THREAD:
To punish China we've taxed ourselves and bankrupted our farms.

To make us wealthier, we've cut food stamps and health care for the poorest among us.

To make us safer we've abandoned our allies, released hundreds of terrorists, and bombed our own bases.

1/
To afford to run the richest country on earth, we are borrowing a trillion dollars this year.

To lower unemployment, we've halved taxes on corporations and billionaires, and refuse to require a living wage.

2/
To fix immigration, we've closed the border, attempted to stop accepting asylum claims, and shut down our own government three times.

To prevent foreign interference in our elections, we've made diplomacy contingent on foreign interference in our elections.

Too bad @PhillyVotes chose ES&S’s ExpressVote XL Ballot Marking Devices (BMDs) after receiving donations from ES&S lobbyists. Per @philipbstark, who invented Risk Limiting Audits (RLAs), BMDs cannot provide the basis for a meaningful RLA. @PAStateDept @ChrisDeluzio #corruption 1/

Mick Mulvaney announces that the next G20 will be at a resort that Trump still owns and profits from in Doral, Florida. #grifting
Mulvaney goes on to provide an infomercial for Trump's Doral resort. #corruption
MULVANEY: "Again, anticipating your questions, how is this this is not emolument violation? Will the president profit from this? The president pretty much made it very clear since he got here, he doesn't profit from being here. He has no interest in profiting from being here."

.@amyklobuchar knows that vendors have re-defined “paper ballots” (w/o the “hand marked” prefix) to include hackable machine-marked printouts (often w/ barcodes) from controversial & risky Ballot Marking Devices. Klobuchar blew it by failing 2 specify HAND MARKED paper ballots.1/
Ballot marking devices should be purchased only for voters who are unable to hand mark and who choose to do so despite the hacking risk. Thanks. 2/

🚨BREAKING: @RudyGiuliani is in a world of hurt. Federal prosecutors are probing Rudy’s business dealings in #Ukraine, including his finances, meetings and work for a city mayor, and have examined his bank records.😎

👋🏼Bye, Rudy.

🔥Witnesses have been questioned by investigators about Rudy *since at least August*, who also are probing Rudy's role in an alleged #conspiracy involving his 2 #Ukrainegate henchmen, who were charged with funneling ILLEGAL #Russian🇷🇺money into Trump and @GOP coffers.🤬
The #MuellerReport—released publicly in mid-April—noted that 14 criminal cases were farmed out to other DOJ groups.

12 of these 14 cases were redacted (only Cohen and Greg Craig were disclosed).

Was Rudy one of the 12 REDACTED cases?🤔

🚨BREAKING: Gordon Sondland intends to testify that the text he wrote denying a quid pro quo with #Ukraine was relayed to him directly by @realDonaldTrump in a call: “It’s only true that the president said it, not that it was the truth.”🔥

#Ukrainegate
washingtonpost.com/world/national…
After acting ambassador to #Ukraine Bill Taylor texted Sondland/ “I think it’s crazy to withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign,” Sondland called @realDonaldTrump, who told Sondland he didn’t “want a quid pro quo…didn’t want anything from #Ukraine.”🔥
Sondland appears to be throwing TRUMP under the bus, basically saying that he took Trump at his word that there wasn’t a quid pro quo with #Ukraine.🧐

A properly functioning gov't engages in diplomatic relations w/ foreign gov'ts. Diplomacy is handled thru the US State Dept. using ambassadors who follow standard procedures. By turning to #Giuliani & his goons, #Trump privatized US diplomacy for his profit. That is #corruption.
Another way of putting it is that Trump made the benefits of US foreign policy accessible through pay-for-play. That is an abuse of power, which is a high crime and an impeachable offense.
Republicans rightly condemned Sec. of State Clinton for making US foreign-policy benefits available to nations like Saudi Arabia after they made generous donations to the Clinton Foundation. That was pay for play. Both Trump & Hillary are guilty of it & both deserve condemnation.

🚨Former ambassador to #Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch said she was forced out on “the next plane” as a “direct result” of pressure @realDonaldTrump placed on @StateDept, due to false accusations made by @RudyGiuliani.

#Ukrainegate #Corruption #ImpeachTrump
washingtonpost.com/national-secur…
Yovanovitch was “incredulous” that State decided to remove her based on “unfounded and false claims by people with clearly questionable motives,” adding that Rudy’s #Ukrainegate henchmen’s “personal financial ambitions were stymied by our anti-#corruption policy in #Ukraine.”🤬
Trump and cronies never understood that the vast majority of State’s civil servants are patriots who serve our country, NOT any political party.

HUGE thanks to Ambassador Yovanovitch for her dedicated service and courage in speaking TRUTH to power.🇺🇸💙💖

🚨@HouseDemocrats slap Energy @SecretaryPerry with a #subpoena for #Urkainegate documents.

Perry worked with Rudy to install new management at #Ukraine’s state-run gas company, aiming to steer lucrative contracts to companies controlled by Trump allies.🤬
cnbc.com/2019/10/10/ric…
@HouseDemocrats @SecretaryPerry 🔥Perry worked closely with Rudy and his #Ukrainegate Soviet-born henchmen (just arrested) to change the management of #Naftogaz (Ukraine state-run gas go) to people who'd steer profitable contracts to @realDonaldTrump's cronies.

Total #corruption.🤬

@HouseDemocrats @SecretaryPerry @realDonaldTrump Rudy's #Ukrainegate henchmen told people in #Ukraine that then-US Ambassador to #Ukraine (not a Trump patsy) would be replaced **MONTHS BEFORE** she was removed by Team🇷🇺Trump, presumably by @SecPompeo.

WHO TOLD THEM? Rudy? Perry⁉️

I save the #Mexico #corruption stories for the ones that matter.

So, here's one that matters, you probably haven't heard. Mexican Supreme Court Justice Eduardo Medina Mora, caught up in the President's anti-corruption sweep..looks like money laundering.
reuters.com/article/us-mex…
Here's a quote from the article about the Mexican President's anti-corruption campaign:

"Lopez Obrador, a veteran leftist who unseated Pena Nieto’s decades-ruling (PRI) when he took office in December, has vowed to root out Mexico’s entrenched corruption, starting from the top."
If you have been following my social media posts, you know by now that I'm "tentative" on Lopez Obrador "AMLO" (his nickname). Seems like he's doing a lot to clean up corruption with arrests that former Mexican Presidents haven't dared to do.

But, who knows. Time will tell.

🚨BREAKING: @realDonaldTrump pressed Rex Tillerson to help persuade DOJ to drop a criminal case against Rudy Giuliani's client, Iranian-Turk Reza Zarrab, charged w/evading US #sanctions against #Iran.

Rexxon refused b/c it was ILLEGAL & Zarrab cut a deal.
bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
@realDonaldTrump Zarrab cut a deal and testified that a Turkish state-owned bank laundered BILLIONS for #Iran, helping them evade #sanctions, and Erdogan knew of and supported laundering cash for #Iran.🤬

Turkey has so far managed to avoid US penalties over the sanctions-evasion scheme.🙄
@realDonaldTrump More LIES and projection by Trump, who falsely accused @BarackObama of being "soft" on #Iran, yet Trump has schemed to give #Turkey (and his pal Erdogan) a pass for helping #Iran launder BILLIONS, in direct violation of #sanctions.

Total #corruption.🤬

🔥WHOA🔥

Associates of @realDonaldTrump and Rudy Giuliani tried to install new management at the top of #Ukraine’s state gas company with the goal of steering lucrative contracts to companies controlled by Trump allies.🤬

#Ukrainegate #Corruption
apnews.com/d7440cffba4940…
The plan hit a snag with the election of #Ukraine’s new president (Zelenskiy) whom Trump called in #Ukrainegate.

@SecretaryPerry soon took up the effort with Zelenskiy to install new management at the gas company (including installing one of Perry’s past political donors).🤬
⁉️WHAT⁉️

The Trump/Giuliani allies attempting to change the management at Naftogazt appear had inside knowledge of the US government’s plans in #Ukraine. They told people that Trump would replace the US ambassador to #Ukraine MONTHS before she was actually recalled to DC.🔥

Former US @SpecRepUkraine #KurtVolker provided testimony to the #HouseIntelligenceCommittee on Oct 3.

He contradicted several of the claims of the #WhistleblowerComplaint at the center of the Democrat's #ImpeachmentInquiry of President Trump. (Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/ukraine-envoys…
Volker told lawmakers he did not partake in urging #Ukraine to investigate @JoeBiden.

The testimony directly contradicted a hearsay claim in the anonymous #WhistleblowersComplaint suggesting that #Volker and the @USAmbEU, #GordonSondland engaged with Ukrainian officials to…
…help them handle Trump’s request to investigate #Biden.

“[At] no time was I aware of or took part in an effort to urge Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Biden,” Volker said. scribd.com/document/42877…

<<THREAD>> . Trump spun his corrupt "missiles for dirt" deal as a corruption test for Ukraine's new administration, according to the newly released text messages. The spin didn't work on Trump's acting ambassador to Ukraine, Bill Taylor. /1 #corruption #FridayMotivation
Trump and his envoys framed their demand as an investigation into Ukrainian involvement in the 2016 U.S. elections, a reference to Bill Barr's 'origins' probe and not the real 2016 corruption: a Russian-engineered interference campaign to benefit Trump. /2 #Ukrainegate #Corrupt
Giuliani has made millions of dollars lobbying on behalf of Ukrainians and couldn't even clear security to become Trump's secretary of state, yet he was still dictating terms to U.S. state department officials. /3 #corrupt #UkraineAffair

Where are the #arrests?

I know a lot of people are pissed off that they're not seeing mass arrests after all the #proof that has been uncovered

I understand, trust me. I want to end the #DeepState as bad as anyone

Why should I #TrustThePlan? 🤔

I'll explain ☟
First I will get into the 'WHY', then I'll explain the timeline.

The Why:
I want what everyone wants, mass arrests around the #world, the entire #DeepState, gone.

The thing you have to ask yourself is, what will the outcome be? For every action, there is a reaction.☟
What would happen if Obama was arrested tomorrow? Civil unrest/war. #MSM has people lost in a #FalseReality, they will fight because they have been trained to think it's the right thing to do.

Things are slow played for three reasons. One, to do everything by the book. Two,...☟
