Folks outraged by John Bolton being a monster about the Khashoggi tape should recall that Bolton is the Cambridge Analytica/SCL Group OG. His Mercer PAC funded data crimes in UK against Americans. There are extensive receipts. This is wildly underreported.  https://www.parliament.uk/documents/commons-committees/culture-media-and-sport/Chris%20Wylie%20Background%20papers.pdf â€¦

Fun Fact: SCL Group’s White House install on Gulf Affairs was Kirsten Fontenrose. (Since Khashoggi, she’s left the White House to do FARA work for a Saudi funded lobbyist. Because of course.)  https://www.politico.com/story/2018/04/02/kirsten-fontenrose-trump-cambridge-analytica-parent-company-493245 â€¦

Fun Fact: Mike Flynn had to amend his disclosure form after the feds nabbed him to indicate an otherwise undisclosed SCL Group gig during the transition which is not sketchy at all no sir.  https://apnews.com/bfc2de11c52f40929f24d42e56014014 â€¦

Only 20 days tills Flynn’s sentencing but who’s counting? Not me. No sir.  https://www.politico.com/story/2018/09/19/michael-flynn-sentencing-mueller-830724 â€¦
