I hope he is very competent. The future of this country may depend on him doing a good job. That is how serious this is.

*************************************************

Lisa Monaco, the White House's Homeland Security advisor, tasked Mueller to talk to Alexander Bortnikov, head of Russia's internal security and counter-intelligence service, the FSB.

For at least a week, Mueller called Bortnikov's office, starting at 3 a.m. in Washington. Each time, the FBI director was turned aside without getting Bortnikov on the line.

"Mueller just kept calling over there, like begging to talk to the guy," said a former official. Instead, Snowden was granted asylum in Russia.

The unsuccessful outreach offered Mueller insight into Russian intelligence, who U.S. officials say helped hack and leak Democratic Party emails last year in an effort to undermine U.S. democracy and to help Trump's campaign.

Investigators and lawyers who have worked with Mueller say that his legacy as special counsel will depend, ultimately, on his resolve, his integrity and especially his judgment.

"If he believes somebody has committed a crime, he's going to do whatever he can to hold them accountable," said a former FBI colleague. "Trump's name or brand is not going to back down Mueller."

http://www.cnn.com/2017/11/26/politics/donald-trump-doug-jones-tweet/index.html

Sen. Lindsey Graham bemoaned President Donald Trump's support for Alabama Senate Republican candidate Roy Moore on Sunday, calling the move a lose-lose situation.

"If he wins, we get the baggage of him winning, and it becomes a story every day about whether or not you believe the women or Roy Moore, should he stay in the Senate, should he be expelled?" Graham said on CNN's "State of the Union." "If you lose, you give the Senate seat to a Democrat at a time where we need all the votes we can get.

"The moral of the story is don't nominate someone like Roy Moore who can actually lose the seat any other Republican could win," the South Carolina Republican told anchor Dana Bash. "And what I would tell President Trump: if you think winning with Roy Moore is going to be easy for the Republican Party, you're mistaken."

Trump, who has all but endorsed Moore in the special election to fill the seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, slammed Moore's Democratic opponent, Doug Jones, in a tweet early Sunday morning.

"The last thing we need in Alabama and the U.S. Senate is a Schumer/Pelosi puppet who is WEAK on Crime, WEAK on the Border, Bad for our Military and our great Vets, Bad for our 2nd Amendment, AND WANTS TO RAISES TAXES TO THE SKY. Jones would be a disaster!" Trump tweeted.

Many Republicans, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan, have disavowed Moore, pulling their support for his candidacy after several women accused Moore of pursing sexual relationships with them when they were in their teens and he was in his 30s.

David Urban, a former Trump campaign strategist, broke with the President on "State of the Union," saying, "I think the only thing worse than Doug Jones is Roy Moore.

"I think Roy Moore will be an anchor on the Republican brand, Urban said. "I think it will be a disaster for the midterms and the party will continue to try to move and separate itself.

I think that the governor should have just postponed the election, it's well within in her purview to do so and could have solved it very easily."

One woman alleges Moore touched her inappropriately when she was 14. Another woman has accused Moore of sexually assaulting her when she was 16. The legal age of consent in Alabama is 16.
Moore has repeatedly denied the allegations, which Trump has emphasized when asked about the former Alabama chief justice's candidacy.

"He denies it. Look, he denies it," Trump said last week. "If you look at all the things that have happened over the last 48 hours. He totally denies it. He says it didn't happen. And you know, you have to listen to him also."

Moore wasn't the President's first choice for the nomination. Trump backed Luther Strange, who was appointed to finish out Sessions' term by then-Gov. Robert Bentley, in the primary, moving to support Moore only after Strange lost. Trump reminded his followers of that fact in a tweet Sunday morning.

"I endorsed Luther Strange in the Alabama Primary," Trump wrote. "He shot way up in the polls but it wasn't enough. Can't let Schumer/Pelosi win this race. Liberal Jones would be BAD!"

Trump's tweets on Sunday aren't his first swipe at Jones. Last week, he told reporters on the White House lawn, "We don't need a liberal person in there, a Democrat, Jones. I've looked at his record. It's terrible on crime. It's terrible on the border. It's terrible on military. I can tell you for a fact we do not need somebody who's going to be bad on crime, bad on borders, bad with the military, bad for the Second Amendment."

Informant Testimony Reveals Obama-Era Payments, Mueller Uranium Hand-Off
Posted by Mark Megahan | Nov 21, 2017

Robert Mueller muled some fissile material to Moscow for Hillary as a favor.

Hillary Clinton and Robert Mueller were so close to the Uranium One scheme, if you pointed a Geiger counter at either one of them, it would squeal right off the scale. We knew already that Hillary is caught in the middle of a quid-pro-quo to sell uranium interests to Russia in exchange for $145 million dollars. The latest bombshell revelation is that then-FBI Director, Robert Mueller not only knew about Hillary’s Russian collusion, he muled some fissile material to Moscow for her as a favor.

Proving that the mainstream media actively conspires to prevent the public from learning the truth, a blatant smear campaign has been launched in the press against the FBI’s no longer confidential informant. Just one of the things they don’t want you to know is how involved FBI Director Mueller was. He currently is the witch smeller tasked with establishing, one way or another, Russian “collusion” with President Trump and his campaign.

One of the things William Douglas Campbell is supposed to testify about is that in September of 2009, Director Mueller “personally” delivered “a 10-gram sample of highly-enriched uranium to the Russian government.” This little courier job was ordered by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton herself and confirmed by a Wikileaks Twitter post referring to a State Department cable in May of this year.

Last night, The Hill published a story after reviewing actual evidence William Douglas Campbell plans to present as part of his upcoming testimony before two Congressional House subcommittees. According to their investigators, the evidence conflicts with “several media reports as well as statements by Justice officials.”

Officials at the Department of Justice have made statements to the press alleging that what Campbell has to say will be limited at best because he worked for a subsidiary, Tenex, not the larger firm. It turned out that he still managed to come up with quite a collection of evidence.

Director Mueller “personally” delivered “a 10-gram sample to the Russian government.

Enough to clearly show that the FBI had plenty of documentation that “Rosatom officials were engaged in criminality well before the Obama administration approved Rosatom’s purchase of Uranium One.” The FBI documented $2.1 million in bribes Mikerin collected and then disbursed through “offshore shell companies in Cyprus, Latvia and Switzerland” that “ultimately benefited entities connected to Vladimir Putin.”

According to Yahoo News, Campbell “was considered so unreliable that prosecutors dropped him as a witness in an unrelated case involving Russian uranium sales,” citing unnamed sources in the Justice Department. Not so unreliable they couldn’t pay him though. The Justice Department wrote him a check for $51,000 as they closed out the last of the related bribery convictions in January of 2016.

Campbell’s attorney, Victoria Toensing, says “This is a smear job.” The real reason his testimony wasn’t used against Vadim Mikerin was “the Obama administration didn’t want to bring a big extortion case against Russia” that would feature Campbell’s testimony undermining the Uranium One sale. Instead, she asserts, “they covered it up.”

Hillary used her position on the Senate Armed Services Committee to threaten “to withhold aid.”

If any of Campbell’s evidence had seen the light of day, the sale of Uranium One would never have been approved. It would have been clear grounds for disqualification by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS). Mr. Campbell “helped the FBI record the first criminal activity by Rosatom officials inside its Tenex arm in November 2009, nearly an entire year before CFIUS approved Rosatom’s purchase of Uranium One.”

It all started on September 6, 2005, when ex-President Bubba Clinton hooked up with a buddy from his Arkansas days, Canadian billionaire Frank Giustra. Along with an assistant to federal fugitive Marc Rich, who Clinton later pardoned on his last day of office, they met in Almaty, Kazakhstan. They were supposedly there to “help HIV/AIDS patients gain access to certain drug therapies,” except Kazakhstan didn’t have an HIV/AIDS problem. What they did have was $5 trillion in resources, including uranium.

Giustra used the opportunity to meet with Kazakhstan officials to work out mining deals with his company, UrAsia Energy Ltd. “The Giustra-Clinton Sustainable Growth Initiative” was born.

The very next day, Hillary used her position as a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee to threaten “to withhold aid to Kazakhstan unless and until the UrAsia mining deal went forward.”

Giustra gave a little token of his appreciation to the Clinton Foundation.
The day after that, “UrAsia Energy Ltd was awarded Kazakhstan mining rights from Kazatomprom, the atomic energy agency for Kazakhstan” and “suddenly became the world’s largest uranium mining producer.” A short while later after the dust settled, Giustra gave a little token of his appreciation to the Clinton Foundation. $31.3 million dollars.

Robert Mueller came on the scene in August of 2006 when he opened an investigation into corruption and uranium smuggling involving the former Soviet Republics.

A few months later, in February of 2007, Kazatomprom’s boss, Mukhtar Dzhkishev, showed up on Bill Clinton’s Chappaqua doorstep to talk about a new deal with Giustra. Coincidentally, later that same month, Giustra sold his UrAsia Energy Ltd to Uranium One, but in some fancy footwork involving a “reverse merger,” he kept 60 percent controlling interest.

Soon after, Giustra and associates announced, “a recurring commitment to donate $100 million and half of future profits to the Clinton Foundation.” The arrangement paid off with an estimated $145 million in direct contributions to the Clintons.

On June 9, 2009, Kazatomprom Director Dzhkishev, was arrested by the Kazakhstan government on Uranium One corruption charges. Allegedly prompted by Vlad Putin’s desire to snatch the uranium out from under Kazakhstan’s dictator.

Because the move threatened the Uranium One sale to Rosatom, Hillary used her position as head of the State Department to once again threaten to withhold financial aid to Kazakhstan. Not surprisingly, they backed down and the deal went through. Three months later, Muller was muling uranium to Moscow as Hillary’s personal courier.

The Washington Post on Monday published a report about a woman who falsely claimed Roy Moore sexually assaulted her as a teenager — and who appeared to work with Project Veritas, an organization that uses deceptive tactics and secretly recorded conversations in an effort to embarrass its targets.

Shortly after the investigation was published, Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe tweeted a video of what he called his “confrontation” with one of the authors of The Post investigation, Aaron C. Davis. The video was heavily edited, a tactic for which Project Veritas has drawn criticism.

The Post filmed the entire encounter.

Davis and another Post reporter, along with two video reporters, went to the Project Veritas offices in Mamaroneck, N.Y., on Monday morning to try to determine whether the woman, Jaime T. Phillips, worked there. They watched as she walked into the office. O’Keefe, who appeared minutes later, declined to answer questions. He invited Davis back for an interview shortly after noon.

In the full version of the video, O’Keefe repeatedly declined to answer questions about the woman and her affiliation with Project Veritas. The organization has previously targeted mainstream media outlets such as CNN, which it accuses of being biased.

Upon tweeting the edited version of the video, O’Keefe said, “The Washington Post sends a reporter to question me, but take a look. Who’s interviewing who?”

https://www.npr.org/2017/07/14/537247838/what-really-irritates-vladimir-putin-the-magnitsky-act

If you're not familiar with the Magnitsky Act, a 2012 U.S. law, here is the most important thing to understand: Russian President Vladimir Putin and everyone in his orbit hates it.

"A purely political, unfriendly act," Putin called it at the time, and he has been railing against it ever since.

Congress wanted to punish Russian human rights abusers by barring them from entering the U.S. This followed the 2009 death of Sergei Magnitsky, a Russian lawyer who died at age 37 in a Moscow prison where he was held — and allegedly beaten — after accusing Russian officials of massive tax fraud.

The law symbolized the deteriorating relations between the U.S. and Russia. Days after Congress passed it, the Russian parliament responded by banning American citizens from adopting Russian orphans.

In a bizarre 2013 trial, a Russian court went even further, convicting Magnitsky of tax fraud — four years after he died.

The Magnitsky Act re-emerged as a front-burner topic this week in connection with the investigations surrounding President Trump's campaign and possible links to Russian meddling in last year's presidential race.

Russia has lobbied hard for repeal of the act. That's what Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya said she was doing when she met with Donald Trump Jr. in June 2016 at Trump Tower in New York.

News broke Friday that she was accompanied at that meeting by Russian-American Rinat Akhmetshin. He is known as a skilled political operator who has worked in both the former Soviet Union and the United States on behalf of his clients, according to a U.S. journalist who has known him for two decades.

Akhmetshin has also spoken freely about his past in Soviet military intelligence, according to the journalist, Steve Levine, who works for Axios in Washington.

However, in remarks to The Associated Press, Akhmetshin said he served in a military unit that was part of counterintelligence but was not trained as a spy.

Levine first encountered Akhmetshin in Kazakhstan. There, in 1998, he provided Levine with confidential banking and legal documents pointing to financial corruption by the country's president.

"His signature is to be able to drill very, very deeply in the former Soviet Union, in a very knowing way," Levine said. "Here in Washington, he's this very unusual character, who may be the most skilled lobbyist I've met."

Akhmetshin is, he added, "someone who can ingratiate himself with members of Congress and their staffs, power figures here, and make things happen."

Levine said they've been in touch periodically over the years, including in brief email exchanges in recent days as Akhmetshin's name began to surface in media reports.

Akhmetshin, who has become a U.S. citizen, has aggressively lobbied against the Magnitsky Act. Just a few days after his meeting with Trump Jr. in New York last year, Akhmetshin was in Washington to promote a movie called The Magnitsky Act — Behind the Scenes.

The film was shown at the Newseum in Washington on June 13, 2016. It offers the Russian government's version of events and claims that Magnitsky was not mistreated by Russian authorities.

Trump Jr. has also said that — to his disappointment — last year's meeting with the Russians focused on the Magnitsky Act. Trump Jr. was told in advance the meeting would produce critical material on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. When the topic turned out to be the U.S. law, he considered it a waste of time.

Analysts have offered many theories on why Russia wanted to meddle in the U.S. presidential election: to undermine the credibility of the U.S. vote or to harm Hillary Clinton, whom Putin blamed for the protests leading up the Russian presidential election in 2012.

Rarely mentioned is the Magnitsky Act, a relatively obscure matter inside the U.S. but a major frustration for Russia's leadership.

Republican memo proves to be worse than meaningless
02/02/18 04:32 PM—Updated 02/02/18 04:39 PM

Yesterday afternoon, Axios ran an item, quoting sources inside the Trump administration, saying there were some fears inside the White House about the Republicans’ Nunes memo. It wasn’t that Trump World was afraid of national security consequences, or mass resignations, but rather, it started to dawn on the White House that the hyped memo might be a “dud.”

Administration officials, the report said, “expect it will be underwhelming and not the ‘slam dunk’ document it’s been hyped up to be.”

Now that the memo is available, we know those concerns were overly generous – because it’s actually worse than meaningless.

1. The memo debunks some of the central tenets of the broader Republican argument. For months, Donald Trump and his cohorts have pushed the line that the Steele dossier was the match that lit the fuse on the Russia investigation. We’ve known for a while that this argument is wrong, but what we didn’t know is that the Nunes memo would side with the reality-based community and reject the Trump World line, conceding that it was Papadopoulos, not the dossier, that started the federal probe.

2. The memo makes pointless arguments for no reason. Apparently, Christopher Steele, like most of the American electorate, did not want Trump to become president. What’s more, Steele’s dossier, as we’ve known for quite a while, was funded in part by Democrats. Observations like these may excite confused partisans, but they have no legal, procedural, or political significance, and they do nothing to advance the baseless assertion that there were abuses among federal law enforcement officials.

3. The memo makes apparent factual errors. The document’s Republican authors make the case that the surveillance of Carter Page wouldn’t have occurred without the Steele dossier, and cite former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. That’s apparently not what McCabe said. Worse, it’s not the only mistake.

4. Trump, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, and their cohorts took an outrageous step in exchange for nothing. The White House is at odds with the FBI. Congress is at odds with federal law enforcement. The House Intelligence Committee is divided against itself. As former FBI Director James Comey noted this afternoon, Republicans are responsible for creating this dangerous mess, and they have nothing to show for their efforts except a laughable document.

5. The memo leaves Republicans without rhetorical ammunition. This was their shot. This was Trump sycophants’ opportunity to make their case – in writing, with classified information – with the media spotlight and the public’s attention. This was their chance to show that there were actual abuses and that the investigation into the president and his political operation lack justification. Instead, they fired blanks.

Al Capone’s vault had nothing in it, and as a consequence, proponents of the related conspiracy theories are actually worse off than they were before. The document’s authors set out to prove a conspiracy and failed spectacularly in their task.

Postscript: It was just two weeks ago that one GOP lawmaker said the memo exposed abuses “worse than Watergate.” That seemed foolish at the time, but it’s kind of hilarious now.

It is amazing how Republican congressmen start telling the truth after they announce they are not running again. They no longer have to be afraid of the bully Trump doing nasty tweets on them.

https://www.cnn.com/2018/02/04/politics/trey-gowdy-memo/index.html

South Carolina Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy said the recently released, controversial GOP memo alleging FBI abuses of its surveillance authority does not have "any impact on the Russia probe," and even without the Steele dossier, there would be a Russia investigation.

"There is a Russia investigation without a dossier," Gowdy said in an interview that aired Sunday on CBS's "Face the Nation," days after he announced his decision not to seek re-election.

LOL. I love it. From Fox news.

http://insider.foxnews.com/amp/article/60100

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) said the release of the controversial FISA memo by Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee does not discredit Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation.

In a series of tweets on Friday, Gowdy said the memo, which alleges government surveillance abuse targeting at least one member of the Trump campaign, raises concerns about the FISA process and is of interest to the American people.

Despite that, Gowdy said he remains confident in Mueller and the "overwhelming majority" of the men and women serving at the FBI and Justice Department.

LOL. We are witnessing a two edged at work, on one side many Republicans support the party by supporting a GOP President but adversely so, this idiot liar has gone so unethical and rogue, he is jeopardizing the future of many GOP candidate's re election in November. So in the interest of it's constituency, these outgoing Senators and representatives are gravitating toward some honesty for a change in hopes of escaping the new narrative of the Republicans not being the party of Lincoln but more so, a a party of racist, hateful liar.
