Following are a few stories we have recently written, or articles of interest, for the compilation of the Democrat Dossier. Please help us reach our goal of raising $75,000 so we can hire more ex-trump presidential campaign researchers and writers – to give us the talent and resources needed to finish the Democrat Dossier.

In late May 2016, a man calling himself Henry Greenberg contacted Trump advisors Michael Caputo and Roger Stone offering negative information on Hillary Clinton. Both Stone and Caputo refused Greenberg’s offer, but in his May 2, 2018 interview with the Office of Special Counsel, Caputo noted the Mueller team knew far more than he did about the Greenberg approach. This set off alarms.
Following his OSC interview, Michael Caputo deployed the financial resources of the Michael Caputo Legal Fund to investigate Henry Greenberg in the United States and Russia. The results of this investigation are contained within the Democrat Dossier in an article titled – the Greenberg Dossier.
The inquiry discovered “Henry Greenberg” is actually an alias: his legal name is Gennadiy Vasilievich Vostretsov. The 59 year old Russian citizen has assumed several names, apparently to avoid scrutiny: Vostretsov has a long history of violent criminal activity in Russia and the United States.
By his own sworn admission, Vostretsov has been an informant for the Federal Bureau of Investigations for at least 17 years. Comprised within the Greenberg Dossier, you will find irrefutable proof that another FBI informant contacted advisors to presidential candidate Donald J. Trump in summer 2016, offering information on Hillary Clinton. Download Full file of PDF Sources – HERE.
House Demands Documents About FBI Informants Used To Surveil And Set-Up The Trump Team
By Democrat Dossier
On the heels of a stunning new revelation that another FBI informant had tried to infiltrate the Trump campaign during the 2016 U.S. presidential election, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunez has made a formal demand to the Justice Department to disclose how many FBI informants, or spies, were used to set-up or track the Trump campaign team, and associates.
Congressman Nunez has given the Justice Department a Monday deadline to produce documents and provide information on the FBI’s use of “informants against members or associates of the Trump campaign, and how many informants were used and how much money was spent on their activities.”
He is specifically asking for more information about “any contacts” and any “efforts to engage” between FBI intelligence sources and a dozen Trump campaign associates, including Donald Trump Jr., Michael Cohen, Michael Flynn, Stephen Miller, Peter Navarro, Corey Lewandowski, Michael Caputo, Sam Clovis, Sam Nunberg, George Papadopoulos, Carter Page, Walid Phares, Joseph Schmitz, and Roger Stone.
Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz reiterated the demand for documents when he grilled Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein during the House Intelligence Committee hearing on June 28th. Gaetz wants information on the newly uncovered FBI informant, Henry Greenberg, who seems to have been sent by the FBI to set-up Roger Stone and Michael Caputo by offering them damaging information about the Hillary Clinton Foundation. The following is Thursday’s question and answer session between Deputy Attorney General Rosentein and Congressman Gaetz:
Question from Gaetz – Are you aware, as you sit here today, of any payments that were made to any person to collect any intelligence on the Trump campaign prior to July 31, 2016?
Answer from Rosenstein – Nope. But keep in mind I wasn’t there. I only know what information that we have obtained from the FBI records.
Question from Gaetz – Are you, as you sit here today, aware of any efforts to contact Roger Stone that occurred prior to July 31, 2016?
Answer from Rosenstein – I don’t have any personal knowledge Congressman but I know that we are seeking to respond to Chairman Nunez’s request.
Question from Gaetz – How about the same question as it relates to Michael Caputo?
Answer from Rosenstein – I was’t there, and so I can only answer questions that we direct to the FBI.
Also on Thursday, June 28th, the United States House of Representatives passed a measure demanding that the Department of Justice turn over all documents by July 7th related to any information about informants used to spy on Trump associates during the 2016 presidential election, and a plethora of other documents the DOJ has resisted turing over to the House Intelligence Committee.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein could be held in contempt of Congress, or he could be impeached if he continues to withhold the information that Congress is demanding.
So far, we know of at least two FBI informants who approached Trump campaign associates in an elaborate scheme to entrap them into treason or a perjury trap by offering the targets “dirt” on Hillary Clinton and by introducing some of them to a few Russians that the Trump associates were later accused of meeting – which was used as a pretext to initiate and validate the Trump investigation.
Stefan Halper, a confirmed career-long CIA and FBI asset lured Cater Page and George Papadopoulos into perjury traps for misremembering or misrepresenting meetings they had with Halper, or with people Halper had introduced to them. And it was just revealed that a 17 year-long FBI informant, operating under the alias of Henry Greenberg tried to sell negative information on Hillary Clinton to Roger Stone and Michael Caputo – an offer that was immediately rebuffed by both men, but yet another example of government intelligence agencies run amok.
FBI Informant/Spy #1 – Stefan Halper:
Stefan Halper, the FBI informant who was paid to set-up or spy on Trump campaign associates George Papadopoulos, Cater Page and Sam Clovis is a career spook who was once married to the daughter of retired CIA Deputy Director Ray S. Cline. Cline was a good friend of former president George H.W. Bush, who he had befriended during their work together at the CIA. The Hapler/Cline family has close ties to the Bush clan. Stefan Halper even worked on the 1980 Bush presidential campaign as National Director for Policy Development, and donated $85,000 to the effort. Surprisingly, Halper was also a classmate and friend of Bill Clinton when they attended Oxford together.
His undercover infiltration of the Carter campaign during the 1980 presidential election, with the help of his CIA contacts, is eerily similar to what he did during the 2016 presidential election against candidate Donald Trump. Glenn Greenwald recently reported in the Intercept, “Four decades ago, Halper was responsible for a long-forgotten spying scandal involving the 1980 election, in which the Reagan campaign – using CIA officials managed by Halper, reportedly under the direction of former CIA Director and then-Vice-Presidential candidate George H.W. Bush – got caught running a spying operation from inside the Carter administration.“
Halper professes to be a professor at Cambridge University, but his reported income suggests that his real job is in espionage. Halper was recently paid at least $411,000 and reportedly up to $1 million through the Office of Net Assessment, a U.S. intelligence service within the Department of Defense.
Beginning In March, 2016, over 4 months prior to the July 31, 2016 date when the FBI claims to be the beginning of the Trump Russian collusion investigation, FBI informant Stefan Halper was sent to set-up George Papadopoulos.
Halper met Papadopoulos, according to statments made by the government “by chance” while traveling in Italy on March 14th, 2016, but we now know that to be untrue because Halper was sent there at the behest of the FBI. The meeting was not a random coincidence. The men supposedly struck up a conversation about Russia and decided to meet again on March 24th, in London, where FBI informant Halper, introduced Papadopoulos to a female foreign national from Russia who was used as part of the plot to impicate him.
Halper then paid Papadopoulos $3,000 to give a speech in London on April 26th, 2016, and revealed to him at that time that Russia had dirt on Hillary Clinton in the form of thousands of damaging emails. Papadopoulos did not disclose all of these details to the FBI when questioned about it and misremembered a few dates about his encounters with the FBI informant Stefan Halper and the female Russian national that Halper introduced him to, so based on those errors in his timeline he was arrested for perjury and then pressured to reach a plea deal with the same FBI that had paid an informant to frame him.
Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI to avoid 5 years in federal prison because he told them that he met Halper and the female foreign national from Russia before he was on the Trump foreign policy team, but based on FBI documentation it appears that Papadopoulos met the woman a few days after he was appointed to the foreign policy team. He was originally approached by FBI informant Halper on March 14, 2016 right between the time that he learned he was going to be on the foreign policy team, but not yet officially on the team (March 6th) and March 21, the date in which Trump announced Papadopoulos was joining the newly forming team of foreign affairs advisors. One could argue, and Papadopoulos has, that he was not even an official member of the foreign policy team until Trump announced it – which was a week after FBI informant Stefan Halper approached him in Italy. Papadopoulos did nothing illegal or improper by conversing with foreign nationals, except to misremember the date he met them. As a foreign policy advisor – it was his responsibility to discuss world affairs with foreign dignitaries.
Based on email evidence and sworn testimony it appears that Papadopoulos was much more interested in reporting to campaign staff about his belief that the Russians wanted better relations with the Americans going forward rather than anything related to the Clinton emails that FBI informant Stefan Halper told Papadopoulos about in an effort to set him up. Since Papadopoulos had no interest in the emails, the feds manufactured a perjury trap. Read the Papadopoulos plea deal here.
FBI Informant/Spy #2 – “Henry Greenberg”:
In the summer of 2016, in the run-up to the November presidential election, and around the same time that FBI informant Stefan Halper offered Carter Page and George Papadopoulos “dirt” on Hillary Clinton, Roger Stone and Michacl Caputo were approached by long-time FBI informant “Henry Greenberg’, who was also offering information of great value to the Trump campaign. The connection between Halper and the FBI has already been established but the ongoing investigation into Greenberg has only just begun.
In response to a general question from Special Counsel investigators in a May 2018 interview, Caputo described a May 2016 telephone call from a man who identified himself as Hank Greenberg who said he had dirt on Hillary Clinton. Caputo referred him to Roger Stone, to vet. Stone had a brief meeting with Greenberg at a restaurant in Miami where Greenberg offered to deliver “negative information on Hillary” for $2 million. Stone scoffed at the suggestion that he or Trump would pay for opposition research and concluded the meeting with a text back to Caputo telling him that it was a waste of time, and suggested that Greenberg was crazy.
Caputo was stunned when he realized after his meeting with the Mueller team that the feds knew more about “Greenberg” than he did. He became suspicious and then determined to find out who was Henry Greenberg. Using the resources of the Caputo Defense Fund, Michael Caputo hired a private investigator in America and also in Russia to find out more about Henry Greenberg. The answer to that question was compiled into a 140 page dossier on the background of Mr. Greenberg, his ties to organized crime and the work he has done for the FBI.
Henry Greenberg’s true identity is Gennadiy Vasilievich Vostretsov. He has used at least four different aliases in the past, including Gennady Aneurolepidum, Gennady Vostretsov-Arzhanik, Henry Oknyansky and Henry Greenberg. Under his different identities, he has spent at least 10 years in Russian prisons and two years in U.S.federal detention for fraud, theft, child support, assault with a deadly weapon and multiple occasions of driving under the influence. He is a convicted violent felon, from Russia, who would not have been admitted into the United States if it were not for the 14 separate visa waivers he received from the FBI. In a 2015 court filing Greenberg admitted that he has been an FBI informant for the past 17 years and has risked his life in Iran, North Korea and in the United States while working undercover for the FBI. With a criminal record “Greenberg” could not be in the United States in 2016 on any other type of VISA. Hopefully, the House Intelligence Committee will be able to learn exactly how the FBI Informant was in the USA that year.
This new revelation offers additional proof that the Trump presidential campaign team and associates were spied on and set-up to be entrapped by factions of the U.S intelligence agencies and leaders of the Justice Department who were politically motivated to prevent Trump from becoming, or remaining, president of the United States.
Trump Tower Meeting was an Incalculable Coincidence – or a Set-Up
It’s hard to even calculate the odds. Could it be just a coincidence that the same Russian woman who offered Don Trump Jr. damaging information on Hillary Clinton was also, at the same time, working with the man who created the Steele Dossier to damage the candidacy and reputation of Donald Trump Sr.. It all adds up to a set-up.
But Wait, there’s more! We now know that Obama’s attorney general, Loretta Lynch granted the same type of “informant” visa waiver to the Russian spy who tried to set-up Don Trump Jr. as the FBI gave to Henry Greenberg – the 17-year long FBI informant who offered damaging information about Hillary Clinton to Michael Caputo and Roger Stone in another apparent set-up attempt. Neither Greenberg nor the Russian spy would have been in America and able to offer “dirt” on Hillary Clinton to Trump’s campaign associates if the FBI and DOJ had not granted them VIP access into the United States, to give them the opportunity to disrupt and/or set-up the Trump presidential campaign.
Natalia Veselnitskaya, The Russian attorney who orchestrated the infamous Trump Tower meeting with Don Jr. and Paul Manafort to offer “dirt” on Hillary Clinton, was also, coincidentally, working with Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson – who was paid by the Hillary Clinton Campaign and the Democratic National Committee to create the “Steele Dossier” to find “dirt” on, and discredit, presidential candidate Donald Trump.
This is either the biggest coincidence of all time – OR the Trump team was being set-up by Glenn Simpson, and his clients.
Glenn Simpson was once a Wall Street Journal reporter but he found more lucrative and fulfilling work as a political and corporate hitman, for hire by any political party, corporate client or foreign government willing to pay his exorbitant fees. His firm, Fusion GPS, specializes is digging up damaging information on people for corporate clients and political powerbroker’s and then getting that information published by his friends in the media to influence Americans on behalf of his foreign and domestic clients.
The Steele Dossier is a very expensive opposition research report that was created by Fusion GPS/Glenn Simpson in the summer of 2016, in the run-up to the presidential election, to find damaging information on then republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, his businesses and his associates, so that the information could be used to discredit him and his campaign team in the media and on social networks during and after the presidential campaign.
During his Senate Judiciary Committee testimony, Fusion GPS owner Glenn Simpson admitted that he was paid $1.02 million in fees and expenses by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign, through the law firm Perkins Cole, to create the Steele Dossier. He also revealed how he tried to get the information printed in numerous media outlets and also helped refer it to the FBI – who later used the unverified dossier as a pretext to open the Russia/Trump collusion investigation.
Natalia Veselnitskaya represents herself as the corporate attorney for Prevezon during her trips to the United States but she has recently admitted that she was also “an informant.” Prevezon is a Russian real estate holdings company, based in Cyprus, and run by Denis Katsyv, the son of Pyotr Katsyv, one of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s closest advisers and a person on the U.S. sanctions list. Veselnitskaya was given “unlimited resources” by the Kremlin to run a campaign to get the Magnitsky Act repealed in the U.S. and to defame Bill Browder in the media. Glenn Simpson was hired to do the job.
While undercover as a Russian spy, Natalia Veselnitskaya was working on a project in America with Glenn Simpson and his company Fusion GPS on behalf of Yuri Chaika the Chief Prosecutor-General of Russia, to collect and disseminate “dirt” on Russian Federation foe – Bill Browder, who’s advocacy against human rights abuses in Russia has led to the passage of the Magnitsky Act in America, and made Browder one of Russian president Putin’s most despised dissidents. Glenn Simpson was hired by Natalia Veselnitskaya in 2014 to promote the Russian governments propaganda points on Bill Browder, to ruin his reputation, and to put pressure on politicians to repeal the Magnitsky Act.
Through his work with Prevezon and Natalia Veselnitskaya, Glenn Simpson was acting as an unregistered agent of a hostile foreign country to change United States political policy and to get Russian sanctions removed. Some say that’s treason. It is definitely a violation of the law. The Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) is a United States law passed in 1938 requiring that agents representing the interests of foreign powers in a “political or quasi-political capacity” disclose to the U.S. Department of Justice their relationship with the foreign government and information about related activities and finances. Glenn Simpson/Fusion GPS never registered as a foreign agent even though he was working in the U.S. to overturn the Magnitsky Act on behalf of a Russian oligarch on the U.S sanctions list, who has close ties to Putin.
Natalia Veselnitskaya would not have ever been admitted into the United States to have the Trump Tower meeting with Don Trump Jr. if it were not for the intervention of the Obama Justice Department.
Veselnitskaya’s visa request to come to America in June 2016 was initially denied but Obama’s Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, signed off on a “extraordinary circumstances” visa waiver that allowed Veselnitskaya to enter the country to attend a Prevezon court case, which also gave her the opportunity to have the Trump Tower meeting – both occurred on June 9th, 2016.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Paul Monteleoni was quoted in a court transcript as saying. “The government bypassed the normal visa process and gave a type of extraordinary permission to enter the country called “Significant Public Benefit Parole”. That’s a discretionary act that the statute allows the attorney general to do in extraordinary circumstances. In this case, we did that so that Mr. Katsyv could testify. And we made the further accommodation of allowing his Russian lawyer (Veselnitskaya) into the country to assist.”
According to Glenn Simpson’s unbelievable, and probably perjurous, Senate Judiciary Committee testimony, Veselnitskaya didn’t tell him about the meeting she had with Trump Jr. while she was visiting the United States.
Veselnitskaya flew into New York from Moscow on June 8th, 2016 and had dinner with Glenn Simspon that evening. The next day, June 9th, she attended a Prevezon court case with Glenn Simpson and then she attended the infamous Trump Tower meeting later on the same day. The following day, on June 10th, Veselnitskaya had dinner again with Glenn Simpson, but this time it was in Washington D.C.. People in the inteligence industry would consider those meetings to be a “briefing” and “debriefing” for the Trump Tower meeting. Simpson claims that they did not discuss the Trump Tower meeting at all and that he knew nothing about it – but that is hard to believe, especially when considering that the man Simpson paid to investigate Trump and his associates in Russia (Edward Baumgartner) was also working closely with Veselnitskaya on the Prevezon campaign – at the same time Baumgartner was investigating Trump in Russia for the Steele Dossier.
Baumgartner was the person responsible for finding all of the “dirt” or derogatory information he could find, or make up, from within Russia, about the targeted individuals for Glenn Simpson and his clients at the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton campaign to use in the Steele Dossier. Baumgartner said his responsibilities for Glenn Simpson/Fusion GPS involved writing reports that compiled “everything publicly known” about Trump and campaign associates like Carter Page and Manafort.
Baumgartner, who cofounded the UK-based intelligence consultancy Edward Austin in 2010, has a degree in Russian language and runs his own consulting firm similar to Fusion GPS (but with a focus on Russia and Ukraine). During congressional testimony Simpson admitted that Baumgartner had worked on both the Prevezon campaign (with Veselnitskaya) and also the Steele Dossier for an overlapping period of at least three months.
Baumgartner said he served as “an interface” with Veselnitskaya, because she does not speak much English. They worked “very closely” together in Washington and Moscow, reviewing documents and finding witnesses who could bolster Prevezon’s case. Baumgartner said he overheard Veselnitskaya speaking on the telephone to the Chief Russian prosecutor, Yuri Chaika, several times in a way that seemed “friendly, like a family friend.”
Natalia Veselnitskaya is now back in Russia but before leaving America she admitted on NBC News that while working with Glenn Simpson/Fusion GPS she was actually a spy. She said, ”Since 2013, I have been actively communicating with the office of the Russian prosecutor general…I am an informant.”
Instead of protecting Trump and his family by helping to keep foreign intelligence agents away from the presidential campaign, the Obama administration put them in peril by giving a Russian spy an “extraordinary circumstances” visa waiver so she could enter the country to apparently try to set-up the Trump campaign team.
Since we now know Veselnitskaya was a spy for the Russian government isn’t it prudent to investigate her co-conspirators and cooperating agents in America, like Glenn Simpson and the company he seemingly runs as an illegal international spy agency for foreign clients and political campaigns – Fusion GPS.
So far, what we know regarding the Russian collusion controversy is that the FBI planted their mole, Stefan Halper (spy #1), into the Trump campaign to introduce Carter Page and George Papadopoulos to people connected to the Russian government who the FBI informant told them had damaging information about Hillary Clinton. They both pleaded guilty to lying to federal agents for misremembering certain encounters or conversations they had with FBI informant Stefan Halper or the people he introduced them to – not for Russian collusion.
The Democrat Dossier recently exposed the fact that Henry Greenberg (spy #2), who tried to set-up Roger Stone and Michael Caputo by offering them damaging information about Hillary Clinton, was also an FBI informant for 17 years, and who would not have ever been admitted into the U.S. if it were not for the special “informant” visa waiver he received from the FBI. Congressman Devin Nunes has demanded acting attorney general Rod Rosenstein turn over information he has about Henry Greenberg while Congressman Jim Jordan threatened to impeach Rosenstein for refusing to turn over information on the use of informants to infiltrate and possibly set-up the Trump team.
Natalia Veselnitskaya seems to be spy #3 – with a direct link to the the Kremlin, Glenn Simpson and his clients from the Hillary Clinton campaign and National Democratic Committee.
