@peterschweizer #SquidProJoe & the #BidenProtectionMedia shoot ink jets at those who question #Biden’s threat (which he said was authorized by #Obama), to withhold a BILLION $ from Ukraine if they didn’t fire #Shokin, who says he was investigating #Burisma & #HunterBiden.
@peterschweizer #JoeBiden says he knows nothing about most of this.
Kathleen “requested that Hunter’s access to their joint assets be limited. They owed more than $300,000 in back taxes.”

@peterschweizer “I wonder where the hell that money is man because I’ve got to pay tuitions. God bless me!”
“He said my son made a billion dollars in China. I don’t know where the hell it is.”
Ask your son, #JoeBiden. Are you still paying for HIS tuitions?

Anyone who ran with the Biden aspect re WBC was dupped by TeamTrump front-facing much worse scandals.

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 theepochtimes.com/russian-spy-re…
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.

🚨Pentagon defunds European projects that deter #Russia to fund Trump’s wall, authority DoD gained when Trump declared the border a national emergency - The Washington Post washingtonpost.com/world/national…
#Maddow says #Trump has moved to systemically dismantle each of the 4 pillars of USG response punishing #Russia for its invasion & annexation of #Crimea:
1) #Sanctions
2) Aid to #Ukraine
3) Ousting Russia from #G8
4) European #Deterrence Initiative
EDI was defunded for the Wall
🔥Garamendi on diverting military funds for a border wall: WHAT IN THE HELL IS GOING ON BETWEEN PUTIN & TRUMP?! Cutting projects critical to secure NATO's eastern border in Estonia, Poland & Ukraine gives Putin a lot of leeway, tells allies US is unwilling to stand up to Russia.

"Trump's extraordinary promotion of Putin" — In move to soften #Russia's pariah status, #Trump advocated publicly & privately for #Putin at #G7 … amid warnings that Russia is actively trying to interfere in the 2020 presidential election. washingtonpost.com/politics/trump… h/t @McFaul
Spot-on description of Trump as #Putin’s advocate, apologist & promoter at #G7, working hard to soften #Russia’s well-deserved pariah status.
😲Trump even tried to redefine G7 as NOT a gathering of democracies. And became combative about democracy having no special weight‼️
There’s no good reason to reward Putin now. #Russia’s only become a worse pariah since annexing Crimea in 2014. Think Ukraine, Syria, Skripal, election ops.

We’d be fools not to view Trump inviting Putin to G7 as also an invitation to help him in 2020, as he did in 2016. #Maddow

Wow Putin is scared. #Russia TV did one of their propaganda “exposes” to discredit @CNN reporter @clarissaward as a spy b/c she’s investigating Kremlin secret Wagner army. She even interviewed a mercenary. Recall 3 well-known Russian journalists were killed investigating Wagner.
.@CNN reporter interviewed a Wagner mercenary—#Russia’s secret private army he says "does anything Putin says" to boost Russian influence & suppress American. Same group that seized #Crimea, operates in #Ukraine, #Syria, #Africa. Kept secret to give Kremlin plausible deniability.
.@CNN reporter found out first hand about KGB #Putin’s #Russia. Doing a story on Kremlin-tied Wagner mercenary private army, @clarissaward was followed, filmed, had a guy go thru her hotel room, and became the subject of a Russian #disinformation attack video calling her a “spy.”

Una breve storiella di politica europea.

Protagonisti: la #Russia, l'#Ucraina e il Consiglio d'Europa (che non c'entra nulla con l'Unione Europea, mannaggia a voi).
La #Russia non fa parte dell'#UE ma è invece parte del CdE, una comunità di 47 Stati, che comprende, oltre ai 28 paesi dell'UE, anche altre nazioni come Turchia, Georgia, Armenia e, appunto, Russia. Il Regno Unito continuerà a farne parte anche in caso di Brexit.
Fun fact: la bandiera 🇪🇺 non è nata come bandiera dell'UE a ma come bandiera europea nel 1955. E' stata poi adottata dall'#UE nel 1983/86.

[Questa neanche @LeoVenez la sapeva]

🚨🚨This week Spain will welcomed Russian Navy back into its ports for refueling and resupplying. The brand new corvette Vasily Bykov left Ceuta today. The U.S. should make it crystal clear to Spain that this is unacceptable. ceutaldia.com/articulo/puert…
The Vasily Bykov is based in the Black Sea and enables Russia’s continued illegal occupation of #Crimea. In April it was involved with tracking US Navy operating in the Black Sea ahvalnews-com.cdn.ampproject.org/c/s/ahvalnews.…
Last November it was reported that Spain was going to host 3 Russian warships in its ports but at the last minute did not go ahead due to international pressure. heritage.org/defense/report…

@bellingcat For 5 years #Russia's propagandists have denied responsibility for downing #MH17 w/ the now familiar #disinformation ad absurdum blitz. Today's @JITMH17 murder charges prove objective facts DO exist, truth CAN be known. May this be another nail in the Kremlin #propaganda coffin.

RECALL: BANKS: "In 12/18, So African intel officials confirmed to me that Banks, who owns diamond mines, had been the subject of two investigations by the Hawks....”

"This detailed @NewYorker investigation into Arron Banks, his Russian connections, and his opaque funding of the Leave.EU campaign makes an unanswerable case for a Mueller-style inquiry into whether the EU referendum was stolen."

This is Johann #Gudenus. A leading figure in the Austrian FPÖ and most likely the 1st member of a governing party in Western #Europe to send his emails from a mail.ru account - a Russian company with very close ties to the #Kremlin. But there‘s much more to it: /1
Gudenus is the mastermind behind the partnership agreement between the FPÖ & Putin‘s United Russia party, signed in 2016 - which includes a paragraph on Russia helping the FPÖ to draft laws. Also on the picture besides Gudenus: HC Strache, the current Austrian Vice-Chancellor /2
As a student, he lived in Moscow & studied international affairs - but not at MGIMO, which is the standard university for aspiring Russian diplomats. He studied at the Diplomatic Academy of the Russian Foreign Ministry, which also trains Russian spies & special operatives /3

#DemocracyNow #Israel #GolanHeights
Human Rights Attorney @4noura to Trump: “Israel Is Not Interested in the Golan Heights for Security.

#Syria #UN #Jerusalem #Trump #IsraelGate
I wish that @4noura had not compared Russia's annexation of Crimea to would be scenario of Trump recognition of #Israel's land grab of the #GolanHeights.
1. #Crimea held a public referendum and voted by a big majority to leave #Ukraine and another referendum to join #Russia.
2. #Crimea in its entire history bf 1954 (that's when Khrushchev unilaterally decided to give Crimea to Ukraine), had never & repeat NEVER in its entire history been part of Ukraine
At the time the transfer to was largely symbolic, as both #Russia & #Ukraine were part of the USSR

#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. dsnews.ua/politics/uchen…
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.

All 24 Ukrainian sailors captured by Russia FSB in #KerchStrait declare themselves "prisoners of war." They await trial in Moscow. #Russia's outrageous open attack on #Ukraine in int'l waters off #Crimea is a HUGE int'l incident. Barely a blip in US press. ru.krymr.com/a/news-zahvat-…
Reminder THREAD on Russia's recent attack on Ukraine—ramming, shooting & seizing ships & sailors in int'l waters. Its overtness shows a dangerously brazen & newly emboldened Putin. I bet Trump's meek response to such a major attack played a big role in Mattis' decision to resign.
Yes, Trump's Syria withdrawal was the last straw for Mattis. But Mattis' bold remarks & acts re Russia attacking Ukraine in Kerch Strait take on new significance given his resignation. Mattis condemned Putin as someone "we simply can't trust" & likely expected Trump to do same.👇

1) How can #Crimea be annexed/occupied when it was Russian since before #US existed? When there was no such thing as #Ukraine before Soviet Union? When Crimea was transfered ILLEGALLY TO UA in '56 without any referendum! When Crimea voted to return to #Russia since 1991!
2) Many don't know but it was in #Crimea, that #Russia was baptized into Orthodox Christianity faith in 988. Grand Prince of Kiev, Vladimir was baptized in Chersonesus. voltairenet.org/article182989.…
3) Before the #Russia during the reign of Catherine the Great annexed #Crimea, the Crimean Khanate, a Turkic vassal of the Ottoman Empire took hundred of thousands Russians and other Slavic groups into slavery! #Turkey #OttomanEmpire

#Ukraine’s on the verge of martial law b/c #Russia just seriously escalated its 4yo illegal war—blocking key Kerch Strait, firing on & seizing 3 Ukrainian navy ships, wounding 6 Ukrainian sailors—AND Trump attacks NATO & EU. Appalling, terrifying & expected of a #PutinPuppet.
