Mark Zuckerberg and Google’s Eric Schmidt work for Russia

Wendi Deng meets Roman Abramovich through Rupert Murdoch

When Wendi Deng, the suspected Chinese spy (1) and lover of Putin (2), married Rupert Murdoch in 1999, Murdoch already knew Roman Abramovich through a mutual business partner, the mob-connected Boris Berezovsky. Murdoch owned Nashe Radio in Russia with him (3), and Abramovich owed his early fortunes to Berezovsky through Sibneft. After that, Abramovich paid Berezovsky over a $1 billion across 6 years for “kryshna,” or Mafia protection (4).

Wendi Deng enters Silicon Valley

Wendi Deng first entered Silicon Valley no later than 2006 when she pushed her husband, Rupert Murdoch, to buy MySpace and pushed for Myspace to open an office in Hong Kong (1). It was later rumored Wendi Deng had an affair with Myspace co-founder, Chris DeWolfe (1). She became close friends with a number of Silicon Valley’s elite, including Zuckerberg (2) and Google’s co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, whom she referred to as the “Google guys” (3).

Ever the socialite, Wendi Deng befriended Abramovich’s wife, Dasha Zhukova, since as early as 2007 when Deng introduced Zhukova and Ivanka Trump (4). Ivanka Trump, Wendi Deng, and Dasha Zhukova would later party in Mosocw in 2014 with several Russian oligarchs at the center of Trump-Russia including Len Blavatnik, Viktor Vekselberg, and of course Roman Abramovich himself (5).

Russian oligarch Yuri Milner enters Silicon Valley, recruits Mark Zuckerberg

May 2008 Sergey Brin, a Russian-born American, traveled to Moscow just weeks after Dmitry Medvedev stepped down as head of Gazprom to become Russia’s president (1).

September 2008 Alisher Usmanov of Gazprom bought a third of Yuri Milner’s DST (2).

November 2008 Zuckerberg and Yuri Milner sat together at a Starbucks in Palo Alto discussing raising $1 billion in 60 days (3). Zuckerberg would eventually meet half that goal through Yuri Milner’s DST, which funneled the money from Russia-state owned Gazprom, as revealed by the paradise papers (4).

Zuckerberg and Yuri Milner would become good friends, meeting monthly (5). Milner even attended Zuckerberg’s wedding (6). Milner would also befriend Google’s Sergey Brin (7).

By the end of 2009, Yuri Milner’s DST owned 10% of Facebook.

Dmitry Medvedev and Viktor Vekselberg enter Silicon Valley, recruit Google’s Eric Schmidt

May 2009 Medvedev named Yuri Milner a member of the Commission on Modernization (1).

In June 2010 Dmitry Medvedev headed to Silicon Valley with Sergey Kislyak, Yuri Milner, and Viktor Vekselberg. Vekselberg was financing his own Silicon Valley in Russia, Skolkovo (initially announced Nov 2009), and wanted to create business ties with Silicon Valley’s elite. While there, Eric Schmidt agreed to joined the board of Skolkovo (2).

Eric Schmidt and Wendi Deng were having an affair, though she wasn’t very happy about it, according to notes written by Deng herself (3).

Also on the board for Skolkovo: Dmitry Medvedev and Sergey Gorkov (4).

Sergey Gorkov later met Jared Kushner at Trump Tower and gifted him a “bag of dirt” from Kushner’s ancestral village in the former Russian imperial territory of Belarus (5).

But soon enough, there were suspicions about Skolkovo:

As Obama’s effort to reboot diplomatic relations [with Russia] sputtered, federal officials began raising alarms about the Skolkovo Foundation’s ties to Putin.

“The foundation may be a means for the Russian government to access our nation’s sensitive or classified research, development facilities and dual-use technologies” (6)

On June 23, 2011, Schmidt held a secret meeting with Julian Assange who was under house arrest in Norfolk, UK at the time, already battling with the Obama Administration and fearing an extradition to Sweden would lead to an extradition to the U.S. (1).

August 2012, Assange breached bail and sought asylum at Ecuador’s embassy in the UK.

In Oct 1, 2012, Zuckerberg traveled to Moscow to meet Medvedev and visit Vekselberg at his Skolokovo Innovation Center (2).

While there…

Mr. Zuckerberg and Mr. Medvedev talked about Facebook’s role in politics, though only jokingly in reference to its importance in the American presidential campaign, according to Mr. Medvedev’s press office. (3)

One month later, November 10, 2012, Putin mouth-piece Konstantin Rykov claims through a Facebook post he began working to get Trump elected (4). Two days later, November 12 2012, Trump registered “Make America Great Again” (5).

In May 2013, Russia and Assange together arranged Edward Snowden’s trip to Russia through Hong Kong. A relationship had been established. While in 2010, Assange was releasing cables that hurt Russian interests, by 2012 that had completely stopped (6).

Schmidt, Facebook, and Russian spies converge at Cambridge Analytica

Facebook and Google had embeds in the Trump Campaign, working at Cambridge Analytica. According to Theresa Hong, “they were basically our hands on partners…” (1)

Trump’s campaign ended up spending $75 million on Facebook (2).

On June 13, 2013, Schmidt’s daughter, Sophia, an intern at Cambridge Analytica’s parent company, SCL, pushed CA to work with Peter Thiel’s Palantir (3). (Peter Thiel sits on the board of Facebook and was its first outside investor.)

A Palantir employee, Alfreda Chmieliauskas, would later suggest using the Facebook hack to collect data on millions of Facebook users (4).

In 2013, Suspected Russian spy Alexander Kogan and Joseph Chancellor founded Global Science Research to do just that and sold the data to Cambridge Analtyica with Steven Bannon’s approval. Joseph Chancellor currently works for Facebook (5).

July 2016 Alexander Nix, with the approval of Cambridge Analytica’s financier, Rebekah Mercer, reached out to Assange with support for indexing the DNC hacked emails Assange retrieved from Russian GRU intelligence officers (6).

February 2017 a Cambridge Analytica director visited Julian Assange “to discuss what happened during the US election…” (6)

Conclusion:

In 2008, “Anonymous” hacked Sarah Palin’s email and Wikileaks released them. Apparently Russia planned to hack the DNC, disperse it through Wikileaks, and claim it was an anonymous hacker a la 2008, and used Cambridge Analytica to achieve that goal.

Don’t quit now, Democrats: Wrapping up impeachment early is the dumbest idea ever – Pence, Mulvaney, Pompeo, Bolton and numerous others were clearly involved. What’s the point of stopping now?

Westlake Legal Group bJcbCkYAIBBUCPD097g8aF6qHDv-_zeb26hMn_csm64 Don't quit now, Democrats: Wrapping up impeachment early is the dumbest idea ever - Pence, Mulvaney, Pompeo, Bolton and numerous others were clearly involved. What's the point of stopping now? r/politics

I was confused by this as well. Here is what is happening next as I understand it.

Impeachment now moves to the House Judiciary Committee, led by Jerry Nadler. They will be the ones to draft Articles of Impeachment, and in doing so, they will have the ability to continue gathering evidence and call any additional witnesses that have withheld testimony.

Many Democrats have publicly expressed that they do not want impeachment to get dragged out by Trump-loyalists like Giuliani, Bolton, Pompeo, or Mulvaney, but the House Judiciary Committee is the best suited for navigating through our complicated legal system. However, impeachment powers give house investigators additional power in the judicial system. The most relevant case currently proceeding through our legal system for Charles Kupperman, the former Deputy National Security Advisor, has final arguments scheduled for December 10th. This is the case that will likely set the precedent that all future cases will refer to regarding the constitutional crisis between the White House and Congress, and whether or not witnesses need to comply with the House’s subpoenas. The primary question at hand is whether or not Trump has executive privilege in the face of the impeachment inquiry.
