It has been 58 days since Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) launched a formal Impeachment Inquiry into President Donald Trump.
Currently happening as a result of that inquiry is day 5 of public hearings led by the House Intelligence Committee. Testifying today is Fiona Hill, former Trump appointee to the National Security Council and David Holmes who works in the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine.
In response to today’s hearings the President has tweeted so far 18 times. With 2 retweets so far.
The BOO Fox News tweet.
Why do @ShannonBream & @FoxNews waste airtime on Democrat Rep. Eric Swalwell, who recently left the Presidential Primaries having attained a grand number of ZERO in the polls. I don’t even know how that is possible. Fox should stay with the people that got them there, not losers!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 21, 2019
Earlier, Trump attacked Fox for hosting Eric Swalwell.— Matthew Gertz (@MattGertz) November 21, 2019

The Tim “Apple” Cook Tweet.
During my visit yesterday to Austin, Texas, for the startup of the new Mac Pro, & the discussion of a new one $billion campus, also in Texas, I asked Tim Cook to see if he could get Apple involved in building 5G in the U.S. They have it all – Money, Technology, Vision & Cook!l— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 21, 2019
On Wednesday the President visited an Apple plant in Austin, Texas.
Today I opened a major Apple Manufacturing plant in Texas that will bring high paying jobs back to America. Today Nancy Pelosi closed Congress because she doesn’t care about American Workers!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 20, 2019

Tim Cook tweeted in 2013 to announce the Mac Pro plant in Austin, Texas, had been launched.

The may have revealed redacted parts of the Mueller Report aka he lied tweets.
Bob Mueller, after spending two years and 45 million dollars, went over all of my financials, & my taxes, and found nothing. Now the Witch Hunt continues with local New York Democrat prosecutors going over every financial deal I have ever done. This has never happened to a…..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 21, 2019
…..President before. What they are doing is not legal. But I’m clean, and when I release my financial statement (my decision) sometime prior to Election, it will only show one thing – that I am much richer than people even thought – And that is a good thing. Jobs, Jobs, Jobs!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 21, 2019
There is little evidence to support the idea that Special Counsel Robert Mueller “went over” all of the President’s financial records.
There is no mention inside the Mueller Report. When asked by the House Intelligence Committee about President Trump’s taxes, he declined to answer. (pg. 85 of the linked transcript to his testimony).
Judge Orders Trump to Pay $2 Million to Settle a Civil Lawsuit https://t.co/TlmT3I7C5G— Snip🦈Bytes (@SnipBytes) November 7, 2019
As a reminder:
A judge has said that President Trump while candidate-Trump defrauded his own charity.
The New York Southern District is attempting to collect financial records to determine if President Trump was involved with campaign finance violations in connection with his former personal attorney Michael Cohen regarding hush money payments to two women that have said they had sexual relations with then-Business man Trump.
Michael Cohen is currently serving time in prison for in part campaign finance violations which he said in open court he committed at the direction of the President.

The here is some whine to go with that cheese tweets.
I never in my wildest dreams thought my name would in any way be associated with the ugly word, Impeachment! The calls (Transcripts) were PERFECT, there was NOTHING said that was wrong. No pressure on Ukraine. Great corruption & dishonesty by Schiff on the other side!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 21, 2019
Corrupt politician Adam Schiff’s lies are growing by the day. Keep fighting tough, Republicans, you are dealing with human scum who have taken Due Process and all of the Republican Party’s rights away from us during the most unfair hearings in American History……— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 21, 2019
…..But we are winning big, and they will soon be on our turf.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 21, 2019
“The new House Resolution gives Adam Schiff (the most dishonest man in politics) the power unilaterally to release edited transcripts. Rule 10 gives Chairman Schiff absolutely no jurisdiction. Subpoenas issued as part of Dems’ Impeachment inquiry are illegal.” Sam Dewey @FoxNews— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 21, 2019
….”Nothing gives Schiff jurisdiction over Impeachment.”— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 21, 2019
This is the second time via tweet that President Trump has called a those that he doesn’t like, or more specifically those that dare to call out his poor behavior Human Scum.
There is nothing that prevents any committee from holding “impeachment” hearings. Articles of impeachment if filed will be filed by the Judiciary Committee, the Committee that the House Intelligence Committee will hand off to at the conclusion of their investigation.
The more prompting of Fox News tweets.
The Navy will NOT be taking away Warfighter and Navy Seal Eddie Gallagher’s Trident Pin. This case was handled very badly from the beginning. Get back to business!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 21, 2019
As has been the case throughout this saga, Trump's declaration that the Navy not take Eddie Gallagher's SEAL trident pin came in response to him watching Fox (in this case, Gallagher's lawyer).— Matthew Gertz (@MattGertz) November 21, 2019

The Republican Party, and me, had a GREAT day yesterday with respect to the phony Impeachment Hoax, & yet, when I got home to the White House & checked out the news coverage on much of television, you would have no idea they were reporting on the same event.

Read the two Transcripts of Ukrainian calls!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 21, 2019
Still not a transcript(s) of the calls between President Trump and President Zelensky. They are memorandums, that caution the reader they are not verbatim.

The caution is the same printed at the bottom of the first page.
The I’m a insecure man tweet.
I have been watching people making phone calls my entire life. My hearing is, and has been, great. Never have I been watching a person making a call, which was not on speakerphone, and been able to hear or understand a conversation. I’ve even tried, but to no avail. Try it live!— Donald J.

Iran has become so unstable that the regime has shut down their entire Internet System so that the Great Iranian people cannot talk about the tremendous violence taking place within the country….— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 21, 2019
….They want ZERO transparency, thinking the world will not find out the death and tragedy that the Iranian Regime is causing!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 21, 2019
The New York Times reported on Sunday that Iran had issued an almost complete nationwide blackout of the internet.
From the article:
The death toll for the three days of protests rose to at least 12; hundreds were injured; and more than 1,000 people have been arrested, according to semiofficial news agencies like Fars News.
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the supreme leader who has the last word on all state matters, called the demonstrators “thugs” and endorsed the government’s decision to raise prices it sets for rationed gasoline by 50 percent as of Friday and by 300 percent for gasoline that exceeds ration limits. Even after the price hike, gasoline in Iran is still cheaper than in most of the rest of the world — now the equivalent of about 50 cents a gallon.The New York Times.
