The Russian efforts to subvert the American President is becoming clearer…

It is becoming increasing clear that in end when Robert Mueller presents his final report Americans and the world will probably be presented with the view of an Russina full blow effort to subvert the American President into an asset for their use….

We know that Russina President knew that such an effort would never work with Hillary Clinton, who was a former Secretary of State and whose husband had been President for eight years….

But a New York Real Estate guy, who owed monety to Russian’s and who liked the adoration that could thrown on him in trips to Moscow?…He was, and appear’s to have been an easy mark….

And STILL is trying to cuddle up to the Russian President…

One can come to no other conclusion as the steady reports of the Russian contact’s become public…

In addition, Mueller is bound to produce charges from his garnd juries against just about EVERYBODY who has sat down with his FBI agents and prosecutors and lied about this…..That is sure to include Donald Trump’s son, Donald Jr. and Jared Kushner….

The President is sure to write pardon’s for the those two….

But it will remain to be seen if the New York State Attorney General will or has impaneled his own grand jury to go after the Trump family and others where the pardon’s don’t count….

A senior Russian official who claimed to be acting at the behest of President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia tried in May 2016 to arrange a meeting between Mr. Putin and Donald J. Trump, according to several people familiar with the matter.

The news of this reached the Trump campaign in a very circuitous way. An advocate for Christian causes emailed campaign aides saying that Alexander Torshin, the deputy governor of the Russian central bank who has been linked both to Russia’s security services and organized crime, had proposed a meeting between Mr. Putin and Mr. Trump. The subject line of the email, turned over to Senate investigators, read, “Russian backdoor overture and dinner invite,” according to one person who has seen the message.

The proposal made its way to the senior levels of the Trump campaign before Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and a top campaign aide, sent a message to top campaign officials rejecting it, according to two people who have seen Mr. Kushner’s message.

Though the meeting never happened, Mr. Torshin’s request is the latest example of how the Russian government intensified its effort to contact and influence the Trump campaign last year as Mr. Trump was closing in on the Republican presidential nomination. It came just weeks after a self-described intermediary for the Russian government told a Trump campaign aide, George Papadopoulos, that the Russians had “dirt” on Mr. Trump’s rival, Hillary Clinton, in the form of “thousands of emails.”

Soon after Mr. Torshin’s outreach fizzled, Donald Trump Jr., the president’s eldest son, arranged a meeting at Trump Tower after being told that a Russian lawyer with ties to the Kremlin would bring damaging information about Mrs. Clinton to the meeting….

WikiLeaks and Donald Trump Jr. connections….

Robert Mueller’s people HAVE to have the intercepts of these contacts….

The contacts are just MORE evidence of how extensive the Russian operation was to make sure Hillary Clinton did NOT win the election last November….

Just before the stroke of midnight on September 20, 2016, at the height of last year’s presidential election, the WikiLeaks Twitter account sent a private direct message to Donald Trump Jr., the Republican nominee’s oldest son and campaign surrogate. “A PAC run anti-Trump site putintrump.org is about to launch,” WikiLeaks wrote. “The PAC is a recycled pro-Iraq war PAC. We have guessed the password. It is ‘putintrump.’ See ‘About’ for who is behind it. Any comments?” (The site, which has since become a joint project with Mother Jones, was founded by Rob Glaser, a tech entrepreneur, and was funded by Progress for USA Political Action Committee.)

The next morning, about 12 hours later, Trump Jr. responded to WikiLeaks. “Off the record I don’t know who that is, but I’ll ask around,” he wrote on September 21, 2016. “Thanks.”

The messages, obtained by The Atlantic, were also turned over by Trump Jr.’s lawyers to congressional investigators. They are part of a long—and largely one-sided—correspondence between WikiLeaks and the president’s son that continued until at least July 2017. The messages show WikiLeaks, a radical transparency organization that the American intelligence community believes was chosen by the Russian government to disseminate the information it had hacked, actively soliciting Trump Jr.’s cooperation. WikiLeaks made a series of increasingly bold requests, including asking for Trump’s tax returns, urging the Trump campaign on Election Day to reject the results of the election as rigged, and requesting that the president-elect tell Australia to appoint Julian Assange ambassador to the United States….

Donald Trump Jr. made conditional promises to the Russian’s for Clinton campaign dirt….

Those possible future promise’s where made to a Russian lawyer by Trump’s son, who also had Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort in attendance in the room…

The lawyer , Natalia Veselnitskaya, made clear that the Russian government wanted something in return….

American civilans are prohibited from making foreign policy actions with other countries…The Mueller people HAVE to have this on their radar…

The lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, said in a two-and-a-half-hour interview in Moscow that she would tell these and other things to the Senate Judiciary Committee on condition that her answers be made public, something it hasn’t agreed to. She has received scores of questions from the committee, which is investigating possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign. Veselnitskaya said she’s also ready — if asked — to testify to Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Her June 9, 2016 encounter with Donald Trump Jr., President Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and then campaign manager Paul Manafort in New York plays a key role in allegations that the campaign worked with Russia to defeat Clinton.

Veselnitskaya said she went to the New York meeting to show Trump campaign officials that major Democratic donors had evaded U.S. taxes and to lobby against the so-called Magnitsky law that punishes Russian officials for the murder of a Russian tax accountant who accused the Kremlin of corruption….

Mueller Trump probe update for 9/20/17…Requests for internal White House Trump communication info…

The Mueller investigator’s are peeling back the nuts and bolts of the early Donald Trump efforts to set up contacts with the Russian’s and information about Trump’s efforts to stop prying into his actions including the Comey firing

Over the last month it has become clear that the investigation seeks to get  a clear and factual picture of Donald Trump and others actions during the campaign and afterwards….(Manafort has been told he will be charged)

Trump’s lawyers seem too be going out of their way to be seen as providing ANYTHING they can find…..But the White House Counselor is concerned about the boundaries of a President’s private executive privilege ….

While the newly revealed requests by the Special Counsel’s office are focused on Trump’s actions related to Russia and those actions by his staff and campaign staff…

It is unknown if Mueller is looking at Trump’s financial dealings , which had been what some through would be occurring….

It should be mentioned that New York State Attorney General Scheideriman also interested in the Manafort case and has previously gone after Donald Trump on financial irregulars….

Based on the document request to the White House, there is no indication that Mr. Mueller is pressing to examine Mr. Trump’s personal finances or business dealings — areas the president has said should be off limits. It is not clear whether Mr. Mueller has made separate document requests elsewhere to examine those subjects.

Mr. Mueller has asked for all internal White House communications about numerous former campaign officials, including Paul J. Manafort, the former campaign chairman who is now under federal investigation. The document request also seeks communications about Mr. Trump’s campaign foreign policy team: Carter Page, J. D. Gordon, Keith Kellogg, George Papadopoulos, Walid Phares and Joseph E. Schmitz.

Of the 13 subjects in Mr. Mueller’s document request, four are related to Mr. Flynn. The retired lieutenant general was fired in February after it was revealed that he misled Vice President Mike Pence about December phone calls he had with Mr. Kislyak, the Russian ambassador at the time.

American officials said Mr. Flynn had told the vice president that he had only exchanged holiday greetings with Mr. Kislyak, when in fact the two men had discussed economic sanctions against Russia. The phone calls took place in late December, around the same time the Obama administration was announcing sanctions to punish Russia for what American officials said was a Russian campaign to disrupt the November presidential election.

F.B.I. agents interviewed Mr. Flynn about the phone calls, and the special counsel has requested all internal White House communications about the F.B.I. interview. Mr. Mueller has also asked for documents about how the White House responded to concerns raised by the Justice Department that Mr. Flynn might be subject to Russian blackmail for misleading Mr. Pence about the calls.

Three of Mr. Mueller’s requests focus on Mr. Comey’s firing. The special counsel wants any White House documents about the decision-making that led to Mr. Comey’s firing, and about all meetings Mr. Comey had with Mr. Trump…..

Update….

Mueller asked WH for phone records on Air Force One statement

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has asked the White House to turn over all its documents related to Donald Trump Jr.’s initial statement on a meeting with a Russian lawyer at Trump Tower.

The statement, which was reportedly drafted on Air Force One and approved by President Trump, was later shown to be false after Trump Jr. released his email correspondence about setting up the meeting…..

Trump Personally Dictated Son’s Misleading Statement

Image result for trump and Trump jr

The guy just doesn’t care and won’t stop….

“On the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit in Germany last month, President Trump’s advisers discussed how to respond to a new revelation that Trump’s oldest son had met with a Russian lawyer during the 2016 campaign — a disclosure the advisers knew carried political and potentially legal peril,” the Washington Postreports.

“The strategy, the advisers agreed, should be for Donald Trump Jr. to release a statement to get ahead of the story. They wanted to be truthful, so their account couldn’t be repudiated later if the full details emerged.”

“But within hours, at the president’s direction, the plan changed. Flying home from Germany on July 8 aboard Air Force One, Trump personally dictated a statement in which Trump Jr. said he and the Russian lawyer had ‘primarily discussed a program about the adoption of Russian children’ when they met in June 2016… The claims were later shown to be misleading.”…

Trump Jr. and Manafort will NOT do a public hearing before the Senate…

Thought this was gonna happen…

Made NO sense for the two to be out there testifying with Mueller looking at them….

“Both Donald Trump, Jr. and Paul Manafort, through their attorneys, have agreed to negotiate to provide the committee with documents and be interviewed by committee members and staff prior to a public hearing,” the lawmakers said.

Feinstein and Grassley, the panel’s top two lawmakers, left the door open to subpoenaing either of the men in the future if they stopped cooperating.

“We will not issue subpoenas for them tonight requiring their presence at Wednesday’s hearing but reserve the right to do so in the future,” they said…..

Trump Jr. and Russian influence Pre-Knowledge?

It just keep’s becoming MORE obvious …..

I’m sure Mueller and FBI will be on this …..

Donald Trump Jr. was interviewed by Sean Hannity on Fox News on Tuesday.

They SHOULD be….

(Anybody STILL wondering WTF Hillary Clinton is bitter?)

The inner circle of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign knew that the Russian government preferred that Trump win the 2016 election. They knew that the Russian government was prepared to help. And what’s more, Donald Trump Jr. expressed delight at the prospect.

“I love it.’’

It remains to be seen what the candidate himself knew of the potentially illegal plot — because that’s what it was — that was outlined in advance of the June 2016 meeting between Trump Jr., Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, and campaign manager Paul Manafort. But what is glaringly obvious now is that the campaign was lying — repeatedly, publicly, and emphatically denying any Russian involvement or backing of the Trump campaign — beginning at least six weeks after they took the meeting with a “Russian government attorney’’ who was said to be ready to pass along incriminating information about Hillary Clinton…..

Trump Jr. follows his father with a foot in the mouth ‘Gas chamber Holocaust’ mention…

Like Father…..

Like Son….

Only in the world of Trump, can a valid point be turned into a mini controversy. Donald Trump Jr. was doing an interview on a local radio station in Philadelphia when he started talking about the media and how they have been treating Hillary Clinton vs. Republicans, and of course his father, Donald Trump.

Here is what was said:

“The media has been her number one surrogate in this,” he said in an interview on 1210 WPHT radio in Philadelphia with host Chris Stigall. “Without the media, this wouldn’t even be a contest, but the media has built her up. They’ve let her slide on every in-discrepancy, on every lie, on every DNC game trying to get Bernie Sanders out of this thing. If Republicans were doing that, they’d be warming up the gas chamber right now.”

Immediately, there was discussion and debate over whether or not the reference was to the Holocaust and yet another wink and nod to the alt-right fan base the Trump campaign has engaged previously.

Whether it was a Holocaust reference or not, this is another case of team Trump making a valid point yet completely ruining it by saying something stupid…..

The Kasich could have been the Trump VP story…

The NY Times is out with a piece that seems to have been sent to them to make Ohio Governor Kasich and Donald Trump, Jr. look important….And point to a truism about Donald Trump and his lack of focus on any details….

As a candidate, Kasich declared in March that Trump was “really not prepared to be president of the United States,” and the following month he took the highly unusual step of coordinating with his rival Senator Ted Cruz in an effort to deny Trump the nomination. But according to the Kasich adviser (who spoke only under the condition that he not be named), Donald, Jr. wanted to make him an offer nonetheless: Did he have any interest in being the most powerful vice president in history?

When Kasich’s adviser asked how this would be the case, Donald Jr. explained that his father’s vice president would be in charge of domestic and foreign policy.

Then what, the adviser asked, would Trump be in charge of?

“Making America great again” was the casual reply…..
