Troll Culture Writ Large - a Know Your Enemy Thread.
For us old people that came of age before social media, troll culture has come as a shock. We didn't have a name for it. We did not have adequate defenses. It hurt and we did not know how to stop the pain. Blocking wasn't even a thing yet. When it became a thing, we felt guilt
My first real, active, aggressive troll was another lawyer I knew in real life. Smart, and in many ways of good cheer, I think he got "red pilled" in 4chan or similar, got mad at corruption, got Bitcoin curious and dropped off the edge.

Our lovely & brilliant friend @karolcummins can't provide the news tonight, so here I with the Nutshell.

The word of the day is: Treason.

"Treason against the U.S., shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort."

h/t @GregOlear

We're in an information and cyber war with Russia. In fact, yesterday, Sen. Warren and Burr released a report saying that very thing. Yet Trump time and again helps Putin. Trump-Ukraine is only an extension of Trump-Russia.
Treason 2

Today, Trump gave Kurdish Syria to Turkey (and thereby aid and comfort to ISIS and Russia).

More, Trump isn't cooperating with a law-abiding House inquiry. He thinks he is above the law.

Trump told Lavrov & Kislyak in the infamous May 2017 Oval Office meeting that he was unconcerned about Moscow’s interference in the U.S. election because the United States did the same in other countries, an assertion that prompted alarmed White House officials.

The same meeting in which Trump revealed highly classified information that exposed a source of intelligence on the Islamic State.

He also said during the meeting that firing FBI Director James B. Comey the day before had relieved “great pressure” on him.

A memorandum summarizing the meeting was limited to all but a few officials with the highest security clearances in an attempt to keep the president’s comments from being disclosed publicly.

It is not clear if the memo was placed into the secret system.
