EXCLUSIVE: U.S. Marshals Readying; Plan Approved By Justice Dept Official

The U.S. Marshals Service presented a plan to a senior Justice Department official yesterday for the service of warrants in the Trump-Russia inquiry, separate sources with links to the intelligence and law enforcement communities report.

The extensive plan was approved yesterday by a senior Justice Department official who is closely involved in prosecuting the case.

Sources say that the extensive plan, multiple pages in length, covered not only the serving of warrants, but logistical arrangements such as the closure of streets, if necessary.

They further report that while timing is uncertain, such plans are normally only presented and approved when arrests are imminent.

Patribotics knows the identity of the senior justice official who approved the plan, and the court in which it was approved. We are redacting that information for now.

More on this story as it develops.

Edited:

I want to acknowledge the following tweets by Claude Taylor made last night. My sources support his sources (and go further). He has asked me to reproduce them exactly as written.

1. Followers know I’ve tried to avoid an exact timeline as to when to expect arrests. I’m now receiving word that it may be soon. Here’s why

2. In order to avoid any possible misinterpretation, I’m going to give exact word for word quote of what I was told. “Rumor has it the AUSA

3. has signed off on the tactical & logistical plan to take numerous subjects into custody”. That’s it. Word for word.

On January 26th of 2017 Sean Spicer using his verified twitter account tweeted the string “n9y25ah7”

Now, around this time so called tech experts in the mainstream press assumed multiple things:

  1. That this tweet was accidental.
  2. That this was either some kind of quickly changed twitter password, or just a random string of letters.

But none are true. It wasn’t a password.

What Mr. Spicer tweeted was actually an “identity confirmation code” – part of a bitcoin transaction. Just take a look at this:

bitsig.jpeg

Text: n9y25ah7

Timestamp: 2017-01-26 21:57:19

This is part of a bitcoin transaction.

From bitcoin address 19FkmhHEzgCXKfALXhahuCTDVcRnxT41MK to bitcoin address 1MNDjuPfXt3B66cWPaC17qFLkwd3usufT5 in the amount of 1.13 USD

The money came to the sending account 3 days before, for the exact sum of 1.14 USD at the time of this writing, .01 USD was used for the transaction itself.

(I use USD value here for the sake of clarity, but technically bitcoin is counted in BTC and the fractions of bitcoin this represents is too unwieldy to bother with.).

So Sean Spicer bought something with bitcoin, as himself. He wanted the people selling to him to know exactly who he was.  It was probably some kind of verification code.

What he was buying with the bitcoin is anyone’s guess at this point. The low amount of money involved makes it seem extra strange. The address that received the bitcoin to also  gained 3 more payments on march 3rd, very large payments. Over $22,000 dollars worth. https://blockchain.info/address/1MNDjuPfXt3B66cWPaC17qFLkwd3usufT5

If this is connected I cant tell yet. There’s just entirely too many strings to pull at.  I may be smart but im not a supercomputer. Plus I figure yall love a good ball of yarn to untangle.

Sources: Boris Epshteyn Paid Russian Hackers For Both Team Trump and FSB

Exclusive: Sources linked to the intelligence community say it is believed that a Russian hacker of the election, Pyotr Levashov, was paid directly by Boris Epshteyn on behalf of both Trump and the FSB.

Sources say the indictment on April 20th of Levashov in the US district court in Connecticut (where an FBI counterintelligence division is based) represents the first concrete move in court that openly leads towards the impeachment of Donald Trump and the prosecution of dozens of members of his team – because this hacker, the sources suggest, was compensated by Team Trump and the FSB jointly, and Team Trump, sources say, know it.

Mr. Epshteyn’s lawyers have denied to me in writing that he was ever an agent of Russia, and have said that neither he nor his parents were ever agents of the Russian state. However, I stand by my prior and current reporting on this public figure, who, until recently, was a member of the US Government as staff at the White House, as well as maintaining a constant public presence as a surrogate of Mr. Trump’s during the campaign, and on television for the White House after it.

Multiple sources with links to the intelligence community report that:

Trump Tower was a “command and control” center for the Kehlios botnet, dismantled by the FBI;

That the “Trump server” with a Trump Tower IP address, that was communicating with servers owned by Alfa Bank in Russia, and with Spectrum Health, had the data packets it sent opened on the hour by human members of Trump’s data team, located near to Trump Tower;

As I have previously reported here at patribotics, the server was ‘washing’ the DNC’s stolen, hacked ‘Vertica” database with voter registration databases – but new sources report further information that images were also sent from or to Russia, and opened by members of Trump’s own team on an hourly basis

That “Pyotr Levashov'” or “Peter Severa”, indicted by the FBI for running the Kehlios botnet, was recruited for the hacking effort by Mr. Epshteyn, who, sources say, was working for both the FSB and team Trump;

That in 2015, Trump Hotels was fined a pittance of $50,000 for malware and credit card fraud after it failed to correct an earlier “breach”, but that this was deliberate, as the credit card malware would later be repurposed to be used in the election;

Kcmc.jpeg

That human accounts pushing out fake memes authorized by Russia were paid, via the Kelhios botnet being operated from Trump HQ, using bitcoin and a spam payments system previously used for pornography;

And that Pyotr Levashov, aka Peter Severa, is also connected to one Dante Jimenez, another top spammer who himself connects back to Hostkey – the Russian company controlled by Vladimir Putin, with servers in the Russian academy of sciences, that hosts Wikileaks

Sources further attest that the FBI intercepted the traffic between the Alfa Bank server and Mr. Trump’s server, and know exactly what was transmitted

Sources further report that there were at least two other “mother servers”, other than the one with the Trump Tower IP address, and the Spectrum Health server that simultaneously pinged Alfa Bank. Sources indicate that one of these two servers was at Spectrum Health, and transferred messages to Russia via a method called “iodine xfer transfer”, but that the US intelligence community intercepted all such messages

Sources close to the intelligence community indicate that the indictment of Pyotr Levashov in Connecticut this week represents the FBI ‘making its move’ to begin proceedings against Trump and his team, as, these sources say, Trump and many of those working for his campaign are well aware that they are tied by data to the criminal activities of Mr. Levashov

Multiple, other sources with links to the intelligence communities of more than one country, who were not the original sources on my exclusive story that Carter Page took a recording of Donald Trump to Moscow, confirm that this story is true.

There will be extensive further reporting on this exclusive story; please check back for updates.

Did Donald Trump Commission Russia’s Hack of the US Election Himself?

Sources linked to the intelligence community say that Donald Trump accepted laundered Russian money which, through shell companies, supported Russian hackers as they attacked America – and then supported Wikileaks and Julian Assange as he published the results of those hacks.

Donald Trump’s link to the hack on the US election appears to be far more direct than anybody thought – with Russian money, washed into his campaign, paying for Russian hackers who attacked both state voter registration databases and the DNC. Trump also appears to have had direct personal knowledge of the propaganda botnet used by Russia.

As I previously reported exclusively on Patribotics in three earlier pieces, the first of which was an exclusive by Laurelai Bailey, Peter Chayanov (one of his many aliases) is a Russian hacker who owns a hacking and spamming company called Hostkey. Upon being outed on Twitter by myself, Bailey and @OpFerguson, Chayanov deleted his account.

Hostkey was revealed firstly to have provided Wikileaks servers in Russia one week before the DNC emails were published, and secondly, to have been given Wikileaks SSL keys, allowing the tracking of any readers of the site, and allowing Putin to deanonymize any past or present leakers or whistleblowers who supplied Julian Assange with documents.

This, of course, makes Assange far more than a publisher – he is now a supplier of intelligence to the Russian state.

However, I also reported exclusively here that Hostkey had provided the “servers from a Russian company” which the USIC stated on Oct 7th, 2016, had attacked voter registration databases in American states. Hostkey, Russia and Chayanov were therefore directly linked to Vladimir Putin, and had both hacked and published material on Russia’s behalf.

I further reported exclusively that the Alfa Bank – Trump Tower server link was “washing” both the state voter databases and data from the DNC’s “Vertica” database.

Today, however, I can also report that Ocean Way Capital, in Florida, which is the shell company that itself hosts Hostkey.com and all its servers, is linked to Russian-Ukranian money laundering to Donald Trump via a series of shell companies based in the British Virgin Islands. Ocean Way Capital Corporation was dissolved there along in April 24th, 2016 – around the same time that, according to the BBC’s Paul Wood, the then director of the CIA heard a tape from Estonian intelligence about Russian money being laundered to the Trump campaign.

Ocean Way Capital Corporation (linked to Chayanov directly) was the owner of hostkey.ru.

Ocean way chayanov.jpeg

And in August of 2016, Ocean Way Capital LLC, the owner of hostkey.com, was set up in Florida. Other shell companies mentioned in the BVI Gazette of April 2016 included Ontera, a fake company that laundered millions in Russian-Cypriot money; Fortune Trump Holdings and three other Trump companies, including these two: Trump Overseas Ltd and Trump Star Investments Ltd.

 

Trump holding.jpg

Run either through google, however, and no, zero, real records come up, either using “Ltd” or “Limited”. We do get this odd looking thing:

 

Amazoon.jpeg

The apparently fake shell companies sit in the listing alongside another, Ontera, which according to an exclusive report by a Czech investigative journalist, was a fake company used solely to wash Russian money through Cypriot banks.

Ontera .jpeg

For now, however, let us return to how Ocean Way Capital Corporation links to both Hostkey, and to Russians, the Seychelles and Cyprus.

Ocean way cap corp

The registrant address of Ocean Way Capital Corporation links to a company found in the Panama Papers.

.Hostkey.info

This in turn, links to a web of companies including Moscrip Limited in the Seychelles, where Erik Prince is said to have met a Russian agent with links to Vladimir Putin. It is also linked to Istanova Investments a Cypriot company that appears to trace to Oleg Deripaska and members of his family. More importantly, one holding company linked to the registrant address of Ocean Way Capital Corporation traces back to a Russian national, registered the UK – Sergey Ovchinnikov. He is listed at the Russian Academy of Sciences. He is listed along with a Cypriot. Cyprus and Russia are notorious, of course for money laundering. Rusian .jpeg

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.

 

 

 

 

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.

Was it good for you?

 

Wikileaks is Connected to Russia – Despite Their Claims

By Laurelai Bailey

 

Wikileaks has time and time again denied any connections to Russia or the Russian state, but – like Donald Trump – they are lying. This weekend, it was exposed on Twitter that they acquired major Russian servers – from a known hacker – one week before the Podesta emails were released.

 

I will walk you through the proof, since its a little complex for non computer experts. So let’s start with a primer.

 

All websites on the internet have an address, much like houses in the real world. This address are usually names and things you recognize, like google.com or amazon.com. But behind that address there are a series of numbers, unique to each server known as internet protocol addresses. If you have ever had to log in to your wireless router, you wound up typing a number into your browser like 192.168.1.1, this is an IP address.

 

Now IP addresses have physical locations, in the real world, and tools exist to discover where those addresses are.

 

Wikileaks  -like every other website –  has servers and IP addresses behind the domain name “wikileaks.org”. When we do a command on a linux machine called “dig” we find out all of the IP addresses behind the domain name. Here is the output of the dig command. Don’t worry if you can’t understand this part – just scroll down to the rest of the article. The writing in the middle explains it, but for those that want proof, we need to list how we get from a to b.

This information is the same for both IP addresses, and if you notice the last modified date as “2016-09-30” that is when the IP address’s pointing to a server was changed. So we can safely bet that this is when wikileaks added these addresses to their systems.

In turn, this proves Wikileaks gained Russian hosting on September 30th 2016, one week before the Podesta emails were made public. Wikileaks got Russian Federation virtual addresses one week before the Podesta emails. Let that sink in.

 

Now the actual owner of the IP addresses is a man by the name of Peter Chayanov, whose IP addresses have hosted spammers and hackers, according to my sources, who work in internet backbone companies.

 

Chayanov’s IP space is a virtual equivalent of a bad neighborhood that makes you lock your car doors when you drive through it. So this further implies a connection to Wikileaks and Russian hackers. That sort of stuff is Chayanov’s day job. And, further, it’s important to remember, this web host also stays around at the consent of the Russian government despite (or because of?) being known cyber criminal hosts.

The other addresses I told you to ignore before? When you do a whois on wikileaks itself you get shown IP’s in Amsterdam and Zurich, ones that make much more sense to have since they are in countries with strong freedom of speech and transparency laws. Places you would want an organization like that in, but the Russian IP spaces, to be visible to you have to be dug for carefully to find them. They did a fairly good job obfuscating it, but the records will always be able to be found.

Mr. Chayanov did not disguise his hosting carefully enough. And when he was exposed this weekend on Twitter, he made matters worse by deleting his account at once.

So why would Wikileaks, a “transparency” org acquire hosting in a country thats known to assassinate whistleblowers? Especially ones that challenge Trumps presidency? It makes no sense for people who claim to be for transparency to take up virtual residence in an autocratic nation that might try to kill them. So why would they do it? Well, it’s pretty simple; they would only be there with the consent of the Russian government, ieVladimir Putin. He wants them to be there and allows them to be there.

 

Why would he do that? Sounds an awful lot like putting a rattlesnake in your own bed to keep the neighbors away. That is if wikileaks was as neutral and would leak against anyone like they claim. Putin might be an autocrat, but he isn’t an idiot.

 

He would not allow them there unless he got something out of it for himself, like immunity to being leaked against or by having influence over what gets leaked and when. Putin like all politicians is a self interested lout and acts in ways that keep him in power. Much like many other world leaders. So wikileaks dropping info on the US alone isn’t enough to allow them to stay, he knows he would be next on the leaking list.

 

So that strongly suggests Russia is getting some kind of favorable or special treatment. Its also likely that the CIA was already aware of this and that this is part of the information they base their claims of Russian interference on. When you see this alone its enough to strongly suggests collusion with the Russian government either directly or indirectly.

 

So it seems fairly sure to me that Wikileaks is now in bed with the Russian government in some form or fashion. Will we shortly discover that Mr. Chayanov is also connected to Guccifer2?
