The Daily Caller ^ | 02/08/2018 | Chuck Ross

Posted on 02/09/2018 2:51:27 PM PST by detective

At least four separate coincidences have emerged as the public learns more information about the unverified Steele dossier and how it was crafted.

The origin story of the 35-page document was pretty simple at the outset. Fusion GPS, which was investigating then-presidential candidate Donald Trump, hired former British spy Christopher Steele to write the dossier.

“Where’s Sessions?”..........

Perhaps he’s on “Administrative Leave”. He must be waiting until all the “SHTF” stuff settles to a manageable level so it can be sorted out BEFORE any charges come forth. I hope it’s the latter.

If NOT, we damn sure NEED a new Attorney General.

With respect, when he “disclosed” isn’t the question. It’s why Warner first went unilateral and demanded no paper trail. (That strike you as straight up?) And why Steele’s way of reaching Congress was via Russian oligarch lobbyist, rather than, say, calling Senate switchboard.

Mueller, Rosenstein and Weissmann could all go to prison for their roles in the $145M Uranium One mega-bribery scandal. Motive.

Comey could go to prison for his corruption serving Clinton interests while at HSBC and Lockheed. Motive.

The report....“From Russia With Money — Hillary Clinton, the Russian Reset and Cronyism”.....
raises serious questions about the cash connections between the Clintons and participants in Hillary's
State Department-era’s failed five-year effort to improve, or “reset,” US-Russia relations.

A Moscow-based Silicon Valley-styled developer of biomed, space, nuclear and IT technologies called “Skolkovo” — allegedly poured tens of millions of dollars into the Clinton Foundation.

Hillary Clinton was at the center of these efforts author Peter Schweizer argues. “Of the 28 US, European and Russian companies that participated in Skolkovo, 17 of them were Clinton Foundation donors” or sponsored speeches by former President Bill Clinton, Schweizer told The NY Post.

<><> Hillary presented the flawed "reset button" to Russia in 2009.

<><> Circa 2010--Ex-Pres Clinton is in Moscow having a laugh w/ Putin. Bill also got a 500,000 speaking fee in Moscow.

<><> A Jan 2014 document shows that Hillary's campaign chair, John Podesta, transferred more than 25,000 of 75,000 shares in a Russian company to Leonidio Holdings LLC, an address listed as his daughter Megan Rouse’s Shannon Court home in Dublin. Rouse operates Megan Rouse Financial Planning from that same address. ====================================================== NOTE......after the Hillary email fiasco, the FBI expanded its email probe to include the possible “intersection” of Clinton Foundation and State Dept business.

<><> Then-SoS Hillary approved a deal that allowed Russia to acquire 20 percent of all US uranium production capacity.....entities with vested interests in seeing the deal go through donated $2.5 million to the Clintons......

<><> before the uranium deal was finalized (as insurance?) Bill Clinton gave a speech in Moscow, and was paid a cool $500,000.


NYT REPORT: As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation.

Uranium One Company chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million. Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations, as well.


The NYT report noted that these uranium investors also donated to the Clinton Foundation, as follows:

<><> Canadian mining mogul, Frank Giustra, globe-trotting pal of Bill donated $31.3 million and a pledge for $100 million more to the Clinton Foundation. Giustra built a company that later merged with Uranium One. Seems to have facilitated the uranium sell-off.

<><> Canadian Ian Telfer—donated $2.35 million to the Clinton Foundation. Mining investor who was chairman of Uranium One when an arm of the Russian government, Rosatom, acquired it.

<><>Paul Reynolds—donated $1 million to $5 million to the Clinton Foundation Adviser on 2007 UrAsia-Uranium One merger. Later helped raise $260 million for the company.

<><>Frank Holmes-—donated $250,000 to $500,000 to the Clinton Foundation. Chief Executive of U.S. Global Investors Inc., which held $4.7 million in Uranium One shares in the first quarter of 2011.

<><> Canadian Neil Woodyer-—Founded Endeavour Mining with Giustra—donated $50,000 to $100,000 to the Clinton Foundation. Adviser to Uranium One.

<><> GMP Securities Ltd.-—Donating portion of profits to the Clinton Foundation. Worked on debt issue that raised $260 million for Uranium One. (could also be part of the money-laundering apparat---aided and abetted under cover of the "do-good foundations.")

A while ago there was a story that Natalia Veselnitskaya (?) had to get personal approval from Lynch to even be in the country, and that Natalia Veselnitskaya (?) met with Fusion-GPS before and after the meeting at the Trump tower. Was that a false story - what happened?

18 Nov 2017: Fox News: Fusion GPS official met with Russian operative before and after Trump Jr. sit-down
By Catherine Herridge, Pamela K. Browne, Cyd Upson
The co-founder of Fusion GPS, the firm behind the unverified Trump dossier, met with a Russian lawyer before and after a key meeting she had last year with Trump’s son, Fox News has learned. The contacts shed new light on how closely tied the firm was to Russian interests, at a time when it was financing research to discredit then-candidate Donald Trump...

At that time, Fox News has learned that bank records show Fusion GPS was paid by a law firm for work on behalf of a Kremlin-linked oligarch while paying former British spy Christopher Steele to dig up dirt on Trump through his Russian contacts.
But hours before the Trump Tower meeting on June 9, 2016, Fusion co-founder and ex-Wall Street Journal reporter Glenn Simpson was with Veselnitskaya in a Manhattan federal courtroom, a confidential source told Fox News. Court records reviewed by Fox News, email correspondence and published reports corroborate the pair’s presence together. The source told Fox News they also were together after the Trump Tower meeting...

Simpson and Fusion GPS were hired by BakerHostetler, which represented Russian firm Prevezon through Veselnitskaya...

Or he was told to STFU until everyone was in the kill zone on the advice of some very astute military officers advising POTUS.
