1. Here is what actually happened in #ManafortTrial
Today Mueller team called expert IRS witness to stand Judge Ellis wasn’t happy because he thought (incorrectly) he’d ruled to not admit experts because that is his typical procedure.
2. Asonye reminds him that in fact this witness was cleared to stay (true) and Judge Ellis says fair enough, it might be what transcript says but wants to remind Asonye (who appears frequently in his court) that it’s not typical he also says it’s not a big deal.
3. Transcripts show that this expert witness was in fact allowed to stay, hand it to Mueller’s team for cleverly calling him an IRS agent because case agents are allowed to remain. Also fail on Manafort team for not objecting unless they have a plan🤷🏼‍♀️
4. So Mueller team filed a motion for curative instruction, they want Judge Ellis to make it clear to the jury he was incorrect to say expert witness wasn’t allowed. It’s a bit petty considering he clarified it’s not usually his process but it’s not wrong of them to file.
5. One might argue Judge Ellis would have done this on his own but who knows. It could also be groundwork for appeal since this trial has been a hot mess for Mueller but only time will tell.
6. Delivering this story peppered with quotes from Politico is lame, describing him as a “cranky judge” and boldfacing a random quote that’s nowhere in the transcript seems unnecessary, not sure @SaraCarterDC read the filing but we owe it to each other to not sensationalize
7. @politico took it to the next level though, saying Mueller has presented a slam dunk case pointing out that #JudgeEllis is 76 (your point?) and saying he’s been tweaking the Special Counsel constantly 🙄 Gotta keep the rabid Left fed. #FakeNews
8. Seems like they are working overtime to fluff up the resistance in case this circus trial falls flat. Imagine how cool it would be if reporters just told the facts? But then they wouldn’t get the clicks.
9. So yes #JudgeEllis made a mistake even the filing admitted that happens and sure, the jury can be told as much but the sky isn’t falling and this curative motion doesn’t make up for 3 days of your pathologically lying star witness #ManafortTrial
10. Here’s the entire filing all nine pages must’ve been too overwhelming for any reporter to read before firing off their #BreakingStory of the day🤦‍♀️
11. “Put aside any criticism. I was probably wrong in that," Ellis said to kick off the trial proceedings Thursday morning. "This robe doesn't make me anything other than human."
#JudgeEllis #ManafortTrial
12. So Judge Ellis already apologized making the Mueller filing seem more like a brat move and the first paper trail for “IT WASN’T OUR FAULT”
13. Addendum: thinking about this more Judge Ellis suggested Asonye seems like some of his frustration/surprise may have been because he assumed slick moves wouldn’t be pulled by him? Thoughts @Techno_Fog ?

📌1. Hey @CNN @MSNBC @ABC @CBSNews @NPR @washingtonpost @nytimes et al, can we talk? Is one of these groups of people more important than the other? All of them were targeted with a deadly threat but most people don’t know that because you didn’t report it #MAGABomber
2. This isn’t an attack, it’s an attempt to help you understand why we chant “fake news” and maybe, just maybe if any of you read it, you’ll admit you aren’t really as fair as you think? @realDonaldTrump is right, we can all do better.
3. Not going to talk about the guys arrested because that really shouldn’t be the focus but two men were both arrested and complaints were filed for five felony charges. Yup, and no one even knows the name of the guy that sent Ricin, why? #CesarSayoc will trend though.

Remember #flaggate when everyone freaked out @realDonaldTrump hadn’t lowered flags for McCain? Looks like it was the handy work of one of the resist idiots @Project_Veritas has documented. First thing Monday morning message was sent that all flags be at half-staff for McCain.
Then someone from Denver NPS cancelled the order causing chaos in all the Departments, some then raised the flag back, emails were exchanged back and forth and eventually clarified but it was all thanks to some rogue employee. Should be noted NPS is full of SJW’s
Some in the Departments said they were waiting to hear directly from Whitehouse if you remember DJT was a little busy that morning announcing a YUGE trade deal with Mexico BUT the order had already been sent in the AM declaring it would remain half-staff until TBD.

DJT came down stairs solo, followed by Gen Kelly and Rosenstein together and that dude from Home Improvement that follows RR everywhere, whatever his name is.

Yesterday @LAPDHQ was looking for more victims of this Lyft driver accused of rape, today he was released and no one knows why? Let’s take a wild guess #SanctuaryCity @ICEgov care to explain @AGBecerra why rapists are being let out of jail after days? #TakeBackCalifornia
This is absolutely nuts? How do you go from $2.2 million bail to just “released” and @911LAPD doesn’t know why? We need more than that @JerryBrownGov @DHSgov anybody?

Well it was rumored but now we know it's true, it wasn't just Hillary using a personal device and private email it was Albright, Powell, Rice, Kerry and their immediate staff! No wonder nothing happened to HRC, everyone was putting National Security at risk.
The big solution: remove classified material from unclassified papers, WOW that's a wizardly idea #SMH
They reviewed a very limited sample and found 12 of the 19 contained National Security information 🤣 China must have spent years pointing and laughing at us.
