Moscow Mike Flynn, Trump’s Failed National Security Advisor Resigns

Out Out Out!!!  LOCK HIM UP!!  Putin’s minion in the White House has resigned after it became clear his head is deeply up Putin’s behind.  The White House was warned that Moscow Mike Flynn was a traitor back in January, but instead of taking action, the incompetent Trump dimwits sat on the information and fired the messenger.

The acting attorney general informed the Trump White House late last month that she believed Michael Flynn had misled senior administration officials about the nature of his communications with the Russian ambassador to the United States, and warned that the national security adviser was potentially vulnerable to Russian blackmail, current and former U.S. officials said.

Whatever the case, it is thanks to real reporters that we learned the story behind Moscow Mike and his links with Putin.  Even with those links though, Flynn only really became toast after he lied to the Vice President, Mike Pence.

Even more pathetic is the fact that Moscow Mike Flynn led the charge against Hillary Clinton and her e-mail server–the one nobody cared about the day after the election (it was so important though the day before, right!!??!).  Flynn is a disgrace.

Grab some popcorn, this is only the beginning:

 

Trump’s Russian Oil Money

Inside the Steele Dossier, a document with a big list of claims about Trump (including one that he had hookers piss on him in bed in Moscow), there was one interesting claim about one of Trump’s key advisers and Russian oil money.  It went like this:

Igor Sechin, the CEO of Russia’s state oil company, offered former Trump ally Carter Page and his associates the brokerage of a 19% stake in the company in exchange for the lifting of US sanctions on Russia.

The sale eventually went through (with or without Page, we don’t know).  And while Trump’s stooge Page could deny that he received the 19% stake in the oil company, we know that Russia sold stake in Rosneft, with 19.5% going to someone.  But we don’t know who supplied the financing for the deal or who the purchasers were, and those facts are untraceable.  So was Carter Page one of the ultimate money-makers from the deal?  Was Trump?  Was a different Trump stooge?  Who knows.

More than a month after Russia announced one of its biggest privatizations since the 1990s, selling a 19.5 percent stake in its giant oil company Rosneft, it still isn’t possible to determine from public records the full identities of those who bought it.

What we do know is that Rex Tillerson, the former CEO of Exxon, is now secretary of state.  Something Carter Page was very excited about.  Tillerson’s Exxon also had a huge deal with Rosneft, probably worth hundreds of billions of dollars, but paused due to all the sanctions the U.S. slapped on Russia.   How long will those sanctions last?  Will they be lifted so Tillerson and/or Page can directly benefit?

Meanwhile, the Russians are rounding up and/or killing people that were associated with the Steele dossier:

Oleg Erovinkin, a former general in the KGB and its successor the FSB, was found dead in the back of his car in Moscow on Boxing Day in mysterious circumstances.

Erovinkin was a key aide to Igor Sechin, a former deputy prime minister and now head of Rosneft, the state-owned oil company, who is repeatedly named in the dossier.

As for that 19.5% stake in Rosneft, it was sold in December to a trading company called Glencore Plc and Qatar’s sovereign wealth fund, and likely split 50/50 between both.  Strangely, Glencore only contributed 300 million euro for its portion, and a Cayman Island firm, with unknown owners, is the owner of an unknown percentage of Glencore’s stake.

It’s as if the Russians are doing business with people who really don’t want the world to know who they are.

Trump’s National Security Advisor is a Russian Spy

The first major scandal of the Trump administration is here. Some may argue that the immigration ban debacle was really the first scandal. That, arguably, is a legal fight. This, however, is a pure scandal with clear corruption, dishonesty and likely spying on the U.S. on behalf of a foreign government. Treason?

National security adviser Michael Flynn privately discussed U.S. sanctions against Russia with that country’s ambassador to the United States during the month before President Trump took office, contrary to public assertions by Trump officials, current and former U.S. officials said.

It all started when Trump’s national security adviser, Michael Flynn, had several phone calls with the Russian ambassador before Trump took office. When Flynn was asked if he talked to the ambassador about the sanctions against Russia, he lied through his teeth and said no. Vice President Pence then went on record saying they did not talk about the sanctions.

This week somebody in the intelligence community obviously approached Flynn and told him he was a lying sack of shit. Told him that they knew he talked to the Russian ambassador about Russian sanctions. Told him there was a transcript of his call with the Russian ambassador. Told him he can’t deny it any longer.

 Federal officials who have read the transcript of the call were surprised by Mr. Flynn’s comments, since he would have known that American eavesdroppers closely monitor such calls. They were even more surprised that Mr. Trump’s team publicly denied that the topics of conversation included sanctions.

After that conversation, Flynn started to backtrack, saying he couldn’t “remember” if he talked about the Russians sanctions. He couldn’t be “certain” the topic never came up when he talked repeatedly with the Russian ambassador.  What do you think?

Now Vice President Pence is angry that he stood up for Flynn’s lies.  Pence says “it’s a problem” that Flynn talked about the sanctions to the Russian ambassador even though Flynn originally said he did not talk about the sanctions.  It’s a problem that Pence believed him and stood up for him, even though Flynn was lying and was more interested in helping the Russian government than his own government.

Congressman Eric Swalwell has called for Flynn to be suspended, and Congressman Adam Schiff has called for Flynn to be fired.

Moscow Mike Flynn, the Russian spy Trump put in as the United States National Security advisor, a paid-for shill on the Russian propaganda channel “RT,” and who sat next to Putin at an RT event, who faced consistent concerns that he is just a Russian agent, is Trump’s first scandal.  And everyone, except for Trump, saw it coming.
