1/Last night we and other local leaders of @MomsDemandAction, @WAGV,@Momtivist, @fialosangeles spoke with @KatieHill4CA about her quote in @NYTimes. We wanted to give Katie the opportunity to explain before we made a public statement. #CA25
nytimes.com/2018/11/09/us/…
2/We do appreciate that @KatieHill4CA took the time to listen to our concerns about the consequences of this quote. We'll allow Katie to better explain how this quote came about. #CA25
3/We want be clear that this order of sentences, however they came to print are uninformed and dangerous. We and so many LA-based activists worked tirelessly these past 2 years to get the #NRA out of #CA25 and that includes NRA talking points.

NRA is still at it.
FEC Complaint
SENATE 2018

Josh Hawley’s Senate campaign & NRA's PAC have engaged in an elaborate scheme to conceal illegal coordination against @McCaskill4MO,
in a race that could decide control of the Senate.

mcclatchydc.com/latest-news/ar…
Hawley’s campaign employs the same people to produce ads as the NRA Political Victory Fund.

The NRA PVF has spent $1M+ on behalf of the MO GOP AG'S campaign against Sen. Claire McCaskill.

It has set records for spending by outside groups in MISSOURI. campaignlegal.org/document/clc-c…
The overlap in personnel is strong evidence of coordination between the PAC & Josh Hawley's campaign. - Brendan Fischer, dir of the fed reform program at the Nonpartisan Campaign Legal Center.

Complaint filed by CLC, co-signed by Giffords, org lead by former Rep. Gabby Giffords

Hidden motive behind Republican attempts to fast-track #Kavanaugh:

“Under the doctrine of separate sovereigns, federal & state govt are considered to be "separate sovereigns", so Double Jeopardy Clause does not apply to prosecution of the same crime by both fed and state courts”

Manafort's plea deal requires him to cooperate "in any and ALL matters" deemed relevant by the Government. Of course, Mueller certainly would deem election-related crimes by @realDonaldTrump, his spawn, and Kush "relevant."🔥

h/t @SpicyFiles courtlistener.com/recap/gov.usco…
So forget this utter nonsense that Trump isn't included in Manafort's plea deal. There is ZERO carve out for **anyone** or **anything**.

Manafort must cooperate COMPLETELY. Full stop.😎

#TrumpRussia
#MuellerTime
Manafort's plea deal is BIGLY bad for @realDonaldTrump and his spawn (Don Jr, Kremlin🇷🇺Barbie, Eric) + spawn-in-law Kush, who all were heavily involved in the campaign.

And it's also BIGLY bad for Manafort's longtime partner-in-crime, ROGER STONE.😎

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. narativ.org/2017/06/17/mee…
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?
Read 4 tweets
This is significant because it ties the #NRA operation to the #EndMagnitsky operation, and all by way of #Kremlin’s own @DanaRohrabacher...And to put a bow on top of it, both operations link to @DonaldJTrumpJr and the #TrumpTower meeting. @WendySiegelman 👏

The NRA has deep ties to accused Russian spy Maria Butina (she is a lobbyist not a "spy" but whatever)

Looks like weapons traffickers have been using NRA as a business-finding front for some time

motherjones.com/politics/2018/… via @MotherJones
[2] I am a #2A advocate , and #NRA member . But when it comes to weapons trafficking, that is a no-can-do .

And now we have to face the code-red alarming reality - the current new NRA president is none other than #OliverNorth ... from the days of #IranContra
[3] The Swamp is everywhere

Dont get tripped up:

* The #NRA is not the #2A
* @realDonaldTrump is not "establishment GOP"
* #UraniumOne far worse than guns
* #IranContra / #AwanCOntra included DRUGS -> #OpioidEpidemic
* A few Russians is not a Russian state-sponsored conspiracy

1/ #ProtectOurVotes #Handmarked #PaperBallots

NO VOTING MACHINE IS AN ISLAND -

All require, at one point or another, connection to another device, which inevitably leads to connection to a PC or server which may or may not be hooked to the internet but most likely is.
2/

ALL ELECTRONIC VOTING MACHINES ARE HACKABLE

And there is reason to believe hacking has occurred in the past (Gore, Ossoff, ..) -- though no hard evidence (difficult to get when the server is wiped after a suit is filed) to prove.
3/

THE NEXT BEST THING TO #HANDMARKED #PAPERBALLOTS

is human readable, verifiable, audit tape and legislature allowing it to be used when even reasonable doubt or question exists.

#Mueller’s key problem: “Collusion” was laundered thru other intermediary orgs that were solidly in Trumputin’s camp+ had field campaign/media capabilities of their own— like the #NRA. motherjones.com/politics/2018/…
#Mueller #NextSteps That weird stacked @BBC panel yesterday got me thinking. #UK elites may be preparing for 1.#HardBrexit 2. #ShittyofLondon needing all the #MoscowMoney it can get; 3.#Trumputin surviving Mueller; 4. RU interventions in the upcoming US+(espec) #EU Parl elections
This means that pro-dem forces (including “many” Ds, Rs, Greens, Labor, SPDs, DSs, etc) in the US,UK/EU need to prepare for #MuellerFail, not by being fired, but by closing down the #collusioncharge, ala #BCCI. Prob not b4 11/18, since that wld be #ComeyII.

Thread: USA viewed as 'client state' under political and economic control of Russia.

Already it's exhibiting characteristics of a "post-socialist' / "2nd world" country.

Some characteristics of the worst-off of them? Let a Southeast Asia wonk note some similarities! [1/20]
1. "State Capture:" consolidation of one-party rule under a pretense of multiparty democracy.

(Russian interference on behalf of Trump, Repub gerrymandering, voter 'fraud' laws to suppress Dem turnout.)
[2/20]
2. Complete repudiation of prior political regime.

(Trump's zeal to undo all Obama administration achievements i.e Iran Deal, Affordable Care Act) [3/20]

🔥In the charging documents for accused #Russian🇷🇺agent Maria Butina, the unnamed “US Person 1” — who established a “VERY private line of communication btwn the Kremlin & key [@GOP] leaders through, of all conduits, the #NRA” — appears to be #GOP consultant Paul Erickson. 1/

Note that #DOJ says that “US Person 1” arranged the secret backchannel btwn the Kremlin and **key @GOP leaders** (not just Team Trump).🔥

Could #NRA and #RussianRubles🇷🇺 convinced him to go?

2/ In 2014, "To get its message out, the NRA turned to an unknown consulting firm, Starboard Strategic, paying it $19 million. More than a third of that money was invested in must-win Senate seats in Colorado, North Carolina and Arkansas..."

Ron Johnson (R-WI) defended his Senate seat in 2016 by fewer than 100,000 votes:
👀
>Johnson's campaign paid OnMessage almost $4 million, but in stopped in August
>In October, the NRA stepped up, and paid Starboard nearly $200,000 for Johnson advertising
