In 2016, Russia's Evro Polis, owned by Putin ally Prigozhin, made a deal with the Syrian govt for 25% of the oil produced on territory recaptured from ISIS. Manbij, which Trump just ceded to Prigozhin's mercenaries, was one of the largest ISIS oil markets.
Obviously, Trump is referring to oil producing territories in Syria he just handed over to Putin.
BREAKING: We found more photos of Ron DeSantis on election night with the two arrested Giuliani associates. This time, they're hugging.
Florida’s governor has shrugged off past donor controversies. This time, there were photos. Now it’s not going away.
“Still unclear is why these men dropped $50,000 into DeSantis’ campaign account a day before he was endorsed by Trump.”
Just spoke to President @RTErdogan of Turkey. He told me there was minor sniper and mortar fire that was quickly eliminated. He very much wants the ceasefire, or pause, to work. Likewise, the Kurds want it, and the ultimate solution, to happen. Too bad there wasn’t.....
"The ceasefire, or pause."
Wow. GOP @RepRooney says he thinks Pelosi "has a point" when she said that with Trump, all roads lead to Russia.
"I was skeptical of it like most Republicans were, but I gotta say this business about the Ukraine server ... tells me, what, are we trying to exculpate Russia?"
Deadly Turkish air strikes Friday shattered an hours-old US-brokered deal to stop Ankara's military offensive against Kurdish forces in northeastern Syria.
"Despite the agreement to halt the fighting, air and artillery attacks continue to target the positions of fighters, civilian settlements and the hospital."
#Russia's state TV names Joe Biden as "Trump's most dangerous rival," host Dmitry Kiselyov says Trump should keep digging in Ukraine for "the sweetest" kompromat of all: "proving that Ukraine—not Russia—interfered in the U.S. elections."
!!: “Are we trying to exculpate Russia?” GOP @FrancisRooney on Trump/Giuliani effort to probe Ukrainian/DNC conspiracy theory re 2016.
This is a crucial & under-emphasized issue: Trump apparently withheld military aid to explore a conspiracy theory beneficial to Russia.
Yes, of course.
Trump’s Syria Fiasco Is Part of Putin’s To-Do List:
Trump tried to keep his talks with Putin at Helsinki last year secret from his staff and the world, but #Russia's president held up the checklist for the cameras. Syria was on it.
