"Probably a Gimmick" - Fitness Frenzy


« on: April 11, 2017, 06:23:33 PM »



The FBI obtained a secret court order last summer to monitor the communications of an adviser to presidential candidate Donald Trump, part of an investigation into possible links between Russia and the campaign, law enforcement and other U.S. officials said.

The FBI and the Justice Department obtained the warrant targeting Carter Pageís communications after convincing a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court judge that there was probable cause to believe Page was acting as an agent of a foreign power, in this case Russia, according to the officials.

This is the clearest evidence so far that the FBI had reason to believe during the 2016 presidential campaign that a Trump campaign adviser was in touch with Russian agents. Such contacts are now at the center of an investigation into whether the campaign coordinated with the Russian government to swing the election in Trumpís favor.

Page has not been accused of any crimes, and it is unclear whether the Justice Department might later seek charges against him or others in connection with Russiaís meddling in the 2016 presidential election. The counterintelligence investigation into Russian efforts to influence U.S. elections began in July, officials have said. Most such investigations donít result in criminal charges.

The officials spoke about the court order on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss details of a counterintelligence probe.

Wasn't it already established that he was in contact with Victor Podobnyy?

I posted this in another thread last week:


Former Trump adviser admits to 2015 communication with Russian spy
https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/former-trump-adviser-admits-to-2015-communication-with-russian-spy/2017/04/04/a09d7384-193b-11e7-9887-1a5314b56a08_story.html?utm_term=.c7314472ad86


Carter Page, who served briefly as a foreign policy adviser to Donald Trumpís presidential campaign, made an appearance in a federal espionage case several years ago because he communicated with a Russian intelligence agent under surveillance by the FBI.

In a statement released Tuesday, Page confirmed his role in the 2015 Justice Department spy case, adding another twist to the still unfolding story of Trumpís peculiar and expanding ties to people connected to Russia.

Oh no.  More "seedy ties to Russia."  The 9-11 Troofer-like conspiracy theory lives on. 

But this does help support Trumps claim that Obama was spying on him.

it doesn't support Trumps claim at all

FBI was monitoring someone who briefly worked for Trump and the reason has NOTHING to do with Trump and of course, the entity doing it was not Obama but the FBI

btw Trump - great job on the "extreme vetting" of the people working for you.

"Among other things, the application cited contacts that he had with a Russian intelligence operative in New York City in 2013, officials said."

Wait.  This guy has a meeting with a Russian intelligence operative in 2013, two years before Trump decides to run for president and three years before Trump is elected president, and this is evidence that Trump colluded with the Russian government to beat Hillary in November 2016?  LOL!  This is "Obama was born in Kenya" approved garbage.  

Has anyone come up with a name for these idiots?  I put this in the same basket with the faked moon landing conspiracy theorists, 9-11 Troofers, and Birthers.  It is stunning how some ordinarily very smart people are caught up in this nonsense.

Wow, a whole two years?!  Roll Eyes  They probably didn't even recognize each other in court.  And it's not like the spy ring was charged with seeking info on US sanctions and a member of  trump's team was later fired for lying about speaking to Russian officials about sanctions and then that same team member later asked for immunity to testify or anything suspicious like that.

Perfect example of you conspiracy theory nuts stringing together a bunch of things that have nothing to do with (and certainly do not prove) your whacky conspiracy.  Also an example of typing a whole lot without actually saying anything.  You see this almost daily with Democrats in DC on this Russia conspiracy theory.  

And speaking of lying, Flynn was fired for not telling Pence the truth about his conversation, not the substance of the conversation.  It's true Flynn didn't tell Pence about talking to having a discussion about sanctions, but the sanctions weren't really the issue.

It's more like the people who say a cruise missile was shot into the Pentagon on 9/11.  And the people who say Obama's birth certificate is fake.  Peas in a pod.
