THREAD: Important to note what is NOT in Bill Barr’s summary of the #MuellerReport, along with what is in it.

Barr says that Mueller uncovered 2 ways #Russia🇷🇺influenced the election:

☝🏼IRA’s disinformation/social media op
✌🏼GRU’s hacking/dissemination of Democratic emails
No surprise, Barr claims that Mueller says that Team🇷🇺Trump didn’t conspire DIRECTLY with IRA or GRU. But *no one* even alleged that they did.🙄


Note: Barr does NOT mention WikiLeaks/Assange (and why Roger Stone’s #indictment cross-references the GRU’s), Don Jr gleefully accepting campaign help from the #Russian🇷🇺government, @GOP platform change on #Ukraine, quid pro quo #sanctions-for-help deal.🤨

Rep Chris Smith (R-NJ) intro'd a bill to start taking on #China's political influence in the US.

I want to know why Confucius Institutes, NGOs, & Think Tanks funded by China aren't already required to register W/ #FARA?!

Confucius Institutes are in US colleges & universities.
China controls EVERY SINGLE ASPECT of everything in their Confucius Institutes in the United States. Speech, hiring, funding, staffing, and what programs are offered.
Confucius Institute instructors in the United States have to sign CONTRACTS pledging not to damage #China's reputationg/national interest.

They also BAN certain topics and speech from classrooms.

We have #Communism being taught at US colleges and universities.

Why are we still waiting for action,  @RepMeadows & @RepCummings? AG Barr? Huber?

Too busy focused on Fake Trump investigations...
Cl¡ntons acted as foreign agent for multiple countries, engaged in pay-for-play, brokered pharmaceuticals, $$$, uranium, etc. thru #ClintonFoundation in exchange for favors, and used CF as a personal "piggy bank."

$400M - $2.5B that may be subject to taxation & incorrectly used!
501c3 charity should take ≤ 15% in administrative costs & give 85% of money taken in to actual charity work. Only 40% of the money taken in by the CF went to charity work. 60% went to the Cl¡ntons & the CF in administrative costs. Money decreased when they had no influence!

Here's another very interesting happening 👇👇👇

The DOJ announced that it is creating a revamped unit to crack down on #FARA violations and they appointed former #Mueller/Special Counsel prosecutor Brandon Van Grack to oversee it.

They even mentioned #Skadden as a reason.
Yes, yes, I know it's CNN (Ughhh) but supposedly John Demers from DOJ spoke to them about this. Here is the source:…
And, of course, I forgot to add - #ButNothingsHappening

DOJ announced it will place a former Mueller prosecutor in charge of #FARA enforcement and shift "from treating FARA as an administrative obligation... to one that is increasingly an enforcement priority.” MY THOUGHTS IN THREAD:
The announcement is the prosecutorial equivalent of a ribbon cutting. DOJ has built its staff and signaled more aggression on FARA the past 18 months, but this is the grand opening of a new FARA enforcement era.
DOJ’s FARA Unit has been led by good and competent lawyers, but they (purposely) have not acted like traditional prosecutors and haven’t been perceived that way. Appointment of Van Grack—an accomplished prosecutor—is a bigger sea change than it might seem.

Mercury Public Affairs (former @GOP Rep. Vin Weber), Podesta Group (Democrat lobbyist Tony Podesta) and Skadden Arps (former Obama WH counsel Greg Craig) are under federal investigation in #SDNY for their #Ukraine work with Paul Manafort.🔥
Manafort hired Skadden to produce a smear of Yulia Tymoshenko (the opponent of Ukraine’s pro-#Russia🇷🇺leader), and hired Vin Weber’s and Podesta’s lobbying shops to push the false smear of Tymoshenko.

Manafort paid them MILLIONS via a bank in Cyprus.

NO ONE filed #FARA.🙄
Skadden now admits they were a FOREIGN AGENT for pro-#Russia🇷🇺leaders in #Ukraine and recently settled with DOJ and agreed to cooperate FULLY.

Gates (Manafort’s bagman) is cooperating, too.

Meaning: the Feds have receipts and witnesses.😎

1. On Cohen, I raised an alarm Trump - Russia poll rigging. I think the current #MAGA bot net that @twitter @TwitterSupport turns a blind eye to is a device to hold Trump polls that should fall through the floor. @FBISanFrancisco should bring down the bots that violate FARA.
2. Here are some of my posts on poll hacks. In Sept 2017 I saw things like the comical "Mother of all Rallies" and I could not square these actual demonstrations of Trump core support with the reported poll data.
3. In June 2018 I reported again what I believed was an easy hack of using RoboCalls to suppress poll participation by liberal leaning voters.

1/ Thread: In light of today’s @nytimes report that the #FBI in mid-May ‘17 began to investigate whether President Trump is a #Russian agent, look again at Special Counsel #Mueller’s Dec. 4 pre-sentencing Memorandum in the Michael #Flynn case.
2/ Mueller was appointed Special Counsel about a week after the FBI opened this investigation of Trump. Mueller was appointed to supervise it & other matters, both counter-intelligence & criminal, all related to Russia.
3/ One of the criminal matters was whether Flynn, in Jan. ’17 when he was National Security Adviser, lied to the FBI about recent conversations with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S.
