It’s Monday.

It’s Earth Day.

President Trump has tweeted 5 times so far.

1. He thanks Fox News Show Host Positive Populist Steve Hilton.

The clip is 2 minutes and 03 seconds long and is Hilton’s opening monologue.

Hilton’s opening line: Welcome to the Next Revolution, I’m Steve Hilton and this is the home of positive populism. Pro-worker, pro-family, pro-community. Tonight the Democrats, the establishment media, the never-trumpers, all of them dividing America…


2. Big violation of Logan Act?

The Logan Act: 18 U.S. Code § 953.Private correspondence with foreign governments.

Cornell Law School explains “Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.”

The White House/State Department announced on Monday that the U.S. will not, “reissue Significant Reduction Exceptions (SREs) when they expire in early May,” The Press Secretary, Sarah Sanders said this decision, “is intended to bring Iran’s oil exports to zero, denying the regime its principal source of revenue.”


3. Only high crimes and misdemeanors…

Lawfare’s Quinta Jurecic on Sunday posted another chart on her view of Mueller’s teams findings on Obstruction of Justice.

She also pointed out in her article, “I should emphasize that the below is my interpretation of the evidence as Mueller seems to provide it—others may have different readings. (Richard Hoeg has provided a slightly different take, also available on Twitter.”

For the trillionth time say it with me, “collusion is made up, Mueller in his report clearly states there was no investigation regarding “collusion.”


4. He thanks Mark Levin.

The clip is 4 minutes plus.

IT’S STILL A COUP…

VOLUME 1 is 200 HUNDRED PAGES! WHY DO THEY NEED 200 HUNDRED PAGES AND 35 MILLION DOLLARS TO TELL US THERE WAS NO COLLUSION!

Volume 1 page 2 PDF page 10.

Mueller explains: But collusion is not a specific offense or theory of liability found in the United States Code, nor is it a term of art in federal criminal law. For those reasons, the Office’s focus in analyzing questions of joint criminal liability was on conspiracy as defined in federal law.

It would be nice if folks like Levin, while blasting the report, actually proved they read the report…


5. Congratulations!
