In September 2016, @KellyannePolls told Trump he couldn't get elected if he kept claiming @POTUS44 was born in Kenya--as he had 67x on Twitter over 6yrs. So Trump gave a press conference saying he believed Obama was born in the US, gave no explanation, took no questions.

1/
Trump has since walked that back.

Remember at the Inaugural luncheon where he paid tribute to @HillaryClinton and all she has done for America and asked those in attendance to applaud her?

Trump soon walked that back as well & has directed his DOJ to investigate her again.
2/
Everyone knows Trump lies, that he has always lied and that he believes his own lies.

Trump lied repeatedly at the #HelsinkiSummit presser. He also told his truth--that Russia didn't attack our 2016 election.There is videotape of the live broadcast which the whole world saw.

This is what #CollusionGate looks like it’s documented in the library of Congress that @BillClinton and Yeltsin helped each other win re-election. If only @realDonaldTrump were a Democrat he and Putin could call out #fakenews and everyone would laugh and clap #TrumpPutin
Maybe Trump should’ve used this zinger from Clinton when everyone asked why he wasn’t more harsh on Putin🙄
You remember don’t you @TIME you did an extensive story about America meddling in the Russian election, guess #ClintonYeltsin is sexier than #TrumpPutin whole story here👇

1) #QAnon #SaveTheKids

I have been Twitter-silent of late, waiting for the next shoe to drop…and there are a closet full of shoes. It was a needed break as it has been a struggle watching the cabal continue to walk the streets.
2) The breathless screams about yesterday's #TreasonSummit warrant an immediate reply. The best place to start is to ask WHY? Why are the political left and the #MSM/#LSM claiming the Trump-Putin meeting to be treasonous? What is the basis?
3) Did you hear concerns of #Treason when #Traitor44 went around the world on his apology tour, disparaging the United States? They PRAISED #Obama for bowing to leaders of foreign nations & ridicule #POTUS for NOT BOWING in submission, as if we are subject to their kingdoms.

Has everyone forgotten that the same “intel community” lied about WMD’s and started a war that’s still going? Comey, Clapper, Brennan, Hayden, Mueller AND MI6 were all there. So YES @realDonaldTrump & anyone else with a brain should be skeptical #Russia
telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews…
Oh look @Comey signed off on illegal programs and torture 🙄
MI6 knew they had bogus intel and said nothing, you know the same MI6 that brought us the #SteeleDossier

#HelsinkiSummit2018 #Russia

I was very proud of the way President Trump handled the joint press conference with President Putin.
The security of America was not undermined by any interference by Russia. It was the political weaponization of our government agencies: IRS, FBI, DOJ, and CIA under Barack Obama's democrat led politicians.

The truth is we have done exactly what we've accused them of doing.
The FBI has never taken word of a private company that a crime was committed, and failed to inspect the scene of the crime. They never even ASKED for the servers, and no I don't believe Crowdstrike. It doesn't matter if the DNC fell for a phishing scam. It isn't an act of war.

#Putin's opening to this press conference suggests the takeover of southern #Syria by Asad/Iran is a model of U.S.-Russia cooperation that should be expanded, and flatters Trump that his summit with Kim [which Putin very much liked the look of] resolved the Korean Peninsula.
On #Ukraine, Putin hints broadly that the U.S. agrees with him that Kyiv's intransigence prevented Minsk's implementation, and then carefully lets it be known Trump brought up the election meddling, an assist to Trump politically, before of course dismissing it.
Trump frames engagement around U.S.-Russian co-operation in WW2, notes that unfortunate Cold War business, then says: "Our relationship has never been worse ... that changed as of about four hours ago." Says he is being politically brave to do what's right. Lambastes media + Dems

This is my THREAD on #HelsinkiSummit where I'll report/analyze all coming & subsequent developements from #Russia's POV:
1. Here's my take on #Putin-#Trump encounter for @ispionline where I argue the summit may have high hopes, but modest expectations
ispionline.it/it/pubblicazio…
2. This is what #Putin heads into #HelsinkiSummit with in terms of #Syria, #Iran: almon.co/32y5
3. #Putin & #Trump will be meet face-to-face around noon (1pm #Moscow time). The leaders have at least 3 hours scheduled for themselves after which they will proceed to another room for working lunch in a broader format with ministers and advisers.

Peak puppet: "I hadn't thought of that"—Trump on whether he'll confront Putin to extradite the indicted Russians. Then blames Obama! Seriously. Trump is always a sheep when it comes to Putin and Russia. He can't even lie well about it. cbsnews.com/news/trump-rus… #HelsinkiSummit
Q: You were very direct at NATO summit. Do you expect same tone w/ #Putin?
Trump: I don't expect anything. Getting along w/ #Russia's a good thing. We're greatly hampered by the rigged Russian WITCH HUNT.

#HelsinkiSummit—ALL Bromance. #BromancingTheEnemy
Music to #Putin's ears & warning lights blinking red: Trump again bashes our biggest ally—EU—as a FOE, the day before #HelsinkiSummit. Asked to identify the biggest foe globally, Trump: "Well, I think we have a lot of foes. The European Union is a foe." cbsnews.com/news/donald-tr…

That is not correct we abstained from disrupting democratic processes, we did however hand the US public information repeatedly on #Trump's illegal activities which any other country would have used appropriately to disqualify him from any election.

We understand the frustration many have with #Anonymous. However given the failure of not only the US mainstream and alternative media, general public, and security apparatuses which are primarily focused on attacking us rather than listening, our assistance is rendered limited.
When you have both the #Russia/n and United States government obstructing and attacking us combined with an apathetic public only interested in celebrity voices; it becomes very difficult to stay operational let alone fight for the democracy of a population of 300 million.

One test of seriousness for Guardian types and others now apparently converted to the reality of Russian subversion: What do they think of Phil Agee?

Many are old enough to have expressed views in real time. Do they now take those back and agree they were fooled?
The psychological barrier to forming a common front with the newly-converted Russia hawks on the Left is the suspicion that they are pressing a political campaign under the banner of national security, and once in office will revert to form.
Remember it's not just the Left's continual delusions about the Soviet Union and their checking out of the last 20+ years of the Cold War. Until the last few months of the Obama administration, working with #Russia was still being posited as a solution to many of the world's ills

Hopefully, the world will know the full truth in the next few weeks - there were hackers all over the world involved in #electiongate, not just #Russia. And #Putin didn’t sanction the hacking, the #Nazis did. Billionaires did. #Rogue Russian military did. Bibi did.
Finally, all truth will be revealed - and as I much as I hate saying this, Donald has told one truth: it wasn’t #Putin. Not after the primaries, that is. This was a massive hacking scandal, involving 1,000+ hackers around the world - some in America, Israel, Russia, Ukraine, UK,
Australia, India, and South America was where most of the hackers were from. Now, what we’re about to see is far greater than what most people believe happened - the tentacles of #electiongate and the crimes prior to it and the subsequent events afterward are far larger and more

.@realDonaldTrump promised an “interesting time” and he certainly delivered. Check out this exclusive report by our @NBCNews colleagues nbcnews.to/2zCAOe2
#NATO Sec Gen @jensstoltenberg said the talks between @realDonaldTrump and other leaders had “made NATO stronger.” But some are still fearful about the President’s gravitation towards Putin’s #Russia.

Here we see Putin's cutout used as evidence against Romney for propaganda purposes, serving Russian interests and damaging America. People were talking about "open collusion" or "public collusion" today. I think we have another suspect.
If we were looking for other instances of public collusion with the Russians:

- Obama promised more "flexibility" to Putin after the election

- Kislyak was taken to browbeat Senators over the Iran deal

- Obama signed a military pact with the Russians to attack Asad's enemies
The point of recalling Obama's record with #Russia is not just whataboutism; it's a call for perspective. To be careful how much of politics is criminalized, and to note that this is being used as a political weapon by people who do not care about national security in any way.

Important article... @ejmalrai ‘s exclusive reveals content of #US message conveyed via #Russia to #Syria.
1-The US will leave #Syria.
2- Let the Kurds continue negotiations with Damascus. 3- The US establishment will recognise Assad’s authority over Syria..
But Iran must leave.
.2/ #Assad’s response:
#US came to #Syria uninvited and it’s presence is illegal.
Syria’s duty is to push it out by all means.
#US shall not obtain by negotiation what it failed to obtain in seven years of war.
.3/ Assad & his allies see a US-French-UK withdrawal as an achievement & their eventual withdrawal a necessity, once Syria is no longer in need of their help.
Assad conveyed to US, Iran not interested in remaining once mission of terminating “terrorist” threat is accomplished.

These indictments could not be clearer. American democracy was the target of a careful, systematic and intentional attack aimed at undermining the bedrock of our democracy: free and open elections without foreign interference
Today’s indictments and Russia’s actions transcend political party and should trouble all Americans and democracies around the world. Russia must be held accountable for their outrageous, unprecedented attacks on our nation
We must bring to bear the full force of U.S. sanctions against #Russia as well as consider their expansion against broader sectors of the Russian economy
