It’s Thursday.

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.

Michael Flynn

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.

Moving on.

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.”

One Month later(ish) The President of the United States. For more thoughts on President Trump’s statements @ the News Blender.

The President took to Twitter to defend his statements calling the Prince of Wales, the Prince of Whales.

Jokes were had. Good Times…

Lawmakers weighed-in.

Note to readers: The above clip from MSNBC will not play if you use ad-blocker @ the News Blender.

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).

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.

A Glimpse at Twitter’s thoughts.
