Trump’s sanctions against #Turkey result largely from Erdogan’s purchase of #S400 from #Russia. Interestingly #India too signed a deal worth $5.4 billion with Russia for S-400 in 2015. If US decide to sanction India, Reliance Defense may be destroyed. greatgameindia.com/the-s400-deal-…
Purchases from #Russia attract US #sanctions under the #CAATSA Act.

The US can issue waivers but only on a transaction-to-transaction basis.

The US still has NOT given #India a waiver on this #S400 deal despite requests. greatgameindia.com/the-s400-deal-…
Guess who is the main offset partner for the #S400 deal between #India & #Russia?

Yup - it’s Anil Ambani’s Reliance Defense.

Ambani signed a contract with Russia’s Almaz-Antey which makes S-400 potentially worth $6bn. greatgameindia.com/the-s400-deal-…

🚨BREAKING: @realDonaldTrump pressed Rex Tillerson to help persuade DOJ to drop a criminal case against Rudy Giuliani's client, Iranian-Turk Reza Zarrab, charged w/evading US #sanctions against #Iran.

Rexxon refused b/c it was ILLEGAL & Zarrab cut a deal.
bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
@realDonaldTrump Zarrab cut a deal and testified that a Turkish state-owned bank laundered BILLIONS for #Iran, helping them evade #sanctions, and Erdogan knew of and supported laundering cash for #Iran.🤬

Turkey has so far managed to avoid US penalties over the sanctions-evasion scheme.🙄
@realDonaldTrump More LIES and projection by Trump, who falsely accused @BarackObama of being "soft" on #Iran, yet Trump has schemed to give #Turkey (and his pal Erdogan) a pass for helping #Iran launder BILLIONS, in direct violation of #sanctions.

Total #corruption.🤬

Urging Calm Amidst Hysteria On #Turkey #Syria- 1- Without explicit green-light from #USA it will be a very limited (for show) maneuver; 2- This is being used here in #Turkey for temporary political gain (uniting the opposition with current admin); 3- #Russia also has put limits
Take in the macro picture (Forest instead of the trees): A major offensive by #Turkey is opposed by: #USA #Syria #Russia & #Iran. Only a brief limited muscle-flexing show is allowed. #GeopoliticalTheater
Here it is #Turkey “Still Preparing”. For the last 5 days, 1 minute they say “we are going in shortly, as in the next 24 hrs”, the next minute “we are preparing” or “we are waiting for XYZ ...”. The written on stone “Sep 30” deadline in #Syria expired 9 days and 11 hrs ago.

No but I was and my husband was. He was blinded and almost killed fighting terrorists. So I have a good idea how terrible war is and don't want one. However, I know that ISIS, al-Qaeda, and other organizations never tire of fighting or wanting to target the west. I'm not saying
war but I am saying not to forget that we can't just walk away from people who want to destroy us and our way of life. They have no problem waiting for us to get too tired of war - and just when we think everything is fine they will strike us again. Let's not give them
sanctuaries to strike us again from safe havens in #Syria #Afghanistan or anywhere. We have to be smarter and more patient. Also, let's not give Russia, Iran or Turkey the upper hand. #sanctions may work but we must be vigilant.

5/16/19: URN Prosecutor Says No Evidence of Wrongdoing by Bidens—inv’n focused on Ukrainian

9/9/19: 3 House cmtes inv Trump, Giuliani pressure on URN to hurt Biden's campaign

9/18/19 WBC broke

9/19/19 Biden op broke = disinfo, sources = GRU/TeamTrump

Get it?
💣BidenOp2💣

Anyone who ran with the Biden aspect re WBC was dupped by TeamTrump front-facing much worse scandals.

The Biden disinfo is not an ‘urgent’ NatSec issue, duh! It’s old news.

@nyt @washingtonpost @wsj @cnn @msnbc: You just aided GRU/Trump’s Biden smear campaign.
💣BidenOp3💣

Biden aspect of the WBC disinfo — meant to smear Biden. RT hyped fake vid.

WBC may not be about URN, but cd re URN PP #Crimea #Sanctions

Did Trump pass doxxing info re US spies, Smolenkov & more key intel related to 2016 elex to Putin? #IO #Helsinki #G20 #G7

😨Ex CIA Bob Baer suggests the “urgent credible threat” in the whistleblower complaint (that DNI won’t give Congress) ”usually” has something to do w/ someone in White House setting up an illegal backchannel to a foreign govt, or some sort of corruption, discovered by CIA or NSA.
🚨>> Whistleblower complaint involves TRUMP’S communications with a foreign leader that included a “promise” regarded so troubling it prompted an official in the US intelligence community to file a formal whistleblower complaint with the inspector general. washingtonpost.com/national-secur…
In the weeks before the “urgent & credible” whistleblower complaint about Trump’s “promise” to a foreign leader, he had interactions with:
1) Russia’s Putin that WH initiated
2) 2 “beautiful” letters from North Korea’s Kim Jong Un
3) Pakistan’s PM
4) Netherlands’ PM
5) Qatar emir

🔥@FrankFigliuzzi1: Don’t be surprised if FBI counter-intelligence div is looking at that (Deripaska) aluminum factory deal in Kentucky. Why does McConnell for years just not want to hear the truth abt Russia? It just begs the Q: Is there a flow of money? Is there a compromise??
@FrankFigliuzzi1 @NicolleDWallace 🤯It's nuts that US lifted #sanctions for close Putin ally #Deripaska—who Manafort briefed during #Russia's attack! That #McConnell stopped a bipartisan effort to reverse it, then got a Russian alum plant in #Kentucky smells of corruption if not compromise.washingtonpost.com/politics/how-a…
@FrankFigliuzzi1 @NicolleDWallace 🤯Not only did McConnell push to lift sanctions for Putin's pal #Deripaska. But Mitch's Kentucky taxpayers must give the Russian oligarch's Rusal $15,000,000 to help Russia get a foothold in US economy! Of course, #MoscowMitch denies knowing about any "Russian investor."🤔#maddow

NEW: Trump initiated a call to Putin today. He offered US help to fight forest fires in Siberia, Russia media reports. (Probably didn’t chew Putin out for not raking Russian forest floors.)
🤔I wonder if Russia's tweet openly asking Trump to do its bidding (to get @twitter to unblock Russia's disinformation-spewing Embassy in Syria account) had anything to do with today's phone call to Putin.

ICYMI, yeah, that happened today⬇️
Trump called Putin today. In the midst of a brutal crackdown on dissent not seen in Russia in years, opposition candidates thrown in jail, their supporters beaten. Did Trump mention this horror? Apparently not. But Putin praised his “attentive attitude”👀 #DemDebate #PutinsPuppet
