More That You Didn't See

You have to wonder why it is that certain celebrities get free published puff-pieces that seek to explain their odd behavior in ways that make them seem like really great people.

I mean, how do you get that gig?

Take George Clooney's generous gift of $14 million to his 14 best friends.

What kind of horrible person might question such an act of generosity?

Certainly, such kindness couldn't in fact be payment as hush money, amirite?

Of course not. That would be absurd.

Anyway, free advertising is awesome. Especially if you have celebrity friends like Tom Arnold helping you out.

You remember ol' Tom. He's Felix Sater's buddy. You remember Felix. He's the guy whose dad, Mikhail Preferovsky, was a lieutenant for Semion Mogilevich, the head of the Solntsevskaya Bratva (Russian mob). You might recall that Preferovsky was involved in trying to traffic nuclear materials to al Qaeda for the Russian mob. Nice to have friends.

Now this may seem like an incredible coincidence, but did you know that Jeffrey Katzenberg's political advisor, Andy Spahn, sits on the board of "March for our lives"...?

You might recall George and Amal's generous donation...

Bear with me for a second...

What if it were possible to set up charities and foundations as opaque conduits for, I don't know, laundering money, paying protection money, etc...?

Crazy, I know.

Anyway, I'm really fascinated with Amal Clooney's client list.

There was, of course, Julian Assange. But there was also Yulia Tymoshenko.

Interesting take on Tymoshenko here, from Russia expert Edward Lucas...

Another interesting client of Amal's is Mohamed Fahmy.

He's the guy who met with Ayman al-Zawahiri and lived to tell about it.

Zawahiri is the al Qaeda guy who was arrested by Russia in 1994, sentenced to 6 months in prison, then let go after 1, because they "didn't know who he was"...?

He had a Sudanese passport and a Taiwanese visa application.

Thing the time, Russia didn't have diplomatic relations with Taiwan. It's laughable to think that Russia's border service wouldn't have flagged this.

In the real world, we would call this a Russian intelligence failure.

Egyptian President Sisi let Fahmy go, didn't he?

Why it's almost as though, but couldn't be...

Stay tuned folks, there are more dots to connect...
