Russian translator at Donald Trump Jr. meeting worked with then FBI Director Robert Mueller and State Department

Posted on Updated on

 

  • Russian translator, Anatoli Samochornov, worked with the State Department and the FBI during Robert Mueller’s tenure as Director of the Bureau, according to documents obtained by True Pundit.

 

( TruePundit ) The Russian translator at the Trump Tower meeting with Donald Trump Jr. worked with the State Department and the FBI during Robert Mueller’s tenure as Director of the Bureau, according to documents obtained by True Pundit.

Mueller, the former FBI director, is currently the United States Special Counsel investigating President Donald Trump’s administration and White House aides for alleged connections to supposed Russian factions. While Big Media has tried to portray Trump’s eldest son, Donald Jr., as having orchestrated a clandestine meeting with the Russians to attempt to find dirt on Hillary Clinton, few can seem to explain how a person linked to the FBI and Mueller, who was calling the shots for the Bureau at the time, ended up at the very same Trump Tower sit down.

Mueller’s office did not return calls for comment. The translator, Anatoli Samochornov, who also worked for the US State Department until recently, could not be reached for comment either. Former FBI officials with knowledge of the meeting and possible other FBI work performed by Samochornov refused to go on the record.

 

 

Samochornov has worked as an intelligence attache and translator for the United States in varying capacities for years. In 2010, while Mueller was FBI Director, Samochornov worked with the head of the New York FBI field office, FBI Acting Special Agent in Charge Lauren Anderson. Anderson worked with Samochornov in his role as “Program Officer” tor the State Department’s International Visitor & leadership program.

 

 

Anderson, who is now retired from the FBI, could not be reached for comment, although she has been quoted in the New York Times applauding ex-FBI boss James Comey’s alleged diligent note taking for his alleged memos compiled against President Trump. Anderson worked high profile espionage cases in Europe, Russia, France, and western Africa for the Bureau and ran the global terrorism program of the FBI’s New York Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) before her recent retirement, FBI sources said.

ACTNG FBI DIRECTOR ANDREW McCABE UNDER FED INVESTIGATION FOR VIOLATING HATCH ACT

Posted on

 

Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe is under federal investigation. McCabe campaigned for his Democrat wife Jill during 2015 state senate election in Virginia. McCabe violated the Hatch Act which prohibits FBI agents campaigning in partisan races.

 

Via Circa News:

 Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe is being investigated by the Office of U.S. Special Counsel for violating The Hatch Act that prohibits FBI agents from campaigning in partisan races.

The Office of U.S. Special Counsel, the government’s main whistleblower agency, is investigating whether FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s activities supporting his wife Jill’s Democratic campaign for Virginia state senate in 2015 violated the Hatch Act’s prohibition against FBI agents campaigning in partisan races.

The Hatch Act prohibits FBI employees from engaging “in political activity in concert with a political party, a candidate for partisan political office, or a partisan political group.”

It defines prohibited political activity as “any activity directed at the success or failure of a partisan group or candidate in a partisan election.”

 

Newsweek reported:

concerns came after revelations by media outlets, including The Wall Street Journal, that a political action committee affiliated with Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, who has ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton, contributed almost $500,000 to the 2015 Virginia state Senate campaign of McCabe’s wife, Jill McCabe. (She lost the election.) She also received $207,788 from the Virginia Democratic Party, which is connected to McAuliffe, a Democrat.

BERNIE SANDERS BLAMES TRUMP ON HIS WIFE’S $10 MILLION BANK FRAUD INVESTIGATION BY FBI

Posted on

  • Bernie Sanders: “I’m a candidate for the President of the United States, Donald Trump’s campaign manager and vice chairman of the Republican party of Vermont launched this investigation”

 

So testy! Bernie and Jane Sanders are under FBI investigation for suspicion of $10 million bank fraud that resulted to bankruptcy and permanent shut down of tiny Burlington College.

During CNN interview with Erin Burnett, the anti-greed millionaire got testy when asked if his wife is under FBI investigation. He also blamed Donald Trump

Erin Burnett: “We understand your wife has hired a lawyer to represent her in a possible probe in a land deal that fell apart; this was back when she was president of Burlington College…”

Erin Burnett: “I just want to ask you, do you know she’s under FBI investigation?”

Sanders: “Excuse me! My wife is about the most honest person I know. When she came to that college, it was failing financially, academically. When she left it, it was in better shape than it had ever been.

Five years later just at the moment coincidentally no doubt when I’m a candidate for the President of the United States, Donald Trump’s campaign manager and vice chairman of the Republican party of Vermont launched this investigation.”

Sanders continued to play the victim, claiming to ‘go after people’s wives is pathetic’.

Burnett press Bernie Sanders AGAIN asking him if his wife is indeed under FBI investigation and he refused to answer her and again played victim.

Jane Sanders is former President of Burlington College, which became bankrupt and got shut down thanks to huge bank loan she took for the college hoping donors and increase number of students will pay for the $10 million debt. She’s accused of distorting donor levels in a 2010 loan application for $10 million from People’s United Bank to purchase 33 acres of land for the school. According to Politico, prosecutors might also be looking into allegations that Sen. Sanders’ office inappropriately urged the bank to approve the loan.

Jane Sanders also collected approximately a $200,000 severance package. after she resigned from the college.

 

 

SECRET FBI MEMOS CLAIM RUSSIA-FLYNN PROBE A POLITICAL PAYBACK OVER ROBYN GRITZ CASE AGAINST ANDREW McCABE

Posted on Updated on

 

Did the FBI retaliate against Michael Flynn by launching Russia probe?

  • As soon as Gritz revealed to the FBI that Flynn and other top federal figures had written letters to support her case and likely would be called as witnesses, the bureau dispatched a lawyer to try to block the evidence from being included in the EEO case, documents show.

WATCH| Secret memos show Trump adviser roiled bureau by intervening in agent’s discrimination case before he was targeted in Russia case.

The FBI launched a criminal probe against former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn two years after the retired Army general roiled the bureau’s leadership by intervening on behalf of a decorated counterterrorism agent who accused now-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe and other top officials of sexual discrimination, according to documents and interviews.

Flynn’s intervention on behalf of Supervisory Special Agent Robyn Gritz was highly unusual, and included a letter in 2014 on his official Pentagon stationary, a public interview in 2015 supporting Gritz’s case and an offer to testify on her behalf. His offer put him as a hostile witness in a case against McCabe, who was soaring through the bureau’s leadership ranks.

 

….Documents and memos obtained by Circa detail how Flynn and other top officials at other government agencies in 2014 and 2015 came to intervene in the EEOC case of Gritz, who rose over two decades to a supervisory special agent inside the FBI on the strength of her counterterrorism work.

For nearly a decade, Gritz worked with the intelligence community to help successfully track down global terrorists or rescue Western hostages, and was even occasionally called upon to personally brief then-Director Robert Mueller on sensitive cases like the disappearance of a retired agent Robert Levinson inside Iran, memos show.

But her career took a sudden downward turn after she went to work under McCabe and his leadership team in 2012, resulting in her first negative rating after years of outstanding performance reviews. She filed an EEOC complain inside the FBI against a handful of bureau executives in 2012, alleging her career was being derailed by sexual discrimination.

….As soon as Gritz revealed to the FBI that Flynn and other top federal figures had written letters to support her case and likely would be called as witnesses, the bureau dispatched a lawyer to try to block the evidence from being included in the EEO case, documents show.

OUCH! CNN CORRECTS OWN FAKE HEADLINE, ‘COMEY EXPECTED TO REFUTE TRUMP,’ AFTER JAMES COMEY VINDICATES PRESIDENT

Posted on Updated on

CNN

 

CNN has no choice but to correct its own fake headline, “Comey expected to refute Trump,” after former FBI director released his pre-hearing statement Wednesday, vindicating President Trump’s claim Comey told him three times he was not under investigation.

According to CNN and ABC News,   Comey is reportedly set to testify he NEVER told Trump that he was not under investigation in connection with Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Today, CNN issued a correction to its initial report after James Comey released his statement on Wednesday backing up Trump’s story that he was not under investigation.

CNN’s correction below:

CORRECTION AND UPDATE: This article was published before Comey released his prepared opening statement. The article and headline have been corrected to reflect that Comey does not directly dispute that Trump was told multiple times he was not under investigation in his prepared testimony released after this story was published

An earlier version of this story said that Comey would dispute Trump’s interpretation of their conversations. But based on his prepared remarks, Comey outlines three conversations with the President in which he told Trump he was not personally under investigation.

 

Trump’s statement which CNN and the rest of liberal media labeled as a lie:

“While I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation, I nevertheless concur with the judgment of the Department of Justice that you are not able to effectively lead the Bureau,” Trump wrote to Comey in the May 9 letter in which he fired him.

 

 

JAMES COMEY ‘RELUCTANT TO TELL PUBLIC FBI, DOJ DON’T HAVE A CASE ON TRUMP’ DESPITE OF PRESIDENT’S REPEATED PLEA

  • James Comey: I did not tell the President that the FBI and the Department of Justice had been reluctant to make public statements that we did not have an open case on President Trump for a number of reasons, most importantly because it would create a duty to correct, should that change.

 

The pathetic hype about former FBI Director James Comey testimony before Congress tomorrow on Trump-Russia hoax becomes a deflated nothing after reading his prepared speech  Wednesday.

One thing struck me reading the speech is how Comey assured Trump many times he’s not under investigation and how reluctant Comey was making this known to public even after President Trump repeatedly told him “to get that fact out.”

 

  • Prior to the January 6 meeting, I discussed with the FBI’s leadership team whether I should be prepared to assure President-Elect Trump that we were not investigating him personally. That was true; we did not have an open counter-intelligence case on him.
  • We had told those Congressional leaders that we were not personally investigating President Trump. I reminded him I had previously told him that. He repeatedly told me, “We need to get that fact out.” (I did not tell the President that the FBI and the Department of Justice had been reluctant to make public statements that we did not have an open case on President Trump for a number of reasons, most importantly because it would create a duty to correct, should that change.)

 

Another thing you would notice after reading his pre-hearing speech, there’s still no proof of Russia-Trump collusion.
