1/ “This is one of the most serious Iran sanctions violations we have seen” - U.S. Justice Dept. official on indictment of Turkey's Halkbank on sanctions violations. Important development via @EricLiptonNYT
@EricLiptonNYT 2/ The charges against Halkbank come as Trump's administration "sought ways to project that it was taking a tough line with Turkey after Trump effectively signaled this month that the United States would not stand in the way of Turkey’s desire to send forces into northern Syria."
@EricLiptonNYT 3/ If the Halkbank case goes to trial in N.Y., it could mean a return to the witness stand for Reza #Zarrab, the Turkish-Iranian gold trader who pleaded guilty, has been cooperating with the U.S. and testified against a bank official, Hakan Atilla, who was convicted last year.

A properly functioning gov't engages in diplomatic relations w/ foreign gov'ts. Diplomacy is handled thru the US State Dept. using ambassadors who follow standard procedures. By turning to #Giuliani & his goons, #Trump privatized US diplomacy for his profit. That is #corruption.
Another way of putting it is that Trump made the benefits of US foreign policy accessible through pay-for-play. That is an abuse of power, which is a high crime and an impeachable offense.
Republicans rightly condemned Sec. of State Clinton for making US foreign-policy benefits available to nations like Saudi Arabia after they made generous donations to the Clinton Foundation. That was pay for play. Both Trump & Hillary are guilty of it & both deserve condemnation.

‼️Rudy Giuliani’s Year of Living Dangerously

Giuliani is busy effecting the Trump Adm’s shadow anti EU, anti NATO foreign policy, which ...

Wait for it...

Aligns with the Kremlin’s interests.
2018: Giuliani appeared in the former Soviet republic of Armenia, which has close trade ties with Russia. He was invited by Ara Abramyan, an Armenian businessman who lives in Russia.…
🔑Abramyan once helped reconstruct the Kremlin and also received a medal for “merit to the fatherland” from President Vladimir Putin of Russia.

Please amplify this short thread so media and Dem leadership see it. Can’t look at #Ukraine as a one-off. Trump has basically reduced the US Government to a family business with loyal kleptocrats. Giuliani not the only problem. Kushner too is freelancing against US interests 1/
#WhistleblowerComplaint says Ukraine is not first instance of hiding communications. We already know the Saudi interactions kept US embassy officials out of the loop and even used MBS’ security instead of ours. No ears to listen. What’sApp for texts 2/
Crime bosses use family to (usually) protect each other. Fixers like #Giuliani and #MichaelCohen play roles. But if you want to corrupt the entire government apparatus, you need apparatchiks who will play along. These people might not get confirmed. Voilà - “acting” appointees 3/

Of 235 #Dems in the House, 139 publicly support #impeachment investigation on #Ukraine allegations that #Trump personally & directly intervened in release of foreig#n aid $ to a “hot” war zone & raised investigating #Biden. Today I expect we will hear #Pelosi saying it’s time.
While the #MuellerReoort gave ample grounds for concern on #Trump campaign 271 contacts with #Russians, this is a case where #Trump admits undeniably dangerous behavior & obstructing Congressional oversight of it.
#Trump calls #Ukraine Pres 1 day after #Mueller testimony in Congress reduces #GOP fear of #impeachment.

Let’s take the Biden ’dirt’ hunt aspect out of the story & set it aside as a horrific diversion for now.

The truth is much worse.
