THREAD: In summer 2016, George Nader (representing Saudi Arabia & UAE) and an Israeli specialist in "social media manipulation" offered to help **THROW THE ELECTION** in a meeting w/Trump Jr arranged by Erik Prince‼️ 1/

nytimes.com/2018/05/19/us/…
At the Aug'16 #treason meet, Nader told Jr the crown princes of #SaudiArabia & #UAE were "eager to help his father win." The Israeli social media expert's (Joel Zamel) firm had already drawn up a multimillion $ proposal for a social media manipulation effort to help Trump.🤨 2/
Zamel's social media company #Wikistrat, which employed several Israeli former intelligence officers, specialized in "collecting information & shaping opinion through social media."🤨

Gee, that sounds familiar‼️🤬 3/

When it rains it pours. ⛈️

Wednesday was an outrageously busy day in #TrumpRussia news & revelations, so we did our best to summarize for you.

This THREAD is formatted as:

🔹A) What happened?
🔹B) Why is it important?

In conclusion, we remind you what YOU can do to help.
1A) The Senate Judiciary Committee released all transcripts/documents (some redactions) from its investigation into Russian interference and potential Trump campaign coordination. judiciary.senate.gov/press/releases…
1B) The release of 1000s of pages casts light on the Trump Tower mtg, including coordination of stories by attendees, inconsistencies in Don Jr.'s testimony & hints of Trump's knowledge of the mtg & involvement in the false story Don Jr. initially put out. nytimes.com/2018/05/16/us/…

Must see TV.
.@ChuckGrassley: Public unaware of data collection practices, and the Cambridge Analytica Facebook scandal exposes these serious policy issues to confront. CA declared insolvency so cannot participate in this hearing. Says this conversation could've taken place in 2015 or earlier
.@ChuckGrassley: Runs thru the requisite whataboutism while decrying partisanship. Doesn't seem to be drawing attention to the internationalized (and militarized) distinction between CA/SCL and formerly domestic and civilian voter analytics industry, nor UK enforcement response.

Back at #SECU for the next round of votes on Bill #C59, in time to see the #NDP motion to give the Intelligence Commissioner powers to go beyond simply saying "yes" or "no" on authorizations be voted down. #cdnpoli
Next Liberal motion, also proposed by Greens, is to ask the #IC to publish decisions not only when rejecting an authorization, but also in approving it (something @ICLMG is in favour of). Passes.
NDP motion that would allow IC to ask for additional information, rather than saying "yes" or "no" to an authorization. Notes that the current #CSE commissioner suggested this amendment #C59 #secu

#ABTVtoStopBrexit isn't about affecting the balance of power or forcing a General Election. #ABTV is about sending a message to the Tories, and *especially* to Labour that people don't support *any* #Brexit. Not a #HardBrexit, #SoftBrexit, #NoDealBrexit, #Lexit, or *any* Brexit.
The Tory's control more than half of councils, nearly double Labour. Losing control of even half of them is unrealistic, and even if it happened under fixed term government I can all but guarantee it won't result in a General Election.
A Prime Minister calls a GE under two circumstances:
1) They are miles ahead in the polls and think they can increase their majority (as in 2017)
2) They have suffered a humiliating defeat or scandal.

To those who believe we should roll over and "accept" the ref/vote... Do you know how democracy works? #ABTV #FBPE #BrexitIsPersonal
It's a PROCESS. Not an end product. You don't do it just the once. Remainers/leavers who insist we should respect the vote are either not aware of the threat democracy is currently under or they don't understand the concept of democracy.
"You don't get to keep voting until you get what you want". Well actually that IS kinda the point. You want your vote to count. And you want your values and policies to be realised.

Most Brits have been sleeping. But Sunday they’ll wake up to @carolecadwalla’s receipt. The Bad Boys of Brexit will have to explain why they lied about Americans unlawfully paying for illicit data. No wonder they didn’t disclose it! #CambridgeAnalytica theguardian.com/politics/2018/…
So if Steve Bannon, Rebekah Mercer, and Alexander Nix cheated on the Brexit referendum you don’t think they would do the same thing in Ameri…wait what was in that email that Trey Gowdy showed to Bannon when they dragged him down to Congress? axios.com/steve-bannon-c…
Watch it again. Now that the #BrexitCheatReceipt by @carolecadwalla is public.

Conservative Trey Gowdy.

Russia probe. 3 reasons. No dossier.

Trump Tower meeting.

PAPADAPOLOUS.

allez, c’est parti pour la suite du #Zuckhearing devant le congrès. pour le style, on verse toujours dans la fanfic live report différé, en français.
nouveau thread pour l’occasion, histoire que vous n’ayez pas 400 tweets à dérouler. (je pense notamment à ceux qui ont des apps de merde android.) vous pouvez retrouver la première partie de l’histoire, devant le sénat, ici :
j’ai 4.1k mots et 24.5k signes à publier : comptez donc une grosse centaine de tweets (ça paraît beaucoup, mais en vrai c’est un peu moins que ce que poste @Pipomantis en une journée ー je dis pas ça à l’arrache je l’avais mesuré avec l’api twitter back in 2013.)

Parscale distances himself from #CambridgeAnalytica today, per the article above. But immediately after the election, he was on TV using their terminology (echoed by Theresa Hong on BBC) while describing their success.
