💥#Kavanaugh+#WilliamBarr confirmation: this is why Kavanaugh is there. By appointing his own judges and DOJ leads, Trump is applying the Kremlin’s pattern to silence investigation into corrupt presidents used by Yeltsin and Putin before. Thread. 👇
1. Method of installing loyal people in key positions and creating a network of support (“круговая порука”=“espirit de corps” or “mutual responsibility” is one of the defining features of a mafia state.) medium.com/@ZarinaZabrisk…
2. Trump is taking over the legislation system, judicial system and enforcement apparatus by installing loyal people in the key positions of power and creating a network of support.
3. Trump set a record for the most appellate judges confirmed in a president’s first year in office.democracynow.org/2017/12/27/for…
4. Trump appointed conservative Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch. Legal experts say Trump’s appointments to the lower courts will have the most impact on American life because they decide nearly all cases, ranging from voting rights & contraception to gay rights & immigration.
5. Trump’s nominee for the DOJ Criminal department position Benczkowski was confirmed by the Senate despite the fact that he didn’t have enough work experience & worked for a Russian bank close to Putin. Benczkowski refused to recuse himself from the Russian investigation.
6. With Kavanaugh confirmed, SCOTUS became Trump’s tool for usurping the power. (This is known to have happened in Russia, Hungary, Poland, Venezuela, and Turkey, among other countries, where the courts changed the constitution and extended the presidential term.)
7. SCOTUS & DOJ can stop the investigation Mueller investigation. Trump nominated Kavanaugh after the lawyers of a Russian firm connected to Putin and indicted by Mueller for interfering in the elections quoted Kavanaugh 9 times in a motion filed to remove the indictment.

9. The typical steps towards silencing and suppressing criminal investigation into the corrupted government election/activities in other countries involve the following steps (see next tweet):
(Photos: Turkey, Poland, Venezuela, Russia.)
10. → The strategic hires in the court system stop investigations and trials.

→ The public opinion is formed by the press working for the government.

→ Independent journalists and investigators are killed or exiled.

→ Protests are suppressed.
11.If Mueller's investigation is stopped, silenced, neglected or the public opinion is manipulated, democracy will turn into tyranny. I saw it happen in Russia in 1992, with Putin. Russians are instructing Trump to remove RBG for that very reason.
12. Trump is responding. politico.com/story/2019/01/…
13. Many pro-Kremlin sources (like Fox News, Russian oligarch-owned the Independent, etc) published the article with an identical headline "Lindsey Graham ‘hell-bent’ on replacing Ruth Bader Ginsburg."
14. Mueller's investigation in the current stage is mortal to Trump's administration and highly undesirable to the Kremlin. They will do anything to stop it and using lawfare (a type of hybrid war tool) seems to be an obvious solution for now. The press must clarify this.
