Exclusive: Trey Gowdy Donor PAC Linked to Russia’s Hack of America

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.

Exclusive: Sources: Paul Manafort’s Secret Florida Storage Facility

Paul Manafort was put under surveillance by the FBI, according to CNN, in a story that confirms much of my earlier reporting on Mr. Manafort. CNN concedes that items were recovered from a storage facility owned by Manafort:

As part of the FISA warrant, CNN has learned that earlier this year, the FBI conducted a search of a storage facility belonging to Manafort. It’s not known what they found.

I had exclusively broken this news on August 5th on Twitter:

This was an addendum to my exclusive report, dated May 31, that Mr. Manafort’s apartment had been searched ‘by consent’ at Trump Tower by U.S. Marshals on Friday, 19th June, as soon as Air Force One went wheels-up taking Trump to Saudi Arabia. I reported then that this search found nothing, but, at the request of sources, did not say why.

I can now add to my reporting that this was because U.S. Marshals and the FBI knew that Mr. Manafort had transferred these items to a storage space he controls in Florida (journalists should note the location is not reported by WSJ). Sources familiar with the matter report the location was thought to be here:

storage.jpg

My own research located this facility as Document Storage Systems, Inc, of Juno Beach in Florida.

It is important to note that the Wall Street Journal has reported that the FBI had a warrant to read ‘electronically stored communications’ or emails after Manafort “left” the Trump campaign.

But armed with a warrant, investigators still could have conducted clandestine surveillance of Mr. Manafort, possibly by obtaining copies of his emails and other electronically stored communications, or by having agents follow him or conduct physical searches of his property.

This reporting tends to confirm my own reporting, namely that agents knew exactly where Manafort was storing paper documents or any electronic items he removed from his apartment. By October 15th, when the FISA warrants on money laundering from the two Russian banks were obtained, which included permission to intercept U.S. persons in relation to the inquiry – Manafort included – the FBI could also hear Mr. Manafort talking.

It is important to note that in saying that agents observed Manafort removing items to Florida, my sources did not exclude the possibility of Manafort having more than one storage space for more than one type of item. There may well have been others in Florida and in other states; but this, my sources reported, was one of them. Clearly the building is marked as a ‘document storage’ facility. Sources also said that electronic items, possibly servers, were removed from Mr. Manafort’s apartment in advance of the ‘by consent’ search on May 19th, and that these items were also stashed in a separate storage facility.

Fun With FISA; The Trump Russia Treason Timeline

I hope in this piece to clear up some confusion relating to the specific FISA warrants that covered Mr. Manafort. In order to get to the good stuff first, I am first providing the FISA warrant timeline for Trump Russia, and then offering analysis as to how I draw the conclusions within it.

The Treason Timeline

All links are my own exclusive reporting, which I hope other journalists will ethically acknowledge, as I they confirm my stories, except where noted in the text.

June: FISA warrant sought and denied on Page, Trump, Manafort and Epshteyn

June 9th: Treasonmeeting in Trump Tower. Exclusive by the New York Times. Paul Manafort’s phone hot-miked by GCHQ. Audio and notes of the meeting recovered and given to CIA and NSA. FBI does not listen, no FISA warrant.

June 24th: Scot 24, the Treasonmeeting 2, takes place in Scotland, where Donald Trump finalizes the details of how Cambridge Analytica will launder hacked data from state voter databases and the DNC’s Vertica databases with AI targeting, in order to win the election. It is the day after Brexit, where Russia and Cambridge Analytica had employed similar techniques in Britain

July 6-8: Carter Page takes tape of Trump promising overturning sanctions for help with hacking to Moscow. There is no FISA warrant on Page in July, but multiple foreign intelligence services, including at least the UK, Ukraine and Germany, had hacked and hot-wired Page’s phone.

July 18-22nd: the GOP Convention. Sergei Kislyak is taped offering dirty Russian money to the entire GOP. Reince Priebus and Paul Ryan are among two of those taped accepting it. The FBI places the entire GOP under a RICO investigation. No FISA warrant is needed for these intercepts as U.S. persons were gathered under “incidental collection”

“Late July”: – James Comey states his counterintelligence campaign into Trump and Russia begins. It is also a criminal inquiry, he says.

Summer: (But on or after late July) The Washington Post exclusively reports that Carter Page is made the subject of a FISA warrant “in the summer”. We cannot say for sure that the warrant was granted in July.

Between late July and October, Carter Page doubtless yielded evidence obtained under FISA that servers from Alfa Bank and SVB Bank are instrumental to the hack on the election. Because no warrant is sought on those banks until mid October.

October 7th: the DNI reports that the Russian state hacked the DNC, and that this was authorized by the highest levels of the Russian government; and that a ‘private Russian company had breached 22 states voter databases.

October 15th: – FISA warrants are granted for “Any US Person” connected to two Russian banks, Alfa and SVB Bank, the latter of which has a deal with Sberbank, suspected of money laundering and financial offenses relating to Trump and Russia

I note with caution, because one author of the Washington Post piece, Ellen Nakashima, has been very wrong before when she uncritically reported as a fact what Mike Pence told her on Mike Flynn – that he was not under FBI investigation – that the Post stated that Page was the only direct FISA named target granted in 2016:

Page is the only American to have had his communications directly targeted with a FISA warrant in 2016 as part of the Russia probe, officials said.

If, and I emphasize IF, the Post was correct on that detail, then Manafort is likely to have been under FISA surveillance based on the two FISA warrants I reported on Nov 7th, concerning SVB Bank and Alfa Bank and their servers’ communications with the Trump Tower and Spectrum Health servers (it was in fact one warrant per bank, I have learned). As a reminder, those warrants were issued for “any US person” in respect of the money laundering offenses ascribed to those two banks.

The October 15th warrant also allowed the FBI to listen for the first time to the intercepts taken by Five Eyes from Manafort’s phone of the Treasonmeeting on June 9th, and to hear the tapes of Carter Page’s meetings in Moscow in early July, provided by friendly foreign intelligence. My story said:

While the Times story speaks of metadata, sources suggest that a FISA warrant was granted to look at the full content of emails and other related documents that may concern US persons….The warrant was sought, [sources] say, because actionable intelligence on the matter provided by friendly foreign agencies could not properly be examined without a warrant by US intelligence as it involves ‘US Persons’ who come under the remit of the FBI and not the CIA.

Donald Trump’s tweets would tend to confirm this theory – that the Manafort FISA surveillance was carried out under the warrant covering “any US person” in respect to the money laundering of two Russian banks – with his breathless tweets of March 3rd, in which he stated that just before “the very sacred election [sic]’ “my phones” were tapped. Mr. Manafort lives in Trump Tower.

Is it legal for a sitting President to be “wire tapping” a race for president prior to an election? Turned down by court earlier. A NEW LOW!

Note that I reported Manafort was on a failed application in June.

How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!

Mr. Trump’s tweets certainly fit with the FISA’s granted on October 15th.

I’d bet a good lawyer could make a great case out of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones in October, just prior to Election!

Let it be noted that Trump was criminally obstructing justice here, revealing evidence in an ongoing criminal case. I had reported the existence of FISA warrants, not what Director Comey did with them. At that time, I had no knowledge of how Director Comey implemented the permission he received from the court, or on whom.

Nov 8th, 2016CNN exclusively reported that on election day, the FBI was monitoring how Russia influenced and orchestrated social media accounts to hack the election, this includes Facebook and Twitter

December 10, 2016The Washington Post exclusively reports that the FBI and the CIA differed to lawmakers over Russia’s motives

During a similar Senate Intelligence Committee briefing held the previous week, the CIA’s statements, as reflected in the letter the lawmakers now held in their hands, were “direct and bald and unqualified” about Russia’s intentions to help Trump, according to one of the officials who attended the House briefing.

The FBI official’s remarks to the lawmakers on the House Intelligence Committee were, in comparison, “fuzzy” and “ambiguous,” suggesting to those in the room that the bureau and the agency weren’t on the same page, the official said.

December 16 – five days later, the Washington Post exclusively reports the FBI is now in agreement with the CIA that Russia was trying to help Trump. The authors blame lawmakers for giving them a false report of what took place in the House Intelligence Committee:

FBI Director James B. Comey and Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr. are in agreement with a CIA assessment that Russia intervened in the 2016 election in part to help Donald Trump win the White House, officials disclosed Friday, as President Obama issued a public warning to Moscow that it could face retaliation.

New revelations about Comey’s position could put to rest suggestions by some lawmakers that the CIA and the FBI weren’t on the same page on Russian President Vladi­mir Putin’s intentions.

Sources familiar with events speculated that yet another FISA warrant may have been obtained in December between the House hearing and the report of the 16th, allowing the FBI to examine the packet data, or messaging, transferred between the Spectrum Health server and SVB and Alfa Bank’s two servers. Because the Spectrum server could have been transmitting health data information, these sources say, legal protections were higher for it than for the Trump Tower server.

As I exclusively reported, the FBI then discovered that the servers were washing money but also data laundering – targeting the hacked state registration, and DNC Vertical databases, with Cambridge Analytica’s chosen propaganda, and their analytics, to help Mr. Trump cheat his way to the White House.

Analysis of FISA and Paul Manafort

In November, 2016, I broke the story of the FBI’s investigation into Trump and Russia, contradicting the New York Times (and I, not the New York Times, was correct).

FBI .jpeg

In that piece, published on the eve of the election, I reported that there was a failed application to the FISA court in June 2016 which named Donald Trump and three of his associates. I later reported exclusively that these names were Boris Epshteyn, Carter Page and Paul Manafort.

fbi fia

Some commentators online have suggested my reporting of November was incorrect because a FISA warrant was later granted on Carter Page. However, they were mistaken. The June application on Manafort, Trump, Page and Epshteyn was denied, since it featured Mr. Trump. Sources familiar with the matter have speculated that the tape of Donald Trump that Carter Page took to Moscow, wherein he discusses changing sanctions policy in return for help with hacking the election, may have been recorded without Trump’s consent at the Mayflower Hotel, when all four men were discussing the matter with Sergei Kislyak, Russia’s then Ambassador to the United States. As I exclusively reported, Mr. Kislyak’s phone was hot-miked throughout by an exploit placed upon it by a Five Eyes nation.

Indeed, James Comey testified in April that his counter-intelligence operation into the Trump campaign began in late July, 2016. Therefore, no FISA warrant allowing the FBI access to US persons in this respect had been granted in June 2016.

COMEY: It’s hard to say because I don’t how much longer it will take. But we’ve been doing this — this investigation began in late July, so for a counterintelligence investigation that’s a fairly short period of time.

Other outlets have reported that Carter Page and Paul Manafort were under prior FISA warrants. However, these warrants need renewal. Because the June application, which included both men along with Epshteyn and Trump was rejected, there was no FISA warrant in place for a Trump-Russia investigation until, per Director Comey, late July.

It may be that FISA warrants were granted on both Page and Manafort in late July; we know one was granted on Page in the summer, because of the Washington Post’s exclusive. Late July would post-date Page’s trip to Moscow with the tape of Trump, and coincides with, or immediately post-dates, the GOP Convention, July 18-21 in Cleveland, Ohio.

I exclusively reported at Patribotics that Sergei Kislyak was hot-miked at the GOP Convention agreeing to wash money into the GOP; that the entire GOP was thereafter under a RICO case, and that Paul Ryan, the Speaker of the House, was on intercepts with Kislyak agreeing to accept dirty Russian money into the campaign. No FISA warrant would have been needed for this recording, as Ambassador Kislyak is a foreign national. The U.S. persons on those tapes were collected under ‘incidental collection’.

It is quite probable therefore that Page certainly, and possibly also Manafort, were directly targeted in a warrant dated “late July” , after the GOP Convention concluded and they were taped with the Ambassador.

Although the next story was reported by me earlier, the event it describes was later – October, 2016. Knowing, from the recordings made of Sergei Kislyak at the Convention, that Trump, Ryan and Reince Priebus had all agreed to accept laundered Russian money to assist in hacking and influencing the election, James Comey then sought FISA warrants on how this was being done – through Alfa Bank, which sent Trump Russia’s money, and SVB Bank, which had its own server, communicating with the Trump and Spectrum Health servers, and which sent the Trump campaign the Cambridge Analytica targeting for the hacked state voter databases, which, I exclusively reported, the Trump and Spectrum servers were washing hourly with Alfa Bank.

I reported that the two FISA warrants on SVB Bank and Alfa Bank granted by FISC to the FBI to surveil ‘any US person’ in conjunction with financial and banking offenses that connected to Russia were granted in October.

the FBI sought, and was granted, a FISA court warrant in October ….

The FISA warrant was granted in connection with the investigation of suspected activity between the server and two banks, SVB Bank and Alfa Bank. However, it is thought in the intelligence community that the warrant covers any ‘US person’ connected to this investigation, and thus covers Donald Trump and at least three further men who have either formed part of his campaign or acted as his media surrogates.

Paul Wood of the BBC later clarified that date as October 15th. Wood also confirmed my reporting that the FISA warrants covered Trump and the three associates I later named as Page, Manafort and Epshteyn:

On 15 October, the US secret intelligence court issued a warrant to investigate two Russian banks….

ultimately, the investigation is looking for transfers of money from Russia to the United States, each one, if proved, a felony offence.

A lawyer- outside the Department of Justice but familiar with the case – told me that three of Mr Trump’s associates were the subject of the inquiry. “But it’s clear this is about Trump,” he said.

McClatchy DC later confirmed Wood’s exclusive that a six-agency financial task force had begun earlier than the FBI’s specific counter-intelligence and criminal investigation; it also confirmed the FISA warrant.

The BBC reported that the FBI had obtained a warrant on Oct. 15 from the highly secretive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court allowing investigators access to bank records and other documents about potential payments and money transfers related to Russia. One of McClatchy’s sources confirmed the report.

Indeed, Mr. Comey appears to have chosen his language carefully. Although he dates a targeted Trump-Russia counterintelligence investigation from July, 2016, which, I presume, was when his first FISA warrant was granted in connection with Trump’s campaign and Russia specifically, his later testimony also said that he became aware of Russians hacking America’s politics in late summer 2015:

BURR: Okay. When did you become aware of the cyber intrusion?

COMEY: The first cyber — there was all kinds of cyber intrusions going on all the time. The first Russian-connected cyber intrusion I became aware of in the late summer of 2015.

I shall have more on what Director Comey described there in a later story.

I have, however, also reported that Mr. Manafort’s phone was hot-miked in an exploit placed upon it by GCHQ (other nations had also hacked Mr. Manafort’s phone) and that not only did it record everything at the Treasonmeeting on June 9th, but that the ‘notes’ on Mr. Manafort’s phone were taken from this exploit and that the FBI and Justice Department have those notes and recordings.

This complements my prior reporting. Until he obtained his FISA warrant in October on the two banks, Director Comey could not listen to the evidence that other US intelligence agencies had heard long before.

However (again), I reported exclusively in the spring that at least six FISA warrants had been granted in Trump-Russia. Sources close to the matter indicate that at the Treasonmeeting, the Russians present used the word ‘adoption’ as fairly obvious code for ‘sanctions’.

CNN’s story may inadvertently mislead readers, although it is correct in its reporting as written. It states:

The FBI wasn’t listening in June 2016, the sources said, when Donald Trump Jr. led a meeting that included Manafort, then campaign chairman, and Jared Kushner, the President’s son-in-law, with a Russian lawyer who had promised negative information on Hillary Clinton.

That is precisely right, but GCHQ and other allied nations were listening, and once a broader FISA warrant was obtained, this recorded evidence was passed to the FBI. The notes taken from Mr. Manafort’s phone were also obtained from this same exploit. Precisely like Sergei Kislyak, Paul Manafort, had he only known it, was ‘wearing a wire’ throughout the 2016 campaign. The FBI only reviewed that evidence once a FISA warrant covering Manafort was obtained. CNN’s story says of the audio that exists in that respect:

Two of these sources, however, cautioned that the evidence is not conclusive.

I am not sure whether CNN’s sources have filled them in on, or are aware, of the entire picture. But I note that in December – which is after October, as the eagle-eyed among you will note – the FBI suddenly appeared to “change its mind” over whether Russian hacking into the election, propaganda warfare, and so on, was done to benefit Donald Trump directly.  Having not joined the CIA and NSA in their assessment of this, the FBI suddenly turned around and said “Yes, we agree the Russians were trying to help Donald Trump”.

This is because, sources with knowledge believe, without certainty, that a further FISA warrant was obtained in December for the FBI to examine evidence the NSA had provided on encrypted communications, passed by iodine Xfer transfer, between the Russian bank servers and servers within Trump Tower and Spectrum Health, the company connected to Betsy De Vos and her brother Erik Prince. That was a refinement of the October warrant, because a health care company was used by the traitors since health data has high levels of protection under US law. To examine the packets – what was being sent to Moscow – the FBI had to demonstrate to the FISC court, which they successfully did in December, that what was being sent back and forth was not in fact ‘health data’ on Americans, but rather was encrypted messages between the traitors of the Trump campaign and their paymasters in Moscow.

As soon as that FISA warrant was granted, and James Comey was able legally to read the messages that the CIA and NSA already knew about, the FBI “suddenly” changed its mind on Russia’s intentions with Trump. As I reported on Nov 7th, 2016, when breaking the story of the FBI’s investigation into Trump and Russia, Director Comey was always concerned from the start of his work to ensure that criminal prosecutions had a basis of evidence that was legally obtained and legally read by the FBI.

 

The Curious Case of the March for Truth And The Bulgarian Hacker

Social media and its use by American traitors working for Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin is suddenly a hot topic in the mainstream media.

Here I present a short report that is not based on sources, but rather on open-source intelligence, or OSINT, that readers may verify for themselves with links I shall provide in the text. This is offered as a raw intelligence report and I cannot draw a definite conclusion from the facts I report here, other than to suggest it is worth a look by investigators into social media efforts to influence American conversation online.

There appears to be an odd commonality among various ‘Resistance’ groups that ostensibly oppose Donald Trump, and do not admit to being linked to each other.

There also appears to be a commonality between at least one node on this graph, and websites owned and run by General Mike Flynn, who, along with his son, is being investigated for treason with Russia.

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. 

The common factor in these cases is that, at one time or another, websites registered by these various entities appear to have shared hosting by a very obscure provider located in Bulgaria.

The second commonality is that sites owned by an admin connected to General Mike Flynn’s company, and ‘Resistance’ sites, shared hosting by a particular block run out of Wasilla, Alaska, and owned by Level 3 Communications, an internet giant.

Despite the fact that Level 3 Communications is indeed a giant provider, the specific block located in Wasilla, Alaska, on which the ‘Resistance’ and Flynn-linked websites were both hosted, was very small, and hosted a mere handful of sites.

I will also report on the reaction from ostensibly anti-Trump persons and accounts to my questions over these shared hosting links.


Different ‘Resistance’ Accounts and Groups Share an Obscure Host

This blog exclusively broke the news both that Wikileaks had obtained Russian servers a week before the release of the DNC’s emails, and that Julian Assange had provided the SSL keys to Wikileaks to that company, Hostkey, run by the Russian hacker and spammer Peter Chayanov.

I asked the author of the first piece, Laurelai Bailey, a data scientist, to make her work understandable to a general audience and not to include too many technical details. She and I were nonetheless bombarded by friends of Russia online looking to rubbish her entirely accurate work.

This blog also exclusively broke the news, again, in a piece by Laurelai Bailey, that Sean Spicer had tweeted out what most people would think of as a bitcoin password. The technical term is, I am told, “identity confirmation code”, but again, I asked Laurelai to use simple terms non-techies would get. Her (entirely correct) work again brought on a lot of abuse.

One man that brought himself to my attention was Christopher Bouzy, on Twitter. He wrote a rebuttal piece, and tweeted a lot of demonstrably wrong denials, such as “You cannot wash money through a botnet” [sic].

I was surprised by Mr. Bouzy’s vehemence and started to look at his Twitter account and thereafter the registrations on his websites.

This Host Links ‘The Resistance’, Bitcoin Expert Bouzy, And A 9/11 Conspiracy Theorist

One of Mr. Bouzy’s websites, since deleted, was hosted with a Bulgarian hacker, Marian Marinov. The site was called ‘Bycdns. com’.

I was struck to find that ostensibly ‘Resistance’ websites, which by rights should have no connection with each other, had also used this provider as a host at one time or another.

The fake Twitter account @RoguePotusStaff had pushed a website listed by ‘March for Truth’, a verified Twitter account.

potus winning .jpeg

Rogue POTUS was fond of slamming James Comey while saying ‘POTUS is winning’ and pushing a coordinated line of despair about America and the Trump Russia investigation.

msrThe website was ‘TellYourReps .com’. (I am not providing direct links to the websites as I fear they may carry malware.)

rogue1

Now this site, Tell Your Reps. com, was also hosted by the identical Bulgarian provider. Rather suspiciously, it was being promoted by a troll Russian account that had previously promoted Tulsi Gabbard’s support of Assad, and the website was registered on June 24th, 2016 the date of the Trump-Russia second Treasonmeeting in Scotland, where, we have reported, Russia and Trump did the deal to undermine America’s elections and voting system in exchange for help with hacking.

Finally, a third website that ought to have no connection to Mr. Bouzy or to ‘March for Truth’ wound up on this provider as well. WhoWhatWhy dot com, the site founded by the anti-Bush conspiracy theorist Russ Baker, was at one time also hosted by Mr. Marinov’s company.

[Russ Baker’s book] Family of Secrets contends that the first President Bush became an intelligence agent in his teenage years and was later at the center of a plot to assassinate Kennedy that included his father, Prescott Bush, Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson, CIA Director Allen Dulles, Cuban and Russian exiles and emigrants, and various Texas oilmen.[1] It asserts that Bob Woodward of The Washington Post was an intelligence agent who conspired with John Dean to remove President Richard Nixon from office for opposing the oil depletion allowance.[1]

Baker “is not willing to rule out the possibility that the bombings were a false-flag operation conducted or permitted by elements of the American government in order to justify the Homeland Security complex.” He argues that FBI recruited the Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev as an agent or informant, which the FBI has categorically denied.[4][27]

In March 2010, he appeared before the “Treason in America Conference,” a gathering of Sept. 11 truthers. … Baker “sounded open to the possibility that 9/11 was an inside job.”[4]

 

Mr. Baker has connections to Russia, having appeared on RT.com, the channel run by Russian intelligence, who have recently registered under FARA.

WhoWhatWhy is, therefore, a strange bedfellow, ostensibly, for the ‘March For Truth’ and that in turn is a strange bedfellow for Mr. Bouzy.

Malware Dropping IPs

Lastly, I note that many of the IPs on which each of these sites have been hosted are listed as malware droppers.

Links Between Mr. Bouzy’s Sites, General Mike Flynn, And Russian Botnets

As Patribotics has exclusively reported, General Mike Flynn is under investigation for co-ordinating Russia’s attack on the entire West through social media.

As we have also exclusively reported, the Kelhios botnet was run out of command and control servers operating from Trump Hotels, and Peter Levashov, the indicted hacker, was paid by Team Trump.

Now I can report a further link between all three of these. It is a server out of Wasilla, Alaska, run by Level 3 Communications, a giant provider. The host itself is however discrete, and fairly small, with 256 addresses in that specific block.

  1. Mike Flynn’s website was hosted there

General Flynn was on the advisory board of a paid group ‘The Intelligence Community’. It featured Naveed Jamali, my source for my FISA story, as an ‘OSINT Analyst’.

intel1 intel 2

One of the sites it owned and registered was “OSINT maps dot com“. This site was hosted  on Level 3’s Wasilla, Alaska server.

Osint ip

I am told that this IP address was “being used as a command and control server for known malware”. Thank you General Flynn!

2. Mr. Bouzy’s website, Charmzi dot com, was hosted there:charmzi .jpeg

This *former* IP of Charmzi is, I am told, presently acting up:  “8.5.1.33 is participating in malicious activity, and is confirmed to be hosting exploit code, malware, trojans, spyware and other malicious tools”.

3. Dante Jimenez, who is listed as running  Russian botnets on Spamhaus, had a website that was hosted there: clickmailer.jpeg

Now, as Mr. Jimenez is listed by Spamhaus as the fourth worst spammer in the world today, this may be thought to be quite the coincidence. A sub speciality of his is “providing hosting to Russian drug botnet spammers”.

Mr. Bouzy’s Reaction to Questions About His Website Hosts

I draw no firm conclusions but note the odd coincidence. One thing that does raise alarms, though, is Mr. Bouzy’s reaction when I asked him about his hosting, both with Marian Marinov and with Level 3 in Wasilla.

I asked him:

I’m going to write up your Marian Marinov hosting. Any comment as to why you use Get Clouder and Bulgarian hackers, same as Rogue / Baker?

He replied:

Louise, unlike the other people you lie about, I will seek legal action against you. I was born and raised in NYC…and all it will take is just a phone call to keep you tied up in court for the next several years. And I promise you I will not be alone. There will be several others willing to seek legal action as well. The last time I made you a promise, over 14 outlets wrote about you and your fake news, and that just took a couple of quick emails. So, do not start something you are not willing to finish…because I am not the one. I suggest you go back to writing fake news about Trump, and leave me out of your nonsense.

A twitter ally of mine then asked him:

So, you’re admitting to organizing a coordinated effort to discredit because your domains were linked to a Bulgarian hacker? How interesting

Mr. Bouzy replied:

I am admitting that 5 minutes of my time resulted in journalists focusing on Louise. Now imagine what I will do if I devote more of my time.

Naturally I was rather interested to learn that Mr. Bouzy claimed to have emailed journalists to coordinate smears on me and my work. I shall be exploring this claim with the organizations and my lawyers once Trump is indicted. I do not know if he was telling the truth about the pieces he claimed to have organized, but his claims included articles, which he helpfully counted out for me, in the week of May 21st. These included the Australian, Salon, Business Insider, Mediaite, and others. 4 articles

Mr. Bouzy had threatened me on May 17th with the ominous threat “winter is coming” which he was good enough to repeat to me on this occasion:

Despite Bouzy’s threats to repeat this smear campaign in the press and his repeated statements that “Winter is coming”

If scared = amused and entertained by you and Louise, than you are correct. But like I once told Louise, Winter is coming

I have nonetheless reported on his hosting arrangements, which appear to me to merit further scrutiny.

I did warn her Winter is coming… More articles are on the way. She is getting trumped. 🙂

Mr. Bouzy was right in one regard. I did indeed persist, mostly because everything I have reported, including the Bitcoin/Spicer article Bouzy jumped in to attack, is true.

Fox News Under FBI Counterintelligence Investigation

Sources with links to the justice department report that Fox News is under an FBI counterintelligence investigation for co-ordinating with the Kremlin in broadcasting propaganda.

While the First Amendment guarantees freedom of speech and journalistic freedom, sources say that signals intelligence gathered from so-called ‘incidental collection,’ such as NSA collection on Sputnik and Russia Today,  which is ongoing.

Specifically, Sean Hannity is on signals intelligence co-ordinating his pro-Trump message with organs of the Russian state, such as RT, Sputnik, Wikileaks and Julian Assange. However, emails co-ordinating messaging with registered agents of the Russian state are said to exist from more shows than that of Sean Hannity.

Furthermore, sources familiar with the matter say that the FBI is actively considering a referral to the FCC, in addition to any criminal prosecutions that may result for individuals not registering under FARA for coordinating with official agents of the Russian state.

A great many of Fox News’ employees, anchors and executives have reported fearlessly on Trump and Russia, including Shep Smith. The problems appear to be executive based and systemic, these sources say, and a referral to the FCC is being considered. The First Amendment protects journalistic freedom, but systemic and repeated coordination with official organs of the Russian state is regarded as knowing collaboration with an enemy attack on America. Referral to the FCC is an option under consideration at a corporate level, sources report, and prosecutions for chief malicious actors, in particular Sean Hannity, are probable, these sources say.

EXCLUSIVE: Eric Schneiderman Had Donald Trump Under State Surveillance

FISA is not the only fruit.

Sources with links to New York State justice and law enforcement report that Eric Schneiderman, the Attorney General of New York State, had Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr, Eric Trump, and Ivanka Trump, under legal direct surveillance for some time at state level on an Enterprise Corruption case against Russian mobsters.

‘People are only looking at FISA. They forgot state law,’ one source said, speaking on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the matters discussed.

The RICO case – specifically, ‘Enterprise Corruption’, the name given in New York state law, formed the basis of the existing sealed indictment against Donald Trump presently at the Eastern District Court of Virginia. FISC retains some jurisdiction, but what precisely, sources did not specify.

The way in which Attorney General Schneiderman’s state case became a Federal indictment was reported exclusively by me at Patribotics. RICO and Enterprise Corruption cases are typically principally on financial and other crimes such as money laundering, corruption and so forth. However, in this case, there were also national security implications, which is why FISC took jurisdiction of the case from Schneiderman once it was determined that it touched upon Federal issues. Mr. Schneiderman dismissed his case at state level in order that his evidence should form the basis of a federal case. As a state Attorney General, Schneiderman did not need a judge’s permission to do this.

The existence of the sealed indictment against Donald Trump was reported by Claude Taylor and me exclusively for Patribotics.

There will be more on this breaking story later today.

 

Exclusive: GCHQ Has Recordings of Donald Trump Jr and Kushner’s Russia Meeting

Sources with links to the Five Eyes intelligence communities report that the entire meeting that Donald J Trump Jr and Jared Kushner took with Russian intelligence over Hillary Clinton’s hacked emails is on tape. Multiple recordings and transcripts exist. At least one set of these is in the hands of British intelligence at GCHQ.

It is presumed but not known for certain, therefore, that US intelligence would already have these recordings.

Patribotics hopes to expand reporting. If you can, please donate and support our work. There are buttons around the site, or you could make a contribution here. 

The Five Eyes agreement prohibits the United Kingdom both from surveilling Americans without judicial permission from the US and from conducting surveillance operations on American soil. However, exploits allowing the phones of every Russian national at the meeting to be used as a “hot mike”, in other words, to record what those around them are saying, had already been placed on the phones of the Russian intelligence agents and assets present. This excludes Boris Epshteyn, who although he is an FSB agent and a long-term Russian asset, these sources say, is also a U.S. citizen.  Mr. Epshteyn, through lawyers, has adamantly denied that he is an FSB agent and has demanded Patribotics remove reporting on him. Although I have updated my stories to reflect his denials, I stand by my reporting. Mr. Epshteyn’s lawyers declined, in writing, to say whether or not he had been advised by the FBI or law enforcement to register under FARA, the Foreign Agents Registration Act, instead asking me who my sources were and when I received my information from them, questions to which I in turn have refused to respond.

The resulting recordings form a complete record of the meeting. If, as must be assumed, British intelligence has passed them to their American counterparts, the evidence would be fully legal as any Americans on tape would be “incidental collection” to the targeting of the Russian spies Kushner, Trump Jr and Epshteyn met with in order to commit espionage against the integrity of a US election with a foreign power.
