@realDonaldTrump Another poll that was conducted by #FoxNews and released on Sunday shows that 50 percent of Americans believe the Trump campaign coordinated with Russia.
@realDonaldTrump Pundits TRIED to put the toothpaste back in the tube after you admitted to the world that you'd gleefully accept ILLEGAL help from a foreign country.

Nope - that doesn't equate to GPS oppo research, try as you might to convince otherwise.…
@realDonaldTrump Former Brit intel agent, Steele, created the dossier on behalf of Fusion GPS, a US-BASED oppo research firm that was hired to work for the Clinton campaign AFTER it was originally hired by a CONSERVATIVE website.

Steele WASN'T connected to a foreign govt. & he reported to FBI.

Now that the pool of contenders seems to have stabilized for the moment, we decided to reanalyze the accounts retweeting each of 23 Democratic candidates. Time range considered: May 31st - June 10th, 2019.

cc: @ZellaQuixote
First, some overall statistics. The number of accounts retweeting each candidate departs from recent polling in one significant way: @JoeBiden is well behind @BernieSanders, @ewarren, @KamalaHarris (and others) in terms of Twitter amplification.

We didn't find much automation.
Media websites most frequently linked by accounts retweeting each candidate. Layout indicates the degree of similarity between the media diets of each group - candidates whose pie charts are closer together have audiences sharing similar sets of news sources.

THREAD. #MuellerReport, Vol2, Pg33. On Jan 27 (2017), the President called FBI Director Comey and invited him to dinner that evening. Priebus recalled that before the dinner, he told the President something like “don’t talk about Russia, whatever you do”. McGahn has previously

1. Less than two weeks after inauguration I feared for national security so I filed a FOIA request with @TheJusticeDept to find out who had my brother's old job. Today was the first time I recall @maddow or anyone on @msnbc mentioning Jody Hunt. That's who it was.
2. He was like Sally Yates. Career justice. So I slept better. When Hunt was replaced by Matt Whitaker it started sleepless nights. So when @maddow showed the list of FBI 302s the @HouseJudiciary was seeking I saw Jody Hunt on the list. I looked at the #MuellerReport and

Here are the top 4 take-aways from the #MuellerReport testimony before the House Judiciary Committee today:

1. Trumpgate is Watergate all over again.

Nixon WH Counsel John Dean: “It’s quite striking and startling to me that history is repeating itself. And with a vengeance."
2. There is more than sufficient evidence to indict Trump for multiple counts of obstruction of justice.

Former US Atty Barbara McQuade: "If anyone other than a sitting president committed this conduct, that person would be charged with crimes.”
3. Trump's attempts to obstruct the investigation into his collusion with Russia was more than just a cover-up.

McQuade: “By seeking to curtail the [Russia] investigation, President Trump committed an act that threatened the national security of this country.”

One must feel sorry for pathological partisans who are so out of sort with the factual world that they must be trapped in a world of lies, distractions and convoluted delusions of gross superiority. Today I read a garbage article from a "Robert Romano" who writes for DailyTorch
In his article, this Robert Romano fellow hopes that William Barr will "take a second look at the DNC server"- "The FBI apparently never took possession of the server," he says. Yes, because there were 140 of them. The FBI would never have done so. It isn't a reasonable task.
He continues, "The FBI was given a copy of the server", no...that is not what happened. This shows Romano does not understand how this works and yet he continues that Crowdstrike provided "the forensic images of the DNC systems to the FBI" These lines show he doesn't get it.

"There is evidence that at least one purpose of #Trump´s conduct toward #Sessions was to have #Sessions assume control of the #Russia Investigation and restrict its scope"

Volume 2, Page 112 of #MuellerReport


"Substantial evidence indicates that #Trump´s effort to have #Session´s limit scope of #MuellerInvestigation to future election interference was to prevent further investigations into himself and his campaigns behavior"

1/ We asked every Texan in Congress: Have you read the Mueller report?

We also asked: Does the report warrant any legislative action? If so, what? #MuellerReport

News Analysis 🔎| The #MuellerReport appears to have been carefully worded by lawyers working under former #SpecialCounsel #RobertMueller, and perhaps #Mueller himself, in a manner designed to inflict political damage on President Donald Trump.

Thread 👇…
What makes these examples particularly notable is that access to the underlying material used in the #MuellerReport is extremely limited.

In instances where information is publicly available, they highlight inconsistencies, raising concerns that the report may be hiding more.

"Did I say I have a great memory or one of the best in the world?" Trump asked for clarification, to which he was told he'd said he had "one of the best in the world."

(#MuellerReport, Vol. II, pp. 115-116)
fyi, I felt it necessary to differentiate between actual quotes listed in the report vs described.
For example, "bullshit" is quoted, but the rest of Trump's dialogue shown above is based on what Porter described to the SCO.
Also, this thread won't follow along with the actual outline/structure of the #MuellerReport. I'm only focusing on illustrating the major events for now, which means we could be jumping back and forth between volumes and such.
Cool? Cool.

The Russian government interfered in the 2016 presidential election in sweeping and systematic fashion.

Evidence of Russian government operations began to surface in mid-2016.

In June, the Democratic National Committee and its cyber response team publicly announced that Russian hackers had compromised its computer network.
