💥Trump allegedly conspires with the Russians to fix the 2016 election.

➡️That's the crime.

⚡️Then he accuses Obama of not doing anything about the crime he committed (allegedly) in the last 2 mos of Obama's presidency?

🤪If it sounds insane, it is.
➡️Answer: Because the Obama administration was investigating. And the Mueller team is still investigating.

😬Gird your loins.
💥This, from someone [Trump] who once sued a comedian [Bill Maher] for $5 million for intimating that his ancestry might include an orangutan.

ℹ️He initiated the lawsuit in February 2013 and dropped it in April 2013.

THREAD: 6 months ago today I released the Senate Foreign Relations Committee's #RussiaReport documenting the strategies Vladimir Putin has used to undermine democracy, human rights and the rule of law in Russia and Europe for the past 20 years.
Because to prevent what he did in our 2016 election from happening again, we need to understand Putin's patterns and methods. The Kremlin uses an arsenal of tools to destabilize democracies and sow chaos: cyber attacks, propaganda, coups, corruption, assassinations and more.
Putin has increasingly crossed the line of acceptable behavior – and we need a @POTUS who is resolute on American values, our transatlantic alliances and international norms to stand up to him. #RussiaReport

When this #RussiaGate #FakeNews tweet had ~2,000 RT’s, I counted the individual RT’ers. There were only 95. The rest were “hidden” protected accounts… the type #astroturf’ers use to inflate their RT stats. The @GMFUS is likely manipulating public sentiment on the #RussiaReport.
… to underscore this: less than 5% of the people RT’ing this #RussiaReport tweet are likely real. The Alliance for Securing Democracy (@SecureDemocracy) is housed at/funded by the @GMFUS. They created the neo-McCarthyist “#Hamilton68” secret watchlist & are very involved online.
… look closely at the backdrop behind @SenatorCardin as he rolled out this #RussiaReport this AM (convenient counter-programming to @JustinAmash’s bipartisan, bicameral #FISA reform press conference, I might add). #Astroturfing courtesy of the German Marshall [Slush] Fund.

Today I'm releasing a #RussiaReport documenting Vladimir Putin's 20-year attack on democratic institutions in his own country and Europe. To protect against what the Kremlin did to the U.S. in 2016, we need to first understand Putin's pattern. foreign.senate.gov/press/ranking/…
Russia's attack on the U.S., while still being fully investigated, was not limited to email hacks or one election. The scale and scope of this threat is real, it is growing, and if left unchecked, it will happen again in 2018 and 2020. #RussiaReport
This is the 1st U.S. government #RussiaReport to detail exactly how Putin operates, from a toolbox that includes military invasions, cyberattacks, disinformation, supporting fringe political groups, and weaponizing energy, crime & corruption. Summary here: foreign.senate.gov/download/chapt…
