Trump’s first tweets, after only producing three yesterday, claim innocence because he says so, and NAFTA 2.0 is his new media framing of Mexico paying for his “border wall”.
The real deflection is from the National Enquirer vault revelations (Mueller’s folks have access to the whole trove of Trump dirt), and that there are more Cohen recordings. And he’s still burnt by his tiff with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.
So much TV watching and probably jabbering on the phone, perhaps binging on junk food, Trump spent a lot of yesterday on “executive time”. Like Reagan, he was “up at the crack of noon”.
Wouldn’t it be great if, instead of calculating the political cost of impeachment to the Dems, the GOP would join with them, saying, enough is enough. We made a mistake. It’s time to restore the rule of law & put country over party. https://t.co/PsBcX8NBPl

My favorite episode of Law & Order was when Sam Waterston passionately explained to the jury (over stirring music) that "I'm dumb and listened to my lawyer" is no defense to a crime.

Lol right on cue, the right-o-verse spins up the narrative of Flynn "entrapment"
He took money from an adversary of America and lied about it. He plotted to kidnap a US resident for money. He is a disgrace. This WSJ editorial is also a disgrace. pic.twitter.com/21qzs5Sv1d
