You have a big problem with your mansplaining thread. First, WE ALL KNOW Brennan setup a multi-agency task force and pressured a cointel op. Second, the FBI has a duty to inform the Trump campaign of federal investigations into ANY members [Manafort, Page, Papa], which they
did NOT. Third, look into who this Professor Mifsud is. You'll find some pretty damn interesting ties, like..to Alexander Downer. Downer was the Clinton protege who works for Hakluyt, an INTEL agency....See where this is going? Right back to Brennan, Clinton, Obama...
Ntm, Manafort was wearing a wire during the campaign..just as Papadop,
and Carter Page (I wonder if there's any relationship to FBI Lisa Page?) were monitored...Oh but we can't talk about that FISA, so let's move on to how Manafort was represented by the most corrupt, shady law

Thanks to Stormy & @MichaelAvenatti, we now have a much greater understanding of how Trump's Michael Cohen-based #PayToPlay funnel works.

It looks a lot like Cohen was selling access & influence.

#TrumpRussia - #KleptoWatch💰

THREAD 1/9
2/9 Avenatti's investigation has uncovered numerous payments to Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, from individuals & entities seeking favor from or access to President Trump. #PayToPlay #FollowTheMoney

3/9 Viktor Vekelsberg is a Putin-connected oligarch recently questioned by #Mueller as part of the #TrumpRussia probe.

$500K transferred between Vekelsberg's US subsidiary company & Cohen raise significant questions about Putin's influence on U.S. policy.

Is a mysterious British private spy firm linked to a series of “collusion” stings on the @realDonaldTrump team? Is HAKLUYT the "British Fusion GPS"?

(BIG) THREAD
The British end of the 2016 "sting" campaign against @realDonaldTrump is unlikely to get a mention in the first @JusticeOIG report from IG Horowitz, due out #soon. @DevinNunes @HouseIntelComm reports haven't focused on this potentially huge story much either. Let's take a look.
ALEXANDER DOWNER’S 2016 "chat" with GEORGE PAPADOPOULOS at the Kensington Wine Rooms about Cypriot JOSEPH MIFSUD & "Hilary emails" allegedly sparked the FBI's July 2016 counterintel investigation. DOWNER *initiated* that chat & even the @nytimes concede he may have been "fishing"

Mueller's questioning focused entirely on two officials from Team🇷🇺Trump who were indicted👉🏼Paul Manafort and Rick Gates.😎

Gates pleaded GUILTY to federal #conspiracy and false-statement charges and is SQUEALING to Mueller.🤗 2/
🔥A 2nd person "w/knowledge" of Barrack's interview said questioning was BROADER, including "financial matters" about the **campaign, transition & inauguration**.

As we keep saying, Mueller is FOLLOWING THE MONEY (ex: last night's Vekselberg story). 3/

The money is needed to payoff house and senate panels.
It also allowed him to sell a small portion of his fortune at the top of the market.

🔎 (1) #GlennSimpson worked with California Strategies and registered as a foreign lobbyist for Sheikh Khalid bin Saqr al-Qasimi of the UAE. While this isn’t new info to all they’re very curious details, this report claims $40,000 with his then company SNS Global #FusionGPS
(2) FARA documents by California Strategies show a payment of $55k to #GlennSimpson’s company. Should be noted CA Strategies is run by former Clinton staff including Chris Lehane (AKA Lewinsky smear)
(3) Here’s where is gets very strange Sheikh Khalid bin Saqr al-Qasimi allegedly hired all of these people to create better relationships with the U.S which obviously means paying #ClintonFoundation $50k while HRC is at the @StateDept 🙄

Skripal, a former Russian military intelligence officer sold out his country. He began working for the United Kingdom's MI6 in 1995 and passed on state secrets, such as the identities of Russian Intelligence agents.

This would be considered a serious crime by any country.
I think there is something very strange about the Skripal affair
Dec 2004, he was arrested by Russia′s Federal Security Service (FSB) and later tried, convicted of high treason, imprisoned, and given a 13 year sentence.
But in 2010 he was pardoned and released in a spy exchange🤨
Think about it. He (a Russian) was one of 3 spies released by Russia, in exchange for 10 Russian spies held by US in 2010 - and his release was at the insistence if the UK govt.

Why did the UK insist on his release. He was in jail since 2010.

1. How naïve was I to think that, while I didn’t vote for him, Obama wanted the best for all Americans while he was in office. #ObamaGate
2. How naïve was I to think that Hillary won the Democratic nomination fair and square and never tried to undercut Trump. #LockHerUp
3. How naïve was I not to look at Trump as a serious contender when he first announced his candidacy. #MAGA #TrumpTrain
