The nomination of #Mishustin to be PM of #Russia likely represents an “all in, scorched Earth” move by #Putin to fight the #MagnitskyAct sanctions. Mishustin, along with Prosector General #YuryChaika, has been integral to the investigation of (1/3)…
… of alleged massive tax fraud (via #HSBC, the #HongKong #Shanghai Banking Corp.) by US citizenship-renouncer #BillBrowder.

With the opening of #NordStream2, we already see #Germany backing off the #Magnitsky narrative, with @SPIEGEL_English questioning key aspects (2/3)…
… of #BillBrowder’s shifting story (inc. the fundamental point that #Magnitsky was a lawyer & not an accountant).

The loser here is #HumanRights. The #MagnitskyAct is great, powerful legislation built on a questionable foundation. It should’ve been named after #LiuXiaobo. (3/3)

1/19 Voor het eerst in parlementaire geschiedenis importeert NL Amerikaanse wet: de #MagnitskyAct. Tweede Kamerleden noemen het een mensenrechtenwet, maar dat is het niet. Lees hieronder draadje over de zwendelaar die deze wet naar NL bracht, Bill Browder. Bizar verhaal. #HOAX
2/19 #MagnitskyAct die inmiddels door de Tweede Kamer is, is vernoemd naar een Russische accountant die om het leven kwam in een Russische cel, Sergei Magnitsky, en is zogenaamd bedoeld om overal ter wereld schenders van mensenrechten te kunnen straffen met sancties.
3/19 Werkgever van omgekomen Rus Magnitsky is Britse hedgefundmanager Bill Browder. Die beweert dat #Magnitsky is opgepakt en om het leven is gebracht omdat hij klokkenluider was. Hij zou op politiebureau aangifte hebben gedaan van belastingfraude door overheidsfunctionarissen.

We are hosting Olsi Jazexhi, @parlabest Rukiye Turdush and @cburton001 Charles Burton to speak about Canada's response to China's #Uyghur crisis.
@parlabest speaks about the plight of the Uyghurs and the grave human rights violations being committed by Chinese authorities. #Uyghur #Uighur
Chinese authorities say U.S. power is in decline and assume that they can persecute the Uyghurs without consequences. There is ample evidence of human rights violations. Internment camps, forces disappearances, eye witness accounts

(1/16/13 - 4/19/13) Manafort trial exhibits ref’g dates of contact between Manafort, Gates, et al and Dana Rohrabacher’s office. (Note: #MagnitskyAct passed 12/14/12).

1.) Stop & contemplating this for a second...While @SenSanders has hardly been 'Pro-Trump' he certainly HAS NOT led the #Resistance in opposition to the #TrumpCrimeFamily like @KamalaHarris or @SenWarren have. Matter of fact Bern's been rather absent from the #MSM ever
2.) Since conceding in the Primary in #Election2016...He was oddly silent during the flux of Democratic alarm ringers at the Brett Kavanaugh hearings, All but invisible during the #WhereAreTheChildren scandal letting other Senators like @SenJeffMerkley take the lead. His silence
3.) Regarding the #TrumpRussia Conspiracy has been deafening while on the reverse side, the words he has spoken in regards to #TrumpRussia , #Russians which were expressed in the way of his vote against the #MagnitskyAct & Against Sanctioning Iran & Russia. And now consider all

Hey, remember this #CA48 constituents? Here's Dana Rohrbacher meeting w/the anti- #MagnitskyAct filmmaker, and a man that is a corp espionage professional, who also met w/Donald Trump Jr on 6/9/16.

Did they discuss healthcare for Dana's constituents?

@ShannonBrooke01 @Billbrowder Here's one of those men (Akhmetshin), at Dana's inaugural ball, w/a woman who reps the interests of the Russian gov't. She met w/Donald Trump Jr 6/9/16.

Does meeting with and serving these people's interests, align w/the needs of constituents of #CA48?

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" washingtonpost.com/world/middle_e…
"#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." reuters.com/article/us-sau…

4 years ago tomorrow (July 17, 2014), Malaysia Airlines Flight #MH17 was shot down by the Russian 53rd Anti-Aircraft Missile Brigade, killing all 298 men, women and children aboard. #TreasonSummit #HelsinkiSummit
Not an auspicious beginning.
• Kremlin describes very different agenda than Trump
• Trump makes no mention of election interference in his opening remarks
• congratulates Russia on the World Cup – but not the winner, France

No puppet. #TreasonSummit interc.pt/2uoi9xI
Russia seconds #Trump’s tweet blaming U.S. for bad relations theintercept.com/2018/07/16/liv…

@ThomasS4217 1/ This <thread> provides a timeline for what appears to be a coordinated effort by the current WH to expand pool of children available for transnational adoptions, which began at the State dept.'s Consular Affairs office on Jan 27, 2017, and by DHS on Feb 2, 2017
#ZeroTolerance
@ThomasS4217 2/ Fueled by evangelical fervor for transnational adoptions (receipts downthread: indebted to @rkfatherlee), current WH Adm.'s goal is to remove detained minors from federal jurisdiction (HHS/ACF/ORR/UAC) as quickly as possible by transferring detained children to 1 of 17 states
@ThomasS4217 3/ Once detained children enter a state's foster care system, they are no longer the responsibility of the federal gov't (HHS/ACF/ORR/UAC), but instead those children's welfare is the responsibility of that particular state.
