Adam Parkhomenko, organizer of #OccupyLafayettePark, volunteer DC cop & longtime Clinton operative, agreed to an interview but when he was ready asked to see my Twitter. "We got all kinds of people out here, RT and Sputnik, so I just want to check you out." Asked me to come back
Adam Parkhomenko refused to comment on whether he wants to "Maidan America Great Again."

"Thank you for your help," he told me.
Parkhomenko wants to "make Trump’s life hell" by continuing protests "until Donald Trump is gone," hoping he'll "flee to Russia like Yanukovych." Yanukovych was ousted during violent neo-Nazi Euromaidan protests. He's raised more than $100,000 for the #OccupyLafayettePark protest
I went to #OccupyLafayettePark last night but Parkhomenko didn't show. It was shark themed "because Trump loves Shark week," 'cause that makes sense somehow. While Adam advocates for color revolution online, protesters yelled things like "Sharks eat Russians!" & chanted "Sharks!"
From today, this guy told me his sign tells Trump to "go walk on a giant d*ck" in Russian. Another woman said Trump "kissed Putin's ass" in Helsinki. Parkhomenko has been holding demos outside the White House since Trump returned, for 11 days now.
Protesters chant "Treason" in Russian.
#OccupyLafayettePark protest MC wishes the FBI a happy 110th birthday. Protesters also repeatedly chanted praise of the Secret Service, which is, uh, odd considering their leader's goal is to oust Trump like Yanukovych.
#OccupyLafayettePark park protesters chant "Rachel Maddow!"
Parkhomenko derives thrill "from the hunt" of "the bad guy," Rob Baechtel, another DC reserve officer, said. Parkhomenko is issued a gun & has made 90+ arrests. Evidently, the irony of a volunteer police officer organizing an "occupy" protest is lost on the demonstrators.
We can also add Adam Parkhomenko to the list of people who think Russia is communist.
That moment when protesters mistook the sharks for Klansmen
They don't bite, but Mueller does
"Putin's puppet" chant
#OccupyLafayettePark protesters chanting "Secret Service!"
I wanna end on this note. I talked to some of these people. Most are misguided treason conspiracy theorists. Others are there, I think, because they oppose Trump for good reasons. One told me he voted for Bernie, protested at Standing Rock, & was only in town for the Nazi rally.
Overall this sh*t was a mess. Possibly more deranged than Adam Parkhomenko's Twitter timeline. Most of them are misguided. Others just care a lot & want to get involved however they can despite their differences. I don't mean to discourage protest but think it should be mindfully
RIP my mentions
So many rubles
Adam blocked me after I asked whether he's still volunteering with the DC police department and whether he stands by his tweet that he hopes Trump "flees to Russia like Yanukovych." I told him his demonstrators deserve to know
7 hours later and there are still a ton of people in my mentions calling me a traitor, lol
They seem to think I'm a (((Russian))) even though you can clearly hear me speak at the top of the thread
At least the Resistance's messaging is synced online and off. I guess that's one thing it has going for it.
The queen has arrived to like a tweet about me wasting my gift for language on serving 'pedophile Putin.'
By the way, this tweet Louise Menschevik liked accuses me of treason for working for Sputnik. The penalty for treason is execution. I've also had somebody tell me "we hang traitors in America."
Wow, the Resistance isn't racist at all!
Democrats: Trump's a Nazi!

Also Democrats: We're gonna need a Nazi movement to oust him!
