THREAD: Elliott Broidy flooded the @GOP Congress & WH w/political cash to **buy access & influence** that he & George Nader allegedly **sold ILLEGALLY** to the crown princes of #SaudiArabia & UAE‼️🤬1/

Broidy & Nader pitched themselves to the crown princes as being able to pass the princes' MESSAGING straight to Trump’s ears.🤨

With NO lobbyist or #FARA registration‼️2/

Of course, convicted FELONS Broidy & Nader expected a BIGLY payoff for their treachery👉🏼>$1 billion in shady “consulting” contracts from #SaudiArabia & UAE in return for pushing anti-#Qatar policies to Trump & @GOP leaders in Congress.🤬 3/

Broidy & Nader tried to push an anti-#Qatar bill through Congress while **HIDING the source of the funding** behind their influence campaign👉🏼ILLEGAL‼️

They lobbied (ILLEGALLY) to isolate #Qatar & pushed to move the US’s largest military base OUT of Qatar.🙄 4/

Broidy — convicted of a FELONY for **bribing** NY state pension officials — claims he was not required to register #FARA b/c his anti-#Qatar campaign was “not directed by a foreign client & came entirely at his own initiative.”🙄 5/

#SHOCKER: documents show Broidy’s ILLEGAL lobbying was tied w/his **own pursuit of LUCRATIVE contracts**👉🏼did specific political tasks for the Saudi/UAE crown princes — listed as his "clients " for the lobbying campaign in a spreadsheet from HIS company, Circinus LLC‼️🙄 6/

Summaries written by Broidy of 2 meetings w/Trump — **one of which has not been disclosed before** — report that he was passing messages to Trump from the Saudi & UAE princes and that he TOLD Trump he was seeking business w/them‼️

👆🏼Definition of #corruption.🤬 7/
Nader's ties w/the UAE prince “MBZ” & Erik Prince caught Mueller’s attention, specifically 2 meetings that BOTH Nader & MBZ attended:

👉🏼#Seychelles btwn Prince & #Russian🇷🇺banker Kirill Dmitriev to establish a backchannel btwn Putin & Trump.
👉🏼Trump Tower in New York

Sorry...need a brief break. Be back in 5 min.😎8/
So Broidy & Nader are war profiteers & proposed multiple plans to the Saudi/UAE princes for >$1 billion of work In the war-torn country of #Yemen (basically, a proxy war btwn Saudi Arabia & #Iran).🤬 9/
As part of their ILLEGAL lobbying, Broidy & Nader tried to get the US to sanction #Qatar & move our military OUT.🤔

Broidy: "Mnuchin is a close friend...I can help in educating (him) on the importance of the Treasury Dept putting Qatari individuals & org’s on #sanctions."🤬10/
Repeat: Broidy & Nader allegedly worked ILLEGALLY to lobby the US to make MAJOR foreign policy shifts, so that these grifters could get >$1 billion in contracts from #SaudiArabia & UAE‼️🤬11/

Broidy BRAGGED that he got the @GOP Chair of the House Foreign Affairs Comte to back an anti-#Qatar bill.🤨

#SHOCKER: Broidy used $600,000 in political donations to #Republicans to grease the skids.🤬 12/

Clearly, Broidy & Nader tried to HIDE their illegal acts👉🏼funneled $2.5 million of payments for Broidy’s lobbying from Nader’s UAE company to a Canadian firm (Xiemen), which is run by one of Broidy's friends👉🏼money then routed to Broidy’s account in LA.🙄13/

Broidy persuaded a think tank, Foundation for Defense of Democracies, to hold an anti-#Qatar conference + planned 200 articles from them & other think tanks. The foundation's CEO said Broidy told him the $ were NOT from a foreign govt & that he had no contracts in the Gulf.🙄14/
And gee, where was @realDonaldTrump’s first foreign trip? To one of our closest allies in Europe⁉️

Nope. To #SaudiArabia.🤨

And folks, the ORDER of these presidential visits DOES matter‼️🤬15/

Just 2 weeks after Broidy’s “non-lobbying” anti-#Qatar conference, UAE, Saudi Arabia & others launched an economic blockage against #Qatar.🤨

One day later, Trump tweeted support for the two countries' actions and embraced an anti-Qatar stance.🙄

What a “coincidence”‼️ 16/
In Oct’17, Broidy met w/Trump at the WH & passed along the Saudi/UAE messages urging Trump to stay out of the dispute w/#Qatar. He also said he told Trump of Circinus' (Broidy’s firm) pending contract to build a Muslim fighting force.🤨

This sounds like #Corruption‼️17/
Despite the fact that Nader is a convicted PEDOPHILE, Broidy somehow managed a photo op w/Trump (usually, the Secret Service blocks people w/certain criminal backgrounds from getting close to POTUS).🤨

You know how.

MONEY‼️ 18/


Even though “Secretary of Everything” Kush is leading Middle East “peace” talks, looks like the Saudi & UAE princes see right through Jared‼️

“Nobody would even waste cup of coffee on him (Kush) if it wasn't for who he is married to (Ivanka).”🤣 19/


Days after Broidy's meeting w/Trump, the UAE awarded Broidy a contract for up to $600 million w/other lucrative contracts still pending‼️ 20/

Are you starting to get the sense that Broidy is in serious hot water⁉️

Well, yeah.

And George Nader (his partner in #FARA crime) and Rick Gates (Trump campaign’s liaison to #RNC) are SQUEALING‼️😎 21/

And don’t forget that Broidy supposedly used Cohen to make a hush-money deal to silence a Playboy playmate who has an abortion.🤨

Let’s see if Broidy was really the one having the affair, or of Broidy paid the $$ for TRUMP‼️22/

Both Nader & Broidy are convicted FELONS. Nader already let’s keep a close eye on Broidy, who raised >$100,000,000 for Trump & @GOP campaign coffers.🤬

#Mueller will FOLLOW THE MONEY...straight to the #Kremlin, Saudi Arabia, UAE, #Qatar & elsewhere.😎

🔥@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.🤔
