The @nytimes reported today that Donald Trump may have illegally financed his 2016 campaign with a secret loan that potentially exceeded legal limits. The report is the latest in a Times series examining Trump's tax returns. Thread below. (1/8)

Snip

Khawaja couldn’t believe his luck: ‘For me it was like, “Fuckin’ hallelujah! Jackpot!”’ It turned out that the sheikh was involved in running Abu Dhabi’s intelligence services. But the half billion never arrived, none of it, and the mall project died. Instead, Nader said he wanted to buy Khawaja’s ‘payment engine’, the technology for taking credit card payments over the internet. Khawaja agreed.

Khawaja says that in September 2016, Nader told him why he needed the payment engine. Abu Dhabi wanted help making ‘online micropayments’ in bulk to the Trump campaign and the RNC. He describes Nader asking for help to make it work: ‘How can we generate electronic payouts to the online donation websites? I would like you to show us how we would be able to do that.’

Khawaja wasn’t taking notes or recording these conversations. These are his recollections of what Nader said, and we have only his word. He remembers Nader explaining why they wanted to fund the Trump campaign. According to Khawaja, Nader said: ‘I’ve been meeting with the Trump campaign people…we have a deal with Trump: my boss, His Highness, made a deal that if we help Trump get elected, he’s going to be harsh on Iran, he’s going to take out the nuclear deal that the Obama administration made. That will cripple the Iranian economy and will sanction Iran from selling oil again. It will make it very difficult for them to compete in the oil market. That’s worth a hundred billion dollars to us. That’s the reason we cannot allow Hillary to win at any cost. She must lose.’

Khawaja says he asked: ‘But you really think he’s going to win? I mean, this is crazy.’ And he says that Nader replied: ‘His Highness is not stupid, he will never bet on a losing horse.’ The money would come from the Saudis. The Emiratis would run the operation, using data bought from the Chinese. Khawaja says that Nader told him: ‘We have all the data already, we have 10 million US consumers’ data. And we have endless money.’ The Russians were ‘on board’ too: ‘He said, “Yes, I have met with Putin already and we have a green light from him. Because Putin is on the same page with us. He wants Hillary to lose.”’

4. If we can get some hard evidence on this

You'll probably find much of that money was going to rePug senators & congress-critters.

Should make for some interesting trials & sentences.

17. But campaign donations are public record. I wonder whose names they were making these donations

in, if this is true. And, if it is true, then we should be able to see the names of the unwitting donors.

I sure as hell had better not be one of those names they bought from the chinese.

10. Seth Abramson - Proof of Conspiracy

The president’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, used an encrypted messaging app to conspire, throughout 2017 and 2018, with the Saudi crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, in a way that altered permanently the geopolitics of the Middle East (see chapter 7); while these clandestine discussions were not in themselves illegal, they appear to have been coupled with the Trump campaign’s acceptance of donations from Saudi and other foreign nationals during the 2016 campaign (see chapters 3, 5, and 7). Just so, while the Red Sea Conspiracy hatched in 2015 was not, at its birth, an illegal act—foreign nationals are entitled to passively root for one U.S. political candidate over another, and to form geopolitical alliances based on shared policy agendas—it became so when it blossomed into a course of covert pre-election assistance that included, per reporting, collusive behavior in both the lay and legal senses. And to the extent that this collusion continues today in the form of President Trump’s historically idiosyncratic foreign policy in the Middle East—one that places the interests of the Saudis, Emiratis, Israelis, and even Russians ahead of those of Americans—it is criminal not because the president cannot form whatever foreign policy he wishes, but because he cannot form a foreign policy for which he has received compensation. Likewise, his agenda cannot induce continued crimes against America by foreign nationals or entities.

11. Ch 5

Several questions remain open: whether Manafort was given millions in loans either to buy his silence or to buy his influence with the Trump team, whether he was being paid to engage in clandestine sanctions negotiations with Kremlin agents in a way that induced the Kremlin to continue committing crimes against the United States pre-election, and whether, as the New York Times reports, “people from Middle Eastern nations—including Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates—used straw donors to disguise their donations” to Trump’s inaugural fund, Rebuilding America Now, or, for that matter, Manafort’s personal bank account.

12. I read entire article, here are 2 paragraphs I felt were relevant......

Enter George Nader. His name might be familiar because he was a witness in the Mueller inquiry. In January 2017, Nader set up a meeting in the Seychelles that he apparently hoped would establish a back channel between the Trump administration and the Kremlin. He’s now awaiting sentence in the US.

There remains the question of Trump’s phenomenal fundraising among small donors. Barack Obama reinvented online fundraising and in 2012 small donations provided 28 percent of his campaign budget. In 2016, only 22 percent of Hillary Clinton’s campaign money came from small donors. In the same year, 69 percent of all the money the Trump campaign raised came from individuals giving less than $200 each. And — a slightly different measure — in one quarter last year, 99 percent of Trump’s contributors were small donors.

13. Wonder if Nader is in prison on drummed up charges to keep him quiet?

Will he live to see Biden President?

14. Hey KS, Nader's old partner Elliot Broidy was *finally* charged yesterday - bet he knows some STUFF

(Bloomberg)--Elliott Broidy, a former top political fundraiser for President Donald Trump and the Republican Party, has been charged as part of a wide-ranging federal probe into back-channel efforts to influence the U.S. government on behalf of foreign interests via @TheTerminal





On edit: Broidy’s business partner was none other than *George Nader*:

Broidy and his business partner, Lebanese-American George Nader, pitched themselves to the crown princes as a backchannel to the White House, passing the princes' praise — and messaging — straight to the president's ears.

There was word of this happening about 6 weeks ago, I was afraid they’d forgotten all about him!!!

GREAT NEWS!!

19. If this case doesn't give us standing to go back to the Supreme Court to overturn Citizens United,

then nothing will.

This shit has to stop.
