"If the payments to [Ivanka] were compensation for work, it is not clear why Trump would do it in this form, other than to reduce his own tax liability. Another more legally perilous possibility is...a way to transfer assets to his children without incurring a gift tax."💥
"In 2012, he took out a $100 million mortgage on the commercial space in Trump Tower. He took nearly the entire amount as a payout...His company has paid >$15 million in interest on the loan, but nothing on the principal. The full $100 million comes due in 2022."

Delighted to announce the release of my new report for @CFR_org, “The Day After in Venezuela: Delivering Security and Dispensing Justice.” Should @NicolasMaduro relinquish power, the US and likeminded partners will need a plan to reinstate the rule of law.…
#2. International actors have not planned sufficiently for stabilizing the security environment or fostering #transitionaljustice, which could itself be an important lever to push regime operatives toward defection or at least meaningful negotiations.
#3. Aftermath of Maduro’s departure could see conflict among armed factions, unstable political coalitions, corruption, and a #refugee and #migrant outflow. US should anticipate such fallout and identify opps now to ensure that any transition begets the restoration of #democracy.

Watching the @USIP event with @US4AfghanPeace now. Some points that resonate with me in this thread. 1/n
His opening remarks were prepared and nothing really new there--hit all the talking points he's made in recent appearances. 2/n
First Q from Stephen Hadley: What makes you hopeful that talks will succeed? A: Both sides understand that violence cannot be the answer forever. Afghan leaders recognize they made a mistake in the wake of Soviet withdrawal by fighting each other--want to rectify that now. 3/n

THREAD: It is important to realise that troll farms deliberately engage in subtle tactics on an extremely large scale to encourage argument and polarisation on sensitive topics. The goal is to further the foreign policy of their employer by eventually making /1
compromise and understanding on those issues meaningless. It is a tried and tested method of subversion applied to the era of the internet. A lecture on it from the Cold War can be found here: /2

Shocker: #Putin is probably directing #Russia’s influence operations to denigrate ⁦@JoeBiden⁩, support ⁦@realDonaldTrump⁩ and fuel public discord ahead of #Election2020, secret CIA assessment says
cc ⁦@RudyGiuliani⁩ ⁦…
@JoeBiden @realDonaldTrump @RudyGiuliani @RonJohnsonWI Of course Putin's helping Trump—his dream POTUS & America's nightmare—dividing us, trashing democracy & alliances AND PROTECTING PUTIN.

Stop saying Trump DENIES Russian interference. HE'S COVERING IT UP. Just like he threw the scent off Russia in 2016 (recall 400lb man on bed🙄)
@JoeBiden @realDonaldTrump @RudyGiuliani @RonJohnsonWI Who'd've thunk "America's Mayor" would be a traitor? Giuliani's knowingly aiding & abetting a Kremlin operation attacking our election. And as an agent for Trump, it makes Trump an accomplice. Collusion now is so much worse b/c it's by a SITTING POTUS—there b/c of 2016 collusion. Image

In Russia the numbers are rising again. At the beginning of the week there were almost 6,200 new cases. Since the beginning of the pandemic, more than 1.1 million people have been infected in the large country.
The capital Moscow in particular continues to be a hotspot. The authorities have been relaxed so far. Further protective measures are neither necessary nor required, said Anna Popova, head of the consumer protection agency Rospotrebnadzor on Monday.
The Russian leadership is also hoping for its miracle weapon Sputnik V in the fight against Corona: The vaccine was released to the media in the summer. So far, only a few hundred people have been vaccinated for the important phase III of the study.

[#HKers doxxed by #Russia-based pro-#China website]

1. @AFP finds a shady site #HKLeaks ramps up doxxing campaign against pro-democracy #HKers from politicians, teachers, journalists, businessmen, ordinary citizens to expats, w/ names & addresses posted…
2. Promoted by #Beijing loyalists and #CCP’s state mouthpiece, this #Russia-based website moved its domain multiple times and now migrated to Pakistani domain address. While 2000+ #Hongkongers were doxxed, #Hkpolice has charged no one over the doxxing campaign until now.
3. Similar #China-style snooping model may expand overseas, esp when #Chinese #military contractor #Zhenhua Data was found snooping 2.4M+ of politicians, businessmen, academics, celebrities & individuals. Clearly Zhenhua is just the tip of the iceberg.…

Il 17 settembre scorso il Parlamento Europeo ha adottato una risoluzione che avvia il procedimento di infrazione contro la Polonia per violazione dello stato di diritto.
(1) Image
La risoluzione mette sotto accusa la Polonia anche per la violazione dei diritti fondamentali come il pluralismo nell’informazione e l’indipendeza dei media, la libertà di riunione e di associazione, la salute sessuale e riproduttiva, l’incitamento all’odio...
(2) pubblica discriminazione, la violenza contro le donne, la violenza domestica e il comportamento intollerante contro minoranze e altri gruppi vulnerabili con particolare rilievo alle persone LGBT+
Ovviamente la Lega ha votato contro schierandosi con la Polonia di Duda.
