MUELLER EYES CHARGES AGAINST RUSSIANS WHO HACKED DNC MAILS
Shit’s about to go down, peeps.
Special Counselor Robert Mueller is making it known that he’s looking at bringing charges against the hackers that attacked the Democratic National Committee.
Cozy Bear, aka APT29, is the Russian state sponsored hacking cell that infiltrated the DNC mail account of John Podesta through a phishing attack. They sent him one of those fake Gmail “Reset your password” mails, and due to a typo from the IT person’s warning, clicked on the link.
They’re not to be confused with Fancy Bear, a.k.a. APT28, who also played a role in the 2016 campaign. Fancy Bear is the group that the Dutch pwned, as I reported on Daily Check-In 01/26/2018.
This is big for two reasons.
First, it establishes that the Russians actively attacked the United States. This isn’t just an Intel Op like the Social Media campaign, but an act of cyber warfare.
Second, this sets up the conspiracy. By indicting the hackers, anyone who helped or benefited from the hacking is now part of the conspiracy.
FUN FACT: In Conspiracy sentencing, each and every person convicted in the conspiracy can be sentenced to the strongest penalty of any crime committed by the conspiracy. For example, if a group of 6 people rob a bank, and someone is murdered during the execution of the crime, ALL 6 can be sentenced for the murder.
That should scare the ever loving fuck out of everyone involved. If even one person committed a capital crime like treason or espionage, then EVERYONE involved, from the masterminds all the way down to the coffee grabbing interns, could be sentenced to death if convicted.
IVANKA TRUMP BUSINESS DEAL UNDER COUNTERINTELLIGENCE INVESTIGATION
Kremlin Barbie is FEATHERS14.
Ivanka Trump is under an FBI counterintelligence investigation because of her role in the Trump Vancouver deal. It’s a standard issue Trump deal.
In other words, a money laundering front for mobsters, drug trafficking, human trafficking, slavery, and general issue corruption.
GOP HOUSE INTEL STAFFERS LEAKED SENATOR WARNER’S TEXTS TO WIKILEAKS
Remember back on Daily Check-In 02/09/2018 when Senator Mark Warner’s texts ended up on Fox News from Wikileaks? The Senate Intelligence Committee knows how.
A staffer for Devin Nunes **cough**Kash Patel**cough** requested copies of the texts. Within two weeks, Julian Assange was trying get these to Sean Hannity.
What’s even more fucked up is Devin’s response to these accusations was “So?” Their defense was that even though the whole document was listed as Top Secret/SC, the individual pages weren’t marked.
Remember what I said earlier about conspiracy? Someone might want to tell Devin Nunes how fucked he’ll be.
H.R. MCMASTER MAY BE LEAVING BY APRIL
Trump hates him, he hates Trump, and supposedly both Mattis and Kelly want to replace him, because he’s been very hawkish about going to war with North Korea.
GETTING SCREAMED AT FOR TESTIMONY WAS FINAL STRAW FOR HOPE HICKS
I’m not trying to feel bad for Hope, but I understand.
My shortest, and best resignation notice of all time was “FUCK YOU, I QUIT!” as I was pulled away from the manager.
If Hope had enough of Trump’s shit, I wonder how everyone else will handle it.
STAFFERS ANXIOUS TO GTFO AFTER LOSING HOPE
Ok, each time I make a bad pun from now on, I have to put a buck in the Pun Jar. I tried a Swear Jar years ago, but I had to use those funds for little things, like student loans, mortgage, and day car expenses. And there was still money left in the jar. I should have reduced the cost per F-bomb down to something manageable, like a tenth of a penny.
Without Hope Hicks to serve as Trump’s “translator”, no one wants to be around when the fecal matter hits the mechanical air circulation device.
I’d almost feel bad… ah, who the fuck am I kidding? Watching Trump hate his life and see everyone around him getting crushed by investigations, sitting in an anxious pile wondering when Mueller’s gonna come for him is almost enough to make me OD on schadenfreude.
Same goes for the opportunistic shits that followed him to D.C.
QUESTIONS LINGER ABOUT MELANIA’S IMMIGRATION VISA
Melania Trump was awarded and EB-1 Visa, which is usually reserved for Professors, Doctors, Lawyers, Olympic Athletes, and Nobel Prize winners.
So, who did Trump bribe, or who was bribed on his behalf, to get a second-rate Slavic model this visa.
PUTIN SHOWS OFF “NEW” NUCLEAR WEAPONS
Something was off about this. Aside from the fact that the cartoons were 7 years old, the missiles in question can’t get off the ground, and his “new” missiles were developed more than a decade ago.
Putin’s body language was different. He was tense, almost nervous. Like, he’s afraid of something that’s going to happen.
This little stunt was supposed to shock people, but is screams of desperation.
FUN FACT: The United States indicted Manuel Noriega for drug trafficking back in the early 1990’s while he was President of Panama. There is a precedent to indict the “duly elected” head of a foreign power.
RUMOR MILL: THE AMPHETAMINE ADDICT DONALD TRUMP
Kurt Eichenwald, former reporter at Newsweek, was working on a story about Trump and his rampant drug use throughout the 1980’s. He was a pretty big fan amphetamines. His favorites were called “Chalkies” or “Tombstones.” Considering his penchant for only sleeping a couple hours a night, and his avoidance of alcohol, choosing uppers is not a surprise.
Pace, the former Secret Service Agent, was on this story as well, implying that this past behavior isn’t as “in the past” as he’d like everyone to believe.
That’s it for today. It’s a little shorter, but after the last few nights, I could use a little bit of a break. Plus, I had some RL stuff to take care of tonight.
Besides, tomorrow’s Friday. That means something big’s likely to happen right around 8PM. I wonder, do the producers of the Rachel Maddow show cry, scream, or laugh when a story breaks that forces them to throw out half the show?
Thank you, and have a good one
