1. Trump is just days from being exposed as a fraud and a traitor. Yes you can commit treason without declared war. Just help someone attack the US and you're a traitor. It's why Trump calls others traitors. Always projection. He needs to blame them for discovering his crimes.
2. So what's Trump's endgame? It's more than likely he has none. He lies to his attorneys so he is working without a net. His attack on @SpeakerPelosi was predictable and exposed Trump's growing panic. I have reported since June 2016 that Russia financed the GOP
3. and Trump campaigns. I stand by that reporting. When the American people see the extent of their betrayals the @SenateGOP @HouseGOP may feel an urge to flee. Until then they are fascinating to watch. First and foremost @senatemajldr McConnell. The Kentucky gubernatorial

Hilo explicativo sobre comisión multidisciplinaria de agencias federales contra la #corrupción chavista y boliburguesa en #Venezuela.
El Comité de Asuntos Exteriores del Senado americano aprobó un proyecto de ley (VERDAD Act) para lidiar con el problema de @Venezuela. Esto, debe decirse, es un logro netamente chavista, x cuanto el desastre e impacto regional es tal, q Gob americano tiene q actuar.
No estamos hablando solamente de los más de 3,5 millones de venezolanos q se han ido y del costo y problemática q ello acarrea. #Venezuela bajo el chavismo es una amenaza en cuanto a tráfico de droga, terrorismo, trata de seres humanos, criminalidad organizada...

1. NB this stuff is by law secret. Ask Natalie Edwards: MT Deutsche Bank Staff Saw Suspicious Activity in Trump and Kushner Accounts nyti.ms/2Ht1Czs
2. Spot the issue on the NY times @DeutscheBankAG SAR report? Now @realDonaldTrump Kushners accounts are relevant to every state regulator that has Trump Kushner accounts and tax returns need to go to law enforcement, not to mention @RepRichardNeal and his committee. 😎
3. IMO not filing a SAR is not common. They're routine IMO. Not something for top managment. #FinCEN trained employees deal with it. If I had RICO case against Trump I would definitely name @DeutscheBankAG as a RICO person now.

1. @MSNBC @maddow @MaddowBlog IMO Berman has unrecused. He is on SDNY letter head signature block in Mueller related #FinCEN Natalie Edwards case. See letter on left. On the right is a page from the Edwards criminal complaint that shows that the case involves June 9, 2016 Trump. Page from the Natalie Sour Edwards original complaint.
2. Tower meeting and Russian money going to the GOP in 2016. You need competent trial lawyers to track these cases as if they were billing for them. Your legal people (@BarbMcQuade @Mimirocah1) are very smart but don't know the file. Berman is likely obstructing and should

1. Congress may not have the tools to defend us from a treasonous @WhiteHouse and treasonous @SenateGOP majority. When Trump and the @KremlinRussia_E stole the election, I knew then that to survive the states will have to act. That time has come. It must begin or we are doomed.
2. @NewYorkStateAG @AGBecerra can coordinate their efforts. NY can start bank and tax investigations against the @Trump family and @GOP RNC that have received Russian money. Here is some of the proof that I fear is being burred by #SDNY USA Berman who was supposed to recuse. Page from Natalie Sour Edward criminal complaint.

1. Trump Taxes: There's two basic types of commercial loans. Credit based & Asset Based. When you buy a home the bank insures both areas are covered. They check your credit ability to repay & make sure there's an equity cushion to protect them. That was the basis of our banking
2. industry and what went wrong leading to the mortgage/bank crisis.
But commercial loans are different. I don't want to shock folks but a lot of developers pay little or no income taxes. They build up tax attributes that in a structure like Trump where he is personally at risk

Development loans are often "non-recourse" meaning that the mortgage holders only get to foreclose on the collateral and don't have "recourse" to pursue borrower for a deficiency.

1. I spotted what might be actionable misconduct by Trump appointed US Attorney in #SDNY. It appears to me to be something that, at a minimum, should be referred to the Office of Special Counsel at the DOJ. @SenFeinstein @SenBlumenthal @SDNYnews @NewYorkStateAG @NewYorkFBI
2. You may recall Trump's pick and, as I recall, @RudyGiuliani former partner Geoffrey S. Berman recused from all Trump Russia matters.
Natalie Sour Edwards is #FINCEN employee alleged to have leaked SARS to @BuzzFeed and is clearly a case related to Trump Russia.
3. I didn't notice that when #SDNY filed the Information on Jan 30, 2019.

Berman signed it.

The defendant has Ben Brafman as her attorney. He is also Harvey Winestein's attorney. Kinda pricey for a govt employee don't you think? 😎 Signature page of Edwards Information with Berman's signature

May Edwards from #FinCEN pled not guilty & is on administrative leave - not sure if paid or unpaid admin leave. Not sure why CNN @eorden isn’t reporting the name of FinCEN May Edwards’ co-conspirator since @WSJ @aviswanatha already outed him. wsj.com/articles/treas….

1. When Trump Campaign team met with Russians on June 9, 2016 both Trump & GOP campaigns were struggling. Trump was broke. Then he flies to Scotland & the money flooded in. I reported that it was likely he was meeting with Russian money sources. IMO Mueller has them all. #FINCEN
2. Here's my June 23, 2016 post. I was watching and auditing his FEC reports. I knew he was broke. Attached to this thread is the report that FINCEN did spot his criminal conduct in June 2016.
3. And just to be sure my 2016 posts to the @FBI would get the right attention, I copied the Secret Service. Mueller has the logs. And IMO #GCHQ has the intercepts.

1. Keep an eye on this case. Natale Sour Edwards. She was the @USTreasury #FINCEN employee charged by the #SDNY, arrested in VA and arraigned in NY. She was leaking SARs related to Mueller's Manafort & Gates cases but also alleged to have leaked SARs related to Trump and Butina.
2, Here are the parts of her criminal complaint that caught my eye. The recent filings give the USA time to try to work a deal with her before January 4 when they need to indict. Okay, but why do I think you should you watch this case? page from Edwards complaint about Butinapage from Edwards complaint about Trump in 2016
3. Because Ms Edwards has Ben #Brafman as her attorney. Remember your Watergate history? It's in film"All the President's Men." Woodward sees powerhouse lawyers representing burglars. He know something's up. Call me suspicious. But this one is worth watching. @maddow @lawrence Ben Brafman

A reminder that @RepMaxineWaters & @FSCDems will be looking into the money laundering of Trump's favorite financial institution, #DeutscheBank

That's bad news for Trump... as recent developments underscore the need for #FinCEN independence from Trump. bloomberg.com/opinion/articl…
So the daughter of new Attorney General Bill Barr is now getting a job at... #FinCEN, which is as the rest of this thread shows, a central venue for assessing rump/Kushner/Manafort/etc money laundering. That's disturbing!!!! cnn.com/2019/02/13/pol…

Yesterday we learned about the arrest of a career #FinCEN employee. Her career supervisor at FinCEN was named as an unindicted co-conspirator. I worked w both of them briefly from 2015-16. If they did share SARs, I’m very sorry to hear that. The leaking of intel - including /1

Last week I tweeted that I thought @MichaelAvenatti scoop about Cohen shell companies came from a #FinCEN leak. I went on @allinwithchris the following night & discussed that the info could have come from #Fincen or perhaps the financial institutions. Tonight @RonanFarrow /1
Confirmed that the leader of the #SARS was from #FinCEN. I must admit when @RonanFarrow and I spoke this week, I was stunned about the possibility that someone could have removed SARS. I felt that there is no way this could happen short of work by a nefarious actor. But, I also/2
Would share that I am not worried whether Mueller’s team has the SARs. I’ve been tweeting since March 2017 that I believe that #FinCEN holds the key to #TrumpRussia, in part because the SARs are filed and the data collected long before Trump got elected. Which means that from /3

🔥WHOA🔥

The USG official leaked Cohen’s financial records b/c the official became “alarmed” after being unable to find 2 suspicious-activity reports on Cohen in a government database & worried the info was being withheld from law enforcement‼️ 1/

Two previous suspicious-activity reports (SARS) documented **even larger flows of questionable money** into Cohen’s account👉🏼>$3 million‼️ Which individuals or corporations remains a mystery.🤨 2/

The 2 SARS were *absent* from #FinCEN’s database: “I have never seen something pulled off the system. That system is a safeguard for the bank. It’s a stockpile of info. When something’s not there that should be, I immediately became concerned. That’s why I came forward.”😳 3/

Newly Uncovered Payments By Russian Embassy Are A Focus Of Mueller Probe: Sergey Kislyak received $120K ten days after the election of Trump. Bankers flagged it to US Gov't as suspicious because, marked as payroll, it didn’t fit prior pay patterns.

^ @benjaminwittes: "@a_cormier_ & @JasonLeopold took a lot of criticism for their earlier story on wire transfers to the Russian embassy...that story warranted more consideration than it was receiving. This followup emphasizes that."

^ Nov 14, 2017 piece referenced above: FBI scrutinizes more than 60 money transfers sent by the Russian Foreign Ministry to its embassies across the globe, bearing a note that said the money was to be used “to finance election campaign of 2016.”

This big story by @JasonLeopold and @a_courmier_ shows how #FinCEN uses it’s suspicious activity reports/SARs collected from financial institutions (like Citibank here) to track illicit financing and connect the dots for $ laundering. You can bet Mueller has it if he wants it.
Please excuse spelling errors. A few words about SARS - #FinCEN requires banks, financial institutions, wire transfer companies, money services businesses, jewelers, etc. to file reports documenting suspicious banking activities that they witness online or in person./2
So for example, if you normally make deposits at one rate and pace, and all of a sudden your accounts starts receiving deposits once a month for $300,000 from a non-employer, your bank may file that as a SAR with FinCEN. Or if a guy walks into a bank with $19,000 in cash, and /3
