THREAD: FBI says an associate of Trump’s campaign chair Paul Manafort had *ongoing* Russian🇷🇺intelligence ties *during the campaign* when Manafort & deputy campaign chair, Rick Gates, were in contact w/the associate‼️1/

This BOMBSHELL — that not only were Trump’s *top* campaign staff (Manafort and Gates) in contact with #Russian🇷🇺intelligence, but THEY KNEW this person was “former” GRU — came from a court filing for indicted lawyer, Alex van der Zwaan‼️2/


Team🇺🇸Mueller filed a “Sentencing Memorandum” in the van der Zwaan case👉🏼states that Gates had said he knew “Person A” was a “former” officer w/#Russian🇷🇺military intelligence (GRU).🤨

As Putin said: “there are no FORMER chekists.”🙄 3/
“Person A” is Konstantin KILIMNIK, a “former” GRU officer and longtime associate of Manafort and Gates in the Ukraine, who also is close to #Russian🇷🇺oligarch, Oleg Deripaska‼️🤨 4/


Shortly after being hired as Trump’s campaign chair, Manafort contacted #Russian🇷🇺Intel officer Kilimnik and offered to provide PRIVATE BRIEFINGS on Trump’s campaign to Putin pal, Oleg Deripaska‼️🙄 5/


Manafort was in FREQUENT contact w/#Russian🇷🇺Intel officer Kilimnik WHILE RUNNING Trump’s campaign👉🏼met *in person* in May’16 & in Aug’16.🤨

Manafort’s spokesman said in June that Manafort’s interactions w/Kilimnik were “perfectly permissible.”🙄


In Jul’16, WikiLeaks released the stolen DNC emails that had been HACKED by #Russia🇷🇺.

The next month during their Aug’16 meeting, Manafort & Kilimnik discussed Trump’s ongoing campaign, including the hacked DNC emails.🤨 7/

Republicans, led by Devin Nunes, keep claiming “no #collusion.”🙄


Trump’s *top* campaign brass — chair Manafort & deputy chair Gates — were in FREQUENT contact w/#Russian🇷🇺intel officer Kilimnik.

And Gates is SQUEALING to Mueller‼️😎/end

PS: to be clear, #Russian🇷🇺agent Kilimnik was NOT just a “random” contact. Kilimnik worked for Manafort and Gates in the Ukraine for *over 10 years*‼️

And Mueller now has receipts, courtesy of Gates and van der Zwaan, of Kilimnik’s role in #TrumpRussia🇷🇺‼️
