THREAD: some old Barrack research. When Rick Gates was cooperating in the Manafort case, the judge said he was helping with several other ongoing matters. I’d be willing to bet Barrack and Al-Malik were among them.
Elliott Broidy, who has been pardoned, was another one.
Barrack was also being investigated for fishy shit in Qatar.
And if Gates assisted the feds in the inaugural probe, that could spell bad news for people wrapped up in that ongoing investigation if Barrack cooperates.

THREAD: This is my Glock 23. (There are many like it, but this one is mine. HT @vincentdonofrio). It does not define me. I surrendered it to the sheriff after the Pulse shooting, but due to threats from an abusive ex, I re-acquired it for protection. 1/
I do not devote my life to it. I welcomed the background check. I would not sell it to anyone who didn’t have to pass one. I do not require a high capacity magazine to use it, nor do I require a device that allows me to shoot more bullets per minute b/c I’m a good marksman. 2/
I keep it in a biometric safe that only opens with my fingerprint. I would happily modify the gun to have a biometric trigger. I’m trained on it earned an expert pistol designation from the military. I am capable of aiming and firing & do not need a wide spray to hit my target 3/

THREAD: Will Weisselberg and the trumps face federal tax charges? So this is fun... remember when the post office boat cops arrested bannon and friends on their yacht for defrauding donors in their scheme to build the wall? 1/
Fun fact, that boat was partially owned by Guo Wengui who bankrolled GETTR which was immediately hacked and is stupid, and he was also targeted by Broidy and a guy from the Fugees in their crimes, but I digress... 2/
ANYHOW, one of the guys arrested on the yacht was indicted on federal tax charges and wire fraud (did you know if you lie on your taxes and e-file them, that's wire fraud?) His name is Kolfage and he faces up to 20 years for this (so like 3 years). 3/…

THREAD: TRUMP JUST BECAME MORE OF A NATIONAL SECURITY THREAT THAN HE ALREADY WAS: As most of us know by know, the trump org was indicted on ten counts yesterday, and the CFO Allen Weisselberg was indicted in 15 counts 1/
Despite what the trump org lawyers and donald's crotch goblins are saying - that all Weisselberg did wrong was that he failed to report a mercedes benz to the IRS - these are serious crimes and include conspiracy, fraud, and falsifying business records. 2/
As @kurteichenwald explains here: an org indictment could mean trump lenders will likely call in their loans early, especially if the org falsified business records as count 12 shows it did. So what does this have to do with NATIONAL SECURITY? 3/

THREAD: regarding the @SenateDems ability to issue subpoenas - apropos of the recent call from @SenatorDurbin and @SenSchumer for Barr and Sessions to testify. The rules for committees issuing subpoenas are a bit dodgy under the power sharing agreement in the senate. 1/
It appears that the only committee than can issue a subpoena without Republican sign off is the Homeland Security & Government Affairs Subcommittee on Investigations. 2/
Most other committees, including the Senate Judiciary, would require a majority vote OR the sign off of the ranking (Republican) member. The ranking member on the senate judiciary is @ChuckGrassley 3/

I wonder if we could convince a couple of Republican senators (to make up for Manchin and Sinema) to vote to “mini-nuke” the filibuster only for voting rights bills since voter suppression bills prevent some republicans from voting, too. Then pass the JLVRA. 1/
Yes I want to kill the entire filibuster but Manchin and Sinema aren’t going to vote to do anything to the filibuster. And yes I know democratic voters - specifically black voters - are far more disenfranchised by voter suppression bills than Republican voters. 2/
And yes I think we should still keep the pressure on Manchin and Sinema. And yes I know there are other bills we need to pass. And yes I know we 9000 other issues to address. And no, I’m not surprised about Manchin or Sinema. I think that covers most of the replies I’ll get. END
