1. En cette période de commémoration, je voudrais parler de Rose, une grande dame pour laquelle je veux tenir nos mémoires en éveil. Sa vie a basculé entre le 22/04 et le 17/06/1994. Chaque jour jusqu'au 17/06, je vais vous parler de celle qu'elle fut #laVieDeRose #Rwanda #RwOT🇷🇼
2. Comme toute chronique, l’itinéraire de vie que je vais vous raconter est divisé en plusieurs périodes. L'histoire de Rose suit le calendrier de l'Histoire de son pays natal, le Rwanda : avant 1959, entre 1959 et 1994, entre avril et juillet 1994 et après 1994. #laVieDeRose
3. Elle s’appelait donc Rose, et elle était aussi belle que la reine des fleurs. Comme ne tarderait pas à le démontrer son parcours accidenté de jeune fille, de femme, de mère puis de veuve, Rose appartenait à la version la plus résistante de l’arbuste dont elle porte le nom.

🔥WHOA🔥

Right after the Feds raided Michael Cohen, lawyers connected to Rudy Giuliani pressured Cohen NOT to flip on @realDonaldTrump with the “implicit message that if Cohen hired these lawyers, it could preserve or increase his chances of a #pardon.”🤬
abcnews.go.com/US/lawyers-cla…
The 2 lawyers never joined Cohen’s legal team but sent Cohen a bill for legal services (he didn’t pay) that included fees for at least a 6n phone calls btwn the lawyers and Giuliani, and a late June in-person meeting in NY btwn at least 1 of the attorneys and Giuliani.🔥
SDNY prosecutors now have the legal bill along with logs of numerous calls and copies of emails btwn the attorneys and Cohen. During a meeting with Cohen earlier this year, federal prosecutors asked who paid the bill, but Cohen said he did not know who, if anyone, did.🧐

"The sitting president of the United States financed an illegal cover-up from inside the White House…The president hosted a foreign leader in the Oval Office, then wrote a check. He haggled over legislation, then wrote a check. He traveled abroad, then wrote a check." So damning
This really shows the absurdity of DOJ policy NOT to indict a sitting president. The greater the evidence of criminality, the greater incentive a criminal POTUS has to stay in office. Trump may seek a 2d term as a result. Why EVER leave if being POTUS prevents legal exposure?!
🤯Trump paid #MichaelCohen $420,000—monthly checks—throughout 2017—signed by Jr, Weisselberg, sitting POTUS
+$130,000 to reimburse payment to keep Stormy silent
+$50,000 to manipulate online polls to inflate Trump’s business reputation
+$180,000 for Cohen's taxes
+$60,000 #bonus

#BREAKING: @HouseJudiciary Committee kicks off investigation into Trump for obstruction, corruption & abuses of power w/ 1st document requests to 81 individuals & entities—a who’s who of RussiaGate—Peter Smith estate, Cambridge Analytica, Fabrizio, Calamari; NRA, Hicks, Reince…
@HouseJudiciary .@HouseJudiciary's massive doc requests can't even keep up with Trump's growing abuses of power. Add Gary Cohn to the 81. Trump pressed him to block ATT/Warner merger—to hurt CNN for critical reporting. Cancer grows if not removed. Impeachment inquiry is warranted & long overdue.
🛎 Ding Ding Ding 🛎 What are we up to, 83? Add Giuliani to @HouseJudiciary list of 81 document requests to individuals and entities inquiring into Trump’s abuse of power, corruption and obstruction of justice. #MichaelCohen #Pardon @RepJerryNadler #maddow

THREAD: the filings by Mueller and SDNY on Cohen are BIGLY bad news for @realDonaldTrump and his spawn, Don Jr, Kremlin🇷🇺Barbie, and Eric and *clearly* indicate that Trump is an UNINDICTED co-conspirator.

And then, there's the Manafort memo... 1/

#TrumpRussia
First, SDNY makes it clear that Cohen does *not* have a formal cooperation agreement **with them** (but stay tuned on this front later...). As such, SDNY asks the Court to a "substantial term of imprisonment."🤔 2/
SDNY *nails* Cohen for 4 federal felonies to which he pleaded GUILTY: tax evasion, making false statements to a bank, illegal campaign contributions, and making false statements to Congress. 3/

La langue de Molière, c’est la langue française, qui a bien évolué depuis Molière. Elle s’est répandue, elle s’est stabilisée, elle s’est normalisée.
L’alphabétisation, l’instruction, l’école obligatoire, la diffusion de l’écrit, du livre et des dictionnaires ont largement contribué à ce qu’une langue française à peu près universelle, la même pour tous, praticable par tous, accessible par tous, soit mise en place.
À l’époque de Molière, le livre, en français ou en latin, était une rareté, un objet de luxe, réservé à quelques élites savantes et économiques.

SO THIS IS CRAZY👇
1) The tale of how one presently incarcerated man, inspired the FBI raid, on Paul Manafort, while the FakeMSM used our sitting POTUS Trump as a shiny ball- completely unaware that he was learning

2) that a US Senator and successor of @HillaryClinton @JohnKerry and his merry band of skull and bones, Bohemian Grove, and Bilderbergettes hold the key to solving the largest Art Heist in World History.

3) AND SO IT BEGINS... with the raid on Paul Manafort's office that was NOT in hot pursuit of dirt on Trump.

Oh no, Manafort was raided because he had evidence that had been concealed by the Obama Admin that pertained to

#Breaking La dérive à la fois monarchique de la présidence US sous #Trump s'accentue. Il vient de commuer la perpétuité d' 1 ancienne trafiquante de drogue Alice Johnson dont #KimKardashian avait plaidé la cause la semaine dernière. Fonctionnement inédit. axios.com/trump-pardon-a…
2) Les pardons/grâces à répétition de #Trump- il en envisage 1 trentaine- dans les prochains jours selon @cnn- sont inédits car d'ordinaire le président attend les derniers jours de son mandat pour les prononcer. Obama commua 330 sentences son dernier jour. Mais ce n'est pas tout
3) En 2 mandats et huit ans, G.W Bush commua 11 peines et prononça 189 pardons/grâces. Avec #Trump, on semble passer à 1 rythme industriel et surtout de procédure. Les précédents présidents suivaient une procédure bien codifiée organisée par l'Office of the Pardon Attorney...

THREAD: Remember the claims by @realDonaldTrump & cronies that he'd sit for an interview w/Mueller⁉️

Trump LIED.🙄

Trump’s lawyers have **for months** tried to prevent Mueller from trying to force Trump to answer questions = #subpoena‼️ 1/

nytimes.com/2018/06/02/us/…
In a letter to Mueller, Trump's lawyers claim that Trump "cannot be compelled" to testify.🙄

WRONG! Mueller can #subpoena Trump to FORCE him to testify **in front of the grand jury**.😎

Trump's lawyers CAN be w/him for an interview, but NOT for grand jury testimony.😉 2/
Trump's lawyers also claim Trump "could not possibly have committed obstruction b/c he has unfettered authority over all federal investigations."🤨

Yeah, just ask Nixon about that‼️3/

Friedman is a SIGNIFICANT business partner of Cohen. Under his agreement, Freidman will **avoid jail time**, and must assist government prosecutors in "STATE or FEDERAL investigations".🤔

Just imagine what Friedman knows to get such a sweet deal‼️😎

Cohen is TOAST.🤣 2/
Freidman has been Cohen’s partner in the taxi business (easy way to launder money) for years, managing cabs for him even after NYC regulators BARRED Freidman last year from continuing to manage taxi medallions.🤨 3/

THREAD: Mueller has **at least FOUR DOZEN questions** on an huge array of subjects he wants to ask Trump to probe his ties w/#Russia🇷🇺 & whether he committed #ObstructionOfJustice‼️ 1/

#MuellerIsComing

nytimes.com/2018/04/30/us/…
The NYTimes **obtained the list of Qs that Mueller wants to ask Trump during an interview.🤨

It's VERY hard to imagine that details of the ACTUAL questions would leak, unless the negotiations btwn Mueller & Trump's lawyers have BROKEN DOWN (as I was told a few months ago).🤔 2/
Overall, Mueller's open-ended Q's attempt to penetrate Trump's thinking (good luck!), to understand Trump's motivation for his crazed Twitter posts & to examine Trump's relationships w/his family and his closest advisers.🤨 3/
