FSB chief, Sergei Naryshkin

Senior Editor’s note There are two subjects of discussion.  Top among them is eliminating anyone who can testify as to the two dossiers, both of which could be independently confirmed.  Trump was burned in Moscow and is a “KGB Mole.”

We know Mike Flynn was burned in Moscow and Trump knew it.  We believe Russia asked Trump to appoint Flynn.  He was burned in 2015 at an RT dinner and afterward, his son in attendance along with friends of ours, fellow journalists and diplomats in Russia.

They described his performance, his ranting against America in particular and his hand out asking for cash.  He took $55k and asked for much more.  We suspect he was promised the moon.  The FSB believed they owned Flynn and could use him to steer Trump who they believe is unstable and unfocused.

I was subjected to an FBI interview as part of this investigation.  It was my impression they were simply doing their job.

Now it comes down to where we are now, with Russia and the US at odds.  Did Russia meet with Donald Jr., Manfort, Page and others about rigging the US election.  The evidence is in and admissions made and a Flynn plea.  The charges might well have been much more serious.

What we are looking today is Naryshkin and Pompeo meeting.  Pompeo is hardly a CIA director, he is a minor DC thug and public relations guy.  He is hugely out of his depth as is so often the case with CIA directors.  Assume the CIA isn’t American at all, not since Reagan anyway, and you begin to understand.

The second issue, the one we promised, is this.  They, Pompeo for Trump and Naryshkin and “getting their stories straight.”  Putin is a master spy.  He would have never, by my estimation, authorized anyone to meet with a pack of greedy morons to rig an American election but it seems it happened anyway.

Evidence indicates that Trump knowingly had operatives meet with a foreign intelligence agency to rig an American election.  He would do it, we all know it, he has no sense.  Those around him are idiots as well, gangsters and fools.  They did it, they are guilty, this is treason, a constitutional crisis, and they have to be arrested and imprisoned or the whole charade of our pretend government will unravel.

What some of us also see is the hand of Putin’s enemies, the Turkish and Russian/Khazar “oligarchs,” read “mob bosses” that have been behind Trump since 1982 when Roy Cohn, real mob boss and Trump mentor, introduced him around as an “idiot on the make” for helping launder drug cash.

Less than a decade later, the Soviet Union was kaput, the Soviet prison emptied and the worst of them heading to the US, coffers loaded with cash from the Soviet Commercial Banks of Belarus, Ukraine and Leningrad.  This was a CIA operation begun in Poland in 1990, breaking into the KGB by smuggling American cigarettes.  After that Soviet bankers were invited to the US and burned.

A deal to loot the Soviet Union was set up with help of Senator’s Kennedy and Sarbanes, banking capabilities created, and Trump was one of the outlets for an initial tranch of $320m of stolen cash.   The meeting was at the Pierre setting it up.  Guess who sat next to Senator Sarbanes at that meeting?


How it began, getting rid of the Soviet Union, was the holy grail of the CIA for decades.  That it was done with political hacks and has backfired with them taking over us is in reality “high humor.”

But is it Russia or is it Russian born criminals who represent not Israel but a massive crime syndicate that blends right in with Wall Street, the oil and defense companies and Sheldon Adelson’s Israeli congress?

Are you getting the picture?  We began with next to no American government at all after two rigged Bush 43 elections.  If Russia really took over, if Putin was really running America, things would start working better.

Instead, Trump is burning America down while the 1% is being handed the keys.  No, our oversimplistic views of who is what don’t fit.  Our hope here, and listen carefully, is if John Kerry steps in.  This seems to be the plan and Kerry is just dirty enough that congress loves him. Byden does not have the gravitas.

[ Editor’s Note: This was quite a curve ball here, having a small parade of top Russian Intel people flying to Washington to pow wow with the CIA. Even Congress wanting to know what was going on, is limited from doing so, as it is a sieve when it comes to leaks.

What they could have been discussing is anyone’s guess as there would be so much to talk about, including the possibility of laying out that if the US continued sanctioning Russian government officials, Moscow would have to start releasing its treasure trove of US “interfering in elections” all over the world.

Insiders know that is one of the CIA’s main jobs, and all the Congressional old timers know it, too. None of this would ever be admitted to, of course. But when Trump converted his new list of sanctions targets into a “potential list” as a “deterrent”, that was a strong hint that some rethinking might have gone on.

Putin had already publicly signaled that there would be a strong response to new sanctions, and quickly. This which was quite a break from the past where Moscow has always carefully weighed the pros and cons of taking reciprocal action, showing concern of not wanting to get into a spiraling down of relations via an endless cycle of sanctions and counter sanctions.

Pompeo brushed off any claims of the Russians having the US over a barrel,  “while Russia remains an adversary, we would put American lives at greater risk if we ignored opportunities to work with the Russian services in the fight against terrorism.”

And we must not forget that the US supplied Russian Intel with the material to breakup the St. Petersburg attack, for which Putin was quick to say thank you. Pompeo also stated that neither side was ever shy about discussing its difficulties with the other.

We will have to wait for some leaks to appear (unlikely) to know more, and then have to weigh whether they are fake or real leaks, another part of the game Jim W. Dean ]

The heads of three Russian intelligence agencies traveled to the United States to meet with CIA Director Mike Pompeo, amid a series of political rifts between the two sides over US President Donald Trump’s alleged collusion with Russian officials and Washington’s renewal of sanctions against Moscow.

The Russian embassy in the US confirmed Tuesday that Sergei Naryshkin, head of Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service (FIS), was in the US to discuss the fight on terrorism with Pompeo.

CIA director Mike Pompeo

It has now been revealed in a report by The Washington Post that accompanying Naryshkin during the trip were two other chiefs — Alexander Bortnikov, director of the Federal Security Service (FSB), and Colonel General Igor Korobov, chief of the Russian General Staff’s Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU).

According to the Post, Bortnikov also met with the CIA chief but it was not clear which American officials Korobov had met with.

A senior US intelligence official in Moscow also headed back to Washington to partake in the meetings, an unnamed US government source familiar with the matter told the paper.

The encounters raised concern among some US politicians, who interpreted them as signs of the Trump administration’s willingness to work with Moscow despite concerns at home about the government of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s alleged interference in the 2016 US presidential election.

While the meetings between Russian and American spymasters are not unheard of, current and former US officials told the Post that this particular trip by so many heads of Russian intelligence agencies was unprecedented.

Pompeo defends meeting

After facing heavy criticism from Democrats, specially Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer who said “there was something untoward” in the meetings, Pompeo said Thursday that the meetings were nothing out of the ordinary.

“While Russia remains an adversary, we would put American lives at greater risk if we ignored opportunities to work with the Russian services in the fight against terrorism,” Pompeo said. “We cover very difficult subjects in which American and Russian interests do not align,” he added.

Schumer had specifically asked for more details about Naryshkin, who is on Washington’s sanctions list, and that whether the trip had anything to do with the Trump administration’s refusal this week to impose new sanctions against Russia.

The Trump White House had until Monday to implement a sanctions bill against Moscow but instead informed lawmakers that the legislation, which was passed last year, was already “serving as a deterrent.”

The trip also came days before Washington released a list of 114 Russian politicians and 96 “oligarchs” close to the Kremlin upon a request by Congress. Bortnikov is among the sanctioned senior Russian officials.

US media did not rule out a possible connection between the meeting and Washington’s decision to shelve the sanctions bill for the near future.

  1. I had to postpone checking out VT for a couple of days. And then, when I check in again, the story line is totally changed. What happened? And where is Ian Greenhalgh? Of course we knew all the time that the V in VT may also stands for “virtual” – not fake news, no not at all – but rather news that “could” be true, but changes as the occasion arises. In fact, we always have to keep in mind that news deals with much more than the fleeting present and its relation to the partially obscured past, but also with its extrapolation into the unknown future. At any rate, I still like VT because of its ability to challenge. And challenge is exactly what we need, lest we fall asleep.

  2. “…or the whole charade of our pretend government will unravel.” – GD

    We can only hope that it happens, but it seems doubtful since 37 years of Bush I (de facto president for most of Reagan’s two terms), Clinton, Bush II, and Obama has not woken up the vast majority to the fact the US lacks a representative government. Maybe we are too stupid to live?

  3. “…the two dossiers, both of which could be independently confirmed”

    I read an article right here at VT on Nov 20, detailing how the Steele dossier could NOT be confirmed…So which is it? I haven’t seen Trump do anything that could be considered even remotely favourable for Russia. However, nearly everything he’s done so far has been for the benefit of Israel, even though these actions have further tarnished America’s already terrible reputation with the rest of the world…

  4. What if an agreement has been reached on a higher level, and this is a meeting to get the stories straight?

  5. Well, I hope we had someone smarter than Pompeo calling the shots. Regardless of relations, unqualified people conducting a meeting like this is haphazard.
    Schumer is well known in NY as someone who got to their position by being a camera hog. He and Trump have this in common, where it becomes standard procedure to take credit where no credit is due. Sure it’s a component of the process, but if used as primary methodology qualifications become secondary. It then just becomes, who you know. Schumer should be nervous.

    • I understand this, and I see Pompeo like I see Pruitt, Devos, a whole bunch of the judges appointed, and nearly every other cabinet appointment,… a take over of the fabulously wealthy , and even more than that, a group who has little value assigned to knowledge or wisdom. I have met plumbers who are licensed and everything they touch leaks, they are horrible at fixing, but great at obtaining contracts. Maybe Tillerson as State dept head can be seen as “honesty” or oil’s ascension to full control of foreign policy, but he is not fixing something, he is just breaking it a different way, like Pompeo. Unqualified.

  6. Like Jim had stated. Maybe the Russian Intelligence officials were there to tell their American counterparts… if you do this(more sanctions) we can release info to the public…fill in the blank with your favorite real conspiracies: Dresden, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, JFK, RFK, MLK, JFK Jr., Gulf of Tonkin, Moon Landing(s), Watergate, Iran Hostage situ(both), Bin Laden(Tim Osman), Iran Contra, Waco, Ruby Ridge, Murrah bombing, 9/11 etc. etc. etc.
