1/ Btw the “bait” theory, that DJT purposely baited Obama/Clinton into taking corrupt actions, has been strongly reinforced by the revelations since the @GenFlynn plea.
2/ Trump created an environment that looked like he was fighting a backchannel proxy war. Clinton had Ukraine and Trump had Russia. I mean he flew around with Flynn, hired Manafort and was a Roger Stone creation. At every step he played up the Russia angle.
3/ The key bait? Trump’s server made a daily encrypted connection to a Russian bank. It was like a glowing lure that Obama/Clinton couldn’t avoid. It became an all consuming chase. Why? In their minds it would be the ultimate October surprise and “Trump will never be President!”
4/ Why would Trump care to bait them? Well consider the baiting started long before July 2016. In fact it likely led to Clinton’s effort to elevate Trump in the primaries. He manipulated them into helping him thinking they had a destruct button.…
5/ The problem for DOJ/FBI? They needed authorization to breach Trump’s server. They thought they had it in June using the prepackaged dossier but they were rejected. So they had to manufacture more.
6/ So now you can start to see why the DOJ/FBI was in contact with Fusion/Steele. They had the FISA rejection.

DOJ/FBI knew what they would need to get the authorization. Problem? The evidence they needed didn’t exist. It needed to be manufactured. That needed to be outsourced.
7/ Why once he had secured the nomination would Trump want DOJ/FBI chasing his bait? I mean no one normally purposely induces a federal investigation against themselves?!?

He baited them into a general election strategy that required an October surprise that would never come...
8/ The Clinton campaign spent the entire campaign setting up the “Trump is a Putin’s puppet” argument certain they would open Trump’s server and they would have all the evidence they would ever need. #FalseHope
9/ So what have we learned recently? That DOJ/FBI agents that were favorable to Hillary were actively working with Fusion/Steele to get FISA approval and hiding those activities from Congress. The bait was so strong & the potential payoff so great that they couldn’t avoid it!
10/ Some have said why would they need FISA. They were likely spying anyway. Probably so, but to get access to Trump’s server they needed FISA and they believed the encrypted connection to the Russian bank would be the dagger through Ttump’s heart. #Bait
11/ So what’s the implication? If he’s been baiting them since at least 2015 then he’s likely still baiting them now. As @langdaleca says they’re gamblers that lost so much they believe the can’t afford to get up from the table. They’ve bet the house and there’s no going back.
12/ More to come...

1/ It’s almost September. We’re in the home stretch of the midterms and working class Americans are feeling the positive affects of the Trump economic boom. In a survey performed by Harvard-Harris 85% of blue collar workers see their lives headed in the right direction.
2/ These blue collar workers see that things are better off for themselves, 55%, and a whopping 88% say their children will have a better future than they will. It’s not just the economy that is booming, its confidence.
3/ This group of blue collar workers tend to lean Democrat (35-31%) But the see Republicans are doing a better job of helping blue collar Americans (39-36%).

1/ A thread on how Trump will ensure Republicans hold the House in 2018. I say how because it’s as much about the operational and tactical as it is about the message. The special elections are over and Republicans won 8/9.
2/ 89% is a pretty good percentage considering how much money, time, energy and significance that Democrats invested in each of these races.…
3/ It’s not just about the percentage. It’s about how Trump and the RNC tipped these races in the favor of the Republican.

Shhh it’s a secret. Don’t tell anyone.

I’ll give you a hint. It starts with an R.

Yup. You guessed it. Rallies!

1/ Gonna write a quick thread cuz I have no time but this is so crucial.

Read the pics. This is what corruption and manufactured evidence to justify surveillance that is outside the appropriate function of FISA looks like.
2/ The called him Source #1 and never revealed his bias. In fact they only shared his positives. They manipulated the court.
3/ The truth was that DOJ knew of Steele’s bias. Ohr knew. FBI reports reflected they knew. But Ohr himself had a hidden bias, his wife worked for Steele’s employer.

1/ Excellent article by @ByronYork.
Other than Manafort, Mueller has handed off all of his major cases that would seem to help make a collusion case. Seemingly undercutting the idea he will make such a grand claim against any American (Trump).…
2/ The fact that Mueller publicly indicted 12 Russian intelligence officers indicated he has no intention of ever prosecuting anyone. If he had intended to, he would have sealed the indictments and attempted to secure at least one of the defendants. The charges were political.
3/ So why did Mueller indict the 12 intelligence officers publicly? It was absolutely political. A momentary defense of FBI/DOJ. An attempt to validate the Russian interference claim. Will it stand up to the test of time? I don’t think so.

1/ There was no further evidence put forward that Russians hacked than was previously known.

Yet Rod jumps in the pool. If the speculation is right that this was all cover after the fact and the spearfish was a non Russian entity or a CIA operation then Rod has trapped himself.
2/ Because if later it can be shown that it wasn’t the Russians it makes the last 2 years of investigation being managed by Rod look like a railroad and a fake.
3/ Rod has now done two things. He has cleared “any American” (Trump) of knowledge or participation AND he has put his chips in on the “Russians (Putin) did it” theory.

1/ Here’s a question. If POTUS (Nixon) was required to turn over “private” recordings made in the WH shouldn’t FBI agents be required to turn over “private” work related messages?
2/ This is where Huber and age and jury comes in. In the IG report it refers to a denied request to receive “private” emails but the texts clearly show using those coms was tactical and designed to avoid oversight. Huber is very likely to subpoena those records.
3/ Given how bold the corrupt actors were on work devices the odds are those other messages are going to be explosive. So what kind topics may get revealed? Well the heart of the conspiracy to engineer the soft landing that let Coney conclude “no reasonable prosecutor”. Guccifer.
