FBI Admits "Central Evidence" To Spy On Trump For Russia Collusion... Was Russian Disinformation by magnora7 in politics

Q: What date was that?

A: July 27, 2016

Let's look at the headlines for the week prior, what had been in the headlines for a week prior? That it was suspected that her private server had been hacked by foreign governments - most likely China and Russia - and that the FBI was acknowledging that they knew she had deleted using Bleach Bit approximately 30K emails.

Trump said, "You (Hillary Clinton) get a subpoena, and after getting the subpoena you delete 33,000 emails."

Clinton’s staff received a subpoena for Benghazi-related emails March 4. An employee managing her server deleted 33,000 of Clinton’s emails three weeks later.

The FBI found no evidence that the emails were deleted deliberately to avoid the subpoena or other requests. Clinton’s team requested for the emails to be deleted months before the subpoena came. They also argued that all the emails that would be relevant to the subpoena had already been turned over to the State Department. - according to strongly left biased Politifact.

Now, it's odd that they can claim that no one was intentionally deleting emails they needed to keep when StoneTear asked for advice on how to override safeguards built into Exchange to prevent exactly what they achieved in 2014 - to be specific, at 8:29 PM UTC on July 24, 2014.

So he makes a joke about Russia sharing information that we assume they already have - hence the numerous stories the week prior - and you lot turn around and say "he was asking them to hack."

They cancelled SXSW then turned around and literally that evening posted THIS. Do you see anything wrong there?

Polls are telling the DNC they have a massive uphill battle come November and they have in-fighting among their base for control of the party. They desperately need economic upheaval that they can blame on the current administration and could care less what they need to burn to get it. That's why you're seeing the types of reactions and media drumbeat this year.

Leftist communities on Reddit often implore the company to ban The_Donald. So far, Huffman has demurred. “There are arguments on both sides,” he said, “but, ultimately, my view is that their anger comes from feeling like they don’t have a voice, so it won’t solve anything if I take away their voice.” He thought of something else to say, but decided against it. Then he took a swig of beer and said it anyway. “I’m confident that Reddit could sway elections,” he told me. “We wouldn’t do it, of course. And I don’t know how many times we could get away with it. But, if we really wanted to, I’m sure Reddit could have swayed at least this election, this once.” That’s a terrifying thought. It’s also almost certainly true. Source

Guess Steve and Jessica decided it's time to sway one.

They can't even provide evidence of the comments they claim were in violation and the moderation log shows that out of 700K users, with literally more than 100K comments and posts per day, the admins found 11 in the past 40 days that were downvoted but not moderated.

Jessica Ashooh is currently the Director of Policy, Reddit, Inc. She's got a very interesting background/resume that can be found with a quick search.

Well, shortly before taking her position at Reddit HQ, she was on Al Jezeera et. al. calling for the US to arm anti-Russian/Syrian forces as part of her gig as Deputy Director, Middle East Strategy Task Force for The Atlantic Group. She reported directly to co-chairs, Madeleine Albright (Clinton Sec. of State 1997-2001) and Stephen Hadley (W. Bush Nat. Security Advisor 2005-2009).

Dig a bit into The Atlantic Group and you find some interesting money behind it:

Before working directly for Soros, she spent 4 years as a Senior Analyst for the United Arab Emirates Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The year and half before that she was employed as a "Subject Matter Expert" for Eurasia Group - specifically on the subjects of Iraq, Lebanon, and Iran.

She spent 6 months prior to that working as a Consultant for Dunia Frotier Consultants in Erbil, Iraq - advising the Kurdistan Regional Government.

She's also a Board member of No One Left Behind: http://nooneleft.org/ A veteran-led charity focused on securing visas for and resettling Iraqi and Afghani combat interpreters who served with US forces - an admirable position to hold, but odd in the mix.

Isn't it kind of odd that someone with that kind of resume ends up policing funny cat pics and brownie recipes being posted on Reddit?

there's no apparent reason other than the prosecutor recused themself because they knew the Smullets

Foxx recused herself because she had been texting Smollett, his family and friends. (But we found out today that she didn't actually recuse herself, just like Loretta Lynch claimed to recuse herself in the "Clinton Matter" but didn't.)

Foxx tried to convince Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson to turn Smollett’s case over to the FBI — after Tina Tchen asked her because his "family was concerned about him."

“Spoke to the Superintendent Johnson,” Foxx emailed Tchen the same day. “I convinced him to Reach out to FBI to ask that they take over the investigation. He is reaching out now and will get to me shortly.”

The same day, Foxx texted with Smollett’s relative, whose name was blacked out in the released copies.

“Spoke to the superintendent earlier, he made the ask,” Foxx wrote. “Trying to figure out logistics. I’ll keep you posted.”

“Omg this would be a huge victory,” the family member replied.

“I make no guarantees, but I’m trying,” Foxx wrote back.

Because of this Foxx recused herself.

But here we are a few days later, with Foxx's office doing something many Defense lawyers are shocked by.

I'm sorry that you are delusional. I away any of the 400+ investigators involved in compiling the report to come forward and state their findings were misrepresented.

By the way, 1/3 of the summary is Barr formally acknowledging receipt as required by law, and informing Congress, as required by law, that he will be providing them the redacted report per the requirements of rule 6 as quickly as possible with the help of the DAG and OSC.

Or, that, as the law requires, information regarding grand jury testimony and proceedings cannot be released, even to the highest security clearance holding members of Congress without an order from a Judge.

Grand Jury proceedings give the defendant/suspect nearly zero legal protections and zero opportunity to mount a defense. Hence the reason ONLY the lawyers involved in a Grand Jury proceeding and the members of the Jury are allowed to be given the details unless it leads to a conviction of a crime.

Hence the reason that it would literally be a serious crime for Barr or any other member of the DOJ to share that information even with the House Intel Committee unless ordered by a Court to do so, and in that case, the Court would not allow the DOJ to be the petitioner requesting to do so.

They are talking about the joke:

“I will tell you this, Russia: If you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing, I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press."

That was made on July 27, 2016 after the first release of Wikileaks emails on July 22, 2016 had dominated the news cycle for a solid week.

trump is on tape ordering Russia to help him

You might want to check your timeline.

The first Podesta Emails on Wikileaks were published the evening of October 7, 2016, the contents of the leak go through March 2016. The first DNC email leaks were published on July 22, 2016.

The comment:

“I will tell you this, Russia: If you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing, I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press."

Was made on July 27, 2016 - five days after the DNC emails became the biggest political story in the US and had led the coverage of every newscast for a week.

In the summer of 2014, lawyers from the State Department noticed a number of emails from Clinton's personal account, while reviewing documents requested by the House Select Committee on Benghazi. A request by the State Department for additional emails led to negotiations with her lawyers and advisors. In October, the State Department sent letters to Clinton and all previous Secretaries of State back to Madeleine Albright requesting emails and documents related to their work while in office. On December 5, 2014, Clinton lawyers delivered 12 file boxes filled with printed paper containing more than 30,000 emails. Clinton withheld almost 32,000 emails deemed to be of a personal nature. Datto, Inc., which provided data backup service for Clinton's email, agreed to give the FBI the hardware that stored the backups.

As of May 2016, no answer had been provided to the public as to whether 31,000 emails deleted by Hillary Clinton as personal have been or could be recovered.

A March 2, 2015 New York Times article broke the story that the Benghazi panel had discovered that Clinton exclusively used her own private email server rather than a government-issued one throughout her time as Secretary of State, and that her aides took no action to preserve emails sent or received from her personal accounts as required by law. At that point, Clinton announced that she had asked the State Department to release her emails. Some in the media labeled the controversy "emailgate." - Source

So, do tell us, how the fuck did the hacks happen AFTER the comment, since you just claimed that it was an instruction that was LATER carried out. The leaked emails all pre-date the comment, and the 30,000 emails - the ones that he actually commented about, still are missing.
