This is horrifying. Our elections in 2020 are in greater danger than they already have been.

I'm at a loss for words.
#FTR: A little over a week ago, Coats appointed a dedicated Elections Threats Intelligence Executive.

I fear his quick push out the door was either a result of that decision...or...Coats quickly announced the new role b/c he saw the writing on the wall.

#FLAG: In his resignation letter, DNI Coats noted his appointment of an Elections Security Executive "to support a whole-of-government effort to address threats against our elections.”

His efforts to secure our elections clearly appear to be connected with his expedited removal.

#WATCH: Mueller warns...Russia continues to attack our elections "AS WE SIT HERE."

Q: "Did you think that this was a single attempt...or did you find evidence to suggest [Russia will] try to do this again?"

MUELLER: "It wasn't a single attempt. They're doing it as we sit here."
#FLAG: Mueller fears that accepting #ElectionInterference is the "new normal."

Q: "Have we established...[that any candidate] aware of a hostile foreign power trying to influence an election has no duty to report?"

MUELLER: "I hope this is not the new normal, but I fear it is."
#REDFLAG: The NRCC, the committee to elect Republicans in the House, REFUSED to pledge not to accept/use hacked materials in 2020.

It wasn't a part of ANY coverage today, despite Mueller's warnings about #ElectionInterference and fear of the "new normal."

#REDFLAG: After a setback in the Supreme Court, Trump asks his lawyers if he can DELAY THE CENSUS

The census is constitutionally-mandated to begin in April 2020, under Article I, Section 2.

Trump is asking if he can IGNORE the Constitution b/c he doesn't like a SCOTUS decision.
#RELATED: The Supreme Court ruled against the Trump Administration's proposal to add a citizenship question to the 2020 Census...for now.

It would've led to a severe undercount, which would've rigged elections and resources in favor of white Republicans.
#HUGEWIN: The Trump Administration will begin printing the 2020 Census WITHOUT the citizenship question.

After missing their deadline, some feared Trump may actually try to defy the Constitution and the law.

This is an incredible victory for democracy!

#BREAKING: MUELLER WILL TESTIFY to BOTH the House Judiciary Committee and the House Intelligence Committee in OPEN session on Wednesday, July 17, 2019.

Chairman @RepJerryNadler and Chairman @RepAdamSchiff SUBPOENAED Mueller for his testimony, following weeks of negotiations.
@RepJerryNadler @RepAdamSchiff #FLAG: Before you pile on Mueller for requiring a subpoena...

By appearing via subpoena and not "voluntarily," Mueller will appear unbiased and will be able to maintain his nonpartisan credibility.

It's preferable to him seeming to be eager to testify against Trump.

Well done!
@RepJerryNadler @RepAdamSchiff #PS: Not to be a Debbie Downer...but I REALLY hope Trump doesn't start a war with Iran to distract us from Mueller's testimony.

It's crazy that I even have to consider that as a possibility, but let's be real. It's plausible. As Trump goes down, he'll grow more & more desperate.

#FTR: Sheryl Gay Stolberg is HELL-BENT on taking Biden down.

I don't really understand why. But even if any of her "reporting" presents some valid points, we must keep her clear bias in mind.

Unfortunately, the @NYTimes bills her as a correspondent...not an opinion columnist...
@nytimes #FLAG: Oh, and for the record, I don't criticize journalists easily. Feel free to search my Twitter history.

In the meantime, remember some of Sheryl's recent reporting on Biden...and it's timing...
@nytimes #FTR: I've said it before, I'll say it again...I do NOT have a favored primary candidate yet.

I just won't stand for the primaries to be influenced by biased reporting...or for the nominee to emerge damaged, based on "scandals" that were blown out of proportion.

#FLAG: I've heard some people I respect — including @MatthewMiller and @FrankFigliuzzi1 — suggest that Nadler should cancel Barr's scheduled hearing before his committee on May 2nd,

The argument is that he's not worth hearing from anymore.

I disagree. Here a few reasons why...
1. The impending hearing puts pressure on Barr, as Dems subpoena the evidence + unredacted report.

Every statement/appearance has been a disaster for him, even causing Mueller's team to speak out. IMO, it all ultimately forced him to release a less redacted report than expected.
2. There are important questions left to ask:

- Will the 12 referred investigations go on unimpeded?

- Why did he overrule/lie about Mueller's intention to leave obstruction to Congress?

- Outstanding Wikileaks questions.

- Has he assembled a team to investigate the #Oranges?

#REDFLAG: In Feb, after Trump was forced to reopen the government for 3 weeks, following the 35 day #TrumpShutdown...

...a bipartisan committee hashed out an immigration funding compromise to avoid another one.

But...WHERE. DID. THE. MONEY. GO?

[THREAD]
nytimes.com/2019/02/14/us/…
#ATTN: The bipartisan deal included:

🔹 $1.375B — 55 miles of New Fencing.
🔹 $524.2M — Ports of Entry + 600 New Border Agents.
🔹 $415M — Humanitarian Aid at Border.

AND...

🔹 $563.4M — for Immigration Courts, (incl. $59M for) 75 NEW JUDGES.
🔹 $527M — Aid to Central America.
#FLAG: Congress JUST passed funding for 75 new Immigration Judges, largely to hear asylum claims.

Today, AG Bill Barr boasted about DOJ's progress...PRIOR to this year.

Yet, he's requesting $72M to hire 100 new judges in FY2020.

But...WHERE DID THE MONEY GO FROM THE LAST DEAL?

#FLAG: I'm convinced, Rick Gates is a critical witness to #Collusion/Conspiracy.

He was involved in handing over Trump campaign polling data to Konstantin Kilimnik, along w/ Manafort.

But late in the campaign when data would be most critical, Manafort wasn't around.

Gates was.
#FLAG: Not to mention, Gates worked on the Inauguration.

We know foreign money — specifically from a pro-Russia Ukrainian oligarch — made its way into the huge inaugural fund...that was admitted to in a guilty plea by Sam Patten.

I bet Gates knows more.
#MORE: Here's more on Gates also working with Manafort to share Trump Campaign polling data with Konstantin Kilimnik, who has ties to Russian Intelligence.

This received remarkably less press than it should have...as usual when it comes to Gates coverage.

#REDALERT: Treasury Dept. to LIFT SANCTIONS on Oleg Deripaska's companies.

Treasury's OFAC has notified Congress it intends to terminate sanctions on Deripaska's companies — the oligarch close to Putin w/ ties to Manafort and the Mueller Investigation.

#REDFLAG: As predicted earlier in this thread...

Deripaska's companies only qualified for sanctions relief assessment BECAUSE Deripaska "stepped down."

But OBVIOUSLY Deripaska installed board members that reported directly to him.

So why lift sanctions?
#FLAG: The answer to that question is Treasury is being WILLFULLY IGNORANT.

They've directed Deripaska's companies to "undertake significant
restructuring and corporate governance," determine why the moles were installed, and reduce his influence.

LOL.

#FTR: Nixon WH Counsel, John Dean, is pretty much universally considered a hero in the Watergate scandal.

While he wasn't an angel, his cooperation ultimately led to Nixon's impeachment and resignation.

Hmm, I wonder why Trump would call him a "RAT" and view him negatively...?
#FLAG: Trump invokes McCarthyism, while hurling unfounded accusations at Democrats and the Special Counsel.

He claims he demands transparency, while his White House lies at every turn.

When he says "many lives have been ruined," he's setting up pardons.
#FLAG: Trump and the Right Wing often say "No Collusion...except by Crooked Hillary and the Democrats."

It's a repeated counter-narrative about the FusionGPS commissioned #SteeleDossier, claiming it's collusion.

It's been debunked. But truth isn't truth.

#BREAKING: THE WHITE HOUSE COUNSEL, DON MCGAHN, HAS COOPERATED EXTENSIVELY W/ MUELLER'S OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE INVESTIGATION.

He has detailed the most damning episodes in at least 3 voluntary interviews that have totaled 30 hours over the past 9 months.
nytimes.com/2018/08/18/us/…
#FLAG: McGahn has disclosed details surrounding...

- The firing of former FBI Director James Comey.
- Trump's obsession with putting a loyalist in charge.
- Trump's repeated urging of Sessions to claim oversight of the investigation.
- Trump's attempts to fire Mueller himself.
#FLAG: MCGAHN AND HIS LAWYER COOPERATED...BECAUSE THEY THOUGHT TRUMP WAS GOING TO SET HIM UP AS "THE FALL GUY."

They were suspicious when Trump didn't protest letting him be interviewed...

So McGahn cooperated extensively to cover to demonstrate that McGahn did nothing wrong.

#FLAG: I don't want to read too far into it, but for the jury in the Manafort trial to be asking for the definition of "reasonable doubt," after one day of deliberation, is concerning, at least for me...
#TBH: I hate to say this, but I've been skeptical of this jury from the beginning.

How are there 12 individuals in the Alexandria, Virginia area (just outside of D.C.) who had never heard of Paul Manafort?

Either they are particularly ignorant individuals, or someone's lying...
#FTR: If Justice is not served at the conclusion of this trial...

No one is more to blame than Judge Ellis.

Meanwhile, JOINT MILITARY EXERCISES with our allies in South Korea were "too expensive."

They act as a deterrent to North Korea, China and Russia, and are essential to ensure preparedness with our allies should Kim Jong Un launch an attack.

They would cost $14M...
#REMINDER: The Trump Administration's position on the suspension of joint military exercises with South Korea was CONDITIONAL.

The annual August exercises were suspended...AS LONG AS North Korea acted in "GOOD FAITH" in working towards denuclearization.
washingtonpost.com/news/monkey-ca…
#FLAG: U.S. Officials, from the Military Intelligence Agency in the Pentagon to the Secretary of State, have ACKNOWLEDGED...

North Korea is ACCELERATING their nuclear program, continuing missiles production, and hiding assets from the U.S..

Good faith?

#TRUTHBOMB: You've heard it a million times.

"There was No Collusion except with the Democrats and Russia!"

It's an often-repeated right-wing counter-narrative pointing to the FusionGPS commissioned #SteeleDossier.

Here's why they're full of it and how to counter it.

[THREAD]
#FLAG: Trump defenders say if it's illegal to get "opposition research" from a foreign national...

...then the Democrats are guilty of it, because they commissioned Christopher Steele, a former British spy and UK national, to gather intel that became the #SteeleDossier.

[2/7]
#FLAG: Let's look at the specific law...

52 USC 30121 - It's illegal to solicit, accept, or receive a contribution (opposition research) or donation of money or other thing of value from a foreign national in connection with an election.

But the fact is. STEELE WAS PAID.

#BREAKING: JEFF SESSIONS FIRES FMR. DEPUTY FBI DIRECTOR MCCABE...LESS THAN 48 HOURS BEFORE HIS RETIREMENT.

He'll likely lose his pension. His retirement was set for Sunday, McCabe's 50th Birthday.

McCabe was the target of the RW Media and Trump himself.
nytimes.com/2018/03/16/us/…
AFTER 22 YEARS OF SERVICE.

#FLAG: MCCABE SPEAKS OUT!

McCabe declares that his firing, and Trump’s persistent needling, were intended to undermine the special counsel’s investigation.

“The idea that I was dishonest is just wrong," he said, adding, "THIS IS PART OF AN EFFORT TO DISCREDIT ME AS A WITNESS."

I can't with this guy...but interestingly, he's also revealing a lot with each one of these interviews.

Why not just go speak to the Grand Jury? Clearly, it's not about avoiding spending more time talking about the investigation and your experience...

He can't help himself..
#NOW: SAM NUNBERG says he was told he wasn't a target or a subject of the investigation and he was OFFERED IMMUNITY by the Special Counsel's team.

He also said THEY WANT HIM TO TESTIFY...TO CATCH ROGER STONE ON PERJURY...

ADMITTING THAT ROGER MAY HAVE LIED TO PROSECUTORS.
#LOL: Save this one...

SAM NUNBERG: "I'M NOT GOING TO JAIL, COME ON."

#BREAKING: TRUMP ORDERED MUELLER FIRED BACK IN JUNE, BUT BACKED OFF WHEN THE WHITE HOUSE COUNSEL THREATENED TO QUIT.

#BREAKING: TRUMP ARGUED MUELLER HAD CONFLICTS OF INTEREST, SO HE COULDN'T BE IMPARTIAL....

"Treat him fairly" are the words I'm assuming he used...
