😨One day you're watching Putin's insane war, propaganda, smears, kompromat, blackmail. And seemingly overnight, you wonder what country you're in. Civilization's veneer is thin, folks. Thx to GOP, dicks like Pecker, Trump feel on top of the world & turning ours to💩😒
Blackmail by AMI-National Enquirer-David Pecker of @JeffBezos is a big deal b/c
1/ evidence of new crimes violates SDNY immunity agreement re Trump’s hush payments, 2/ extortion may be BOTH for Trump AND Saudis over relentless WaPo coverage, incl of Khashoggi murder. #Maddow
@JeffBezos 💯THREAD: It's Democracy vs Autocracy. Bezos-National Enquirer/AMI story is the autocratic alliance at work to silence critics, co-opt journalism, torpedo truth, break rule of law & democracy. Trump/GOP align w/ Saudi & Kremlin autocrats, use fascist tools & propaganda for power.
Teri's right. It's hard to wrap our heads around that AMERICANS would gut democracy for autocracy. But Trump is the clearest sign GOP's done it. For power & money, Republicans have propped up a corrupt fascist POTUS who got to the WH w/ foreign tyrants' help. Help that is repaid.
Putin & MBS weren't high-five-ing ecstatically for nothing. This happy slap was just weeks before the National Enquirer published the Bezos hit job. With its post Trump adm "Democracy Dies in Darkness" slogan & reporting, @washingtonpost is prime attack target for these autocrats
@washingtonpost Pull on this THREAD >> Bezos-WashingtonPost-Khashoggi-Saudi regime-National Enquirer-AMI-Pecker-Trump. A whistleblower told @iyad_elbaghdadi in Oct (Putin hi5 in Nov) of MBS plans to target WaPo w/ blackmail—a classic tool of control & menace by autocrats, welcomed by this POTUS.
