    Arrow The Official Russia Witch Hunt Thread

    too much breaking news hit all at once. pointless to make a new thread for every one. just gonna dump it all here.

    1) Veselnitskaya, Russian in Trump Tower Meeting, Is Charged in Case That Shows Kremlin Ties

    ^many people are saying this may compel her to cooperate with the sdny and by extension, all the feds including the special counsel.

    2) redaction errors by defense lawyers reveal- paulie manafort was feeding internal polling data to and discussing ukraine plans with russian intelligence officers.

    Things we learned today from Manafort's lawyers' redaction errors: Manafort is alleged to have met in Madrid w/Kilimnik; shared polling data with him; and discussed a Ukraine peace plan w/him more than once. Is that the same peace plan that Cohen delivered to Flynn in Jan 2017?
    3) a still unnamed foreign state owned entity that was trying to avoid a subpoena by muells took their case all the way to the supreme court. they got denied.

    NBC Politics
    ‏@NBCPolitics

    JUST IN: US Supreme Court rejects appeal from an unidentified company in a foreign country that was seeking to escape a grand jury subpoena that is widely assumed to be sought by Special Counsel Mueller's prosecutors.

    "The administrative stay previously entered ... is vacated."

    ^said company will either have to cooperate or pay hefty fines indefinitely.

    disclaimer: all of this was only about adoptions.

    yeah everyone at maga has been anticipating that for a few weeks/months now. a few of the most notorious twitter rage outs were because of this. only question is when it happens.

    the dems in the house sent mueller a bunch of unredacted transcripts from their hearings where they suspect people committed perjury. it's assumed junior, stone, and others are among them.

    Hmm..this sounds like a secret or illegal cooperation or conspiracy, especially in order to cheat or deceive others.. I think there's a word for it

    No mention that the reason she’s being charged is for a money laundering case regarding a FusionGPS client, huh?

    chewie mane- what reasons can you think of that would justify the campaign chairman of maga (who has already been *convicted* of laundering rushen oligarch money) giving internal polling data to rushen intelligence officers?

    throw some ideas at me.

    As long as Trumps dick is firmly in Chews mouth, he's happy to ignore everything.

    what's everybody's guess on who the mystery contestant company is?

    all we know is- 1) it's a foreign state owned entity 2) they have been subpoenaed for grand jury info/testimony

    could it be alfa bank? rosneft maybe?

    who r u picking?

    I frankly don't care. Two years in and Trump is still President and still no evidence that he won based on Russian influence or had any illegal dealings with Russia.

    The Saudis are also a real possibility.

    which company specifically though?

    and how could i forget vtb?

    they're probably the favorite tbh. and their story just crossed timelines with rosneft and the qataris.

    i do not envy the special counsel's office and their task of untangling this web.

    [QUOTE]President-elect Donald Trump registered eight companies during his presidential campaign that appear to be tied to hotel interests in Saudi Arabia, according to a report in The Washington Post.

    Trump registered the companies in August 2015, shortly after launching his presidential bid, according to The Post.

    The companies were registered under names such as THC Jeddah Hotel and DT Jeddah Technical Services, according to financial disclosure filings.

    The names of the companies registered appeared similar in pattern to how Trump named other companies connected to hotel deals registered in foreign cities, according to the Post. Trump names companies after cities in the state in which he is dealing with. Jiddah, also spelled Jeddah, is the second-largest city in Saudi Arabia, located on the Red Sea coast about 60 miles west of Mecca.

    The Post reported that by the time of Trump's May financial filing, four of those companies in which Trump was the president or director were still active. Trump has in the past said he wants to protect the oil-rich Arab kingdom.

    During a rally on August 21, the day Trump created four of those companies, he said he gets along well with Saudi Arabia.

    "They buy apartments from me," Trump said during the Alabama rally. "They spend $40 million, $50 million. Am I supposed to dislike them? I like them very much.

    [QUOTE]The money-laundering case was not directly related to the Trump Tower meeting. But a federal indictment returned in Manhattan seemed to confirm that Ms. Veselnitskaya had deep ties to senior Russian government officials and rekindled questions about whether the Kremlin tried to use her as an intermediary to Donald J. Trump
