Gates confirmed Trump, Manafort, Bannon had advance knowledge of wikileaks (GRU) releases in 2016

Trump mentioned WL (GRU) over 160 times in Oct 2016.

Stone sought to ‘debrief’ Kushner on DNC email hack (GRU)

Superseding indictment expected
US co-conspirators?

Gates said the campaign was “in a state of happiness” after WL released its 1st trove of stolen emails in summer 2016. Afterward, he overhead a phone convo btwn Manafort & Stone & listened as Stone said that “additional info would be coming out down the road.”

“Manafort thought that was great,” & said he would brief others, “including the candidate.”

Gates also testified to a phone conversation he witnessed between Trump and Stone while Gates was in a car with the candidate driving to La Guardia.

Gates said Trump told him, after that convo, that more docs damaging to the HRC campaign would be coming.

Trump denied in writing & under oath to Mueller any recollection of ever discussing WL with Stone or being aware of Stone discussing WL with the campaign.

Mueller noted the motive for TeamTrump’s coverup is Trump’s concern that advance notice of WikiLeaks’ releases “could be seen as criminal activity by the president, his campaign, or his family.”

Behind Trump’s accommodating attitude toward Turkey is an unusual back channel: a trio of sons-in-law who married into power and now play key roles in connecting Ankara with Washington.

“Backdoor diplomacy,” Mr. Albayrak called his work with Mr. Kushner

Trump twice surprised his own advisers by agreeing during phone calls w/ Erdogan to pull US troops from northern Syria — and the second time, in early October, he followed through, clearing the way for Turkish forces to attack an American-backed militia there.

Trump has also deferred legally mandated sanctions against Turkey, a member of the NATO, for installing RU missile defense systems.

The Trump adm has also balked at aggressively punishing a state-owned Turkish bank for evading American sanctions against Iran.

“Trump is replacing formal relations among nations in several cases with family-to-family relationship, or crony-to-crony relationships,”

The term “deep state,” in fact, first emerged in Turkey decades ago, long before it came into vogue among Trump supporters.

Erdogan’s advisers say he has cultivated Trump by emphasizing their shared struggles against such entrenched forces w/in their gov’t.

Trump’s ties to Turkey, though, go back more than a decade, beginning with an invitation from Yalcindag to do biz in Istanbul.

Yalcindag flew 10 hours to be with Trump and his family at the New York Hilton Midtown while the 2016 votes were counted.
