Democrat Senator SNAGGED: Text Messages to Russians
Another lying Democrat scoundrel snagged by text messages to Russians.
According to Fox News,
Sen. Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee who has been leading a congressional investigation into President Trump’s alleged ties to Russia, had extensive contact last year with a lobbyist for a Russian oligarch who was offering Warner access to former British spy and dossier author Christopher Steele, according to text messages obtained exclusively by Fox News.
“We have so much to discuss u need to be careful but we can help our country,” Warner texted the lobbyist, Adam Waldman, on March 22, 2017.
“I’m in,” Waldman, whose firm has ties to Hillary Clinton, texted back to Warner.
So Warner plotted to bring down Donald Trump with the help of a Russian lobbyist.
But this clown had the nerve to slam Donald Trump, Jr for a meeting with the Russians, that we learned involved no collusion whatsoever.
Recap: Sen. Mark Warner slams Donald Trump Jr. for a 20-minute pre-election meeting with Russians. In an effort to set the record straight, Donald Trump, Jr released ALL documents related to the meeting, as has been cleared completely of any wrongdoing.
However, while accusing Donald Trump Jr. of shenanigans, Senator Warner secretly held meetings with with Russians in an effort to entrap Donald Trump, Sr.
We know the outcome. The Steele Dossier.
Fox News continues,
Throughout the text exchanges, Warner seemed particularly intent on connecting directly with Steele without anyone else on the Senate Intelligence Committee being in the loop — at least initially. In one text to the lobbyist, Warner wrote that he would “rather not have a paper trail” of his messages.
I can see why Warner would want this. Can’t have investigative committees connecting the dots on the witch hunt against Donald Trump.
That certainly follows the course of action of the Democrats. Peter Strzok and Lisa Page were jubilant at figuring out ways to get around those pesky federal records requirements. As TBS wrote:
FBI officials Lisa Page and Peter Strzok seem to discuss how to evade federal records requirements in private texts.
Page: Have a meeting with turgal about getting iphone in a day or so
Strzok: Oh hot damn. . . We get around our security/monitoring issues?
Page: No, he’s proposing that we just stop following them. Apparently the requirement to capture texts came from [Office of Management and Budget], but we’re the only org (I’m told) who is following that rule. His point is, if no one else is doing it why should we. . . I’m told – thought I have seen – that there is an IG report that says everyone is failing. But one has changed anything, so why not just join in the failure.
No pulling a Weiner on this one, and claiming somebody “jacked” his phone or some other nonsense.
As Fox News added,
An aide to Warner confirmed to Fox News that the text messages are authentic. The messages, which were obtained from a Republican source, are all marked “CONFIDENTIAL” and are not classified. They were turned over to the Senate panel by Waldman last September.
America, this is the drip-drip of the investigation.
Republican lawmakers have finally learned how to fight. They now release information in bite-sized chunks, so the American people can savor each delicious morsel. An investigation that was supposed to be pointed at Donald Trump, Trump Jr, Flynn, Manafort, Kushner, Page, and so on now clearly has its sights on nothing but Democrats.
And more drips are coming.
As for Waldman, he is best known for signing a $40,000 monthly retainer in 2009 and 2010 to lobby the U.S. government on behalf of controversial Russian billionaire Oleg V. Deripaska. Deripraska had his visa revoked by the State Department in 2006 because of charges, which he has denied, that he has organized crime ties.
In case you missed that, Senator Warner colluded with a lobbyist of a Russian crime boss. The Russian was consider so nefarious that the Obama administration revoked his visa.
Democrats and their partners.
