2/"President Trump was energized. Fresh from the fight to confirm Brett Kavanaugh, he was firing up thousands of supporters at a rally by complaining about how Democrats had treated his nominee and how they may yet try to remove Justice Kavanaugh from the bench. “They’re saying,
3/"We’ll impeach him!’” Mr. Trump practically bellowed into the microphone here last week, his voice brimming with incredulity and righteous outrage. “Impeach him for what? For what?” The crowd booed on cue. “Besides that,” Mr. Trump then added slyly, “I have to go first, right?”
In part 3, we revealed Rohrabacher ties to Paul Manafort and figured out that Abramoffs scandals were treasonous Russia dealings. Abramoff/Manafort were the go to lobbyists and they chose to work for a foreign adversary to create the #GrandOldPutinPartythesternfacts.com/putins-favorit…
Peter Lemon, service in Vietnam. Sgt. Lemon defended his base against overwhelming numbers with his machine gun, when that failed, his rifle, then hand grenades, then hand to hand combat. He rescued comrades, fighting until he collapsed. #MedalOfHonoren.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_C._…
Mike Monsoor, Navy SEAL. Petty Officer Monsoor was fighting on a rooftop in Iraq when a grenade was thrown amongst him and comrades. He smothered the grenade with his own body. The USS Michael Monsoor is named for him. #Trump@DevinNunes#MedalOfHonornavy.mil/ah_online/moh/…
When I found the exposed 154 million US voter database in June 2016, I was able to trace the data to a company named L2 Political.
L2 then traced the leak to a client of theirs. The client claimed hackers had taken down their firewall which then publicly exposed the database.
L2's client did not suggest that *I* was the hacker(s) who had removed their firewall and exposed the database.
If true, this means there is confirmation, from the holder of the data, that a nationwide US voter registry _was_indeed_hacked_ months prior to the 2016 election.
I can't believe I didn't recall this sooner. Foreign hacking of the US election system was not much of a topic when I originally reported this 154 million voter record leak and the detail of actual confirmation of a US nationwide vote hack became lost in the ether.
2) Going into the game the Democrats were riding their #BlueWave of enthusiasm. They were so confident America was tired of all the lies and sordid behavior of Coach Trump that the Democrats could win the game easily.
3) They laughed at their good fortune every time a GOP player would pledge to work closely with their coach; such easy pickings.
Kudos to @TeaPainUSA, who helped spot the connection btwn the Alfa🇷🇺Bank & Trump servers. “The Trump domain vanished from the Web on 9/23, 2 days after @nytimes presented its data to BGR, Alfa Bank’s lobbyists in DC, but before it called Trump or Cendyn.”
In June 2018, @TeaPainUSA published this follow-up analysis of the AlfaBank🇷🇺Trump servers. The timing of their communication is consistent w/“database replication,” such as sharing a VERY LARGE voter file used for microtargeting.🤨
Brett Kavanaugh does not belong on the Supreme Court. He’s a partisan hack in a way no SC Justice has ever been. Not only did he involve himself in the Vince Foster conspiracy bs during the Clinton years but he literally represented
the Bush campaign in the 2000 Election Debacle and he also wrote the torture memos - and lied about it.
🔥@GOP operative Peter Smith raised >$100,000 to pay #Russian🇷🇺hackers to find Clinton’s emails. 10 days after telling his story to the @WSJ, he committed suicide, yet a friend spoke w/him about a new project hours before his death & says he was “excited.” wsj.com/articles/gop-o…
Smith continued his quest for HRC’s emails *after* the US warned of #Russian🇷🇺interference & went to extraordinary lengths to ensure secrecy, communicating via saved DRAFT (unsent) emails in a shared Gmail account.🤨
🔥One sent email said the >$100k in donations were to be sent to a DC-based scholarship fund for **Russian students**👉🏼“This $100k total with the $50k received from you (Smith) will allow us to fund the Washington Scholarship Fund for the Russian students for the promised $150K.”
#Thread: We need to talk about the @nytimes. I believe it's a conversation that is long overdue. We need to consider seriously that despite some excellent investigative journalism, something about their leadership is off. They appear to be compromised, even complicit at times.
Before I get into the details, I think it's important to frame this against the backdrop of that corruption: Donald Trump. He has been extremely vocal about them in a way he hasn't been with any other print publication, and in my opinion that is very much deliberate.
Consider for example that he rarely mentions the @WashingtonPost who has by all metrics been holding him to account. Donald knows that shining a light on them would potentially increase its readership. He only bullies those he believes he can bend to his will.
A billion-dollar Indonesian real estate development with ties to U.S. President Donald Trump has become the latest project in China’s globe-spanning Belt and Road infrastructure project — just as Washington and Beijing are tussling over trade. japantimes.co.jp/news/2018/05/1…
A subsidiary of Chinese state-owned construction firm Metallurgical Corporation of China (MCC) signed a deal with Indonesia’s MNC Land to build a theme park outside Jakarta as part of the ambitious project japantimes.co.jp/news/2018/05/1…
As the nation braces itself for the @GOP's latest betrayal in the runup to the #BrettKavanaugh confirmation vote, it is becoming clearer that even those we once believed retained some recognizably moral standards, simply don't.
Graham also ran for the 2016 @GOP nomination for president. He bragged that he had been “35 times to Iraq and Afghanistan. I am ready to be commander-in-chief on Day One.” I wonder whom he might have talked to⁉️ fortune.com/2015/09/17/rep…

Day 719 since Donald Trump admitted to sexual assault — yet he’s still in the Oval Office
Day 571 of NO EVIDENCE produced by Trump that his phones were tapped by Obama.
The FISA warrant Trump referenced targeted Carter Page. #TrumpLies
2. WaPo: "Prosecutors have sought to determine what Trump or those close to him knew about Flynn’s calls with the Russian ambassador, but McFarland does not appear to be a CRITICAL witness in that regard."
That may be because the FBI already knows the answer.
Just realized rest of my thread wasn’t connected to #2. Here’s the rest starting with #3
Rosenstein made his remarks about the #25thAmendment & secretly recording Trump in meetings & conversations w/other DOJ & FBI officials. Several people (briefed either on the events themselves or on memos written by FBI officials, including McCabe) described the episodes.🤨
Rosenstein reportedly told McCabe that he might be able to persuade Jeff Sessions & John Kelly to mount an effort to invoke the #25thAmendment.
All of these incidents allegedly occurred around the time that @Comey was fired. Rosenstein was very distressed & felt he was used.🤔
