Allan Nairn: Trump’s Venezuela Envoy Elliott Abrams Is a War Criminal Who Has Abetted Genocide

In an ongoing effort to topple Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro, Vice President Mike Pence met with members of the Venezuelan opposition at the White House Tuesday alongside Trump’s new special envoy to Venezuela, Elliott Abrams. Elliott Abrams is a right-wing hawk who was convicted in 1991 for lying to Congress during the Iran-Contra scandal, but he was later pardoned by President George H.W. Bush. Abrams defended Guatemalan dictator General Efraín Ríos Montt as he oversaw a campaign of mass murder and torture of indigenous people in Guatemala in the 1980s. Ríos Montt was later convicted of genocide. Abrams was also linked to the 2002 coup in Venezuela that attempted to topple Hugo Chávez. We look at Abrams’s track record with prize-winning investigative journalist Allan Nairn, who has closely tracked Abrams for over three decades. Nairn is two-time winner of the George Polk Award and a recipient of the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Award.


"last September 26, a genocide trial—at a genocide trial in Guatemala, a trial in which I testified and gave evidence, the court ruled that what the Guatemalan army did in Guatemala—in the case of that particular trial, what they did to the Mayan Ixil people, but they also did it to others of the Mayan population in Guatemala—the court formally ruled that that constituted genocide. And in their ruling—and this is quite important—they said that this genocide was carried out by the Guatemalan army in accord with, and essentially at the behest of, U.S. policy, U.S. interests. So, as strong as the case was back in the
90s, when I argued on the Charlie Rose show that Abrams should be put on trial, now it’s even stronger, because you have the predicate of this genocide finding by the Guatemalan court saying that that genocide derived from U.S. policy. And that’s not even getting into what he did with El Salvador and Panama and Nicaragua and Palestine and other places."

Roberto Lovato: Elliott Abrams Is Bringing Violence of 1980s U.S. Latin America Policy to Venezuela

President Trump met with Colombian President Iván Duque at the White House Wednesday to discuss ongoing efforts to topple the Venezuelan government, the same day that U.S. special envoy to Venezuela Elliott Abrams faced questioning from Congress about his role in atrocities carried out in Latin America in the 1980s. This includes defending Guatemalan dictator General Efraín Ríos Montt’s campaign of mass murder and torture of indigenous people. We speak with Roberto Lovato, independent journalist working out of the San Francisco Writers’ Grotto, about the violent history of Elliott Abrams and the U.S.-backed opposition in Venezuela.

People who have no concept of original thought, everything is stolen form someone else...now back to the real news.

Judge gags Roger Stone from Mueller comments around D.C. courthouse

Mueller's team also released a filing in the case that suggested federal prosecutors might have obtained 'Stone's communications' with WikiLeaks.

Roger Stone remains free to talk about Robert Mueller and the Russia investigation, just not in and around the Washington, D.C., courthouse where the longtime Donald Trump associate is fighting the special counsel’s charges he lied to Congress and obstructed its Russia investigation.

That’s the end result from a four-page order issued Friday from a federal judge who had been considering a complete gag order on Stone in the wake of his full-on media blitz since his arrest last month in south Florida.

Also Friday, Mueller's team released a filing in the case that included a tantalizing nugget suggesting federal prosecutors might have obtained "Stone's communications" with WikiLeaks, the website that dumped stolen Democratic emails during the election.

The case for Russia collusion … against the Democrats

With Republicans on both House and Senate investigative committees having found no evidence of Donald Trump being guilty of Democrat-inspired allegations of Russian collusion, it is worth revisiting one anecdote that escaped significant attention during the hysteria but continues to have U.S. security implications.

As secretary of State, Hillary Clinton worked with Russian leaders, including 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.

ADVERTISEMENT
Clinton’s handprint was everywhere on the 2009-2010 project, the tip of a diplomatic spear to reboot U.S.-Russian relations after years of hostility prompted by Vladimir Putin’s military action against the former Soviet republic and now U.S. ally Georgia.

A donor to the Clinton Foundation, Russian oligarch Viktor Vekselberg, led the Russian side of the effort, and several American donors to the Clinton charity got involved. Clinton’s State Department facilitated U.S. companies working with the Russian project, and she personally invited Medvedev to visit Silicon Valley.

The collaboration occurred at the exact same time Bill Clinton made his now infamous trip to Russia to pick up a jaw-dropping $500,000 check for a single speech.

The former president’s trip secretly raised eyebrows inside his wife’s State Department, internal emails show.

That’s because he asked permission to meet Vekselberg, the head of Skolkovo, and Arkady Dvorkovich, a senior official of Rosatom, the Russian nuclear giant seeking State’s permission to buy Uranium One, a Canadian company with massive U.S. uranium reserves.

Years later, intelligence documents show, both the Skolkovo and Uranium One projects raised serious security concerns.

Russian oligarch, Justice Department and a clear case of collusion

Now for the evidence, as presented to me by several sources, American and foreign:

In September 2015, senior Department of Justice (DOJ) official Bruce Ohr and some FBI agents met in New York with Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska to seek the Russian billionaire’s help on organized crime investigations. The meeting was facilitated — though not attended — by British intelligence operative Christopher Steele.

In 2012, Steele’s private firm, Orbis Business Intelligence, was hired as a subcontractor by a law firm working for Deripaska, who then headed Russia’s largest aluminum company. Steele’s firm was asked to do research to help the law firm defend a lawsuit filed against Deripaska by a business rival.

By 2015, Steele’s work had left him friendly with one of Deripaska’s lawyers, according to my sources. And when Ohr, then the associate deputy attorney general and a longtime acquaintance of Steele, sought help getting to meet Deripaska, Steele obliged.

Deripaska, who frequently has appeared alongside Russian President Vladimir Putin at high-profile meetings, never really dealt with Steele, but he followed his lawyer’s recommendations and met with Ohr, my sources say.

By that time, Deripaska already had proven himself helpful to the FBI. As I’ve written previously, based on numerous U.S. sources, he cooperated with the bureau from 2009 to 2011 and spent more than $25 million of his own money on an FBI-supervised operation to try to rescue retired FBI agent Robert Levinson, who was captured in Iran while working as a CIA contractor.

U.S. officials and Levinson’s family told me that Deripaska’s efforts came close to securing Levinson’s freedom before the State Department scuttled a deal. The former agent has never been heard from again.

The 2015 meeting between Ohr, the FBI and Deripaska is captured cryptically in some of Ohr’s handwritten notes, recently turned over to Congress.

As of Sunday morning, more than 230 demonstrations in cities and towns across the country are planned for Monday, February 18, with more than 10,000 Americans prepared to protest President Donald Trump’s admittedly fake national emergency, and Republicans for their support for his actions.
After Trump’s press conference Friday morning, progressive groups including MoveOn, United We Dream, Indivisible, and CREDO Action set to work organizing demonstrations against what CREDO co-director Heidi Hess called “an unconstitutional power grab that threatens our democracy and escalates Trump’s attacks on immigrants, communities of color, Muslims and Black and Brown people.”
Within 24 hours Americans had RSVP’d to more than 175 President’s Day protests, with the number exploding again by Sunday.

Justice Department preparing for Mueller report as early as next week

Trump said Wednesday that it's "totally up to Bill Barr" as to whether Mueller's report comes out while he is overseas in Vietnam next week.
"That'll be totally up to the new attorney general. He's a tremendous man, a tremendous person, who really respects this country and respects the Justice Department, so that'll be totally up to him," Trump told reporters in the White House.
Speculation about the end of the probe has been running rampant in Washington. NBC News reported recently the probe would be done by mid-February.

Trump hired Barr to pull the plug on the investigation of himself. The FBI is likely busily hiding and protecting their data from the inevitable "re-write" to be expected from the Trumpiverse. Fortunately the White House is a total shambles. They'll bugger up the redaction of the FBI evidence and dig themselves in even deeper, more than likely.

Limbaugh: Media Trying To Convince Us We Haven’t Heard What We’ve Heard For Last Two Years

February 14, 2019
Rush Limbaugh started off his radio program Thursday by addressing the biggest stories of the day: former Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe's new book detailing how he and his Trump-hating cronies allegedly attempted to stage a coup to take down the duly elected President of the United States, and the media now making a concerted effort to "gaslight" Americans to try to convince them that they didn't really hear and read what they've been hearing and reading from the media for the past two years. The two big stories, Limbaugh said, are interconnected.


McCabe, "one of the ringleaders of this coup to get rid of Donald Trump," is out there "bragging" about his efforts to take down a sitting president, said Rush. "He is bragging about his efforts to undermine and overthrow Trump. He’s admitting, essentially, that he and his buddies put in motion a silent coup to get rid of Donald Trump. He admits that the talk of wiring Rosenstein to entrap Trump in an Oval Office conversation was real. Rosenstein and others have been laughing it off and denying it. But McCabe is out there admitting that it is all true."

The timing of McCabe's big book tour, said Limbaugh,"could not be more delicious." He explained: "Over the past two weeks it has been — and even longer than that — over the past two weeks it has been leaking very slowly, very surely, that the Mueller report isn’t gonna have anything about collusion with Russia in it. ... Then the most recent leaks, which were this week that Mueller may not even issue a report. And then Trump’s lead lawyer at the beginning of all this, John Dowd, said, 'There isn’t gonna be a report. He’s got nothing. There isn’t anything in this.'"

Limbaugh offered a theory on why Mueller would choose not to issue a report, beyond the fact that he has "nothing'" to show for the whole drummed up collusion "hoax": Not issuing a report is "gonna continue to provide a source for anonymous leaks" that make it appear that something nefarious was going on in the Trump camp. "Even if the report’s got nothing in it, the media from now through the 2020 election is gonna be acting like it does," he said.

In the meantime, the media is working in unison to try to pull off one of the biggest "gaslighting" efforts in recent history.

"They’re acting like, 'Well, wait a minute. We never, ever said that there was collusion,'" said Rush. "They really are. They’re now starting to take the position, now that everybody knows that this report may not even be made public and that it does not have any evidence whatsoever of Trump-Russia collusion, there are elements of the media now saying, 'Well, wait! We never said that there was!'

"The term for this is gaslighting," he continued. "They’re gaslighting us. They’re literally trying to make us believe that what we’ve thought for the past two years has been wrong, that they have not been pushing the collusion theory. I mean, it’s stunning to see this."


After citing a perfect "Seinfeld" reference brought up by the Federalist's Adam Mill, Limbaugh unloaded on the "players" in this deeply "damaging" game, calling for a new special counsel to investigate their actions.

"In the midst of all the players knowing they found nothing, they’ve got nothing, there was nothing to find — that they have been running a hoax, that they’ve been running a silent coup — the damage that they have done to this country in the past two years is immeasurable, and there needs to be a brand-new special counsel impaneled to investigate everybody from Mueller and everybody on his team, to McCabe, to Comey, to Strzok, to Bruce Ohr, to every one of these people all the way up to Fusion GPS, the Perkins Coie law firm, Hillary Clinton, the Democrat National Committee, all the way up to Brennan and Clapper and maybe even Obama, because that’s the root of this."

Rush then summarized the intent of the whole charade: "It was a concerted effort to nullify and overturn the election results of 2016."

The worst part, he suggested, is that the mainstream media has known from the beginning that the whole "collusion" claim was nonsense. "I firmly believe that everybody in the media has known from the get-go that none of this was true," he said. "There may be some exceptions in outlier media, but in terms of the Washington-New York corridor media, every damned one of them, everybody you see on CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, New York Times, Washington, every damned one of them commenting in it, analyzing on it, has known from the get-go that there wasn’t any collusion."


The reasons he's so certain, he explained, is that the media would "have to be blind not to know the origins of it."

"They know from the get-go that the dossier was bogus!" he exclaimed. "And yet they were looking for any which way they could to publish it. They knew it was a series of lies. They knew it was a bunch of garbage strung together. They knew it had been used as phony intelligence to get warrants to spy. They knew all of this. The media has been as active a player in this as Mueller!"

Trey Gowdy says McCabe is lying, and then he sets the record straight on multiple fronts

Trey Gowdy says McCabe is lying, and then he sets the record straight on multiple fronts
February 20, 2019

Former Rep. Trey Gowdy shot down the claim by fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe that he had briefed a bipartisan group of lawmakers about an investigation into President Donald Trump.

The former Republican lawmaker from South Carolina spoke with Fox News’ Martha MacCallum on Tuesday about McCabe’s assertions that the so-called “Gang of Eight” had no objections when he informed them that the FBI would be launching a counterintelligence investigation of Trump’s alleged ties to Russia.

“What do you think he was getting at, that no one objected?” MacCallum asked Gowdy, now a Fox News contributor, during “The Story” on Tuesday.

“That Devin and Paul knew about it and had no problem with it,” he replied, referring to House Intelligence Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes and then-House Speaker Paul Ryan.

“The reason he’s doing it this way is that Devin and Paul are not allowed to discuss anything that is said in a Gang of Eight meeting, and McCabe knows that. So he can level the accusation and Paul and Devin cannot refute him,” Gowdy said.

“What I think is fascinating is, there were three investigations into a duly elected president,” he continued. “The Peter Strzok one from July of 2016 and then McCabe started a counterintelligence, and if he’s telling the truth, started a criminal probe into the President of the United States.”

The former chairman of the House Oversight Committee recalled grilling by his colleagues on other occasions.

“I listened to Devin and Paul quiz the DOJ and the FBI for hours on multiple occasions about the one counterintelligence investigation we all knew about it. I find it stunning that they would know about a second one and not say a single solitary word,” he said. “And I will continue to not believe they knew about it unless one or the other contradicts it.”

McCabe, who was fired in the spring of 2017 for lying under oath, also declared in an interview with CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” on Tuesday that he believes it is “possible” that Trump is a “Russian asset.”

from the BACK TO THE REAL NEWS DEPT:

Russia Investigation Set To Wrap Up By Next Week,
AG Barr To Decide Report Release

OAN Newsroom
UPDATED 1:35 PM PT — Wednesday, February 20, 2019

In this Jan. 15, 2019 photo, Attorney General nominee William Barr testifies during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington. (AP Photo/Andrew Harnik)

President Trump has responded to reports that the Mueller probe will be released next week.

In the Oval Office Wednesday, the president didn’t offer any opinion on the report other than to say it’ll be up to the new attorney general William Barr on whether the findings will be publicly released.

This comes after reports claimed Barr is set to announce the completion of the special counsel probe as early as next week.

Barr will then submit a summary of the confidential report to Congress before it’s decided how much will be made public.

Special counsel regulations don’t require this step, but during recent confirmation hearings Barr promised lawmakers full transparency.

The Mueller probe into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia began nearly two-years ago, and cost taxpayers more than $25 million.

Graham Will Subpoena Rosenstein and McCabe If Necessary to Find Out 'Who's Telling the Truth'

Graham on Sunday promised to "get to the bottom of it."

It's stunning to me that one of the chief law enforcement officers of the land -- the acting head of the FBI -- would go on national television and say, oh, by the way, I remember a conversation with the deputy attorney general about trying to find if we could replace the president under the 25th Amendment.

We're a democracy. People enforce the law, can't take it into their own hands. And was this an attempted bureaucratic coup? I don't know. I don't know who's telling the truth.

I know Rosenstein has vehemently denied it, but we're going to get to the bottom of it. I do know there was a lot of monkey business about FISA warrants being issued against Carter Page, about dossiers coming from Russia that were unverified.

Mr. Mueller is going to look at the Trump campaign, as he should, to see if they violated any laws during the 2016 election. And I'm going to do everything I can to get to the bottom of the Department of Justice/FBI behavior toward President Trump and his campaign.

Graham said no organization, including the FBI, is "beyond scrutiny."
