It’s Thursday aka The Day Before Friday.
For The Day Before Friday President Wind Bag has tweeted 3 times and retweeted 9 times so far.
He started his tweeting and retweeting 6 minutes after midnight D.C. time, calling former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates either “grossly incompetent” or a liar.
As covered in the campaign rally thread for day 3 on Wednesday, Sally Yates testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
The Washington Post reported on Wednesday that Yates testified that former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn had “neutered,” the Obama Administration’s attempts to discourage Russia from attempting to interfere in U.S. elections again.
CNN reported that Yates pushed back against Attorney General William Barr’s move to dismiss the Flynn case calling the Justice Departments move to intervene “highly irregular.”
Yates was asked about the early recommendations to close the Flynn investigation, she explained those recommendations came before they became aware of Flynn’s conversations with former Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak.

After he called Yates “grossly incompetent,” he moved to praise two of his biggest super-fans, calling them, “wonderful people.”
President Up for a Late Night Tweeting Snack paused his tweeting only to send one tweet (so far) @ 7:44 a.m. D.C., on Thursday.
President Liar: A debate, to me, is a Public Service.
Since 1987 The Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) has overseen the general election debates to “ensure, for the benefit of the American electorate, that general election debates between or among the leading candidates for the offices of President and Vice President of the United States are a permanent part of the electoral process.”
From vote.org’s., early voting by states calendar, near as I can tell in my research thus far, there are seven states that will begin general election voting prior to the first debate which is scheduled for September 29th, 2020.
Six of those states offer in-person absentee voting. The specifics in several of those states vary by county.
All of the other states with a form of early voting start two-weeks after the first Presidential Debate.

NY Attorney General.
I have zero idea what she’s going to announce, but her announcement of the announcement has sure got her national attention.
It’s possible this is why she’s holding the presser.
