1. This needs to be threaded bc the connections Broidy has directly to the Russia investigation are multiple and widespread. AND this specific new investigation is about? CHINA. You know, the other can of worms that hasn't been quite opened yet.
2. "The Justice Department is investigating whether longtime Republican fundraiser Elliott Broidy sought to sell his influence with the Trump administration by offering to deliver U.S. government actions for foreign officials in exchange for tens of millions of dollars."
3. "As part of the investigation, prosecutors are scrutinizing a plan that Broidy allegedly developed to try to persuade the Trump govt to extradite a Chinese dissident back to his home country, a move sought by Chinese President Xi Jinping, according to two of the people."
4. DoJ is also investigating "claims that Broidy sought $75 million from a Malaysian business official if the Justice Department ended its investigation of a development fund run by the Malaysian government." SEVENTY-FIVE million dollars in corruption money.
5. Grifters and corrupted individuals never have enough, so on top of this, don't forget Broidy's direct involvement with the United Arab Emirates, that included Nader, WHO FLIPPED. So Mueller has all the details in that case, STRAIGHT from source.

6. "In recent weeks, prosecutors with the Justice Department’s public integrity section — which examines possible political and government corruption — have sought documents related to Broidy’s business dealings." So this is an EXTRA investigation on top of Mueller's.
7. "Among the information sought by investigators are details about Broidy’s work on behalf of and interactions with the Chinese and Malaysian officials". Looks like Broidy has an "East" penchant. Be it Middle or Far, that's where he goes to make that extra corruption money.
8. "As part of their efforts, prosecutors have subpoenaed casino magnate Steve Wynn, the former RNC finance chairman and longtime Trump friend, for copies of records and communications related to Broidy." Oh and his lawyer is all "no comment, but he's cooperating".
9. In case y'all forgot, WaPo reminds you that earlier this year, Wynn stepped down from his RNC lead fundraiser post AND from his executive role at his resort company bc OOPS, sexual misconduct. Naturally, it was Trump who chose him to serve as RNC lead fundraiser.
10. And in case you forgot the OTHER part, Broidy is the one who supposedly paid former Playmate Shera Bechard $1.6 mln to abort their love child and keep silent about the affair. And he did so via? MICHAEL COHEN of course.
11. Bechard's lawyer was? Keith Davidson of freaking course. The same one Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal had. MCDougal AND Bechard have now accused him of colluding with Cohen to get them to sign deals, as opposed to appropriately representing them.
12. Bechard sued Broidy this past July for not paying an installment of the agreed amount of money on July 1. Broidy tried to claim he must not pay bc information of the affair is now public. Yeah, Pillsbury doughboy, that's not how this works.
13. Back to the matter at hand, everything is connected. Broidy's effort to get the Chinese exile (Mr. Guo) back to China was made via EMIRATI channels. "Broidy drafted a plan to enlist Emirati officials to pressure the United States to turn over Guo."
14. This happened after Wynn separately helped deliver a message from the Chinese govt seeking to have the Chinese exile returned to them, per WaPo. Wynn hand-delivered a letter to Trump seeking Guo's deportation, per a WSJ report earlier this year.
15. Trump OF COURSE was all too eager to help the Chinese with their wish, except senior law enforcement officials were all "NOPE, bozo." So the corruption here, or do ut des (I give you so that you give me) includes Broidy, Wynn and Trump directly.
16. To recap, Broidy is embroiled in massive corruption attempts with the UAE AND China as well as Malaysia. Plus he supposedly paid off a former Playmate to have an abortion when she got pregnant with their love child. Payment and all organized via? Cohen of course.
17. There are theories outt here, even written by NY MAG, that Broidy was just a place holder in the PLaymate thing and that was actually TRUMP's love child, but there is no evidence to support the theory (Yet, I should say, bc at this point...)
18. Broidy is under investigation BOTH by Mueller, who has asked questions about him bc he shared the memo I quoted from my March thread with NADER, who flipped so told Mueller, AND by DoJ for this separate case. Safe to say, an indictment with Broidy's name on it is LIKELY.
19. And since people like Broidy really DO NOT do well in prison, if an indictment comes, a plea deal is VERY likely to follow. With all the consequences of the case, considering all Broidy is embroiled with and all he knows. VERY bad news for Trump. #MuellerIsComing /END

1. Simon Kukes, a Houston-based oil executive, sent an email to a Russian official in Moscow in July 2016, boasting of his connections to Trump campaign and requesting a face-to-face meeting. The official is Vyacheslav Pavlovsky, a former Russian ambassador to Norway.
2. NBC HAS THE EMAILS. Kukes wrote to Pavlovsky" I have been actively involved in Trump's election campagn, and am part of the group on strategy deveopment. I will be in Switzerland July 20 to Aug. 2. Let me know how you are doing and whether you want to meet." Oh. OH.
3. NBC obtained emails through a London-based investigative project funded by MIkhail Khodorkovsky, a Russian opposition figure. The Dossier Center gathers information to try to expose high-level corruption in Moscow. NBC reviewed the emails in conjunction with The Guardian.

1. MANAFORT AGREED TO PLEA DEAL WITH MUELLER. Politely bear in mind, no matter what we actually SEE of this, given the evidence Mueller has, there's NO WAY Mueller entered a plea deal without meaningful cooperation. The cooperation part? Can easily be sealed.
2. This means Manafort could easily do the same as Cohen. Just plead guilty to n. counts, and we don't see any "cooperation" agreement. That doesn't mean it doesn't exist. The two can easily be separated, with the cooperation agreement sealed for obvious reasons here.
3. I absolutely don't think the news about the "joint defense agreement" is current and I also think it is being put out for a specific reason. It's clear that there's been coordinated effort to make everyone think Manafort won't "flip" . That's the easiest way to protect him.

1. Manafort is INDEED in talks with prosecutors (MEANING MUELLER bc HE is the prosecutor in this case) about a possible plea deal. BLOOP, people. BLOOP!
2. Two people familiar with the matter "cautioned that the negotiations may not result in a deal with special counsel Robert Mueller". Naturally, bc there won't be a deal unless Manafort sings like the birdiest birdie that has ever sung.
3. "But the discussions indicate a possible shift in strategy for Manafort" No kidding. When the prospect of the rest of his life in prison materialized, Manafort finally saw that oopsie, he was cornered and if he ever wanted to enjoy life again? Best to talk to Mueller, stat.

OH IMAGINE THAT. Guess who knows all about this? Michael Cohen. Who took care of this type of business. FOR TRUMP.
2. The details of the story are BEYOND disgusting but pay attention to this detail that former Playmate Shera Bechard cites in her LAWSUIT against Broidy: "Bechard recalled Broidy telling her that he admired Trump’s "uncanny ability to sexually abuse women and get away with it.""
3. "Among Bechard’s allegations are that Broidy refused to wear condoms and didn’t disclose to her that he had genital herpes until years after their sexual relationship, according to a court filing. "
Not even going to comment.

1. Bruce Ohr is the Justice Department lawyer who was told by Christopher Steele that Russian intelligence believed it had Trump "over a barrel". Start seeing why Trump is going after him?
2. These details pertain to a breakfast that happened on July 30, 2016. Ohr described the breakfast to CONGRESS this week in a private interview. And that's how the GOP Trump lackeys went to tell Trump, he found out and decided he can't have a witness at DoJ.
3. So if Trump so much as THINKS of touching Bruce Ohr, that is direct obstruction of justice, and his tweets already constitute witness tampering. AND everyone in Congress who was present at the interview KNOWS that. Just so you know who to hold accountable.

1. What Cohen's actually explosive knowledge of facts covers, that can make the entire house of cards crash: the hacking and the Trump Tower meeting, both of which TRUMP KNEW about and in the hacking case, an event Trump even encouraged.
2. In the case of the hacking, there's a $50,000 mysterious payment Cohen made to an undisclosed tech company to help the Trump campaign, that awfully sounds like the arrangements the Steele dossier says Cohen made to pay off Russian hackers "without it being traced".
3. Cohen's lawyer Lanny Davis specifically said on @maddow that Cohen has knowledge about the hacking that is of interest for Mueller. And the detail of the tech company payment emerged from the indictment. If the connection is accurate (and it seems like it is), this is huge.
