This is from the Weissmann book. The Papadopoulos information "essentially dropped into our laps."

How convenient.
"[Papadopoulos'] primary credentials appeared to be that he lived overseas."

Ouch.
Weissmann may be a first-class asshole but the prose is very good. So much better than Strzok's.
Weissmann taking some liberties here. The FBI didn't interview Papa after they got the tip. They sent in Halper. Also, Downer didn't "understand" because he waited for 12 weeks before he came forward.

Note the use of the word "bragged", same word some of us have been using.
Called it.
Absolutely astounding admission from Weissmann. They knew exactly that if Papa had found out about emails he'd have told the campaign (dog that didn't bark).

Yet these crooks sold everyone their fraudulent story that Papa found out about the emails from Mifsud and told Downer.
Wow. Talk about taking liberties. Check out how Weissmann describes @AlexanderDowner's tip.

Downer said nothing of the sort. Emails were never mentioned, Mifsud was never mentioned, nor was being approached by "a Russian".
Weissmann sleight of hand here. The DNC emails weren't released at around the same time as the Downer tip. They were released before the tip. In fact, they were what prompted Downer to come forward in the first place.

"SARS-CoV-2 was remarkably well adapted to humans from its first appearance, yet poorly adapted to bat infection, the natural reservoirs for SARS-r-CoVs, with little evidence for gaining its human adaptation through natural recombination."

Aka "evidence".
link.springer.com/article/10.100…
"SARS-CoV-2′s receptor binding domain (RBD) appears to be highly optimized for binding to human ACE2"

Aka "evidence".
"The combination of binding strength, human and mouse peptide mimicry, as well as high adaptation for human infection and transmission from the earliest strains might suggest the use of humanized mice for the development of SARS-CoV-2 in a laboratory environment."

1/ Some additional info related to my WIV piece in @EpochTimes.

On Feb 6, 2020, a Chinese scholar in Wuhan, Xiao Botao, published an article on the academic portal Researchgate that directly implicated the WIV in the outbreak...

theepochtimes.com/american-who-r…
2/ Xiao said that “somebody was entangled with the evolution of 2019-nCoV coronavirus.” The article was taken down quickly but not before it was archived:

(Xiao is the sort of guy that the U.S. gov should be protecting instead of people like Danchenko)
3/Strangely, on Dec 31, 2019, the day the Wuhan "pneumonia" was first announced, Daszak started a tweet thread pointing the finger at the human-wildlife-livestock interface while conspicuously omitting the “high risk” laboratory interface that he himself had warned about earlier. Image

My latest in @EpochTimes: Investigating the investigator

m.theepochtimes.com/american-who-r…
"The World Health Organization's (WHO) latest mission to Wuhan to trace the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic is back in the headlines. But not for the right reasons...It is no coincidence that Daszak was handpicked for this effort. "
"To understand why, we need to go back and look at Daszak’s close affiliation to the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), dating back to at least 2013, when he co-authored a bat coronavirus study with the director of the lab, Shi Zhengli."

Twitter just scored several own goals in their lawsuit against Ken Paxton.

Here's Twitter openly admitting that they make editorial decisions, that these decisions have to be made in secret and that Twitter is actually no different from a newspaper. Wow.
digitalcommons.law.scu.edu/cgi/viewconten…
And here's Twitter admitting that they are relying on First Amendment rights meant for the press.
Twitter says it can't share information on their moderation process because that would undermine the moderation process.

Here's the problem. Section 230 protection only applies to those acting in good faith. By hiding their process, we can't know if they're acting in good faith.

Patrick Byrne is suscpetible to extravagant conspiracy theories but just from an observational perspective, this rings true. Rudy is neither the organizer nor the strategist he was 30 years ago. Sounds so like there was constant chaos—opposite of Democrat/Elias legal machine. Image
Rudy was right about this though. Frustrating that he made the right call and then ended up discrediting all the good arguments with a bunch of conspiracy theories. Image
They treated Byrne like some wacky hanger-on. If you think the guy's a wacko, why deal with him at all? Image

According to Lisa Page's notes, Rosenstein thought Mueller couldn't lead the FBI because his firm represented Manafort.

But somehow that didn't stop him from becoming Special Counsel.

What a clown show.
Rosenstein also thought that a special agent couldn't possibly be FBI director (why? imo they're exactly the kinds of people who ought to lead the FBI instead of corrupt lawyers).

Funnily enough, Pence "got it", which I take to mean that Pence wasn't big on swamp draining.
Apparently Mueller lost his phone in the White House. Dementia seems to have already set in.
