>> BOOM >> Mueller has evidence Manafort shared polling data about the 2016 presidential election with Russian intel asset Kilimnik. And lied about it. His lawyers bungled redactions in filing and here we are. #TrumpRussia #Conspiracy #Collusion #RussiaGate #MuellerInvestigation
My favorite part so far (paraphrasing): OK, so Manafort shared [presidential polling data] with Kilimnik. But why assume he lied when he failed to tell Mueller? He just forgot! He was so busy! After all, he was running a US presidential campaign. He can't remember EVerything. lol
Not only is NO COLLUSION a big lie. There’s so damn much collusion, it’s more like TREASON. We learned today 1) Manafort met Russian agent Kilimnik in Madrid during campaign, 2) Paulie shared polling data w/ him, & 3) They discussed “Ukrainian peace plan.” While Russia attacked.
Manafort's Madrid meeting Kilimnik in Jan 2017 is no less damning than a mtg in 2016. We already knew they met during the campaign. Remember: The goal of PRE-election collusion was POST-election collusion. Indeed, Jan saw a WH push to end Russia sanctions—furthering a conspiracy.
#Manafort was sharing polling data w/ a Russian operative—while Russian operatives attacked our election. Why give internal info to Kilimnik unless to tell Russia where to direct their infowar? Remember, Manafort told Trump to go to key swing states in last days👇 #Maddow #Inners
I've long suspected Putin wouldn't have undertaken such an audacious attack on America's democracy w/o buy-in from Americans. Trump, Manafort, Jr, Flynn, Cohen, Kushner. They were begging Russia for help. I discuss in my piece on the Trump Tower meeting
🔥Polling data is a campaign's most valuable resource. Sharing it is opening a door to collaboration. It means working together. Making decisions together. Conspiring to destroy the competition—THREAD on #Manafort bombshell #TrumpRussia #Conspiracy
#Manafort news is a BFD: "if you've got Manafort sharing valuable and proprietary data with a Russian intelligence operative, and you've got a Russian hacking operation stealing the competition's (the DNC's and the Clinton campaign's) data…then you've got it all…GAME OVER"👇
>> Spring 2016: Manafort & Gates transfer Trump campaign data to Kilimnik, ask K to pass the data to 2 pro-Russia Ukrainian oligarchs—Serhiy Lyovochkin & Rinat Akhmetov. Russia’s massive propaganda operation on social media begins >>March 2016. nyti.ms/2H0YLzj #COLLUSION
It’s like a drinking game. Whenever I hear Manafort and oligarchs in the same sentence, I think of my clip of Paul lying thru his stuttering teeth to @NorahODonnell in July 2016. He knew exactly what he had done for Russia & Trump by then. #collusion
#Manafort transferring data to Kilimnik raises so many questions—on the US side of the operation too. Who gave him the files? Did the data originate from RNC? Cambridge Analytica? Did Kushner know? Parscale? Many people need to be questioned about their role in this conspiracy.
#Maddow: Why would pro-Putin oligarchs want prized internal campaign polling data? Why did a presidential candidate hire a campaign chair linked to the Kremlin? Why did Manafort send Russia data at the same time that Russia was targeting US electorate to swing election to Trump??
"It's incredibly illegal to share internal polling data. You can't even share it with a Superpac. How could they share it with a foreign adversary"—Republican pollsters just now re news Manafort gave Trump campaign data to Russian operative during campaign.@TheLeadCNN @jaketapper
Trump's pollster Tony Fabrizio is an associate of Roger Stone as well as Manafort (with whom he worked in Ukraine). Apparently Trump also tried to stiff his polling firm, so their relationship "soured." Mueller interviewed him in Feb 2018, via @CNNPolitics cnn.com/2019/01/10/pol…
Bingo >> #Manafort sharing polling data with Kilimnik explains how #Russia’s Internet Research Agency knew to focus its information warfare #propaganda campaign on targets in the very swing states Trump narrowly—and surprisingly—won—Michigan & Wisconsin. newyorker.com/news/news-desk…
Fabrizio polling firm has interesting client list: Republicans—good, bad, ugly, disgraced. Corporate and Christian interest groups. AND the RNC and the NRA are also clients. Manafort letting Russia get their hands on this data is truly infowar motherlode. fabriziolee.com/clients/
