And this was along with the Russian influence campaign.

A top Trump campaign official requested proposals in 2016 from an Israeli company to create fake online identities, to use social media manipulation and to gather intelligence to help defeat Republican primary race opponents and Hillary Clinton, according to interviews and copies of the proposals.

The Trump campaign’s interest in the work began as Russians were escalating their effort to aid Donald J. Trump. Though the Israeli company’s pitches were narrower than Moscow’s interference campaign and appear unconnected, the documents show that a senior Trump aide saw the promise of a disruption effort to swing voters in Mr. Trump’s favor.

The campaign official, Rick Gates, sought one proposal to use bogus personas to target and sway 5,000 delegates to the 2016 Republican National Convention by attacking Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, Mr. Trump’s main opponent at the time. Another proposal describes opposition research and “complementary intelligence activities” about Mrs. Clinton and people close to her, according to copies of the proposals obtained by The New York Times and interviews with four people involved in creating the documents.

A third proposal by the company, Psy-Group, which is staffed by former Israeli intelligence operatives, sketched out a monthslong plan to help Mr. Trump by using social media to help expose or amplify division among rival campaigns and factions. The proposals, part of what Psy-Group called “Project Rome,” used code names to identify the players — Mr. Trump was “Lion” and Mrs. Clinton was “Forest.” Mr. Cruz, who Trump campaign officials feared might lead a revolt over the Republican presidential nomination, was “Bear.”

The article goes on to suggest that there is no evidence that this Psy-Group actually provided these services for the Trump campaign, but here’s the thing, they did meet with Donald Trump Jr., Erik Prince (Brother of Betsy DeVos,) and George Nader a representative of the United Arab Emirates. 

After the election, Nader paid the individual who presented Psy-Group’s proposal two million dollars. 

Now if this company did not provide any services, then what was that money for?

Also, why in the hell would a representative of the United Arab Emirates being paying that money?

There are just a few too many loose ends here for it to be dismissed out of hand. 

But that’s okay because apparently Robert Mueller is hot on the trail, and remember, Rick Gates has been working with the investigators for months now.

    The indictment against the Russians makes no mention of Pinedo by name. However, a source familiar with the case told Reuters he is referred in the charging documents as the person who helped the Russian conspirators launder money, as well as purchase Facebook ads and pay for rally supplies, through PayPal Holdings Inc.

    The scam he had uncovered would go on to become the biggest dirty-money operation in history: the $200 billion Danske Bank scandal.
    not even Kozlov himself—realized that he was stumbling into what would become the single biggest money-laundering scheme used to clean up the ill-gotten gains of Russia’s most powerful men.

    Kozlov becomes the third dead Russian who can be linked to the Danske scandal after Alexander Perepilichnyy, whose company used the bank’s Estonia branch, died in suspicious circumstances in Britain, and Sergei Magnitsky, a Russian lawyer who was investigating the theft of $230 million when he died in Russian custody. It is claimed that the vast majority of the proceeds of that theft were laundered through Danske Bank.

    Anna Politkovskaya, the investigative journalist and arch-critic of the Kremlin, was to be murdered a month later…

    It would be another 12 years before Danske Bank admitted that $234 billion in non-resident money had flowed from Russia and former Soviet republics through Danske’s tiny operation in Estonia. more than $200 billion in foreign money was allowed to race through its accounts in the years after Kozlov raised the alarm.

    The law firm also identified three major international scandals tied to Danske’s accounts in Estonia. It found almost 200 accounts linked to the “Russian Laundromat” exposed by the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP), which uncovered a complex laundering system used to funnel approximately $20 billion out of Russia illegally. An additional 75 accounts were linked to the similar “Azerbaijani Laundromat.”

    The third scandal tied to Danske in the report is the $230 million fraud uncovered by Sergei Magnitsky. In 2008, the tax lawyer was detained, beaten, and left to die in a Russian jail cell after uncovering evidence that Russian officials had been involved in stealing Russian public funds in a scam that victimized Hermitage Capital Management, an investment fund founded by Bill Browder. One controversial figure allegedly linked to money-laundering through the bank was Perepilichnyy, whose company IC Financial Bridge was a client of Danske’s Estonian branch, according to the Financial Times. The Russian businessman turned whistleblower died suddenly near his home in the suburbs outside London; he had been due to testify in Switzerland as part of a case alleging endemic corruption in Russia.

    His is one of a number of suspicious deaths linked to Russia in Britain that are set to be re-examined by the authorities.

    Chaika is a hugely influential man in Moscow; he is also the alleged source of both the supposed Hillary Clinton kompromat offered to Donald Trump Jr. at the Trump Tower meeting and the propaganda handed to controversial Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA).
