“SerhiyGorbatyuk, Ukraine’s special prosecutor high-level corruption cases, pointed to MilltownCorpServices Ltd., which played a central role in the state’s purchase of two oil derricks for $785 million, or about double what they were said to be worth”… Cc @ninaandtito do you have anything on MilltownCorpServices? This is Manafort-Yanukovych linked company

How Trump got Giuliani to help his scheme but McCain & Coumo said nope 👎

“it became clear as the agency reviewed Trump’s application that he was “trying to shift millions in federal funds meant for affordable housing into his own profits.”… “Trump never got over Cuomo blocking the scheme, even threatening a run for Governor against Cuomo in 2014,” Glaser said. “It was all personal payback...He titled this chapter of his book, “Sometimes You Have to Hold a Grudge.”

“the government began reading my e-mails and text messages and monitoring my phone calls as early as 2016.

I believe that I, like Carter Page and Paul Manafort, was subject to an illegal FISA warrant in 2016”
@LouiseMensch @LouiseBagshawe… “A whistleblower has told my lawyers where my name and the fact that application had been made for a FISA warrant on me was redacted from the stunning Carter Page FISA warrant application released by the FBI last week”

Funny how that blocked phone number calling Collins in 2016 can be compared to blocked number TrumpJr called re: TrumpTower mtg. 🤔

@thespybrief… “The New York Republican is the main congressional liaison between the House and Mr. Trump’s transition team, which is charged with staffing political jobs in the executive branch”

How many backs got scratched here?…

Wow. Go down with this ship, eh?

“RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel circulated a memo to donors to distance themselves from the (Koch) billionaire mega donors”

@thespybrief @counterchekist… Irony...

McDaniel wrote in a memo to high-profile donors. "Second, some groups who claim to support conservatives forgo their commitment when they decide their business interests are more important than those of the country or Party. This is unacceptable."

“Where did he go wrong,”

“mom thinks the power went to his head”

“with Ukraine”

“Right…that it has turned him into a moral-less ethic-less person”

“he is just power crazed…controling. obsessive.”

“He has no moral or legal compass”… “It is a matter of record that Manafort went into business with Trump’s adviser Roger Stone in 1980. Stone, Trump, and Trump’s lawyer Roy Cohn were then fixtures on the bacchanalian Manhattan party scene.”

Important move:

"Mueller referred a collection of cases to NY federal prosecutors concerning whether several high-profile American lobbyists and operatives failed to register their work as foreign agents"… "Mueller has referred matters to SDNY involving longtime Democratic lobbyist Tony Podesta and his work for his former firm, the Podesta Group, and former Minnesota Republican Rep. Vin Weber and his work for Mercury Public Affairs"

think Doug needs some time in the barrel, peeps

"As recently as a year ago, the current leader, Doug Burleigh, was predicting alliance between [President Donald] Trump and [Russian President Vladimir] Putin. He predicted that that at a Russian prayer breakfast.” "If intl dignitaries view PrayerBreakfast as a reliable means of unofficial access, some Presidents—notably Clinton—have been more accommodating than others. “Bill and Hillary got it,” says DougBurleigh, Coe’s son-in-law & a key figure in the Fellowship."…

Yes, Maria Butina is the new Anna Chapman.
Butina studied cyber security at AmericanUniversity
Anna was also into computers:
Note that AnnaChapman had a large network that took years to build, then came tumbling down. Expect many more of Butina's co-conspirators to get rounded up

"In 2015, Butina met privately with a political candidate. She also discussed a plan for Torshin to buy a plane ticket for a US congressman to visit Moscow."

oh, Dana, where are you? @DanaRohrabacher… Well, GOP can't deny this since it just happened!
And now they must be cringing 🤣

"Later, following the 2016 presidential election, Butina and the Russian official discussed a possible pro-Russian converence that US members of Congress could attend, according to the documents"
