"So what's Trump up to while all this is going on? He continues to maintain friendly relations with a UK government that is part of a most unfriendly attempt to damage him."

Trump's action or lack thereof is very puzzling. It would seem that he would use his ultimate presidential authority around classification to declassify and release to the public all the documents & communications. That would then at least remove some of the speculation and media spinning as folks would be forced to confront the reality.

Larry and others believe that Trump was hampered in this as his opponents would then claim obstruction of justice. But, it seems he should have known they would have used it anyway as we now see with the Ukraine "quid pro quo". I'm not sure what he expects to accomplish by delegating declassification authority to Bill Barr. He must believe that Barr will have both the motivation and the courage to actually get to the bottom of it all and bring forth a cogent explanation of what actually happened and indict those responsible for criminal behavior. I wouldn't take that bet if I were him but then I'm not in his shoes.

Perhaps he's happy to let them run with the nonsense. There was a hint of that on SST a while ago.

None can operate in the real estate business without engaging in transactions that, no matter how carefully vetted by the lawyers, can be made to look dubious. In fact during the election campaign Trump himself spoke of the practice of making political donations in order to get building licences. Given the custom in the States of using the Government apparatus of law enforcement to pursue political vendettas, and none too scrupulously at that as the Flynn case shows, there'd be plenty to go at if Trump's opponents decided to go on that tack.

And he does seem to have quite a lot of opponents in and around that Government apparatus of law enforcement. Let them chase Russian hares to their heart's content instead. Most people of any sense will know that's nonsense, whereas we'd be prepared to believe anything about the real estate business.

Remember Mueller was head of fbi on 911. He released false identities of the hijackers. 7 of the 19 hijackers were alive after the attacks. Mueller then acknowledged their identities were in doubt but never updated them. He also said he saw the first plane hit the towers on the very day of 911 when that would only be possible if u were in nyc and looking up at the towers.

Hiring mueller to investigate was like when bush wanted to hire Henry Kissinger to head 911 commission.

Also remember not one democrat or republican president has come to the defense of trump.

Having lived in New York City until 1997 I can tell you that every real estate deal ever done by Donald Trump to that point was highly scrutinized (and mostly criticized) by the press. Particularly when he really handed it to their paymasters the banks. There's no there, there. My belief is that the UK will get its comeuppance once Barr publishes his findings that all Russian roads really do lead to London.

English Outsider

I'm sure you're right on the real estate angle. But when was innocence a defence?

Barr, if he's genuine and really wants to put on record the facts that exculpate Trump, would have to name names. That'd be a lot of comeuppance all in one go and the pressures against must be very great.

In a really worthwhile article, Margot Cleveland of The Federalist presents a scoop on the David Iganatius/Stefan Halper, etc. relationship:
"SCOOP: CIA, FBI Informant Was Washington Post Source For Russiagate Smears"
These close connections between the Washington Post’s David Ignatius and people connected to U.S. and U.K. intelligence raise grave concerns about the deep state using media to push propaganda.

by Margot Cleveland, The Federalist, 2019-11-04

Its beginning:

The Federalist has learned that the now-outed CIA and FBI informant Stefan Halper served as a source for Washington Post reporter David Ignatius, providing more evidence that the intelligence community has co-opted the press to push anti-Trump conspiracy theories. In addition, an email recently obtained by The Federalist from the MI5-connected Christopher Andrew bragging that his long-time friend Ignatius has the “‘inside track’ on Flynn” adds further confirmation of this conclusion.

Svetlana Lokhova, the Russian-born English citizen and Soviet-era scholar, told The Federalist that she only realized the significance of her communications with and about Ignatius following the filing of attorney Sidney Powell’s reply brief in the Michael Flynn case.

Is this what Sy Hersh was referring to in the leaked Berkman audio where he says the President isn't wrong that they were out to get him and that Sy had a whole narrative how this whole thing was done a Brennan operation?

I feel that Ppadopolous and Carter were mere conduits placed in situ to be used as the opening for which to investigate Trump.
I trust neither one of the two.
