General Michael Hayden (USAF Ret.), who served as CIA director and NSA director, told CNN that allegations published by the “Washington Post” proclaiming that Jared Kushner considered establishing a back channel line of communication with Russian officials before President Trump assumed office were unprecedented.
“This is off the map…I know of no other experience like this in our history, certainly within my life experience,” Hayden said.
General Hayden is certainly well aware of Barack Obama’s secret, off-the-books, pre-election diplomatic mission to the Iranian mullahs during which Obama’s emissary promised that Iran would receive a better deal than it might receive from the sitting president — George W. Bush. The Obama campaign’s message: the Islamic Republic would be far happier with Obama’s policies if it would wait until the election was over.
“What manner of ignorance, chaos, hubris, suspicion, contempt, would you have to have to think that doing this with the Russian ambassador was a good or an appropriate idea?,” Hayden said.
Senator Obama’s team set up the Iranian back channel not only before Barack Obama was sworn in as president, but before the 2008 election was even held.
Senator Obama’s team sent former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine William Green Miller to meet with Islamic regime officials inside Iran, circumventing NSA surveillance. In other words, the Obama campaign had its own private emissary on the ground inside Iran, secretly negotiating with a sworn enemy of the United States that was involved in a dispute.
General Hayden pretends to be oblivious of this pre-election Obama-Tehran communication arrangement. Why is General Hayden misrepresenting these facts to the American people? Is this part of the ongoing “Deep State” seditious campaign to take down a duly elected president — Donald J. Trump?
President Obama would later repeat this scenario with another one of America’s major military adversaries when he was famously caught by a “hot mic” telling Russia’s President Dmitri Medvedev that he would have “more flexibility” on missile defense after the 2012 election.
The Obama team’s back channel to Tehran was William Green Miller, the U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine under President Bill Clinton, according to Michael Ladeen writing for PJ Media in 2014.
Ladeen, who claims to have spoken to Ambassador Miller for his article “Obama’s Latest Big Lie: ‘We Have No Strategy,“ Ambassador Miller confirmed to me his conversations with Iranian leaders during the 2008 campaign.”
Such conversations would have constituted a clear violation of the Logan Act. The “Washington Post” is now claiming Kushner could have been guilty of the same violation had he followed through with establishing a secret communication channel with Russia.
Ambassador Miller was appointed by President Clinton as ambassador to Ukraine after Miller’s decades-long absence from the State Department. Miller had years earlier left the State Department as a form of protest against the Vietnam War, according to an interview archived at the Library of Congress.
Miller, whose grandfather is from Ukraine, once expressed that he was so appalled by McCarthyism that he was fearful of a career in diplomacy. Miller initially took the foreign service exam in 1955, but chose not to pursue a career with the State Department during the height of communist investigations at the House and Senate. Miller instead embarked on a doctoral journey at Harvard University.
“I did not want to go into the Foreign Service because of the taint of McCarthy.” – Ambassador William Green Miller.
In 1959, as the McCarthy era investigations were winding down, someone inside the State Department signaled to Miller that the time to join the State Department was now or never.
Like President Obama himself, who was mentored in Hawaii by suspected KGB officer and known CPUSA member Frank Marshall Davis, Obama’s secret envoy to Iran, William Green Miller, was mentored by revolutionary marxist, communist labor organizer, and literary critic Frederick Wilcox Dupee. Dupee was an associate of Soviet spy Whittaker Chambers, who at one time worked for the GRU but eventually switched sides and became an anticommunist.
Like Frank Marshall Davis, Ambassador Miller’s mentor Dupee joined the CPUSA and handed out communist literature to the longshoremen’s union — Davis in Honolulu and Dupee in New York City, where Miller grew up. Davis and Dupee were fellow members of CPUSA’s League of American Writers.
Married Lincoln Project Co-Founder John Weaver Accused of Grooming Young Men, Offering Jobs for Sex
Well this isn’t a good look.
John Weaver, political consultant and co-founder of The Lincoln Project, has been accused of being a sexual predator who targeted young men.
Conservative author and political commentator Ryan Girdusky piqued curiosity and set off widespread speculation after tweeting late Saturday afternoon that “one of the founding members of the Lincoln Project [offered] jobs to young men in exchange for sex,” adding that “his wife is probably interested” to hear about the allegations.
Maybe I should start talking about one of the founding members of the Lincoln Project offering jobs to young men in exchange for sex… his wife is probably interested https://t.co/vAtUS9aPPl

Although Girdusky did not post screenshots of Weaver’s predatory actions himself, saying he “worked with journalists and reached out to victims asking for them to speak up because it was their story, not mine,” several others spoke up about what they experienced and heard.
Twitter user @JoshPri68522288 was one of the first to speak up, tweeting that “I know who did it, because they did it to me. It was John Weaver.”
@_liberalproject also said that “Weaver used to follow me when I used my real name on here. Out of the blue he DM’d being pushy with personal questions and trying to flirt with me. After I didn’t go along with it, he unfollowed me and never DM’d me since.”

News of the impending allegations was also retweeted by Donald Trump Jr.
The longest Twitter thread on the accusations came from journalist Scott Stedman, who started a Twitter thread that begins as follows: “I don’t want to feed into Don Jr’s nonsense but I do want to tell a story. I followed John Weaver when I started my Twitter account. We exchanged messages, I sent him my stories, chatted about Russia, etc. He wrote a blurb for my book. He offered me some sort of “joint venture” which I wasn’t interested in, so I didn’t respond to his calls.”
Stedman continues: “One day, he DM’d me and said he had ‘advice’. He then proceeded to tell me how ‘hot’ I looked and commented on my profile picture and my hair. He started calling me ‘my boy’. I found it deeply uncomfortable.”
“What he said to me pales in comparison to others with whom Weaver communicated and countless others who have experienced much worse from people in power,” Stedman said.
And there could be much more where that came from…
For those asking why speaking up about this now: There are others, including some who reached out to me in recent days. Many many many many others, some afraid to say anything.

Neither The Lincoln Project nor it’s leadership have publicly commented on the accusations yet, including Weaver himself.
Stay tuned as this story develops.
