Mueller finding indicates that Manafort is such a habitual liar that he denies things he’s already admitted to, then confronted with the lies admits them again
 
lol, when you just love to lie
President Trump acknowledges in a new presidential memorandum that he still hasn’t legally moved the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.
 
@TimStone i thought the grand opening was months ago
is this a thing to string adelson along for aonther campaign?
 
12:24 AM
There's some weird requirement that the Ambassador have permanent residence in Jerusalem and that's not established so legally 🤷🏼‍♂️

The mooch is at it again
Corrected attribution: At Trump booster gathering in DC, Anthony Scaramucci gushed to attendees about the crazy Q-anon conspiracy within earshot of @SchreckReports , then lied about it when approached, then insisted the comments should be off the record https://politi.co/2G8WFNp
By now you’d think he’d know how off the record works
 
3:22 AM
@GodEmperorDune no one does
 
4:00 AM
NYT reports the $125K Manafort allegedly lied about is tied to a pro-Trump Super PAC. This is the Super PAC Tom Barrack helped start. Barrack again. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/07/us/politics/manafort-special-counsel-lies.html https://www.cnn.com/2016/06/02/politics/tom-barrack-donald-trump-super-pac/

Very proud of Ireland for this historic move. Now anyone even assisting in the import of products from Israeli settlements on stolen Palestinian land, will face jail time, or a massive fine! Apartheid, wrong in South Africa, wrong in Israel. #FreePalestine #BDS
 
5:52 AM
great scoop from @c_m_dangelo: Ryan Zinke, who vowed to maintain control over federal lands, gave a job on the National Park advisory board to the cousin of the guy who runs a right-wing think tank devoted to ending federal control over public lands. https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/ryan-zinke-national-park-advisory-board_us_5c0af9c0e4b035a7bf5b343f?w48

And on a similar subject
The problem with ‘good men,’ according to comedian @Hannahgadsby https://www.washingtonpost.com/arts-entertainment/2018/12/06/hannah-gadsby-good-men-monologue-misogyny-hollywood/?fbclid=IwAR3gFO6twb8ns3YhQVwxRD9sQ-rEYHaWr3tTMsgGZ6tOFvLyPwxzNiGDVMw&noredirect=on&utm_term=.ffbea075e0ed @socwomen
damn this is powerful
> "A world full of good men who do very bad things and still believe in their heart of hearts that they are good men because they have not crossed the line. Because they moved the line for their own good. Women should be in control of that line, no question."
> “Now take everything I have said up unto this point and replace ‘men’ with ‘white person,’ " Gadsby continued, to tepid laughter. “And know that if you are a white woman you have no place drawing lines in the sand between good white people and bad white people.”

The same, she said, could be said for those who are “straight,” “cis,” “able-bodied” or “neurotypical.”
> “Everybody believes they are fundamentally good, and we all need to believe we are fundamentally good because believing you are fundamentally good is part of the human condition,” she said. “But if you have to believe someone else is bad in order to believe you are good, you are drawing a very dangerous line.”

Incredible report on how Saudis wooed the politically naive Kushner to become their top advocate in the White House. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/08/world/middleeast/saudi-mbs-jared-kushner.html
Good ol' malleable Jared
 
6:30 PM
@TimStone lol rekt
@Unionhawk ahahahaha
 
.@realDonaldTrump says chief of staff John Kelly will leave the White House at the end of the year
He's actually out this time, huh
 
I’ll believe it when he leaves
 
lol
I mean true. But Trump did come out on the south lawn and tell reporters so I guess it's set
DJT: “John Kelly will be leaving-I don’t know if I can say retiring. But he’s a great guy. John Kelly will be leaving at the end of the year
(a thread, but actually the quote just is him repeating himself several times)
Speaking about the latest Mueller filings, Trump told reporters moments ago that he's "very happy with what we've been reading" ... then in the next breath, he admitted he has *not* actually read any of them, but "based on what everyone is telling me, there's no collusion."
lmfao
 
Scoop: The criminal investigation into to stolen identities used to file anti-net neutrality comments with the FCC is far bigger than previously thought. The FBI is delivering subpoenas and at least three state attorneys general offices also investigating. https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/kevincollier/feds-investigation-net-neutrality-comments
 
"Is it okay Rudy?" camera pans to Rudy eating a pants sandwich "Uhhhhh yeah it's great best it's ever been"
 
6:37 PM
@TimStone if they wanted him to read the reports they would find/replace individual 1 with trump
 
3 Chief of Staffs in less than 3 years of being President: Part of the reason why @BarackObama can't manage to pass his agenda.
lol of course
 
dammit I was going to post that
Our TLs are too similar
 
Ash
And he's had how many?
 
Everyone remember how Reince was CoS for a bit? Good times, good times
@Ash He'll have to pick his third now
 
Ash
In much less time.
 
6:41 PM
@Ash replacing the second or third at the end of the year
 
Ash
Second or third?
 
According to a @WSJ report, @POTUS told people on Thursday: “Stop calling John for anything. Call Nick. He’s my guy,” referencing @VP Chief of Staff @nick_ayers.
 
@Ash Wikipedia confirms that he is replacing the second, so he will have 3 in less than 2 years
 
lol what? He's just going to steal Pence's chief of staff?
 
@Ash chief of staff
 
Ash
6:43 PM
All of this is so hard to keep track of
People come people go I barely learn their names in tiem
 
I mean the normal turnover for senior positions is about 2 years, these jobs are very intense
 
@Ash Usually it doesn't matter because they aren't doing a lot of crimes to be fair
 
So it was silly of trump to initially poke fun at Obama for the thing
 
Oh no the Krassensteins have broken out Buff Mueller again
 
And trump is a much more stressful admin to work for, because of the incompetence and the crimes
@TimStone still lolling about the BOOM
 
7:01 PM
Ding Dong. . .
Excellent, CoS Mooch. Let's make it four in two years
Uh
....left and right, he then woke up from his dream screaming that HE LIED. Next time I go to Vietnam I will ask “the Dick” to travel with me!
k
I'm not sure where this is coming from or what it's even supposed to really mean but this man is the President
 
Ash
......I just...what dose this even have to do with anything? Like...dude, you're the President. Clarity and brevity and logic should be a thing.
 
He's trying to insult Blumenthal but I don't even get the implication
 
@TimStone wait was mooch chief of staff?
@TimStone I guess trump wants the D?
 
@GodEmperorDune No he was press secretary or comms director or whatever so now he make another cameo as cos
 
Ahhhhhh, lol
 
7:14 PM
For a week
 
21 days
Oops, 10 days
 
A day after George Papadopoulos was released from prison in Wisconsin, he’s speaking at the American Priority conference in DC. People in the audience joking they’re disappointed it’s not George Stephanopoulos
lol fantastic
(from the thread)
George Papadopoulos talking about his meetings in Europe: "It wasn’t a secret that Trump wanted some connection with Russia at the geopolitical level at the time...I thought, 'The niece of Vladimir Putin wants to meet with me?' I was on cloud nine."
Just an impressively dumb man
 
Ash
7:43 PM
@TimStone Oh thats who my brain keeps confusing him with
This clears up a lot of vague weirdness in my head
 
Ah, yes, lol
 
7:59 PM
@TimStone hang on, i have carter page on the line
 
8:29 PM
“The best thing Reince Priebus has going for him is John,” former Trump comms czar & current Kelly hater Anthony Scaramucci told The Daily Beast. “It’s basically a race to the bottom as to who was the worst chief of staff in White House history.” https://www.thedailybeast.com/john-kelly-is-out-as-donald-trumps-chief-of-staff
Ahahahaha excellent

10:03 PM
Has anyone found anything interesting in Comey’s testimony yet? I don’t think I’ll get very far with it, the early questions are seriously stupid
 
10:22 PM
@GodEmperorDune But this is how science works. You don't just assume that existing common knowledge is accurate or complete. You do research and experiments and verify

Two nuns are accused of embezzling half a million dollars from Catholic school to gamble in #Vegas https://cbsloc.al/2B2vkXg
One time the nuns at my Catholic school accused me of not turning in my tuition check even though I was like 9 so now that makes sense
