The Durham Investigation Thread

It’s time. Let’s start with:

A guide to the players:

The art of the no deal.

In related news, the Senate voted to prohibit anybody who improperly interfered (as opposed to, I suppose, proper interference) in a US election from obtaining a visa.

They’ll just have to cross over from Mexico then.

Broad in scope. Sounds familiar.

The move is being seen as the Conte government’s response to the previous government’s coordinated surveillance activity with U.S. intelligence officials during the 2016 U.S. election.

The shake-up comes as “SpyGate” (known in Italy as “ItalyGate”) heats up with new developments breaking almost every day.

:point_up_2: and this from Italy.
Oh the fires are burning closer

Grand jury, you say?

Yeah, moving like a snail in church. Everyone suspected Mifsud was put up to it by western intelligence.

Working theory, Brennan (CIA) gets MI6 (either current or retired) to get London Centre of International Law Practice (LCILP) to set up some meeting with Papadopoulos and Mifsud. MI6 then monitor and feed back the information to the CIA and Brennan then passes it to Comey. Investigate!

3 years after the fact they get Mifsud on the record and probably the London Centre of International Law Practice (LCILP) connection. Don’t hold your breath there will be a speedy link to who told them.

Certainly off to a very delayed start. But it’s political on both sides, so perhaps they needed the deck cleared by the Mueller meltdown before the optics would be right.

The back channel could be more than MI6 to Brennan, it could be Clinton involvement or Fusion GPS.

But these are obvious questions that should have been asked 3 years ago, am I impressed Mifsud is now on record saying something? Not really, it just is another wild goose chase which leads to nowhere.

I will be pleasantly surprised if I am proven wrong.

A reminder of what this impeachment theater is really all about:

TL,DR: Her feelings are hurt. Also, there’s a report coming out soon.

Some Snopes style doublespeak:

Don’t scoff, Benjamin Wittes of Lawfare was tweeting about her a few weeks ago out of the blue. The piece is a rollout and part of a pattern they have been building for witness tampering and intimidation. They did a long piece on Michael Cohen back in January and played the same theme with the Ukrainian ambassador.

Lawfare also wrote up what would be justification for impeachment the last article they pretend is kind of like an afterthought, witness tampering and witness intimidation. Once all the Ukraine and Russian nonsense falls to the side, they will be left with Obstruction of justice, witness tampering and witness intimidation. That’s when they consolidate all the cases into one and make their play. If they have not decided to throw the towel in by then that is.

I kind of assumed all that was coming anyway. The Orange One can deal.

Interesting bit of news.

Everyone by now knows the theory Obama was trying to set up Trump associates with Russians, Stefen Haper and Azra Turk were working for the intelligence community. Joseph Mifsud is strongly suspected of working for Western intelligence. The Russian lawyer who worked with Fusion GPS almost certainly was sent in to dirty up the team.

Those on the left following the Russia plot will be familiar with Nader because he contributed a million after Trump was elected an introduced Trump associates to Russians after the election. They might not be aware one of his lawyers is (or was) Kathryn Ruemmler aka Obama’s fixer.

Oh well, lets hope Barr can take better care of him than Epstein.
