Be careful w/ the Parnas drips.

His paymaster is Firtash, a high level RU mobster

The House portrayed Trump’s pressure campaign on Ukraine as part of a dangerous pattern of Russian appeasement that would continue to imperil our NatSec if he remained in office.

‘Take her out’: recording appears to capture Trump saying he wants Yavonovitch fired

It’s bat-bleep insane that Trump, who has the power to fire ambs, is instead talking w/ his goons about this.

Giuliani launched an epic smear campaign to hound her OOO

Why?
💦GrainOfSalt4💦

Trump finally did remove Amb Y, why this secretive campaign against her?

Giuliani was indeed trying to oust Amb Y in collaboration with foreign officials.

On the 7/25 call Trump mentioned Amb Y “will be going through some things.”

Under Trump & 🐢, the GOP has become an active participant in RU’s disinfo op.

The U.S. intel and national security communities have made clear that this is Russian disinfo, & the senators spreading this disinfo have repeatedly been told so, yet they persist.
💦GrainOfSalt5💦

Trump and congressional GOP got the disinfo idea directly from RU Intel Services.
.
The RU disinfo narrative was on full display during the first phase of impeachment as top House GOP repeatedly tried to claim that URN interfered against Trump in the 2016 elex.

It’s been clear for years that some Republicans have been in Putin’s pocket.

@GOPLeader has acknowledged that some of his caucus may be beholden to Russia, telling colleagues, “There’s two people I think Putin pays: [former Rep. Dana] Rohrabacher and Trump.”
💦GrainOfSalt7💦

This concerning behavior from Republicans isn’t happening in a vacuum; it’s happening against a backdrop of serious, sustained Russian efforts to interfere in American democracy.

The Kremlin is already ramping up its disinformation campaign for 2020 & is using
💦GrainOfSalt7💦

Even more sophisticated tactics to deceive the American public.

Republicans in both the House & the Senate have shown that they will knowingly spread Russian propaganda to defend Trump.

"Boy I'm so powerful I can intimidate the entire Ukrainian gov’t,” Giuliani messaged Parnas in May 2019.

“Please don't tell anyone I can't get the “crooked” Amb fired or I did three times & she's still there.”

Roberts has a front row seat to witness, with his own eyes, the mess the Supreme Court have made of the U.S. political system—the living consequences of the Roberts Court’s decisions, & their corrosive effect on democracy, are plain to see.
💦GrainOfSalt12💦

Ten years to the day before Trump’s impeachment trial began, the Supreme Court released its Citizens United decision, plunging the country into the era of super PACs and unlimited, unregulated, secret campaign money from billionaires and foreign interests.
💦GrainOfSalt13💦

Citizens United, and the resulting rise of the super PAC, led directly to this impeachment.

U.S. prosecutors are starting to build cases against traders suspected of manipulating markets as long as a decade ago, after an obscure legal ruling extended the SOL for spoofing cases.
💦GrainOfSalt15💦

The decision addressed a long-running legal debate about whether the placing of electronic market orders w/ the intention of canceling them constituted a form of “false representation” & therefore fraud.

But the ruling has wider
ramifications, b/c wire fraud,

Cases involving conduct older than 5 yrs are already under way.
