Ex-NSA operatives reveal how they helped spy on targets for the Arab monarchy dissidents, rival leaders and journalists.
Two weeks after leaving her position as an intelligence analyst for the U.S. National Security Agency in 2014, Lori Stroud was in the Middle East working as a hacker for an Arab monarchy.
She had joined Project Raven, a clandestine team that included more than a dozen former U.S. intelligence operatives recruited to help the United Arab Emirates engage in surveillance of other governments, militants and human rights activists critical of the monarchy.
Stroud and her team, working from a converted mansion in Abu Dhabi known internally as the Villa, would use methods learned from a decade in the U.S intelligence community to help the UAE hack into the phones and computers of its enemies.
Stroud had been recruited by a Maryland cybersecurity contractor to help the Emiratis launch hacking operations, and for three years, she thrived in the job. But in 2016, the Emiratis moved Project Raven to a UAE cybersecurity firm named DarkMatter. Before long, Stroud and other Americans involved in the effort say they saw the mission cross a red line: targeting fellow Americans for surveillance.
I am working for a foreign intelligence agency who is targeting U.S. persons, she told Reuters. I am officially the bad kind of spy.

You don't have to be a twitter member to read the thread.
Yes. Proud Boys demonstrating.
I love the Internets.
Bill Kristol (eek!) seems to be just about the only skeptic tonight on teevee, and HE is saying that Whitaker was trying to influence Mueller with that statement -- that it was strategic.
Are we to think there are no more indictments coming?
What's going on?
We know that some cases may still be handed off.
And that House investigations will begin.
I don't like muddied waters.
Wouldn't that be useful, in order to separate all that preliminary excitement from the discussions of the existential threat of a traitor in the White House?

💥BOOM💥At 5:01pm on Election Day, Trump was down in 8 of 11 key battleground states. He wasnt allowed to, but Chris Vlatso at ABC called David Bossie to let him know. Next thing you know... Trumps numbers start to rise. ELECTION INTERFERENCE ⁉️
ABC reprimands producer for giving data to Trump campaign
Chris Vlasto gave Trump adviser David Bossie proprietary exit polling on Election Night.
🔥🗳🔥The reason propriety exit poll data is not given to campaigns is it can be used to interfere w a campaign that still has hours to go. What did Lewandowski & Bossie do w the data? They gave it to Bannon, Kushner and Priebus...What are the chances it was used nefariously⁉️
🤔The numbers were so bad that they were calling it a kill shot and were convinced they had lost.. Miraculously, like in so many other elections that ended up w Republican wins, the numbers looked different as the night wore on...
😲Why did Vlatso give Bossie polling data⁉️They were friends from way back👇 Apparently, Vlatso was going to be rewarded w a communications job at the White House w Trump if he won...
🔑Why might Vlasto give Trumps Team propriety data⁉️ Vlasto had a history of doing tough (if sometimes less than airtight) reporting on the Clintons and worked on Kenneth Starrs team and printed the salacious details of semen on Lewinskys blue dress...
Who Is Chris Vlasto? The 'GMA' Producer Won't Work In The Trump White House After All
On Wednesday, Politico reported that Good Morning America producer Chris Vlasto was in talks with Donald Trump's transition team about taking on a role in the president-elect's nascent administration
🔥Chris Vlasto and Jackie Judd wrote that Clinton and Monica Lewinsky were caught in an intimate encounter in a private area of the White House which was NOT true. cc @ZevShalev
💥🗳💥One month after Vlasto gave the Trump Campaign secret polling info that he was LOSING the election, he was offered a position as the Sr White House Communications Dir. Nobody seemed to care that his data was wrong - get it? Vlasto gave them the map to fix the votes‼️
🤔Ask yourself this... given everything we know about our voting machines and everything that we havent been told yet about Russias efforts to get Trump elected - that it was impossible for Russia to screw w 107K votes out of 120M in order to ensure Trump was President⁉️
🔥Vlatsos release of exit poll data to Trumps campaign, is more egregious than I guessed. They must have planned this in advance as a back up if Trump was behind because he released data 60 seconds after his phone 📱 was returned from a Quarantine Room😳
🎩 tip @myrubypearl
If Vlasto notifies the Trump Campaign at 5:01pm ET - 3:01pm CST that they were losing- could they have bought last minute ads or targeted a get out the vote GOTV for certain precincts⁉️Could Mueller look at the last minute ad buys?🤔They had hours left before polls closed...
🗳Im wondering if voting machines or tabulating computers were hacked and this particular information helped flip votes, or maybe pre-prepared fake absentee ballots were added to the picture🤔Whatever happened- Trumps numbers started rising 😳
🔥🗳🔥The odds that Trump could win given the exit poll data at 5:01pm were implausible. They called it the Trump Shift - we call it cheating.
Cant believe the GRU can hack voter equipment ⁉️Hacking our electrical grid, infrastructure, nuclear facilities, the White House- is what they do for a living. Look whos at this hacker conference👇They are listed on Muellers indictments💥
🤔The financing plan for Trump Tower Moscow was to use Sberbank and/or VTB Bank which are both under US Sanctions. Trumps role was to make sure that sanctions were lifted. therealdeal.com/2017/08/28/mee
While researching Trumps lawyers and how often they represent RU interests and RU mafia, I saw that Marc Kasowitz, Trumps personal lawyer for the Mueller investigation, at the same time he was working w Trump he was also representing sanctioned Sberbank in a gravel dispute.
💥BOOM💥You know how a bunch of the traitors involved in the #TrumpRussia investigation have a Joint Legal Defense⁉️Well, its always bothered me that there was this huge overlap of Trump lawyers and Russian mafia lawyers for decades- all sharing info💥

Wouldn't this be obstruction of justice, too?
...on The Eleventh Hour on MSNBC.
Let's get the video up when it's available.
I thought it was highly amusing, if not terribly terribly informative.
