JUST IN: @ODNIgov Dir John Ratcliffe releases declassified Annex A of the Intelligence Community's 2016 assessment on #Russia meddling in #Election2016 "with minimal redactions"

This follows requests from senators @ChuckGrassley & @RonJohnsonWI
Per Annex A of the 2016 Intelligence Community Assessment on #Russia|n election meddling, intel officials had "only limited corroboration of the source's reporting...and did not use it to reach the analytic conclusions of the CIA/FBI/NSA assessment"
Annex A also notes that Steele "is an executive of a private business intelligence firm and a former employee of a friendly foreign intelligence service" and that he has been "compensated for previous reporting over the part three years"

THREAD: @JoeBiden & The #ElectoralCollege: There are 2 basic factors of electability nearly every major Democrat candidate in 2020 could reach: 1. Win the national popular vote and 2. Win back Michigan, Wisconsin & Pennsylvania. The easiest & barest levels of electability. But...
2/Suppose we are overestimating the #Resistance to Donald Trump in 2020? Suppose just one of the key 3 states in 2016 put Trump over the top in 2020? Which candidate could get to 270 electoral votes a different way? Who is best positioned to win in Florida? In Arizona? In North..
3/Carolina? In Ohio? It's those bigger thresholds that make @JoeBiden the best positioned to beat Trump. Two groups give Biden a unique electoral advantage. First, an incredible strength among older voters. Of the top 10 oldest states as of 2018, 3 are crucial swing states:

#BrianKemp bleached the rolls whiter than white, removing over half a million voters from the rolls in #Georgia before the 2018 gubernatorial race against #StaceyAbrams — who was the first African American woman to run for Governor in the U.S. blavity.com/gov-brian-kemp…
But Kemp's racist vote-purging tricks go way beyond Georgia. He worked with #KrisKobach, Trump's Vote-Thief-in-Chief, who used the #InterstateCrosscheck voter purge list generated by Kemp in Georgia to target voters of color in 30 states. gregpalast.com/kemp-loses-vot…
That's what flipped #Michigan to Trump and helped steal the presidency in 2016. And it'll happen again in 2020, unless we're able to expose and stop the GOP's election-stealing tricks. rollingstone.com/politics/polit…

USA Today reports on #Ohio's voter purges noting that:

1. The young were disproportionately purged: Nearly 1 out of 3 purged voters was age 25 to 34. usatoday.com/in-depth/news/…
2. Where a party preference could be determined based on the last partisan primary in which the voter cast a ballot, Democrats outnumbered Republicans almost 2 to 1. usatoday.com/in-depth/news/…
Our experts have been screaming that the big purge attacks young voters — i.e. Democrats. The excuse is that they’ve moved out of #Ohio. They haven’t. They are students and renters who moved to a new dorm or down the street. rollingstone.com/politics/polit…

Trump's going to steal the 2020 election. It doesn't matter how good the Dem's campaign is or how much they spend on ads. Clinton outspent Trump by almost a $1 billion in 2016, but Trump is in the White House because we have an apartheid voting system. gregpalast.com/how-trumps-goi…
#Georgia's ground zero for vote theft. You think of it as a Republican state, but it's going to be the first Deep South white minority state. So the Dems can't lose — unless the GOP steals it from them! gregpalast.com/how-trumps-goi…
There aren't enough white people to elect Donald Trump in states like Georgia. That's WHY the Republicans have stepped up their vote thieving games, which could absolutely reelect Trump — no matter the will of the people. thelondoneconomic.com/opinion/donald…

We have databases with absolute proof that this purge is racist and illegal. @StaceyAbrams is covering the cost of our experts in #Georgia, where her organization, @FairFightAction is taking legal action using our evidence. news.yahoo.com/georgia-moving… #VanishingVoters
@staceyabrams @fairfightaction However, in #Wisconsin, a court decision is forcing a similar mass racist purge of 234,000 voters. It can be reversed. We are prepared to team up with WI Lieutenant Governor Mandela Barnes. courthousenews.com/wisconsin-elec… #VanishingVoters

In 2018, #StaceyAbrams lost by around 40,000 votes to #BrianKemp in the election for governor of #Georgia. Kemp was Secretary of State at the time and he quietly removed over half a million voters from the voter rolls. lawandcrime.com/civil-rights/s…
I sued #BrianKemp to get the names of the voters he'd #purged from the rolls. Turns out they were removed because they supposedly moved. But we found out that at least 340,134 had never, ever moved from their registration address, yet they lost their vote. gregpalast.com/georgias-brian…
We hired the top specialist in Address List Hygiene—a fancy term for people who track where every American lives. We looked at people who paid property tax in Atlanta, paid income tax in Georgia, people who were getting pizza deliveries on the morning of the election—in Georgia.

I don't trust polls, they're not that accurate if they are before an election because the pollsters have to figure out if you're going to vote or not. The polls that really count are the #ExitPolls—and in #Wisconsin, #Pennsylvania & #Michigan, #HillaryClinton won the exit polls.
So what happened in #Wisconsin if you had a 4% victory in the #ExitPolls? How did Trump win? The answer is, you tell an exit pollster how you voted, but you don't know if your vote was counted. gregpalast.com/election-stole…
You don't know if the machine kicked out your vote. You don't know that if you filled out a #ProvisionalBallot and it was disqualified.

We get asked A LOT about the #Recount in #Michigan. What happened? Why were the DNC's lawyers MIA? Why did Clinton give up without a fight.

This report from 2016, written by a volunteer observer with #RecountMichigan, is well worth a read: medium.com/@nick_sharp/wh…
This account tallies with what we heard from witnesses we interviewed for a report we did for @DemocracyNow: democracynow.org/2016/12/13/gre… #Michigan #Detroit #Flint #Election2016 #VoterSuppression #ElectionFraud #VotingRights #CivilRights #Recount #Recount2016
@democracynow The DNC and Clinton’s lawyers were literally missing in action. They did not protect the Black voters’ ballots of #Michigan. Trump’s lawyers prevented the counting of the 75,355 uncounted ballots that would have unquestionably led to loss of a state he "won" by 10,700 votes.

The Russians did not remove 1.1 million voters under this phony, racist system called #Crosscheck. The Russians did not fail to count 75,355 ballots in Detroit, MI, handing that state to #Trump. The Russians did not illegally purge a third of a million voters in Georgia...
Whatever the Russians did... that’s illegal, that’s bad. But that was not what elected Donald Trump. What elected Donald Trump was a massive, racist vote purge system and a system of blocking people from voting with gimmicks like ‘Where’s your Voter ID?’ therealnews.com/stories/corpor…

@aaronjmate @TYT @MotherJones @theintercept @democracynow But Aaron, there is a price to pay for pushing fiction, rather than facts: And that is that most of these (fake-) news outlets lost all or at least a lot of credibility and what is #journalism without credibilty?
#TrumpRussia
@aaronjmate @TYT @MotherJones @theintercept @democracynow 2. I recall a time when #CNN was "first for breaking news", the go-to channel when big news broke (from the passing of Princess Diana to 9/11), since #Election2016 many rightly called it "The Clinton News Network" & I hardly tune in.
#TrumpRussia #Media
@aaronjmate @TYT @MotherJones @theintercept @democracynow 3. Many great papers made the same mistake: The #NewYorkTimes, with 127 Pulitzer Prizes, suddenly allowed opinion pieces to be written by conspiracy nut #LouiseMensch. You can damage your good reputation with just one lousy piece.

"It never ends," says @POTUS on @FoxBusiness, reacting to news of special counsel Mueller to testify before House committees on July 17. "You had crime on the other side."
"It's probably the biggest political scandal in history," adds @POTUS of the "spying" on his #Election2016 campaign.
"We had a deal" with #China "that was really close to being done," says @POTUS, on the phone with @MariaBartiromo. "We're open, but China's not open."

2. According to maps from VR Systems website provided to me by excellent #ElectionSecurity researcher & co-founder of the Florida Fair Elections Coalition #SusanPynchon. Washington County used VR Systems for voter registration databases, website services & election mngmt systems.
3. #NY state is about to approve vendors for epoll books (electronic voter registration databases that are connected to the internet.) Because of the rush to get ready for #EarlyVoting in #NY the epoll books are scheduled to be approved today without even a public comment period

1) This thread is about an occurrence during the #TrumpRussia #SpecialCounsel investigation that, even though not popularly recognized, represents a major contradiction within the final #MuellerReport.
2) That occurrence is the failed redaction of #PaulManafort's legal team's release of their #SentencingMemorandum.
3) First, the #SpecialCounsel released their #SentencingMemorandum for the #PaulManafort trial.

That #SentencingMemorandum contained redactions that hid facts from the Manafort investigation from the Public, and Congress.

#JoeBiden #BernieSanders

Are the Democrats repeating #Election2016?

I downloaded 1000 tweets about Biden and Sanders, and performed Data Science analysis. Here are the results:
Here are the most popular hashtags associated with Joseph Biden on Twitter.

Notice that Biden is the target of personal attacks, the same as Hillary Clinton in #Election2016.
Here are the most popular hashtags associated with Bernie Sanders on Twitter.

Notice that Sanders is once again classified as a Socialist scare, and directed at replacing Biden as the choice of voters.

Is there any indication of a possible Republican plot to go through the motions of investigating #TrumpRussia, & then concluding that a conspiracy didn't occur?

Let's examine possible evidence of this plot.
On 3/26/2018, (1 year before the #MuellerReport), after 1 year of investigation the then Republican lead House Intelligence Committee released their highly redacted report on #TrumpRussia, "Report on Russian Active Measures, March 22, 2018".

documentcloud.org/documents/4448…
The Republican members of #HouseIntel shattered their commitment, and rushed to end the investigation after only one year. The same as the Special Counsel investigation was ended prematurely by AG William Barr on 3/22/2019.
