1. In the Parnas el al. case in #SDNY, the USA submitted an agreed protective order. No CIPA language so to me it looks like this crew was not discovered via any FISA authority.
2. The Protective order is starkly contrasted by the Natalie Edwards order that was chock full of CIPA language. Plain vanilla protective order.
3. The case is moving at a pretty fair speed. You have to wonder if there are plea discussions

Americans should not let a Turkish jihadist defile our @Whitehouse. One million peaceful US patriots should march on Washington if Trump does not cancel Erdogan's trip in 48 hours. After that the march should go forward even it he cancels. @SecretService @DCPoliceDept
@WhiteHouse @SecretService @DCPoliceDept US prosecutors should arrest Erdogan if he comes here. Genocide and other war crimes have no immunity. And #SDNY is on to him.
@WhiteHouse @SecretService @DCPoliceDept Reported Berman sought Erdogan's bank records in Switzerland, Qatar, Malaysia, Italy, Singapore, China and Hungary. I hunt hidden money. They got him. Any other account will likely pop in those banks. The nations could lose their ability to use US banks. They'll give him up.

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
