Mueller confirmed Trump accepted help from a hostile foreign power & lied & he lied when he claimed exoneration, & was not completely truthful in written answers.

He could be prosecuted after leaving office & that he misled Americans by calling the inv’n a hoax

Mueller’s testimony was full of bombshells.

Rep. Mike Quigley asked Mueller about Pompeo’s description of Wikileaks as a hostile intelligence service [GRU].

Do you think that is accurate?

Absolutely, Mueller replied.

‘And they got indicted, Mueller added’.

Mueller has not publicly indicted Wikileaks the org.

Mueller quickly corrected himself: “Uh – Julian Assange”.

‘But the DOJ didn’t indict JA for being part of a “hostile intel service” at all. It only charged JA for helping Manning hack into Pentagon computers’

Cambridge Analytica’s exploitation of private data from 87 million Facebook users is a significant piece of the conspiracy to defraud the US, UK French (?) electorates.
I haven’t seen any definitive reporting linking Brannon’s Far R The Movement & the use of CA, to help elect Le Pen, but it isn’t a stretch to imagine it was likely used to assist the right-wing effort to disaggregate the EU.

"During the call, KISYLAK asked FLYNN to set-up a VTC between President-elect Trump & Russian President PUTIN on January 21st"

"FLYNN volunteered that after the election, he had a closed door meeting with Kisylak & Jared KUSHNER at Trump Tower in New York City"

“FLYNN explained that other meetings took place between the TRUMP team and various other countries took place prior to the inauguration, and were sensitive inasmuch other countries did not want the then current administration to know about them.” #MbZ

"FLYNN described SERGUN as someone the U.S. could work with."

@peterbakernyt @maddow @griffwitte Orban has a lot in common w Trump, as I show in #HouseofTrump, in that both were allegedly compromised by Russian mobster Semion #Mogilevich.
2/In Orban's case, that took place in 1994 when, as a rising young pol in Hungary, he reportedly took large sums of money from a Mogilevich associate named Dietmar Clodo--and was videotaped in the act.
3/Orban, of course, went on to become Prime Minister of Hungary in 1998 after denouncing various "Moscow puppets"and pro-Russian projects as treasonous. But when he was elected again in 2010, he reversed field and become a Putin apologist.

1/Fascinating that AG William Barr should have $ ties to Howard Lorber's Vector Group. As I reported in #HouseofTrump, House of Putin, during his 1996 trip to Moscow, Trump was accompanied by Lorber and partner Bennett LeBow who had ties to very interesting people in Mosco
2/ LeBow, in turn, partnered w Vadim Rabinovich who had recent participated in famous Tel Aviv meeting of mobsters at which Ukrainian energy trade was ceded to mob boss Semion #Mogilevich.
3/ Once in Moscow, Trump, Lorber & LeBow were shown around by Mayor Yuri Luzhkov, who was also allegedly tied to #Mogilevich.

1/I, like McCabe, don't believe in coincidences either & one of the great untold stories is how McCabe's vast experience investigating the Russian Mafia repeatedly led him back to Trump Tower. @batchelorshow @FiringLineShow
2/As I write in #HouseofTrump, in Feb. 2013, two Trump reps allegedly attended a party given by Semion #Mogilevich at Ukraine Hotel in Moscow to celebrate bday of top mobster Sergei Mikhailov. Also, in attendance was Emin Agalarov.
3/Aras Agalarov has denied ties to Mafia, but his son Emin was, in effect, playing the same role Johnny Fontane had in The Godfather, entertaining the Mafia. Also, after Emin married the daughter of corrupt Azerbaijani president, they won massive lucrative contracts.

@tina_nguyen Yes. To be clear, as I reported in #HouseofTrump, House of Putin, if you want to #FollowtheMoney, this should be a key focal point.
The Mystery of Donald Jr.’s Blocked Calls—Revealed?…
2/One of the key people in question was Vadim Rabinovich, who, just a month before Trump's '96 Moscow trip, had attended a meeting in Tel Aviv, in which Semion #Mogilevich, the RU Mafia financial whiz, was ceded a huge part of lucrative Ukraine energy trade.
3/For many years afterwards, #Mogilevich operated thru series of "opaque intermediaries" in the Ukraine energy trade that skimmed about 3/4 of $1 billion per year.

1/Fascinating that "blocked #" phone call circa 2016 Trump Tower meeting went to real estate developer Howard Lorber who was much more than just a family friend. In '96, when Trump went to RU to try to develop Trump Tower in Moscow, Lorber came w his partner Bennett LeBow.
2/As per #HouseofTrump, LeBow had begun investing in Moscow in early 90s when one inevitably dealt w dubious characters--among them Vadim Rabinovich who had just taken part in Tel Aviv meeting giving Semion #Mogilevich control of lucrative Ukraine energy trade.
3/ In effort to develop Trump Tower Moscow, they were shown around by Moscow Mayor Yuri Luzhkov who was also close to #Mogilevich & Vyacheslav Ivankov(below), a murderous mobsters who happened to be a Trump Tower resident on 5th Ave and a regular at Trump's Taj Mahal.

4/ Then, not long after he returns from Moscow, a report surfaces saying the Soviets love Trump, & he starts to run for president in 1988. He takes out full page ads in WaPo, NYTimes, Boston Globe, putting for a foreign policy attacking NATO. ImageImage
5/By the early 90's, the FBI is looking all over Brighton Beach for Russian Mafioso Vyacheslav Ivankov, the henchman for Semion #Mogilevich and find he has a place in Trump Tower. ImageImage
6) Impt to remember that Putin has weaponized the Russian Mafia. They are state actors. As General Kalugin told me, the Russian Mafia was another arm of the KGB.

💥 There is a direct connection between the #Solntsevskaya Mafia and @IvankaTrump. Dasha #ZHUKOVA's father Alexander #ZHUKOV is KEY. 💥

The lede has been buried by way of incomplete reporting.

Let's connect the dots. #MOB
Ivanka Trump is a longtime friend of Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich's ex-wife Dasha Zhukova. Dasha is friends with Josh and Jared Kushner as well.
Supposedly, their introduction was made by the #spy for foreign intelligence Wendi Deng Murdoch.
