News Analysis 🔎 Accusations against President Trump that he used his office to pressure #Ukraine to investigate a political rival have renewed scrutiny of actions taken by the Obama admin in Ukraine between 2014 and 2016. (Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/ukraine-accusa…
The accusations by an anonymous #Whistleblower, 1st reported by @washingtonpost, center around the allegation that the president “pressured the Ukrainian president to investigate the son of former vice president Joe Biden.” whitehouse.gov/wp-content/upl…
@washingtonpost The #WhistleblowerComplaint—which has since been made public alongside the #Transcript of Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President #Zelensky—prompted @SpeakerPelosi to announce the launch of an #ImpeachmentInquiry.

1. There are a number of people who have earned a living as paid shills for the Turkish jihadists. Let's see that they all are investigated for #FARA violations. We need copies of propaganda pieces to turn over to @TheJusticeDept.
2. Also proof that their income comes from sources linked to Turkey. If they are paid they can be a proper targets IMO. Remember, Flynn violated FARA the day after the 2016 election. I reported last week's @washingtonpost Turkish govt propaganda piece lacking proper markings.
3. If you are a foreign government agent you need to register. If you publish their propaganda it has to include a warning notice that it is "informational materials." Fun fact the congressman who changed that wording from "propaganda" to "informational material went to prison

The directive to freeze UKR aid came in June.

6/5/19: Zelenskiy spoke with Kushner & Rick Perry at a dinner in Brussels.

Trump used Pence to tell Zelensky that U.S. aid was still being withheld while demanding more aggressive ‘action on corruption’

Rick Perry says he'll cooperate with Congress on Ukraine questions

The Ukrainians likely understood Pence’s ‘action on corruption’ code to include the inv’n of the Bidens.

Trump's erratic foreign policy is diminishing the US's standing on the world stage.

Pence’s NatSec advisor was on the 7/25 call & the VP should have had access to the transcript w/in hours

Trump’s use of Pence is part of a broader pattern of using both exec authority & high-ranking officials in his adm to advance his personal/political interests

A jury in Alexandria just returned verdicts of guilty against Mr. Rafiekian for "conspiracy & acting as an unregistered agent of Turkey." We note: General Flynn has cooperated with the government for two years. Obviously they did not need his testimony to get a conviction.
2. Significantly, the judge never even found enough evidence of a conspiracy to admit coconspirator hearsay. I remain very concerned about the government's abuse of power and over- criminalization of innocent business conduct. No one understood the statute, and Covington lawyer-
3. who did the #FARA filing with substantial coordination with the #DOJ--described the area of the law as "murky." 

The government could not articulate the elements of the offense, nor did it have any evidence to support it's own definition of what was "material."

💰Nader - Broidy UAE & Qatar

Schemes to buy influence in US foreign policy & legislate US sanctions against Qatar a US ally for monetary consideration
April 2, 2017 George Nader, wired $2.5M to Trump fundraiser, Elliott Broidy.

Nader paid the money to Broidy to bankroll an effort to persuade the U.S. to take a hard line against Qatar, a long-time American ally but now a bitter adversary of the UAE.
cbsnews.com/news/witness-i…
The money was wired to Broidy through a company in Canada in April 2017.

A month after (May 2017) Nader received the money, Broidy sponsored a conference on Qatar's alleged ties to Islamic extremism.

Americans are once again allowing the Republican and Democrat party divide us over race, when in fact race is not the issue! Please look at the foreign policies these woman support, and the policies they do not support! This is not about race & we must address the real issues!
@AyannaPressley, @RashidaTlaib, @IlhanMN, @AOC.

I ask for Americans to please look at the human policies these woman are addressing. I ask Americans to actually research the US Foreign Policy that causes massive Refugees and Endless War.
I ask Americans to look at who is funding the election campaigns of their representatives. I ask Americans to question why we are continously at war, when it does not benefit the United States! I ask Americans to research the foreign influence that controls US policy!

Michael Flynn’s Ex-Business Partner Points the Finger at Him in Court

"When questioning the Turkish govt’s influence ops in the U.S., the jury should look at the newly announced cache of evidence the gov't has on Flynn," Bijan Kian's lawyer said.

thedailybeast.com/michael-flynns…
"Kian instead worked on behalf of a Turkish-Dutch businessman named Ekim Alptekin, Trout said. (Alptekin is named as a defendant in the Kian case but will likely avoid appearance because he is living in Istanbul.) "
"According to a gov't indictment filed last year, Flynn and Kian worked together throughout the fall of 2016, when Flynn was an advisor to then candidate Trump, on a project to try and extradite Gulen back to Turkey."

Ukrainian Oligarch, Pavel Fuks, Claims He Was Victim of $200K Trump Inaugural Ticket Scam at the hands of a former NYGOP finance chair, Yuri Vanetik:

talkingpointsmemo.com/muckraker/ukra…
Fuks claims in a lawsuit filed in L.A. federal court Tuesday that he forked over some $200K for so-called VIP access tickets to Trump’s inaugural ceremony...

...when 1/20/17 rolled around, Fuks found himself abandoned. A car from Rep Rohrabacher“never came,”
"...leaving Fuks and his associates “walking in the rain to try to see the inauguration.”

The $200,000 they claim to have paid to Los Angeles-based lobbyist Yuri Vanetik never materialized in the form of tickets or access passes."

1/ Letter from @ChuckGrassley on point (#MAGA H/T)

Congress passed the Foreign Agents Registration Act in 1938 to unmask Nazi propaganda and identify foreign attempts to influence policy makers and the American public. But until recently, FARA has seldom been used.
2/ Only 15 violations have been criminally prosecuted since 1966, when the law was updated—and about half of those stemmed from Mr. Mueller’s investigation.

The small number of prosecutions is not owing to a lack of foreign influence. I first raised concerns about shoddy FARA
3/ enforcement in 2015, before Donald Trump launched his presidential campaign, when a former Clinton White House staffer and a lawyer for a Georgian political party failed to register as foreign agents.

THREAD: Important to note what is NOT in Bill Barr’s summary of the #MuellerReport, along with what is in it.

Barr says that Mueller uncovered 2 ways #Russia🇷🇺influenced the election:

☝🏼IRA’s disinformation/social media op
✌🏼GRU’s hacking/dissemination of Democratic emails
No surprise, Barr claims that Mueller says that Team🇷🇺Trump didn’t conspire DIRECTLY with IRA or GRU. But *no one* even alleged that they did.🙄

#MuellerReport

Note: Barr does NOT mention WikiLeaks/Assange (and why Roger Stone’s #indictment cross-references the GRU’s), Don Jr gleefully accepting campaign help from the #Russian🇷🇺government, @GOP platform change on #Ukraine, quid pro quo #sanctions-for-help deal.🤨
