aside Connections Between Deutsche Bank/ Alfa Bank, Russia And Our President, Part IX

Image result for images of flynn manafort carter pageIn the months of March-April 2017, more and more revelations have been forthcoming about the republican President Donald Trump, his surrogates and their connections to Russia. The floodgates of the leaks and pertinent information started when the the FBI Director James Comey FBI confirmed on March 20, 2017 that the bureau has been investigating possible links and coordination between Russia and the president’s team, as part of a broader probe of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election since the summer of 2016.

We now know for sure, that at least three key players associated with the president have been subject to monitoring by the intelligence community who are Paul Manafort, Carter Page and retired Lt. General Mike Flynn. We have been informed that both Paul Manafort and General Flynn have recently registered as lobbyists representing foreign entities and governments. It has been confirmed that Carter Page had been the subject of a FBI FISA warrant since the summer of 2016. Soon after all this intelligence data had been made public, a friend of Eric Trump, Boris Epshteyn, a Russian immigrant who had been a surrogate for the president, suddenly resigned for no apparent reason, and of course, this has raised some eyebrows. We have learned that three Russian hackers have been apprehended to be questioned by the FBI while they were traveling in European countries.

CNN reported on  (3/9/17) that last summer (2016) a computer server owned by the Russia-based Alfa Bank “repeatedly looked up the contact information for a computer server being used by the Trump Organization —(Cendyn) far more than other companies did, representing 80% of all lookups to the Trump server.”

News sources indicate that from 5/4/16 to 9/23/16, about 99% of all the 2,700-2,800 “look up” messages from the Trump organization were with the Alfa Bank (80%), and with a server from Spectrum Health (19%), a company led by Betsy Devos’ husband.

However, the source Louise Mensch has broken news which had been later verified like the 10/15/17 FBI FISA warrant to look in part into the above Alfa Bank mystery. The order gave permission for the Department of Justice to investigate two banks suspected of being part of the Kremlin’s undercover influence operation into the 2016 U.S. presidential elections.

As per a 4/16/17 Palmer report by Bill Palmer, “The latest revelation, from intel sources with a history of being proven right, is that Trump is caught on tape laying out the terms of the treasonous deal he cut with the Russian government to rig the election in his favor – and that three of his advisers are caught discussing it on a separate recording.”

You can read the report here. The source says U.S. intelligence has these recordings in hand.”

Journalists like Seth Abramson are questioning Ms. Louise Mensch’s reporting because by July 2016, the Russian President Putin would have been fully aware of President’s pro-Russia stance without any tape but based on his pro-Russian speeches delivered frequently at his numerous campaign rallies. And why would Mr. Trump record himself committing the crime of treason?

Of course, I am rooting for Louise Mensch to be the one who uncovered the news item of an era.

  1. I’d be ecstatic no matter who uncovered such wonderful proof. Trump’s pro-Russian pro-Putin stance should be enough to have him removed from the Presidency and to take most of his rotten team with him.

    • Dear David Prosser.

      I can toast a drink to that thought.

      After Ms. Mensch broke the story of the 10/15/17 FISA warrant, there were those who were suspicious of the accuracy of her reporting until later, when the BBC and the Guardian confirmed this information. Well Ms Mensch finds herself out there on a limb all by herself, again.

      This is a wait and see story but she does appear to have access to great sources.

  2. While I don’t think anyone with a reasonable thought pattern would deny that there is/was some connection between King tRump and Putin that allowed him to make it into the office, it seems that far too many members of the Republican party refuse to accept that the problem needs to be addressed. I would suspect they fear the loss of power more than they fear the loss of this nation. Will the House address the problem prior to 2024?

    • Dear Crustyolemothman,

      if the republicans don’t face up to this and take responsibility by doing what is right for the country, they will end up regretting this.

      If the roles were reversed, the republicans would be screaming bloody murder and looking for blood.How they look at themselves mirror without a sense of shame, I don’t know.

      Ciao, Gronda

  3. Putin may have wanted the tape so he could use it to bring Trump down. Putin has had his revenge on Hillary Clinton. It will take us years to recover from the damage Trump has done to our credibility as a people much less a system of government. The greatest Democracy in the history brought to it’s knees by a campaign of obvious lies. It makes us look pathetic and stupid.

    No matter how this turns out for Trump, Putin wins.

    • Dear Rob,

      What you say is so true. We are now a more divisive nation. I totally do not trust my government. I do not feel safer but just the opposite.It is like living in a national reality show. How do we survive this?

      Hugs, Gronda

      • It’s important to stay focused on who we are as a people.

        Most Americans are the descendants of risk takers who came to this country because they wanted something better.

        Some of us are the descendants of people who came here to escape persecution.

        They came here because they wanted to be treated with dignity and respect.

        They wanted to be more than peasants who lived at the mercy of tyrants.

        They wanted their children to have educations and lives worth living.

        We are not a perfect people but we have always struggled as a people to create a ‘more perfect’ and compassionate ‘Union’.

        It’s hard to convince a gay man who was born before Stonewall that everyday people can’t change
        the world.

        It’s not easy and this thing that has happened to the United States will not be easily undone.

        The oligarchs who have infiltrated our government think that Americans will be told how to think, feel, worship, marry and live.

        They think they can keep us perpetually divided with sordid lies based on the sordid and obvious lies.

        I think they’re wrong.

        • Dear Rob,

          Amen, Amen and Amen. It is too easy to become frustrated to where folks give up fighting / resisting. But every time there has been major progress in the US regarding human rights, it has been the result of a struggle. We recall the feminist protests; the civil rights protests; the ant- Viet Nam War protests. LGBT-Q rights would not have progressed where it not for brave men and women who came out and fought for their rights.

          We can’t give up now. There is too much at stake.

          Hugs, Gronda

        • And remember that the system always resorts to violence before it yields. It took a war to end outright slavery and it may take a war to end the covert slavery in privatized prisons.

          Let’s hope that we can confine it to political warfare rather than actual warfare.
