Ted Kennedy asked Russians for election help, Bill Clinton mixed in the Russian election

If the progressives want to know what actual treason looks like, they should consult liberal lion Ted Kennedy, who not only allegedly sent secret messages to the Soviets in the midst of the cold war, he also begged them to intervene in a U.S. presidential election in order to unseat President Ronald Reagan. They also should ask why Putin wants to get even for interfering in the Russian election.

That’s no exaggeration.According to Soviet documents unearthed in the early 1990’s, Kennedy literally asked the Soviets, avowed enemies of the U.S., to intervene on behalf of the Democratic party in the 1984 elections. Kennedy’s communist communique was so secret that it was not discovered until 1991, eight years after Kennedy had initiated his Soviet gambit:

Picking his way through the Soviet archives that Boris Yeltsin had just thrown open, in 1991 Tim Sebastian, a reporter for the London Times, came across an arresting memorandum. Composed in 1983 by Victor Chebrikov, the top man at the KGB, the memorandum was addressed to Yuri Andropov, the top man in the entire USSR. The subject: Sen. Edward Kennedy.

Kennedy would make certain the networks gave Andropov air time–and that they rigged the arrangement to look like honest journalism.

Not enough of the Russians?

In 1996 US govt interfered in Russia’s election so blatantly it was boasted of on the cover of Time magazine. . 

Earlier I posted Bill Clinton meddled in Russian Election.

President Bill Clinton meddled in Russian affairs in the 1990s and helped Boris Yeltsin get elected to a second term, political analyst Dick Morris told Newsmax TV.

“I think that Putin resented that, hated it, thought that it was an inappropriate intervention by Bill Clinton and I think he’s determined to take his revenge out on Hillary Clinton.” Quote from Dick Morris.

Mark Steyn at his very best. He gives us his take on the infamous Rob Goldstone, who was the go between for Donald Trump Jr. and the Russian Lawyer. He appeared on the Tucker Carlson program last night. What else is there for me to say! Hilarious. Enjoy.

Epic Battle – Marie Bartiromo vs John Podesta over his Russia links

Here is a smack down that one doesn’t get to witness very often. Marie sank her teeth into Podesta and like a good bull-dog, didn’t let up. Finally someone looks at the Clinton crime cabal. Example:

“You joined the board of a small energy company in 2011,” Bartiromo said. “Two months later a Russian entity directly funded by the Kremlin invested $35 million in the company. You were given 75,000 shares in a Russian company which you failed to disclose when you became an Obama associate.”

“Maria, that is not true. I fully disclosed and I was completely compliant,” Podesta responded.

“You are picking through my emails that were stolen from the Russians and released by WikiLeaks and creating a story that is not true,” he added.

Bartiromo continued to say he had shares in a “Russian company.”

“Go back and get your facts straight, Maria,” Podesta said.

“That’s not true, John. We know you owned 75,000 shares,” Bartiromo responded.

John Podesta, the chairman for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, was a target of WikiLeaks during the election, but Wednesday he battled with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo over his own links to Russia.

Podesta blamed the Russians when his hacked emails were published by WikiLeaks during the 2016 campaign, asserting that Moscow was working to elect now-President Donald Trump. The U.S. intelligence community has said the hack was part of a broader Russian effort to interfere in the election.

But the longtime Clinton ally, who met with the House Intelligence Committee behind closed doors on Tuesday to discuss Russian meddling, has also faced allegations that he owned shares in a Kremlin-backed energy company, Joule Unlimited.

Bartiromo pushed Podesta on his association with the company, which she said was “widely reported” to be Kremlin-backed. Podesta served on the company’s board for multiple years starting in 2011. Read More:Free Beacon

Comey had ‘false and dangerous view’ of FBI role

 

Whatever parts of Comey’s testimony you believe were the high points, what did become crystal clear was his dangerous view of the Department as this totally independent agency accountable to no one. We found what could happen with this view in one J. Edgar Hoover. I caught the WSJ piece before it went behind the pay wall and was a well written piece. The testimony bore out yesterday the concerns expressed. The Examiner picks up the thread here:

The right-leaning Wall Street Journal editorial board hit former FBI Director James Comey for having a “false and dangerous view” of how the agency is expected to function in a democracy.

In an editorial published Wednesday night, just hours ahead of Comey’s highly anticipated testimony before Congress, the Journal said that his testimony, released earlier in the day, suggests he believes the FBI should act as an unchecked authority in law enforcement, and that Comey didn’t seem interested in discussing any of the issues before him with any elected or appointed officials.

“The most troubling part of Mr. Comey’s statement is his belief in what he calls ‘the FBI’s traditionally independent status in the executive branch,’ which he invokes more than once,” the paper said. “Independent? This is a false and dangerous view of law enforcement in the American system. Mr. Comey is describing a FBI director who essentially answers to no one. But the police powers of the government are awesome and often abused, and the only way to prevent or correct abuses is to report to elected officials who are accountable to voters.” More at Washington Examiner

FBI Comey pushed back probe origins of ‘Salacious material’ requested by Trump

Interesting isn’t it that the Comey prepared remarks distributed yesterday included statements on the sex act nonsense against Trump. All of which would easily explain why Trump met privately with him at the least. If I were Trump, I would be furious as well as to why Comey didn’t want to go after the origins. Add to his angst that McCain confirms he handed over Trump documents to FBI | 12NEWS … Here goes:

Former FBI Director James B. Comey admitted that he pushed back against a request from President Donald Trump to possibly investigate the origins of “salacious material” that the agency possessed in the course of its investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign.

The detail was included in Comey’s prepared remarks set to be delivered Thursday to the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and released ahead of Comey’s appearance.

 

In Comey’s prepared remarks, the former FBI chief says that following a January 6 Oval Office meeting with Intelligence Community leaders, Comey “remained alone with the President Elect to brief him on some personally sensitive aspects of the information assembled during the assessment.”’

It is clear Comey was referring to the dossier since he writes the “salacious and unverified” material was about to be publically reported by the news media.

He writes:

The IC leadership thought it important, for a variety of reasons, to alert the incoming President to the existence of this material, even though it was salacious and unverified. Among those reasons were: (1) we knew the media was about to publicly report the material and we believed the IC should not keep knowledge of the material and its imminent release from the President-Elect; and (2) to the extent there was some effort to compromise an incoming President, we could blunt any such effort with a defensive briefing.

Four days later, the dossier was published by BuzzFeed. 

Also, in his statement summarizing his conversation with Trump, Comey refers to Russian prostitutes, a key component of the dossier:

He said he had nothing to do with Russia, had not been involved with hookers in Russia, and had always assumed he was being recorded when in Russia. 

The document contains wild and unproven claims that the Russians had information on Trump and sordid sexual acts, including the mocked claim that Trump hired prostitutes and had them urinate on a hotel room bed.

Comey writes:

During the dinner, the President returned to the salacious material I had briefed him about on January 6, and, as he had done previously, expressed his disgust for the allegations and strongly denied them. He said he was considering ordering me to investigate the alleged incident to prove it didn’t happen. I replied that he should give that careful thought because it might create a narrative that we were investigating him personally, which we weren’t, and because it was very difficult to prove a negative. He said he would think about it and asked me to think about it.

In testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on FBI oversight last month, Comey repeatedly refused to answer questions about his agency’s ties to the dossier.
