A New JBSFC

Wed, Jul 12, 2017 - 9:21am

John and Steve returned last evening to discuss the New Cold War and add some historical perspective to the latest events.

Though there were signs of détente at last week's G-20 meeting in Hamburg, The War Party is already moving to derail any progress that was made between Putin and Trump. As you might expect, Mr. Batchelor and Professor Cohen were all over these developments last evening as they returned from a one week break due to last week's Independence Day holiday.

There are still many moving parts in this New Cold War...from Syria to Ukriane to "Russiagate"...and John and Steve try to hit all of them in this latest update. Please be sure to give it a listen.

DOJ let Russian lawyer into US before she met with Trump

The Russian lawyer who penetrated Donald Trump’s inner circle was initially cleared into the United States by the Justice Department under “extraordinary circumstances” before she embarked on a lobbying campaign last year that ensnared the president’s eldest son, members of Congress, journalists and State Department officials, according to court and Justice Department documents and interviews.

This revelation means it was the Obama Justice Department that enabled the newest and most intriguing figure in the Russia-Trump investigation to enter the country without a visa.

Later, a series of events between an intermediary for the attorney and the Trump campaign ultimately led to the controversy surrounding the president's eldest son.

Just five days after meeting in June 2016 at Trump Tower with Donald Trump Jr., presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner and then Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Moscow attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya showed up in Washington in the front row of a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on Russia policy, video footage of the hearing shows.

She also helped arrange an event at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. where pro-Russian supporters showed a movie that challenged the underpinnings of the U.S. human rights law known as the Magnitysky Act, which Russian leader Vladimir Putin has reviled and tried to reverse.
