Russia’s most beautiful intelligence asset, allegedly.

Let’s be clear about one thing right now. Senator Dianne Feinstein is a hero and a fucking boss for releasing that giant Fusion GPS transcript, which we spent six hours reading and blogging on Tuesday. Is she kinda too conservative for a lib state like California? SHE IS. Is she also MURDERING HER REPUBLICAN COLLEAGUES, WITH MURDER? That too!

On MSNBC Tuesday night, Lawrence O’Donnell chuckled as he remembered his time working in Congress, saying Feinstein is the LAST senator you’d expect to do something so bold. Rachel Maddow reported that RUMOR HAS IT Feinstein reached her “fuck you” point after Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and craven Trump suck-up Lindsey Graham made the first criminal referral of the entire Russia investigation, without consulting her, and it was to INVESTIGATE CHRISTOPHER STEELE, the nice spy who uncovered a lot of the Trump-Russia conspiracy and was so worried about the national security implications of what he found that he, a Brit, insisted on going to the American FBI to say “PIP PIP ACHTUNG!” or however they say “Danger!” in England. To be clear, Chris Steele The British Spy is a greater goddamn American patriot than Grassley or Graham or House Intel Committee chair Devin Nunes will ever fuckin’ be.

And what was that criminal referral about? This, presumably!

Other Republicans, meanwhile, have recently complained that British spy Christopher Steele, the author of a disputed Trump-Russia dossier who has also served as a source for the FBI’s Russia probe, had what they call inappropriate contacts with reporters during the 2016 election.

“I don’t think an informant for the FBI should be taking the product and shopping it around to journalists throughout the world,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

Well we don’t think you should do that with your face, Senator, but that hardly means we get to refer it for charges to the Department of Justice.

President Bathrobe Executive Time is SO MAD BRO:

What does all that mean? God fucking knows, but it probably took him an hour to come up with “Sneaky Dianne,” so he had to get some mileage out of it. (It WAS pretty sneaky though, considering how Feinstein’s office hit “publish” the same second she was sitting across from Trump in the White House getting him to endorse a DACA bill. LOL Sneaky Dianne!)

Having read the full transcript it’s easy to see why Grassley (who is also SO MAD) and Graham and Trump and all the rest of ’em didn’t want this released. They’ve been making up conspiracies about Fusion GPS and the inception of the spy memos that became known as THE DOSSIER, chief among them that the dossier was the only reason the FBI even began an investigation into the Trump campaign’s collaboration with Russia. That had been disproven handily before Feinstein released this transcript, partially because the founders of Fusion GPS debunked it in the New York Times last week. But in order for that conspiracy theory to work, they had to discredit the dossier itself, and to do that, they concocted an even bigger conspiracy theory, one they’ve been weaving for months, that somehow Fusion GPS is a Russian agent, and that it rustled up the “Trump Russia collusion hoax” all by itself.

This conspiracy theory, in general, is based on the following things, which are actually facts:

  • Fusion GPS, a private intelligence firm, was hired by American law firm BakerHostetler to work on a case representing a Russian company, Prevezon Holdings Ltd. Also working on that case were Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya and her Russian-American spy/lobbyist pal Rinat Akhmetshin, both of whom have worked in America for the repeal of the Magnitsky Act and other Russian sanctions, and also both of whom attended a meeting in Trump Tower with Dumbfuck Junior, promising sweet Hillary dirt in exchange for help getting the sanctions lifted.
  • Fusion GPS, a private intelligence firm, was also hired, first by the conservative Washington Free Beacon during the GOP primary, and later by Marc Elias (and his law firm Perkins Cole), an attorney with ties to the Hillary Clinton campaign, to do oppo research on Trump.
  • Somewhere around the time Fusion GPS switched from working for the Washington Free Beacon and Elias started writing the checks, it contracted with Steele to look deeper into Trump’s business ties with Russia.

As we’ve explained multiple times, the Prevezon work and the Trump oppo research were two different projects for two different clients, which should be easy to understand if you’ve ever seen TWO CARS BEING WORKED ON AT THE SAME TIME at a Jiffy Lube. TWO. CLIENTS.

But the GOP wants us to think all of these things are part of one big conspiracy soup and that Fusion GPS, in being paid by BakerHostetler, which was being paid by the Russian company Prevezon, was WORKING FOR THE RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT AND FOR HILLARY CLINTON to do the DODGY DOSSIER, for HILLARY AND RUSSIA.

It’s a loopy-ass conspiracy theory that assumes nobody in the world knows how client relationships work, but it gives Sean Hannity something to bang his poop jowls together about every night, while congressmen like Louie Gohmert make up charts that “connect the dots” without giving any details, similar to how Republicans STILL yell things like “BENGHAZI! VINCE FOSTER! FILEGATE!” about Hillary Clinton. If you ask them to explain one damn iota of what they’re mouth-shitting about, they just yell more mouth-shits. It’s kiiiiiinda been the GOP playbook for decades.

In reading the Fusion GPS transcript, you can see the hook they’re hanging this conspiracy theory on. GOP investigators asked Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson OVER and OVER and OVER again about how well he knows Rinat Akhmetshin, who worked on the Prevezon case, attempting to trick him into “admitting” Akhmetshin had something to do with the firm’s separate work with Christopher Steele. Barring that, did Chris Steele work on the Prevezon case? Did Natalia Veselnitskaya help write the dossier? Was Hillary Clinton home THE WHOLE NIGHT of the Benghazi attacks?!?!?!?!?!

A few screenshots from the transcript:

Here’s one where the GOP investigator couldn’t seem to keep a straight face as he was trying to do the GOTCHA! that Chuck Grassley obviously imagined would prove Fusion GPS is a tool of the Russians:

And, because, according to the squirrel brains of wingnuts like Grassley and Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, the FBI had to have OBVIOUSLY been part of the conspiracy, we had questions like this:

And over and over and over again, Glenn Simpson, with what we imagine had to be the most “WTF” look in his eyes, explained that “WHAT FUCKING PART OF WE ARE A PRIVATE INTELLIGENCE FIRM WITH MULTIPLE CLIENTS AND THESE ARE TWO TOTALLY SEPARATE THINGS DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND?”

But juuuuuuuuust to be sure:

GOP investigators were particularly fixated on how the Prevezon case seemed to be wrapping up around the same week in June 2016 as the Trump Tower Donald Trump Jr. Russian meeting, which proves … SQUIRREL! UNDERPANTS GNOMES! HILLARY COLLUSION! (Of course, it proves diddly shit about Fusion GPS and its separate work with Chris Steele. Easy to see that when you can read the transcript, ain’t it?)

Over and over, Simpson calmly responded with the facts, explaining in detail who Fusion GPS is, what it does, how it works, and, by extension, how insane these GOP attacks really are.

He also explained multiple times how unimpeachable Chris Steele’s reputation is:

And he said several times how worried Steele was, based on what he had learned, about the national security of America, a concern Chuck Grassley, his president and his colleagues don’t seem to share:

Sunlight changes things, doesn’t it?

And yes, Chuck Grassley, we see why you didn’t want this transcript out!

Now, will the horseshit attacks on Fusion GPS, Steele and the dossier go away? Fuck no, have you ever gone swimming in the syphilitic swamp stew that is the typical GOP congressman’s brain? Wear floaties or you’ll drown:

But now Americans know with 100% certainty — or at least those Americans capable of reading and/or willing to do so, which likely excludes the president — that the Congressional GOP is acting as little more than an obstruction of justice organ for Donald Trump. It’s laid bare, and in front of everybody’s faces. How far will they go to protect the pussgrabber in the Oval Office? How willing are they to subjugate American national security and sovereignty to a hostile nation in order to protect their own power?

This is how far they’ve gone so far. We imagine it will get much, much worse.

Good morning, GOP. We see you.

      • ariel_gee_398

        But if they want to keep their money and get even more – and I think there is almost no limit to their greed, their desire is to shrink the share of wealth held by normal people to zero – they need to keep Republicans in power. They need to keep some veneer of legitimacy around themselves and the party, and the only way they can do that is to go all in on the ratfucking and light treason and hope it works.

      The Sneaky Dianne – A Cocktail
      1 Oz Gin

      Shake over ice, and fill to rim of tall glass with club soda.

    Interesting story on NBC news last night. Rich Russians are coming to US to have anchor babies. Apparently, there is a huge business in this in Miami Fl.

          More than ironic, since the slavs are probably more caucasian than the Germans.

        • It is really ironic how Eastern Europe is now the world centre of fascism, for precisely that reason. I think it comes from two sources:

          i) “Commies hated Nazis, we hated Commies, therefore Nazis must be cool”
          ii) “Say what you like about Hitler but at least he solved the Jewish problem in Poland”

      • miss_grundy

        He has been making trips to Russia since the late 1980s. He will do anything to make money. If committing treason leads to him making money, he will choose committing treason. And I hope Mr. Mueller nabs him for that, obstruction of justice and anything else that will see him go to prison for the rest of his natural life. Of course, if it were up to me for committing treason he should be scheduled for a date with Old Sparky in Sing Sing prison.

      Oleg Erovinkin, a former general in the KGB and its modern successor the FSB, was found dead in the back of his car in Moscow on December 26, 2016.

      According to the Kremlin, his death was suicide because he was dispondent over having heart problems.

      He was shot in the back of the head .. twice.

      Putin doesn’t even try to make this crap believable.

      • Steely_Fan

        Yeah, that first shot only required that he be a contortionist. But that second one, hoo boy. That’s some next-level self-destructiveness.

        • stablegeniusahughes798

          Hey, Kurt Cobain shot himself up with many times the lethal dose of heroin, and still managed to shoot himself in the mouth.

          • Steely_Fan

            Yeah, I guess he was pretty determined, also too. :(

          • Natalie Au Natural Hedonist

            And Courtney fucked the coroner, just to be sure it was a “suicide.”

          • stablegeniusahughes798

            Yep, it never made sense to me. If you shoot up 5x the lethal amount of heroin, you are dead when the plunger hits lethal dose one. Instantly.

          • Natalie Au Natural Hedonist

            The rock and Roll Book of the dead says the shotgun had no identifiable fingerprints on it either. And the “suicide note” wasn’t entirely written in his hand. The police officer that investigated also had a relationship with Cortney. Most of them are dead now, they really should reopen the case.

          • stablegeniusahughes798

            I think they should, too. Being able to do those two things (OD with a 5x lethal dose of heroin and shoot yourself)are well nigh impossible.

          • Natalie Au Natural Hedonist

            The coroner that blocked the reopening of the case is dead he died in a base jumping accident seven years later. And the cop that investigated the case used Courtney as a narc and was arrested himself in 1999 for conspiracy to steal from the dept. He was forcibly retired.

          • stablegeniusahughes798

            It just gets curiouser and curiouser. I always felt he had “help,” because he was getting ready to divorce Courtney, and I think she dropped a dime on him.

          • Natalie Au Natural Hedonist

            Yep, Even her dad said she had him killed. He had turned down a multi-million dollar contract to tour and was divorcing her and he had a pre-nup. There was even a guy who claimed she had hired him to kill Kurt, who wound up in pieces on the train tracks.

        • Petunia Cat

          Oh please. Make a finger gun and try shooting yourself in the back of the head with it. It’s easy. If a person couldn’t do that they wouldn’t be able to comb their hair. Obviously saying he shot himself is a lie. But let’s be clear that you don’t need to be a contortionist to touch the back of your head.

    i had always in the past considered Republicans to be very calculating in their agenda, if a thing would cost them too much, be money or political capital, or whatever, they would cut their losses and move onto the next thing.

    it’s like what in the fuck does Donald have over them? they seem to waste more and more effort trying to protect this thin-skinned whiny man-baby who likely committed treason…sure sure impeaching him or what-not would leave a black mark on the GOP, cuz, uh, you dumbfucks picked this guy, but it will be nothing compared to the black mark you GOP’ers will get when this done and over.

    or maybe those cold calculating Republicans are long gone and what we have left-over are the dumbfucking morons who hate govt trying to run said govt (i.e. look up tea party dumbfucks)

      It could be a manifestation of the Iron Law of Institutions. The party, having achieved a high level of power within the institution that is their country, is concerned more with preserving their power within the country than with maintaining the country’s standing within the world at large.

      edit to add: The quest to preserve one’s power does not necessarily lead to decisions or behaviors that accomplish that goal long term.

    • I think what we have left over are sleestaks

    • teele

      I think it is more a question of “what does Putin have over them?” I have a congressman who’s been a reliable GOP backbencher for 30 years, an inheritor who hasn’t done a goddamn thing of any consequence for 64 years. Before the election, he was able to express his unhappiness with Trump. After the election, he seemed to be responding to his outraged constituents demands that he stand up for them on healthcare. Just before the House vote on healthcare last year, he and several other GOP holdouts were escorted into Trump’s office; when they came out, they were changed men. I firmly believe that my “representative” was presented with kompromat that changed his mind about his vote. I have mulled the possibility of bribery, but while he’s no billionaire, my congressman has plenty ameros. It’s possible he was simply threatened with a tough primary, but the dude is approaching retirement age, has spent half his life staying under the radar in the House, and could easily give it all up — unless he was threatened with a scandal. Certainly, it’s easy to guess what Graham is afraid of, and it seem like a large percentage of Republicans are unable to control their darker impulses. Maybe it’s just the Kooks and Mercenaries pulling the strings here, but I think part of the reason things are so out of control now is that a third, offshore party is involved now, probably for the foreseeable future. It’s no longer a game of “scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours,” it’s more of a threat that “you’ll scratch my back or you’ll die.”

    1. who’s more loyal and patriotic to america, donald jr. or chris steele? or how about george papadopoulos or the aussie ambassador?
    2. what would you do if a hostile foreign power offered to help you win this race?

    if the republican says donald jr. is more loyal, then you can assume what he would really do in scenario #2. if he says donald jr. might not be patriotic enough, he’ll earn himself a new nickname from Twitler

      Some of us hope to NEVER see that thank you.

        I agree but a video of two scoops cavorting with Russian pee hookers would be the silver bullet to his show, even zombie could not survive that.

    Miss Lindsay: “I don’t think an informant for the FBI should be taking the product and shopping it around to journalists throughout the world.”

    But, do you think a former MI6 spy hired to look into Trump’s Russia ties, who discovered Trump was blackmailable, SHOULD have brought it to the FBI? Because that’s what happened, not the decepti-salad you spewed on Meet the Press.

    • HazooToo

      But it doesn’t sound as innocent and persecuted if he says no to thaaaaat!

        Talk about fake news! Steele only informed the FBI after he found out bad shit important to US national security and a far as I know, received no compensation from the FBI, only from GPS who hired him. The derp, it burns….

  • Unconscience

    grassley and graham are not trying to protect trump, they HATE trump, they are trying to protect the RNC itself.

    mueller is getting close to the RNC being implicated in using russian data to target voters.

    • Michael Lindsay

      If “protecting the RNC” and “protecting the money laundering, rock-stupid, racist vagina groping orange mutant and his clan of treasonous pit vipers” amount to doing the same thing then…it’s doing the same thing innit?

      • HooverVilles

        I think you are right. I think Trump has taken over most of the GOP.

        • Brian O’Connell

          There are two ways this can go:

          First, Russia hacked the RNC server, we know this because they announced it in October 2016, but “It was an old server nobody’s used in years, so it was no big deal (it is, that means there’s a ton of dirt they haven’t been able to purge).”. They’re not going after Trump because they know if those emails get out, that they can kiss their careers goodbye.

          Second, the FAA keeps itineraries for all flights in and out of the country, if Trump was sneaking around in Russia, or any of his associates, then the FAA has records of those trips. And they hold onto those for years for the DHS. Knowing what an idiot Trump is, chances are he’ll try to disband the FAA, and that’s where they’ll tip their hands.

    “Is she kinda too conservative for a lib state like California?”

    Maybe.

    But bear in mind that not everyone in California is a weed-smoking, tie-dye-sporting old hippie. And, as the Schmuck in Chief has never figured out, pols are supposed to represent ALL their constituents, once in a while.

    “(It WAS pretty sneaky though, considering how Feinstein’s office hit ‘publish’ the same second she was sitting across from Trump in the White House getting him to endorse a DACA bill. LOL Sneaky Dianne!)”

    So who the fuck cares if she sometimes acts like a conservative?

    I regret some of the senator’s decisions and stances, and I truly wish she hadn’t married a rich twit. But DiFi is playing the long game, and she’s playing it well. Speaking as a life-long left-wing Dem, I’m proud of Sneaky Di.

  • The most exasperating take I’ve been seeing is that this transcript — which Republicans desperately didn’t want released, and are mightily pissed about it being released — totally corroborates their conspiracy theories.

    Good job Evan. Sorry still drunk.

  • The Very Stable Librarian

    I transgressed last night by not offering a hat tip to Dianne Feinstein for being a bad ass in releasing that transcript. That took guts. I haven’t agreed with her on issues over the years, but I’m happy to say about this we can wholeheartedly agree. The transcript has blown a hole in the Great GOP Conspiracy to Fuck the People.

    • The Rick

      I hope she didn’t fuck up the investigation. I don’t think she did because unclassified isn’t a leak but it pissed off enough people.

      • The Very Stable Librarian

        I don’t think so either. She pissed off the people that want the charade to keep on playing.

    • Rickyphoo

      Thank you! Very interesting and more than a little frightening that the GOP is in such an asscovering mode that they are willing to commit treason to protect the idiot in the WH.

  • The Rick

    1) impossible to leak unclassified
    2) denied one question in a 300 page transcript because it was classified (could cause harm)
    3) proves Steele did the right thing and went to the FBI when he found evidence of a crime.

    Morons will cite these as conspiracy theory facts but one thing I can’t disagree with is if indicted Trump will probably never see a fair trial. When everyone knows everything, how do you build an uninformed jury?

    Not my opinion just my question.

    • H0mer0

    • Sakonyachen

      It’s easy to believe it when they gerrymandered the votes of said Democrats to mean nothing. Most of Texas’ population is in cities, and yet they can’t elect a Democrat with a Lone Star tattoo on their forehead, riding a bull that wears a ten gallon hat.

  • Celtic_Gnome

    If I had doubts before, I’m convinced now that the entire Republican Party has Russian kompromat hanging over its collective head. Donald Trump has done nothing his entire life, let alone since becoming President, to engender this level of loyalty in career politicians like this.

    Even they can’t believe it’s a smart move to alienate everyone in the country for the sake of that 33-35% Base.

    • Phoenixdoglover

      The prevailing theory being the kompromat is not of the “pee tapes” variety, but more along the lines of Russian money being laundered and funneled into various GOP war chests. Strictly illegal, this foreign money thing.

      • This right here. There have been multiple ties to Russian Oligarchs/ peopled tied there with to and on, dumping cash into GOP PACs now.

        You mean the GOP Congresscockroaches will take dirty rubles over clean Ameros? The heck you say, I’m vexed, sorely vexed, to hear such talk!

      • bardgal

        Actually….. there is chatter of multiple copies of a tape of Tiny Hands raping/worse a pre-pubescent trafficked girl/twins (seriously who knows – the Internet is one big game of OPERATOR.) But whatever kompromat Putin has on the lot of them, it’s BAD ENOUGH to blackmail them into treason… along with DECADES of International Money Laundering. Add to that Ryan and McConnell taking illegal Russian oligarch money into the GOP campaign coffers, and distributing it all the way down the ticket, making every single one of them complicit. It’s why every single day there’s another low-level GOP rep you’ve never heard of, penning an OpEd attempting to discredit Mueller & the FBI.

        I still believe no way Putin didn’t hack the entire election – it was a WIN/WIN for both him & the GOP: Putin gets Full GOP Control and A IDIOT POTUS who will literally sign anything they put in front of him. While the GOP get to attempt to keep themselves out of prison because they control EVERYTHING.

        The Electoral College is the easiest thing to manipulate, making it easy to steal an election since they only need to hack the one National Race – and by flipping only two or three swing states – you can choose the POTUS. The EC is so broken, that if only a single person from each of the current 33 red states bothered to vote, and voted GOP, those 33 votes would override the population of Earth if it lived in the other 17.

        The GOP have only won the popular vote twice in 3 decades (1988/2004.)

        Hacking state races is also easy, as long as they’re attached to the internet via voting machines (easily hackable – there are a metric shit tonne of the videos on youtube ffs….) and flippable tabulation servers.

        We need completely ANALOG elections with hand-counted paper ballots, and calling in vote totals, instead of transmitting anything electronically. If Canada can do it, we can.

    • Rooster Cogburn105

      They’re chained together as the ship continues to take in water, they’re doomed and they know it. Anytime now, Vlad could let the Kompromat loose on the net and they drown.

      Well, the intel community said with a high likelihoold both the RNC AND the DNC servers were hack and compromised. So what, pray tell, has the 400 pound guy sitting in his basement (named RUSSIA) been doing with all of that juicy data? The world wonders…
