Members of Congress sent @SecPompeo a letter requesting he brief them re #Assange, U.S. discussions with Ecuador about the #WikiLeaks founder's status, and details about visitors to the embassy, as well as #Manafort's discussions with Foreign Minister Valencia.
#WikiLeaks tweets are distorting what the letter says and what prompted it. The letter literally just asks for a briefing and says the situation should be resolved – something everyone agrees on, regardless of their view of #Assange.

It's not possible to comment intelligently on #Mueller & the entire #investigation without reading LICENSED TO LIE: Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice, self-funded and published in 2014 for the purpose of educating the public on the need for #CriminalJusticeReform
2. It crosses @GOP & @DNC administrations but has come to expose serious political abuses of #DOJ. It's made a lot of powerful people very angry.
The @FedSoc has not let me speak on topic since the book came out.
My own #BarAssociation @TexasBarCLE won't let me speak on it. WHY?
3. The book is TRUE, reads like a legal thriller but NAMES prosecutors who rose to positions of great power on the backs of people they wrongfully convicted.
It NAMES federal judges who turned a blind eye to egregious injustices.
No one has challenged a word of it, nor can they.

From the Mueller filing on Manafort
tinyurl.com/y7jzg9bb
Today, with #Manafort, we didn’t even get the equivalent of the Flynn “Appendix.”

The SCO asks for permission to file all the “factual material that relates to pending investigations or uncharged individuals” separately under seal.
Note that Donald J. Trump himself could be one of the "uncharged individuals"!

The Manafort filing has been released. It is largely redacted, which is interesting. Read the article..My takeaway from both filings today is that Mueller is closing in, but that he's far from finished. #FridayFeeling

The @Guardian’s Reputation In Tatters After Forger Revealed To Have Co-Authored #Assange Smear

"Regular followers of WikiLeaks-related news are at this point familiar with the multiple serious infractions of journalistic ethics by @lukeharding1968 and the #Guardian, especially (though not exclusively) when it comes to Julian #Assange and #WikiLeaks."
"However, another individual at the heart of this matter is far less familiar to the public. That man is @VillaFernando_, a prominent Ecuadorian political activist and journalist, director of the USAID-funded NGO Fundamedios and editor of online publication FocusEcuador."

1. visto che è successo ieri? Una settimana fa una giornalista top del #Guardian,non una qualsiasi, quella che ha rivelato scandalo #CambridgeAnalytica,twitta una foto di personaggi legati alla presunta operazione di influenza da parte dei russi su elezioni2016 USA
2. la foto mostra 2personaggi del presunto "complotto" #Russia-#Trump che si incontrano a Londra. La giornalista #Guardian twitta: "plot tickens"(la trama s'infittisce) e scrive che il posto in cui si sono incontrati è la scalinata dell'ambasciata dell'Ecuador a Londra
3. anche un orbo riconoscerebbe che la scalinata indicata dalla giornalista del #Guardian NON è affatto quella dell'ambasciata dell'Ecuador a Londra: che è facilissima da riconoscere per il portone

#TheGuardian’s article seeks to deflect from the reality that the prosecution of #Assange will focus on @xychelsea-era releases and #Vault7, not the DNC or Podesta emails.

As noted previously by @DisobedientNews:

On timing: Assange legal representative Hanna Jonasson (@AssangeLegal) quickly noted that the smear was published just hours before the EDVA ruling:

Wow >> Manafort held secret talks with Assange in Ecuadorian embassy, including in March 2016. Months later, WikiLeaks dumped emails stolen by Russia to help Trump. theguardian.com/us-news/2018/n…
#BREAKING #Manafort met with #Wikileaks #Assange in 2016—just as he became Trump campaign manager. Manafort visit wasn't logged as is normal for embassy visitors. Secret meeting lasted 40 minutes. Source recalls he wore sandy chinos theguardian.com/us-news/2018/n…
theguardian.com/us-news/2018/n…
Trump hired known dirty operative Paul Manafort in March 2016. Manafort became Campaign Chair/Chief Strategist in May, Campaign Manager in June. By June M had met w/ Assange & Russians at Trump Tower about dirt. Trump loved Wikileaks dirt, joining a Russian conspiracy against US.

1. If Mueller sent out target letters to Trump insiders, then @RealDonaldTrump knows that indictments are coming. He looked absolutely fried in Paris. Not to cut him slack but he looked like somebody with Cholera.
2. #Manafort's plea required him to cooperate with "the Government and other law enforcement authorities identified by the Government." Fed R Crim P 6(e) authorizes #Mueller with #Rosenstein's permission to share his grand jury files with state prosecutors.
3. So I'll be shocked if by now there are not several indictments already handed down in state courts. Will also be shocked if, while @POTUS was traveling, Whitaker was not briefed on them & shared the secrets with Trump whose system is starting to react to the massive stress.

So why is @NYT printing this article that seems like an attempt to shut down the #RussianCollusion investigation. They are publishing an article sourced to Putin's Oligarch Oleg Deripaska, it aims to end the #MuellerInvestigation by threatening politicians nytimes.com/2018/11/04/wor…
This article is a transparent attempt to threaten or blackmail politicians of both parties into ending the #RussianCollusion investigation by exposing corruption & collusion in DC & London. It seems as though @NYT is transmitting Deripaska's ultimatum, if he goes down, so do they
@NYT is aiding Putin's Oligarch in an effort to escape justice & sanctions for his efforts to rig the #2016Election by threatening to expose a decade of politicians colluding with him before that election. He & his lobbyist Adam Waldman are even pointing fingers at Robert Mueller

THREAD! 1-A number of experts are saying the recent @nytimes @ScottShaneNYT @MarkMazzettiNYT BIG #Trump-#Russia piece is one of the best pieces of journalism in recent years, and IT SURE IS. I had three levels of reaction to this as someone who has closely analyzed this topic.
2-1st, I was OVERJOYED that 1 of the best newspapers FINALLY gave 2 of their best journalists go-ahead & space to cover the #Trump-#Russia the only way it can be properly understood: a deep-dive detailed look at big, overall picture over time. Our society is better off for it!
3-2nd, I was SUPER frustrated generally cuz, 2+ years after topic should've obvi been covered this way only @NYTimes among biggest outlets has done this. W/ smaller respected outlets. Even 1 year into it only @aminterest/@submergingmkt, @newrepublic/@craigunger had. Circa 0 since

#BREAKING SKYFALL...#Cohen l'ancien avocat"particulier" de #Trump, qui avait décidé de coopérer, a parlé durant des heures avec l'équipe #Mueller. On l'a questionné sur la collusion avec la #Russie. La durée des entretiens signifie qu'il a "balancé",sans aucun doute. #Gamechanger
2) Et de toute évidence, d'après les 1ères infos d'@abcnews #Cohen coopère contre #Trump sans rien avoir exigé en retour, comme le laissait entendre ses déclarations publiques depuis 6 mois, il se retourne contre son ancien patron, par dépit affectif ou amical.
3) #Cohen s'est aussi mis à table face aux procureurs de l'Etat de New York quant aux malversations de la fondation #Trump. Ne pas oublier que cette enquête-là est encore plus dangereuse car hors de portée du pouvoir de pardon présidentiel...

Which we have been screaming since 2016.

I did an entire thread to the Manafort - Devine connection.

It was recently revealed that Devine was sharing polling data with Manafort during the primary. They are all in this together & the media ignores it purposely.
@MaddowBlog why?
1/ After it was revealed on @maddow that Manafort/Russia was working as far back as 2012 to smear Hillary Clinton it made more sense.

Think about this. Who was going to primary against Pres Obama in 2012? Bernie Sanders
2/ Why didn't #Sanders follow through? My opinion based on the timeline of events & the extensive research I have done on #TadDevine, is that Sanders was told to hold off until 2016 by Devine. We know that Devine was working with #Manafort on the Ukraine election during this time

A friend asked me how I knew this in 2016, during the campaign, before the election, how did I know to raise red flags about #TrumpRussia #TrumpLies #TrumpCrimeSyndicate #PenceKnew #Manafort 1/
She went on: you’re busy, you’re just a normal civilian person, you run a small business, you’re focused on working, your family, how did you figure out and know what was wrong with Trump, Russia, the GOP, why the election was different? 2/
First, let’s acknowledge lots of people knew, too. I don’t just mean the intelligence community, or the co-conspirators and accomplices to treason and illegal activities, I mean lots of other regular people like me. There are some common qualities and habits we share 3/

Manafort flipped. This is the "statement of the offenses" in which Manafort confesses to doing the crimes...

assets.documentcloud.org/documents/4883…
This first count #Manafort admits to is violation of 18 USC § 371, "Conspiracy Against the United States."

What does that mean? He conspired to commit a crime against the US or to defraud the US:
A conspiracy, definitionally, requires more than one conspirator. Who did Manafort conspire with? The first paragraph dealing with Count 1 names Richard Gates and Konstantin Kilimnik "and others"
