What do three members of Congress have in common with Tucker Carlson, Rudy Giuliani, Ali Alexander, and One America News?

Russian interference in the 2020 election. (Thread)…
In reviewing today's #RussianReport, I pinpointed ties between Russia's 2020 interference and U.S. figures & organizations. Some of these people appear to have been directly involved in Russia’s efforts. Others are connected indirectly. In some cases, that line is blurred.
Direct Ties: Rudy Giuliani, Roger Stone, Michael Caputo, Kash Patel, Sen. Ron Johnson, Sen. Chuck Grassley, Rep. Devin Nunes, Ali Alexander, Jack Posobiec, Stop The Steal, and One America News Network.

Indirect: Paul Manafort, Tucker Carlson, Tulsi Gabbard, and Jill Stein.

While I'm at it, let's revisit my memes collection.
I have to say that, when I did this one, turns out I was less optimistic than *the Telegraph*. ImageImage
This, I got to say, was and still is spot on.

One thing has been bothering me about #RussianReport.

The report speaks eloquently of Russian 'disinformation warfare', and there is indeed lots of evidence that this is Putin's modus operandi. 1/6
The report then - rightly - castigates the Govt for turning a blind eye to Russian interference. For example, re the Brexit referendum, the Govt didn't find evidence, simply because it chose not to look. 2/6
But... the report, and indeed much of the subsequent commentary, doesn't make the next - to my mind far more damning - step. 3/6

#RussiaReport The fact that all over the world it is clear that Russia was interfering with the Democrat process of countries the continuing failure of HMG to task our intelligence services to investigate their likely attack on UK is sign of continuing corruption in UK politics.
2/ The ludicrous position of HMG that there is no evidence of Russian influence on Brexit election etc is unsustainable where the #RussianReport main criticism is that they deliberately failed to investigate despite being clear had tried to influence Scottish referendum & US DMC.
3/ The highlighting by #RussianReport of massive Russian oligarch funding of British politics is a massive hint that there is a connection between such funding & election influence desperately needing formal investigation. Anyone who rejects this needs to be treated suspiciously.

In 2016, mafia expert @robertosaviano said the UK is most corrupt country in the world.

"90% of the owners of capital in London have their HQs offshore. Leaving the EU gave Qatari societies, Mexican cartels & Russian Mafia even more power."
World beating!

The UK has approved £232m worth of exports with potential military use to Russia since the Salisbury poisonings.

In 1st quarter of 2020, most of the £61m of products approved were for "info security equipment" & goods for "cyber defence". @declassifiedUK…

Investigative journalism is difficult, expensive, exposing, legally risky.

And zero point in doing it if nothing *actually* changes

A short thread to explain what @allthecitizens is trying to do.

1) Use James Bond to make people pay attention

2) Provide a platform & resource for solid evidence-based journalism.

This was honestly an amazing panel on a hugely important subject at a critical moment: @CatherineBelton @anneapplebaum @Billbrowder @ProfessorShaw @lukeharding1968…
3) Find more creative ways of getting the story out. Not everyone reads @guardian. And v few people really understand how implicated Boris Johnson is in the #RussianReport

Huge kudos to @lisemayer & @rorybremner for this.

"Has there been Russian money funding the Conservative Party in this campaign?"


Of course the very specific framing of the question by @AndrewMarr9 allowed @BrandonLewis to escape relatively unscathed.... this despite Lewis' own connections to Russian donors being in the public domain....


@PeterKGeoghegan @openDemocracy…
@AndrewMarr9 @BrandonLewis @PeterKGeoghegan @openDemocracy Lewis states the #RussianReport will be released post #GE2019

@DominicGrieve1 was very skeptical about this ever happening.

'Sources close to the Intelligence and Security Committee say only a threat to national security can justify redacting names.'…

The UK’s intelligence agencies were aware that Donald Trump may have been compromised by the Kremlin but Theresa May’s Gov – including then-foreign secretary Boris Johnson – chose not to pursue the matter for fear of offending the US president, a new book claims.

They knew.

They knew.

The politicians refused to act. As they are now #RussianReport
Simpson said Russian influence had wholly “compromised” the British political establishment. “There is a wilful blindness and determination to look the other way. ....
.......No-one in power wants to have that conversation,” he warned.”
