1. I reported on #Zarrab case starting with his Miami arrest in 2015. Based on knowledge of the way the new indictments are handled on line, I conclude there are more coming and from the one released by #SDNY re Turkey’s state owned Halkbank, and references to Erdogan and
2. his son-in-law plus the disclosure of apparent super top-secret #702FISA intercepts of Erdogan going back to 2013, I predict the sealed #SDNY indictments include ones for Erdogan and his family. And I think that @vp @WHNSC @SecPompeo are

Both @RudyGiuliani and the #SDNY US Attorney Geoffrey Berman worked for #Turkey’s foreign agent firm Greenberg Trauig. Both should be considered Turkish agents for times relevant to current cases.…
@RudyGiuliani 2. If GreenbergTraurig LLP @GT_Law was fined by @treasury for charged for working for ISIS/Turkey during time @SDNYnews Berman & @rudlyGiuliani were there, would Rudy and Berman still be liable under the terms of the LLP agreement? I think they would. If so Berman has to recuse
3. from anything Turkey related but he didn't recuse with Atilla. Doesn't he have a potential economic interest in the Giulian case that will involve Turkey via Mehmet Ali Yalçında? Right @IvankaTrump? 😎 @NewYorkStateAG @NewYorkFBI @FBIWFO @maddow @Lawrence @MSNBC

1. The Natalie Sour Edwards case that I have reported links the RNC GOP and Trump 2016 campaigns to Russian money finally woke up. It's been several months of no activity at all. Then just now the USA sent the judge a Classified Information Procedures Act ("CIPA) stipulated
2. protective order to sign. Unless Barr or somebody else put the SARs under a classification this looks like something else. Some reminders: It is a Trump related #SDNY case that US Attorney Berman should be recused in but isn't.
3. And the defendant is mid-level #FinCEN employee who is represented by Ben Brafman the same lawyer who represents Harvey Weinstein and other very rich clients. It's obvious that somebody is paying for her representation. I think it's likely the RNC and/or the Kochs.

1. IMO the big fear is coming tomorrow in NYC. #SDNY judge blew off Trump's demand to issue the order so Mazars has to produce Trump tax returns to Manhattan grand jury tomorrow. Trump needs to try to get a stay to fix Trump lawyers clear malpractice agreeing to the
2. terms of the stipulation that requires Mazars to cough up the returns tomorrow. Actually, @TheJusticeDept asking for more time screwed Trump #bigleague. IMO the D.A. already has @DeutscheBankAG copies of what was represented to the bank as Trump family/org returns but
3. Mazars actually filed the real returns and when they produce them it will be obvious and will prove Trump and his kids committed bank fraud with liar loans from @DeutscheBank. Fed time is 30 years each plus the NY time. That's why no golf today. IMO

1. Trump's insulting letter to the #SDNY notwithstanding it appears unlikely that the court will rule before 9:00 a.m. Monday so there is a good chance that Mazars will produce his tax returns to the Manhattan grand jury. There will be a mad scramble to get a 2nd Cir stay
2. but there is a problem for Trump. I think the 2nd Cir panel in the @DeutscheBankAG case has the returns or at least what Trump told the bank were his returns. Justice Ginsburg is the SCOTUS 2nd Circuit justice so emergency stays are supposed to go to her.
3. Trump may try to get one of the conservative justices teed up to try to save him. For them it's a risky thing. We can impeach the justice for an ex parte communication. So I'm not sure any justice will be helpful. Especially with Trump starting to look

1. In #SDNY Manhattan grand jury case, Trump files notice that he intends to appeal if the court does not rule by Monday at 9:00a.m. @MADDOW @lawrence…
@maddow @Lawrence 2. The Court's order is fascinating:
ENDORSED LETTER addressed to Judge Victor Marrero from William S. Consovoy dated 10/4/2019 re: President's pending motion. ENDORSEMENT: With the filing of the letter above in the public docket of this action, the Court has closed
3. the record of this proceeding. The parties are directed to refrain from mailing any further submissions. Any other papers filed will not be endorsed. (Signed by Judge Victor Marrero on 10/4/2019) (jwh)

1. The @GOP took Russian money. That's what we should be talking about. Trump, Barr and Berman are concealing #SDNY FinCEN case that leaked Russian money. Press should ask every member of @SenateGOP 2016 cycle below if they took Russian money.

3. I was watching Trump and GOP money in June 2016. They were both broke. #KochBrothers wouldn't pony up. So Trump team meets with the Russians and the money came rolling in.

Here is Trump's May 2016 report before Trump Tower. $45 million loan and insolvent cash flow:
