Trump’s legitimacy as President thrown into doubt

Mueller Indicts 12 Russian Military Officers in the attack on our election, and he’s just skimming the surface of the cesspool

About the time Trump arrived to have tea with the Queen of England, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced the indictment of 12 Russian military officers for crimes related to the Russian attack on the 2016 presidential election.

According to an article in Politicus USA (7/13/218), the indictment charges 12 Russian military officers by name for conspiring to interfere with the 2016 presidential election. 11 of the defendants are charged with conspiring to hack into computers, steal documents, and release those documents with the intent to interfere in the election.

One of those defendants, and a 12th Russian military officer, are charged with conspiring to infiltrate computers of organizations involved in administering the elections, including state boards of election, secretaries of state, and companies that supply software used to administer according to the allegations in the indictment, the defendants worked for two units of the main intelligence directorate of the Russian general staff known as the GRU. The units engaged in active cyber operations to interfere in the 2016 presidential election.

There was one unit that engaged in active cyber operations by stealing information, and a different unit that was responsible for disseminating the stolen information. The defendants used two techniques to steal information.

First, they used a scheme known as spearfishing which involves sending misleading e-mail messages and tricking the users into disclosing their passwords and security information.

Secondly, the defendants hacked into computer networks and installed malicious software that allowed them to spy on users and capture keystrokes, take screenshots, and exfiltrate or remove data from those computers.

They also hacked into the computer networks of a congressional campaign committee and a national political committee. The defendants covertly monitored the computers and planted hundreds of files containing malicious computer code and stole e-mails and other documents. The conspirators created fictitious online personas including dcleaks and guccifer 2.0 and used those personas to release information including thousands of stolen e-mails and other documents beginning in June of 2016.

The defendants falsely claimed that dcleaks was a group of American hackers and that guccifer 2.0 was a lone Romanian hacker. In fact, both were created and controlled by the Russian GRU.

In addition to releasing documents directly to the public, the defendants transferred stolen documents to another organization that is not identified by name in the indictment and they used that organization as a passthrough to release the documents. They discussed the timing of the release in an attempt to enhance the impact on the election. In an effort to conceal their connections to Russia, the defendants used a network of computers around the world and they paid for it using cryptocurrencies.

The conspirators corresponded with several Americans during the course of the conspiracy through the interpret. There is no allegation in this indictment that the Americans knew that they were corresponding with Russian intelligence officers.

In a second, related conspiracy, Russian GRU officers hacked the website of a state election board and stole information about 500,000 voters. They also hacked into computers of a company that supplied software used to verify voter registration information. They targeted state and local officials responsible for administering elections and they sent spearfishing e-mails to people involved in administering elections including attaching malicious software.

Counts 2 through 9 charge those 11 defendants with aggravated identity theft by employing usernames and passwords of victims in order to commit computer fraud.

Count 10 charges those 11 defendants with money laundering for transferring cryptocurrencies through a web of transactions in order to purchase computer servers, register domains, and make other payments in furtherance of their hacking activities while trying to conceal their connections to Russia.

Count 11 charges two defendants for separate conspiracy, to access computers without authorization and to damage those computers in connection with efforts to infiltrate computers used to administer elections.

The fact that Russia was working to get Trump elected is no longer in doubt.

The latest round of indictments shows that at some level it doesn’t matter what the Trump did or did not do. Putin was trying to get Trump elected. That is the takeaway from these developments. Donald Trump did not win the presidential election on his own. He was installed by Putin. Trump’s legitimacy has been in question since he took office, and now the American people are beginning to find out how far Putin went to get his man into the Oval Office.

There is no recall for presidents, or mechanism to nullify an election. If Donald Trump was illegitimately elected, and he participated in crimes to win the presidency, he will likely be impeached. If he was illegitimately elected and did not commit any crimes, voters will have to remove him from office via the ballot box in 2020.

Either way, Trump has zero legitimacy.

Trump Republicans in Congress are threatening to impeach Rod Rosenstein to end the Mueller investigation and bury the truth about what really happened to our election.

We must force Trump Republicans in control of Congress to impeach Trump… now! Trump has no right being in the White House.

Join the Phone Protest against Bank of America/Merrill Lynch to put public pressure Congress to impeach Trump. Get on social media and help empower ordinary people to use their smartphones to join in peacefully calling Bank of America to complain by the thousands, by the hundreds of thousands, by the millions.

Call in solidarity, disrupt their lines of communication and shut down Bank of America/Merrill Lynch to put pressure on Trump Republicans in Congress to impeach Mr. Trump… now!

Congress might choose to sacrifice Bank of America/ Merrill Lynch, but when faced with a meltdown on Wall Street Congress will, undoubtedly, impeach Trump.

The most powerful way to protest is by phone.

Thousands, hundreds of thousands, millions of peaceful protesters calling and jamming the lines not just in the U.S. and the UK but around the world… are a formidable force.

The more Trump threatens the Resistance, the more protesters will be drawn to the phones at home and abroad calling to protest and driving Bank of America/ Merrill Lynch into bankruptcy if need be.

All it takes are calling and networking.

Three hundred activists calling one bank branch of Bank of America in one city along with three hundred activists in the UK calling one office of Merrill Lynch is all it would take to go viral and ignite a conflagration of calls around the globe that would consume Bank of America if Congress chooses not to meet our demands.

What you can do?

Join in calling Bank of America, and social networking to get the word out. Help make the Phone Protest go viral on the Internet. Activate callers in the U.S., the UK and around the globe to join in calling.

Inundate their phones, disrupt their business, cost them money- a great deal of money- and shut them down until Congress impeaches Trump.

If Congress does not meet our demands, it’s merely a matter of time until investors panic and crash Bank of America’s stock, and depositors start a run on the bank.

Congress can’t afford to let Bank of America and Merrill Lynch go under… much less a meltdown on Wall Street.

Instead of camping out in the park, we need to camp out on the phones and call Bank of America and Merrill Lynch and occupy their phones.

Protest by phone where there are no riot police, no tear gas, no mass arrests, no property damage, and no one has to die. It black out their phones and kill business at Bank of America and Merrill Lynch.

Start by calling Bank of America and posting on Twitter and Facebook to help activate enough activists worldwide to shut down Bank of America/ Merrill Lynch and force Congress to impeach Trump.

Protest by phone and we don’t have to confront Trump’s Neo Nazi supporters, or be tear gassed by riot police, shot with rubber bullets, or arrested in the streets to force Congress to impeach this illegitimate president who stole the election. All we need to do is call Bank of America/ Merrill Lynch to disrupt the crime syndicate they’re operating in our public phone system.

CALL-IN: In the U.S. call Bank of America and occupy their phones. In the UK call Merrill Lynch. Be civil. Help brown out their communications and put their business on hold. Send a message to Congress. Congress will meet our demands… or Congress could lose Bank of America

SOCIAL NETWORK:  Get on your smartphone, go viral, and bring enough protesters to the phones to put Bank of America out of business.

OCCUPY THE PHONES IN SOLIDARITY: Call en mass in the U.S., the UK and around the globe. Put a chokehold on the bank’s communications and put their business on hold. Shut down Bank of America/Merrill Lynch and give Congress a meltdown on Wall Street. If it becomes necessary, which it should not.

Force Congress to impeach Trump… to save Bank of America.

Bury Bank of America alive in calls and impose economic sanctions on Congress. It’s only a matter of time until panic sets in and stockholders start dumping their stock and depositors start a run on the bank.

Congress can risk losing Bank of America/Merrill Lynch and face a melt-down on Wall Street… or Congress can impeach Trump and declare the election results null and void, which invalidates every executive action, every law passed, every appointment made by Trump… the illegitimate president of the United States of America.
