1/ Something Big is happening... 10:11PM👉the timing is everything here... this is an oddly late hour for Buzzfeed to put out such an explosive report co-authored by a Pulitzer Prize winner for investigative journalism... (Cormier pulitzer.org/winners/leonor…)
2/ 10:12 PM - a minute later (Buzzfeed tweet was 10:15PM EST but article went live at 10:11) @AdamSchiff says this:
3/ 10:23, MSNBC reporting on it and @ChrisMurphyCT says “before it’s too late” 👇 Chris Murphy - 10:23
4/ By 10:45 PM @thehill calls for Trump’s impeachment:
5/ Just minutes BEFORE @BuzzFeedNews dropped their explosive piece, the orange idiot tweets this at 10:03PM about the Steele Dossier... Buzzfeed was the first to publish the dossier publicly, opening the doors for other news orgs to talk about it
6/ Curious that “POTUS” would tweet about the Dossier - the one Buzzfeed first made public - just minutes before Buzzfeed drops this bomb re Trump telling Cohen to lie to Congress. This, ladies and gents, is an idiot trying and failing to get ahead of a story 👎
7/ All I’m saying is, in this new world of “this is it, he’s going to jail/getting impeached” stories daily, the timing of everything I stated above makes THIS time stand out. Let’s all watch, because it might get real interesting. Not making predictions and I could be wrong.
8/ 12:00AM (give or take a few Mins) @washingtonpost is talking about article 🧐
9/ 12:03AM @EricHolder says if report true, impeachment must begin ... now we wait for other news orgs to corroborate (if there is a “there” here”)
11/ Now @JoaquinCastrotx calling for impeachment if Buzzfeed report is true 😎
14/ and @SpicyFiles takes it home - and bingo was his name-o 🔥
15/ NOW House says they are taking Buzzfeed report seriously:
17/ Not predicting. I’m only saying the big thing IMO is timing. 1.) Buzzfeed’s article leads to 2.) GIANT drumbeat from politicians, lawyers - this feels different. I could be wrong and I may be. But watching and wanted to create real time thread 💙
19/ Trump had 5 hours to respond to Buzzfeed
20/ re above and below tweet: He knew of Buzzfeed at 5:15, Jarrett story people think Steele tweet is about came out at 6:30. Which makes me believe that Jarrett/Dossier tweet was about Buzzfeed and Buzzfeed alone in a failed attempt to discredit 😎
21/ Orange Stay Puft Marshmallow Man seems scared.... also he’s still incredibly bad at trying to stay ahead of a story:
22/ You know it’s bad when you’re losing Fox News and the White House press secretary wont answer the simple question as to whether or not Trump directed Cohen to lie to Congress 😐
23/ and THIS sums up the point of the whole thread - this isn’t about Buzzfeed, it’s about what is happening now and what the politicians are saying TODAY - this is something big. END/:
Bonus @ninaandtito lays out what I think is big here very well:
