1. Well, I don't even know what this means, Peek, but THANK YOU for posting - the whole thread is

“HUNH?!”

It seems one Michael Avenatti has started the trend of eying c-span footage when he posted the clip of that Qatar guy, Ahmed al-Rumaihi, getting on the elevator on...whatever the hell day that was...

And this is ALL publicly available footage!!! - and it’s been right in our faces for ages...have mercy -

Thank you!!

2. Looks like WaterBluSky was picking up on AgentHades post:

Here is the January 9th 2017 TT elevator cam, the day when Victor Vekselberg met with Cohen. Not sure if he came through this entrance or the backdoor one used by Kislyak and Gorkov. Worth a shot to look for.


?s=20

...fwiw...

This just feels like a massive find, thanks again, Peep -

6. Yup, Cohen is the deputy financial chair of the RNC $$$$$

and funneled money to various Repubs in both chambers, especially to Ryan and McConnell. He still has this position too! Cohen was giving GOP tons of foreign money.

18. Indeed. They're all dirty. NRA for one instance

The New York Times and McClatchy reported significant evidence that Russian officials used the NRA to funnel money illegally into the Trump campaign.

"The NRA spent an unprecedented $30 million to install Trump in the White House."
https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/features/russian-campaign-to-infiltrate-nra-elect-trump-w518587

McConnell was most certainly in on it, including all back channels. This is a conspiracy and I wish the press would start calling it what it is: Treason.

Why do we have military bases throughout the world? Mostly to monitor the Russians, so they say.

Have we now lost our democracy?

Smh. 😖

On November 29, 2016, President Donald Trump announced that Chao was his choice for secretary of transportation. Chao previously served in President George W. Bush's Cabinet as secretary of labor from 2001 to 2009.[2]

25. Always thought was payback for Mitch menacing Obama/FBI from TrumpRussia Inves reveal (Aug)

Probably agreed upon that summer between Mitch & Trump anticipating all the griftable $ that would flow through Trumps Privatized
Infrastructure Plan. Also to secure Mitch's continued protections. So the Chao announcement was ready to go right afer rump won.

But we also know that Mitch funneled millions from Putin's Oligarch Web (Blavnick,Derepaska, Veselberg) through his RSCC & GOP PAc to himself, Rubio,McCain (two Senators Trump needed to win over) and Scott Walker ,John Kaisich (two Rep Govs in "purple" states Repugs needed the results to count for Trump)

This tape is great. Shows Mitch very much in Trump Tower on a day we know that Trump & the Putin's Oligarch viper(s) were scheming with Trump. And what time did McConnell arrive...how come no camera of that? Did Mitch enter secretly then feel after the meeting that the TrumpTreason Program was so safe from detection that he was safe to waltz out the front door?

Hubris is a bitch, Mitch.

20. If that's the case . . .

I invite McConnell to do this:



In the meantime, since the Republicans made such a big deal out of a chance meeting between Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch, I expect nothing less from our good friends in the popular media regarding McConnell's activities. That is, the darkest innuendo, rankest speculation, persistent rumor-mongering, and furrowed brows about lingering questions and gathering clouds.

Were they there to kiss the ring or perhaps put into practice what they learned by reading "The Art of the Deal"?

27. Also on this day, David Bossie and Jack Ma make an appearance:


?s=20

David N. Bossie has served as president of Citizens United and Citizens United Foundation since 2001. Beginning in August 2016, Bossie took a five month leave of absence to serve as Deputy Campaign Manager for Donald J. Trump for President. He was then named Deputy Executive Director for the Trump Presidential Transition Team.


?s=20


?s=20

...I keep thinking of this:

(Dec. 2016)

President-elect Donald Trump told reporters on Saturday that messages "should be sent via courier like in the old days" to ensure security.

"It's very important, if you have something really important, write it out and have it delivered by courier, the old fashioned way because I'll tell you what, no computer is safe," Trump responded when asked about the importance of cybersecurity, according to pool reporters.

http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/312334-trumps-solution-to-cyberattacks-write-it-down-and-send-it-by

...okay, courier or “in person” would work, eh?

So on this day we have Cohen, Vekselberg, McConnell, Bossie, Ma and LOSER45 present (that we know of) - and a tweeter pointed out that Erik Prince met that mobster in the Seychelles on Jan. 11, whatever that may mean

As usual, I know nothing, but...damn

28. It was the manner in which McConnell stood by Trump so proudly when the majority of the GOP

said Trump was a farce; and the way Ryan suddenly changed positions on Trump, that makes them look suspicious.
Traitors.

30. Isn't the more critical question about exactly what time McConnell was there?

People can meet on the same day with a contact who had multiple meetings, but without being involved in those discussions that took place earlier or later. Now, I'm remembering that thing with Ryan and other congressional members and the vow that "this is not to be discussed" or something of that nature. What "this" was I'm not sure, but I believe it had everything to do with the Russian connection through various donations through a multitude of fronts, and I'm dead certain that McConnell would have known about and been involved with as well. I'm not saying he's not guilty of meeting with Vekselberg or any other oligarch. I'm just saying that the time stamp is the most important, and from the tweet, it's not clear whether he was arriving at the same time.

37. Texin, I know I'm inferring perhaps more than I should, and yes, we don't really know what

went on that day (or others)...but here is my best shot at putting times on this day:


Okay - the tape is 7:54 long...(I don’t know what time of the day it covers exactly) -

At 2:04 - David Bossie appears, goes up

At 2:15 - Jack Ma appears, goes up

At 2:29 - McConnel leaves

At 2:58 - Spanky comes down with Ma

Vekselberg is much later!! He arrives at 6:48 on the tape and leaves at 7:18

...meanwhile, way before that, I think you’re referring to June 15, 2016?

KIEV, Ukraine — A month before Donald Trump clinched the Republican nomination, one of his closest allies in Congress — House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy — made a politically explosive assertion in a private conversation on Capitol Hill with his fellow GOP leaders: that Trump could be the beneficiary of payments from Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“There’s two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump,” McCarthy (R-Calif.) said, according to a recording of the June 15, 2016, exchange, which was listened to and verified by The Washington Post. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher is a Californian Republican known in Congress as a fervent defender of Putin and Russia.

House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) immediately interjected, stopping the conversation from further exploring McCarthy’s assertion, and swore the Republicans present to secrecy.

Before the conversation, McCarthy and Ryan had emerged from separate talks at the Capitol with Ukrainian Prime Minister Vladi­mir Groysman, who had described a Kremlin tactic of financing populist politicians to undercut Eastern European democratic institutions.

At any rate...there sure are a lot of interesting mobsters coming and going on this day, and the Qatar guy whose name escapes me met Cohen there AW GEEZ I think in mid-December, ‘16..

...and no, I cannot “keep up”!!
