#AttorneyGeneral Barr is working to review the techniques used to investigate Trump’s 2016 campaign.

Here are 10 key questions that remain to be answered in the scandal that has become known as #Spygate (Thread 👇):

Commentary by @JasperFakkert theepochtimes.com/spygate-origin…
1. What was the role that @CIA and John Brennan’s ‘Interagency Task Force’ played?

Former CIA Director Brennan admitted that he passed intelligence received from the #UK on the Trump campaign to the @FBI with the intention of having them investigate it:
“It served as the basis…
… for the FBI investigation to determine whether such collusion [or] cooperation occurred.”

Notably, Brennan met with then-head of the #UK #Spy agency @GCHQ, Robert Hannigan, in #Washington in 2016. The meeting was unusual, since Hannigan’s US equivalent…

News Analysis 🔎 | Over the past month, there has been an inversion of people’s opinions of #RodRosenstein.

Those who praised him are now claiming he has been running interference for President Trump, while his critics have begun to reassess his actions. theepochtimes.com/as-rosenstein-…
#Rosenstein submitted his resignation letter to the president on April 29, with an effective date of May 11.

Rosenstein had previously discussed his intent to resign from his post when a new #AttorneyGeneral was confirmed, following the resignation of @JeffSessions
…After the appointment of #WilliamBarr as #AttorneyGeneral in February, however, #Rosenstein stayed on to assist #Barr in guiding him through the #MuellerReport.

Rosenstein had knowledge of the more intimate details of the case and its underlying focus.

Deputy AG #RodRosenstein removed then-Acting @FBI Director #AndrewMcCabe from the #Russia investigation in May 2017 upon appointing #SpecialCounsel #RobertMueller to take over the probe, according to a statement by @TheJusticeDept. (Read thread ⤵️)
theepochtimes.com/rosenstein-rem…
“[Rosenstein] in fact appointed…Robert Mueller, and directed that Mr. McCabe be removed from any participation in that investigation,” a DOJ spokesperson said.

The revelation is significant because, days before being removed, #McCabe opened an obstruction of justice…
…investigation into President Trump following the firing of then-FBI Director James @Comey. Just 5 days prior to this, he told the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence that he was not aware of any effort by the Trump administration to impede the @FBI’s #Russia probe.

THREAD: Let's talk about direct vs circumstantial evidence. The law treats them the same. @SenatorBurr says there's no "direct evidence of collusion" b/w Trump & Russians. Put aside the fact that @MarkWarner doesn't agree w/ this. What matters is if there's evidence of collusion.
2/ Every juror in America is told "Both direct and circumstantial evidence are acceptable types of evidence to prove or disprove the elements of a charge...and neither is necessarily more reliable than the other. NEITHER is entitled to any greater weight than the other."
3/ What is circumstantial evidence? Suppose I’m trying to prove that my son Nelson ate some freshly baked brownies that we made together. When I turned away, all of the brownies were out. When I turned back, one was gone...

We promise this is chocked full of insights:

Professors @alexgwhiting (@Harvard_Law) and @rgoodlaw (@nyulaw) team up:

"What Mueller’s Questions Reveal About the Future of the #RussiaInvestigation"

justsecurity.org/55562/muellers…
"Mueller’s questions about collusion show that it is likely that Mueller has already identified crimes involving collusion–such as a conspiracy to defraud the United States...–and Mueller is asking here only about Trump’s possible knowledge and personal involvement." /2
"The Mueller questions indicate that the House Intelligence Committee Majority completed its investigation into collusion prematurely ... and show that the majority’s report may have a short shelf life, soon to be overtaken by other revelations and events." /3

During #Comey's 1/6/17 at Trump Tower, @Comey told Trump that the Russians allegedly had tapes involving Trump & prostitutes at a Moscow hotel in 2013. Could these be the infamous #PeeTapes? #ComeyMemos 2/
Trump also praised #Comey on 1/6/17 for his handling of the #ClintonEmails investigation. @realDonaldTrump lavished praise on @Comey, indicating that Comey had conducted himself "honorably" and had a great reputation. #ComeyMemos 3/

#BREAKING Trump’s lead lawyer is out. John Dowd Resigns in Special Counsel Probe. This comes days after Fox News conspiracy theorist Joe diGenova joined legal team. (Dershowitz would complete the TV team, no?) nyti.ms/2GebgG9 #Mueller #RussiaInvestigation #TrumpRussia
Seems clear where Trump's now headed. He hired diGenova to FoxNewsify his defense. It may work on those already awash in toxic Fox propaganda. But it won't work on Mueller. He'll have to be fired+/Trumpists will manufacture some crisis to end Russia probe. WHERE RU GOP CONGRESS??
UGH John Bolton was seen at the WH today. Is another Fox News blowhard propagandist about to get hired by Trump…to replace McMaster as National Security Adviser?? @ColinKahl is right. We're all gonna die.

What is GOP Congress waiting for? Are they complicit w/ Russia too??

(Thread) I’ve made some disjointed comments and tweets on how the @DevinNunes memo is bullshit, let me put it all in one thread for easier consumption. The #FISAMemo is 100% bullshit.
First off I see the #ReleaseTheMemo and #QAnon crowd pushing this narrative that the dossier invalidates the entire investigation, it doesn’t. The investigation was actually triggered by Papadapolous drunkenly running his mouth to an Australian diplomat: dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5…
The memo itself even asserts this on Page 4. .@realDonaldTrump and the rest of his supporters appear to have ignored this part of the memo because it doesn’t support their narrative.

#WhyWeResist (THREAD) Renowned spiritual leader John Neuhas once said:
"Genuine #tolerance does not mean ignoring differences as if differences made no difference. Genuine tolerance means engaging differences w/in a bond of #civility & #respect." #CampaignforCivility 1/
Neuhas was not completely right. #Fascists, #WhiteSupremacists, Nazis, bigots, etc. lambast progressives for not tolerating their views. But hateful extremists use #tolerance merely as a tool to gain acceptance & obtain power. #CampaignforCivility #WhyWeResist 2/
Once fascists & bigots are in power, they vilify all who are different, all who dare to disagree. They only care about one thing: consolidating their power. #CampaignforCivility #WhyWeResist 3/

Thank you! A must read! #CaterPage is the #TrumpRussiaCollusion That’s the reason why @SpeakerRyan & @DevinNunes decided to make up the #MemoDay to discredit the @FBI #faisa @SpeakerRyan has the nerve to lie, saying that it has nothing to do w/ @FBI or the #RussiaInvestigation ?
himself introduced #CaterPage ‘s name as a member of his campaign, the @FBI was listening & knew that #CarterPage had ties to #Russia ! That’s their job, it had nothing to do with being biased. #CaterPage is a #traitor working w/ #Russia & w/ a #US candidate!???
Connected to #Russia somehow: #Manafort #Flynn #Papadopoulos #CaterPage #TrumpTowerMeeting #Wikileaks tweets #JaredKushner #DonaldTrumpJr #Sessions Let alone @GOP #RussianRepublicans who actually got money💰from #RussianDonors Sorry, this is not a #Dem conspiracy is a REALITY!
