Persecutor-in-chief Robert Mueller has found ZERO criminal conspiracy between the Trump Campaign of 2016 and Russians. Or as the Leftist MSM might or should say – NO COLLUSION!
Keeping this in mind, the Steele Dossier fake accusations against Donald Trump also accused Russian owned businesses of criminal hacking in election 2016. One of those accused Russians is tech mogul Aleksej Gubarev owner of Russian tech company XBT Holding which in turn owns Dallas based tech company Webzilla:
A report compiled by a former Western intelligence official as opposition research against Trump was made public Tuesday when BuzzFeed posted its 35 pages. The document included unsubstantiated claims of collusion between the Trump campaign team and the Kremlin.
It also alleged that global tech firm XBT Holding, with operations in Dallas, was instrumental in the hack of leaked Democratic Party emails that embarrassed Hillary Clinton and fellow Democrats.
XBT, owner of Dallas-based enterprise-hosting company Webzilla, is run by a successful Russian tech startup expert, Aleksej Gubarev. In a phone interview from Cyprus, where he said he’d lived since 2002, Gubarev said he was surprised to see his name in the report. (Tech firm named in Russian hacking report has operations in Dallas; By Wire Services; Dallas News; 1/11/17)
Aleksej Gubarev was not pleased to have his name associated with any kind of criminal election conspiracy. So, he is suing:
A Russian tech executive suing BuzzFeed News over the Steele dossier says he is vindicated by special counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment of 12 Russian nationals allegedly involved in cyber attacks against Democrats.
Aleksej Gubarev, the executive, says Mueller’s indictment shows he was not involved in hacks of Democratic National Committee emails, as the dossier alleges.
He has filed defamation lawsuits against BuzzFeed News, the website’s editor, Ben Smith and dossier author Christopher Steele. BuzzFeed published the dossier on Jan. 10, 2017. Steele, a former British spy, compiled the dossier as part of an anti-Trump research project funded by the DNC and Clinton campaign.
And Tyler Durden reports:
A Russian venture capitalist and tech executive accused in the Steele dossier of “using botnets and porn traffic” to conduct cyberattacks on Democrats says that Friday’s indictment of 12 Russian nationals for hacking the DNC is an “utter vindication,” reports the Daily Caller.
In order to help defend themselves against Gubarev, BuzzFeed filed a lawsuit against the DNC to force them to hand over information related to the “Steele Dossier” after the DNC ignored a subpoena for proof they were hacked – including “digital remnants left by the Russian state operatives,” as well as a full version of the hacking report prepared by cybersecurity firm CrowdStrike.
The DNC notably wouldn’t allow FBI investigators to look at the server, instead relying on the hacking report prepared by CrowdStrike (founded by Russian expat Dimitri Alperovitch – who sits on the very Anti-Russian Atlantic Council along with Evelyn “loose lips” Farkas).
“As part of the discovery process, BuzzFeed is attempting to verify claims in the dossier that relate to the hacking of the DNC,” said BuzzFeed spokesman Matt Mittenhal in a statement. “We’re asking a federal court to force the DNC to follow the law and allow BuzzFeed to fully defend its First Amendment rights.”
Aleksej Gubarev recently learned that “District Court Judge Ursula Ungaro ruled that the firm’s client relationships “are not protected from disclosure by the First Amendment even though the opposition research it conducts on behalf of clients may be political in nature.”
Although Gubarev may believe Mueller’s indictment of 12 Russian GRU spies exonerates him of any complicity, Mueller have opened himself to proof his persecution of Trump is indeed a needless politically motivated witch-hunt.
Federal Judge Orders Fusion GPS To Provide Essential Answers

The Federal judge’s ruling was ‘everything’ that the lawyer for a Russian dot-com executive slandered by Christopher Steele had ‘hoped for.’ After using every legal stalling trick they could think of, the executives of Fusion GPS, including Glenn Simpson, are now compelled to answer key and sensitive questions at the heart of the controversy.
Outraged citizens have long been demanding to know how Barack Obama’s Department of Justice was corrupted into a more “Nixonian” political weapon than what happened at the Watergate hotel and now we will get to find out.
Unswayed by weak arguments put forth by Fusion GPS and it’s founder Glenn Simpson, District Court Judge Ursula Ungaro ruled that the firm’s client relationships “are not protected from disclosure by the First Amendment even though the opposition research it conducts on behalf of clients may be political in nature.”
Ungaro issued a ruling on Tuesday that pleased the American public a lot more than the lawyer for Russian mogul Aleksej Gubarev, but he’s ecstatic. In fact, the ruling has implications for the DNC.
Attorney Evan Fray-Witzer happily declared. “This ruling gave us everything that we had hoped for.” It was a long battle. “After a year of trying everything they could think of to avoid being deposed, Fusion is finally going to have to sit down and answer our questions.”
Outraged citizens have long been demanding to know how Barack Obama’s Department of Justice was corrupted into a more “Nixonian” political weapon than what happened at the Watergate hotel, and now they will get to find out.
As stated in the final order, “Representatives of Fusion GPS must answer a broad array of questions about the opposition research firm’s role in creating, investigating and disseminating the infamous Steele dossier.”
For over a year, Gubarev has been trying to interrogate Glenn Simpson and other Fusion GPS management in depositions, which are sessions of sworn testimony that happen in the lawyer’s offices, “to determine the purported factual basis for the dossier’s allegedly defamatory statements.”
The underlying defamation suit was filed against left-leaning news outlet BuzzFeed News. It spans two continents with one part filed in London and another filed in Miami, Florida.
The trial in Miami is scheduled to get underway this November. In the European half of the case, a British court also recently ruled in Gubarev’s favor, ordering that Christopher Steele will have to take the stand for questioning.
Gubarev alleges that Steele “defamed him,” by reporting that two of his companies, XBT Holding S.A. and its subsidiary, Webzilla, hijacked Democratic Party computers “using botnets and porn traffic to transmit viruses, plant bugs, steal data and conduct ‘altering operations.’”
Steele’s dossier blamed Webzilla for the hack. Now the Democratic National Committee will be deposed and asked to prove it.
The DNC has been frantically fighting a subpoena demanding “technical information” that they really don’t want to release.
Gubarev told them to fork over anything they might have, backing up their story with “‘clues’ and ‘evidence’ left behind by the cyber-intruders who breached the DNC’s network in 2016.”
Ungaro is allowing Gubarev’s attorneys to grill Fusion GPS representatives “about the firm’s dossier clients, its efforts to verify the dossier, its decision to hire dossier author Christopher Steele and its interactions with government officials and media outlets, including BuzzFeed.”
It seemed intentional to Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and fellow lawmaker Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) that all of Steele’s inflammatory material was leaked to the press, so they are digging into whether “Steele coordinated in any way with employees of the FBI or DOJ,” to leak the dossier to the media.
Other big questions that conservative lawmakers are asking are, did “the FBI, DOJ, or Office of National Intelligence” have a copy of the dossier before January 10, 2017; did Senator John McCain get a copy of the dossier’s first 33 pages on or about December 9, 2016 and; “whether, prior to January 10, 2017, Mr. Clapper, Mr. Rogers, Mr. Brennan, and/or Mr. Comey briefed President Obama about the Dossier and provided a synopsis of it.”
According to a disillusioned investigator on the Crossfire Hurricane investigation that turned whistleblower, Hillary Clinton was right in the middle of everything.
“The dossier and its related dirt was on a circular flight path aboard a courier service called ‘Air Clinton,’ and the FBI kept signing for the packages.”
Multiple versions of the same bogus information were hand carried around the globe by known Clinton “operatives” as mutually corroborating “support.”
“The set is only identical to what McCain had. (it has differences from what was given to us by Corn and Simpson),” Strzok wrote in a recently surfaced email.
“Simpson all but acknowledged he and Steele provided the information to McCain ally David Kramer, who provided it to the Arizona senator to forward to the FBI.”
Christopher Steele alleged in previous testimony that he warned Kramer that the evidence in his file was “raw intelligence,” when he handed it over.
He only wanted McCain to have it for “analyzing, investigating and verifying” the contents and decide if action was “necessary for the purpose of protecting US national security.”
It also highlights just how extensively Clinton influenced and directed what would eventually become Robert Mueller’s Russia collusion special investigation.
Without checking any of the information, Obama administration officials presented it to the FISA court to get political wiretaps.
Strzok’s email also contradicts Glenn Simpson’s prior testimony to Congress under oath. He swore that the FBI didn’t get his copy, only Christopher Steele’s.
Former bureau investigators who reviewed Strzok’s text message note that “the FBI is supposed to be immune to manipulation by circular information flows, especially with sensitive investigations such as evaluating whether a foreign power tampered with an American election.”
In this case, they explain, “the generally same information kept walking through the FBI’s door for months, recycled each time by a new character with ties to Hillary Clinton or hatred for Trump.”
As American Thinker pointed out in anticipation of Inspector General Horowitz’ investigation report, the scheme engineered by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democrat National Committee “is going to make Watergate look like the petty burglary it was.”
