💣🔥💥🍿🐾#SamPatten is a starter on this menu. A thread on #Trump#Putin#Collusion: from pop-singers in Taj Mahal to weapons in Syria, plus what Satan, black cats, soccer, Patriarchs & judo wrestling have in common. Tarantino, it is not. Oh, plus #CambridgeAnalytica. 👇
1. #SamPatten admitted failing to register in the U.S. as a foreign agent for his work lobbying on behalf of a Ukrainian political party. Breaking. 👇
2. "The nature of his cooperation isn’t clear." (Yes, but the connections are telling.👇 ) . Patten worked with Manafort and & on microtargeting operations with Cambridge Analytica.
🔥@GOP operative Sam Patten’s not only has close ties w/Manafort & #Russian🇷🇺spy Konstantin Kilimnik, plus helped #CambridgeAnalytica microtarget voters in the 2014 midterms, Patten also funneled money via #Cyprus to buy Trump inauguration tix for a Ukrainian oligarch‼️

Carole asks Luke: when did Trump cross your radar?
Luke: summer 2016. When Manafort became campaign manager whom Luke had met in Ukraine who was consultant transforming Yavchenko. What was he doing in Soviet Empire?? He was best connected political lobbist in area. Pre-Steele!
@TomTugendhat@Andrew_Adonis Let's look at the facts: 1. The Ref MPs voted for was advisory 2. Cameron then made it binding in the minds of voters who don't understand the niceties of our constitution, which was shabby & underhand of him, because he created a political imperative to take the Ref advice
@TomTugendhat@Andrew_Adonis 3. Parliament never formally made the decision to leave, but gave Mrs May the power to trigger #Article50 through the shameful A50 Bill (launched before its rubbish White Paper was released), which converted Parliament into an irrelevant rubber stamp in the #Brexit process.
@TomTugendhat@Andrew_Adonis 4. Under pressure from the Economic Ruin Group (ERG), Mrs May triggered A50 prematurely, without impact assessments and, crucially, without agreement in her party as to what form #Brexit should take, let alone a plan.
“The ICO was astounded by the amount of personal data stored by political parties.” (They’ve been conducting forensics on hundreds of terabytes from servers seized under criminal warrant.)
Jan-Mar 2017 filed Subject Access Request with SCL (Cambridge Analytica)

May 5, 2018 ICO issues enforcement order to SCL (Cambridge Analytica)

Last July, Michal Kosinski, the @Stanford prof whose personality quiz was used to scrape #Facebook data of MILLIONS of Americans, **met in Moscow** w/#Russian🇷🇺PM Dmitry Medvedev, Sergey Lavrov & several members of #Putin’s cabinet. 1/
Kosinski, who described Lavrov as “a guy who starts wars and takes over countries,” was “flattered” that the #Russians🇷🇺would listen to his talk. “Those guys strike me as one of the most competent and well-informed groups. They did their homework. They read my stuff.”😳 2/
Kosinski researches technology, mass persuasion & artificial intelligence (AI), including the use of AI to detect psychological traits👉🏼research that inspired the creation of #CambridgeAnalytica.🤨 3/
This is actually #AMLO’s re-election: He first won the presidency in 2006. But back then the thieving, scheming, blood-stained criminal gang that rules Mexico (and I’m being polite), declared his dissolute opponent the winner. gregpalast.com/how-the-bernie… #EleccionesMéxico
In 2006, rather than concede to vote thievery, lick his wounds & toddle off on a book tour, #AMLO took his supporters into the streets, raised hell, blocked the capital’s central square for months, held a People’s Inaugural & vowed to never, ever concede. democracynow.org/2006/7/12/flor…
Principle absolutely matters, but in a representative democracy, so does political REALITY. Trump w help from Parscale & #CambridgeAnalytica alum is NOT flying blind. I fear the calls to 'abolish ICE' plays right into their hands. We must be informed. newyorker.com/news/letter-fr…
Is someone collecting data for progressives or are we just going on gut feel? Eventually absolutely the young people will win, but if the courts are stacked for a generation you just made your fight SO much harder...and the win may not be in your lifetime. newyorker.com/news/letter-fr…
THREAD: House Intel Democrat @ericswalwell **hammers** Roger Stone and Michael Caputo👉🏼says both men “lied through their teeth” when they testified before the Intel Cmte & should be investigated for #perjury.🧐 1/
At the parliamentary committee hearing pictured, Mr Nix acknowledged previously undisclosed Russian clients prior to him joining SCL. He was presented with documentation obtained by @CommonsCMS#CambridgeAnalytica
He's testifying before parliamentary committee again today but if Alexander Nix's last performance is anything to go by, the truth will likely not be joining him at today's hearing. 2/3 theguardian.com/uk-news/live/2…
More specifically, Mueller is probing #Treason Meeting #2 at Trump Tower, arranged by Erik Prince👉🏼George Nader (assoc w/#SaudiArabia & UAE) & Zamel (Israeli social media expert) offered to help **THROW THE ELECTION*‼️ 2/
PSY Group (Israeli social-media firm) pitched its services to super PAC s & other entities👉🏼infiltrating target audiences w/elaborately crafted social-media FAKE personas & spreading DISINFORMATION via websites meant to mimic news portals.🤨 3/
#Zuckerberg | You remind me of “Kalden” in the book “The Circle”; the founder of a big data company, growing out of his control, influencing elections.
#Zuckerberg | Nearly every year since 2003 there was a wrongdoing or problem for which you had to apologise; twice in 2017 and three times in 2018 and we are only May! Are you capable to fix it?
#Zuckerberg | You said you will apply the new #GDPR, but are you telling the truth? Since the outbreak of the #CambridgeAnalytica scandal, you transferred European data of non EU citizens to servers outside Europe, which is forbidden.
Mon italien est un peu rouillé mais en gros on introduit l'audience et on fait un petit rappel sur l'affaire #CambridgeAnalytica. J'espère qu'on va vite switcher en anglais ^^ #Zuckerberg
A.Tajani qui Préside le Parlement EU, après un petit rappel des faits et un point sur les risques (avantage politique sensible, fake news, divulgation d'infos perso) indique que l'idée est de légiférer et agir pour réguler les activités de FB (abrégé et tronqué) #Zuckerberg
