In an exclusive published in The Guardian that discredits even further President Trump’s unfounded accusations that President Obama wiretapped him there’s a bomb of its own at the very end, with a source claiming that the official investigation now has specific concrete and corroborative evidence of collusion.
One source suggested the official investigation was making progress. “They now have specific concrete and corroborative evidence of collusion,” the source said. “This is between people in the Trump campaign and agents of Russian influence relating to the use of hacked material.”
This will be the turning point in the Trump Russia scandal. This is the smoking gun, the impeachable offense.
The article notes that at least seven countries tried to alert the United States about the Trump campaign conversations with Russia, which the GCHQ first became aware of in 2015.
Basically the entire Western SIGINT alliance knew there was something rotten between Trump and Russia.
“It looks like the [US] agencies were asleep,” the source added. “They [the European agencies] were saying: ‘There are contacts going on between people close to Mr Trump and people we believe are Russian intelligence agents. You should be wary of this.’
“The message was: ‘Watch out. There’s something not right here.'”
Malcome Nance pointed out that no matter how troubling the alerts were, “The FBI is the only agency that can touch those foreign intell reports. Until a FISA is obtained allied collection on US citizens is off limits.”
We now know that there was a FISA warrant on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. This warrant was renewed more than once. They got the FISA warrant because there was probable cause that the target was a foreign agent, and that he knew he was working with Russian agents.
The Gang of 8 were told in August and September that Putin might be trying to help Trump win the election.
Team Trump keeps crying persecution, but there is evidence that they were in constant dialogue with Russia and that Russia wanted Trump to win. The smoking gun is proof of collusion. That’s what the hold up has been.
The Guardian’s source says they have specific concrete and corroborative evidence of collusion between Trump and Russia relating to hacked material. This claim echoes the spy chatter that’s been going on for months now, and also echoes the partially corroborated dossier by the British spy. That dossier has only been corroborated in parts, but many of those parts went to the more important claims rather than the salacious claims that made headlines.
This is only one step in a long investigation, but it is a big deal. Except to O’Reilly, who has dismissed the whole story and refused to report on it, because it involves his friend Trump. Now imagine what O’Reilly would be saying if all this came out about a Democrat, especially Hillary Clinton. They wanted her put in jail over some harmless e-mails, if she had won and was linked to Russia they would want her burned at the cross, but when it’s Trump O’Reilly will not even report on any of it
