Opinion| There’s been some major developments in the case of Russian collusion with high level American politicians over the past couple of weeks.
The significance isn’t so much because of the facts – we’ve had those for a long time – but because of who is asserting those facts at this time.
Importantly, investigative journalist John Solomon is as well read into the events as anyone and, coupled with the restraint he has shown in his reporting, as well as his access to the highest levels of the executive branch, Solomon brings a level of credibility to finally flipping the script on the real source of Russian collusion, that those of us toiling in anonymity and labeled fake news welcome.
What you’re about to read has been circulating in the so-called fake news alt-right media for more than 2 years and, in many cases, for much longer than that. But we’ve been censored, suspended, and deplatformed while the so-called mainstream media carried Hillary Clinton’s, Barack Obama’s, and the Deep State’s water hiding their criminal actions.
Solomon’s reporting should bring all of this into the sunlight.
Let’s start with the seriously underpublicized facts that both the House and Senate investigative committees have cleared Donald Trump of Russian collusion.
This came as no surprise to any of us who followed both investigations closely, but only those who followed closely. You’d never know it from the reporting in the mainstream media.
If you’ve only gotten your news from the mainstream media, you’d also never know that there’s a fairly hard to refute trail pointing to Russian collusion with the other major party candidate in the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton.
Solomon has apparently gotten the clearance to go public with this part of the story.
As secretary of State, Hillary Clinton worked with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and then-President Dmitri Medvedev, to create U.S. technology partnerships with Moscow’s version of Silicon Valley, a sprawling high-tech campus known as Skolkovo.
Assistant Special Agent in Charge Lucia Ziobro of the FBI’s Boston Division wrote an Op-Ed warning of the potential for the Skolkovo to blow up in our faces by allowing Russian to achieve technology transfers in a way that previously could only be accomplished through espionage:
The Skolkovo “Foundation may be a means for the Russian government to access our nation’s sensitive or classified research development facilities and dual-use technologies with military and commercial application.”
Agent Ziobro was rightly concerned that the deal transferring technology to Skolkovo, that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama had agreed to, would allow the Russians to conduct clandestine industrial espionage on a much larger scale and more efficiently than before.
The warnings were ignored.
As were the warnings of FBI informant William Campbell who had presented the FBI with written evidence that Putin wanted to buy Uranium One as part of a strategy to obtain monopolistic domination of the global uranium markets. Imagine the leverage this would give Putin over the U.S.
Why would then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton agree to such seemingly one-sided deals? Money, lots of it. To her and Bill, and to their family foundation.
Then when internal polling showed Hillary’s presidential campaign was failing, the campaign, along with the DNC, began funding a smear operation against Donald Trump by calling in some chits from Russian.
Glenn Simpson’s Fusion GPS research firm was secretly hired by the Clinton campaign and Democratic Party through their law firm, Perkins Coie.
We knew that but then Solomon adds this finding that the mainstream media has assiduously avoided telling us:
Congressional investigators have painstakingly pieced together evidence that shows the Clinton research project had extensive contact with Russians.
Solomon has had direct contact with President Trump. With William Barr scheduled to be confirmed as the Attorney General later this week, and the Mueller investigation reportedly wrapping up, we might finally be looking at Team Trump going on the offensive.
