“We’re not negotiating with Canada right now,”
Mr. Trump said at a cabinet meeting on Thursday.

“Their tariffs are too high; their barriers are too strong.
So we’re not even talking to Canada them right now.”

I normally hate this #TrumpRussia infighting bs, because I feel like #TheResistance should be more united, and I know I’m going to lose this battle - but I think we would all be better off if we blocked Avenetti and stopped pretending he is a legitimate presidential candidate.
I agree with him that the Dems should stop playing nice, and I think he is doing some good things, but he’s trying to promote infighting and for that, we should #UnfollowAvenetti
Hell, @SethAbramson annoys the shit out of me but I’m not calling for people to boycott him because he does help the cause. Avenetti just seems like a glory hog.

WH counsel Don McGahn has "cooperated extensively" w/Mueller, sharing "detailed accounts" of episodes at the heart of the #ObstructionOfJustice inquiry into @realDonaldTrump, including info that investigators would not have known otherwise.🔥 1/

nytimes.com/2018/08/18/us/…
🔥WHOA🔥

In **at least 3 voluntary interviews that totaled 30 hours** over the past 9 months, McGahn described Trump's furor about the #TrumpRussia probe & how Trump urged him to respond, providing a clear view of Trump's most intimate moments with his lawyer.😎 2/

#Busted
McGahn shared details on @Comey's firing & Trump’s obsession w/putting a "loyalist" in charge of the #TrumpRussia probe (e.g., Sessions). McGahn was also centrally involved in Trump’s attempts to fire Mueller, which investigators might not have discovered w/o McGahn.🔥 3/

Does everyone now understand the Magnitski act? If you don’t YOU SHOULD!. I wrote you some cliff notes: The Magnitski Act is the ENTIRE reason we have donald trump as President and why Russia is “meddling” in our elections.

Thread ...
Remember these two names: Sergei Magnitski and Bill Browder. Sergei Magnistski was a tax accountant in Russia, Bill Browder is an investment fund manager for US based Hermitage Capital.
In 2009 Sergei Magnitski was Bill Browder’s tax accountant while Bill was working in Russia. Sergei Magnitski was jailed and then -> murdered <- in Moscow by Vladimir Putin’s FSB (Federal Security Service) while Sergei was investigating a $230 Million fraud involving Russian

1.) Even before the wake of the revocation of Ex-CIA Director #JohnBrennan's Security Clearance, he has been very vocal against @realDonaldTrump. He seems to be in Full Panic Mode & concerned.
He should be!! 👇🏼
theguardian.com/uk-news/2017/a…
2.) According to @guardian news, GCHQ became aware as far back as late 2015 in regards to suspicious interactions between Trump associates & known or suspected Russian agents. As we have come to find out, 5 Eyes was involved in collecting this information.
3.) These 'alleged' conversations were picked up 'By Chance' 🙄 as part of routine Surveillance of Russian Intelligence assets.
My 1st question is: Who are these Russian assets? Who was working with GCHQ or the FBI & had ties to the Trump team? I think we know who 1 of them is.

1. Not gonna lie; I'm surprised that World Magazine, an evangelical publication, would release such a withering expose of Liberty University's authoritarian crackdown on the college newspaper. But this is a must read:

2. Heavy-handed control over college newspapers--essentially rendering them propaganda outlets--is one common tactic used when evangelical colleges crack down to impose orthodoxy, a frequent pattern. Here's an investigative piece I did on these crackdowns

3. I interviewed David Wheeler (@WheelerWorkshop), who was faculty adviser for the student paper at Asbury University, and one of his former students for the article linked above. Asbury refused to print the student's article making a Christian case for legal same-sex marriage.

💥BOOM💥This totally explains why Trump pulled @JohnBrennan Security Clearance: @RudyGiuliani said yesterday that Brennan was the quarterback behind the #TrumpRussia investigation and should face a grand jury. newsweek.com/giuliani-brenn…
🙄Giuliani says that Brennan was the “quarterback” and Mueller and Strzok are ‘puppets’. Rudy accuses Brennan of peddling false affidavits conjured up by Strzok...
🙄OMG... #LoonyRudy could be QAnon with all these insane conspiracy theories... Giuliani says EVERYTHING about #TrumpRussia investigation is “phony”

Thread: The evolution of my foreign policy beliefs. When I was younger, my political beliefs were pretty messed up. My parents were divorced and my parents were on the opposite side of spectrum.
2: a few weeks after I started college, I bought into the “Muslims are scary” mantra for a little bit, but the build up to Iraq turned me into a peacenik.
3: Note: I now believe organized religion itself is a huge tool used for evil.

As a Trump supporter, I didn't want to believe that our President was #PutinsPuppet , but I finally decided to look at the evidence, and I must say that what I found was ... concerning.

Please read with an open mind and think for yourself, that's all I ask.

The first thing I noticed that concerned me was the airstrikes Trump ordered on Shayrat airbase, in Syria, in April, 2017.

Bashar Al Assad is an ally of Putin, so this was obviously done under direct orders from Putin.

The next thing I noticed was that NATO was expanding, with Trump's permisson and approval.

NATO is basically Russia's biggest headache, so expanding the alliance was obviously a huge benefit to Putin. #Collusion

#Maddow Scoop: GOP congressman Devin Nunes (Top Trump propagandist on House Intel Cmte undermining Russia probe) was overheard at a GOP fundraiser criticizing Trump tweets as “cringe” worthy. He also acknowledges using stolen emails in a campaign is “criminal.” #TrumpRussia
#Maddow Nunes: “If Sessions won’t unrecuse and Mueller won’t clear the president, we’re the only ones.” GOP leadership is secretly on board with Rosenstein impeachment. But don’t won’t divert Senate from Kavanaugh confirmation. So GOP plan to do it after he’s confirmed. #VOTEBLUE
#Maddow's scoop is damning for Nunes, showing his corruption & abuse of power for Trump. But Paul Ryan is House speaker, and he's known about all of it. He's been on board since at least his "don't leak"; keep it in the "family." GOP family is more mob-like than we ever imagined.

💥BREAKING💥 OMG @DevinNunes is SCREWED - Audio of Nunes at fundraiser for Rep. Kathy McMorris Rogers and talks about Trump‼️He says Trump’s Twitter comments are proof of Obstruction “Sometimes I cringe”
@DevinNunes says that if anybody had anything to do w leak of Clinton’s emails IT WOULD BE CRIMINAL 🔥
‼️Jesus... then he’s asked about Rod Rosenstein and impeachment proceedings and Nunes said that there is an ongoing plan to impeach him but it has to be kept quiet- because it triggers the Senate to vote and they are delaying it to get Kavanaugh first‼️

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/

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/

Trump admits "dirt" part of Trump Tower meeting b/c lawyers realize their earlier "adoption" cover story actually reveals the #TrumpRussia conspiracy's quid-pro-quo: Election help for lifting Sanctions on Putin's oligarchs. THREAD and article below on avoiding propaganda framing:
Trump admits "dirt" but is covering up Russia conspiracy's Quid-Pro-Quo: Dirt for Magnitsky sanctions easing + broad pro-Russia policy agenda.

Another lie: "No follow up" to #TrumpTowerMeeting. Both Veselnitskaya & Agalarovs did re sanctions after election, @RepAdamSchiff #QPQ
@RepAdamSchiff I've been trying to get folks to focus on Russia's malign mission to ease sanctions for years. That's why Putin wanted Trump & attacked our election. @tribelaw agrees, calling Trump Tower meeting dirt for sanctions quid-pro-quo"bribery." Underlying conspiracy crimes are profound.

Thread: My thoughts on the state of #TrumpRussia
2.The right is desperate: As the left moves on from collusion and starts using the legal definition of the crime - conspiracy against the US, the right is now screaming about collusion being a crime.
2. In their minds, the actor hiring an American company like FUSION gps to do opposition research is no different than conspiring with the government of a hostile foreign power.

I started on this journey investigating #TrumpRussia. Of course, @realDonaldTrump conspired with Russia to win the election. It’s a no brainer. But, I don’t think that will be what takes him down. 1)
What could take him down are all of his affairs and the cover up before the election. It’s a damn shame that his partnership with Putin won’t be his downfall. 2)
I’m not a lawyer. I believe in Mueller’s investigation 💯. But I think the civil cases based on his lies and coverups prior to the election may be his downfall. Much easier to prove and more likely to get a deposition. And he will lie. End)
