Congressman Trey Gowdy, on the House Intelligence Committee, is funded by PACs which appear also to have funded Russia’s attack on the United States election.
Mr. Gowdy is a former prosecutor who went out of his way to castigate Hillary Clinton for her email server. When Jason Chaffetz illegally revealed the letter James Comey had sent to the heads of the House and Senate intelligence committees, removing the ‘classified’ markings from the portion he tweeted out to the world, Gowdy wrote:
Fiat justitia ruat caelum – May Justice be Done though the Heavens fall.
It is in that noble spirit that Patribotics presents this report.
Trey Gowdy’s main donors are connected directly to Cambridge Analytica, the data company that targeted the US election, washing their Facebook and Twitter targeting with the stolen DNC Vertica database and with state voter rolls that were hacked. They also appear to be connected to direct funding of Democratic voter suppression and to the Kelhios botnet, which I have reported was both sent from command and control servers operating from Trump hotels, and was paid for by Boris Epshteyn on behalf of both Russia and Trump.
Patribotics is very grateful for the support of our readers, which makes this effort possible. If you can help us please donate. There are buttons around the site, or you could make a contribution here.
Mr. Gowdy’s funding also connects the Russian hack and the RICO case on the GOP as a body neatly together.
Gowdy’s main donors for the last two years include Great America PAC, which paid for “online voter contact” to various organizations. These include Media Bridge LLC, World Net Daily and Campaign Solutions:
Media Bridge LLC is, per its website, run by Shane Cory. He also takes responsibility for ‘Renew America PAC’ on Twitter. It hosts Liberty News Now dot com, which has in the past been hosted on what is a known “Command and Control” malware server.
Renew America PAC is ultimately run by the former Republican Senator Alfonse D’Amato, who defended Russian hacking of the election and attacked the intelligence community in an article in December:
Do not be fooled! This is nothing more than a cheap ploy by a couple of bad apples in the CIA and the intelligence community to manipulate what is being reported to the American public…..
It’s about time that someone stood up and criticized the intelligence community for the negligence and disrespect it showed to our elected officials and the American public.
Mr. Backer’s firm, according to the UK’s Telegraph, specializes in taking foreign contributions and hiding them:
…key supporters were prepared to accept illicit donations from foreign backers.
Senior figures involved with the Great America PAC, one of the leading “independent” groups organising television advertisements and grassroots support for the Republican nominee, sought to channel $2 million from a Chinese donor into the campaign to elect the billionaire despite laws prohibiting donations from foreigners.
Great America PAC also spent on Campaign Solutions and on WorldNetDaily for “Online Voter Contact”.
World Net Daily is a fake news pusher. The FBI investigated, on Election Day, for links to Russia, accounts and individuals pushing fake news about the election.
Campaign Solutions worked with Cambridge Analytica when placing targeted ads on behalf of John Bolton; these are Robert Mercer supported entities. Cambridge Analytica is under FBI investigation and the SVB server, which sent its targeting to the Trump Server, was, we report, the subject of a FISA warrant obtained by James Comey on Oct 15, 2016. According to Ad Age, Campaign Solutions began working with this major target of Mueller’s inquiry as far back as 2014:
the PAC and Campaign Solutions first worked with Cambridge Analytica during the 2014 midterms
Furthermore, Trey Gowdy did not merely get a donation from a group that spent on Campaign Solutions. His main contributor, per the FEC, is from his “E Donation 5 Account”. The image of the form shows their mailing address, 117 North St. Asaph St, is the same as that of Campaign Solutions.
Thus, we can say that Trey Gowdy is directly receiving donations from PACs working with the Russian hackers of the US election. Whether Media Bridge LLC – the apparent boss Mr. Cory follows Roger Stone, Russia’s RT.com and Wikileaks on Twitter, and at the time of writing he only follows 153 accounts –
is connected to “Media Bridge United” and “EU Mediabridge”, both registered at the identical P.O. Box as Hostkey, the Russian Wikileaks hosts, remains to be seen, but doubtless Mr. Mueller will have questions. IP registered to these domains pumped out fake news videos laden with malware.
