Follow GOP dark money and you'll find most paths lead you back to one guy: Leonard Leo. New names, new organizations pop up here and there but if there's GOP dark money moving around, Leo is there.

So about that social media platform Team Trump has been quietly launching.

GETTR is Guo. politico.com/news/2021/07/0…

The GOP has always been shortsighted but it’s still amazing they staked their future on a man with a very long and very well-documented history of self-destruction 🤯

Has anyone asked Lauren Boebert if she is a member of the Oath Keepers? 📍

Not panicking, tweeting.

It appears a group sending out emails & running donation page via ActBlue is a FRAUD.

🚨"DEMOCRATIC STRATEGY INSTITUTE"🚨

Do not fill out their surveys or donate. Email ActBlue to help get this taken down.

Anti-Biden/Pro-Trump msgs. Not legit.

Spread the word please! If you search Twitter for this group you will see plenty of likely bot accounts posting Donation links etc.

Be on high alert folks and tell your friends and family.

This is what the emails look like: screenshot via @InventorCat Image

I call for Tara Reade to explain her blog posts about her love of Putin and Russia. Those views destroy her credibility at least in my view.

Also where was she when Biden was nominated for VP and served for 8 years? From Tara Reade to Christine O’Donnell’s niece, I am sickened by the weaponization of #MeToo we have been witnessing over the past week or so.

Bernie Sanders *time and time again* hires reckless campaign staffers and endorses unvetted candidates for office.

You are the company you keep -- this is disqualifying. Bernie endorsed Tim Canova in 2016.
He has appeared on Russian television networks 18+ times..

More details on Canova here-

Yes, Twitter accounts for a much smaller % of political advertising $$ than FB/G. BUT its piece of the pie is likely undervalued as this $2mm figure doesn't include contractors.

If you think Twitter ads are small potatoes..
See Trump 2016 receipts-

washingtonpost.com/politics/2019/… Because URL forensics tell us Twitter is where the Trump campaign targeted "Bernie Supporters" in August 2016-- a strategy the Russians were using in parallel.

Maybe we can start dismissing this data as meaning anything beyond an indicator of support from certain online communities...the ones that run up polls & spread disinformation. In sharing this data, Google is spreading disinformation.

In reporting on this Google data, media is amplifying disinformation.

This is a vicious cycle

Yesterday @SRuhle had on L2 Inc founder @profgalloway in segment re:Netflix docu #TheGreatHack after chat w/director @JehaneNoujaim & prod @Karim_Amer33

~11:00, Ruhle asks Galloway about L2 link to Cambridge Analytica

[THREAD] to correct record..

msnbc.com/velshi-ruhle/w… .@SRuhle asks @profgalloway for comment on fact that Cambridge Analytica has listed L2 “..as a company they’ve worked with..or involved in their data sources..”

His response was complete denial.

Nothing shady about this answer -- Ruhle was talking to the wrong L2..

This story should be everywhere.

Folks, Brad Parscale is a fraud on so many levels. The Trump campaign and RNC may be cunning, but they are also sloppy. Did they really think this wouldn't be uncovered? Using models as stand-ins for voters in your ads is one thing, but the fact that they may be FOREIGNERS and no one bothered to check...

I really want to see more reporting on the private companies running Trump’s immigrant concentration camps. Please tell us more about who is collecting tax dollars nearly $800/day per child while failing to provide basic care & hygiene.

#FollowTheMoney I shouldn’t have to dig to get information on the contractors collecting my tax dollars.

Inform the public-

-What co’s collecting $ for Trump camps?
-Their experience/backstory?
-Who runs these co’s?
-How were they vetted?
-Scope of work?
-How are they held accountable?

Don’t just roll your eyes at these troll tactics. Inform your friends, family, neighbors, etc. Talk to people & help them identify the disinfo talking points.

They want to suppress votes
We’re not powerless
We can suppress their campaign impact Take your citizen journalism skills beyond Twitter. Donating time and money to campaigns is awesome but don’t overlook the smaller scale opportunities to be an activist in your own community.

Don’t assume people know better
Don’t assume anything

Share your knowledge

Folks, I want to be very transparent that I take the debates seriously & for that reason I will continue to call out Rep Tulsi Gabbard for the fraud she is. I refuse to let her RT-approved talking points get lost in shuffle of this intense ping pong match

#DemocraticDebate Tulsi’s admirers...

The intended audience of these hearings is not just the public, broadly. John Dean's testimony will serve as an appeal to McGahn, Hicks & other folks not fully cooperating w/House investigations. They are watching. Today will show them what the right thing to do looks like. People will write it off as a waste of time &/or political theater but they're missing the point.

Historical context, humanizing the experience of being a witness under pressure from a corrupt administration... this has value.

Fascinating story here for many reasons, one being this lines up with my findings in evaluating Trump 2016 marketing tracking links... After analyzing the Trump/Pence 2016 ad tracking, I believe that while RNC ran Trump's Facebook ads via Sprinklr throughout the general election, a different team was running his Twitter ads during the summer of 2016.

On plane with satellite TV, endless channel options; Guy in front of me watching Fox News whole flight but flips channel when Trump comes on. Turns to his wife and says “can’t stand this liar.” Hmm, interesting 🤔 The gentleman to my right, however, can’t get enough of Trump and his token farmers. He is multitasking: Fox News and a book of prayers.

So sick to my stomach watching these GOP state legislators trying to control women’s bodies. Honestly, I’m struggling to process the events of this week—this is some real scary shit 😔 To punish a rape victim for not wanting to birth the spawn of a man whose face is now burned into their brain and haunting their nightmares...

FFS I see humans but no humanity.
