Oh hey, The Guardian British English newspaper thingie, do you have a scoop you’d like to bury in a really long article? You do???? TELL US IT!
One source suggested the official investigation was making progress. “They now have specific concrete and corroborative evidence of collusion,” the source said. “This is between people in the Trump campaign and agents of [Russian] influence relating to the use of hacked material.”
Neat! Of course, we do not know who “one source” is, but it’s interesting to learn this, since Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA), the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, has suggested he knows of evidence that’s MORE than circumstantial, and also other Democrats on that committee are dropping little bombs about how people under investigation are going to end up in jail.
Oh wait, what’s this? Donald Trump did a big bomb in Afghanistan? Huh. Well, we’re sure he had a good reason.
ANYWAY, back to how the president and his pals are under multiple investigations for possibly colluding with Russia to steal the White House! The article in The Guardian is more bigly about how all the allies of America have apparently been warning U.S. American intelligence about evidence of collusion between Trumpland and Russia SINCE ALL THE WAY BACK IN 2015:
GCHQ first became aware in late 2015 of suspicious “interactions” between figures connected to Trump and known or suspected Russian agents, a source close to UK intelligence said. This intelligence was passed to the US as part of a routine exchange of information, they added.
Over the next six months, until summer 2016, a number of western agencies shared further information on contacts between Trump’s inner circle and Russians, sources said.
The European countries that passed on electronic intelligence – known as sigint – included Germany, Estonia and Poland. Australia, a member of the “Five Eyes” spying alliance that also includes the US, UK, Canada and New Zealand, also relayed material, one source said.
And also maybe the Dutches and the Frenches found shit too, according to The Guardian. That is a lot of countries trying to have our back and Make America Great Again!
Recall that GCHQ is the British agency Trump and Sean Spicer lied about, saying it put illegal “wire tapps” in Team Trump’s b-hole for Obama. The Guardian clarifies, though, that none of the stuff all our allies found came from any kind of targeted thing against Trump ‘n’ Pals, but rather was just crap they picked up in “routine surveillance of Russian intelligence assets,” all of whom are obviously BFFs with Trump ‘n’ Pals. Turns out all these agencies started all kind of seeing the same stuff, and it made them like “Knock knock America! Who’s there? Russia and Donald Trump working together to hack your election!” And America was like “Oh, we should get around to looking into that eventually!”
The Guardian‘s source says the reason all our allies were finding this shit and American intelligence wasn’t is due to how we have strict laws in America against spying on our own people, because American citizens have conniptions about being spied on:
“It looks like the [US] agencies were asleep,” the source added. “They [the European agencies] were saying: ‘There are contacts going on between people close to Mr Trump and people we believe are Russian intelligence agents. You should be wary of this.’
“The message was: ‘Watch out. There’s something not right here.’”
Indeed. There’s a lot that’s not right here. Maybe if we had “unmasked” some more “U.S. Persons” in our intelligence gathering, we could have stopped this shit in its tracks.
Wait, what’s this? The boom boom Trump did to Afghanistan is the biggest bomb we have that isn’t a nuke? Golly, Trump, are your hands even big enough to activate a bomb like that? Oh well, back to how there are probably Russian spies in the White House.
Also too, Richard Dearlove, the former head of MI6, did an interview with Prospect magazine, and he says Trump probably owes Russia a million shitloads of money, because nobody else would do business with him after the financial crash. Whoa if true, and it’s probably true!
Anyway, we hope “unnamed source” is correct and our FBIs and CIAs and other investigative committees really do have the goods, because it’s only a matter of time before President Thin-Skin gets so addicted to bombing shit in exchange for flattery from the media that he graduates to nukes.
