10 Alarming Facts About Factory Farms That Will Break Your Heart

Published

on

After hearing these facts about the conditions that animals are forced to endure on factory farms you might be displeased to learn that 99% of all of the meat that is sold in the U.S. comes from factory farms (1), something to keep in mind.

*Warning: Some of the images used are graphic* 

I know that these can be very hard to look at, it was hard enough to do the research for the article. However, if this is what it takes for people to wake up and realize exactly what they are contributing to, then I am all for it, as it needs to be done. I know a number of people who have gone completely Vegan after watching the graphic film “Earthlings,” which exposes the inner workings of factory farms. People are simply unaware of what has been going on behind closed doors, the intent of this article is to open some eyes and open the doors to this tragedy that has been taking place for far too long.

1. The majority of chickens raised on factory farms have their beaks cut off.

debeak_lg

According to the United States Department of Agriculture 36.8 BILLION pounds of chicken were raised and slaughtered for consumption in 2013 alone (2.) That is a lot of chickens! Since these animals are kept to live in such close quarters a lot of farmers remove the beaks from the chickens by clipping, or burning them off to avoid the chickens from pecking each other to death. Many people claim that this practice causes no harm or pain to the animals, however a number of chickens die from this process.(2a)

2. Male chicks that are born serve virtually no purpose to the egg industry so they are sorted from the females and ground up on the same day they are born. (3)

Like me you may have wondered, why don’t they just raise these chickens for meat? Egg laying chickens are actually different from chickens that are used for meat. Chickens used for meat are known as broiler chickens and they are bred specifically to be a factory standard size and are usually slaughtered at around 2 months of age. This factory standard size makes it easier for the chickens to be put into the machine that is used to slaughter them, although this machine does miss a few from time to time, and these birds are sent to the next step of mechanical separation while still alive.(2b)

3. The term that comes across, as ethical “free range” isn’t at all, and in some cases is worse for the overall well being of the chickens than being kept in cages.

Free-range-hens

When you see the term “Free Range” you may get a picture in your head of happy chickens roaming free through green pastures –this is exactly what egg and chicken suppliers want you to think so that you can feel good about the purchase that you are making, however this is very far from the truth. There is no government certification required to boast the label as free range for egg laying hens or boiler chickens. (4) This means that when eggs or chicken meat is labeled as free range this only means that the chickens were not kept in cages. They were however, kept inside big warehouses cramped together so tightly that they can barely spread their wings. (5)

4. Newborn calves are taken away from their mothers almost immediately after birth.

Can you imagine carrying something inside of you for 9 months, going through painful labor, finally getting to meet your newborn and then have them taken away from you after as little as two hours? As you can imagine this can be quite traumatizing for a mother cow and her newborn calf. (6) Calves born of dairy cows are not even allowed to drink the milk that their mother produces, ironically, that milk is for humans consumption only. See something wrong with this picture? The babies are then fed a nutritional supplement. Mother cows will wail for days and days longing for the bond with their newborn. They often go into depression and lose weight from the ordeal. Studies have shown that this gets particularly harder each time the cow gives birth.

5. More than 80 percent of the antibiotics used in the United States were fed to livestock.

500px-Naturally-yours-antibiotics-animals

This statistic is almost sickening. Scrap that, it is sickening. The thought of this makes me sick to my stomach.  Because these factory farmed animals are forced to live in such inhumane and disgustingly dirty conditions, these antibiotics are needed -and in large quantities to try and keep the animals healthy. If that alone isn’t alarming enough, the majority of these antibiotics are specifically administered to artificially increase rapid growth.(7) It is important to note that everything these animals are eating, we are then eating… you are what you eat.

6. Calves that are bred for veal are kept in tiny very dark containers called veal crates for their entire short lives.

deadcows

Because newborn calves that are male are not useful to the dairy industry and are considered a by-product. The male calves are kept in crates that are no more that 30 inches wide and 72 inches long.(8) These crates are small so that the baby calf has no room to move around too much and often times they are held down with chains to ensure that they don’t build muscle and their flesh stays tender. The calves are fed a diet that consists of only a synthetic formula so that their flesh will be pale and anemic, as desired by the consumer.

7. 82% of cows used for dairy production have their tails cut off.

spanish_cows_painfully_taildocked

The tails are docked from one of a few different processes that include cauterizing docking irons, application of elastrator bands or surgical decision. The reason that this procedure is performed is to create an improved comfort level for milking personnel, a reduced incidence of mastitis and allegedly, improved milk quality and milk hygiene. (9)

8. Pregnant sows are kept in disgustingly small cages and are unable to even turn around.

120606092303-gestation-crates-story-top

Each year millions of pregnant sows are kept in cages that are referred to as “gestation crates.” These crates are a cost cutting measure that keeps the pregnant pigs immobilized. These crates have slatted concrete for the floors so that manure and waste from the pregnant pigs can easily slip through into huge pits beneath. Shortly after giving birth the new mothers are then moved to what is referred to as “farrowing crates,” which are very similar to the gestation crates except that there is a bit more room to fit the small piglets so that they can nurse. (10) The entire lifespan of a sow is in a tiny cage just big enough for it to fit. Think about that for a minute. This whole process is so inhumane that it is actually banned in the UK, Sweden and some states. (11)

9. 65% Of Hogs tested from factory farms had pneumonia.

app_fig_5_large

Researchers believe that this is due in part to the massive amount of manure that these pigs are excreting every single day while being confined to these small concrete cages that are indoors. (12)

10.  Almost all of the cattle raised on factory farms for the purpose of consumption are fed a diet that consists of GMO corn. Cows are naturally meant to eat grass.

Feedlot-Cattle

This is alarming for a few reasons: one being that this is entirely unnatural and cows have evolved over millions of years on a diet of grass. Two the process of digesting the corn is so unnatural to their digestive systems that if not done properly it can actually kill the animal, especially if the animal is not being fed a copious amount of antibiotics along with it. Why the switch? It’s faster and consequently more profitable. Seventy five years go a cow would live to be 4 or 5 at the time of slaughter, today they are less than two. (13)

After reading this a lot of people will think, yes this is terrible, but what can I actually do to stop this? This is just how the world is. I want you to understand that you can make a difference.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” -Margaret Mead

You always have a choice! It is up to you to decide what you are putting into your body and where you are buying it. I realize that there is no way to prove the next statement that I am about to make; however it is something that should be considered. You are what you eat… approximately 40 million Americans will experience an impairment because of an anxiety disorder this year.(14) When you realize the tremendous feeling of anxiety that billions of animals are feeling at all times it is not difficult to assume that there could be a direct relationship between these extremely distressed animals and what many of us are putting into our bodies every single day.

I do have a question for those who regularly consume meat, do you still think being Vegan is extreme? If switching to a Vegan or even Vegetarian diet at this time in your life seems too daunting to you there are some other alternatives. One option is to simply cut down the amount of factory farmed products that you are consuming. Consider participating in “Meatless Mondays.” Another option is to do some research and find out exactly where the products that you are consuming are coming from. There are ways of getting meat and animal products that come from sufficiently more humane farmers with better, safer farming practices. Share this information with people. The majority of people who consume animals and animal products are just completely unaware of what is going on, you might be amazed to know that just a little information can go a long way if given to an open-minded individual.

U.S. Soldier Claims To Have Shot & Killed A 12-Foot Giant In Afghanistan

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    There is corroborating testimony that a patrol of U. S. Soldiers shot and killed a giant 12-15 feet tall in Afghanistan, widely known a 'The Kandahar Giant.'

  • Reflect On:

    What would be the implications about human history if we came to know that there were one or several other humanoid species that once lived on the planet, or indeed still live here today?

In 2002 a U. S. patrol had gone missing in a very remote area of Afghanistan. Another patrol was dispatched on a search and rescue mission, and one soldier on that patrol described what he saw after coming around the side of a mountain:

As we bent around this corner you could see the opening of the cave. And then I see a lot of rocks which is another oddity. And then bone matter. I’m not close enough to identify what kind of bones but I did see what I knew to be a piece of our communications equipment. So instantly we’re thinking ‘ambush,’ maybe animal, you know, could be anything. There was enough room in front of the cave, but it had a sheer drop-off; but there was enough room that we got into a decent dispersal in case of ambush.

Not long after they had gotten into that dispersal formation, they saw something emerge from the cave that, despite their preparedness, caught them fully off guard.

It was a man at least 12 to 15 feet in height. This is a MONSTER. Red beard, with his hair–was longish, past his shoulders, a scarlet red. And Dan runs at him and starts shooting, which broke all of us into the reality–because it was surreal.

While Dan is moving at him, another bro of mine is laying down fire and I start firing. He skewers Dan–he’s now got him on this ‘pike.’ It went through him. He’s got him and he’s coming after more.

We all just clicked in. I don’t know what it was, but I remember we were all like, ‘Shoot him in the face, shoot him in the face!’ He’s taking multiple hits, and he’s still moving.

Eventually, the giant was killed. Dan had been killed as well. And the patrol unit was soon visited by a helicopter that dropped some cargo netting. They were told they had to bundle up the giant in the netting, and soon after they were done, a larger helicopter came by, dropped a hook, and the giant was carried off.

The soldier confirmed that the red-haired, fair-skinned giant had six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot. After they had submitted their after-action report, the soldier recounts that they were told by their top brass to re-write it in a particular fashion, presumably to remove any mention of a giant being.

Corroborating Testimony

Although not an eyewitness, another special ops soldier in Afghanistan provides the following corroborating testimony:

We would come back to the base and started hearing this rumor about a unit that killed this, what they started calling this really tall person. At first I didn’t think anything of it, then come to find out that the person they killed was actually three times the size of a man, had extra digits on their hands, and extra digits on their feet, and had red hair, and a special unit had come in and wanted this target.

Well we’d heard that they killed this thing inside a cave, or the mouth of a cave, and there was common knowledge among the military to hear this. When you first hear, you’re thinking like, this has got to be a joke. This has got to be a hoax. Then after things go down a certain way, and you keep hearing it, you start to realize it’s not a joke.

They kept telling us to keep our weapons high, which normally means it’s two to the chest, one to the head, but they kept telling us to put it towards a man’s head, and put it higher. So we would question, why would they want us to shoot higher than a man’s head?

Recorded Interviews

These testimonies are found in the compilation video below, from interviews conducted by L. A. Marzulli with the two soldiers who wanted to remain anonymous. In addition, there is some footage from Coast to Coast with host George Noory featuring a pilot who saw and actually transported the giant.

Pilot’s Testimony

This pilot had landed at a base in Afghanistan and was told that they had to pick up special cargo and that there were absolutely no cameras allowed. The pilot describes the ‘cargo’:

It was basically a dead ‘guy,’ and this guy was extremely large, and when I say large, our pallets are basically, if I remember correctly, about 9 by 12 feet, or so, and this guy was laying in a fetal position, on the pallet, and he filled the pallet. He was around an 1100 pound guy.

The pilot corroborated much more of the details given by the other two witnesses, including the fact that this giant was fair-skinned, red-haired, and had extra digits on his hands and feet.

Widespread Corroboration

As impressive as the consistency of these three separate testimonies is, there is actually much more widespread corroboration about the existence of fair-skinned, red-haired giants with six fingers and toes, and double rows of teeth. Certainly, in Afghanistan, the stories among the natives were rampant about the existence of cannibalistic giants living in caves. The soldiers who could understand the natives’ language tended to refer to these stories as ‘legends’, although a few noted that the presence of bones near cave entrances suggested that humans were killed and eaten by something living in the cave, either by ambush or, according to the natives, by sacrifices they offered the giant.

There is plenty of evidence that a cannibalistic, red-haired race of giants once inhabited North America, and menaced several native tribes whose folklore and legends (or for the tribes, history) tell stories similar to the one recounted in this article:

After years of strife and numerous casualties on both sides of the fence, the natives decided to end this giant threat for good-by uniting under a single flag. It wasn’t long until the red-haired giants were crippled and forced out of their homes.

The giants retreated inside a cave, but were tracked down by the natives, and with a will to avenge their fallen brethren, they set up a considerable fire that had them all burnt or intoxicated. Those who ventured outside to try to escape the putsch were met with retribution to the last one.

In reference to red-haired giants, there is a discussion between David Wilcock and Corey Goode where it is said that these giants have been found in stasis, which means in suspended animation, until such a time that they are supposed to return. More than one person within the UFO community has borne witness to these red-haired giants being found in stasis chambers, in full battle regalia and other adornments, seemingly in preparation to resume their role on Earth at the appointed time.

Reasons For Non-Disclosure

In asking one of the U. S. army witnesses why this information was being kept secret from the world, he said,

My personal opinion is, if it points to the Bible’s accurate, they don’t want it. If it goes against Darwinian Evolution, it’s not to be spoken of.

This is very much in keeping with my previous article on Giants in North America, where it seems that those in power are trying their best to keep everybody from finding out that human history is very different from the neo-Darwinian model in which human evolution has been a slow, unbroken, random pattern without intervention from any other sentient species. It’s likely that just learning of the existence of one different species here on Earth would completely break the spell and have a majority of us ready to demand the truth about our history and our place in this universe alongside other intelligent species.

Snopes Weighs In

Of course mainstream attempts to dampen the credibility of this type of story starts at the top–the top of a Google search, I mean. A search on ‘Kandahar Giant,’ predictably, has this Snopes article first on the list, to tell us of course that the whole story is false. The proof?

A Department of Defense spokesman told us they have no record of such an incident: “We do not have any record or information about a special forces member killed by a giant in Kandahar.”

If you’ve made it this far in the article, I rather doubt that this ‘proof’ is very compelling to you.

Our Role

Our role as awakened and awakening citizens in the truth-seeking community is to continue to do our best to bring to light all the evidence of information that has been suppressed, hidden and denied. As more and more eyewitnesses and other whistleblowers gain the courage to come out and talk about what they have experienced, it is becoming easier to start building a bigger picture about our true history and what’s really going on in our world.

Round UFO Seen Hovering Over Indian Prime Minister’s Residence – “Details Cannot Be Revealed”

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A round UFO appeared over India Prime Minister Modi's residence. Delhi police chief spokesperson Deepak Pathak confirmed the sighting but did not disclose any details.

  • Reflect On:

    What are your thoughts on UFO sightings? Are they manned by humans or ET's? Have you looked into the subject of ET's and UFO's? If not, Search our website as we have covered it in great detail and the subject relates to our evolving consciousness.

“Multiple government agencies were pressed into action,” a statement made by an Indian correspondent to CNN a few days ago  According to the Hindustan Times, “special commissioner of police and Delhi police chief spokesperson Deepak Pathak confirmed the sighting but said details of the incident cannot be revealed.

“The sighting was reported but nothing threatening was found. More details cannot be shared keeping security reasons in mind,” Pathak added. This was also reported across multiple mainstream outlets.

This follows the release of footage from the Pentagon, and a massive wake up call article written in the New York Times,  as well as a big article on the topic by Christopher Mellon in the Washington Post, he served as deputy assistant secretary of defense for intelligence in the Clinton and George W. Bush administrations. He is a private equity investor and an adviser to the To the Stars Academy for Arts and Science.

To the Stars Academy are the ones who released the Pentagon UFO videos a couple of months ago.

It’s important to remember that these are establishment mouthpieces, and they have all but lost the people’s trust in covering events in an accurate and unbias manner. Documents, along with award-winning mainstream media journalists have made this quite obvious, and there are multiple examples that seem to be happening all the time, like the recent coverage in Syria, for example. The real portrayers of fake news seem to be the ones who created that title in the first place…

Why has the establishment, or a fraction of it, chosen to release this information? All they’ve done with information is use it to deceive the masses for ulterior motives, those motives include, for example, the ‘war on terror’ as well as the ‘war on drugs.’ Now the UFO/ET topic is too big to hide, so they are choosing to control the disclosure narrative to essentially protect themselves and their cover-up.

What’s Next For Disclosure?

The UFO topic is becoming quite strange, because never before in history have we seen this type of mainstream media coverage. It’s hard to think that it’s not being used for reasons to “heighten” national security interests, perhaps a reason to justify space? After all, Donald Trump is now talking about creating a military space force, despite the fact that multiple high ranking military whistle-blowers, as well as the biggest military computer hack of all time that went mainstream in 2010, uncovers enough evidence to support the idea that space has already, quite possibly, been militarized.

Are they planning a false flag alien invasion? Or is a faction within the Deep State really trying to let the world know that something is going on here? Is this a process of slow disclosure to prepare us for the inevitable? Extraterrestrial contact.

If one thing is for certain, our plant is quite something…We don’t live in a world of transparency, the majority of people on the planet do not even want to think about the world, and what’s going on. The term “ignorance is bliss” is understandable, but one should not project any type of hate towards any type of activism…

It’s going to be interesting to see where the mainstream is going to take this. Unfortunately, much of the mainstream coverage and release seem to justify a “threat narrative.” Regardless of the fact that contained within the millions of pages of UFO-related documents, that have been released by multiple governments worldwide, many instances do mention “evasive” manoeuvres. Former Canadian Defence Minister Paul Helyer once said, “Decades ago, visitors from other planets warned us about where we were headed and offered to help. But instead, we, or at least some of us, interpreted their visits as a threat, and decided to shoot first and ask questions after.”

Perhaps that’s true, perhaps multiple races, some with good intentions and some with malevolent intent have visited us? This would line up with much of the testimony and research regarding a reptilian influence on Earth. Perhaps, as astronaut Storey Musgrave said at a UFO conference, there are trillions of races out there, “and they’re doing star travel.”  You can see a quick clip here, along with two other astronauts.

Just imagine the implications of such a truth? there is another way, whether it’s wormholes or warping space, there’s got to be a way to generate energy so that you can pull it out of the vacuum, and the fact that they’re here shows us that they found a way.”  Jack Kasher, Ph.D, a professor emeritus of physics at the University of Nebraska.

Intelligent beings from other star systems have been and are visiting our planet Earth. They are variously referred to as Visitors, Others, Star People, ETs, etc. . . . They are visiting Earth NOW; this is not a matter of conjecture or wishful thinking.

– Theodore C. Loder III, Phd, Professor Emeritus of Earth Sciences, University of New Hampshire

There are hundreds of statements from people like the above mentioned, to complement the documents and military whistle-blowers.

Do We Really Know What’s Going On?

Can we really say we know what is going on? To a degree, yes. We know that we’ve been lied to for decades regarding the existence of strange aerial objects that defy our understanding and belief. There is also a great deal of evidence to suggest some are extraterrestrial. There is also a great deal of evidence suggesting human governments are in contact with ET beings.

This information leaves no aspect of humanity untouched. The biggest thing we can do for disclosure right now is to continue to look at ourselves. We need to look at what we are allowing to happen on our planet right now via a controlling cabal/elite and come to terms with this reality.

We can change the human experience any-time we want, but what is going to take? So far, we’ve seen activism shift many problems. There are a lot of people out there doing a lot of good, but we still have major issues that need to be sorted out. What the global citizenry truly wants, is peace. That peace begins within each of us as Change Starts Within.

It’s time to start questioning our opinions, perspectives, beliefs in our systems today and ask why we choose to support them. It’s time to find out what stops us from having peace within ourselves within our own emotional turmoil we have in our lives. These shifts, in fact, effect collective consciousness and begin opening the door for others to change too.

The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic societyThose who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are moulded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.

– Edward Bernays (“the father of public relations”), Propaganda, 1928 (note that Bernays’ book, Propaganda, begins with the above quote).

It’s time for Earth to experience a new paradigm, and even though we fear stepping out of our comfort zone, we must.

Second FBI Informant Tried To Entrap Trump Campaign With $2 Million Offer For Hillary Dirt: Roger Stone

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Trump aide alleges that an FBI informant tried to spy on and infiltrate the campaign, and entrap them in a deal to exchange cash for Hillary intel.

  • Reflect On:

    If Trump was not an outsider, why was the Deep State so interested in spying and trying to infiltrate his campaign? What do we make of our election process when this is the type of behaviour taking place? Time to evolve?

We had been reporting a great deal during the 2016 campaign that if Hillary made her way into office it would have been the Deep State plan going to perfect tune once again. We talked about a great deal of corruption associated with her as a person, her foundation and her administration.

When Trump ended up in office we talked about this as a divide or fork in the Deep State that Trump was essentially disrupting the longtime running plan that had been going on for decades, as well as playing a key role in pushing for deeper reflections for humanity. This is why we see, for example, a full-on mainstream media barrage against Trump. The cabal is using their voices to attack and confuse the public about the ‘outsider’ that got his way in.

Now, as time goes on, more is being revealed about the shady nature of the 2016 election, as with any, and more is coming forward about not only the previous administration but Hillary’s campaign. We all know what they did to push Bernie Sanders out, the same was being done to Trump.

More Scandals

(Zerohedge) Now, Trump campaign aides Roger Stone and Michael Caputo say that a meeting Stone took in late May, 2016 with a Russian appears to have been an “FBI sting operation” in hindsight, following bombshell reports in May that the DOJ/FBI used a longtime FBI/CIA asset, Cambridge professor Stefan Halper, to perform espionage on the Trump campaign.

“When Stone arrived at the restaurant in Sunny Isles, he said, Greenberg was wearing a Make America Great Again T-shirt and hat. On his phone, Greenberg pulled up a photo of himself with Trump at a rally, Stone said. –WaPo”

The meeting went nowhere – ending after Stone told Greenberg “You don’t understand Donald Trump… He doesn’t pay for anything.” The Post independently confirmed this account with Greenberg.

After the meeting, Stone received a text message from Caputo – a Trump campaign communications official who arranged the meeting after Greenberg approached Caputo’s Russian-immigrant business partner.

“How crazy is the Russian?” Caputo wrote according to a text message reviewed by The Post. Noting that Greenberg wanted “big” money, Stone replied: “waste of time.” -WaPo

Stone and Caputo now think the meeting was an FBI attempt to entrap the Trump administration – showing the Post evidence that Greenberg, who sometimes used the name Henry Oknyansky, “had provided information to the FBI for 17 years,” based on a 2015 court filing related to his immigration status.

He attached records showing that the government had granted him special permission to enter the United States because his presence represented a “significant public benefit.”

Between 2008 and 2012, the records show, he repeatedly was extended permission to enter the United States under a so-called “significant public benefit parole.” The documents list an FBI agent as a contact person. The agent declined to comment.

Greenberg did not respond to questions about his use of multiple names but said in a text that he had worked for the “federal government” for 17 years.

“I risked my life and put myself in danger to do so, as you can imagine,” he said. -WaPo

“Wherever I was, from Iran to North Korea, I always send information to” the FBI, Greenberg told The Post. “I cooperated with the FBI for 17 years, often put my life in danger. Based on my information, there are so many arrests criminal from drugs and human trafficking, money laundering and insurance frauds.”

Stone and Caputo say it was a “sting operation” by the FBI:

“I didn’t realize it was an FBI sting operation at the time, but it sure looks like one now,” said Stone.

“If you believe that [Greenberg] took time off from his long career as an FBI informant to reach out to us in his spare time, I have a bridge in Brooklyn that I want to sell you,” Caputo said in an interview.

Greenberg told WaPo he stopped working with the FBI “sometime after 2013.”

In terms of the timeline, here’s where the Greenberg meeting fits in:

April 26, 2016 – Maltese professor Joseph Mifsud allegedly tells Trump campaign aide George Paoadopoulos that the Russians had dirt on Hillary Clinton

Papadopoulos’ statement of offense also detailed his April 26, 2016, meeting with Mifsud at a London hotel. Over breakfast Mifsud told Papadopoulos “he had just returned from a trip to Moscow where he had met with high-level Russian governmental officials.” Mifsud explained, “that on that trip he (the Professor) learned that the Russians had obtained ‘dirt’ on then-candidate Clinton.” Mifsud told Papadopoulos “the Russians had emails of Clinton.” -The Federalist

May 10, 2016 – Papadopoulos tells former Australian Diplomat Alexander Downer during an alleged “drunken barroom admission” that the Russians had information which “could be damaging” to Hillary Clinton.

July 2016 – FBI informant (spy) Stefan Halper meets with Trump campaign aide Carter Page for the first time, which would be one of many encounters.

July 31, 2016 – the FBI officially launches operation Crossfire Hurricane, the code name given to the counterintelligence operation against the Trump campaign.

September 2016 – Halper invites Papadopoulos to London, paying him $3,000 to work on an energy policy paper while wining and dining him at a 200-year-old private London club on September 15.

Foggy memory

Stone and Caputo say they didn’t mention the meeting during Congressional testimony because they forgot, chalking it up to unimportant “due diligence.” Apparently, random offers for political dirt in exchange for millions are so common in D.C. that one tends to forget.

Stone and Caputo said in separate interviews that they also did not disclose the Greenberg meeting during testimony before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence because they had forgotten about an incident that Stone calls unimportant “due diligence” that would have been “political malpractice” not to explore. -WaPo

While Greenberg and Stone’s account of the meeting mostly checked out (after Greenberg initially denied Stone’s account), Greenberg said that a Ukrainian friend named “Alexi” who was fired by the Clinton Foundation attended as well, and was the one asking for the money – while Stone said Greenberg came alone to the meeting.

“We really want to help Trump,” Stone recalled Greenberg saying during the brief encounter.

Greenberg says he sat at a nearby table while Alexei conducted the meeting. “Alexei talks to Mr. Stone, not me,” he wrote.

The Clinton Founation has denied ever employing anyone with the first name of Alexi.

Caputo’s attorney on Friday sent a letter amending his House testimony, and he plans to present Caputo’s account of the Greenberg incident to the Office of Inspector General for the Department of Justice, which has announced it is examining the FBI’s use of informants during the Russia probe. Stone said his attorney has done the same. -WaPo

Second FBI informant

Caputo hinted at the interaction in late May when he said that there were multiple government informants who approached the Trump campaign:

“Let me tell you something that I know for a fact,” Caputo said during a May 21 interview on Fox News. “This informant, this person [who] they tried to plant into the campaign … he’s not the only person who came into the campaign. And the FBI is not the only Obama agency who came into the campaign.”

“I know because they came at me,” Caputo added. “And I’m looking for clearance from my attorney to reveal this to the public. This is just the beginning.”

Stone told the Post that he may be indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and charged “with a crime unrelated to the election in order to silence him,” and that he anticipates the meeting with Greenberg may be used to try and pressure him to testify against President Trump (leaving no stone unturned), which he told the Post he would never do.
