A Point by Point Rebuttal To Trump's Morning Tweet Storm
Biggest outrage yet in the long, winding and highly conflicted Mueller Witch Hunt is the fact that 19,000 demanded Text messages between Peter Strzok and his FBI lover, Lisa Page, were purposely & illegally deleted. Would have explained whole Hoax, which is now under protest!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 18, 2018
The texts were not deleted — there was a software glitch that affected thousands of phones at the FBI, which caused the phones not to save the texts. The texts that have been made available basically said what most rational people — including Trump’s own Chief of Staff, Mick Mulvaney — said around the election, which is that Trump was not fit to be President (or, as Mulvaney said, Trump “is a terrible person.”) In either case, Strozk was immediately removed from the Mueller probe after the texts were made known to Mueller (and he was later fired from the FBI). The texts wouldn’t have explained anything, because the initial FISA warrants were not based on them.
Good luck today in court to General Michael Flynn. Will be interesting to see what he has to say, despite tremendous pressure being put on him, about Russian Collusion in our great and, obviously, highly successful political campaign. There was no Collusion!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 18, 2018
Michael Flynn will be sentenced today. He’s expected to be sentenced between 0-6 months. The judge released a memo last night detailing how Flynn lied to the FBI, and among other things, it showed that Flynn asked the Russian ambassador not to retaliate against Obama, who expelled Russian diplomats over election meddling, because the implication was that Trump would lift those sanctions (Congress wouldn’t let him, however). The memo, in addition to proving that Flynn lied, showed clear coordination between Flynn — Trump’s national security advisor — and the Russian Ambassador.
I hope the people over at the Fed will read today’s Wall Street Journal Editorial before they make yet another mistake. Also, don’t let the market become any more illiquid than it already is. Stop with the 50 B’s. Feel the market, don’t just go by meaningless numbers. Good luck!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 18, 2018
The stock market is on track to have its worst December since the Great Depression. The stock market’s gains for the year have been wiped out. The Trump tax cut has not spurred capital investments in the United States, as Trump promised. They only benefited the wealthy at the expense of the ballooning federal deficit. Trump wants to blame everyone but himself. Also, how is it that he can spell illiquid but not “border.”
Facebook, Twitter and Google are so biased toward the Dems it is ridiculous! Twitter, in fact, has made it much more difficult for people to join @realDonaldTrump. They have removed many names & greatly slowed the level and speed of increase. They have acknowledged-done NOTHING!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 18, 2018
Trump is pissed off because Twitter removed hundreds of thousands of bots and fake followers. The idea that Facebook, instrumental in getting Trump elected, or Twitter, which refuses to remove Nazis from its service, is biased toward the Democrats is absurd. Google is only biased against Trump in the same way that “facts” are biased against Trump.
Illegal immigration costs the United States more than 200 Billion Dollars a year. How was this allowed to happen?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 18, 2018
This is better than the other made-up number Trump often uses, which is $250 billion. Both numbers are inaccurate. It’s closer to $115 billion, a number which doesn’t take into account the money undocumented workers sink back into the economy in the form of taxes, nor their positive impact on businesses that could not otherwise find workers willing to do the work, like, for instance, Donald Trump’s housekeeping service.
Russia Dossier reporter now doubts dopey Christopher Steele’s claims! “When you get into the details of the Steele Dossier, the specific allegations, we have not seen the evidence to support them. There’s good grounds to think that some of the more sensational allegations…..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 18, 2018
….WILL NEVER BE PROVEN AND ARE LIKELY FALSE.” Thank you to Michael Isikoff, Yahoo, for honesty. What this means is that the FISA WARRANTS and the whole Russian Witch Hunt is a Fraud and a Hoax which should be ended immediately. Also, it was paid for by Crooked Hillary & DNC!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 18, 2018
Michael Isikoff was the first to report Dossier allegations and now seriously doubts the Dossier claims. The whole Russian Collusion thing was a HOAX, but who is going to restore the good name of so many people whose reputations have been destroyed?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 18, 2018
Some of the Steele Dossier claims have already been substantiated (in fact, Michael Cohen helped in that regard), and while it is true that some of the salacious claims in the dossier may never be proven true, it doesn’t matter, because the FISA warrants were not predicated on the Steele Dossier. They were predicated on information gained from Carter Page and George Papadopoulos, who was just released from prison for lying to the FBI.
Moreover, that’s not really what Isikoff said.
He's quoting @Isikoff's comments on @Zigmanfreud's podcast. Fox featured it this AM. Isikoff also said that "in broad strokes, Steele was clearly onto something, that there was a major Kremlin effort to interfere in our elections, that they were trying to help Trump's campaign…" https://t.co/G1rEF6C1Ov— Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) December 18, 2018
