On May 17, 2017, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Robert Mueller to serve as Special Counsel for the United States Department of Justice. In this capacity, Mueller oversaw the investigation into "any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump, and any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation".
ATTENTION : President Donald Trump responded to news of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's 2017 appointment by telling then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions that he was "f****d, " according to a redacted version of Mueller's report released on April 18, 2019. “Oh my God, ” the President told Sessions, according to the report. “This is terrible. This is the end of my Presidency. I’m f****d. ”
Do you know why Donald Trump was sure his Presidency was finished?

Putin ordered WikiLeaks to hack my computer and got my letter ( and got my “The Professional” system) to Stratford, American geopolitical intelligence platform. Here's the link :
https://wikileaks. org/gifiles/docs/51/5127100_-analytical-and-intelligence-comments-the-professional. html
On Monday February 27th, 2012, WikiLeaks began publishing The Global Intelligence Files, over five million e-mails from the Texas headquartered "global intelligence" company Stratfor. The e-mails date between July 2004 and late December 2011. They reveal the inner workings of a company that fronts as an intelligence publisher, but provides confidential intelligence services to large corporations, such as Bhopal's Dow Chemical Co., Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon and government agencies, including the US Department of Homeland Security, the US Marines and the US Defense Intelligence Agency. The emails show Stratfor's web of informers, pay-off structure, payment laundering techniques and psychological methods.

World War III : Russia is the prize or Why KGB recruited Bill, Hillary, Obama and Trump
The sources of energy (oil, gas, uranium, coal) are rapidly coming to an end. At the same time China, India, Brazil, Indonesia are rapidly growing. We have 9 billion people on Earth with energy, food and fresh water supplies coming to an end in the next 25-40 years. That means that 500 million Europeans and 300 million Americans have to lower their standards of living – and they will not accept this! On top of it we have the global financial and economic crisis which is actually killing America. The only way out – to capture resources that still remain to preserve our standards of living. Russia has the world's largest reserves of mineral and energy resources, the world's largest forest reserves and 25% of the world's fresh water. Russia is energy superpower : #1 in the world in natural gas reserves, #8 in oil reserves and #2 in coal reserves.
"THE BOOMERANG" Operation
Russian President Putin said once that collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 was the "tragedy of the century" and named the USA a killer. Now comes revenge – "the Boomerang" operation and the "New Russian World Order" or a "controlled chaos” strategy – Putin's “new world order” to be established through the international chaos, permanent wars, civil wars and revolutions.
My definition :
"Controlled chaos” strategy – geopolitical re-division of the world by provoking riots, revolutions, civil wars and overthrowing regimes in independent from Russia sovereign states to establish the Russia's world hegemony. Political, national, religious and social conflicts in target countries have to be permanent. The strategy is being covered by a "struggle against international terrorism". The operation is preceded by information war against the target regime and backed by the Russia military forces if necessary.
Inside USA the strategy is used to provoke the U. S. government collapse
Putin and 9/11
1. Alexander Sakharovsky (1909-1983), Colonel General, Chief of KGB First Directorate (espionage) in 1956-1971.
"The father of international terrorism", he oversaw the KGB foreign intelligence division during some of the key events of the Cold War, including the the Cuban Missile Crisis and JFK assassination.
2. KGB Major General Viktor Vladimirov (1922-1995). My personal friend...
1966-1970 – Chief of the PGU KGB (Intelligence) "V" Department (sabotage and terror abroad by KGB special forces). 1984-1987 – Chief of the "RT" PGU KGB Department (recruitment of foreigners in USSR). Ordered Trump's recruitment (the asset was recruited by Putin).
3. A former KGB Lieutenant Colonel Vladimir Putin, President of Russia. In 1985-1990 KGB spy under cover in Dresden, East Germany, trained illegal KGB spies, who worked then in the West as KGB recruiters, terrorists and sabotage specialists (in case of war against Russia).
September 11, 2001, 11. 00 AM, Moscow
Strategic Surveillance Center, underground secret facility, Military Intelligence Dept of the General Staff, Moscow
Putin, General Shlyakhturov, Chief, Military intelligence Dept, Lebedev, Director, Russian Intelligence (SVR)
PUTIN. – Good morning, comrades. For some people it's a good morning, but for many people it's the last one. What's the estimate?
SHLYAKHTUROV. – Good morning, comrade President. We think, it's between two and four thousands Americans.
PUTIN. So, what's the story?
LEBEDEV. – As you know, airplane hijacking was KGB Intelligence Chief Alexander Sakharovsky's invention.
PUTIN. – I knew him, he died in 1983. He said once, nuclear arms have made military force obsolete, terrorism should become KGB main weapon. CIA called him "the father of international terrorism". The airplane hijacking was his invention, in 1969 alone, 82 planes were hijacked worldwide by the KGB-financed Palestine Liberation Organization, right?
LEBEDEV. – Right.
PUTIN. – And Major General Vladimirov...
LEBEDEV. – Yes, we still use his instructions on terror.
PUTIN. – He was my teacher.
LEBEDEV. – But mass terror isn't something we ever tried on the USA, but "The Boomerang" operation strategy gives us the opportunity to try it. Besides, we set up al Qaeda and bin Laden, whose guys killed thirteen thousands Soviet soldiers and officers in Afghanistan in 1979-1989.
PUTIN. – OK, what we get out of it? I mean, strategic objective.
LEBEDEV. – We get America into very expensive and useless wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, up to 10, 000 soldiers and up to $500 billion worrth.
PUTIN. – Not bad. How you've set up bin Laden?
SHLYAKHTUROV. – Our undercover, a ”terrorist”, explained to him an unusual plan to attack America. The plan approved, the first team of terrorists sent to USA. They took the courses on how to operate the "Boeing", take off only.
LEBEDEV. – CIA got the information on the "strange" students, but our agent blocked it.
PUTIN. – "Passive sabotage" again?
LEBEDEV. – Why not? It worked good with JFK.
PUTIN. – It did. Next?
SHLYAKHTUROV. – Another group of terrorists, no links to al-Qaeda, packed Twin Towers with explosives. Right after that, we eliminated the second team, their bodies burnt.
PUTIN. – And today is the day.
SHLYAKHTUROV. – Yes, Vladimir Vladimirovich. We've recorded the operation on tape, ready to show you.
PUTIN. – Eliminate the tape and the team, no evidence.
SHLYAKHTUROV. – Yes, comrade President. We'll see everything on the main screen, I mean, the final phase of the operation, New York, Twin Towers, on the main screen and then Pentagon and Pennsylvania. We start. Pay attention to four monitors to your left.
PUTIN. – People boarding jets.
LEBEDEV. – You see nineteen al-Qaeda terrorists boarding for Boeing jets in Boston, Washington and Newark, first three go to Los Angeles, the last one – to San Francisco.
PUTIN. No more passengers.
LEBEDEV. Right now our people arrest terrorists, kill them with the knives, pack in plastic bags, throw through the back airplane hatches and take away. Five minutes. Wait...
PUTIN. Wow! Good job. Who secured the airport?
LEBEDEV. CIA. Now other passengers board the airplanes. Nobody could see anything, including the terrorists' associates who might watch from the airport building.
SHLYAKHTUROV. Now jets take off one by one, 165 passengers altogether plus crew members.
8 a. m. EDT. American Airlines Flight 11, a Boeing 767 with 92 people on board, took off from Boston’s Logan international Airport to Los Angeles.
8:14 a. m. United Airlines Flight 175, a Boeing 767 with 65 people on board, took off from Logan to Los Angeles.
8:21 a. m. American Airlines flight 77, a Boeing 757 with 64 people on board, took off from Washington Dulles International Airport for Los Angeles.
8:41 a. m. United Airlines Flight 93, a Boeing 757 with 44 people on board, took off from Newark International Airport for San Francisco
LEBEDEV. – After 4 jets took off, their pilots were ordered emergency landing on one of the military bases where crews and passengers boarded a special military jet packed with explosives. It exploded in the air and crashed into a field in Pennsylvania. Two other empty jets, guided by autopilots, with explosives crashed into Twin Towers.
SHLYAKHTUROV. Look. 8:46:40: Flight 11 crashes into the north face of the North Tower (1 WTC) of the World Trade Center, between floors 93 and 99. The aircraft enters the tower intact. 9:03:00: Flight 175 crashes into the south face of the South Tower (2 WTC) of the World Trade Center, between floors 77 and 85. Parts of the plane, including the starboard engine, leave the building from its east and north sides, falling to the ground six blocks away. 9:37:46: Flight 77 crashes into the western side of The Pentagon and starts a violent fire. 10:03:11: Flight 93 crashes southeast of Pittsburgh in Somerset County, Pennsylvania.
PUTIN. Good. Eliminate the tape and kill the team involved. Now.
LEBEDEV. – Yes, Vladimir Vladimir Vladimirovich.
PUTIN. – Thank you comrades, it was very impressive. I want to tell you why are we killing America and I want you deliver my message to every officer at your departments.
We have to protect our country, because Russia is the economic target of the World War III. We have the world's largest reserves of mineral and energy resources, the world's largest forest reserves and its lakes contain 25% of the world's fresh water. Russia is energy superpower : #1 in the world in natural gas reserves, #8 in oil reserves and #2 in coal reserves. The world sources of energy (oil, gas, uranium, coal) are rapidly coming to an end. At the same time China, India, Brazil, Indonesia are rapidly growing. China is increasing its economy (GDP, gross domestic product) by 10% a year – in 5 years there will be 1, 5 China, 1, 15 India, 1, 5 Brazil, 1, 15 Indonesia. 9 billion people on Earth with energy, food and fresh water supplies coming to an end in the next 25-40 years. That means that 500 million Europeans and 300 million Americans have to lower their standards of living – and they will not accept this. The only way out – to get Russian resources to preserve the Western standards of living. Clear?
PUTIN. Talking about today’s successful operation. It's extremely important for Russia to re-direct radical Islam vector. It goes through Afghanistan and then through Muslim Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Kazakhstan (former Soviet republics) to Muslim Tatarstan and Muslim Chechnya, constituent republics of Russian federation. We’ll re-direct it to Europe and the USA. I'll stay here for the rest of the day and watch America suffer. Alone...
“Passive Sabotage” or how KGB killed JFK
It was KGB revenge for the Caribbean crisis, "the Boomerang" strategy operation, and a very simple one.
The Cuban (Caribbean) Missile Crisis, was a 13-day (October 16–28, 1962) confrontation between the United States and the Soviet Union concerning American ballistic missile deployment in Italy and Turkey with consequent Soviet ballistic missile deployment in Cuba. The confrontation is often considered the closest the Cold War came to escalating into a full-scale nuclear war. President Kennedy ordered to blockade Cuba and forced Soviet leader Khrushchev to withdraw the missiles from Cuba.
Now, let me show you the technology.
August 5, 1962, Los Angeles, California
KGB agents killed Marilyn Monroe (staged suicide – "acute barbiturate poisoning") who somehow got information on planned JFK assassination and desperately tried to contact him or his brother, Robert Kennedy. It’s simple to kill without any traces or in the body if you use a suppository.
November 22, 1963, Dallas, Texas
President John Kennedy was assassinated at 12:30 p. m. in Dallas, Texas by Lee Harvey Oswald -?
Do you know what's conspiracy?
It’s when you ask a simple question and nobody wants to answer it. And if you ask the wrong questions you get the wrong answers, as with the Warren Commission. Let’s ask some good questions.
Question 1. What would have happened if the snipers missed the target or Kennedy survived, being merely wounded – sniper is a human being – he makes mistakes?
Answer. Kennedy would have won the 1964 Presidential election and then conceivably his brothers, Robert and Edward, would keep the Oval Office until 1984. No war in Vietnam.
Question 2. Why would KGB take such a huge risk?
Answer. There was no risk at all and there was no "huge conspiracy – there was a "passive sabotage" operation. KGB recruited:
CIA Director John McCone,
FBI Director Edgar Hoover
Secret Service Director James Rowley
Those three KGB agents ordered their field offices to ignore Oswald until operation is over.
Question 3. Why was Kennedy murdered in public? President Kennedy was a sick man, taking a lot of pills daily. He had Addison’s disease which, in addition to susceptibility to infection can cause weakness, weight loss and low blood pressure; so he was taking cortisone. For his back pain Dr. Max Jacobson injected him (and Jackie) with a mixture of unspecified (! ) multivitamins, hormones, steroids, enzymes, and animal organ cells. Kennedy also used cocaine, marijuana, hashish and even LSD, especially during dates with women, including prostitutes —- for many people this was not a secret. There were enough opportunities to stage a death in private.
Answer. This had to be a public execution with a very clear message for the next Presidents – "Don’t touch Soviet Union! " and it worked. No World War III…
June 5, 1968, Los Angeles, California
After winning the California primary election for the Democratic nomination for the US President, Senator Robert Kennedy was shot as he walked through the kitchen of the Ambassador Hotel. Sirhan Sirhan, a 24-year-old Palestinian immigrant, was convicted of Kennedy's murder and is serving a life sentence for the crime.
ATTENTION. Robert Kennedy promised a full investigation of his brother's assassination in case he was elected.
1995, New York City, Carlyle Hotel, New York City
ATTENTION. John Kennedy Jr. announced that his father's death investigation was the most important thing of his life. He'll use his "George" magazine resources to get to the truth.
In New York he approached Princess Diana Spencer for an interview for his magazine. They met at New York Carlyle Hotel where JFK dated Marilyn Monroe – a holy place for John Kennedy Jr. It was a business meeting, an "investigation" meeting.
August 31, 1997, Paris, France
KGB used my instructions on staged car accidents to kill Princess Diana. Diana was fatally injured in a car crash in the Pont de l'Alma road tunnel in Paris, which also caused the death of her boyfriend, Dodi Fayed.
If I have to investigate Diana's death, I would start with a very simple question :what happened to the driver, the Ritz security chief Henri Paul? He tried to out-run paparazzi by speeding down a Riverfront Expressway, but lost somehow control of the Mercedes S280 near the entrance to the Alma Tunnel and crashed into a concrete pillar at an estimated speed of 65 to 70 miles per hour. He died on impact of a severed spine and a ruptured aorta.
Attention. The tests showed an extraordinary high (not explained until now) level of carbon monoxide in his blood (20. 7 %), which should have caused a severe headache, dizziness, confusion and absolute aversion to alcohol. Very heavy smokers can have a level of up to 9%, and Henri Paul was not a heavy smoker. There were no ventilation problems in his apartment, office or car. The gas didn’t appear from inside Mercedes because no other passenger was affected. So, what happened to Henri Paul?
July 16, 1999, Atlantic Ocean off Martha's Vineyard
KGB killed John Kennedy Jr. in a staged plane crash. Kennedy along with his wife Carolyn and sister-in-law Lauren were reported missing when the Piper Saratoga II HP he was piloting failed to arrive at its planned destination, the Martha's Vineyard Airport in Vineyard Haven, Massachusetts.
Anybody else wants to mess with KGB, I mean, Putin?
Why KGB Trump wanted Bill, Hillary and Obama dead?
He tried to kill Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama to remove the competitors and speed up the process of his own full-scale presidential campaign.
PART 1. KILL BILL CLINTON
September 1, 1995
I was recruited by CIA and had to work as a killer and special operations expert for CIA and FBI. I had to spy on the White House and the U. S. Congress and kill American politicians.
Also, I, a KGB spy, had to teach American presidents how to rule America and created "The Professional" system – special instructions on successful election and re-election campaigns, strategic planning and top decisions making, national security, foreign policy and diplomacy, propaganda, economy, war and special operations. That’s why Bill Clinton won 1996 re-election campaign. In 2007 it was published as the White House Special Handbook. Obama was using it, and now – Trump.
I could never imagine that in America I could have a unique status, "carte blanche" which means a “license to kill” any politician who is the threat to CIA. CIA and FBI also asked for effective interrogation, tortures and murders methods and readily used them in Guantanamo, Iraq and Afghanistan. I, not Condi Rice or Hillary Clinton, designed the world domination, “controlled chaos” and “color” revolutions strategies successfully used to blow up Yugoslavia, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Iraq, Syria, Ukraine, Yemen, and unite USA and EU for the World War III for Russian resources. But CIA wanted more from me – they had "a hell of a job up to my high professional skills as a former KGB anti-terror “Nabat” (”The Bell”) group sniper. Working abroad – Europe, Asia, Middle East – was OK with me, but I had no intention to kill politicians in America and play Lee Oswald-2. They've pressed me hard in return.
Who was the first target? President Bill Clinton – CIA wanted me "to stay close to him".
CIA and FBI awarded me with immigration status for my consent.
CIA didn't guarantee my personal security, so, and I couldn't do “a big job” and Bill Clinton has to thank for saving his life.
Now I understand who was behind the operation – Donald Trump. Why? Because Bill Clinton was the target of Italian mafia and Trump was the New York mafia most powerful families associate. Look.
Bill Clinton, the target
About 700, 000 people are the victims of Latin American, Italian and other mafia organizations international trafficking each year. In order to combat the growing and widespread issue of trafficking, the UNO members concluded a new protocol to the Transnational Crime Commission that banned trafficking, resulting in the Palermo Protocol, which the U. S. President Bill Clinton helped develop and support. During this process and ultimately to provide for both implementation of the Protocol and to fill gaps in U. S. law, Congress passed the bipartisan Trafficking Victims Protection Act, and it was signed by President Clinton on October 28, 2000 (Public Law 106-386). The issue of trafficking in persons included those trafficked into the commercial sex industry, modern slavery, and forced labor.
ATTENTION : Italian mafia is involved in everything from the drug trade, sex trafficking, gambling to real estate and construction. In 2000, the BBC reported that Italian mafia groups had a combined capital of $800 billion. Italian gangs cooperate with Albanian gangs in the trafficking of women and girls to USA for prostitution.
Donald Trump, the mafia associate : the facts are:
1. Trump bought the property that his Atlantic City casino Trump Plaza would one day occupy -- for twice market price -- from Salvatore Testa, a Philly mobster and son of one-time Philly mob boss Philip "Chicken Man" Testa. Testa and a partner, who together headed a Philly mafia hit-squad called the Young Executioners, bought the property for "a scant $195, 000" in 1977. In 1982, Trump paid $1. 1 million for it. The casino was built with the help of two construction companies controlled by Philly mobsters Nicademo "Little Nicky" Scarfo and his nephew Phillip "Crazy Phil" Leonetti ( data оf a New Jersey state commission's 1986 report on organized crime).
2. In Manhattan, Trump used the mob-controlled concrete company S&A to build Trump Plaza condos. Anthony "Fat Tony" Salerno, head of the Genovese crime family, and Paul Castellano, the don of New York's Gambino family, controlled S&A ( according to federal court records).
He built the Trump Tower out of concrete, instead of steel, at a time when the mafia controlled much the concrete industry. Trump and Salerno were both represented by high-power attorney Roy Cohn. On at least one occasion Trump and Salerno had a sit-down in Cohn’s apartment. Trump has denied this claim in the past.
3. Trump was a target of a 1979 bribery investigation and was questioned in a 1981 racketeering probe, but neither federal investigation led to criminal charges.
4. Trump sent lawyer Harvey I. Freeman, to negotiate with Ken Shapiro, the “investment banker” for Nicky Scarfo, the especially vicious killer who was Atlantic City’s mob boss ( according to federal prosecutors and the New Jersey State Commission on Investigation).
5. Scarfo, whose reign as head of the Philly mob was one of the bloodiest in history, controlled the bartenders union, which represented Trump’s workers in Atlantic City.
6. Gambling addict and racehorse trader Robert LiButti would frequently refer to gangster John Gotti as “my boss. ” His gambling losses scored over $11 million to Trump’s casino between 1986 and 1989. Trump said that he knew that LiButti was a high roller in the town but never actually knew him and “had nothing to do with him. ” But that’s not what Trump Plaza head Jack O’Donnell, said, “It isn’t like [Trump] saw LiButti once or twice—he spent time with him, saw him multiple times. ” O’Donnell said that Trump also attended LiButti’s daughter’s birthday party. It’s illegal for casinos to give high rollers money to gamble with, but the above mentioned commission also found that Trump Plaza gave LiButti $1. 65 million in gifts and cars. Trump also bought a $90, 000 horse from LiButti for $250, 000.
They said that Libutti ‘was in Donald Trump’s pockets’ – meaning Libutti knew of serious rule violations at the Trump casino that would interest the regulators. Had these claims been investigated and proven, they would surely have cost Trump his casino licence, but Trump’s relationship with Libutti was just another part of his long history of flouting the supposedly strict regulations of New Jersey casinos.
7. One of Trump’s attorneys at the time was Roy Cohn who also had mob clients including Anthony “Fat Tony” Salerno, who owned a cement company. Former Trump Organization executive Barbara Res said that Trump would pull out a photo of Cohn and threaten to sue people and tell them who his lawyer was. Trump denies it, however. Cohn and Trump also had a tight relationship with Teamsters official John A. Cody, who had ties to mob bosses Carlo Gambino and Paul Castellano, a Justice Department memo from 1982 outlined.
8. Russian-born Felix Sater was once a stockbroker but lost his license. Still, he was involved in a Mafia-linked scheme to artificially jack up stock value of marginal stocks and then dump them on investors who don’t know any better and funnel the profit in offshore accounts. Sater worked with Trump on the Trump SoHo condo project as well as the Trump International Hotel & Tower in Fort Lauderdale, FL. General counsel to the Trump Organization, Alan Garten said that they vet companies but not individual employees of companies they do partnerships with. Because Sater’s racketeering case was sealed, he said that it was unfair to look back and say “you should have known. ” However, in 2010, after Trump and his lawyers knew about Sater’s conviction, they offered him free office space in Trump Tower and he served as “Senior Advisor to Donald Trump, ” according to his business card. Garten says that Sater was unpaid and Trump claims the “deals” Sater brought him weren’t any good.
9. Trump decided to lend his name to a line of luxury stretch limousines. The entrepreneur who came up with this Trumpian idea was a wealthy and successful auto dealer from Long Island John Staluppi. According to the FBI, Staluppi was also a made member of the Colombo crime family. Trump proudly unveiled the lavish autos—complete with Italian leather upholstery, liquor dispensers, TVs. Staluppi had been under steady investigation by federal and state law enforcement for more than a decade and detectives had followed him to meetings with Colombo family boss Carmine "The Snake" Persico.
