Undone by a Kid…And the Russians

December 31, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Uncategorized

Yesterday, the New York Times published a blockbuster article that fingered the guy who triggered the Russia-Trump investigation.  That guy?  He’s George Papadopoulos, a then 28 year old kid who was “advising” the Trump campaign on energy and international issues.  As early as April of 2016, Papadopoulos was aware that the Russians had hacked into Hillary’s and the DNC’s emails due to his contacts with Russian operatives.  In May of that year, during a drinking session with an Australian diplomat, Papadopoulos bragged that the Russians had dirt on Hillary.  Two months later, Australian intelligence alerted US intelligence of the hacking.

This chain of events is what kicked off the FBI investigation of the Trump campaign and its contacts with Russian operative.  Papadopoulos, who planned to ride Mike Flynn’s coattails into the NSA, ended up riding his coattails into a guilty plea of lying to the FBI.  He’s now, along with Flynn, fully cooperating with the investigation.

Tick, Tick, Tick

Trump Blaming Obama for His Own Incompetence

April 29, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Trump

Remember when President Obama fired Mike Flynn from the DIA in 2014?  Well.  In an attempt to cover for his own incompetence, Trump is now blaming Obama for Flynn, even though Obama fired him and Trump rehired him despite knowing he was taking money from foreign governments.  In leaked emails from Colin Powell, he described Flynn as a “right wing nutty” and “abusive with staff, didn’t listen, worked against policy…”

Flynn was so bad that apparently he was perfect for Trump, but his history as a foreign agent finally was too serious for even him to ignore.  In Trumpworld, where Cheeto Jesus makes no mistakes, Flynn is now all Obama’s fault.

As JJ has already reported, attorney for former Trump advisor, Mike Flynn, is trying to trade his testimony for immunity.  As a reminder where this guy came from, I’ll just leave this right here:

Karma is a B*tch (Sorry Momma).

Important or Shiny Object?

The Republicans have a brilliant plan.  They do something dirty nasty horrible to try to kill democracy and then they wave bright shiny things in my face to keep me from remembering the dirty nasty horrible thing to destroy democracy that they did in the first place.

I am easily distracted by shiny crap. I know that because I can go driving around looking at Christmas lights and never really remember any of them individually because I’m distracted by the house across the street before I commit any of them to memory.

So ….

I am wondering, is this Important or is it Shiny Crap? Michael Flynn palling-around with the Russians.

Reuters reported last month, citing three sources familiar with the matter, that Flynn had held five phone calls with Kislyak on Dec. 29, the day then-President Barack Obama retaliated for Moscow’s alleged interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

The Post said Flynn on Wednesday denied that he had discussed sanctions with the Russian ambassador, but on Thursday backed away from the denial through a spokesman.

You know, that would be kinda bad, especially since President Obama fired Flynn for being a hysterical, Chicken Little whiny butt jackass.  Did Flynn call Russia and say, “Don’t worry about the black guy because we can fix this?”

It sounds like a really big deal but only because I think it may be a trinket on the Christmas tree of Russian interference in our election.

Thanks to everybody for the heads up.
