Ever since the Soviet Union’s collapse, Ukraine has been the focal point of a tug of war between Putin/Russia and the EU. Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska hired Manafort to help Putin in Ukraine. When Manafort joined Team Trump, he owed Deripaska $20M & wanted to clear that debt.
“When Manafort joined the Trump campaign ten years later, he owed Deripaska close to $20 million, according to legal complaints Deripaska's lawyers filed in the Cayman Islands and New York.” businessinsider.com/court-document…
“Ukraine stuck in a tug-of-war between Russia and the West” pbs.org/newshour/show/…
"’I assume you have shown our friends my media coverage, right?’ Manafort reportedly wrote to Kilimnik.

‘Absolutely,’ replied Kilimnik. ‘Every article.’

‘How do we use to get whole,’ Manafort responded. ‘Has OVD [Oleg Deripaska] operation seen?’” businessinsider.com/court-document…
“Manafort shared 2016 presidential campaign polling data w/ Konstantin Kilimnik,” his contact 4 Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska (to whom Manafort owed $20 million). Deripaska is one of Putin’s closest allies & had previously dispatched Manafort to Ukraine. washingtonpost.com/local/legal-is…

Wow. Documented.net has listed a ton of Council for National Policy (CNP) directories to its website. 1/ documented.net/the-council-fo…
2/ Here’s my article about the CNP. It is based on the 2014 directory and earlier. The link in post 1 goes through 2020! link.medium.com/X0lCe8y48db
3/ Guess who is in the 2020 directory for theCNP, which strategized about how to delegitimize a Trump loss months BEFORE the election? Mr “Stop the Steal” Charlie Kirk himself. Kirk has reportedly had a paid troll farm. His organization helped pay for buses to the insurrection. Image

P. Manafort’s other client, former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, withdrew Ukraine from the EU-Ukraine Agreement, leading to mass protests. Police shot 100 protesters, causing a revolution. He fled to Russia & was convicted of treason in absentia. radiolemberg.com/ua-articles/ua…
Yanukovych (Manafort’s former client) was Putin’s puppet in Ukraine. These are dangerous people. One of Yanukovych’s political opponents was poisoned with dioxin. The other, a woman, was locked up. 1/ bbc.com/news/av/world-…

Agree. Also Bannon suggesting that Fauci shld be beheaded & Lyn Wood calling for Pence’s execution. These are Trump’s close advisors. Did Trump ever publicly disavow?
Seriously, the impeachment team must bring up Steve Bannon’s incendiary messaging. He was. Trump’s sidekick re: the insurrection. @RepRaskin 1/
This is from January 4. Steve Bannon was preparing religious zealots for a holy war. He literally called it “a momentous battle between children of light and children of darkness.” (Alexander Preate, who RTd the interview, is Bannon’s sidekick. Also a religious fanatic.) 2/

Dear @benhovland: If you want to improve public trust in elections, don’t do shady sh#t like quietly changing #RemoveTheModems to “disable” the modems & then lashing out at those who have concerns. As you know, election-security experts say that “disabling them won’t suffice. 1/

🤬@EACgov (led by @benhovland) was poised to ban wireless modems in voting machines, but then caved to (presumably state officials) & decided to allow them, as long as they are “disabled” which experts have explained isn’t enough. #RemoveTheModems
“Cellular modems within voting systems should be PHYSICALLY REMOVED, not merely disabled in software” - Signed, a lot of election-security experts documentcloud.org/documents/7225…

.@AZGOP: Will u audit ES&S voting machines in AZ too? Cuz the “expert” that @MaricopaGOP wants to sic on Dominion (debunked “expert”Russ Ramsland) says that ES&S voting machines steal votes but that GOP leaders won’t look at ES&S. @KenPaxton (14:28) 1/
2/ To be clear. I am NOT saying Ramsland is credible. He is the guy who switched “Michigan” stats with MInnesota stats to make it look like Dominion engaged in fraud in Michigan. But the GOP’s deference to ES&S is objectively bizarre.
3/ Why rely on Ramsland to go after Dominion but ignore him about ES&S?
