Open Thread | Breaking Down and Connecting Ukraine Dots

Found this Twitter thread that tries to connect the Ukraine dots and give you the scope of the cast of characters.
Look who all is tied up in this criminal conspiracy.😒😒😒

Andrew S. Weiss (@andrewsweiss) Tweeted:
THREAD: Have we reached the point where Rudy Giuliani’s role in Ukraine-gate no longer looks like a bad outtake from a Coen Brothers movie but rather is something that should be setting off alarm bells inside DOJ comparable to James Comey’s firing? 1/

Andrew S. Weiss (@andrewsweiss) Tweeted:
Bear with me as I lay out some facts. They exceed the unreality of a Gary @Shteyngart novel. Yet based on my reading of these facts, several questions readily jump out. I don’t have all of the answers to these questions but think it’s worth asking them. 2/ https://twitter.com/andrewsweiss/status/1183912838378774530?s=17

 

Andrew S. Weiss (@andrewsweiss) Tweeted:
@Shteyngart WSJ reported on Oct 10 that Lev Parnas, one of the Giuliani associates arrested by the Feds, had been hired by Firtash’s defense team as a translator.

Andrew S. Weiss (@andrewsweiss) Tweeted:
@Shteyngart @aviswanatha @rebeccaballhaus That’s a curiously menial role for Parnas who presented himself as a high roller and whose campaign contributions gave him access to Trump and other GOP leaders. (Lawyer John Dowd says they had a similar role for Giuliani on behalf of President Trump) https://t.co/3MYZlQcVc3 6/ https://twitter.com/andrewsweiss/status/1183914236822589440?s=17

    Onus of investigations on Congress, SDNY as Barr defers to Trump

    Rachel Maddow looks at how Bill Barr’s abdication of his responsibility to investigate criminal referrals related to Donald Trump has caused those investigations to be taken up by others, like in the impeachment inquiry in Congress, and the Southern District of New York.

    I remember Elijah Cummings as a delegate from the 39th District in the General Assembly, a junior member of the old Mitchell organization. He outlasted that machine and so many other ambitious politicians and he did it by being a good man and a committed civil servant. Sad day. https://twitter.com/AoDespair/status/1184837965350162433?s=17

    “Born a sharecropper’s son on Jan. 18, 1951, Cummings was told he was too slow to learn and spoke poorly, and he would never fulfill his dream of becoming a lawyer.

    Parker Looks Up: Michelle Obama’s Biggest (and Littlest) Fan Just Published Her First Book

    Maiysha Kai
    36 minutes ago

    She’s been a viral sensation (more than once), has had a dance party with the forever first lady, and has published her first book—all before the age of five. The adorable little art lover known as Parker Curry can now add “author” to her pre-K resume, as on Tuesday, she and her mom, parenting blogger Jessica Curry, released the picture book Parker Looks Up: An Extraordinary Moment.

    The extraordinary moment in question is, of course, when a then-two-year-old Parker first saw Amy Sherald’s portrait of Michelle Obama in the National Portrait Gallery (Sherald also wrote the foreword for the picture book). The toddler was transfixed by the image, believing she was gazing up at “a queen” (of course, she was).

    Now, other little ones aged 4- to 8-years-old can share in the wonder of that moment, too. Per a synopsis on Amazon:

    Parker Looks Up follows Parker, along with her baby sister and her mother, and her best friend Gia and Gia’s mother, as they walk the halls of a museum, seeing paintings of everyone and everything from George Washington Carver to Frida Kahlo, exotic flowers to graceful ballerinas. Then, Parker walks by Sherald’s portrait of Michelle Obama…and almost passes it. But she stops…and looks up!

    Parker saw the possibility and promise, the hopes and dreams of herself in this powerful painting of Michelle Obama. An everyday moment became an extraordinary one…that continues to resonate its power, inspiration, and indelible impact. Because, as Jessica Curry said, “anything is possible regardless of race, class, or gender.”

    “It’s not our problem,” Trump says in Oval Office of Turkey’s invasion into Syria. He adds that the Kurds are “not angels.” Also, he says this: “They’ve got a lot of sand over there…. There’s a lot of sand they can play with.”

    Documents show stark differences in how Trump’s businesses reported some expenses, profits and occupancy figures for two NYC buildings — making them appear more profitable to a lender and less profitable to officials who set the buildings’ property tax.

    The Democrats leave too much shyt on the table.

    So, THIS happened in Syria:

    Did you see the video of the Russian filming himself, and his troops, inside the abandoned US outpost, basically gloating that we ran?

    It should be used as an ad by the Democrats. Not only against Dot45, but, every GOP Senator running in 2020. It should be running NOW.
    That Democrats should be attacking on NATIONAL SECURITY should be phucking obvious.
    The GOP has no ground to stand on with regards to National Security, and their wigs need to be snatched. BEAT THEM SENSELESS WITH THIS!
