Is Trump on a Collision Course With Impeachment?
#SundayMotivation #VoteBlue #Midterms2018 #TrumpRussia
nyti.ms/2QMOZ3S
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 May 2017, @grantstern and I wrote this deep dive into the roots of the #GrandOldPutinParty after I discovered a Putin propagandist embedded in the #GOP for 40 years.

Read it again. Send it to your friends. Vote against Treason. #TrumpRussia

In part 2 of that story, @grantstern uncovered that Lozansky had the names of Trump’s advisors before they were announced. Rohrabacher was backing Cruz in public at the time.

Vote for @HarleyRouda to prevent a traitor from another term in office. thesternfacts.com/last-year-puti…
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 #GrandOldPutinParty thesternfacts.com/putins-favorit…

Thread: As Trump says @DevinNunes should receive the Medal of Honor, let’s have a look at some of its actual recipients. Mary Edwards Walker - frontline field surgeon at the first Battle of Bull Run, spy #TrumpRussia en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_Edwa…
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. #MedalOfHonor en.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 #MedalOfHonor navy.mil/ah_online/moh/…

1.) On October 09, 2018, @HillaryClinton was interviewed in Oxford England by @camanpour & said something that caught my attention. 'Swift Boating'
amp.cnn.com/cnn/2018/10/09…
2.) If you don't know the definition of 'Swift Boating' in the political world, let me lay that out for you very clearly.

The term swiftboating is a pejorative American neologism used to describe an UNFAIR or UNTRUE Political Attack.
en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swiftboat…
3.)Interesting to note that President Bill Clinton’s Senior Advisor for Policy & Communications Joel Johnson at @gloverparkgroup was emailing @jmpalmieri & @johnpodesta about the @realDonaldTrump 'Swift Boat' project in Feb of 2016

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.

1) Columbus Day 2018 is half time at the 2018 Mid-Term Bowl. The score is GOP 17 and Democrats 16. Let’s recap the first half.

#BlueWave #RedWave #2018MidTermElections

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.”

newyorker.com/magazine/2018/…
Here’s @TeaPainUSA’s original report from **April 2017** on the AlfaBank🇷🇺Trump server connection.

#TrumpRussia

teapainusa.wordpress.com/2017/04/03/dat…
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.🤨

My thoughts on this whole Kavanaugh debacle.

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.

google.com/amp/s/www.wash…
He has also stated in the past that presidents shouldn’t be indicted, and has some severe dubious Russia connections.

🔥@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.

Ya see....I figure this is what prompted the media spin away from the emails.

People chased other stories while not focusing on the attached. The alt-light links to Mark Judge were massive. That’s why I found it “odd” he was named in the letter.

This was the real story IMOO.
“Spit balling thread”

Think about the timing of the Ford/Kavanaugh “letter”. I nor pretty much anybody would have a way to either prove or disprove the allegations 100%.

Look at the purported hacked emails above and then look at the links.

Spit balling=distraction.
Now in a NON PARTISAN perspective...simply read what the man is alleging in his tweet.

What “side” or group of people would be implicated if his allegations were to be thoroughly investigated?

Then...using the same perspective look at the toooooo easily found links to Judge.

They told us @HillaryClinton was just as bad as @realDonaldTrump.

Hell, @SusanSarandon said she was worse.

She should really never open her mouth about politics again, ever.

That anyone ever fell for that ridiculous lie is beyond disgraceful.

Even if Clinton were guilty of the types of corruption they claimed she was she would still not be comparable in this way to Donald Trump.

Not even close.

But she's clearly not.

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.

@SenatorCollins, @lisamurkowski--we see you.

How often do @ChuckGrassley & @LindseyGrahamSC lose their shit like they did at Kavanaugh’s testimony⁉️Just one other time- when Graham wanted to know why he hasn’t heard back if his conversations w Foreign leaders were monitored overseas 🤔Curious⁉️c-span.org/video/?c467504…
🔥Grassley & Graham might have had a personal reason for requesting these #TrumpRussia FISA warrants. Are they worried that our intel heard something treasonous?🔥washingtonexaminer.com/chuck-grassley…
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…

@mbyrnes37 @emptywheel Brian Benczkowski was appointed Head of the DoJ Criminal division by R' votes only. He would replace Rosenstine if Trump fired him.

Benczkowski could fire Mueller and end all the work Mueller's people were doing. A Constitutional Crisis yes.
States AGs are not under the DoJ.
@mbyrnes37 @emptywheel State charges against Trump and his crime family can not be pardoned. NY and NJ have enough to bring Trump & Co. down.

Mueller is always 10 steps ahead of Trump and his Three Stooges Legal Team.
I'm sure Mueller saw this coming when Benczkowski was appointed to DoJ.
@mbyrnes37 @emptywheel The rush to confirm Kavanaugh is connected to #TrumpRussia

Getting Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court has been the GOP endgame for a long time.

I started posting this thread right after the Nunes recording came out.

24 months after some of us started talking about #TrumpRussia, the New York Times does...and they do a terrible job at it. nytimes.com/interactive/20…
I’ll admit, after the first few sections I only parsed the story for names but there is just so much missing.

What about the Russian mob?
They say none of the convictions have to do with Russia which is complete and utter horseshit. They miss the decades of conspiracy. They miss the religious right. There’s no mention of Weyrich.

Good report—by @shaneharris @DevlinBarrett—on #TrumpRussia.

In this <thread> I'll unpack implications, hidden nuggets

•Did Trump know?
•Was this conspiracy to mislead FBI (important: including McGahn, Priebus)?
•(Why) is McFarland still lying to FBI?
washingtonpost.com/world/national…
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

🛑BREAKING🛑

Rod Rosenstein suggested last year that he secretly record Trump to expose "chaos" consuming the administration & discussed recruiting cabinet members to invoke the #25thAmendment.

Will Trump use this as an excuse to fire Rosenstein⁉️

nytimes.com/2018/09/21/us/…
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.🤔

#Russian🇷🇺diplomats held secret talks in London last year and plotted to smuggle Julian Assange out of #Ecuador’s London embassy in a diplomatic vehicle and transport him to #Russia.

But WikiLeaks isn’t a cutout for Russian intelligence or anything.🙄

theguardian.com/world/2018/sep…
Fidel Narváez (close Assange confidant) recently was Ecuador’s London consul & served as a point of contact w/#Russia🇷🇺.

Narváez previously tried to help Edward Snowden👉🏼travelled to Moscow & gave Snowden a “safe-conduct“ document.🙄

#SHOCKER
#TrumpRussia
Four separate sources said the Kremlin was willing to offer support for Assange’s escape plot – including allowing Assange to travel to #Russia🇷🇺and live there.

So NOT shocking.🙄
