OMG, JHC in a chicken basket.

CHECK. OUT. THIS. TIMELINE!!
Right after the election, Obama warns Trump about Flynn:
bbc.com/news/world-us-…
December 1, 2016: Kushner tries to set up back channel with Russians by asking to use THEIR secure facilities
washingtonpost.com/world/national…
Early December 2016: Russians reportedly arrested/killed (h/t @lmkarin for jogging my memory on this)
usatoday.com/story/news/201…
December 2016: Kushner instructs Flynn to sabotage US policy; McFarland advises Flynn to contact Kislyak (reminder: McFarland is a former FOX commentator + NIXON veteran who hadn't worked in government in DECADES)
nymag.com/daily/intellig…
December 29, 2016: KT McFarland sends email saying the Russians had thrown election to Trump.
businessinsider.com/emails-kt-mcfa…
January 5, 2017: Susan Rice observes and documents a conversation between Obama and Comey.  The one she later goes on to email herself about at the last possible minute on Inauguration Day.  Knowing that it can later be accessed as needed via the GSA.  thehill.com/homenews/senat…
The one where she says: "From a national security perspective, however, President Obama said he wants to be sure that, as we engage with the incoming [Trump] team, we are mindful to ascertain if there is any reason that we cannot share information fully as it relates to Russia."
They knew, they knew THEY F*CKING KNEW, and laid the groundwork accordingly!!
January 6, 2017: Trump, McFarland, Pence, Flynn, Priebus, Pompeo and Bossert briefed by Brennan, Clapper, Comey.

January 6, 2017: DNI releases this report
dni.gov/files/document…
Now before I show you the next part, think about this - suppose in the briefing they gave Trump information in such a way that if he ran to Putin immediately--BEFORE HE'S TAKEN OFFICE, MIND YOU--what options would he have?
He'd have the press.

January 10, 2017: Buzzfeed publishes the Dossier.  Buzzfeed, which shares ad tech with multiple Russian sites as well as URLs on the .tk domain.
buzzfeed.com/archive/2017/1…
January 12, 2017: Massive obfuscation about the dossier, and how exactly it got published.
washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/w…
January 25, 2017: Reports of December arrests pushed out by Russia
lawfareblog.com/blowing-source…
NOW, LOOK AT EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS ON JANUARY 26, 2017!!!
January 26, 2017: Another FSB officer reportedly arrested
rferl.org/a/russia-fsb-a…
January 26, 2017: Sally Yates warns WH about Flynn
businessinsider.com/trump-michael-…
January 26, 2017: Mass resignations at State Dept.
washingtonpost.com/news/josh-rogi…
January 27, 2017: Trump asks Comey to swear loyalty; asks if he’s being investigated
nytimes.com/2017/05/11/us/…
January 28, 2017: Flynn, Trump, Pence, Priebus, Bannon, Spicer call Putin.  On a SATURDAY.
npr.org/sections/paral…
Later THAT NIGHT - A *SATURDAY NIGHT,* Bannon is elevated to the National Security Council.
nytimes.com/2017/01/29/us/…
Why do I keep pointing out that it was a Saturday night? Because Trump - who spends copious amounts of time golfing and tweeting - was mysteriously VERY motivated to do some work, make phone calls, and create and sign an executive order on a SATURDAY.
On MONDAY, (January 30, 2017), Sally Yates is fired.
cnn.com/2017/01/30/pol…
Forgot to include one huge, important detail - the same day KT McFarland sends that email, OBAMA does this: theguardian.com/us-news/2016/d…
And from Nov. 2016 through Feb. 2017, there's this
independent.co.uk/news/world/eur…
If you want to share elsewhere: threadreaderapp.com/thread/1020340…
Sorry - one last HUGE thing: who recommended KT McFarland for Deputy NSC? Maria Butina's live-in target, Paul Erickson. msnbc.com/rachel-maddow/…
