🔥In Jul/Aug'16, FBI warned Trump👉🏼foreign adversaries, incl #Russia🇷🇺, would try to spy on/infiltrate his campaign.🤔

By then, *at least 7 Trump campaign aides* had been in contact w/Russians or ppl linked to Russia👉🏼NEVER reported it to FBI‼️ 1/
*After the FBI warning*, Trump Jr exchanged Twitter messages in Sept w/Wikileaks, which USIC publicly accused in Oct of acting as an agent in #Russia's🇷🇺covert operation to interfere in the election.🤨 2/
Meantime, Jeff Sessions, who was running Team🇷🇺Trump's foreign policy op, met w/#Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak in his Senate office👉🏼FAILED to disclose during his confirmation hearing or on his SF-86 (a *felony*). 3/
🔥Fmr FBI counterintel agent: "If we're telling these guys stuff and they are not acting on it, then we're going to keep that as EVIDENCE." 4/

Frank Figliuzzi (fmr head of FBI counterintel) said counterintel briefings "provide an opportunity for investigative subjects to be transparent w/the bureau & to come back if such contacts are occurring because of admonishments by the bureau."🤔 5/
💣If they fail to do notify FBI, fmr FBI CI head says, "a couple of factors could be at play: They didn't spread the message to the rest of the team or there is some form of GUILTY conscience that prohibits them." 🤫 6/


The Trump team had contacts w/#Russians🇷🇺throughout the campaign and NEVER reported them to FBI, *despite being specifically warned* that Russia was trying to infiltrate & spy on the campaign‼️ 7/
In May'16: Jr met at an NRA dinner w/a #Russian🇷🇺banker close to Putin who'd previously contacted the campaign saying he wanted to *pass on a message from Putin to Trump.

Did anyone alert the FBI⁉️

Nope.🙄 8/
Also in May'16, PapaD told Trump, Sessions & other top campaign brass that he had connections w/people who could facilitate a meeting btwn Trump & Putin.🤔

Did anyone alert the FBI⁉️

Nope.🙄 9/
In Jun'16, Jr, Manafort & KUSH held the #RussianLawyer🇷🇺meeting w/the Kremlin-connected lawyer, a "former" Russian spy & an alleged Russian money launderer to discuss #sanctions & Clinton kompromat.

Did anyone alert the FBI⁉️

Nope.🙄 10/
Jul'16, Manafort emailed his business partner, who "just happens" to be another "former" #Russian spy👉🏼offered private briefings on Trump campaign to Oleg Deripaska, a Russian🇷🇺oligarch close to Putin.🙄 11/
*After Trump took office*, senior FBI counterintel agents met w/Hope Hicks in the WH Situation Room at least twice to WARN her of suspicious emails from #Russians who had contacted her.🤨

Despite warnings & public scrutiny, NO ONE on Team🇷🇺Trump ever alerted the FBI‼️ 12/
NO WAY Trump, his spawn, or his minions can claim "ignorance" over the NUMEROUS #Russian🇷🇺contacts.

They were REPEATEDLY warned. Not only did they NEVER alert the FBI, they LIED on #NatSec clearance forms, LIED in confirmation hearings & LIED to FBI & Mueller‼️

PS: many thanks to my wonderful friend @ChristynRoyce for alerting me to this important story‼️🤗

Trump's deputy campaign chair Rick Gates solicited proposals (#felony) from Israeli firm Psy Group to create fake online personas, use social media manipulation & gather intel to help defeat @GOP primary opponents (@tedcruz) & @HillaryClinton🤨1/
Gates wasn't interested in Psy Group b/c other Trump aides oversaw social media. George Nader & Joel Zamel (Psy Group owner) met w/Don Jr & offered to help *THROW THE ELECTION* at an Aug'16 meeting arranged by Erik Prince‼️

Nader is COOPERATING.😎 2/

George Birnbaum (Arthur Finkelstein protégé/@GOP consultant who worked for Netanyahu & other Israeli officials) initially pitched Gates on using social media influence/manipulation to sway @GOP delegates toward Trump.🤨 3/

🔥@GOP operative Peter Smith raised >$100,000 to pay #Russian🇷🇺hackers to find Clinton’s emails. 10 days after telling his story to the @WSJ, he committed suicide, yet a friend spoke w/him about a new project hours before his death & says he was “excited.”
Smith continued his quest for HRC’s emails *after* the US warned of #Russian🇷🇺interference & went to extraordinary lengths to ensure secrecy, communicating via saved DRAFT (unsent) emails in a shared Gmail account.🤨
🔥One sent email said the >$100k in donations were to be sent to a DC-based scholarship fund for **Russian students**👉🏼“This $100k total with the $50k received from you (Smith) will allow us to fund the Washington Scholarship Fund for the Russian students for the promised $150K.”

Hey @SenatorCollins,

It’s not too late to change your vote! #Kavanaugh LIED to the Senate (#felony) about his finances.🤨

Who paid off his debt? If his family paid, did he report this income to the IRS⁉️

If the House flips, @tedlieu WILL investigate‼️

Hey @lisamurkowski,

You were right and courageous to OPPOSE #Kavanaugh‼️

You might want to reconsider “pairing” your vote with @SteveDaines, because justice will come for #Kavanaugh, sooner than later.😉

Hey @Sen_JoeManchin,

We Democrats realize that you are in a tough re-election battle, but backing #Kavanaugh only brings you more scorn from the @GOP and erodes your much-needed support from @TheDemocrats base.

It’s not too late: vote NO on #Kavanaugh‼️

Connie Chung to Dr. Ford: “I, too, was sexually assaulted—not 36 years ago but ~50 years ago. I kept my dirty little secret to myself. Silence for 5 decades...The exact date & year are fuzzy. But details of the event are vivid—forever seared in my memory.”
Connie Chung: “Christine, I, too, am terrified as I reveal this publicly. I can’t sleep. I can’t eat. Can you? If you can’t, I understand. I am frightened, I am scared, I can’t even cry.”😰

Chung: “I wish I could forget this truthful event, but I cannot because it is the truth. I am writing to you b/c I know that exact dates, exact years are insignificant. We remember exactly what happened to us & who did it to us. We remember the truth forever.”

I #BelieveHer.❤️

Charles Ludington, a former varsity basketball player & friend of #Kavanaugh at @Yale plans to deliver a statement to the @FBI field office in Raleigh on Monday detailing **violent drunken behavior** by Kavanaugh in college. 1/

Ludington says #Kavanaugh initiated a fight that led to the ARREST of a friend: “When Brett got drunk, he was often belligerent & aggressive...” 2/
“On one of the last occasions I purposely socialized with Brett, I witnessed him respond to a semi-hostile remark, not by defusing the situation, but by throwing his beer in the man’s face and starting a fight that ended with one of our mutual friends in jail.”😳 3/

Rod Rosenstein suggested last year that he secretly record Trump to expose "chaos" consuming the administration & discussed recruiting cabinet members to invoke the #25thAmendment.

Will Trump use this as an excuse to fire Rosenstein⁉️

Rosenstein made his remarks about the #25thAmendment & secretly recording Trump in meetings & conversations w/other DOJ & FBI officials. Several people (briefed either on the events themselves or on memos written by FBI officials, including McCabe) described the episodes.🤨
Rosenstein reportedly told McCabe that he might be able to persuade Jeff Sessions & John Kelly to mount an effort to invoke the #25thAmendment.

All of these incidents allegedly occurred around the time that @Comey was fired. Rosenstein was very distressed & felt he was used.🤔
