The President has tweeted 14 times.
Know those times that the President takes to Twitter to push, push, and push some more crap on the American people?
And then as a blogger that try’s hard to unpack all the tweets I’m stuck?
Today is another one of those days.
General Michael Flynn, the 33 year war hero who has served with distinction, has not retained a good lawyer, he has retained a GREAT LAWYER, Sidney Powell. Best Wishes and Good Luck to them both!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 13, 2019
Unrelated to Russia, Russia, Russia (although the Radical Left doesn’t use the name Russia anymore since the issuance of the Mueller Report), House Committee now plays the seldom used “Contempt” card on our great A.G. & Sec. of Commerce – this time on the Census. Dems play a…..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 13, 2019
…..much tougher game than the Republicans did when they had the House Majority. Republicans will remember! “This has already been argued before the U.S. Supreme Court, but the House doesn’t want to wait. This is a common thread between all of the Committees – do whatever you…— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 13, 2019
….can to embarrass the Trump Administration (and Republicans), attack the Trump Administration. This is campaigning by the Dems.” Attorney David Bruno. So true! In the meantime they are getting NO work done on Drug Pricing, Infrastructure & many other things.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 13, 2019
“Congress cannot Impeach President Trump (did nothing wrong) because if they did they would be putting themselves above the law. The Constitution provides criteria for Impeachment – treason, bribery, high crimes & misdemeanors. Unless there is compelling evidence, Impeachment…— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 13, 2019
….is not Constitutionally Permissable.” Alan Dershowitz, Constitutional Lawyer— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 13, 2019
The Dems fight us at every turn – in the meantime they are accomplishing nothing for the people! They have gone absolutely “Loco,” or Unhinged, as they like to say!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 13, 2019
I meet and talk to “foreign governments” every day. I just met with the Queen of England (U.K.), the Prince of Wales, the P.M. of the United Kingdom, the P.M. of Ireland, the President of France and the President of Poland. We talked about “Everything!” Should I immediately….— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 13, 2019
….call the FBI about these calls and meetings? How ridiculous! I would never be trusted again. With that being said, my full answer is rarely played by the Fake News Media. They purposely leave out the part that matters.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 13, 2019
When Senator @MarkWarnerVA spoke at length, and in great detail, about extremely negative information on me, with a talented entertainer purporting to be a Russian Operative, did he immediately call the FBI? NO, in fact he didn’t even tell the Senate Intelligence Committee of….— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 13, 2019
….which he is a member. When @RepAdamSchiff took calls from another person, also very successfully purporting to be a Russian Operative, did he call the FBI, or even think to call the FBI? NO! The fact is that the phony Witch Hunt is a giant scam where Democrats,…— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 13, 2019
….and other really bad people, SPIED ON MY CAMPAIGN! They even had an “insurance policy” just in case Crooked Hillary Clinton and the Democrats lost their race for the Presidency! This is the biggest & worst political scandal in the history of the United States of America. Sad!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 13, 2019
Former National Security Adviser for President Trump Michael Flynn was fired from that post in early 2017, shortly after President Trump was sworn in as President.
In January of 2017 just four days after he start as National Security Adviser he was interviewed by the FBI who was investigating Russian interference with the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election.
The Mueller Report explains that Flynn lied during that January interview. Flynn plead guilty to lying to Federal Investigators in December 2018. Currently he awaits sentencing. (report page 194 PDF page 202).
Last Friday U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan allowed Flynn’s attorney’s Robert Kelner and Stephen Anthony to be removed from the case, The Hill reported.
Fox News reports that Flynn has replaced his legal team with “vocal Mueller team critic,” Sidney Powell.
Allegedly this is Flynn’s new attorney.
Her pinned tweet.
Former Attorney General Eric Holder became the first AG to be held in contempt of Congress, the vote Politico reported at the time was 255-67, 17 Democrats joined House Republicans and voted in favor of the “criminal contempt resolution, which authorizes Republicans leaders to seek criminal charges against Holder.”
Late Wednesday Good Morning America previewed an interview that President Trump had with ABC News contributor George Stephanopoulos.
In the previewed clip he explains he’d still accept help for a foreign power to obtain dirt on a political opponent even an adversary like Russia or China without notifying the FBI. Or you might “do both.” When told that the FBI Director Chris Wray said a campaign should contact the FBI if a foreign government attempts to interfere with U.S. Elections the President says, “the FBI Director is wrong.”

From 5/7/19, FBI Director Wray: “If any public official or member of any campaign is contacted by any nation state of anybody acting on behalf of a nation state about influencing or interfering with our election, then that’s something that the FBI would want to know about.” pic.twitter.com/6YZLDiivFQ— CSPAN (@cspan) June 13, 2019

Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) Vice Chairman Senate Intelligence Committee was asked about the President accusing him of not going to the FBI when he was contacted by Russia, the Senator said he has no idea what the President is referring to. (I googled I have no idea what the President is referring to either).
Sen. Mark Warner: “All of us, when we take an oath of office, swear to protect the United States from enemies both foreign and domestic.

Sen. Mark Warner: “The fact that this President has so little moral compass or understanding of the need to protect our nation that he says he would still welcome information from Russia, China … if it helps his political campaign is outrageous,” https://t.co/oBwEjkNWiw pic.twitter.com/ccKLsg5o7E— CNN Politics (@CNNPolitics) June 13, 2019
Sen. Mark Warner: “My hope and prayer would be that someone in the White House would counsel Mr. Trump that he oughta recognize that foreign interference is beyond the pale in terms of honoring your obligation to protect and defend the United States” https://t.co/x7ONm2mQIq pic.twitter.com/VrUmrmnGuI— CNN Politics (@CNNPolitics) June 13, 2019
The last tweet is when he’s asked about the President’s tweet.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) while the ranking member of the House intelligence committee received a prank call according to a spokesman via the Atlantic said, A spokesman for Schiff said, “Before agreeing to take the call, and immediately following it, the committee informed appropriate law-enforcement and security personnel of the conversation, and of our belief that it was probably bogus.”
The call itself came from two Russian pranksters known as Vovan and Lexus.

If you’re wondering if the President of the goddamn United States just invited foreign intelligence agencies to hack and spy on his political opponents, he did—PUBLICLY.— Windsor Mann (@WindsorMann) June 12, 2019
Think about what just happened today: The President of the United States just admitted that he’d happily break the law to win again in 2020.— Joe Walsh (@WalshFreedom) June 13, 2019
And by the way, why is he always picking on Norway?
