THREAD: Recently, we’ve learned more details about whom Team🇺🇸Mueller has interviewed, and that Mueller plans to interview Trump.🤗

What’s *at least* as interesting: who‘s NOT been publicly included on Mueller’s interview list. Most conspicuously👉🏼Mike PENCE‼️1/
Given Mike Pence's role during the campaign, the transition and now in the WH, Team🇺🇸Mueller *surely* will interview Pence (or already has). But in what capacity? Meaning: how does Pence fit into Mueller's #TrumpRussia investigation⁉️ 2/
Basically, it boils down to this for PENCE:

👉🏼Pence is "innocent", saw nothing, did nothing during his entire tenure w/Trump, or
👉🏼Pence is "innocent" himself, but witnessed criminal acts by others, or
👉🏼Pence participated in criminal acts.

We can throw out the first option, because at a minimum, we *know* that Pence KNEW about Flynn's shady #Russian & Turkish contacts, and also had some knowledge of the events leading up to Comey's firing.🤔 4/

The 2nd option (Pence witnessed criminal acts by others) would mean that Pence is a WITNESS for Team🇺🇸Mueller's probe, such as for Trump's alleged #ObstructionOfJustice.🤨

If true, then Mueller surely will have interviewed Pence BEFORE Trump‼️ 5/

The last option (Mueller believes that Pence is criminally culpable) would mean that Pence is a TARGET in Team🇺🇸Mueller's probe. 6/

If Pence is a WITNESS of Trump's alleged #ObstructionOfJustice, then we soon should hear news that Pence was interviewed/will be interviewed by Mueller BEFORE Trump's time in the barrel.🤔 7/
We *know* from public reports that Mueller, at a minimum, plans to grill Trump about Flynn's tenure in the WH and his firing, along with Comey's firing.🧐 8/
Misha🇷🇺Flynn supposedly was fired for lying to Pence.🙄

Yet Pence LED the transition👉🏼KT McFarland emailed that *Flynn would be speaking w/the #Russian🇷🇺Ambassador, Sergey Kislyak* just hours after President Obama’s #sanctions were announced‼️ 9/

Pence LIED, when he claimed not to know of Flynn's shady ties w/#Russia or Turkey.

👉@RepCummings sent Pence a letter in Nov'16
👉Early Jan'17, Flynn told the transition team (LED by Pence) that he was being investigated
👉Sally Yates warned the WH‼️10/
Again, given Pence's role, he has to be a WITNESS, at a minimum, in Mueller's probe. Thus, it's surprising that we have not heard anything publicly about his status in the investigation.🤨 11/
If Pence has NOT been interviewed before Trump, that could mean that Pence is a TARGET (defendant) in Mueller's probe for alleged crimes OTHER than what Mueller plans to discuss w/Trump (eg, #ObstructionOfJustice). 🤔 12/
If Mueller is going after Trump *NOW* for #ObstructionOfJustice, but needs the investigation(s) to finish of other alleged crimes by Trump, as well as those by PENCE, then that could explain why Pence wouldn't be interviewed before Trump.🤨 13/
Another option that could explain why we've heard NOTHING about Pence being interviewed👉🏼Pence FLIPPED and is cooperating with Mueller‼️ 14/
If Pence is a #mole and continues to collect intel, then Mueller has ZERO incentive to mention anything publicly about him.🤨 15/
Hard to say what Pence's role is now. We know that Pence's lawyers begged Mueller for an interview last summer and were told to pound sand. Witnesses tend to be interviewed EARLY in probes, whereas TARGETS (especially the biggest fish) are interviewed LAST‼️ 16/
All of the publicly available evidence suggests that Pence is a TARGET, not simply a witness, in Mueller's probe.🧐

Whatever role that Pence ultimately plays, expect for Pence to have his time in the barrel SOON‼️

Trump's deputy campaign chair Rick Gates solicited proposals (#felony) from Israeli firm Psy Group to create fake online personas, use social media manipulation & gather intel to help defeat @GOP primary opponents (@tedcruz) & @HillaryClinton🤨1/
Gates wasn't interested in Psy Group b/c other Trump aides oversaw social media. George Nader & Joel Zamel (Psy Group owner) met w/Don Jr & offered to help *THROW THE ELECTION* at an Aug'16 meeting arranged by Erik Prince‼️

Nader is COOPERATING.😎 2/

George Birnbaum (Arthur Finkelstein protégé/@GOP consultant who worked for Netanyahu & other Israeli officials) initially pitched Gates on using social media influence/manipulation to sway @GOP delegates toward Trump.🤨 3/

🔥@GOP operative Peter Smith raised >$100,000 to pay #Russian🇷🇺hackers to find Clinton’s emails. 10 days after telling his story to the @WSJ, he committed suicide, yet a friend spoke w/him about a new project hours before his death & says he was “excited.”
Smith continued his quest for HRC’s emails *after* the US warned of #Russian🇷🇺interference & went to extraordinary lengths to ensure secrecy, communicating via saved DRAFT (unsent) emails in a shared Gmail account.🤨
🔥One sent email said the >$100k in donations were to be sent to a DC-based scholarship fund for **Russian students**👉🏼“This $100k total with the $50k received from you (Smith) will allow us to fund the Washington Scholarship Fund for the Russian students for the promised $150K.”

Hey @SenatorCollins,

It’s not too late to change your vote! #Kavanaugh LIED to the Senate (#felony) about his finances.🤨

Who paid off his debt? If his family paid, did he report this income to the IRS⁉️

If the House flips, @tedlieu WILL investigate‼️

Hey @lisamurkowski,

You were right and courageous to OPPOSE #Kavanaugh‼️

You might want to reconsider “pairing” your vote with @SteveDaines, because justice will come for #Kavanaugh, sooner than later.😉

Hey @Sen_JoeManchin,

We Democrats realize that you are in a tough re-election battle, but backing #Kavanaugh only brings you more scorn from the @GOP and erodes your much-needed support from @TheDemocrats base.

It’s not too late: vote NO on #Kavanaugh‼️

Connie Chung to Dr. Ford: “I, too, was sexually assaulted—not 36 years ago but ~50 years ago. I kept my dirty little secret to myself. Silence for 5 decades...The exact date & year are fuzzy. But details of the event are vivid—forever seared in my memory.”
Connie Chung: “Christine, I, too, am terrified as I reveal this publicly. I can’t sleep. I can’t eat. Can you? If you can’t, I understand. I am frightened, I am scared, I can’t even cry.”😰

Chung: “I wish I could forget this truthful event, but I cannot because it is the truth. I am writing to you b/c I know that exact dates, exact years are insignificant. We remember exactly what happened to us & who did it to us. We remember the truth forever.”

I #BelieveHer.❤️

Charles Ludington, a former varsity basketball player & friend of #Kavanaugh at @Yale plans to deliver a statement to the @FBI field office in Raleigh on Monday detailing **violent drunken behavior** by Kavanaugh in college. 1/

Ludington says #Kavanaugh initiated a fight that led to the ARREST of a friend: “When Brett got drunk, he was often belligerent & aggressive...” 2/
“On one of the last occasions I purposely socialized with Brett, I witnessed him respond to a semi-hostile remark, not by defusing the situation, but by throwing his beer in the man’s face and starting a fight that ended with one of our mutual friends in jail.”😳 3/

Rod Rosenstein suggested last year that he secretly record Trump to expose "chaos" consuming the administration & discussed recruiting cabinet members to invoke the #25thAmendment.

Will Trump use this as an excuse to fire Rosenstein⁉️

Rosenstein made his remarks about the #25thAmendment & secretly recording Trump in meetings & conversations w/other DOJ & FBI officials. Several people (briefed either on the events themselves or on memos written by FBI officials, including McCabe) described the episodes.🤨
Rosenstein reportedly told McCabe that he might be able to persuade Jeff Sessions & John Kelly to mount an effort to invoke the #25thAmendment.

All of these incidents allegedly occurred around the time that @Comey was fired. Rosenstein was very distressed & felt he was used.🤔
