remember that crazy arrest? The man was not even armed.
How about the arrest of George Papdopolous after he was set up? Credit this report to Dan Bongino. Quote:
the FBI’s attempts to entrap George Papadopoulos in London by trying to goad him into revealing information about Hillary Clinton’s hacked emails that he did not posses. The FBI would later claim suspicions regarding Papadopoulos’ contacts was their justification for opening a secretive counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign, even though all evidence suggests it was Christopher Steele’s dossier that actually justified it.
That wasn’t all – new revelations indicate there was yet another attempt to entrap Papadopoulos, this one possibly coming from Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel.
Buried on the final page of the memo recommending that Papadopoulos serve 6-months in jail for making false statements to the FBI is a reference to a $10,000 payment Papadopoulos said he received from a foreign national he suspected to be a spy. The court filing recommended a fine between $500-$9,500 for that (and a $9,500 fine was part of his sentence).
This is where things get interesting. According to the Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross:
While Mueller’s court filing makes no other reference to the individual, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned that a man named Charles Tawil gave Papadopoulos $10,000 during a meeting in an Israeli hotel room in July 2017.
It must be emphasized here how bizarre it is to pay someone $10,000 in cash for a business transaction in the modern age.
Sources familiar with the matter told TheDCNF Tawil flew to the Greek island of Mykonos to meet Papadopoulos and his now-wife, Simona Mangiante Papadopoulos. Tawil invited the pair to Israel, but Mangiante Papadopoulos stayed behind.
Earlier Papadapoulos had flown to Cyprus on June 9th according to his book “Deep State Target.” Of note, there’s a record of Andrew Weissman, an attorney for Robert Mueller’s special counsel, on the island on June 13th (source: page 5), but Talking Points Memo claims this was related to investigating Paul Manafort.
Papadopoulos gave the money to an attorney in Greece before traveling back to the U.S., a source told The Daily Caller on the condition of anonymity. Papadopoulos was arrested at Dulles International Airport on a return trip from overseas on July 27, 2017.
Papadopoulos and Tawil met through an Israeli political strategist named David Ha’ivri. Ha’ivri told The Daily Caller said that he introduced the pair “at my own initiative” to facilitate a business deal involving an oil and gas project in the Aegean and Mediterranean seas.
When Papadopoulos landed at Dulles airport he was immediately greeted by FBI agents as he landed. They already had his baggage in their possession.
This is where the dollar value of $10,000 becomes relevant – as it’s the exact threshold for which one needs to declare assets when entering the country. The FBI likely had hoped to catch Papadopoulos with $10,000 that he didn’t declare, but he didn’t have the cash on him because he wisely left it in Greece. With that likely plan failing, instead the FBI arrested him for “false statements.” Also of note, Papadopoulos was flying into Dullas airport for a connecting flight back to Chicago, and it would’ve been standard for him to have been arrested at his ending destination of Chicago. Papadopoulos would’ve been forced to claim money at Dulles (his initial entry back into the U.S.) – but not in Chicago.
Even more suspicious, Papadopoulos claimed on Twitter that the bills he was given are marked (with the purpose to tracing the money to him); comments he reiterated while appearing on Maria Bartiromo’s show this week. “I actually want Congress, Barr, Horowitz, and Huber to review the bills because I still have the bills and I think they are marked,” Papadopoulos said. “These bills that are still in Athens right now must be examined by the investigators because I think they are marked and they’re going to go all the way back to DOJ, under the previous FBI under Comey, and even the Mueller team.”
How about this report on Paul Manafort?
Paul Manafort has been behind bars ever since a federal judge in Washington, D.C. revoked his pre-trial release for violating his bail conditions as he faces money laundering charges. According to a new court filing that his attorney submitted to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, the former Trump campaign manager isn’t just behind bars, he’s in solitary confinement.
“He is locked in his cell for at least 23 hours per day (excluding visits from his attorneys), at a facility approximately two hours from his legal team,” Manafort’s attorney Frank P. Cihlar wrote. This confirms a previous claim from President Donald Trump‘s former attorney John Dowd, who said in June that Manafort was in solitary.
So why would someone like Manafort, who isn’t exactly accused of violent or dangerous crimes, be in solitary confinement? Law&Crime asked several criminal attorneys for their take on the issue, and if Manafort’s situation is normal.
The Mueller investigation was initiated by Rod Rodentstein to investigate a crime that was never committed. Actually the Mueller investigation was cover for a hoax and meant to entrap Pres Trump in a perjury or obstruction of justice charge-and of course the final end of impeachment/removal from office.
We paid for it. We lived through it. We tolerated 3 nearly 4 yr of the media colluding with the Democrat party to push the Russian Collusion lie.
Now the tables are turned. The truth of the attempted coup is being uncovered (BUT NOTICEABLY ABSENT FROM THE MEDIA)and every single corrupt individual is walking around in arrogance knowing they MIGHT get away with it;especially true if Biden wins. It will be forever buried. Not one of these corrupt individuals has met with justice. Yet,all these individuals in the Trump campaign were nailed by the same corrupt agencies. I haven’t even mentioned what they’ve done and ARE DOING to General Michael Flynn.
We’ve been patient. We were told the Durham report would be released before the end of summer. Summer is over. It’s close to the end of Pres Trump’s first term and after everything he went through for his whole term the Durham report is nowhere to be seen.
We’re done. Something has to give now. Wray MUST be fired and all the documents MUST be declassified. It’s over. It is the greatest scandal in American history and it’s being buried.The criminals are on tv, selling books,getting a hard pass. The promise of the Durham Report is a distant memory. ALL WORDS.
We’re done. We’ve been played for suckers. We accepted that the Durham investigation,unlike the Mueller probe, all had to be done by the book but it’s not getting done at all or at the least it’s being buried.
No patience left. One more time; Pres Trump needs to fire Wray and declassify ALL of the documents/info that are being withheld.
When Wallace went after Trump with the repeated LIE about Charolettesville i would have made it short n sweet:
Trump should have said;
i condemn racism in ALL its forms but i also believe most people are not racist and are willing to get along with others. Our admin designated the KKK as a terrorist organization and have facilitated outreach to the black community.
Wallace was totally dishonest in repeating the lie. The minute he did that he exposed his own position re Trump. You knew he was there to help Biden as much as possible.
Wallace brought up the fake tax story from the NY Times:
If i were Trump i would have said,again short and sweet:
i paid millions in taxes and you’re talking like the illegally released tax information has credibility. I want everyone to pay lower taxes period & that’s what we’ve done in our admin;cut taxes across the board.
The government wastes enough money.
Biden blaming Trump for the China virus:
Trump came back strong on that one but i would have added,
I did everything i could to save lives but China sent this plauge here. I did all i could to help the American people but i’m not God either. i have no power to stop a deadly virus. We ramped up production of all the medical equipment that was depleted. It saved lives.
Trump was reprimanded by Wallace for his interruptions,which Trump admittedly did. For awhile the 2 candidates were shouting over each other, so this is what i would have said if i were Trump:
I have the right to defend our record. You-meaning Wallace-won’t call him-meaning Biden- out. That leaves one person to do it-me- and i shouldn’t have to.
Wallace’s questions were designed to corner Trump and give Joe leeway.
Some people called the debate a shit show [and that it was] but Wallace was more to blame than Trump and Biden had no clue what he was doing. Were it not for Wallace helping him out Biden probably would have sunk himself.Good rule of thumb: when your opponent is shooting himself/herself in the foot, let him/her.
What was REALLY missing from the debate was the biggest scandal in American history: Obamagate. Wallace wouldn’t touch it.
Later today I’ll grab the actual transcript,take a step back and we’ll go over each of Wallace’s most dishonest questions and comments.
Wasn’t Chris Christie the RINO that recommended swamp creature Christopher Wray to Pres Trump for the FBI? IF i wanted stabbed in the back Christie would be my ‘go to’ person.
Wray is covering up all the corruption that was(and still is)going on at the FBI. He’s destroying the credibility of the good and decent people there.
I knew Wray was a snake the minute he testified before Congress with Rod Rodentstein 🐀. The 2 of them went out of their way to provide cover for the guilty as sin.
Their answer was always;we can’t talk about that.
A sure sign there was something they didn’t want you to know.
