Investigative journo says FBI knew about recently outed ‘Russian spy,’ but ignored her … until now Conservative News Today

mikenova shared this story from Comments on: Investigative journo says FBI knew about recently outed ‘Russian spy,’ but ignored her … until now.

Certain members of the FBI reportedly knew about recently charged Russian operative Maria Butina and her operations but did not warn anyone.

Butina was indicted this week on charges of being a covert Russian agent but, according to investigative reporter John Solomon, the FBI knew about Butina’s nefarious activities as she befriended  leaders of the National Rifle Association and the Conservative Political Action Conference.

“I’ll tell you a little story I’ve never told before,” Solomon told Fox Business Network’s Lou Dobbs on Wednesday.

“In March of 2015,  I observed her at several events and really cozying up to conservatives and making what I thought was a weak-handed case that she was this courageous gun rights activist going up against Putin and there would one day be a Second Amendment in Russia,” Solomon recounted.

Trumpistan: Den-is Ten of Thives

Skating with Sharks: It is not “The Wilderness of Mirrors” that is the issue but The Den of Ten, The Den Of Thieves. It is not Poetry and the endless conflicts of loyalties (sugarcoated with the bittersweet Judaeo-Christian guilt and morals) but money, plain and simple.

If this is not treason, then what is it? – The Washington Post
 

mikenova shared this story .


White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders speaks to the media during the daily press briefing at the White House on Wednesday. (AP)

Let’s wind back the clock a few eons, back to, oh, Tuesday. Many commentators were all hot and bothered by Donald Trump’s abysmal Helsinki summit. Some people — like former CIA director John Brennan — dared call it treason. This word was too much for Kevin Williamson, however, who took to the Weekly Standard to warn about it being thrown around too casually:

President Trump, who has a little something of the later Roman emperors in him, is not engaged in making war on the United States, though it is galling to defend him from such charges given his own propensity for talking treason lightly.

He is not engaged in treason or anything like treason. He is engaged in hypocrisy and moral illiteracy. He is a frank admirer of caudillos such as Vladimir Putin, because in his mind ruthlessness, grasping, and amorality are associated with effective leadership. Hence the praise for Kim Jong-un. …

Donald Trump admires Vladimir Putin. There’s plenty to criticize in that without making up ridiculous claims about treason. Trump, and many of his Republican enablers, are irresponsible. Unhappily, they are not uniquely irresponsible. Whatever depths they sink to, the Left is ready to meet them there with a steam shovel.

Behind The Charges Against Maria Butina
 

mikenova shared this story from Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty.

WASHINGTON — The protest, held in September 2016 across the street from the Russian Embassy in Washington, featured a handful of activists intending to show their opposition to Russian leader Vladimir Putin and upcoming parliamentary elections.

Holding Russian- and English-language signs — “Honk For Russia Without Putin” — the group had been out for about an hour when a red-headed woman approached them and began asking friendly questions.

“She came to us, asked who we were, where we were from,” one of the organizers, Dmitry Valuev, says of the September 2016 incident. She “offered to become friends on Facebook, asked where Russian-speakers hang out in D.C. We took a group photo with our signs, and then she decided to stand with us. Then she left.”

Her name was Maria Butina, and she spent about 30 minutes chatting with the group. Later, Valuev tells RFE/RL, he looked at her Facebook invitation and noticed she was close to Aleksandr Torshin, a Russian lawmaker who has been linked by Spanish investigators to a powerful Russian organized crime group.

“I thought it was outrageous that Putin’s agents openly act in D.C. and don’t even try to hide it,” he told RFE/RL.

Fast-forward 18 months, and the question whether the now-29-year-old Butina was, in fact, a Kremlin agent has deepened considerably, as U.S. law enforcement has accused her of being a Russian government agent and failing to register under the decades-old Foreign Agent Registration Act.

In her arraignment on July 18 in a U.S. federal court in Washington, D.C., Butina’s defense lawyer, Robert Driscoll, entered a not-guilty plea for Butina and said she should be released pending trial.

But U.S. prosecutors argued she might flee the country, possibly with the help of Russian diplomats, and the judge ordered her held without bail pending trial.

Driscoll denied both that his client, who appeared in court in an orange prison jumpsuit, was a Russian agent or a flight risk. Russian officials have reacted angrily to Butina’s July 15 arrest, accusing U.S. officials of trying to undermine the Helsinki summit between President Donald Trump and Russian leader Vladimir Putin.

“U.S. special agents are hunting Russian citizens not only in the U.S. but in other countries, too. We are making all efforts to meet with [Maria] Butina,” Russia’s ambassador to the United States, Anatoly Antonov, told reporters on July 18.

New documents filed by prosecutors on July 18, three days after she was first detained, allege that Butina had extensive communications with Russian intelligence agencies. They also suggested that there was a wider Russian intelligence network in the United States than previously known.

Butina, who reportedly hails from the Siberia city of Barnaul and used to own a furniture store, gained a name for herself in Russia in 2012 as she sought to build a Russian equivalent of the National Rifle Association (NRA), a U.S. gun-rights organization renowned for its formidable lobbying and influence in U.S. politics.

During a Moscow rally in December 2012, Butina told RFE/RL that her efforts were partly in response to mass shootings in the United States.

“What is the right to life, ingrained in our constitution, if you don’t have the right to bear arms? If a person wishes to defend himself, he has no means for protection,” she said.

That caught the attention of American gun-rights activists, and over the next four years she began traveling regularly on tourist visas to the United States, striking up friendships with NRA leaders.

According to court papers, she escorted Torshin, who has been described as her mentor, to several NRA events over several years beginning in 2014. She also documented many of those meetings with ample postings to Facebook and other social-media accounts. Torshin later became a life member of the organization.

In June 2015, she published an opinion piece in the National Interest, a conservative magazine, in which she argued that only a Republican president could improve the then-deteriorating state of relations between Moscow and Washington.

In August 2016, one month before she encountered Valuev and the other protesters outside the Russian Embassy, Butina received a student visa to study international relations at American University in Washington, D.C. That gave her greater flexibility to stay in the United States for a longer period.

By the time of her arrival in Washington, prosecutors allege, she had struck up a personal relationship with an American political operative and also offered sex to another unidentified person in exchange for a position with a special-interest organization.

The first individual is described in court papers as U.S. Person 1; The Washington Post has reported that the description matches that of Paul Erickson, a longtime Republican consultant and sometime lobbyist.

On January 20, 2017, Butina attended ceremonies surrounding Trump’s inauguration as president, and she sent to the unnamed Russian official a photo of herself near the U.S. Capitol building.

According to court papers, the Russian official responded: “You’re a daredevil girl! What can I say?” Butina replied: “Good teachers!”

Social-media posts introduced in court also showed Butina attending over several years the National Prayer Breakfast, a must-attend event in Washington for both conservative and many liberal politicians.

In February 2017, she succeeded in leading a group of 12 Russians, including Torshin, to the National Prayer Breakfast. Afterward, according to The Washington Post, Erickson sought to arrange a meeting between Torshin and Trump, who was now president.

According to court papers, the following month, after some U.S. news media began reporting on her activities, the unnamed Russian official wrote to her: “Are your admirers asking for your autographs yet? You have upstaged Anna Chapman. She poses with toy pistols, while you are being published with real ones.”

By the summer of 2017, Butina was under surveillance by the FBI, U.S. attorney Erik Kenerson told the Washington federal court during the July 18 arraignment.

By the fall, she fell under scrutiny not only from law enforcement but also congressional committees. In November, investigators from the Senate Finance Committee contacted Butina asking for documents related to Torshin.

Four months later, the Federal Election Commission — the U.S. government agency tasked with overseeing federal election laws — asked her about “suspicious” campaign contributions. And in April, according to U.S. prosecutors and her defense lawyer, Butina met with investigators from the Senate Intelligence Committee, giving eight hours of testimony and providing thousands of pages of communications.

That same month, the U.S. Treasury Department imposed major financial sanctions on Torshin and 23 other Russian government officials and business leaders, in response to their associations with Putin and their roles in “advancing Russia’s malign activities.”

Also in April, armed FBI agents raided Butina’s Washington apartment, seizing computer equipment, documents, and other materials. On July 14, FBI agents followed Butina and U.S. Person 1 to a rental-truck facility, where they also purchased moving boxes.

Butina was arrested by the FBI the following day as U.S. law enforcement sought to keep her from leaving Washington, D.C. In their filing detailing the final days before her arrest, prosecutors also signaled that more charges could be filed, in particular against U.S. Person 1.

“Even if Butina were only trying to leave the immediate Washington, D.C., area, her sole real tie to the United States at all is U.S. Person 1, who, as the affidavit in support of the complaint demonstrates, was instrumental in aiding her covert influence operation, despite knowing its connections to the Russian Official,” the court papers said.

U.S. prosecutors also alleged that Butina’s personal relationship with U.S. Person 1 was purely a functional part of her covert efforts.

“This relationship does not represent a strong tie to the United States because Butina appears to treat it as simply a necessary aspect of her activities. For example, on at least one occasion, Butina offered an individual other than U.S. Person 1 sex in exchange for a position within a special interest organization,” according to court papers.

American University officials have declined to comment on Butina’s tenure, other than to state she graduated in May 2018.

A year earlier, in April 2017, Butina joined her university classmates on a trip to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, the site of the biggest battle of the U.S. Civil War. There, the students met other international students for a weekend of seminars “to discuss misperceptions, conflicting interpretations of history, and ways to surmount them.”

In a news story published on the university’s website, Butina was quoted as saying the trip was like a “time machine that took us through the present.”
“We had a great time learning about each other — students from all of these countries…that represented different generations and cultures. It helped us to focus on similarities that unite us more than on the differences that divide us,” she was quoted as saying.

Trump’s behaving like a ‘Russian asset’, intel and natsec experts warn
 

mikenova shared this story .

Sign up for the latest Russia investigation updates here»


In Helsinki on Monday, US President Donald Trump touted the “direct, open, deeply productive dialogue” he had with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

And experts warn Putin played Trump like a fiddle.

That was the broad consensus of national-security and intelligence veterans following a bizarre press conference during which Trump stood next to Putin and spent more time denigrating his political opponents and intelligence agencies than he did a hostile foreign power.

Asked by Reuters’ Jeff Mason on Monday whether he held Russia accountable for anything, Trump stunned observers when he said he held “both countries responsible” for the deterioration in US-Russia relations.

Trump failed to mention Russia’s aggression toward Ukraine, its annexation of Crimea, its involvement in Syria, and its aggressive cyber operations around the globe, as well as allegations that it has poisoned former Russian spies abroad, that it played a role in the downing of a Malaysian airliner in 2014, and, above all, that it interfered in the 2016 US election.

Things devolved further when The Associated Press’ Jonathan Lemire asked Trump whether he believed Putin or the US intelligence community on Russia’s election interference, whether he would denounce Putin for Russia’s actions in 2016, and whether he would warn the Russian leader never to do it again.

Trump declined to do so. Instead, he slammed the Democratic National Committee and suggested the FBI was part of a conspiracy to undermine his election victory.

“My people came to me … they said they think it’s Russia” that interfered, Trump said. “I have President Putin. He just said it’s not Russia. I will say this: I don’t see any reason why it would be.”

He added that he had “great confidence” in his “intelligence people” but that Putin “was extremely strong and powerful in his denial” of Russian meddling.

‘Unimaginable’

Robert Deitz, a former top lawyer at the CIA and the National Security Agency, said he was “beyond shocked” to hear Trump’s comments.

“We’re all sort of used to Trump by now, and you say to yourself that we’ve gone as low as we can, and then you see what he said, and it’s so much worse than you’d think,” Deitz said. “Doing this in front of a foreign leader — and that too is someone who’s an adversary and not an ally — is unimaginable.”

William Pomeranz, the deputy director of the Kennan Institute for Advanced Russian Studies at the Woodrow Wilson Center, echoed that view.

“Trump essentially disowned the results of his own intelligence services and believed Vladimir Putin,” Pomeranz said. “It’s one thing for him to say that in a room by himself. It’s another situation when he has Putin right next to him and in theory can challenge him and voice the US’s absolute rejection of what happened during the election, and yet he couldn’t bring himself to do that.”

Trump’s comments floored people across the political spectrum, including lawmakers from both sides of the aisle, intelligence veterans, and even some of his allies.

‘The president of the United States may have been compromised by Russia’

Glenn Carle, a longtime former CIA spy, said he wasn’t the least bit surprised by Trump’s actions because “it’s becoming more and more clear that Trump is either a witting or unwitting Russian asset.”

“People say this is so mystifying, but it’s not,” Carle said. “Intelligence assets become convinced to be spies for multiple reasons. It might start with kompromat or financial hooks, and the asset may be convinced he is acting as a patriot until he becomes accustomed to his role.”

Carle added: “Trump clearly responds favorably to praise. And over the years, the handling officer — Putin, in this case — realizes what the asset wants, and that’s what they provide. Trump wants to be told he’s the greatest, so that’s what you tell him, over and over again, until he comes to believe that is the motivation for his actions.”

One former senior intelligence official, who requested anonymity because they are not directly involved in the proceedings, emphasized that they “absolutely” believe Putin has something on Trump.

“There are four possibilities,” this person told Business Insider. “One is that Trump is not very smart. The second is that he’s lazy and incurious. The third is that he is acting this way toward Russia because of some financial desire, like building a Trump Tower in Moscow. The fourth is that the Russian leader has something serious on him, from either a business or personal standpoint.

“My money is on the latter two,” they said.

Putin, for his part, raised eyebrows on Monday when he did not outright deny that the Russian government has kompromat on the US president.

When an American reporter asked Putin point-blank whether he had compromising material on Trump, Putin offered a lengthy and roundabout response, ultimately saying it was “difficult to imagine an utter nonsense of a bigger scale than this.”

“You have to look at these comments objectively,” said a former senior FBI official who requested anonymity to speak freely. “And when you put it together with Trump’s statements, his affinity toward Putin, his willingness to concede to Russia, his cold shoulder toward the US’s closest allies … at some point you have to start thinking the unthinkable, which is that the president of the United States may have been compromised by Russia.”

Carle agreed.

“Trump may well be sincere about it, but the fact is that he’s behaving like a controlled spy,” he said. “If all signs are that there’s a fox in the chicken coop, then don’t think that there was probably a lightning bolt — there’s probably a fox in the chicken coop.”

FBI boss Wray says Russia engaging in ‘malign influence operations,’ calls Mueller a ‘straight shooter’
 

mikenova shared this story .

FBI Director Christopher Wray on Wednesday defended Special Counsel Robert Mueller as a “straight shooter,” and said the Russia investigation is no “witch hunt.”

Speaking at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado, Wray said he stood by his view that Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election in some capacity and that the threat remained active.

“My view has not changed… Russia attempted to interfere with the last election and it continues to engage in malign influence operations to this day.”

He said the Kremlin’s intentions then, and now, have been “aimed at sowing discord and divisiveness.”

Wray continued, “We haven’t yet seen an effort to target specific election infrastructure this time, but certainly other efforts I would call malign influence operations are very active. We could just be a moment away from it going to the next level.”

TRUMP SAYS MUELLER PROBE HAS DRIVEN ‘WEDGE’ BETWEEN RUSSIA AND U.S., REVEALS PUTIN’S RESPONSE

Wray spoke about other potential cybersecurity threats but noted that “Russia has been by far the most aggressive.”

Panel debate the effects of Russian interference on 'Fox News @ Night.'

The FBI boss said Russian intelligence is actively participating in these tactics through both overt and covert means, sometimes using “fake news,” other times using “propaganda.”

When asked about whether the indictment filed last week against 12 Russian intelligence agents was proof of this, Wray said, “I’m going to let the indictment speak for itself.”

Wray also spoke about ongoing Mueller investigation and claims from the White House that it has no basis to continue.

“I do not believe Special Council Mueller is on a witch hunt. I think it is a professional investigation conducted by a man I’ve know to be a straight shooter.” He declined to comment further, citing confidentiality concerns.

Wray also spoke to the inspector general’s report on the DOJ and FBI’s handling of the Clinton email probe, saying it was “tough” but “fair,” adding that FBI learned some “important lessons” and was working actively to implement the necessary changes.

PUTIN DENIES HAVING DIRT ON TRUMP, CALLS MEDDLING CHARGE ‘UTTERLY RIDICULOUS’

He did, however, say it was important to note the context of the report and that it was focused on a very small number of people at the FBI, for one investigation over a period of about 15 months.

When talking about disgraced FBI Agent Peter Strzok and his anti-Trump texts with colleague and lover Lisa Page, Wray said he planned to let the “disciplinary process” take its course without delay and that he would not respond to “hue and cry.”

“I’m not going to make decisions based on yelling and screaming, I’m going to make decisions based on the process.”

Fox News contributor and Washington Post columnist Marc Thiessen compares President Trump's effort to reset relations with Vladimir Putin to attempts by former Presidents Bush and Obama.

When asked about his relationship with Trump, Wray said it was “very professional.”

“I don’t try to weigh in on all of his opinions… I’m not much of a Twitter guy.”

When asked if he ever considered resigning over revealing sources and methods, Wray said that despite being a “low key guy,” people should not mistake “what my spine is made of.”

“I’ll just leave it at that,” he finished.

ANALYSIS/OPINION:

THE GHOST: THE SECRET LIFE OF CIA SPYMASTER JAMES JESUS ANGLETON

By Jefferson Morley

St. Martin’s Press, $27.95, 336 pages

As a holiday gift, permit me to save you 28 bucks and however much time you might waste on the sorriest excuse for an investigative book that has ever crossed this desk.

Jefferson Morley sets out to prove that James J. Angleton, the longtime — and controversial — head of counterintelligence for the Central Intelligence Agency — was guilty of a medley of sins, including complicity in the murder of President Kennedy.

His “research” consists chiefly of sweeping up every bit of anti-Angleton dung he could in previous books. The more damning the allegation — and the more ridiculous — the better.

One must blink at some of Mr. Morley’s outlandish claims. An example: that Angleton had a homosexual relationship with Kim Philby, the British intelligence officer who also spied for the Soviet Union.

To be sure, the two men knew one another: Angleton was Philby’s liaison for CIA when the latter was assigned to Washington. They had many a chat over a bottle and lunch.

Mr. Morley’s evidence? A comment made by another officer to another author of another book. No substance is visible, just a suspicion. No matter; such is enough for the likes of a “historian” such as Mr. Morley.

To be sure, Philby’s treachery damaged Angleton. He spent his last years searching for “moles” in the CIA, an ill-guided effort that smeared many innocent people. He eventually was fired.

But Mr. Morley has little favorable to say about a career that began in the OSS and had a number of high spots. Brief mention is made of his acquisition of the famed “Stalin speech” in which successor Nikita Khrushchev shook communism to its core.

Why such a book? Mr. Morley is prominent in a claque of deniers who have spent decades trying to prove that someone other than Lee Harvey Oswald killed Kennedy.

Their campaign even reaches the White House. Donald Trump’s intimate friend Roger Stone published a book in 2014 blaming Lyndon Johnson for the murder.

But the main target has been — and will be for eternity, it appears — the Central Intelligence Agency.

For the media, CIA is an easy target. Journalists love writing about “CIA murder plots” against foreign leaders, ignoring the fact that orders came from the White House.

Too, a deceased target can do nothing to rebut outlandish lies. For that matter, even living officers have trouble gaining redress from courts that hold them to be “public figures.”

Enter the deniers and their politics. A strong element among the deniers, like Mr. Morley, are on the far-left of the political spectrum. Hence, they are incapable of fingering a leftist for the most outrageous crime in American history.

Thus their need for a scapegoat, and the utility of Angleton. As Mr. Morley writes, carefully casting his accusation in the form of a question, “Was Angleton running Oswald as part of a plot to assassinate President Kennedy? He certainly had the knowledge and ability to do so.”

Mr. Morley posits that Oswald came to Angleton’s attention because of his journey to the Soviet Union soon after his discharge from the Marine Corps.

Oswald was one of thousands of persons covered by a CIA operation called HTTL/LINGUAL, a mail intercept operation of letters going between the USSR and the U.S. that began in 1952. As CIAcounterintelligence chief, Angleton would know what was discovered.

Ergo, since the agency had a file on Oswald, as it did on uncountable other persons, Angleton perhaps knew — or should have known — of his assassination plans.

Here the key element of Mr. Morley’s indictment — such as it is — was a visit that Oswald paid to the Cuban consulate in Mexico City a few days before Kennedy was killed.

Oswald’s visit was recorded in a video that was either made by the CIA station or passed on to it by cooperative Mexican security. (That the CIA would monitor visitors to a Soviet installation on the U.S. border makes considerable sense.)

In any event, the CIA came up with Oswald’s name, and neither Angleton nor his counterintelligence staff did anything. (One explanation is that no adverse information on Oswald was discovered.)

No matter. Mr. Morley does concede that “whether Angleton manipulated Oswald as part of an assassination plot is unknown.”

Then the zinger: “He certainly abetted those who did. Whoever killed KennedyAngleton protected them. He masterminded the JFK conspiracy cover-up.”

Disclosure: Angleton was a flawed man his last years. We were Arlington neighbors and lunched together several times.

Jim would knock back two or three whiskeys, then most of a bottle of red wine and a brandy or two. And he would expound his favorite conspiracy theory: that the Soviet/Chinese Communist “split” was a subterfuge to deceive the West.

Zany? Perhaps, but a man who devoted his life to protecting America does not reserve such an error-laden hatchet job.
