Sessions wrote:
“Mr. Huber is conducting his work… in cooperation with the Inspector General. The additional matters raised… fall within the scope of his existing mandate, and I am confident that Mr. Huber’s review will include a full, complete, and objective evaluation…”

While #SpecialCounsel #RobertMueller concluded there was no evidence of #Collusion between the Trump campaign and #Russia, some of the key people in creating the #RussiaCollusion narrative themselves have ties to a foreign nation.

(Thread 👇)…
Both the @DNC as well as #FusionGPS—the company hired by the DNC and the #Clinton campaign to research the Trump campaign—were using #Ukrainian sources in their efforts to discredit Trump.

Serhiy #Leshchenko, a Ukrainian member of parliament, was a common thread involved.
#Leshchenko, along with Artem Sytnyk, the director of #Ukraine’s National Anti-Corruption Bureau, was responsible for publicly disclosing the contents of the #Ukrainian “black ledger,” which implicated #Manafort, to the media.

@INETeconomics By a chance, the article saying #MMT "theorists ignore how their policies could hurt developing countries" places #Ukraine currency #hryvnia (notes of 20 hryvnia's) as its cover picture.

@INETeconomics Btw, another time when #MMT-related literature opted by a mere chance to associate itself with #Ukraine's currency was the book 'Can "It" Happen Again?' written by Hyman Minsky (2nd ed published in 2016).

This time there is a jar of coins 5 kopecks each (5 #копійок).

@INETeconomics I am #Ukrainian, having a 22-year experience in the Ukraine's financial sector (1995-2017) and working full-day jobs first as bank officer doing debts/credits and then as research economist. I worked in the banking sector as well as in the non-banking financial sector.

A top #Ukrainian presidential candidate & Maidan politician states in Ukrainian #media interview that investigation of the #Maidan massacre is stonewalled because of the involvement of someone from the current leadership of #Ukraine in this mass killing.…
It took five years after the Maidan massacre and four and half years after my first study of this crucial mass killing in Ukraine.
Anatolii Hrytsenko is also political science professor at Kyiv Mohyla Academy, and he was Minister of Defense after the "Orange Revolution" in Ukraine.

I want to create a new THREAD: it will be updated day by day and it will be about all those weird political events taking place in #Russia: mysterious murders, weird accuses against journalists or politicians and no sense statements.
Vladimir Uglev, the scientist who took part in the creation of #Novichok and who said that he had no doubt the agent that poisoned the Skripals was made in #Russia (…) is now under police investigation for alleged pedophilia.
After the #US killed many #Russia|n Wagner PMC in #Syria (Feb. 2018), Russia's consulate in #Damascus issued death certificates with fake dates to cover up the exact toll.…

AUG 2 meeting is of significance to SCO,” Weissmann said pointedly. ...only a partial transcript was released because SCO has argued public disclosure of issues discussed could harm “ongoing law enforcement investigations.” DAMN RIGHT GET HIM @maddow #p2
#WaPo piece Manafort has pleaded guilty to a series of #crimes related to consulting work in #Ukraine. He has not yet been accused of coordinating with Russians to tilt election.#Kilimnik, whom prosecutors have #charged with working with Manafort to obstruct SCO investigation
Manafort “goes way outside the normal bounds of behavior,” Mowatt-Larssen said.
Another fmr called the details about what occurred at the #GrandHavanaRoom gathering “the most interesting and potentially significant development we have seen in a long time.” @llauferlaw @jentaub

Another #Maidan massacre bombshell in #Ukraine: #Ukrainian media reveals that Kyiv prosecutors investigation found that killers of 2 traffic policemen were among Maidan snipers & received phone calls from parliament deputies of Maidan party after killing…
The investigation of police killings after these findings was transferred to Ukrainian police controlled by the same party & completely stalled. Two two killed policemen were included in 'Heavenly Hundred' of killed Maidan protesters & their killing was attributed to 'titushki.'
Female parliament deputy description matches ex-far right activist, who was cast as Maidan hero & victim & was involved in deadly attack of Party of Regions headquarters. Her patron description matches Maidan leader who was filmed evacuating person with rifle during massacre.

#Ukrainian police commanders launch "I am Bandera" flesh mob in honor of leader of ultranationalist and semi-fascist OUN, which collaborated with #Nazi Germany at beginning & end of #WW2 & was involved in mass murder of Poles, #Jews, Ukrainians & #Russians…
Bandera flesh mob is launched after neo-Nazi C14 attacked #Kyiv district #Police headquarters following detention of C14 activists with knives & other weapons at Tymoshenko eection rally. Prosecutor General Office of #Ukraine investigates police for detaining neo-Nazi activists.
Detention of neo-Nazi C14 activists, who admit collaboration with SBU, at Tymoshenko election rally is another evidence of Avakov defection to Tymoshenko. But Bandera flesh mob shows that regime & far right are united in worshiping Nazi collaborator & mass murderer.

#Ukrainian parliament has amended Constitution by including EU and NATO memberships as #Ukraine goals. This is another election ploy by Poroshenko, since my research shows that Ukraine has no prospects of EU and NATO memberships in the foreseeable future.…
My research shows that Ukraine has no prospects of EU and NATO memberships in the foreseeable future because the Western countries would not accept Ukraine into these organizations. "Euromaidan" did not change this in spite of predictions to the contrary.…
Opposition to NATO membership of #Ukraine by such NATO members as Germany, Crimea & Donbas conflicts, Russian military interventions there & possibility of escalation of regional conflicts & new military intervention by #Russia in case of movement towards NATO suggest 0 prospect

#Ukraine ex-president #Yanukovych at press conference today mentioned my #Maidan massacre study along with TV documentaries about Maidan snipers by Italian & Israeli journalists (17m). #Ukrainian #media reports omitted his reference to my academic study.
#Ukrainian publication that mentioned it misrepresented my last name & falsely claimed that I told Yanukovych about my study findings. This was done even though his reference to my study is available in press-conference broadcasts of Ukrainian TV channels.…
This is latest example of cover-up, censorship & fake news concerning Maidan massacre & my academic study of this crucial case of mass kiling for Ukraine and the world.

A @BILD investigation shows the Russian Army is systematically using German-made folding propellers to run its military drone fleet.
By doing so, #Russia might have found a way to bypass the 2014 #Ukraine-related #EUsanctions for dual-use goods.…
The German companies "Graupner" & "aero-naut" were shocked to hear that their rotor blades are used in Russian military drones.
One CEO told @BILD “We have no intention at all of supporting this kind of use & will consider the extent to which we can take action against such use."
@BILD We found evidence, the #Russian drones with #German rotor blades were used to coordinate artillery fire on #Ukrainian troops since 2015 and are still used to breach Ukrainian air space in 2019.
The most recent downing of such drone - a Granat-2 - happened on January 23.

It shows that the absolute majority of 66 wounded Maidan protesters, with whose shooting Berkut policemen are charged, testified that they were in fact shot from Maidan-controlled locations, witnessed snipers there or were told about snipers there by other protesters.

I have a few (likely unpopular) thoughts and (likely wrong) predictions about how the #Ukrainian crisis is going to unfold.
1. Like everyone else who has been following this of late, I do suspect that the Ecumenical Patriarch will issue a Tomos of Autocephaly for the Ukrainian Orthodox Church and I suspect that will happen before Christmas.
2. I think the majority of other autocephalous churches will issue statements lamenting the situation and will delay issuing a formal response as to whether or not they recognize an independent Ukrainian Church.

.@washingtonpost made gross mistake (or #fakenews?) citing Amb Antonov on the referendum issue. At the @ValdaiClub talk WP referring to Antonov said "#Ukrainian issue was discussed”(not "#Donbass referendum" issue), adding"not all details shld be revealed"…
This mistake (or, again, was it intentional #fakenews frill?) set a line of reports that "#Russia reveals..." which is not the case. The info was allegedly LEAKED by two Rus diplomats to @business…
The proposal on #Donbass appears to have indeed been made by #Putin,the info was not supposed to be disclosed until #Trump discussed it with his team. One may not like the proposal itself, but that it's now disclosed is bad for solution of the issue,courtesy of presidential talks

Another #Maidan massacre bombshell: Yanukovych lawyer says that Yanukovych trial judge has refused to hear testimony & other evidence by pro-Maidan #Ukraine parliament deputy that Maidan leaders organized groups of snipers to shoot police & protesters
and that one sniper was captured by #Maidan protesters but was released by Maidan leaders. This deputy (Artemenko) was one of Right Sector leaders in Spring 2014, now lives in US and reportedly gave such testimony about Maidan massacre to the US grand jury in #Russiagate case.
In contrast, there is not single public testimony by ex-Yanukovych associates, police & SBU commanders/servicemen about order by Yanukovych or other government officials/commanders to massacre protesters, organizing or covering up snipers, or confessions about shooting protesters
