Why Is Russia Collusion Story Dead? Kushner Only 1 Answer

The sound you have not heard over the past several days is the slow death of the Russia Collusion narrative as several events worked either counter to what was expected by Left/Dems/Media or has actually blown up in the faces of those promulgating this fiction. Consider the following:

1) There have been NOOOOO leaks from inside any of the ongoing investigations - why? Don't claim that those leading those investigations have put a clamp down on leakers because that does not fly. When someone wants to leak something to embarrass this president, it shows up in the Media. Feel free to deny that but one could just as easily suggest that there's nothing new to leak, at least of any consequence, especially in light of the following, which would need some rebuffing if possible. 

2) Jared Kushner's visits to the House and Senate not only provided no new information, they had JK stridently defending his position, former statements, honor and the Trump Administration. For any who expected Kushner to stumble, take the Fifth or otherwise support the Collusion narrative, they were severely disappointed. 

3) In the first of three vastly underreported stories this week, one of the co-founders of Fusion GPS, the creators of the tale of fiction now known as the Dodgy Dossier, has admitted that his organization, as well as the efforts to create the dossier, were partly funded through entities related to or emanating from Russia. We also heard this week that GPS was involved with the Russian lawyer who met with Junior, Kushner, etc. Worse, because the principals of Fusion GPS are former journalists, they have a cozy relationship with their former colleagues in the Media who are refusing to cover this story.

4) In the second underreported story, Representative Nunes, head of the House Intel Committee, has apparently sent an email to NDI Coats inquiring about how the Obama Administration made "hundreds" of unmasking requests to intel agencies. These are Americans, politicians, corporate executives, media figures, etc. who were somehow caught up in US intelligence gathering efforts. Curiously, many of these requests came from Obama officials unaffiliated with intelligence analysis such as the UN representative Samantha Powers. Oh, and among those whose identities were being unmasked are Trump transition team officials. Hmmmm

5) The above dovetailed with another under-reported story of an ACLU-lawsuit FOIA release of an internal memo showing that the FBI and NSA improperly searched, stored and distributed raw intelligence on Americans, according to recently declassified documents about the controversial Section 702 surveillance program. The documents reveal specific violations that the FBI and NSA disclosed to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) or the Justice Department's national security division during President Barack Obama’s time in office, between 2009 and 2016. Reviewing the documents, more than 90 incidents were found that specifically cited an impact on Americans, who are not supposed to be affected by 702 surveillance. Many of the incidents involved multiple people, multiple violations, or extended periods of time, the newspaper noted.

6) Lastly, is the more widely reported, though still underreported, story involving the frauds who were the IT staff for Debbie 2-names and a couple dozen other Dem politicians. This story will have deep implications for many of the other stories, mark my words. Assuming of course that the Media chooses to report on it. 

Wrap all this up and you can see why the Russia Collusion story is dying, especially as the Obama era abuses of US intel systems becomes increasingly apparent.

Related to 3) above:

Fusion GPS, the political opposition research group at the center of the media's Trump-colluded-with-the-Russians "narrative" has been abnormally cozy with the mainstream media organs it's used in its disinformation and smear operations. Now, they're protecting them.

Daily Caller reports that these very same press creatures who worked with Fusion GPS to spread the false stories about Trump, have gotten curiously silent about the firm's role in the widening web of scandal about the firm's actual role in colluding with the Russians. They include CNN, the Washington Post and the New York Times, none of which have reported a word about the new revelations showing that Fusion GPS took money from the Russians to undercut President Trump.

Fusion GPS apparently took money from anyone. They not only cooked up the infamous phony "golden showers" dossier about President Trump, not a word of which was true, though some media outlets reported it that way, they also engineered the Russian meetings with President Trump's son, Donald Trump, Jr., and two other associates inside the Trump Tower, as a means of making it appear that Trump was in bed with the Russians all along. In testimony last Thursday before the Senate Judiciary Committe, hedge fund manager William Browder said they were up to their eyeballs working with the most nefarious elements of the Russian government/oligarchy. Daily Caller writes:

At the same time that Fusion GPS was crafting the dossier allegedly exposing the Trump campaign’s collusion with the Russian government, they were also working to advance Russian interests, according to Browder’s testimony.

Browder told the committee that Natalia Veselnitskaya, the same Russian lawyer who met with Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort at Trump Tower during the campaign, “hired Glenn Simpson of the firm Fusion GPS to conduct a smear campaign against me and Sergei Magnitsky in advance of congressional hearings on the Global Magnitsky Act.” The law is named for Sergei Magnitsky, a lawyer who represented Browder before Russian authorities jailed and killed him after he exposed a massive fraud scheme.

Who among the mainstream media organs has been more persistently, consistently, insistently anti-Trump than the New York Times, the Washington Post and CNN? they are praising themselves like crazy as hard-hitting reporters who are finally doing 'real journalism' with the advent of the Trump administration, given their sorry past as media lapdogs during the previous one.

But it doesn't hold water with these revelations. Apparently, they were just string puppets for Fusion GPS and its media manipulators. They got their fake scoops, they ran with them, they did what Fusion GPS wanted, and Fusion GPS took its payments from its clients.

From another article:

If taking money from repressive kleptocracies is an ugly business, an even uglier story emerges when you start connecting the dots. Add Fusion GPS’s contracts with Russian and Russian-linked entities together with the company’s role in compiling and distributing a defamatory dossier sourced to the Kremlin, and the idea that the Trump Dossier was a Kremlin information operation becomes quite plausible—with much of the U.S. media serving as the delivery mechanism for a poison dart aimed at the legitimacy of the American democratic system.

But wait: How could the Kremlin be targeting Donald Trump, at the same time as it was trying to elect Trump by hacking John Podesta’s emails and spreading them on Wikileaks, and running anti-Hillary Clinton conspiracy stories on Russia Today? The answer is that the purpose of Russia’s interventions in the 2016 election wasn’t to elect either Clinton or Trump, for a traditional quid pro quo. Information operations don’t work that way; they’re hammers, not scalpels. You can sow distrust and confusion, and pit groups against each other—but you can’t move swing voters in Wisconsin from one column to another with any kind of reliability, and efforts to achieve such a straightforward aim are more likely than not to backfire.

No, the point of the Kremlin’s assault on the American election of 2016 was to defame both candidates, and sow chaos, and thereby to discredit the American system of government, which rests on the consent of the governed. By any measure you care to use, the Kremlin has succeeded, and Fusion GPS was one of its most useful instruments.

Number one is spot on, there is nothing damaging/embarrassing to leak.

Number three is going to get very interesting depending on who goes after it and how aggressively it's pursued.

The Russia collusion story is not dead, it's just doing a 180 turn back on the Dems.

And don't forget the Pakistani IT debacle. It's going to be huge.

Unfortunately the thing that I've heard repeatedly about muellers investigation is that it's 100% opposition research. 

You wont see anything new until they can prove trump rents an apartment to Russians or something stupid comes up. 

The fact is that the libs don't care about Russia and they would gladly support Russia over any republican president. They are very scared that trump will clean house with sessions and mueller and hire a recess appointment for sessions. I say do it

With regard to number 1, if they've got him dead to rights, I mean really dead, like impeach/jail dead, isn't it in their best interests to leak NOTHING, and just build a concrete bullet proof case?

Are you kidding?

If they had the goods on Trump it would be leaked front page news.

It would be like expecting Trump to stop 3AM tweeting when he gets pissed off.

Not going to happen.

IF they had the goods............

And IF Mueller is really a true professional assassin.............

Wouldn't the smarter play be to just solidify the case and then spring it all at once?

IF there was anything they simply could not resist leaking it.

Like a moth to the flame...........it's inevitable.

I agree, but I was trying to offer an intelligent "what if" as a conversation piece.

Leaks are big money. It's the headlines. For 6 months it's been russia Russia Russia. That headline is over. Even the believers don't believe it anymore. JK testified, he's not in cuffs. It's over. But all this looking in the Donald, brought up stuff that was suppposed to be buried. They have to stop or more stuff will come out.

It is too late, there is now a trove of Democrat misdeed and mishaps out in the public domain.

If these are not investigated it will be a travesty of justice, the repercussions of which will reverberate for generations.

No, because every day that passes allows Trump to get more done, even if only with staff appointments, EOs, rule and ref changes, etc. If they had the kill shot, they would release it now as a leak to further distance  the GOPE from him (if that's possible).

The problem with an "iron clad" case for impeachment is that it would have to be passed through the GOP dominated House as an indictment and the through the Senate as a trial. It would require that bullet-proof case but I think they would be doing quite a bit of "beach softening" in advance.

i think it is a sign of them having nothing. Too many people in the know and too many looking for a scoop.
