Q spoke of arrests and changes not just knowing for the sake of knowing. Much of what they dropped was already known here.
According to the newspaper report, the late financier secretly acquired the island after registering the company under the name of Dubai businessman Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem.
Sulayem, the chairman of port operator DP World, was allegedly unaware of the purchase.
The events known as the Dubai Ports World controversy sawDP World, the holding company owned by the United Arab Emirates, face backlash when their attempted ports takeover prompted an American national security debate in 2006. DP World hired Winer’s company to help them purchase Peninsular & Oriental Steam Navigation, which had the contract to operate some of America’s biggest ports.
The Bush administration initially approved the deal, which would have seen the Dubai-owned DP World lease the management of port operations in some of America’s busiest sea terminals, including in New York, Newark, Baltimore and Miami
Jonathon Winer at the time was a partner at the law firm of Alston & Bird, which was hired in 2005 by DP World to help it purchase P&O.
Jonathan Winer, a longtime associate of former Secretary of State John Kerry, set up a meeting in late 2014 with an executive at APCO Worldwide, an international consulting firm where Winer worked before and after his most recent stint at the State Department.
Winer also attempted to set up a meeting in November 2014 between Steele, a former MI6 officer, and executives at McLarty Associates, a consultancy founded by Bill Clinton’s first chief of staff, Mack McLarty.He also put Steele in contact with a former ambassador to Morocco and APCO partner related to a “Morocco immediate need.”
Emails obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation show that Glenn Simpson, an executive at Fusion GPS, contacted Jonathan Winer, who then served as State’s special envoy for Libya, on Sept. 19 and Sept. 22, 2016. That was days ahead of the publication of a Yahoo! News article that was the first story to cite information gathered by Christopher Steele, the former British spy who authored the dossier.
Late Wednesday, a whistleblower and former FBI informant connected to the Uranium One scandal revealed greater detail on the agreement that reportedly enriched the Clinton family and its foundation.
The informant, Douglas Campbell, explained that the Russians paid millions to APCO worldwide, a lobbying group, because it was in a “position to influence the Obama administration, and more specifically Hillary Clinton,” John Solomon of The Hill reported.
At the time, the senior vice president of APCO was Jonathan Winer. Once a registered foreign agent and before that a longtime Senate staffer under John Kerry, Winer has seamlessly moved his career back and forth between the foreign lobbying world and official government work
Multiple outlets have reported that Winer served as the bridge between dossier author Christopher Steele, two longtime Hillary Clinton operatives, and the Obama State Department.
Winer is very well connected to the major players who developed the Trump-Russia dossier.
APCO Worldwide is providing Washington media support for the prime and finance ministers of embattled Ukraine. Ukrainian officials meet in DC tomorrow with Internatonal Monetary Fund execs and bondholder committee members.
APCO is still discussing its terms of engagement with Ukraine's PM, but the firm will receive a fixed fee of $35K through next month.
Kissinger Associates, Inc. is a New York City-based "international consulting firm" owned and managed by Henry Kissinger. Their president is Jami Miscik.
In October 2004, Kissinger Associates and APCO Worldwide announced that they had formed "a strategic alliance". "Our grasp of core policy and regulatory issues in numerous countries combined with APCO's extensive public affairs experience will result in well-rounded thinking about our clients' challenges. I am confident that this kind of thinking will produce very exciting and productive results for the corporations we both serve," the media statement annoucning the alliance cited Kissinger stating
Richardson also joined Kissinger McLarty Associates, a "strategic advisory firm" headed by former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and former Clinton White House chief of staff Mack McLarty, as Senior Managing Director
An employee of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) was arrested today on charges related to his alleged disclosure of classified national defense information (NDI) to two journalists in 2018 and 2019.
“As laid out in today’s indictment, Frese was caught red-handed disclosing sensitive national security information for personal gain,” said Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C. Demers. “Frese betrayed the trust placed in him by the American people—a betrayal that risked harming the national security of this country. This is one of six unauthorized disclosure cases the Department has charged in just over two years, and we will continue in our efforts to punish and deter this behavior.”
“The dude [Trump] can’t spell. I’m not talking about big words like compulsory or obligatory but a single syllable word…moat. He spells it ‘moot’. But moot is already a ward. With a very different meaning. Can you see how something like this could crate a dangerous situation?” Barkin asked.
Frank Majoor, the North Atlantic Council’s permanent representative of the Netherlands, is a member of APCO’s International Advisory Council.
Larry Nichols is the consumate DC insider and operator. In fact, Bill Clinton in his biography described Nichols as a dangerous man. Clinton would know because Nichols spearheaded many of Clinton’s political black-bag Ops in Arkansas and Washington D.C for the Clinton cartel and beyond before he turned whistleblower.
Nichols revealed on his weekly news show on CrowdSource the Truth that federal agents have traced Congressman Schiff at Buck’s drug mansion over a dozen times. And now they want to know what Schiff was doing there.
“(Attorney General William) Barr is looking into why Adam Schiff was at Buck’s place 16 times,” said insider Larry Nichols. “The reason Barr is obligated to look into Adam Schiff, and the fact that he was there 16 times, is because as a member of Congress if he saw at his time at Buck’s any illegal activity, he is obligated by law to report it.
