Page 49 of the Page transcript. Dude... even GOWDY was like "Are you KIDDING ME? CUT THE BS!" πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ This stuff is RIVETING.
2. OMG Gowdy's all "did you tell Trump ppl you were going to Moscow?" Page "err um zz rbirbri yeah. Multiple people". G: "WHY THE HELL?"
3. P "Well I wanted to be careful there were started to be rumors about Russia in press!" Gowdy "If you were being careful WHY DID YOU GO?"
4. P. "well I was trying to live my life!" G " If it was UNRELATED to Trump campaign why did you feel need to email them?" πŸ˜‚ I am laughing .
5. Gowdy bubble thought "am I REALLY dealing with this idiot ? How the HELL did he end up in any of this? and I'm supposed to save Trump?"πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
6. Gowdy " WHAT were you worried about? WHAT was the genesis of your desire for caution?" I am DYING here! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
7. ACTUAL news, when Gowdy's about ready to strangle Page, Page ADMITS HE WAS INTERVIEWED BY FBI. "EXTENSIVE SERIES OF MANY MEETINGS".
8. Gowdy" WHAT were the questions?" Page "Mainly about dodgy dossier" G" It's dossier. You say some FACTUAL things in there are false?"
9. Page "ALL OF THE STUFF ABOUT ME IS FALSE!" Gowdy: DUDE PLEASE! "Every word? That's a big statement, Dr. Page. Gowdy's thought:
10. After Page desperately tries to deny meeting with Sechin and Diveykin, Gowdy is all, "i've got two minutes left. BUT NOPE! I'm OUT!" πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
11. THIS is how bad this was. Page managed to wear out GOWDY who clearly was willing to HELP him and Trump, but Page is just THAT stupid.
12. Ok now we get to @RepAdamSchiff part of Page's questioning. I can smell the blood already.
13. Page is grasping at straws re: invoking fifth amendment re: delivering docs to committee and Schiff is all "THE FUN IS OVER, KIDDO." πŸ˜‚
14. Schiff is all "do you seriously think you can invoke the 5th selectively and just give us what DOESN'T incriminate you?" Page "err umm"
15. Page "nothing incriminates me! Plus I was illegally monitored so FBI has it (spoiler: THERE WEREN'T ANY illegal actions)
16. Schiff (wearing his Frank Underwood BITCH PLEASE face) "Do you think you can invoke 5th selectively?" This is priceless.
17. In short, Page tried to claim HIS LIFE was in danger, terrorists threatened him bc of SCHIFF'S public convo with Comey πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
18. Well when you're a Russia-sold criminal, chances are you'll get that polonium tea or a bullet in your head, Carter.
19. Schiff is all "spew out which emails you use, kiddo. AND what phone apps, AND your phone number." Page "BUT DOMESTIC TERRORIST THREATS!"
20. Schiff "well that phone number can be off the record but YOU wanted this public and so did the majority" (subtitle: DUMBASS!)
21. Rooney tries to have a RIDICULOUS argument with Schiff re: Page number and Schiff says he wants Page to be under oath when telling them
22. Conaway who isn't as dumb as Rooney, sides with Schiff and says he'll have to give the number under oath.
23. Schiff then NAILS Page for having MORE than one number. I swear Schiff can eat them all for breakfast.
24. Schiff then proceeds to ROAST Page over CONCEALING his Russian comms or advising others to do so. This is beautiful. Page 69-70
25. Page (I can see the sweat) "I have nothing to conceal my metings are all benign! The dodgy dossier libeled me!" Schiff: "TRY AGAIN".
26. Schiff NAILS Page for lying during Hayes' interview about NOT meeting RU officials. "You think Deputy PM of Russia is NOT an official?"
27. P "but I didn't meet him I just greeted him!" Schiff "so no private meeting THEN. What about AFTER?" P "oh yeah, we privately met". πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
28. Page's stupidity is astounding. Schiff obviously has him wrapped around his pinky and could make him admit TO MURDER.
29. Schiff "following your Russia trip did you send a memo back to the campaign that conveyed the results?" Page "YES! Gave them the 411" πŸ˜‚
30. Another BINGO from Schiff. LOL Page is so deviously stupid he thinks he can LIE and then when pressed he fesses up. Unreal.
31. So Schiff has made Page admit that he HAD a PRIVATE meeting with Deputy Russia PM in Dec 2016 AND he gave campaign 411 on Russia trip.
32. Make no mistake, Page is an idiot and sounds like an idiot bc he LIES so much he CANNOT keep lies straight. And Schiff NAILS him.
33. Schiff NAILS Page for ANOTHEr lie. HE DID privately meet Russia Deputy PM in July, too. Schiff reads Page email aloud & Page admits.
34. Schiff is all "didn't you just tell me the opposite TWO DAMN MINUTES AGO?" Also Schiff to himself "I'm NOT paid enough for this"πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
35. Page (I'm quoting VERBATIM) "It was a general sentiment of, you know, hope for the future. That's all he expressed in that brief hello"
36. In essence, Page is trying to qualify a freaking exchange with Russia's DEPUTY PM, ABOUT TRUMP, as a "brief hello/hope for future".
37. Schiff probably kept a straight face bc he could smell the blood, and he made Page admit to TWO major things AND caught him in lies.
38. Schiff was all "you lied straight to my face two mins ago AND on TV two nights ago. Really, dude? NO." Page "but but it was 10 secs!" πŸ˜‚
39. OMG! Schiff is all "this email, is it one of those you refused to provide?" Page "er um yeah, I'll give it to you." Schiff "WE HAVE IT"
40. And Page repeats that docs/comms were ILLEGALLY taken from him (by FBI with surveillance that is). Schiff is all "PLEASE. BYE."
41. In the end, of course Schiff makes Page admit he did withhold this incriminating email. And well I JUST READ IT TO YOU, so BUSTED.
42. Then Schiff makes Page repeat he ONLY met with ONE official and BUSTS him as in EMAIL to campaign Page mentions OFFICIALS, plural.
43. Yet again Schiff reads email aloud and makes Page confirm he DID write that email. Like stealing candy from a kid.
44. Page desperately tries to claim that he is talking about just info he got from forums ornewspapers. Schiff does NOT buy it.
45. And the rest, I will document tomorrow bc I MUST get sleep but at this point Schiff yet again makes meatballs of Page and DROPS THE MIC.
46. And i mean literally, bc at this point time is over and Schiff is done with his questioning (for now, LOL).
47. So Batman Schiff then took care of Conaway who was all "We did tell you about the idiot here pleading the Fifth!"
48. Schiff is all: "Dude I'm not talking about way back when, I'm talking about THIS disgraceful hearing". Conaway "Oh wait then..."
49. Conaway: "Because I'm a bit offended that he's got those docs when he told us he didn't." Conaway thought: "Burn him, Batman!":-D
50. At this point GOWDY takes the mic again and he's all "You better answer me damn quick so I won't use my other time bc I refuse"
51. Gowdy again asks Page abt FBI interviews and Page says that JUST IN 2017, he had "4 or 5 meetings" with them. YOU READ THAT RIGHT.
52. Even Gowdy knows his chicken by now: "Yeah what about 2016, genius?" Page "Can't recall, I'm always very cautious to not take notes."
53. Gowdy: "I try to be cautious, too Mr. Page but it is not difficult for me to remember the number of timed FBI interviewed me in 2016..."
54. Gowdy (cont):" BECAUSE THE ANSWER WOULD BE ZERO." No, I didn't inject humor here, this is the Gowdy burn VERBATIM. I'm dying here!
55. More later as life obliges me to use a damn phone right now and it's like having a root canal.
So... we were here. And boy, I had tears in my eyes laughing because GOWDY delivering such a BURN to Page is not something I ever thought I'd see.
56. So... Gowdy just burnt Page like a charbroiled chicken, then he's all "I'm just wondering if you can recall whether FBI interviewed you in 2016?"
57. Page *lists US District court, Southern District of NY, or US Attorney's Office there on criminal side* "It was during that case related to Mr. Podobnyy..."
58. Page "I can't remember the exact timing". OH AND BTW THEY TOTALLY LEAKED I WAS INDEED MALE n.1 ILLEGALLY! Not even GOWDY listens to this. πŸ˜‚
59. Gowdy's bubble thought "I.just.can't!". Gowdy to Page "I'm not sure the manner in which you're referring. Would it be unrelated to campaign?"
60. Page (eager schoolgirl voice) "TOTALLY unrelated! ABSOLUTELY!" Gowdy is all "Did ANY OTHER law enforcement entities interview you/talk to you?" bc by now he KNOWS Page lies.
61. Page then launches on a tirade that is freaking disrespectfully CENSORED from doc (bc classified I assume) so I can only infer he's relating some govt activity to police activity.
62. Gowdy is all "I hope not. I don't think so". And then the following sentence is ALSO redacted and I this is how I KNOW this stuff is good and they're depriving us of it!
63. Page AGAIN tries his ridiculous #deza says "there's overlap between the two". Gowdy manages not to slap him and says "I hope not, you're telling us something we don't know".
64. Page then shows what a GOOD citizen he is bc he hasn't gotten speeding tickets in over 10 years and doesn't that make him nice, bright shiny and awesome? πŸ˜‚
65: Gowdy is all "well thank you for that info... I GUESS? πŸ™„" Then "I'm trying to understand law enforcement's interest in you..."
66. "... with respect to the jurisdiction of this committee, what we're investigating. And how many times they interviewed you re: Russia?"
67. Page here gives MORE NEWS. He says "approximately four" (no it's more) AND adds "I was in a lobby near Lincoln Center & they just walked up to me".
68. Raise your hand if the FBI just walked up to you as you were minding your own business around Lincoln Center?🀣🀣
69. I've been to Lincoln Center a few times when in NYC and I was never approached by FBI. Then again, I was a tourist, not a RU asset.
70. Page is all "Usually they call me and we exchange pleasantries. But in March 2017 they just walked up to me!" Gowdy:
71. Page "And I was SO HAPPY to see them bc I had sent a letter to Comey on Sept 25 2016 after the world premiere of the DODGY DOSSIER". NO no no, HOLD UP.
72. This is ME interfering, Page. The world premiere of the IN MANY WAYS ACCURATE Steele dossier WAS JAN 2017, NOT Sept 2016. You are LYING again.
73. And now election results are going to start flowing in, so we'll reprise this later. Not to worry, MORE Gowdy, Batman Schiff, Swallwell et al goodness coming!

1. Simon Kukes, a Houston-based oil executive, sent an email to a Russian official in Moscow in July 2016, boasting of his connections to Trump campaign and requesting a face-to-face meeting. The official is Vyacheslav Pavlovsky, a former Russian ambassador to Norway.
2. NBC HAS THE EMAILS. Kukes wrote to Pavlovsky" I have been actively involved in Trump's election campagn, and am part of the group on strategy deveopment. I will be in Switzerland July 20 to Aug. 2. Let me know how you are doing and whether you want to meet." Oh. OH.
3. NBC obtained emails through a London-based investigative project funded by MIkhail Khodorkovsky, a Russian opposition figure. The Dossier Center gathers information to try to expose high-level corruption in Moscow. NBC reviewed the emails in conjunction with The Guardian.

1. MANAFORT AGREED TO PLEA DEAL WITH MUELLER. Politely bear in mind, no matter what we actually SEE of this, given the evidence Mueller has, there's NO WAY Mueller entered a plea deal without meaningful cooperation. The cooperation part? Can easily be sealed.
2. This means Manafort could easily do the same as Cohen. Just plead guilty to n. counts, and we don't see any "cooperation" agreement. That doesn't mean it doesn't exist. The two can easily be separated, with the cooperation agreement sealed for obvious reasons here.
3. I absolutely don't think the news about the "joint defense agreement" is current and I also think it is being put out for a specific reason. It's clear that there's been coordinated effort to make everyone think Manafort won't "flip" . That's the easiest way to protect him.

1. Manafort is INDEED in talks with prosecutors (MEANING MUELLER bc HE is the prosecutor in this case) about a possible plea deal. BLOOP, people. BLOOP!
2. Two people familiar with the matter "cautioned that the negotiations may not result in a deal with special counsel Robert Mueller". Naturally, bc there won't be a deal unless Manafort sings like the birdiest birdie that has ever sung.
3. "But the discussions indicate a possible shift in strategy for Manafort" No kidding. When the prospect of the rest of his life in prison materialized, Manafort finally saw that oopsie, he was cornered and if he ever wanted to enjoy life again? Best to talk to Mueller, stat.

OH IMAGINE THAT. Guess who knows all about this? Michael Cohen. Who took care of this type of business. FOR TRUMP.
2. The details of the story are BEYOND disgusting but pay attention to this detail that former Playmate Shera Bechard cites in her LAWSUIT against Broidy: "Bechard recalled Broidy telling her that he admired Trump’s "uncanny ability to sexually abuse women and get away with it.""
3. "Among Bechard’s allegations are that Broidy refused to wear condoms and didn’t disclose to her that he had genital herpes until years after their sexual relationship, according to a court filing. "
Not even going to comment.

1. Bruce Ohr is the Justice Department lawyer who was told by Christopher Steele that Russian intelligence believed it had Trump "over a barrel". Start seeing why Trump is going after him?
2. These details pertain to a breakfast that happened on July 30, 2016. Ohr described the breakfast to CONGRESS this week in a private interview. And that's how the GOP Trump lackeys went to tell Trump, he found out and decided he can't have a witness at DoJ.
3. So if Trump so much as THINKS of touching Bruce Ohr, that is direct obstruction of justice, and his tweets already constitute witness tampering. AND everyone in Congress who was present at the interview KNOWS that. Just so you know who to hold accountable.

1. What Cohen's actually explosive knowledge of facts covers, that can make the entire house of cards crash: the hacking and the Trump Tower meeting, both of which TRUMP KNEW about and in the hacking case, an event Trump even encouraged.
2. In the case of the hacking, there's a $50,000 mysterious payment Cohen made to an undisclosed tech company to help the Trump campaign, that awfully sounds like the arrangements the Steele dossier says Cohen made to pay off Russian hackers "without it being traced".
3. Cohen's lawyer Lanny Davis specifically said on @maddow that Cohen has knowledge about the hacking that is of interest for Mueller. And the detail of the tech company payment emerged from the indictment. If the connection is accurate (and it seems like it is), this is huge.
