I love it when one of my favorite Alt-Lefties drops by for an extended regurgitation of CNN/MSNBC-induced ignorance.

No the DNC didn't take over some democrat did supposedly but Steele said he continued without being paid because he felt our national security was at risk.
He brought this to the attention of the FBI and CIA not the democrats.
One lie fuels the fire.

You bought the new line.
Good I knew you would.

What's gonna be the excuse du jour tomorrow? Have you received the memo yet?
I called it that trump would try to deflect this story with some slanderous story about Hillary. Or blame Obama. Seems he chose the luxury plan and bought both.

No, Steele passed the discredited "dossier" to John McCain.

Too bad no one even knew about the meeting until two weeks ago.

Seems like every time they try to dig up dirt on the Trump administration, all we see is the shady sh** the Democrats were into. Seriously, the corruption and manipulation being uncovered, leads right back to the Obama administration or the Democrat party, with the usual suspects with their fingerprints all over it.

This is blowing up in their face.


One wonders if this is why so many people are out of the country of refusing to cooperate with investigations. Isn't Podesta the latest one to decide to take a vacation overseas?

A come on that's a lie and you know it. The NYT reporter knew for a whole year but strangely decided to wait to publish the story and Donald Junior stole his thunder.

Senate Judicial complaint names Rinat as working

Investiagation.

Sooner or later, Natalia, and Rinat are going to be exposed.

From Grassley Letter




It is particularly disturbing that Mr. Akhmetshin and Fusion GPS were working together on this pro-Russia lobbying effort in 2016 in light of Mr. Akhmetshin’s history and reputation. Mr. Akhmetshin is a Russian immigrant to the U.S. who has admitted having been a “Soviet counterintelligence officer.”[14]

In fact, it has been reported that he worked for the GRU and allegedly specializes in “active measures campaigns,” i.e., subversive political influence operations often involving disinformation and propaganda.[15] According to press accounts, Mr. Akhmetshin “is known in foreign policy circles as a key pro-Russian operator,”[16] and Radio Free Europe described him as a “Russian ‘gun-for-hire’ [who] lurks in the shadows of Washington’s lobbying world.”[17] He was even accused in a lawsuit of organizing a scheme to hack the computers of one his client’s adversaries.[18]

As you know, Fusion GPS is the company behind the creation of the unsubstantiated dossier alleging a conspiracy between President Trump and Russia. It is highly troubling that Fusion GPS appears to have been working with someone with ties to Russian intelligence –let alone someone alleged to have conducted political disinformation campaigns– as part of a pro-Russia lobbying effort while also simultaneously overseeing the creation of the Trump/Russia dossier. The relationship casts further doubt on an already highly dubious dossier.

The actions of Mr. Akhmetshin, Fusion GPS, and the others described in Mr. Browder’s complaint appear to show that they acted on behalf of a foreign principal. This is exactly the type of activity Congress intended to reach with FARA. When properly enforced, FARA provides important transparency.

However, in this case, because none of the parties involved in the anti-Magnitsky lobbying had properly registered under FARA, these suspicious connections were not appropriately documented and brought to public light. In fact, it is unclear whether the FBI was or is aware of Fusion GPS’s pro-Russia lobbying and connection to Mr. Akhmetshin, or that these efforts coincided with the creation of the dossier.

Presumably, such awareness would have informed the FBI’s evaluation of the dossier’s credibility. This is why it is important for the Department of Justice to actually enforce FARA’s disclosure requirements.

Rinat is also CEO of International Eurasian Institue for Economic
and Political Research, which is funded by George Soros.



According to court filings, Akhmetshin is a U.S. citizen, now living in Washington D.C. He founded and serves as the CEO of International Eurasia Institute for Economic and Political Research, which provides research on business disputes for Russian and Kazakhstan clients.
