Email excerpt with red dots added for emphasis.

Barbara Ledeen is a long-time Senate staffer and Republican operative. In 2004, she sent an email to Trump Supreme Court pick Kavanaugh about “spying” on Democrats, saying that she had a “mole”. And, so, Republicans have gotten caught spying on Democrats more than once since their Watergate burglary. She has connections to Trump’s former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, the Iran-Contra Scandal, and the Niger Uranium Forgery-Iraq War Scandal through her husband, Michael Ledeen. Without knowing her maidan name, we can’t easily find any connections which she may or may not have to Roger Stone-CREEP-Nixon, etc.

Ledeen was involved in the Iran–Contra affair as a consultant of National Security Advisor Robert C. McFarlane. Ledeen vouched for Iranian intermediary Manucher Ghorbanifar. In addition, he met with Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Peres, officials of the Israeli Foreign Ministry and the Central Intelligence Agency to arrange meetings with high-ranking Iranian officials, whereby U.S supported Iranians would be given weapons by Israel, and would proceed to negotiate with Hizbollah for the release of hostages in Lebanon.[11] Ledeen’s own version of the events is published in his book, Perilous Statecraft.[12]…” Read more here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Ledeen

The Niger uranium forgeries were forged documents initially released in 2001 by SISMI (Italian military intelligence), which seem to depict an attempt made by Saddam Hussein in Iraq to purchase yellowcake uranium powder from Niger during the Iraq disarmament crisis. On the basis of these documents and other indicators, the governments of the United States and the United Kingdom asserted that Iraq violated United Nations Iraq sanctions by attempting to procure nuclear material for the purpose of creating weapons of mass destruction… In an interview published 7 April 2005, Cannistraro was asked by Ian Masters what he would say if it were asserted that the source of the forgery was former National Security Council and State Department consultant Michael Ledeen. (Ledeen had also allegedly been a liaison between the United States Intelligence Community and SISMI two decades earlier.) Cannistraro answered by saying: “you’d be very close”…[42]” (FN 42: AlterNet (7 April 2005). “Who Forged the Niger Documents?”) Read more here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Niger_uranium_forgeries

The US president, George Bush, used the forged documents to build a case for going to war with Iraq. The US has since accepted they were bogus and blamed British intelligence for supplying the information…https://www.theguardian.com/media/2003/jul/17/pressandpublishing.iraq
