Craig Murray has a Twitter account and a blog wherein he comments on Seth Rich. The obvious logical leap is that he received the emails (or at least some emails) from Seth Rich at American University as mentioned above, or at least was aware of his role in leaking them. Which would sort of put an end to the idea that the Russians hacked the DNC to get them.
I find myself wondering how I missed this at the time. It was published in December of 2016.
To be sure, Craig does not say outright that he got the emails from Seth Rich, but he does say where he got at least some emails and is linked to Wikileaks, and is also commenting on the Seth Rich case.
Best guess? There's more than one leaker, and Wikileaks is keeping quiet to protect the other(s) involved.
Active measures to frame Trump with Alfa Bank allegations?
If, in fact, someone was trying to fake the appearance of traffic between the two systems, it would represent a significant piece of evidence for an actual frame job rather than simply making up rumors. The first question people should be asking here is who controlled those two domains (trump-email.com and contact-client.com) at the time. If it wasn't Trump or Alfa Bank, who was it?
If either side of that transaction is controlled by Fusion GPS or Intel Agency assets, we have a frame job. And there are more ways to do a frame job even if those domains are controlled by some Trump-related org and/or Alfa Bank; DNS is not a very secure protocol).
Boente was involved in SpyGate and thus this is not surprising news there. However, if Wray was also involved (the FBI denies it but who trusts them anymore?) it would be another sign that Wray is aligned with the Deep State rather than justice. If so, it would not be the first such sign, but perhaps the first one with a trail.
Flynn's attorney, Sydney Powell, has indicated that there is more exculpatory information not yet released:
If her claims are true -- and so far she has a better track record than the FBI -- that's quite an explosive collection of material the FBI released, and there's more to come.
Official investigation into the origin of the Kung Flu
Holding China accountable is unlikely to be very successful. Yes, this situation will generate a lot of political support for policies to punish China. Which means what? Pulling our manufacturing out, applying more tariffs perhaps, things which we mostly wanted to do anyway (under Trump, at least). We're unlikely to get them to actually pay us trillions. They will ignore lawsuits or enforcement actions through international bodies. They already have enough intellectual property to be only mildly inconvenienced by losing access to more.
A military response is only really on the table if there is strong evidence they did this deliberately, and that's a hard case to make. (Accidentally, sure).
Our options for responding to this hostile act by China seem limited.
Just like when Hillary "wiped, like with a cloth?" her server, this should be taken as an admission of guilt.
UPDATE: Probably also worth noting. He also wiped his communications with Fusion GPS... and did so "in early January 2017". IE, shortly after Trump was elected and the question of how to cover everything up was undoubtedly very active...
UPDATE 2: Bongino points out that the date Steele deleted the emails is the same date as the January 5th meeting at the White House which Susan Rice documented in an email to herself January 20th stating that Obama emphasized everything about the Trump-Russia investigation should be handled "by the book". That is, of course, intended as coverup (as in, "We will all (pretend) we did this by the book, so cover up anything that says otherwise").
The twist: it's past the statute of limitations, so can't be prosecuted in any case. To me, that means they are investigating in order to discredit the allegation if at all possible, and likely with an eye towards prosecuting the victim (whose police report would not be beyond any statute of limitations, if false).
This investigation will either quietly go away or be used to attack Reade. I hope she has retained counsel, even if (especially if!) she is being entirely honest.
