A Disgusting Trump-Harvey Weinstein Connection Just Surged Into The National Spotlight (UPDATED)

0

President  Donald Trump’s malicious  attack on former public servants in the Obama Administration just got linked to the same Israeli private intelligence company that Harvey Weinstein used to suppress the stories of his female victims.

Trump apparently hired Black Cube, a private intelligence company founded by former officers in Israel’s spy agency, Mossad, to go after former Obama deputy assistant Colin Kahl – who also served as National Security Advisor to Vice President Biden, and former Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes.

Last night, Kahl penned an indignant tweetstorm (see below) about Trump’s evil attempt to incriminate him by having spies email his wife using a false identity in order to seek an in-person meeting.

In a sloppy piece of tradecraft, Black Cube apparently re-used the same London-based front company named Reuben Capital Partners to contact Kahl’s wife seeking compromising information, which they also used to target Harvey Weinstein’s victims. The Al-Monitor‘s Laura Rozen reports:

Black Cube denied being involved in Trump’s clandestine operations against the former Obama officials, but Colin Kahl – who just published a major Washington Post op-ed about the Iran deal – is not buying the denials.

Shockingly, Weinstein’s spies from the firm continued to contact one of his victims, prominent actress Rose McGowan, even after the story of her harassment came to light.

Now, Ronan Farrow has just reported for the New Yorker that Rhodes’ wife was also targeted by Black Cube:

    In June, 2017, Ann Norris, a former State Department official, received an e-mail containing an unusual proposal. Norris is married to Ben Rhodes, a former foreign-policy adviser to President Obama and a prominent advocate of the Iran nuclear deal.

 

    In the e-mail, a woman who introduced herself as Eva Novak and claimed to work for a London-based film company called Shell Productions asked Norris to consult on a movie that she described as “ ‘All the President’s’ Men meets ‘The West Wing’ ”: it would follow the personal lives of “government officials in the positions that determine war and Peace” during times of geopolitical crisis, including “nuclear negotiations with a hostile nation.” Recalling the exchange, Ann Norris said that she found Eva Novak’s request “bizarre,” and that she “never responded.”

Harvey Weinstein hired Black Cube in a desperate attempt to stop publication of Ronan Farrow’s stories in the New Yorker and the New York Times – which obviously, failed – leading to the rise of the #MeToo movement and Pulitzer prizes for the aforementioned newsrooms.
