In May 2017 McCabe told the gang of Eight he had opened a counterintel investigation into Trump:


Flynn’s efforts to transfer sensitive nuclear tech to SA (unlawful), & SCO fear Trump still considering it.

The company backing the nuclear plan, IP3 International, and its allies in the White House were working so closely that the company sent a draft memo to the former national security adviser, Flynn, to circulate just days after the inauguration.

Flynn had worked on the plan for IP3 during the Trump campaign, transition & continued to advocate for it in the WH.

Even after Mr. Flynn was fired officials on the NSC pushed ahead ignoring advice from NSC’s ethics counsel to cease work on the plan.

There's actually serious geopolitical reason this "adoption" issue keeps coming up. @KremlinRussia Putin signed law banning adoption Russian orphans by #US citizens to retaliate for #Magnitsky Act by which Russians face sanction for human rights abuses 1/…
#US Congress adopted Magnitsky over @BarackObama admin objections. White House feared diplo retaliation. But Congress was dead-set on replacing cold war-era Jackson–Vanik amendment. Putin claimed in parallel that he was powerless to stop @dumagovru from imposing adoption ban 2/
Of course that wasn't true. But Russia loves tit-for-tat. Crimea justified by Kosovo. There's always a kernel of truth but it's also always more complicated. In this case, the adoption ban was outright cruel - harming children already suffering who had chance for better lives 3/

I want to explain my stance on Putin. I love Russian people. I enjoyed my time there. I enjoyed working with Mr Putin's office. I believed Russia was a nascent democracy on a hard road and that Mr Putin, despite his tactics would take Russia to a better place.
Since then his undermining of democratic processes in France, the USA, Sweden, Spain and the UK, his violent suppression of free speech and corruption of the type targeted by #Magnitsky has become common knowledge. However, I think Mr Putin poses a more significant threat.
In 2008 Russia military had been run down and underinvested. This led to the fact that the Georgian Russian war not going the way Putin planned. He was not able to easily achieve his strategic aims. VVP sensibly committed to improving both capabilities and readiness.

It seems awfully convenient that #MagnitskyAct guy (& probable #EdmondSafra murderer-hirer) @BillBrowder & many of his neocon playthings — like @LindseyGrahamSC — are trying to pin this on Crown Prince #MBS. I smell a shakedown. Bad thing for #HumanRights when only money matters.
… one thing that people don’t realize about #Magnitsky & the #MagnitskyAct is that there’s no more crucial hub of state-sanctioned money laundering than @TheJusticeDept’s @SDNYnews. That’s where Wall St. is (& all the #FININT collection that goes w/ it).
… it’s important to understand #Browder’s connections to the #London-based #HongKong #Shanghai Banking Company — #HSBC — a bank heavily dependent on Communist #China which functions as his private #laudromat. The #Khashoggi case takes the focus off them.

Turkey has concluded that Jamal #Khashoggi, a prominent journalist from Saudi Arabia, was killed in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul earlier this week by a 15-member Saudi team sent “specifically for the murder"…
"#Khashoggi visited the consulate to obtain documents related to his upcoming wedding.

The killing, if confirmed, would mark a stunning escalation of Saudi Arabia’s effort to silence dissent, rounding up clerics, business execs & women’s rights advocates"
"The initial assessment of the Turkish police is that Mr. #Khashoggi has been killed at the consulate of Saudi Arabia in Istanbul. We believe that the murder was premeditated and the body was subsequently moved out of the consulate."…

Butina certainly has many talents. Greenberg's political and business lean tilts heavily towards Russia. His Center for National Interest is the most Kremlin-friendly think-tank in DC. and guess what @traciemac_Bmore? The Center hosted Trump's Mayflower Speech on April 27 2016.
Yes, this significant Mayflower speech which was fundamental in establishing a working agreement between Trump's campaign and Russia. In attendance was a veritable who's who of suspicious Washington types with last names like Flynn, Kislyak and Sessions.…
A few days ago @WendySiegelman was able to find solid ties between Butina's #NRA operation and @DanaRohrabacher's #EndMagnitsky campaign. Could Butina possibly tie it all to The Mayflower via Greenberg?
