UPDATE: Sources with links to the intelligence community have now confirmed that this theory is accurate, and I am therefore upgrading this story from my theory to a factual report.
Patribotics hopes to expand reporting and commission other writers. If you would like to donate, there are buttons around the site, or you could make a contribution here.
Once I announced on Twitter and elsewhere that this theory was validated by sources, data scientists who had been examining the server data began to re-examine it in the light of this statement. @TeaPainUSA on Twitter, who knows his data science, collaborated with some other patriot data scientists on Twitter and off to produce this crucial report explaining how Alfa’s server laundered the data.
Here is my theory of how Donald Trump will be impeached, and scores of people around him jailed.
It wasn’t just money laundering – it was “data laundering”.
My theory is based on public reporting, to which I will link in the text. Here it is:
Alfa Bank is a front for Russian intelligence. Along with Dimitry Firtash, a Russian agent of influence, it owns Cambridge Analytica, the data targeting company used by Trump’s campaign. It also owns SCL, the propaganda company responsible for what has been termed “fake news” but was actually real propaganda co-ordinated by Russian intelligence.
Cambridge Analytica and SCL use Facebook data they had no right to acquire, illegally stolen by a Russian spy working at Cambridge, to build an unbeatable target database of propaganda.
In the closing days of the election, the Russian state hacked into the voter rolls of the United States. Russian intelligence did this in order that they could provide this information to Alfa Bank in order to use Cambridge Analytica’s targeting, and SCL’s propaganda, in order precisely to target voters and tip them to Trump.
Paul Manafort, who had always worked for and with the Trump campaign and who never left the campaign, relayed messages to Trump based on this stolen voter database information married to Cambridge Analytica and SCL targeting.
Both Manafort and Trump knew that this targeting information was based on stolen voter databases.
The Alfa Bank server in Trump Tower provided fresh evidence for the granting of the FISA warrant, I reported. (this is a fact). However, the warrant was broader than merely looking at the server metadata. It explicitly covered US persons caught up in the inquiry and explicitly covered the right for the FBI to read intercepts and hear tapes and other materials on US persons, related to this inquiry, already existing and provided by intelligence from a Baltic state ally, which report was Estonia. [Editor – this is a correction from my earlier wrong report of Lithuania].
I believe the Alfa Bank server was sending back to Russia information on the hacked voter databases and how they could be micro-targeted.
Just before the election, Manafort, who worked with Firtash and Alfa Bank, told Trump to go and campaign in Michigan. Public polling showed that Trump had no chance in Michigan.
I believe, in summary:
A Russian spy stole the Facebook data of hundreds of millions of Americans
From that data, Russia crafted propaganda messages via SCL and targeted them by Cambridge Analytica
Both of these were owned by Alfa Bank and Firtash, Russian agent and boss of Manafort;
In order to perfect the social media targeting Russia hacked the electoral voter databases of various key American states:
This information was fed back to Manafort and Cambridge Analytica / SCL via the means of the bank server in Trump Tower;
Manafort and Trump used terrifyingly accurate micro-targeting obtained firstly by Facebook theft but secondly by Russia obtaining the exact demographic profiles of voters through hacks of US state databases and passing it back to Cambridge Analytica.
This theory, if true, would directly connect the Russian state with the Trump campaign and mean that Trump colluded with Russian spies who were hacking America. He will be impeached for it.
There is much more Trump has done, but the Russian voter database hacks —> to Cambridge Analytica —> to SCL “fake news” to target the election —-> with Trump’s knowledge via Manafort – is the single most direct proof of Trump’s collusion with America’s enemies.
Furthermore and as a coda,
I believe, although to what Chris Steele might call a ‘low confidence’ level, that Roger Stone was communicating with Guccifer2 who hacked the DNC and Podesta, and that these releases had not worked. I believe that whoever Stone’s “go-between” to Wikileaks was, that person worked for or with Cambridge Analytica/SCL / Alfa Bank , and that person passed on the message that precise targeting and propaganda would be needed to win the election, hence the hacking of the voter databases and the messaging that went back into them.
I have a pretty strong idea who this person and his backers are, and I shall be passing it to UK intelligence.
Lastly, following our exclusive reporting that Wikileaks is a Russian front who, days before the DNC hack, not only bought Russian servers, but gave their SSL keys to a Russian hacker Peter Chayanov, meaning he could see – and the FSB could see – everything on the Wikileaks site, including the IP address of any foolish Americans “whistleblowing” to Wikileaks (like Chelsea Manning), meaning Putin could blackmail them, I will assume that Chayanov is Guccifer2; that he was collaborating with Stone and Manafort both directly and indirectly; and that he worked with Russian state hackers to attack US voter databases.
And, to quote Jim Carrey in ‘Liar, Liar,’ “That’s the game!”
Now I will list the reporting on which this theory is based. I will address “Moscow Mike Misha Flynn” and the Cambridge University spy ring in another post – I have learned the hard way that too much information just shuts people down (when they don’t have ADHD). But as a snippet, I will say that I believe Jared Kushner and Mike Flynn were both caught talking to Russian spies who worked with Sberbank, the parent company of SVB Bank – the OTHER bank that was a named target of the FISA warrant.
So, if you like, Alfa Bank – which owned Cambridge Analytica and passed info to and from Russia on hacked voter databases, for electoral gain, is the SIGINT part of this theory (Signals intelligence) – and SVB Bank, which funded “startups” through Russian intel front Sberbank, is the HUMINT part of this theory – think Kushner, Mike Flynn and Epshteyn.
Again, Alfa Bank and SVB Bank are the two NAMED TARGETS of the FISA warrant granted on October 15th – one week after US intelligence put out a statement on voter database hacking, on October 7th.
I believe this is why. There was money laundering from these banks – but there was data laundering, too.
FISA warrant granted on these banks (me, HeatStreet, Nov 7th 2016).

Voter databases were hacked by Russia – US Intelligence

Wikileaks handed its SSL keys to Putin’s Hacker Pytor Chayonov – me, for Patribotics
WOW Great work to you all sounds a little like a lower less Technology involved but still another watergate ,but so Manny GOPs involved among others (GET THEM ALL )not fair or right to We the people as I said propaganda can be powerful but add that with all the rest no wonder This is the best an simplest way to explain it. If I want to live under Russian Rule I’ll move to Russia
Thank you Louise. I read something yesterday about Merced owning part of Cambridge Analytica and Alpha Bank/Deutche Bank money laundering. I assume that he also has his hands in data laundering?
Will you please unblock me on Twitter? This is my 2nd request, plus I’ve asked others to ask you (@heidikanter1). I contributed $75 to you when you started to ask for support. I’ve been following you since you wrote your very first blog post here re playing Chess w/ Putin.
Please unblock me!!
I hope you saw I followed you – thank you so much for supporting us!
Anything to tell about Cambridge Analytics and its involvement with Brexit?
Awesome reporting awesome blog!
People talk a lot of shit about Louise, but after reading her tweets with an objective mind, and a cynical perspective, I have come to the conclusion that her “theories” are most often proven to be fact, albeit a long time in between the two.
What a beautiful job of reporting.
I don’t even pretend to know how to thank you for everything you have done. I do thank you, sir.
Please excuse error- “Mame”
On the nose. But just a part of the grand guignol. DeVos/Prince and the Christian slave trade. The hacked RNC emails…. Trump condos.
Here, we either transcend Eurochristian fascism, or we slide back into dark ages.
Democracy must be earned.
