturday Night Massacre.  I think I covered that in Lateral Movement.

 

MUELLER INTERVIEWED FACEBOOK EMPLOYEE ABOUT HELPING TRUMP AND TIES TO RUSSIA

SCO Mueller interviewed employees of Facebook and asked them about how they helped Trump in the election, and how the Russians were involved.

 

TRUMP TARGETED FBI WITNESSES

Trump ordered a strategy of attacking several witnesses to his crimes of Obstruction of Justice in an attempt to discredit them.

Here’s a list of some of the laws that he broke…

18 U.S. Code § 1503 – Influencing or injuring officer or juror generally

18 U.S. Code § 1505 – Obstruction of proceedings before departments, agencies, and committees

18 U.S. Code § 1509 – Obstruction of court orders

18 U.S. Code § 1510 – Obstruction of criminal investigations

18 U.S. Code § 1512 – Tampering with a witness, victim, or an informant

18 U.S. Code § 1516 – Obstruction of Federal audit

 

KUSHNER MUST DISCLOSE BUSINESS PARTNERS

A Federal Judge has ordered Jared Kushner to release the names of his business partners in several Maryland corporations that he’s connected to.

For those not familiar, Maryland has very lax requirements when creating a company, and very low taxes.  For a few hundred dollars, one could create an LLC in Maryland on LegalZoom.com and have a fully legal business in a lickety-split.

The reason I think this is big is that once news comes out of who his businesses are connected to, he’ll be even further up shit creek than he already is.

 

STEVE WYNN RESIGNED AS GOP FINANCE CHAIR

Steve Wynn, a casino owner in Las Vegas who was appointed as the Finance Chair of the GOP by Donald Trump, resigned this weekend after news broke on Friday of him pulling a Weinstein.

Pulling a Weinstein: Abusing a position of money and power for sexual favors, up to and including rape, then using said money and power to force their victims into silence.

So far, the Republicans have not returned the money that he donated or raised for them.

 

TRUMP BOOED BY FOREIGN PRESS IN DAVOS

Thanks to Dallas for this story.

Following news broke of Trump trying to fire Mueller broke, The Dotard pulled the same “Fake News” bullshit that he does every single time a story breaks that he doesn’t like.  This time, the Foreign Press at Davos booed him.  Just like he deserves.

 

DIVORCE PUTIN DAUGHTER, LOSE A BILLION DOLLARS

Another example of Russian Kleptocracy at work.

Putin is a thief and a dictator.  This is not the first time that someone who crossed Vladimir.  I wouldn’t be surprised if he “slipped on some tea.

Or, just a good, old fashioned Russian Heart Attack.

 

ALEXEI NALVANY ARRESTED IN RUSSIAN PROTESTS

And here’s another example of Russian Corruption.

The people, especially the young people in Russia, are sick and tired of Putin’s regime.  In a clear and free election, Nalvany would win in a landslide.  But Russia doesn’t have free and open elections.  They rig them to let Putin hold on to power.

After we clean house in America and get our shit under control, we’re coming after the regimes that attacked the United States.  Putin’s Russia, Xi’s China, Erdogan’s Turkey, and the Islamic Republic of Iran.  Don’t think we forgot about you.

 

TRUMP SEEKS RELEASE OF NUNES MEMO

In a surprise to absolutely no one, Trump is siding with his stooge Devin Nunes over the Department of Justice and the FBI.

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times, Trump has no respect for the rule of law, and thinks he’s above it.  I can’t wait for him to get smashed with the Hammer of Justice.

 

VINNY MAC RAPE ACCUSATIONS FROM 2006

Following the announced restart of the XFL, The Daily Beast released a story reminding us all that Vince McMahon, owner of WWE and a long time friend of Donald Trump, was accused of attempted rape and sexual assault back in 2006.

I’ve heard rumors about some kind of shady connection between Trump and McMahon going back for years, possibly including their friend Jeffrey Epstien.

Vince’s wife Linda is a member of Trump’s Cabinet.

 

That’s it for today.  I might write something else tonight, but if I do, it’ll be short and/or light-hearted.  Then again, I could use a bit of a break.  It’s been a long weekend, and I’m watching wrestling tonight…

Hey, that’s an idea.  How this political situation would work out if it were a wrestling angle.  Angle is wrestling-speak for story.

 

Thank you, and have a good one.
