1/21 As I write this thread, this story is still developing.

What we currently know, though, is that at least four GOP Senators took what they learned from early coronavirus briefings &, rather than help their constituents, used it to line their pockets through insider trading.
2/21 California Rep. Duncan Hunter was just sentenced to 11 months for misusing campaign funds.

Martha Stewart went to jail for insider trading.

Gaslighting is psychological manipulation to make someone question their own memory, perception, and sanity.

🤣LOL...before Trump will agree to an interview, Guiliani says Mueller must prove he has evidence that:

✅Trump committed a crime
✅His testimony is essential to the probe

👆🏼These are required for a GJ #subpoena of a *target*. Mueller has BOTH.😎

TRUTH: @realDonaldTrump is *refusing* a voluntary interview and is requiring a similar burden of proof that Mueller would need to get a #subpoena, assuming Trump is a *target* of the grand jury probe — a very safe bet.😉 2/
