1) George Papadopoulos, former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser, pleaded guilty in October to making false statements to the FBI.
2) Michael Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser, pleaded guilty in December to making false statements to the FBI.
3) Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chair, was indicted in October in Washington, DC on charges of conspiracy, money laundering, false statements, and failure to disclose foreign assets — all related to his work for Ukrainian politicians before he joined the Trump campaign. He’s pleaded not guilty on all counts. Then, in February, Mueller filed a new case against him in Virginia, with tax, financial, and bank fraud charges.
4) Rick Gates, a former Trump campaign aide and Manafort’s longtime junior business partner, was indicted on similar charges to Manafort. But he has now agreed to a plea deal with Mueller’s team, pleading guilty to just one false statements charge and one conspiracy charge.
5-20) 13 Russian nationals and three Russian companies were indicted on conspiracy charges, with some also being accused of identity theft. The charges related to a Russian propaganda effort designed to interfere with the 2016 campaign. The companies involved are the Internet Research Agency, often described as a “Russian troll farm,” and two other companies that helped finance it. The Russian nationals indicted include 12 of the agency’s employees and its alleged financier, Yevgeny Prigozhin.
21) Richard Pinedo: This California man pleaded guilty to an identity theft charge in connection with the Russian indictments, and has agreed to cooperate with Mueller.
22) Alex van der Zwaan: This London lawyer pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI about his contacts with Rick Gates and another unnamed person based in Ukraine.
New evidence proves that a foreign government meddled in the 2016 US Election. But the government identified is the UK, not Russia!
After more than a year of the Mueller investigation, millions of dollars and the Mainstream Media’s (MSM) relentless attack on President Trump, what do we have? Nothing really.
President Trump tweeting in February that if the goal of Russia was to create discord in the US then they have succeeded. “They are laughing their asses off in Moscow. Get smart America!”
If it was the GOAL of Russia to create discord, disruption and chaos within the U.S. then, with all of the Committee Hearings, Investigations and Party hatred, they have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams. They are laughing their asses off in Moscow. Get smart America!

Since this tweet, the Russia fairy tale has fallen apart! Corrupt Mueller and his team of conflicted, biased and corrupt investigators and attorneys have found nothing related to their target, President Trump, and now their indictments are unraveling.
Far left VOX provided a list of those indicted by Mueller in February –
The largest group in the above list, the 13 Russians and 3 Russian Company’s, indicted by Mueller were expected to be no-shows as their court cases arrived. Some people believe that the 13 Russians listed in the indictment are not even real people. They’re certainly nowhere to be found and no doubt never will come forward, even if they were real.
In this past week’s case involving one of the company’s listed by Mueller, Concord Management, Mueller’s attorney Jeannie Rhee (who previously represented the Clinton Foundation and Hillary Clinton) suggested that the Russians indicted by the Mueller team worked for Concord Management. But the attorneys for Concord management stated that they never have worked for their client.
Mueller’s corrupt and conflicted attorney Rhee also was put on the spot when Concord Management’s attorneys noted that the second company indicted by the Mueller team, Concord Catering, was not in existence at the time Mueller’s team alleged they committed crimes (others suggest their crime may really be too much Russian Dressing on a tossed salad).
Concord Management’s attorneys noted that the Facebook posts identified by Mueller’s team were all in Russian and Rhee and her team admitted having not translated them to English (so who knows what they said or how they somehow helped President Trump win the election?). Overall it is becoming clear that Mueller’s indictments of the Russia individuals and entities supposedly impacting the election are a farce and therefore these cases may likely be tossed just like the salad mentioned above.
General Flynn’s case is also falling apart. The original judge overseeing the Flynn case, Judge Rudolph Contreras, was recused and we still do not know why or by whom? Contreras is also a FISA Court Judge and he may have signed off on the FISA warrant to spy on the General in the first place. He also is a friend of former Mueller team members, the corrupt Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. In their text messages, they text about meeting with the judge for dinner.
The new judge overseeing the case has asked Mueller’s team to provide all information to the General that he apparently was not provided when he plead guilty to lying to the Mueller team. The FBI agents who interviewed General Flynn stated that they did not believe he lied! It’s looking more and more like the General was set up and his case will be tossed as well.
Manafort was indicted for two cases. The first case is being prosecuted in Washington DC. Manafort is being charged with not filling out some forms in prior years starting in 2005. Clearly these indictments have nothing to do with Russian collusion in the 2016 election.
Manafort challenged the case by challenging the legality of Mueller’s investigation. He claimed that his case should be tossed because the investigation is not constitutional. When Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein set up the investigation he did not have a crime and he set the scope of Mueller’s work way too big, basically claiming that Mueller could look into anything he wanted. Both of these claims were valid.
However, the judge overseeing Manafort’s first case is Judge Amy Berman Jackson, an Obama appointee. Judge Jackson has a horrible record and has seen her verdicts overturned by the Supreme Court. She tossed Manafort’s plea.
Judge Jackson should be impeached and there may be support for this as the Judge of Manafort’s second case challenged the Mueller team on exactly the above two points. Also, the Chairman of the US Senate’s Judiciary Committee, Chuck Grassley, late last week sent a set of questions on this very point to Rosenstein to answer.
Manafort’s second case is another fruadulent case. Manafort obtained loans to pay his attorney fees by using some of his properties as collateral. Mueller’s team charged that the amounts on the fair value of the properties were not accurate and therefore charged him with bank fraud. This case was moved to Virginia per Manafort’s option and a good thing. The DC courts are filled with Obama crooks (i.e. Contreras, Jackson, etc.).
Judge T. S. Ellis III oversees Manafort’s case in Virginia. According to FOX News in early May –
A federal judge on Friday harshly rebuked Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team during a hearing for ex-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort – suggesting they lied about the scope of the investigation, are seeking “unfettered power” and are more interested in bringing down the president.
Judge Ellis has also requested an un-redacted scope document from Mueller’s team and he received it on Friday. Based on recent events this case may be tossed. Of the other individuals indicted by Mueller, they all appear to have been coerced into pleas in a manner similar to the way they worked over General Flynn.
As the Russia meddling into the 2016 US election unwinds, the meddling by the UK, is becoming surprisingly more apparent.
We’ve known for over a year that the Clinton campaign and the FBI worked with former UK MI6 spy Christopher Steele, who authored a dossier of salacious statements about President Trump. Steele was reportedly paid by Fusion GPS for the document.
Steele was paid $168,000 by Glenn Simpson’s company Fusion GPS for the series of memos containing information that was selectively briefed to journalists approved by Simpson and used by the FBI.
The Steele dossier was never verified and is suspected of being a total fiction. This act alone by a spy from the UK is troubling enough, but that is not it.
George Papadopoulos, the lower level campaign worker for the Trump campaign, appears to have been targeted by three individuals with ties to British and/or U.S. Intelligence: Joseph Mifsud, Alexander Downer and Stefan Halper.
Mifsud and Papadopoulos obtained positions at an organization named the Centre for International Energy and Natural Resources Law & Security. Papadopoulos was a ‘nobody’ and the Centre sketchy at best. Mifsud vanished in early November 2017, shortly after Papadopoulos was in the news and indicted. His whereabouts are still unknown.
Although the common story is that Mifsud is a Russian Agent, many ties seem to lead [him] back to UK Intelligence. Julian Assange put out a Twitter Thread noting the connection between Mifsud and UK Intelligence.
Although, not a Brit, Alexander Downer is the Australian individual who apparently overheard Papadopoulos talk about Trump and Russia in a bar which alerted the FBI to the story and their eventual spy program on Trump. This story has been refuted for months.
The Papadopoulos/Downer meeting has been portrayed as a chance encounter in a bar. That does not appear to be the case….Downer has direct ties to UK Intelligence firm Hakluyt where he served on the Advisory Board from 2008-2014.
Shortly after the Papadopoulos and Downer chance encounter, Peter Strzok was in London per texts released by the FBI. “Strzok texts suggest he was in London on August 3, 2016.” The corrupt FBI’s investigation into Trump officially started a few days earlier.
One individual all over the Internet and social media by the name of Stefan Halper has been identified as a potential FBI spy into the Trump campaign. (Note that some believe that Obama may have had more than one spy on the Trump campaign). The most intriguing individual related to Papadopoulos is Halper.
According to Jeff Carlson at theMarketswork –
My guess is Papadopoulos never knew what hit him. A young man, suddenly thrust into a position beyond his experience, Papadopoulos made for an easy intelligence target.
Carter Page almost certainly discussed the just completed Moscow trip with his host, Stefan Halper, during the London symposium.
It’s now being reported that Devin Nunes has learned the identity of a “top secret intelligence source” that was part of the FBI’s Counterintelligence Investigation.
I think there’s a decent chance that source is Stefan Halper.
Halper had contact with both Papadopulos and Carter Page. Halper has connections to UK Intelligence and US Intelligence. Halper met with Carter Page just days after Page’s Moscow trip.
Other Internet sleuths tied Halper to the Obama team of crooks. Halper was paid more than $400,000 in 2016 for his efforts to set Papadopulos up and get him to sing to the Australia diplomat about Hillary’s emails being held by Russia. Halper and others planted this information on Papadopulos before he shared this with the Aussie in a drunken London pub discussion.
Additional research shows that Halper was a classmate of impeached President Bill Clinton. Halper apparently knew Bill Clinton well in their days at Oxford. He later worked as an Advisor to the Clinton Administration.
Hannigan had been Head of the GCHQ and he suddenly resigned in January of this year –
Hannigan only took over at the UK’s surveillance agency in November 2014 to oversee a more open approach after revelations by the National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden put GCHQ on the defensive in 2013.
His sudden resignation – he informed staff just hours before making this decision public – prompted speculation that it might be related to British concerns over shared intelligence with the US in the wake of Donald Trump becoming president.
But the GCHQ press release stressed his decision was exclusively for family reasons. As well as his ill wife, Hannigan has two elderly parents to look after. He will remain in post until a successor is appointed.
It’s still not known, what, if any connection to the Trump – Russia collusion fantasy, Hannigan may have had.
