France today published its views on how international law applies in cyberspace. It is a substantial document, containing many important points (and some disagreements with the #TallinnManual 2.0). Below a short thread abt France's view on peacetime int'l law in cyberspace.
/2 France subscribes to the view that sovereigtny is a rule (rather than a mere principle) cyberattacks can violate a State's sovereignty.
/3 Every (!) cyberattack against French computer systems as well as any production of effects on French territory constitute a violation of sovereignty. Note that physical effects are not required. Any penetration of French networks is automatically a violation of sovereignty.

@blakesmustache I respectfully disagree. 2017: Mueller Subpoenas Deutsche Bank Records Related to Trump
The subpoena concerns documents and data related to people or entities affiliated with the President
Thus was likely farmed out to SDNY &/or EDVA (counterintel)
wsj.com/amp/articles/t…
@blakesmustache It’s related to the Troika laundromat/ Daske Bank/DB/ Bank of Cyprus/FBME/ SwedeBsnk (SohoMoscow) etc Ergo the larger TOC international money flows.

🧵4.1 THREAD—Why Did Jeffrey Epstein Get Such a Lenient Sentence?

*⃣ Part 4—Robert Maxwell & the KGB Coup

Since I posted the last part of this series, Jeffrey Epstein died on August 10, 2019, less than 3 wks after he reportedly told his lawyers that someone tried to kill him.
4.2 Robert Maxwell was the father of Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein's longtime companion and alleged "madam."

It has been widely reported that Robert Maxwell was working for Mossad—Israel's equivalent of the CIA.
4.3 Robert Maxwell played an integral part in at least three major international events.

In August of 1991, a group of hard-line members of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union tried to overthrow the government from Mikhail Gorbachev.

W Liberal Democracy vs Transnational Organized Crime

Why the Far R populists hate Soros:

Soros spent billions funding orgs & initiatives devoted to promoting liberal Dem’y, indep’t media, good gov’t, transparency, & pluralism across RU & E EU post Berlin Wall.
💣WLDvsTOC2💣

GOP & the RW media machine parrot Putin & his populist dictator (TOC) cronies’ anti - Soros propaganda, & are in lock step pushing anti Immigrant, racist, xenophobic, misogynist, rich v poor narratives to outrage, incite conflict & exacerbate divisions.
💣WLDvsTOC3💣

Remember Putin & his TOC Dictator pals & Drug Cartels caused the mass migrations via wars & violence.

RU/TOC funds terrorist orgs such as ISIS

Mass migration was intentional- meant to destabilize WLD while TOC pushed anti immigrant false narratives = conflict.

🐀Engel🐀

📌On June 8th, Steve Engel head of the OLC at the DOJ, invited Barr to lunch after he rec’d Barr’s unsolicited memo criticizing the Mueller probe.

📌Did the WH decision to hire Barr influenced by private chats he had about his legal views on Mueller’s investigation?
🐀Engel2🐀.

📌Steve Engel served on the Trump campaign transition team and is a Kav pal.

📌McCain was the sole GOP senator to vote against confirming Engel to lead the DOJ’s OLC citing his role in the controversial torture memos under the GWB adm.

Mueller’s Team is seething as their findings are far more damaging for Trump than Barr revealed.

SCO had prepared their own summaries of their findings that Barr willfully suppressed & instead substituted his own far more flattering summation in the 4 page letter.
💣CoverUp2💣

The normally silent OSC clearly felt Barr mischaracterized their findings to the extent they felt the need to send a warning shot across the bow.

Why did Barr mischaracterized OSC’s findings?

Manipulate the narrative?

Suppress the truth to the American public?
💣CoverUp3💣

📌The SCO’s investigators had already written multiple summaries of the report, and some believe Barr should have included more of their material in the 4-page letter

Fa dies que parlem molt del Consell per la República @CatalanCouncil @catalan_gov i no gaire de la #RepúblicaDigital o #eRepública, oi? A aquestes alçades tothom hauria de tenir clar que la principal arma del Consell és precisament la República Digital!!

Obrim fil 👇🏻
Com creieu sino que el Consell establirà un nou sistema de governança 2.0 pels catalans? Res d’eleccions cada 4 anys, passarem a un sistema de votació continuada, periòdica, molt més propera a propostes de la gent i que realment empoderi els ciutadans i els faci partíceps.
És evident que no volem construir una Espanya petita ni volem clonar el model d’Estat Espanyol... només faltaria! El que volem és fer un nou país, més modern, més avançat, més integrador, més democràtic, més adaptat als nous temps. Potser també una mica més digital, no?
