THE RUSSIAN INVESTIGATION

June 17, 2016 – Psy Group CEO Joel Zamel is in Russia, and chats with George Nader, looking to “raise money for a social-media campaign in support of Trump.” July 1, 2016 – Psy Group’s ownership transfers to a BVI company with countless connections to Russian finance. August 3, 2016 – Zamel meets with Trump Jr, Nader, Erik Prince and pitches social media campaign to support Trump. After the election – Zamel brags to Nader that he conducted a secret campaign that helped Trump win. Nader pays Zamel $2,000,000 for unknown reasons. We know that Psy Group’s sister company is owned by Russian billionaire Mikhail Slipenchuk. Guess who was at the St Petersburg Forum where Zamel was looking for Psy Group investors? Mikhail Slipenchuk.

THE ULTIMATE COCKFIGHT: BEZOS’S PECKER VS. DAVID PECKER

The brother of Jeff Bezos’ mistress, Lauren Sanchez, supplied the couple’s racy texts to the National Enquirer, multiple sources inside AMI, the tabloid’s parent company, told The Daily Beast.

Another source who has been in extensive communication with senior leaders at AMI confirmed that Michael Sanchez first supplied Bezos’ texts to the Enquirer.

The leaked texts, published last month, included notes from Bezos like, “I want to smell you, I want to breathe you in. I want to hold you tight.”

AMI has previously refused to identify the source of the texts, but a lawyer for the company strongly hinted at Sanchez’s role during a Sunday morning interview on ABC.

“The story was given to the National Enquirer by a reliable source that had given information to the National Enquirer for seven years prior to this story. It was a source that was well known to both Mr. Bezos and Ms. Sanchez,” attorney Elkan Abramowitz told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos.

RUMOR MILL

 

That’s it for Monday.  Yes, it’s short on editorializing.  To be honest, I’m tired.  It’s not a good sign when it’s this early and the week and I’m already looking forward to a day off.

I don’t want this to sound like nothing happened.  Stuff happened.  A cameraman was attacked at Trump’s MAGA Rally.  AMI says they got the Bezos texts from the brother of the mistress, and he has ties to Stone and Manafort.  Still ignores the Saudi connection, and suddenly the National Enquirer is a reputable source for investigating their own activity?

Tuesday has some stuff coming about Qatar.  Also, I have to update The Indicted with Paul Erickson.  I forgot to do that last week.

 

Thank you, and have a good one.
