Carolina Conspiracy: Jack Posobiec and the Fakes that Forced Comey’s Hand

Editor’s Note:

In order not to slow the narrative of this report, I have put an important caveat at the bottom of this story concerning both the innocence of the real adult woman whose name Russia used in these profiles, who was almost 17 when Weiner’s crime was committed, and the presumably separate then 15 year old girl in the New York case whose name is sealed. I have no firm intelligence on the identity of Weiner’s 15 year old victim.

The Carolina Conspiracy: Jack Posobiec, Kirstin Winfree, and the fake “Miranda Crowley”

On May 18th, an Air Force One Group Gulfstream GV landed at Charlotte, North Carolina. This is the kind of plane that normally transports Cabinet members. It is not known who was on the plane.

On May 20th, Anthony Weiner pled to a count of sexting with a girl who had not obtained 16 years old at the time of the offense.

On May 22nd, the Hill reprinted a story from WhoWhatWhy.com to following effect:

The teenage girl who had exchanged sexually explicit text messages with former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) lied about her age and political motivations to harm Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, according to a report by the investigative news site WhoWhatWhy.

In a report published Monday, the website said the girl who exchanged the messages with Weiner was closer to 17 and not 15, as initial reports said. That also puts her above the age of consent in North Carolina, which is 16.

I broke the story that Anthony Weiner was certainly sexting with a person or persons other than a 15 year old girl in ‘The Carolina Conspiracy’ in early March. A source close to Who What Why contacted me and stated that the girl in their report was the same person I had covered in my own reporting. Their report stated:

According to the media accounts of this story and Weiner’s plea deal, the girl “had not attained the age of 16 years.”

However, our research shows that the girl was in fact not “15 and a sophomore” as the Daily Mail reported, when she initiated contact with Weiner. A court record shows that she was just shy of her 17th birthday at the time she approached him.

My source told reported that this court document, which the site did not publish, was a traffic citation. When I put that to the owner of WhoWhatWhy, a conspiracy theorist who is anti the Bush family, Russ Baker, he stated he did not know what I was talking about.

But because the Hill reprinted the Who What Why story, I had begun to seek details myself. Everything else referred to in their report, such as faked social media profiles on the girl, I had already independently obtained in February and March. I held it back from my reporting only because I could not find an official document on which to rely.

I now have such a document and present this report on the intensive faked social media personae created over one “Miranda Crowley”. As I state below, I have no evidence other than the assertion of my source that the then 15 year old girl in the sealed court case in New York is named Miranda Crowley. It certainly could be an entirely different victim. That victim of Weiner’s must be different, for she is, the SDNY prosecutors assert, underage and the case is sealed.

Miranda Crowley, the real woman, is an adult of 18 years old, having attained her majority this spring.  When the sexting with Anthony Weiner began, in January of 2016, she was 16, over the age of consent in North Carolina. In March she turned 17, which is the legal age of consent in New York. Either, then, Anthony Weiner’s victim is a different person, a child, or the plea bargain is seriously awry. I make no assertions on the law; Weiner stipulates he thought he was sexting with an underage girl of 15 years which itself constitutes a crime, so clearly this is not about exculpating Weiner or blaming his victim. The question would be why is the plea deal false, stating that the victim was underage in North Carolina at the time of the offense? And what significance, if indeed there is any, is there to a Cabinet level Air Force One Group GV landing in North Carolina just before the plea deal was struck?

The story is not about the 15 year old victim of Weiner, nor about the real Miranda Crowley, but rather, about the concerted, provable Russian effort to ‘catfish’ Weiner with fakes and force the Comey letter which handed the election to Trump. Fake profiles, by definition, are just that. A letter full of passages from obscure adult books was written by adults. Russian-linked operatives and agents of influence boasted that adult males had carried out that hack on behalf of Russia. It is these fakes that this report addresses, and therefore, the accusations are leveled at a group of adult males and not the real young woman whose identity they stole and faked.

“Miranda Crowley” And the “Russian Hackers”

Before the election, innumerable social media profiles featuring the pictures of different girls were set up by hackers and social engineers in the name of “Miranda Crowley” showing a sophisticated effort to set up a completely fake person online with a hinterland of friends and relatives who also proved to be fake.

 

There were Twitter, Facebook and Ask.FM profiles. I spent weeks clicking through the friends lists on these public profiles to find relatives who also proved to be fakes. Some few examples of my voluminous list of “Miranda Crowley” accounts are here, here, here, and herebernie J.jpg. A fake account was set up on Facebook in the name of “her” “father” “Matthew Crowley” who worked as “U.S. Airways Training Center”. Click through to that august institution, however, and you came to this page (I was nothing if not thorough).

Before Alanna Goodman wrote her story, one @Annierrobbins published, one month before, a tweet hinting at the Weiner hack. “Confide” was the app Weiner used to sext his victim.

AnnieRRobbins.jpeg

Subsequently, just after the James Comey letter was written, Kirstin Winfree claimed it was not a 15 year old girl that Weiner was sexting with but a “28 year old Bernie voting hacker.”

bernie J.jpg

She added “Who thought the Russians could play a sweet southern girl from Northern Carolina so well!” #Checkmate #HillarysEmail”

Kristin Winfree.jpeg

That does seem pretty suspicious, especially since Ms. Winfree has social media profiles with the name “Logan” in them, Crowley’s middle name. She is a huge partisan of Putin and Russia:

: Putin and Russia turned out to be one of America’s strongest and most stalwart allies in the months following 9/11.”

and regularly tweets out Russian propaganda sites like RT.com.

Well Hello Putin!!!!! Awesome Russian Air Force destroys ISIS command center, training camp (VIDEO) & thank you!!!

More importantly during the Comey letter period, Winfree was tweeting out propaganda created by Jack Posobiec, the Russian agent of influence who supports Trump. She was also in contact with Posobiec   

and the Russian hacker 0 hour, zero hour.

Hackers.jpeg

Posobiec, who was employed by Rebel Media, openly admitted to his role in accessing and publishing hacked “Macron Leak” emails.

At the time of the Carolina Letter, he was boasting of knowledge of the corrupt FBI investigators.

Posobiec certainly seemed to think at the time that Comey was forced into reopening the investigation. He boasted of NSA traitors who had hacked the DNC and Podesta emails and gave them to Assange. He cited Guliani, who was boasting of active FBI agents demanding this, and boasted of FBI sources himself.

FBI Source: Agents knew of emails weeks before Comey did

Interestingly, Posobiec tweets first about Wiener in 2013. He is also now linking Erik Prince of Blackstone to the case. Sources with links to the intelligence community have suggested to me that Prince and Oleg Deripaska may both be involved in the social media operation around “Miranda Crowley”.

Mr. Deripaska owns Endeavor, the PR agency, and one Mr. Adam Waldman was registered under FARA as an agent for him at one time. A “warning” which I print here as delivered to me, and which I regard as a threat, was sent to me about this specific story.

NSA friend is yet again worried about your safety because of the Deripaska stories. They said to be VERY careful and they assume you know the risks, but Deripaska is unlikely to go to jail once all is said and done, so if you ruin business for him bc of your revelations, then you and family may become his targets. They said to be extremely careful just for this reason. your info is correct of course, but they’re worried about your safety.

Mr. Deripaska had been said by some sources to be connected to the Daily Mail story on the ’15 year old girl’. I put that in scare quotes not because I assert the girl in the New York case, the victim, is not the age that prosecutors in the Southern District of New York say that she is, but because the girl in the story did not write the email to Weiner that they claimed.

Further, the real Miranda Crowley is 18 years old. Her traffic citation has been published on a public crimebusters website. This may or may not be a reliable source. However, I have in my possession from sources close to the matter, an official document from the Secretary of State in North Carolina, relating to her voter registration, which matches the age of 18 found on that alleged copy of her traffic citation.

Cracka.jpeg

The many fake Miranda Crowleys, often laden with references to CWA the hacking crew, are almost certainly as Ms. Winfree said the creations of Russians and nothing to do with the real young woman in question here.

Mc55

The interesting thing about the “AnnieRRobbins” account is its connection to the first time Mr. Weiner was sexting and was hacked. The New York Times reported in 2011 that fake twitter accounts were used to catfish Weiner back then.

At least three months before the revelation that former Representative Anthony D. Weiner was sending lewd messages and photos to women online, a small group of self-described conservatives was monitoring his exchanges with women on Twitter. Now there is evidence that one or more people created two false identities on Twitter in order to collect information to use against him.

A Twitter user employing a fake name posed as a 16-year-old California high school girl in May and tried to get Mr. Weiner to be her prom date, according to people with knowledge of the communications and a review of documents. The person behind another Twitter account created under a fake name claimed to be her classmate and offered to provide the group with incriminating evidence about Mr. Weiner.

At that time, a fake account looking like nothing so much as a modern Putinbot, Dan Wolfe, was also tweeting out hints.

Dan-Wolfe-tweet-500x233.jpg

I have asked Michael Anton of the White House if he, formerly of Breitbart, was “Annie R Robbins”. The account is linked to a bitter blog about Ms. Robbins, a liberal Jewish personality, by one “Apollo Speaks”. As “Publius”, Mr. Anton wrote extensively at Breitbart about Anthony Weiner during his first fall from grace. I very much suspect Anton of having repeated his obnoxious pattern here; fake accounts, Latin aliases, cowardly anonymous attacks, and first hand knowledge of a hack on Weiner. He has declined to reply to my email thus far.

My first blog on this story, ‘the Carolina Conspiracy’, lists the pseudo-intellectual tripe of obscure books that the “15 year old girl” put into “her” email to Anthony Weiner. It does not fit any young teen but does fit Mr. Anton’s fifth-rate pseudo-intellectualism. I await his comment.

I will report further, in later articlesm on the role of CWA, the hacking crew of persona management experts, about Mr. Nikulin, the Russian hacker who was picked up in Prague on a charge of hacking Formspring, Anthony Weiner’s old sexting app, and other persons who may have played a part in it. I will also add further links and screenshots to the evidence listed in this story.

Miranda Crowley profiles

Note: Weiner’s 15 year old victim and the real Miranda Crowley

In March I published ‘The Carolina Conspiracy’, a piece asserting my theory that Anthony Wiener was ‘sexting’ with Russian hackers and not with a 15 year old girl.

Following Wiener’s plea deal to one count of the charges laid against him in the Southern District of New York, I appended a correction to that piece, and this correction, for the moment, still stands. Weiner pled guilty to a charge that did amount to ‘sexting’ with a 15 year old girl. The name of that girl is sealed because according to the charge, she is a minor.

At the moment, I must stress that I have no evidence before me to prove that the underage girl in the sealed complaint is the same person as the one on whom I am about to report.

The woman whose real name was used for the fake media profiles in this story is “Miranda Crowley”. She was almost 17 during the three months Weiner’s crime was committed, so, at present, I must assume that the 15 year old girl to which the New York court case refers is another person.

Further, nothing in this report is intended to suggest that the real young adult whose name was used by Russian hackers in this operation. Clearly the premise of the story is that fake social media profiles were used by adult Russian hackers. None of this open source material on the fake “Miranda Crowleys” is to be attributed to Miranda Crowley, the real person.

Carter Page Went to Moscow With a Tape of Donald Trump Offering Treason For Hacking

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. 

UPDATED: Boris Epshteyn has denied some parts of this story, which I report within the text. 

Sources with links to the intelligence community say it is believed that Carter Page went to Moscow in early July carrying with him a pre-recorded tape of Donald Trump offering to change American policy if he were to be elected, to make it more favorable to Putin. In exchange, Page was authorized directly by Trump to request the help of the Russian government in hacking the election.

On November 7th I reported that the FBI had been granted a FISA warrant to investigate the activities of two Russian banks, Alfa Bank and Silicoln Valley Bank. I also reported that an earlier attempt to obtain a FISA warrant, in June, had failed in the court because it named Donald Trump himself and three of his associates. In an exclusive at Patribotics, I reported that these named associates were Carter Page, Paul Manafort, and Boris Epshteyn.

Sources close to the intelligence community now report that this application was made because a recording exists of all three men discussing the possibility of Page taking the tape of Trump to Moscow as an earnest of good faith. (Update: Mr. Epshteyn has denied he is on any such recording, but I am not sure if he is denying the conversation took place and have asked his lawyers to clarify). There is a minor dispute over whether Trump himself is also on that tape, as well as the tape that was delivered to Moscow by Carter Page of Trump making this promise. A separate source with links to the intelligence community reported to me several months ago that Boris Epshteyn, alone of the four men named in the first FISA application, is an actual FSB agent (he has strenuously denied this). Paul Manafort is registering as an agent of a foreign power [update: he has yet to do so]; Carter Page has admitted, from public reporting, to have met with Russian intelligence agents.

It may therefore be surmised that Page, Manafort and Epshteyn, in this conversation wherein they discussed taking the Trump tape to Moscow, were all acting in concert as agents of the Russian state first and foremost, and Trump staffers second. Because the provision of such a tape to Putin would clearly be the ultimate in kompromat on a future American President (far worse than any sexual blackmail tape).

The FISC judge, as I reported, rejected that application, made in June. Director Comey likely proved to the satisfaction of the court that Page, Manafort and Epshteyn were acting as Russian agents. But he may have felt that Trump, by now the nominee, was just a very stupid patsy. And the planned trip had not taken place.

Director Comey redrew this request and presented FISC with a new warrant application. The Washington Post says that there is a FISA warrant on Page, but it does not say that there is NOT a FISA warrant on the other two men named in the June application. I will therefore assume from now on that the July FISA warrant granted targets Page, Manafort and Epshteyn.

Page had always seemed weirdly confident about his relationship with Trump. He had the tape of Mr. Trump offering to change policy. Sources say that this tape was played in meetings with Russian intelligence officers in Moscow, and that several Western intelligence sources have recordings of the meetings and the tape which they supplied to US intelligence.

The Washington Post does not name the date in July when Director Comey obtained his warrant. It seems likely however that it would not have been before July 5-8, when Page was in Russia. Furthermore, my own story on the separate FISA warrant granted on the two Russian banks states that Director Comey specifically sought permission to examine existing transcripts and intercepts on US persons as they related to this inquiry into money laundering into the Trump campaign.

My November 7th report directly connects the granting of the banking warrant to election hacking of the DNC. It is fair to say that, at the time of writing, I did not understand precisely how these two matters were connected. I now know and have reported that the server was washing databases of DNC hacked materials with voter registration materials. It is clear that, if my sources were correct, Director Comey would not have been able to listen to the recording of Mr. Trump played by Mr. Page in the offices of Russian intelligence in Moscow until he obtained that warrant, in October; his July warrant on Page came too late to affect a trip on July 5-7th.

When Carter Page returned to the RNC in Cleveland, he and Jeff Sessions, who recruited him to Team Trump via the Alfa Bank lobbyist Richard Burt, both met with the Russian spymaster Sergei Kislyak. From public reporting, we know that they not only changed the RNC platform on Ukraine at the behest of Russia, but also discussed lifting sanctions, a violation of the Logan Act.

Mr. Epshteyn was probably also present at that meeting. [Update – Mr. Epshteyn has issued a denial that he is an FSB agent, and has denied “meeting with Russian spymaster” Sergei Kislyak, as I have described the Ambassador. It is unclear to me from the wording of the letter whether he is denying that he ever met with Mr. Kislyak, or that Mr. Kislyak is a spymaster; I am seeking clarification]. The reason I say this is that I can personally report that Mr. Epshteyn, whom I had met several times in the green room at Fox News, and I, had a bet on – I bet him $100 that the Republican Party would not actually nominate the racist and sexist Donald Trump.

I lost that bet and made a point of texting Mr. Epshteyn at the conference to pay up. He was charming. I handed over the $100. He went back to Mr. Trump’s private suite.

I now realize that I was probably giving money directly to an agent of Russia (at Mr. Epshteyn’s request, I have changed this from “an FSB agent”. Mr. Epshteyn has not yet  clarified for me if he is an agent of Russia under FARA, so I am altering the text pending his answer). But if I could not hear what Mr. Page, Mr. Manafort, and Mr. Kislyak were discussing with the Russian Ambassador behind the door of Donald Trump’s suite, the FBI most certainly could.

I will produce a short timeline of the Trump-Russia story on this blog tomorrow. For now, the point is that intelligence sources say that Page, Manafort and Epshteyn, possibly also with Trump, are on tape discussing how Page should carry a recording of Donald Trump to Moscow, offering his bona fides in exchange for Russia’s help hacking the election (something that Epshteyn denies, specifically, he denies that he is on tape doing so – I have sought clarification as to whether the conversation happened, and will amend the text when I receive an answer); and that the said tape of Trump was played by Page to Russian intelligence, possibly including Mr. Diveykin, the Russian official in charge of hacking the election; and that multiple foreign intelligence services, among them the UK, Germany and Ukraine, have a tape of this; and that finally, in October, the FBI was able to listen to that tape.

So God bless America, and God Save the Queen.

 

 

 

 

Jeff Sessions: Attorney General, Suspect

Editor’s Note: Donations and Whistleblowing

Jeff Sessions has just been confirmed. It is now incumbent on patriotic Republicans and Democrats, and, failing that, patriotic lawyers willing to bring cases, to demand that Sessions recuse himself from any and all investigations concerning Russian hacking of the election, the Department of Justice investigation into corruption and election interference by the FBI field office in New York and the NYPD, and any investigations involving Steve Bannon or Trump or Breitbart campaign staff, past or present.

Part One: Sessions – Suspect or Material Witness in Any Russian Hacking Inquiry

Jeff Sessions Recruited Carter Page, Under FBI Investigation

Even those who are only loosely following the Russian hacking story must be aware of the names of Carter Page and Paul Manafort, and of the FISA warrant, which Ii reported was issued to the FBI’s counter-intelligence division in Connecticut on October 15, 2016, concerning the activity of the server in Trump Tower and of two Russian-linked banks, Alfa Bank and SVB (Silicon Valley Bank).

Jeff Sessions was first announced by the Trump campaign as its ‘National Security Adviser’. He was next announced by the Trump campaign as its ‘Foreign Policy Adviser.’ Senator Sessions has no experience in either of these areas of policy.

Cantor 1.jpeg

On March 16th, then Trump campaign spokesman Jason Miller told Newsmax that Jeff Sessions, personally, was putting together Trump’s foreign policy team.

On March 21st, the Washington Post reported its interview with Trump in which he states that this list of foreign policy advisers includes Carter Page. The transcript is not perfectly accurate. If one listens to the audio recording at the top of the article, however, Trump says: ‘Give me the list, Corey [Lewandowski], so I can be a little more accurate here.’ He then reads the names from a piece of paper, explaining the odd cadence (as written) of ‘Carter Page, PhD,’ which is not how one normally announces the name of a team member, but does reflect how Page might be described on a written list.

Dan4.jpeg

This detail suggests that Trump himself knew little of Page. Miller is on the record as saying that Jeff Sessions is putting the team together.

Carter Page had absolutely no, zero, foreign policy experience. This odd choice was remarked upon at the time.

Sca 1.jpeg

Senator Sessions must explain why he chose Carter Page, who went to Russia in July and reportedly met with Sechin on sanctions and the head of Russian intelligence, Igor Diveykin, charged with hacking America’s election.

Politico reported that Carter Page also met Sergei Ivanov, “until recently Putin’s Chief of Staff”.

Senator Sessions must answer if he had any input into, or oversight of, Carter Page’s letter to Director Comey of (September), in which Page carefully says:

Yet for the record, I have not met this year with any sanctioned official in Russia despite the fact that there are no restrictions on U.S. persons speaking with such individuals

This language is so carefully parsed, that Carter Page could have met

  1. Sanctioned Russians working for the Russian government, who are not officials, in Russia, in 2016 – that would include Sergei Ivanov
  2. Sanctioned Russian officials, in 2016, outside of Russia
  3. Any Russian person on the sanctions list, including officials, in Russia up to the end of December 2015, for example at the RT.com dinner at which Mike Flynn was present
  4. Any Russians whatever including Putin himself outside of Russia in 2016.

Carter Page (in regards to the Alfa Bank server) has or had ‘an office around the corner from Trump Tower’. And these are only the top lines of his suspicious contact and total lack of qualifications, to have been chosen by Sessions.

Jeff Sessions must answer for his recruitment of one of the FBI’s top suspects in Russia’s hack on America, believed also to have offered to lift sanctions in exchange for assistance to Trump in the election; and who features in the Steele dossier.

Jeff Sessions Is Connected to Alfa Bank, Named in Comey’s FISA Warrant

Jeff Sessions is deeply connected to Alfa Bank, one of the banks named in the FISA Court’s October warrant. His chief of staff Richard Burt is a lobbyist for Alfa Bank. According to the Steele dossier, Trump was required to switch positions on Ukraine in exchange for intelligence. This happened in April, according to the dossier.

Dan4.jpeg

April is when Paul Manafort joined the campaign as its manager.

April 17 is when Richard Burt, Alfa Bank lobbyist and Jeff Sessions chief of staff, wrote a Trump speech that did just what the Steele dossier requested Trump do. 

http://www.newsmax.com/Headline/Trump-Campaign-Denies-Ties-Russia/2016/10/07/id/752155/

Nor did it stop there. Alfa Bank’s Mr. Burt, whom, like Carter Page, the Trump camp tried to wash its hands of, denying contact, continued to advise Jeff Sessions during the summer and wrote policy papers for him. Newsmax reports:

“while the Trump campaign denies Burt’s involvement, the lobbyist … was invited to attend dinners hosted by Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, Trump’s national security committee chairman, to discuss national security and foreign policy. Burt and another source told Politico that he also wrote white papers for Sessions on those subjects.” Burt said “he delivered his advice through an intermediary, whom he would not name”.

But Mr. Burt was in the direct pay of Alfa Bank. Sessions must name that intermediary.Sessions is directly responsible then for three of the most crucial things in any criminal, intelligence or Congressional investigation Russian hacking of the election: the recruitment of Carter Page, Trump’s shift in foreign policy towards Ukraine and Russia, directly matching the time and the substance as reported in the Steele dossier to be ‘payment’ for Russian hacking, and for deep connections to Alfa Bank, on which the FBI FISA warrant was finally granted. He would be both a suspect, and a key witness.

Part Two: Jeff Sessions Must Not Prevent Criminal FBI, DOJ Inquiries Into His Friends and Colleagues

Sessions Must Extradite Nikulin, Russian Hacker Who Attacked Anthony Wiener’s Computer

Jeff Sessions as Attorney General would be in the position of prosecuting, or not, Yvgeny Nikulin, the Russian hacker who connects Russia’s attack on America and the sedition of the FBI Field Office in New York.

Elements within the NYPD and the FBI Field Office in New York are suspected of criminal conspiracy with Donald Trump and his electoral team, including, but not limited to, the National Security Adviser General Mike Flynn, Rudy Giuliani, and Lara Trump, the wife of Eric Trump.  

Before the release of Director Comey’s election-altering letter, which was wrongfully, perhaps criminally, leaked by Jason Chaffetz of Utah, the following people had boasted in advance that the FBI Field Office in New York and the NYPD were leaking to them about “criminal inquiries” into both Wiener and the Clinton Foundation, and that they had “a surprise” coming, which would alter the political course of the election:

General Mike Flynn, National Security Adviser

Rudy Giuliani, legally advising the President

Lara Trump

and others.

Mr. Nikulin was picked up on October 5th in Prague on an FBI Red Warrant. That is exceptionally serious. He has still not been extradited. His indictment, issued October 21, states that he ‘transmitted a code’ to a computer and mentions that he hacked, with admin credentials, LinkedIn, Dropbox and Formspring.

Formspring is the application Anthony Wiener first used for sexting. It closed altogether in 2014

There is clearly every likelihood that Nikulin “woke” Anthony Wiener’s old computer and activated or planted copies of emails upon it. The DoJ indictment states that

According to the indictment, the defendant also caused damage to computers belonging to a LinkedIn employee and to Formspring by transmitting a program, information, code, or command.  Nikulin also is alleged to have used the credentials of LinkedIn and Formspring employees in connection with the computer intrusions.  Further, Nikulin is alleged to have engaged in a conspiracy with unnamed co-conspirators to traffic stolen Formspring user credentials.

Did you get that?

“Nikulin is alleged to have engaged in a conspiracy with unnamed co-conspirators to traffic stolen Formspring user credentials”

That means a Russian hacker traded credentials of Anthony Wiener, to whom?

The indictment further states:

Nikulin was arrested on Oct. 5 by officials in the Czech Republic pursuant to an Interpol Red Notice based on a warrant issued in connection with a criminal complaint. He remains in custody in Prague, Czech Republic.

My theory, to be explicit, is that Russian hackers, working with and for the Trump campaign, handed over Anthony Weiner’s sexting credentials; that emails were planted on his computer: that the FBI and NYPD elements in New York (Field Office) boasted to the Trump camp they had an “October Surprise” coming: and they forced Director Comey to reveal his private letter.

Is Jeff Sessions going to bring home to America this accused criminal, Nikulin, taken in Prague on an ultra-serious Interpol Red Notice, when Nikulin could indict all his friends and colleagues on the Trump campaign?

Will Congress and those Republicans who trust Sessions force him to do this?

Will Sessions try to dismiss the extradition of the hackers Comey has picked up abroad? Will he try to prevent deep prosecution of Nikulin? Will he tread on the extant six-agency taskforce, or refuse to recuse himself, a suspect, in Russian hacking?

It is saddening to me that patriot Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham are voting yes on Jeff Sessions because they know him, when Sessions, for deniability, refused to read the Russian hacking report.

They should limit his power as AG – or lawyers with conflict of interest specialities should go to the courts to remove him.
