Wow...look at who pops up in the ‘Active Measures’ video on Prime, @BorisJohnson - it’s #JackWakefield’s former boss, #DmytroFirtash! Wakefield is #DominicCummings’ brother-in-law & Firtash helps #Putin launder #Russian money! #ReleaseTheRussianReport

#Firtash is friends with #PaulManafort who was #DonaldTrump’s campaign manager - Manafort was imprisoned for corruption and fraud. Manafort helped to launder money in US for #Firtash and indirectly #Putin.

#Firtash bought the Brompton Road Tube Station at the eleventh hour. The redevelopment of disused tube stations was a (flagging) project for #BorisJohnson during his time as Mayor of #London. Firtash came out of nowhere to buy the station, bypassing the bidding process

1. anche se ne ho parlato già ieri sera in inglese, rispondo a chi mi continua a chiedere dell'articolo del #DailyBeast, secondo il quale #ArronBanks avrebbe vantato un canale di comunicazione con Julian #Assange e #WikiLeaks, che trovate qui in inglese: thedailybeast.com/man-who-bankro…
2. ho spiegato ieri sera perché sono completamente scettica riguardo a gente che va a vantarsi in giro di "un canale" con Julian #Assange: sono anni che #Guardian, #DailyBeast, ecc pubblicano questi articoli senza uno straccio di prova
3. dunque secondo le ricostruzioni giornalistiche, #ArronBanks sarebbe stato l'uomo della #Brexit in combutta con i #russi

Year in Review📅20 Notable Spygate Developments of 2019

by @IvanPentchoukov (Thread👇) theepochtimes.com/year-in-review…
In the saga of “#Spygate,” 2019 has shaped up to be the year the tables turned.

In the first days of January 2019, a federal judge extended the term of the #GrandJury in the #SpecialCounsel investigation by #RobertMueller.
Later that month, the @FBI raided the home of veteran Republican strategist #RogerStone in front of @CNN cameras.

The raid and indictment of Stone were symbolic of the spectacle that was the #RussiaInvestigation.

@guardian @skirchy @yachay_dc @lukeharding1968 2. together with the fake news on #PaulManafort, the @Guardian's fake story that there was a #Russian plot to smuggle Julian #Assange to #Russia was completely groundless and resulted in a demonisation campaign against Julian #Assange which ultimately resulted in his arrest

“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 theepochtimes.com/horowitz-repor…
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.” justice.gov/storage/120919…

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.

(Thread👇) theepochtimes.com/key-findings-o…
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.

The @FBI ran 4 informants and “a few” undercover agents against Trump campaign aides @CarterWPage and @GeorgePapa19, according to #IGHorowitz.

FBI told the OIG it was snooping on Page and Papadopoulos because of their contacts with #Russia. (Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/fbi-targeted-t…
But the @FBI also had one of the informants reach out to a high-level Trump campaign official who was not investigated. That official appears to have been #SamClovis.

The informant has been identified by @EpochTimes and others as Cambridge professor #StephanHalper.
@FBI All conversations Halper had with Page, Papadopoulos, and Clovis were monitored by the @FBI, the OIG said.

#IGHorowitz made the revelations in a Dec. 9 report on his review of a #FISA warrant taken out by the FBI against Page and other aspects of the related FBI investigation.

#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…

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:

Shaheen: I’d like to follow up on Senator Moran’s question about the hearing we had with Attorney General Barr. Because, I was very concerned by his…
… use of the word “spying” which I think is a very loaded word. It conjures up a criminal connotation. I want to ask you and I’d appreciate a “yes” or “no” answer if possible.

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.
