Some of the comments were way over the top. Those folks should die in shame.

In a key finding of the Mueller report, Ukrainian businessman Konstantin Kilimnik, who worked for Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, is tied to Russian intelligence.

But hundreds of pages of government documents — which special counsel Robert Mueller possessed since 2018 — describe Kilimnik as a ‘sensitive’ intelligence source for the U.S. State Department who informed on Ukrainian and Russian matters.

Why Mueller’s team omitted that part of the Kilimnik narrative from its report and related court filings is not known. But the revelation of it comes as the accuracy of Mueller’s Russia conclusions face increased scrutiny.


It’s becoming increasingly clear that the Mueller Report isn’t worth the paper it was written on. This article, from The Hill, is actual journalism (the white buffalo of the 4th Estate). John Solomon, in fleshing out Konstantin Kilimnik, reveals that Kilimnik “was a “sensitive” intelligence source for State going back to at least 2013 while he was still working for Manafort, according to FBI and State Department memos [Solomon] reviewed.

Kilimnik was not just any run-of-the-mill source, either.

He interacted with the chief political officer at the U.S. Embassy in Kiev, sometimes meeting several times a week to provide information on the Ukraine government. He relayed messages back to Ukraine’s leaders and delivered written reports to U.S. officials via emails that stretched on for thousands of words, the memos show.

The FBI knew all of this, well before the Mueller investigation concluded.”

I’ve already quoted too much from Solomon’s piece but this...
quote:
Three sources with direct knowledge of the inner workings of Mueller’s office confirmed to me that the special prosecutor’s team had all of the FBI interviews with State officials, as well as Kilimnik’s intelligence reports to the U.S. Embassy, well before they portrayed him as a Russian sympathizer tied to Moscow intelligence or charged Kilimnik with participating with Manafort in a scheme to obstruct the Russia investigation.


Well worth your time. I’ve heard Rush say that the very first statement in the opening paragraph of the Mueller Report has been proven demonstrably false. It appears that sins of omission were a tactic used in an attempt to create a false image of the Trump campaign’s interactions with “Russians” and that the Obama Administration interacted with the same players and that didn’t warrant a mention in the Report.

John Solomon, TheHill.com

Monday, June 10, 2019

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-eight percent (48%) disapprove.

The latest figures include 35% who Strongly Approve of the job Trump is doing and 40% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -5. (see trends).

Regular updates are posted Monday through Friday at 9:30 a.m. Eastern (sign up for free daily email update).

Now that Gallup has quit the field, Rasmussen Reports is the only nationally recognized public opinion firm that still tracks President Trump's job approval ratings on a daily basis. If your organization is interested in a weekly or longer sponsorship of Rasmussen Reports' Daily Presidential Tracking Poll, please send e-mail to beth@rasmussenreports.com.

Description

INTERVIEW - JOE DIGENOVA - Legal analyst and former U.S. Attorney to the District of Columbia – discussed the upcoming House Dem hearings on the Mueller Report and Hillary’s claims that obstruction occurred.

Democrats begin public airing of Mueller report. WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump says it’s “case closed.” But Democrats are just getting started with Robert Mueller. House Democrats have scheduled a series of hearings this coming week on the special counsel’s report as they intensify their focus on the Russia probe and pick up the pace on an investigative “path” — in the words of Speaker Nancy Pelosi — that some of them hope leads to impeachment of the president. In doing so, they are trying to draw the public’s attention on the allegations that Trump sought to obstruct a federal investigation and they want highlight his campaign’s contacts with Russia in the 2016 election. And they will lay the groundwork for an appearance from Mueller himself, despite his stated desire to avoid the spotlight.
Hillary Clinton: 'You cannot read' Mueller's report without concluding obstruction 'occurred' (Fox News) Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said on Saturday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report clearly showed that obstruction of justice "occurred" during the Russia investigation. "If you take the time to read the Mueller report, actually read it ... you come to two inescapable conclusions," she said while speaking at her alma mater Wellesley College. Those conclusions, she said, were that Russia conducted a "sweeping" attempt to interfere in the 2016 election and that "obstruction of justice occurred." "You cannot read the report, chapter and verse, fact after fact, without reaching those conclusions," she said, according to a video posted by The Hill.

--Sir Winston Churchill

Justin Amash gone from House Freedom Caucus after saying Trump's conduct was 'impeachable'

Middle of story, click on video from Twitter, one of his constituents lays into him for two minutes. She actually volunteered for him on his first campaign.

My wife was two seats away from her. She was STEAMED and I don't blame her. Justin Amash was our guy for a long time. He's anti-FISA, anti-NSA spying, anti-frivolous kinetic action, etc. He explains every vote on Facespace, and claims to always uphold the constitution.

Suddenly in the last year he's been somewhat absent and then pulls out this impeachment BS and makes NO comments to the fact that the whole thing is a huge farce.

He's being a dick and a lot of people in west Michigan are pissed.

See that's the thing. He's not. He is (or was) closer to a libertarian than anything, but with a solid pro-Life view. He was explaining votes on Facebook back when no one, and I mean no one in congress would talk about their votes. He held both sides of the aisle accountable in both the Michigan State House, as well as the House of Representatives in Washington DC.

In the last year he's made this odd never-Trump swerve and people are surprised and a bit pissed about it, especially because Trump is governing with more conservatism (aside from spending) than any (R) in recent history.

People are right to question his manufacturing ties to China, via his brother (who I graduated with).

I was on the "front line" with Ms. Timmer during Amash's early runs. They called me "Troll Killer" in the campaign office due to my dogged takedowns of Facebook trolls on the Amash Facebook page.

I don't necessarily think this has a place in the Trump thread other than to say, people around here are wary of never Trumpers and I don't see him getting as much support in 2020. He might lose his seat and if he's primary'd by someone strong, which means we'll probably lose the seat to a (D) in the general, it's that close around here.

He's a dick because he knows this and thinks people will hold their nose and vote for him anyway. With all of this pioneering and transparency on social media, he's a buffoon if he doesn't understand how quickly you can squander your support because you're being a dickhead never-Trumper.

It's amazing how 'serving' in Congress can change people... usually for the worse.


"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible."

Actually, I referenced the Twitter one in the middle of the article. That one is complete. The one you linked has been edited. This one is cool because of the follow up though.

well, yesterday wasn't a good day for John Dean

remember him, the guy that was convicted of obstruction during Watergate and Nixon...

one could argue that he's the reason why so many people distrust government these days yet the dems bring him in as a showcase on why Trump is Nixon...

what a bunch of pathetic losers

I watched Rep. Jordan’s cross-exam of Dean just before opening this thread because Rush was talking about it. What in the hell was Dean doing testifying before a Congressional committee? So, he plead guilty to Obstruction 45 years ago and he’s a SME?!? What a mockery the Dems have made of our system of government.

Whatever. As far as I'm concerned it's all just laser pointer antics, whether it's Sean Hannity or Rachel Maddow. People broke the law and I want to see justice done. CTH has thousands of documents that show where laws were skirted or ignored outright. People need to be held to account.

I hope the POTUS declassify process ramps up soon.
