CIA received a recording of a conversation about money from the Kremlin going into Trump's campaign!

Report: CIA set up task-force in 2016 to investigate possible Russian funding of Trump's campaign
https://finance.yahoo.com/news/report-cia-set-task-force-162553783.html
(Jonathan Ernst/Reuters)
A US counterintelligence task force was established by the CIA in 2016 to investigate possible Russian funding of President-elect Donald Trump's presidential campaign, the BBC reported on Friday.

The task force included the FBI, the Treasury and Justice Departments, the CIA, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, and the National Security Agency (NSA).

It was set up after the director of the CIA, John Brennan, received a recording of a conversation about money from the Kremlin going into Trump's campaign coffers, the BBC's Paul Wood reported. The recording was apparently passed to the CIA by the intelligence agency of one of the Baltic States.

On October 15, the task force was granted a warrant by a judge in the FISA court named after the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to intercept the electronic records from two Russian banks that may have been implicated in the money transfer, a senior intelligence official told the BBC. Trump was not named in the warrant, but three of his associates were the subject of the inquiry.

2. Can this continue to be investigated after Trump takes office?

Trump and his thugs are such dirty players, I would think this mob family will shut down any investigations. Or can the CIA continue to investigate but if the congress chooses not to do anything about it, it's just an investigation that goes no where?

101. Actually he had Robert Bork to do the firing.

Others had too much integrity to do the deed.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saturday_Night_Massacre

When Bork was rewarded with a Supreme Court seat, the Dems rejected him on the grounds that his answers showed that he saw the court In selfish terms.

The Republicans have been punishing us ever since.

It's quite possible. If it's revealed that he took Russian money, coordinated with Putin, and Comey sat on all of it, they may be forced to act to save themselves.

20. This is the kind of stuff that keeps me addicted to politics.

It should be obvious that the informed public is about 6 months ahead of their politicians on this issue. Congress will have to be dragged, kicking and screaming, into taking this stuff seriously. And they'll only respond when the Trumpies start abandoning ship and getting enraged that Trumpy's being blackmailed by Putin. Like our politicians, however, the Trumpies are about 6 months behind in "getting it."

Apart from a few groups I'm aware of and active in...those states that came up red on the final election map still seem to have a view of, "that stuff is just talk, false news, let's give him a chance to do the things he promised. And if he doesn't, we understand that he can't turn the Titanic quickly". It's super frustrating to watch...

84. But again--

...the Repugs won't investigate. The country turned on Nixon during Watergate because the Senate investigation was televised and unfolded in very watchable, dramatic way.

The press was a little more journalistically responsible in those days and for sure there were some Repugs who really did put the country before their party. That won't happen this time.

Sounds verified. No agency has issued it's findings on the investigations and they can't comment on ongoing investigations. Trump's getting sworn in as our agency's try to figure out if he's a mole. This is beyond disturbing.

68. I don't think it's that far of a stretch at this point.

Trump adviser had five calls with Russian envoy on day of sanctions: sources
http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-trump-russia-idUSKBN14X1YX

"Michael Flynn, President-elect Donald Trump's choice for national security adviser, held five phone calls with Russia's ambassador to Washington on the day the United States retaliated for Moscow's interference in the U.S. presidential election, three sources familiar with the matter said."

"They spoke on condition of anonymity, citing internal U.S. government deliberations about the issue."

These sources sound like they work within the intelligence community, and if they're confirming phone calls between Flynn and Moscow...

38. So basically Comey struck first

Comey knew back in Oct 2015 that Trump and his criminal clique were traitors. So he struck at Clinton first before the Russia-Trump info surfaced through a leak.

43. So Is This The Alfa Bank Money?



Does anyone remember this Slate story from the end of October? For awhile, people were talking about this... then nothing.

51. Regarding the replies/comments.

The main reply is that Clinton took a lot of foreign money herself,
particularly from the Saudis.

Is this true?

Of course, if she did, two wrongs don't make a right; but I want to know
whether she did or not.

58. I read through that

Clinton didn't take any money from foreign governments! It was donated to the CGI which does charitable good work throughout the world.

64. Commenters are conflating fully reported, legal donations to the Clinton Foundation with

under the table, illegal campaign payoffs to Trump.

The phony narrative (flogged by the right wing, Jill Stein, and the BoBs with lots of assistance from the media) that Hillary was bought and paid for was hugely successful in damaging her candidacy and her credibility.

about the discovery of a computer somewhere in Trump Tower that was a direct line to a Russian bank - and then NOTHING. The story disappeared.

then withholding it from public knowledge prior to the election is treasonous.

90. No, because it could be disinformation.

A call isn't worth anything without actual proof of transfers. They have that then it's another story altogether.

82. I can feel a deja vu moment coming...

It'll be like Wall Street and the Great Recession. Lots of big talk about throwing all the big bankers in jail. Then proceed to scapegoat a couple of low level players with a couple years in the Condo Prison, while the criminals get off Scott-free, er...Trump-free, including the big Cheeto himself.

No, at this point, I'm pretty skeptical. I'm too exhausted from all this drama. And Hillary STILL won't be our president. I'll be gettin' back to studying my "Indivisible Manifesto" now.

88. the real problem is...

...EVEN IF this all gains traction and *rump is compromised, there is no constitutional mechanism for undoing or redoing an election. despite a rigged election the best we can hope for constitutionally is pence, and i don't believe the repubs would mind that at all. IF there is sufficient evidence to indicate the election was invalid, clinton should be president, but constitutionally that can't happen, ergo, constitutional crisis. (as an aside, there is also no telling yet if congressional elections were "hacked" in some way and therefore if the republican majorities are valid.)

Revolutions are fought on empty bellies. Too many people are content with the free bread and circuses to want to upset the applecart. In a way we are a victim of our own success.
