@qAnon5_5 @Pacoluismonta9a @judgingurn @Mike69740911 @suzy_swears @Rosie @1980Dorothy @h8Wankmaggot45 1/ Here’s why I have problems with trump: I had some HOPE when Trump said he would be Presidential but he is untrustworthy and petty. He name calls like a teenage BULLY.
@qAnon5_5 @Pacoluismonta9a @judgingurn @Mike69740911 @suzy_swears @Rosie @1980Dorothy @h8Wankmaggot45 2/ I have lost all respect for Trump because in 993 days, President Trump has made 13,435 false or misleading claims:

washingtonpost.com/graphics/polit…

Note: There are links to each claim with detailed analysis.
@qAnon5_5 @Pacoluismonta9a @judgingurn @Mike69740911 @suzy_swears @Rosie @1980Dorothy @h8Wankmaggot45 3/ Trump’s administration calls the false or misleading statement “ALTERNATIVE facts.” What? This is an interesting spin on the truth. Let’s try this with our family and employer and see how it plays out. I’ll go out on a limb and say that it won’t end well for either one of us.
@qAnon5_5 @Pacoluismonta9a @judgingurn @Mike69740911 @suzy_swears @Rosie @1980Dorothy @h8Wankmaggot45 4/ Regarding the Mueller investigation, why do you think that Trump had said that he could PARDON himself? What CRIMES need to be pardoned?
@qAnon5_5 @Pacoluismonta9a @judgingurn @Mike69740911 @suzy_swears @Rosie @1980Dorothy @h8Wankmaggot45 5/ Cohen is in JAIL for making illegal campaign and corp. contributions "at the direction of the CANDIDATE" and with the "purpose of influencing the election." So, Trump is an unindicted co-conspirator in the CRIMINAL complaint due to DOJ guidance on indicting a sitting president
@qAnon5_5 @Pacoluismonta9a @judgingurn @Mike69740911 @suzy_swears @Rosie @1980Dorothy @h8Wankmaggot45 6/ Regarding an argument that Cohen is a known liar, IMPORTANT: read the plea agreement: Prosecutors wrote that they could BACK UP Cohen's admissions through evidence obtained from the FBI's raids on Cohen's home, office, and hotel room.
@qAnon5_5 @Pacoluismonta9a @judgingurn @Mike69740911 @suzy_swears @Rosie @1980Dorothy @h8Wankmaggot45 7/ The EVIDENCE, they wrote, included documents, electronic devices, audio recordings made by Cohen, text messages, messages sent on encrypted apps, phone records, and emails. Document: Michael Cohen Plea Agreement - Lawfare
@qAnon5_5 @Pacoluismonta9a @judgingurn @Mike69740911 @suzy_swears @Rosie @1980Dorothy @h8Wankmaggot45 8/ From Vol. 2, pg. 8 of the Mueller Report, we can clearly see that the Office of Special Counsel believes that CONGRESS can and SHOULD exercise its “AUTHORITY to prohibit a President’s CORRUPT use of his authority to protect the integrity of the administration of justice.”
@qAnon5_5 @Pacoluismonta9a @judgingurn @Mike69740911 @suzy_swears @Rosie @1980Dorothy @h8Wankmaggot45 9/ They specifically say that Congress “may apply the OBSTRUCTION LAWS to the President’s CORRUPT exercise of the powers of the office,” and that doing so would “ACCORD with our constitutional system of checks and balances and the principle that NO person is above the LAW.”
@qAnon5_5 @Pacoluismonta9a @judgingurn @Mike69740911 @suzy_swears @Rosie @1980Dorothy @h8Wankmaggot45 10/ Regarding COLLUSION, see Pg 17 of the Mueller report: "the investigation established that SEVERAL individuals affiliated with the Trump Campaign LIED to the Office, and to Congress, about their interactions with Russian-affiliated individuals and related matters.
@qAnon5_5 @Pacoluismonta9a @judgingurn @Mike69740911 @suzy_swears @Rosie @1980Dorothy @h8Wankmaggot45 11/ Former deputy campaign chairman Rick Gates testified that he was riding from Trump Tower to LaGuardia Airport in NY in mid-2016 when Trump took a phone call from his longtime associate Stone. The pair discussed WikiLeaks' planned release of hacked Democratic emails.
@qAnon5_5 @Pacoluismonta9a @judgingurn @Mike69740911 @suzy_swears @Rosie @1980Dorothy @h8Wankmaggot45 12/ "After Mr. Trump got off the phone with Mr. Stone, what did Mr. Trump say?" prosecutor Aaron Zelinsky asked Gates. "He indicated more information would be coming," Gates responded in testimony at Stone's criminal trial in Washington.
@qAnon5_5 @Pacoluismonta9a @judgingurn @Mike69740911 @suzy_swears @Rosie @1980Dorothy @h8Wankmaggot45 13/ The call happened days after WikiLeaks' first release on July 22, 2016, of emails the Russian military hacked from the Democratic National Committee. Gates said two US Secret Service agents also witnessed the call.
@qAnon5_5 @Pacoluismonta9a @judgingurn @Mike69740911 @suzy_swears @Rosie @1980Dorothy @h8Wankmaggot45 14/ Perjury, anyone? Hmm? That’s a big deal because in sworn written answers to special counsel Robert Mueller, Trump claimed he couldn’t recall doing any such thing.
@qAnon5_5 @Pacoluismonta9a @judgingurn @Mike69740911 @suzy_swears @Rosie @1980Dorothy @h8Wankmaggot45 15/ “I do not recall discussing WikiLeaks with him,” Trump wrote. “Nor do I recall being aware of Mr. Stone having discussed WikiLeaks with individuals associated with my campaign.” Trump says he has he had “one of the great memories of all time.”
@qAnon5_5 @Pacoluismonta9a @judgingurn @Mike69740911 @suzy_swears @Rosie @1980Dorothy @h8Wankmaggot45 1/ “When asked for information, Richard Nixon chose not to comply and the Congress back in that time said you're taking impeachment away from us," Graham said in 1998.
@qAnon5_5 @Pacoluismonta9a @judgingurn @Mike69740911 @suzy_swears @Rosie @1980Dorothy @h8Wankmaggot45 2/ "The day Richard Nixon failed to answer that subpoena is that day that he was subject to impeachment because he took the power from Congress over the impeachment process away from Congress and he became the judge and jury."
@qAnon5_5 @Pacoluismonta9a @judgingurn @Mike69740911 @suzy_swears @Rosie @1980Dorothy @h8Wankmaggot45 3/ Graham, during the Clinton's Senate Impeachment trial, noted that "you don't even have to be convicted of a crime to lose your job in this constitutional republic if this body determines that your conduct as a public official is clearly out of bounds in your role."
@qAnon5_5 @Pacoluismonta9a @judgingurn @Mike69740911 @suzy_swears @Rosie @1980Dorothy @h8Wankmaggot45 4/ He also argued that "impeachment is not about punishment. Impeachment is about cleansing the office. Impeachment is about restoring honor and integrity to the office."
@qAnon5_5 @Pacoluismonta9a @judgingurn @Mike69740911 @suzy_swears @Rosie @1980Dorothy @h8Wankmaggot45 5/ Get your head around this if you can: Sen. Lindsey Graham unveiled a resolution condemning House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry, on the grounds that it has proceeded to date largely behind closed doors.
@qAnon5_5 @Pacoluismonta9a @judgingurn @Mike69740911 @suzy_swears @Rosie @1980Dorothy @h8Wankmaggot45 6/ Graham is the man who, as a Republican member of the House in 1999, voted articles of impeachment against Bill Clinton out of the Judiciary Committee almost entirely on the basis of the behind-closed-doors investigation of one Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr.
@qAnon5_5 @Pacoluismonta9a @judgingurn @Mike69740911 @suzy_swears @Rosie @1980Dorothy @h8Wankmaggot45 1/ Ever since the British invented impeachment in the 1400s, abuse of official power for personal gain has been on the short list of undeniably impeachable offenses in Great Britain and the United States.
@qAnon5_5 @Pacoluismonta9a @judgingurn @Mike69740911 @suzy_swears @Rosie @1980Dorothy @h8Wankmaggot45 2/ The second article of impeachment approved by the House Judiciary Committee against President Richard Nixon charged him with abuse of power.
@qAnon5_5 @Pacoluismonta9a @judgingurn @Mike69740911 @suzy_swears @Rosie @1980Dorothy @h8Wankmaggot45 3/ Nixon misused his domestic authority as President to get dirt on his political foes, and then used the powers of the federal government to try to cover it up.
@qAnon5_5 @Pacoluismonta9a @judgingurn @Mike69740911 @suzy_swears @Rosie @1980Dorothy @h8Wankmaggot45 4/ But Nixon's conduct was penny-ante compared to Trump's. Trump didn't cover up a second-rate burglary by a group of inept "plumbers" looking for dirt on Democrats.
@qAnon5_5 @Pacoluismonta9a @judgingurn @Mike69740911 @suzy_swears @Rosie @1980Dorothy @h8Wankmaggot45 5/ Rather, he appears to have wielded the entire economic, military and moral authority of a great nation to, effectively, extort another democratically elected head of state.
@qAnon5_5 @Pacoluismonta9a @judgingurn @Mike69740911 @suzy_swears @Rosie @1980Dorothy @h8Wankmaggot45 6/ Leaving aside the question of impeachment, this episode must count as one of the most discreditable things any American President has ever done.
@qAnon5_5 @Pacoluismonta9a @judgingurn @Mike69740911 @suzy_swears @Rosie @1980Dorothy @h8Wankmaggot45 7/ Prior Presidents have been cruel or mean-spirited, bigoted or shortsighted, and sometimes exercised terrible judgment. And every President makes decisions with at least one eye on the political consequences.
@qAnon5_5 @Pacoluismonta9a @judgingurn @Mike69740911 @suzy_swears @Rosie @1980Dorothy @h8Wankmaggot45 8/ But I know of no comparable case where a President baldly, consciously misused the power of the whole nation for his own purely private political benefit, without even a credible claim that it was in the national interest.
@qAnon5_5 @Pacoluismonta9a @judgingurn @Mike69740911 @suzy_swears @Rosie @1980Dorothy @h8Wankmaggot45 9/ Frank Bowman III is a law professor at the University of Missouri.
