1. The @GOP have to be looking at the polling data and holding their breath. The @realDonaldTrump white supremacist base may never care that @Trump conspired with #Russia. But an overwhelming majority of Americans do care. #Barr may have overplayed Trump's hand and
2. the result may be the end of Trump's presidency through a fast impeachment trial.

Every trial lawyer knows you don't want to let the jury see your client get caught in a big lie. For better or worse, Barr is acting like Trump's own attorney and he walked Trump out on
3. a limb by manipulating a quote from #MuellersReport to cleverly say there was no collusion. But anyone who knows the relevant federal laws knows that Trump campaign committed numerous crimes related to Russia. Going to, & then not reporting, June 9 meeting were two fed crimes.
4. But panicked Barr pushed Trump's chips all-in holding ten high. Barr's plan now is to try to hide the report. I expect within two weeks an unredacted copy will be in the chambers of a federal judge. If Barr is obstructing he will be exposed. And if he's hiding Trump crimes
5. the American jury will turn not only on Barr and Trump but on every @SenateGOP @HouseGOP member who backed the Russian mole. Some will stay with Trump to the bitter end knowing that the white supremacist base that sent them are fine with treason. But I'm betting the
6. 2020 @SenateGOP class will start to step away from the barricades and let the process commence. If it drags on they won't be able to recover before the election. As soon as being a GOP supporter is locked in as being disloyal the GOP vote will be depressed to the point that
7. safe Senate seats for people like @BenSasse and @TomCottonAR will start to move in play. Small states like Wyoming could see swings that might even end @SenJohnBarrasso's career. American people who aren't fine with treason will rise up and vote the
8. the treasonous GOP out of office. 2018 already set the state to kill many @HouseGOP gerrymanders so by 2021 it is possible that there could be 60 Democrats in the Senate but the un-gerrymandered House GOP could fall to fewer than a 150 seats.
9. If Trump reverse-coattails let @TheDemocrats new @WhiteHouse occupant have 60 Democrats Senate, SCOTUS can expect four more liberals. Barr should not have tried to hide anything. Now he has a jury just waiting to see the report. And if Barr lied, Trump & the GOP are toast.
10. At the risk of giving the other side good advice, the only play that Barr has that doesn't end up destroying the GOP is to release the full report on April 2. But he's a party ideologue and frankly not that bright. His foolish memo proved Mr. Wolf's in over his head. 😎
