💰💦Grenell, Plahotniuc, Firtash & more.

In 2016, Grenell embarked on a smear campaign against a Moldovan prosecutor who was cooperating with an inv’n of large-scale 💰💦 op.

Gofman’s story — and how he came to be targeted by Grenell — is something out of a spy novel, w/ the longtime prosecutor fleeing Moldova in a borrowed car to share details about the allegedly corrupt dealings by the leadership of his country with the FBI.

In 2014, Gofman was a deputy chief in the country’s Office of Prevention and Control of Money Laundering.

MAIN THREAD
In 2008, while Manafort was working in Ukraine for Yanukovych, Firtash’s company Group DF agreed to commit $112M to Manafort’s vision for “Bulgari Tower,” a $1.5 billion skyscraper project in midtown Manhattan on the corner of Park Avenue & 56th Street.

🔑The tower deal later collapsed, but not before Firtash wired in a $25M deposit from Raiffeisen Zentralbank Österreich AG, an Austrian bank that U.S. officials believed served as a Mogilevich front.

Have fun with Orban, ask him how Putin's doing. Maybe he can give you tips on using anti-Semitism & homophobia to cement political power, which he learned from GOP strategist & Jewish gay man Arthur Finkelstein, may he rest in pugnacity.

"...as [Dmitry] Firtash’s foreign agent, Davis said his firm was being paid $80,000 a month — or about a million dollars a year — by a man described by prosecutors as an “upper-echelon” associate of Russian organized crime."

Russian MOB.
" Although Davis lists his past controversial clients in Africa and Honduras on his website, Firtash’s name is noticeably absent. Davis hardly ever talks about Firtash, at least not on the record,"

WHY NOT?
"...even though Justice Department filings make it clear that [Lanny] and his colleagues at Davis, Goldberg & Galper frequently contact D.C. journalists about Firtash to pitch stories, issue statements and press releases, or to respond to questions."

DAMMIT, @Jack!

No doubt now that RUS has control over this platform. Maybe you shouldn't have taken Usmanov's blood money. But you did. So, this is where we're at.
OH, & I'm gonna re-thread now how Semion met PUTIN.
2. So those screenshots in the tweet above are from the offshore leaks database (db of offshore LLCs) and this 2010 article from the Ukrainian press. kyivpost.com/article/conten…
I'm showing you that the main account is RZB, by confirming the bank's CEO in the web. And, I'm showing...
3. The name STUART P. BLACKBURN. A mysterious name, with almost 500 LLCs - some of which go back over 60 years. 😎

Now for the TWEETS THAT HAVE DISAPPEARED...
I showed you some more offshore LLCS (w/ sourcing) that belong to Semion Mogilevich's man, DMITRY/DMITRO FIRTASH.
