The USG official leaked Cohen’s financial records b/c the official became “alarmed” after being unable to find 2 suspicious-activity reports on Cohen in a government database & worried the info was being withheld from law enforcement‼️ 1/

Two previous suspicious-activity reports (SARS) documented **even larger flows of questionable money** into Cohen’s account👉🏼>$3 million‼️ Which individuals or corporations remains a mystery.🤨 2/

The 2 SARS were *absent* from #FinCEN’s database: “I have never seen something pulled off the system. That system is a safeguard for the bank. It’s a stockpile of info. When something’s not there that should be, I immediately became concerned. That’s why I came forward.”😳 3/
Sorry for the delay! I had to board my flight. Will continue until take off, then pick up once WiFi kicks on.😎 4/
SEVEN fmr govt officials & other experts expressed concern about the missing SARS. Some speculated that FinCEN may have restricted access to the SARS due to the sensitivity of their content, which would be nearly unprecedented. One called the possibility “explosive.” 😳 5/
That some, but not all, of the SARS had been removed or restricted troubled the official who released the SARS. “Why just those 2 missing? That’s what alarms me the most,” said the official, who feared that the contents of those 2 SARS might be permanently withheld.🤬 6/
🔥“This is a PERMANENT record. They should be there,” said the official, who described an exhaustive search for the reports. “And there is NOTHING there.”😳 7/

Cohen funneled nearly $1,000,000 of the money into his personal accounts at Morgan Stanley, who filed a SAR 👉🏼marked his transactions as possible signs of “#bribery or gratuity” and “suspicious use of third-party transactors (straw-man)”‼️8/

🔥Columbus Nova’s $500,000 was flagged as suspicious “b/c the CEO’s company transferred substantial funds to the personal attorney of Trump at the same time the CEO reportedly donated substantial funds to Trump’s inauguration & joint fundraising cmte for reelection & the #RNC.”9/
Be right back, once WiFi is activated‼️❤️ 10/
Yay, I'm now back online, so back to Cohen.🤓 11/
**Multiple** banks filed SARS on Cohen's shady banking activities. Some pieced together reasons for his transactions from news reports, citing articles (e.g., WSJ, Vanity Fair) about Trump, #Russia & secret election-season payments, including to @StormyDaniels.😎 12/

City National Bank's SARS follows cash paid to Cohen by Elliott Broidy (fmr #RNC deputy finance chair )👉🏼“Broidy also owns a private security company, Circinus, which provides services to the US & other govt's. The company has hundreds of millions of $$ in contracts w/UAE." 13/
As we all know, Broidy supposedly agreed to pay $1.6 million to a former Playboy model he impregnated, who then had an abortion. Broidy paid *both lawyers* for arranging the deal.🤨

This woman's lawyer was Keith Davidson, who also is Stormy's former lawyer.🙄 14/
City National's SARS👉🏼Broidy funnelled payments through Real Estate Attorneys’ Group, a legal co. Broidy paid Davidson $200,000 & sent 3 payments ($62,500 each) to Cohen—one to Essential Consultants' account & 2 to the account of Michael D. Cohen and Associates.🤔 15/
Records show that Brody paid Cohen $187,500. Did Broidy pay the remaining $1,412,500⁉️

Was this woman **really** impregnated by Broidy, or by someone else, who used Cohen & Davidson to negotiate his prior hush-money agreements (cough...Trump)⁉️ 16/

Broidy claims this description of payments is “not correct” & says he didn't pay Davidson. But City National's SARS shows a wire of $200k was received by Real Estate Attorneys Group from Broidy on 11/30/17. On 12/5/17, $200k was transferred to Davidson' account.🙄17/

Sorry...should have used the singular "SAR" for **one** suspicious-activity report, versus "SARS" for more than one SAR.😬

The MD, PhD in me sees "SARS" and thinks of the deadly viral infection.🤓 18/
Disclosing a SAR is a federal offense w/penalties including fines of up to $250,000 & imprisonment for up to 5 years. The official who released the SARS was aware of the risks, but said fears that the missing reports might be suppressed compelled the disclosure. 19/
The official said: "We’ve accepted this as normal & this is not normal. Things that stand out as abnormal, like documents being removed from a system, are of grave concern to me.”😳

🔥The official: “To say that I am terrified right now would be an understatement.” But, referring to the released SAR & the potential contents of missing SARS: “This is a terrifying time to be an American, to be in this situation, and to watch all of this unfold.”😳 21/
If these SARS truly are missing from #FinCEN's system, which is supposedly **permanent**, we,deserve an explanation as to why‼️

The good news is that the bank records still exist, so DOJ should have ALL of the dirt on Cohen's *shady* banking activities.😎


PS: it is **possible** that the SARS on Cohen's shady banking were sealed or removed from #FinCEN's system for national security reasons, or due to the "sensitivity" of the situation (b/c he's Trump's lawyer).🤔

Either way, we Americans **deserve** an explanation‼️

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.🤔
