1. IMO when @realDonaldTrump said today @CIA has not briefed him on #Khashoggi he was lying. More likely than not @Trump is saying he hasn't been been brief to deflect inquiry from him, appointees or someone like @DevinNunes who likely leaked it for him. This week Trump had 2 PDB
2. If someone at @CIA or a member of the intel committees leaked classified PDB material to the press that's a crime. A big one. Where's the leak investigation @WhiteHouse @FBIWFO? Remember what happened to @FoxNews' correspondent James Rosen? (@JamesRosenTV NB he blocks me).
3. DOJ was strongly criticized for Rosen's electronic surveillance though Rosen had been receiving illegally leaked NatSec secrets. Wiki: "Kim entered a guilty plea to a single felony count of disclosing classified national defense information to an unauthorized person, Rosen."
4. So should we presume the three @washingtonpost reporters who dropped the leak @shaneharris @gregpmiller @jdawsey1 are going to be subject to electronic surveillance? Maybe. Because what is more likely is they are assisting @realDonaldTrump cover up HIS CRIME.
5. I started to figure out what Trump likely did to Khashoggi in mid October. Here is my Oct 18 thread detailing possible criminal case against Trump Kushner and anyone else in the US who conspired with #MBS to kill #Kashoggi.
6. Recall I said "maybe" above regarding the Post team being subject to electronic surveillance? The reason is they may not know how a crime conspiracy draws you into a vortex. If they knew they were assisting the commission of a crime with Trump or his agent to publish a leak
7. they agreed to facilitate a crime. Arguably conspiracy. They may never be charged but they are open to surrviellance. But what if Mueller is looking at Trump dealings with MBS? Then a Post reporter is murdered by the subject of his investigation. Oh! What a tangled web . . .
8. I am a defender of the Constitution. I took the oath. studied Con Law as an honors undergrad, took it in Law School twice & won an Amjur. I'm the son of an AP war correspondent. Nobody has to tell me about the First Amendment's major role in keeping us free. So Trolls beware.
9. But for reporters who are manipulated by a @WhiteHouse to cover up a murder conspiracy there is no overriding 1st amendment issue. If they are in fact now conspiring with the persons who conspired to kill their own colleague they are beneath contempt IMO. Trump will be gone.
10. There is no statute of limitations for murder. And in exactly 795 days Trump will cease desecrating our @WhiteHouse at noon. Then a lawyer like me will be the new AG. And that person is going to know what you did with Trump. @JonLemire @MaddowBlog @amjoyshow @MalcolmNance
