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

Fox News, by Ed Henry

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/8/2018 7:27:51 PM

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.

Secret FBI source for Russia investigation met
with three Trump advisers during campaign
Washington Post, by Robert Costa*    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 5/18/2018 10:15:04     Post Reply
In mid-July 2016, a retired American professor approached an adviser to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign at a symposium about the White House race held at a British university. The professor took the opportunity to strike up a conversation with Carter Page, whom Trump had named a few months earlier as a foreign policy adviser. But the professor was more than an academic interested in American politics — he was a longtime U.S. intelligence source. And, at some point in 2016, he began working as a secret informant for the FBI as it investigated Russia’s interference in the campaign, according to people familiar

U.S. law enforcement and intelligence officials have leaked extremely sensitive information about a top secret source three times in the last week while claiming that confidentially sharing information about the source with congressional investigators could greatly impact U.S. national security and potentially risk the source’s life. The officials have leaked specific information that could directly identify the source on three separate occasions to reporters at the Washington Post and New York Times. This raises even more questions about whether current top intelligence and law enforcement officials can be trusted to obey the law and to

Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) warned Republican lawmakers on Friday not to expose the identity of top-secret FBI informant, saying that to do so would be "irresponsible" — and potentially illegal. "It would be at best irresponsible, and at worst potentially illegal, for members of Congress to use their positions to learn the identity of an FBI source for the purpose of undermining the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in our election," Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said in a statement.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes appeared on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday, where he provided a potentially explosive hint at what’s driving his demand to see documents related to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Trump-Russia probe. “If the campaign was somehow set up,” he told the hosts, “I think that would be a problem.” Or an understatement. Mr. Nunes is still getting stiff-armed by the Justice Department over his subpoena, but this week his efforts did force the stunning admission that the FBI had indeed spied on the Trump campaign.

Spinning a Crossfire Hurricane: The

If you’re a fading Baby Boomer, you’re faintly amused that the FBI code-named its Trump-Russia investigation “Crossfire Hurricane.” It’s an homage to the Rolling Stones golden oldie “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” — which, come to think of it, might just be a perfect handle for John Brennan, the former Obama CIA director whose specter hovers over each critical juncture of the case. The young’uns may not believe it, but back before it was known as “classic rock,” you couldn’t just play your crossfire hurricane on Spotify. You had to spin it. Fittingly, that is exactly what the New York Times has

Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s lawyer, says that special counsel Robert Mueller has agreed to avoid a “fishing” expedition by narrowing the subject of questions in an effort to get the president to submit to an interview with the prosecutor. Mr. Giuliani also says he thinks fired FBI Director James Comey is “not going to be worth anything as a witness” and thus less a threat to the president. Mr. Giuliani told The Washington Times that Mr. Mueller’s team displayed a “first good faith effort” during a Wednesday meeting that might result in an interview in July and a final Mueller report by

This past weekend we reported that Internet sleuths determined who the Obama FBI spy was in the Trump campaign. Now we know he was a classmate of Bill Clinton’s and an advisor to the Clinton Administration! Jeff Carlson at theMarketswork on last Thursday identified an individual by the name of Stefan Halper 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). Carlson determined that George Papadopoulos, the lower level campaign worker for the Trump campaign, appears to have been targeted by three individuals

Last week, several news outlets obtained financial records showing that Michael Cohen, President Trump’s personal attorney, had used a shell company to receive payments from various firms with business before the Trump Administration. In the days since, there has been much speculation about who leaked the confidential documents, and the Treasury Department’s inspector general has launched a probe to find the source. That source, a law-enforcement official, is speaking publicly for the first time, to The New Yorker, to explain the motivation: the official had grown alarmed after being unable to find two important reports on Cohen’s financial activity in

The civil war between the Fox News Channel news and opinion sides appears to be hardening with chief political anchor Bret Baier having joined the fray. On Thursday May 17, Baier, a 20-year high-profile veteran of Fox News, entered the lion’s den – one of the hearts of the anti-Trump Resistance – when he went on the ABC Television Network daytime women’s chat show The View. His guest shot in “enemy territory” was a prominent stop on the media tour to promote his new book on Reagan and Gorbachev, Three Days in Moscow. The five women of The View, however – four of them unabashed leftists and one lone

Donald Trump has stayed uncharacteristically quiet on Twitter without posting a single tweet about the royal wedding. The President, who is usually especially active on the social media network early in the day, did not tweet anything all morning about the nuptials between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, which ended at 9.00am ET. Rumors swirled about whether Trump would be invited to the wedding at Windsor Castle in Berkshire, but he was eventually left off the guest list, along with other political leaders. Prominent figures who made the cut included Oprah Winfrey, George and Amal Clooney and the Beckhams. Other A-listers including Idris

The man who is sixth in line to be king of Great Britain is getting married today and America has lost its mind. What does it mean to be sixth in the line of royal succession to an office that depends solely and exclusively on who your father is? It means that five family members have to die before you get the real goodies. Granted, those goodies are amazing. Who wouldn´t want to live in a thousand year old castle (too bad it´s in Scotland) or have dozens of "servants" cater to your every whim and need? But that lifestyle depends on people believing that you are deserving of such wealth and privilege because you happened to be

Boston — Black students at Harvard University are organizing a graduation ceremony of their own this year to recognize the achievements of black students and faculty members some say have been overlooked. More than 700 students and guests are registered to attend Harvard´s first Black Commencement, which will take place two days before the school´s traditional graduation events. (Snip) Every student will receive a stole made of traditional African kente cloth, meant to symbolize their shared heritage and to be worn with their cap and gown at the university´s graduation. Students have raised $35,000 for the event, mostly from schools within the university.

John McCain always said he’d go down fighting, and so he has, dickering from his deathbed over CIA nominee Gina Haspel and pre-emptively disinviting President Donald Trump from his funeral, then leaving as a legacy some fierce final words for the leader of his party, who is now a political enemy. All Trump displays is “a reality-show facsimile of toughness,” the six-term Arizona senator and former GOP presidential candidate, who for a generation of Washington politicians has defined genuine toughness, writes in his forthcoming memoir. The irony of McCain’s curtain-closing contretemps with the president is that it is clearly

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton acknowledged Friday that Democratic candidates around the country still face basic questions about what they stand for and which policies their party supports. Speaking at a Democrat Women’s Leadership Forum in Washington, D.C., Clinton urged party leaders to return to the basics and lay out the party’s values for voters. Fair wages, the “absolute promise of universal health care,” public school funding, gun safety reform and equal pay were at the top of the former first lady’s agenda items that she thought should stay central to the Democratic Party’s platform.

WASHINGTON — President Trump accused the F.B.I. on Friday, without evidence, of sending a spy to secretly infiltrate his 2016 campaign “for political purposes” even before the bureau had any inkling of the “phony Russia hoax.” In fact, F.B.I. agents sent an informant to talk to two campaign advisers only after they received evidence that the pair had suspicious contacts linked to Russia during the campaign. The informant, an American academic who teaches in Britain, made contact late that summer with one campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos, according to people familiar with the matter. He also met repeatedly in the

Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) warned Republican lawmakers on Friday not to expose the identity of top-secret FBI informant, saying that to do so would be "irresponsible" — and potentially illegal. "It would be at best irresponsible, and at worst potentially illegal, for members of Congress to use their positions to learn the identity of an FBI source for the purpose of undermining the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in our election," Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said in a statement. "Anyone who is entrusted with our nation’s highest secrets should act with the gravity and

Former President Jimmy Carter jabbed President Trump during his commencement speech at Liberty University in Virginia on Saturday, joking about the crowd size at the event. Carter pointed out that the crowd size at the commencement was bigger this year than when Trump spoke to Liberty graduates in 2017, the Associated Press reported. “I don’t know if President Trump would admit that," Carter said, referring to the Trump’s claim, which was widely determined to be false, that his inauguration crowd exceeded 1 million people. Carter wasn´t the only one to bring up the Trump inauguration crowd size Saturday. The Twitter

Windsor, England - Prince Charles will walk Meghan Markle down the aisle at the royal wedding — stepping in after the father of the bride fell ill just days before the ceremony. Kensington Palace said Friday that Markle´s future father-in-law, the heir to the British throne, would walk the American actress down the aisle at St. George´s Chapel in Windsor for her wedding to Prince Harry. The palace says he "is pleased to be able to welcome Ms. Markle to the Royal Family in this way." (Tweet) The decision comes after feverish speculation about who would have the honor after the bride announced that her father,
