THREAD: The US @StateDept released its annual #ReligiousFreedom report today. From Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, here's where #LGBT issues come up in this year's reports.
#LGBT issues feature in this year's reports on Australia, Argentina, Bolivia, Canada, Costa Rica, Greece, Indonesia, Israel, Jamaica, the Maldives, Mauritania, New Zealand, the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Seychelles, Sudan, Syria & Turkey. (And I probably missed others.)
The report on #Australia stays pretty neutral in its discussion of the legalization of same-sex marriage and subsequent push for religious exemptions under Australian law. state.gov/documents/orga…

THREAD: In summer 2016, George Nader (representing Saudi Arabia & UAE) and an Israeli specialist in "social media manipulation" offered to help **THROW THE ELECTION** in a meeting w/Trump Jr arranged by Erik Prince‼️ 1/

nytimes.com/2018/05/19/us/…
At the Aug'16 #treason meet, Nader told Jr the crown princes of #SaudiArabia & #UAE were "eager to help his father win." The Israeli social media expert's (Joel Zamel) firm had already drawn up a multimillion $ proposal for a social media manipulation effort to help Trump.🤨 2/
Zamel's social media company #Wikistrat, which employed several Israeli former intelligence officers, specialized in "collecting information & shaping opinion through social media."🤨

Gee, that sounds familiar‼️🤬 3/

THREAD: Mueller has **at least FOUR DOZEN questions** on an huge array of subjects he wants to ask Trump to probe his ties w/#Russia🇷🇺 & whether he committed #ObstructionOfJustice‼️ 1/

#MuellerIsComing

nytimes.com/2018/04/30/us/…
The NYTimes **obtained the list of Qs that Mueller wants to ask Trump during an interview.🤨

It's VERY hard to imagine that details of the ACTUAL questions would leak, unless the negotiations btwn Mueller & Trump's lawyers have BROKEN DOWN (as I was told a few months ago).🤔 2/
Overall, Mueller's open-ended Q's attempt to penetrate Trump's thinking (good luck!), to understand Trump's motivation for his crazed Twitter posts & to examine Trump's relationships w/his family and his closest advisers.🤨 3/

🛑BREAKING🛑

THREAD: Mueller is probing #Wikistrat (a consulting firm founded by Joel Zamel & Daniel Green in Israel) for their work for the #UAE, as Mueller continues to investigate FOREIGN influence in DC.🤨

UAE means George NADER is involved.🤔 1/

wsj.com/articles/muell…
Wikistrats' Zamel "informally met" w/Team🇺🇸Mueller👉🏼asked about his business relationship w/Nader, who's a top adviser to UAE Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed & also was close w/Team🇷🇺Trump.

Zamel’s relationship w/Nader is “arms’ length.”🙄2/

Team🇺🇸Mueller also asked Zamel about his work, including for "certain clients," but the ultimate target of this line of inquiry is "unknown."🤔

If it involves the UAE, then you can bet that Secretary of Everything, Jared KUSHNER, likely is part of this inquiry.😉 3/
