This document, tweeted by Mangiante herself, proves that she is being deceptive about her age. The last number in the picture is her unique tax code. The number 81 refers to her birth year. She showed ABC a picture of her passport that said she was born in '84. Which one is it?
So either she didn't tell the truth to the Italian Bar Association, or the passport she showed to ABC is incorrect.
It's actually a bit worse than that. "codice fiscale" is the official tax code card for the government of Italy, similar to a SSN. So either Mangiante isn't being truthful with the Italian government, the American government or she showed ABC an illegitimate passport.
Mangiante is now cleaning up her LinkedIn. Left: Her resume as of a few days ago. Right: Her resume now
ABC says they saw a picture of her passport in which it says she was born in 1984. Why the the official Bar association of Italy have her birth date as 1981?
What ABC failed to mention is that the unnamed partner that they spoke to is John Schmitz whose brother Joe was on Trump's team (pictured next to George Papadopoulos) and who tried to get Clinton's emails off the dark web.
I've been investigating Psy Group for months. Although based in Israel, the corporate structure strongly suggests Russian ownership. medium.com/@ScottMStedman…
"Mr. Nader and Mr. Zamel have given differing accounts over whether Mr. Zamel ultimately carried out the social media effort to help the Trump campaign and why Mr. Nader paid him $2 million." If this payment actually went thru because of election help, it is a conspiracy.
Let's talk about Stephan Roh. He funded Joseph Mifsud and acts as his lawyer. George Papadopoulos somehow knew Roh and reached out to him in mid 2017 looking for business opportunities. I've spent a month looking into his background. He has connections to the KGB and RU oligarchs
Roh's mother in law, Svetlana Vassylyevna was the head of Intourist for the famous Moscow Metropol hotel until 1992. Intourist handled all of the travels of famous foreigners in the USSR. It is now widely believed to just have been a front for the KGB.
Olga Roh, Stephan's Russian wife, wrote about her mother in 2016, confirming the details about Intourist. Olga "grew up" in the Metropol hotel and mingled with KGB affiliated people. facebook.com/permalink.php?…
In 2016, Simona Mangiante was let go from her position at the European Parliament working on child abductions. Her friends and colleagues wrote a letter of support, saying that she worked at the European Ombudsman's office. No she didn't. I just got a statement from the office.
Here is the letter of support. abpworldgroup.com/2016/02/11/com… "Simona Mangiante...proved to be very competent in the field, being beyond an official of the European Palriament a qualified international lawyer and lastly legal Advisor of ‘Ombudsman’s office."
Official statement from the Ombudsman's office: "I'm afraid that the European Ombudsman never employed anyone named Simona Mangiante."
Wow. Peter Smith, the veteran GOP operative who attempted to work with Russian hackers to obtain Clinton’s emails in 2016, raised $100,000 to fund this effort and took steps to ensure that it all remained completely secret. wsj.com/articles/gop-o…
This story completely changed my view of Smith. He was a cunning political operative who used insanely suspicious techniques such as foldering his emails, a technique made infamous by al Qaeda.
The way the story is written strongly suggests that Smith paid Russians in the US $150,000 under the guise of “the Washington Scholarship Fund for the Russian students.” If this is accurate, then we now have a confirmed example of a payment made to Russians from a GOP operative.
Someone who knew Kavanaugh in high school just told me: “he drank to the point of not being able to know right from wrong.”
The picture I'm getting from this person who attended parties with Kavanaugh is that he would've done almost anything to impress Mark Judge, who, in this person's words, "would definitely be involved in something like this."
I don't care that Kavanaugh drank in high school and college. I don't even really care that he got black out drunk. I care that the evidence is pointing toward the conclusion that he lied multiple times under oath.
NEW: Video unearthed of the shadowy professor/Russian intermediary Joseph Mifsud in early 2017. He says he attended a @Heritage Foundation meeting shortly after the 2016 election. I have reached out to The Heritage Foundation looking for more about their relationship with Mifsud.
From 2015-mid 2016, The Heritage Foundation used Cambridge Analytica to identify new donors. Were they also in contact with Joseph Mifsud who knew the Russians had Clinton's emails?
The video is from a 2017 event for the Russian International Affairs Council.
I've just received a signed 2015 letter from Joseph Mifsud to a Putin insider Vladimir Filippov. The letter congratulates the Peoples' Friendship University of Russia (where Filippov is Rector) on its 50th anniversary. Mifsud writes, "we are proud of our friendship with Russia."
Mifsud sent the letter on behalf of his now-defunct London Academy of Diplomacy. Filippov would go on to receive an award from Putin in early 2016.
For those asking, Stephan Roh told me today that Joseph Mifsud is alive.
NEW: Creative Response Concepts (responsible for pushing the ridiculous Kavanaugh doppelgänger theory and otherwise slandering his accusers) registered as a foreign agent in 2005 for the Putin backed Ukrainian politician Viktor Yanukovych. (h/t @thomasafine)
Stephan Roh just emailed me a cease-and-desist demand because of my "false and defamatory allegations" against Joseph Mifsud
"Prof Mifsud never discussed (or offered) such emails, as well he condemns strongly any accusation him being a Russian agent etc."
"The majority of the media has now accepted the...fact that..Mifsud is a Western intelligence operative - and that he has been made available by Western intelligence to connect Mr Papadopoulos to one Russian person. Today, same Western intelligence was guiding him to stay quite."
Here’s the plan for me: I’m planning on making this my full time job for the time being and delivering content directly to the world via Twitter and a blog. I’ve applied to @PremoSocial, where I plan to set up an account for $3/month wherein subscribers get more info/analysis.
News and articles will still be posted here. If you subscribe to Premo Social (assuming I get approved) you will get direct access to me via DM, source documents for my stories, extra analysis, a weekly Q and A, and more.
I might even make it $2/month to make it more doable. I love doing this research but I also need to feed myself. Very open to suggestions for what else I can offer Premo subscribers.
Remember RD Heritage, the energy group that claimed that @carterwpage invested $350,000,000? They have updated their website to note that they have an existing relationship with the Qatar Investment Company, the group that bought part of Rosneft.
Original story: medium.com/@ScottMStedman…. They cited Page's work for Trump, so the $350M claim came after Page left the campaign.
RD Heritage was incorporated in late 2013, so the capital commitment could've been anytime after that. Page testified that he had no income in 2016 and 2017. @carterwpage can you clear this up?
I've spent a considerable amount of time investigating Roh recently. The theory that he is somehow tied to Western intel is ridiculous. He has made his entire living off of Russian investments, including Russian government bonds.
RD Heritage is demanding that I remove this article. I have made one small revision. The capital commitment happened after Page's tenure with the Trump campaign, not necessarily after the election. Page resigned in late September, 2016.
Breaking: An energy investment group claims $350M (!) capital commitment from Carter Page's Global Energy Capital after 2016 election. This calls into question his Congressional testimony when he told @RepSwalwell that he had no income in 2016 and 2017: medium.com/@ScottMStedman…
-Mid July: I discover that Carter Page allegedly committed $350M to this group
-July 24: I reach out to RD Heritage and Page via email and LinkedIn, looking for more info.
-July 25: RD Heritage scrubs their website of all mentions of Page and Global Energy Capital
There are a few areas of investigation in the Trump/Russia affair that I think need more scrutiny/analysis. As I start to shift into a private sector job I wanted to leave a thread of leads that journalists must continue to investigate.
1. Michael Cohen's trips abroad in 2016. What did he actually do in Italy and with whom did he meet? Did he do anything more than meet with family in London?
2. There has been a TON of coverage of the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting (and rightfully so). But what about the August 2016 meeting with Trump Jr, Zamel, Nader and Prince? There are so many threads to pull that have not been unwound at all.
Bittersweet announcement time: I've accepted an incredible private sector research job which means my public reporting and tweeting will be wrapping up in the near future.
I have a story or two that I am planning on publishing before going dark. I don't anticipate this being the end of my journalism career, but it is a pause for the foreseeable future. Thanks all for the support.
I've really had such a blast interacting with everyone. I'm not going to delete this account but will have to stop reporting once I get my last couple of stories published.
BREAKING live on CNN: Michael Cohen claims Trump knew about the infamous Trump Tower meeting and APPROVED it.
"Cohen alleges that he was present, along with several others, when Trump was informed of the Russians' offer by Trump Jr. By Cohen's account, Trump approved going ahead with the meeting with the Russians," cnn.com/2018/07/26/pol…
