Who colluded with Russia? Trump?
No. The Democrats colluded with Russian Agents in an attempt to manufacture their opponents destruction.
Although, this narrative created immense chaos and crippled the Trump Administrations ability to focus on policy, after years of pushing lies and digging for anything, these corrupt bureaucrats found absolutely nothing.
One question that I continue to wonder is if some of Hilary's contacts from the Uranium One Sale helped with the Steele Dossier?
Here's what we know so far...
Christopher Steele worked for Vladimir Putin-linked oligarch Oleg Deripaska. The investigation found “indications that Deripaska had early knowledge of Steele's work," and the report said Steele’s relationship with Deripaska “provided a potential direct channel for Russian influence on the dossier."
Fusion GPS worked for Kremlin-linked lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya of the now-infamous June 2016 Trump Tower meeting. The Clinton campaign hired Fusion.
Igor Danchenko, allegedly relied upon a network of Russian contacts The Senate Intelligence Committee’s report last year found “the Russian government coordinates with and directs Deripaska on many of his influence operations."
Veselnitskaya, a former prosecutor with ties to the Kremlin, hired BakerHostetler to help Cyprus-based, Russian-steered Prevezon Holdings in court, and the law firm hired Fusion in 2014.
Businessman Bill Browder had alleged Fusion acted as an agent for Russian interests when it helped go after him as Putin tried to combat the Magnitsky Act.
Browder, head of Hermitage Capital, championed the Magnitsky Act , named for his tax lawyer and corruption whistleblower Sergei Magnitsky, who died in a Russian prison in 2009 after his investigation allegedly uncovered hundreds of millions of dollars of tax fraud implicating Russian officials.
The Justice Department alleged Prevezon laundered fraudulent money, and the company later settled for $5.9 million in what the department called "a $230 million Russian tax refund fraud scheme involving corrupt Russian officials." Prevezon was owned by Denis Katsyv, whose father, Pyotr Katsyv, is a Putin ally.
The Senate Intelligence Committee report said the information Veselnitskaya offered during the Trump Tower meeting "was focused on U.S. sanctions against Russia under the Magnitsky Act" and "was part of a broader influence operation targeting the United States that was coordinated, at least in part, with elements of the Russian government."
The Senate report assessed Veselnitskaya and Rinat Akhmetshin, who accompanied her, both “have significant connections to the Russian government, including the Russian intelligence services,” and Veselnitskaya's connections "were far more extensive and concerning than what had been publicly known.”
Dolan was identified as “PR Executive-1” in Durham’s indictment against Danchenko. One alleged lie Danchenko told was denying he spoke with Dolan about anything in the dossier, despite an admittedly fabricated claim from Dolan about Manafort making it into the dossier via Danchenko.
Foreign Agents Registration Act filings from November 2011 and May 2012 show Dolan was paid $78,000 and $79,000 for “out-of-pocket expenses” while working on behalf of the Russian Federation and Russian state-owned energy giant, Gazprom.
Dolan “interacted with senior Russian Federation leadership whose names would later appear in" the dossier, and also “maintained relationships with" Russia's ambassador to the United States and the head of the Russian Embassy's Economic Section in Washington, D.C.
The media took their orders from their political handlers and they tried selling this lie to the public for over 4 years. In fact, there are still a few media personalities who are continuing with this lie. I am not sure if they just didn't get the memo? The memo indicating that their entire scheme fell apart and the world knows the truth...
If they never received that particular memo - their assistants should be fired. As a result, what is happening is more and more people are realizing just how deeply corrupted our media is, how deep their political affiliation goes, and what they will do to help out their party.
There are plenty of other examples but this right here adds to the sentiment; the media puts party over truth.
Well, what can you expect from state media propagandists?
