Keith Olbermann reminds us to stay focused on Russiagate and offers a concise timeline of collectively overwhelmingly incriminating events.
The Mooch (Anthony Scaramucci), and a Tweeted “ban” on transgender service members are serving to draw the media eye away from Russiagate and the colossal failure of the utterly sociopathic Trumpcare.
We refuse to allow Trump’s constant distractions to shift our gaze. It’s what Trump wants, but Americans need to remain vigilant and on target more than ever.
Trump supporters like those at Fox News (We won’t link to their propaganda) are desperately trying to create a new narrative centered around “Fusion GPS,” a firm they are attempting to connect to the Steele dossier in order to derail and discredit the investigations. They also, of course, want to bring up Hillary as much as possible, but she is not the president.
Trump is the one currently in the White House, and he must be responsible for his actions.
As Keith Olbermann reports, ex-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak’s communications with his Kremlin masters were reportedly intercepted, in which Kislyak mentioned two meetings with Jeff Sessions. Sessions was the Trump campaigns senior advisor at the time.
“It is case closed for the Trump campaign’s attempt to collude, conspire, collaborate with the Russians, to illegally interfere with this country’s 2016 presidential election,”states Olbermann.
Olbermann breaks down the timeline of “seemingly separate random events” to clarify the truth. He offers a reminder on why Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) warned Trump there would be “Holy hell” to pay if he fires Jeff Sessions. Graham is also introducing a bill next week to “block a president from firing the special counsel without a federal judge’s approval if that counsel is investigating the president or his administration.” That bill would affect future presidents as well.
Here is a breakdown of Keith Olbermann’s timeline, with the video posted at the end of this article:
April 27, 2016: Russian Ambassador Kislyak attends Trump’s pro-Russia foreign policy speech at the Mayflower hotel. Private meetings are denied by Sessions, who claims he doesn’t remember Kislyak at all, but the Washington Post reported that Kislyak had a totally different story about their conversation about policy issues important to Moscow.
June 3, 2016: Trump Jr. is emailed an offer for incriminating evidence about Hillary Clinton from the Russian lawyer with connections to the Kremlin.
June 7, 2016: Trump Jr. confirms the meeting. Several hours later, Donald Trump promises to talk about Hillary Clinton’s “corrupt dealings with the Russians.”
Breaking news from CBS: Trump Jr.’s meeting with the Russian lawyer wasn’t about adoption, but about repealing the Magnitsky Act sanctions, according to a financier for one of the largest investment firms in Russia.
June 9, 2016: Trump Jr., Paul Manafort, and Jared Kushner meet with the Russians at Trump Tower. Only a few minutes concluding the meeting, Trump took to Twitter to comment on Hillary Clinton’s emails, using the number 33,000 for the first time.
June 15, 2016: Hacker Guccifer 2.0 posts hacked documents from the Democratic National Committee.
July 7, 2016: Carter Page, Trump’s foreign policy advisor, traveled to Moscow to deliver a speech to a Russian economics institute and criticizes American foreign policy. Later he is accused of meeting with a Russian in charge of meddling in the 2016 election.
July 18, 2016: At the Republican National Convention, the ubiquitous Kislyak meets with Carter Page and Jeff Sessions. Kislyak updates Moscow on the conversations, according to reports.
July 27, 2016: Trump has his last Press Conference of his campaign. Trump goes on TV and asks Russia to find Hillary Clinton’s emails.
September 8, 2016: Jeff Sessions hosts Kislyak in his Senate office, his 3rd meeting. Interestingly, Intelligence sources won’t reveal what Kislyak reported back to the Kremlin.
October 7, 2016: Trump operative Roger Stone repeatedly posted on Twitter about his contacts with hacker Guccifer 2.0 and Julian Assange, threatening Hillary Clinton’s campaign Chairman, John Podesta, and threatening Clinton with the hashtag, #LockHerUp. WikiLeaks then publishes 20,000 pages of Podesta’s emails, right on cue.
December 1 or 2, 2016: Kislyak goes to Trump Tower to meet with Jared Kushner and National Seurity Advisor, Michael Flynn. Kushner tries to establish back-channel communications with Russia using Russian embassies and consulates. The reported goal: Unrecorded communications between the Trump transition team and Moscow.
January 10, 2017: Session lies by ommission in his confirmation hearing. “I did not have communications with the Russians.”
May 10, 2017: Trump hosts the Russian in the Oval Office, including Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Sergey Kislyak. This happens only one day after firing James Comey, FBI Director. Trump reportedly reveals Classified Intelligence from Israel. Russian photographers were allowed in, but not American media.
June 13, 2017: Sessions testifies before the Senate, denying meeting privately or having any kind of interaction with Kislyak at the Mayflower Hotel.
July 7, 2017: Trump meets privately with Vladimir Putin at the G20 Summit in Germany with no American officials (and a Japanese translator.) Trump does not disclose the meeting.
July 8, 2017: Trump Jr. claims the meeting with the Russian lawyer was about adoption. The statement from Jr. was approved by Donald Trump and White House staff.
July 22, 2017: Trump Tweets that he has the power to pardon himself.
July 24, 2017: Jared Kushner makes remarks before meeting with the Senate Intelligence Committee. He admits to meeting with the Russian lawyer as well as trying to set up back channel communications with Russia, yet denies the back channel was a back channel.
If you can read this chain of events and still doubt that Trump might as well be an acting Russian agent, then you aren’t paying attention at all. The American people must not look away. A Constitutional crisis is about to engulf our country unless Trump does the right thing and follows Nixon’s lead to resign.
