Trump’s inaugural committee was SUBPOENAED to turn over documents about its donors, finances & activities to SDNY, regarding ALL donors and event attendees; any benefits (tickets, photo w/Trump etc); vendors; contracts; and more.😎

#Corruption
nyti.ms/2UEKrP5?smid=n…
An earlier report from @ABC said that prosecutors “plan to #subpoena” Trump’s inauguration committee, and now, the @nytimes reports that they WERE subpoenaed.😃

🔥SDNY prosecutors are probing the possibility that the inaugural committee made FALSE statements to the Federal Election Commission (FEC)👉🏼its a CRIME to knowingly make false or fraudulent statements to a federal agency.🙄

@RepAdamSchiff says Deutsche Bank has a history of “laundering #Russian🇷🇺money...this was the one bank willing to do business with the @Trump Organization...is this coincidence?

If this is a form of compromise, it needs to be exposed.”😎

🔥@RepAdamSchiff notes that Don Jr *bragged* that “#Russians🇷🇺make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets.”

And Putin’s favorite Western bank— Deutsche Bank — was the ONLY one who’d lend to Trump Org.🙄

#TrumpRussia
#Kompromat

Now, @RepAdamSchiff says that House Intel will seek records from Deutsche Bank about its loans to @realDonaldTrump.🤗

They will follow the money...right back to #Russia🇷🇺.

And Trump *cannot* stop them‼️🤣😂🤣

THREAD: the filings by Mueller and SDNY on Cohen are BIGLY bad news for @realDonaldTrump and his spawn, Don Jr, Kremlin🇷🇺Barbie, and Eric and *clearly* indicate that Trump is an UNINDICTED co-conspirator.

And then, there's the Manafort memo... 1/

#TrumpRussia
First, SDNY makes it clear that Cohen does *not* have a formal cooperation agreement **with them** (but stay tuned on this front later...). As such, SDNY asks the Court to a "substantial term of imprisonment."🤔 2/
SDNY *nails* Cohen for 4 federal felonies to which he pleaded GUILTY: tax evasion, making false statements to a bank, illegal campaign contributions, and making false statements to Congress. 3/

The police continue to raid #DeutcheBank for a 2nd straight day, including searches of the offices of *each of the TOP 8 executives*.

Deutsche was recently #busted for laundering cash for #Russians🇷🇺and is the only Western bank to lend to Trump.
bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
The police raids are targeting two suspects. One suspect works in the bank’s anti-financial crime unit. The other suspect works in the *private wealth unit*, where @realDonaldTrump’s real estate loans originated (NOT from Deutsche’s commercial loans group).🤨
One key question is whether #Deutsche’s loans to @realDonaldTrump (when NO other Western bank would loan to him) were backed by someone else who put up collateral👉🏼Trump’s loans bizarrely came from the *private wealth* unit, where Justice Kennedy’s son served as his banker.🧐

🔥THREAD: Michael Cohen's plea deal with Mueller is utterly damning for @realDonaldTrump and his spawn, Don Jr, Kremlin🇷🇺Barbie, and Eric.

Please follow along and RT some of the highlights of Cohen's plea deal (link to Cohen's plea deal: docs.google.com/viewerng/viewe…)

#TrumpRussia
🔥Cohen pleaded GUILTY for LYING to @HouseIntelComm and Senate Intel to "minimize the links between the Moscow Project (Trump Tower Moscow) and Individual 1 (@realDonaldTrump)" and give the FALSE impression that the project ended before the "Iowa caucus and...the first primary."
Cohen now admits that the #MoscowProject was discussed MULTIPLE times w/in @Trump Org – including with Trump and "family members" (Don Jr, Kremlin🇷🇺Barbie, Eric) – **as late as June 2016** when Trump was the presumptive @GOP nominee for president.

Mueller has emails between Roger Stone and Jerome Corsi proving that they *knew* in advance that Assange planned 2 dumps of Democratic emails stolen by #Russian🇷🇺intel, including an October surprise.

As did Randy Credico and Ted Malloch.😎

🔥On Aug 2, 2016, Corsi wrote Stone: "Word is friend in embassy (Assange) plans 2 more dumps. One shortly after I'm back. 2nd in Oct. Impact planned to be very damaging."

On July 25, 2016, Stone asked Corsi to contact #WikiLeaks about unreleased HACKED materials relevant to the campaign, writing: "Get to (Assange) [a]t Ecuadorian Embassy in London and get the pending (WikiLeaks) emails."🤨

Bannon and 2 other former senior campaign officials have detailed to Mueller how Stone "not only seemed to predict WikiLeaks’s actions, but that he also took credit afterward for the timing of its disclosures that damaged Clinton’s candidacy."

nytimes.com/2018/11/01/us/…
I suspect that the "two other former senior campaign officials," who provided similar accounts to Mueller, are Reince Priebus and Don McGahn👉🏼share the *same* criminal defense lawyer as Bannon.😉
One former campaign official told Mueller that Stone not only PREDICTED WikiLeaks’s actions, but also TOOK CREDIT afterward for the timing of its dumps that damaged Clinton.

Plus Stone's own tweets & video-recorded speeches BRAGGED about his contacts with Julian Assange.🙄

David Pecker (chair of National Enquirer publisher #AMI) & AMI's chief content officer, Dylan Howard, granted #immunity‼️

The *only* reason they got immunity is to BURY @realDonaldTrump for his role in Cohen’s hush-money payments to women.😎1/
vanityfair.com/news/2018/08/d…
“Holy s**t, I thought #Pecker would be the last one to turn,” ~Trump friend (Trump & Pecker have been close for years).

The Enquirer operated as a de-facto (= ILLEGAL) arm of the campaign, giving invaluable media support to Trump by attacking @GOP rivals & Hillary Clinton.🤬 2/

THREAD: Michael Cohen made a previously unreported $50,000 payment to an unknown tech company to help Trump's 2016 campaign.🤨

Was this $50,000 used to make "deniable cash payments" to hackers, as reported in the #SteeleDossier⁉️ 1/

cnbc.com/2018/08/22/mic…
Buried in Cohen's legal documents, prosecutors say Cohen paid $50,000 for work "solicited from a technology company during and in connection with the campaign."🔥

The campaign *never reported* the $50,000 expense, and Cohen was reimbursed by Trump Org.🤨

Both = ILLEGAL‼️2/
WHO the tech company is & WHAT they did are not provided.🤔

Cohen had bank records for other expenses, but only provided a HANDWRITTEN sum for the $50,000, suggesting that the money may not have been paid out via "traditional" financial channels (meaning: CASH pay-offs).🙄 3/

THREAD: Far from supporting Trump’s claim that election was “rigged” in favor of Clinton, DOJ's #IGReport found:

👉🏼No bias in the decision not to prosecute Clinton for using private email
👉🏼Comey was "insubordinate" w/his acts that HURT Clinton

Although the FBI and DOJ were in the unprecedented situation of investigating BOTH candidates **during** the election cycle (which no surprise, appears to have affected some actions by individuals), importantly, the outcome of the Clinton email probe was NOT affected.🤓 3/
