Comrade Stupid wants to kill Obama Administration’s nuclear deal with Iran, and he figgered out in his pea-sized brain that the thing to do would be to prove that the The Kenyans were all crooks and the media was compromised and no one should trust ther coverage… or sumpin’?
Anyway, Axios morning email thingie gives us a taste:
Ronan Farrow in The New Yorker … “Israeli Operatives Who Aided Weinstein Collected Dirt on Former Obama Officials”:
- “Using false identities, [an Israeli] private-intelligence firm tried to gather damaging information about the Obama Administration architects of the Iran nuclear deal.”
- “In the Iran operation, as in its operation for Weinstein, Black Cube focussed much of its work on reporters and other media figures, sometimes using agents who posed as journalists.”
- “The company compiled a list of more than thirty reporters who it believed were in touch with Obama Administration officials, annotated with instructions about how to seek negative information.”
from the article (emphasis mine):
The documents show that Black Cube compiled detailed background profiles of several individuals, including Rhodes and Kahl, that featured their addresses, information on their family members, and even the makes of their cars. Black Cube agents were instructed to try to find damaging information about them, including unsubstantiated claims that Rhodes and Kahl had worked closely with Iran lobbyists and were personally enriched through their policy work on Iran (they denied those claims); rumors that Rhodes was one of the Obama staffers responsible for “unmasking” Trump transition officials who were named in intelligence documents (Rhodes denied the claim); and an allegation that one of the individuals targeted by the campaign had an affair.
ahhh, there we have it. Stupid just cannot stop himself.
Anyway, I’m still reading the NYer story, but it looks ripe.
