THREAD: in summer 2016, Trump foreign policy adviser, Joseph Schmitz, pushed US government agencies to review materials from the dark web that he thought were Hillary Clinton's deleted emails‼️ 1/…
Schmitz is *yet another* Trump advisers who were mixed up in efforts to find Clinton’s emails.🙄

He approached the FBI & other USG agencies about material a client of his had “found” that Schmitz claimed were Clinton's missing 30,000 emails👉🏼actually FAKE‼️2/
🔥 Schmitz was one of the first to be named to Trump’s national security & foreign policy team.🤨

Schmitz attended Trump’s first foreign policy meeting in Mar’16 at Trump International Hotel in DC & sat next to Papadopoulos‼️

PapaD *also* tried to get HRC’s emails.🙄 3/
So now we have TWO members of Trump’s🇷🇺foreign policy team — PapaD & Schmitz — who tried to get HRC’s emails that they each believed had been HACKED‼️

Hacked = STOLEN. This is really shady stuff, and potentially ILLEGAL.🤨 4/
PapaD was told by Kremlin-connected Mifsud that the #Russian🇷🇺government had damaging material/emails on Clinton. 6 wks later, Trump Jr got a emailed by Goldstone also offering HRC dirt to be delivered at the #RussianLawyer🇷🇺meeting.🤔 5/

Steve Bannon reportedly told the House Intel in February that Team🇷🇺Trump "kept getting approached" by outsiders offering ways to get HRC’s emails.🤔

Worse, we *know* that MANY (all?) of these offers of HRC dirt came from the Kremlin/cutouts.🙄 6/

Schmitz's used his status as a *former Pentagon inspector general* and sophisticated understanding of USG bureaucracy to access the agencies. He was “relentless,” and truly believed his client had found HRC dirt *on the DARK WEB*.🤨 7/
Peter Smith tried to get HRC's emails from the DARK WEB, even though he was warned of the danger that hackers could be from #Russia🇷🇺.

Flynn, KellyAnne & other Trump associates were included on SLIDES that Smith had about the project.🤨 8/


Back to *former Pentagon IG* Schmitz, who did not hesitate to try to get HRC emails, even though the supposed HACKED emails on the DARK WEB (not easily accessible/traceable) were questionable, and many experts *already believed #Russia🇷🇺 had stolen Clinton's emails. 9/
Schmitz met w/FBI, State Dept & Intelligence Community IG (who investigated Clinton's handling of emails)👉🏼claimed a source called "PATRIOT" (an unidentified contractor he was representing) had discovered what he believed was likely material stolen from Clinton.🤨 10/
Schmitz & his client "worried" that the dark web Clinton info could contain classified info & "were afraid" that going through the material w/o permission could jeopardize their security clearances, though there is no indication their actions were illegal.🤔 11/
To sum so far: Schmitz's client got what he believed were *HRC's stolen emails" on the DARK WEB, then tried to get the government to "investigate" the STOLEN info.🤨

Smells like a ploy to get the government to use this STOLEN info to damage HRC.🙄 12/
State Dept & IC IG briefly interviewed Schmitz👉🏼declined to review or accept the info. FBI interviewed him as a part of its ongoing investigation into HRC's emails.🤔

The pros in the USG knew better than to use STOLEN info from the DARK WEB in an investigation‼️😎 13/

Schmitz then took a memo outlining his claims & concerns to House Intel. One cybersecurity expert outside government who saw the material on the dark web said the emails appeared to be FAKE, based on his review & where they were posted (dark web's "Reddit").🙄 14/
Former Pentagon IG Schmitz is a *former co-worker & confidant of Erik PRINCE*👉🏼Schmitz told the media he'd been working for Trump🇷🇺Trump for about a month BEFORE the announcement & communicated closely w/Sam CLOVIS.🤨 15/

Schmitz, "just happens" to know Prince, PapaD, Clovis, Sessions & others, and "just happened" to have gotten a hold of hacked info he thought was HRCs missing emails.🙄

Schmitz also knows Carter PAGE and attended the Republican National Convention w/him & other advisers.🤨 16/
After Schmitz worked w/Trump through the election (according to a bio on his law firm's website), Trump considered Schmitz as a possible Secretary of the Navy. Schmitz has ties w/far-right groups, including one that has promoted anti-Muslim views.🤬 17/
🔥Schmitz's small law firm represents a major #Russian🇷🇺 airline *previously under #sanctions* by the US State Dept for ARMS DEALS with #Iran‼️

Peter Clement (fmr top CIA analyst) said Schmitz's ties "would have made him stand out" as a potential target to Russia.🙄 18/
MANY on Team🇷🇺Trump tried to get HRCs stolen emails:

~Jr via the #RussianLawyer
~Peter Smith (allegedly committed suicide)

In Fall 2016, USIC had chatter btwn #Russian hackers hoping to steal HRC's emails & get them to Misha🇷🇺Flynn via an intermediary.🤨 19/
The #SteeleDossier alleged that Trump would drop #sanctions in exchange for #Russia's🇷🇺help to throw the election. Now, we have evidence of MULTIPLE attempts by Russia to GIVE emails to Team Trump & attempts by Team Trump to GET emails from Russia.🤨

See the pattern⁉️ 20/
Team🇺🇸Mueller is connecting ALL of these dots👉🏼Flynn & PapaD flipped, Clovis already testified before the GJ and presumably is cooperating.😎

Have no fear, friends. Just watch Team🇷🇺Traitor sweat as Mueller circles closer & closer‼️🤗
