Michael Novakhov – SharedNewsLinks℠: Witness in Mueller Inquiry Who Advises U.A.E. Ruler Also Has Ties to Russia

WASHINGTON — A witness who is cooperating in the special counsel investigation, George Nader, has connections to both the Persian Gulf states and Russia and may have information that links two important strands of the inquiry together, interviews and records show.

Mr. Nader’s ties to the United Arab Emirates are well documented — he is an adviser to its leader — but the extent of his links to Russia had not been previously disclosed.

Mr. Nader, a Lebanese-American businessman, has a catalog of international connections that paved the way for numerous meetings with White House officials that have drawn the attention of the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III. For example, Mr. Nader used his longstanding ties to Kirill Dmitriev, the manager of a state-run Russian investment fund, to help set up a meeting in the Seychelles between Mr. Dmitriev and a Trump adviser days before Donald J. Trump took office.

Separately, investigators have asked witnesses about a meeting Mr. Nader attended in 2017 with a New York hedge fund manager, where he was joined by Jared Kushner and Stephen K. Bannon, who at the time were both senior advisers to Mr. Trump.

The investigative trail even led Mr. Mueller’s team to stop an Australian entrepreneur with ties to the U.A.E. after he landed at a Washington-area airport, according to people briefed on the matter. The investigators questioned the entrepreneur about Mr. Nader, including Mr. Nader’s relationship with Russia and his contacts with Mr. Trump’s advisers, as well as the movement of money from the U.A.E. into the United States.

Mr. Nader has received at least partial immunity for his cooperation, and it appears unlikely that Mr. Mueller is trying to build a case against him. Instead, it is common for prosecutors to interview as many people as possible to corroborate the testimony of a key witness like Mr. Nader.

Mr. Nader’s dealings with Russia date at least to 2012, when he helped broker a controversial $4.2 billion deal for the government of Iraq to buy Russian weapons. At the time, he was an informal adviser to Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki of Iraq, and he accompanied Mr. Maliki to Moscow in September 2012 to sign the arms deal at a meeting with President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia. Mr. Nader’s role in the deal was earlier reported by Al-Monitor.

The deal was canceled shortly after because of concerns about corruption, and a spokesman for the prime minister said it would be renegotiated.

Earlier that year, Mr. Nader also attended the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, an invitation-only conference organized by senior officials close to Mr. Putin that Russia presents as its answer to the World Economic Forum held annually in Davos, Switzerland. Mr. Nader is on a list of participants from 2012. Representatives of the St. Petersburg forum did not respond to inquiries about his attendance in subsequent years.

Since then, according to people familiar with his travels, Mr. Nader has returned frequently to Russia on behalf of the Emirati government. He even had his picture taken with Mr. Putin, according to one person who has seen the photograph, although it is unclear when the picture was taken.

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al-Nahyan of Abu Dhabi, the de facto ruler of the U.A.E., is a close ally of the United States and a frequent visitor to the White House. He has also visited Moscow and met with Mr. Putin several times in recent years. One person briefed on the matter said Mr. Nader had accompanied the crown prince to Moscow on numerous occasions.

Last year, days before Mr. Trump took office, Mr. Nader helped set up a meeting at a Seychelles resort between Mr. Dmitriev, Emirati officials and Erik Prince, the former head of Blackwater Worldwide and an adviser to Mr. Trump’s transition team. The meeting, at the bar of a Four Seasons Hotel overlooking the Indian Ocean, was brokered in part to explore the possibility of a back channel for discussions between the Trump administration and the Kremlin, according to people familiar with the meeting.

Such contacts are at the heart of Mr. Mueller’s investigation, and his investigators have repeatedly used aggressive tactics to press witnesses. About four weeks ago, F.B.I. agents working with Mr. Mueller’s team stopped a Russian oligarch at a New York-area airport, questioned him about his dealings with Mr. Trump and seized his electronics, according to a person familiar with the matter, which was first reported by CNN.

Mr. Mueller’s investigators have asked multiple witnesses about the Seychelles meeting, part of a broader line of inquiry surrounding contacts between Emirati advisers and Trump administration officials. They have also pressed for details about a meeting Mr. Nader attended in New York in early 2017 with Mr. Kushner and Mr. Bannon with the hedge fund manager Richard Gerson, a friend of Mr. Kushner’s and the founder of Falcon Edge Capital.

Mr. Mueller’s particular interest in that meeting is unclear, although Mr. Gerson has had business dealings with the court of the U.A.E.’s Prince Mohammed. Mr. Gerson has developed relations with several senior Emirati officials over the years, including with Prince Mohammed himself, and he has often sought investments from Emirati state funds.

Mr. Gerson’s family also has business and philanthropic ties to the Kushners. Mr. Kushner has been friends for more than a decade with Mr. Gerson’s brother Mark, a founder of the specialized research company Gerson Lehrman Group. Mark Gerson was also an early investor in Cadre, a real estate technology company founded by Mr. Kushner and his brother, Josh.

Jared Kushner’s family foundation has also donated tens of thousands of dollars to an Israeli medical aid group led by Mark Gerson.

A lawyer for Mr. Nader and a spokesman for Rick Gerson declined to comment. Mark Gerson did not reply to requests for comment.

Mr. Mueller’s investigators have also questioned Joel Zamel, an Australian entrepreneur who has an office in Tel Aviv and knows Mr. Nader, according to people briefed on the matter. Mr. Zamel has had contacts with senior U.A.E. officials close to its ruler since at least 2014.

In February, federal agents working for Mr. Mueller stopped Mr. Zamel at Reagan National Airport outside Washington and briefly seized his electronic devices, the people said. Mr. Zamel later appeared before a grand jury and was questioned about Mr. Nader, though it was unclear whether Mr. Zamel had any information about Mr. Nader’s ties to Russia.

Mr. Zamel is a witness in Mr. Mueller’s investigation and is not suspected of any wrongdoing, according to Marc Mukasey, a lawyer for Mr. Zamel and his crowdsourced consulting firm, Wikistrat. The Wall Street Journal reported on Monday that Mr. Zamel informally met with Mr. Mueller’s team.

“Joel and Wikistrat have not been accused of anything, have done nothing wrong and are not the focus of the special counsel,” said Mr. Mukasey, a global chairman of Greenberg Traurig’s white-collar defense and special investigations practice. “Prosecutors like to question as many people as they can — even if they have tangential involvement and limited knowledge.”

Mr. Zamel briefly met last spring with Jared Kushner at the White House, another person said, though that meeting does not appear to be a focus of Mr. Mueller’s inquiry.

Wikistrat, which pays security experts around the world for their insights, has landed several government contracts, according to databases and news reports. Its website says the firm can draw from a group of more than 2,200 analysts worldwide who share their thinking on an interactive platform.

Some well-known experts serve on Wikistrat’s advisory council, including Michael V. Hayden, a former head of the C.I.A. and the National Security Agency, and Dennis Ross, a former United States diplomat with deep expertise in the Middle East.

8:52 AM 6/18/2019 – “The third investigation revealed by The Times appears to target Joel Zamel…”

“One of the investigations listed by The Times centers on George Nader, a Lebanese-American “businessman” who served as an emissary for bin Zayed at a Trump Tower meeting on August 3, 2016, which, as The Inquisitr reported, also included Donald Trump Jr. and Elliot Broidy, a prolific Republican donor who ran a controversial private security firm that did business in the Middle East.

At that meeting, Nader told Trump Jr. that the UAE and Saudi Arabia were offering to secretly help Trump Jr.’s father win the presidential election, according to The New York Times report revealing the meeting.

Broidy is also a target of another investigation, according to Sunday’s Times report. That investigation may also be among the 14 referred by Mueller. The reported probe centers on whether Broidy failed to register as a foreign agent in connection with his security work.

The firm run jointly by Broidy and Nader received a defense contract worth nearly $4 million shortly after Trump took office, despite never having received Defense Department contracts before, according to The Washington Post.”

“The third investigation revealed by The Times appears to target Joel Zamel, an Israeli social media specialist whose firm Psy-Group allegedly offered to wage a covert online campaign to influence the election in favor of Trump. Zamel made the offer at the same August 2016 Trump Tower meeting, according to The New York Times.

Russia also waged an aggressive social media campaign to tip the 2016 election toward Trump, Mueller found in his report, and in a 2018 criminal indictment of the Russian “Internet Research Agency” that carried out the campaign, as Politico recounted.”

‘New York Times’ May Have Just Revealed 3 Secret Collusion Investigations Redacted From Robert Mueller Report

Michael_Novakhov shared this story from The Inquisitr.

Of the 14 investigations handed off by Robert Mueller to other prosecutors, only two had been revealed publicly, but a ‘New York Times’ report appears to change all that.

While Robert Mueller last Wednesday gave his first public statement since he was named special counsel in the Russia investigation two years ago, he made it clear that his investigation was complete, and that he was closing the special counsel’s office and retiring from the United States Justice Department, as The Washington Post reported. But his report of the investigation’s findings included numerous potential crimes that remained to be investigated — and would be, by other prosecutors.

In fact, the Mueller report listed 14 separate investigations that Mueller’s office referred, or handed off, to other federal prosecutors. Those cases are listed in Appendix D-3 of the report, which is available online via The New York Times. The one problem with the list was that 12 of those 14 investigations were kept secret by Attorney General William Barr, who redacted any details about those 12 probes, including the subjects or targets of the investigations.

But of those 12 secret investigations, The New York Times published a report on Sunday that may have revealed three of them — and they involve possible Trump campaign collusion not simply with Russia, but with Middle Eastern countries as well.

According to The Times, the investigations center around Trump campaign contacts related to United Arab Emirates Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed, commanders of the country’s armed forces and de facto ruler of the entire UAE. The prince was called “arguably the most powerful leader in the Arab world,” by the paper’s report.

Michael Novakhov – SharedNewsLinks℠: “Crickets. They’re Gone”: Why the Mercers, Trump’s Biggest 2016 Backers, Have Bailed on Him

To judge from the recent leak of its internal poll numbers, Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign has a lot of ground to make up—and Trump family members have already been sounding alarms that Republican mega donors aren’t stepping up to close the gap. Don Jr. recently called a prominent donor and warned that Trump’s money haul is falling behind where Barack Obama was early in his reelection, while Jared Kushner has privately complained to RNC chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel that Trump’s war chest is not as big as it should be at this point in the cycle.

“Jared doesn’t like what’s going on. He basically believes the RNC should be doing a lot better,” a former West Wing official familiar with the conversations told me. According to this official and another source, Kushner wants to recruit Mike Pence’s former chief of staff, Nick Ayers, back to Washington for a senior position at the RNC to bolster the GOP’s fund-raising. “Jared wants Nick, but Ronna would protest that,” the former West Wing official said. (The White House did not respond to requests for comment. A spokesperson for the RNC said the group “has a great working relationship with the team at the White House” and praised McDaniel for “fundraising records month after month.”)

But a large part of the problem is that Trump has lost the financial support of one of his biggest backers in 2016: the Mercers. With their ties to Steve Bannon, Breitbart, and Cambridge Analytica, Robert Mercer and his daughter Rebekah were superstars last cycle. According to half a dozen sources familiar with the reclusive family’s political activities, the Mercers have drastically curtailed their political donations in recent months and will likely not play a significant role in 2020. “They think that the administration could do so much more. They’ve been very vocal about that to the president,” a person familiar with the Mercers’ thinking told me. “It’s like they’ve disappeared,” the former West Wing official added. “Crickets. They’re gone,” a prominent Republican strategist said.

The numbers tell the story. In 2016, Robert Mercer, the former co-CEO of hedge fund Renaissance Technologies, and his wife, Diana, donated $15.5 million to a variety of different organizations to help elect Trump, and they put up another $1 million for the inaugural committee. They also provided substantial support to Breitbart, which at times seemed to function as an extra arm of the Trump campaign. The Washington Post reported they spent more than $49 million on political activities in 2016 and that year’s election cycle. “The Mercers laid the groundwork for the Trump revolution,” Steve Bannon said in 2017. In addition to the millions the Mercers pumped into Trump’s election, they spent $10 million on Breitbart News and millions more on Cambridge Analytica, the data firm cofounded by Robert Mercer in 2013.

But in 2018 the Mercers donated only $400,000 to the pro-Trump Great America PAC, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Their total political spending dropped to $2.9 million last year. Sources said the Mercers cut back their spending because they felt scarred by the press scrutiny that followed their association with Trump. Two sources said Rebekah’s divorce from her husband is also motivating her to keep a low profile. “This whole thing did not end up well for them,” former Trump adviser Sam Nunberg told me. “They’ve been destroyed,” a former West Wing official said. A former Renaissance executive said: “Bob views all his political spending as a bad investment.” (The Mercers did not respond to requests for comment.)

Like Trump, the Mercers exploded onto the national scene from seemingly nowhere. Robert, a painfully shy computer scientist who reportedly prefers cats to people, never gave interviews. When I approached Robert at Trump’s 2016 election-night party at the New York Hilton, he smiled and walked away.

At that time, the Mercers had become so influential with Trump that they successfully installed their handpicked strategists, Bannon and Kellyanne Conway, to run Trump’s campaign in the closing months of 2016. After Trump won, Rebekah served as a senior member of the transition team. And in December 2016, Trump repaid their loyalty by making an appearance at Robert’s annual costume ball held at his Long Island mansion known as the Owl’s Nest.

But the relationship was stress tested from the beginning of Trump’s term. In March 2017, The New Yorker published an embarrassing profile of Robert Mercer, depicting him as an eccentric recluse. Five months later, Trump exiled Bannon, which drove a wedge between Trump and the Mercers, Bannon’s longtime patrons. Around the same time, Mercer’s support for Trump and Breitbart was outraging Renaissance employees and the fund’s investors, sources told me. (The hedge fund’s founder, James Simons, is among the country’s biggest Democratic donors.) In November 2017, Mercer was pushed out of Renaissance and he publicly transferred his stake in Breitbart to his daughters. A month later, the Mercers’ relationship with Bannon reached a breaking point when Bannon was quoted extensively in Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury criticizing the Trump family. Rebekah issued a rare statement distancing herself from Bannon. “My family and I have not communicated with Steve Bannon in many months and have provided no financial support to his political agenda, nor do we support his recent actions and statements,” it read. “Bob and Rebekah both felt so burned by Bannon and the negative publicity,” a person close to the Mercers told me.

Meanwhile, the Mercers’ investment in Cambridge Analytica was putting them in legal jeopardy. A few months after Robert left Renaissance, it was reported that the FBI opened an investigation of Cambridge in the wake of revelations that the firm appropriated private data from more than 50 million Facebook profiles. Last May, the Mercers shut the company down. “The Cambridge investigation really spooked them,” said the prominent Republican strategist.

Another factor driving the Mercers off the national stage is that Trump was never their ideal candidate, despite the millions they spent helping him, sources told me. “They never really liked Trump,” the person close to the Mercers said. During the 2016 Republican primary, the Mercers put all their cards on Ted Cruz. The source recalled that Robert invited Kellyanne Conway, who was then working for a pro-Cruz super PAC, to his Florida mansion and told her to “beat Trump!” What seemed to be most driving the Mercers was a hatred of Hillary Clinton. “Trump was just Bob’s play against Hillary,” the former Renaissance executive said. “Bob said she and her husband were murderers who would destroy the country. He thought she was an evil person and a socialist.”

Without the specter of a Clinton presidency to motivate them, the Mercers are returning to their pre-Trump private existence. Robert didn’t host a costume ball last year. But the family remains active outside of politics. For example, the Mercers’ foundation continues to donate to the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine, whose cofounder, Arthur Robinson, is a pro-nuclear energy climate change skeptic who does research on slowing down human aging. “They’re still supporting us at levels that are comparable to what they’ve been,” Robinson told me.

Blunt called for an independent international investigation into Morsi’s death.

Egyptian authorities were not immediately available for comment. The country’s public prosecutor, Nabil Ahmad Sadiq, said in a statement that Morsi “fainted and fell to the ground” after speaking for five minutes during his trial. He was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, Sadiq said.

U.S. Security Officials Still Consider Trump a Security Risk

1 Share
It wasn’t over. It still isn’t over. Photo: Mikhail Svetlov/Getty Images
The 21st and 22nd paragraphs of a weekend New York Times report on anti-Russian cybersecurity operations contained a harrowing detail. President Trump reportedly “had not been briefed in any detail” on the operations, “for concern over his reaction — and the possibility that he might countermand it or discuss it with foreign officials.”
That is to say, American national-security officials are declining to share Russia-related intelligence with the president of the United States because they view him as a security risk.
The denouement of the Mueller report seemed to bury the question of secret Russian leverage over Trump. In the days after Attorney General William Barr delivered his misleading summary of its contents, Trump’s allies declared all grounds for suspicion of his activity a debunked conspiracy theory, and the news media engaged in an orgy of self-flagellation over their pursuit of Trump’s connections that — according to Barr — went nowhere.
But the Mueller report focused on criminal questions, not counterintelligence. Representative Adam Schiff recently noted that Congress stopped receiving counterintelligence briefings on Trump and Russia after FBI director James Comey was fired two years ago. Whether Russia still has blackmail or financial leverage over Trump is a giant question hovering over the presidency, with no clear avenue of resolution.
That Vladimir Putin had secret leverage over Trump in the very recent past is now a matter of public record. Mueller found that during the campaign, Trump was negotiating a deal to build towers in Moscow that promised a potential payout of several hundred million dollars “without assuming significant liabilities or financing commitments” — that is, a guaranteed payoff, similar to the generous putative business deals Putin often makes secretly with other foreign right-wing politicians he has courted. Putin’s leverage in this transaction was compounded by the fact that Trump denied its existence during the campaign, giving Russia blackmail leverage over him.
Trump’s defenders have seized on several anti-Russian steps his administration has taken as supposed evidence that Putin has no secret hold on the president. The dilemma, of course, is that Trump’s Russophilia makes him an extreme outlier in his party, which means his government is staffed with people committed to very different policies toward Moscow.

National Review editor Rich Lowry cites the Times report as more proof that “despite his rhetoric, Trump has been tougher on Russian than Obama was,” glossing over the part of the article reporting that Trump was not informed of the actions for fear he would undermine them.
The same tension has played out in other policies where Republicans have forced hawkish stances upon a very unwilling president. After Congress passed anti-Russia sanctions by a veto-proof supermajority, Trump fumed in private, and “it took aides four days to persuade Trump to sign the bill.”
Trump’s response to the report inadvertently confirmed its most damning passage. Even if it isn’t true that the U.S. is preparing aggressive countermeasures against Russian cyberstrikes, Trump had no reason to deny it. The threat serves as valuable deterrence. Instead, just as he raged privately against sanctions on Russia, he raged publicly against the report of his government’s anti-Russian acts:
Trump has repeatedly met with Putin in unusually secret conditions, refusing to allow foreign-policy staffers to attend, and even at one point confiscating a translator’s notes. Mueller has finished his work, and — save for foreign-policy bureaucrats keeping their actions secret from the president — there’s no obvious mechanism for identifying and limiting the threat of Russian leverage over him. For all we know, Trump is still being promised, or even receiving, payoffs from Russia. None of these actions would amount to crimes. They do, however, constitute a crisis — not just of national security but of national sovereignty.

Opinion | A Down and Dirty White House

1 Share
WASHINGTON — It is very disorienting when those who are supposed to be our highest moral exemplars have no morals — not even of the alley-cat variety.
During the sexual abuse scandal in the Catholic Church, it was stunning to see wide swaths of clergymen, responsible for teaching children right from wrong, perverting right and wrong.
Now it is shocking to see an American president with a twisted sense of right and wrong. In yet another Nureyev leap into the absurd, Donald Trump went from no-collusion to pro-collusion, as Susan Glasser put it in The New Yorker, saying that he would welcome foreign governments’ peddling dirt on his political rivals. Why bother to alert the F.B.I. if you are getting good oppo?
I have seen a lot of politicians lie — even ones I swore never would. I have watched other Republican leaders play on white fears and choke off checks and balances. It’s tough to match Dick Cheney for putting yourself above the law.
When I covered Bush 41, Bush loyalists were looking overseas for dirt on Bill Clinton during the 1992 race. There were unfounded rumors that, while he was a Rhodes scholar at Oxford, Clinton had written a letter about renouncing his citizenship to protest the Vietnam war.
As Michael Isikoff and Eugene Robinson wrote in The Washington Post in October 1992: “A senior State Department official this month ordered the U.S. Embassy in London to conduct an ‘extremely thorough’ search for files on Bill Clinton’s years as a graduate student in England, including any documents relating to the Democratic presidential candidate’s draft status and citizenship, according to department officials.” The instructions came at a time when Republicans were escalating their attacks on Clinton’s draft history.
Around the same time, the Britons went on their own fishing expedition for Clinton’s files. Betsey Wright, a former Clinton campaign official, told reporters that the campaign had received reports that Republicans had approached Tories for help in rifling through files to find damaging information on Clinton.
James Baker, Bush’s chief of staff, was so anguished about “that awful little passport pimple,” as the president called the scandal, that he offered to resign.
Such shame seems quaint in Trumpworld. The president is an unabashed gargoyle atop the White House, chomping on American values.
The way Trump publicly wallows in his mendaciousness and amorality is unique in presidential history. His motto might as well be: “I cannot not tell a lie.” His ego is too fragile to play patriarch to the country, so he takes the more ruinous role of provocateur.
There’s no vaccination against the vile machinations of Trump. But there are some signs, in this sickened capital, that antibodies are kicking in. The president and his top officials are getting taken to task by a range of government watchdogs.
Ellen Weintraub, the chair of the Federal Election Commission, tweeted on Thursday, “I would not have thought that I needed to say this,” as a preface to her stern statement: “It is illegal for any person to solicit, accept, or receive anything of value from a foreign national in connection with a U.S. election. This is not a novel concept.”
Even craven Republican lawmakers — at long last — were squirming over Trump’s contention to George Stephanopoulos that foreign interference in our election would be swell.
Also on Thursday, Special Counsel Henry Kerner recommended that “repeat offender” Kellyanne Conway be removed from her job for violating the Hatch Act, also known as the Act to Prevent Pernicious Political Activities, which bars federal workers from tainting the workplace with politics.
Kerner said his move was unprecedented, but told The Post: “You know what else is unprecedented? Kellyanne Conway’s behavior. In interview after interview, she uses her official capacity to disparage announced candidates, which is not allowed.” The president, tireless champion of the First Amendment, said Conway was merely exercising her right to free speech.
The Onion chimed in with this headline: “Kellyanne Conway Decides to Lie Low Until Rule of Law Dies Down.”
Trump may have lost his knack for stiletto nicknames. “Sleepy Joe” and “Nervous Nancy” don’t cut it. (Pelosi looked anything but nervous in her “Kill Bill” yellow zippered motorcycle jacket.) And he may be nervous himself because of “devastating” internal polling showing him trailing Joe Biden in key states, as The Times’s Annie Karni and Maggie Haberman wrote. He denied the polls existed but later instructed his campaign to play up different data.
Trump doesn’t want to lose just when he seems to be getting more comfortable with all the power he wields.
He makes it so easy for everyone to focus on the tweets and the maniacal, moronic reality show that you have to struggle to look away and take the measure of what he’s doing.
And what he’s doing is altering domestic and foreign policy in terrible ways while running up huge deficits.
The Trump White House may be a clown show and a criminal enterprise. But it’s also an actual presidency.
It’s turning out to be a genuinely reactionary administration led by a wannabe authoritarian who refuses to recognize constitutional checks on power. The real danger is not the antics but the policies. If Trump isn’t careful, he’s going to add substance to his administration. And it won’t be the kind we want.

Nxivm Trial: Sex Cult Tried to Gather Intelligence on ‘Enemies,’ Including Schumer

1 Share
[What you need to know to start the day: Get New York Today in your inbox.]
The cache of documents surfaced in 2018 when the F.B.I. searched the home of a senior member of the cultlike group Nxivm.
Photographs from the search showed agents had found a clear plastic box with a red lid in the basement of a home belonging to Nancy Salzman, Nxivm’s co-founder, who was known as “Prefect.”
Inside, agents said, were folders of financial reports labeled with names of journalists, judges, cult experts and others, including Senator Chuck Schumer; the then state attorney general, Eliot Spitzer; and the State Senate majority leader, Joseph L. Bruno.
Most, if not all, of the financial material was inaccurate, an F.B.I. agent, Michael Weniger, said. But Nxivm members appeared to be making a genuine effort to gather information on the targets.
“The vast majority of the individuals that had folders inside the box were individuals that had some type of criticism of Nxivm and or the defendant,” he testified on Thursday in the racketeering and sex trafficking case of the group’s leader, Keith Raniere.
Mr. Weniger finished testifying on Friday, closing the prosecution’s case six weeks after it began on May 7. Afterward, the defense declined to present witnesses, and in the only instance during the trial in which he has spoken publicly, Mr. Raniere confirmed to the judge in a soft voice that he would not be taking the stand.
Summations are scheduled for Monday.
Over the course of the trial in Federal District Court in Brooklyn, six former Nxivm members offered wrenching and sometimes lurid accounts of manipulation and sexual abuse.
But Mr. Weniger appeared to serve as an expert of sorts, someone who could draw from broad knowledge of Nxivm and introduce documents involving members who were not called to the stand.
Mr. Raniere, 58, co-founded Nxivm (pronounced nex-ee-um) in the 1990s as a self-help organization based near Albany. He is now on trial on charges of racketeering conspiracy, identity theft, extortion, forced labor, money laundering, wire fraud and sex trafficking.
Although he presented himself as a humanitarian, prosecutors have said Mr. Raniere, known as “Vanguard,” exploited his followers, particularly women. Some were branded with his initials and assigned to have sex with him.
Much of Mr. Weniger’s testimony emphasized the conspiratorial nature of Nxivm and the lengths to which its members would go to monitor those whom they perceived as hostile.
Earlier in the trial, a witness identified only as Daniela said Nxivm tried to obtain personal information and banking records of people on a “list of enemies” who members believed wanted to destroy the group.
She added that she hacked into the computer accounts of several people at the behest of Mr. Raniere and a Nxivm member named Kristin Keeffe.
As part of that effort, Daniela said, she obtained years of emails from the account of the liquor magnate Edgar M. Bronfman Sr., whose daughter, Clare Bronfman, was a senior member of Nxivm.
Among those whose names appeared on folders in Ms. Salzman’s basement were journalists with The Albany Times Union, which had run investigative stories about Nxivm, and four federal judges who had presided over cases involving the group.
Also included was information about the political operative Roger Stone, who Mr. Weniger said had worked for Nxivm; Rick Ross, a cult expert the group had sued; Kristin Snyder, a Nxivm student who was presumed to have died in Alaska; and Mr. Bronfman.
Mr. Weniger said that Ms. Bronfman appeared to have paid an investigations company in Montreal “upward of $400,000.” Email messages introduced as evidence showed that her payments to the company, Canaprobe Group, were for financial reports.
Ms. Keeffe forwarded some of that material to Emiliano Salinas, a Nxivm member whose father, Carlos Salinas de Gortari, had been president of Mexico, the messages also showed. Mr. Salinas then sent it to a man at a private equity fund. And that man sent the information to a private investigator in New York who attempted to verify it, Mr. Weniger said.
In some email exchanges, Mr. Raniere “specifically discusses with Kristin Keeffe the relationship Nxivm had with Canaprobe,” Mr. Weniger testified.
Mr. Weniger acknowledged that it appeared that Canaprobe had given the Nxivm members bogus information and that Ms. Bronfman had eventually sued the company.
One of Mr. Raniere’s lawyers, Marc Agnifilo, suggested to Mr. Weniger that Ms. Keeffe may have been carrying out investigations on her own.
He also portrayed her as paranoid, pointing to an instance in which she was suspicious of a black pickup truck in her neighborhood and an occasion when she theorized that house painters might be conducting undercover surveillance of her home.
But Mr. Weniger testified that Ms. Keeffe was not the only member of Nxivm to exhibit paranoia.
At one point, Mr. Weniger said, Nxivm sent investigators to Key West, Fla., and, apparently, Palm Springs, Calif., to look for Ms. Snyder, the former Nxivm student.
In 2003 Ms. Snyder left an “intensive” Nxivm course in a hotel in Anchorage and wrote a note saying she had been “brainwashed,” The Times Union reported. She was then believed to have intentionally capsized a kayak in the icy waters of Resurrection Bay.
Mr. Raniere believed word of her death was a conspiracy to create “negative publicity,” according to Daniela’s testimony. And Mr. Weniger said there was a belief among Nxivm members that Ms. Snyder “was still alive and that she was moving from place to place.”
The animosity toward Mr. Bronfman, who was the chief executive of the Seagram Company, appeared to be driven by the fact that he was quoted in a story in Forbes magazine in 2003 as saying of Nxivm: “I think it’s a cult.”
He expanded on that opinion in an email to Ms. Bronfman, writing in an apparent reference to Ms. Snyder and Ms. Salzman “a young woman died in Alaska and some people blame Nancy’s diagnosis,” then criticizing the long hours that Nxivm courses typically lasted.
“Having the session go from 8:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. is extreme and it’s what cults do to gain dominance over their victims,” he wrote. “A group led by two people who call themselves Vanguard and Prefect certainly sounds like a cult.”

Why It’s Necessary to Bring Jewish Communism into Full View

Airing the complicity of some American Jews with Soviet criminality is essential to the honor and the reputation of the Jewish people.

About the author

Ruth R. Wisse is a research professor at Harvard and a distinguished senior fellow at the Tikvah Fund. Her most recent book is No Joke: Making Jewish Humor (2013).

David Evanier has done a great service in profiling Morton Sobell, one of the American Jews who spied for Stalin’s KGB. Though Evanier had already covered some of this ground in his 1991 novel Red Love, his account in Mosaic gives us facts and information unadorned by the arts of fiction.
The biggest fact is this: the Soviet project was founded on falsehood and sustained and exported through deceit. In some ways, the export version has been more successful than the native one. It has been easier for post-Soviet Russia to clean up after Chernobyl than for Americans to clean up from the decades-long Soviet infiltration into American politics, society, and culture. The only antidote is truth.
“Many of these American Communists were Jewish,” writes Evanier, truthfully, about the Communist Party USA (CPUSA), which recruited agents and followers in many branches of culture as well as industry. He credits his own disaffection from Communism to his 1962 stay in an Israeli kibbutz where the combined presence of Holocaust survivors and dedicated pioneers jolted him into a fresh appreciation of his own Jewishness. By contrast, Sobell and his cohort showed no interest in “Jewish history, culture, or the birth of Israel”—or in their own complicity in Soviet crimes, including crimes against their fellow Jews. There is likewise no reason to think that most former American Jewish Communists and fellow travelers experienced Evanier’s thoroughgoing change of heart.
It is admittedly risky to raise the subject of Jewish involvement with Communism. Anti-Semitism trolls for excuses to blame Jews for anything and everything. After the fall of the Soviet empire, some citizens of countries that had been for decades under Soviet control found it convenient to explain their lingering anti-Jewish animus as payback for the Jewish Bolsheviks who had oppressed them.
On the American scene, Harvey Klehr in his response to Evanier’s essay very helpfully puts the numbers in perspective, showing what a small percentage of American Jews actually belonged to the CPUSA or supported Bolshevism. Still, there’s reason to worry that just raising the subject could provide fuel for dedicated anti-Semites. And yet, however legitimate the concern, it is dwarfed by the greater dangers of sustained self-deception.
Here, in three parts, is why I say that.
I.
American Jews who joined the Communist party and spied for the Soviets betrayed the Jews before they betrayed America.
To become a member of the party was to undergo a kind of conversion—a voluntary conversion, and one not literally requiring baptism, but, particularly for a Jew, an act far more radical than any mere change in political affiliation. The Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 established the dictatorship of the proletariat, and the Communist International (Comintern) undertook “to struggle by all available means, including armed force, for the overthrow of the international bourgeoisie and the creation of an international Soviet republic as a transition stage to the complete abolition of the state.” Yet whereas other nationalities were allowed to “transition” to self-dissolution, Jews, already scattered among the nations, were denounced as reactionary for wanting to retain their Jewishness.
Marxism-Leninism, ideologically incompatible with Judaism, specifically required the Jewish people to dissolve into the international proletariat. As part of its need to eradicate both the Jewish religion and Jewish nationhood, the Soviet Union forbade the teaching of Hebrew, a language essential to both. The “Jewish sections” of the party, the yevsektsii, enforced this program of Sovietization. As the historian Yuri Slezkine writes in his The House of Government, while Polish, Latvian, and Georgian high-ranking members of the party “seemed to assume that proletarian internationalism was compatible with their native tongues, songs, and foods,” high-ranking Jewish members did not speak Yiddish at home or try to pass anything Jewish on to their children. Many proved their new loyalty by pursuing their fellow Jews with special vigor.
When it came to Zionism, the Communist party under Stalin hailed the 1929 Arab pogroms against Jews in Palestine as the start of an Arab Communist revolution and created the watchwords of 20th-century anti-Zionism: a leftist version of anti-Semitism that condemned Jewish national aspirations as a crime against the international order.
The slogans of anti-Zionism were forged in Russia and exported to America with the aid of Jewish Communists in the years when Palestine was the only potential haven for Jews fleeing Hitlerism and continental anti-Semitism. Indeed, Jews were among the most passionate of all anti-Zionists; Isaac Deutscher’s invention of the paradoxical term “non-Jewish Jew” camouflages the many thousands who were vehemently anti-Jewish Jews.
Thus, there is nothing new or strange in the fact that, in today’s universities, Jews of the far left, including Israelis, are some of the most vociferously anti-Israel professors and agitators on campus. Where other minorities may freely display their special grievances and ethnocentric resentments, a percentage of Jews join the intersectional coalition of the “oppressed” in attacking the Jewish homeland for its determination to be, and to remain, the Jewish homeland.
The United States, which prides itself in its victory over the Nazis, will never countenance the anti-Semitism of the alt-right. Anti-Zionism, on the other hand, has become a linchpin of the left, with some Jews carrying its flag as they did in the 1930s. That is one reason why it is necessary to bring Jewish Communism into full view, if only to help slow the spread of its anti-Jewish venom under such current guises as “socialism,” “social justice,” and “voices for peace.”
2.
Exposing Jewish complicity with Soviet criminality is essential to the reputation and the future of Yiddish.
The Communist appropriation of the Yiddish language as part of its war on Jewishness has not yet been acknowledged. When the Bolshevik leadership came to realize that it could not simply dissolve its Jewish communities overnight, it declared Yiddish the Jewish instrument of Sovietization, and toward that end it subsidized Yiddish education and culture. This won praise from those who either shared Soviet aims or were prepared to overlook them.
The results were morally catastrophic. Yiddish writers, scholars, dramatists, and actors eager to work in their professions adjusted to the demands of Sovietization, which included active promotion of the criminal regime. By this method, even as the Soviet constitution formally outlawed anti-Semitism directed against persons of Jewish descent, the Soviet Union strove to outlaw the propagation of a Jewish future. Yiddish was the instrument of doing away with Judaism and Jewish life.
To be sure, from the beginnings of modern Jewish politics, Yiddish had been featured as the language of the downtrodden, associated with socialism and the labor movement and also with Zionism and Labor Zionism (the latter of which tried to amalgamate national and Marxist goals). Some of these movements genuinely valued Yiddish; for others, it was a means to an end. Only Communism seized upon the uses of Yiddish as an anti-Jewish language.
In 1922, to promote world revolution (while greatly exaggerating Jewish political influence), the Comintern established in New York the Yiddish daily Morgen Freiheit, controlling the paper from Moscow while proclaiming its editorial independence. Because it operated in Yiddish, the Freiheit appeared to be under Jewish auspices and responsive to Jewish concerns. But in synch with all Soviet-sponsored channels around the world, it maligned Judaism and turned hatred of “Zionists” into a virtue.
Anti-Jewish caricatures that appeared in the Freiheit were indistinguishable from those in the interwar Nazi press. American capitalism was second only to the Jewish bourgeoisie as a target of the paper’s editorial ire, and the Soviets encouraged its American Yiddish readers to betray both their Jewish homeland and their American home.
Yes, other Jews on the left, along with Zionists and traditionalists, mounted a stiff resistance to Communism in Yiddish (and in English). But the financial resources and support of Moscow gave Yiddish Communists a practical advantage. In this way, possibly for the first time in Jewish history, a Jewish language was employed to promote an evil regime.
There has so far been no reckoning from within Yiddish ranks of some of the hateful writings to which the language gave safe harbor. To the contrary, some students of Yiddish today are still seduced by what the author Vivian Gornick lauds as the “romance” of Communism. This obliges lovers of Yiddish like myself to assume, with discriminating intelligence, the admittedly difficult and unpleasant task of exposing and judging Soviet-stained Yiddish culture by the standards of Jewish civilization. As we share that culture’s moments of joy and fathom its losses, culling the wisdom contained in its vast literature, we should also undertake for Yiddish the same kind of truth-telling that David Evanier has done in the case of the Jewish spy Morton Sobell.
3.
By far the most consequential aspect of Soviet spying in America was the sustained denial by the spies themselves of responsibility for their crimes, and by their supporters and fellow travelers of complicity in the shared turpitude. On the contrary, all continued to affirm their innocence.
Had spies like the Rosenbergs, Sobell, and the others admitted their deeds, they might have helped to restore a measure of moral clarity for Americans, and assisted in the task of demolishing the tyranny they had served. That they did not and could not tell the truth testifies to Communism’s grounding in lies and in its Orwellian inversion of evil for good.
Here the difference from fascism is instructive. Germany flaunted its jackboot intentions; the Soviet Union invaded the West behind Picasso’s dove of peace. By maintaining the lie of their innocence, the spies and their supporters hoped to damage America perhaps even more than they had through the treason of which they stood accused.
And, to some substantial degree, they succeeded. Thanks in part to the unwitting cooperation of their accusers, the charade of innocence made possible the perpetuation of the big lie.
The House Committee on Un-American Activities (HUAC), which was founded in the 1930s to investigate both fascist and Communist infiltration, focused exclusively on the latter after the allied victory over the Nazis in Europe, and by the 1950s had broadened its scope to include members of Moscow-directed Communist cells in Hollywood and elsewhere.
The prosecutorial overreach of HUAC and then of Senator Joseph McCarthy stirred sympathies both for the defendants and for those fired or blacklisted without having been proved guilty of any crime. The organized left then used “McCarthyism” to invert the accuser and the accused. Communists who refused to testify were hailed for their heroism, while those (like the director Elia Kazan) who told the truth were tarred as betrayers. The speed with which McCarthy was relieved of his post did not prevent his name and image from being used as evidence of American brutality. In this way, the attempt to root out the network of subterfuge backfired, or rather was hijacked by the very networks it had hoped to disrupt. The Communists who lied about their affiliation reinforced the damage of the spies who maintained their innocence.
It is easy to see why the same Hollywood that, rushing to satisfy public pressure, created a blacklist of Communists in the late 1940s would later give way just as spinelessly to the leftists it had once tried to expel. Movies like The Front, television programs like Legacy of the Hollywood Blacklist, and an assembly line of books—of which Lillian Hellman’s Scoundrel Time and Victor Navasky’s Naming Names are only the best known—created a pro-Communist martyrology. The real collusion with Russia—the one we had good reason to worry about—was quashed by tales of American injustice.
This was a technique the Soviets perfected over decades, from the murder trial of the anarchists Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, to the prosecution of the Scottsboro Boys, to the espionage trial of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg and beyond, in each case using local propagandists to denounce the American justice system regardless of its actual results. Portraying America as the persecutor of powerless innocents silenced accusations of the Soviet criminal regime and undermined American national self-confidence.
The media, the intelligentsia, and the academy paved the way. The cold war was fought not only on the military and diplomatic front but also, especially in its later decades, in the cafeterias and on the playing fields of elite American universities. Every Communist who lied was a soldier in that war.
One could readily provide nuanced arguments about why Jews were attracted to movements that set out to achieve what the Hebrew prophets had prophesied, and other nuanced arguments about the genuine imperfections of America. But nothing changes the fact that a meaningful number of Jews tried to replace the American way of life by a system that claimed to be ostensibly better even as they conspired to conceal that it was indescribably worse.
Senator Bernie Sanders does not say what he saw on his honeymoon in the Soviet Union, instead coddling the dream of an imposed socialism as though it had never been tried. Many Communist sympathizers and their descendants, now joined by new recruits, still lack the courage to say the spies betrayed America, and in what evil cause.
We expect countries under foreign occupation, some of whose citizens committed evil, to air those offenses as a way of forswearing their repetition. Jews can expect no less of themselves, and for the same reasons. David Evanier’s admirable essay is one such attempt to reestablish truth.

Stupid, Incompetent, Racist, Loser: Do Trump’s Tweets Project His Own Faults Onto Others?

1 Share
Donald Trump’s propensity for ridiculing his opponents (both real and imagined) is well known to even the most casual observer. He genuinely seems to delight in name calling, belittling, and demeaning rhetoric, and like most bullies he rarely passes on the opportunity to denigrate his foes. So, not surprisingly, Trump seized on the occasion of Father’s Day weekend to unleash a torrent of ugly comments directed at others.
The president’s ire this week was trained on some his favorite scapegoats: Democrats, Hillary Clinton, the mainstream news media, The New York TimesThe Washington Post, and London Mayor Sadiq Khan. There is, of course, nothing especially newsworthy about the fact that Trump spent much of Father’s Day weekend engaged in his favorite pastime: savagely degrading and disparaging others on Twitter.
But what I wish to highlight is the specifically rhetorical character of his Twitter putdowns. They are all governed by one unifying motivation: projection. Simply put, Trump consistently projects his own worst shortcomings and sins onto others. In fact, there is no better insight into Donald Trump and what he thinks about himself, if only unconsciously, than the things he repeatedly says about others in 280-character bursts.
Indeed, Trump’s most frequent putdowns on Twitter function as a virtual Rorschach test for his own personality traits and behavior. A few of the president’s favorite putdowns as of June 17, 2019 include: loser (234 tweets), dumb (222 tweets), terrible (204 tweets), stupid (183 tweets), weak (156 tweets), dishonest (115 tweets), incompetent (92 tweets), fool (83 tweets), pathetic (72 tweets), moron (52 tweets), and racist (50 tweets).
Think about it: why would you repeatedly—not occasionally, but repeatedly—call a wide array of individuals and groups “stupid,” “dishonest” and “racist” if you did not consistently see these traits in yourself? You wouldn’t. You also wouldn’t feel the need to constantly affirm how smart, honest, and not racist you are (remember Trump famously told Piers Morgan, “I’m the least racist person anybody is going to meet,”) unless you were exceedingly apprehensive about those very things.
Given Trump’s tendency to talk always and only about himself even when his comments are explicitly directed at others, it is worth looking more closely at what else Trump had to say over Father’s Day weekend. In a series of tweets, Trump rhetorically projected concerns about his own criminalitycorruptiondeceitfulnessdishonesty, and treasonous behavior onto others. In short, he took considerable time out of his weekend to remind the world that he sees himself as a “national disgrace.” And who am I to argue with the president’s own self-assessment?
As a matter of fact, Trump’s obvious self-loathing goes a long way toward explaining much of his rhetoric. For instance, Trump is famously concerned with ratings. One of his favorite putdowns of a media outlet is that it is failing, has poor circulation numbers, or weak ratings. Trump’s obsession with ratings transparently reflects anxiety over his own poor polling numbers. He repeatedly reminds us how beloved he is precisely because he feels unloved. In the words of one famous Twitter user, “Sad!”
Similarly, prior to being elected president, Trump’s primary foray into politics was as a sort self-appointed leader and spokesperson for the birther movement. Aside from the obvious racist aspect of birther rhetoric, why was Trump so obsessed with convincing his fellow Americans that Barak Obama was “illegitimate”?
Trump desperately needed people to see Obama as an imposter, as someone unworthy of his success. In keeping with his personality, Trump was simply rhetorically projecting his own deep feelings of unworthiness, his own sense of being a fake. And where have we heard this term “fake” before? It is, of course, Trump’s favorite putdown of the mainstream news media.
In fact, in his first 878 days as president, Donald Trump has tweeted about fake news 468 times (more than once every other day … can you say, “projection”?). What this rhetoric reveals about Trump is far more significant than anything it says about the actual news media or even its coverage of him. It reveals that Trump regards himself as a fake, a phony, and an imposter. More recently Trump has taken to referring to the media as “corrupt,” which also suggests a great deal about Trump’s shifting opinion of himself.

If ever there was an argument for impeachment, it is that no one knows Donald Trump better than Donald Trump. Listen carefully to what he believes about himself based on his repeated criticisms of others.
