The article shows how conservative religious groups and networks like the Federalist Society, the National Prayer and Chabad were infiltrated and/or manipulated by the Kremlin to support critical decisions like Kavanaugh's nomination. 👇 medium.com/@ZarinaZabrisk…
This thread+article show that, willingly or not, the Federalist Society, Fellowship Foundation, The National Breakfast Prayer, Russian Orthodox Church, and Chabad movement are being instrumental in lifting the economic sanctions against the Russian oligarchs & officials.
Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies is behind Kavanaugh and other Trump’s judicial nominees. Leonard Leo, Executive Vice President a member of the board of an outside adviser to Trump on the Supreme Court and related judicial selection and confirmation issues.
2. Leo is also on the Board of the Ethics and Public Policy Center (EPPC), a premier institute dedicated to applying the Judeo-Christian moral tradition to critical issues of public policy.
3. Ed Whelan, the President of the Ethics and Public Policy Center (EPPC) and a longterm friend of Kavanaugh, shared his theory about a “person resembling Kavanaugh” on social media and hours after that offered his resignation to the EPPC. EPPC had him take a leave of absence.
4. Whelan “worked for Creative Response Concepts, Inc. (CRC), the prominent Alexandria, Virginia-based P.R. firm, that guided him during his Kavanaugh public defense,” as reported by Politico.
5. A former CRC employee, Garrett Ventry, had been working for Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley.
6. CRC was registered in 2005 as a foreign agent for Viktor Yanukovych, Putin’s puppet/former president of Ukraine who fled to Russia after the Ukrainian people rebelled against the Kremlin rule.
7. Paul Manafort personally advised Yanukovich from 2006–07 to 2012.
8. Manafort was introduced to Yanukovich by Rinat Akhmetov, a Ukrainian oligarch. An official Ukrainian Ministry of Internal Affairs report identified Akhmetov as a leader of an organized crime syndicate. He has allegedly financed the Russian separatists in South-Eastern Ukraine.
9. Manafort and a Russian oligarch and Putin’s ally, Oleg Deripaska go back to 2007.
10. We will get back to Deripaska via the National Prayer Breakfast is held by Fellowship, also known as The Family, and the International Foundation. Doug Burleigh is currently a leader of the National Prayer Breakfast...
10.1. ...He took over after the longtime leader Doug Coe, Burleigh’s father-in-law, died in February 2017. Both Dough Coe and Dough Burleigh have ties to the Russian officials.
11. Doug Coe had a close friendship with Boris Birshtein, an émigré from the USSR and allegedly a (double) agent of the KGB and Mossad” with confirmed organized crime connections.
12. Birshtein’s network of companies Seabeco (Siabeco) was created by the KGB to finance the secret services projects and launder money.
13. Birshtein is/was involved with Solntsevo organized crime group, ranked the highest by revenue by Fortune in 2014.
14. Birshtein is known to be a partner of Semion Mogilevich and Sergey Mikhailov, the bosses of Solntsevo organized crime group.
15. Birshtein has decades of helping the Kremlin’s puppet regimes around the world. Importantly, Birshtein helped to finance presidential campaigns of Leonid Kuchma and Vladimir Yanukovich, Putin’s puppets in Ukraine.
16. Birshtein’s son-in-law and life-long business partner, USSR-born Alex Schnaider was a Trump’s partner in Toronto Trump Tower and has ties to the Kremlin.
17. Remember Deripaska? In 2008, Birshtein collaborated with the FBI on Robert Levinson’s case, negotiating the conditions of the Russian billionaire and Putin’s close ally Oleg Deripaska’s entry into the US despite of the organized crime status.
18. Birshtein had ties with “Kazakh Trio” that controlled Bayrock Group, a company that was a strategic partner and one of the financing parties for the Trump SoHo in NY and developments in Arizona and Florida.
19. Felix Satter was yet another Russian organized crime connection in Bayrock Group — Trump. He was closely involved with the Sapirs, Tarik Arif and Michael Cohen. He also belongs to a religious group called Chabad.
20. Another Trump’s partner in the Soho project was Tamir Sapir (Temur Sepiashvili), USSR-born emigre who studied in Moscow in the Ministry of Internal Affairs School.
20. Sapir was also a part of the Chabad movement. At a ceremony hosted by Trump in Mar-a-Lago, Sapir’s daughter Zina who once worked for Prudential Douglas Elliman, married Rotem Rosen, a right-hand man of Lev Leviev, an ally of Putin.
21. Douglas Elliman founder/executive and owners Howard Lorber and Ben LeBow brought Trump to Moscow in November 1996 and arranged discussions about a joint venture between their tobacco factory, Trump Organization and with the Moscow authorities, namely Moscow Mayor Yuri Luzhkov
22. Rosen is a partner of Alex Sapir, the son of Tamir Sapir. Rosen and Alex Sapir accompanied Trump on 2013 visit to Russia and met with the Agalarovs.
23. Rotem Rosen is a close friend of Michael Cohen and appeared in public in an open demonstration of support for Cohen in 2018, during the court hearing in NY after FBI raided Cohen’s office and residence.
24. Soviet-born Israeli billionaire Lev Leviev, an oligarch with longstanding ties to Putin along with “Roman Abramovich, who would go on to become Chabad’s biggest patrons worldwide, to create the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia.”
25. In 2008, Leviev sold real estate to Prevezon, a company owned by Denis Katsyv, the son of a former Russian government minister, Petr Katsyv.
26. Prevezon used the Leviev transaction to help launder millions of the Russian government’s illegal proceeds from its Magnitsky-related historic tax fraud scam (an issue on which Denis Katsyv and Yakunin both lobbied U.S. lawmakers.)
27. Remember Manafort? During the 2016 presidential election Manafort, Donald Trump Jr., and Jared Kushner met a confirmed Kremlin informant Natalia Veselnitskaya, a lawyer who represented Denis Katsyv’s Prevezon and whose husband worked for the father of Denis Katsyv.
28. The Prevezon case had initially been brought by Preet Bharara, whom Trump fired in 2017.
29. Back to Birshtein. Birshtein had close ties with Igor Makarov, Itera’s founder and Chairman of the Board of Directors. Itera was registered in Florida, a “middleman” company that had the rights to supply natural gas to heavily-dependent Ukraine by buying it from Gazprom.

34. Dahl is also on the board of Russian-American Christian University, a member of the US-Russian Council. The Board Members of the US-Russian Council include Herman Gref, the chief executive of Sberbank, whom Trump met at a restaurant in Moscow at Miss Universe pageant in 2013.
34.1. and Daniel H. Yergin who was on Trump’s ‘President’s Strategic and Policy Forum,’ in 2016.
35. Doug Burleigh is a son-in-law of the deceased Doug Coe who took over the Fellowship Foundation. Burleigh was visiting Russia for 52 years and speaks some Russian that he used in his speech and interview during the First Youth Business Prayer Breakfast in Moscow on May 2015.
36. In Moscow, Burleigh presented with the Vice President of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation Alexander Torshin, Putin’s advisor Sergey Glaziev, the Vice President of Lukoil Andrey Gaydamaka and other influential officials.
37. After the speech, Burleigh gave an interview to Andrey Tunyaev, the chief-editor of President, a magazine distributed at the administration of the Russian Federation president and government offices. Tunyaev is a part of the President Putin’s security service.
38. Alexander Torshin and Butina attended National Prayer Breakfast in the US in 2017. Maria Butina was indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of conspiracy and acting as an unregistered foreign agent for the Russian Federation.
39. Butina’s promotional activities for Russian political interests included attending the National Prayer Breakfast twice, according to the New York Times.
40. On December 16, 2016, Pravmir.ru, a Russian Orthodox website sponsored by the Russian government and managed by a professional propagandist working for the administration of the Russian president, published an article by Mark Judge.
41. Pravmir is one of many non-commercial, supposedly independent media agencies, active and popular in Russia, publishing in Russian and English. These agencies are supported and sponsored by the Russian government or/and by the oligarchs close to Putin and the Kremlin.
42. Here is the article on Pravmir and Mark Judge: medium.com/@ZarinaZabrisk…
42. An article on why Kavanaugh's nomination is critical for stopping the investigation and how it worked in Russia: medium.com/@ZarinaZabrisk…
43. An article with more materials on Kavanaugh, by different investigators: medium.com/@ZarinaZabrisk…
44. One of the most important articles I've written since November 2, 2016. Kavanaugh's confirmation is at the core of it because it will give the people in power a chance to stop the investigation into their crimes. The democracy will then turn into tyranny.
45. The central figure in this story is not Kavanaugh, though, but a strange, eerie and cartoonish figure of a fellow immigrant from the USSR, Boris Birshtein. He brings together the KGB/FSB and ruthless killers and thieves, "red directors" and oligarchs, conservative Christians-
46. .., members of Chabad, Muslims and atheists together in a 50-year-old chase of gold and power--through continents and eras. The very depth of our humanity is turned into gambling chips. Oil, gas and dollars are at the core; the front is glittery cupolas.

Thread. Nazi--#Kavanaugh posters found yesterday on the campus of Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, NY and all around the Hudson Valley region. Designed by The Daily Stormer (a reference to “Der Stürmer,” the Nazi tabloid), a webzine formerly known as Total Fascism.
2. Daily Stormer was launched in 2013 by Andrew Anglin, who embraced a Nazi ideology on the Daily Stormer.
3. Dailystormer.com was getting more than 10 million page views until it was shut down by GoDaddy and Google after remarks about the activist murdered in Charlottesville. It then briefly reappeared on a Russian domain.

Thread re the FBI "investigation": Chris Wray was, like Kavanaugh, a Trump's nominee. He worked for a law company, representing Gazprom, Rosneft, Sberbank and Alfa Bank on issues related to sanctions. Moscow partner of King and Spalding is Wray’s partner & friend since childhood.
1.Wray had multiple connections that were covered in the process of his confirmation. medium.com/@ZarinaZabrisk…
2. Wray silently reshapes the FBI: In January, McCabe said he felt pressure to leave the FBI. In August, Peter Strzok, who helped lead the bureau's investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, was fired for texting anti-Trump messages.
