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.

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."

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

#RogerStone’s problem is that he’s a self-promoter given to misleading people about his access. Ask @POTUS. @JulianAssange has already said that #Stone was falsely portraying himself as having inside information, when the public record shows he knew nothing not already public.
… is this why the @StateDept — still aching from @ChelseaXY having humiliated @HillaryClinton — is leaning on #Ecuador to force #China-style restrictions on @JulianAssange? He’s the ONLY person who could reveal the truth about the #RussiaGate myth, dooming #Mueller’s #WitchHunt.
… or is there something more at play here w/ notorious fabulist #RogerStone? He’s clearly no mastermind, but is he the one person who could — if coerced & blackmailed into lying by #DirtyCop #Mueller — implicate @POTUS @realDonaldTrump in a fictional scheme to “collude?”

#CampaignFinance records from the 1990 effort showed that
#Pence then 31, had been using political DONATIONS to pay the MORTGAGE on his house, his personal CREDIT CARD bill, groceries, GOLF tournament
fees and CAR PAYMENTS
for his wife.

#Pence's older brothers, Ed Pence, is an executive at Cummins Inc., a company that manufactures engines for the #Russian military and has also used LOBBYING firms connected with #PaulManafort, indicating that Pence may have ties to #Russia.

#Pence gives #Putin brophile a new meaning and takes Russiaphilia to a whole new level. It gives Pence MOTIVE for IGNORING U.S. Congressman Cummings’ warning, last November, re #FLYNN.
Cummins is deeply involved in #Russia through sales and joint ventures.

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!!

On #OlegDeripaska , the billionaire Putin ally who illegally gave $400,000,000 to @HillaryClinton in the #2016Election (which, 3 days later she still has not refuted accepting):

Deripaska employed #PaulManafort for four years.

Cc @ThomasWictor @drawandstrike
It is a crime to both give or accept campaign donations to/from a foreign national.

#OlegDeripaska obviously fits the criteria to the point that even someone as hopelessly out of touch as @HillaryClinton would have to recognize.

If Leaky @RepAdamSchiff wants collusion... 👆
Keep in mind this is on top of the hundreds of thousands of dollars in “speaking fees” paid to @BillClinton by #Russia & the $150,000,000+ Hillary took from the #UraniumOne #Rosatom Russian uranium deal.

In September 2016, @KellyannePolls told Trump he couldn't get elected if he kept claiming @POTUS44 was born in Kenya--as he had 67x on Twitter over 6yrs. So Trump gave a press conference saying he believed Obama was born in the US, gave no explanation, took no questions.

1/
Trump has since walked that back.

Remember at the Inaugural luncheon where he paid tribute to @HillaryClinton and all she has done for America and asked those in attendance to applaud her?

Trump soon walked that back as well & has directed his DOJ to investigate her again.
2/
Everyone knows Trump lies, that he has always lied and that he believes his own lies.

Trump lied repeatedly at the #HelsinkiSummit presser. He also told his truth--that Russia didn't attack our 2016 election.There is videotape of the live broadcast which the whole world saw.

So the key @WhiteHouse access reporter from the @nytimes doesn't see today's events as #BREAKING.

That is hard to fathom.

#HelsinkiSummit
.@maggieNYT stood with @PressSec against @Acosta during the #TrumpUKVisit.

Haberman also supported SHS after the #WHCD and the #RedHen incident. In 2017, Haberman said the cast of #Hamilton was rude to @VP Pence and that it was unseemly, as he was VP.
.@maggieNYT was primary reporter on the Hillary Clinton email beat. MH was personally bylined on 53 stories related to Clinton's emails.

No newspaper or reporter had more detailed coverage--incl the front page after the #ComeyLetter which NYT's own Upshot said cost the election.

The @GOP and any remaining tRumpsters out there better start paying attention to the FACTS and the WARNINGS, & opinions from HIGHLY respected, life long PUBLIC SERVANTS who truly care ONLY about protecting OUR COUNTRY. They DGAF about politics...

/1
...well, until politicians start preventing them from performing their DUTIES. These CAREER PROFESSIONALS do not politics affect their work. They follow the facts, they verify tips on illegal activity (#SteeleDossier) or clarify FALSE accusations (illegally wire tapped).

/2
Investigations are SUPPOSED to have a NATURAL conclusion. That means tips, leads, facts, ENTIRE investigation has exhausted all relative leads & come to a VERIFIABLE conclusion. The same way we expect ALL law enforcement to do when we're accused of crimes, or crimes against us
