A need for #CountryOverParty time.

Elected Republicans strongly rebuked President Trump when he rhetorically said (to @GStephanopoulos) that he'd take dirt from foreign power.

Now we know Pres. Trump actually tried to do it.

From NYT on June 13, 2019 👇
nytimes.com/2019/06/13/us/…
@GStephanopoulos “If a public official is approached by a foreign government offering anything of value, the answer is no — whether it be money, opposition research,” said @LindseyGrahamSC who said he spoke with Mr. Trump on Thursday about the matter.

NYT, June 13, 2019
@GStephanopoulos @LindseyGrahamSC “I wouldn’t do it,” said Republican Senator @SenJoniErnst of Iowa. “I wouldn’t accept material like that.”

When a reporter noted that Mr. Trump said politicians do it all the time, she added firmly: “No, we don’t. Let’s stop there. No we don’t.”

Steve Scalise and Kevin McCarthy are cowards - and are openly defending Trump's Machiavellianism.

1/ Machiavellianism in psychology refers to a personality trait which sees a person so focused on their own interests they will manipulate, deceive, and exploit others to achieve their goals.
2/ The dark tetrad in psychology refers to the personality traits of narcissism, Machiavellianism, psychopathy, and sadism - which are called "dark" because of their malevolent qualities.

I’ve observed Colorado @SenCoryGardner since his election. What I’ve seen has left me dismayed. Rather than building bipartisan bridges to get things done, Cory became a supine Trump yes-man. There are 1000s reasons he shouldn’t be re-elected. Here are 101: #VoteCoryOut #COsen
#1: Even though he was elected by the narrowest of margins in 2014 in a state that has since voted for Hillary in 2016 & a democratic state govt trifecta in 2018, Cory continues to act as if he has a mandate from the white nationalist alt-right. #VoteCoryOut #cosen
#2: Cory Gardner has consistently voted for the extreme Trump agenda. During the 2019-2020 Congress, he’s voted with Trump over 90% of the time. During Trump’s 1st two years, Cory’s voting record was over 95% in line with Trump. #VoteCoryOut #cosen

⚖️MuellerSpeaks⚖️

Russia launched attack on our political system

Moscow attacked the 2016 election to help Trump, & Trump assisted Putin’s assault by claiming at the time (& afterward) that RU didn’t.

Trump did side with a foreign adversary that attacked American democracy
⚖️MuellerSpeaks⚖️

Putin “launched a concerted attack on our political system,” & “used sophisticated cyber tech to hack into HRC campaign computers/networks

The RU stole private info & then released that info through fake online identities & through the organization WikiLeaks.
⚖️MuellerSpeaks3⚖️

The releases were designed/timed to interfere w/ our elex & to damage a presidential candidate & boost Trump.

“A private RU entity engaged in a SocMed op where RUs posed as Americans to influence an elex.”

Trump enthusiastically welcomed the Kremlin’s help

Very curious & incredibly coincidental that Rep. Justin Amash is 1st #Republican to call 4 #impeachment and represents the district in Michigan that includes Spectrum Health and the DeVos family. Remember the weird Trump-Alfa Bank comms #countryoverparty
newyorker.com/magazine/2018/…
The renewed interest in this weird now suggested Tor encrypted comms between a Trump controlled server, Alfa Bank in Russia, Spectrum Health and a number of other less frequent IPs, is from a recent FOIA request that included Christopher Steele notes wonkette.com/did-paul-manaf…
Have to say the FOIA requests & lawsuits resulting in discovery are not working well 4 groups trying to prove this is a witch hunt. Remember the Gubarev Webzilla lawsuit against Buzzfeed? Only helped to further validate the Steele Dossier nytimes.com/2019/03/14/us/…

🤡#LOSER 1 🤡

Trump exerts executive privilege over Mueller report. (Wait, is that in the Constitution?)

Nadler says, “[T]his kind of obstruction is dangerous. The Dept's decision reflects Trump’s blanket defiance of Congress’s constitutionally mandated duties.” #GONADler
💩 #LOSER 2 💩

House Judiciary votes and holds Barr in contempt. Vote now goes to full House.

Mnuchin refuses to provide Trump's taxes because Trump's a #BillionDollarLoser. (Spoiler: It's why he met with Russia.)

Speaker Pelosi talks about a jail in the Capitol bldg basement.
🚨 #LOSER 3 🚨

Trump, who cares more about ratings than governing, fears a televised Mueller hearing. 😈

Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee calls Trump Jr. to testify. Jr. may plead the fifth or decide not to come according to sources.

"Our boy can become president of the USA and we can engineer it. I will get all of Putins team to buy in on this, I will manage this process."
Sater email to Cohen

Mueller knows how much foreign 💰 was 💦 thru RNC/NRA/GOP & Trump campaign coffers via straw donors
💰StawDonors2💰

Photo op arranged by Cindy Yang at a fundraiser hosted by the RNC in NYC w/ Trump charged $50k per photo, benefiting Trump’s re-elex campaign.

But Ryan Xu & Lucas Lu did not pay.

A search of a fed DB showed no record of either man giving to Trump Victory,
💰StawDonors3💰

Yang isn’t saying — but she & three associates with an Asian-American political group donated a total of $135.5k to Trump Victory in the weeks leading up to the event.

📌One of them said she could not recall making a $25k donation listed in her name & address.

Is there no time restriction for assigning committee members? Is there some kind of reprimand available for @GOPLeader's & @senatemajldr's obstruction by refusing to appoint Congress members to @HouseIntel? Can @RepAdamSchiff overrule to send transcripts to #Mueller?

/1
I mean seriously @GOP KNOWS (we ALL know) that MOST of the witnesses perjured themselves during testimony. They KNOW #Mueller can charge them as soon as he gets those transcripts. This is PURPOSEFUL delay & obstruction of justice. @DonaldJTrumpJr @jeffsessions @jaredkushner

/2
It's WORSE b/c they KNOW the "president's" campaign staff & his family have legitimate legal liability. Which includes some DIRECTLY (like @DevinNunes #WHrendezvous)

Can @RepAdamSchiff subpoena him or @mike_pence since they were senior transition members? #NoOneIsAboveTheLaw

@realDonaldTrump This is so untrue. ISIS is reported to have killed 700 people recently. It doesn't sound like they've been defeated.

This must be part of the quid pro quo with Putin, SA, Assad, and Israel. We're not all stupid.

You're destabilizing the ME to justify #WagTheDog war with Iran.
@realDonaldTrump Is this more proof of #SecretsForSaleKen's 'awesome' diplomatic skills? Our country is being run by rank amateurs that have no fucking clue what they're doing. This will not end well. No one, with any experience, wants to work for a completely incompetent ignoramus.
#ResignNow
@realDonaldTrump I just can't believe that people think this idiot should be in charge of America. I will never understand it. Personally, I like a POTUS to be smarter than I am. It's 2018 & he's stuck, diplomatically & mentally, in the 80's. This will not end well.

I voted early 2 weeks ago & didn't vote for a single Republican. It pains me to say this, after a lifetime's career in GOP politics, but today, this moment, the only choice is to vote for Democrats.
Being quiet while the "president*" & his low travelers rain racism & anti-Semitism on our country is the same as participating directly. No policy position is worth selling your soul for hate.
Last night I reread Martin Luther King's Letter from a Birmingham Jail & was reminded of Dr. King's observation that white moderates were the greatest obstacles to achieving civil rights at that moment.

[THREAD] We are just over three weeks away from Election Day. I’ve said it before, and I still believe it’s true. This election is not about Democrat vs. Republican. It is about the U.S. Constitution vs. @realDonaldTrump's corruption and total disregard for truth and law [1/15]
.@realDonaldTrump idolizes brutal dictators, such as Vladimir Putin and Rodrigo Duterte, even saying he "fell in love" with Kim John-un, yet he has criticized or started trade wars with our closest allies, including Canada, Australia, Germany, and the United Kingdom [2/15]
.@realDonaldTrump reflexively insults & tries to intimidate anyone who dares to criticize him. He attaches insults and nicknames to people like he's in elementary school: Dumb, weak, stupid, little, dopey, incompetent, loser, lightweight, fool, dishonest, Pocahontas, etc. [3/15]

Prosecutors are weighing criminal charges against former Obama WH counsel Greg Craig for failing to register as a foreign agent (#FARA).

Craig wrote a false report on Ukrainian opposition leader, Yulia Tymoshenko, used by Manafort. 1/

cnn.it/2QwaXss
This is not unexpected, as Manafort funded money from offshore bank accounts to pay for Craig’s hit piece on Tymoshenko, who was JAILED illegally in #Ukraine by pro-#Russia🇷🇺 Yanukovich (Manafort’s client). 2/

In addition to Craig, former @GOP Rep. Vin Weber faces serious legal jeopardy for lobbying ILLEGALLY without filing #FARA.🙄

Same goes for Democratic former lobbyist, Tony Podesta. 3/

#FTR: Nixon WH Counsel, John Dean, is pretty much universally considered a hero in the Watergate scandal.

While he wasn't an angel, his cooperation ultimately led to Nixon's impeachment and resignation.

Hmm, I wonder why Trump would call him a "RAT" and view him negatively...?
#FLAG: Trump invokes McCarthyism, while hurling unfounded accusations at Democrats and the Special Counsel.

He claims he demands transparency, while his White House lies at every turn.

When he says "many lives have been ruined," he's setting up pardons.
#FLAG: Trump and the Right Wing often say "No Collusion...except by Crooked Hillary and the Democrats."

It's a repeated counter-narrative about the FusionGPS commissioned #SteeleDossier, claiming it's collusion.

It's been debunked. But truth isn't truth.

Since Trump has been president, he has increased the national debt by over $1T.

Yes. One trillion dollars.

The fastest any president in U.S. history has accrued that level of debt.
