Fusion GPS Tried And Failed To Link Trump To Jeffrey Epstein

Opposition research firm Fusion GPS tried and failed to find evidence of a close relationship between then-candidate Donald Trump and billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, whose 'Lolita Express" private jet ferried powerful clients to his private island, "Little St. James."

Epstein (who reportedly has an egg shaped penis) pleaded guilty to one count of soliciting prostitution from a 14 year old girl in 2008 for which he served 13 months in jail - filed in 2006; including wiring his mansion with hidden cameras, secretly recording orgies involving high profile friends with underage girls for blackmail, and receiving sexual massages from high school girls up to three times a day according to his former house manager of 11 years. 


Bill Clinton, Jeffrey Epstein, Epstein's Boeing

And as the NY Post detailed last year, Epstein and the Clintons are close

Epstein has spent the bulk of his adult life cultivating relationships with the worlds most powerful men. Flight logs show that from 2001 to 2003, Bill Clinton flew on Epsteins private plane, dubbed The Lolita Express by the press, 26 times. After Epsteins arrest in July 2006, federal tax records show Epstein donated $25,000 to the Clinton Foundation that year.

While trying to tie Trump to Epstein in an attempt to push the narrative to at least two reporters, Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS - the firm behind the unsubstantiated "Trump-Russia" dossier, found that the Trump-Epstein link appears purely social, according to the Washington Times, which writes "Journalist sources told The Washington Times that Fusion founder Glenn Simpson pushed the idea of a close relationship between Mr. Trump and Jeffrey Epstein," adding "Ken Silverstein, the reporter who ultimately wrote an Epstein-Trump report, confirmed to The Times that Fusion had sourced the story."

Mr. Silverstein, who wrote the Vice.Com story, was asked by The Washington Times if Fusion pushed the Epstein-Trump story.

 

Since you asked, yes, they helped me with that, Mr. Silverstein said. But as you can see, I could not make a strong case for Trump being super close to Epstein, so they could hardly have been thrilled with that story. [In my humble opinion], that was the best story written about Trumps ties to Epstein, but I failed to nail him. Trumps ties were mild compared to Bill Clintons.

In January 2016, Vice.com ran Silverstein's story on Trump's ties to Epstein, which framed them as more social - including dinner parties, two plane trips, and Epstein hanging out at Trump's Mar-a-lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida. As Radar reported last April, "According to an investigation by Radar, Trump was among dozens of renowned New Yorkers who knew Epstein socially but ostracized him after Palm Beach police uncovered the financiers sleazy double life," adding that Trump "once barred child molester Jeffrey Epstein from his famed Mar-a-lago club after the presidential candidate caught him hitting on a young girl." 


Glenn Simpson, co-founder Fusion GPS

Fusion GPS has been the subject of congressional investigation after it was revealed that the firm was behind the salacious 34-page "Trump-Russia" dossier, which relied in part on high level Kremlin officials, and was used to obtain a FISA warrant against the Trump campaign. Complying with subpoenas from House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence chairman Devin Nunes, unsealed bank records revealed Fusion was paid $523,000 by a Russian businessman convicted of tax fraud and money laundering, whose lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, was a key figure in the infamous June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower arranged by Fusion GPS associate Rob Goldstone.

He [Simpson] worked closely with Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer who also showed up at the infamous Trump Tower meeting held on June 9, 2016.

 

Simpsons research ended up in the Trump Tower meeting in the form of a four-page memo carried by Veselnitskaya. She also shared Simpsons work with Yuri Chaika, the prosecutor general of Russia.

 

Simpson told the House Intelligence Committee earlier this week that he did not know that Veselnitskaya provided the Browder information to Chaika or to Donald Trump Jr., the Trump campaigns point-man in the Trump Tower meeting. -Daily Caller

Moreover, Simpson met with Natalia Veselnitskaya hours before the Trump Tower meeting, and also met with Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman John Podesta the day after the 34-page dossier was published by BuzzFeed. The Daily Caller's Chuck Ross reported last month that the heavily redacted Fusion GPS bank records reveal that the DNC and Hillary Clinton - through law firm Perkins Coie - paid Fusion a total of $1,024,408 in 2016 for opposition research on then-candidate Donald Trump - including the 34-page dossier.

Ross also reports that law firm Baker Hostelter paid Fusion $523,651 between March and October 2016 on behalf of a company owned by Russian businessman and money launderer Denis Katsyv to research Bill Browder, a London banker who helped push through the Magnitsky Act - named after deceased Russian lawyer Sergei Magnitsky, who Browder hired to investigate Russian corruption.

Petr Aven (right) and Mikhail Fridman

Besides the "Dossier" and the Jeffrey Epstein story, Fusion GPS pushed the story that a secret email server existed between Trump Tower and Moscow's Alfa Bank. The report never gained traction after internet sleuths traced the IP address to a marketing server located outside Philadelphia. Tying Alpha Bank to the Dossier, F>usion is currently being sued for libel in two separate cases by three Russian businessmen-bankers in US District Court for their inclusion in the Dossier, along with the 'secret server' story pushed by Glenn Simpson. Alfa bank executives Mikhail Fridman, Petr Aven and German Khan filed suit in early October, claiming their reputations were harmed by the largely unsubstantiated document

"Even though the Dossier contained unverified allegations, Defendants recklessly placed it beyond their control and allowed it to fall into the hands of media devoted to breaking news on the hottest subject of the day: the Trump candidacy," the suit alleges.

Keep in mind through all of this that Hillary Clinton was "supposed" to win, which did not happen despite several attempts by Fusion GPS to set Trump up with the dossier, the Trump Tower meeting, and the Alfa bank connection - all of which have turned out to be epic fails.

Err.

now that you mention it....

indeed they do. But... 'these criminals' never get the credit due to them, as they are masters at staying outta spotlights, off radars, and outta the sights of

the COMPLICIT MEDIAZ who THEY BY N LARGE own and operate as simply more tools in their already overflowing arsenal of weapons of mass deception

by which they wage the WAR ON U!

RUSSO-TALMUDIC MAFIYAS with the best access to (sraeli-stolen)communications technologies ARE NOT "bankers" any more than guys who wear cement shoes are sports fishermen.

But... lets' not talk bout stuff like that!

MOAR FUSION GPS/REDBLUE distractions pls... so as we can keep debating who be the BIGGEST SCUMBAG POTUS of all time!

Ah! JS... allow me to say...
I feared for your safety, in the absence of seeing your moniker here lately...

having myself suffered the 'indignity' of being bumped from the board THE VERY DAY of our initial tete a tete here... by the local PTBzzzz!

Back agin(many a bribin schekel later! jus kiddin)and finally finished up on the grand plan execution...

& ready to rumble.....

"race: JEW" reaches out to me with the immediacy of a red flag.

Long years back, I stickied this quote from some long forgotten source - to be used whenever this subject comes to the fore:

"It can’t be race because modern Jewry is made up of 3 ethnically distinct groups: Ashkenazis, Sephardi and Oriental Jews. The biggest ethnic group, the European Jews or Ashkenazis, are the descendants of ethnic Turk Khazars from Mongolia, who came to Europe as part of Attila’s hordes, and their Germanic rape victims. Their only genetic link to Palestine is a few thousand rabbis the Khazars imported from Byzanth when they replaced their traditional phallus cult with Judaism. There were also some Jewish refugees who got kicked out of Byzanth for collaborating with the Arab enemy. With about 8% the second largest ethnic group, the Afro-Iberian Sephardi aren't Semitic either.
They are the descendants of a North African Berber tribe that converted to Judaism in the third century A.D. Only about 2 percent of modern Jews, the Oriental Jews, are actually of Judaic or Israelite origin. In other words, modern days Jews are genetically too different from each other for race to be the determining factor for Jewishness. Otherwise, you might as well call Catholics a race."

And post it now to your attention, in order to solicit your response, in the spirit of our agreed commitment to 'UNCOVER DISCOVER DISCUSS DISSOLVE & RESOLVE"... THE many myths under which talmudic kabbalism hides its dark soul-less beastiality!

Disposable Epstein is going to be the providential sacrificial lamb in a lot of dirty affairs because he's just the right turd at the right place, always ready to serve with his legendary hard-ons. And of course presstitutes are willing to link him to even Kim Jong Un to make him appear even worse.And I'm not sure he doesn't pocket money or blowjobs with each of his gigs.Congrats Jeff the stooge...

Race "Ashkenazi" works for me - and it's got a nice ring to it since it ends with 'nazi'.You're right, though - and I've pointed this out to any Red Sea Pedestrian who says that their claque's historical claim over Palestine should be treated with a straight face.You will notice  that "Jewish" always means exactly what you don't think:

  • when you think it's a religion... turns out that the person is an atheist.
  • when you think it's a race that traces its roots to Roman-era Palestine... turns out that the person is a convert (or a descendant of a convert);
  • when you think it's a set of cultural practices that stem from peasant practices in various shtletls in poorer bits of Eastern Europe... turns out that the family doesn't wear silly hats or speak Yiddish.

A slippery thing, in other words. (That's not to say that Jews are 'slippery' - that would be raciss).But a race: definitely not. Case in point - anyone can convert to Judaism.If I suffered a stroke that damaged the parts of my brain that enable me to filter out primitive stupid tribal fiction, I might decide to convert (assuming that the parts of my brain that stop me from being a gullible retard were also damaged).I'm part-Maori: you can't convert to that, because it is actually a race. I could be Jewish in less than a year if the conditions were right..Seriously, for the Ashkenazim it amounts to

"My great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandparent converted to a genital mutilation cult, and that cult says that a Sky Wizard promised them Palestine."

Really? 48 generations ago, some hovel-dweller's tribe converted en masse to a blut-und-rassen genital mutilation cult, and the UN is supposed to give their descendants land in the Levant?Well, here's the thing: I'm also part Finnish and part Danish (a lot less than 48 generations ago). The Vikings once held most of the north of the British Isles. So.... Odin bestowed on 'my people', the ownership of Ireland and the UK.Where do I sign to transfer the title deed to the UK north of the Dane Line? (I plan to invade and then 'settle' the rest, later).(inb4 "the people making the claim got beaten in a war after that" - well, that doesn't matter a solitary fuck, otherwise Palestine belongs to Rome).

Because that sort of physcial deformity is useful evidence to confirm a witness' testimony.If he had a normal dong, and the witness who claims to have had his dick shoved in her face says "There was nothing odd about his junk"... that's a wash, and shit is still "He said, she said".If the witness says "His junk was fucked up - shaped weird, like an egg or some shit like that" and he's examined as has an egg-cock... that makes the witness credible.If the witness says it was normal-looking, but it turns out is was an egg-cock... that's going to hurt the prosecutor..It might also be claimed that because of its structure he was unable to perform some sex act of which he was accused - as a f'rinstance, maybe his defence team would assert that his egg-cock can only ever be "soft-boiled", so it would be almost impossible to anally rape someone.I'll make my own way out for the "soft-boiled" bit...

Thank yu for yur downvote - which serendipitously reminded me that...
I had placed pon my 'todo' list... and forgotten...
a brief description of the ways in which we can SEE THE EVIDENCE right here on these pages - of the TIGHT CONTROL which the RUSS0-TALMUDIC MAFIYAS keep over all internet channels...

by means of an army of sockpuppet overseers who are tasked with defecating over any and all outcroppings of truth, and use the built in defectives of 'micro-democracy' scams like this one to attempt to influence public opinion with phony popularity polls...

which INCREASING FAIL to fool anybody... as the manipulations which you make on these threads ARE OBVIOUS to all but the truly witless and/or COMPLICIT.

Now back to our usual game show.

Access to tech is no use whatsoever when your personnel are incompetent.Stop fearing these people - or, if you need to keep fearing them, stop encouraging others to fear them.They derive their power over you (and the rest of us) because too many people believe one of two sets of lies -(1) that they are in their jobs out of a sense of 'public service';(2) that they are all-seeing, all-knowing, and can keep a lid on what's coming. Bullshit set (1) is mainly believed by religious types (who have a psychological need for benevolent external authority). People who left one last set of stupid childhood fairy stories in their locker when they stopped believing in Santa and the Easter Bunny.Bullshit set (2) is believed by people who know shit's wrong but want an external justification for their failure to get up on their hind legs and stop behaving like a house negro (hat tip to my man Malcolm X: motherfucker knew what's what. No holiday named after the ultimate "field negro").Anyhow...The 'powerful' are only as powerful as their enforcers: their enforcers are heavily armed and very stupid, which is quite a scary combination if you get involved with them directly.But the thing is: they're scary until they get the right memo, and then they're absent.Ask Mubarak how quickly that can happen - how you can go from a complete 'lock' on a country, to no control, in 36 hours. Or ask Ceaucescu - his loss of control took literally 15 minutes to unfold, and he was dead by the end of the day.It would be useful to read some John Robb to get a handle on how fragile the power-clique system actually is to systematic 4G attacks on critical networks (as a way to undermine confidence in the state to 'keep the lights on'): one of those networks is government employees, who are neither bulletproof nor protected in their homes.Robb genuinely understands the mechanisms that will bring the nation-state system undone, even  though I disagree with his ideological position - which seems to be, in summary, "although the existing structure can't resist 4GW/OSW, it should try to... because the existing structure is legitimate (or is the best way forward even if it's not legitimate)".

well i certainly hope the "left" doesn't stop this mueller gift that keeps on giving.  the word at daily kos for the five hours i was there before being banned was that mueller has trump on the ropes and big things, maybe impeachment, are going to flow from it.  yet mueller even demotes the guys like strzok and ohr that have most clearly stepped out of bounds so as to make the conclusion of wrongdoing incontrovertible.  ohr's wife is now seen to be a cia operative who very likely put the dossier together with a retired mi6 guy and some renegade russians.  how's that for russians meddling in our hallowed elections??

No, they knew each other rather superficially and Trump's name appears only once in that book unlike so many others who have lists of phone numbers under their names.  Bill Clinton has around 20 and they include all of his aides, etc.   See Smoking Gun.Trump, before Epstein was arrested, did hitch a ride or two from West Palm Beach to Teterboro airport on Epstein's much smaller Cessna.  No girls, no fun.  Just a free ride back to NYC.But the telling blow to Epstein came when he who had some pool and tennis privileges was instantly tossed out of Mar-a-Lago once Trump found out about that arrest.
