Another #Amesbury / #Skripal thread

1/ You must read the superb series of articles on Amesbury and Skripal written by Rob Slane at the Blogmire. He leaves no doubt that the government has got it wrong

I want to look at one possibility that's not covered
2/ In part 3 Rob draws on a Daily Mail report about the Skripal's visit to an Italian restaurant.


After a 20 min wait for his meal Skripal becomes agitated and wants to leave. Rob speculates that it's because he has to go and meet someone. But who?
3/ Now let's look back at The Sun's report about Amesbury. Particularly about where drug dealers leave stashes.

It's done in the local parks. Where did Skripal go, agitated, after his lunch? The park.

Soon after he's suffering all the signs of Fentanyl overdose.
4/ Drawing this together it seems highly likely that Skripal was a drug addict.

He was agitated because he was going to miss his rendezvous with his dealer.

Do we have a lead on who that may be? Yes we do. The people with the red bag.
5/ In part 2 of Rob's series, he highlights the CCTV pictures that at one point the media were touting as pictures of Yulia and Sergei Skripal. They were walking towards the bench where they were found just minutes later

Rob points out these are not the Skripals. Two odd things:
a) They appear to be wearing white gloves
b) One is carrying a red bag

A red bag later turns up at the feet of Yulia Skripal while she's slumped on the bench. The police (with no protective clothing) take it way as evidence. It's never mentioned by them again.
7/ It's more than a possibility that the elderly looking couple with the red bag, are either dealers, or passing on Fentanyl to the Skripals.

Them both being drug users explains Yulia and Sergei's reluctance to make statements after recovering. It's not something to boast about
8/ Were the Russian media hinting about Skripal's drug use? CNN reporting of Russia First story on Skripal's poisoning mentions "traitors" slipping into drug addiction..


9 (edit):

A consultant at Salisbury hospital says there was no Novichok poisoning. For those that don't know the UK medical hierarchy; a consultant is the most senior doctor.

So why do the media keep saying Novichok? Mark Urban of the BBC shares an ...
10/ .. interesting link with Pablo Miller, Skripal's MI6 handler (also an employee of Orbis Business Solutions. The UK media are following a D-Notice, not to mention Miller by name). spinwatch.org/index.php/issu…

They were commissioned together into the same regiment. Brothers in arms
11/ #Russiagate watchers will know Orbis who created the Trump "Dirty Dossier".

That report was written in the Russian style, with the names CAPITALISED, but Steele and Miller are English.

Could it be that the "Steele dossier", is actually the "Skripal dossier"?

1/ Another Skripal thread.

From the ludicrous to the impossible.
2/ I've been busy so forgive me if these points have been made better elsewhere. This is crazy.

The Police have provided us with some CCTV images and claimed timings for the #doorknobdesperados, just as they previously did with Sergei Skripal's movements.

There's a problem.
3/ The problem is fairly fundamental:

It doesn't appear that Sergei, or Julia, even had an opportunity to touch their own doorknob!

From the original Police timeline here: news.met.police.uk/news/renewed-a… we see that Skripal was headed out of town in his BMW at 09:15

Here's the route

THREAD on Mueller & Guccifer2.0

1/ Mueller has gone on a Phishing trip, and like most anglers likes to boast about the size of the big one. But there's no evidence of the catch, not even how he reeled them in. We are expected to take his word that "It was *this* big".
2/ I have a *long* standing project in the works looking at Guccifer2.0's documents which is proving to be more than interesting. It should settle it once and for all.

But in the meantime I'd like to look at a few aspects of the new indictment that do not compute.
3/ What Mueller appears to have done is to pick some names that he claims are hackers from "Unit 26165" and "Unit 74455" and claim they hacked the DNC & DCCC. We have no way of knowing if they did, he presents no evidence of *how* they claim to *know* it was these people.

THREAD 2 on #Amesbury:

In the last thread I pointed out that the Amesbury tragedy, and the Skripal poisoning had many clues which pointed to Fentanyl overdose being the culprit rather than Novochok.

2/ Since then more detail has come in about the symptoms of the deceased Dawn Sturgess and her critically ill boyfriend Charley Rowley.

Many papers report that they were "gurgling" and "foaming at the mouth".

The Times, is paywalled, but the the Sun thesun.co.uk/news/6693507/n…
3/ isn't. It's reported in many other places too.

Two of the symptoms of FENTANYL overdose happen to be:

* Gurgling
* Foaming at the mouth

THREAD on Guccifer 1.0. and the Clinton Server.
The awesome @tracybeanz has done some awesome research on timings and co-incidences about Marcel Lazar's (Guccifer1.0) hacking, and timeline meshing with the Page/Strozk texts. Go Read It.

2/ There's a 2017 story by Fox news about Lazar. We see something very interesting: he handed over 70 Gb of data to the FBI, which Fox say is equivalent to 1.75 million pages to the FBI of text.

But Fox are missing one vital detail.
3/ Lazar initially claimed he *had* hacked the Clinton server, and it was *easy*, he later retracted that statement (being in Jail would make you do that). The FBI add that there is no "evidence" he hacked the server.

1/ A thread on the curious tale of dcleaks.com. To which I have no firm answers, just some anomalies and leads I'd like to share.
2/ The spooks are sure about dcleaks in 2017:

dcleaks.com and Guccifer2.0 were named with "High Confidence" as key outlets for stolen DNC data in the 6th January 2017 Intelligence Community reports on Russian interference.

FBI's Priestep testified a direct link
3/ But by 2018 the DNC forgets all about them:

In the recent *DNC Vs Everybody* lawfare suit dcleaks.com is curiously absent. Why is that?

G2.0. is helped along by a conveniently timed article in the Daily Beast. Their parent company is directed by Ms C Clinton
