Donald Trump’s Brazen Collusion With Russia Highlighted by Flynn Connection

In the history of the United States, we have never had a President who conspired with Russia to manipulate the results of an election or to violate the rule of law.  Donald Trump has made history.  Christopher Steele, a former MI6 officer, authored a report months ago regarding a  possible collusion between the the Trump and the Kremlin.  The indication was that Russia had a hand in the election of Donald Trump.

Steele has confirmed in a court filing earlier this month that he handed a memorandum compiled in December to a “senior UK government national security official acting in his official capacity” of a connection between Trump and Russia.

The court papers say Steele decided to pass on the information he had collected because it was “of considerable importance in relation to alleged Russian interference in the US presidential election”, that it “had implications for the national security of the US and the UK” and “needed to [be] analysed and further investigated/verified”.

The December memo alleged that four Trump representatives traveled to Prague in August or September in 2016 for “secret discussions with Kremlin representatives and associated operators/hackers”, about how to pay hackers secretly for penetrating Democratic party computer systems and “contingency plans for covering up operations”.

Between March and September, the December memo alleges, the hackers used botnets and porn traffic to transmit viruses, plant bugs and steal data online from Democratic party leadership. Two of the hackers had been “recruited under duress by the FSB” the memo said. The hackers were paid by the Trump organisation, but were under the control of Vladimir Putin’s presidential administration.

It has now come to light that Flynn was paid about $33,000 by Russia’s state-owned news agency, Russia Today, for a speech he gave in Moscow in 2015, but he did not disclose the payment on his security clearance application in January 2016, according to the House oversight committee.  However recent information has come to light that Flynn collected  nearly $68,000 in fees and expenses from Russia-related entities in 2015, a higher amount than was previously known.

The newly released documents show that Flynn was also paid $11,250 that year by the U.S. subsidiary of a Russian cybersecurity firm, Kaspersky Lab, and another $11,250 by a U.S. air cargo company affiliated with the Volga-Dnepr Group, which is owned by a Russian businessman. The cyberfirm and the airline said the payments were made for speeches Flynn delivered in Washington.

The new disclosures come as Flynn’s interactions with Russia have been under scrutiny. Flynn resigned 24 days after taking office amid reports that he misled Vice President Pence about the nature of his contacts in December with the Russian ambassador.

Michael Flynn is Donald Trump’s “favorite general.” Politico wrote that Flynn “shaped some of Trump’s views, including disdain for the recent nuclear agreement with Iran and calls for a far more aggressive strategy to confront Islamic extremism at home and abroad.”

Flynn is a retired three-star US army general and the former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), serving in that role under Obama from 2012 to 2014.

In February of 2017 Trump described Flynn as “a wonderful man” and somebody who had been “treated very, very, unfairly by the media.”

The House Oversight Committee has announced that there is “No evidence that Flynn complied with law.”  In an effort to gain more information, the Oversight Committee has requested documents from the White House.  The White House has refused to comply.

“I honestly do not understand why the White House is covering up for Michael Flynn,” Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) said at a joint appearance with other Democrats criticizing President Trump’s first 100 days in office.

“It makes the American people think the White House has something to hide. There is obviously a paper trail that the White House does not want our committee to follow.”

It has now been revealed that  Michael Flynn was warned by the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2014 against accepting foreign payments as he entered retirement, according to new documents obtained by the House oversight committee.

Flynn has offered to testify before federal and congressional investigators in their ongoing probe into Russian meddling in the US elections, but only if he is granted immunity.
If Flynn testifies, there is a real risk that Trump himself will be implicated in this scandal. If he is Trump may only have pussy to grab in prison rather than in the White House.

    This is all Obama’s fault. That non-‘all-white’ Muslim foreign born community organizer is still up to no good. And Michelle, too – how dare she tell the Sarah Palins what to eat – turn her vegetable (watermelon?) garden into a gun factory already.

    Huh, Trump?

    ps. Does anyone know where one can get the ringtone of “US Marshalls force-entering the Oval Office”?

  2. I read elsewhere that Sean Spicer tried to flip responsibility for Flynn to the Obama administration. As a general, Flynn has security clearance for the WH. Apparently then Trump’s minions didn’t have to do any “extreme vetting” to see if Flynn was suitable for a national security role. Another attempt at deflection by der Fuhrer.

    Also, Flynn was warned before his retirement that he could not engage with any foreign power in any role. Seems pretty straightforward for anyone in the military, let alone a general, so any protestations on Flynn’s part that he got paid by the Russians ‘innocently’ are bogus.

    Last, Flynn’s son is an Alt-Right creep who retweets Alex Jones-type conspiracy theories…and Dad Michael retweeted his son’s retweets. We are lucky he was found out for his Russia connection because he would have been one of the many wingnuts in this already disturbing Cabinet.

  3. It is obvious Flynn took the money – what I find surprising is that he sold out so cheaply!! His reputation – such as it is – has been tarnished. He will be a “marked” man for the rest of his life. What a fool.
    I do soooo hope his connection to Trump will help in the Trump take-down.

    1. Pat,
      I think the fact that Flynn will only testify if offered immunity, and that Trump has refused to produce any documents,is an indication that this is something that could be an impeachable offense.

  5. I don’t take collusion with Russia lightly. I don’t find lifting sanctions on enemies acceptable. I have a big interest in our planet. I don’t want arsenic in drinking water nor cancer from harmful lying corporations. We have came along ways to fight such danger.

    Citizen United, fox nation and NRA have solely caused our country to trend backwards. We now witness hateful evil and toxic waste from swamps of liars.

    Each and every one of them must be publicly shamed and held accountable for damages, charged and convicted of their crimes against humanity.

  6. Malia – Back in July 2016 when Trump said “Russia, I hope you can find Hillary’s 30,000 missing emails”, that should have been a red flag to everyone! Flynn, Manafort, Epshteyn, Page, Kushner, and possibly Trump met with the Russian ambassador – Kislyak – during the campaign and at the GOP convention! How much did Trump know and when did he know it? He obviously had his head in the sand if he didn’t know that Flynn was fired by Obama in 2014. But, for Trump and Sean Spicer to blame Obama on the vetting of Flynn is ludicrous!
    This might be old news to you, Malia, but nonetheless it is intriguing. There was a dinner Flynn attended in Russia for the Kremlin run organization – Russia Today – and Flynn is photographed with Putin. Not sure if this is the dinner where he was paid to speak or not. Guess who else was photographed at the same dinner? Jill Stein! Yes, Jill Stein, who ran for POTUS in on the Green Party ticket. Why was she there? Was she a paid speaker? Was she there with Flynn? Or, did she decide to take a trip to Russia and attend the dinner on her own? Or did the Russia Today organization invite her? Jill Stein should be questioned under oath! She might have valuable information regarding Flynn or Trump and the election. Or was she complicit in the Trump Russia scandal? Remember she received large sums of money (presumably from donations) to pay for re-counts after Trump won the election. The FBI needs to follow the money!
