‼️A Sunday morning Mike Pence thread‼️
Pence's plan to outlast Trump - He was Manafort's pick
He plays the part of unctuous toady so fully that the conservative writer George Will called him "America's most repulsive public figure." But don't be fooled. The vice president is
doggedly pursuing his own ambitions on the side. The Oval Office has been his goal since high school. He has seeded the federal government with his loyalists and is building his own nationwide political organization
During the Cold War Washington feared Moscow was seeking to turn microwave radiation into covert weapons of mind control. More recently American military itself sought to develop microwave arms that could invisibly beam
painfully loud booms and even spoken words into people’s heads.
😱Now, doctors and scientists say such unconventional weapons may have caused the baffling symptoms that, starting in late 2016, hit more than three dozen American diplomats and family members in Cuba and China.

2. How is Trump’s company implicated in all this?
Trump Organization okayed $420,000 in reimbursements to Cohen to pay women, then tried to hide the true nature of those payments by describing them as legal fees and retainers.🤔 3. What else does Cohen know about Trump?

so Collins and his congressional pall have been using their positions on the committees and boards to make millions. Surprised? Evidentally there’s no rule against it. That’s about to change, but in the meantime...
Mr. Collins may have been the largest investor in health companies on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, but one-third of its members also bought and sold biotech, pharmaceutical and medical device stocks.
