(THREAD) On November 4, 2016—96 hours before the presidential election—Trump advisor Erik Prince went on a radio network controlled by Trump campaign CEO Steve Bannon to say that an anti-Clinton cabal at NYPD was conspiring to leak false information about Clinton pre-election.
2/ The facts here are undisputed:

(1) This interview occurred and Prince said what he said.
(2) Prince was in contact with Bannon before and after the election.
(3) Prince was a Trump advisor.
(4) Everything he said was a lie.
(5) What NYPD planned to put out was disinformation.

(6) Prince makes clear NYPD was coercing the FBI by threatening to put out disinformation.
(7) The coercion worked; Comey reopened the Clinton probe to prove the emails did *not* say what NYPD claimed.
(8) Giuliani was receiving leaks from active FBI agents and NYPD officers.

(9) Giuliani said a "surprise" was coming two days before Comey wrote Congress. He said it could give Trump the election.
(10) He said it in the context of revealing he'd gotten leaks from anti-Clinton FBI agents.
(11) The New York office of the FBI was called "Trumplandia."

(12) The leaks Giuliani received were illegal. The leaks Prince received were unethical.
(13) Both sets of leaks were pro-Trump cabals in the FBI and NYPD trying to help Trump's campaign.
(14) Giuliani said the agents in New York were livid Comey had closed the Clinton case.

(15) The lies Prince told had been "reported" two days earlier by a known fake news site, "True Pundit," that popped up the same day Don Jr. met with Kremlin agents at Trump Tower. The site claims to be run by former FBI agents still in contact with active—leaking—FBI agents.

(16) Prince says he got the story from anti-Clinton NYPD cops; True Pundit says he got it via anti-Clinton FBI agents; a Giuliani pal says Giuliani got it via the FBI and NYPD.
(17) McCabe emailed Comey days before the Comey Letter expressing worry about the True Pundit hoax.

(18) The New York Times says Comey wrote the Comey Letter (re-opening the Clinton investigation) because of a fear about "leaks" regarding the "new" Clinton emails. Those leaks could only come from NYPD or the FBI.
(19) Don Jr. and Flynn both tweeted out the True Pundit hoax.

(20) The NYPD gave the FBI Weiner's PC to check for any new Clinton emails on October 3. Comey told the New York field office ("Trumplandia") to answer that question ASAP on October 3. Over three weeks later, he found they had ignored his orders and done virtually *nothing*.

(21) They hadn't asked cooperating witnesses Abedin and Weiner for permission to look at the emails.
(22) They hadn't sought a warrant.
(23) They hadn't used their IT guys to see if the emails were duplicates.
(24) They blindsided Comey with this 10 days before the election.

(25) Here's what they *did* do from 10/3 to 10/27: they leaked disinformation about what the PC contained to Prince and Giuliani. NYPD threatened FBI brass with releasing the disinformation. They let Prince and Giuliani lie for political advantage. They *conspired*.
The #TRUMPLANDIA conspiracy.
NOTE/ The day after Prince/Bannon coordinated a disinformation drop on Breitbart—online and radio—Comey revealed the emails Prince said held damning info and would lead to immediate NYPD arrests were *duplicates*. Prince/Bannon didn't think Comey could check on that pre-election.
NOTE2/ Trump rewarded Prince by (a) inviting him to his election-night party; (b) putting his sister Betsy DeVos in his Cabinet; (c) letting him continue on as advisor; (d) sending him as surrogate to the Seychelles; (e) letting Prince lobby him on lucrative Middle East projects.
NOTE3/ Watch this video, beginning at 3:00, for approximately 90 seconds and you will find out why Jim Comey got fired.

He said he was "very interested" in finding out—on an expedited basis—whether the FBI had leaked to Giuliani or Giuliani pal Kallstrom.…
NOTE4/ The #Trumplandia conspiracy must be investigated. Giuliani/Prince confessed to its particulars on audio/video, and Flynn/Don Jr. participated in it via social media (note: Don later tried to erase his tweet).

This *doesn't impugn* the many good folks at NYPD and the FBI.
NOTE5/ Steve Bannon has made clear, in several interviews, with both Michael Wolff and other reporters after he left the White House, that he controlled and was able to manipulate Breitbart content at will and that the Trump campaign "fed" information to Breitbart—again, at will.
LINK/ (h/t DM) The FBI had at its disposal, on October 3, 2016, a means to scan the "new" Clinton emails instantaneously to see if they *were* new. Apparently they never used it—as when Comey asked them on October 26, 2016 what they'd found, they shrugged.…
