This smells money-launder-y to me.
GoFundMe Is Refunding All $20 Million In Donations To Build Trump's Wall After The Plans Changed… via @davidmackau
cc: @MrFelt_ @LincolnsBible @WarfareNavel @SaysDana @emlas @mopeng @fiondavision "Kolfage said the nonprofit's advisory board included, among others, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, Blackwater founder Erik Prince, controversial former Wisconsin sheriff...
... David A. Clarke Jr., and Fox News contributor Sara A. Carter. Kobach confirmed his involvement in the project in a tweet." LOL ZOMG OMFG WTF
Oh hai.
ok so "WEBUILDTHEWALL, INC." is a "Domestic Nonprofit" in Florida.
The Registered Agent is "COGENCY GLOBAL INC."…
Here's the filing document.
Intriguing: A person on the filing is from @BTLawNews aka Barnes & Thornburg, in CHICAGO.…
Here's how wikipedia describes Barnes & Thornburg: "Barnes & Thornburg LLP is a large U.S. law firm and lobbying group with 13 offices located in the United States. It is currently the second largest law firm in the state of Indiana, and 90th largest in the US. "
That means we gotta look at the lobbying database. and the FARA database, to be thorough.
FARA first cuz it's my fave.
Ruh. Roh. Barnes & Thornburg has some **problematic*** (aka MOB-INFESTED) ciients.
Doesn't mean it's connected to the we build the wall crap, but notable.
Lobbying Database: holy cannoli they got a lotta lobbying clients. A LOT.
Here's some snapshots from the lobbying database.
Bear with me while I slice and dice all the data in a spreadsheet.
please hold!
(sidenote how do you think their Native American tribe clients feel about "We Build the Wall")
So by my count, there are 274 Registration filings for Lobbying Activity in the Lobbying Database for @BTLawNews 1999-now.
One of the more recent registrations was for Novartis, in APRIL 2018.
Novartis has ISSUES, y'all. This article is from MAY 2018:…
I feel compelled to point out that Barnes & Thornburg is the 90th-largest law firm in the US so I AM NOT SAYING Novartis is connected to We Build The Wall.
But what I AM saying is Barnes & Thornburg have got themselves some shady shady clients.
Novartis links to Michael Cohen bribery scandal. DIRTY. Novartis HIRED Barnes & Thornburg **after** they had paid Michael Cohen $1.2MILLION bucks. as a bribe. THIS. IS. SHADY. AF. YOU. GUYS:
Then WeBuildTheWall, Inc nonprofit company formation document has Barnes & Thornburg on the filing. And who all is involved with WeBuildTheWall?
This motley crew of traitorous asshats:
Barnes & Thornburg filed FARA papers for the Embassy of Hungary in NOVEMBER 2018. That's notable because Hungary = Orban = a Putin puppet, who gained his position of power with the help of GOP strategist ARTHUR FUCKING FINKELSTEIN.
Also of note, Barnes & Thornburg registered as lobbyists for Sig Sauer on January 24, 2017. @BTLawNews got $140k from Sig Sauer for lobbying in 2017, per @OpenSecretsDC
This article about Sig Sauer is from 2016. They are gross.…
This is the dude who is accusing Barnes & Thornburg of a conflict of interest, so pot and kettle meet, add salt, etc. but. still gross, and i'm curious to see how it shakes out; the IBJ article upthread was published January 11, 2019.
OK let's also look more in-depth at Barnes & Thornburg's ALBANIA FARA because i was apparently looking at these guys 20months ago:
Barnes & Thornburg filed Foreign Agents Registration Act papers for "Democratic Party of Albania" in APRIL 2017. Previous FARA filers for that same entity = dirty dirty Tony Podesta in 2016.
Nick Muzin filed FARA for "Democratic Party of Albania" in March 2017 (so just before Barnes & Thornburg filed). Joey Allaham filed in November 2017.
"But Lou, who are they?" They are them:
Ok WHO ELSE filed FARA for Democratic Republic of Albania? Um..BKSH did in 2009. (Who are they? they are them: Black, Kelly, Scruggs & Healey. Used to be biz partners with ROGER STONE & MOB MANAFORT)
OK final tweet before I put my ass to bed. Barnes & Thornburg's FARA for Democratic Party of Albania ended in 2017. Who did Dem Party of Albania hire after? Well, in 2018, these fuckers filed FARA paperwork:
