THREAD: @cnn reported in April that Mueller is probing if #Russians🇷🇺 *illegally funneled* cash into Trump's campaign/inauguration. Mueller stopped a #Russian who traveled to the US & searched his electronics👉🏼it was VIKTOR VEKSELBERG‼️1/…
Vekselberg was targeted last month, when the US *finally* imposed more #sanctions on #Russia🇷🇺for helping throw the election to Trump. And 2 months ago, Mueller stopped him and questioned him & searched his electronics.😎

Meaning: Mueller has RECEIPTS‼️😀 2/

Vekselberg attended Trump's inauguration. Mueller's interest in him suggests that Mueller is FOLLOWING THE MONEY & is focused on potential connections btwn #Russian🇷🇺oligarchs and the Trump campaign & inaugural committee.🤨

ANY financial connection would be ILLEGAL‼️ 3/
Vekselberg's widespread GLOBAL corporate interests, plus his attendance at the inauguration are "potential avenues for examination."🙄


And "coincidentally," Vekselberg (not pictured) also attended the RT dinner in #Russia🇷🇺attended by Misha Flynn.🤨 4/
("I meant to provide last month's @cnn report about Mueller taking the "unusual step" of questioning #Russian🇷🇺oligarchs who traveled to the US, and "stopped at least one & searched his electronic devices when his private jet landed in NY." 😎 5/

🔥Mueller "potentially" is interested in Vekselberg’s business in #Cyprus. Vekselberg controlled a company that has been the largest single shareholder (OWNER) in the Bank of Cyprus. Around the same time WILBUR ROSS was its vice chairman‼️🐷 6/
Vekselberg’s inauguration ticket to the inauguration came from his cousin and business associate, Andrew Intrater, an American who donated $250,000 to Trump’s inauguration.🤨 7/
Intrater is chief executive of Columbus Nova, the US investment arm of Renova, owned by VEKSELBERG.

Intrater had no significant history of political contributions prior to the 2016 elections, yet in Jan'17 he gave $250,000 to Trump's Inaugural Cmte.🙄 8/…
Note that @cnn's original report said that Mueller is probing whether wealthy #Russians🇷🇺 funneled illegal foreign donations **directly or INDIRECTLY** into Trump's campaign & inauguration.🤔 9/

Vekselberg OWNS Rusal, whose US subsidiary is headed by an American (Intrater), who "coincidentally" became a six-figure (HUGE) political donor **for the 1st time** for Trump⁉️🙄 10/


Team🇺🇸Mueller has questioned Intrater, "according to a person briefed on the matter," though there is "no indication" that he is suspected of wrongdoing.🤔

Take what you will from this. It all depends on this single source. 11/
A person close w/Intrater said he was "encouraged to attend the inauguration by an American"...and "wanted to use the trip as an opportunity to meet w/business associates."

Of course he'd want to attend after donating $250,000.🙄

Vekselberg is "believed to have a favorable relationship" w/Putin (duh!) & was hit in April w/#sanctions against 7 of Russia’s richest men & their companies, plus 17 top government officials👉🏼aimed at penalizing those enriching themselves from Putin’s government.🤔 13/
Vekselberg & his associates, made (in 2003) the largest private transaction in #Russian🇷🇺history by forming a joint oil-pumping venture w/British Petroleum (BP), called TNK-BP.🤨 14/
BP execs suspected their🇷🇺partners had close ties w/the FSB & other RIS groups. FSB classified oil field maps & closely tailed UK employees. During a business dispute w/the Russians, BP’s Moscow office was RAIDED by police armed w/ASSAULT RIFLES.🤨 15/

To give you an idea of how these guys do business, amid this whole BP mess, German Khan (a Vekselberg partner) turned up for a dinner w/a BP executive at a remote #Russian🇷🇺hunting lodge ARMED w/a chrome-plated pistol‼️ 16/
Remember that "coincidentally," German Khan's son-in-law is Alex van der Zwaan, the Dutch lawyer (mom is #Russian) who pleaded GUILTY for LYING to the FBI about his business dealings w/Manafort & Gates‼️🙄 17/

And of course, don't forget about WILBUR ROSS, who was the Vice-Chair of Bank of Cyprus (where Vekselberg was the BIGGEST shareholder) that is RENOWNED for #MoneyLaundering for #Russian🇷🇺oligarchs. 18/

🔥**WHILE IN TRUMP'S CABINET** Wilbur Ross was doing business w/Putin's son-in-law, Kirill Shamalov, via Ross' #Russian🇷🇺 (Navigator). Ross owns Navigator via chain of offshore shell co's‼️🐷🐖 19/


This new story likely means that Mueller now has ALL of Vekselberg's communications that were on his electronic devices, as of 2 months ago.😎

If so, MANY people on Team🇷🇺Traitor, including Wilbur Ross, should be VERY worried‼️🤗

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.🤔
