Monday, April 23rd and the weekend.

 

THE RUSSIAN INVESTIGATION

So, here’s the short version:

Took off from Asheville, 9:15PM Thursday Nov 7.

Landed Moscow 6:15AM Friday, Nov 8.

Saturday, Nov 9, Trump was pictured at the Ritz, tweeted he got a tour of Moscow. This is the next day, so he must have spent Friday night in Moscow, right?

Sunday, 1AM, November 10- Trump attends Miss Universe Pageant After Party.

Take off from Moscow, 3:58AM, Sunday, November 10.

Land at Newark 4:11AM Sunday, November 10.

Trump claims the allegation can’t be true, because he never even spent a night in Russia, but the travel shows otherwise.

Trump told James Comey multiple times that he wasn’t in Russia long enough to sleep.  While it’s possible that he didn’t sleep in the hotel, it strains credulity.

Trump notoriously sleeps only a few hours a night, typically about 4-6.  Assuming he slept on the plane right up to landing, and didn’t succumb to jet lag, he’s trying to push the tale that he was up for two days straight.  Not a lot of senior citizens can stay awake without assistance for that long.  And by assistance, I mean drugs.  Lots of drugs.  Coke and other uppers.

So, he took enough drugs to kill a small horse to stay awake and party for two days, or he slept in Russia, thus leading credence to the pee pee tape rumors.

Here’s an old article from last summer, where Bloomberg recreates Trump’s Two Nights of Parties in Moscow Echo Years Later.

I mentioned this for the first time on Daily Check-In 04/18/2018.  Looks like New York is working fast.

Two words:  Sealed Indictments.

Flynn Jr. is now saying his father never lied to Pence about his interactions with Kisylak. Which, if he is telling the truth, would mean:
  1. Pence, who has said he had no knowledge of the conversations Flynn was having with Kisylak and other Russian officials, actually did know.
  2. Trump’s reason for firing Flynn doesn’t hold water since the former national security adviser didn’t lie to Pence.
  3. Flynn chose to lie to the FBI about his dealings with the Russians during the transition but told the truth to the incoming vice president about those same interactions.

Flynn Jr. is not a very bright man.  This time, his stupidity may have accidentally tripped over the truth and shone a light on how much Mike Pence knows.

Flipping Flynn lays out how much trouble both Mike Flynn’s are in.

UPDATE: Just as I was finishing up, I ran across This article showing that Flynn Jr. is a subject of the Russian Investigation.  This leads credence to the standing hypothesis that Daddy Flynn flipped to protect his son.

Might have something to do with the fact that she’s a Russian spy.  Natalia Veselnitskaya is a cut-out for Russian Intelligence.  Even the Swiss called her a spy (Daily Check-In 01/29/2018).  If Mueller’s team or the FBI show up to interview her, they’re taking her back with them into custody.

 

COHEN: SEAN HANNITY’S REAL ESTATE EMPIRE

The records link Hannity to a group of shell companies that spent at least $90m on more than 870 homes in seven states over the past decade. The properties range from luxurious mansions to rentals for low-income families. Hannity is the hidden owner behind some of the shell companies and his attorney did not dispute that he owns all of them.

Sean Hannity, the man who sang about the evils of Obama’s government, built a real estate empire based off of government loans.

On the surface, this looks shady, but might not be illegal.  If everything was done above the board, then he’s just a rich old white guy benefiting off of the pain and misery of poor people.

Thanks to this post from Reddit /u/Diosjenin for tying the threads together:

You’re still missing it. It’s right at the end.

In footage unearthed this week that was broadcast on Fox News in January last year, Hannity mentioned having discussed an unidentified $2bn property venture in Dubai with Cohen.

“I said, ‘I’m interested in that deal myself,’” said Hannity.

It just so happens that Donald Trump also dabbled in a $2b property venture in Dubai with Michael Cohen.

It also just so happens that Donald Trump habitually uses large construction projects as a means of money laundering for shady friends (such as this project here).

It also just so happens that the United Arab Emirates, the country where Dubai is located, has served as a facilitator for back-channel Trump-Russia communications, and has used unregistered agents to influence US foreign policy up to and including pushing to fire Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State.

Which means Sean Hannity has probably partnered with Russia to launder money through real estate, in exchange for… something.

Wonder if that has anything to do with Julian Assange accidentally contacting the wrong Sean Hannity to offer dirt on ranking Senate Intelligence Committe Democrat Mark Warner via “other channels”.

So, we have Sean Hannity, Michael Cohen, and Donald Trump all involved in the same Dubai deal, likely as payoff for his work with the Russians.

By the way, Sean Hannity has been under an FBI Counterintelligence investigation since at least last August (Daily Check-In 8/3/2017).

 

#NEVERAGAIN

Reinking threatened someone with an AR-15 then drove to a public pool and exposed himself to others, said the USA TODAY Network’s Tennessean, citing police records. He has also threatened to kill himself and said he thought singer Taylor Swift was stalking him, according to the Associated Press.

Another case of White, Right-Wing, Domestic Terrorism.  This guy was crazy enough that law enforcement took his guns from him and gave them to his father, his next of kin.  His father then gave his son back his guns, and four people are dead because of it.

 

COLD WAR 2.0

Two words:  Magnitsky Act.  Freeze and seize their assets around the world.  Freeze the accounts of everyone they hang out with, they’re related to, and they know in passing.

Remember when Republicans gave a shit about using unsecured communication methods to relay classified information?  Something something buttery males.

 

WHITE HOUSE CHAOS

 

THE PROPAGANDA MACHINE/TECH WOLRD PROBLEMS

 

STORMYGATE

Jessica Drake, an adult-film star who claims she refused a $10,000 offer to have sex with Donald Trump after meeting him at a Lake Tahoe golf event in 2006, says Stormy Daniels told her Daniels was threatened by someone to stay silent about Daniels’ alleged sexual tryst with Trump.

“She actually told me about the threat twice,” Drake said. “So the first time she told me about the threat was shortly after it happened. She relayed the experience to me. I said something like, ‘I’m so sorry, I can’t even imagine. What are you going to do?'”

Know what’s more trustworthy than one porn star accusing Trump of using his goons to threaten her?  Another porn star backing it up from years ago.

 

RED STATE TEACHER STRIKES

 

SAY GOODBYE TO THE ECONOMY

 

GOP:  THE PARTY OF LINCOLN IS DEAD

 

BLUE WAVE

 

IN OTHER NEWS…

73 years of marriage, and less than a day after her funeral, George HW Bush is in intensive care in the hospital.  It’s like The Notebook, but in this case Ryan Gosling ran the CIA for a couple years.  Still a better story than Drive.

 

RUMOR MILL

 

 

 

That’s it for today.  Quite a few things happened over the weekend, but I still don’t think we’ve gotten to the bottom of the Sean Hannity story.  Until and unless Cohen’s emails show that his is all he worked with Sean on, I’m waiting for even worse stuff to come out about him.  The rumors floating around him involved quite a bit of SIGINT on him, as well as some sexual kompromat.

 

Thank you, and have a good one.
