🔥The FBI took control of an encrypted communications app called '#Anom' and turned it into a honeypot for crooks, netting more than 20 million messages from over 11,800 devices used by suspected criminals.

Massive arrests are ensuing.😎

The FBI, #Australian Federal Police & a confidential human source built #Anom so that a master key is silently attached to each message, enabling "law enforcement to decrypt & store the message as it’s transmitted.

"A user of Anom is unaware of this capability.”😂

Operation #TrojanShield captured >20 million messages since October 2019, including OVERT DISCUSSION of drug smuggling, #corruption, and other high-level organized criminal activities.

The idiots even sent photos of their drugs.😂
In 2018, the FBI arrested Vincent Ramos, the CEO of Phantom Secure, that provided custom, privacy-focused devices to organized criminals.

This opened the door for a new “secure” encrypted app for crooks, called #Anom.

Except the Feds got EVERY MESSAGE in REAL TIME.😂🤣😂
After that arrest, a confidential human source (CHS) who previously sold phones for Phantom and another firm (Sky Global) "offered this next generation device '#Anom,’ to the FBI to use in ongoing and new investigations.”

The CHS got #busted, then flipped BIGLY.

When crooks left Phantom, they flocked to others, such as #Anom. The FBI then started Operation #TrojanShield, in which it effectively **ran a communications network targeted to criminals and intercepted messages running across it.**

In real time. With photos!😂
The capture of #Anom messages has initiated numerous high-level public #corruption cases in several countries. The most prominent crooks are currently being investigated by the FBI for “international drug trafficking, #MoneyLaundering, and obstruction of justice."💥

🔥The @BostonGlobe Editorial Board calls on @TheJusticeDept to prosecute Trump CRIMINALLY: Saving American democracy for the long run requires a clear condemnation of the Trump presidency. That means making clear that no one is above the law.

“After the precedent-busting, lawbreaking presidency of Donald Trump, Congress needs to pass new laws to constrain future officeholders...Presidents also need a clear message, one that will echo through history, that breaking the law in the Oval Office will actually be punished.”
“In the case of Trump, prosecutors would have plenty of potential crimes...what is most important are his actions during his time in office, especially those after the 2020 election, which culminated in fomenting a full-on, violent assault on American democracy.”

🚨Secret trove of IRS documents shows how the ultra-rich AVOID TAXES.

25 richest are worth $1.1 trillion—equal to 14.3 million average wage earners TOGETHER.

Taxes for the 25: $1.9 billion

Taxes for wage earners: $143 billion, 70 times HIGHER🤬

No one of the 25 richest avoided as much tax as Warren Buffett, who paid a 0.1% total tax rate.

Many paid ZERO income taxes several years:
George Soros 3 times
Jeff Bezos and Carl Icahn twice — Bezos one year even got a $4000 child tax credit
Elon Musk and Mike Bloomberg once
Megabillionaires pay their megabills—while opting for $1 salaries and hanging onto their stock—by borrowing LOTS of money to access billions without producing income, and thus, AVOIDING income tax.

‼️A report on the origins of #COVID19 by US govt national lab @Livermore_Lab says the hypothesis that the #coronavirus leaked from a Chinese lab in Wuhan is “plausible and deserves further investigation,” per people familiar with the classified document.

NOTHING will ever excuse Trump’s total negligence that led to hundreds of thousands of Americans needlessly dying from #COVID19.

Regardless, we must follow the #science and learn the TRUTH about how this deadly #coronavirus emerged.🧐
Numerous esteemed scientists, including Dr. Fauci, agree that the origins of #COVID19 must be FULLY investigated.

🚨BREAKING: hackers linked to #Russian🇷🇺intel have breached @USAID’s @ConstantContact account in an ONGOING ATTACK to send spearphishing emails to >3,000 accounts at >150 organizations—many such groups have been critical of Putin’s human rights violations.
Microsoft says #Nobelium is behind the attack—the same #Russian🇷🇺hackers behind the #SolarWinds hack that was the work of the SVR, a spinoff from the KGB.

The SVR was behind the hack of the @DNC in 2016, and attacks on the Pentagon, the WH email system and the State Department🤬
#Russia’s🇷🇺latest cyberattack began after @POTUS imposed new sanctions on #Russian individuals and assets for the #SolarWinds cyberattack—including restrictions on purchasing #Russia’s sovereign debt, making it more difficult for Russia to raise money & support its currency.
