    Caught in the Trap

    Heinz-Christian Strache, the head of Austria's right-wing populist FPÖ party, met with a purported Russian multimillionaire on Ibiza in July 2017. She offered him campaign support in exchange for public contracts. What he didn't know was that the entire exchange was being recorded by hidden cameras.

    Austrian far-right leader quits over video sting as coalition teeters


    Austrian Vice Chancellor Heinz-Christian Strache (right) with Russian woman -- kompromat. If you look closely, there is a line of coke on the table.

    5/17/19
    VIENNA (Reuters) - Austria’s vice chancellor and longtime far-right leader, Heinz-Christian Strache, said on Saturday he was stepping down over “catastrophic” video footage of him that threatened to bring down the right-wing coalition government. Freedom Party (FPO) leader Strache was shown in the footage of as-yet unknown origin meeting a woman posing as the niece of a Russian oligarch in 2017, shortly before the election that brought him to power. In the footage published by German media on Friday evening, a week before European Parliament elections, he appears to offer to funnel contracts toward a company in exchange for political and financial support.
    In return for Russian campaign cash, Strache offers the Russian woman (agent) assistance in seeing that the Russians could purchase multiple Austrian media companies (of course for propaganda purposes).

    Austria's Vice Chancellor Quits After Video Surfaces Of Meeting With Russian Investor

    NPR reports


    Austria's vice chancellor has resigned after German media published a video that purportedly showed him offering government contracts to a woman posing as the niece of a Russian oligarch, in exchange for media coverage and political funding.

    The scandal drove Chancellor Sebastian Kurz to call for snap elections instead of trying to revive his weakened coalition government. "Enough is enough," he told reporters on Saturday in Vienna.

    Vice Chancellor Heinz-Christian Strache announced he would step down earlier in the day at a press conference in the capital. Crowds stood outside the chancellor's office waiting for news.

    Strache, who leads Austria's far-right Freedom Party, described the incident as a "targeted political assassination."

    It comes less than a week before European Parliament elections.

    On Friday, German news magazine Der Spiegel and daily newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung published the calamitous video. It shows Strache sitting on a couch in a T-shirt, discussing potential deals with a Russian investor.

    She proposes to buy a 50% stake in Austria's Kronen-Zeitung newspaper and Strache promises her construction contracts if she helps his political party. The group also discusses how to disguise a donation to the party through an association. Their meeting was said to have lasted six hours.

    Austrian government collapses as far right leader caught in video sting

    From Reuters

    Austrian government collapses as far right leader caught in video sting

    VIENNA (Reuters) - Austria raced on Saturday toward a snap election as Chancellor Sebastian Kurz pulled the plug on his coalition with the far right after its leader was caught on video offering to fix state contracts with a woman posing as a Russian oligarch’s niece.

    The far-right Freedom Party’s Heinz-Christian Strache resigned as vice chancellor and party leader after the video was released by two German news organizations. He acknowledged that the video was “catastrophic” but denied breaking the law.

    Kurz, a conservative who formed a coalition with the Freedom Party a year and a half ago, said the apparent video sting, in which Strache discusses contracts in return for financial or political favors, was the last straw in the relationship.

    COMMENT:-

    Possibly not all that earthshaking from an American perspective, but I did find the defence position that runs along the lines of

    "We were caught before we could actually do anything illegal so that means we are **I*N*N*O*C*E*N*T** and continuing to dwell on the fact that we were seriously talking about doing something illegal is outright persecution."

    to be as amusing as anyone in the US would find it if any American political figure were to be dumb enough to attempt it.

    Don't you?
    I was told that the best things for me were to eat healthy foods, walk up hills, stop smoking cigars, and cut out drinking Scotch.
    With my record, I don't _deserve_ the best. What's second best?

    I sure hope the West shakes all this off and comes back together tighter than they were before all this russian interference. Bolster the **** out of NATO and drop a couple goddamn bases in Ukraine after we invite them into the UN.

    **** that pissant putin.
