JOHN SOLOMON BOMBSHELL: Key Figure That Mueller Report Linked to Russia Was Actually a State Department Intel Source
According to award-winning journalist John Solomon, a key figure that the Mueller report linked to Russia was actually a State Department intel source.
In Mueller’s report, Ukrainian businessman, Konstantin Kilimnik — the so-called Russian who Paul Manafort shared internal polling data with (gasp) isn’t a Russian, he’s actually as a “sensitive” intelligence source for the U.S. State Department who informed on Ukrainian and Russian matters, reported Solomon.
John Solomon reviewed hundreds of pages of government documents proving Kilimnik is indeed a State Department intel source — even worse, Mueller possessed these documents since 2018.
This very important piece of information was omitted from Mueller’s report once again showing just how corrupt and criminal the special counsel’s investigation was.
John Solomon of The Hill:
The incomplete portrayal of Kilimnik is so important to Mueller’s overall narrative that it is raised in the opening of his report. “The FBI assesses” Kilimnik “to have ties to Russian intelligence,” Mueller’s team wrote on page 6, putting a sinister light on every contact Kilimnik had with Manafort, the former Trump campaign chairman.
What it doesn’t state is that Kilimnik was a “sensitive” intelligence source for State going back to at least 2013 while he was still working for Manafort, according to FBI and State Department memos I reviewed.
Kilimnik was not just any run-of-the-mill source, either.
He interacted with the chief political officer at the U.S. Embassy in Kiev, sometimes meeting several times a week to provide information on the Ukraine government. He relayed messages back to Ukraine’s leaders and delivered written reports to U.S. officials via emails that stretched on for thousands of words, the memos show.
The FBI knew all of this, well before the Mueller investigation concluded.
Alan Purcell, the chief political officer at the Kiev embassy from 2014 to 2017, told FBI agents that State officials, including senior embassy officials Alexander Kasanof and Eric Schultz, deemed Kilimnik to be such a valuable asset that they kept his name out of cables for fear he would be compromised by leaks to WikiLeaks.
It gets worse…
Kilimnik was portrayed as a Russian sympathizer in Mueller’s report even though the special counsel’s team had all of the FBI interviews with State officials, as well as Kilimnik’s intelligence reports to the U.S. Embassy, says John Solomon.
FBI sources have confirmed to Solomon that Kilimnik was very upset over the Russian invasion of Crimea — he was not a Russian sympathizer.
John Solomon also reviewed scores of State Department emails that contain intelligence from Kilimnik corroborating his sources, further poking holes in Mueller’s report.
Those emails raise further doubt about the Mueller report’s portrayal of Kilimnik as a Russian agent. They show Kilimnik was allowed to visit the United States twice in 2016 to meet with State officials, a clear sign he wasn’t flagged in visa databases as a foreign intelligence threat.
The emails also show how misleading, by omission, the Mueller report’s public portrayal of Kilimnik turns out to be.
For instance, the report makes a big deal about Kilimnik’s meeting with Manafort in August 2016 at the Trump Tower in New York.
By that time, Manafort had served as Trump’s campaign chairman for several months but was about to resign because of a growing controversy about the millions of dollars Manafort accepted as a foreign lobbyist for Yanukovych’s party.
Here’s the worst part…
Mueller’s report stated that Kilimnik delivered a ‘peace plan’ to the Trump campaign for settling the Crimea conflict between Russia and Ukraine…but there is just one problem…
State Department emails reviewed by John Solomon reveal this exact peace plan was delivered to the Obama Administration in May of 2016 during Kilimnik’s visit to Washington DC.
“Kilimnik requested the meeting to deliver in person a peace plan for Ukraine that Manafort acknowledged to the Special Counsel’s Office was a ‘backdoor’ way for Russia to control part of eastern Ukraine,” the Mueller report stated.
But State emails showed Kilimnik first delivered a version of his peace plan in May 2016 to the Obama administration during a visit to Washington. Kasanof, his former handler at the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine, had been promoted to a top policy position at State, and the two met for dinner on May 5, 2016.
The day after the dinner, Kilimnik sent an email to Kasanof’s official State email address recounting the peace plan they had discussed the night before.
“So Kilimnik’s delivery of the peace plan to the Trump campaign in August 2016 was flagged by Mueller as potentially nefarious, but its earlier delivery to the Obama administration wasn’t mentioned. That’s what many in the intelligence world might call “deception by omission.”” John Solomon said.
The Mueller/Weissmann dossier is full of lies and it’s time Mueller and his team were investigated for prosecutorial misconduct.
Congressman Mark Meadows (R-NC) said Thursday evening that looking at the Mueller report, there are multiple omissions, (exculpatory omissions)… other material facts are just not accurate in the Mueller Report.
