CNN interviews Georgian Parrot about Trump-Russia collusion

A Saul Alinsky Rule #5 Post:

According to a March 1, 2018 CNN article entitled “Russian model in Thai jail promises to spill Trump-Russia secrets,” a Belarus “model” named Anastasia Vashukevich (AKA: Nastya Rybka), who traveled to Thailand on a Russian passport, and who has ties to Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska and Deputy Prime Minister Sergey Prikhodko, is being detained in a Thai prison awaiting deportation.

A CNN “Trump-strike News Team” (TNT) traveled to Thailand to visit the self-described “seductress” after she claimed, in a video posted on her instagram account, that, “I’m ready to give you all the missing puzzle pieces, support them with videos and audios, regarding the connections of our respected lawmakers with Trump, Manafort and the rest. I know a lot. I’m waiting for your offers and I’m waiting for you in a Thai prison.”

The young woman’s story offered the possibility of becoming yet another CNN “bombshell.”

While no known “puzzle pieces” from Vashukevich surfaced concerning Trump-Russian connections, she did refer CNN to a wealthy Georgian oligarch named Ioseb Jughashvili from Gori, a city in eastern Georgia.

Based on her lead, CNN traveled to Gori – which in Georgian means “heap” – to visit Jughashvili.

When CNN personnel arrived at Jughashvili’s luxury apartment in Gori, they found it was guarded by Gori Police as a possible crime scene, due to the occupant’s sudden death from unknown causes. Foul play was suspected.

The only other occupant of the apartment was a talking parrot, named Nikita, who witnessed his owner’s demise.

With the permission of the Gori Police Department officials, CNN attempted to interview Nikita.

Unfortunately, the bird just kept repeating, “Hello Donald. Meet my friend Vladimir. Meet my friend Vladimir. Hello Donald. Meet my friend Vladimir…aaaah, aaaah…”

Georgian Parrot Questioned in Trump-Russian Collusion

CNN offered to transport Nikita to its headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia – the U.S. state – but USDA/APHIS restrictions on the importation of birds and bird products from Georgia – the country in the Caucasus region of Eurasia – is prohibited.

When last seen, Nikita was inside his cage being removed from the premises by the Gori Police, and loaded into the police car pictured above.

As the vehicle prepared to depart, CNN personnel could hear Nikita’s muffled mantra continuing from inside the trunk…“Hello Donald. Meet my friend Vladimir…aaah”

Trumped Up: How Criminalization of Political Differences Endangers Democracy (Kindle Edition)

“There are great legal minds; there are those who can also communicate well on television; then there is Dershowitz. The professor is uniquely capable of arguing a position, while putting a premium on legal and ethical legitimacy, not its popularity. Bravo, Dershowitz!” – Chris Cuomo, anchor and reporter, CNN

“This collection shows Alan Dershowitz at his best—passionate, fearless, and occasionally very wrong.” – Jeffrey Toobin, bestselling author of The Nine, Too Close to Call, A Vast Conspiracy, and The Run of His Life.

“Alan Dershowitz doesn’t twist the constitution to fit an agenda. He tells you what it REALLY means. That’s why he has always been my go-to guy on the law and the Constitution.” – Greta Van Susteren, former anchor at CNN, Fox News Channel, and MSNBC

“This book will reinforce Alan Dershowitz’s well-earned reputation as a brilliant legal analyst who, although often swimming against the established current, is usually right. Dershowitz substitutes his trenchant legal analysis for the wishful thinking and self-aggrandizing moral superiority that is presented by many in the academy and media, as well as Trump’s political opponents. Dershowitz’s arguments should cause all rational citizens to take a deep breath and recognize, as Dershowitz demonstrates, that Trump may be many things, but, under current law and the known evidence, the President is not a criminal. His analysis seems flawless to me.” – Harvey A. Silverglate, Criminal and civil liberties lawyer, author of Three Felonies a Day: How the Feds Target the Innocent

In our current age of hyper-partisan politics, nearly everyone takes sides. This is especially true with regard to the Trump presidency. It has become difficult to have a reasonable discussion about the most controversial president in our recent history. For Trump zealots, their president has not only committed no crimes, he has done nothing wrong. For anti-Trump zealots, nothing Trump has done—even in foreign policy—is good. Everything he has done is wrong, and since it is wrong, it must necessarily be criminal. This deeply undemocratic fallacy—that political sins must be investigated and prosecuted as criminal—is an exceedingly dangerous trend.

Hardening positions on both sides has been manifested by increasing demands to criminalize political differences. Both sides scream “lock ‘em up” instead of making substantive criticisms of opposing views.

The real fear, as Alan Dershowitz argues, in this compelling collection, is that we have weakened our national commitment to civil liberties as the Left becomes ever more intolerant and the Right slips into authoritarian rhetoric. The vibrant center is weakening, with traditional liberalism and conservatism becoming further apart, not just in approach, but in their respect for Constitutional norms that have served us well for more than two centuries.

While Donald Trump is not the only cause of this profound division, his election drew it to the surface and made it the dominant paradigm of political debate. Unless we as a nation begin to focus again on what unites us rather than on what divides us, America might not survive the next decade.
