Ben Domenech took $36k to write PR for the Malaysian government and call it journalism. Same Malaysian PM caught up in the 1mdb scandal recently. No cause for concern here?

"Donald Trump’s personal lawyer arranged for a $1.6m payment to a Playboy playmate in 2017 to keep secret her sexual relationship with a top Republican fundraiser and ally of Trump."

Elliott Broidy referenced Secure America now (SAN) as “one of the groups I am working with."

Secure America Now funded by Robert Mercer ($2 million) and Ron Lauder ($1.1 million).

Elliott Broidy lobbied Novatek. Novatek's CEO is Leonid Mikhelson. His primary business partner (also on the board of Novatek) is Gennady Timchenko. He's been friends with Putin since Vlad's time in St. Petersburg in the 1990s.

December 2017:

"Russia's Novatek said Monday the maiden cargo from its Yamal LNG project that shipped at the weekend had been sold to the UK-based LNG trading subsidiary of Malaysia's state-owned Petronas."

Broidy tried to lobby to stop the US investigation into 1MDB scandal, right? Well, "about $4.5 billion was misappropriated from 1MDB by officials of the fund and their associates. That includes movie rights to the Hollywood film "Wolf of Wall Street.'"

Colony Capital’s Tom Barrack spent over $11 million this night. He ran Trump's Inauguration.

Access Industries' Len Blavatnik spent $900,000.

Harvey Weinstein was also in attendance. Lots of connections between this crowd I won't get into now. But...

Tom Barrack also has lots of business interactions with Paul Manafort.

Wouldn't you know it, Attorney Kyle Freeney moved from the DOJ investigation of "The Wolf of Wall Street" to working with Mueller around the time they turned the heat up on Manafort.

Two Hollywood producers, Steven J. Brown and J. David Williams, had close ties to Broidy and are connected via various business dealings — including film projects — to Paul Manafort's business partner Rick Gates.

Tom Barrack "a longtime friend of President Donald Trump and chairman of his inaugural committee, said he hired Gates in March to advise on potential investments in and around the communications industry."

The Claremont Institute and The Federalist are the intersection of Koch, Mercer, Bannon, David Horowitz, Ron Lauder, Peter Thiel, Scaife Foundation, the #CNP and Russia in one single place.

Over and over again we come back to this same group.
#WhoFundsTheFederalist? ⬆️⬆️They do.

Why are they working together? They want to tear our country apart. That is what unites them, and it's why The Federalist is pushing Kremlin propaganda. It's also why they're trying to hide it.
