Interesting on its own, this story about how Russian trolls pushed vaccine debates in the US includes several other key points that are worth examining. THREAD…
First of all, it's fascinating to me just from the standpoint of how even the most absurd propositions can draw wide audiences, when thinking people should be able to dismiss them out of hand. 2/
Second, the fact that we will argue ad inifinitum about subjects that don't deserve a second look is a serious indictment of something - either our inherently American contrariness or the ground-leveling effect social media has. 2/

1.) As we have all seen, @LannyDavis has become the face for @MichaelCohen212 after his guilty plea & he is attempting to implicate @realDonaldTrump in violation of Federal Campaign Laws.
I will show you how this @HillaryClinton groveling moron duped #MichaelCohen!

.@BBC reporting on "an historic day in American politics." The presenter notes "at a rally last night, the President led a chant of #LockHerUp, referring to Hillary Clinton, but it's Trump's closest people who are going to jail."

The presenter sounds incredulous about the chant.
18mins into the @BBCWorld broadcast, still talking about Trump, #Manafort, #MichaelCohen and #LannyDavis.

Now there is a US constitutional scholar discussing how the president can indeed be indicted and how there is "grounds for impeachment" after yesterday's events.

.@BBCWorld quotes #MichaelCohen's attorney #LannyDavis w/r/t #MuellerInvestigation.
Davis told @maddow last night that Cohen has "Knowledge on certain subjects" that he would be willing to transmit to Mueller. Davis said Cohen's knowledge "is...

As news breaks about Trump being implicated by #MichaelCohen in a crime, Mike Pence, Fox News, and others on the right are cynically exploiting the heinous murder of #MollieTibbetts. An evil monster killed her. An undocumented immigrant. I hope justice is swiftly served.
THREAD (2/4):

#MollieTibbetts' family deserves our respect, thoughts, prayers, and condolences. What they do NOT deserve is to be used as pawns to make a political point about immigration, to stoke xenophobia, to drum up fear and bigotry.
THREAD (3/4):

Has Mike Pence tweeted about the recent murder of:

Makiyah Wilson, 10-years-old

Kayden Mancuso, 7-years-old

Nia Wilson, 18-years-old

Casey Nicole Kizer, 17-years-old

Megan L. Metzger, 19-years-old

Or any of numerous murders of young women across America?

He said earlier he acted on his own. Now face with more time in prison and to reduce the time he says he acted "in coordination and at the direction of a candidate for federal office." They will all lie when squeezed. #MichaelCohenPleaDeal
No Russian Collusion but now the stakes just got higher. Our president will need prayers to get through this. The opposition is determined to take him out by any means necessary. #MAGA
The left and MSM smell blood in the water and are circling an attack.

#MichaelCohen has pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations: hush money payments to #KarenMcDougal and #StormyDaniels.

This is terrible news for Trump.
The allocution will be handed over to Congress and the #MuellerInvestigation.
To be very clear, #MichaelCohen is now an admitted felon and cited Trump as his co-conspirator.

This could be turned over to Congress as a high crime and misdemeanor.

This is huge.
And what cannot be ignored is that #MichaelCohen served as Deputy Finance Chairman for the #RNC.

And Cohen just pleaded guilty to campaign finance crimes.

This implicates the party. This is no longer just about #MichaelCohen--it's about the #GOP.

Well Housatonic IT Services never really thought about it, but since you ask #Qanon , we would be happy to take a peak

Although it is biased (as described in #AboutStrzok)... and even edited by confessed pedophiles (dead serious... even people who discuss how they have fantasies of raping their own parents), we always have to start with @Wikipedia

Dammit ...

"While in college and later in law school, Avenatti worked at The Research Group, a political opposition research and media firm run by #RahmEmanuel (later White House Chief of Staff for President Barack Obama, and Mayor of Chicago)"

(THREAD) Lanny Davis to Axios: "Michael is going to tell the truth to the powers that be, and let the chips fall where they may." IOW: Michael is going to tell the truth--even truths that might be deemed damaging to *him* (i.e., MIchael Cohen).
1/ This evening we learned that Cohen is prepared to tell Mueller that he was present with others (not yet identified) when Trump was told about the arrangements for the June 9 meeting,
2/ the purpose of which was to give the Trump campaign information that the Prosecutor General of Russia thought would be helpful to the Trump campaign and damaging to Hillary Clinton.

1/ There is nothing in today’s VF piece by Emily Jane Fox about #MichaelCohen’s motives in holding the interview that couldn’t have been predicted, but it should help to dispel some of the confusion and errors that have been circulating today on Twitter.
2/ According to Vanity Fair, Cohen had been contemplating holding such an interview as part of a media cum legal strategy for MONTHS. Normally such interviews are planned by media savvy attorneys well in advance, but this one was precipitated

(THREAD--12 tweets) Short, bottom line takeaway. #MichaelCohen is flipping. #mueller
1/ “Once Petrillo [Cohen’s new lawyer] fully assumes his role, a joint defense agreement Cohen shared with the president, which allowed their lawyers to share information and documents with each other, will come to an end, ABC News has learned.”
2/ “At that point, the legal interests of the president of the United States and his longtime personal attorney could quickly become adversarial.”

The “national hero” stuff is what this Vanity Fair article emphasizes, but the money quote is at the end: “I have no one watching my back,” he has told friends. “I just did what I was told.” #mueller #michaelcohen
1/ This is also what Cohen’s friend Donny Deutsch said in an interview on June 21 with Ari Melber (see 4:30 min +).
2/ So: “None of my erstwhile friends, including those who went on to DC without me, and Trump himself, have my back. So it’s up to me to protect myself and my family. And everything I did (at least everything I did that Mueller is after) I did for Trump.” #mueller #michaelcohen

BOOM! Great news for the Mueller timeline. Now things can REALLY start moving forward.

Flip Cohen, then Manafort (and indict Stone, probably others as well); write COLLUSION report b/f the Nov 6 election. #mueller #michaelcohen
1/ The materials will be determinative for Cohen in deciding what he will have to proffer, and will be useful for Mueller in assessing what kind of plea agreement might be involved in getting Cohen to flip.
2/ Note that the AP article mentions only the business dealings. This is misleading almost to the point of being fake news.

The US Attorneys’ objection to the request by Cohen for a two-week delay in processing the materials captured in the raid is significant--b/c this isn’t just about taxi medallions. It’s about Trump-Russia collusion. #mueller #michaelcohen
1/ The Mueller Team & the feds in NY and DC have a timeline, and they want to get moving on it. Mueller will not be interested in a proffer or plea agreement negotiations until he has seen the materials taken in the raid. (And lawyers for Cohen know that.) #mueller #michaelcohen
2/ The government is showing its hand here. It wants to get Cohen to flip SOON. That in itself is important, but it’s also important for getting Manafort to flip (who is resisting). #mueller #michaelcohen

BREAKING: Michael Cohen's attorneys inform Judge Wood they have completed privilege review on more than 4 million files.

"We have designated over 12,061 files as privileged pursuant to the attorney-client privilege and attorney-work product doctrine," their letter states.
Team Cohen also elaborates on the productions they've passed on to Trump and the Trump Org. Cohen also says that "certain" seized devices are only family photos and videos.

Here's the letter in full.…
To review:

12,061 / 4,000,000 = a tiny percentage of files even *claimed* to be privileged

He's trying to depose Trump. Here's an explainer.
First, the background:
1/ Oct. 2016: #MichaelCohen worked with Stormy’s lawyer #KeithDavidson to arrange for Stormy to sign a nondisclosure agreement (NDA)
[What’s that? See this thread: ]

Jan 2018: someone leaked the agreement to the WSJ. Stormy said it wasn't her.
2/ Cohen, using “intimidation and coercive tactics, forced [Stormy] to sign a false statement” denying she had an affair with Trump. [Quotations are from her complaint, here:… ]

Cohen then issued a public statement about the hush agreement, prompting. . .

Crossfire Hurricane was working with the Department of the Treasury, we know that from a BBC article from January 2017.

A Buzzfeed article from October, 2017 refers to illegal accessing of Dep of Treasury Records.

Remember the multiple Michael Cohens!? CH is the leak #Spygate
Someone called Buzzfeed pretty quick (within several hours) to push back hard. Wonder who?

"An unsourced suggestion that an office within Treasury is engaged in illegal spying on Americans is unfounded and completely off-base" uh huh. #Spygate

You sure about that @MichaelAvenatti “no pending disciplinary proceedings against you” did @StateBarCA not receive a complaint about you? Is your former law partner Jason Frank not suing you? Unpaid taxes ring a bell or maybe #TullysCoffee ? Judge Wood must be smarter than this?
Apparently we will know soon.
Whoops! @MichaelAvenatti 100% lied to the State of New York there is in fact a complaint under review. Are attorneys allowed to file false statements🤷🏼‍♀️ @NewYorkStateAG @TheJusticeDept…

May 5–9, 2018: 8,000 people in Russian military uniform marched in 20 US cities. A Russian tank in Ohio; the hammer and sickle in front of the White House. The US Senators approve it. The Kremlin funds it. 👇Thread on #HybridWar. @J_amesp @profcarroll @carolecadwalla @ushadrons
1. The #ImmortalRegiment is a grassroots initiative of Russian people hijacked by the Kremlin to carry out a hybrid war operation in 50 countries. It is supported by the federal agencies and an organization funded by the Kremlin. Russian embassies help to organize these events.
2. On the orders of the Russian Ministry of the Foreign Affairs, immigrants from the former USSR and Russians living abroad carry out the “Immortal Regiment” to promote Russian militarism and nationalism and the idea of an authoritarian leader amongst Russian diaspora.
