THREAD: WALK OUT, DEMOCRATS

I said this yesterday and I'll say it again today: Democrats are legitimizing #Kavanaugh by not walking out.

They should release a joint statement that until the #Mueller and #Cohen matters are resolved, Trump cannot appoint a #SCOTUS justice.
The GOP is hellbent on pushing the #KavanaughConfirmation through. If Democrats walked out and he were seated, he'd have far LESS legitimacy on the bench than if they went through the motions of what they called a "sham" proceeding.
No matter how sharp their questions, no matter how much they protest the rules and procedures and document dumps, Dems are ENABLING THE GOP in brazen court-stacking. Republicans STOLE #MerrickGarland's seat and are shoving rightwing justices through. WHY ARE DEMS PLAYING ALONG?

Carl Bernstein once wrote about the CIA Operation Mockingbird
Now he is part of it. Sad
heres some questions 🚬
- compared to Obama Surveillance and other Presidental crimes, are Nixon's crimes that bad?
- is it possible CIA spooks set up Nixon like they attempted to set up Trump?
- Is Carl Bernstein now, and was he then, working for the CIA?
*puts feet up* you know fam ive been thinking about an alternate POV...
about watergate, about the ken starr whitewater hearings, about jack kennedy - some things make a lot more sense if you see them as spook wars

TL-DR: Anti-Trump cyborgs dominate, but there is a concentrated, active group of pro-Trump bots and cyborgs. Most of the top cyborgs (14 out of the top 20) oppose Donald Trump while four support him, with two being not clearly aligned in either direction.
Interestingly, of the 253 likely bots and cyborgs who link to URLs external to twitter.com, the largest sub-group (community #13) consists of 62 predominantly right-wing bots/cyborgs that support Donald Trump.

Was there a third important court event, on top of #Manafort and #Cohen verdicts? Prosecutors and Flynn lawyers agreed to postpone #Flynn’s sentencing; sentencing is the usual day of reckoning for cooperation.
It is not unheard-of for a “substantial assistance” motion to be filed after sentencing, but it’s rare. The #Flynn plea is in; the sentencing memos are presumably complete; the question of “substantial assistance” — cooperation — is the logical reason for postponement.
I may be reading too much into this terse and nondescript document, but very big things moving sometimes leave only small surface ripples.

Seine Skandale holen ihn endlich ein: Donald #Trump wird von seinem Ex-Anwalt Michael #Cohen bezichtigt, mit ihm illegale Wahlkampffinanzierungen begangen zu haben. Ist das nun der Anfang vom Ende des US-Präsidenten? Nope. [THREAD] #CohenPleaDeal #TrumpRussia
To recap: #Cohen bekennt sich schuldig, dem Ex-Playmate Karen #McDougal und der Pornodarstellerin #StormyDaniels auf illegale Weise Schweigegeld gezahlt zu haben. „In coordination with and at the direction of [#Trump]" und „to influence the election“. huffingtonpost.de/entry/donald-t…
#Cohen impliziert #Trump also in seinen Verbrechen. Das ist extrem brisant – und gewagt. Denn zwar hat Cohen ein Tape, in dem er die Zahlungen mit Trump diskutiert. Doch das gibt nicht 100% Aufschluss darüber, ob Trump illegale Finanzierungen bewilligte. huffingtonpost.de/entry/ex-anwal…

That look when you figure out paying #NDA for activities prior and unrelated to a campaign does NOT qualify as an 'in kind contribution'.
The look when #Cohen realized he took a #PleaDeal with non crimes being charged.
Of course... We don't know what was NOT charged. Perhaps 2 fictitious charges are a win... It's possible. 6 years beats 10 or 20 any day. #justSaying

🔥Breaking🔥@ArianeBellamar correspondence was found during #Cohen raid. Michael Cohen AKA Tom Stokes was a part time ‘fixer’ for @jeremypiven whom Ariane was outing since she was #MeToo‼️Please follow her so she can get her story out‼️@MichaelAvenatti

(THREAD) Okay, I’m pretty sure I’ve figured this one out.

The phone conversation between Trump and Cohen took place around Sept 6, and was clearly CAMPAIGN RELATED. (h/t to Philip Bump, WaPo). #cohen
1/ Pecker (the “David” on the tape) has already paid $150K to Macdougal to get the rights to her story, which he will then bury. (In journalism, it’s called “catch and kill.”)
2/ Trump and Cohen agree that it’s important for Trump to BUY the story from Pecker.

New #QAnon Thread

6/3/18
New #QAnon 1666.
breitbart.com/big-government…

FVEY will be relevant going forward, especially the role of UK in #Spygate.

We're approaching [RR's] deadline to turn over docs or face consequences.

#Q says they have the server, so they have it all.
@POTUS #obamagate #Trump #MAGA
New #QAnon 1667.

Normally, intelligence passed from FVEY comes through an official channel, but Nunes says they used only unofficial channels.

Why? To hide their crimes from prying eyes?

The #Cohen ex parte application for a #gag order of #Avenatti - beyond being legally weak and conclusory - is in blatant violation of the court’s case law regarding such applications. It contains no reasoning why ex parte relief is required. See Local Rule 7-19. 1/2
See Mission Power Eng. Co. v. Continental Cas. Co. (C.D. Cal. 1995) (noting that such motions are used abusively and are “rarely justified.”) They require specific procedures (not followed by Cohen) & are for when the normal notice process would result in irreparable harm. 2/
Further, the moving party must show they aren’t at fault in creating the need for ex parte relief. Here, #Avenatti has been vocal for months. #Cohen and his goober lawyer fail to explain why they waited this long to file instead of bringing a noticed motion. 3/

Au vu de ce tweet aberrant et de la logorrhée anti enquête #Mueller/#FBI,2 questions:
1) y a-t-il 1 révélation dans les tuyaux expliquant ce"pétage de plombs"apparent?
2) Mais #Trump s'égare-t-il vraiment ou organise-t-il avec soin les conditions du renvoi de Rosenstein/Mueller?
2) #thread Rappel de la situation: #Trump veut imposer l'idée que le #FBI espionna sa campagne à l'été 2016. En fait, selon ses méthodes habituelles, ayant connaissance de contacts inappropriés de 3 membres de la campagne #Trump avec la #Russie, le FBI leur a envoyé 1 informateur
3) Cet informateur du #FBI, ex de la CIA reconverti dans la recherche sur le renseignement, Stefan Halper, rencontra Page, Papadopoulos et Clovis, soupçonnés d'être les portes d'entrée de la #Russie dans la campagne #Trump. Bref, le #FBI a fait son job: du CONTRE-ESPIONNAGE...

Extraordinaire #breaking du @washingtonpost ce soir qui décrit l'avocat de #Trump Michael #Cohen aujourd'hui inquiété par la justice fédérale. La relation des 2 hommes est explorée en profondeur avec pas mal de révélations. #àlire washingtonpost.com/politics/micha…
2) On comprend mieux en lisant le @washingtonpost ce soir la relation asymétrique entre #Cohen et #Trump. Le 1er a été 1 admirateur dès le lycée puis 1 copropriétaire de #Trump à la Trump World Tower de NYC et c'est en lui sauvant son poste de"syndic" que Cohen devint son avocat
3) #Trump apparaît une nouvelle fois comme 1 personne sans amis véritables, ce qui ressort de tous ses portraits, n'acceptant dans son intimité que famille et personnes lui démontrant 1 loyauté absolue...comme #Cohen après 2006.

Wow. I’m going to highlight some of the important (and hilarious) parts of the governments filing here. Good stuff and a lot to be learned about Cohen/Trump. #CohenFiling #StormyDaniels #Friday13
This document is the Govt's Opposition to Cohen's Motion for a Temporary Restraining Order. In layman's terms, he's trying to keep the govt from looking at what it lawfully took from his office, hotel, etc. 2/ #CohenFiling pacer-documents.s3.amazonaws.com/119/491943/127…
On page 1 of the filing, it states that Cohen is under criminal investigation. For what he's being investigated, it's blacked out. But just let it sink in that the attorney for the President of the United States is under criminal investigation. And it gets better. #CohenFiling 3/
