My spirit animal Martin Sheil weighs in on today’s Tom Barrack news.

Sheil, a former I.R.S. criminal investigator and money laundering expert, has the hot take: “Don’t these bad boys ever learn?

Thread. 1/
“I guess Barrack and Manafort were too busy back in the day talking about how to beat tax evasion when they were kibitzing about campaign contributions on Tom's yacht off Greece to get around to talkin about filing FARA.”-Marty Sheil… @guardian archives 2/
“The authorities got into Manafort's finances when investigating the former president's old campaign manager for failing to file FARA and that soon led to Tax Fraud, Bank Fraud, Money Laundering charges et al.”-Martin Sheil 3/
“The Italian tax authorities indicted Barrack's corporation for tax fraud which likely led the American authorities to look into Barrack's overseas transactions and whether or not he filed FARA when conducting business with so many Middle Eastern government officials.”-Marty 4/
“Don't any of these bad boys ever learn from their cohorts?”-Martin Sheil 5/
“Think Rudy took notice of Barrack's indictment? He hasn't filed his FARA yet either. Think the government authorities have noticed? Think they might be interested in following the money too?”-Martin Sheil 6/

FROM 2016: “The allegation—that Putin had used his position as head of the Russian intelligence service to destroy video evidence of himself having sex with underage boys—was “the climax” of a..feud between Alexander Litvinenko and Putin.”… @thedailybeast
“He seemed to me very independent, sure of himself and at the same time innocent boy and a nice boy. I tell you honestly, I just wanted to stroke him like a kitten and it came out in this gesture. There is nothing behind it.”… @DailyMailUK
“…reports he was left with a childless man when his real mom’s husband rejected her “b*stard” son…”

I wonder if people who chronically post Fox clips are being paid to spread the propaganda.
The mind virus spreads with each clip, designed to stoke outrage or confirm bias.

Their guests and anchors are wholesale propagandists and Kremlin operatives.
If we as a country are to get clarity of thought, we have to stop the perpetual intrusion of lies.

Why is this mom smiling? She saw her daughter’s film “Summertime”.

Go see this beautiful, funny, cathartic, poetic film! My kid’s the film’s poetry editor; her poem opens this exquisite film; and she’s the poet on the bus.

Spoiler alert: you’ll need a 😂post-film cheeseburger.
Mila, with the film’s star-poets Raul Herrera and Marquesha Babers at the post-screening Q&A🤍🤍🤍.

I’m old enough to remember when a foreign agent posing as a businessman crimed his way into the presidency and corporate America said cheese.
