Is Boris Esphteyn Source E? Did He Resign as a Result of Devin Nunes’ Revelations?
As we noted on Saturday, it seems that Trump is looking to make Michael Flynn the fall guy on Russiagate at this point, as DT’s buddies at the Enquirer called Flynn a Russian mole-that Trump unmasked.
Then there was reporting that suggests Flynn may have a deal with the FBI.
But speaking of a Russian spy, it now seems that is exactly what Boris Epshtyen is.

“Boris Epshteyn has abruptly resigned tonight from his high ranking job in Donald Trump’s White House. Epshteyn, who was best known to the public as a bumbling Trump campaign surrogate on cable news, is a Russian immigrant who has ongoing deep financial ties to Moscow. No official reason is being given for his departure, but it’s almost certainly tied to the exploding Trump Russia scandal – potentially bolstering the rumor that Boris may be “Source E” from the infamous Trump Russia dossier.”
“First, let’s get some necessary disclaimers out of the way. Numerous aspects of former MI6 agent Christopher’s Trump Russia dossier have been proven true since its release. But there is no confirmation that the alleged Russian blackmail of Donald Trump with peeing prostitutes truly happened. As such, “Source E” may not even exist. But page two of the Dossier (link) asserts that Source E “provided an introduction” at a Moscow hotel which appears to have led to the Russian prostitutes ending up in Donald Trump’s room.”
“Two months ago Joseph Cannon published a blog post link in which he claimed that “An anonymous informant tells me that Source E is Boris Epshteyn, the man who is running Trump’s inauguration.” Cannon went on to make a lengthy case as to why his source’s claim fit with the publicly available evidence. Of course this couldn’t be externally confirmed or denied at the time. And as subsequent news media reports identified four other Trump advisers as being under FBI investigation, Epshteyn had largely been forgotten one way or another – until he suddenly resigned tonight.”
“Here’s where it gets tricky, but where this claim may help explain the confusing events of this past week. Six days ago, House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes let slip in an interview that one person currently in Donald Trump’s White House is under surveillance (link). Three days later someone fed Nunes some intel about surveillance of the Trump transition team which spooked him to the point that he ran to the White House and told Donald Trump about it. And now the end result of the Nunes controversy is tonight’s abrupt resignation of Boris Epshteyn.”
“If you start with the asserted but unproven the premise that Boris Epshteyn helped set up the “pee pee tape” incident which led to Russia having blackmail over Donald Trump, then you have to logically assume that Epshteyn has been some kind of Kremlin spy against Trump the entire time. If so, and if the U.S. intelligence committee had evidence to that effect, it would have led to a judge granting a FISA surveillance warrant against Epshteyn. When Nunes said a week ago that someone in the Trump White House is currently under surveillance, he would have been referring to Epshteyn. And if Nunes was subsequently fed intel revealing that Epshteyn was under surveillance because he was Kremlin operative spying on Trump the entire time, it would explain why Nunes flipped out and went running to Trump at his own career peril.”
What this underscores yet again is that Devin Nunes is the wrong man to be running this investigation. He himself is a ‘person of interest.’
P.S. As we saw in my poll out last week, the long awaited poll results are in, and right now I’m just 11 points down vs. Peter King (GOP-NY-District 2). And the voters don’t even know who I am yet.
There is nothing more important in getting answers to Trump-Russia collusion than a Democratic House in 2019. Please donate to help me in my part of the effort to fight for a Dem House.
Thank you. We must have a Dem House. And so, we will.
