Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin testified under oath in October, 2016, that he was working with the federal government on “election security.”

I’m working with the Department of Justice right now to protect the, this coming election. There’s been a lot of information about hacking by Russians.

There are also indications that he was involved with Ukrainian interests associated with the Democrats and the now-deposed Poroshenko regime. The TKPOTD for three years ago looked at one of Kimberlin’s Ukrainian connections.

One of the Kimberlin-related websites that has recently disappeared was manafortwatch dot org. The site had an … um … interesting history. Here are the first few lines of the domain’s WHOIS data:

Domain Name: MANAFORTWATCH.ORG
Registry Domain ID: D189396510-LROR
Registrar WHOIS Server: whois.godaddy.com
Registrar URL: http://www.whois.godaddy.com
Updated Date: 2019-08-30T08:10:23Z
Creation Date: 2016-07-19T01:06:01Z
Registry Expiry Date: 2020-07-19T01:06:01Z

… and here is the site’s hosting history:

The domain was registered through GoDaddy on 10 August, 2016 and initially hosted on a GoDaddy server (50.63.202.34), but two days later, it was moved to the Fintel Associates server (209.188.0.218) that hosts the Justice Through Music Project and Protect Our Elections websites. On 10 August, 2019, the site was moved back to a GoDaddy server (184.168.221.90), and on 1 September, it was taken down well before the expiration date for the registration.

Here’s the interesting thing about that timeline. The domain was registered one week before the New York Times broke the story of the Ukrainian ledger detailing payments made to Manafort. It seems that someone with insider knowledge of the Ukrainian National Anti-Corruption Bureau’s claims about the ledger was involved in registering the domain.

We know that Alexandra Chalupa was working through her Ukrainian contacts to dig up dirt on Manafort. We know that she was working with Kimberlin through that time period.

Hmmmmm.

One of Brett Kimberlin’s corporate entities is called Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc. It’s 501(c)(4) not-for-profit status was revoked by the IRS several years ago. Protect Our Elections, which is also registered as a trade name of Kimberlin’s Justice Through Music Project entity, has been involved in election-related activities, the exact nature of which are a bit unclear. Kimberlin has claimed under oath that he and his operation were involved with election security work with the Department of Justice during the 2016 election.

EMPR appears to stand of EuroMaidan PR, an English-language Ukrainian propaganda website. While the Mueller investigation was ongoing, Kimberlin ran a website promoting the Russian Dossier Hoax. Like so many of his web domains, it’s now long gone.

Protect Our Elections?

Our who?

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The State Department’s Rewards for Justice program is offering a reward of up to $10 million for information on foreign interference in U.S. elections.

The reward offer seeks information leading to the identification or location of any foreign person or entity who knowingly engaged or is engaging in foreign election interference. The reward offer also seeks information leading to the prevention, frustration, or favorable resolution of an act of foreign election interference, including by dismantling, in whole or significant part, an organization engaged in such activity.

Will Brett Kimberlin and Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc be able to cash in?

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Even though Brett Kimberlin changed the corporate name of Velvet Revolution US to Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc., he’s kept the velvetrevolution dot us domain register active and a not-well-maintained website alive.Here’s an example of a post that passes for “latest news.”Now if I were someone who bragged about being involved in the effort to “secure” the 2016 election and had connections to … well, let’s just say given  the way the Russia Collusion Hoax investigation is going, I probably wouldn’t hav a post like that up on my website.

OTOH, that post has been up for over five years, and it still has no comments, so maybe keeping it up isn’t all that risky.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The TKPOTD for the 20th was about a post at the empr dot media site by Alexandra Chalupa. That website appears to be operated by Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc., an entity run by Brett Kimberlin which has had its 501(c)4 status revoked by the IRS. Ms. Chalupa was involved with Ukrainian-related aspects of the Russia Collusion Hoax. Her post at the EMPR website, which had be recycled from her Substack page, contained the patently false claim that “Putin planted and managed in the White House for four years – Donald J. Trump.”

Her post has received no comments on Substack, but it has snagged one at EMPR.

EMPR’s coverage of Trump was never friendly or even neutral. I wonder if they think Biden is really better for Ukraine.

Hmmmm.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Once in a while, the Kimberlin EMPR Media website gets a sharp bump in traffic when I take a look at it. Last night, I read a recent post in the “Analytics” section a claim that “Putin planted and managed in the White House for four years – Donald J. Trump.” The post was written by Alexandra Chalupa who also posted it at Substack on 8 December, well after the recent indictments of Michael Sussmann and Igor Danchenko, but Ms. Chalupa is still trying to peddle the lies behind the Russia Collusion Hoax. In 2016, she was involved in Democrat activities related to the Russia/Ukraine/Trump spin campaign. She was later involved at least tangentially in Michale Avenatti’s abortive presidential campaign feelers.

On her Substack page she describes herself as “[b]lamed by the Kremlin and GOP for the Russia probe; falsely accused of working with Ukraine to “sabotage” Trump while Trump worked with Putin to sabotage the U.S.”

I don’t believe those accusations are false.

The Left’s Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Week

Monday was a bit of a rocky start with the Supreme Court hearing oral arguments about challenges to the Texas law that allows citizens to bring lawsuits against persons who perform abortions. Based on the justices’ questions, the case isn’t a slam dunk for either side. A win for the Left isn’t a gimme.

Tuesday was election day. The Democrats lost bigly in Virginia, and were reduced to referring to the first black woman to win state-wide office as a “white supremacist.” They lost a special election in Texas in a heavily Latino legislative district. Most stunning, they barely able to keep the vote within the margin of theft in New Jersey.

Wednesday, oral arguments in the challenge to the New York handgun permitting system were heard by the Supreme Court. Most commentators are projecting a 6 to 3 decision vindicating the petitioners’ Second Amendment rights. (I’m betting on 5 to 4.)

Thursday, the first actual arrest was made in the Russia Collusion Hoax case. The supporting indictment filed by Special Prosecutor John Durham paints a picture of collusion by the Clinton campaign with Russians.

Friday, was the day that Nancy Pelosi was going give Joe Xiden a win by passing his more-than-a-trillion dollar “infrastructure” bill. She failed to do so, and also failed to move the legislation for the Build Back Better scam either.

And that’s just some of what went right this week.

UPDATE—Well, well, well … Mrs. Pelosi did move some legislation. She did get the Senate’s version of the infrastructure bill through 228 to 206 (7 not voting). 13 Republicans voted for the bill: Katko, Bacon, Van Drew, Young, Upton, Kinzinger, Gonzalez, Fitzpatrick, Reed, Gabarino, Malliotakis, McKinley, and Smith of New Jersey. Pelosi couldn’t have pulled this off without that Republican support. It will be interesting to see how many of these congresscritters are reelected.

An Arrest

It’s being reported that federal agents have arrested Steele dossier contributor Igor Danchenko. Special Prosecutor John Durham’s investigation resulted in a still sealed indictment, so the charge(s) is(are) not yet public.

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

UPDATE—The Danchenko indictment has been unsealed. He’s charged with 5 counts 18 USC 1001 (False Statements) for lies he allegedly told the FBI. The case is filed in the Eastern District of Virginia, It won’t be tried by a DC jury.

I’m reading through the indictment during my lunch break. It looks pretty ugly for the Clinton campaign so far.

More later.

UPDATE—Igor Danchenko was arrested by “federal authorities,” but perhaps not by the FBI. Hmmmm.

UPDATE 2—Looking at the Criminal Case Cover Sheet on the court docket, I see that the Complaint Agency is the FBI. Hmmmmmmm.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The Gentle Reader who has been following The Saga of Team Kimberlin for several years may remember that one of Brett Kimberlin’s failed attempts at being seen as an important player was his involvement in the Russia Collusion Hoax. He’s since tried to scrub the Internet of his connections to that scam. For example russiadossier dot org has been gone for almost two years now.But it’s well backed up offline, as is his 2016 testimony about working with the Justice Department on election integrity. And the Internet still remembers his spending $9,000 on fake documents sought to smear a Trump appointee.

If he’s lucky, he’ll be treated as the small fish he really is.

Nothing to See Here. Move Along.

White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan is a potential target of Special Counsel John Durham’s Russia Collusion Hoax investigation. Sullivan’s wife Maggie Goodlander clerked for Attorney General Merrick Garland when Garland was a federal judge.

The Rumor Mill

Over the last day or so, I’ve been seeing reports that Special Counsel John Durham has issued some subpoenas to interesting individuals and organizations. This morning, I’m seeing reports that the grand jury he has convened has issued further sealed indictments beyond the one of Michael Sussmann for lying to the FBI.

If Durham intends to prosecute the collusion hoaxers, he needs to secure indictments before the five year statute of limitations for federal crimes runs out. The next few months could be quite interesting.

Stay tuned.

As summer slipped into autumn in 2016, the buzz around Washington was about the Russia Collusion Hoax being stirred up by the Clinton Campaign and “Tech Executive-1.” As part of his attempts to appear to be a real player (as opposed to a disposable hack), Brett Kimberlin offered the following testimony under oath in October, 2016, during a Maryland civil trial.Gentle Reader, I find it hard to believe that “Tech Executive-1” was relying on The Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin or his “specialists in cyber hacking.” It may be that they had some small part of the Russia Collusion Hoax, but was Brett a significant player?

Of course not.

But That Was Four or Five … uh … Years Ago

As of 9 am ET this morning, this could still be found on TwitterAnd in other news, the New York Times has reported that Special Prosecutor John Durham is considering an indictment for lying to the FBI against one of the lawyers involved in spinning the false tale about the Trump Organization and Alfa Bank.

BTW, Jake Sullivan is the current White House Chief of Staff.

Nothing to see here. Move along.

Brett Kimberlin is no stranger to failure. The TKPOTD for six years ago today emphasized that point with respect to the first of his RICO LOLsuits against me.

* * * * *

Here is what Judge Hazel has had to say about The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s RICO Madness—

Kimberlin failed to plead … Kimberlin has failed to adequately plead … Kimberlin has failed to state a claim … Kimberlin has failed to allege … Kimberlin has therefore failed to plead … Kimberlin has failed to adequately plead … he has failed … he has failed … He has failed to do so … the SAC fails to allege … Kimberlin has therefore failed … Kimberlin has failed … Kimberlin has therefore failed to plead … Kimberlin has failed … his SAC failed to identify … attempt would also fail … Kimberlin has therefore failed … Kimberlin failed … necessarily must fail … he has failed … Kimberlin has failed to adequately plead … claim would still fail … Kimberlin has failed … Kimberlin has failed … would still fail … Kimberlin has failed … Kimberlin has failed to allege … Kimberlin has therefore failed … has failed to state a claim … because he has “fail[ed] to plead facts” … must be dismissed as he has failed to plead facts … Kimberlin has failed … dismissal of § 1985(2) claim for failure to allege … his failure … Kimberlin has failed to state claims …

Plaintiff is mistaken.

Yep, that about covers it.

* * * * *

He failed at drug smuggling, and he failed at running an import/export business to/from Ukraine during his first parole. He has failed as a musician. He’s failed …

It was four years ago that Brett Kimberlin found himself mentioned in a national news story about one of the early attempts to use fake documents to attack the Trump Administration. Four years ago today, that provided More Brett Kimberlin News here at Hogewash!.

* * * * *

The Daily Caller has a piece up that looks into Brett Kimberlin’s connection to a former Democratic National Committee official and the forged documents recently debunked by BuzzFeed.

Hmmmm.

* * * * *

Kimberlin provided at least $ 9,000 in funding for the acquisition of those fake documents. That’s a lot of money for someone who pays himself only $ 19,500 from his “charity.” Where did that money come from? The Gentle Reader’s guess may or may not be as good as mine, but the exact source remains unproven.
