There’s a big #KremlinGate story in the works, patriots. Don’t know when it will break, but it’s coming in the near future. Stay tuned.

4. As someone who is in the media, the first rule of social media is that you don't tease stories.

You never, ever tweet something like "Something big in the works" Or "We're going to have something big for you coming soon."

The only people that tweet that are people who don't have anything valid, conspiracy theories, etc.

7. I heard the Sun was going to come up tomorrow

But there was no link, so that could be Fake News.

8. Maybe So

And you may be right because the prediction didn't make any claim as to which direction on the compass the sun would rise.

Obviously a fake.

11. Team Patriot is good on details but lousy on timing.

They know the players and what’s coming, but not when. When they try to guess when, they’re wrong. I think that’s because their sources are not on Mueller’s team but are witnesses connected to the cases. Mueller sets the schedule and changes it as he needs to, without notice.

14. Counterchekist is probably referring to Levashov's recent guilty plea.

He ran the Kelihos botnet that spread malware and (I think will be shown) helped elect Trump.

Russian National Who Operated Kelihos Botnet Pleads Guilty to Fraud, Conspiracy, Computer Crime and Identity Theft Offenses

Peter Yuryevich Levashov, aka “Petr Levashov,” “Peter Severa,” “Petr Severa” and “Sergey Astakhov,” 38, of St. Petersburg, Russia, pleaded guilty today in U.S. District Court in Hartford, Connecticut, to offenses stemming from his operation of the Kelihos botnet, which he used to facilitate malicious activities including harvesting login credentials, distributing bulk spam e-mails, and installing ransomware and other malicious software.
....
“Mr. Levashov used the Kelihos botnet to distribute thousands of spam e-mails, harvest login credentials, and install malicious software on computers around the world,” said U.S. Attorney Durham. “He also participated in online forums on which stolen identities, credit card information and cybercrime tools were traded and sold. For years, Mr. Levashov lived quite comfortably while his criminal behavior disrupted the lives of thousands of computer users. Thanks to the collaborative work of the FBI and our partners in law enforcement, private industry and academia, a prolific cybercriminal has been neutralized, and has now admitted his guilt in a U.S. courtroom.”

....

According to court documents and statements made in court, a botnet is a network of computers infected with malicious software that allows a third party to control the entire computer network without the knowledge or consent of the computer owners. Since the late 1990s until his arrest in April 2017, Levashov controlled and operated multiple botnets, including the Storm, Waledac and Kelihos botnets, to harvest personal information and means of identification (including email addresses, usernames and logins, and passwords) from infected computers. To further the scheme, Levashov disseminated spam and distributed other malware, such as banking Trojans and ransomware, and advertised the Kelihos botnet spam and malware services to others for purchase in order to enrich himself. Over the course of his criminal career, Levashov participated in and moderated various online criminal forums on which stolen identities and credit cards, malware and other criminal tools of cybercrime were traded and sold.

Spanish authorities arrested Levashov in Barcelona on April 7, 2017, based upon a criminal complaint and arrest warrant issued in the District of Connecticut. At the time of Levashov’s arrest, Kelihos infected at least 50,000 computers.

....
Judge Chatigny scheduled sentencing for Sept. 6, 2019. Levashov is detained pending sentencing.
