(Thread) Did The Russians work with Paul Manafort to ensure a #Trump candidacy - as early as 2005? #TrumpRussia
2. In Mid 2005, Paul Manafort signed a lobbying deal with Oleg Deripaska washingtonpost.com/news/worldview…
3. By the end of the year, there were multiple stories about a Russian funded think tank being started in the United States. All of these stories involved a conversation between Dmitri Simes and Putin propandist Gleb Pavlovsky web.archive.org/web/2006052401…
4. Kommersant reported that this think tank would be funded by Oleg Deripaska - which he promptly denied #TrumpRussia web.archive.org/web/2014082610…’s_Answer/
5. This makes sense considering Lozansky's 40 year desire to turn the US into a Russian satellite state. thesternfacts.com/how-one-man-in…
5b. According to this conspiracy website, @alanagoodman seems to have information that Manafort was behind the think tank conspiracyschool.com/blog/trump-pup…
6. Months after this plan by Deripaska and co hatched, and after Manafort signed a deal with Deripaska....Manafort bought a condo in Trump Tower #TrumpRussia ny.curbed.com/2016/10/25/134…
7. RussiaBlog stated that this had long been an idea of Lozansky web.archive.org/web/2006052412…
8: Putin previewed the think tank idea in a speech in 2007 #TrumpRussia wikileaks.org/plusd/cables/0…
9: Lozansky friend and Ally Andranik Migranyan was chosen to run the NY office of the think tank by Lavrov wikileaks.org/plusd/cables/0…
10: The chairman of the board of the "Institute for Democracy and Cooperation" was Anatoly Kucherena wikileaks.org/plusd/cables/0…
11. Kucherena is a well known lawyer in Russia - He defended Russian Oligarch/Mobster Boris Berezofsky before Boris Fled Russia washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/inatl/l…
12. and bought a condo at Trump International Hotel observer.com/2008/08/inyeti…
13. Kucherena would then also defend Manafort's Ukrainian president - Yanukovich as he showed up in Moscow #TrumpRussia haaretz.com/world-news/1.5…
14. And Russian Mobster Taiwanchik - who ran a gambling ring out of Trump Tower. nytimes.com/2013/07/28/wor…
15. Migranyan and the IDC held Joint events with the Center for the National Interest on a regular basis - the same group that sponsored the controversial event at the Mayflower talkingpointsmemo.com/dc/sessions-ma…
16. In 2013, Edward Snowden fled the US - and his lawyer was none other than Kucherena - who sits on the board of the FSB public chamber.
17. In 2014, Migranyan wrote an op/ed about how Putin was Russia's Reagan nationalinterest.org/commentary/put…
18. And he also defended Hitler rferl.org/a/russia-crime…
19. Migranyan was known as the architect of the Kremlin policy advocating for reasserting control over the former Soviet Satellite states (under Yeltsin) which seems to be happening now with the help of many American Lobbyists (like Manafort)
20. Why would Dana Rohrabacher invite a Kremlin propagandist like Migranyan to speak to the halls of congress about the danger Muslims face? #TrumpRussia russialist.org/testimony-on-r…
21. On June 15th, 2015 - Donald Trump announced he was running for president.
22. Two weeks later - Migranyan announces that he is closing down his Kremlin think tank declaring "Mission Accomplished" interpretermag.com/russian-defend…
23. Two weeks after that - Lozansky writes an op/ed naming some of his Kremlin allies. thedailybeast.com/putin-bootlick…
24. Of course we remember Lozansky talking about the "Stars and Stripes Revolution" he envisioned for the US? #TrumpRussia thesternfacts.com/from-orange-re…
25. Here is Migranyan (with Paul Saunders) talking about a "Colors Revolution" in the US while he brags about Trumps win. #TrumpRussia facebook.com/thenatlinteres…
26: So, I ask you, #TrumpRussia people, Did Paul Manafort organize a think tank that lead to #Trump's candidacy? Was it intentional? Is it not sketchy as hell that said think tank closed down weeks after Trump announced?
27. Regardless, Migranyan and Lozansky are just part of the effort to create the #GrandOldPutinParty through Russian Active measures, which you can read more about in another thread. #TrumpRussia
28. It also appears like Bob Dole was involved in helping the IDC launch. #TrumpRussia
29. Here's a video of Lozansky, Migranyan, and former CIA agent Ray Mcgovern spouting Kremlin Propaganda on RT everytube.de/watch/dailymot…
30. This Institute for Democracy and Cooperation had more than just a New York Office. It opened an office in Paris too - and appears to have been working with Le Pen rferl.org/a/russia-soft-…
31. This office is run by John Laughland - a British Brexit supporter and opponent of Globalism goodreads.com/book/show/4110…
32. Putin's close friend and oligarch Vladimir Yakunin met with Rohrabacher in April 2016 thesternfacts.com/proof-trump-kn…
33. He also opened a think tank in Berlin in July 2016 doc-research.org/en/our-events/…
34. Laughland works for Yakunin's think tank too. These people are attacking Europe like they're doing to us too. #KremlinGate #TrumpRussia doc-research.org/en/author/john…
35. Migranyan went out of his way to say the IDC was NOT Kremlin funded....even thought it is. themoscowtimes.com/articles/russi…
