THREAD: Kushner failed to disclose a "#Russian🇷🇺backdoor overture & dinner invite" w/Aleksander Torshin👉🏼former senator & dep head of Russia's central bank who is close w/Putin‼️1/…

Torshin allegedly has links to #Russian organized crime.🤨

Email chain described Torshin as wanting Trump to attend an event on the sidelines of a NRA convention in Louisville KY in May 2016‼️ 2/
Torshin wanted to meet w/a high-level Trump campaign official during the NRA convention & that he "may have had a message for Trump from Putin"‼️😳 3/

Kushner reportedly rebuffed the request after receiving a lengthy email exchange about it btwn a WV man & Trump campaign aide Rick Dearborn.🤔 4/
Kushner told Dearborn & the other Trump campaign officials on the email that "they should not accept requests from people who pretend to have contacts w/foreign officials to aggrandize themselves." 🤨 5/
Even though Kush emailed Dearborn & other campaign staff not to accept Torshin's offer, *Torshin was seated w/Trump Jr* during a private dinner on the sidelines of a Louisville NRA event, according to an account Torshin gave to Bloomberg. 🤔 6/
Congressional investigators "have no clear explanation" for how👇🏼THIS👇🏼came to be.

CONSPIRACY, maybe⁉️🙄  7/

Trump Jr's lawyer did not respond to requests for comment.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.🤨

Wouldn't INNOCENT people deny this⁉️ 8/
Spanish anti-corruption officials have identified Torshin as a "godfather" in the #Russian🇷🇺mafia — something Torshin denies (of course).🙄 9/
This report of the Kush-Torshin-Jr connection is *yet another* example of a senior #Russian🇷🇺official making high level contacts w/the Trump campaign‼️ 10/
*Both* Feinstein & Grassley on the Senate Judiciary Cmte sent Kush a harsh letter this week accusing him of failing to disclose a series of documents requested by Congressional investigators.🤨 11/
Kush's lawyer, Abbe Lowell, said they've responded to every request. but made it clear that they were starting w/doc's they've provided to other committees & then will subsequently exchange other information.🙄

As my friend @ericgarland said recently, "ARE WE DONE YET?"

Mueller will soon rain down #indictments on Team🇷🇺Traitor‼️



PS.1/ CBS just reported MORE details on Jr's treason meeting.

Torshin & his "assistant" Maria Butina wanted to meet Trump & "were eager for him to travel to #Russia to meet w/Putin"‼️…
PS.2/ Torshin & Butina👉🏼members of #Russian🇷🇺"The Right To Bear Arms"🤨

Their request was made via an intermediary attached w/the NRA event in KY, who forwarded a *5-page request* to Trump campaign officials, including Manafort & Gates👉🏼forwarded to Kushner.
PS.3/ My friend @aliasvaughn breaks down the CBS report in excellent detail👇🏼HERE👇🏼

PS.4/ Is👇🏼THIS👇🏼the same "WV man" previously reported to have tried to link #Russia & Trump campaign via Dearborn👉🏼now reported (see #4 above) to have tried to link Torshin & Trump via Dearborn⁉️
