So, I was doing some research for something (I thought was unrelated 📌)and came across this...You guys remember Don McGahn right? White House Counsel for trump during the period he tried to have Attorney General Sessions fired for recusing during the Mueller investigation? 🧵👇🏻
This is a 2016 Forbes article wherein they question Don McGahn’s appointment as White House counsel. At the time they were worried about conflicts of interest. They used the word ‘consigliere’. 🐴🤔…
Well here is not necessarily a conflict of interest so much as a pattern of ‘keeping it in the family’. DYK that the uncle of former WH Counsel Don McGahn was Patrick McGahn and he was trump’s lawyer in 1992 during an investigation by the NJ Division of Gaming Enforcement?

I was in a small crowd of commuters that watched the first twin tower collapse from the ferry landing in Weehawken, NJ with my 3-week-old in my arms. My mom and I were still trying to get to NYC for a pediatrician appointment when the ferry returned & the ferry staffer yelled (1)
"Go home, people! The subways are closed. Why are you trying to go to work? Go home!" Then we watched the tower collapse. It was all so surreal and incomprehensible on that sunny, gorgeous day, the beginning of so much grief and sadness for many months to come. Yet, today (2)
we are seeing the equivalent number of untimely deaths from COVID every 2-3 days in our country, as if the twin towers were collapsing every other day as Trump spends all his time golfing, watching Fox News & having rallies that are superspreader events. Why aren't we all (3)

The Stone commutation is invalid & improper. It violates the spirit of the Constitution (even if not the letter of the Constitution). I contend it’s the product of a criminal conspiracy & constitutes obstruction of justice (& a perversion of justice). But here’s the tough part -
How can it be challenged? And by whom? To challenge something in court, you need “standing.” This means you must be personally/directly impacted by the act, in this case, the Stone sentence commutation. Let’s set aside the obvious argument that ALL AMERICANS are affected -
by the Stone criminal commutation because Stone and Trump successfully and nefariously hid from the American people evidence of a president’s criminal conduct resulting in his (invalid) election. Yes, that damages/injures every American and harms the nation. So, we -

Pass it on.

Republican Senators who acquitted #TraitorTrump in February are going to go through some things.

Who does #MoscowMitch work for, America or Putin?

So Trump signed off on Russian murders of American soldiers, Chinese concentration camps, extorting Ukraine, betraying Kurds, selling nuclear secrets to Saudis, putting kids in cages, tear gassing U.S. citizens, and politicizing masks during the #COVID19 pandemic? Anything else??

Did President* Trump beg China to help him win in 2020?

And why DOES he keep hiring people he says are wackos or liars?

Daily we ask ourselves these questions: can Barr be charged for ordering attacks on protestors; can Trump be charged for his reckless/incompetent/intentional mishandling of the COVID crisis resulting in needless/preventable deaths; can Trump administration officials be charged
with crimes for putting kids in cages? As a result of Trump’s unchecked crimes and abuses there are hundreds of other “can they be charged” questions. There is only one fair and accurate way to answer these questions (even if the answer is, at this moment in time, unsatisfying).
The answer is this: if, after a full, fair, nonpartisan criminal investigation there is enough evedince to support criminal charges then the answer is “yes.” The way we handle these criminal investigations beginning in January will go a long way to restoring

370/"Power...ebb[ing from US;]alarm bells" in DC. Well if US (hypothetically) had RU plant in WH saying inject bleach, strategically bad if power didn't shift to allies!?! "warning [for] Democrats: [must win]." They're onboard; tell GOP's corp donors.
371/If accept this than whole discussion of int'l law 357/ this thread (&Syria precedent that repeated vetos of non-member state to @IntlCrimCourt can now be tried in Germany/France) would be relevant in event of Trump victory. (& now already to dissuade.)
372/CON'T Case must be made that this is incompetent&foolish. Above tweet is what would happen in Trump victory w/ continued DOJ weirdness. More immediately, the 101 likely displeased at such orders& @SpeakerPelosi would defund. Are a Republic to avoid such costly tyranny.

1/ "280 million masks from warehouses around the U.S. had been purchased by foreign buyers and were earmarked to leave the country," thanks to lack of national policy by trump administration.

2/ On top of that, trump sent 18 tons of personal protective equipment (PPE) to China while ignoring warnings and calling COVID-19 concerns a “hoax.”…

Hey All. Can we talk about 1 of the few topics I may actually know too much about: homicide? Specifically, whether Donald Trump may have criminal exposure for some level of negligent homicide or voluntary/involuntary manslaughter for the way he’s mishandled the Coronavirus crisis
I spent 22 of my 30 years as a federal prosecutor handling murder cases in Washington, DC. I served as Chief of the Homicide Section at the DC US Attorney’s Office, overseeing all murder prosecutions in the city. I was always on the lookout for novel ways to apply homicide ...
liability in an attempt to appropriately and ethically hold accountable those who were responsible for taking the life of a fellow human being. I think it’s fair to observe that there’s nothing more devestating to a family then losing a loved one to ether violent crime or to ...

Come Jan. 2021, there will need to be a commission established to investigate & prosecute Trump, his co-conspirators & those who covered-up his crimes (including elected officials who declared Trump committed no crime KNOWING FULL WELL Trump committed crimes against the US ...
See 18 USC sec. 3, Accessory After the Fact. Also, judicial confirmation hearings - Kavanaugh first among them - will need to be investigated for perjury and judges (esp. those rated “unqualified”) referred to DOJ for prosecution and to Congress for impeachment.
No turning the other cheek this time. The critics and ideologies will cry foul, claiming it’s political vindictiveness. But it’s not - it’s holding criminals accountable at the first available opportunity - when our country once again has a law-abiding president ...

So, if the crime at issue is a continuing crime, like a conspiracy, then the statute of limitations doesn’t start to run until the crime is complete. Remember how Trump was making payments to Michael Cohen to pay him back for the porn star coverup? That means the . . .
campaign finance crimes for which Cohen is serving time continued while Trump was president. So the day he leaves office, Trump can & should be charged w/those crimes (& all other crimes sufficiently supported by admissible evidence). When we again have an Attorney General . . .
who enforces the law instead of protecting/covering up for a criminal president, Trump & so many others will have to charged criminally if we are to restore respect for the rule of law and rebuild the legitimacy of our government. #TrumpCrimesCommission #TCC #JusticeIsComing

This is actually a smart move - Mulvaney asking the court if his boss, the president, is wrong by telling him not to testify. Here’s why: in the rapidly approaching post-Trump era, when Barr is gone and a law-abiding attorney general takes his place, prosecutorial decisions
will have to be made about which criminals to charge. Among those who will need to be charged are the people who failed to comply w/congressional subpoenas. Those people must be charged as part of our effort to restore lawfulness to our government, balance among the branches and
respect for our institutions. However, people who opted to seek the court’s assistance in sorting out whether they must testify pursuant to a congressional subpoena or must obey the president who has ordered them not to testify, will have a potential defense to criminal contempt.
