THREAD 1: covers the correction-worthy ERRORS in the May 16 @nytimes "Crossfire Hurricane" article
THREAD 2 (this one) covers all of the things that were legit, never-before-reported BOMBSHELLS, but buried/de-emphasized by the NYT
The NYT drops into paragraph 42 that there many have been additional spies other than Stefan Halper (who they don't name but leak biographical information they know can identify him)
This is the second huge story in para 42, which has almost no details & is never mentioned again. NSL's come with gag orders & even JUDGES can't expose them except for limited reasons...
This one is in para 68 - whoever leaked it is confirming someone probably committed a felony or major DOJ/FBI rule violation on Oct 31
It was known that Yates, Boente and Rosenstein had signed the FISA warrants on the DOJ side, but not WHICH ORDER. This was only known to DOJ and Congressional investigators
Why did the FBI have to break any "protocol"? What are they? Exactly when did Downer first talk to someone about this conversations with PAPADOUPOLOS? Is Downer ever going to talk?
This is right in the headline, but totally downplayed. Why did the FBI, which should have been investigating RUSSIA, ONLY investigate the Trump campaign?
I'll post THREAD 3 soon, which is going to go through the @nytimes article line by line (yep - at least 50 tweets). You'll see a dozen more errors, misrepresentations & outright falsehoods are in this embarrassment to journalism
