1/ Let’s take a close look at these indictments handed down today, shall we? (justice.gov/file/1080281/d…)
2/ Count One is Conspiracy to Commit an Offense Against the US. It is alleged that Russia, through its military intel agency (GRU) engaged in large-scale cyber intrusion operations and staged release of documents to interfere in the 2016 election.
3/ In paragraph 8, indictment alleges those charged “conspired with each other, *AND WITH PERSONS KNOWN AND UNKNOWN TO THE GRAND JURY*” —this implies there are *UNCHARGED CO-CONSPIRATORS*. Acts began in March, 2016. Releases began in June, 2016, continuing through November 2016.
4/ The indictment provides details about the GRU conspirators. Of note is that these are high level Russian military operatives. This was a direct act of war.
5/ The indictment describes the spearfishing efforts conducted against the Clinton campaign. (Podesta)
6/ The conspirators hacked the DCCC network with malware and keystroke software. They captured communications about fundraising and voter outreach.
7/ The conspirators hacked the DNC network through their access of the DCCC network. They then installed malware and keystroke software on the DNC servers. They also viewed the DCCC’s online banking information. 😱
8/ The conspirators stole opposition research files and thousands of emails from the DNC and DCCC servers.
9/ After being detected, the conspirators persisted in their hacking efforts.
10/ The day prior to @DonaldJTrumpJr meeting with the Russian spies in Trump Tower, these indicted GRU agents populated dcleaks.com with the hacked data stolen from the DCCC & DNC. The efforts were funded with Bitcoin.
11/ They also opened social media accounts and began pushing anti-Hillary propaganda, such as the hashtag #BlacksAgainstHillary
12/ Guccifer 2.0 was GRU. Note para 43 reference to “certain individuals.” These would likely be (as yet, unindicted) co-conspirators. Also note 43c reference to a reporter who received stolen docs. **Para 44 references person who may be Roger Stone.**
13/ “Organization 1” is Wikileaks (though the indictment does not say this). Note para 47a, Wikileaks’ desire to stoke division between Hillary and Bernie voters. Wikileaks failed to disclose Guccifer 2.0 as its source and Wikileaks timed its releases to harm Hillary.
14/ Statutory allegations for Count 1. Please note that this count of conspiracy opens the floodgates to charging numerous other (as yet, uncharged) co-conspirators.
15/ Counts 2-9 — Aggravated Identity Theft. The “aggravated” means it is an enhanced charge under the federal sentencing guidelines.
16/ Count 11 is another Conspiracy charge, but relates to the hacking of state boards of elections, secretaries of state, election software companies, etc. This count is VERY CONCERNING. Rosenstein chose his words carefully today.
17/ Rosenstein merely stated that there was no allegation “in this indictment” that vote totals or that election outcomes had been altered. At this time, we should not jump to conclusions, EITHER WAY. We must wait for more evidence from Mueller’s investigation.
18/ As usual, the Government includes a request for Forfeiture. Because this indictment is against Russian agents, forfeiture may be pursued against the GRU itself.
19/ Here is @SecPompeo pimping for the GRU.
20/ July 25, 2016.
21/ 78/ This text was sent on AUGUST 11, 2016, by the Trump campaign to millions who subscribed to his campaign updates. Wikileaks is the “news outlets”. The emails stolen by Russia were a centerpiece of Trump’s campaign.
22/ June 9, 2016 — 20 minutes after the meeting between @DonaldJTrumpJr and the Kremlin spies.
23/ Here is @DonaldJTrumpJr pimping for the GRU in September, 2016:
24/ Here is @realDonaldTrump pimping for the GRU on October 12, 2016:
25/ Using Trump Twitter ID, @parscale coordinated targeted cyber voter campaigns with the GRU. (bloomberg.com/news/articles/…)
26/ Trump views truth as a trap: “Told that members of his incoming Cabinet had already publicly backed the intelligence report on Russia, Trump shot back, “So what?” Admitting that the Kremlin had hacked Democratic Party emails, he said, was a “trap.”” (washingtonpost.com/graphics/2017/…)
27/ Oct 3—@DonaldJTrumpJr to WikiLeaks: “What’s behind this Wednesday leak I keep reading about?”
Oct 7—WikiLeaks releases Podesta emails
Oct 10—Trump publicly “I love Wikileaks!”
Oct 12—Wikileaks to Don Jr “Hey Donald, great to see you & your dad talking about our publications”
28/ To be exact, @DonaldJTrumpJr met with 30+ Russian and pro-Russian individuals on October 11, 2016, in Paris. That is only what we know about. The following day on October 12, Don Jr communicated with Wikileaks. wsj.com/articles/donal…
29/ All the while, @realDonaldTrump was gaslighting American citizens, while abusing @HillaryClinton
30/ The NYT (which we all know Trump reads), published a report on July 26, 2016, saying US intelligence agencies told the White House they were “highly confident” that the Russian government hacked the DNC. nytimes.com/2016/07/27/us/…
31/ The very next day, Trump publicly called for Russian govt to hack Clinton private email server: “Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing. I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.” washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/w…
32/ The June 9 meeting was attended by a “Russian government attorney” who was present for the purpose of providing incriminating information about Hillary in an effort to interfere with our democratic election. End of story.
33/ June 7-Trump promises major speech on the Clintons. June 8- Jr forwards Goldstone email to Manafort and Kushner June 8- Trump meets with Brad Parscale at Trump Tower
34/ June 9-DJT, Jr, Manafort & Kushner meet w RU lawyer, RU FSB agent, RU mobster & others.
June 9-(4:40 pm) Trump tweets about Hillary’s 33,000 emails.
June 14-DNC states it was hacked by Russians.
June 15-hacked documents posted by Guccifer 2.0, a Russian intelligence group.
35/ July 5: Carter Page travels to Moscow
July 7: Manafort offers private briefings to Deripaska
36/ GOP congress persons met with GRU agents in Moscow in the spring of 2016.
37/ Say no more ...
38/ I meant to include this provision, which references a congressional candidate who obtained stolen documents from Guccifer 2.0 to use as opposition against his opponent. The identity of this candidate is unknown, and whether he won is unknown. However, I think it is Matt Gaetz
39/ Fairly sure this is why Trump tweeted assurances to Matt Gaetz today.
40/ Here are Roger Stone’s communications with Guccifer 2.0.
41/ A huge piece of this puzzle is that the RNC was also hacked in an effort to influence the outcome of the election AND US legislation/foreign policy. Before this is over, there will be indictments of RNC members who bowed collusively. thedailybeast.com/report-russian…
42/ The tainting of the RNC began long before the 2016 election. thedailybeast.com/putins-dirty-g…
43/ Roger Stone also colluded with Wikileaks.
44/ On September 16, 2016, Roger Stone announced that Wikileaks was about to dump Clinton emails, after he communicated with Guccifer 2.0.
45/ From August 8 through mid-September 2016, Roger Stone was communicating w Wikileaks AND with the Russian hacker Guccifer 2.0: m.soundcloud.com/bostonherald/r…
46/ Just 4-days after Roger Stone’s September 16, 2016, announcement that Wikileaks was getting ready to dump Clinton emails, @DonaldJTrumpJr was DM’ing directly with Wikileaks. 20-days after that, Don Jr met in Paris with up to 30 Russians/Kremlin influencers.
47/ Emails Roger Stone failed to turn over to congressional investigators obtained by @WSJ. "Please ask Assange for any State or [Hillary Clinton] e-mail from August 10 to August 30--particularly on August 20, 2011," reads one message. wsj.com/articles/roger…
48/ (May 2018): Roger Stone's finances being examined by special counsel Mueller cnn.com/2018/05/24/pol…
49/ Thomas Rid is with the third party vendor which identified the GRU hack of the DNC servers in real time when it happened.
50/ GRU asset brags about another GRU asset months after the election:
51/ @EricTrump pimping for the GRU on 11/3/16, singing Wikileaks’ praises:
52/ More Kremlin pimping by @EricTrump in the days before the election:
53/ Fox News and Eric Trump pushing GRU drugs in the days before the election.
54/ @DonaldJTrumpJr knowingly colluded with the GRU leading up to the election:
55/ Trump began citing to the Kremlin front Wikileaks in coordination w the Kremlin conspirators. He continued to cite to Wikileaks, even after being warned in August 2016 of Russian meddling. Trump cited to Kremlin Wikileaks 160 times in the last 30 days of the campaign—5x p day
56/ Trump did nothing to discourage the Kremlin assault on our democracy, and instead coordinated his rhetoric with the Kremlin. He began using the term “crooked Hillary” when the online Kremlin campaign did, and said he would “cage Hillary”.
57/ Erik Prince also knowingly colluded with the GRU. He gave this interview alleging false information on November 4, 2016, which was amplified by GRU Wikileaks.
58/ Also, on September 4, 2016 (the day he sent this tweet), Don Jr received the Wikileaks encryption key. All the while, Kremlin conspirators were wiring money to Trump surrogates to plan rallies. @DonaldJTrumpJr is a willing GRU asset.
59/ October 11, 2016, after being repeatly warned by USIC, Trump continued to serve as a willing GRU asset (while Don Jr was in Paris meeting with GRU agents).
60/ Trump publicly mentioned Wikileaks 160 times in last 30-days of campaign. That's over 5x per day. #Collusion politifact.com/truth-o-meter/…
61/ The Trump campaign made $230M in in its capacity as knowing, intentional GRU assets. Parscale Alamo cyber collusion with Wikileaks was a lucrative business to the Trump campaign, raking in $230M by mid-Oct '16. (bloomberg.com/news/articles/…)
62/ The Trump campaign knowingly colluded with the GRU in coordinating voter targeting with fake news and direct links to feloneously-obtained Wikileaks-GRU data. #Collusion (chicagotribune.com/news/nationwor…)
63/ This is no coincidence. Trump colluded with the GRU. @parscale colluded with the GRU. Their collusion was knowing and intentional. Period. (Id).
64/ Guido Lombardi (a far right friend of Trump with ties to far right European leaders) assist Trump in amplifying the GRU stolen data. politico.eu/article/trumps…
65/ “In June of 2015, I told Donald, ‘I’d love to help,'” said Lombardi. “‘I will take care of unofficial media. I will take care of students. I will take care of bikers. I will take care of all the crazies … There is no official connection so [no] liability.’ He said, ‘Great.'”
66/ Query: If the Kremlin interference did not affect the outcome of the election, as Trump people argue, and the GRU-Wikileaks crimes were not outcome-determinative, then why did Trump and his Merry Band of Putin lovers center Trump’s 2016 messaging on Wikileaks for months?
67/ Answer: Trump won by a combined TOTAL of 79,000 votes in WI, MI & PENN. Sanders voters, Stein voters and black voters were targeted by the GRU.
# of Stein votes/ Trump margin:

MI: 51,463 / 10,704
PA: 49,678 / 46,765
WI: 31,006 / 22,177
68/ In the summer of 2016, Russian trolls flooded pro-Bernie social media with anti-Hillary fake news sourced from Macedonia. Many Bernie supporters amplified these data points. huffingtonpost.com/entry/bernie-s…
69/ Trump knowingly and intentionally conspired with the GRU to win the election.

Senator Collins is waning on about interest groups against Kavanaugh but IGNORES dark money interest groups in support of Kavanaugh.
Senator Collins references Kavanaugh’s judicial record. She disagrees w notion he will eliminate ACA protections, pointing to his dissent in Holder. She argues that his views on severability is narrow.
She addresses the concern about Kavanaugh protecting the POTUS. She argues that Kavanaugh defers to legislative authority. She argues Clinton got 2 justices confirmed while under Whitewater investigation and 3 Nixon appointees ruled against Nixon ruled against Nixon.

1/ Here is what really bothers me about Kavanaugh: he feels he deserves everything he has and will have because he has earned it. This is a uniquely Calvinist-origin ideology. It is also precisely one of the things which **theologically** distinguishes Catholics from Protestants.
2/ The implications are enormous if one considers the reverse scenario: those to whom life has brought hardship are unworthy, lazy, and have not “earned” their way. Protestant-Calvinist thinking is deeply entrenched in American culture, especially at Yale. christianity.com/church/denomin…
3/ If Kavanaugh adhered to Catholic teaching, he would have by this age internalized that it is mandatory we give a preferential option to the poor. He would practice the Corporal Works of Mercy. He would NOT insist that his success is due to his own merit or worth.

A new article discussing Deripaska, Steele, Waldman, and Assange by @IgnatiusPost requires some serious unpacking. Christopher Steele worked for Deripaska in 2012. (washingtonpost.com/opinions/a-gop…)
Deripaska was interviewed by the FBI in 2015, 2016, and possibly in 2017.
In 2009, while Mueller was FBI Director, the FBI conducted a covert outreach to Deripaska to locate missing CIA contractor Robert Levinson. (I believe this was accomplished through John McCain).

1/ Let’s look behind impious Catholics and their pink flamingos () and Catholic Kellyann Conway self-righteous-types tub shitters (), and dissect the “Kavanaugh Catholic” — with the caveat I, too am a Catholic.
2/ First, we all witnessed Kavanaugh last night make several public pronouncements, to wit:
“I was a virgin.”
“I was busy studying.”
“I was the Captain of my football team.”
“I have never sexually assaulted anyone, ever.”
3/ Kavanaugh had his wife by his side, who vouched for him throughout. He also claimed to have spent his career as a champion for women and women’s issues. Neither Kavanaugh nor his wife (whom he met after high school) addressed the bevy of mounting evidence against him.

What this means is that the Kremlin is weighing in. Drudge Report is a Kremlin conduit. This party just got started.
Here's how the Russians targeted Ohio for the 2016 election (using Drudge Report) dispatch.com/news/20180220/…
As of mid-September 2016, Drudge Report had linked to state Russian media 91x in 2016. It's a Putin arm. mediamatters.org/blog/2016/09/1…

In accordance w the Violence Against Women & Department of Justice Reauthorization Act of 2013 (“VAWA 2013”), officers and/or investigators may not require victims of sexual assault to submit to a polygraph test or other truth-telling devices.
POLICY AND TRAINING CONTENT GUIDELINES — The Senate Judiciary Committee is doing everything WRONG.
The unwarranted exertion of control by @ChuckGrassley over a putative sexual assault victim violates every single guideline recommendation of the Intl Assoc of Chiefs of Police.
