Hillary Clinton Campaign Pays $113,000 FEC Fine in Admission of Guilt for Producing Steele Dossier — Now Hopes Media Will Assist Them in Killing the Story

Published April 4, 2022

The DNC and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign agreed to pay $113,000 to settle a Federal Election Commission investigation into whether they violated campaign finance law.

That is according to documents sent Tuesday to the Coolidge Reagan Foundation, which had filed an administrative complaint in 2018 accusing the Democrats of misreporting payments made to a law firm during the 2016 campaign to obscure the spending – Via Huffington Post.

Kash Patel, the former National Security Council Senior Director of Counterterrorism, and the lead investigator for Rep. Devin Nunes in exposing the FBI’s involvement in the debunked Trump-Russia dossier, says Hillary Clinton and the DNC now hope this massive scandal will all just go away.

Of course, they are counting on the fake news mainstream media in closing the curtains on this massive fraud they perpetrated on the American public.

The Epoch Times reported:

The lead investigator for the House Intelligence Committee’s 2018 probe into the FBI’s investigation of alleged Trump–Russia collusion, Kash Patel, said the fact that the Hillary Clinton campaign is paying a penalty to Federal Election Commission (FEC) is an admittance of guilt. Clinton and DNC are doing so to bury the narrative and prevent more media coverage of these illegal activities, said Patel.

“I think the public sees what that is. It’s their way of burying the narrative, because if they contested what happens, more media coverage, more people start looking into these things,” Patel said.

“So the Hillary Clinton campaign is not contesting it, they’re paying the fine. It’s basically admitting that they did this and they’re out is: ‘we just don’t want a protracted legal deal, as if the Hillary Clinton campaign and DNC ever shied away from taking something or someone to court,” Patel added.

Clinton’s campaign and the DNC agreed to pay a combined $113,000 to the FEC, according to documents made public on March 30, after the commission found probable cause that the entities violated federal law by describing payments that ultimately went to the Fusion GPS research group as going toward legal services and consulting.

Trump Demands His Reputation Back after FEC Fines Hillary, DNC over Russia Collusion Hoax


Roberto Wakerell-Cruz

Former President Donald Trump released a statement following the FEC’s announcement that the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC violated election rules in 2016 to “to try and take down and illegally destroy your favorite President, me.”

Trump wrote in the statement, which was released on Thursday: “Breaking News: Wow! Just out that the 2016 Clinton Campaign and the DNC paid the FEC today for violating the law by failing to disclose that their payments for ‘legal advice and services’ to law firm Perkins Coie was, in fact, a guise to hire numerous companies, all of whom are now named Defendants in my lawsuit, to try and take down and illegally destroy your favorite President, me.”

He continued: “This was done to create, as I have stated many times, and is now confirmed, a Hoax funded by the DNC and the Clinton Campaign. This corruption is only beginning to be revealed, is un-American, and must never be allowed to happen again. Where do I go to get my reputation back?”

The FEC said on Wednesday that the DNC and Clinton both violated rules on describing payments that were funneled through their law firm to the opposition research firm Fusion GPS.

Between the two entities, a combined $1,024,407.97 was paid to law firm Perkins Coie for Fusion GPS’ information, with the party and campaign claiming that the payment was for legal services, not opposition research.

The DNC’s $849,407.97 and the Clinton campaign’s $175,000 payments reportedly covered Fusion GPS’ opposition research on the dossier.

The memo from the FEC reportedly said that both the campaign and the party claimed they were correct in saying their payments went to “legal advice and services” because it was Perkins Coie that hired Fusion GPS.

The agency has stated that the law is clear, and that it was violated.

“Solely for the purpose of settling this matter expeditiously and to avoid further legal costs, respondent[s] does not concede, but will not further contest the commission’s finding of probable cause to proceed” with the probe, said the FEC.

The FEC said in a memo sent to the Coolidge Reagan Foundation, which filed their complaint more than three years ago, that they fined the Clinton campaign treasurer $8,000, and the DNC’s treasurer $105,000. The memo is set to be released to the public next month.

The complaint over Hillary’s fake dossier, which was never denied by both camps, was filed by the Coolidge Reagan Foundation three years ago. Democrats and leftist media used the fake dossier to accuse the Trump administration of collaborating with foreign agents to influence the 2016 presidential election, which saw Trump as the victor.

But it was the Clinton campaign that paid for the dossier to be created, which was then used to smear Trump, through law firm Perkins Coie.

FEC Fines DNC and Hillary Clinton For Lying About Funding of Debunked Russia Dossier

Cristina Laila
March 30, 2022

The Federal Election Commission (FEC) fined the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign for lying about funding the fake Russia dossier.

Recall, Hillary Clinton’s camp and the DNC were hit with two lawsuits back in 2017 and 2018.

An FEC complaint was filed in October 2017 against the Clinton campaign and the DNC for violating campaign finance law because they failed to disclose payments for the Russian Dossier.

In 2018, Hillary Clinton and the DNC were accused of using state chapters as strawmen to launder $84 million in an effort to evade campaign donation limits and the Federal Election Commission ignored complaints exposing this corruption.

The FEC fined Clinton and said her campaign violated the rules because they failed to disclose payments funneled to Fusion GPS through DNC law firm Perkins Coie.

The Washington Examiner reported:

The Federal Election Commission has fined the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign for lying about the funding of the infamous, and discredited, Russian “dossier” used in a smear attempt against Donald Trump weeks before he shocked the world with his 2016 presidential victory.

The election agency said that Clinton and the DNC violated strict rules on describing expenditures of payments funneled to the opposition research firm Fusion GPS through their law firm.

A combined $1,024,407.97 was paid by the treasurers of the DNC and Clinton campaign to law firm Perkins Coie for Fusion GPS’s information, and the party and campaign hid the reason, claiming it was for legal services, not opposition research.

Instead, the DNC’s $849,407.97 and the Clinton campaign’s $175,000 covered Fusion GPS’s opposition research on the dossier, a basis for the so-called “Russia hoax” that dogged Trump’s first term.

The memo said that the Clinton campaign and DNC argued that they were correct in describing their payment as for “legal advice and services” because it was Perkins Coie that hired Fusion GPS. But the agency said the law is clear and was violated.

It added that neither the campaign nor the party conceded to lying but won’t contest the finding. “Solely for the purpose of settling this matter expeditiously and to avoid further legal costs, respondent[s] does not concede, but will not further contest the commission’s finding of probable cause to proceed” with the probe, said the FEC.

The FEC, in a memo to the Coolidge Reagan Foundation, which filed its complaint over three years ago, said it fined Clinton’s treasurer $8,000 and the DNC’s treasurer $105,000.

The memo, shared with Secrets, is to be made public in a month.

New Democrat Plan for Two Time Loser Hillary Clinton Sparks Further Speculation of 2024 Presidential Run

Jack Davis, The Western Journal
February 12th, 2022

Hillary Clinton will step out into the political spotlight next week during the convention of the New York Democratic Party, according to a report.

The report from CNBC did not say when Clinton was expected to speak as Empire State Democrats gather in Manhattan, and was based on sources that were not named.

“She’s beloved by the mainstream members of the Democratic Party and her popularity is likely higher than that of President [Joe] Biden. It’s good for her because it keeps her relevant and her appearance is likely meant to galvanize the party and the audience,” one source said.

Chris Melnyczuk, chief of staff for party chair Jay Jacobs, would neither confirm nor deny Clinton’s participation.

“We’ve reached out to a number of people to speak and, you know, we’re waiting back on confirmation from a number of people. So there are a few things in the works,” he said.

Clinton, 74, endorsed former Gov. Andrew Cuomo when she appeared at the party’s 2018 convention. The 2016 Democratic Party candidate for president represented New York in the U.S. Senate prior to serving as secretary of state in the Obama administration.

In a recent interview on WABC that was reported by the New York Post, political commentator Dick Morris said a rematch of the 2016 contest between Clinton and former President Donald Trump is possible.

“There’s a good chance of it,” he said.

“Hillary has set up a brilliant, brilliant strategy that nobody else is able to do.”

​”She has set up a zero-sum game where the worse [Biden] does, the better she does, because she’s positioned herself as the Democratic alternative to Biden. Not just to Biden, but to the extreme left in the Democratic Party,” Morris said.

Last month, an Op-Ed in The Wall Street Journal talked up a Clinton run for the White House in 2024.

“A perfect storm in the Democratic Party is making a once-unfathomable scenario plausible: a political comeback for Hillary Clinton in 2024,” Doug Schoen and Andrew Stein mused.

“Several circumstances — President Biden’s low approval rating, doubts over his capacity to run for re-election at 82, Vice President Kamala Harris’s unpopularity, and the absence of another strong Democrat to lead the ticket in 2024 — have created a leadership vacuum in the party, which Mrs. Clinton viably could fill,” they wrote.

Stein and Schoen posited that Clinton would jump at the chance to run for president again and that the Democratic Party is sinking lower with every Biden administration failure.

“Given the likelihood that Democrats will lose control of Congress in 2022, we can anticipate that Mrs. Clinton will begin shortly after the midterms to position herself as an experienced candidate capable of leading Democrats on a new and more successful path,” the wrote, adding that her agenda “could show that Mrs. Clinton is the only credible alternative to Mr. Biden, Ms. Harris, and the entire Democratic Party establishment.”

They closed the piece with words Democrats might never have expected to read: “If Democrats want a fighting chance at winning the presidency in 2024, Mrs. Clinton is likely their best option.”

Better Late Than Never! CNN Talking Head: “How Is It That Bill Clinton Hasn’t Been Cancelled?”

Steve Watson,
August 20th, 2020

A moment of clarity broke through the veil of bullshit on CNN programming this week when a talking head interrupted vomit-inducing praise for Bill Clinton by asking how on earth one of the biggest ‘violators’ of leftist ‘rules’ hasn’t been cancelled.

The panel of brown-nosing CNN heads gushed about how much they were looking forward to hearing Clinton speaking at the second night of the DNC.

Van Jones called Clinton “The big dog”, adding “no matter what you say, Bill Clinton always brings it home.”

“Bill Clinton knows how to move the whole crowd,” Jones proclaimed, bizarrely adding that Clinton has a “kind of working class hero upbringing.”

“Bill Clinton is going to be bringing it on the economy,” former Democratic Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm greasily added, as Jones encouraged her to “preach.”

And that is when the veil lifted momentarily as Scott Jennings interjected to declare “I have to say, I am dumbfounded by this.”

“How is it that Bill Clinton has not been cancelled by the Democratic — how has he survived all of these waves of cancellation, when he’s been one of the biggest violators of these rules all these years?” Jennings added, clearly referring to Clinton’s documented sexual deviancy.

Editors Note: It appears the actual live footage has been scrubbed from youtube, but you can watch via mrctv link bellow

https://www.mrctv.org/videos/cnns-scott-jennings-why-hasnt-bill-clinton-been-canceled

“We talked about the use of character to try to say Donald Trump is a man of low character, Joe Biden is … He’s fair game on that,” Jennings added.

“That’s totally fine. So you’re going to say that in one breath and then say, ‘Character matters. Ladies and gentlemen, Bill Clinton.’ Does this make sense to anyone? If you want Republicans to vote for Joe Biden, having Bill Clinton talk about character —” Jennings asserted, noting the irony.

Granholm attempted to argue that Clinton had been held to account for his indiscretions “decades ago,” however, the unshakable allegations continue.

Just his week, never before seen photos emerged of Clinton receiving a massage from Jeffrey Epstein ‘sex slave’ Chauntae Davies, who was just 22 at the time, adding to the already bursting portfolio of questionable connections Clinton shared with the billionaire pedophile.

UNW Weekly Report (March 1st – 7th) Communism, Socialism, and the Transitional Economy

Ryan DeLarme,
March 7th, 2020

There is a grotesque amount of historic inaccuracy and general ignorance surrounding the realities of Socialism and Communism, which I’d like to touch on this week. I would add that this is not an argument favoring Capitalism by any stretch, all of these systems are flawed and should have been rendered obsolete at LEAST 40 years ago by the state of technology (largely classified to protect the US petrodollar). Most of the misconceptions surrounding these topics are the product of highly effective propaganda. These forms of government (at least in the undiscerning western world) are generally propagated by well meaning, compassionate folks who have been duped into a cult of personality, thinking either of these systems would actually serve the people instead of the Government that they would be handing their freedoms over to. What could be so wrong with giving the government total control of everything? It’s worked out fine for China, or Venezuela, right? Consider this; the Holocaust was responsible for 18 to 20 million deaths, but since it’s inception Communism has been responsible for 94 to 100 million deaths worldwide, though these are only the “on the books” numbers, the actual projection is closer to 200 million.

The combination of a CIA infested counter culture, and the well established cult of personality both demand a staunch anti-conservative viewpoint and an admiration for Karl Marx. You know who else admired Marxism? None other than everyone’s favorite super villain, Adolf Hitler!

Most of the people who tout Communism and Socialism claim to be fighting against the super-rich financial elite (which is totally fine and admirable) but these folks fail to realize that some of the richest families in the history of the planet have invested heavily into the spread of these systems and have benefited tremendously through them. These same rabid champions of socialism tend to throw the word Nazi around like monkey caca at anyone who doesn’t think in line with the ideologies they claim to support. Sounds pretty fascist, right? Perhaps that’s why Hitler was such a fan, going so far as to claim that:

“I am not only the conqueror, but the executor of Marxism, of that part of it which is essential and justified…”
-Adolf Hitler

Socialism has historically been just as much of a mess, many innocent people were slaughtered to establish this system in countries worldwide. The term “Revolution” is often romanticized in the hearts and minds of the young and foolish who are often more susceptible to delusions of grandeur, but the truth is that these socialist or communist revolutions are far from glorious, often resulting in regret and confusion. Revolution is still WAR, and if you are going to go to war you had better make sure it’s for a damn good reason, not to keep up with the Jones’s or because your subculture demands it of you. These revolutions have killed many millions of people on both sides, bodies strewn through the streets and fields, and when they think their saviors in the party are going to snap their fingers and make everything beautiful they find nothing but death,  anarchy, and profound psychological trauma.

 In some areas of France, where they had never seen violence and most went innocently about their lives, revolutionaries spread chaos, causing the common folk to kill one another over this ruthless ideology and blind assurance/arrogance that they were doing the right thing. At the lower class levels, everyone loses despite whatever lies people tell themselves, but who prospers regardless of the revolutions outcome? The silent, uber rich, unelected officials who stand to gain no matter which way the war turns.

Without knowledge of self it is easy to want to cling to a welcoming subculture to fill that void of “Who am I, what is my purpose?” In most cases those who would become the soldiers of communism or socialism just want to be a part of something and feel accepted, you know, the same reason kids join gangs. There is literally no difference here, because no matter what you do in life you create justifications. The difference between folks nowadays and the early champions of Socialism/communism is that we have (to some degree) a record and collective memory of how these movements turned out, we just chose not to listen.

What would really help this planet would be the elimination of the banking cartels and the implementation of a quantum financial system based on resources, the combination of Jaques Fresco’s model of a Resource based Economy and the high technology of the modern era (most of which is far beyond most of our comprehension but is locked up in black projects to maintain the status quo) would potentially change the face of the planet within months, think a modernized Venus Project and add the freedom to use the Classified technology and patents and put them to work. It is a lot to explain, so I recommend watching these documentaries on the work of the late Jacques Fresco:


Speaking of the economy and drastic changes, we know that Trump and the patriots are building a transition economy to keep things afloat while we move towards (hopefully) something that makes more sense than the mess the central banking system has put us in. The combination of a resource based economy and a quantum financial system would make everyone happy, except those who love controlling everything. You could easily make healthcare accessible to all, and a universal basic income which should make the young socialists happy without having to hand over our sovereignty to the banksters.

What’s happening now with this “transitional economy” is similar to what the globalists did in the 70’s when moving from gold standard to the petrodollar, resulting in recession caused by a transitional pivot. Luckily they had the media in their pocket, as always, and were able to make excuses for the recession when it came which worked beautifully for them, no one questioned it. We’ve seen countless wars raged since as a result of this US Petrodollar. So why are we still on it? Well because any and all attempts to revert back to anything more sensible have been swiftly dealt with by the banking cartels who prefer fiat currency.. Until now. Trump’s transitional economy is falling into place, the FED is in the crosshairs and it’s nearly time to execute the plan. This time when the recession hits, Trump and Co. won’t have the mainstream to sooth the public’s worries, instead they will likely blame it on Trump’s incompetence and stoke everyone’s fears as with this latest designer virus.


The DNC ramped up its quiet war on Bernie Sanders in recent weeks, first with Pete Buttigieg backing out and handing his SuperTuesday votes over to Joe Biden. Amy Klobuchar and Tom Stier did the same, making it pretty obvious that Biden is the pick for the Central Bank and the “Deep-State”, for now at least. Many people believe Michelle Obama is “waiting in the wings”, others think Michelle or Hillary will run with Bidden and then he will suddenly back out leaving whoever he chooses to run with at the helm. In the end, the strongest play they could make against Trump would be a Michelle and Hillary two woman ticket. I personally think it would be a terrible choice to have Hillary Clinton on the ticket, but it would protect the Clintons from the Law temporarily. At this point it’s anyone’s guess but I personally would much rather see a Trump vs Bernie debate, two non establishment dudes chosen by the people and not the ruling financial elite.

In other Hillary related news, Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch has been trying to get answers from hillary about her emails and benghazi, among other things. She said she would answer in writing and the judge OK’d this, but a lot of the answers were blank, she just didn’t answer the questions. It clearly did not satisfy the Judge (DC district court Senior Judge Royce Lamberth) because he rejected the written response and ordered that she appear in person within 70 days. How could she get out of this? Hmmmm… 

Assange Expected to confirm Wikileaks source of DNC Emails was Seth Rich not Russians

Originally Published @ EXOPOLITICS
BY DR MICHAEL SALLA, APRIL 25, 2019

The April 11 arrest of Julian Assange has resurrected the narrative that emails stored on the Democratic National Committee (DNC) were not hacked by Russia, but leaked by a disenchanted employee, Seth Rich, who wanted to expose how Bernie Sanders was systematically undermined during the 2016 primaries by the DNC. According to this narrative, Rich communicated with Assange and handed over the DNC emails through Wikileaks’ secure online drop box.

Assange first stated in a June 12, 2016, interview that Wikileaks had more of the missing emails from Hillary Clinton’s private email server during her time as Secretary of State: “We have upcoming leaks in relation to Hillary Clinton … We have emails pending publication, that is correct.”

Two days later, the computer security company “Crowdstrike” published a report that the DNC email servers had been hacked by Russia. The mainstream media quickly embraced the Russia hacking narrative to explain why Clinton and DNC emails were in the hands of Wikileaks.

Here’s what the Washington Post’s Ellen Nakashima had to say on June 14, 2016:

Russian government hackers penetrated the computer network of the Democratic National Committee and gained access to the entire database of opposition research on GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, according to committee officials and security experts who responded to the breach.

However, multiple sources pointed out major problems with Crowdstrike as a competent and impartial investigator into the alleged Russian hacking:

The Nakamura [Nakashima] piece marked the first salvo in the Russian hacking meme. But the claim was not backed up by independently verified forensic evidence—it rested solely on the conclusions of a computer security company—Crowdstrike. The pro-Ukrainian politics of Crowdstrike’s founder, Dmitri Alperovitch, and his strident opposition to Russia cast a pall of bias over the findings of Crowdstrike. No U.S. Federal Law Enforcement official or agency was given access to the DNC servers. Neither the FBI nor Homeland Security were permitted to examine the servers and the alleged evidence of a hack. 

In his 2019 best-selling book, Spygate: The Attempted Sabotage of Donald J. Trump, Dan Bongino, a former Secret Service officer, detailed the multiple flaws in the Crowdstrike investigation and the puzzling decision to deny the FBI access to the allegedly hacked DNC email server.

Almost a month after Assange’s interview that Wikileaks had more Clinton emails and was vetting them for eventual release, Rich was murdered on July 10, 2016, in very strange circumstances. Nearly two weeks later, on July 22, Wikileaks dumped 20,000 DNC emails on its website.

A July 25, 2016, story published in Vox by Timothy Lee covered the Wikileaks DNC dump and found that many showed the DNC favored the Clinton campaign over Bernie Sanders. In November 2017, Donna Brazile, the former chair of the DNC, confirmed that the DNC had systematically supported Clinton over Sanders. Brazile’s admission provides a solid foundation for understanding what motivated Rich to leak to DNC emails to Wikileaks in the first place.  

In an August 2016 Dutch television interview, Assange firmly hinted that Rich’s murder was related to his leaking of DNC emails to Wikileaks:

Assange: Whistleblowers go to significant efforts to get us material and often significant risks. There was a 27-year old that works for the DNC who was shot in the back… murdered.. for unknown reasons as he was walking down the street in Washington.

Host: That was just a robbery wasn’t it?

Assange: No. There’s no finding.

Host: What are you suggesting?

Assange: I am suggesting that our sources take risks and they become concerned to see things occurring like that.

Wikileaks then offered a $20,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of those responsible, fueling the rumors that Rich was Wikileaks source. 

Those who claimed that Rich was responsible for the release of the DNC emails were vilified and forced to backtrack on their claims. Here’s how Wikipedia summarized the situation:

Fact-checking websites like PolitiFact.com,[5][8] Snopes.com,[9] and FactCheck.org stated that these theories were false and unfounded.[4] The New York TimesLos Angeles Times, and The Washington Post wrote that the promotion of these conspiracy theories was an example of fake news. [10][11][12]

Influential figures such as Fox News and Sean Hannity were forced through litigation to abandon their investigations into Rich’s murder due to his parents leading the charge condemning “conspiracy theories”.

Rich’s parents condemned the conspiracy theorists and said that these individuals were exploiting their son’s death for political gain, and their spokesperson called the conspiracy theorists “disgusting sociopaths”.

A story published by two Fox News reporters, Malia Zimmerman and Ed Butowsky, in May 2017 was subsequently pulled from the news site and Hannity also stopped covering the story.

Even Bongino’s book, Spygate, failed to mention the Rich connection and what this meant to the whole Russia hacking narrative, which he uncritically endorsed as valid.

After Fox News reporters and Hannity suspended their investigations into Rich leaking the DNC emails, only alternative news sources were willing to investigate the available evidence. Most prominent among them was National Security Agency (NSA) whistleblower, William Binney, who was among the first to conclude that Rich was responsible for the leaking and that Russia was being framed by the Deep State.

Binney, a former Technical Director at the NSA, together with Ray McGovern, a 27 year CIA analyst, wrote on September 20, 2017:

We stand by our main conclusion that the data from the intrusion of July 5, 2016, into the Democratic National Committee’s computers, an intrusion blamed on “Russian hacking,” was not a hack but rather a download/copy onto an external storage device by someone with physical access to the DNC.

After Q Anon publicly emerged in late October 2017, Seth Rich was soon mentioned in several posts alluding to his role as the true source for the Wikileaks DNC email leaks, and that he was murdered as a result by hitmen tied to the MS-13 criminal gang and the Clintons.

The alternative news investigation into Rich’s role in leaking the DNC emails subsequently languished but gained renewed life a year later on October 4, 2018, when the NSA responded to a Freedom of Information request that showed Rich had indeed been communicating with Assange. In their response to a FOIA request filed by attorney Ty Clevenger about information concerning Seth Rich and Julian Assange, the NSA wrote:

Your request has been processed under the provisions of the FOIA. Fifteen documents (32 pages) responsive to your request have been reviewed by this Agency as required by the FOIA and have found to be currently and properly classified in accordance with Executive Order 13526. These documents meet the criteria for classification as set forth in Subparagraph © of Section 1.4 and remains classified TOP SECRET and SECRET.

Since the FOIA request and the NSA response were not released, the NSA’s startling admission received no attention by the mainstream media, and only a few alternative media sources picked up the story. One of these was an April 19, 2019, article by Mark McCarty who cited a blog post published six months earlier (October 23, 2018) that first discussed the NSA FOIA response.

McCarty raised important questions over the precise language used in Clevenger’s FOIA request and what this meant in terms of documents being withheld. In his April 19, 2019, article he pointed out that many of these questions were resolved by Binney in an April 17 interview:

“Ty Clevenger has FOIAed information from NSA asking for any data that involved both Seth Rich and also Julian Assange.

And they responded by saying we’ve got 15 files, 32 pages, but they’re all classified in accordance with executive order 13526 covering classification, and therefore you can’t have them.

That says that NSA has records of communications between Seth Rich and Julian Assange. I mean, that’s the only business that NSA is in — copying communications between people and devices.”

Binney’s interpretation of what the NSA had admitted through FOIA is astounding in its implications. The single issue that has come to dominate analyses of the 2016 election is that Russia hacked the DNC and interfered with the integrity of the US Presidential election by passing this on to Wikileaks.

This spawned the nearly two-year Mueller investigation into Trump’s collusion with Russia, which generated reams of anti-Trump and anti-Russia stories in the mainstream media. Both Trump and Russia were vilified by a hostile media that was anxious to promote the Russia hacking narrative, and ridiculing anyone suggesting that Rich was the true source of the DNC info being released to Wikileaks, not Russia.

The NSA’s admission is the first concrete sign that the Deep State and the mainstream media are about to be exposed for willfully lying and misrepresenting the truth. Assange is all but certain to be extradited to the USA, and will reveal what he knows about Rich and his connection to the DNC email dumps.

While the questioning and extradition of Assange are likely to take an extended period of time, it’s worth emphasizing that the truth is already known to the NSA, which is keeping this classified for the moment. It is not known when and how this information will be released, and whether it will be done through Assange, the NSA or some other process.

Despite knowledge of the Rich and Assange connection, the NSA and its two directors since the DNC hacking – Admiral Mike Rogers (2014-2018) and General Paul Nakasone (2018-) – have done very little to publicly alter the mainstream news narrative that Russia had hacked the DNC servers; and that Rich’s murder was unrelated to the DNC documents that Wikileaks released less than two weeks after his murder.

Why did the NSA stand by and allow the accusations of Russian hacking to grow to the extent that relations with Russia have been severely damaged, economic sanctions imposed, and a two-year long investigation was established into potential collusion between the Trump Presidential Campaign and the Russians?

One answer worth exploring is that the Deep State had much to fear about a potential collaboration between Trump and Putin in revealing many advanced technology secrets possessed by their respective intelligence services; secrets which President John F. Kennedy and Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev unsuccessfully attempted to unlock 56 years ago, with tragic consequences for both.
