“Ambassador Woolsey and his wife have been in communication with the FBI regarding the Sept. 19, 2016 meeting Ambassador Woolsey was invited to attend by one of Gen. Flynn’s business partners. Ambassador Woolsey and his wife have responded to every request, whether from the FBI, or, more recently, the Office of the Special Counsel.”
Woolsey spokesman Jonathan Franks
Former CIA director James Woolsey pitched a $10 million contract to two Turkish businessmen to help discredit a controversial U.S.-based cleric Fethullah Gülen. Follow us on Twitter: @INTEL_TODAY
On September 20 2016, former CIA Director James Woolsey met with Turkish businessmen Ekim Alptekin and Sezgin Baran Korkmaz over lunch at the Peninsula Hotel in New York.
Please, take good note of the date and check the timeline below! This event is highly significant and completely destroys the credibility of Woosley. The story he told about General Mike Flynn cannot possibly be ‘the truth and nothing but the truth.” Follow the money!
Woolsey and his wife — Nancy Miller — proposed a lobbying and public relations campaign targeting Fethullah Gulen. Basically, they told the Alptekin and Korkmaz that they could do a much better job than Flynn when it comes to discredit Gulen.
In an email memo — seen by Reuters — Woolsey and Miller sketched a plan to “draw attention to the cleric’s possible role in the coup attempt” and encourage an official investigation into his activities. The name of Jeff Session was mentioned, among others.
At the September 20 meeting, Miller said she and Woolsey were in a better position than Flynn to influence decision-makers about Gulen’s alleged role in the coup. Again, this is really wild. The US-Turkey Treaty on extradition is crime-specific and the accusations by the Turkish government against Gulen are not listed in that convention.
Perhaps, we will find out that Woolsey and his wife spent a very long time in Turkey prior to the attempted coup?
This previously undisclosed meeting (Sept. 20 2016) shows — beyond any reasonable doubts — that Woosley and Flynn were competing with each other to win the lucrative business deal with Alptekin regarding the “extradition” of Gulen. It does not get any lower than that. Truly despicable…
As General Michael Hayden — Former director of the CIA and the National Security Agency — recently suggested:
“It’s beginning to feel a little bit like Nicaragua around here.”
Perhaps, it is a tad unfair… To Nicaragua.
