I just published: “Paul Manafort = Evidence of Collusion”

Bottom line up front: Nine significant pieces of info in public record point to conspiracy with Russians and violations of federal campaign finance law...

<THREAD>

1. Manafort proposes to Putin-linked, Russian oligarch a plan to “greatly benefit Putin,” and they get to work (2005-)

Original Scoop for this story is @AssociatedPress story by @JeffHorwitz @ChadSDay:

2. Manafort joins Trump Campaign and stays in frequent contact with a Kiev-based operative who has active ties to Russian military intelligence (March 2016-)

Carter Page is an FBI asset in Mar 2016 & yet somehow by Oct 2016 he is touted a foreign agent, acting on behalf of mother Russia, & deserving of a FISA Title-1 Surveillance Warrant to be monitored as if he were a terrorist en-route to the detonation site: theconservativetreehouse.com/2018/05/18/pre…
2. "Carter Page's an FBI asset & witness, who'd been responsible for busting a high level Russian agent; DOJ National Security Division & FBI Counterintelligence Division knew damn well Page wasn’t a Russian agent & flat-out LIED to the FISA court." theconservativetreehouse.com/2018/05/18/pre…
3. The FISA surveillance authority over Carter Page was retroactive cover for DOJ & FBI surveillance on Trump campaign. Prior to the Oct 21, 2016 FISA Warrant, FBI was limited to using illegal searches of FISA(702)(16)(17) FBI & NSA data; & (cf NYT) “National Security Letters”.

I'll be on @maddow @MSNBC at 9pm-ish on today's breaking Qatar/Trump Tower/Russia news. I've had to update this #SteeleDossier timeline 4 times today. Is Qatar turning on Cohen. Will they turn on Trump? shugerblog.com/2018/05/14/rus…
Tonight's story: Qataris say Michael Cohen tried to shake them down for millions in Trump Tower 12/12/16: "Kuwaiti source claimed Al-Rumaihi told him that Cohen tried to get the money during a meeting which also included Flynn." He claims he refused... dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5…
1) Let's take this single source story with a grain of salt. 2) Even without this story, what are Qatari officials doing at Trump Tower 4 days after buying Rosneft, and then lending Kushner $184 million a year later? See timeline for all the Russia-Trump-Kushner contacts Dec'16.

THREAD/Timeline on the significance of #Qatar as alleged intermediary between Russia and Trump through Dec'16 Rosneft sale (from #SteeleDossier, revelations about Qatar-backed $184M loan to Kushner, and now from @MichaelAvenatti). 1/
2/ This timeline builds on the piece I wrote in March about Kushner and Qatar: #SteeleDossier alleges that in Summer 2016, Russia made a deal to sell 19% of fossil fuel giant Rosneft, then secretly funnel commissions to Trump insiders in exchange for sanctions relief...
Dec.1,'16: Flynn & Kushner met Kislyak at Trump Tower, propose a secret link with Kremlin thru Russian embassy.
Dec.8: Russia sells 19% of Rosneft to Qatar.
Dec.12: Today's allegation from @MichaelAvenatti: Qatari diplomat met Cohen & Flynn. Coincidence?

My take in @Slate: “What does Pence know, and when did he know it?” He’s calling for an end of the Mueller investigation out of fear. slate.com/news-and-polit…
“The Cohen news only heightens the risk to @mike_pence. Mueller has Cohen’s records, and may also have Vekselberg’s records. Vekselberg’s payments began soon after Flynn/Kushner contacted Russians. @realDonaldTrump, meanwhile, sabotaged sanctions—the quo in for Russian quid. 2/
3/ “Even if Pence didn’t know of a bribery scheme, he reportedly participated in the cover-up and the obstruction of the investigation. It makes sense for @VP @mike_pence to call for an end to the investigation: he’s an uncomfortable witness and potentially one of its targets.”

How #Trump became a #Soviet/#Russian Agent
1. #Trump's first known visit to #Soviet and #Moscow in 1987 looks to be part of a pattern. The #SteeleDossier says that the #Kremlin had been cultivating# Trump for “at least five years” before 2016 elections, meaning it asserts a beginning in 2011 or 2012.
2.The #SovietUnion was interested in #Trump three decades earlier. The top level of the #Soviet diplomatic service arranged his 1987 #Moscow visit.

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
