New Questions Raised About Trump Possibly Sharing Intel Info That Led To The Attack On Israel

A 2017 meeting failed former president Donald Trump held in the Oval Office with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Russia’s ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak, is once again in the spotlight as questions about how Israel could have been so unprepared for the Hamas terror attack are being raised, with some suggesting that intelligence data Trump shared with the two Russians may have found its way into the hands of Iran, which passed it along to Hamas to aid their planning of the deadly assault launched from the Gaza Strip.

Israel, we later learned, was the source of that intelligence, as NBC noted in May 2017:

The link to Israel was first reported by the New York Times a day after it was disclosed that Trump gave Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov intelligence about a laptop bomb threat and revealed the Syrian city where the information was collected.

And now Senior White House Communications Adviser Andrew Bates is hinting that Trump may have been partially responsible for the Hamas attack that has left over 1,000 Israelis dead.

According to Mediaite, Bates made the claim in response to a Twitter post from former Trump administration official Stephen Miller.

That response from Bates resulted in others suggesting that Trump may be partially to blame for Hamas’ attack.

The ex-president’s niece, Mary, pulled no punches.

Soon there was a deluge of discussion and accusation on Twitter.

It’s important to note that at the moment there is no direct evidence the information Trump shared with the two Russians was used to plan the Hamas attack on Israel, but shouldn’t there at least be congressional investigations into the matter? And if a link can be proven, what additional crimes should Donald Trump be charged with?


Crime Donald Trump Russia Social Media WTF?!

Trump Suggests He Might ‘Fly Far Away, Maybe To Russia’ To Avoid Criminal Trials

Clearly feeling the pressure of the four criminal trials he’s facing, disgraced one-term, twice-impeached, and multiply-indicted former president Donald Trump held a pity party for himself on social media and openly suggested that he might abscond to Russia in order to avoid having to serve a day in prison for his crimes.

On Monday, attorneys for the failed ex-president reached a deal with Fulton County, Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis to surrender in Atlanta on Thursday, Aug. 24 for arraignment, booking, and processing. After he posts a $200,00 bail, Trump will be allowed to return home.

However, shortly after news of the surrender deal was made, Trump posted this on his struggling Truth Social site:

The failed District Attorney of Fulton County (Atlanta), Fani Willis, insisted on a $200,000 Bond from me. I assume, therefore, that she thought I was a “flight” risk – I’d fly far away, maybe to Russia, Russia, Russia, share a gold domed suite with Vladimir, never to be seen or heard from again. Would I be able to take my very “understated” airplane with the gold TRUMP affixed for all to see. Probably not, I’d be much better off flying commercial – I’m sure nobody would recognize me!

Trump has already been warned in other jurisdictions that he should be careful about what he posts on social media, and yet he’s now suggesting he might want to flee to Russia, which doesn’t have an extradition treaty with the United States.

Even if Trump is just joking (is he?), any accused criminal defendant who made a similar posting would likely be in custody and held without bond until their trial. Yet Donnie continues to walk free.

Trump Gets Branded A ‘Useful American Idiot’ After Bragging He Was The ‘Apple’ Of Putin’s Eye

Failed former president Donald Trump is once again proving that he’ll never be anything more than a puppet for Russian president Vladimir Putin, bragging that he was the “apple” of Putin’s eye when he was still in the White House.

During an interview with Fox Business host Larry Kudlow, Trump remarked:

“Putin would have never gone into Ukraine, but that was just on my relationship with him. My personality over his. [He] would have never gone in. I used to speak to him. I was the apple of his eye, but I said ‘Don’t ever do it.’ It was tough stuff there, but he would have never done it.”

Trump’s comment was met with immediate criticism across the political spectrum, with some calling Trump a “useful American idiot” for Putin.

Did Trump’s Motive For Stealing Classified Documents Involve Russia?

As he continues to investigate the matter of classified documents former president Donald Trump illegally removed from the White House and took with him to Mar-a-Lago when he left office, Special Counsel Jack Smith is focusing in on Russia as the motive for why the failed ex-president took thousands of secret files and stored them at his Palm Beach golf resort.

In what may wind up being the greatest irony of all, according to Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Murray Waas, Special Counsel Smith and a grand jury he impaneled believe Trump’s obsession with Russia led him to steal the information.

As he left office, Waas has learned, Trump desperately tried to declassify thousands of pages of secret documents that detailed Russia’s efforts to help defeat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.

But Trump was stymied in his efforts to make the records public, leading the outgoing president to rage to aides that the documents would never see the light of day.

Now, sources close to Special Counsel Jack Smith’s investigation tell me that prosecutors have questioned at least three people about whether Trump’s frustrations may have been a motive in Trump taking thousands of pages of classified papers from the White House to Mar-A-Largo, in potential violation of federal law. One of those people was compelled to testify before a federal grand jury, the sources say.

The sources say that prosecutors appear to believe the episode may be central to determining Trump’s intent for his unauthorized removal from the White House of the papers.  Insight into the president’s frame of mind—his intent and motivation, are likely to be the foundational building blocks of any case that the special counsel considers seeking against Trump.

That has led Smith to take a close look at conversations between the White House counsel, the Justice Department, and then-White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows in the last frantic hours of the Trump administration.

The sources familiar with some aspects of the special counsel’s investigation further disclosed to me that prosecutors sought information regarding the following issues:   the witnesses were asked about any conversations they personally had with then-president Trump or any of their White House colleagues about the Russia papers; they were asked about conversations between senior Justice Department officials and attorneys with the White House counsel’s office, including two former senior lawyers in the office, John Eisenberg and Pat Philbin, regarding Trump’s presidential order to declassify the Russia papers; and they also were asked about the circumstances surrounding a memo written by Trump’s then Chief of Staff, Mark Meadows, the day following Trump’s declassification order, in which Meadows appeared to reverse course and related that the papers would not be released before the concerns of other agencies regarding the Privacy Act were fully assuaged.

“It was very clear from what they asked that their emphasis was on Trump and Meadows,” one person said.

Another former aide to Trump, Kash Patel, has publicly stated that he saw all of the records the disgraced ex-president wanted declassified, telling Breitbart:

 “It’s information that Trump felt spoke to matters regarding everything from Russiagate to the Ukraine impeachment fiasco to major national security matters of great public importance—anything the president felt [the public] had a right to know is in there and more.”

So it was Russia that allegedly helped elect Trump, Russia that led to his impeachment, and Russia that may wind up sending him to prison for the rest of his life if Smith’s investigation proves Russiagate was what Trump clung to even after he left the White House.

Right about now, Donald Trump is probably wishing he had never heard of Russia or his BFF, Vladimir Putin.


Fox News Joe Biden Russia

Maria Bartiromo Is Furious Because The Media Is Covering Russia Instead Of Hunter Biden 

Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo is absolutely apoplectic because somehow the Biden administration managed to get the news media to talk about the insurrection in Russia this weekend instead of Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden.

Speaking with the hosts of “Fox & Friends” on Sunday morning, Bartiromo was asked if the story about Biden’s taxes would be able to “break through” in the media, to which she replied, “Well, the White House wanted to give the media something else to cover, and this is the MO.”

“This is exactly the way they do things,” Bartiromo continued. “In fact, on Friday, I said, wow, what a blockbuster; what’s that message? I’m sure there will be an enormous story over the weekend that the White House is going to be pushing to take this story off of the front page, and sure enough, we’ve got the State Department drumming up all the drama that took place over the weekend in Russia.”

She added, “The mainstream media has an excuse again not to cover it. They’re covering everything about Russia and the Wagner Group. As if it really matters to the U.S. right now.”

The media isn’t supposed to report when the government of a country with an arsenal of nuclear weapons is potentially on the verge of collapse? How irresponsible of them. After all, Hunter Biden is the story! This must be a massive conspiracy to protect the Biden family.

It’s a miracle Bartiromo is still at Fox. She was one of the most vociferous disseminators of lies and conspiracy theories in the months after the 2020 election that wound up costing her employer $787.5 million.

So if you’re wondering why everything was so tense in Russia this weekend, you can blame the Bidens. Seems they’re responsible for everything in the mind of the right-wing, tinfoil hat wearing fools over at Fox.
