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.

The rhetorical attacks on incoming National Security Council Executive Secretary Fred Fleitz (the author’s former colleague) have been shrill and ineffective. Conservatives have rallied to Fleitz’ defense, bolstered in part by Fleitz’s long history of work as a Central Intelligence Agency analyst, State Department official, and House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence staffer, along with his solid reputation working on Iran and nonproliferation-related issues. According to Trump administration insiders, the White House blames Obama allies and Iran deal advocates for ginning up the non-controversy, and there’s no indication of a willingness to surrender the scalp of a long-time national security

Peter Strzok, who was pulled off Special Counsel Robert Mueller´s investigative team last year, played a more central role than previously known in both the Russia and Hillary Clinton email probes, a lawmaker familiar with the matter told Fox News Tuesday. The lawmaker´s assessment of Strzok´s role in both investigations was based on the most recent records and testimony, including a closed-door interview with FBI espionage chief Bill Priestap. Priestap was interviewed Tuesday as part of an ongoing joint investigation by the House Judiciary and Oversight committees. Priestap was Strzok´s supervisor and oversaw both the Russia and Clinton investigations.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich on Sunday said the GOP needs to find a unifying message to tamp down the “chaotic environment” that seems to dominate political discourse today, citing a narrow victory for Republican Troy Balderson in a special congressional election that should have been a slam dunk for his party. Mr. Balderson appears to have squeaked out a win in Ohio’s 12th Congressional District, where Republicans previously won with “overwhelming numbers,” as the governor put it. That’s raising fears among Republicans about their prospects in swing districts this November. “What you had is a, I think, a message from

"The dirty war on the free press must end." That´s the idea behind an unusual editorial-writing initiative that has enlisted scores of newspapers across America. The Boston Globe has been contacting newspaper editorial boards and proposing a "coordinated response" to President Trump´s escalating "enemy of the people" rhetoric. "We propose to publish an editorial on August 16 on the dangers of the administration´s assault on the press and ask others to commit to publishing their own editorials on the same date," The Globe said in its pitch to fellow papers.

Tennessee has carried out its first execution in nearly a decade using a controversial cocktail of drugs including a lethal ingredient described by the Supreme Court as "chemically burning at the stake". Billy Ray Irick, an inmate convicted of the 1985 rape and murder of seven-year-old Paula Dyer, received a three-drug injection on Thursday night after the US Supreme Court denied a final request to stay his execution. The lethal injection consisted of midazolam, used as sedative during an execution, a muscle-relaxer called vecuronium bromide, and compounded potassium chloride, the agent that stops the heart.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said Sunday that it´s in President Trump´s best interest to let special counsel Robert Mueller complete his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Rubio, appearing on "Fox News Sunday," echoed a number of his Republican colleagues in defending the special counsel in the face of Trump´s call last week for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to end the Mueller investigation. Rubio said the "best thing that can happen" for Trump and the country is for the investigation to "run the course and for all the truth to come out."

In an op-ed for the Boston Globe, Dani Rodrik, professor of international political economy at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government, calls for what is effectively an academic blacklisting of members of the Trump administration, who, Rodrik contends, should be prohibited from receiving "even a semblance of honor or recognition" from the gatekeepers of higher learning. "Universities should uphold both free inquiry and the values of liberal democracy," writes Rodrik. "The first calls for unhindered exchange and interaction with Trumpist views. The second requires that the engagement be carefully calibrated, with not even a semblance of honor or recognition bestowed

A Gallup poll released Monday finds that – for the first time in the poll company’s data collection over the past decade – Democrats view socialism more positively than capitalism. The current survey demonstrates only 47 percent of Democrats view capitalism positively, a drop from 56 percent in 2016. Democrats’ view of socialism, however, has remained positive since 2010, with 57 percent having a positive perspective. Meanwhile, Republicans have remained positive about capitalism, with 71 percent taking that perspective and only 16 percent stating they have a positive view of socialism. The poll finds younger Americans have shown the greatest

Omarosa Manigault Newman made headlines on Monday morning following her contentious Today show interview, but it was her bright yellow dress that baffled style critics and left them wondering what she was thinking. The 44-year-old former assistant to the president looked ready for a cocktail reception in a $550 one-shoulder lace dress featuring a sweetheart neckline and scalloped hem when she sat down with Savannah Guthrie in Studio 1A. Omarosa was promoting her tell-all White House memoir, ´Unhinged,´ but her Karen Millen outfit choice prompted swift backlash from those who felt it was ´incredibly inappropriate´ for the morning show and

I hate to break it to parents who just sent their college-admission-minded progeny to the Tibetan Plateau to churn yak butter, but the smartest summer I ever spent was in secretarial school. This was back when I was 17, and it wasn’t grist for an essay about a transformative communion with people outside my clique. I wasn’t ripping the blinders from my eyes. I was typing — hour upon hour, day after day, with my shoulders back and my spine straight and my hands just so. My mother had decided that she could no longer bear the tortured stutter of my peck-peck-pecking

Last year, when the kneeling controversy erupted like a California wildfire and the president launched a series of attacks on the NFL and Colin Kaepernick, I argued that cooler heads should prevail and a middle ground could be reached by both sides. Like the recovering alcoholic I am, I must have been in denial, hoping like a chronic gambler that Roger Goodell would do the right thing, or even just do his job. Obviously, I was wrong, because here we are again, my friends: another year, another round of protests. And all because the NFL and Roger Goodell have been

Omarosa first spoke to Kelly when he was firing her, according to a tape of their conversation aired on “Meet the Press.” Watch this video, which has Kelly saying that he wanted the departure to be friendly, so there would be no

Open borders protesters and members of the left-wing anarchist group Antifa chanted death to America during a counter-protest in Washington, DC, on Sunday. In a video by Breitbart News’ Ian Mason, Antifa members and open borders activists can be heard and seen marching down streets throughout Washington, DC, demanding an end to the United States. “No border, no wall, no USA at all!” Antifa and open borders activists chanted. The mob of left-wing activists carried red flags and wore all black with masks and helmets on their heads as a counter-protest to the “Unite the Right 2” protest that took
