Christopher Steele Admits He Was Hired To Help [Crooked] Hillary Challenge 2016 Election

https://t.co/riy0dNIM5o

"Steele assembled an anti-Trump 'dossier' of opposition research investigative firm Fusion GPS, which was in turn hired by DNC law firm Perkins Coie LLP. The document used a 'senior Russian Foreign Ministry figure', and 'a former top level intelligence officer still active in the Kremlin,' according to Vanity Fair. In other words, Hillary Clinton - through Steele and other intermediaries - was working with Russians against Donald Trump. 

The dossier Steele produced was used as the basis for an FBI FISA surveillance warrant application to spy on members of the Trump campaign. Notably, the agency never told the FISA court that the dossier their application hinged on was paid for by the DNC and Hillary's campaign..."

The Disinformation Campaign Behind the Allegations of Russian 'Disinformation'

https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2018/12/18/pers-d18.html

"..The ruling class and the corporate media are frustrated that their claims have had little impact on popular consciousness, and very few people really believe Russia is responsible for social discontent in the United States. The claim, moreover, that Russian Twitter and Facebook posts are responsible for social discontent in the United States - the most unequal country in the world - is beyond ludicrous."

Bigoted Paternalism Behind 'Russia Targeted African Americans' NY Times Article

https://ghionjournal.com/bigoted-paternalism/

"The outlandish 'Russian interference' narrative just took a turn from the banal to blatantly disrespectful. This morning, the NYT decided to stop insulting our intelligence and instead chose to insult decency. This yellow press drivel is nothing more than propaganda that could have been written by George Wallace.

I chose to withold my support not because Russians conditioned me to think that way but because I refused to support a war mongering sociopath otherwise known as John McCain in pantsuits. I've followed Hillary Clinton's career long enough to know she is a corporate courtesan who can't get enough of destabilizing nations and enriching herself by trading access for cash. Furthermore, eight years of Obama catering to Wall St and embracing George Bush's war first policies was enough for me to tap out..."

That is true, but he was trying to help Israel by persuading the Russians to vote against a Security Council resolution, in conversations with Russian ambassador Kislyak. The question that immediately arises is "Why should the national security advisor to the president-elect have such major influence over Russian decisions?" Probably because the conversations also included promises to comply with Russian agenda items, such as getting rid of the Magnitsky law.

Literal insanity?  Or rationale behavior?

President Trump has gone to extraordinary lengths to conceal details of his conversations with Russian President Vladi­mir Putin, including on at least one occasion taking possession of the notes of his own interpreter and instructing the linguist not to discuss what had transpired with other administration officials, current and former U.S. officials said.

Greg Miller wrote:

Former U.S. officials said that Trump’s behavior is at odds with the known practices of previous presidents, who have relied on senior aides to witness meetings and take comprehensive notes then shared with other officials and departments.

But, I'm sure it's all just Deep State plotting against the one, true American patriot. After all, this doesn't look at all like the behaviour of a guilty person.

Twitter Erupts After NYT Reveals FBI Probe into Trump-Russia Links That Lead...Nowhere

"...Among Russiagate's devout faithful, the report was treated as an earth-shattering revelation that reinforced their core dogma - i.e., that Donald Trump is a Kremlin agent installed in the White House by Vladimir Putin to destroy democracy. 

Unfortunately, even the Times begrudgingly admitted - albeit buried in the ninth paragraph - that 'no evidence has emerged publicly that Mr Trump was secretly in contact or took direction from Russian government officials..."

 

"As we yell 'Treason' & speculate over whether Putin issued orders or manipulated Trump during their meeting, this detail seems important: Tillerson 'was present for the entirety' of it. Maybe the now fired ex-Sec of State is in on the 'treason'."
