Wayne Madsen ReportFebruary 27-28, 2017 — A “CIA within the CIA” battles against Trump

Even before he was inaugurated on January 20, President Trump faced a virtual “CIA within the CIA” that is bound and determined to derail his intelligence and foreign policy agendas. Past presidents have faced opposition from the Central Intelligence Agency — John F. Kennedy, Richard Nixon, and Jimmy Carter are prime examples — but the opposition was sub rosa and not out in the open as it is today.

A number of former CIA officers have taken to CNN and MS-NBC to voice their opinions that Trump is a threat to U.S. national security. In addition to venting their own spleens about Trump, they are publicly airing the views of hundreds of their former colleagues currently serving within the CIA.

The conventional punditry in Washington is stressing, without evidence, that Trump’s presidential campaign was helped by “Russian intelligence officials.” A dodgy British memorandum, created by a former MI-6 spook named Christopher Steele, and embellished by the Jeb Bush campaign, which hired him to dig up dirt on Trump, is being used as “proof” of Russian interfered in the U.S. election. However, what is being overlooked is that “Russian intelligence” may be a substitute for “Russian-Israeli mafia.” The Russian-Israeli oligarchs, many of whom are exiled in Britain, Switzerland, and Israel, have no love for Trump and his previous pro-Russian views.

It recently emerged that Ukrainian parliament member Andrey Artemenko met in January with Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, to deliver a proposal that would have “leased” Crimea to Russia for 100 years in exchange for a pullout of Russian troops in eastern Ukraine. The “peace plan” appears to have been a red herring since there is no documented evidence of regular Russian troops in eastern Ukraine. Artemenko is a shady figure who has been involved with the scandal-plagued Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) and who is a member of the party of the corrupt former Ukrainian prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko.

It was Tymoshenko’s criminal conviction and imprisonment by the government of president Viktor Yanukovych that helped propel the “Euromaidan” revolution and coup that drove Yanukovych into exile in Russia. Artemenko is also close to the former Ukrainian boxer Vitali Klitschko, the current mayor of Kiev, who recently attended the Munich Security Conference along with Vice President Mike Pence, Defense Secretary James Mattis, and such anti-Russian U.S. delegates as Senators John McCain, Lindsey Graham, neocon Robert Kagan, and Kagan’s wife Victoria Nuland, the chief architect of the Euromaidan revolution. At Munich, where the CIA was working overtime to cultivate new relationships and reinforce older ones, the plotters of neo-Cold War intrigue in Ukraine were all present. The CIA would have known about Klitschko’s ties to Artemenko and Artemenko’s meeting on the Ukraine peace deal with Trump’s lawyer Cohen.

Trump, who has surrounded himself with shady characters like Stephen Bannon, Stephen Miller, and Hungarian-American fascist Sebastian Gorka, may not be a “puppet” of Russian President Vladimir Putin, as alleged by detractors. Instead, Trump appears to be an unwitting stooge of the Russian-Israeli mafia that wants a green light to depose Putin and replace him with one of their own, someone, for example, like Mikhail Khodorkovsky.

Khodorkovsky, now in exile, is leading the Russian-Israeli oligarchs in their attempt to undermine Putin. International hedge fund tycoon George Soros was also in Munich, rubbing shoulders with Klitschko and his own puppet, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. The intrigue on display in Munich may be complicated, but the end result may be a two-for-one deal for the Russian-Israeli gangsters: the overthrow of Putin and the impeachment of Trump. The result would be a Russian president who would complete the privatization of Russian industry and infrastructure to benefit the exiled mafia oligarchs and a committed “Christian Zionist,” Pence, in the Oval Office…

As delegates were packing up to leave Munich, there was another interesting development in nearby Vienna. An Austrian appeals court approved the extradition to the United States of Ukrainian oligarch Dmytro Firtash where he faces corruption charges. After the Euromaidan coup in 2014, Firtash was arrested by Austrian police on an FBI warrant. Firtash was a close political ally of Yanukovych. Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort was a business partner of Firtash. In 2008, Manafort and Firtash were part of a business team that sought to buy Manhattan’s Drake Hotel and demolish it to make way for a new skyscraper called the Bulgari Tower, a deal that may have involved the Trump Organization. The Drake deal involved another Trump adviser, Richard Gates. While she was prime minister, Tymoshenko sued Firtash over the Drake deal. Now, an ally of Tymoshenko, Artemenko, has his fingerprints on a Ukrainian peace plan shopped to Trump’s lawyer Cohen…

Also in Munich with Pence, Mattis, Kagan, and Nuland was Ukrainian oligarch Viktor Pinchuk, who gave the Trump Foundation $150,000 for a Trump video speech to Pinchuk’s Yalta European Strategy (YES) annual meeting in Ukraine in 2015. Pinchuk, a friend of John McCain, is close to both Poroshenko and Soros and a vocal opponent of Putin.

No one is clean in these machinations but they could very well serve as a basis to impeach Trump under the emolument clause of the U.S. Constitution, which makes any personal profit by the president based on foreign links an impeachable offense.

There are forces within the CIA — the “CIA within the CIA” — that want a return to the days of Boris Yeltsin, when everything and everyone in Russia was for sale and Russia gladly followed the diktats from the World Bank and International Monetary Fund. Two things stand in their way, Putin and the Putin-admiring Trump, the latter not seeming to want to “get with the program” of returning to the status quo ante in U.S.-Russian relations…

An intelligence game is now being played out by Langley and it involves unsavory mafiosi in Ukraine, London, and Langley, Virginia. In essence, a “CIA within the CIA” is attempting to stage a “soft coup” in the United States and they have a number of willing accomplices in the media and within Mr. Trump’s own inner circle.

Among the mafiosi is Felix Sater, one who has done business with both Trump and the CIA. The latter however is not acknowledged here…

Wayne Madsen ReportFebruary 17-20, 2017 — Labor pick Acosta part of Epstein-Trump underage sex crime cover-up

Alexander Acosta, President Trump’s pick to replace failed nominee Andrew Puzder as Labor Secretary, has his own political baggage stemming from his actions as U.S. Attorney for Southern Florida in the sweetheart plea deal involving billionaire pederast Jeffrey Epstein. Acosta agreed to a rather unprecedented non-prosecution agreement (NPA) struck with Epstein and his attorneys on October 30, 2007 that saw the federal government waive any future prosecution of Epstein or any of his associates named or unnamed by underage female sexual abuse victims of Epstein. Epstein pleaded guilty to one state of Florida charge of soliciting prostitution from a 14-year old girl.

Although Acosta later mildly criticized the plea deal in an open letter he write in 2011, he did not respond to WMR’s request in January 2015 for an interview on the civil case in which four of Epstein’s victims sued the U.S. government, claiming that the NPA violated their rights under the Crime Victims’ Rights Act. The victims, who are now adults, claimed that the federal government’s NPA with Epstein violated the 2004 CVRA. Acosta was clearly aiming to protect Epstein’s high-powered friends, including the person who just nominated him as Labor Secretary. Acosta’s letter states: “Our judgment in this [Epstein] case, based on the evidence known at the time, was that it was better to have a billionaire serve time in jail, register as a sex offender, and pay his victims restitution than risk a trial with a reduced likelihood of success.” Epstein’s 13-month “jail time” included the stipulation that he only had to stay in prison in the evening and was free to leave during the day. The Palm Beach Police Department was outraged by Epstein’s plea deal.

The NPA was signed on behalf of Acosta by A. Marie Villafana, the then-Assistant U.S. Attorney for Southern Florida who later became the U.S. Attorney under Attorney General Eric Holder. The plea deal with Epstein was concluded after the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Miami and the FBI investigated Epstein separately from the investigation conducted by the Palm Beach County Police Department and the Florida State Attorney’s Office.  The deal cut between Acosta and Villafana and the state of Florida, which was then under the governorship of Republican Governor Charlie Crist and Republican Attorney-General Bill McCollum stated that the federal government would defer to Florida on the prosecution of Epstein. Acosta went on to become the dean of the law school of Florida International University in Miami.

Flight manifests of Epstein’s Gulfstream jet and Boeing 727 indicate that Epstein’s passengers included a mix of underage sex traffic victims and some of the world’s most powerful politicians and businessmen. These include Bill Clinton, Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers, Chicago Pritzker family chieftain and Hyatt Hotels executive chairman Thomas Pritzker (the first cousin of President Obama’s Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker), and failed Palm Beach mayoral candidate Gerry Goldsmith. Underage passengers included on the manifest include Virginia Roberts and Cindy Lopez and others listed by their first names: Colleen, Tatianna, Margarita, Carolina, Lisa, Margaret, Dana, Julie, and Jessica. Epstein’s two major “procurers” of underage girls are also frequent flyers on Epstein’s “Pederast Airlines” — Ghislaine Maxwell, the daughter of the late publishing tycoon and Mossad asset Robert Maxwell, and Sarah Kellen (now Sarah Kensington), the girlfriend of NASCAR driver Brian Vickers. Up to 40 women were identified as being the victims of sexual abuse by Epstein. Court records indicate the number may be higher with one reference to a Jane Doe 103.

In a later lawsuit filed on September 26, 2016 by another Jane Doe, identified as Katie Johnson, it is alleged that there were three additional underage victims of Epstein — as well as Donald Trump — in 1994. They are Jane Doe (Johnson), Joan Doe, and Maria, the latter a 12-year old girl who Jane, Joan, and a third witness, Tiffany Doe, allege may have been “disappeared” by Trump after he sexually assaulted and raped her at the Wexner Mansion in Manhattan.

Epstein pleaded the Fifth Amendment when asked by FBI agents, “Have you ever socialized with Donald Trump in the presence of females under the age of 18?” Epstein also took the Fifth when the FBI asked him: “Have you ever socialized with Bill Clinton in the presence of females under the age of 18?” Fourteen private phone numbers for Trump and members of his family, including his media-shy brother Robert Trump, Robert’s wife Blaine Trump, Donald Trump ex-wife Ivana Trump, and Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump, are found in Epstein’s address book. [image]

The Senate Labor Committee has an opportunity to ask Acosta about the Epstein plea deal during his confirmation hearing. However, do not expect committee chairman Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) to proceed down such a road of inquiry. Alexander’s chief of staff, Ryan Loskarn, was arrested at his Washington, DC home in December 13 and found with an entire computer hard disk full of child pornographic videos and photos. Loskarn, who was remanded to his Maryland parents’ custody while awaiting arraignment in federal court in Washington, was found hanging in his parents’ basement in January 2014. The cause of death was determined, without a full autopsy, to have been suicide.

APTrump vows to fight ‘epidemic’ of human trafficking

Wayne Madsen’s comment: Trump should start his anti-trafficking campaign by seizing Jeffrey Epstein’s planes and Little St James Island. But then, Jeff may release the pics, audio & video of the Wexner mansion from 1994.
