Remember the Cohen, Sater, Flynn, Manafort & Artemenko “Ukrainian Peace Plan” Feb 2017?

Does the WBC deemed a “credible & urgent” NatSec issue center in a version of the above to cede the Crimea & republics of Donetsk & Luhansk to RU & lift sanctions?

9/6/19: Trump Cuts “Muscle” from European Defense to Fund Border Wall

9/10/19: RU state TV says that Trump volunteered to act as a mediator, negotiating peace between Russia and Ukraine”

9/12/19 White House releases $250 million in Ukraine military aid

9/18/19 Ukraine’s troops prepare for mutual withdrawal along Donbas frontline

9/16/19 Zelensky Hints At Peace With Russia

Zelensky, Trump may meet in New York next week Sept 25, 2019

Ergo WBC = urgent & credible NatSec issue — not the Biden issue per se.

Let’s take the Biden ’dirt’ hunt aspect out of the story & set it aside as a horrific diversion for now.

The truth is much worse.

😨Ex CIA Bob Baer suggests the “urgent credible threat” in the whistleblower complaint (that DNI won’t give Congress) ”usually” has something to do w/ someone in White House setting up an illegal backchannel to a foreign govt, or some sort of corruption, discovered by CIA or NSA.
🚨>> Whistleblower complaint involves TRUMP’S communications with a foreign leader that included a “promise” regarded so troubling it prompted an official in the US intelligence community to file a formal whistleblower complaint with the inspector general.…
In the weeks before the “urgent & credible” whistleblower complaint about Trump’s “promise” to a foreign leader, he had interactions with:
1) Russia’s Putin that WH initiated
2) 2 “beautiful” letters from North Korea’s Kim Jong Un
3) Pakistan’s PM
4) Netherlands’ PM
5) Qatar emir

Confused the USA has been training, financing, supplying & assisting people w/ exactly the same beliefs as those who flew planes into the Twin Towers on 9/11 2001?

It is also seeking with Saudi Arabia to destroy those who are fighting them.

Opposing terrorism:

The Houthi fighters in Yemen are Shi’ite Muslims.

Their opponents in Yemen are Sunni Muslim jihadists, devotees of the Salafi movement which arose in response to Western European imperialism in the late 19th century.

The Salafi movement has its roots in the 18th century Wahhabi movement which originated in Saudi Arabia as did those who attacked the Twin Towers in New York on 9/11 2001.

Therefore you might think the USA would side w/ the Houthis.

It had to happen sooner or later.

It is surprising it didn’t arrive sooner considering the extent of the ignorance & arrogance involved. The bluff of an evil buffoon is being called.

And Trump has no one to blame but himself...

Trump lost against #Venezuela.

He is losing against #Iran. He will lose against #China & #Russia.

And he will lose against #Cuba, #Nicaragua & #Bolivia.

And lose again because of his support of the murderous #Saudis.

Trump is an egotistical thug 100% more interested in his reputation than any lives lost.

For Trump it’s all “worth it” in the infamous words of Madeleine Albright.

No. of lives lost is irrelevant to Trump as long as his ego stays intact.

This is shocking—even for #Russia! Actor Pavel Ustinov was meeting a friend in Moscow on the same day as one of the recent election protests. He yelled out to his friend and riot police swooped in & arrested him. He was tried for hurting the cop! And sentenced to 3.5 yrs in jail!
#Russia's cops often randomly grab protesters to arrest them. But #Ustinov wasn't even protesting. His sister said he went downtown to meet a friend. There's video of him literally just looking at his phone when riot police tackled him. Court didn't allow it as evidence. 3.5yrs!
"Let's not be silent. Let's talk about this injustice." #Russia's theater community are posting videos (collected in this THREAD⤵️) to show support & spread the word about Pavel Ustinov's Kafkaesque fate. Cops attacked HIM—for doing nothing—and HE's going to jail for 3.5 years.😧

🔥NEW Bombshell report on #Putin's #cyberwar on America >> #Russia carried out a 'stunning' breach of FBI communications system, escalating the spy game on US soil. Yahoo reports a Russian mole probably infiltrated our intelligence community (🤔Only one?)…
I remember how outraged the Kremlin was about losing its San Francisco consulate. And the smoke billowing from the chimney as they raced to burn evidence of their espionage. Turns out, #Russia's Bay Area diplomats/spies played a key role in a brazen operation targeting the FBI ‼️
Turns out #Russia lost its SanFrancisco consulate bldg for more than election hacking. Obama sanctions were also b/c they'd been engaged in a brazen operation since 2010—when "illegals" were exposed—to keep FBI from tracking 🇷🇺spies. (No 🙄they weren't burning for "Conservation")

Tomorrow Sept.16 Ankara to host trilateral #Russia-#Iran-#Turkey summit on #Syria. It is expected to announce quite important decisions on, e.g. finalization of the Constitutional Committee & political process in general, #Idlib, return of #refugees, humanitarian aid. Stay tuned.
#Putin just landed in #Ankara for trilateral #Syria summit. Apart of #Syria related issues #Russia, #Iran & #Turkey will likely to discuss the recent attack on #SaudiArabia oil facilities which led to 19% increase of Brent price & will likely increase regional tensions.
#Putin & #Erdogan just finished bilateral talks. Instead of planned hour-long meeting they spent 2 hrs.
Topics discussed are quite evident judging by #Russia's lineup:
- #Lavrov
- FP aide Ushakov
- energy minister Novak
- defense minister #Shoigu
- #Syria special envoy Lavrentiev

News Analysis 🔎 The revelation of the alleged extraction of a #Russian @CIA #Spy has raised a number of questions, including how the #CIA used the information it received—and the quality of that information.

(Thread 👇) By Jeff Carlson @themarketswork…
Notably, the #Spy appears to have been a key source for allegations of #Russian interference in the 2016 elections.

A closer examination of the spy’s alleged background, however, paints a complicated picture. The spy’s direct supervisor appears to have been mentioned in the…
#SteeleDossier, and it’s possible that information provided by the #Spy may have been included in the dossier.

The primary allegation in the Sept. 9 @CNN article—that the decision to extricate the spy was driven by “concerns that President Donald Trump……

How many died as a result of persecutions and the policies of #MaoZedong? Perhaps you care to guess? Many people over the years have attempted to guess, but they have always underestimated. It could be as high as #100million or more.
The horror was foreshadowed in a bloody civil war following the #SecondWorldWar. After some #9million people died, the #communists emerged victorious in 1949, with #MaoZedong as the ruler.

“President Trump and his personal attorney appear to have increased pressure on the Ukrainian government and its justice system in service of President Trump’s reelection campaign." -- @RepEliotEngel @RepAdamSchiff @RepCummings in letters to WH & State.

#Russia Has Compromising Information on Trump, former KGB chief Oleg Kalugin says…
Ex KGB Chief Kalugin says he saw documents about the kompromat collected from Trump's USSR visits. He says the compromising material is w/ girls/prostitutes. He states Russia's KGB has a very long memory & can wait decades before using its kompromat. Trump knows this, he says.
Kalugin says KGB sent Trump girls assigned to sleep w/ foreigners. This was SOP w/ visiting Americans—USSR's primary collection target. He doesn't rule out that Trump's wives—both from modeling agencies (where KGB recruited)—had been recruited by KGB too.👀…

💣Bombshell: US had to extract a top spy in Russia in 2017—after Trump disclosed classified info to Kislyak & Lavrov at the White House—fearing Trump might put our asset’s life in danger - CNNPolitics…
😱Trump is such a grave risk to US national security, we had to REMOVE our top spy INSIDE Russia’s govt! Can you imagine the years of work to get a human source close to Putin?! We lost critical insight in our biggest threat while Trump carries out an agenda favorable to it.🤯
As Molly points out, our now exfiltrated spy from inside the Kremlin was the likely source for US intel's conclusion that Putin directed Russia's influence operation to corrupt the 2016 election for Trump.

Q: Did Pompeo pull him to protect the spy or to protect Trump??

There are so, so many reasons why this seems a deeply misguided initiative. Where shall we start.

#France #Russia #RollOverForPutin…
2/ Resets don't work if you ignore the underlying deep differences in world view and strategic priorities between Russia and the West. Trying to patch up a fundamentally flawed relationship is no substitute for an honest conversation about what is wrong with it.
3/ In fact, they make things worse. Each time (and it happens routinely) that Russia is forgiven for its appalling behaviour, it encourages the Kremlin to believe that it will be forgiven for even worse excesses in the future. And why wouldn't they.

THREAD on yesterday’s prisoner exchange between #Russia & #Ukraine: 1/10 Just as Savchenko’s pardon in 2016 meant the end of the active phase of war, the new prisoner exchange is meant to show that both sides are ready to move out of limbo toward proper peace.
2/10 Russia’s readiness to exchange Sentsov shows that 3 months into Zelensky’s rule, Russia accepts it is dealing with a different Ukraine, in which diplomatic tools that were useless with Poroshenko can be deployed.
3/10 For the Kremlin, key conditions for the exchange were Zelensky’s recognition of mutual benefits, and the exclusion of a victory/defeat paradigm, though commentators on both sides continue to portray it that way.
