2/ Count One is Conspiracy to Commit an Offense Against the US. It is alleged that Russia, through its military intel agency (GRU) engaged in large-scale cyber intrusion operations and staged release of documents to interfere in the 2016 election.
3/ In paragraph 8, indictment alleges those charged “conspired with each other, *AND WITH PERSONS KNOWN AND UNKNOWN TO THE GRAND JURY*” —this implies there are *UNCHARGED CO-CONSPIRATORS*. Acts began in March, 2016. Releases began in June, 2016, continuing through November 2016.
Freedom Caucus member, Jim Jordan has fought tirelessly against the DC corruption. In this letter to @POTUS, Jordan urges #Trump to direct Sessions to give Congress docs in the FBI/DOJ 2016 election investigation.
🔥The Senate Intel Cmte probe exposed "a FAR MORE EXTENSIVE #Russian🇷🇺effort to **manipulate social media outlets to sow discord** and to interfere in the 2016 election and American society," than the Internet Research Agency (#Russian🇷🇺trolls) uncovered by the USIC. 2/
Bipartisan Senate Intel report confirms that #Russia🇷🇺intelligence not only hacked the #DNC, but also hacked BOTH @GOP & Democratic targets, including US primary campaigns, think tanks, & lobbying groups.🤨 3/
1. In 1987 it is believed that #Trump was recruited by #SovietUnion, specifically recruited by Kryuchkov head of First Chief Directorate, a division within the #KGB who's primary responsibility was to gather foreign intelligence
Carter Page is an FBI asset in Mar 2016 & yet somehow by Oct 2016 he is touted a foreign agent, acting on behalf of mother Russia, & deserving of a FISA Title-1 Surveillance Warrant to be monitored as if he were a terrorist en-route to the detonation site: theconservativetreehouse.com/2018/05/18/pre…
2. "Carter Page's an FBI asset & witness, who'd been responsible for busting a high level Russian agent; DOJ National Security Division & FBI Counterintelligence Division knew damn well Page wasn’t a Russian agent & flat-out LIED to the FISA court." theconservativetreehouse.com/2018/05/18/pre… …
3. The FISA surveillance authority over Carter Page was retroactive cover for DOJ & FBI surveillance on Trump campaign. Prior to the Oct 21, 2016 FISA Warrant, FBI was limited to using illegal searches of FISA(702)(16)(17) FBI & NSA data; & (cf NYT) “National Security Letters”.
The clandestine meeting with POTUS transition team happened 5 days after Qatar began closing on purchase of a portion of massive state-run Russian oil company on the same day Russian Ambassador ҜISLУДҜ was snuck into Trump Tower undetected.
Former Russian Ambassador ҜISLУДҜ visited Trump Tower the same day, according to House Intel Committee’s Minority Report.
Qatar Investments Director & foreign ministry director of communications Ahmed Al-Rumaihi boasted about an alleged payoff to General Flynn.
Secret meeting between 45 & Crown Prince of United Arab Emirates who didn't notify State Dept led Susan Rice to unmask surveillance of foreign dignitary & discover back channel to Putin via American mercenary boss Erik Prince
to RDIF Director Kirill Dmitriev in Seychelles Islands
Tonight's story: Qataris say Michael Cohen tried to shake them down for millions in Trump Tower 12/12/16: "Kuwaiti source claimed Al-Rumaihi told him that Cohen tried to get the money during a meeting which also included Flynn." He claims he refused... dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5…
1) Let's take this single source story with a grain of salt. 2) Even without this story, what are Qatari officials doing at Trump Tower 4 days after buying Rosneft, and then lending Kushner $184 million a year later? See timeline for all the Russia-Trump-Kushner contacts Dec'16.
THREAD: here's why the photos – posted by @StormyDaniels' rockstar attorney @MichaelAvenatti – of Michael Cohen and Misha Flynn with Qatari businessman Ahmed al-Rumaihi at Trump Tower are BIGLY bad news for Team🇷🇺Traitor. 1/
During Village Idiot Carter Page's testimony before @HouseIntelComm, @RepAdamSchiff got Page to admit he discussed the #Rosneft🇷🇺sale & dropping #sanctions w/the head of Rosneft's investor relations (Baranov) in July 2016, **5 months BEFORE** the sale‼️ 3/
THREAD/Timeline on the significance of #Qatar as alleged intermediary between Russia and Trump through Dec'16 Rosneft sale (from #SteeleDossier, revelations about Qatar-backed $184M loan to Kushner, and now from @MichaelAvenatti). 1/
2/ This timeline builds on the piece I wrote in March about Kushner and Qatar: #SteeleDossier alleges that in Summer 2016, Russia made a deal to sell 19% of fossil fuel giant Rosneft, then secretly funnel commissions to Trump insiders in exchange for sanctions relief...
Dec.1,'16: Flynn & Kushner met Kislyak at Trump Tower, propose a secret link with Kremlin thru Russian embassy.
Dec.8: Russia sells 19% of Rosneft to Qatar.
Dec.12: Today's allegation from @MichaelAvenatti: Qatari diplomat met Cohen & Flynn. Coincidence? slate.com/news-and-polit…
My take in @Slate: “What does Pence know, and when did he know it?” He’s calling for an end of the Mueller investigation out of fear. slate.com/news-and-polit…
“The Cohen news only heightens the risk to @mike_pence. Mueller has Cohen’s records, and may also have Vekselberg’s records. Vekselberg’s payments began soon after Flynn/Kushner contacted Russians. @realDonaldTrump, meanwhile, sabotaged sanctions—the quo in for Russian quid. 2/
3/ “Even if Pence didn’t know of a bribery scheme, he reportedly participated in the cover-up and the obstruction of the investigation. It makes sense for @VP@mike_pence to call for an end to the investigation: he’s an uncomfortable witness and potentially one of its targets.”
Viktor Vekselberg is a pro-Putin Ukrainian oligarch worth $13 billion. Through his company Renova, he holds a 5.5% stake in Bank of Cyprus, where Wilbur Ross served as vice chairman of the board until his confirmation as US commerce secretary.
3/ In January, Senator Feinstein sent a series of letters to various individuals requesting information about Trump-Russia. Her letter to Caputo requested “all communications concerning Vekselberg relating to Deripaska.” (feinstein.senate.gov/public/_cache/…)
98/ MICHAEL COHEN (PART 2) Let’s examine what that SDNY grand jury might be considering, in terms of Michael Cohen’s past criminal conduct. This is #NotAWitchHunt and political motivations are not driving this train.
99/ Cohen has used his position as an attorney to set up, purchase, and register properties for money laundering operations. Cohen has received millions$$ related to Semyon Mogilevich organised crime associate Viktor Topolov, tied to Cohen’s brother’s father-in-law, Alex Oronov.
1. #Trump's first known visit to #Soviet and #Moscow in 1987 looks to be part of a pattern. The #SteeleDossier says that the #Kremlin had been cultivating# Trump for “at least five years” before 2016 elections, meaning it asserts a beginning in 2011 or 2012.
