The following story comes from sources in the Trump transition team. There is only limited confirmation but as the story includes physical threats against those who publish it, you will of course see it on VT.
The straw has broken the camel’s back.
Four days ago, the FBI presented President Trump the preliminary finding in relation to his accusations of millions of illegal votes having been cast; the FBI’s finding includes the following:
- There was substantial illegal activity on an unprecedented scale compared to any election, anywhere at any time
- Preliminary statistical analysis indicates patterns of massive fraud targeting electoral swing states. Patterns indicate methodologies likely to include hacking of both open and closed computer systems and upto 3 millions votes flipped.
- Preliminary evaluation of patterns shows a highly sophisticated attempt to create plausible ‘electoral swings’ that under closer scrutiny are revealed to irregularities.
The FBI also pointed out that Congress was more suited to investigating this matter than the FBI and they were prepared to meet with the Joint House & Senate Judiciary Committees to answer questions about these findings. Rumour has it that Steve Bannon told FBI Director James Comey that the FBI, in the interests of national security and on the basis of a classified Executive Order was not allowed to speak to Congress.
The Trump presidency would end that minute.
If such a document exists and based on what we know about Comey, he would not have left without something in writing, this is the single most dangerous document since the Zimmerman Telegram in 1917 or perhaps the Balfour Declaration a year earlier.
When VT picked up the story from PressTV, early on we were hacked twice and have received other warnings that has lead us to publishing the information we have, which is incomplete.
Trump’s response to the FBI’s preliminary finding was to go on TV and attempt some damage control:
President Trump in a new interview seemingly defends his baseless claims of widespread voter fraud in the 2016 election, maintaining that illegal immigrants and “dead people” around the U.S. were registered to vote.
“Well, many people have come out and said I am right, you know that,” Trump told Fox News’s Bill O’Reilly in an interview slated to air Sunday.
When O’Reilly notes that Trump needs data to back up his claim that three million undocumented immigrants voted in the election, Trump insisted “a bad situation” exists regarding voter fraud.
“Let me just tell you — when you see illegals, people that are not citizens and they are on registration rolls … look, Bill, we can be babies, but you take a look at the registration, you have illegals, you have dead people, you have this, it’s really a bad situation. It’s really bad.”
Trump threatened last month to launch “a major investigation” into voter fraud in order to “strengthen up voting procedures,” though the White House has since not provided details on such an effort.
“I will be asking for a major investigation into VOTER FRAUD, including those registered to vote in two states, those who are illegal and….even, those registered to vote who are dead (and many for a long time),” Trump wrote last month.
“Depending on results, we will strengthen up voting procedures!” he added at the time.
What can be seen from this is the aftermath of Trump’s meltdown. Normally, Trump can simply walk away from wild claims, his 1.5 million inauguration attendance figure. I got a call the night before from DC inviting me to the inauguration, the group included the Trump nominee for Secretary of the Interior. I asked about rooms, they said it wouldn’t be a problem though Trump claimed DC was “overbooked 413%.”
Let’s take a minute or two on this issue, lying about the inauguration, where a president addressed the CIA and told a real whopper. You can be assured when they garner critical intelligence, they will remember Trump and his wild story about the massive crowds at the inauguration, and make reach a decision in a process I once too part in. They will tell him nothing.
Like with the OJ trial, if Trump lied here, everything else is a lie. We don’t have to go far to “slam dunk” Trump. Here are the DC hotel occupancy rates typically, from 2014. (http://www.downtowndc.org/reports/2q-2014-hotel-market-update)
YTD occupancy for all D.C. hotels was slightly down from 77.9% in 2013 to 77.7% in June 2014. YTD DowntownDC BID hotel occupancy decreased from 81% in June 2013 to 78.8% in June 2014.
D.C. hotel occupancy in the second quarter of 2014 also declined slightly compared to the second quarter of 2013. D.C. hotel room occupancy was 85.3 % in the second quarter of 2014 compared to 85.4% in in the second quarter of 2013. DowntownDC BID hotel occupancy fell from 88.7% in the second quarter of 2013 to 85.5% in the second quarter of 2014.
June 2014 D.C. hotel occupancy for all of D.C. was 83%, down slightly from 83.6% in June 2013. DowntownDC BID area hotel occupancy was 82.8% in June 2014, down from 87.2% in June 2013.

Now here is what I learned when only one day in advance I went to www.hotels.com, the preeminent online booking site and checked rates and occupancy for my own plans:
All major hotels had rooms, rates were discounted and I was offered free tickets from the GOP to 5 separate inauguration balls along with thousands of other party faithful who were called and asked to bolster crowds.
There is a reason we have chosen to finish off with what we can prove, inexorably, and what it says about Trump and those like Comey that serve him at the cost of their loyalty to the United States, their religious affiliations and their personal moral codes, such as they might be.
And so it goes…
