Report: Lynch Tapped Manafort's Phone During Trump Jr. Meeting With Russian Lawyer

ZeroPointNow's picture

According to a tweet by former Massachusetts Trump campaign official James Brower and first reported by independent journalist and author Jack Posobiec, former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort's phone was tapped by former Attorney General Loretta Lynch during the now infamous meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya - who was let into the United States under "extraordinary circumstances" by Obama's DOJ, headed by Lynch.

The meeting included Donald Trump Jr., Manafort, Jared Kushner, Natalia Veselnitskaya, and Fusion GPS associate Rinat Akhmetshin - a Russian-American lobbyist who confirmed today that he was present during the June 2016 sit-down. 

The meeting was arranged by another Fusion GPS associate, Rob Goldstone - in what is looking more and more like a deep-state setup to justify FISA wiretapping warrants. Of note, Veselnitskaya is publicly anti-Trump.

Fusion GPS, the firm behind the discredited 35 page Trump-Russia 'dossier,' was co-founded by Glenn Simpson, who abruptly canceled his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee next week in light of recent events linking the democrat opposition research firm to a second attempt to take down the Trumps. 


If Brower's tweet is proven correct and Paul Manafort's phone was being tapped during the meeting - it means Loretta Lynch's surveillance of Manafort, an American, was done without a FISA warrant - as the first FISA request by the Obama administration came in July, the same month as the meeting in Trump Tower.

This also calls into question the June 27th, 2016 "tarmac" meeting between Lynch and Bill Clinton, which would have come after the meeting at Trump Tower. Was Lynch reporting the results of the alleged surveillence to Clinton?

FISA Timeline

As radio host Mark Levin detailed in March (via Breitbart):

Drawing on sources including the New York Times and the Washington Post, Levin described the case against Obama so far, based on what is already publicly known. The following is an expanded version of that case, including events that Levin did not mention specifically but are important to the overall timeline.

1. June 2016: FISA request. The Obama administration files a request with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) to monitor communications involving Donald Trump and several advisers. The request, uncharacteristically, is denied.

2. July: Russia joke. Wikileaks releases emails from the Democratic National Committee that show an effort to prevent Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) from winning the presidential nomination. In a press conference, Donald Trump refers to Hillary Clinton’s own missing emails, joking: “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 e-mails that are missing.” That remark becomes the basis for accusations by Clinton and the media that Trump invited further hacking.

3. October: Podesta emails. In October, Wikileaks releases the emails of Clinton campaign chair John Podesta, rolling out batches every day until the election, creating new mini-scandals. The Clinton campaign blames Trump and the Russians.

4. October: FISA request. The Obama administration submits a new, narrow request to the FISA court, now focused on a computer server in Trump Tower suspected of links to Russian banks. No evidence is found — but the wiretaps continue, ostensibly for national security reasons, Andrew McCarthy at National Review later notes. The Obama administration is now monitoring an opposing presidential campaign using the high-tech surveillance powers of the federal intelligence services.

Huge if true...

I am in awe of the Clintons. They can murder, run a pedo ring, set people up and lie and never I mean NEVER leave a trail or get caught other than in the fantasy put forward by the right wing. That is why you fuckers are such a joke. Talk about who has nothing...

You clowns need to check yourselves.

Yah yah Lynch tapped his phone but somehow forgot to leak this juicy morsel to the press before Hillary loses the election. If it smells like bullshit it is bullshit.

Ir does seem suspicious if you look at it that way, but they were not trying to create a public specacle that Trump Jr. colluded with Russians, they were looking for probable cause to offer to the FISA court.

If the Russian lawer is their bitch, they can't go on TV and proclaim the meetings are Trump collusion.  Or can they?

With all this criminal activity by Obama's team against Trump, Clinton selling America's Uranium for $145m, and the proven collusion between Obama, Deep State and the MSM - we get no action out of the DOJ to bring proven criminals to justice.


Under what rationale can Sessions not bring charges against Comey??

Comey admitted under oath to at least one felony, the same one for which Winner is being prosecuted.

Sessions is illegally giving Comey a free pass??

FreedomWriter's picture

Hopefully  Sessions is just gathering more faggots for the fire, like this one. It won't be that easy to prosecute the ex AG and the ex-head of the FBI.

Real evidence is needed, and this is starting to look like reak evidence.

I say stay tuned,  until we can gulp down their tears by the cupful.

A lot more coming down the pipe. I spoke to a delegation of 68 investigative journalists from Ukraine last Wednesday at the Library of Congress - the Open World Society's forum - they put me on the program to speak specifically about Paul Manafort and I invited Michael Isikoff whom I've been working with for the past few weeks and connected him to the Ukrainians. More offline tomorrow since there is a big Trump component you and Lauren need to be aware of that will hit in next few weeks and something I'm working on you should be aware of.

How about the Brent Budowski Podestas Self Appointed Guru @ the Hill...
That's good, sooner it's clarified the better, and the stronger the better. Re the Trump ISIS video, if we don't have the proof campaign should assign 100 people to look for it ASAP, there is probably something on tape somewhere. p.s. On the UN last week, support it yes, but be careful. I love Kerry like a bro' and support him always as HRC should and does. But be careful about the U.N., support but don't go too far. Putin did not agree to anything about removing Assad and continues to bomb the people we support. We pushed the same position in 2012 (Geneva 1, which HRC knows all about) and Geneva 2 in 2014. Odds that Putin agrees to remove Assad are only slightly better than the odds the College of Cardinals chooses me to someday succeed Pope Francis.

Best approach is to slaughter Donald for his bromance with Putin, but not go too far betting on Putin re Syria. Brent

That does not mean you have to accept it carte blanche as you seem to be proposing ? That attitude is exactly why this country is fucked up today !

The truth is the majority of lazy fat ass Americans did not realize until quite recently how corrupted their government actully is and was ! And 73% of Americans are lazy fat asses ! That too is part of the problem. Fat, dumb and lazy is never a good basis for a society, and we are there in spades !

I don't know where you got 73% from...but it seems accurate.  How does one fgo thru life like that?  Fat, dumb and lazy I mean.  I see these people and think, "WTF do you DO all day?"

The REAL scandal:  It is fact that sitting POTUS (Obama) was using US intel to spy on candidate Trump during the 2016 campaign.

The FAKE scandal, drummed up to help the subservient MSM distract from the REAL scandal: Candidate Trump was supposedly colluding with Russians to damage his opponent Clinton, such as by hacking DNC server.

I look forward to the real scandal rising to the fore as the fake scandal collapses.

Interfering in election:  DNC - In tank for Clinton, withheld server  /  WH - Obama, Rice  /  FBI - Comey  /  DOJ - Lynch  /...

goober's picture

Also realize that BHO and crew used all the agencies including DOJ and FBI prior to the "election" like this episode with Lynch and they could not find anything worthwhile so they are using it after the fact to create the false Russia narrative. And now since they lost they are doing anything possible to undermine Trump and any new policies that destroy their insane policies. They are completely in bed with the deep state they helped create in the 8 years they had power to corrupt it all with your tax dollars and jobs. Many do nothing bureaucratic jobs. And I realize the deep state was not their sole creation, but they did put it all on steroids far beyond anybody prior. And yes Bush was also a maniac and a criminal. In other words they were a criminal enterprise using your tax dollars to do as they pleased and create entities like black lives matter and transgender/gay/lesbian bullshit memes, illegal aliens and of course the supposed refugees and a host of other control mechanisms to garner votes  ! At this juncture they are creating distractions from their own crimes and that should be clear as well.

Ponder the fake dossier that was created by DEMs and helped by McCain. The many fake Russia memes that have proven to be false. The attacks of numerous people in the admin and family of DT and any media types that won't go along with the lies and dsitortions ? When does this all become an obvious form or conspiracy or racketerering and who gets charged under the RICO act. BHO, Holder, Lynch, Hillary, A. Weiner, S Rice or take your pick of the criminals ? This shit is well past a crime and should be prosecuted ASAP ! Why has Soros not been charged under the RICO act ? He has paid to incite violence and over throw the duly elected president and it is all easily verifiable and provable.

I say get on with it and do it ! start the prosecutions and let the chips fall where they may. Or let it all continue and accomplish nothing at all. Do Weiner, Rice, Comey and Soros first and go from there. That will expose all the rest and done deal !

If we let these people slide we have no country or laws or anything worth a shit ! We are at a point critical point in our history and how this all gets handled right now will tell our fate or prosperity as any form of freedom/liberty/justice may exist ! Here is how they did it all rather easily !

Here is LINK to Ruskie Atty Natalia's request to extend "PAROLE" granted to her by former AG Lynch.

Atty Natalia stated:
A) US denied me Visa
B) US denied my kids a Visa
C) Lynch granted me a "parole"
D) I arrived in US in Nov 2015
E) I snuck out of US to London for a few days but becuz of the "parole number" Lynch gave I was strip searched at U.K. Airport
F) My "parole" ends 1/7/2016. I am begging court again to extend it. Today is 1/5/2016.

G) Rec'd word yesterday 1/4/2017 that my 1st request to extend it was DENIED

Apparently this 2nd request was also denied becuz 4 USA Depts under Obama had to work to get Atty Natalia a special B1 Visa so she could take the June 2017 mtg in the Trump Jr democrat sting operation.
The 4 Obama Dept special Visa was not granted until June 2017

Trump has a 'nepotism' problem, coupled with an 'inexperienced' nepotism problem.  

The first problem can be fixed. The second problem can and probably will destroy his Presidency.

Mueller is simply standing by waiting for the partisans and deep state to create new memes to try and fumble together anything that can hold water even if it leaks like a sieve ! Mueller has accepted a job that will prove him to be a criminal as well as the rest of the democrats. The lawyers he has hired are proof ot their intentions, so fuck you very much, troll stooge ! All of these cocksuckers are simply trying to create anything they can, they have ZERO and they know it. Why so many new memes as they all fail reality checks and proven tio be democrat creations ? Only the idiots buy into the obvious lies and distortions like yourself or you are simply being paid by Soros or another blue group to favor more lies ? Consider when you are outed as a paid troll , what then ?

Your shit is beyond obvious to all.

If you cant see the meeting was a setup, there is something wrong with you, Obama and Lynch literally put her in there and practically setup the meeting.

And another thing.

Its not illegal to look for dirt on a political opponent, thats what all politicians do, its standard procedure, the hillary camp used that fake Russia report from the ex british spy... whats the difference?

DocBerg's picture

The Clintons made inspired use of the raw FBI files they obtained during their previous administrations.  So, why is Trump being badgered with this non-event? Getting dirt on one's opponents, indeed!

"Its not illegal to look for dirt on a political opponent"


You could say there are conventions that do exactly this very thing.

goober's picture

But it certainly is illegal to use government agencies and tax dollars by other means to do so deliberately to create false issues knowingly. In fact that would be many crimes not just one. And this is exactly what has happened in spades and why the DEMs are trying to cover it all up with the RUSSIA distractions ! Their crimes prior to and after the election, are far worse and more numerous than anything they have tried to create aqainst Trump. It is all 100% bullshit thrown at the wall !

Get on with the prosections with the RICO act !

VideoEng_NC's picture

Agreed, my point was that what Jr did was no different than what's done at the DNC/RNC events.

Unfortunately, most of America will never care because that is too complicated, too conspiratorial looking from high places, for them to get their heads around or to believe could ever happen.

goober's picture

That part is changing more than you may think, and rapidly. I see it everyday thru my research. Many millions have awoken mainly because it all got so insane it is unavoidable for all except the completely mind fucked and brain dead. And yes there are a bunch of those out there, but fewer today than a year ago for sure. The DEMs went too far with their crimes and extremism and have destroyed their own name themselves. Their many false paradigms have caught up with them as well the many illusions they have created in the last 8 years.

Not sure how you came up with Franken and De Grassi ? Both titheads and shills. Degrassi is the opposite of real science and closer to Franken as a comedian ! He promotes the religion of science as a political construct and all the fables we have been spoon fed our entire lives. Do black holes actaully exist ? Is it proven or just another hypothesis to milk the taxpayers and keep the false God of academia alive and well like CERN, the greatest boondoggle of all science and perhaps all human history ? 

Is there one human on the planet that can actually define what gravity is ? Yet we all assume what we have been told by the supposed religion of science and academia. I am not saying I have that definitive answer. I am saying I know they don't either, but want you think they do, so you will keep worhsipping and paying them to live well as all elites do, off your back !

The only thing of value out of this Trump-Russian Dossier thing, is seeing from the inside how it all REALLY works.

1- first reported by BbC that Jeb Bush ( and or supporters)requested investigation on Trump to get rid of him or gain dirt to use later as blackmail. Next day Bbc ( must have gotten same memo as the police who arrested Chelsea Clinton got- governer said" release her and wipe file clean- no charges)...recants and said corespondents "misspoke". Lol

2- intelligence community unites to crush a potential US President with the blessing of sitting President. ( Sir Andrew Wood from Britian clues McCain in on possible dirt on Trump for blackmail and Steele does actual gathering of info for money... Poor blow job for FBI refuses to pay $50,000-( so that's where our tax dollars go.)... Phewww missed a debt payment... Way to FBI , only pay for quality verifiable stuff.. If your gonna waste our money on sabotaging our electroial system at least do it right...

3- US firm contracts out probe to try to hide involvement with foreign spys.... They aren't bound by NSA rules.

4 unreliable, soddy work done by foreign contractor, he gets Pissed ( no golden showers for him though) and leaks it to Mother Jones and then Buzzfeed picks it up in partiality.... Media the strong arm of fake news... Always reliabe and sloppy . Other media sources a little sharper and fearful of libel suits pass.

5- if at first you don't succeed, try try again. McCain hands it off to James Comey being the little songbird that he is and sts back ( this MF*er is in charge of Security ... Think I'm gonna get a dog, a big dog, big mean dog...

6- meanwhile the opposition is still hammering away at false narrative instead of working at their assigned jobs... It's like paying for "special" politicans on a long siesta... I want my fucking money back or fire their asses!

"seeing from the inside how it all REALLY works."

Agree,  I have been saying this for years now. BHO and crew went so far that it clearly showed us all how easy it was to undermine any and all laws to benefit your political agendas by any means necessary. They had nearly a decade to corrupt all agenceis to their benefit so they did ! And PRAVDA/MSM was their main tool to accomplish it all by mind fucking the masses 24/7/365 ! It is the propaganda/interrogation arm of the DEM politburo working in conjunction with the deep state apparatus they put on steroids.

It is all very simple and devious stuff to be sure. Now it is all failing because enough time has passed to prove their illusions to be lies, distortions and manipulations !

Problem is that the 'Merican people' dont want to know anything, could not find their butt if it does not smell, and have the cognitive ability of knats.

Other than that, all is fine with the world. Not that politicians were choirboys prior to 1960, but something very rotten happened, starting with the Kennedy assasination.

Loretta Lynch illegally tapped Manafort's phone at the time of the Trump Jr. meet with a Russian lawyer. Lynch also allowed the lawyer in the country on probation. So Lynch likely leaked the story of the meeting as well as being involved in setting it up, but she used two FBI people to meet the reporters. The FBI also knew about the meeting because Kushner updated his filing with them to include the meetings.

That would be your three leakers with knowlege of the emails. Some of the same people who have been working to set Trump up all along. The FBI, or now Obama moles still in the FBI, and the Obama Clinton Democrats via Lynch.
