Day two of the New Year finds the Impeached President tweeting 4 times, so far for Thursday.
Sohrab Ahmari, New York Post “The Trump Campaign raised $10 million in the two days following the impeachment (Scam) vote. It seems the Democrats have shot themselves in the foot in one more way. They set up a process they know is not going to lead to the Presidents removal, &…— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 2, 2020
….it’s alienating independents. This President is being persecuted over three years with one investigation after another, and that really plays to his base.” @FoxNews @cvpayne Their partisan Witch Hunt is hurting our Country do badly, & only bringing more division than ever!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 2, 2020
First things first, what he meant was, the Witch Hunt is hurting our Country so badly, not do badly. The two tweets were sent at 8:42 a.m. eastern and have yet to be replaced, they will be, probably by the time this thread is published. But as we have been saying far too much lately, the internet is forever.
According to his Twitter bio Sohrab Ahmari, is an Op-ed editor for the New York Post, and a Contributing editor for the Catholic Herald.
His suggestion for the Supreme Court, Adrian Vermeule’s, Twitter bio reads, “Tyler Professor of Constitutional Law, Harvard Law School. “There is a day to come which will reverse the confident judgments of men.“
Congrats to Sohrab Ahmari, who (whatever ones’ views on the various debates in which he has been engaged) has rather clearly been the most influential Catholic public commentator of the past year https://t.co/oWvvERoxTP— Adrian Vermeule (@Vermeullarmine) January 2, 2020
Ahmari also sent a second tweet responding to the President’s tweet.
My wife be like: “Yeah, yeah, that’s great. Max is sick, and you need to change his diaper.” https://t.co/oaTFLzjIzp— Sohrab Ahmari (@SohrabAhmari) January 2, 2020
Matthew Gertz of Media Matters, often confused with Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz (R), was off Twitter to celebrate both Christmas and Hanukah, today, Matthew not the drunk Rep., from Florida, restarted his monitoring of Trump’s Tweets as they connect to live Fox News segments.
OK, here's the thread where I will put all the Fox live-tweets since Dec. 20 when I went on vacation for the holidays. This will take a few hours. Feel free to mute if you're just here for me tweeting "wrong guy" several dozen times in a row.— Matthew Gertz (@MattGertz) January 2, 2020
As to the President calling Impeachment a Hoax, well, that doesn’t change the fact that he is Impeached, and that is forever.
A lot of very good people were taken down by a small group of Dirty (Filthy) Cops, politicians, government officials, and an investigation that was illegally started & that SPIED on my campaign. The Witch Hunt is sputtering badly, but still going on (Ukraine Hoax!). If this….— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 2, 2020
While the above tweet was posted in a thread. I feel they need separated out.
“A lot of very good people…”
ABC News 11/15/19.
Convictions or guilty pleas that resulted from the Special Counsel Robert Mueller Russian Interference Investigation. (Mueller Report).
Paul Manafort, former Trump Presidential Campaign manager was convicted on 8 counts of criminal charges stemming from bank fraud to tax evasion, in Virginia. Following the conviction he pleaded guilty to other charges filed in the District of Columbia. He was sentenced to 81 months in prison.
The Washington Post reported in Oct. 2019, that President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, had in “recent months has consulted several times with Manafort through the federal prisoner’s lawyer in pursuit of information about a disputed ledger [The black ledger] that would bolster his theory that the real story of 2016 is not Russian interference to elect Trump, but Ukrainian efforts to support Hillary Clinton.” Giuliani confirmed the relationship to the Post in an interview.
Rick Gates, Manafort’s business partner also worked for the Trump campaign as the second in command. He entered a plea deal, in February 2018 on the charges that he conspired against the United States and for lying to federal prosecutors. He cooperated with investigators and in December 2019 he was sentenced to serve 45 days in jail. (CNN).
Michael Flynn, former National Security Adviser to President Trump, entered a guilty plea on Dec. 1st, 2017, for making false statements and omissions in FBI interviews, Flynn is still awaiting sentencing.
Roger Stone, a longtime personal friend to President Trump was found guilty on Nov. 15, 2019 for obstruction of an official proceeding, five counts of false statements, including lying to Congress, and one count of witness tampering. His sentencing is scheduled for February 6, 2020, he faces up to 50 years in prison.
Michael Cohen, President Trump’s onetime personal attorney pleaded guilty to one count of making false statements to Congress. He was sentenced to three months in prison for that count, to be served concurrently with his three-year sentence he received for crimes he committed in the Southern District of New York. One of those crimes was facilitating hush money payments at the direction of the President, then-candidate Trump to silence two women who claimed having affairs with then-businessman Trump in 2008-2009. Cohen provided Congress with a documents, including several checks signed by President Trump repaying Cohen regarding one of the hush money payments.
The above named convictions do not include a full list of those that have been indicted and convicted. For a full list @ ABC News.
“SPIED on my campaign.”
Inspector General Michael Horowitz testified before the Senate that this is not accurate. Four campaign members for President Trump were under surveillance, Carter Page, Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn, and George Papadopoulos. 2 of the four are listed above. Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI regarding his contact with Russian Nationals while he was a Trump campaign foreign adviser. He was sentenced to 14 days in jail, fined $9,500, given 200 hours of community service, and given a year of supervision.
Carter Page was not charged, Horowitz did testify that Page’s FISA Application was riddled with errors, but he found no political bias, save for possibly one low-level employee that he referred to the Department of Justice for further investigation after Horowitz’s team found that an email had be forged. The IG Report regarding the FISA application process and the opening of the Trump campaign members and Russia can be found here. It should be noted that Page was the only one of the four under a FISA warrant.
….had happened to a Presidential candidate, or President, who was a Democrat, everybody involved would long ago be in jail for treason (and more), and it would be considered the CRIME OF THE CENTURY, far bigger and more sinister than Watergate!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 2, 2020
“CRIME OF THE CENTURY”
It appears 2020 is just going to be an all caps version of 2019, 2018, 2017….only with more rallies given it’s a Presidential Election Cycle. Good Times!!!!
For what it’s worth, had a Democrat President pressured a foreign country in order to have help with a political campaign, pretty sure that President would have either resigned or been removed from Office already, but hypocrisy knows no bounds, so instead we are all here subjected to whataboutism from the leader of the free world.
The typo’d do instead of so tweet is still posted on President Trump feed at 12:02 eastern time.
Here's Trump's public schedule for tomorrow. (Public schedules don't include all of a president's activities.) pic.twitter.com/NU63Md5Jl9— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) January 2, 2020
