@S_a_nk_s @_ImperatorRex_ Wait -- didn't that "tip" about where the locker was located come FROM a reporter to Mueller's team? Do we know who the 4 reporters were?
@S_a_nk_s @_ImperatorRex_ YES! Easy to find: bizpacreview.com/2018/07/09/fbi… That meeting, arranged by Andrew Weissmann – the DOJ attorney known as Robert Mueller’s “pit bull” – included three FBI agents...
@S_a_nk_s @_ImperatorRex_ (cont)... a Justice Department trial attorney; an assistant U.S. attorney and Andrew Weissmann, who later moved on to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe. The AP reporters were Chad Day, Jack Gillum, Ted Bridis and Eric Tucker, according to Fox News.
@S_a_nk_s @_ImperatorRex_ (cont) ... The memos also revealed that ONE of the AP reporters gave the FBI information about Manafort’s storage unit in Alexandria, Virginia with agent Jeffery Pfeiffer stating that reporters even offered the “gate code” to access unit.

DODGY AS HELL in light of yesterday!
@S_a_nk_s @_ImperatorRex_ From the Daily Caller - this meeting happened ONE MONTH BEFORE Mueller was appointed SC. Mueller might not have known. "... Weissmann arranged a meeting with DOJ and FBI officials and 4 AP reporters April 11, 2017, just over a month before Mueller was appointed special counsel.
@S_a_nk_s @_ImperatorRex_ And GUESS WHERE Weissman was posted when this happened? DOJ Criminal Fraud dept!

"Manafort’s attorneys have for months questioned whether Weissmann... leaked info about Manafort to The AP. At the time of mtg Weissmann was chief of the Justice Dept criminal fraud section."
@S_a_nk_s @_ImperatorRex_ "“The meeting was arranged by Andrew Weissmann,” Greenaway wrote in her report, for the first time establishing that Weissmann took part in the meeting.

Greenaway also said that Weissmann provided guidance to the reporters for their investigation."
@S_a_nk_s @_ImperatorRex_ In addition to Weissmann, Pfeiffer and Greenaway, Justice Department officials George Mceachern, Ann Brickley and Ariel Shreve attended the meeting.
@S_a_nk_s @_ImperatorRex_ Now from the WATimes -- Manafort's lawyer DID try VERY HARD to get them to disclose origins of where they got the info. washingtontimes.com/news/2018/jul/…
@S_a_nk_s @_ImperatorRex_ "The indictments are nearly a CARBON COPY of what AP reporters told Mr. Weissmann and the FBI they found on Mr. Manafort: Money laundering payments made by Ukrainian politicians; tax evasion on those funds and failure to register under the Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA)...
@S_a_nk_s @_ImperatorRex_ (cont)... "The public now knows about the AP-FBI alliance because Kevin Downing, Mr. Manafort’s attorney, has waged an AGGRESSIVE CAMPAIGN to force Mr. Mueller to disclose evidence."
@S_a_nk_s @_ImperatorRex_ CLEARLY looks like Weissman may have LAUNDERED SARS through these reporters. It happened a month before Mueller was appointed -- Mueller may or may not be aware but DAMN does Weissman ever look dirty.
@S_a_nk_s @_ImperatorRex_ WA Times: "Mueller began turning over docs, two of which are FBI memos from agents recounting their AP pow-wow. Downing then filed memos to bolster request to U.S. District Court Judge T.S. Ellis to hold a hearing on whether Mueller team/FBI violated grand jury secrecy rules.
@S_a_nk_s @_ImperatorRex_ "At conclusion of the meeting, AP reporters asked if we would be willing to tell them if they were off base or on the wrong track and they were advised that they appeared to have a good understanding of Manafort’s business dealings.”
@S_a_nk_s @_ImperatorRex_ "Mr. Weissmann gave the reporters advice on how to obtain information on Mr. Manafort from Cyprus’ anti-money laundering authority.

During the meeting the AP reporters served as informants, filling in the FBI and Mr. Weissmann on their investigation.
@S_a_nk_s @_ImperatorRex_ "One nugget was the existence of a storage locker––and its secret gate code–– in VA where (manafort) kept large amounts of financial docs. ...

Based on AP’s tip, the FBI executed a search warrant on the locker."
@S_a_nk_s @_ImperatorRex_ I would put money on ERIC TUCKER being the launderer - he's been caught faking/lying in stories for the Clintons previously: naturalnews.com/055879_Associa…
@S_a_nk_s @_ImperatorRex_ Tucker is also STILL writing stories with Chad Day (also one of the 4 AP reporters at the meeting)
@S_a_nk_s @_ImperatorRex_ Ted Bridis hasn't tweeted since Oct. 2017, now teaching investigative journalism at Univ of Florida
@S_a_nk_s @_ImperatorRex_ Jack Gillum is still tweeting and is overtly hostile to trump and "us bots" - I actually had blocked him at some point in the past...
@S_a_nk_s @_ImperatorRex_ Chad Day is also still tweeting and his timeline is typical liberal bias but not obsessively so
