Former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn has registered with the Justice Department as a foreign agent for his lobbying work linked to the Turkish government, according to paperwork filed Tuesday. Just weeks after Flynn was ousted from the Trump administration, the early Trump supporter and campaign adviser registered with the Justice Department’s Foreign Agent Registration Unit for lobbying that his firm—Flynn Intel Group Inc.—did on behalf of Inovo BV, a Dutch consulting company owned by a Turkish businessman with ties to Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Flynn’s firm took on the Inovo job late in the campaign, in late August, and was paid $530,000 for consulting work on behalf of the company during the final stretch of the presidential campaign. “The new documents& show Inovo wrote& six-figure checks to Flynn's firm in September and October as he served as a top national security aide on Trump's campaign,” USA Today reports. “The final payment of $145,000 came on Nov. 14, 2016, just days after Trump captured the presidency.”

Here’s more on the filing from USA Today:

As part of its contract with Inovo, the Flynn Intel Group hired researchers to examine Fethullah Gulen, a reclusive Islamic cleric who lives in exile in rural Pennsylvania. Erdogan has blamed Gulen's opposition group for an attempted 2016 coup and has sought his extradition. On Election Day, The Hill newspaper published a Flynn op-ed that called Gulen& "radical cleric" and said the U.S. government should "not provide him a safe haven." In its filings with the Justice Department, Flynn's firm said the op-ed was not published at the request of Inovo or the Turkish government but said Inovo did review a draft before Flynn submitted it.

Prediction!

From the 4 Russian hackers just nailed for the Yahoo hackings, will come the definitive revelation of a Trump/Russia collusion in conjunction with the 2016 POTUS election!

A new prediction:

Someone from the Trump campaign/administration will blow the whistle on Russian collusion in exchange for immunity or, via some form of plea bargain.

After today's questioning and presentation of FBI director Comey and the predictable tweet and ass- covering from the White House, someone will crack.

For first in line, my money is on Carter Page.  He didn't see that bus until it was on top of him, and he's looking for payback.

If attempts by Nunes/the White House and others to thwart the investigation are successful, or, appear to be at any given point in time, IMO, leaks will become a deluge in efforts for the truth to come to the American public …

Fiat justitia ruat cælum

 "Let justice be done though the heavens fall.

And since Republicans openly exploited the Russian hacking of the DNC and Wikileaks, IT'S TOO LATE FOR THEM TO EXPRESS RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION ABOUT GETTING TO THE TRUTH VIA LEAKED INFORMATION.

I believe that, if it looks like the investigations are going to be stopped by the Trump people or others involved, that they will get a push via leaks from the intelligence agencies. It is more then just his insults of them when he first came to Washington, though that certainly did not help, it's that there are a great many of them who are genuinely patriotic Americans and if they know that the Russian connection is real, they are not simply going to let it go at that. They will not let there be a real Russian influence over our government because there is certainly no reason to believe that if it happened during the election that it is not still happening. If they were successful, why would the Russians stop?

White House officials are reported to be purging their private phones ahead of fears of being subpoenaed!

Among other things, that could lead to charges of Obstruction of Justice.

And, Manafort and Wilbur Ross and Trump may be called on Russian money laundering issues.

Stay tuned.

Shit Storm Cometh Update …

British Intelligence Services collected communications between Trump Campaign communications with Russian Operatives during election, and apparently, they are not alone.

Recall, it took three years to get Nixon to resign … but, in the information age of today … I speculate that the clock has started to tick on the Trump Administration. Security/investigation agencies foreign and domestic, IMO, will fall all over one another via media outlets, to claim status of "FIRST TO KNOW" AND, MORE IMPORTANTLY, AS THE AGENCY RESPONSIBLE TO PROVIDE THE PROVERBIAL STRAW TO BREAK THE CAMEL'S BACK"!

Gettin' Closer to the Eye of the Shit Storm

Testimony that FBI Director James Comey delivered in January, information that Harry Reid wanted to make public before the election, and part of the information that led the FBI to get a FISA warrant on Trump adviser Carter Page, all appear to have the same source.

 


The FBI last year used a dossier of allegations of Russian ties to Donald Trump's campaign as part of the justification to win approval to secretly monitor a Trump associate, according to US officials briefed on the investigation.


 

That source is the “dossier” put together by former British intelligence operative Christopher Steele, who originally assembled the information to assist one of Trump’s Republican opponents. President Obama and Donald Trump were briefed on the contents on the memos in January, but it now appears that the FBI took the information seriously enough to use it as the basis of investigation months earlier.


The dossier has also been cited by FBI Director James Comey in some of his briefings to members of Congress in recent weeks, as one of the sources of information the bureau has used to bolster its investigation, according to US officials briefed on the probe.
 


 

The information in the dossier, which includes such events as Trump’s supposed romp with prostitutes in a Russian hotel, seemed incredible at the time that portions first became public. However, since that point, CNN reports that some information from Steele’s work has proven to be true.

The infamous Erik Prince. Former head of Blackwater and general all around asshole. Just one more of Trump's transition team members and inner circle who loves to meet Russians in secret and then deny it, until it gets exposed. He'll do well as Trump's cellmate. Unless Trump defects to Russia that is.

 
A. Macarthur

Erik Prince; You got it!

So here we are … some will come here and call the Russian thing "fake".

In the meantime, Exxon (Tillerson's Company) wants an exemption from the sanctions on Russia to get back into a half-trillion dollar oil drilling deal with a Russian Government owned oil company, Trump has made it easier for employers to fuck workers out of wages, for investment companies to cheat elderly investors, for employers to allow workers in mines, etc. to be injured or killed … he tried to take health insurance from 24 million Americans in order to give tax breaks to the top 10% of millionaires and billionaires …

And how did he get elected … by appealing to a genuine anger among Americans AND CONVINCING THEM THAT PEOPLE WHO LOOK DIFFERENT AND WORSHIP DIFFERENTLY FROM THEM … CAUSED THEIR ANGER!

And Wikileaks and Russian hackers assisted in ways, the sum total of which we have yet to learn because a Republican Congress will obstruct investigation however it can, until such time if any, that they perceive Trump to be their political liability.

Organized wealth with the help of a foreign power is fucking Middle Class America …

And the zeal-without-knowledge people who hate the same people Trump hates (be it in actuality, or, to pander to their stupidity and ugliness) … will stop in to attack me for saying so.

Bring it on!

How convenient … a shakeup at the Justice Department 

Leader Of Justice Department National Security Division On The Way Out


The woman leading the Justice Department's investigation of foreign meddling into the 2016 election and possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia has told staff members she will leave the department in May.

Mary B. McCord has served at the highest levels in the national security unit, either as its leader or chief deputy, for the past three years. A longtime federal prosecutor based in Washington, McCord easily won the confidence of both career lawyers and her supervisors inside the Justice Department.

The question is, will her job be taken by a career person at Justice or will Trump show just how scared shitless he is and appoint a political "yes man" type to do the job while the investigation gets closer and closer and closer to him? Does he have the balls and the lack of a guilty conscience to let the investigation go ahead unimpeded or will he pussy out and try to gum up the works, which won't work anyway and will just make him look more and more and more guilty? My bet is that he is terrified right now.

And now … THE TRUMP JUSTICE DEPARTMENT MAY HAVE ANOTHER RECUSAL WITH WHICH TO DEAL!

The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977 (FCPA) (15 U.S.C. § 78dd-1, et seq.) is a United States federal law known primarily for two of its main provisions, one that addresses accounting transparency requirements under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and another concerning bribery of foreign officials.

JARED KUSHNER, Trump's son-in-law, may have had real estate deals financed in violation of this act.

Will the Department of Justice under Sessions and Rosenstein, look the other way and obstruct justice as Republican-controlled Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches of government stick it to America?

And suddenly he has to delay the investigation for at least three more weeks, just at the time when the Democrats on the Oversight Committee he is Chairman of wrote a letter to him asking him to arrange a meeting with the White House to help pressure them into releasing the information they are holding back about Micheal Flynn, because he suddenly has to return to Utah to have the screws in his leg taken care of even though they have been in there and fine for the last 12 years.
