Accused Russian Hacker Yevgeniy Nikulin Claims The FBI Offered Him Cash, An Apartment, An U.S. Citizenship If He Confessed To Hacking Hillary's Emails On The Orders Of Donald Trump
Accused Russian Hacker Yevgeniy Nikulin, a 29 year old Russian citizen currently held in the Czech Republic and wanted on extradition by both Russia and the United States in connection with separate hacking incidents, claims that the United Sates FBI visited him and offered him cash, an apartment, and U.S. citizenship if he confessed to hacking Hillary's emails on the orders of then candidate Donald Trump.
(Note: When it says Hillary's emails, it's hard to know exactly if he is referring to the DNC, Podesta, or both. His letter says Hillary's emails, and Newsweek interpreted that as Podesta, and The Guardian interpreted it as the DNC. He would have to be asked what he was referring to.)
In a letter sent to the Present Time, Nikulin talks about the interrogations that took place on November 14-15, 2016 and February 7, 2017. Interviewed with the people he identifies as "Agent" and "Miller." A Russian citizen claims that he was offered to take the blame for hacking the post of US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. All quotes from the letter are published with preservation of author's spelling.
"In the future, I received a proposal from A [gent]:" You will have to declare that you have broken Hillory Clinton's mailbox for D. Trump on the orders of V. Putin, you must agree to extradition to the USA, here we will remove all the accusations we will give you Apartment and money, American citizenship "- I refused, soon the" interrogation "was over, the Agent said that they would still come," Nikulin wrote.

(Because the post is long and detailed and would require a good deal of html formatting which would take me a lot of time, I just linked to the post as opposed to posting the entire thing here as I often do with a blog post.)
Archives of FR show there have been just a small handful of articles here regarding Nikulin, but they haven't gotten a lot of attention, and this story hasn't gotten out into the pro-Trump media like I would have hoped.
What I did was an extensive analysis and spent a significant amount of time on this (many hours). I used Google custom search and searched the archives from October onward for all info I could find on Nikulin. There wasn't a massive amount of articles and info out there. The mainstream press gave this minimal if any coverage for the most part. Ask anyone on the street who Nikulin is, and I doubt they'd have the faintest clue.
I divided the info into five sections by doing a timeline from October up until the most recent news article in part 5 from July. That was a quiet piece from the AP that was very interesting which got no coverage beyond an article on the internet - certainly not CNN Breaking News or in the WaPo or NYT. I would say the organization with the overall best coverage of it by far is the UK Guardian. At the end, I provide an analysis of the three options and a final summary and conclusions we can draw. It's lengthy, but I wanted to get all of the information out there to document it and so people can form their own conclusions.
Again, one can argue this guy is lying, but IF (and even if it's a small if) he's telling the truth, this would be all the difference in the world for Trump because it would end the investigation.
Who erased Hilary’s emails?
Get this character back to the U.S. BEFORE DEEP STATERS WITHIN THE STATE DEPARTMENT SABOTAGE THAT POSSIBILITY!
They need something so nobody asks,
“Who Killed Seth Rich For Leaking The DNC E-Mails?”
How much ca$h is Mueller getting from RosenKrantz to essentially do the same thing?
What did Comey know, and when did he know it?
It wouldn’t surprise me. The FBI sets up people all the time in their quest for “anything”.
Nice knowing you Yegevniy.
~We know the FBI visited him aligned with the dates that he said.
~There is zero proof of collusion.
~The sealed affidavit was about the hacks in 2012-2013.
~Russia does want him back, but that doesn't mean he hacked the emails or they are trying to use him as a pawn. He says he is innocent of the charges Russia is accusing him of as well - he is willing to go to Russia in light of the fact the charges are lighter and it's his home country.
~If he hacked the emails on the orders of the Russian government or this was a narrative they cooked up to try to discredit the Russia investigation, he would not be fighting the charges from the Russian government and declaring himself innocent.
~If Russia cooked up this narrative to discredit the FBI investigation, they'd be loud and vocal highlighting that the FBI is falsely accusing their citizen and demanding him back. In order to discredit, it has to have attention. They are giving it none.
~His attorney seems generally baffled and thinks he is a "political pawn."
~If he is guilty of these hacks in Russia & the U.S. or both, his denials would indicate a pattern of dishonesty.
~Russia does not like the U.S. arresting their people especially in these times, so that likely explains why they decided they wanted him instead.
~The FBI traveling all the way to Prague for a case like this is rare:
Mark Galeotti, senior researcher at the Institute of International Relations Prague, said the presence of Miller in Prague at least suggested that the case was no ordinary one. An FBI agent travelling from the US to a third country as part of an extradition request is extremely unusual and highlights that the case is seen as significant, he said.
~He was tried in a tiny room & is in poor health:
Tuesdays hearing was held in a tiny room inside the prison, an unprecedented measure which was ostensibly for security reasons but also meant only four journalists could access the room. In all my 25 years as a lawyer, I dont remember any cases being tried inside the prison, including serial killers or organised crime cases, said Martin Sadilek, Nikulins Czech lawyer.
Nikulins mother, who attended the hearing, declined to comment except to say she was worried that her son looks like skin and bones and that she believed the case was political.
~The promise of cash, an apartment, and U.S. citizenship seems like a lot, but the FBI may have been bluffing.
~Levashov and Lisov also seem to indicate the FBI is on a fishing expedition for Russian hackers...if not more.
~The FBI and the MSM are nearly radio silent. The deep state leaks to The Washington Post, New York Times, and CNN are not flowing on this issue, and these outlets have refused to even cover the story - very telling.
~That said, there were 10 people in the room, and none of them have indicated such a deal was offered.
The next step suicide, found hung with wrist burns, or 5 shots to the back of the head with a 22cal. in an attempted robbery. The dead fish stink in the FBI is beginning to smell even worse. This can’t be Hoover’s FBI. As far as Mueller is concerned, I would not trust him regardless, he has a sleeze look about him.
Many thanks for the research and write up!
Unfortunately, it is all too plausible, forget plausible...it is far too likely to be true.
Old news....worth bringing up again....and again...and again!
Well, he’s in a Czech jail cell right now waiting to see if he’ll be extradited here. As is detailed, months in prison have left him in poor health.
Outlook Express has a function by which you can compose an email by simply placing text in the body, formatted as you like, then click on the "HTML" tab at the lower left and the text is automatically shown in HTML formatting. Just copy and paste that into your FR post. Bingo. A HUGE time saver. Just an FYI for future reference.
Thanks for reading!
..... Exactly!!! .... At this point it should be imperative that it should be arranged to have this Yevgeniy Nikulin taken into protective custody to give testimony to establish this event as protocol used by the FBI. This could cast extreme doubt and neuter any previous and further allegations and information gathered by the FBI under the leadership of the previous administrations lackeys.
It deserves a healthy degree of skepticism, but IF true, it would be huge.
If this can be proven true with verifiable facts and evidence this could be the biggest scandal of governmental agents committing sedition. Move over Rosenbergs.
