.@NRA lobbyist Dana Loesch blaming mental illness for violent crime. People with mental illness commit less than 5% of violent crimes. They are more likely to be victims than perpetrators.

A smile, a hug, a statement of support, an expression of pride, and ice cream.

2/ I understand the value of decorum and orderly debate. I also know the NRA and nearly all our elected officials have for decades now escaped persistent direct contact with the anger of their constituents over their inaction on gun control. These kids are breaking that barrier.

Further proof America's best and brightest *aren't* going into politics.

What sort of abject moron must you be to make this comment publicly, or even privately?

(And frankly I'd say the same if the comment were about Republicans. This sort of thinking is lazy, stupid, cruel.)

BREAKING: Mueller Expected to Ask Sam Nunberg About 2013 Ritz Moscow Allegations (and Depending Upon What He Says, Keith Schiller, Donald Trump, and Even the RNC Could Be in Big Trouble) bloomberg.com/news/articles/…

Given that Schiller gave *highly improbable testimony* to Congress on the critical question of what happened at the Ritz Moscow in November 2013, this looks for all the world like (more) hush money paid by Trump through intermediaries to keep a known Mueller witness "compliant."

Months ago, I made the case for disbelieving Keith Schiller's Congressional testimony—especially his claim he abandoned his post on Trump's door despite knowing there was an active blackmail threat against his principal. Now we learn the RNC is paying a Schiller op $180,000/year.

4/ Had the media done a real investigation of the Steele dossier, it would've known Schiller's testimony is suspicious and didn't conform to other info we have about what happened at the Ritz Moscow in November '13. That would've contextualized this RNC payout as ALSO suspicious.

5/ Only two Americans—*that we know of*—can say for certain if Putin is blackmailing Trump over an incident at the Ritz Moscow in November 2013: Keith Schiller and the President of the United States.

And we just learned an op run by the latter is paying an op run by the former.

3/ Trump is officially the head of the RNC, and he knows Schiller is a witness in a criminal probe in which he (Trump) is a suspect and likely target.

The idea that under ANY circumstances the RNC would pay Schiller ANY money while he's a Mueller-probe witness is beyond belief.

(THREAD) This is Part 2 of a thread on "True Pundit," the fake-news website—launched by a former FBI agent—that helped swing the 2016 election to Trump by blackmailing James Comey into reopening the Clinton email investigation just before Election Day. Hope you'll read and share.

CONCLUSION/ We should feel free to see this week's indictments as critical. We should feel equally free to see them as—in a certain view—beside the point of two key questions: (1) how did Trump conspire to steal an election; (2) how did Trump betray the nation he now leads. {end}
186 659
Replying to @SethAbramson :
NOTE/ I'd be remiss if I didn't note that—while they actually go *directly* to this question—coverage of this week's indictments has thus far done far too little to illuminate a critical third issue: (3) how Putin plans to destroy America by destroying our faith in our elections.
226 703
20/ We *knew* Russia attacked us by mid-July 2016, and this was confirmed for Trump—critically, for legal purposes—via formal security briefing on August 17, 2016. Any implication that it's only *this week* that that was confirmed is deeply wrong—indeed, Trumpist disinformation.

19/ For all these reasons, I didn't obsess over this week's indictments of 13 Russians by Bob Mueller. The indictments are important—but over-focusing on them does far more damage than good. And honestly, I think any committed Trump-Russia analyst should've been able to see that.

18/ Moreover, the media has insufficiently pushed back on Trump/Trump ally misstatements regarding the indictments themselves, thus playing into Trump's ongoing fallacious reasoning: until the moment Mueller alleges direct Trump-Russia coordination, he's saying there wasn't any.

17/ What misreporting of this week's indictments has done, however, is conflate the "Trump-Russia scandal" with a "Russia-Russia" story; made a tertiary Trump-Russia coordination angle the primary—indeed only—one; and continued to obscure the election-swinging Trump-FBI scandal.

16/ There's also a *chance*—though it's by no means necessary to the Trump-Russia story being a scandal, or illuminating impeachable offenses—that Trump's campaign actively coordinated with Russia's hacking, propaganda, or voter micro-targeting campaigns during the 2016 election.
