Is Carter Page Going to be the First Arrest?
I ask that as according to intel sources, the first big arrests in Russiagate are coming next week.
“Donald Trump dropped the “Mother of all Bombs” today in Afghanistan (source: CNBC), but it appears to have been a mere attempt at distracting from the mother of all bombshells. Reliable sources, who have proven themselves correct in the past, are now pointing to U.S. intel agencies working with the Attorney General of New York to begin imminently dismantling Trump’s inner circle. In fact the big major arrests may come as soon as next week.”
Later on yesterday evening-after the “Mother of all Bombs’ wasn’t enough to take Russia off the front page-Trump started playing around issuing threats to North Korea.
Maybe in the end the only way to keep it off the front page is nuclear war with North Korea. Kim Jong II has finally found someone as crazy as he is.
But the story of the subversion of our election goes forward. And as someone could be arrested as early as next week you have to wonder if it’s Carter Page. After all, he’s all but admitted discussing removing Russian sanctions with at least one sanctioned individual-Igor Sechin.
“In an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, Page first denied having suggested to Russian officials that Trump would be open to easing sanctions.”
Absolutely not,” he said, adding: “I never offered that. No, nothing along those lines. Absolutely not. I mean, it may — topics — I don’t remember. We’ll see what comes out in this FISA transcript.”
But when Stephanopoulos pushed Page, Page said “something may have come up in a conversation,” before adding: “I have no recollection, and there is nothing specifically that I would have done that would have given people that impression, George.”
Of course, we know that he is a Russian spy recruit. So maybe he’ll be the first arrest. Though there are many other possibilities.
“The claim first came from @SheWhoVotes, a Twitter user who is also a Constitutional lawyer and has a solid track record. She tweeted today that she’s “Hearing from intelligence insiders that [New York State Attorney General Eric] Scheiderman is working closely with intel. They’re going to take out the entire three ring circus” (link). This was then quickly validated with the words “Fact check: true” by Louise Mensch, a former member of British Parliament who is now a political journalist, and whose inside sources have been consistently correct about the FISA warrants in the Trump-Russia investigation going back to last fall.”
A lot of people take shots at Mensch but she was way out in front on the FISA warrant which she published on November 7. The NY Times at the time published an FBI source that falsely claimed Russia wasn’t helping Trump win just ‘creating chaos.’
“Mensch then added “First arrests maybe next week” (link). She also referenced the arrest of ten low level mafia figures in New York two weeks ago, who were not Russian, but whose crime family has alleged ties to both Donald Trump and the Russian mafia through Felix Sater; Palmer Report covered these arrests on March 28th (link). Two days later the FBI also descended on a casino with strong ties to Trump (link). And of course two days ago the FBI leaked that it’s been surveilling Carter Page since last summer, meaning it has recordings of everyone he conspired with, in what seemed to be a final warning shot to any Trump-Russia conspirators who want to cut a deal before the arrests begin.”
You go, AG Eric Schneiderman:
“There is also more directly tangible evidence that the State of New York is involved in the federal action against Donald Trump and his empire. On March 19th, the Wall Street Journal documented that NY AG Schneiderman had hired a close associate of former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara to specifically focus on Trump’s criminal behavior (link). So Donald Trump’s decision to drop a massive bomb in Afghanistan today may have been because he knows what’s coming as well.”
But while this is good news it’s also worrisome: what will Trump have to do to get this off the front pages next? Only thing left is nuclear war with North Korea.
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
