Russian government infiltrated Jewish and Christian Orthodox churches for ‘intelligence’ purposes: Fusion GPS founder

Published

on

In his testimony before the House Intelligence Committee, the CEO of the company behind the infamous Trump-Russia dossier claimed he had information that led him to believe Russian President Vladimir Putin infiltrated Jewish groups in the United States.

“Putin seems to be very interested in the Jewish diaspora,” Fusion GPS CEO Glenn Simpson said in his November testimony before the committee, which was released on Thursday.

He went on to explain there was “definitely something interesting” about the Kremlin’s focus on the conservative Jewish community, particularly the Chabad movement known throughout the United States as being a hub for more Orthodox Jews.

“Putin essentially took over the Russian Jewish community and the leadership of the Russian Jewish community,” Simpson claimed before the committee. “And [it] appears, for reasons I can’t fully explain to be — this appears to be a very interesting route for the Russians.”

The research firm executive explained that Russians use special interest groups ranging from trade to ethnic association groups to religious groups to achieve their inroads. He also claimed the Russian “Orthodox church is also an [arm] of the Russian State now.”

“When I used to do terrorism reporting, the Mossad guys used to tell me about how the Russians were laundering money through the Orthodox church in Israel, and that it was intelligence operations,” Simpson told the committee.

Never Trump conservative Tim Miller interviewed nine different GOP consultants for a Rolling Stone article published this week, and they candidly discussed Trump’s chances of winning a second term.

CNN’s Anderson Cooper exposes Trump’s lies on COVID deaths: He ‘doesn’t want you to know the whole story’

Published

On CNN Tuesday, anchor Anderson Cooper laid into President Donald Trump for his false narratives about the coronavirus pandemic.

"New modeling from the University of Washington today forecasts 208,000 people in this country may be dead of COVID-19 by Election Day," said Cooper. "Which the president still does not seem to think is all that bad. Because he is still repeating the same falsehoods as ever about testing and mortality, which fell for a while, but is once again sadly, sickeningly, ticking up."

"We have more cases because we're doing more testing," said Trump in the clip. "We have more cases. If we did half the testing, we'd have far fewer cases but people don't view it that way. What they have to view, though, is if you look at the chart, and maybe Mike has it, but we looked at it before, if you look at the chart of deaths, deaths are way down. What we want to do is get our schools open. We want to get them open quickly, beautifully in the fall."

‘The lifetime of lies and hideous behavior is finally catching up’: Trump ghostwriter Tony Schwartz

Published

on

Art of the Deal ghostwriter/co-author Tony Schwartz isn't surprised by the facts included in the book about President Donald Trump by his niece. In fact, it only confirms what Schwartz said he discovered about Trump since they met.

While Schwartz said that he met Fred Trump Sr. in the late stages of Alzheimer's, he said that he learned about the elder Trump from his son, who "often acknowledged to me that [Fred Trump] was rough and tough and abusive and difficult. He wouldn't have used the word abusive because he wouldn't have been comfortable saying that, but it was the impression that I certainly took away."
