"In the mid-1990s, Ross led a group of investors who bought a large stake in News Communications, a publicly traded media co that owned 23 weekly newspapers in...NY and D.C."

News Communications Inc. publishes The Hill - was Wilbur Ross involved in this?
"...unbelievable emails in this same evidence pile that...get into communications w/ a US Senator..."

Inhofe?

9/19/12 "Resolution - Calling for the release from prison of former Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko"

congress.gov/bill/112th-con…

Subj: re an urgent request
From: [D1]
Date: 9/19/12 9:28 AM
To: Gates
cc: Manafort; [D2]

"And [Hapsburg Member] ALSO happy to speak to Senator [redacted] and ask him to delay or tone down or stop the resolution."

15:25 Gates wrote: "On it. Thank you."

Date on email and on Resolution MATCH.

Resolution by Senator James Inhofe:

congress.gov/bill/112th-con…
Who was the Hapsburg group member on the email? Prodi? Members:

Thinking it was Prodi:

"Mr. Prodi’s representative...was Glenn Selig...In 2017, Selig became spokesman for Mr. Gates."

Inhofe makes an appearance in #TheFamilyNetflix:

"Fellowship-affiliated congressmen seem depressingly EAGER TO EMBRACE STRONGMEN under the pretense of Jesus’s name. Senator James Inhofe tells the Nigerian dictator Sani Abacha that he “loves him.”

theatlantic.com/entertainment/…
"In its third episode, #TheFamilyNetflix explores the recent ties between the Christian right and Vladimir Putin’s Russia. (Doug Burleigh, one of the Fellowship’s current leaders, was interviewed by the FBI about his dealings with the convicted Russian agent Maria Butina.) "
The fourth [episode of #TheFamilyNetflix] details the Fellowship’s previous relationships w/dictators, and its ongoing attempts to enforce “Christian” and anti-LGBTQ policies in countries such as ROMANIA, w/gay marriage in the US seeming at this point like a lost battle... 👀
"Along the way, Fellowship-affiliated congressmen seem depressingly eager to embrace strongmen under the pretense of Jesus’s name. Senator James Inhofe tells the Nigerian dictator Sani Abacha that he “loves him.”
ANYTHING is acceptable in #TheFamily:

"Rep Mark Siljander travels to Libya, where he asks Qaddafi for forgiveness for the U.S. bombing that killed his daughter. (Siljander was later sentenced to a year in prison for accepting stolen funds from a charity w/ties to terrorism.)"
Back to the Inhofe Resolution - "Calling for the release from prison of former PM of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko"

intro'd: 5/17/12
amendment: 9/19/12
passed: 9/22/12

(IF this is the correct Resolution)

congress.gov/bill/112th-con…
Senator Inhofe:

"Inhofe campaigned for his Senate seat in 1994 using the phrase "God, guns, and gays."

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Inhof…
"Inhofe has made multiple foreign trips, especially to Africa, on missions that he described as "a Jesus thing" and that were paid for by the US gov. He has used these trips for activities on behalf of #TheFellowship, a Christian org...."
"Inhofe has said that his trips included some gov't work but also involved "the political philosophy of Jesus, something that had been put together by DOUG COE, the leader of #TheFellowship ... It's all scripturally based." Inhofe used his access...to pursue religious goals."
"Early during the Republican Party presidential primaries in 2016, Inhofe endorsed fellow Republican John Kasich.[116] Since Trump's election, he has voted 94.2% of the time in line with the President's position."
"In the aftermath of the 2017 Las Vegas shooting, Inhofe blamed the "culture of sanctuary cities" rather than lax gun control legislation for the shootings."

WTF
"In 12/18, Inhofe bought $50,000 to $100,000 worth of stock in Raytheon, a major defense contractor that has billions of dollars' worth of contracts w/the Pentagon. The week before, he had successfully lobbied the Trump admin to increase military spending.... "
"Ethics watchdogs said the purch raised conflict of interest concerns, and noted that members of Congress are not allowed to purchase stocks on the basis of information that is not publicly available...."
"Inhofe sold the stock shortly after reporters asked him about the purchase. He said the purchase was made by a third-party adviser who manages Inhofe's investments on his behalf."
Wrapping up: Inhofe's pro-fracking, climate-change denier, signed a letter urging Trump to withdraw from Paris Agreement.
Snowball guy.
(Stopping for now)
(I lied. When I was originally looking at LB's thread last year, this had not dropped yet):

Manafort Memos Reveal Influence Campaign

rollcall.com/news/politics/…
"Federal investigators seized the four-page memo during a search of Manafort’s home in Virginia in summer 2017 and prosecutors included it among 13 as proof of a conspiracy charge against the man who would later become President Donald Trump’s campaign chairman."
"But those memos provide an unusual behind-the-scenes glimpse into the surreptitious work that some operators use to influence Congress and the U.S. government on behalf of foreign interests — from the perspective of one of those operators."
"The Senate passed the resolution, introduced by Sen. James M. Inhofe, R-Okla., on a voice vote in the early morning hours of 9/22/12. But the issue brewed for some time before that as part of a broader Washington fight over Ukraine policy."

Subject was Inhofe's Resolution
Now I'm done, lol.
Oh, Senator James Inhofe - that MF is in a shit-ton of T R O U B L E . ✌️

Like, leave the country now, visit your favorite African dictator, permanently, Jimmy, trouble.
