    Another Media ‘Bombshell’ On Trump-Russia Turned Out To Be B.S.

    The UK government has ended an investigation into the consulting firm Cambridge Analytica and its affiliate SCL Group, finding scant evidence suggesting either worked illicitly with Russia to influence British and US elections.

    The findings also debunked assertions that Russian interference skewed the results of the British referendum to leave the European Union.
    New York Times reporter Nick Confessore laid out the highlights of Denham’s report on Twitter on Wednesday:
    “All those things you read about the thousands of data points CA had on American voters? Most of it was commercially available to anyone with the $. Points to larger issues of data & privacy but not something unique to CA,” Confessore said, noting that the ICO found Cambridge Analytica obtained most Facebook data through commercial means.

    “[The ICO] didn’t find any new evidence of a connection between CA’s campaign work and Russian interference in 2016,” Confessore continued. “[The ICO} reiterated its earlier finding that Cambridge Analytica did not work on the Brexit campaign beyond some early discussions.”


    Another Swing and a Miss for the Russia Collusion narrative!
    I remember in 2018 when it was reported by the NYT, CNN, MSDNC, etc., before ANY investigation had been done, that this was a sure-fire case of the Trump campaign colluding with the Russians! When in reality, it was just a presidential campaign hiring a consulting firm, one that had worked with many others before, and "sought-out" the president, and were initially told "NO" 2 or 3 times before being picked to do the job.
    Another LIE from the media and the democrats DEBUNKED!!!

    The Committee found that the Russian government engaged in an aggressive, multifaceted effort to influence, or attempt to influence, the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.
    Parts of this effort are outlined in the Committee's earlier volumes on election security, social
    media, the Obama Administration's response to the threat, and the January 2017 Intelligence
    Community Assessment (ICA).
    (U) The fifth and final volume focuses on the counterintelligence threat, outlining a wide
    range of Russian efforts to influence the Trump Campaign and the 2016 election. In this volume
    the Committee lays out its findings in detail by looking at many aspects of the
    counterintelligence threat posed by the Russian influence operation. For example, the
    Committee examined Paul Manafort' s connections to Russian influence actors and the FBI' s
    treatment of reporting produced by Christopher Steele. While the Committee does not describe
    the final result as a complete picture, this volume provides the most comprehensive description
    to date of Russia's activities and the threat they posed. This volume presents this information in
    topical sections in order to address coherently and in detail the wide variety of Russian actions.
    The events explained in these sections in many cases overlap, and references in each section will
    direct the reader to those overlapping parts of the volume. Immediately below is a summary of
    key findings from several sections.

    Re: Let the truth be known

    Paul Manafort ,
    (U) Paul Manafort's connections to Russia and Ukraine began in approximately late
    2004 with the start of his work for Oleg Deripaska and other Russia-aligned oligarchs in
    Ukraine. The Committee found that Deripaska conducts influence operations, frequently in
    countries where he has a significant economic interest. The Russian government coordinates
    with and directs Deripaska on many of his influence operations.
    (U) From approximately 2004 to 2009, Manafort implemented these influence operations
    on behalf ofDeripaska, including a broad, multi-million dollar political influence campaign
    directed at numerous countries of interest to Deripaska and the Russian government. ProRussian Ukrainian oligarchs with deep economic ties to Russia also paid Manafort tens of
    millions of dollars and formed strong ties with Manafort independent of Deripaska.
    (U) Manafort hired and worked increasingly closely with a Russian national, Konstantin
    Kilimnik. Kilimnik is a Russian intelligence officer. Kilimnik became an integral part of
    Manafort's operations in Ukraine and Russia, serving as Manafort's primary liaison to Deripaska
    and eventually managing Manafort's office in Kyiv. Kilimnik and Manafort formed a close and
    lasting relationship that endured to the 2016 U.S. elections. and beyond.
    (U) Prior to joining the Trump Campaign in March 2016 and continuing throughout his
    time 6n the Campaign, Manafort directly and indirectly communicated with Kilimnik, Deripaska,
    and the pro-Russian oligarchs in Ukraine. On numerous occasions, Manafort sought to secretly
    share internal Campaign information with Kilimnik. The Committee was unable to reliably
    determine why Manafort shared sensitive internal polling data or Campaign strategy with
    Kilimnik or with whom Kilimnik further shared that information. The Committee had limited
    insight into Kilimnik's communications with Manafort and into Kilimnik's communications with
    other individuals connected to Russian influence operations, all of whom used communications
    security practices. The Committee obtained some information suggesting Kilimnik may have
    been connected to the GRU's hack and leak operation targeting the 2016 U.S. election.
    until
    Beginning while he was Campaign chairman and continuing
    sed with Kilimnik a eace lan for eastern Ukraine that
    After the election, Manafort continued to coordinate with
    Russian persons, particularly Kilimnik and other individuals close to Deripaska, in an effort to
    undertake activities on their behalf. Manafort worked with Kilimnik starting in 2016 on
    narratives that sou ht to undermine evidence that Russia interfered in .the 2016 U.S.
    election.
    vi
    COMMITTEE SENSITIVE-RUSSIA INVESTIGATION ONLY
    COMMITTEE SENSITIVE - RUSSIA INVESTIGATION ONLY
    (U) The Committee found that Manafort's presence on the Campaign at;td proximity to
    Trump created opportunities for Russian intelligence services to exert influence over, and
    acquire confidential information on, the Trump Campaign. Taken as a whole, Manafort's highlevel access and willingness to share information with individuals closely affiliated with the
    Russian intelligence services, particularly Kilimnik and associates of Oleg Deripaska,
    represented a grave counterintelligence threat.

    Re: Let the truth be known

    The Committee found that Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the Russian
    effort to hack computer networks and accounts affiliated with the Democratic Party and leak
    information damaging to Hillary Clinton and her campaign for president. Moscow's intent was
    to harm the Clinton Campaign, tarnish an expected Clinton presidential administration, help the
    Trump Campaign after Trump became the presumptive Republican nominee, and undermine the
    U.S. democratic process.
    -WikiLeaks actively sought, and played, a key role in the Russian
    influen~ery likely knew it was assistin a Russian intelli ence influence
    effort. The Committee found si nificant indications tha
    At the time of the
    first WikiLeaks releases, the U.S. Government had not yet declared WikiLeaks a hostile
    organization and many treated itas a journalistic entity.
    (U) While the GRU and WikiLeaks were releasing hacked documents, the Trump
    Campaign sought to maximize the impact of those leaks to aid Trump's electoral
    prospects. Staff on the Trump Campaign sought advance notice about WikiLeaks releases,
    created messaging strategies to promote and share the materials in anticipation of and following
    thdr release, and encouraged further leaks. The Trump Campaign publicly undermined the
    attribution of the hack-and-leak campaign to Russia and was indifferent to whether it and
    WikiLeaks were furthering a Russian election interference effort. The Committee found no
    evidence that Campaign officials received an authoritative government notification that the hack
    was perpetrated by the Russian government before October 7, 2016, when the ODNI and DHS
    issued a joint statement to that effect. However, the Campaign was aware of the extensive media
    reporting and other private sector attribution of the hack to Russian actors prior to that point.
    (U) Trump and senior Campaign offici.als sought to obtain advance information about
    WikiLeaks's planned releases through Roger Stone. At their direction, Stone took action to gain
    vii
    COMMITTEE SENSITIVE~ RUSSIA INVESTIGATION ONLY
    inside knowledge for the Campaign and shared his purported knowledge directly with Trump
    and senior Campaign offictals on multiple occasions. Trump and the Campaign believed that
    Stone had inside information and expressed satisfaction that Stone's information suggested more
    releases would be forthcoming. The Committee could not reliably determine the extent.of
    authentic, non-public knowledge about WikiLeaks that Stone obtained and shared with the
    Campaign.

    Biden: Voters 'Don't Deserve' To Know Stance on Court Packing Before Election

    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said Friday that voters do not deserve to learn his position on expanding the Supreme Court before they head to the polls next month.
    “No, they don’t,” Biden responded to a reporter when asked if voters have a right to know his stance on the hot-button issue.
    Biden has repeatedly refused to say whether he supports Democrats’ calls to pack the Supreme Court.

    “This is the number one thing that I’ve been asked about from viewers in the past couple of days,” KTLV anchor Ross DiMattei said to Biden of the court packing issue at a campaign stop in Las Vegas.
    “Well, you’ve been asked by viewers who are probably Republicans who don’t want me to continue talking about what they’re doing to the court right now,” Biden said.


    “Sir, don’t the voters deserve to know where you stand,” the reporter asked.

    “No, they don’t deserve,” Biden said, before trailing off. “I’m not going to play his game,” he said of President Donald Trump.

    Groups like Demand Justice, which was founded by a former press secretary for Hillary Clinton and Sen. Chuck Schumer, began calling for Supreme Court expansion during the Democratic primaries.

    Biden has accused Trump of using the court packing question to distract from the Republican effort to vote on Amy Coney Barrett as a Supreme Court justice before the election.
    “He’s about to make a pick in the middle of an election. First time it’s ever been done,” Biden claimed.
    Trump has defended the push to vote on Barrett’s confirmation, noting that he has the constitutional authority to nominate a justice during his presidential term.

    So no comment on 'court packing'.. Harris Lied about Abe Lincoln nominating a Justice .. what else are they lying about?

    Pompeo Drops Clinton Bombshell: 'We’ve Got the Emails, We’re Getting Them Out'

    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said his agency is working to release a cache of Hillary Clinton’s emails, a political bombshell that he expects will hit the American people before the upcoming elections.
    Speaking to Fox News’ Dana Perino in a Friday interview, Pompeo confirmed the State Department has Clinton’s controversial emails and is now nearing a public release.
    “We’ve got the emails. We’re getting them out,” Pompeo said.
    “We’re going to get all this information out so the American people can see it.”


    Clinton’s use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state landed her at the center of a political firestorm and an investigation.

    A State Department investigation into Clinton’s private server already found 588 security violations.

    Pompeo referenced the fact that the server was discovered to have classified information on it, a clear danger when it comes to foreign actors looking to exploit weaknesses in cybersecurity.
    “It was unacceptable behavior,” Pompeo said.

    “It’s not the kind of thing that leaders do. They don’t put that kind of information out,” he added.
    “And you can see, whether it’s Russia or China or Iran or the North Koreans who want to get their hands on this kind of information, classified information needs to stay in the right places.”
    The secretary of state also confirmed his department is working to ensure no sensitive information would be leaked along with the emails.

    President Donald Trump, Pompeo said, simply would not allow officers or assets to fall into harm’s way.
    It appears that Americans won’t be kept waiting for this trove of Clinton documents and hopefully will have access to at least some of the emails before Election Day.

    “We’re doing it as fast as we can,” Pompeo said.
    “I certainly think there’ll be more to see before the election.”

    For many Americans, it’s a moment that’s been years in the making.
    A rapid development regarding the investigation into Clinton’s emails, announced less than two weeks before she faced Trump in the 2016 elections, is thought to have played a part in her shocking (for the establishment, at least) loss.
    Clinton herself blames the announcement, made by then-FBI Director James Comey, for her election defeat.
    While Hillary Clinton doesn’t have any direct involvement with the campaign of Trump’s opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, the release of her emails would undoubtedly remind the public of a high-profile Democratic scandal.
    With the content of the emails still a mystery, it’s unclear how big of an impact the documents will make.

    So with the release of information that ALL the top players in the Obama Admin KNEW that the investigation into Trump/Russia was all on the democrats shoulders, and that Obama APPROVED of this, how will this affect the election? Clearly Biden being his VP KNEW that it was all a scam, heads should roll.

    Biden Campaign Rejects Trump Campaign's Proposal To Salvage Remaining Debates

    As the prospect of facing President Donald Trump face-to-face looms, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s campaign wants less and less to do with it.
    On Wednesday, the Commission on Presidential Debates said the scheduled Oct. 15 debate would be held virtually, citing Trump’s recent hospitalization with the coronavirus and existing rules regarding individuals remaining in quarantine after testing positive.
    The president labeled the proposal “ridiculous.”

    “I’m not going to do a virtual debate,” Trump said during an interview on Fox Business. “I’m not going to waste my time at a virtual debate. That’s not what debating is all about. You sit behind a computer and do a debate. It’s ridiculous. And then they cut you off whenever they want.”
    “They’re trying to protect Biden,” he said. “Everybody is.”

    The Biden campaign’s first response was to suggest that one fewer debate be held, with the Oct. 22 showdown becoming a town hall-style forum, the format scheduled for the Oct. 15 debate, according to Fox News.
    The Trump campaign then proposed keeping two debates but changing the dates instead of the format, with one debate held Oct. 22 and the other Oct. 29. That was vetoed by the Biden campaign on the grounds that the Trump campaign cannot dictate when debates are held.

    The Trump campaign said the unilateral decision to change the format of the Oct. 15 debate was a disservice to the voters.
    “The American people should not be deprived of the chance to see the two candidates for president debate face to face two more times just because the Commission on Presidential Debates wants to protect Joe Biden,” Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien said in a statement.

    The “new virtual format” was “extremely suspect,” Stepien said.
    “As President Trump said, a virtual debate is a non-starter and would clearly be a gift to Biden because he would be relying on his teleprompter from his basement bunker,” he said.
    Although the Biden campaign said the Trump campaign was trying to dodge a town hall-style event by rejecting the virtual format, Stepien said quite the reverse was true.


    “Voters should have the opportunity to directly question Biden’s 47-year failed record of leadership,” he said. “We agree that this should happen on October 22, and accordingly, the third debate should then be shifted back one week to October 29.”

    “[T]he CPD and the media cannot hide Joe Biden forever,” he said.

    “Trump’s erratic behavior does not allow him to rewrite the calendar, and pick new dates of his choosing,” Bedingfield said. “We look forward to participating in the final debate, scheduled for October 22, which already is tied for the latest debate date in 40 years.”
    ABC News was quick to fill the Oct. 15 void, scheduling a town hall event with Biden in Philadelphia that night.

    The former vice president said he will do as the commission said and ridiculed Trump.
    “We don’t know what the president is going to do, he changes his mind every second so for me to comment on that now would be irresponsible. I think that if — I’m going to follow the commission recommendations. If he goes off and he’s going to have a rally, I’ll — I don’t know what I’ll do,” Biden said, according to Fox News.
    “You never know what’s going to come out of his mouth,” he said.

    With the indictment on the Bidens, who knows IF Biden won't be in prison shortly after the election.
