1. Though it raises a few legal issues, obstruction of justice is a RICO predicate offense. So I expect every time @realDonaldTrump gets sued from now on he's looking at treble damages + attorneys fees. For me destroying Trump family & GOP would be more satisfying than losing an
2. impeachment trial.

Here is an excerpt from the RICO definition of "Racketeering Activity" : . . . "section 1503 (relating to obstruction of justice), section 1510 (relating to obstruction of criminal investigations), section 1511 (relating to the obstruction of
3. State or local law enforcement), section 1512 (relating to tampering with a witness, victim, or an informant),section 1513 (relating to retaliating against a witness, victim, or an informant)."

Now that the @realDonaldTrump controlled @GOP can easily be proven to be engaged

1. Was looking at DC dockets & saw Maria Butina's pre-sentencing report was recently filed. No date set and joint motion for her judicial removal was filed but pending with no hearing date. All-in-all Maria looks like she's heading home to a heroes welcome. But I'm not convinced. Maria Butina mug shot
2. Who else is remaining? It's all the real Russia stuff. Butina with her links to the Kochs via the NRA, Patten, Flynn, Edwards and Wikileaks. All still pending and all related to Russia. And the Govt Attorneys on Butina's case are still National Security section. The real deal.
3. I think Butina is a GRU agent. She was in Donbass during the Russian attack.

The Russians think they won. That may be what we want them to think. One thing about the Mueller Report, I was not surprised about is that the GRU didn't get close to Trump. They didn't have to.

1. More on Barr. He's playing a game by saying that White House outside counsel has not seen the report. IMO Barr gave it to @WhiteHouse counsel that also includes his son. He's also playing a game with 6(e) pretending that his made up redaction category (3rd parties) is law.
2. Uncharged people who were raised in the grand jury are generally protected by 6(e). Barr appears to me to be adding the people who may not have been in the 6(e) scope. IMO likely his law firm K&E & McGahn's firm Jones Day along with @SenateGOP @HouseGOP & #KochBrothers et al.
3. Nothing I saw or heard today changes my view @RepAdamSchiff has the full report. If he doesn't and he has asked for it, then @TheJusticeDept & Barr are engaged in obstruction under 18 USC 1505 for not providing it to national security investigators as provided in 6(e)(3)(D).

1. Latin America is a perpetual American policy failure. US can't even deal with it's own Latin American constituents. It's not surprising we aren't a more positive force in the Western Hemisphere. US tendency to reduce policy to binary choices rarely advances our interests.
2. Since Castro the US has been playing catch-up in the region because we have advanced a narrative of better dead than red. Not for us because we enjoy a modest Social Security infrastructure. Farm subsidies & oil depletion. Current call to move towards a European social model
3. has been met with the customary John Birch #KochBrothers' red scare but this time is different. Trump has energized liberals. He also destroyed the traditional GOP conservative base replacing it with a white-supremacist rabble. Now is the time for liberals to get stuff done.

.@realDonaldTrump is appearing at the Republican Jewish Congress. I've never heard of it but they've apparently heard of me. 😎 Why would a Jewish group fund a guy loved by Nazis? Otherwise inexplicable block tells me 90% @RJC is a #KochBrothers and/or Alt Right front. @ADL @TimInHonolulu blocked by Republican Jewish Congress
Do a Google search for "Nazi Eagle Iconography" and look at the "Images" the search returns. You'll see where the @RJC got its logo. @ADL
Link to a deep dive report on this group. Republican Jewish Coalition - Right Web - Institute for Policy Studies shar.es/am8Pk1

I think this trip that wasn't planned until recently is because Trump and the RNC are facing huge legal bills.

It's clear Barr is obstructing Congress in violation of 18 USC 1505. Somebody at @FBIWFO should be reading him his rights. And please. Don't tell me the AG can't obstruct. @TheJusticeDept @maddow @Lawrence John Mitchell
On Mitchell's picture: :What people call method acting deals with sensory memory. You use things like pictures. Mitchell's evoked a "giddy anxiety."

I was hounding Nixon too starting in 1969. #Watergate impacted family relationships. Mitchell's picture brings that all back.
Trump's a traitor but he's still not as scary as Nixon: Authoritarian and smart.
Looking back on how we got out of that mess peacefully, 1st we didn't have Congress owned entirely by the #KochBrothers. So the @SenateGOP still functioned.

1. After two careers, I returned to finish my University degree focusing on a possible diplomatic, intelligence or law enforcement career. I focused on 🇨🇳PRC politics during a time when scholarship involved estimating how many tens of millions of Chinese might starve next year.
2. Folks like @AOC and @SenSanders who conflate Socialism with Keynesian economics need to stop or move to another party.

My parents lived in war-torn China. My father had tried to organize a coolie union in Shanghai. The Kochs and John Birch society ilk lead to the CCP
3. extreme radicalization that Mao was predisposed to advance. Our government had a hand in creating the monster that devoured the Chinese people for decades.

What is a liberal? I'm one so I'm pretty sure, it's being a "reluctant collectivist." Not someone who wants collective

1. How FISA works: Our spooks intercept something about you likely from intercepts of Russian folks. #DOJ is alerted. If they intend to pursue a criminal investigation they tell the @FBIWFO to seek a #FISA warrant.
2. @NRA @GOP #KochBrothers @Trump-sters who've been playing footsie with Ruskies, ya'll are all screwed. A FISA warrant will devour your life and anyone complicit of anything near you. You can't win. You're fighting Terminators. They won't stop until you and yours are charged.
3. If you're @SenateGOP @HouseGOP holding out on Mueller like I'm guessing old @LindseyGrahamSC is doing, you need to talk to a lawyer about how the federal constitutional system works. You can be charged by states. Or by loyal US Attorneys in places like S.Dakota. @SpeakerPelosi

1. @senatemajldr McConnell is running in 2020 and it's possible he fears @realDonaldTrump getting angry and then getting even via a primary candidate challenge but the reality of this strategy is so counter @POTUS' interests that it shocks me. He's self impeaching. Amazing.
2. McConnell could easily take Trump off the #Shutdown hook by allowing a vote and then even if Trump vetoes, it's likely to be overturned. Today the House voted 85% on a measure. But McConnell must not trust Trump to cover him with the @foxandfriends trolls and believes it's
3. better for Mitch to just let Trump implode his presidency via self immolation. The polls are starting to plummet. Giuliani's recent bizarre performance says to me he knows they're about to round up the campaign conspiracy. Probably Trump's family. And it may be a state case.

1. 1993-4 my late brother investigated Bill Barr, Reagan, Bush & Baker among others. It was a strange case involving the CIA. Most of the investigation was top secret "code-worded now called SCI. The case was the pet peeve of the @nytimes' William Safire who rage op-ed-ed it.
2.The accusations involved the CIA arming Saddam Hussein with WMD including nuclear weapons technology. It centered around a small Atlanta bank branch of a larger Italian bank that was accused of laundering US farm credits to Iraq. My brother promised to give me a copy of
3. an unclassified version of his report. He never did. He never discussed it after it was submitted and I presume it was never declassified. John died last year. Here is Merrick Garland on John as counselor to the Attorney General.

1. Here's the guy who can give @TheDemocrats 60 Senate seats in 2021 so Dems can pack #SCOTUS with 4 more justices. He's burning his own caucus for #TraitorTrump. And we'll never let voters forget. List of 2020 GOP class on @senatemajldr McConnell's #ShutdownDeathMarch.
2. Easy ones are @SenJoniErnst @SenCoryGardner @SenatorCollins @SenMcSallyAZ. Democrats in their states got more MidTerm votes so they're likely to loose their seats. But 2020 also has real challenges for GA, KS, NC, TX and even KY. But there's something else possibly looming.
3. IMO most 2016 @SenateGOP class took Russian money. Have you noticed one 2016 member @lisamurkowski isn't putting up with #TovarishTrump? Pretty sure she was not in GOP 2016 funding ecosystem. Other ones have issues and these in yellow were on the Moscow July 4 treason train.

1. Are @SteveScalise & his #KochBrothers masters are starting to get nervous about @AOC? In 1950 the top rate >$200k was 91%. Home with two car garage #americandream was alive & well. That's not a dream of only the left. Once a dream of all Americans before the @GOP betrayal.
2. How much money have you gotten from the #KochBrothers to betray your district Steve? If we can split LA1st white vote & 22% people of color come out to vote your on the street Steve. @LaDemos let's get someone teed up to challenge Steve. Don't wait for 2020. Do it now.
3. We can start a small social media task force to begin flooding employers in LA1st to show them how Scalise and the GOP is bad for business. Oh and I'm sure he took Russian money in 2016 so Steve is likely to end up in prison. But the key is he's working for Russia. Like Trump.

1. Some observations on Ukraine. I have been watching the reports of Russian build up and threats of invasion but based on my past observations including the steady Russian ship traffic in Azov I considered it the usual Russian Christmas holiday murder of Ukrainians.
2. But @realDonaldTrump's recent capitulation to @RT_Erdogan and Turkey's ISIS allies may have given @KremlinRussia_E a belief that it can also threaten an attack like Erdogan did, and Trump would cave, like he did in Syria. A coward lets off an odor a predator can smell.
3 So today I was engaged by a very high end Russian troll who seemed to have a set script. At first I could not identify the strategy but think I do now. The Russians need American accounts to amplify an imminent Russian attack in Ukraine. Trump and the Kremlin #MAGA botnet

1. IMO Comey, who elected Trump, is #KochBrothers operative. He wants to avoid having an impeachment vote because the 20 GOP Senators in 2020 will be put at risk. Seven by my count now stand very good chance to lose. Having to vote for a traitor could open remaining to a rout.
2. If you add that several Senators in 2016 GOP cycle are likely to be indicted it is conceivable that Dems reach the majic 67 seat majoriy in the Senate that would allow removal of GOP judges at will. Comey is trying to stop that from happening. Kochs worst nightmare.
3. On 2016 cycle. Add Ron Johnson to yellow July 4 Moscow list. They are my top suspects. I spotted the Russian money in June 2016. Told the feds via several Tweets. I suspected FINCEN would get them. It did.

Um, unless you want an Article V Convention of States to re-write the U.S. Constitution (a Koch-funded effort), you might want to contact the 6 WI counties that have installed cellular modems and insist that they be removed. 1/
Here is the Thread w/ contact info. and a proposed script for the 6 Wisconsin counties (including WI's 3 most populous) that have installed cellular modems. I initially directed it to Wisconsin voters, but have changed my mind bc this affects ALL of us. 2/
Pls let me know if you can call and/or email these 6 counties and the Wisconsin Election Commission to demand removal of the cellular modems. Thanks! #ProtectOurVotes #noconcon 3/

1. When Russia attacked #Ukraine I saw it coming. Obama angered Putin by cruising two Naval war ships off of Sochi during Olympics. The soon to be grounded USS Taylor, an obsolete Perry frigate, and the command ship the USS White Plains. The @DeptofDefense has great weapons
2. but is completely unarmed when it comes to propaganda defense. I watched the Ukraine Maidan and saw that Russia was getting ready to invade. I did what I could to fight Russian propaganda but without competent @CIA @DefenseIntel capability the Russians just rolled into Ukraine
3. and are still there. We need to wall Russia out of our internet. The @NSAGov can put switches on each entry point for Russian packets. It will take time and there will be cracks but the blocking of all Russian internet traffic must be strategic goal of the US @DeptofDefense.
