A Saul Alinsky Rule #5 Post:
(Breaking News, August 15, 2018)
Investigators for Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller, III recently questioned a Russian saucier, employed at Trump Tower, concerning the alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian foreign agents, according to sources close to the Mueller investigation.
Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov, nicknamed “Lenny,” living in New York City on a work visa that has allegedly expired, is a saucier who specializes in fish egg-based sauces. The most desirable roe for exotic sauces is one not readily available in the U.S., and comes from a rare Baltic Sea fish, the soft toy swordfish.
F.B.I. agents have reportedly obtained photographs of Lenny periodically dumping the contents of a copper sauce pan into a dumpster outside the rear door of the kitchen at Trump Tower. Investigators suspect Lenny’s behavior represents a “dead drop,” or “dead letter box” method, common in espionage tradecraft, used to secretly pass information between a case officer and one or more agents.
On more than one occasion, investigators followed the unidentified man to an alley near the Russian Consulate at 9 East 91st Street, NYC, before he disappeared.
California Congressman Adam Schiff (D.), leaking to reporters on background concerning the on-going work of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, told persons from the New York Times, MSNBC, and NPR that the Mueller Investigation was aggressively developing sources among Trump Tower employees who have possible knowledge of alleged Russian collusion between candidate Trump and Russian nationals working in the U.S. Schiff believes that an indictment of Trump is inevitable.
Additionally, several confidential sources inside the White House report that one staff member is hesitant to visit Trump Tower because, as the source said, “Something fishy went on there. You could smell it.”
Meanwhile, former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has, yet again, spoken out on the Russian Collusion investigation saying that he has known Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller III for 20-30 years and holds him in very high regard. Holder said he was particularly impressed with the F.B.I.’s role in the investigation of the ATF Mexican gun-running operation, “Fast & Furious.” The controversial operation began in September 2009 when Mueller was the Director of the F.B.I.
In September 2012, the New York Times reported, one year before Mueller ended his assignment at F.B.I. Director (Sept 2001-Sept 2013), that,
“The Justice Department’s inspector general on Wednesday issued a scathing critique of federal officials for their handling of the botched gun-trafficking case known as Operation Fast and Furious, but essentially exonerated Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., whom many Republicans have blamed for the scandal.
In a long-awaited report, the inspector general, Michael E. Horowitz, laid primary blame on what he portrayed as a dysfunctional and poorly supervised group of Arizona-based federal prosecutors and agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, describing them as “permeated” by “a series of misguided strategies, tactics, errors in judgment and management failures” that allowed a risky strategy to continue despite the danger to public safety.”
In May 2018, Michael E. Horowitz, who is still the Inspector General of the Department of Justice, released the long-awaited results of his investigation into the F.B.I’s handing of the Hillary Clinton’s private server “matter”.
In his executive summary, Horowitz concluded by stating that the F.B.I.s handling of the private server matter was “permeated” by “a series of misguided strategies, tactics, errors in judgment and management failures.”
And that was that.
