EXCLUSIVE: Director Comey Legally Taped Calls, Meetings With Trump

EXCLUSIVE: Sources with links to the Justice Department confirm that U.S. intelligence has legal copies of all Donald Trump’s “tapes” of his meetings with Director Comey – and that Comey had his own phone legally hacked in order to record suspects, including Trump, Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr, for over a year.

On June 9th, in the United States District Court of the Eastern District of New York, Judge Orenstein slapped down Jeff Sessions as he attempted to force the service provider on James Comey’s phone to assist Sessions with continuing an SS7 exploit placed there by the consent of James Comey, and lawfully, in order to help Comey in his criminal investigation of Donald Trump and Russia.

Separate sources with links to the intelligence and justice communities are clear that the ‘witness’ in this case is James Comey, the ‘software solution’ is the SS7 exploit used on his phone by consent, and that his phone was recording, again, by consent, and as part of a lawful criminal investigation that included Donald Trump, all his conversations for well over a year. This would mean that the FBI had essentially used Director Comey’s cell phone to monitor suspects in the Trump Russia case since before the beginning of June, 2016. This is very, very bad news for Mr. Trump.  If Trump, as he is openly threatening, prepares to fire Special Counsel Mueller, parts of these tapes may be leaked to the general public. The court case itself, with the names of the witness and his cell phone provider redacted, is open, public record, but sources linked to the intelligence community have confirmed the witness to be Director Comey, giving the document an extraordinary significance.

First we can see that the ‘hot mike’ phone was provided to Director Comey by Federal Agents, in or before the summer of 2016, as part of a criminal investigation, and in order to assist him in that investigation:

As part of an investigation into suspected criminal activity, the government has secured the agreement of the Witness to engage in monitored communications with subjects of the investigation. Beginning over a year ago, agents provided the Subject Telephone to the Witness, who in turn provided written consent to the interception and recording of all calls made and received over that device

Second, we can see that Director Comey had renewed his written consent on this ‘several months later’ and again just two days before Trump fired him. The day after this consent was renewed, Comey interviewed Donald Trump Jr and Eric Trump about the Kelhios botnet operating out of Trump Tower, which they both had knowledge of.  This conversation too was legally recorded and likely was the immediate spur for Trump to obstruct justice by firing Comey.

The Witness again provided written consent to the monitoring of the Subject Telephone several months later, and then did so a third time two days ago; in this most recent writing, according to the government, the Witness again committed “not [to] allow third parties to use the telephone.” Id. at 7 & Ex. A.3

It is clear that the government, by which we mean Jeff Sessions, submitted to the court that he needed help finding out how Director Comey’s cell phone had been monitored as the “software based solution” (ie, the SS7 hot mike of the phone) had been discontinued. Intelligence sources familiar with the matter were scornful of the idea that the consensual monitoring of Director Comey’s phone would be continued after he was fired for investigating Trump’s sons and the Kelhios botnet used in Russia’s hack of the U.S. election. (In point of fact, sources laughed aloud at the suggestion).

Until recently, the agents consensually monitored the Subject Telephone’s communications and location by using “a software-based solution” that did not require the Provider’s participation. Id. at 7 n.6. The government reports that the latter product was recently “discontinued” without explaining how that discontinuance renders the product it was already using ineffective (although I assume that it must be so).

The translation of this passage is that intelligence agents who consensually hacked the phone switched off their exploit the second Trump fired Comey, and Jeff Sessions was whining to the court that he could not get back in.

In the dry language of the ruling, judge Orenstein told Sessions that Comey was using this exploit to investigate a crime and that hacking his phone without consent was completely unnecessary. He told Sessions to go and boil his head.

The third discretionary factor is necessity. In N.Y. Tel. Co., the Supreme Court observed that “without the Company’s assistance there is no conceivable way in which the surveillance authorized by the District Court could have been successfully accomplished.” 434 U.S. at 175. The record before me shows no such necessity. The government has demonstrated only that for over a year, it was able to monitor the Witness’s communications over the Subject Telephone without the Provider’s assistance, and that the particular product it used to do so has been discontinued. It has not asserted, much less established, that there are no other alternatives available that will allow it to accomplish its investigative goal without forcing the Provider to furnish technical assistance against its will. The complete lack of any showing of necessity weighs heavily against the government.

The front-facing of Director Comey’s identity to Patribotics may be taken as a warning shot on Mueller. As I have previously reported, Donald Trump is under a criminal indictment, and Director Comey decided he himself might need to be fired in order to advance the narrative away from himself and towards Donald Trump’s criminal actions. Sources report the Articles of Impeachment being considered by the Judiciary Committee have now advanced further and the language of them is presently being worked upon for presentation to Congress, at which point, the criminal indictment granted against Trump will be made public.

Come for the Bishop, best not miss.

Comey Day Cometh – Here’s What to Expect

James Comey is about to lay the smack down on Donald Trump. But it is important that patriotic Americans have an understanding of what may happen at a select committee hearing – given the appalling level of misunderstanding of Admiral Rodgers testimony yesterday.

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. 

Obstruction of Justice – Reality

James Comey has clearly described obstruction of justice. He has described in terms Trump asking him to back off the Flynn investigation and demanding loyalty.

Obstruction of Justice – Trump Spin

James Comey doesnt say “obstruction of justice” so it didn’t happen.

In the hearing, do not expect James Comey to say ‘obstruction of justice’ happened. That is a judgement call.

Is Trump Under Investigation – Reality

Comey’s testimony letter shifts tenses. It states that at first Trump was not under investigation. However it also clearly says that Comey fully anticipated that this might change, and warned Trump against it. The shifting tenses of the past in the later parts of the memo imply that Trump was under investigation by the time he was dismissed.

Is Trump Under Investigation – Trump Spin

The Trump camp is trying to lie and spin that Comey early on saying that Trump himself was not under investigation at the start of his interactions means that he is not being investigated now, or that he will not be. This is a plain lie.

In the hearing, do not expect Director Comey to breach any classified protocols which would include stating that Trump is under investigation.

Did Admiral Rogers Excuse Trump – Reality

Hell no, he did not. He GLOMARed a message on National Security. Rogers is NSA – like Coats, his function is NATIONAL SECURITY.  Trump could not have “obstructed justice” by leaning on Rogers, but would have interfered with a national security investigation. This matter is, itself, a matter of National Security.

ONLY the FBI has a twin intelligence and law enforcement function. Obstruction of justice is inherent in Trump’s intervention with James Comey only.

Did Admiral Rogers Excuse Trump – Trump Spin

Trumpers were stupid enough to think that Rogers covered for Trump. He went silent on him like a submarine slipping behind the baffles of its quarry. As senior NSA John Schindler wrote in an exclusive, Rogers has issued an unprecedented ‘preserve evidence’ order and has held town halls at the NSA describing election hacking.

James Comey is, as I wrote in January, America’s white knight. He is a master chess player. He is not interested in Twitter plaudits. He will not give away anything on an ongoing criminal and national security investigation. He will describe facts – HOW Trump obstructed justice – and not make characterizations – “Trump obstructed justice”.

Nothing can stop the impeachment of Donald Trump that is presently ongoing. Comey is here today to stop the lies of Trump and his White House flunkies.

 

EXCLUSIVE: Devin Nunes Has Top Secret Clearance Revoked

Sources with links to the intelligence community report that Devin Nunes, the former leader of the Russia inquiry, and Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee* has had his TS/SCI clearance revoked.

As we reported in April, Nunes obstructed justice when, in collusion with Michael Ellis, his former lawyer on the Intelligence Committee, he blurted out evidence in an ongoing criminal case.

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. 

As we also reported, this evidence included revealing one White House staffer, Boris Epshteyn, was still under investigation. From that report:

sources stated Epshteyn was named to the FISA court in June as a target, but – and I re-emphasize this point – that application was denied by the court.

Knowing the above, his departure from the White House after two epic failures by Devin Nunes, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, is not, I believe, a coincidence. Mr. Epshteyn has not been indicted (as far as I know) still less convicted of any crime. But it seems fairly obvious to me that Nunes is obstructing justice in plain sight

Mr. Nunes still retains a security clearance, sources say. But he has been denied access to the most sensitive intelligence information. This is an extraordinary situation for a member of the House Intelligence Select Committee and reflects appallingly on Paul Ryan and on the House Oversight Committee, respectively the elected official and the Republican-led Committee responsible for ensuring the integrity of Congress.

In a later story we also reported exclusively that sources with links to the intelligence community said that Boris Epshteyn paid hackers from the Kelhios botnet on behalf of both the FSB, of which, these sources say, he is an agent, and Donald Trump. We will expand on this reporting later today. Mr. Epshteyn has emphatically denied he is an FSB agent. He has refused to answer our questions as to whether he is a registered agent of influence of the Russian state under FARA. Our report has been updated to reflect Mr. Epshteyn’s denials. Nevertheless, we continue to report what we have been told on the matter by sources with links to the intelligence community.

*correction – Mr. Nunes formerly led the House Intelligence Committee’s Russia inquiry. He is still (disgustingly) its Chairman, as tweeps have pointed out.

EXCLUSIVE: Federal Marshals Execute Seizure Warrants At Trump Tower

Donald Trump Sealed Indictment Started With Eric Schneiderman

 

Naveed Jamali Tweets He Was a Source on the FISA Warrant Story

On Nov 7th, the eve of the election, I published at Heat Street a detailed story on a FISA warrant* granted against two Russian banks.

This story was a world exclusive. It was also given to me just before the election and published when it could make no real difference to the outcome.

What it could do, however, was warn bad actors involved with the two banks that they were now under investigation by the FBI. At the time of reporting, I did not even myself understand exactly what a FISA warrant meant, nor its extreme secrecy.

The FISA warrant was confirmed by Paul Wood of the BBC in a lengthy and detailed exclusive on Russia two months later.

As a journalist I will always protect my sources. If, however, a source wishes to broadcast publicly that they were a source, that is a freedom of speech, first amendment issue that is up to them.

Even under pressure, and after quarreling with Mr. Jamali, I have never revealed him as a source. Had he not decided to tweet that he was a source, I would remain under that obligation today.

I stood up my story with a second source whose identity is unknown to Mr. Jamali. The journalist Lloyd Grove at the Daily Beast, who wrote a hit piece on me attempting to debunk the FISA and Trump Russia stories, just before Director Comey admitted Trump was being investigated, said to me he needed to “put it to me” that the former CIA agent and hero Evan McMullin was a source, because that is what Naveed Jamali told him. Jamali has also repeatedly tweeted that my source was the 20 year veteran of the NSA John Schindler.

Both of those allegations are total lies. They are the more dishonorable, because Mr. Jamali knows perfectly well that he himself was a FISA warrant source.

Last week, Jamali misread one of my tweets, in which I denied that Evan McMullin was a source of mine. Mr. McMullin has never been a source of mine on any story whatsoever, for the avoidance of doubt. He is a patriot, who would no sooner leak classified intelligence than he would fly to the moon.

The FISA court operates in secrecy. After a Presidential election, there is a transition team with access to its information. Before the election, there are fewer people with access. Mr. Jamali is (I think) still a reservist in Naval intelligence. He was highly unlikely to have had access to the detailed information that I published on November 7th. He told me, for this story, who his own sources were. I have described whom Jamali alleged told him his information in a formal report to the FBI. (I believe that allegation to be sensitive and will not publish it. ) I could not, and would not, have been able to make this report, without his actual public admission on Twitter, which released me from my obligation of confidentiality towards him.

Previously, Jamali had tweeted that he began talking to me about the FISA court in the summer (false) but that he had passed on ‘rumor’.  This would seem to be not legal for a serving reservist in intelligence, but Jamali tweeted that this is what he had done.

Mr. Grove, for his Daily Beast piece, said to me that Jamali had said he was my source but described it as ‘gossip and rumor’. At around that time, Jamali was admitting only to often talking to me about FISA in the summer, however, and was, in essence, denying he was the source for the story.  It is a matter of public record, as I told Grove, that if Jamali was (as he earlier claimed) passing on ‘gossip and rumor’ about FISA in the summer, that I did not publish such ‘gossip and rumor’. The date on my story, which is detailed, accurate, and which has since been verified by the BBC, is November 7th – the eve of the election, and far away in time from ‘the summer’.

No matter what revolting disinformation was being pushed on McMullin and Schindler, nonetheless, I was not going to reveal a source who did not choose to be revealed, at any price. However, Mr. Jamali misread a tweet in which I denied Evan McMullin was my source. Jamali thought that, instead, I had denied that HE was my source, and did one of his patented emoticons as he insisted that I should give him his full props for being a ‘double agent’ and a FISA warrant source. Mr. Jamali has never been an agent of either America or of Russia, but when he insists that he was a source for my FISA warrant story, I am certainly happy enough to validate his public tweeting on that matter.

Mike Flynn’s Treason Tour: Global Russian Propaganda Coordinated With Trump

Sources linked to the intelligence community say that General Mike Flynn’s trips to Cambridge and across Europe will form a key part of Donald Trump’s impeachment and the prosecutions of dozens of his associates.

According to several sources within the intelligence community, Michael Flynn was co-ordinating, with and for Russian agents, the drafting of messages that Vladimir Putin was using to attack democracy in not only the United States, but across Europe. Furthermore, Flynn was doing this with the full knowledge of the Trump campaign, including Donald Trump himself.

This news directly relates to the data laundering performed by the Alfa Bank server on behalf of Donald Trump and Russia, where, as I reported, the Trump campaign colluded with the hacking of both the DNC and state voter databases.

The Alfa Bank server ‘washed’ that data together to tell Trump where to target it, sources say. But the messages and content with which targets were served was co-ordinated with Russia by General Flynn.

Furthermore, Flynn took the same hacking tools and artificial intelligence coded in Russia and helped far-right and Nazi parties across Europe use it in their own nations. Intelligence sources assert that multiple NATO partners have evidence of this and that it has been provided to the FBI.

If ‘data laundering’ is the first part of the Trump Russia incontrovertible evidence, ‘propaganda targeting’ is the second part. Flynn attacked not only the United States but all her Western allies on Russia’s behalf, with the full knowledge and connivance of Donald Trump.

Both halves of the social media impeachment will, sources assert, be key to Director Comey’s overall case. This is the ‘incontrovertible evidence’ to which Sir Richard Dearlove and others have referred.

Explaining Data Laundering and Fake News

The broad case of Russia’s hacking the US election can be divided into two relatively simple spheres. There is another branch of the criminal investigation that focuses on money-laundering and corrupt payments from Russia and Russian satellites to Mr. Trump and to his allies. But the actual hacking of the US election follows a relatively simple narrative line in two halves; hacking and targeting. Mr. Flynn’s activities spanned the two and link them to Russian active measures all across Europe, including the current attack on the French election.

As I previously reported in an exclusive story on this blog, the Trump server at Cendyn was communicating to Alfa Bank in Russia hacked data from state voter databases and the DNC’s own voter targeting engine, Vertica. The precise combination of these two databases allowed Cambridge Analytica and SCL both to create Russian-directed propaganda and target it at voting groups with extraordinary precision. Intelligence sources now tell me that SVB bank, the second bank named in the FISA warrant I exclusively reported on Nov 7th, was also involved in messaging Alfa Bank. There will be further explanation of that in another post.

The technology behind Cambridge Analytica’s targeting was stolen from Facebook by Alexander Kogan, who has gone to Singapore and renamed himself Alex Spectre. In many ways, the Trump-Russia story begins and ends at Cambridge University. Dimtry Firtash, the corrupt Russian oligarch who is Paul Manafort’s patron, gave Cambridge £6 million pounds  since 2010. With that money evidently came a large ring of Russian spies, probably including Kogan.

Fake news in the 2016 election was not, in fact, fake news. It was real propaganda, coordinated and paid for by the Russian state. General Flynn was actively involved on Russia’s behalf, sources say, with discussing how this propaganda could be used and targeted across Europe and elsewhere, as well as in Donald Trump’s campaign.

Sir Richard Dearlove, the former head of MI6, told the Financial Times that he and other British former spies had left a dining club at Cambridge – a club to which Flynn belonged – because of concerns about Russian intelligence penetrating it. General Flynn had been a regular attendee, the story said. It added that British intelligence was extremely concerned about some ‘startups’ in Cambridge being Russian intelligence, notably Veruscript.

Sir Richard and his colleagues suspect that Veruscript — a newly established digital publishing house that has provided funding to set up a new journal of intelligence and to cover some of the seminar’s costs — may be acting as a front for the Russian intelligence services

The story did not get much attention in the America MSM, but I recognise the worthy papers an intelligence veteran in the UK might use to front-face something for reporters. (If Sir Richard is reading this report I do hope he will consider giving it to me next time. I could have told him firewalls = death for dissemination).

The Guardian followed this up with a story about a probable woman FSB agent or asset at Cambridge, to whom General Flynn, who is as vain as he is stupid, had signed billets-doux marked “General Misha”, the Russian word for Mike.

In Cambridge, intelligence sources say, Flynn was meeting with not only those who had coded the technology but Russian spies talking about the propaganda it should distribute.

However, Flynn did not stop there. With the full knowledge of both Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, “General Misha” continued his Nazi “tour of Europe”, with meetings both in Europe and of the EU far right at Trump Tower, discussing how the Russian propaganda of SCL could be targeted directly in their countries in order to swing their elections. Notably, Flynn was caught with the head of the far-right party in Austria. This man was  then invited by Donald Trump to the inauguration. Other far-right Russian allies invited to the inauguration, or who came to meet Trump Russia associates at Trump tower, and who were assisted by the Russian botnet and Russian propaganda, include Marine Le Pen and Nigel Farage.

Sir Richard and US sources have indicated to the Guardian newspaper that Director Comey has direct and incontrovertible evidence that Donald Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia. This relates to the FISA warrant that I reported on November 7th and my April 1st report (which I had previously published as a theory) that the AlfaBank server was laundering two hacked databases together for targeting – the DNC’s own and the voter registration databases. However, the other parts of that evidence, I can report today, involve General Flynn’s discussions with Russian spies and the EU far-right on how they could use similar technology to hack and target Russian active measures in their own country.

In this scenario, it is easy to see that “Honest Misha” Flynn thought of himself as the leading commander for Russia’s attack on the West.

flt1.jpgThe Microchip Russian Botnet Worked in America With Flynn and Flynn Jr – And Guido Lombardi

How the Magax3 Pac, “Microchip” and the Russian botnet worked directly with Donald Trump and Mike Flynn under the aegis of Russian intelligence

If Peter Chayanov, (one of his many names), is the hacking villain of Trump-Russia, as I have previously reported, the ‘Microchip’ persona is the targeting villain of the piece.

Exclusively on Patribotics by Laurelai Bailey, we broke the story that one week before the DNC emails were published, Wikileaks bought two full servers located in Russia.

Next, we broke the story, based on what I have called COSINT – crowdsourced, open-source intelligence – that Wikileaks had actually handed their SSL keys to Chayanov and therefore to Putin. What that means in layman terms is that the Russian dictator can now see the IP addresses of anybody reading Wikileaks, (helpful with targeting propaganda at them, as he sees what stories they are reading), and also the IP addresses used now or in the past by any donors to Wikileaks – of money or leaks. That means Putin can blackmail whistleblowers from the US military and elsewhere into becoming his spies. 

I further reported, based on intelligence sources that it was Chayanov’s company Hostkey that US intelligence determined hacked the state voter databases (named in their October 7th statement as ‘a Russian company’). Because the USIC named Wikileaks as a Russian government actor in that same statement, and because Chayanov holds Wikileaks SSL keys and servers, USIC now knows, if it did not before, that the Russian government hacked the state voter databases. The motherlode of the DNC leaks was not the DNC emails Wikileaks released; rather, it was the Vertica database that the DNC used and which had files on the voting behavior of all listed voters (hence the BernieBros that disappeared from Twitter – they were designed to suppress the Clinton vote). The Steele Dossier, which sources say is true in all important respects, states that Russian moles in the DNC leaked the files to Russia – they were as much hackers as Snowden was at the USA. Because there are too many states to place leakers in, Chayanov was forced actually to hack the state voter registration databases.

The Trump server was washing these two databases together for targeting by the campaign as I exclusively reported, with further exclusive reporting on the precise method by TeaPainUSA, here.

Next, with the accurate data provided by the data laundering, the Trump campaign needed to target voting groups with accuracy. It did this by creating fake news and ugly memes, and receiving these from Russian sources. Agents of influence of Russia used to propel these fake stories and memes included Sputnik, Jack Posobiec, and the “botnet” created by Microchip, who is a composite persona. Microchip are Russian agents of influence, and began to create the pro-Trump troll net in 2015, according to Buzzfeed. As well as actual bots based on keywords, the Microchip Russian botnet used human beings and particular hashtags to push the AI themed messaging. Trump’s campaign created fake news to order. Flynn’s twitter account, and that of his son, were lambasted for publishing fake news, but in point of fact it is easy – and provable – to see that the Microchip botnet of Russia was tweeting from the account. Flynn’s twitter used the same exact hashtags and linked back to the MagaX3 PAC. He also pushed out the Wikileaks releases of the stolen DNC material (now declared by the CIA to be Russian active measures) with hashtags like #PodestaEmails19 as they arose (remember, anybody clicking on these links had now given their IP address to Putin).

Flynn was working in Trump Tower with ‘Chief Facebook Officer’ Guido Lombardi, profile in Politico EU, using their mutual hatred of Islam as a wedge issue.

Lombardi, who describes himself as a real estate investor with rightward political leanings, said that throughout the presidential campaign he fielded calls from representatives of a veritable Who’s Who of the European Right, including French far-right leader Marine Le Pen — who was spotted in Trump Tower Thursday — Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, members of Austria’s Freedom Party, as well as the center-right French Républicains party who all wanted to meet with Trump.

Lombardi’s main role, he said, was to run an unofficial, guerilla-style social media operation that aimed to amplify the candidate’s message online. At its height, Lombardi said the operation included sites and Facebook pages for many niche groups of Trump supporters such as  “Bikers for Trump,” “Latinos for Trump” and “Veterans for Trump.”

“In June of 2015, I told Donald, ‘I’d love to help,’” said Lombardi. “‘But I can’t work directly for the campaign because I have all kinds of rules and regulations. I will take care of unofficial media. I will take care of students. I will take care of bikers. I will take care of all the crazies … There is no official connection so [no] liability.’ He said, ‘Great.’”

By the end of the campaign, Lombardi said he was curating some 500 online groups that were run by a network of volunteers. He said he had started some of them but did not specify how many.

It was not possible to verify this claim or Lombardi’s link to the websites. Several of the groups cited by Lombardi had garnered more than 100,000 “likes” on Facebook and featured pro-Trump memes and stories from little-known news sources.

Below, the screenshot shows Flynn pushing out this Russian co-ordinated propaganda targeted by Lombardi.

Lombardi, Flynn and Gaffney, along with Devin Nunes, were in the Transition Team and were willing to slam US intelligence and military leaders.

Fueling concerns are reports of Trump’s selection of former Defense Intelligence Agency director Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn as national security adviser. Flynn was purged himself in 2014 by his superiors in the military intelligence community….Another Trump transition leader who has sharp criticisms of current military and intelligence leaders regarding the war on terrorism is House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif. Nunes is now one of the three Trump transition officials in charge of national security appointments, along with former congressman Pete Hoekstra, R-Mich., and Reagan-era official Frank Gaffney,

A story that I myself reported for Heat Street in October, 2016 – before I reported the FISA warrant on Alfa Bank and SVB Bank – that concerned Trump’s bots and trolls actually pointed to a lot of what is reported here. Because I did note in that story that the Russian botnet AI had spread far beyond America and existed in multiple languages.

Coda: Finding A Common Message Pushed Out by Both Types of Putinbot

One easy way to spot a Russian troll, whether curated or automated, is to look for them pushing out the identical message. Do we remember that “Putin: How Obama Created ISIS” video?

 

This happens (see link). Please note the “various” “diverse” profiles Russian men are adopting here.  We have an Hispanic woman, a Muslim woman, a white far left Bernie Sanders supporter, and a patriotic redneck.

but wait! There’s more! By using this method we can see how the Russian troll farm places its fictional accounts around the world and in multiple languages. Australia, Germany, Japan, Africa…

Dutch, from a Holland-based account….

 

I further pointed out that all these countries had certain tropes in common. Support for Trump, Brexit, Viktor Orban, and Nigel Farage as well as Marine Le Pen.

The interesting thing about analyzing Mom For Trump is his use of most of the tropes pushed by Breitbart’s Steven Bannon, now a Trump advisor. These are:

  1. Trump
  2. Putin
  3. Russia
  4. Brexit
  5. Nigel Farage

Many of the “EU located” Putinbots will also hawk the Russian puppet Viktor Orban, the PM of Hungary. Here’s a Spanish-language Putinbot who has chucked in an avatar boosting Assad for good measure (his account reads “the tiger of damascus”).

It now turns out that on his trips to Cambridge and through the EU, General Misha Flynn was specifically co-ordinating Russian propaganda for the far right.

The Alfa Bank server’s washing of the voter registration and Vertica databases is one half of the incontrovertible evidence that will see Donald Trump impeached. But Moscow Mike Flynn’s Treason Tour of Europe is the other half of it. Flynn is the key not only to Vladimir Putin’s attack on America, but also to his attack on the entire Western World.

An attack in which Donald J Trump was fully and totally complicit.

Putin’s Hacker, Wikileaks Host Pyotr Chayanov, Hacked America’s Vote System And the DNC

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. 

TL/DR: Server King, Hostkey, and Mir Telemakti are one and the same – fronts for the Russian govt.

On October 7th the DHS and the Intelligence Community released a statement on Russian hacking of the election.

They stated that:

“The U.S. Intelligence Community (USIC) is confident that the Russian Government directed the recent compromises of e-mails from US persons and institutions, including from US political organizations. The recent disclosures of alleged hacked e-mails on sites like DCLeaks.com and WikiLeaks and by the Guccifer 2.0 online persona are consistent with the methods and motivations of Russian-directed efforts. These thefts and disclosures are intended to interfere with the US election process. Such activity is not new to Moscow—the Russians have used similar tactics and techniques across Europe and Eurasia, for example, to influence public opinion there. We believe, based on the scope and sensitivity of these efforts, that only Russia’s senior-most officials could have authorized these activities.”

Let us translate: the USIC confirms that Guccifer 2 hacked the DNC emails and was directed by Vladimir Putin to do so.

Next, we move on to state voter registration databases:

Some states have also recently seen scanning and probing of their election-related systems, which in most cases originated from servers operated by a Russian company. However, we are not now in a position to attribute this activity to the Russian Government.

However, happily, I believe I am in a position to do so. Because I can report that sources say that the Russian company which hacked voter registration databases was Hostkey – the host of Wikileaks. King Servers is in fact the same Russian front as Hostkey – both ultimately resolving to, and owned by, the Russian state’s Mir Telemakti.

server king 2

Regular readers of Patribotics will note that we broke two big stories featuring Hostkey, and its owner, a Russian hacker and troll called Pyotr Chayanov.

The first is that Wikileaks, one week before their release of the DNC hack emails, acquired two servers in Russia on which to store all their data. The owner of these massive servers was the hacker Pyotr (Peter) Chayanov, head of Hostkey.

Upon our publishing that epic exclusive by Laurelai Bailey, @Stuxnetsource on Twitter, Mr. Chayanov deleted his entire account, but not before I screenshot all of it.

The second story, even more grave than the first, was that Wikileaks had not merely bought or acquired Russian servers, they had given Chayanov and Hostkey their SSL keys. That in turn meant that Vladimir Putin, Chayanov’s boss, can see the IP of everybody reading anything on Wikileaks and indeed, can see the IP address of anybody who ever donated to Wikileaks.

But because Laurelai discovered that Hostkey/Chayanov had the Wikileaks servers, she inadvertently also proved that it was Russia who hacked US voter databases.

Because it is the same company and the same server.

Furthermore, our most recent exclusive story reported that intelligence sources say the Alfa Bank server was passing voter database info to and from the Russian state, and then handing this info to SCL and Cambridge Analytica (ultimately owned by Alfa Bank) for targeting by the Trump campaign with propaganda.

The DNC hack, hosted by Hostkey and Chayanov, would have had access to Vertica, the DNC’s voter registration server. This server had all the DNC’s information on all their voters and where they lived, voting records and so forth. Vertica had the DNC’s voter addresses, campaign modeling and so forth. It was the goldmine. It was everything.

“An analytics data program maintained by the DNC, and used by our campaign and a number of other entities, was accessed as part of the DNC hack,” said Clinton campaign spokesman Nick Merrill.

 

It is abundantly clear then that Mr. Chayanov’s Hostkey hackers are Guccifer2; that since Hostkey published the Wikileaks stuff and also hacked US voter state databases, the Alfa server was probably comparing the state rolls with the DNC information; and that this was passed back to the Trump campaign through the Trump server.

If the USIC is confident that Guccifer2 was directed by Russia and Putin, then they now know state database hacking was also directed by him, for Hostkey is the same exact company that performed both attacks and then hosted the results.

Some sources report that there was also “IP targeting”  for the “dark Facebook posts” shown on users’ feeds (they used VPNs, and saw messages relevant to those VPNs). That could have come about because anybody who read anything on Wikileaks had now handed over their IP address to Vladimir Putin, because his agent, Julian Assange, had given Chayanov the Wikileaks SSL keys.

A future post will look at just how SCL (owned ultimately by Alfa Bank) created dark posts to target to Democratic voters and how this is tied right back to Trump.

And, ladies and gentlemen, that is the story of how Russian hackers Hostkey, working for Vladimir Putin, in partnership with Donald Trump and his team of traitors, attacked a US election and helped Donald Trump cheat his way into America’s house.

Kushner and Trump: Taped At Secret Trump Tower Meetings With Russians?

On March 3rd, Donald Trump made a series of tweets. Three were about a wiretap at Trump Tower. Two, however, were about Jeff Sessions meeting the Russian ambassador. Those tweets got lost in the resulting storm.

Over the past week, Devin Nunes obstructed justice on TV, both announcing that one White House staffer was under investigation and that “a transition team member” was recorded in a FISA intercept.

Editor’s Note:

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. 

As we exclusively reported, that staffer was almost certainly Boris Epshteyn, named by Comey in his first failed FISA application in June.

Also as we exclusively reported, Michael Ellis is suspected of having leaked this material to Nunes.

But what would be so bad that it would cause Nunes to rush to the White House to illegally receive top-secret FISA evidence?

I believe that Jared Kushner is on tape talking to a Russian spy. Worse, I believe that as part of entirely legal and admissible FISA evidence, Donald Trump is also on tape talking to a Russian spy about money laundering.

Here is my reasoning. First,the facts. I reported that two Russian banks, SVB Bank and Alfa Bank, were the subjects, the named targets, of the FISA warrant looking at Russian money being laundered into the Trump campaign. This was a world exclusive on November 7th.

SB2

Permission was granted for the FBI to look at intercepts that involved US persons as they related to this campaign / money laundering.

Boris Epshteyn was named in an earlier version of this case to the court, and the warrant was then denied. But it is not a different case; rather, minimization was applied by the FBI before the warrant was granted.

Those are the facts of the matter on the warrant. It is also factually true that Jeff Sessions met with Kislyak, a spy recruiter, and perjured himself over it. It is further factually true that Jared Kushner snuck Kislyak into Trump Tower. Lastly, it is factually true that Jared Kushner met Gorkov, an FSB spy, at the request of Kislyak,

Second, informed speculation.

I believe that on March 3rd, Michael Ellis, newly placed in the White House, gave Donald Trump some very bad news (illegally). First he told him that Kislayak’s phone calls had been intercepted and his meetings taped – as is normal. Hence Jeff Sessions’ conversations with the spy-master were on tape. Worse, Ellis told Trump, members of Donald Trump’s own family had been taped talking to that same Russian ambassador. Lastly, he, Donald Trump, was also recorded – his phone was recorded – in Trump Tower – talking to Kislyak.

Trump would have blustered and demanded to know how this was legal. Ellis would have told him about the FISA warrant. My world exclusive stated this was granted in October, hence Trump’s squeals that “Obama” had him “tapped” “right before the victory”.

I believe that here Trump referred to the granting of the warrant as described by Ellis. Ellis may have said, for example, that the Justice Department had to authorize the application to FISC. Trump garbled this because he is galactically stupid.

I believe that the references to Trump Tower are because Jared Kushner’s meeting with Gorkov  and Kislyak was indeed taped because SVB Bank is a direct target of the warrant. Epshteyn led an ‘invest in Moscow’ trip in 2014, Gorkov’s bank and SVB had signed a memo to “invest in US startups”. The latter bit is mentioned in the Steele Dossier.

As a named target, SVB Bank is legitimate – and US persons caught up in this are legitimate. Jared talking to Gorkov was fair game. SVB

Kushner had snuck the Russian ambassador secretly into – Trump Tower. And Trump said “MY phones were tapped.” That means – I believe – that legal FISA intercepts involve not only Jared Kushner talking to Russian spies but also, because Trump called in to this secret meeting or meetings within Trump Tower, Donald J. Trump.

Michael Ellis probably called Nunes in with urgency because he saw Trump and Kushner named in intercepts. This explains why the equally galactically stupid and treacherous Nunes said that he read top secret FISA evidence ‘not to do with Russia’ and ‘Russia was never mentioned’. When you are looking at money-laundering and RICO offenses – as I report the FISA warrant was – you do not need to NAME Russia. You discuss dates, amounts of money and deals.

But (at the risk of repeating myself) this was indeed a FISA warrant, and was both a national security and criminal case. It was, as I reported in November, not about common or garden oligarch corruption or the Russian mob – it was about Russian money being funneled into the Trump campaign, as Paul Wood of the BBC makes clear in his exclusive report of January 12th.

When Ellis saw the actual intercepts involving Trump and Kushner, I postulate, he panicked and rang Nunes for a quiet midnight stroll in the White House grounds – because Trump needed some way to attack the legal and incidental evidence collected under FISA, and “fruit of the poisoned tree” is, quite literally, all these people have left.

But the tree is not poisoned, and the fruit is legally top notch.

How do you like them apples, Mr. Putin?
