“Though the Ivory Coast government’s conduct during this period was well documented, one detail hasn’t come to light until now: the role of an American political player who was working behind the scenes to assist the embattled West African government.

On December 21, 2010 — just days after Gbagbo refused to step down and executed a brutal crackdown on the opposition — Omri Ceren registered with the Justice Department’s Foreign Agents Registration Unit in order to work on behalf of the Gbagbo regime regarding the Ivory Coast conflict.

Ceren, at the time a registered lobbyist and VP of the strategic communications firm Davis-Block LLC, today serves as national security adviser to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). Ceren was hired for the job in late April, according to a press release issued by Cruz’s office.

According to the 2010 Justice Department documents signed by Ceren, he was to “render services” to the “Government of Cote d’lvoire” in relation to ‘the current conflict over the November 28, 2010 elections.'”

The Young Turks is named after a group that committed a genocide. Them calling someone out for working for a mass murderer is ironic considering they are named after a group that murdered over a million people.

Jimbo Bojim · October 12, 2018 at 3:35 am

He must of worked for the Obama administration.

Guy Bouaka · October 12, 2018 at 3:35 am

TYT, the story about Laurant Gbagbo is absolutely NOT true. Everything they said about Gbagbo is false.
We are always heart broken when you said thing like that.

Check with the US ambassador who was at the post during that time and he knows the truth.

Why don't you send someone under cover to Cote d Ivoire to investigate yourself?
Who lied to you about this?

Gbagbo was defending his people and the west did not like that. They wanted someone who can allow them to exploit the country.

No tactic is too low for the Rape and Con Party.

Jimmy Swenson · October 12, 2018 at 3:37 am

Ted Cruz still sounds somehow worse than this murderer dude

Jimbo Bojim · October 12, 2018 at 3:37 am

He was a Hillary adviser?

Blake Burch · October 12, 2018 at 3:39 am

Yeah thats tautology. The advisor for the Zodiac Killer worked for a mass murderer lmao

jai pennycuick · October 12, 2018 at 3:49 am

That’s a bit rich coming from tyt because they took money off Qatar and we all know how nice they are but I guess because they are Muslims that’s fine

Blockchain Gael · October 12, 2018 at 3:51 am

This summer… @ band camp… our investigative team.

sun dial · October 12, 2018 at 3:51 am

If the murderer was killing Liberals than its NO problem 😄

japrogramer · October 12, 2018 at 3:54 am

Zodiac killer is Ted Cruz

Hassaan Ahmed · October 12, 2018 at 3:54 am

No wonder Unites States and Israel wants to destroy International Criminal Court, just because if any of their heads of government are caught one day (if justice ever prevail) half of "think tanks & lobbyists" in United States will be guilty of carrying out the same criminal act….. C'mon Cenk you can do batter than that.

Kenneth Esau Point · October 12, 2018 at 3:57 am

So does that make Eddie Munster gangster? Lol

Seta-San · October 12, 2018 at 4:09 am

So, someone who isn't Ted Cruz once worked for a psycho…

hoison68 · October 12, 2018 at 4:10 am

This is an underhanded attempt to get you to vote for Beto, their golden boy. This fat pos is so transparent!!!

Matthew Hopkins · October 12, 2018 at 4:10 am

Cenk Uygur hired a sexual assaulter as a reporter.
I mean if we're going to play the guilt by association game why not start there?

Alan Cooper · October 12, 2018 at 4:16 am

Ted Cruz really is then the Zodiac killer?

JC//DC · October 12, 2018 at 4:37 am

Lanny J. Davis: The right man for lawyers who desperately need a lawyer.

Michael 마익흘 Aronson · October 12, 2018 at 4:43 am

Zodiac Killer confirmed.

T Biz · October 12, 2018 at 4:44 am


Dan Cooke · October 12, 2018 at 4:46 am

Lanny Davis come up through Democratic politics working for Ed Muskie back in 1972 and ran for Congress himself as a Democrat in Maryland in the 70's. He's known Hillary since law school and been the so-called Democratic representative on boards or commissions so they can say they're bipartisan.

Collette Foote · October 12, 2018 at 4:49 am

Lanny Davis! Oh, the life of a defense attorney! This reminds me of that old ABC series, “The Practice.”

Rich Cook · October 12, 2018 at 4:53 am

Guilt by association? This is misguided.

Gary Mota · October 12, 2018 at 5:07 am

Ted Cruz has a small penis 😍

Mlpfanboy · October 12, 2018 at 5:10 am

Why dose this not surprise me.

Hildebrandt Zhor · October 12, 2018 at 5:18 am

Cruz's father worked for a mass murderer, too.

Nate Hoffman · October 12, 2018 at 5:18 am

Maybe Trump wasn't bullshitting about Cruz's father. LOL!!!!

jeck jeck · October 12, 2018 at 5:19 am

Is ANYONE surprised by this? It's Ted Cruz.

sympthylost · October 12, 2018 at 5:27 am

I'm just here for Zodiac Killer jokes.

God's Anointed. · October 12, 2018 at 5:28 am

Just a reminder to the fakes and haters out there. I am the greatest man to walk the earth.

Jay T · October 12, 2018 at 5:36 am

Zodiac killer confirmed?🤔

Michael Coville · October 12, 2018 at 5:43 am

Ted Cruz only hires the best people. He learned how to do that from Trump.

TheKoolAidMaker · October 12, 2018 at 5:55 am

What kind of advice is Ted going to receive when these republicans don’t want to give up their power
