Investigation on Russia Probe Origins Intensifies as Bombshell Memo Emerges

“This once again shows officials at the FBI and DOJ were well aware the dossier was a lie—from very early on in the process all the way to when they made the conscious decision to include it in a FISA application,” he told the Hill. “The fact that Christopher Steele and his partisan research document were treated in any way seriously by our Intelligence Community leaders amounts to malpractice.”

Hillary Clinton spawned the Russia hoax. Christopher Steele is merely its front man

Following the complete exoneration of President Trump on the hoax allegations of collusion with Russia, the legacy media is attempting to pick up the pieces and investigate what went wrong.

The never-questioned nugget at the heart of the collusion hoax is the claim that Russia wanted Trump elected. Why would they support Trump when Hillary sold US uranium to Russia, Bill Clinton made $500,000 for a speech, and the Russians donated $145 million dollars to the Clinton Foundation? When Trump won, the Hillary-Obama-MSM machine conspired to frame him with her own sins. As for the Russians, they must be gnashing their teeth that Hillary wasn’t elected – but they can’t very well complain, can they?

Stolen Archives Show the True History of Russia Collusion

Numerous examples are provided in a soon to be released book, Judgment in Moscow, by the heroic Soviet dissident, Vladimir Bukovsky.  He makes use of extensive first hand documents that he personally stole from Russia’s Central Committee (C.C.) archives, which have never before been accessible to Americans.

The media must be tripping over themselves to see what Bukovsky reveals…right?

Well, not so much.  Because the C.C. documents demonstrate, irrefutably, that the American Establishment was the one willingly and repeatedly colluding with Russia — an inconvenient fact.

#MeToo! Trudeau warns of evil Russian interference in upcoming parliamentary elections

“We’ve seen over the past number of years an increase in the interference or the implication of foreign actors in democratic processes,” Trudeau told a Toronto news conference on April 5.

“We saw very clearly that countries like Russia are behind a lot of the divisive campaigns; a lot of the divisive social media, you know, spreads [and has] turned our politics even more divisive and more anger-filled than they have been in the past,” he said.

Donald Trump tells Russia to ‘get out’ of Venezuela as tensions rise

Donald Trump has demanded that Russia “get out” of Venezuela after 100 of its troops landed to help embattled president Nicolás Maduro, escalating a war of words between Washington and Moscow.

The US president’s rebuke was delivered while he held White House talks with the wife of Juan Guaidó, the Venezuelan opposition politician who has declared himself interim president.

America, along with many European and South American nations, supports Mr Guaidó’s claim to the presidency while Russia and China are backing Mr Maduro.

This is how people who collude with Putin always talk to Russia.

Ukraine: To Die in Mariupol

On April 3, 2018, Russian President Vladimir Putin — upon winning the war Syria while protecting his beleaguered client, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, from a rebel uprising supported by the U.S. and Sunni Gulf states — had some more good news. US President Donald J. Trump had given instructions to the American military to begin planning for the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Syria. Although the official decision was announced only on December 21, the Kremlin evidently gambled that Trump might be serious about the withdrawal.

It was only on November 25, 2018 that the West awakened to a new and potentially unsettling threat to world peace, this time in the Sea of Azov. Putin, who had largely frozen his war there in 2015, was now defrosting it. There had been no serious response from the West.

‘Welcome To Hell’: Life In A Notorious Russian Women’s Prison

From kittens tossed into blazing furnaces to prisoners losing fingers slaving for hours at sewing machines in a rat-infested sweatshop, IK-14 prison for women in Russia’s central region of Mordovia is one of the most dreaded female correctional facilities in the country.

Such is the notoriety of the prison, women condemned to serve there often take extreme measures to avoid it, including slitting their wrists. And Pussy Riot member Nadezhda Tolokonnikova said the reputation of prison IK-14 was known across Russia.

“As the inmates say, ‘If you haven’t done time in Mordovia, you haven’t done time, ” said Tolokonnikova, who herself served prison time at the facility in 2013.

South America Is a Battlefield in the New Cold War

The political crisis in Venezuela has pitted the U.S. against a dictator who refuses to leave office. But the crisis has a broader significance: It shows that Latin America has again become an arena in which rival great powers struggle for influence and advantage. As the U.S. faces surging geopolitical rivalry around the world, its position is also coming under pressure in its own backyard.

Venezuela crisis: Why Russia has so much to lose

As the political and economic pressure on Nicolás Maduro mounts, Venezuela’s president believes there is one person he can rely on – Vladimir Putin.

The Kremlin has accused the opposition leader Juan Guaidó of an “illegal attempt to seize power”, backed by the United States. Moscow says it will do “everything required” to support Nicolás Maduro as Venezuela’s “legitimate president”.

But Russia’s appetite for protecting relations with Caracas may be more limited than its rhetoric suggests.
