THREAD: In light of the Trump admin lifting sanctions on Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska's companies, recall that Trump's campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, conspired with Deripaska during the 2016 campaign with help from Russian intelligence operative Konstantin Kilimnik.
JUL 7, 2016: Manafort offers Deripaska private campaign briefings then meets with Kilimnik re the same on Aug 2.

AUG 11, 2016 email from Manafort's CPA: "Paul has indicated $2.4M in fees earned, but not yet received. Expected to be deposited Nov 2016 [post election?]."
JUL 29, 2016 email from Russian intelligence operative Kilimnik to Manafort [days after Trump accepts GOP nomination]: "I met today with [Deripaska]. I have important messages from him to you. He asked me to go & brief you on our conversation."
JUL 27, 2016 [2 days before Kilimnik's Moscow meeting with Deripaska]: At a Scranton, PA campaign rally, Trump proclaimed, “Wouldn’t it be a great thing if we could get along with Russia?”
AUG 2, 2016: Days after meeting in Moscow with Deripaska, Russian intelligence-linked Kilimnik flies to NY on Deripaska's jet to meet Trump campaign chair Manafort and share Deripaska's "messages" re Manafort's offer of private campaign briefings.
SEP 2016: Weeks after Russian operative Kilimnik flew to NY on Oleg Deripaska's jet to meet Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort, Deripaska secretly met with Russia's deputy PM Sergei Prikhodko & briefed him on how to "solve the issue with America."
SEP 2016: FBI agents made a surprise visit to the NY home of Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska and questioned him about whether his former business partner, Paul Manafort, had served as a link to the Kremlin during his time as Trump’s campaign chair.
ICYMI: In AUG 2016, following his ouster from Trump's campaign, Manafort sailed around Greece with Tom Barrack [and likely Kilimnik]. After the trip, Barrack hired Manafort & Kilimnik associate Rick Gates as Trump Inaugural Committee deputy chair.
Recall, in addition to Trump campaign chair Manafort & deputy chair Rick Gates, Russian GRU-linked Kilimnik also has ties to: BERNIE SANDERS' 2016 senior campaign strategist, Tad Devine and LINDSEY GRAHAM'S 2016 campaign manager, Christian Ferry.
