This thread is about @realDonaldTrump, Michael Cohen, Brad Parscale, Elliott Brody, @GOP, Cambridge Analytica, #SteveBannon, Robert Mercer, strange addresses, millions of dollars and federal election law. @profcarroll @WendySiegelman @brendan_fischer @psstricia @politico 1/22
@parscale, whose digital company - in tandem with Cambridge Analytica - was vital to Trump's 2016 win, is now his 2020 campaign manager. In 2017 he told the San Antonio @ExpressNews he was moving his company to Florida for access to a larger airport. 2/22…
Parscale Strategy LLC. was registered with the state of Florida on 8-8-17. The address listed was 2637 E. Atlantic Blvd., Pompano Beach. That is a Parcels Plus store. Parscale dissolved his company on 3-27-18. It only existed for five months. 3/22…
In that five-month span, while registered at the Parcels Plus store in Florida, Parscale Strategy LLC received $3,029,862.66 from the Republican National Committee, according to Federal Election Commission records. That's not even counting PAC money he received. 4/22
Parscale Strategy received a total of $4,882,067.27 from the RNC at the Parcels Plus address. For some reason, the RNC paid the company an additional $1,852,204.61 at the address after Parscale had dissolved the company. 5/22
Michael Cohen was deputy national finance chair of the RNC when Parscale's company was paid the money in Florida. Cohen pleaded guilty in August to paying two women for their silence regarding affairs with Trump prior to the election, a violation of campaign finance law. 6/22
Elliott Brody was also finance chair of the RNC at the time. He resigned after it was revealed he paid a woman $1.6 million in exchange for her silence regarding a sexual affair. 7/22
Parscale's Florida company was listed at the same Parcels Plus address - 2637 E. Atlantic Blvd. - as Steve Bannon's ex-wife - Diane Clohesy - once used for her voter registration address in 2013. 8/22
In Feb. 2013, Bannon rented a house in Coconut Grove (Dade County) for Clohesy, paying the $5,000 a month rent. 3 months later Clohesy registered to vote at the Parcels Plus store in Pompano, 39 miles away from her house and in Broward County. She never voted in Florida. 9/22
Bannon, meanwhile, registered to vote in Florida using Clohesy's Coconut Grove house, the one she wasn't registered at. Bannon never voted in Florida either, but curiously he would use other addresses in Fl. for his voter registration as well. 10/22
Most likely it was coincidence that Parscale and Bannon were associated with the same store in Fl. Still, Parscale once told Bloomberg News: "I listen to Jared and Steve. Those are my guys. Jared tells me to listen to Bannon and I listen to Bannon. I'm the family guy.'' 11/22
Bannon gave birth to Cambridge Analytica, even naming it, and CA worked with Parscale's company in the 2016 campaign. Bannon had a stake in CA between $1 million and $5 million and it was Bannon who brought mega-donors Robert and Rebekah Mercer into the CA fold. 12/22
Robert Mercer's Super PAC- Make America Number 1 - made some sizable payments to CA when Bannon held a stake in the company and was also CEO of Trump's campaign. Some of the following has not been reported previously. 13/22
Bannon took over Trump's campaign on August 17, 2016. In September 2016 Make America No. 1 paid CA $899,633. On Sept. 1, CA received a payment of $301,763 from the PAC for "campaign management consulting services.'' Bannon was never officially paid to run Trump's campaign. 14/22
In Oct. 2016 Mercer's PAC paid CA $1,935,980. And on Oct. 3 another identical payment of $301,763 was made to CA for "campaign management consulting services.'' Again, Bannon was never officially paid to run Trump's campaign, much like Paul Manafort ran it for "free.'' 15/22
What's odd is that addresses for Cambridge Analytica were amended several times in filings with the Federal Election Commission as they pertained to the payments CA received from Mercer's Super PAC. 16/22
For example, in the original filings with the FEC concerning the payments, Cambridge Analytica's address was listed as 1 Wales Alley, Suite 300, Alexandria, Va. 17/22
On 2-21-17 the address for CA was amended with the FEC to 8383 Wilshire Blvd, Suite 1000, Beverly Hills, Ca., where Bannon supposedly has an office. SCL USA, the parent company of CA, and Alexander Nix, also used that address. So did Bannon Strategic Advisors among others. 18/22
On 5-22-17, when Bannon was still a senior official in the White House, the address was changed back again - from Bannon's Beverly Hills office to Alexandria, Va. So to recap: Cambridge Analytica went from Va. to Bannon's office in Ca. and back to Va. for some reason. 19/22
Same thing happened with Glittering Steel, the film company owned by Bannon and Rebekah Mercer. In Sept. 2016, Glittering Steel received $77,500 from Make America No. 1. The next month Glittering Steel was paid $90,500. R. Mercer was in charge of the PAC's finances then. 20/22
Glittering Steel's original address filed with the FEC was 2776 S. Arlington Mill Dr. in Va. That's a UPS store. On 2-21-17 it was changed to Bannon's Beverly Hills office. On 5-22-17 it was changed back to the UPS store. Same change dates as Cambridge Analytica. 21/22
Coming soon: Steve Bannon's phony Florida addresses and what they may have had to do with the unauthorized use of 56 million Facebook profiles to win an election. @chrisinsilico. Also look for my column in Tuesday's @HeraldTribune on Robert Mueller, the @FBI and a 9/11 coverup.
Correction: Elliott Broidy.

(THREAD 1/8) #SteveBannon's documentary Trump @ War is being released Sunday. It was produced by his company Victory Film Group. The company does not appear to exist. It does not seem to be active on any state business registry.
(2/8) Bannon dissolved Victory Film Group on April 13, 2017, when he was in the WH. It was registered in Cal. The address was 8391 Beverly Blvd. That's a UPS store. Bannon has a pattern of using UPS stores for business and phony addresses for voting.…
(3/8) Three days before Bannon shut down Victory Film Group he dissolved Victory Film Project in Florida. Bannon used Andy Badolato's Sarasota office address for VFP. Badolato has been involved with the mob, has laundered money and was accused of sexual assault by 3 women.
