#BREAKING

#MichaelCohen has pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations: hush money payments to #KarenMcDougal and #StormyDaniels.

This is terrible news for Trump.
The allocution will be handed over to Congress and the #MuellerInvestigation.
#BREAKING
To be very clear, #MichaelCohen is now an admitted felon and cited Trump as his co-conspirator.

This could be turned over to Congress as a high crime and misdemeanor.

This is huge.
And what cannot be ignored is that #MichaelCohen served as Deputy Finance Chairman for the #RNC.

And Cohen just pleaded guilty to campaign finance crimes.

This implicates the party. This is no longer just about #MichaelCohen--it's about the #GOP.

The @OMAROSA story today has several important facets, none of them risible.

This is a woman who was in Trump's inner circle and who had his ear.

Prior to him calling her a "low life" on Saturday, Trump lauded her and her work in various tweets and interview comments.
1/
Trump wants you to believe #Omarosa is a liar, but then there is the tape she played on @MeetThePress.

Which is evidentiary.

The #GOP and #RNC are concerned---they started an #OmarosaUnhinged hashtag and are busy tweeting about her, as are Trump's surrogates.

2/
#Omarosa isn't "unhinged." She's vengeful. Is she a liar? About some things, verifiably. About others, verifiably truthful.

That she was able to go all over Trump's White House recording people is a cause for grave concern.

It speaks to Trump's incompetence as a leader.

THREAD: @realDonaldTrump now *admits* that Don Jr sought Clinton dirt at his meeting w/the #Russian🇷🇺”lawyer”/spy & a “former” GRU military intel officer.

It’s a CRIME for a campaign to solicit or receive *anything* from a foreign national, let alone #Russian intelligence.🙄1/
We knew last year that Jr, Manafort & Kush met w/a Kremlin-linked “lawyer,” a “former” #Russian🇷🇺spy w/expertise in acquiring hacked emails, and an alleged Russian money launderer👉🏼they discussed #sanctions, Clinton #kompromat, and #RNC donations.🔥2/

denagrayson.com/2018/05/20/jun…
We also knew last year that Team🇷🇺Trump tried *desperately* to cover up the meeting.

Kushner “forgot” (= #felony) to disclose the meeting *3 separate times* on his SF-86, and Jr & his father, Trump, LIED repeatedly about the meeting.🙄 3/

The USG official leaked Cohen’s financial records b/c the official became “alarmed” after being unable to find 2 suspicious-activity reports on Cohen in a government database & worried the info was being withheld from law enforcement‼️ 1/

Two previous suspicious-activity reports (SARS) documented **even larger flows of questionable money** into Cohen’s account👉🏼>$3 million‼️ Which individuals or corporations remains a mystery.🤨 2/

mcclatchydc.com/news/politics-…
Cohen has vehemently denied for months that he ever has been in Prague or “colluded w/#Russia🇷🇺” during the campaign.🙄

Neither he nor his lawyer would comment for this story.😎 2/
It’s “unclear” if Mueller also has evidence that Cohen met w/the #Russian🇷🇺—purportedly Putin pal Konstantin Kosachev—in Prague.😎

Kosachev, who denied visiting Prague in 2016, was hit w/#sanctions in retaliation for #Russia’s election interference.🤔 3/

🛑BREAKING🛑

Michael Cohen negotiated a deal in late 2017 to pay $1.6 million to a former Playboy model who said she was impregnated by ELLIOTT BROIDY, a top @GOP fundraiser close to Trump who is the former **Deputy Finance Chair of the #RNC‼️

wsj.com/articles/trump…
🔥Broidy: “I had a consensual relationship w/a Playboy Playmate. At the end of our relationship, this woman shared w/me that she was PREGNANT. She alone decided that she did not want to continue with the pregnancy & I offered to help her financially during this difficult period.”
Meaning: Broidy paid for her to have an ABORTION‼️🙄

THREAD: Team🇺🇸Mueller has been questioning witnesses about the 2016 Republican National Convention, including an event attended by both Jeff Sessions & then-#Russian🇷🇺ambassador Kislyak‼️ 1/

Team🇺🇸Mueller also has been asking about is how/why #GOP platform language that was “hostile” to #Russia🇷🇺 was DELETED in the section on Ukraine.🤨

Republicans typically have been HAWKS on Russia, NOT doves, so when this happened, it was a 🚩RED FLAG🚩 2/
Given recent news about Gates👉🏼his testimony is NOT needed to nail Manafort, but instead wanted to nail the rest of Team🇷🇺Trump, plus the sweetheart deals given to PapaD & Flynn, Mueller *clearly* is aiming to nail the BIG FISH‼️🤗 3/

Do NOT be fooled by the "pause" in the (public) action. Mueller has NOT paused‼️

When one person flips, it has a DOMINO effect.🤗

Gates just flipped👉🏼puts MORE pressure on Manafort & could NAIL others who allegedly funneled illegal🇷🇺cash into the GOP‼️

#MuellerIsComing
Last summer, the #RNC ordered its staff to preserve ALL of its records that relate to the 2016 election.🤨

If anyone deleted, destroyed, modified or removed anything👉🏼that's a FELONY‼️

We *know* that Mueller interviewed RNC staffers LAST SUMMER on whether the joint GOP/Trump digital operation coordinated efforts w/#Russian🇷🇺trolls & bots.🤔
