Trump Confronts Accelerating Russia Probes on Multiple Fronts

1 Share

Special counsel Robert Mueller and key congressional committees are tightening their focus on some of President Donald Trump’s family members and campaign associates as probes into Russia’s interference with the 2016 election enter a new and more aggressive phase.

Even fired FBI Director James Comey is aware that he may return to Capitol Hill to follow up on his explosive testimony from earlier this year, according to a source familiar with his thinking. Comey, who was dismissed by Trump in May, has not received a subpoena or any official indication he’ll be summoned to again testify.

Both Mueller and congressional investigators are also eager to learn more from the growing roster of recently departed White House staff, including former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and strategist Stephen Bannon.

Interviews with more than a dozen lawyers and officials involved in aspects of the Russia probes hint at the intensity of what lies ahead in an investigation the president continues to rail against as “fake news” and a “witch hunt.”

That intensity is intended to put a strain on major characters as well as bit players who are under investigation, as they jockey for advantage and it becomes clearer who’s cooperating with investigators and who is resisting.

Read a QuickTake Q&A on the Trump-Russia saga

“In any criminal investigation it is in the government’s interest to magnify conflicts between the various people they’re looking at,” said Renato Mariotti, a former federal prosecutor who’s now a partner at Thompson Coburn LLC. “When the subjects of an investigation are pitted against each other the government can exploit those conflicts to induce some of the individuals to cooperate against others.”

Expanding Investigation

Although much of what Mueller is doing remains secret, there have been signs recently that his investigation is expanding, said two U.S. officials. That includes issuing subpoenas to a former lawyer and current public relations spokesman for Manafort, whose Virginia home was raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation last month.

Manafort, who directed Trump’s campaign during six critical months last year, has emerged as a central figure because of his past financial dealings and his work for a Russian-backed party in Ukraine. Manafort’s financial transactions are also under scrutiny by New York’s attorney general, Politico reported Aug. 30, adding that the former campaign chairman hasn’t been accused of any wrongdoing.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who earned Trump’s ire when he recused himself from the Russia probe, is also expected to testify in the Senate in the coming weeks for the second time since his January confirmation hearing. While Sessions may want to focus on his anti-crime agenda, senators will demand details about his role in firing Comey, who had led the Russia probe.

‘Complex Crimes’

“The investigations are becoming more active,” Mariotti, who led prosecutions in a range of white-collar crimes including securities fraud and tax evasion, said in an interview. Mueller is “conducting an extremely thorough and wide-reaching investigation into what are complex crimes” while Congress is holding hearings and releasing details that Mueller might not, he added.

Mueller also will submit a list of his expenditures to the Justice Department soon after Sept. 30, which may provide insight into the scope of his investigation. The department is expected to make the document public.

Besides Manafort, one focus of investigators on Capitol Hill is the president’s eldest son.

Donald Trump Jr. has come under scrutiny for arranging a meeting in June 2016 with Russians who were promising damaging material on Trump’s rival, Hillary Clinton.

With congressional committees competing to hear from key witnesses, the Senate Judiciary Committee appears to be first in line to hear from Don Jr., though no firm date has been set.

Fusion GPS

“In late July, Donald Trump Jr. agreed to provide the Judiciary Committee with documents and a transcribed interview prior to a public hearing,” Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley and the panel’s top Democrat, Dianne Feinstein, said in a joint statement Aug. 29. “Shortly thereafter, a date for that interview was set and agreed to by both the committee and Trump Jr.”

The Judiciary Committee also might vote this month on whether to release a transcript from a 10-hour closed hearing in August with Glenn Simpson, founder of the political consulting firm Fusion GPS that helped create a dossier with salacious and unverified material about Trump.

“The committee has a transcript of the interview,” Simpson’s lawyer, Joshua Levy, said in a statement. “We are not permitted to have a copy. The committee has the right to disclose the transcript, if it wishes to do so.”

Russian Ambassador

The House Intelligence Committee issued subpoenas in June seeking testimony and documents from Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen, as well as Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Flynn was removed after lying about communications he had with Russia’s then-ambassador to the U.S., Sergey Kislyak, before Trump took office.

Cohen has come under scrutiny because of allegations about him contained in the dossier linked to Fusion GPS and made public in January.

Cohen’s lawyer, Stephen Ryan, sent the House Intelligence Committee last month a point-by-point rebuttal of what he described as “sensational allegations” contained in the 35-page dossier. Ryan’s letter described that document’s allegations of ties between Cohen and Russian officials as false.

Cohen confirmed in an interview that he will testify before the House panel in September, after which he plans to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee. He added that he hasn’t received any communication from Mueller and has not been asked to appear before a grand jury.

Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, was interviewed behind closed doors by the Senate and House intelligence committees, on July 24 and 25. Since then, Kushner hasn’t received any requests to testify in private or public before any congressional committee, according to a person with knowledge of the matter. He also hasn’t received any formal requests or subpoenas from Mueller’s team, the person said.

‘Not Normal Times’

But Democrats say they continue to focus on details surrounding a meeting Kushner had in December — a month before Trump took office — with Sergey Gorkov, the head of a Russian state-owned bank known as Vnesheconombank, according to Representative Adam Schiff, the intelligence panel’s top Democrat.

Schiff cited the bank’s “reported ties to the Kremlin, that the meeting was taken at the request of Russian Ambassador Kislyak, and that Gorkov is a graduate of the FSB’s finishing school,” a reference to Russia’s premier spy agency.

“These are not normal times and things are about to heat up” for Trump and his associates, said Jeffery Cramer, a former federal prosecutor. “The clock is ticking.”

John McCain and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats spotted together abroad 

1 Share

What happens when a powerful United States Senator, known for his trips overseas to conduct clandestine business, is spotted abroad alongside the U.S. Director of National Intelligence? At the least, it gets people talking. That’s the case now that John McCain and Daniel Coats have been spotted – of all things – taking a boat ride together in Italy.

When it comes to official explanations, there’s a perfectly good reason for McCain to be there: he’s attending a high profile international forum while the Senate is recess, according to the Associated Press via the Washington Post (link). But see, the Senate is actually not in recess, because Senators left it technically in session when they most recently headed out of town so that Donald Trump couldn’t start firing and replacing cabinet members. And that context is part of what adds intrigue to the matter.

John McCain once secretly traveled to Syria to meet with the rebels there, without bothering to tell anyone – even President Obama – that he was doing so. After the most recent election, McCain also secretly sent an envoy to Europe to pick up a copy of the now-infamous Trump Russia dossier, which detailed everything from election collusion to the Pee Pee Tape. Any time Senator McCain travels abroad, or sends someone abroad, it always raises eyebrows. Considering the current chaos with Trump and his scandals, it sets off even more alarms.

Come to think of it, just why is the Director of National Intelligence meeting up with John McCain in Italy? Why does McCain consider this particular conference to be so important that he’s traveled to it in the midst of punishing brain cancer treatment? Dan Coats and McCain are old buddies from when they were in the Senate together. Maybe they were merely using that boat ride to catch up. Or just maybe – as has so often turned out to be the case – McCain is working on something under the radar. We’ll see.

Russian official discusses releasing blackmail material on Donald Trump 

1 Share

Now that Donald Trump has permanently failed to lift U.S. sanctions against Russia, and he’s turned out to be every bit as erratic as cynics had predicted, Vladimir Putin appears to be leaning toward deciding that his puppet Trump is now more trouble than he’s worth. Russian officials are increasingly speaking out against Trump, even taunting him. Now one of them is talking outright about releasing blackmail material that would destroy Trump.

During a debate on Russian state-run television, a number of Russian officials discussed various political issues. One of those officials was Nikita Isaev, the Director of the Russian Institute of Contemporary Economics. Translated into English, he said “Let’s hit Trump with our Kompromat!” This is a clear reference to the Pee Pee Tape or some other similar blackmail material that the Kremlin has long been alleged to be holding over Trump’s head. The host asked, “Do we have it?” Isaev responded “Of course we have it!”

The hour long Russian-language video can be watched here if you so choose, and Julia Davis was the one who identified Nikita Isaev’s call for the release of Kompromat. It’s difficult to imagine someone in Isaev’s position saying such a thing on Kremlin-controlled television unless he had Vladimir Putin’s blessing to say it.

This means we are now at a point where Putin is threatening or taunting Donald Trump by having a Russian official openly threaten to release blackmail on him on national television. This comes shortly after Maria Zakharova from the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs suggested that Trump may not get to finish out his term (link). As the United States continues to investigate Trump’s Russia scandal, the revelations that surface will only get problematic for the Kremlin. Putin could be leaning toward finishing off Trump in the hope of stopping the bleeding in that regard.

The most pressing issue and question of the modern times: 

ARE TRUMP AND PUTIN BRIDE AND GROOM OR NOT?! 

This question may be reformulated in a variety of ways, by recombining of its components. The essence remains the same: Is PutinTrump the same political animal and phenomenon or is there any difference between them? Putin just claimed that it is. I am not so sure. Can the proves be presented, in favor or against this hypothesis? 

The ball is in your court, Volodimir. Put your big Russian money where your corresponding mouth is: PROVE IT!

America’s most infamous illegal immigrant: Donald Trump’s wife 

1 Share

Last night Donald Trump decided to ruin the lives of eight hundred thousand innocent Americans who merely committed the “crime” of having been brought here as children by their parents. He’s previously endorsed a plan to place overall limits on immigration as well. He wants to build a wall to stop imaginary “Mexican rapists” from entering the country. But if Trump wants to begin kicking illegal immigrants out of the country, he’ll have to start with Melania.

Shortly before election day it was revealed that when Melania Trump first entered the United States, she illegally performed modeling work in violation of the U.S. visa program (link). The timing of the story, and Donald Trump’s shockingly illegitimate election “victory” a few days later, prevented the scandal from ever coming front and center. But the cold hard reality is that Melania came to the United States illegally, began working illegally, and just sort of stayed here, eventually becoming a U.S. citizen. But by her husband’s definition, she’s technically an illegal immigrant who needs to be sent home.

Melania Trump hasn’t committed any crimes since that time. She’s not guilty of any of the xenophobic stereotypes that Donald Trump has routinely and falsely hurled at immigrants during his time in politics. No one on any side of the political divide truly believes that someone like Melania should be deported simply because she came to the U.S. and began working here in undocumented fashion twenty years ago. In fact, aside from the part where she married a career criminal like Donald Trump, her story is more or less how immigration – documented or undocumented – is supposed to work.

Yet Donald Trump continues to demonize and torture immigrants, simply because he’s a sadist who enjoys pandering to racists. Considering he married an immigrant who came here and began working illegally, he’s also a hypocrite. Before he deports the DREAMers, let him deport Melania first.
