What He Believes

  1. The FBI leaks a false clearance of Trump's ties to Putin, and the NYT covers it, the same paper that reported the false FBI leak claiming my girl was under criminal investigation.

    Slate has an update on their story, that is pretty damning, making it clear that the NYT did their own 'research,' yet chose to publish an FBI leak right before the election.

    This isn't a private email server that didn't send anything marked classified at the time (Comey retroactively classified some, The State Department didn't agree, but Comey prevailed, with the better too many than too few philosophy) but a story about a secret server, with hard evidence that suggests was used only to send messages between Trump and Alfa Bank.

    Here’s some excerpts from the Slate story titled Was a Trump Server Communicating with Russia?

    “Vixie wrote central strands of the DNS code that makes the internet work. After studying the logs, he concluded, “The parties were communicating in a secretive fashion. This is more akin to what criminal syndicates do if they are putting together a project... Put differently, the logs suggested that Trump and Alfa had configured something like a digital hotline connecting the two entities, shutting out the rest of the world, and designed to obscure its own existence.

    Alfa Bank emerged in the messy post-Soviet scramble to create a private Russian economy. Its founder was a Ukrainian called Mikhail Fridman. He erected his empire in a frenetic rush—in a matter of years, he rose from operating a window washing company to the purchase of the Bolshevik Biscuit Factory to the co-founding of his bank with some friends from university."

    Fridman recruited a skilled economist and shrewd operator called Pyotr Aven. In the early ’90s, Aven worked with Vladimir Putin in the St. Petersburg government—and according to several accounts, helped Putin wiggle out of accusations of corruption that might have derailed his ascent." "Fridman and Aven have significant business interests to promote in the West. One of their holding companies, LetterOne, has vowed to invest as much as $3 billion in U.S. health care. "

    “The New York Times investigative reporter Eric Lichtblau met with a Washington representative of Alfa Bank on Sept. 21, and the bank denied having any connection to Trump.” “The Times hadn’t yet been in touch with the Trump campaign - Lichtblau spoke with the campaign a week later—but shortly after it reached out to Alfa, the Trump domain name in question seemed to suddenly stop working.” “The computer scientists believe there was one logical conclusion to be drawn: The Trump Organization shut down the server after Alfa was told that the Times might expose the connection.”

    “Four days later, on Sept. 27, the Trump Organization created a new host name, ...... which enabled communication to the very same server via a different route.

    “Soon after the New York Times began to ask questions, the traffic between the servers stopped cold.”

    “Richard Burt, who helped Trump write the speech in which he first laid out his foreign policy, serves on Alfa’s senior advisory board.”

    “What the scientists amassed wasn’t a smoking gun. It’s a suggestive body of evidence that doesn’t absolutely preclude alternative explanations. But this evidence arrives in the broader context of the campaign and everything else that has come to light: The efforts of Donald Trump’s former campaign manager to bring Ukraine into Vladimir Putin’s orbit; the other Trump adviser whose communications with senior Russian officials have worried intelligence officials; the Russian hacking of the DNC and John Podesta’s email.”

    But the FBI leaks, and the Times reports that the FBI has also concluded that the Russian hacks weren’t meant to help Donald Trump. Really? And the NYT reports it. Is Judith Miller back there again, a new and even creepier Judith?

    Slam dunk anyone?

    Oh that NYT!!!
