Wednesday and Thursday Trump Tweets

Wednesday 

Alice Marie Johnson born on May 30th, 1955, was charged with conspiracy to possess cocaine, attempted possession of cocaine, and money laundering. She began serving her life sentence in 1996, according to the website Can-Do  they began advocating for her clemency in 2014, when President Obama launched the Clemency Project of 2014. Johnson only one of three women not granted clemency of the twenty-five Can-Do advocated for, was shocking to the organization, as she is a first-time offered. According to the same website, Johnson is a model inmate.

Rep Dan Donovan (R-NY) voted no on the Republican Tax Cut Bill. In December 2017, Donovan released a statement explaining his no vote.

The statement explains that while he was eager to support tax cuts that would, “put more money in the pockets of overburdened taxpayers and spur job creation,” that he was unable to support the republican bill because the bill would increase taxes for many of his “Staten Island and Brooklyn constituents.” He concludes his statement by saying that while New York is a high taxed state and that he hopes the bill will serve as a wake-up call to politicians who have been taxing and spending with little regard for the taxpayer, he doesn’t feel people should be even more penalized:

“But that still doesn’t make it right to penalize people even more. My responsibility and allegiance is to the people who sent me here, and I will not support a tax hike on the people I represent.”

Donovan is in a heated republican primary against former Republican rep Michael Grimm. Michael Grimm in 2014 plead guilty to causing the filing of a false and fraudulent tax return via the DOJ statement in 2014, “Grimm admits to concealing over $900,000 in Gross Income and Lying Under Oath While a Member of Congress.”

Thursday 

NBC reported in December of 2017 that in July of 2016 after candidate Trump became the presidential nominee for the RNC, that he was warned along with Hillary Clinton the DNC nominee, “that foreign adversaries, including Russia, would probably try to spy on and infiltrate his campaign.”

Of note this is after Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner met in Trump Tower, with a now known Russian operative, hoping to uncover dirt on Hillary Clinton. None of the Trump Team’s inner circle told the FBI about the meeting.

In December of 2017 Brian Ross citing one anonymous source reported that Michael Flynn was prepared to testify that as candidate for President, Donald Trump told him to contact Russia. This turned out to be false. ABC news suspended Brian Ross for four weeks without pay and issued a statement, via CNN,  “We deeply regret and apologize for the serious error we made yesterday. The reporting conveyed by Brian Ross during the special report had not been fully vetted through our editorial standards process. As a result of our continued reporting over the next several hours ultimately we determined the information was wrong and we corrected the mistake on air and online.”
