Eric Garland+ Your Authors @ericgarland Intelligence analyst and advisor to CEOs and governments. I break down global events into clear narratives and appropriate profanity. Sep. 20, 2019 1 min read + Your Authors

Hey @Politico, you might do well to refer to Ballard Partners not as a "state lobbying firm" but as "registered FARA agents for Kremliny clients."  https://www.politico.com/story/2019/09/20/trump-desantis-florida-susie-wiles-1504981 

Or try this fact-based lede: "Trump's main Florida lobbyist - whose firm now represents Turkish money launderers Halkbank, Qatar, Zimbabwe, Azerbaijan, and more..."  https://efile.fara.gov/ords/f?p=1381:200:1341755228528::NO:RP,200:P200_REG_NUMBER:6415 

"JOURNALISTS": Can I spell it out for you? F-A-R-A D-O-T G-O-V.

Or, if you're really ambitious, query the Senate Lobbyist Database and look for unregistered foreign entities. It is SUPER EASY. Couple clicks.  https://soprweb.senate.gov/index.cfm?event=processSearchCriteria
