Seth Abramson Is Pretty Sure The “Tape” Noted in Mueller’s Report is THE Tape....

(After Seth’s first tweet I used a Twitter thread unroll to make the diary more readable. I made one exception when he linked to the BBC News article. Set asked for his work to be widely disseminated, so I thought he’d want it here. Enjoy) It doesn’t require proof of criminality beyond a reasonable doubt to impeach a POTUS, though we have that now as to obstruction—an impeachable crime that can’t be indicted because Trump is president—and campaign finance felonies (ditto). A national security risk is sufficient. Counterintelligence investigations of Trump remain outstanding—their findings haven’t yet been disclosed, though they eventually will be to the House and Senate intelligence committees—but Mueller’s report does include corroborated information that is *central* to those cases. A president *must* be impeached if—in counterintelligence terms—there’s “high confidence” intel that he is “compromised” by a foreign power, meaning not that he is necessarily an agent of any foreign power, but that he cannot uphold his Oath of Office (and loyalty) to America. Almost immediately thereafter, I passed on this internationally available BBC report to the American public because—as a curatorial journalist—that’s one of the main things I do: find reliable international reporting that links up to domestic stories in a way that’s critical. To  the extent you’ve ever heard me called a “conspiracy  theorist,” it was this *BBC* reporting—which American media  for some reason attributed to me—that earned me that erroneous  title. So I wrote a book, PROOF OF COLLUSION, with all the British  reporting on Kremlin kompromat. PROOF  OF COLLUSION has an entire chapter on Kremlin kompromat called  “Kompromat,” and it amasses a wealth of internationally  reported information on Trump being blackmailed by the Kremlin that  was *all* from the reliable overseas major media outlets that many  of us read daily. These  outlets found ten witnesses (inclusive of—but not limited  to—dossier witnesses) who could confirm the brief section of  Steele’s dossier that indicated the Kremlin was holding video  blackmail material (“kompromat”) over Trump’s head. Most  Americans never saw the evidence. The  evidence included BBC-confirmed witnesses from the Ritz Moscow who  saw a “row” in the lobby of the Ritz on the night in  question—as a group of women argued with the hotel staff about  whether they would need to sign in or give their names in order to  go up to Trump’s room. The  evidence included a whistle-blower from within Trump Org who  confirmed the events, as well as multiple Ritz staff members  besides the American staying at the Ritz who saw the row. The  evidence included contradictory stories given by Trump and his  bodyguard, Keith Schiller. The  evidence included the fact that the best friend of a key member of  Trump’s Moscow entourage runs Moscow’s largest “dark web”  brothel; the evidence included actual dollar-amounted payoffs to  Trump’s bodyguard Schiller and much more—including spy craft  evidence—of the event. The  presumption of *all* these stories was that the blackmail had been  coordinated by Trump’s Kremlin-connected Moscow business partner,  Aras Agalarov, the man who runs the “Crocus Group” (a  Russian business entity) and is known for being Putin’s favorite  real estate builder. Vladimir  Putin had *personally* given Agalarov Russia’s highest civilian  honor just 10 days before Trump arrived in Moscow to be  surreptitiously taped by Agalarov. (NOTE: major-media citations for  all these statements are in PROOF OF […]

Russia viewed Trump’s victory as their victory, and when he won, they rushed in

The biggest redaction from the Mueller report is the one we can’t even see—the counterintelligence operation, the primarily FBI-led effort to to assess and counter Russian influence on Trump before and after the election—is entirely missing from...
