NYT Publishes Report ‘Debunking’ FBI Use Of Dossier, Immediately Shredded For Fake News

According to the New York Times, the FBI investigation into Russian collusion began after drunken Trump campaign volunteer, George Papadopoulos, reportedly told Australian diplomat Alexander Downer at a London bar in May, 2016 that “Russia had political dirt on Hillary Clinton.” When DNC emails began to leak, Australia apparently contacted US intelligence to report the drunken admission by Papadopoulos – igniting the Russia probe.

This is in stark contrast to GOP leaders who say that a salacious and unverified 34-page opposition research dossier triggered the probe, a claim repeated by President Trump on Tuesday:

Four days later, the New York Times crafted an alternate explanation involving Papadopoulos:

WASHINGTON — During a night of heavy drinking at an upscale London bar in May 2016, George Papadopoulos, a young foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign, made a startling revelation to Australia’s top diplomat in Britain: Russia had political dirt on Hillary Clinton.

About three weeks earlier, Mr. Papadopoulos had been told that Moscow had thousands of emails that would embarrass Mrs. Clinton, apparently stolen in an effort to try to damage her campaign.

Exactly how much Mr. Papadopoulos said that night at the Kensington Wine Rooms with the Australian, Alexander Downer, is unclear. But two months later, when leaked Democratic emails began appearing online, Australian officials passed the information about Mr. Papadopoulos to their American counterparts, according to four current and former American and foreign officials with direct knowledge of the Australians’ role.

The NYT’s Adam Goldman – who worked on the article as part of a six-person effort, tweeted the report, stating “Dossier had nothing to do with @FBI opening July 2016 investigation into Russian election meddling. George Papadopoulos outreach op and Russian hacking did,” which the NYT’s Maggie Haberman retweeted.

Unfortunately for the New York Times – much like CNN’s botched “Bombshell” report from a few weeks ago that Donald Trump Jr. was told about the WikiLeaks emails before their release, only to issue a major correction because Trump Jr. was told after they were made public (by a random person), this “startling revelation” ny the NYT that Papadopoulos spilled the beans about Russia having dirt on Clinton was already public information.

Cue the NYT getting split like a cord of wood by the Conservative Treehouse‘s TheLastRefuge, who dressed down the entire Papadopoulos narrative in a 21-tweet dissertation (below).

The thread begins with this tweet, with the rest condensed below: 

2.) Additionally, worth noting @maggieNYT is nowhere in the Joint Analysis Report [Comey, Brennan and Clapper construct] is anything about George Papadopoulos even hinted or alluded to.
3.) [@maggieNYT ] ABC in Australia is reporting it was Alexander Downer (Australian High Commissioner to UK) who then let counterparts in US know that George Papadopolous was talking about the Sidney Blumental hack via Clinton Emails.
4.) The @maggieNYT is also nonsense based on common sense. Papadopoulos was so important that:

July 15th 2016 Comey opens counterintel investigation into Russian collusion.

January 15th 2017 FBI visits Papadopoulos for first time.

FBI waited for six months to talk to him?

5. @maggieNYT If George Papadopoulos was so important to the FBI “investigation” why did all “intelligence” agencies released their final JAR report without ever speaking to him?
Not even once?
6. No @maggieNYT what you have in your article is a well constructed and brutally familiar pattern of what journalism looks like when the IC use reporters to cover their tracks and create a justification based on a false premise.
7. The Fusion GPS, Glenn Simpson, Mary Jacoby, Nellie Ohr etc. and subsequent Christopher Steele origin of the FISA application source material is a risk to the former leadership within the DOJ National Security Division and FBI Counterintelligence Division.
8. @maggieNYT That’s why both FBI and DOJ sides of this intelligence operation need to create a false origin. The actual FISA application content is a much more explosive risk. Use your common sense logic hat and see when you are being played.
9. @maggieNYT USE COMMON SENSE: If a Papadopolous conversation in May 2016 was the origin, the source material, of the FBI counterintelligence operation, then why were they denied a FISA application in June/July 2016 ?
10. @maggieNYT The wife of Glenn Simpson (Fusion GPS), Mary B. Jacoby, with years of Russia-angled reporting –including Donald Trump– visits the White House on April 19th 2016. white-house-logs.insidegov.com
11. @maggieNYT Mary B Jacoby is a deep part of Clinton’s political camp going all the way back to the Rose Law Firm. You know that because you know her.

After the April 19, 2016, WH visit, the DNC and Clinton campaign hire Mary and Glenn (Fusion GPS) for the “trump project”.

12. @maggieNYT Immediately after Fusion was paid, Glenn Simpson and Mary Jacoby (Fusion GPS Patriarchs), hire Nellie Ohr.
13. @maggieNYT As you know, Nellie Ohr is the wife of DOJ Deputy Bruce Ohr. The same Bruce Ohr who was demoted for meeting with Glenn Simpson and Christopher Steele, along with FBI agent Peter Strzok, w/out telling DOJ leadership.
14. @maggieNYT Again, you know this stuff. Nellie Ohr, Bruce Ohr and Glenn Simpson have known each other for years; and have worked on CIA *open source* projects together for a long time.
15 @maggieNYT As you know all of these people are SME’s on everything Russia and everything Russia intelligence. It is all of this activity in April and May, not innocuous George Papadopolous reading newspapers, that assembled data and eventually led to the “Russia Probe”.
17. @maggieNYT After the initial July 2016 FISA Court denial, the FBI and DOJ team leaned heavily on the external team of Jacoby, Simpson, Ohr, Steele etc. who created the “dossier” that enhanced the application that gained the FISA warrant in Oct.
18. @maggieNYT as you know, because of the legal framework around them, FISA warrants can be applied retroactively. Wiretaping and monitoring can technically begin while evidence is gathered to justify a DOJ-NSD warrant application later.
20. So @maggieNYT the question I have for you is: Did you write that nonsense about George Papadopolous because the IC (FBI/DOJ) tricked you into it?….. OR were you a willing participant in helping transmit political disinformation in an effort to help them cover their tracks?
21. Happy New Year @maggieNYT !!



Meanwhile, as pointed out by The Gateway Pundit‘s Cristina Laila, the Washington Examiner’s Byron York further tore into the NYT report:

Perhaps the most embarassing part for the New York Times isn’t that they appear to have published yet another massive case of Fake News – but that it took six of their ‘best and brightest’ to cobble it together.

    As if FBI/CIA/NSA, etc. couldnt write their own articles and let those hacks at NYT/CNN etc. just put their names to it. These joornalists are just too dumb to keep all these spinning plates suspended in mid-air w/o dropping a few here and there.

    Happy New Years.

    I’m just a loser staying warm in front of a fire, at home, with wine and waiting for the ball to drop so I can go to bed and “hope” 2018 doesn’t involve nuclear weapons.

    Cheers all!

    Thank you for this dissemination of the facts and thank you for repeating the excellent investigative journalism of Sundance at The Last Refuge. He aced it!

    And thank you from a Vietnam veteran for your part in defending our Republic from its domestic enemies. I pray for the Lord to help us put them in prison where they belong.

  5. cluso to you

    You have to be so ASS DEEP FOR TRUMP you’ll believe anything if you believe and make comments as those above about this article.

    David Camp – ASS DEEP for Trump, and take your phony prayers back to your fake Evang. Church
    Chuck Bennet – An ASS DEEP cheerleader if there ever was one
    Mad Marsupial – ASS DEEP and self-admitted “loser”. Case made.
    Sarcrilege – you seem to have a brain but in the end ASS DEEP. Change the channel?

    Remember the Deep State? You morons haven’t figured out that DJT is now the deep state.

    This article is obfuscated and bullshitting and written to purposely confuse the story.

    Want proof Papadopa isn’t a coffee boy? Trick question. Trump would never hire someone to serve coffee unless they had Tits like Fairbanks! Anyway the list of meetings this Papa had would never be assigned to a low level staffer. And he doesn’t have tits.
