BREAKING NEWS: Texts Tied to One of Trump's Three Legal Teams (Giuliani, Parnas, Fruman) Hint at a Possible Attack on the Then-U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch, Then Standing in the Way of Trump Getting Biden Dirt and His Associates Controlling Ukraine's Gas Industry
ADDENDUM: New Evidence Explains Yovanovitch's Congressional Testimony, in Which She Said Under Oath That the State Department Had to Extract Her From Kyiv on An Emergency Basis for Her Own Safety
PS/ *100%* of U.S. news-watchers will read those texts as referring to (at a minimum) a physical assault and (at a maximum) the assassination of a U.S. ambassador as part of Trump's plot to get dirt on Biden. Whatever the texts actually meant, *that* is what most people will see.
PS2/ Those wondering what Trump's three legal teams are:

1️⃣ OFFICIAL: Cipollone (federal), Sekulow (private), &c

2️⃣ PERSONAL: Giuliani, Parnas, Fruman

3️⃣ CLANDESTINE: diGenova, Toensing

And arguably, there's a fourth legal team:

4️⃣ TRUMP ORGANIZATION: Garten, Weisselberg, &c
PS3/ Sure *sounds* like a murder plot: "She's not getting away" (Parnas); "She's going to go through some things" (Trump); State gave her an emergency security extraction; and texts talking about her location/security and purchasing a clandestine service.
PS4/ But hey! on the bright side, it may be that Trump's legal team was *not* involved in a possible attack on a U.S. ambassador, but *merely* did *everything* it could do to leave that impression on the U.S. State Department, which then emergency-extracted Yovanovitch from Kyiv.
PS5/ Don't get it twisted: I've *no idea* what the texts mean—I'm just saying that after years and years and years of working in the criminal justice system, I know there's not a police detective alive who wouldn't look at these facts and open a pretty damn serious investigation.
PS6/ Until you know the full Ukraine story—what was really at stake, besides Clinton and Biden dirt—it's going to seem impossible that anyone was looking to harm Yovanovitch. When you know billions of dollars and Trump's criminal liability re: Russia was at stake, it all changes.
PS7/ So if you've got big opinions on what these texts mean, you better know who Favorov is, and Kobolyev, and Firtash, and Hochstein; you better know about oblgazy, RosUkrEnergo and Naftogaz; you better know what "The Perry List" and the "Black Ledger" are. I ain't playin' here.
