@sarahkendzior's book "Hiding in Plain Sight" is a revelation, even for followers of the current disaster.
She stitches together the long sordid history of @realDonaldTrump's criminal activity, the #GOP's happy play-along strategy, and the crumbling edifices of democracy.
She pulls in all the sordid actors, from #Putin to the #Saudis to #Manafort and #Stone. She understand their sick game--selling off the country for money and power...and the sadistic pleasure of watching people suffer.

💰💦Grenell, Plahotniuc, Firtash & more.

In 2016, Grenell embarked on a smear campaign against a Moldovan prosecutor who was cooperating with an inv’n of large-scale 💰💦 op.

Grenell worked on behalf of a Moldovan political party & its oligarch leader.…
Gofman’s story — and how he came to be targeted by Grenell — is something out of a spy novel, w/ the longtime prosecutor fleeing Moldova in a borrowed car to share details about the allegedly corrupt dealings by the leadership of his country with the FBI.…
In 2014, Gofman was a deputy chief in the country’s Office of Prevention and Control of Money Laundering. 

📌His unit began to uncover details of a massive bank fraud and money laundering operation involving the country’s leadership…

‼️The Firtash Connection

Franklin Foer brilliantly summarizes the Firtash assisted #UkraineGate plot to smear Joe Biden in exchange for dropping his extradition to the US together with TeamTrump’s efforts to attempt a coup at Naftogaz on his behalf.…
Per Parnas: Giuliani’s team had a deal with Firtash.

Giulani would get the DOJ to drop its attempt to extradite the oligarch on bribery charges.

In return, Firtash promised to pass along evidence that would supposedly discredit both Biden & Mueller.…
Firtash apparently paid Parnas $1 million for his services, though it’s still not totally clear what those services were.)

🔑The apparent centrality of Firtash should inform any assessment of Giuliani’s escapades and the entire Ukraine story.…

Trump Deleted Tweet Comms
-c +!
Minus see👀 Plus !!! #SPACEFORCE -A new branch of the military should be the story of the decade yet nobody is talking about it. Cause it'd be a great story for Trump! So Trump reflects: tho few noticed -this is HUGE!
Another part of the comm is with the fix we shifted into 9am D.C. time. 9 is a cabbal flipping comm. The last Trump tweet comm also had it Symbolically we are moving into a new "time" as powerful parts of the cult are flipped. A new age! #Qanon #8kun
It was probably supposed to be at 9:19:19 for the inverted 666 (19 19 = One Nine at a time) but was 1 sec off. That's why they don't use seconds as the primary comm. Minutes are good as you have 1-60 numbers to work (unlike hours) with & easy to time

“There is such a range of conduct here that is inexplicable… Our final recommendation was to refer the entire chain of command,” #IGHorowitz said. (Thread👇)

News Analysis🔎by Jeff Carlson @themarketswork…
The newly released #IGReport noted the material failures of the @FBI—“not only the operational team, but also of the managers and supervisors, including senior officials, in the chain of command”—with regard to the #FISA warrant application on Trump campaign aide @CarterWPage.
#IGHorowitz’s findings were so significant that he recommended the @FBI’s “entire chain of command” outlined in his report to the #DOJ for “consideration of how to assess and address their performance failures.”…

The focus of the #IGReport was #FISAabuse the IG identified “at least 17 significant errors or omissions” in the #FISA warrant used to spy on @CarterWPage.

Although many media organizations are trying to focus on the IG’s finding that the @FBI was within its rights in opening the initial counterintelligence investigation, it should be noted that this was not the focus of the IG’s investigation.
However, Horowitz did note that he had material concerns about the @FBI’s legal ability to open an investigation into the campaign of a presidential candidate:

The #IGReport highlighted several different areas of misconduct and identified a number of errors.

"As part of the probe, federal prosecutors are examining a raft of other potential crimes, including foreign lobbying registration violations, destruction or alteration of documents, aiding and abetting federal crimes, and foreign contributions to U.S. candidates,..

💥NEW >> First Batch of #Mueller Memos, just published by @Buzzfeed:

(1) Manafort pushed the conspiracy theory that Ukraine—NOT Russia—hacked the DNC back in 2016

Trump camp's been pushing it since, figuring prominently in #impeachment inquiry.…
#Mueller Memos:

(2) Trump campaign kept secret that #Manafort continued to advise the Trump campaign up until days before the election

Bannon wrote Kushner Nov 5, 2016: "We have to avoid this guy like the plague…we can't let word get out that he is advising us"

Why would Bannon keep "plague" adviser #Manafort a secret? B/c of Manafort's deep ties to Russia. And he was a rotten liar about Trump's. Recall Paul's bumbling lie denying any financial relationship between Trump and Russian oligarchs.😅🥵#MuellerMemos

‘It’s like nothing we have come across before’: UK intel officials shaken by Trump adm’s requests for help w/ counter-impeachment inquiry

Barr is leading tinfoil hat conspiracy theory aimed at discrediting Mueller’s findings that Russia interfered in 2016 election

The real culprit, they allege, was Crowdstrike🙄

🔑Crowdstrike was hired to investigate the data breach DNC hack & was the first of MANY, including western intelligence agencies, to conclude that Russia’s military intelligence agency, the GRU, had carried it out.

TeamTrump believes Crowdstrike is based in UKR & its founder Dmitri Alperovitch is a Ukrainian who set up Putin in revenge for invading his homeland.🙄

But Alperovitch, in real life, is of RU extraction & is a US citizen whose family came to US in the Soviet era.

Impeachment Inquiry Is Legal, Judge Rules, Giving DEMs a Victory

Judge orders the DOJ to hand over secret GJ evidence from the Mueller inv’n to the HJC by 10/30.

The committee's need for disclosure of the materials "is greater than the need for continued secrecy.”


The silence is stunning.

No senator is saying:

📌Openly that Trump’s conduct is not impeachable.

📌The witnesses lack credibility.

📌It is perfectly appropriate for the president to use his powers to aid his campaign effort

Cummings remembered as 'fierce champion' & as a “fierce champion of truth, justice & kindness”

“Like the prophet, our Elijah could call down fire from heaven.

But he also prayed & worked for healing.

He weathered storms & earthquakes but never lost his faith.”

‼️OMFG folks!

Believe it or not, the Trump/Giuliani #BidenOp also serves as a Hail Mary pass to fight Firtash’s extradition.

There is also a huge connection to Rick Perry’s UKR LNG contract.

Why? Firtash owns 70% of UNR’s gas distribution.

📌The Firtash backstory
Trump: “The only reason I made the [7/25] call was because Rick asked me to.

📌Something about an LNG [liquified natural gas] plant.”

Trump added that ‘more of this will be coming out in the next few days’ — referring to Perry.”…
