THREAD: Mueller probing attempts by the UAE to " buy political influence" by directing money to support Trump *during the campaign*‼️ 1/


h/t @PatriotLouUSA…
Mueller probing George Nader (Lebanese-American businessman)👉🏼adviser to the ruler of the UAE, and was frequent visitor to Trump’s WH.🤔

Mueller is probing Nader’s role in WH policymaking & whether UAE had influence on Trump's decision-making.🤨 2/
Mueller's focus on Nader could also prompt an examination of how money from MULTIPLE countries has flowed through and influenced DC during the Trump era.🤨

And notice that it's *not* #Russia this time, but the UAE!🤔

Recall that Kushner supported the *same* UAE (along w/Saudi Arabia) in its blockade of #Qatar, after Qatar refused to bail out 666 Fifth Ave.🤨 4/

The mysterious Mr. Nader has influential connections. Last fall he got a detailed report from a top Trump fund-raiser, Elliott BROIDY, about a *private meeting w/Trump* in the Oval Office‼️ 5/
Broidy is involved in shady business for other foreign countries.🤨

Broidy & his wife Robin Rosenzweig were trying to get paid $75 million to get DOJ to drop its probe into #Malaysia's 1MDB, a state-owned company of Malaysian PM Najib Razak.😳 6/…
Broidy owns a private security company w/hundreds of millions of dollars in contracts w/UAE. Broidy bragged to Trump about a paramilitary force that his company was developing for UAE.🤔 7/
Broidy also lobbied Trump to meet privately “in an informal setting” w/the UAE’s military commander & de facto ruler, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan; to back the UAE’s hawkish policies in the Middle East; and to *FIRE Rexxon Tillerson*.🤨 8/
Nader also made frequent trips to the WH early in Trump's reign, meeting w/ Stephen BANNON & Kush to discuss US policy toward the Persian Gulf states in advance of Trump’s Saudi Arabia trip in May'17.🤨

Gee, I wonder if BANNON told Mueller about him⁉️😎 9/
The NYTimes found out b/c a copy of Broidy’s memo about his Oval Office meeting w/Trump was provided "someone critical of the Emirati (UAE) influence in Washington."🤔

Might that be someone from #Qatar, perhaps⁉️😎 10/
Broidy said his memo had been stolen through "sophisticated hacking" adding, “We have reason to believe this hack was sponsored and carried out by registered and unregistered agents of #Qatar."🙄 11/
Nader is a "mysterious" guy, who worked w/the Clinton administration in the 1990's👉🏼played a "secretive role" trying to broker a peace deal btwn Israel & Syria.

“Then, he disappeared.”🤨 12/
No surprise, Erik Prince is involved in this latest twist.🙄

After Nader moved back to the Middle East, Prince hired Nader to help his company get business deals in Iraq.🤔 13/
By the 2016 election, Nader had become an adviser to Prince Mohammed of the UAE. Around the time of Trump’s inauguration, Nader first met Broidy, the #Republican fundraiser, a California-based investor who runs a private security company catering to Middle East governments.🤨 14/
Broidy’s security company, Circinus👉🏼Run by former US military officers & provides paramilitary services to US agencies and foreign governments, such as the UAE.🤔 15/
Broidy previously pleaded GUILTY to a misdemeanor for providing $1 million in illegal gifts to NY State pension authorities. In exchange, the NY state pension fund invested $250 million w/an Israeli-based investment management firm that Broidy had founded.🤬 16/

Nader became chummy w/Broidy and introduced him to Prince Mohammed. Broidy's company (Circinus) signed contracts w/UAE worth *several hundred million dollars*‼️ 17/
In return, Broidy sent a detailed memo to Nader's *ENCRYPTED email* recounting his advocacy for the UAE during his meeting w/Trump in the Oval Office amid an "afternoon of stops" throughout the WH.🤔

Who else did Broidy meet in the WH⁉️ 18/


Broidy reportedly sent the memo b/c the UAE's crown prince, Prince Mohammed, asked him to seek Trump's views on a counterterrorism task force.🤨 19/
Broidy repeatedly pressed Mr. Trump to meet privately with UAE Prince Mohammed (MBZ): “I offered that MBZ is available to come to the US very soon & preferred a quiet meeting in NY or NJ...Trump agreed that a meeting w/MBZ was a good idea.”🤔 20/
When a foreign dignitary comes to meet w/the US president, customarily, this occurs in the WH, where appropriate staff can also attend.

NOT secretly in a "private" location‼️ 21/
Broidy wrote that he had twice told HR McMaster that crown prince MBZ “preferred an informal setting to meet one-on-one w/Trump.” But McMaster said NO WAY. “McMaster smiled & replied that heads of state usually meet in the White House,” as “protocol dictates.”🙄 22/
Broidy was harshly critical of the crown prince’s neighbor * nemesis, #Qatar (who initially refused to bankroll Kush). Qatar is a US ally and is where we have our LARGEST military base in the Middle East.🤨

You can see why Mattis & McMaster weren't rolling w/this plan.🙄 23/
Trump also asked about Rexxon Tillerson — who had publicly criticized the isolation of Qatar — and Broidy said that Rexxon should be fired.🤔

Not that I'm a Rexxon fan, but it should NOT be the decision of a lobbyist for a FOREIGN COUNTRY who decides if he should be fired‼️24/
Here's another #SHOCKER: Broidy wrote that he & Trump “spoke for several minutes about politics & FUNDRAISING efforts for the midterm elections as well as the state of affairs at the RNC.🤬 25/

So Broidy was LOBBYING Trump for a foreign country, while at the same time discussing FUNDRAISING⁉️

This is a BIG no-no, and potentially ILLEGAL. And Mueller is ALL OVER this‼️26/

So the plot thickens (and gets more complicated). As mentioned before, the #TrumpCrimeFamily's corruption goes WELL BEYOND #Russia🇷🇺. Don't be surprised if KUSHNER gets connected to these shady dealings. Either way, this is MORE BAD NEWS for Trump‼️


PS: the UAE is the same country that arranged the #Seychelles meeting btwn Erik Prince & #Russian🇷🇺banker/Putin pal Kirill Dmitriev in an effort to establish a SECRET backchannel btwn Putin & Trump‼️

PS2: #UAE’s Crown Prince MBZ & his brother arranged Erik Prince’s secret #Seychelles meeting w/the head of the #Russian🇷🇺state investment fund (RDIF)/Putin pal Kirill Dmitriev.🤨

PS3: UAE Crown Prince MBZ *secretly* met w/Flynn, Kushner and Bannon in NYC in Dec’16. MBZ *violated protocol*👉🏼did NOT forewarn Obama officials of his visit, which was only discovered when his name was found on a flight manifest‼️🤔
🔥PS4: Flynn is cooperating w/Mueller, so Mueller *knows* what was discussed at this secret NY meeting, held about a month before the #Seychelles meeting btwn Erik Prince & the #Russian🇷🇺 that UAE’s Crown Prince MBZ arranged‼️

🔥@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.🤔
