And for a second day in a row, the President is using Executive Time to tweet, so far, he has tweeted 10 times in two hours and fifty-one minutes.
1. @OANN WOW!
The Washington Post reports that this “spying” claim has been, “roundly denied by U.S. and British intelligence officials when it surfaced two years ago.”
They also note the President’s tweet comes a day after he accepted, “an invitation from Queen Elizabeth II for a state visit to Britain,” in June.
2. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
CNN reports that the Supreme Court on Tuesday heard oral arguments regarding the Trump Administration adding the citizenship question on the 2020 census. The question has not been asked since 1950.
As CNN notes, “Every lower court to consider the issue has so far blocked the administration from adding a question about citizenship status to the census questionnaire, holding that Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, who has jurisdiction, exceeded his authority under federal law and the Constitution by doing so.”

3. we will be forced to close that section of the Border & call up the Military
4. We are now sending ARMED SOLDIERS to the Border.
On March 28th, President issued his first tweeted threatening to close the Southern Border.
On April 4th, he told gathered press he was giving Mexico a “one-year warning,” before closing the border.
As to the the incident that “better not happen again,” The Washington Post reports, that President Trump’s tweet comes after a April 13th incident in which, “two active-duty U.S. soldiers involved in the Defense Department’s mission to provide camera surveillance at the border were briefly detained and disarmed on U.S. soil, U.S. military officials said.”
U.S. military spokeswoman, Navy Capt. Pamela Kunze said in an email to the Post, “An inquiry by CBP and DOD revealed that the Mexican military members mistakenly believed the U.S. Army soldiers were south of the border with Mexico. However, the U.S. soldiers were appropriately in U.S. territory. Though they were south of the border fence, U.S. soldiers remained in U.S. territory, north of the actual border.”
For What it’s worth
5. I DID NOTHING WRONG…I would first head to the U.S. Supreme Court.
6. We waited for Mueller and WON, so now the Dems look to Congress as last hope!
I would first head to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Cornell Law School on Impeachment and Judicial Review.
Specifically, the Court rejected a claim that the Senate had departed from the meaning of the word “try” in the impeachment clause by relying on a special committee to take evidence, including testimony. But the Court’s “political question” analysis has broader application, and appears to place the whole impeachment process off limits to judicial review. (909)Law.Cornell.edu
Foot Note 909.
The Court listed “reasons why the Judiciary, and the Supreme Court in particular, were not chosen to have any role in impeachments,” and elsewhere agreed with the appeals court that “opening the door of judicial review to the procedures used by the Senate in trying impeachments would expose the political life of the country to months, or perhaps years, of chaos.” 506 U.S. at 234, 236.Law.Cornell.edu
The Mueller Report clearly spells out that the President of the United States attempted to Obstruct Justice thus abusing his powers of office.
7. DEMS IN CONGRESS MUST ACT NOW!
In order for immigration reform to take place, the Republicans must all “ACT NOW” it’s how it works in a Constitutional Republic.
8. there has NEVER been a President who has been more transparent.
9. WE WILL DRAIN THE SWAMP!
HAHAHAHA *gasp* HAHAHAHAHA
Transparent doesn’t mean what he thinks it means.
As the News Blender reported on Tuesday, the President directed Carl Kline to ignore a Congressional Subpoena that was issued by the House Oversight and Reform Committee regarding Kline’s work in granting Security Clearances over objections of his staff.
President Trump has demanded that his former White House Counsel Don McGahn not testify before the House regarding Mueller’s report.
As the News Blender reported President Trump is suing Congress to stop the Oversight Committee from getting President Trump’s business financials.
And that’s only half the story so far.
Yep, transparent =’s clear as mud.
DRAIN THE SWAMP =’s I’m tossing out red meat to my base. I have to guess he’s polling numbers post Mueller Report, have him on edge. Just a guess.
10. Just more Fake News.
On Tuesday during a phone interview the President spoke with The Washington Post.
Asked about those interviewed by Mueller and his team’s testimony before the Congressional Committees, he told the person he didn’t call but did call back that the White House Counsel’s Office, has not “made a final, final decision,” on President Trump asserting formally executive privilege.
He told “Bob” that he didn’t want, “people testifying to a party, because that is what they’re doing if they do this.”
President Trump feels that the Democrats, should be satisfied with what people told Mueller and his team, “I allowed my lawyers and all the people to go and testify to Mueller — and you know how I feel about that whole group of people that did the Mueller report.” I was so transparent; they testified for so many hours. They have all of that information that’s been given.”
The Washington Post reported on Wednesday that the President is now saying they will fight, “all the subpoenas,” issued by House Democrats.
TRUMP: "We're fighting all the subpoenas… they should be really focused on legislation… I am breaking down the swamp."— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) April 24, 2019
He then abruptly walks away from reporters. pic.twitter.com/QdkLFOEIAB
He believes the investigation ended with the Mueller Report and says that they should be going after “Crooked Hillary…”
So very transparent…
