Interesting question. From an intriguing, inside perspective.
Let's see what some folks dug up on Sinclair last year.
"The WHY of Sinclair"

Here she is last JULY - on top of the Sinclair disgusto-ness, before discovering a bunch of shadiness at NYTimes.

Whatcha been up to, Erik Prince?
Let's see what the #PanamaPapers leak has to show. You remember that, right? The big leak, of all of Putin's offshore LLCs - and those of the transnational organized crime empire, from which he takes his cut?

#NiravModi is just tip of the iceberg. It is a well-known fact that diamond trade is used for money-laundering & that this channels are used to finance terror activities around the globe including in India. Just check the #BlackMoney list from #Belgium?
greatgameindia.com/of-diamonds-an…
So now that media is waking upto #NiravModi's #Belgium connections important question that should be asked is who are these diamond merchants & how many of them are in the #BlackMoney list? Dont be amazed if you find barons on the list financing bollywood.
#NiravModi was setup by London auction houses of Christie & Sotheby involved in auctioning of ancient Indian idols & manuscripts stolen by East India Company spies & hoarded in the storeroom warehouses of British Empire's officers. This goes on even now & is a $5B black market.

The Intercept has obtained DMs from a private Twitter group with @WikiLeaks and its most loyal supporters. It includes:

- A desire for GOP to win the 2016 election
- Trolling
- Anti-semitism
- Rampant misogyny, sexist attacks on feminists
- Transphobia

One of the members of the group, Hazelpress, archived it to leak to the media after news broke that WikiLeaks was secretly talking to @DonaldJTrumpJr, urging Trump to reject election results as rigged if he lost, asking Trump to get Assange an Australian Ambassadorship
The archive spans May 2015 to Nov 2017, includes over 11k DMs, over 10% written by @WikiLeaks. We've published excerpts. documentcloud.org/documents/4378…

A yr+ of digging, & I've found a sh*t ton. Some on characters that I haven’t exposed. Frankly, b/c there’s only so much time in the day.

While everyone was understandably focused on #AwanGate, #OIG, #FISAgate, #UraniumOne, and more, President Trump has unshackled the FBI and is hot on the trail of the Clintons' #ChinaGate scandal from 1996. Let's examine...
A #ChinaGate primer. Summary: pay-to-play bribes funneled from China to Bill Clinton's re-election campaign. Key players: Johnny Chung and Ng Lap Seng. But in the years since, it has morphed into something much larger. spectator.org/chinagate-and-…
In 2016, the #PanamaPapers exposed offshore shell games of the world's most notorious financial crooks. "Among them ... Chinese billionaire Ng Lap Seng, who was at the center of a Democratic fund-raising scandal when Bill Clinton was president."

In case you missed it when it was happening, would you like to hear a story about that time @WikiLeaks attacked brave investigative journalists for exposing Vladimir Putin's corruption?

Follow along. 1/x
In 2015 an anonymous source leaked a massive trove of tax haven data to the German newspaper @SZ. This was #PanamaPapers. It was an ABSURD amount of data. So SZ enlisted help from an international network of investigative journalists @ICIJ, who shared it further
In all, reporters working at over 100 media organizations, in 25 languages, collaborated on #PanamaPapers, and reported on dozens of huge scandals around the world. One of these partner organizations is @OCCRP, and does reporting on organized crime

I don't study economics, but I do study terrorism, and 'demonetization will end terrorism finance' was one of the most ridiculous bogeys of the entire exercise. #DemonetisationAnniversary
The whole idea of fighting terror finance has been an abject failure in global discourse, not just in India's case. A shift to hawala movements have worked for global terror groups.
Terror finance moved away from intl financial systems long ago. Currency does not matter that much. Terror attacks are not 'expensive', not anymore anyway.

#PanamaPapers was so 2016. @ICIJ, @OCCRP, @SZ, and so many other partners have got a new leak for you. Here are the #ParadisePapers. /1
In the 21st century, money crosses borders more easily, and with less oversight, than people. Read these stories to learn how this works. /2
The leak consists of millions of documents from two offshore law firms. /3
