Author Of The Steele Dossier Says The Pee Tape ‘Probably Does Exist’

Former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele — who provided information for the “Steele Dossier” — has finally decided to speak out and explain why he compiled the document and whether he believes the contents of the report are true.

In an interview with George Stephanopoulos of ABC News, Steele admitted that parts of the dossier cannot be cannot be proven beyond a reasonable doubt, but the former MI6 agent says one of the most salacious details is indeed factual: The infamous “pee tape” of Donald Trump with two Russian prostitutes who urinated on a bed that had once been used for former President Barack Obama.

That led Stephanopoulos to inquire:

“So how do you explain if that tape does indeed exist, why hasn’t it been released?”

Steele:

“Well it hasn’t needed to be released?”

Stephanopoulos:

“Why not?”

Steele responded:

“Because I think the Russians felt they got pretty good value out of Donald Trump when he was president of the U.S.”

Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, said in his book, Disloyal, that he looked but never located the tape in Russia:

“But I do know that the decision to go to The Act in Vegas in 2012 was made by the Agalarovs and the Russian men certainly seemed hugely entertained in a venue that boasted golden showers and fairly bristled with the energy of sex for sale. They were the same men who hosted Trump in Moscow in 2013, so it doesn’t seem entirely impossible that the amusements of a golden shower were again part of the Boss’s festivities.”

The failed, one-term former president has repeatedly denied he ever engaged in such a scene with prostitutes while he was in Moscow, even referencing it recently:

In a private speech at [a Republican donor] retreat Thursday, Trump cast himself as the GOP’s savior, saying he had brought the party back from the brink of disaster and helped Republicans hold seats on Capitol Hill—failing to mention that the party lost the White House and control of both the House and Senate under his presidency. “It was a dying party, I’ll be honest. Now we have a very lively party,” he said, to a room of senators, donors and lobbyists, according to a recording of the event obtained by The Washington Post, before boasting of all the endorsements and telephone town halls he had done in the 2020 cycle.

In Trump’s address, one of the final events of the retreat, the former president focused on re-litigating grievances he has retained since leaving office…. Unprompted, he brought up an unsubstantiated claim he had interactions with prostitutes in Moscow before he ran for president. “I’m not into golden showers,” he told the crowd. “You know the great thing, our great first lady—‘That one,’ she said, ‘I don’t believe that one.’”

To paraphrase the Bard of Avon, The tangerine-tinted buffoon doth protest too much.

Former National Security Official: Putin Used Women To Manipulate Trump

For years, many have wondered exactly why failed, one-term former President Donald Trump was so deferential and complimentary of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Did Putin have kompromat — i.e. compromising information — on Trump, or was the Donald somehow beholden to the Russian thug/leader for other reasons?

According to former National Security Council official Fiona Hill, who specialized in Russia and Europe and served in the Trump administration, Putin used beautiful women to distract and manipulate the ex-president.

Speaking to Molly Jong-Fast of The Daily Beast for the “New Normal” podcast, Hill noted that Putin’s efforts were taken directly from the KBG playbook he had used for decades.

Hill said Trump admired Putin as being tough and devious:

“He saw Putin as the kind of epitome of the badass populist, frankly, you know, the kind of person that he wanted to be: super-rich, super powerful, no checks and balances, and essentially being able to stay in power forever.”

And when Putin would meet with Trump, he used women to distract the U.S. president and make him pliable for whatever suggestions or policies the Russian autocrat had in mind:

“Putin made a big point, a big show of introducing Trump to the interpreter. Here’s a really pretty woman. She’s also a brilliant interpreter, but it was clearly meant to get Trump to look at her and not to be paying attention to what Putin was saying.”

Hill’s remarks match up with those made by former White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham, who writes in her new book, I’ll Take Your Questions Now about the beautiful interpreter:

“As the meeting began, Fiona Hill leaned over and asked me if I had noticed Putin’s translator, who was a very attractive brunette woman with long hair, a pretty face, and a wonderful figure,” Ms Grisham writes.

“She proceeded to tell me that she suspected the woman had been selected by Putin specifically to distract our President.”

While Ms Boyarskaya looked prim and proper in a demure dress during the meeting, glamour shots obtained by East2West News show her posing in a tight leather one-piece number with thigh-high boots, among other outfits.

Donald Trump is a serious threat to U.S. national security. If he happens to win a second term in 2024, this country will likely become nothing more than a Russian satellite under the complete control of the Kremlin.

Congress GOP Whining Russia WTF?!

Devin Nunes Sues MSNBC Because Rachel Maddow Exposed His Ties To Russia

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) — who is fresh off losing a lawsuit he filed against CNN — is now suing the parent company of MSNBC, NBCUniversal Media, for defamation because MSNBC host Rachel Maddow dared to reveal his many connections to Russia and Russian operatives who tried to influence the 2016 presidential election.

According to Bloomberg:

“California Republican Congressman Devin Nunes sued NBCUniversal Media alleging that MSNBC’s liberal talk show host Rachel Maddow defamed him with on-air suggestions he’d conspired with a Russian agent to rig the 2016 presidential election for Donald Trump.

“Nunes, who is the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, says Maddow has repeatedly targeted him with defamatory statements that accuse him of obstruction of justice and treason. Nunes said Maddow has also called for him to lose his committee post and be stripped of his security clearances.”

What exactly did Maddow say that Nunes is claiming was defamatory? Well, she let the world know about his many ties to Russia and Russian nationals who played a part in running a smear campaign against Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election to benefit Donald Trump, who was favored by the Kremlin.

Here’s what Maddow reported on March 8, 2021:

“Last summer, the Senate Intelligence Committee in the house learned that same guy, Derkach, had mailed a stack of unknown materials to Devin Nunes, who is the top Republican on the Intelligence Committee to this day. Andrei Derkach singled out by name by the Director of National Intelligence as someone under Vladimir Putin‘s direct purview who helped run this organization targeting our election last year. Congressman Nunes accepted a package from him. What was in it? Congressman Nunes has refused to answer questions about what he has received from Andrei Derkach.”

The problem for Nunes is that every single word of what Maddow said is true and easily fact-checked against declassified congressional and intelligence reports on the 2016 election.

So why is Nunes suing? He claims that Maddow and MSNBC never contacted him for comment and therefore he wasn’t allowed to present his side of the story. However, given the fact that Nunes constantly lies, his accusation is almost certainly false.

Also, a journalist as precise and seasoned as Maddow would never air a story without reaching out for comment from Nunes or an official representative who could speak on behalf of the congressman.

The highly litigious California Republican will lose the suit against NBCUniversal, the same way he’s lost all of the other defamation suits he’s filed against media companies — including Twitter — which dared to allow accounts that were critical of Nunes to remain on their platform.

Devin Nunes is a Russian asset. All the lawsuits in the world won’t change that fact.

Fox News Host Says Russia Now Has A Jet Than Can Fly At ‘Twice The Speed Of Light’

During Wednesday morning’s edition of “Fox & Friends,” host Jillian Mele reported that Russia now has a fighter jet that can fly at “nearly twice the speed of light.”

According to Mele:

“The jet features stealth characteristics and the ability to cruise at supersonic speeds. The new aircraft is smaller than other Russian fighter jets but can fly at a speed of almost twice the speed of light.

“The new design can also be converted into an unpiloted version.”

Co-host Steve Doocy then chimed in:

“Unpiloted. so you would control it by a computer or a person running it just like a video game.”

Mele:

“That boggles my mind.”

It boggles her mind? That would require that she actually have a mind instead of just being a paid news reader who reiterates whatever’s on the teleprompter.

As Albert Einstein explained with his theory of relativity, nothing can travel at a speed that’s faster than the speed of light.

Space.com explains Einstein’s thinking on the subject of traveling faster than light:

“Even using the most precise measurements possible, the speed of light remains the same for an observer standing still on the face of the Earth as it does for one traveling in a supersonic jet above its surface. Similarly, even though Earth is orbiting the sun, which is itself moving around the Milky Way, which is a galaxy traveling through space, the measured speed of light coming from our sun would be the same whether one stood inside or outside of the galaxy to calculate it. Einstein calculated that the speed of light doesn’t vary with time or place.”

Even worse for Mele is that Fox itself totally disproves what she said, with their website reporting:

“The prospective warplane, marketed under the project name Checkmate, has one engine and is designed to be smaller and cheaper than Russia’s latest Su-57 two-engine stealth fighter, also built by Sukhoi. It can fly at a speed of 1.8-2 times the speed of sound, has a range of 3,000 kilometers (1,864 miles) and a payload of 7,400 kilograms (16,300 pounds), the jet’s makers said.”

Later today, perhaps Jillian Mele will tell us that gravity isn’t real and Sir Isaac Newton was wrong.

Court Filings Suggest Giuliani And His ‘Associates’ Are In Bed With The Russian Mafia

When his attorney made a court filing ago to convince a judge that Rudy Giuliani’s electronic devices contain confidential information such as discussions with clients, the documents that wound up in the public record shed new light on the full scale of unsavory characters Rudy has been rubbing elbows with and also point to a larger conspiracy which involves the Russian mafia.

Giuliani’s attorney, Robert J. Costello, notes that the former New York City mayor should never have been raided by the FBI late last month, the New York Times reports:

“In a 17-page letter to the judge who authorized the searches, Mr. Giuliani’s lawyers argued that it would have been more appropriate — and less invasive — for the U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan to seek information through a subpoena, which, unlike a warrant, would have given him an opportunity to review the documents and respond.

“The defense lawyers wrote that prosecutors ‘simply chose to treat a distinguished lawyer as if he was the head of a drug cartel or a terrorist, in order to create maximum prejudicial coverage of both Giuliani and his most well-known client — the former president of the United States.'”

Though Rudy may not be the head of a drug cartel, it seems he travels in the same circles and does business with members of organized criminal organizations that do indeed traffic in narcotics, engage in sexual trafficking of young girls, and have people killed for daring to report on their illegal activities.

At one point in the court documents that became public, there’s a tantalizing tidbit that refers to Dmitro Firtash, a Ukrainian businessman with extensive ties to Russian organized crime, legal analyst Marcy Wheeler pointed out on Twitter. It also mentions possible associates of Giuliani who worked in the United States as unregistered foreign agents of Firtash:

Firtash, it should be added, gave a $1 million loan to Lev Parnas, who was working for Giuliani at the time in an attempt to dig up dirt on the Biden family:

“A billionaire with alleged ties to the Russian mob, Firtash is facing bribery-related charges in the U.S. and fighting extradition from Vienna. He once attempted to buy and redevelop the famous Drake Hotel in New York with the now-incarcerated Paul Manafort, Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman. And he’s seen by Ukrainian anti-corruption activists and Western governments as a corrupt instrument of Russia.”

 

So former President Donald Trump’s personal attorney — the man who was actively working to sabotage Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign — was also doing business with a man who has deep ties to the Kremlin and the Russian mob.

The mention of Firtash in the court filings is also yet another connection that Trump has to Russia, despite his protestations that he has never done business with Russian entities or sought assistance from the Russian government.

If nothing else, the ongoing legal case against Giuliani could give us greater insight into just how deeply Donald Trump is tied to Russia, the Kremlin, and Russian organized crime. It may also wind up leading to criminal charges against the former president, his children, and members of the Trump Organization.
