MY THREAD OF THREADS:
"Rudy, Ukraine, and the plot to fire Comey" -- 1/24/19
Giuliani became the Ukraine back channel after Sater/Cohen peace plan fell apart w/ Flynn's firing. Giuliani was supposed to get rich traveling the globe as Trump's "Cybersecurity Advisor", but bc of his TriGlobal connects, he ends up *the guy*.
By May, an arrangement was worked out by TGSV b/t Trump, Giuliani, Pavel Fuks, Kharkiv Mayor Kernes, FM Klimkin, Pres Poroshenko, FM Lavrov, and Pres Putin.
At first, the goal was just to re-establish secret peace plan negotiations.
May 9: Trump fired Comey to keep the plan on track. The back channel then became a way to pressure Ukraine re investigation.
May 9-10: Kislyak, Lavrov & UKRAINIAN FM KLIMKIN are in D.C. at the WH, as Giuliani meets w/ Tom Bossert.
Most of what I outlined above *would have been intercepted* by FBI & CIA just in the course of normal surveillance of foreigners (esp Ru/Uk traveling to US). This was part of what made Andy McCabe open an urgent counter-intel investigation!
Next they dealt in Poroshenko's guys. Giuliani flew to Kiev, met w/ Victor Pinchuk, Mayor Klitschko, & a bunch of gov't officials, incl Pres Poroshenko & Prosecutor Lutsenko (that's who they want to investigate Biden now.)
But back then...
"Rudy Giuliani met with Ukrainian President Poroshenko twice last year amid U.S.-Ukraine arms deal negotiations" -- 7/27/18
QUID-PRO-QUO = ARMS-FOR-SILENCE
I've described these circumstances to death, but basically...
Poroshenko was FUCKED! But so were Trump & Putin if Ukraine didn't stop investigating Manafort & cooperating w/ Mueller.
A long-sought javelin missiles order hung in balance.
Poroshenko gets the smallest of tokens from Trump, after months of cold shoulder. Trump agrees to briefly meet w/ him during his visit to the U.S.
Right after this, the investigation into Manafort is handed off to Lutsenko to "languish".
It became the model of how this backchannel operated. Giuliani out in front, w/ Trump & Putin's meetings formalizing "deals".
The parties “discussed ways to overcome Russian aggression & the course of reforms in Ukraine” and “noted special importance of Ukraine-USA cooperation in cyber security sphere.” 🧐🧐
Where do you think they got the idea from? This was the outcome of Giuliani's backchannel negotiations in May, July, Nov 2017 & Mar 2018!
May 9: James Comey fired
May 9: Giuliani, Lavrov, Kislyak, Klimkin arrive DC
May 9: GSS announces Kharkiv on website
May 10: All of the above visit WH
May 11: Trump posts "Let's Make Peace"
May 11: Bossert announces cyber EO
June 2017: Giuiani travels to Kiev, meets w/ oligarchs & gov't incl Poroshenko
July 2017: Trump meets Putin at G20
July 9: Trump announces "Joint Cyber Task Force" w/ Ru
July 19: Tillerson shutters Cyber Office
July 19: GSS back in Kharkiv
July: Ru Cyber Envoy Andrey Krutskikh tells media "joint task force" talks still under way but don't include "senior officials"
July-Nov: Trump stalls Ukraine's Javelin missile deal
Dec 2017: Trump approves $41.5M sniper system, javelins still on table
Mar 2018: Kharkiv delegation travels to US for 👏private tours of NY/NJ DEPT EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT👏
Apr 2018: Poroshenko confirms missiles received
Remember I said 👆 that days after Kharkiv delegation, Rudy traveled to a small rural hospital in NH to move 20M medical records to AthenaHealth Cloud?
Dr. Maria Ryan (an Iran nut) & her daughter then accompanied Giuliani on his world tour.
June 2018: Giuliani travels to Israel, Scotland, and France w/ Ryan.
It wasn't an affair - they were working together. I wrote about it here 👇
June 6 2018:
By now, Rudy's been paid by Kharkiv/Kiev since May/June 2017, negotiated an ARMS-FOR-SILENCE quid-pro-quo for Trump, gotten Kharkiv access to NY/NJ Emergency Mangmt, & participated in a medical data transfer in NH.
Time to party.🥳
Jun 7 2018: Rudy (w/ 🍸 hangover) visits Hadassah Medical Organization in Jerusalem.
I've detailed in threads/articles the relationship b/t Hadassah, Israeli gov't, Skolkovo Innovation Center in Moscow & Victor Vekselberg.
Hard to pick just one!
What was Rudy up to w/ his intn'l cybersecurity "advising"?
Based on my tracking of developments in U.S. cyber policy & info warfare tactics used in 2018 midterms, I believe he was setting-up the infrastructure & targeting.
July 2018: A delegation from Israel, Saudi, and Qatar arrives in Helsinki ahead of Trump/Putin Summit, hoping to land a "GRAND BARGAIN"
July 2018: Trump & Putin meet, Trump commits treason on the world stage
At this point, something bigger is going on w/ Trump's back channels then just Rudy's illegal arms negotiations & cyberwar hijinx.
And it involved energy.
Here you'll find Advisor John Bolton & Secretary Rick Perry enter the story line.
Oct 22: Giuliani in Armenia for cyber conference attended by Ru Officials, meets w/ Armenian Defense Minister & others
Oct 22: Bolton goes to Moscow to discuss nuclear missiles
Oct 24: Bolton goes to Armenia
After Helsinki in July, Trump & Putin announced plans to hold further talks in Paris in Nov, during France's celebration of the 100th Anniversary of WWI armistice.
They secretly did, & it's what I've been calling "TREASONFEST" ever since.
Nov 9: WH press pool travels w/ Trump to Paris
Nov 10: Trump cancels his schedule bc "rain" & stays at hotel
Nov 10: Press pool launders that lie, asks no Q's
🙏Thanks to everyone who's sticking w/ it to understand the full scope of the whistleblower's potential allegations.
As shitty as crooked arms dealing & cyber warfare is, it's prob not the intelligence matter that would create this level of concern. But when you're talking about giving away nuclear secrets...that's different.
This is also when McConnell & Murdoch meet.
Nov 10, 2018:
Meanwhile, across town Trump hunkered down in his hotel, "hiding from the rain" & "brooding" over his midterm loss.
Deals where getting done, he spent the day on the phone w/ UNNAMED world leaders. 🤷♀️
(I was pissed! 👇)
Nov 11: Trump/Putin attend memorial & lunch
Nov 11: Trump departs early, it "leaks" Nielsen fired
Nov 12: Paris Call signed by 50 democracies
Nov 12: Ukraine uranium tax law change
Nov 14: Senate stalls sanctions
Nov 15: Trump signs @CISAgov
Ukrainian politicians are caught on hot mic discussing "paying the rent" to the U.S. by passing new tax breaks for uranium enrichment. While in Ukraine, Perry met w/ mining companies he may be in biz w/...
I URGE EVERYONE TO WATCH THIS👇!
Citing "little evidence of broad Russian effort to disrupt midterms", Senate opted to essentially "run out the clock" on imposing the next round of sanctions.
No one paid attention because everyone was talking about Neilsen being "fired".
Who made the decision to run out the clock? Mitch McConnell.
Then began the "charm offensive". Over the course of December, Oleg Deripaska successfully negotiated a deal w/ U.S. Treasury to end the sanctions against aluminum company Rusal.
W/ gov't shutdown, Whittaker in charge, Mattis resigned and Barr being rammed through, Giuliani got back to the business of being Trump's paid on-air clown "TV lawyer" (aka MSM #1 anon source for Mueller scoops).
A lot of 🍸lunches...
Jan 25 2019: News of a "$115M nuclear contract draws scrutiny on Perry." Centrus would reportedly buy it's uranium from Russian state-owned firm TENEX.
Now, remember that French energy co at that Ripon meeting in Paris?
I read it - trying to find any connects b/t the Perry deal and/or Paris meeting...i didn't, but I don't know the nuclear topic well. Anything there?
