    “This is what collusion with Russia looks like": Feds say Manafort pal gave campaign info to spies
    New Russia sanctions reveal a direct line between Trump’s campaign chief and Russian intelligence agencies

    Trump campaign chief Paul Manafort passed "sensitive" information to Russian intelligence agents during the 2016 campaign, the Treasury Department said Thursday.

    Konstantin Kilimnik, who worked closely with Manafort on behalf of Russian-backed oligarchs in Ukraine, was hit with sanctions in the Biden administration's latest response to Russian election meddling. The Treasury Department said in a news release announcing the sanctions that Kilimnik was a known Russian "agent" and "provided the Russian Intelligence Services with sensitive information on polling and campaign strategy."
    The Treasury Department statement marks the first time that the government directly said that Kilimnik provided the internal data he received to Russian intelligence agencies.

    Kilimnik, who also sought to "promote the narrative that Ukraine, not Russia, had interfered" in the 2016 presidential election, according to the release, was sanctioned for also engaging in "foreign interference" in the 2020 election. The FBI is offering a $250,000 reward for information leading to his arrest.

    Kilimnik was previously indicted in former special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation in 2018 for alleged witness tampering after prosecutors said he and Manafort "repeatedly contacted" two individuals "in an effort to secure materially false testimony" in the probe. The Mueller investigation found that Manafort shared polling data from Trump's campaign with Kilimnik, who "has ties to a Russian intelligence service." Many of the relevant parts of the report were redacted, though it did say that Rick Gates, Trump's former deputy campaign manager and a mutual associate of both Kilimnik and Manafort, believed that Kilimnik was a "spy."

    A Senate Intelligence Committee report released last year also found that Manafort had on several occasions passed internal polling data and campaign strategy to Kilimnik, who it said "may have been connected" to Russian intelligence, but these sections were likewise redacted. Kilimnik was mentioned 819 times in the report, including in one section that raised the "possibility of Manafort's potential connection" to Russia's "hack and leak operation."

    Kilimnik was a key figure in both investigations. The Mueller report described a meeting between Manafort, Gates and Kilimnik at a Manhattan cigar club where Manafort instructed Gates to bring printouts of campaign polling data and later handed it to Kilimnik.

    "They also discussed the status of the Trump Campaign and Manafort's strategy for winning Democratic votes in Midwestern states," the Mueller report said. "Months before that meeting, Manafort had caused internal polling data to be shared with Kilimnik, and the sharing continued for some period of time after their August meeting."

    The report said that Gates continued to "periodically" send internal polling data to Kilimnik after the meeting at Manafort's behest. The report said Manafort expected Kilimnik to share the information with Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska, a former client of Manafort and a close associate of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Prosecutors said in court documents that Manafort was $10 million in debt to Deripaska when he volunteered to lead the Trump campaign for free.

    The Senate report went further, identifying Kilimnik as a "Russian intelligence officer."

    "Manafort's presence on the campaign and proximity to Trump created opportunities for the Russian intelligence services to exert influence over, and acquire confidential information on, the Trump Campaign," the report said. "The Committee assesses that Kilimnik likely served as a channel to Manafort for Russian intelligence services, and that those services likely sought to exploit Manafort's access to gain insight [into] the Campaign."
    The Senate report also said that Kilimnik may be connected to the hacks of the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton's campaign. Documents stolen during that hacking operation were later published by WikiLeaks. Gates testified in 2019 that Trump adviser Roger Stone may have had an inside line to the organization and told Trump in July of 2016 that "more information would be coming" from WikiLeaks, contradicting Trump's sworn statements in the Mueller investigation. Gates said Stone had relayed this information to Manafort as well, who "thought that would be great."

    A Collusion Tale: China and the Bidens

    Among the more amazing revelations in the Biden corruption scandal that the media-Democrat complex is blocking voters from seeing is this: The corrupt Chinese businessmen with whom the Bidens were colluding not only had a record of buying political influence, not only were known to have high-level ties to the Chinese Communist Party and the regime, but also were clandestine agents of China — at least, that’s what the FBI and Justice Department seem to have told the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.

    Trump collusion exposed in 2021: Aide caught red-handed in Russia back channel

    skfdezercsb11.jpg



    For the first time ever, the U.S. Government is linking the 2016 Trump Campaign directly to the Russian government. The U.S. Treasury now states that an ally of convicted Trump Campaign Chair Paul Manafort funneled internal campaign polling directly back to the Kremlin, and MSNBC's Chief Legal Correspondent Ari Melber reports on the news with former prosecutor Nick Akerman.

    It's so amusing how our resident lunatic Trump hater never acknowledges the TRUE collusion story. The Trump Russia collusion has only been debunked a zillion times including by the Mueller Report but the Fake News media keeps using this as a DISTRACTION whenever they need it.

    US Treasury Releases Evidence Of Trump Campaign/Russia Collusion

    skfdezercsb11.jpg



    U.S. Treasury Department report is exposing Russian President Vladimir Putin’s malicious actions. Now that his lapdog is out of the White House, details about what Moscow really did to the U.S. are unfolding. We knew something was up, because Donald Trump acted so strangely around the man, going well beyond simple admiration. So what have we learned about the Russian leader?

    The Treasury report exposed Konstantin Kilimnik as Trump’s former campaign manager’s Paul Manafort’s former employee, business associate, and oh so much more. A bipartisan 966-page Senate Intelligence Committee report revealed Kilimnik is a Russian Intelligence Services officer. And he was the hub for Moscow’s interference in the 2016 election. The reason was his close ties to Manafort.

    In a Thursday Treasury Department news release regarding the latest sanctions, we learned:

    In a Thursday Treasury Department news release regarding the latest sanctions, we learned:
    KILIMNIK PROVIDED THE RUSSIAN INTELLIGENCE SERVICES WITH SENSITIVE INFORMATION ON POLLING AND CAMPAIGN STRATEGY. ADDITIONALLY, KILIMNIK SOUGHT TO PROMOTE THE NARRATIVE THAT UKRAINE, NOT RUSSIA, HAD INTERFERED IN THE 2016 U.S. PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION. IN 2018, KILIMNIK WAS INDICTED ON CHARGES OF OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE AND CONSPIRACY TO OBSTRUCT JUSTICE REGARDING UNREGISTERED LOBBYING WORK. ‘



    KILIMNIK HAS ALSO SOUGHT TO ASSIST DESIGNATED FORMER PRESIDENT OF UKRAINE VIKTOR YANUKOVYCH. AT YANUKOVYCH’S DIRECTION, KILIMNIK SOUGHT TO INSTITUTE A PLAN THAT WOULD RETURN YANUKOVYCH TO POWER IN UKRAINE.’

    The report continued:

    ‘KILIMNIK WAS DESIGNATED PURSUANT TO E.O. 13848 FOR HAVING ENGAGED IN FOREIGN INTERFERENCE IN THE U.S. 2020 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION. KILIMNIK WAS ALSO DESIGNATED PURSUANT TO E.O. 13660 FOR ACTING FOR OR ON BEHALF OF YANUKOVYCH. YANUKOVYCH, WHO IS CURRENTLY HIDING IN EXILE IN RUSSIA, WAS DESIGNATED IN 2014 PURSUANT TO E.O. 13660 FOR HIS ROLE IN VIOLATING UKRAINIAN SOVEREIGNTY.’



    ‘THE FBI IS OFFERING A REWARD OF UP TO $250,000 FOR INFORMATION LEADING TO THE ARREST OF KONSTANTIN VIKTOROVICH KILIMNIK.’



    ‘KONSTANTIN VIKTOROVICH KILIMNIK IS WANTED BY THE FBI FOR OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE AND ENGAGING IN A CONSPIRACY TO OBSTRUCT JUSTICE WHICH OCCURRED IN WASHINGTON, D.C. AND ELSEWHERE FROM IN OR ABOUT AND BETWEEN FEBRUARY 23, 2018, AND APRIL OF 2018.’

    Screen-Shot-2021-04-15-at-11.44.54-AM.pn

    A 2018 INDICTMENT ISSUED BY THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA ALLEGES THAT KILIMNIK KNOWINGLY AND INTENTIONALLY ATTEMPTED TO CORRUPTLY PERSUADE ANOTHER PERSON, WITH INTENT TO INFLUENCE, DELAY, AND PREVENT TESTIMONY IN AN OFFICIAL PROCEEDING.’

    Incorrect sentence structure, you don't use periods, you use commas.
    Just remember, I will remind you of this, the same way you said the Palin woman had a "bright future"
    or the comment that I was "out in lala land if I thought BIden was going to be President". We, indeed will see!

    A one word sentence followed by another one word sentence is a trendy advertising and editorial style.

    I’ve used it. It’s intended to be dramatic and clear. But in this case it’s just hot air.
