1. I listened to the interview just now with my wife and captured what I could in real time. I find it to be fascinating as well as entirely credible. B is Bongino while P is Pdop (duh!):
B: Why did you meet with Mifsud (the start of the collusion narrative)?
B: You didn’t seek Mifsud out, right?
P: Correct. Legal counsel of the FBI was involved in setting put the meeting.
P: No idea where they picked this woman up. I met her only once in my life (24 Mar in London). [Her name was Olga Vinogradova.]
B: Conspiracists claim you were working with Western intel against Trump.
B: Statement of offense asked whether you met with anyone with a Russian accent. Strange!
P: I don’t know what that means exactly. She probably was the only one with a Russian accent that I met throughout this ordeal.
P: I definitely think he was. I don’t know if a transcript will ever be published about it.
B: Did you ever push back on anything regarding Russian connections?
B: You didn’t think he was some kind of serious Russian spy, right, but rather someone puffing himself up to look good.
B: If Mifsud was a high-level Russian operative recording you, how did the US gov’t get access to the recordings? Not possible!
B: Was there a FISA warrant on you?
B: Obama had multiple people associated with the Trump campaign under surveillance.
B: Charles Tawil gave you $10K. Let’s get into that.
B: All these people offering you money, you were suspicious of Mifsud, etc.
B: Stefan Halper contacted you on 2 Sep 2016.
P: What about Alexander Downer.
P: No, I had a single drink.
B: This explains why Halper was upset that you never mentioned emails to him.
B: Do you have an idea who the spy it the Trump campaign was? You are confident that there was a spy?
