Let's just bring us up to date on @StormyDaniels and the #TrumpClownShow

1/ Trump doesn't sue.......because he's afraid IMO of discovery

President Trump has agreed to give up his right to pursue millions of dollars in damages against Stormy Daniels in a move to kill litigation over an illegal payoff to the adult-film star.
2/ Huge reversal for #TrumpClown

His legal team sought earlier to pull Daniels into an arbitration that could have forced her to pay the president more than $20 million

Last thing I'm going to say on this:
Consider that by pointing this out, we are holding MSM press to their own standards. Which is so critical in helping to shore up our free press, which is under a direct assault by a hostile foreign state & the White House.
Here's why... /1
2/ There are time/date stamps on what we put out. This is easily discovered via basic Twitter searches. To everyone. And we have considerable followings now. So, folks know - or can easily discover - where & when certain stories first broke. It looks REALLY BAD at this point...
3/ To NOT give credit - or at least acknowledge that there was prior information "out there" in the public domain. Good Lord.
No one who has been committing the time/energy to research, analyze, & then publicly share findings is doing it 4 fame (well, ok. maybe @ScottMStedman).

I ❤ history that's also just really #GoodJournalism.

March 2017: Rep Collins owns approximately $22 million worth of Innate stock, or 16.5% of the company & sits on its board.

thedailybeast.com/congressman-bo…
Four other @GOP congressmen also bought into Innate in 2016: Mike Conaway of Texas, Doug Lamborn of Colorado, Billy Long of Missouri, and Markwayne Mullin of Oklahoma purchased as much as $356,000 in Innate shares combined.
Since the IPO, Collins’s children, his chief of staff, and a score of campaign donors have bought into Innate, whose stock price has tripled since its initial offering in 2013.

First of all, hey @CNN: 🎶what a difference 367 days make, and the difference is....stark!🎶

I mentioned an Omega, yes?

ARE YOU READY FOR MY ROY COHN THEORY OF AGENT RECRUITMENT, TWITTER?
Roy Cohn fucked younger men, using himself as kompromat bait. Once he fucked 'em (with video proof), he owned 'em. Then, he used em.
I *speculate* that Roger Stone was one of Roy Cohn's first, and definitely his most successful recruits.
Roger Stone would then go on to be involved with the College Republicans.

FYI KBR used to be a subsidiary of Halliburton.
And it does a ton of work for the US military.
AND they cheated the US out of a ton of money by employing their employees via shell co's in tax havens.
Receipts!
Nice work if you can get it- profiting off military contracts while not contributing to Medicare or Social Security. Paul Ryan's wet dream!
