Democratic Sen. Mark Warner texted
with Russian oligarch lobbyist in effort to
contact dossier author Christopher Steele

Fox News, by Ed Henry

EXCLUSIVE – Sen. Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee who has been leading a congressional investigation into President Trump´s alleged ties to Russia, had extensive contact last year with a lobbyist for a Russian oligarch who was offering Warner access to former British spy and dossier author Christopher Steele, according to text messages obtained exclusively by Fox News. "We have so much to discuss u need to be careful but we can help our country," Warner texted the lobbyist, Adam Waldman, on March 22, 2017. "I´m in," Waldman, whose firm has ties to Hillary Clinton, texted

Comments:
The Democrats are so corrupt and dirty!! Warner should be kicked off that committee immediately! And they constantly accuse the Republicans of collusion with the Russians? This is stunning. Absolutely stunning. The comment from an aide of the worthless Richard Burr will set your hair on fire. He was ´aware´ of the contact but didn´t know the content of the messages. And he kept his mouth shut? What a completely spineless, worthless fool. If that had been Republican Warner would have been removed immediately.

What´s amazing to me is the lack of interest in all of this by the MSM. Don´t even bother bringing any of this up with your liberal friends, relatives, or acquaintances/lovers, etc.. They´ll just say you probably got this from Fox News!

#2, they are only going to report what they MUST, or what they are told by the Democrat leadership.

What´s truly amazing is how little Sen. Burr thought of the direct contact by Sen. Warner. He either knew, and was hoping it would help remove Trump back in September 2017, or he´s not up for the job of running that committee. Likely both.

When enough facts come out, the president should address the nation about it, accompanied by all those involved in uncovering the Democrat outrage. The networks are required to carry his addresses by law. They can spin all they want, but if the proven facts are exposed, there is not much the leftists can deny or spin.

...if Mueller is running an honest investigation into Russian involvement, it´s time to shine a bright light on the left. There´s getting to be a variety of "persons of interest" from that direction...

FTA: "In one text, Warner suggested he did not want Burr or any other senator included in the discussions: "Ok but I wud (sic) like to do prelim call u me and him no one else before letter just so we have to trail to start want to discuss scope first before letter no leaks."´

FTA: ""We want to do this right private in London don´t want to send letter yet cuz if we can´t get agreement wud rather not have paper trail."

FTA: "But after calls back and forth, Warner made clear that he wanted to talk to Steele directly without Burr or anyone else being involved, even though Steele was insisting through Waldman that the contact start with a bipartisan letter inviting him to cooperate with the Senate panel."

FTA: "Warner’s text messages were quietly given to the intelligence committee after he and Burr signed a joint request for the messages last June. Warner and Burr privately informed the rest of the Democratic and Republican senators on the panel of Warner´s text messages in a meeting last October."

It is absolutely stunning to me that NO ONE on that committee didn´t force the removal of Warner for his deceitful, criminal? behavior. The link below has all the members of the senate intelligence committee. I cannot believe that Tom Cotton o James Lankford would allow Warner to remain. Rubio, Cornyn, Collins and Blunt don´t surprise me. What a bunch of worthless, spineless RINOs on that committee.

Remember when Schiff went ballistic over Nunez examining secret materials on his own and took the liberty of informing President Trump of what he had discovered? Nunez temporarily stepped down from his chairmanship.

Now the shoe on on the foot of the democrats in the Senate. And what does Burr say?

This whole thing, and I mean the whole thing including, the illegal server, Clinton Foundation, DNC,Uranium One,(Russia, Russia, Russia),Fast & Furious, IRS, Bengazi, Slick Willie meeting Lynch on the tarmac, Comey, unmasking, FISA court applications etc. looks like one huge two headed octopus with thousands of tentacles reaching all through the entire federal government.

It is all connected together somehow and the singularity seems to be Obambo and Herself.

How do we clean it up? I don´t know. But, it seems like we just need to shut the whole government down and rebuild it from scratch. Oh,and I hear the weather at Gitmo is nice this time of year.

Is Warner a double agent? Burr had no clue what Warner was doing, Burr is a hapless fool who is constantly sweating and wiping his armpits with his hanky, As far as Rubio he has no clue he just sided with Warner because he´s a Democrat. How come Warner didn´t want Burr at the Steele meeting? I think the leaks got out and Warner was found out about, now he is pretending he was doing this for the comm. LIAR!

Watch POS Senator Warner spew lies about our President and Russian influence, regarding the Mueller investigation. Also, the Senator referenced the firing of former FBI Director, James Comey.

PBS News Hour Dec 20, 2017

Interesting to note, the Senator was slurring his words the entire time.

Maybe a cocktail was needed to rise and spew the garbage that came out of his mouth. Who said lying would be easy?

These people are insane.

There is even more in Sundance’s analysis of this ugly situation, posted here:

http://www.lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=935174

This complicity on the part of the entire Senate Intelligence Committee is the reason why Nunes has not shared information with them. Burr is deliberately cut off. But how scary is it that he and Warner, by virtue of their positions on this committee, are members of the Intelligence Gang of Eight, which has access to far more sensitive material than any other members of Congress.

Sundance notes that Diane Feinstein quit this committee, and was replaced by Warner. She too said nothing.

#21 is right. This is actually quite simple. If a pubbie soft pedals the scandals or remains silent, it means he/she has been on the intercepts with communications with foreign representatives. The unmasking scandal was actually a warning shot to the DC swamp that more unofficial unmasking (leaks) would occur unless everybody played ball.

I wonder if I called Steele via some video chat room, recorded everything and asked Steele to get with a few Russian oligarchs (READ: Sidney Blumenthal) to come up with more fake golden shower stories about Trump/Russia collusion, had Steele write yet another fake dossier against Trump, where the DNC would pay me 8 or 9 million for my services. Then Warner and Burr and Rubio could go to the FBI (on camera of course) and claim that they now had REAL evidence that Trump stole the election from Hillary via Russia. I´d become a millionaire, absolutely nothing would happen to me and I´d be loved by the Fourth Estate forever. Congress would make sure the truth would never come out and if it did do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about it for months or years. Plus, the Freedom Caucus would go on Hannity where pillows, mattresses, flowers, safes and home security system sales would go through the roof! You, on the other hand, will call your Rep and Senators whose interns laugh at you after you hang up; and come to blogs like Lucianne and tickle keyboards. I think that pretty much describes the pattern. Note to self: Call Christopher ASAP.

A shorter list would be the names of democrats in congress whose fingerprints are NOT all over this coup. The Constitution makes it tough to get rid of traitors and incompetents but the voting booths can still get the job done if we can find enough patriotic and honest citizens out there. If we can´t we will see more and more of this. People in certain districts seem to choose the least intelligent, greediest, most corrupt and vile candidates on the ballot.

#6, with due respect, I believe you are wrong about the networks being legally required to carry an address by the president.

But even so, the problem with President Trump was best described by Newt Gingrich, who is a friend of the president.
"He (President Trump) sometimes speaks in sentences when he should be speaking in paragraphs."
President Trump needs an interlocutor to help explain this incredibly interwoven seditious behavior on the part of Barack Obola, Hillary, and the deep state. .
And, once again, my proposal for a Lakerman Commission is important. The 9/11 commission was able to knock down some myths in public.

An activist group has launched a voter registration effort aimed at black voters at screenings of the “Black Panther” movie nationwide. Members of the Electoral Justice Project, an offshoot of the Movement for Black Lives, are seeking to motivate black voters and increase political engagement with the #WakandaTheVote campaign, the website Blavity reported. Wakanda is the fictional African nation featured in the long-anticipated Marvel film “Black Panther.” Kayla Reed, Jessica Byrd and Rukia Lumumba founded the Electoral Justice Project last year, and told Blavity that the movement has been effective “because we meet our communities where they are, whether that´s

Partial transcript as follows: NADLER: My reaction to the news is this is absolute proof of what we knew all along and what the president has denied, namely that we were attacked. This is a very serious attack against the United States by a hostile foreign power, an attack against our election process, our entire governing process. We know that the attack

The specificity here is pretty damning. The FBI released a stunning admission today admitting they received prior a specific warning about Broward County Nikolas Cruz and his threats to carry out a school shooting. The FBI took no action. (Snip) The backdrop of this admission is especially troublesome as the FBI previously also admitted they were forewarned about the Tsarnaev brothers in the Boston Marathon Bombing 2013 and did nothing; and perhaps even more disturbing was the prior warning about the 2016 Orlando Pulse Nightclub shooter Omar Mateen.

Federal deportation officers staged one of the biggest enforcement actions in years against businesses in Los Angeles this week, arresting 212 people and serving audit notices to 122 businesses who will have to prove they aren’t hiring illegal immigrants. Nearly all of those arrested were convicted criminals, according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. ICE said it targeted Los Angeles because it’s a sanctuary city, meaning it refuses to fully cooperate with federal authorities on deportations from within its jails. That means agents and officers have to go out into the community, said Thomas D. Homan, the agency’s deputy director.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is not yet done investigating whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 election after indicting 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities for seeking to interfere in the 2016 election, according to a report Friday. The indictments cover just a portion of the investigation, which is expected to continue on for months, a person familiar with the probe told Bloomberg. The probe is also seeking to determine if Trump obstructed justice, the person said. Mueller has not publicly confirmed that his team has ever looked into possible efforts obstruct justice.

The criminal indictment of 13 Russians for allegedly trying to influence “U.S. political and electoral processes” provides no evidence of any collusion between these Russians – or any other Russian officials – and the Trump campaign in the 2016 presidential race. While the description of alleged Russian activities is very troubling, it is important to note that the indictment makes no mention of any hacking or other activity that changed ballots, vote counts, or actually interfered with the election. In essence, the indictment is for trying to run the typical type of public misinformation campaign that the Soviet KGB was

Adam Rippon, the openly gay figure skater who helped the United States win a bronze medal in team competition and became one of the biggest breakout stars of the PyeongChang Olympics, has gotten his first big break before the Winter Games have even concluded. Rippon, a darling of the competition for saying things that have been at turns smart, creative, and refreshing for viewers, has been hired by NBC as a correspondent for the rest of the Games. NBC confirmed the news, first reported by USA Today, with Rippon expected to work on TV as well as the digital and

Students are in the middle of a lie-in protest outside the White House over gun laws just days after 17 people were killed in the Florida high school shooting massacre. Groups of students from Washington DC staged the protest on Monday on a road leading to the White House. They took turns lying on the road for three minutes - the same amount of time 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz went on a firing spree at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last week. Other students stood by holding signs that read ´Am I next?´ and ´Is Congress or the NRA making our

And now, ladies and gentlemen, for your viewing pleasure, the first rendition of the national anthem at a major sporting event that would be more appropriate for some steamy scene from a movie than honoring those who have fought for the United States of America. Here is Fergie singing the anthem at the NBA All-Star Game on Sunday. Viewer discretion advised: (Video) Reaction varied from hilarity at Fergie’s screeching to jokes about how she was attempting to make Francis Scott Key into a composer of a song more appropriate for the bedroom to simple outrage that Fergie would dishonor the

Hillary Clinton´s campaign chairman John Podesta – whose emails were hacked and leaked during the 2016 campaign – called out President Trump Sunday for not doing more to punish the Russians for their interference or prep the nation for when the Kremlin tries to do it again. ´If this is information warfare, then I think he´s the first draft-dodger in the war,´ Podesta claimed of Trump on Face the Nation. Asked about Trump´s motivations, Podesta said that Trump´s psyche is ´complicated,´ but added that ´he certainly can´t accept that this activity may have helped him, and I think he just constantly tries

An activist group has launched a voter registration effort aimed at black voters at screenings of the “Black Panther” movie nationwide. Members of the Electoral Justice Project, an offshoot of the Movement for Black Lives, are seeking to motivate black voters and increase political engagement with the #WakandaTheVote campaign, the website Blavity reported. Wakanda is the fictional African nation featured in the long-anticipated Marvel film “Black Panther.” Kayla Reed, Jessica Byrd and Rukia Lumumba founded the Electoral Justice Project last year, and told Blavity that the movement has been effective “because we meet our communities where they are, whether that´s

Adam Rippon, in his own words, is “not a gay icon or America’s gay sweetheart.” No, “I am just America’s sweetheart. And I am just an icon.” (Snip) This will come as little surprise to those who have been following these Olympic Games. Even before the Games began, Rippon, one of the first openly gay male athletes to compete for the United States in an Olympics, was in the headlines over a feud with Vice President Mike Pence. Since, he’s become one of the most recognizable stars of these Olympics, a celebrated member of the gay community, as well as

Friday on MSNBC’s “All In,” Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said Russian interference with U.S. elections and political processes that resulted in 13 indictments against Russian nationals was “equivalent” to the attack on Pearl Harbor by Japanese in 1941. Partial transcript as follows: NADLER: My reaction to the news is this is absolute proof of what we knew all along and what the president has denied, namely that we were attacked. This is a very serious attack against the United States by a hostile foreign power, an attack against our election process, our entire governing process. We know that the attack

He has no idea how to make a majority of voters choose him. Mitt’s back. The former governor of Massachusetts and occasional native son of Michigan has a new persona: Mr. Utah. He’s going to bring Utah conservatism to the whole Republican party and to the country at large. Wholesome, efficient, industrious, faithful. “Utah has a lot to teach the politicians in Washington,” he says in announcing his Senate campaign. Maybe. There’s always been something unstable about Mitt Romney’s political identity.

The corner of Atlantic and Bedford Avenues in Crown Heights is Ground Zero of this middle-income neighborhood’s high anxiety. For the last two years, neighbors have complained to anyone who will listen that groups of men become an occupying force in the sidewalks around the huge 350-bed Atlantic Armory Men’s Shelter. On several recent mornings, the men were out en masse. Two Department of Homeless Services police officers leaned against the fence outside the 800-bed red-brick shelter. About 50 feet away a man nonchalantly urinated against the facility wall. Across Pacific St., men were sprawled on chairs and milk crates.
