Reporting directly to Donald Trump's personal lawyer, two operators waged a brazen

Two Unofficial US Operatives Reporting To Trumpís Lawyer Privately Lobbied A Foreign Government In A Bid To Help The President Win In 2020

Two unofficial envoys reporting directly to Donald Trumpís personal lawyer have waged a remarkable back-channel campaign to discredit the presidentís rivals and undermine the special counselís inquiry into Russian meddling in US elections.

In a whirlwind of private meetings, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman ó who pumped hundreds of thousands of dollars into Republican campaigns and dined with the president ó gathered repeatedly with top officials in Ukraine and set up meetings for Trump's attorney, Rudy Giuliani, as they turned up information that could be weaponized in the 2020 presidential race.

The two men urged prosecutors to investigate allegations against the Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden. And they pushed for a probe into accusations that Ukrainian officials plotted to rig the 2016 election in Hillary Clintonís favor by leaking evidence against Paul Manafort, Trumpís campaign chair, in what became a cornerstone of the special counselís inquiry.

They also waged an aggressive campaign in the United States, staying at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC, and meeting with key members of Congress as they joined in a successful push that led to the removal of the ambassador to Ukraine, after she angered their allies in Kiev.

Meanwhile, the two men ó who both have troubled financial histories ó rose to prominence in Republican circles, meeting with party leaders while injecting hundreds of thousands of dollars into top Republican committees and dozens of candidatesí campaigns.

2. So who's gonna tell the MSM about the bogus claims P&F are generating with Putin's help??

The Buzzfeed piece is 9 pages long. Most MSM reporting is 6 paragraphs with headlines. The details need to be exposed so people can see just how involved and articulate the plan to subvert the election is. It will not fit under a headline and a few graphs so phone addicts won't read it and streaming news likely won't post the whole.

10. Ya mean Twitter addicts.

This "phone addict" reads pages and pages, even downloads.


But I get the gist of what you're saying: people don't read >.<
That why Mueller had better be forthcoming...damn, wish we could depend on his doing so.

8. We are living during the twilight zone, this is all nuts. I read the Buzzfeed article which I found

somewhat confusing. What is clear is just how corrupt Giuliani is along with republicans who are funded by Russian oligarchs through a sophisticated network of overseas businesses who were mysteriously created and funded mere months before the election. Republicans are so full of Russian money their eyes are turning green. Imagine the corruption we donít see. Iím still curious, did they ever discover who received the missing .05% Roseneft ďfinders feeĒ I believe was about $500 million?
