#RobertMueller will be testifying before the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees on July 17.

Here are some crucial questions that should be asked when he testifies (Thread 👇). | Article by Jeff Carlson @themarketswork theepochtimes.com/33-key-questio…
1) Did #AttorneyGeneral Barr in any way misrepresent your 448-page report?

#Mueller failed to identify the grand jury info in the #MuellerReport. Barr noted that “it immediately meant that you know it was going to be a period of weeks before we could get the report out.”
2) Who actually wrote Volume I and Volume II of the #MuellerReport?

At this point, it isn’t known with certainty if #Mueller had any hand in writing the report directly, or if he simply served in an oversight capacity.

1) This thread is about an occurrence during the #TrumpRussia #SpecialCounsel investigation that, even though not popularly recognized, represents a major contradiction within the final #MuellerReport.
2) That occurrence is the failed redaction of #PaulManafort's legal team's release of their #SentencingMemorandum.
3) First, the #SpecialCounsel released their #SentencingMemorandum for the #PaulManafort trial.

That #SentencingMemorandum contained redactions that hid facts from the Manafort investigation from the Public, and Congress.

#AttorneyGeneral Barr is working to review the techniques used to investigate Trump’s 2016 campaign.

Here are 10 key questions that remain to be answered in the scandal that has become known as #Spygate (Thread 👇):

Commentary by @JasperFakkert theepochtimes.com/spygate-origin…
1. What was the role that @CIA and John Brennan’s ‘Interagency Task Force’ played?

Former CIA Director Brennan admitted that he passed intelligence received from the #UK on the Trump campaign to the @FBI with the intention of having them investigate it:
“It served as the basis…
… for the FBI investigation to determine whether such collusion [or] cooperation occurred.”

Notably, Brennan met with then-head of the #UK #Spy agency @GCHQ, Robert Hannigan, in #Washington in 2016. The meeting was unusual, since Hannigan’s US equivalent…

News Analysis 🔎 | The author of the #SteeleDossier told a @StateDept official that his client wanted allegations against Trump out before elections, and claimed #Russia had an agent planted in @DNC.

(Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/memo-shows-ste…
A recently released @StateDept memo revealed that #SteeleDossier author #ChristopherSteele met with Kathleen Kavalec, then-deputy assistant secretary for European and Eurasian affairs, on Oct. 11, 2016—10 days prior to the @FBI obtaining a #FISA warrant on Carter Page.
Noted in a May 10 letter by Sen. @LindseyGrahamSC to @SecPompeo & IG #Horowitz: “Ms. Kavalec’s contacts with Steele may have been the most significant and memorialized communications with him by a U.S. government official prior to the issuance of the Carter Page FISA warrant.”

Media outlets like @washingtonpost & @CNN published headlines claiming that @FBI Dir. #ChristopherWray said there was no evidence of #Spying on the Trump campaign.

The problem is, that wasn’t what Wray had actually said. (Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/fbi-director-c…
With regard to #Wray’s comments on ”#spying,” he was actually responding to a question regarding the @FBI’s normal operations:

While #Mueller concluded there was no evidence of #RussianCollusion from the Trump campaign, some of the key people in creating the narrative have ties to #Ukraine. theepochtimes.com/ties-to-ukrain…
Both the @DNC as well as #FusionGPS—the company hired by the #DNC and the #ClintonCampaign to research the Trump campaign—were using #Ukrainian sources in their efforts to discredit Trump.

Serhiy #Leshchenko, a member of the #Ukraine's Parliament, was a common thread involved…
… in Democratic opposition research efforts into former Trump campaign Chairman #PaulManafort.

#Leshchenko, along with Artem #Sytnyk, was responsible for publicly disclosing the contents of the #Ukrainian “black ledger,” which implicated #Manafort, to the media.

One paragraph of the #MuellerReport proves a quid pro quo between the Trump Campaign and the Kremlin to have the Kremlin commit #ElectionFraud during #Election2016, to benefit #DonaldTrump.
Here is the paragraph, found on page 14 of 448 in the #MuellerReport:
Let's examine how this paragraph proves a Quid Pro Quo was established between Trump and Putin for the Kremlin assistance for a fraudulent Trump win on November 8, 2016.

Millions of people in the U.S. are appalled by the crimes & corruption of #PaulManafort, Donald Trump's campaign manager. Manafort used his wealth, his privilege & his position as a lawyer, to perpetrate crimes & corruption that have harmed people throughout the world. THREAD.
Many of these crimes were ongoing until quite recently & were committed while he was the chair of Trump's campaign. It was fitting that Trump selected Manafort as his chairman because both men are dishonest and unscrupulous criminals.
Manafort betrayed the legal profession. He betrayed the State of Connecticut. He betrayed the United States. He betrayed humanity.

The hearing in my case against #PaulManafort will be taking place in the Superior Court in Hartford CT on February 7, 2019. I'll be arguing that Manafort's license to practice law must be revoked based on his unethical conduct & criminal convictions. scribd.com/document/39706…
I'm working to have #PaulManafort disbarred in case he's pardoned. He was convicted of conspiracy against the U.S., 5 counts of tax fraud, 2 counts of bank fraud, failure to disclose a foreign bank account & conspiracy to obstruct justice. Trump said he's a "good man."
Mission accomplished. #PaulManafort is disbarred. He surrendered in response to my complaint. He'll go down in history as a traitor. Manafort was from New Britain, CT. Benedict Arnold was from Norwich, CT. Manafort was a worse traitor than Arnold. courant.com/politics/capit…

Thread: @arimelber asked me last night whether #TrumpShutDown was at all related to the pressure brought to bear by the #MuellerProbe. Let’s consider this more closely. It’s a distraction & attempt to show strength at a time that #Trump has been weakened.
First, #MuellerProbe will continue full steam ahead. It is funded and not impacted by #TrumpShutDown. The shutdown isn’t wise or good for anyone. So a shutdown only serves to help Trump if it makes him look strong and like a “winner” to his base. Wrong-headed But Trumpian logic.
Things to remember as we wake up to a partial #GovernmentShutdown: You will still get Medicare, Medicaid, SSI services. Dept of State, DOJ, DOT r among the agencies that will have to shut some activities. Homeland security won’t stop border enforcement, courts will operate.

#JudgeSullivan, United States Judge, popped off in court today, and not in a way that flatters himself:

"Arguably, you sold your country out. You were an unregistered agent of a foreign country while serving as the national security adviser to the president."

#FlynnSentencing US District Judge Emmett Sullivan
Setting aside that the statement is factually false, there is something about Judge Sullivan politically pious ejaculation in court that commands a closer look. In full disclosure, I don't know the judge but I appeared before him once while practicing in DC.
At that time, and ever after, I have said that I found his treatment of my clients' request to be reasonable and fair ... wrong, for sure, but judges will make errors and sometimes that is just compounded by angry vitriols or personal biases.

"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."

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

1.) Tuesday @Judgenap said on @FoxNews with @marthamaccallum that #PaulManafort was investigated by the @FBI 8 years ago for these same crimes & a young Prosecutor by the name of #RodRosenstein exonerated him & said that they are threatening to call RR as their 1st witness!
2.) I was very curious about these claims because Judge Napolitano never went into detail on the story. So I went digging .........
@Techno_Fog had made a post on something that related to what I had also found and I started tying up loose ends. 👇🏼
3.) @hotairblog did a piece that not only implicated Gregory Craig & Clifford Sloan which were part of #Obama's WH Counsel but also stated the @FBI let @PaulManafort walk in 2014!!
