    Why not go after both?

    From what I've read so far, I'm starting to think the list of who hasn't colluded with the Russians or Ukrainians is shorter.
    Isn't history funny? Seems phil is now a 'Trumphumper' only a few months later.

    Trial Manafort started

    Yesterday, 31 July, the “first” trial of special cover-up artist Robert Mueller has started.

    Paul Manafort, Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, earned more than $60 million from 2006 to 2015 as a political consultant for former President Viktor Yanukovych’s Party of Regions and its Opposition Bloc successor in the Ukraine.
    Mueller has accused Manafort (in the first trial) of:
    1) Laundering $30 million through a web of offshore accounts into the US to evade taxes, especially through foreign accounts located in Cyprus;
    2) Defraud several US banks to get more than $20 million in loans.

    It is expected that the government’s star witness will be Rick Gates, who worked with Manafort for Ukraine and on the Trump campaign (even after Manafort resigned as campaign manager). Gates was charged alongside Manafort but he made a deal with Mueller.
    The only other “big name” on the witness list is Tad Devine, who’s probably best known for advising on Bernie Sanders’s presidential campaign. Before that Devine had worked with Manafort for the Ukraine.

    Mueller had indicted Manafort in September 2017 for his lobbying for the Ukraine (this will be the “second” trial). The charges include not registering as a foreign agent in his Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA) statements.

    The first (Virginia) trial is expected to last about 3 weeks and will be followed by the second (of another 3 weeks).
    Manafort has pleaded not guilty.

    None of the charges brought against Manafort have anything to do with Russia interfering in the US presidential election (all of the charges date from before he worked on Trump’s campaign): https://www.vox.com/2018/7/31/175908...r-trump-russia

    Mueller has cut the charges up in 2 trials to confuse the public. It would be “easier” to judge Manafort if all the charges would be evaluated in one trial…

    Of course "Q" is great at cryptic writings, but not in finding "evidence" (Miles Mathis is even worse)...

    Here’s the 30 pages indictment of February (the first trial, fraud and tax evasion): https://www.courtlistener.com/recap/...106.14.0_4.pdf

    Here’s the 31 pages indictment of October 2017 (the second trial, including not registering as a foreign agent): https://www.courtlistener.com/recap/...90597.13.0.pdf

    I don’t think I exaggerate that I found more interesting information in a single day searching the internet. Some of the interesting information Robert Mueller “forgot”:
    - The Russian Alfa Bank that was communicating with the Trump Organization and the Spectrum Health of DeVos family during the election: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthr...=1#post6620071

    - The British SCL Group and its Cambridge Analytica subsidiary and its connections to major Trump funder, Robert Mercer: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthr...=1#post6634728

    - Wilbur Ross, who controlled the Bank of Cyprus, which was used to funnel money to Manafort.
    - Oleg Deripaska, for a time Manafort’s most important client, who’s close to Vladimir Putin and even closer to Ivanka’s one-time boyfriend Nat Rothschild.
    - That from 2012 to 2014 Mercury (of Manafort and Gates) and the Podesta Group were jointly working for the Ukraine.

    Bronfman’s and Oliver North’s Saudi partner in crime, Adnan Khashoggi, has been involved in a bunch of scandals. There are stories about: Iran-Contra, money laundering for Ferdinand Marcos and 9/11.

    Paul Manafort has also been in business with Marcos:
    Quote Originally Posted by Firestarter

    There is an even closer connection between Manafort and Khashoggi through his representative in Spain - Abdul Rahman Al Assir from Lebanon. Al Assir was once brother-in-law of Adnan Khashoggi. He arranged big weapons sales to African armies.
    The London-based Sourakia once wrote:
    The miracle of Al Assir is that he will have lunch with Don Juan Carlos [king of Spain], dinner with Hassan II [king of Morocco], and breakfast the next day with Felipe González [prime minister of Spain].
    In the late 1980s, Manafort became friends with Al Assir. In 1989, Manafort took Al Assir as his guest to George H.W. Bush’s inauguration.
    In the ’90s, Manafort and Al Assir were putting together big deals. Including an arms sale from France to Pakistan, that involved bribes and kickbacks to high-level officials in both countries. Manafort and Al Assir were not only business partners but even “very brotherly”. Manafort became the godfather of Al Assir’s child. They went on a holiday together near Cannes.

    In 2003, Manafort’s partner Rick Davis was invited to a meeting in Manhattan with Nathaniel “Nat” Philip Victor James Rothschild, heir apparent to the Rothschild trillions: https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine...ustler/550925/

    Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort has been found guilty on 8 fraud charges: 5 counts of tax fraud, 2 of bank fraud and 1 of failure to report a foreign bank account. He could be sentenced to decades in prison. The jury could not reach a consensus on 10 of the total of 18 charges.
    Former Manafort protégé Rick Gates testified that Manafort asked him to falsify banking and tax records and that he knowingly submitted those records.
    Manafort could yet avoid prison, if Judge Ellis determined that the evidence against Manafort is insufficient, despite the jury verdict. Manafort could also be pardoned by President Trump.

    The Virginia trial had nothing to do with the Trump campaign or Manafort’s contacts with Russia.
    In September in Washington DC Manafort will go to trial on charges of conspiracy to launder tens of millions of dollars, failing to register as a foreign agent and lying.
    Manafort’s conviction brought the tally of former Trump advisers who have pleaded or found guilty of crimes in the Mueller cover-up to 4. A California man and a London-based lawyer have also pleaded guilty.

    Trump responded:
    This has nothing to do with Russian collusion. These are witch hunts and it’s a disgrace ... It had nothing to do with Russian collusion, we continue the witch hunt.
    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...-federal-court


    I think that the Guardian “forgot” Michael Flynn (I think he's not from California...) and this also doesn’t include Michael Cohen...


    On Tuesday, former long-time Trump attorney Michael Cohen suddenly pleaded guilty to 8 counts — Cohen pleaded guilty to 5 counts of tax evasion; 1 count of making false statements to a financial institution; 1 of wilfully causing an unlawful corporation contribution; and 1 count of making an excessive campaign contribution at the request of a candidate.
    The “excessive campaign contribution” involves paying $280,000 to silence 2 women, Stephanie Clifford (Stormy Daniels) and Playboy bunny Karen McDougal, at the request of Donald Trump.

    Cohen was part of Mr Trump's inner circle for more than a decade; he was his personal lawyer at the Trump Organisation and continued to advise President Donald after the election.
    Cohen's sentencing is scheduled for 12 December; he is expected to be sentenced to between 46 and 63 months in prison.
    Federal prosecutors claim that Cohen also concealed more than $4 million from the IRS (that he can keep?): https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/201...fraud-charges/

    Sam Patten, Cambridge Analytica, Kilimnik

    A couple of days ago, another associate of Paul Manafort, Sam Patten, has pleaded guilty to failing to register as a foreign agent for lobbying on behalf of a Ukrainian political party. It’s not quite clear if “forgetting” to register as a foreign agent is actually considered a “crime”...

    Patten worked with Manafort and Gates (when they were working with the Podesta Group?) on Ukrainian campaigns.
    Patten also suggested that the Trump Inaugural Committee improperly accepted funds from a Ukrainian oligarch. Patten admitted that he illegally helped the Ukrainian buy a ticket to Trump’s swearing-in through a straw-man donor.
    Patten has also worked for Cambridge Analytica (part of the British SCL Group) during the 2014 election cycle (I guess in the Ukraine).

    In 2015, Patten formed consulting firm Begemot Ventures International with Konstantin Kilimnik. Kilimnik has worked for Russian military intelligence GRU. Kilimnik also worked as a fixer for Manafort in Ukraine.
    Kilimnik has been indicted in absentia alongside Manafort on obstruction of justice charges: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...fara-violation

    In March 2007, when Manafort was forming an alliance with Dmytro Firtash, he founded the private equity fund Pericles Emerging Market Partners in the Cayman Islands. Paul Manafort ran the firm with political consultant Rick Davis and lobbyist Rick Gates.

    Konstantin Kilimnik was also involved in Pericles, along with Ukraine political consultant Philip Griffin and Party of Regions flack Alexander Balanutsa: https://www.kyivpost.com/article/con...ss-418137.html

    I guess that by now public has lost interest in “special” cover-up artist Robert Mueller, who in 16 months of “investigating” couldn’t even discover the ties of Wilbur Ross to Russian oligarchs or the connection between Manafort and FBI asset Oleg Deripaska…

    So it was announced that, after spending 3 months in jail, as part of a plea deal Paul Manafort pleaded guilty to 2 criminal charges, conspiring to: 1) defraud the US and 2) obstruct justice.
    Manafort signed a 17-page plea agreement including that he will assist prosecutors with “any and all” matters, inform them on “his participation in and knowledge of all criminal activities” and testify in other cases.
    Manafort also agreed to forfeit homes in Virginia and New York (including an apartment in Trump Tower) and the funds from several bank accounts.

    The earlier conviction of Manafort on 8 counts in Virginia and the other case will be dropped by Mueller.
    Mueller’s team indicated that Manafort could get a maximum of 10 years in prison.

    Trump’s lawyer, former New York Mayor, Rudy Giuliani, wrote on Thursday that the president’s team remained in “open communication” with Manafort as part of an agreement to share information: “There’s no fear that Paul Manafort would cooperate against the president because there’s nothing to cooperate about and we long ago evaluated him as an honorable man”: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthr...th-Prosecutors

    Are there any American “suspects” left that didn’t sign a plea deal?
    Will they sentence all arrested Russians to prison instead?

    Serial liar Robert Mueller has found a new way to give his “investigation” the attention it doesn’t deserve by taking the deal with pathological liar Paul Manafort off the table, because he has lied to the FBI “on a variety of subject matters".
    Is it surprising that pathological liar Manafort lied? Does Mueller keep these lies unspecified, so he can later come with a new press statement bringing our hopes up that he will finally have something interesting to reveal?

    Manafort's (lying) lawyers claim that he provided “truthful information”.
    Both sides now agree that there is no reason to delay sentencing (do we get the verdict in the first case, in which Manafort was already found guilty, or do we get the second trial first?): https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-46353111


    I regularly see stories with similar “keywords” as the posts I make (which buries them in the internet “search” results). I don’t think that any of the Trump, Infowars an FOX fans will see how ridiculous this story really is.
    Dan Bongino wrote a preposterous book that he was allowed to advertise at the David Horowitz Freedom Center last month and that “they” are all against Donald Trump. He says something like that we should all read the book because he actually has reference and we should read the footnotes (or something like that)...

    It's written right here in the Wall Street Journal, on April 17, 2007. Who's the author of this critical Wall Street Journal piece? Glen Simpson and Mary Jacobi, his wife. Glen Simpson, the purveyor of Fusion GPS. The article is called, How Lobbyists Help Ex-Soviets Woo Washington. Folks, I dare you to take a moment and read that piece, put it next to the dossier. It's the same thing. It's the same thing. It's the same story. It was written 11 years ago. Glen Simpson clearly had this information about Russian influence in Washington he wrote 10 years ago. Read the names in the article. Do you know who appears in this article? Paul Manafort, all of these players. So what likely happened after Plan A collapses is, they say listen, let's go to the FISA Court and do this legally, but we need evidence. We don't have evidence. Don't worry, Hillary Clinton's got a guy at Fusion GPS, says he's got a story to tell.
    (…)
    The names never stop coming up again. Ever. Oleg Deripaska connected to Vladimir Putin who's connected to Adam Waldman, a lobbyist who's emailing and texting Mark Warner, a democrat on the senate committee. Who's Waldman working for too? Christopher Steele, the guy working for Hillary. They're connected to the Russians. The people that show up at the Trump Tower meeting. Veselnitskaya with Don, Jr. and Rinat Akhmetshin. Veselnitskaya works for Fusion GPS on a separate case and Akhmetshin, the other guy, the Russian intel guy that shows up at the Trump Tower meeting, you know who his lawyer is? Edward Lieberman. You know who Lieberman's wife is? Evelyn Lieberman. Bill Clinton's old chief of staff. Read the book folks; it's all laid out for you. So, thanks for your time. I appreciate it. Thank you very much.
    https://www.realclearpolitics.com/vi...n_history.html

    If I understand Bongino, he calls the following Wall Street Journal article from April 2017, of the WSJ of Jared Kushner’s and Jacob Rothschild’s good friend Rupert Murdoch, a movie script that they (Robert Mueller) are imitating in “Russiagate”, but changed some names...
    The story’s main Russian is Nat Rothschild’s good friend Oleg Deripaska, with a nice supporting role for Dimytro Firtash: http://archive.is/bsiiE

    All of the following names - Oleg Deripaska, Adam Waldman, Mark Warner, Mueller – from the transcript of Bongino’s silly talk are in the following post: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthr...=1#post6647254

    After Paul Manafort, 69, was found guilty in August 2018 on 8 counts of tax and bank fraud, he made a deal. Then Robert Mueller announced that the deal was withdrawn because Manafort “lied”.
    Judge Amy Berman Jackson has now explained why she agreed that Manafort had breached the plea deal. Jackson said Manafort had lied repeatedly about his interactions with Kilimnik.
    Manafort has been in jail since June 2018, when he and Konstantin Kilimnik were charged with witness tampering.

    The second planned trial has still not been finished...
    As part of the plea deal Manafort admitted crimes. This will be used to sentence him in the second trial next month in Washington.

    Mueller’s team demanded that Manafort will be locked up in prison for 235 to 292 months (19 1/2 to 24 1/2 years), for “serious, longstanding, and bold” financial crimes.
    Mueller’s prosecutors also demanded that Manafort will be fined more than $50 million.
    Manafort had “hidden” more than $16 million in income from US authorities, by which he avoided $6 million in taxes. He also hid tens of millions of dollars in foreign bank accounts and secured a $25 million loan by fraud.

    The court filing says Manafort was the ringleader of a financial criminal operation that also involved his accountants, Kilimnik and Rick Gates (Manafort’s long-time deputy that pleaded guilty and continued to work on the Trump campaign): https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...r-trump-russia

    Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen and his one-time campaign manager Paul Manafort have been sentenced to prison.

    In March, Manafort was sentenced to serve 47 months in prison of which he is expected to serve only 38 more months because he has already been incarcerated for some time.
    Judge Ellis ordered Manafort to also pay a $50,000 fine and $24 million in restitution, for amongst others hiding $55 million in offshore bank accounts in Cyprus to avoid $6 million in taxes.

    Mueller’s prosecutors demanded that Manafort would be fined more than $50 million and locked up in prison for 19 1/2 to 24 1/2 years, for “serious, longstanding, and bold” financial crimes.
    Some have complained about the relatively lenient punishment for a big criminal like Manafort, like for example some small criminal getting offered 36-72 months in prison for stealing $100 worth of quarters: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-47491688


    In the second case, Paul Manafort got another 3 ½ years, which means that his total prison sentence is 7 ½ years.

    Manafort has also been prosecuted in a third “state” case, in which he’s charged with mortgage fraud, falsifying business records and conspiracy: https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...g-donald-trump


    I’m even more surprised that in the latest trickery to divert attention away from President Trump’s many scandals,
    His long-time unofficial adviser Roger Stone has been arrested (with a camera crew waiting to film the event).
    Even Julian Assange has been sentenced to 10 months in jail in Britian for jumping bail (would that be long if Assange has really been locked up for years in the Ecuador Embassy like it’s claimed?)...

    Ukraine, Pinchuk, Akhmetov, London, Trump, Sanders

    There really is no end to the corruption scandals connected to the Ukraine...

    Another link between Clinton, Donald Trump, Paul Manafort and John Bolton, brought to us by the Trump supporting media…
    John Bolton pocketed $115,000 from the Victor Pinchuk Foundation of the Ukrainian steel oligarch Pinchuk for a pair of speeches in September 2017 and February 2018, shortly before becoming President Donald Trump’s national security adviser.

    Bolton sat on a panel and basically expressed that President Donald isn’t any different than his predecessors, stating:
    The notion that [Trump’s presidency] is going to represent a dramatic break in foreign policy is just wrong. Calm down, for God’s sake.
    https://nationalfile.com/john-bolton...ndation-donor/


    Victor Pinchuk is the founder of EastOne Group LLC (based in London) and of Interpipe Group (located in the Ukraine). Pinchuk owns 4 TV channels and the tabloid Fakty i Kommentarii. Pinchuk was a Ukrainian MP from 1998 to 2006 and is married to the daughter of former Ukrainian President Leonid Kuchma, Olena Pinchuk.
    The Victor Pinchuk Foundation finances and works with amongst others the Clinton Global Initiative, the Kyiv School of Economics, Tony Blair Faith Foundation, the Brookings Institution, the Peterson Institute for International Economics and the Aspen Institute.

    Between 1994 and 2005, Pinchuk donated $10 to $25 million to the Clinton Foundation.
    In 2000, Pinchuk hired former Clinton pollster Douglas Schoen on a $40,000 per month retainer.

    In 2015, Pinchuk donated $150,000 to the Donald J. Trump Foundation (the largest outside donation to the Trump Foundation that year) for a 20-minute video appearance by Donald Trump shown at the Yalta European Strategy conference. This was paid on the request of Trump lawyer, Chabad-Lubavitcher Michael Cohen.
    In March 2017, former Trump aid Monica Crowley registered as a foreign agent for Pinchuk: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victor_Pinchuk


    In the early 2000s, Paul Manafort began to work for Ukrainian billionaire Rinat Akhmetov, business partner of Pinchuk.

    In January 2019, Paul Manafort's lawyers accidentally submitted a document to Robert Mueller’s team that showed that as Donald Trump's campaign chairman, Manafort met with Konstantin Kilimnik, gave him polling data on Trump's Presidential campaign (including non-public data) and discussed a Ukraine-Russia peace plan related to the ongoing Russia invasion of Ukraine with Kilimnik. Manafort asked Kilimnik to pass the data to Ukrainian MP Serhiy Lyovochkin and Akhmetov.
    Konstantin Kilimnik is a known GRU agent (the follow up of the KGB).

    In the spring of 2016, deputy Trump campaign manager Rick Gates (who continued to work on Trump’s campaign after Manafort was forced to resign) was also involved in providing data to Kilimnik.

    Kilimnik is also an associate of none other than Russian oligarch Oleg V. Deripaska (Nat Rothschild’s buddy): http://archive.is/jsOB6


    Since 2014, London is the favourite financial centre for Ukrainian multimillionaires (billionaires)…

    Rinat Akhmetov has an expensive flat at One Hyde Park in London. Akhmetov controls nearly half of Ukraine’s coal, steel and thermoelectricity sectors, and has influence over up to 40 of the Ukraine’s MPs. In December 2013, he lent his private jet to then Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych.
    Akhmetov’s main holdings company System Capital Management has offices in Park Lane London and steel producer Metinvest, in which Akhmetov is the majority shareholder, has a plant in Newcastle.

    Pinchuk calls none other than former British PM Tony Blair his friend.
    Pinchuk also funds Blair's Faith Foundation.

    Firtash owns a house near Harrods and calls the UK his second home.
    His wife Lada is founder of the couple’s UK Firtash Foundation: https://www.theguardian.com/world/sh...ch-side-are-on

    Was I wrong to expect that Joe Biden would be selected as the Democrat candidate to get Donald Trump re-elected president?
    Latest polls show that Bernie Sanders has taken the lead in several states (over Biden).

    Since 2010, Manafort worked with Tad Devine on the election of Victor Yanukovich as President of the Ukraine.


    In 2004, Devine was senior advisor and strategist on Bonesman John Kerry’s campaign to get Bush Jr. re-elected as US president.
    Devine had earlier worked on Al Gore’s campaign.

    In 2016, Bernie Sanders hired Tad Devine as his campaign chief strategist.
    It is not expected that Tad Devine will also work on Bernie’s current presidential campaign: https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2018...-files-mueller
    (http://archive.is/LikQc)


    Bernie Sanders is another friend of the Zionist Chabad-Lubavitch cult, like Vladimir Putin and president Donald, whose daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner are Chabad-Lubavitchers…

    In 1983, as mayor of Burlington, Vt., Bernie Sanders publicly inaugurated the Chabad-Lubavitch Public Menorah at Burlington’s City Hall.

    The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) complained that a menorah in a public space violated federal laws of the separation of church and state.
    A memo from City Attorney John McNeil to Mayor Bernie Sanders laid out their reason for keeping the Chabad-Lubavitch Menorah in City Hall Park.

    In 1988, Reverend Paul Bortz condemned Sanders for supporting the menorah.


    In 1983, Mayor Sanders also designated Chabad rebbe Schneerson’s birthday as a Day of Education in Burlington Vermont.
    In 1985, Sanders celebrated his re-election by going to Chabad’s Purim party: https://www.chabad.org/library/artic...daism-blog.htm

    In 2003-2004, Viktor Pinchuk brought US luminaries to Ukraine to improve Kuchma’s image, like Henry Kissinger, Zbigniew Brzezinski and President George Bush Sr. Pinchuk also hired Black, Kelly, Scruggs & Healey (BKSH) Associates and the Washington World Group for public relations.

    In 2010, when Zev Furst and Firtash met US Ambassador to Ukraine William Taylor, Firtash told that he was only permitted to run his highly profitable gas business, because Russian mafia boss Semyon Mogilevich allowed him to.

    After the 2004 Orange Revolution, Rinat Akhmetov hired Davis-Manafort International from 2005 to 2014.
    Davis-Manafort International “forgot” to register their work for Akhmetov in FARA.

    Vin Weber (partner at Mercury, Clark & Weinstock) registered as a lobbyist for the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine (ECFMU) that was funded by President Yanukovych. Vin Weber was also chairman for CIA front the Endowment for Democracy (NED).
    And in the 2012 election campaign, Vin Weber was Mitt Romney’s leading foreign-policy adviser: https://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-bl...ith-pro-russia
    (http://archive.is/Vp7qV)


    Firtash’s legal team tried to fight extradition to the USA, with the testimony of Viktor Shokin, the former Ukrainian prosecutor general. Shokin complained that he was fired in 2015 for political reasons, because he was investigating Burisma, where Joe Biden’s son Hunter was a board member.
    Shokin also wrote that (then Vice President) Joe Biden had warned the Ukrainian government to keep Firtash out of Ukraine, to stop him from influencing the country’s politics.

    In February 2017, an Austrian court had Dmitry Firtash extradited to the USA.
    Firtash was at first represented by the same lawyer that had been hired to defend Trump’s long-time lawyer Michael Cohen.

    In July 2019, Dmitry Firtash hired a new legal team; led by attorneys Victoria Toensing and Joseph diGenova, who frequently defend president Donald in the media. The two have also worked closely with Trump’s lawyer, Rudolph W. Giuliani (former New York Mayor).
    Firtash hired Toensing and diGenova on the recommendation of their Russian translator, none other than Lev Parnas: https://www.latimes.com/politics/sto...ts-extradition

    I’ve previously posted on the Kazakh gangster Tevfik Arif and his ties to Trump, Erdogan, Kazakhstan and Putin. One of Arif’s companies (that were heavily involved in money laundering) was Rixos with links to Viktor Pinchuk’s business partner Rinat Akhmetov...

    No!!! Our internet couldn’t be rigged, or could it?

    A mystery client has paid bloggers in India and Indonesia to write articles to bury some damaging story on President Donald’s suspicious ties to Tevfik Arif and Doyen...
    Spokespeople for online companies in the 2 countries confirmed that they had been paid to write articles to hide articles on Trump’s ties to Arif.

    The campaign is designed to manipulate internet search results so that some damaging story on Trump’s relationship to Arif, Bayrock Group and the Doyen Group is buried in the search results.
    Over 50 articles were posted on obscure platforms, used explicitly to hide this story, from September 2017 to June 2018.

    Indonesian writer Ongky Firmansyah wrote that he was been paid to randomly insert the names “Tevfik Arif” and “Tevfik Arif Doyen” into articles on his website.
    A host of dummy social media accounts were created, with names like Tevfik Arif, Tevfik Arif Doyen and TevfikArif Bayrock: http://archive.is/6K1zG


    I haven’t seen many stories with better information on Tevfik Arif, Bayrock and Doyen than the following thread: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthr...-Erdogan/page2


    In the fall of 2016, Donald Trump Jr. and other aides to his father met Joel Zamel, founder of the Israeli company Wikistrat, and George Nader, emissary for the UAE, in Trump Tower.

    Wikistrat was led by 3 Israelis: Daniel Green, Elad Schaffer and its founder and former CEO Zamel.
    Wikistrat’s advisory council includes former CIA and NSA director Michael Hayden, former national security adviser James L. Jones, former deputy director of the National Security Council Elliott Abram, and former acting director of the Defense Intelligence Agency David Shedd.

    Zamel was introduced to Michael Flynn by Bijan Kian and wanted to hire Flynn for Wikistrat’s advisory board: https://www.thedailybeast.com/inside...uellers-sights

    The previously mentioned Lebanese-American George Nader has been indicted for importing child pornography and trafficking a minor for sex. In 1991, Nader had pleaded guilty to federal child pornography charges.

    Nader, with Ahmad “Andy” Khawaja, has also been charged with laundering more than $3.5 million in foreign campaign donations from March 2016 to January 2017, including the 2016 presidential campaign.

    And once again a Trump-Clinton link, Nader reportedly donated (part or all of?) this money to Clinton’s campaign.
    In August 2016, Khawaja co-hosted a 2016 fundraiser for Clinton, with attendees like Haim Saban, Magic Johnson and Jeffrey Katzenberg.

    Nader was a liaison between Trump‘s team and Mohammed bin Zayed, crown prince of Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
    In August 2016, Nader and Joel Zamel met with Donald Trump Jr. to offer help to Trump‘s campaign with Blackwater founder Erik Prince.

    Lauder, Kazakh trio, Alfa, Broidy

    I finally found another one of those rare stories, with a huge amount of information, excellent dot connecting, on the (Soviet, Jewish) crooks surrounding Donald Trump...
    Some of it sounds like a good reason to impeach President Donald to me!

    Viktor Topolov, one of the richest men in Ukraine, was associated with Leonid Roytman who worked for Russian mob boss Semion Mogilevich. Topolov and Alexi Oronov partnered to build an ill-fated factory in Ukraine. So in 2006, they hooked up with none other than Trump’s long-time lawyer Michael Cohen and his brother Bryan Cohen (who just happened to Oronov’s son-in-law), to pitch the factory deal to Morgan Stanley.
    Oronov set up the meeting between Michael Cohen, Trump associate Felix Sater and Ukrainian MP Andrii Artemenko, to draw up a Ukrainian peace plan that Michael Cohen allegedly brought to Michael Flynn’s desk.

    In 1987, Donald Trump explained that he first became attracted to Russia at a luncheon in NYC in 1986 hosted by Leonard Lauder (Ronald’s older brother), where Donald was sitting next to Soviet Ambassador Yuri Dubinin.
    Donald’s friend Ronald Lauder is the overall head of the World Jewish Congress. In this role, Lauder met Vladimir Putin in April 2016.
    Alfa Group chairman Mikhail Fridman is the founder and head of the Russian Jewish Congress.
    Alexander Mashkevich is the leader of the Eurasian Jewish Congress and Jack Rosen is the president of the American Jewish Congress.

    In 2009, Beny Steinmetz invested $10 million in the Elliott Broidy controlled Israeli Markstone Capital.
    One fascinating offshore money trail connects Steinmetz, Alfred Gusenbauer and Tal Silberstein to Paul Manafort.
    Steinmetz is also associated with the SCL Group linked Israeli Black Cube.
    Steinmetz is also in business with the ENRC of the Kazakh Trio — Alexander Mashkevich, Patokh Chodiev and Alijan Ibragimov. ENRC was investigated by the UK’s Serious Fraud Office (SFO), for paying $40 million in bribes to Dan Gertler. In 2013, ENRC was taken renamed Eurasian Resources Group (ERG).
    In one of those strange coincidences, Mashkevich was in Davos, Switzerland at the same time as Kirill Dmitriev (close to Putin, who was in the Seychelles for the infamous meeting with Erik Prince) and Anthony Scaramucci (once Donald’s White House communications officer).

    Alexander Mashkevich and Patokh Chodiev were hired as managers of Seabeco Belgium and Seabeco Moscow respectively, by Alex Shnaider’s father-in-law Boris Birshtein.
    In 2008, Boris Birshtein reportedly collaborated with the FBI (and Oleg Deripaska), when Robert Mueller was its director, in funnelling millions to Iran, in the Robert Levinson case.
    Kazakh trio associate Musa Bazhaev is the President of the Alliance Group conglomerate and chairman of the offshore Russian Platinum PLC. Putin arranged for Bazhaev to get started in the lucrative platinum business.

    On 1 June 2017, ERG signed and MOU with Russian state bank VTB at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.
    After the Savarona Yacht prostitution scandal, with Donald’s business associate Tevfik Arif, Mashkevich was replaced on the Gesamines Board of Directors by Jack Rosen. In 2012, Rosen formed a $1 billion American Real Estate Investment partnership with Russian oligarch Mikhail Fridman, chairman of the Russian Alfa Group.
    In another one of those strange coincidences, Ron Lauder met Fridman and his Alfa partner German Khan in London in November 2014. Lauder is close to Alfa Bank’s Petr Aven, and partnered with him in art expositions in New York.

    See Vladimir Putin and Pyotr Aven, February 2014.


    Elliott Broidy, Directors of the Republican Jewish Coalition, was introduced to UAE Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed (MBZ) by convicted paedophile George Nader. In the 1980s, Lebanese born Nader previously worked for Ronald Lauder in Mid-East peace deals.
    Broidy reportedly arranged multi-million contracts with the United Arab Emirates (UAE) through Nader, despite “forgetting” to register as a Foreign Agent.
    Broidy was reportedly the one that called for dismissing Rex Tillerson and sanctions on Qatar.

    One of the groups Broidy worked with was the non-profit Secure America Now (SAN), promoted as the largest national security digital platform in the USA. The president of SAN is Allen Roth, chief political adviser of Ronald Lauder. The Board of Directors of SAN included Mike Huckabee and Donald’s dismissed National Security Adviser John Bolton.
    Ronald Lauder donated $1.1 million to SAN, while its biggest donor with $2 million, was Robert Mercer (also the biggest funder of Cambridge Analytica). SAN used targeted advertising on Facebook and Google, in the 2016 presidential elections, making gullible fools afraid of a Muslim takeover of the US.

    In 1994, Ron Lauder founded Central Media Enterprise (CME) in 1994 that by 1997 owned TV stations in Slovenia, Romania, Slovakia, and Ukraine.
    Later Lauder partnered with Donald’s business partner Lev Leviev to invest in Israeli media companies Channel 10 & Israel Plus 10.

    David Bonderman with another well-known financier Rich Gerson started the Redwood Bank in the UK. Bonderman was also a director of the Russian Development Investment Fund (RDIF), headed by none other than Kirill Dmitriev.
    In another strange twist Blackstone CEO Skull & Bones’ Stephen Schwarzman and Leon Black of Apollo Management have also served on the RDIF Board.
    Rich’s brother Mark Gerson, was an early investor in Cadre, the multi-million dollar start-up founded by Jared Kushner and his brother Josh Kushner: http://web.archive.org/web/20190914070501/https://medium.com/@sheil51/connecting-elliott-broidy-related-dots-offshore-and-on-some-russian-some-not-cabf61f28f

    Lauder–Alfa Bank; Kushner-Abramovich

    In 2006, Ron Lauder’s Lauder Institute partnered with the Russian Alfa Bank to award Deutsche bank for their successful business in Russia: http://web.archive.org/web/20170621214311/https://alfabank.com/media/news/2006/06/20/


    In November 2014, Alfa’s German Khan and Mikhail Fridman visited London and spent Shabbat with Lauder and other representatives of the British Jewish community: https://www.thejc.com/news/uk-news/r...london-1.61095


    Ron Lauder and Len Blavatnik were also Committee members of the USC Shoah’s campaign “Auschwitz: The Past is Present”, with Kushner-Trump-Clinton affiliated: Yuri Milner, Haim Saban, Steven Spielberg, Barry Diller (and his wife Diane Von Furstenberg), David Geffen, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Eric Schmidt, Harvey Weinstein, Rob Wiesenthal and Jeff Zucker: https://sfi.usc.edu/pressroom/releas...mittee-members
    (http://archive.is/9db7T)


    Lauder has also worked on Jewish causes alongside national director of the Anti-Defamation League Jonathan Greenblatt and Roman Abramovich’s Chelsea: http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/241425


    In early 2014, Ivanka and Jared Kushner attended a charity event with Roman Abramovich that also included Alexey Reznikovich (head of Alfa’s LetterOne Technology) and other Russian oligarchs, including Viktor Vekselberg, Len Blavatnik and Ekaterina Vinokurova (daughter of Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov) with her husband Alexander Vinokurov (who is a director of Alfa Group).

    Kushner and Abramovich are close friends. In 2010, Thrive Capital, the venture firm founded by Joshua Kushner (Jared’s younger brother), that was funded by Jared, invested in Artsy. Investors in Artsy included Wendi Deng (Rupert Murdoch’s ex-wife) and Dasha Zhukova (Roman Abramovich’s wife): https://thesternfacts.com/jared-kush...h-d31dfecc0a2d

    Nader, Erik Prince, Broidy, FDD, Otaiba, UAE

    The Board of Directors of the Ron Lauder, Elliott Broidy affiliated Secure America Now (SAN) that worked on the 2016 Trump campaign, included John Bolton and Mike Huckabee.
    Dick Morris, who has worked for Bill Clinton, advised Huckabee on his campaigns in 1993, 1994, and 1998. Mike Huckabee’s daughter, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, was President Donald's White House Press Secretary for 2 years.
    In January 2018, Huckabee praised Doha, Qatar as "surprisingly beautiful, modern, and hospitable". Mike Huckabee forgot to mention that Qatar had paid him $50,000 as an "honorarium".


    Nader was an adviser to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al-Nahyan of Abu Dhabi (MBZ, of the UAE) for years.
    See the gay paedophile George Nader pictured with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.


    George Nader has also worked as a business agent in Iraq for the private military contractor Blackwater, owned by Erik Prince (the brother of Donald’s Education Secretary Betsy DeVos).
    Since Erik Prince arranged the meeting between Joel Zamel, Nader and Trump’s team on 3 August 2016, George Nader frequently met Jared Kushner, Mike Flynn and Steve Bannon.
    Nader and Prince were also discussing a plan to get $2 billion from the Saudis for a private army to fight against Yemen.

    After Trump was elected president, Nader paid Zamel a large sum of money, $2 million.
    After Donald’s inauguration, Zamel and Nader met Kushner and Bannon at the White House, supposedly promoting a plan to sabotage Iran. Nader advocated this project to American, Emirati and Saudi officials, estimated at a cost of about $300 million.

    Zamel has also worked for the Emirati royal court as a consultant.
    In December 2016, Nader again hired an internet company linked to Zamel — WhiteKnight, based in the Philippines.

    According to insiders, Nader visited Moscow at least twice during the presidential campaign as an emissary from Crown Prince MBZ.
    Joel Zamel also has ties to Russia. One of his firms has worked for Russian oligarchs like Oleg V. Deripaska and Dmitry Rybolovlev: http://web.archive.org/web/20200203212730/https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/19/us/politics/trump-jr-saudi-uae-nader-prince-zamel.html


    The following AP story on Nader and Broidy is obviously an attempt to whitewash Tom Barrack (who raised more than $7 billion since Donald became the Republican nominee for president) and United Arab Emirates Ambassador Yousef al-Otaiba, but it certainly looks like a genuine “bombshell”...

    From 2006 to 2008, Elliott Broidy was finance chairman of the Republican National Committee.
    In 2009, Broidy pleaded guilty, of looting $18 million from a New York state pension fund, after bribing state officials with almost $1 million. In 2012, Broidy’s conviction was degraded to a misdemeanour after he agreed to cooperate with prosecutors and pay back the $18 million to the state.
    Broidy supposedly had an affair with Playboy Playmate Shera Bechard, who got pregnant and later had an abortion and paid her $1.6 million to keep quiet, arranged by Trump lawyer Michael Cohen.
    Then Broidy himself spoke about the affair! It has been rumoured that it was really Donald Trump that had an affair with Shera Bechard...

    Broidy and met for the first time at Trump’s inauguration and within weeks were working for the UAE and Saudi Arabia to orchestrate a campaign against Qatar, so they would be rewarded with millions of dollars in defence deals from the 2 wealthy gulf states.
    Broidy and Nader “forgot” to register even though those countries were listed as “clients” for the lobbying campaign of Broidy’s Circinus LLC.

    After Broidy claimed credit for pushing their agenda in the Trump White House, he collected the first $36 million for an intelligence contract with the UAE.

    On 7 February 2017, Broidy wrote to a staffer of the House Foreign Affairs Committee about a bill aimed at sanctioning Qatar.
    In a March 2017 document, Broidy and Nader proposed a budget of more than $12 million to “expose and penalize” Qatar and to get the US to “aid in coercive action against Iran”.

    Elliott Broidy has boasted of his influence over Trump’s Cabinet, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin (of Skull & Bones) in particular.
    Broidy wrote to Nader about pushing for pushing for sanctions against Qatar:
    Mnuchin is a close friend of mine (my wife and I are attending Sec. Mnuchin’s wedding in Washington D.C. on June 24th) and I can help in educating Sec. Mnuchin on the importance of the Treasury Department putting many Qatari individuals and organizations on the applicable sanctions lists.


    Broidy also bragged that he made the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Ed Royce, back an anti-Qatar bill and had “caused” Royce to praise Saudi general Ahmed Hassan Mohammad Assiri, which was memorialised in the Congressional Record.

    After Broidy donated $189,000 to the RNC on 30 November, George Nader was allowed to be photographed backstage with president Donald.


    Broidy wrote Nader that the Sheldon Adelson financed Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD), could stage an anti-Qatar conference and that 200 anti-Qatar articles could be published through the FDD and other “think tanks”.
    On 21 April 2017, Broidy sent Nader the draft of an Op-Ed; three days later, “The Two Faces of Qatar, a Dubious Mideast Ally” was published in Rupert Murdoch’s Wall Street Journal, co-written by retired Air Force Gen. Charles Wald, who called for moving US military assets from the al-Udeid Air Base in Qatar to the United Arab Emirates.
    Leaked emails show that Charles Wald was a member of Broidy’s Circinus team that was pitching contracts in Saudi Arabia.

    In June 2017, the UAE, Saudi Arabia and regional allies launched a travel and trade embargo against Qatar.
    One day after the beginning of the blockade, Trump sent a series of tweets in support of the blockade against Qatar by Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

    Saudi Arabia has since distanced itself from Nader and Broidy.
    Days after Broidy met president Donald, the UAE awarded Broidy an intelligence contract worth up to $600 million in 5 years: https://www.documentcloud.org/docume...Redacted2.html
    https://apnews.com/a3521859cf8d4c199...ortune-seekers
    (http://archive.is/K2Se1)


    On 26 May 2018, Elliott Broidy sued Ahmed Al-Rumaihi, accusing him of leaking his emails (that made the previous expose by AP possible) to damage his reputation over his wheeling and dealing with the UAE (and the Saudis) and the Trump White House.

    In another one of those strange coincidences, legendary gangsta rapper Ice Cube also sued Al-Rumaihi over not keeping up their deal on financing a pro-basketball league. Ice Cube’s business partner Jeff Kwatinetz, is also a friend of Steve Bannon: https://www.motherjones.com/politics...t-filing-says/
    (http://archive.is/Jzoxp)


    On 3 June 2017, emails from United Arab Emirates ( UAE) envoy Yousef al-Otaiba were released by GlobalLeaks. Otaiba has “almost constant phone and email contact” with President Trump's son-in-law and adviser, Jared Kushner. The two first met this June at the behest of Thomas Barrack, another billionaire and backer of Trump.
    In 2000, Otaiba became the director of international affairs for Mohammed bin Zayed Al-Nahyan (MBZ), the crown prince of Abu Dhabi.
    Otaiba also emailed with Robert Gates, former defence secretary for Barack Obama. Gates is also associated with Mohammed bin Zayed.

    Yousef al-Otaiba has repeatedly discussed the strategy towards Iran with the CEO of the FDD, Mark Dubowitz.
    Part of the leaked mails, is the agenda for an 11-14 June 2017 meeting between the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD) and UAE government officials. As attendees for the FDD are listed: Mark Dubowitz, John Hannah, and Jonathan Schanzer. UAE officials also requested the attendance of Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed. The agenda includes a discussion on Qatar, and in particular"Al Jazeera as an instrument of regional instability": https://assets.documentcloud.org/doc...66679/FDD2.pdf

    See the following excerpts from the document, the first image is a mail announcing a discussion on Qatar and the Muslim Brotherhood on 23 May 2017.


    The second and third are about the “assessment of Qatar’s troubling regional role” on 11-15 June 2017.


    The FDD is financed by none other than Sheldon Adelson: https://theintercept.com/2017/06/03/...-against-iran/


    See Mohammed bin Zayed (centre) with Republican senators Bob Corker, Mitch McConnell (husband of Trump’s Transport Secretary Elaine Chao), John McCain, and Democratic senators Ben Cardin and Jack Reed.


    Then on 14 June 2017, the president of the FDD, Clifford D. May, published the following...
    FDD Senior Fellow David Weinberg, had this to say about the leaked mails:
    The emails were cherry-picked and given to tendentious media outlets in an attempt to embarrass the ambassador and critics of Qatar.
    May claims that Qatar:
    extends its hospitality to the Taliban, provides refuge to Hamas leaders, takes a tolerant attitude toward al Qaeda financiers, enjoys cordial relations with the Islamic Republic of Iran, supports the Muslim Brotherhood and, via al Jazeera, its media outlet, spreads Islamist propaganda.
    (…)
    In April, according to sources cited by the Financial Times, Qatar paid as much as $1 billion to Iran and al Qaeda, ostensibly to secure the release of members of the royal family and their companions who were kidnapped while hunting in Iraq. In May, the Saudi press reported that Qatar’s foreign minister met with Qassem Soleimani, Iran’s top terrorist master.
    May refers to the 23 May conference, which was attended by 1) Robert Gates, who served as Secretary of Defense and Director of Central Intelligence; 2) Ed Royce, Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee; and 3) Jake Sullivan, former national security advisor to Vice President Joe Biden: http://www.defenddemocracy.org/media...tar-ultimatum/

    Last November, when the impeachment charade was still making headlines, President Donald explicitly denied sending his attorney Rudy Giuliani to "do anything" in Ukraine. Trump said, "No, I didn't direct him".

    Now that President Donald has been acquitted of the impeachment, on Thursday Trump openly admitted that he sent Giuliani to the Ukraine to find damaging information on his opponents, in an interview with Geraldo Rivera.
    Donald explained:
    So when you tell me, why did I use Rudy, and one of the things about Rudy, number one, he was the best prosecutor, you know, one of the best prosecutors, and the best mayor.
    Donald has fired several US officials who testified against him in the impeachment charade, and he demanded that the Department of Justice won’t ask for 9 years in prison for his long-time adviser Roger Stone for lying to Congress: https://edition.cnn.com/2020/02/13/p...iew/index.html

    In January 2018, Huckabee praised Doha, Qatar as "surprisingly beautiful, modern, and hospitable". Mike Huckabee forgot to mention that Qatar had paid him $50,000 as an "honorarium".


    Nader was an adviser to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al-Nahyan of Abu Dhabi (MBZ, of the UAE) for years.
    See the gay paedophile George Nader pictured with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.


    George Nader has also worked as a business agent in Iraq for the private military contractor Blackwater, owned by Erik Prince (the brother of Donald’s Education Secretary Betsy DeVos).
    Since Erik Prince arranged the meeting between Joel Zamel, Nader and Trump’s team on 3 August 2016, George Nader frequently met Jared Kushner, Mike Flynn and Steve Bannon.
    Nader and Prince were also discussing a plan to get $2 billion from the Saudis for a private army to fight against Yemen.

    After Trump was elected president, Nader paid Zamel a large sum of money, $2 million.
    After Donald’s inauguration, Zamel and Nader met Kushner and Bannon at the White House, supposedly promoting a plan to sabotage Iran. Nader advocated this project to American, Emirati and Saudi officials, estimated at a cost of about $300 million.

    Zamel has also worked for the Emirati royal court as a consultant.
    In December 2016, Nader again hired an internet company linked to Zamel — WhiteKnight, based in the Philippines.

    According to insiders, Nader visited Moscow at least twice during the presidential campaign as an emissary from Crown Prince MBZ.
    Joel Zamel also has ties to Russia. One of his firms has worked for Russian oligarchs like Oleg V. Deripaska and Dmitry Rybolovlev: http://web.archive.org/web/20200203212730/https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/19/us/politics/trump-jr-saudi-uae-nader-prince-zamel.html


    The following AP story on Nader and Broidy is obviously an attempt to whitewash Tom Barrack (who raised more than $7 billion since Donald became the Republican nominee for president) and United Arab Emirates Ambassador Yousef al-Otaiba, but it certainly looks like a genuine “bombshell”...

    From 2006 to 2008, Elliott Broidy was finance chairman of the Republican National Committee.
    In 2009, Broidy pleaded guilty, of looting $18 million from a New York state pension fund, after bribing state officials with almost $1 million. In 2012, Broidy’s conviction was degraded to a misdemeanour after he agreed to cooperate with prosecutors and pay back the $18 million to the state.
    Broidy supposedly had an affair with Playboy Playmate Shera Bechard, who got pregnant and later had an abortion and paid her $1.6 million to keep quiet, arranged by Trump lawyer Michael Cohen.
    Then Broidy himself spoke about the affair! It has been rumoured that it was really Donald Trump that had an affair with Shera Bechard...

    Broidy and met for the first time at Trump’s inauguration and within weeks were working for the UAE and Saudi Arabia to orchestrate a campaign against Qatar, so they would be rewarded with millions of dollars in defence deals from the 2 wealthy gulf states.
    Broidy and Nader “forgot” to register even though those countries were listed as “clients” for the lobbying campaign of Broidy’s Circinus LLC.

    After Broidy claimed credit for pushing their agenda in the Trump White House, he collected the first $36 million for an intelligence contract with the UAE.

    On 7 February 2017, Broidy wrote to a staffer of the House Foreign Affairs Committee about a bill aimed at sanctioning Qatar.
    In a March 2017 document, Broidy and Nader proposed a budget of more than $12 million to “expose and penalize” Qatar and to get the US to “aid in coercive action against Iran”.

    Elliott Broidy has boasted of his influence over Trump’s Cabinet, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin (of Skull & Bones) in particular.
    Broidy wrote to Nader about pushing for pushing for sanctions against Qatar:



    Broidy also bragged that he made the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Ed Royce, back an anti-Qatar bill and had “caused” Royce to praise Saudi general Ahmed Hassan Mohammad Assiri, which was memorialised in the Congressional Record.

    After Broidy donated $189,000 to the RNC on 30 November, George Nader was allowed to be photographed backstage with president Donald.


    Broidy wrote Nader that the Sheldon Adelson financed Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD), could stage an anti-Qatar conference and that 200 anti-Qatar articles could be published through the FDD and other “think tanks”.
    On 21 April 2017, Broidy sent Nader the draft of an Op-Ed; three days later, “The Two Faces of Qatar, a Dubious Mideast Ally” was published in Rupert Murdoch’s Wall Street Journal, co-written by retired Air Force Gen. Charles Wald, who called for moving US military assets from the al-Udeid Air Base in Qatar to the United Arab Emirates.
    Leaked emails show that Charles Wald was a member of Broidy’s Circinus team that was pitching contracts in Saudi Arabia.

    In June 2017, the UAE, Saudi Arabia and regional allies launched a travel and trade embargo against Qatar.
    One day after the beginning of the blockade, Trump sent a series of tweets in support of the blockade against Qatar by Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

    Saudi Arabia has since distanced itself from Nader and Broidy.
    Days after Broidy met president Donald, the UAE awarded Broidy an intelligence contract worth up to $600 million in 5 years: https://www.documentcloud.org/docume...Redacted2.html

    On 26 May 2018, Elliott Broidy sued Ahmed Al-Rumaihi, accusing him of leaking his emails (that made the previous expose by AP possible) to damage his reputation over his wheeling and dealing with the UAE (and the Saudis) and the Trump White House.

    In another one of those strange coincidences, legendary gangsta rapper Ice Cube also sued Al-Rumaihi over not keeping up their deal on financing a pro-basketball league. Ice Cube’s business partner Jeff Kwatinetz, is also a friend of Steve Bannon: https://www.motherjones.com/politics...t-filing-says/

    On 3 June 2017, emails from United Arab Emirates ( UAE) envoy Yousef al-Otaiba were released by GlobalLeaks. Otaiba has “almost constant phone and email contact” with President Trump's son-in-law and adviser, Jared Kushner. The two first met this June at the behest of Thomas Barrack, another billionaire and backer of Trump.
    In 2000, Otaiba became the director of international affairs for Mohammed bin Zayed Al-Nahyan (MBZ), the crown prince of Abu Dhabi.
    Otaiba also emailed with Robert Gates, former defence secretary for Barack Obama. Gates is also associated with Mohammed bin Zayed.

    Yousef al-Otaiba has repeatedly discussed the strategy towards Iran with the CEO of the FDD, Mark Dubowitz.
    Part of the leaked mails, is the agenda for an 11-14 June 2017 meeting between the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD) and UAE government officials. As attendees for the FDD are listed: Mark Dubowitz, John Hannah, and Jonathan Schanzer. UAE officials also requested the attendance of Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed. The agenda includes a discussion on Qatar, and in particular"Al Jazeera as an instrument of regional instability": https://assets.documentcloud.org/doc...66679/FDD2.pdf

    See the following excerpts from the document, the first image is a mail announcing a discussion on Qatar and the Muslim Brotherhood on 23 May 2017.


    The second and third are about the “assessment of Qatar’s troubling regional role” on 11-15 June 2017.


    The FDD is financed by none other than Sheldon Adelson: https://theintercept.com/2017/06/03/...-against-iran/


    See Mohammed bin Zayed (centre) with Republican senators Bob Corker, Mitch McConnell (husband of Trump’s Transport Secretary Elaine Chao), John McCain, and Democratic senators Ben Cardin and Jack Reed.


    Then on 14 June 2017, the president of the FDD, Clifford D. May, published the following...
    FDD Senior Fellow David Weinberg, had this to say about the leaked mails:


    May claims that Qatar:


    May refers to the 23 May conference, which was attended by 1) Robert Gates, who served as Secretary of Defense and Director of Central Intelligence; 2) Ed Royce, Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee; and 3) Jake Sullivan, former national security advisor to Vice President Joe Biden: http://www.defenddemocracy.org/media...tar-ultimatum/
    This is all fake news.

    When Georgia wasn’t doing too well economically, Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev came to the rescue. In 2005, Georgia’s president Mikhail Saakashvili and Nazarbayev announced that BTA Bank was providing 300 hundred million dollars in loans to develop Georgia.
    In a strange twist, all the loans went to subsidiaries of the Silk Road Group. BTA’s deputy chairman, Yerkin Tatishev, selected one of his employees at the Kusto Group, Talgat Turumbayev, to represent both BTA and him on the boards of 2 of those subsidiaries. Some legal experts conclude that if Tatishev was financially involved in businesses funded by the BTA Bank loans, then he and the Silk Road Group have committed bank fraud (self-dealing).
    Not surprisingly one of Silk Road’s subsidiaries receiving loans, Batumi Riviera Holding, B.V., was registered in the Netherlands.

    In 2009, when Nazarbayev was planning to take control of BTA Bank, its chairman, Mukhtar Ablyazov, fled to London (where else?). Ablyazov took billions of dollars in bank funds out of BTA, by giving dozens of offshore companies under his control loans from B.T.A., which weren’t paid back.
    Starting in 2009, Mukhtar Ablyazov was sued in the UK by the Kazakh government to reclaim ten billion dollars that he had siphoned out of the country. The UK courts ordered him to repay more than four billion dollars to BTA (so that he could keep almost six billion dollars). According to Judge Nigel John Martin Teare, Ablyazov had committed “fraud on an epic scale”.

    In 2010, Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen began negotiating with the Silk Road Group about a Trump Tower in Batumi, Georgia.
    When Donald came to Georgia for a speech, he pointed to Tatishev and Ramishvili and said: “We have two great partners. And they’re going to do a fantastic job”: https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2...-of-corruption
    (http://web.archive.org/web/20200904050950/https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2017/08/21/trumps-business-of-corruption)


    After I (first) posted the previous story on 16 September, suddenly on 20 September, the ICIJ found it convenient to report on some (already known) money laundering cases. For some reason Mukthar Ablyazov is mentioned, but they “forgot” to detail the case...


    It is a report on Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) reported by banks to the U.S. Department of Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCen), between 1999 and 2017. The suspicious transactions total more than $2.7 trillion.
    They show banks transferring cash for clients that have already been publicly exposed as financial frauds and for shell companies controlled by people they can’t identify. Some banks take hundreds of days (on average) to report “suspicious” transactions to the authorities.

    The SARs in the FinCEN Files were mostly filed by: Deutsche Bank (982), Bank of New York Mellon (325), Standard Chartered Bank (232), JP Morgan Chase (107), Barclays (104) and HSBC Bank (73). Together they filed more than 85% of all SARs in the leak.
    Deutsche Bank reported more than half of the $2 trillion of suspicious transactions.


    The most interesting bank in this story is, NOT Deutsche Bank but, JPMorgan Chase (the largest bank in the United States).
    JPMorgan was involved in money laundering for the previously mentioned Mukthar Ablyazov - former chairman of Kazakhstan’s BTA Bank (previously named Bank TuranAlem).

    JPMorgan also helped Paul Manafort transfer more than $50 million in over a decade. How much of that was funnelled through to Podesta?!?
    JPMorgan even made $6.9 million in transactions for Manafort in the 14 months after he resigned from the Trump campaign in a swirl of money-laundering and corruption allegations.
    NoviRex secretly paid $4,190,111 to Manafort’s lobbying operation on behalf of Yanukovych’s Party of the Regions (for which Podesta was subcontracted).

    JPMorgan laundered money for people massively looting in Malaysia, Venezuela and Ukraine (where else?).
    JPMorgan also moved more than $1 billion for the fugitive financier behind Malaysia's 1MDB scandal.
    JPMorgan transferred more than $2 million for a company that has allegedly cheated Venezuela's Government.

    Banks are legally prohibited from discussing filed SARs (but we really don’t need to know all that is going on or we might lose sleep), so JPMorgan declined to comment.
    Likewise the Treasury Department and its subsidiary FinCEN refused to answer questions: https://www.icij.org/investigations/...nd-terrorists/

    I found the following story more interesting than the previous that didn’t really disclose anything “new” (I couldn’t find this by searching the internet for a link to Bayrock, Arif or Sater, to Mukthar Ablyazov).

    More than $30 million of the looted billions from Mukhtar Ablyazov was invested in the US with the help of none other than Tevfik Arif’s and Trump’s gopher, Chabad-Lubavitcher Felix Sater.

    Eesh Aggarwal had worked for Ablyazov’s son-in-law, Ilyas Khrapunov, to use a network of a dozen or more offshore companies to launder hundreds of millions of dollars through accounts in the Tanzania-based bank FBME.
    Ilyas Khrapunov — under the codename “Elvis” — was the ultimate beneficiary of the offshore network that handled close to $440 million through accounts at the FBME bank.

    Bayrock's and Sater's links to the Khrapunovs date back to 2007, when Trump SoHo was under development. They set up a Dutch joint venture with Arif’s Bayrock called KazBay. Bayrock and the Khrapunovs also partnered on a project in Switzerland in 2008.
    Sater was also directly involved with 2 members of Ilyas Khrapunov's family.
    From 2012 to 2014, Ilyas Khrapunov and Elvira were helped by Sater and another ex-Trump Organization employee, Daniel Ridloff, to transfer millions of dollars to the US. Part of this cash was used to buy 3 Trump SoHo apartments: https://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/nat...213846794.html
