#EuropeanParliament is questioning #Zuckerberg about #Facebook. I hope they ask about the following events. ❓👇 Thread on #Russian #oligarchs investments. @WendySiegelman @dcpoll @grantstern @patrickLSimpson @TrickFreee @J_amesp
1. Zuckerberg and Milner are good friends. Zuckerberg attended Milner’s wedding in California late in 2011. They also advise each other on philanthropic ventures. theguardian.com/news/2017/nov/…
2. One of the major investors in Facebook is a Russian company run by two oligarchs close to Putin. In 2009, Digital Sky Technologies (DST Global) was set up by Yuri Milner and Alisher Usmanov.
3. Usmanov used Gazprom money for his Facebook and Twitter investments. Usmanov owns 32% in DST.
4. In May 2009, DST invested $200 million in Facebook.
In June 2009, DST bought back up to $100 million of Facebook employee shares.
In January 2011, DST invested $50 million.
5. In 2012, Gazprom Investholding financed an offshore company to finance Milner’s 8% stake in Facebook.
💥Let’s reinforce: DST received money from Gazprom Investholdings.nytimes.com/2017/11/05/wor…
6. Gazprom Investholdings’s director: Alisher Usmanov. Gazprom Investholdins is a financial subsidiary of Gazprom. Gazprom, Russia’s largest company and the world’s biggest public energy supplier, is owned by the Russian Government (50.23%)
7. Usmanov is the richest oligarch in Russia. His wife was a gymnastics trainer of Putin’s mistress (a gymnast.)
8. (These personal ties and soap opera worthy details are not meant to provide a cheap thrill. It is critical to understand the family-like connections between Putin and his “business” accomplices.)
9. Milner, DST co-owner with Usmanov, once advised the Russian government on technology through a presidential commission chaired by Dmitry Medvedev, the former president and current prime minister.
10. In 2015, Milner contributed $850,000 from his family trust to a $50m investment in Cadre, a tech-savvy real estate investment startup, a New-York-based company that Jared Kushner co-founded in 2014 with his brother, Joshua, and a friend of theirs from Harvard.
11. Kushner initially failed to disclose his own holding in Cadre when he joined Trump’s White House.
12. That and more details, questions and pictures here. medium.com/@ZarinaZabrisk…

Thread. Nazi--#Kavanaugh posters found yesterday on the campus of Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, NY and all around the Hudson Valley region. Designed by The Daily Stormer (a reference to “Der Stürmer,” the Nazi tabloid), a webzine formerly known as Total Fascism.
2. Daily Stormer was launched in 2013 by Andrew Anglin, who embraced a Nazi ideology on the Daily Stormer.
3. Dailystormer.com was getting more than 10 million page views until it was shut down by GoDaddy and Google after remarks about the activist murdered in Charlottesville. It then briefly reappeared on a Russian domain.

☦️☦️☦️💥💥💥💣BOMB: How the Kremlin uses a network of the agents of influence to stack courts with #KavanaughConfirmation and stop the investigation into the global organized crime, money-laundering and political machinations of Putin and Trump. #Kavanaugh #KavanaughHearings
The article shows how conservative religious groups and networks like the Federalist Society, the National Prayer and Chabad were infiltrated and/or manipulated by the Kremlin to support critical decisions like Kavanaugh's nomination. 👇 medium.com/@ZarinaZabrisk…
This thread+article show that, willingly or not, the Federalist Society, Fellowship Foundation, The National Breakfast Prayer, Russian Orthodox Church, and Chabad movement are being instrumental in lifting the economic sanctions against the Russian oligarchs & officials.

Thread re the FBI "investigation": Chris Wray was, like Kavanaugh, a Trump's nominee. He worked for a law company, representing Gazprom, Rosneft, Sberbank and Alfa Bank on issues related to sanctions. Moscow partner of King and Spalding is Wray’s partner & friend since childhood.
1.Wray had multiple connections that were covered in the process of his confirmation. medium.com/@ZarinaZabrisk…
2. Wray silently reshapes the FBI: In January, McCabe said he felt pressure to leave the FBI. In August, Peter Strzok, who helped lead the bureau's investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, was fired for texting anti-Trump messages.

An enraged man spitting out words "anger,""fear," "revenge," "nightmare," "evil" (3 times), "character assassinations," "what goes around goes around," "fear for the future," "i will not be intimidated," "circus," "Destroy" (3 times), ""vile" and "never" in response...
2. to a detailed, well-thought account of what happened delivered by Dr. Ford. Now he is talking about his mother and repeats "evil" and "die."
3. Dr. Ford was assaulted by some man, somewhere, at some time. Now he is brining in his ten-year old daughter and crying and wants to pray for Dr. Ford. Now he is going to speak about himself: his career.
