    Alan Dershowitz was introduced to Jeffrey Epstein by his, Trump’s, Kissinger’s and Clinton’s friend Lynn Forester (these days “lady” De Rothschild).
    Jeffrey Epstein is of course the well-connected paedophile and (also) a long-time friend of Trump: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthr...=1#post6356329

    Here's a thread where he specifically went after Trump supporters.

    Why not go after both?

    From what I've read so far, I'm starting to think the list of who hasn't colluded with the Russians or Ukrainians is shorter.
    Isn't history funny? Seems phil is now a 'Trumphumper' only a few months later.

    Trial Manafort started

    Yesterday, 31 July, the “first” trial of special cover-up artist Robert Mueller has started.

    Paul Manafort, Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, earned more than $60 million from 2006 to 2015 as a political consultant for former President Viktor Yanukovych’s Party of Regions and its Opposition Bloc successor in the Ukraine.
    Mueller has accused Manafort (in the first trial) of:
    1) Laundering $30 million through a web of offshore accounts into the US to evade taxes, especially through foreign accounts located in Cyprus;
    2) Defraud several US banks to get more than $20 million in loans.

    It is expected that the government’s star witness will be Rick Gates, who worked with Manafort for Ukraine and on the Trump campaign (even after Manafort resigned as campaign manager). Gates was charged alongside Manafort but he made a deal with Mueller.
    The only other “big name” on the witness list is Tad Devine, who’s probably best known for advising on Bernie Sanders’s presidential campaign. Before that Devine had worked with Manafort for the Ukraine.

    Mueller had indicted Manafort in September 2017 for his lobbying for the Ukraine (this will be the “second” trial). The charges include not registering as a foreign agent in his Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA) statements.

    The first (Virginia) trial is expected to last about 3 weeks and will be followed by the second (of another 3 weeks).
    Manafort has pleaded not guilty.

    None of the charges brought against Manafort have anything to do with Russia interfering in the US presidential election (all of the charges date from before he worked on Trump’s campaign): https://www.vox.com/2018/7/31/175908...r-trump-russia

    Mueller has cut the charges up in 2 trials to confuse the public. It would be “easier” to judge Manafort if all the charges would be evaluated in one trial…

    Of course "Q" is great at cryptic writings, but not in finding "evidence" (Miles Mathis is even worse)...

    Here’s the 30 pages indictment of February (the first trial, fraud and tax evasion): https://www.courtlistener.com/recap/...106.14.0_4.pdf

    Here’s the 31 pages indictment of October 2017 (the second trial, including not registering as a foreign agent): https://www.courtlistener.com/recap/...90597.13.0.pdf

    I don’t think I exaggerate that I found more interesting information in a single day searching the internet. Some of the interesting information Robert Mueller “forgot”:
    - The Russian Alfa Bank that was communicating with the Trump Organization and the Spectrum Health of DeVos family during the election: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthr...=1#post6620071

    - The British SCL Group and its Cambridge Analytica subsidiary and its connections to major Trump funder, Robert Mercer: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthr...=1#post6634728

    - Wilbur Ross, who controlled the Bank of Cyprus, which was used to funnel money to Manafort.
    - Oleg Deripaska, for a time Manafort’s most important client, who’s close to Vladimir Putin and even closer to Ivanka’s one-time boyfriend Nat Rothschild.
    - That from 2012 to 2014 Mercury (of Manafort and Gates) and the Podesta Group were jointly working for the Ukraine.

    Ron Paul is right. At a certain point, the truth is irrelevant in the sheep's eyes.

    “Force the normies into taking sides. At the moment they are just like "meh, I am minding my own business" retreating culturally into their private bubbles and "safe-spaces" since they don't understand what is going on. When the actual "us vs them" starts, they will be forced to fight or they'll die.” - Anonymous Poster

    Bronfman’s and Oliver North’s Saudi partner in crime, Adnan Khashoggi, has been involved in a bunch of scandals. There are stories about: Iran-Contra, money laundering for Ferdinand Marcos and 9/11.

    Paul Manafort has also been in business with Marcos:
    Quote Originally Posted by Firestarter

    There is an even closer connection between Manafort and Khashoggi through his representative in Spain - Abdul Rahman Al Assir from Lebanon. Al Assir was once brother-in-law of Adnan Khashoggi. He arranged big weapons sales to African armies.
    The London-based Sourakia once wrote:
    The miracle of Al Assir is that he will have lunch with Don Juan Carlos [king of Spain], dinner with Hassan II [king of Morocco], and breakfast the next day with Felipe González [prime minister of Spain].
    In the late 1980s, Manafort became friends with Al Assir. In 1989, Manafort took Al Assir as his guest to George H.W. Bush’s inauguration.
    In the ’90s, Manafort and Al Assir were putting together big deals. Including an arms sale from France to Pakistan, that involved bribes and kickbacks to high-level officials in both countries. Manafort and Al Assir were not only business partners but even “very brotherly”. Manafort became the godfather of Al Assir’s child. They went on a holiday together near Cannes.

    In 2003, Manafort’s partner Rick Davis was invited to a meeting in Manhattan with Nathaniel “Nat” Philip Victor James Rothschild, heir apparent to the Rothschild trillions: https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine...ustler/550925/

    Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort has been found guilty on 8 fraud charges: 5 counts of tax fraud, 2 of bank fraud and 1 of failure to report a foreign bank account. He could be sentenced to decades in prison. The jury could not reach a consensus on 10 of the total of 18 charges.
    Former Manafort protégé Rick Gates testified that Manafort asked him to falsify banking and tax records and that he knowingly submitted those records.
    Manafort could yet avoid prison, if Judge Ellis determined that the evidence against Manafort is insufficient, despite the jury verdict. Manafort could also be pardoned by President Trump.

    The Virginia trial had nothing to do with the Trump campaign or Manafort’s contacts with Russia.
    In September in Washington DC Manafort will go to trial on charges of conspiracy to launder tens of millions of dollars, failing to register as a foreign agent and lying.
    Manafort’s conviction brought the tally of former Trump advisers who have pleaded or found guilty of crimes in the Mueller cover-up to 4. A California man and a London-based lawyer have also pleaded guilty.

    Trump responded:
    This has nothing to do with Russian collusion. These are witch hunts and it’s a disgrace ... It had nothing to do with Russian collusion, we continue the witch hunt.
    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...-federal-court


    I think that the Guardian “forgot” Michael Flynn (I think he's not from California...) and this also doesn’t include Michael Cohen...


    On Tuesday, former long-time Trump attorney Michael Cohen suddenly pleaded guilty to 8 counts — Cohen pleaded guilty to 5 counts of tax evasion; 1 count of making false statements to a financial institution; 1 of wilfully causing an unlawful corporation contribution; and 1 count of making an excessive campaign contribution at the request of a candidate.
    The “excessive campaign contribution” involves paying $280,000 to silence 2 women, Stephanie Clifford (Stormy Daniels) and Playboy bunny Karen McDougal, at the request of Donald Trump.

    Cohen was part of Mr Trump's inner circle for more than a decade; he was his personal lawyer at the Trump Organisation and continued to advise President Donald after the election.
    Cohen's sentencing is scheduled for 12 December; he is expected to be sentenced to between 46 and 63 months in prison.
    Federal prosecutors claim that Cohen also concealed more than $4 million from the IRS (that he can keep?): https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/201...fraud-charges/

    Sam Patten, Cambridge Analytica, Kilimnik

    A couple of days ago, another associate of Paul Manafort, Sam Patten, has pleaded guilty to failing to register as a foreign agent for lobbying on behalf of a Ukrainian political party. It’s not quite clear if “forgetting” to register as a foreign agent is actually considered a “crime”...

    Patten worked with Manafort and Gates (when they were working with the Podesta Group?) on Ukrainian campaigns.
    Patten also suggested that the Trump Inaugural Committee improperly accepted funds from a Ukrainian oligarch. Patten admitted that he illegally helped the Ukrainian buy a ticket to Trump’s swearing-in through a straw-man donor.
    Patten has also worked for Cambridge Analytica (part of the British SCL Group) during the 2014 election cycle (I guess in the Ukraine).

    In 2015, Patten formed consulting firm Begemot Ventures International with Konstantin Kilimnik. Kilimnik has worked for Russian military intelligence GRU. Kilimnik also worked as a fixer for Manafort in Ukraine.
    Kilimnik has been indicted in absentia alongside Manafort on obstruction of justice charges: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...fara-violation

    In March 2007, when Manafort was forming an alliance with Dmytro Firtash, he founded the private equity fund Pericles Emerging Market Partners in the Cayman Islands. Paul Manafort ran the firm with political consultant Rick Davis and lobbyist Rick Gates.

    Konstantin Kilimnik was also involved in Pericles, along with Ukraine political consultant Philip Griffin and Party of Regions flack Alexander Balanutsa: https://www.kyivpost.com/article/con...ss-418137.html

    I guess that by now public has lost interest in “special” cover-up artist Robert Mueller, who in 16 months of “investigating” couldn’t even discover the ties of Wilbur Ross to Russian oligarchs or the connection between Manafort and FBI asset Oleg Deripaska…

    So it was announced that, after spending 3 months in jail, as part of a plea deal Paul Manafort pleaded guilty to 2 criminal charges, conspiring to: 1) defraud the US and 2) obstruct justice.
    Manafort signed a 17-page plea agreement including that he will assist prosecutors with “any and all” matters, inform them on “his participation in and knowledge of all criminal activities” and testify in other cases.
    Manafort also agreed to forfeit homes in Virginia and New York (including an apartment in Trump Tower) and the funds from several bank accounts.

    The earlier conviction of Manafort on 8 counts in Virginia and the other case will be dropped by Mueller.
    Mueller’s team indicated that Manafort could get a maximum of 10 years in prison.

    Trump’s lawyer, former New York Mayor, Rudy Giuliani, wrote on Thursday that the president’s team remained in “open communication” with Manafort as part of an agreement to share information: “There’s no fear that Paul Manafort would cooperate against the president because there’s nothing to cooperate about and we long ago evaluated him as an honorable man”: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthr...th-Prosecutors

    Are there any American “suspects” left that didn’t sign a plea deal?
    Will they sentence all arrested Russians to prison instead?

    Serial liar Robert Mueller has found a new way to give his “investigation” the attention it doesn’t deserve by taking the deal with pathological liar Paul Manafort off the table, because he has lied to the FBI “on a variety of subject matters".
    Is it surprising that pathological liar Manafort lied? Does Mueller keep these lies unspecified, so he can later come with a new press statement bringing our hopes up that he will finally have something interesting to reveal?

    Manafort's (lying) lawyers claim that he provided “truthful information”.
    Both sides now agree that there is no reason to delay sentencing (do we get the verdict in the first case, in which Manafort was already found guilty, or do we get the second trial first?): https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-46353111


    I regularly see stories with similar “keywords” as the posts I make (which buries them in the internet “search” results). I don’t think that any of the Trump, Infowars an FOX fans will see how ridiculous this story really is.
    Dan Bongino wrote a preposterous book that he was allowed to advertise at the David Horowitz Freedom Center last month and that “they” are all against Donald Trump. He says something like that we should all read the book because he actually has reference and we should read the footnotes (or something like that)...
    For more on David Horowitz’s connection to the Gatestone Institiute that’s associated with the SCL Group: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthr...=1#post6694624

    It's written right here in the Wall Street Journal, on April 17, 2007. Who's the author of this critical Wall Street Journal piece? Glen Simpson and Mary Jacobi, his wife. Glen Simpson, the purveyor of Fusion GPS. The article is called, How Lobbyists Help Ex-Soviets Woo Washington. Folks, I dare you to take a moment and read that piece, put it next to the dossier. It's the same thing. It's the same thing. It's the same story. It was written 11 years ago. Glen Simpson clearly had this information about Russian influence in Washington he wrote 10 years ago. Read the names in the article. Do you know who appears in this article? Paul Manafort, all of these players. So what likely happened after Plan A collapses is, they say listen, let's go to the FISA Court and do this legally, but we need evidence. We don't have evidence. Don't worry, Hillary Clinton's got a guy at Fusion GPS, says he's got a story to tell.
    (…)
    The names never stop coming up again. Ever. Oleg Deripaska connected to Vladimir Putin who's connected to Adam Waldman, a lobbyist who's emailing and texting Mark Warner, a democrat on the senate committee. Who's Waldman working for too? Christopher Steele, the guy working for Hillary. They're connected to the Russians. The people that show up at the Trump Tower meeting. Veselnitskaya with Don, Jr. and Rinat Akhmetshin. Veselnitskaya works for Fusion GPS on a separate case and Akhmetshin, the other guy, the Russian intel guy that shows up at the Trump Tower meeting, you know who his lawyer is? Edward Lieberman. You know who Lieberman's wife is? Evelyn Lieberman. Bill Clinton's old chief of staff. Read the book folks; it's all laid out for you. So, thanks for your time. I appreciate it. Thank you very much.
    https://www.realclearpolitics.com/vi...n_history.html

    If I understand Bongino, he calls the following Wall Street Journal article from April 2017, of the WSJ of Jared Kushner’s and Jacob Rothschild’s good friend Rupert Murdoch, a movie script that they (Robert Mueller) are imitating in “Russiagate”, but changed some names...
    The story’s main Russian is Nat Rothschild’s good friend Oleg Deripaska, with a nice supporting role for Dimytro Firtash: http://archive.is/bsiiE

    All of the following names - Oleg Deripaska, Adam Waldman, Mark Warner, Mueller – from the transcript of Bongino’s silly talk are in the following post: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthr...=1#post6647254
