    Trump’s Prime-Time Address

    But I felt that the notion of a manufactured crisis was still hanging in the air, and I thought in some ways one of the most pertinent observations that someone made about this speech was Stuart Stevens, a former campaign adviser to Mitt Romney who set on Twitter. ... I think President Trump tonight was speaking to a public that fundamentally doesn't share his belief that this is a crisis and I'm not sure he changed enough mines. ... That would be an indication that President Trump has sufficiently frightened the public and turned a manufactured crisis into a genuine one.

    Trump’s Prime-Time Address
    to every citizen, call Congress and tell them to finally, after all of these decades, secure our border.

    They should call their Congress people and demand action on this issue. But I felt that the notion of a manufactured crisis was still hanging in the air, and I thought in some ways one of the most pertinent observations that someone made about this speech was Stuart Stevens, a former campaign adviser to Mitt Romney who set on Twitter.

    There are numerous examples of presidential addresses made to calm a frightened public. This will be the first to frighten a calm public. I think President Trump tonight was speaking to a public that fundamentally doesn't share his belief that this is a crisis and I'm not sure he changed enough mines.

    And if people end up calling their Congress person and say I just watched the president speak, you need to vote for this wall. That would be an indication that President Trump has sufficiently frightened the public and turned a manufactured crisis into a genuine one.

    I think that's right. But I think here's the issue. I think a lot of people who are gonna call their Congress people are going to say You need to reopen the Agriculture Department so farmers get their rebates. You need to reopen social services so people don't stop getting their food stamps. I think the problem for President Trump is the rial crisis, maybe the growing one from having a government that continues to be shut down and not from the one that exists along the southern.

    border. Right? So which volume of calls will be higher in the next few days? I.

    think that's the big issue, and I think it might be the government shutdown.

    When I took the oath of office, I swore to protect our country.

    and that is what.

    I will always do.

    So help me God, Thank you and good night.

    And then it was the Democrats.

    The Voters Trump Is Losing

    You know, I think that this lead is different from Hillary Clinton's lead doesn't mean that Donald Trump can't win. ... at the White House, on Twitter.

    0 Hours, 17 Minutes, 32 Seconds

    The Voters Trump Is Losing
    How could I not.

    So what is different about this lead? If anything that makes you and should make us.

    trust.

    well, I think we should all approach this with a lot of humility. I mean, pulling it's tough of the day before the election. It's.

    really tough. Five months before.

    the national environment has changed a lot in the last five months.

    It can change a lot in the next five months. That said.

    You know, I think that this lead is different from Hillary Clinton's lead doesn't mean that Donald Trump can't win.

    but it is different. It's different in two ways. One.

    it's a light early. Joe Biden's up by more. If the polls were just is wrong, as they were in 2016.

    and the election were held tomorrow.

    Joe Biden would still went e mean the polls could be more wrong. There's no law. Poland says that 2016 is the worst case scenario or something. But this is a bigger advantage than Hillary Clinton had down the final stretch. It's a more persistent advantage and it's wider than even her peaks. The second difference is a method, a logical one, which is that we are much more focused on the battleground states. This time Then we were in 2016 and 2016. We had really good national polling and we did not have very much good polling in the battleground states. We have resolved to flip that around.

    to try and deal with the things that went wrong four years ago. None of that ensures that our results will be perfect if the election were held tomorrow. But it is a reason why it is less likely that these polls would be fundamentally wrong in the same way that so many state polls were fundamentally wrong four years ago.

    A key caveat, however, seems to be that the lead that Joe Biden has developed over these past few months has occurred when he has been largely invisible, right? I mean, this has been a very unusual campaign in the sense that the president is as visible as he's ever been every day.

    at the White House, on Twitter.

    Does Mueller Have a Plan for Trump?

    On Thursday morning, he took to Twitter and it being the one year anniversary of Bob Mueller being appointed, the president trying in on that saying, Congratulations, America. ... this acknowledgement from Mueller that he will not be indicting the president was in part about putting President Trump Eddies. ... The Trump administration will announce a new rule on Friday that would cut off federal funding to clinics that provide abortion or even discussed the procedure with patients.

    0 Hours, 15 Minutes, 40 Seconds

    Does Mueller Have a Plan for Trump?
    what has been the.

    president's reaction to this discovery by his legal team? Or this concession that they've drawn from a special counsel that they won't indict him? He's always seemed very eager to have people know that he's not under investigation or there's not gonna be charged. So.

    is this a relief to him? It doesn't appear so, at least by what he was tweeting about today. On Thursday morning, he took to Twitter and it being the one year anniversary of Bob Mueller being appointed, the president trying in on that saying, Congratulations, America. We're now into the second year of the greatest witch hunt in American history, and there is still no collusion in no obstruction. The only collusion was that done by Democrats who were unable to win an election despite spending of far more money and then following that up with, despite the disgusting, illegal and unwarranted witch hunt. We have had the most successful 1st 17 month administration in U. S. History, by far.

    sorry to the fake news media and haters, but that's the way it is.

    So if getting.

    this acknowledgement from Mueller that he will not be indicting the president was in part about putting President Trump Eddies.

    why is the.

    president still so upset about this investigation? If he knows he's not going to be charged because the cloud still exists? There are still these enormous questions about his conduct in office about his campaign.

    and Bob Mueller is still investigating, and he's still looking into things and has indicted several members of his campaign, and it's not clear where.

    he's headed.

    Mike, thank you very much. Thanks for having me.

    years. What else you need to know today. The Trump administration will announce a new rule on Friday that would cut off federal funding to clinics that provide abortion or even discussed the procedure with patients.

    Why Trump Is Firing Sessions Now

    Trump tweeting. ... He should have never recused himself in interviews, he took the job, and then he said, I'm going to recuse myself on Twitter So he made what I consider to be a very terrible mistake for the country. ... And even while Trump is attacking him so relentlessly, Sessions is continuing to implement Trump's agenda.

    0 Hours, 8 Minutes, 38 Seconds

    Why Trump Is Firing Sessions Now
    In the meantime, even though he hasn't gotten rid of sessions, he embarks on a campaign to undermine and attack him publicly.

    Trump tweeting.

    It comes in tweets.

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions has taken a very weak position on Hillary Clinton crimes.

    and it comes in an interview in the Oval Office.

    with us. Right after.

    Well, Section should have never recused him where.

    he says, on the record.

    he should have told me before he took the job and I would have picked somebody else.

    I never would have made Jeff sessions my attorney general if I knew he was going.

    to recuse himself.

    Even my enemies say that Jeff Sessions should have told you that he was going to recuse himself, and then you wouldn't have put him in. He goes after him, and Jeff Sessions should have never let it happen. He should have never recused himself in interviews, he took the job, and then he said, I'm going to recuse myself on Twitter So he made what I consider to be a very terrible mistake for the country.

    But you'll figure that out anywhere that he can. I told you before, I'm very disappointed with the attorney general. Why wouldn't you say I'm going to recuse myself? I wouldn't have put him in that position, but he's in the position now is going to stay in the position. I'm not going to tell you that. We'll see what happens. We will see what happens. Time will tell.

    Time will tell.

    It's really interesting because even.

    while Sessions knows that, he's probably operating on borrowed time.

    And even while Trump is attacking him so relentlessly, Sessions is continuing to implement Trump's agenda.

    If you cross the border.

    unlawfully, even a first defense, then we're going to prosecute and some of the.

    most high profile and controversial policies from the Trump administration are written out or articulated by Jeff Sessions like Family Separation. For example.

    If you smuggling illegal alien across the border, then we'll prosecute you for smuggling.

    Trump’s Prime-Time Address

    Same points out through Twitter through news conferences through all the ways he normally does. ... And one way, perhaps, to measure the success of the speech is whether Mr Trump will succeed in the call he issued at the end of his remarks, he told people.

    0 Hours, 12 Minutes, 30 Seconds

    Trump’s Prime-Time Address
    Well, I think that's a good question, because I don't think that this speech did break through in the way that the White House hoped it would. The president tonight needed to advance the ball he needed to give Americans a new reason for believing in the necessity of his message on border security. And to do that, I think he needed to lay out a new set of fax or a new argument behind the facts. And I don't believe he really did that. In fact, if you look at the second half of the speech after that very sober and measured opening, he really then shifts into very familiar and quite inflammatory rhetoric.

    Day after day, precious lives are cut short by those who have violated our borders.

    In California, an Air Force veteran was raped.

    murdered.

    I'm beaten to death with a hammer.

    by an illegal alien with a long criminal history. He.

    talks about Americans being killed by illegal aliens.

    in Georgia, and illegal Alien was recently charged with murder for killing, beheading.

    and dismembering his neighbor.

    He says at one point.

    How much more American blood.

    must we shed before Congress does its job? It.

    really turns into a very, very partisan argument.

    Democrats in Congress have refused to acknowledge the crisis.

    and they have refused to provide our brave border agents with the tools they desperately need to protect our families and our nation.

    But so if he's.

    not really making any new points, why the presidential address at all. It seems the president has quite effectively been getting thes. Same points out through Twitter through news conferences through all the ways he normally does.

    Interestingly, Michael, we've learned since you spoke to our colleague Michael Grynbaum earlier this evening that it was really White House aides. It was his advisers who pushed him to do this speech. It was not something he was particularly excited about on his own. In fact, in and off the record session with television news anchors earlier today, he basically told them he thought this strategy was, at some level pointless, which is something that we have reported in the last several hours. And I think the president realizes that to some extent he's running out of time in this whole debate. The federal government's been closed now for 17 days, and that closing is really starting to bite. And I think he realizes that unless he can turn this debate relatively soon, he's going to be left to consider more radical moves, one of which, declaring a national emergency is something that he may yet do. I think perhaps this was, if you will, a second last ditch effort to galvanize the American people and to turn what it seemed at times a manufactured crisis into a genuine crisis. And one way, perhaps, to measure the success of the speech is whether Mr Trump will succeed in the call he issued at the end of his remarks, he told people.

    Bob Woodward on Trump, Nixon and Anonymity
    Not about stature, but it's all about position, because what are they first hand witness to.

    firsthand source.

    But it can be a vicious cycle where these sources air used, and then the president attacks it and uses that to undermine it gives him ammunition.

    I'm not sure it undermines it. I remember during Watergate, once we joked we had a good story. And we said All we need is a White House denial. Now, give this credibility.

    The president has attacked you on Twitter. Do you see that as the modern day validity.

    No. No, I mean, it looked people have said, Oh, how do you feel? I said, look, he has the right.

    to say what he wants his first Amendment rights. And I feel really comfortable with the picture I've presented in the evidence.

    Hello, Bob. President from power. You? How you How you doing? Okay, well, I'm.

    I.

    feel like you had masterfully gotten the conversation you had with him. Recorded. It enabled you to show the lengths you went to to get him to I.

    wasn't particularly masterful. I just said I would like to record this Mr President when he called and he said OK, so I turned from Carter.

    Who did you ask about speaking to? May? Well, about six people. Uh, you know, they don't tell May.

    but the release of that showed your work. It showed what you had done.

    What, are you naming names, or do you just say sources.

    Names riel incident. So no. But you do you name sources I mean, you naming the people that just say, You know, people have said.

    I say at two oclock on this day, the following happened and everyone who's there, including yourself.

    How Facebook Is Undermining Black Lives Matter

    President Trump. ... So Twitter applies this fact checking label toe President Trump's tweets. ... President Trump put out this statement, which he posted to Twitter and also to Facebook.

    0 Hours, 19 Minutes, 21 Seconds

    How Facebook Is Undermining Black Lives Matter
    have even been employees who have resigned over Mark Zuckerberg's decisions to essentially let Trump get away with things that other users wouldn't be able to Facebook's employees. You know, many of them they live in Silicon Valley. They tend to be more liberal. They don't like the idea that the product that they spend their days and nights building is being used to put out propaganda and misinformation.

    Employees like Andrew Crow, head of design for Facebook's portal products, have taken to Twitter writing comments such as quote giving a platform to incite violence and spread. This information is unacceptable.

    And they have started vocally objecting to Mark Zuckerberg's decisions.

    while Jason Toff, identified as director of product management, wrote quote, I work at Facebook and I am not proud of how we're showing up.

    And that's a riel pressure, because.

    Silicon Valley is a very interesting place in that the employees of these companies wield a ton of power. It's a very competitive labour market, and if your Facebook you can't afford toe, have your employees be walking out and resigning, it's not right for your business. Long term.

    Kevin, from everything you've just said, Twitter is being proactive here, Facebook, much less so, but I.

    just want to.

    make sure that we're not oversimplified. That's because.

    yes, we know Twitter has chosen to label certain tweets, at least by the president as violating their terms. Fact. Check them. We know that they have taken a pass on political ads.

    and the Facebook has not done any of those. But in reality is what Twitter is doing meaningfully different and better than what Facebook is doing.

    I mean, Twitter still has a lot of work to do to ensure that people are not.

    you know, threatening and harassing and using hate speech against each other. But the thing that I think is really starting to differentiate these companies from one another is how they're responding to this moment. You know, this historic movement for civil rights, this historic election, where in some ways a lot of people feel like the future of not just the next four years but of democracy is on the line. And I think these companies are understanding that they will be judged by history in some ways for the decisions that they make right now.

    ‘Send Her Back’: White Voters and Trump’s Path to Re-election

    the majority of Americans disapprove of President Trump.

    Nate Cohn on why in 2020.

    Democrats will still have such, ah, hard time defeating.

    It's Wednesday, July 24th.

    I've noticed on.

    Twitter that people are kind of mad at you, and it's on Lee July of 2019.

    They are. They are.

    I think you should consider piecing yourself.

    I should consider what, piecing yourself? Oh, pacing myself.

    Yeah, that probably be best for my mental health.

    Um, give.

    us.

    need the top line summary of what you reported last week, the thing that riled up a few people. So basically, the president's approval ratings are underwater nationwide, which means that there are more people who disapprove of the president then who approve of him. But despite that, the president is better positioned to win reelection than the national polls suggest, because he is stronger in critical battleground states. Then he is nationwide, and in fact, his position in the battleground states with respect to the country is even better than it. Waas In 2016 when he was able to win the presidency while losing the national vote by two points. So it allows for the possibility that the president could win the Electoral College and therefore the presidency, while losing the national vote by an even wider margin than he did in 2016.

    How exactly does that work? It works because of the Electoral College, and in most states, Electoral College votes are awarded on a winner take all basis. So what that means that the president can barely hold on to a bunch of states. He gets the same number of Electoral College votes as he would if he had won them by a lot.

    Trump Wanted to Scrap Obamacare. His Party Didn’t.

    So what happens in the last 24 hours or so to this Trump lead project to try to strike down, repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act after days of other Republicans expressing public discomfort with where the president was headed. ... President Trump on the retreat. ... and his response was to go onto Twitter and to declare that they are totally going to do all the things that he said they were going to do.

    0 Hours, 11 Minutes, 48 Seconds

    Trump Wanted to Scrap Obamacare. His Party Didn’t.
    There was always going to be tension in the Republican message about Democratic radicalism on health care. Because if you are running in 2020 on the idea that Democrats were going to blow up the current system and replace it with European style medicine, you're kind of implicitly defending the status quo system as it exists under Obama care. It's an extraordinarily awkward position for Republicans to be. And can you be opposed to Democratic proposals to make the health care system even more liberal, even mawr, regulated or structured by the government without essentially defending the system that Barack Obama put in place.

    We don't know how they're going to walk that line. We don't know to what extent they'll even try. But the president's current approach, which is to say that Democrats will do something drastic and bad to your health care, and I'm not quite going to tell you what I'm gonna do yet doesn't seem sustainable. So what happens in the last 24 hours or so to this Trump lead project to try to strike down, repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act after days of other Republicans expressing public discomfort with where the president was headed.

    So I made it clear to him we were not going to be doing that in the Senate.

    Mitch McConnell, the Senate majority leader, conveyed in no uncertain terms to the White House that this was a non starter in the Senate, that the president was free to do what he wanted to do on health care, but that Senate Republicans were not going to be taking the lead on this. It was not a fight they wanted, period full stop.

    so we don't have a misunderstanding about that. Will not be doing comprehensive in the Senate. The president seems to.

    have gotten the message.

    President Trump on the retreat.

    No, I wanted to delay it myself. I want to put it after the election.

    and his response was to go onto Twitter and to declare that they are totally going to do all the things that he said they were going to do. But at a much later date, after the 2020 election, right, he cited the date 2021. We will do all this right after the election, right after an election, when in his construction he would be re elected. Republicans would hold the Senate and they would take back control of the House. So that's not just a delay of game that is setting a whole bunch of other conditions on what would need to happen to get there. Were you surprised Alex that the president back down on this so quickly? I was surprised by how fast it happened. I wasn't surprised that he sort of came up with a really big theory of what should happen next and then eventually let it disintegrate because we've seen that pattern a number of times. But to pick a fight this big and to stick with it for so little time is the definition of politically counterproductive. So now we are basically back where we started. The Affordable Care Act is likely to remain the law of the land. So what do we learn from this week long ordeal? Well, the biggest thing we learned is that the politics of health care have been turned on their head in the last couple of years and that the Affordable Care Act is no longer a liability for Democrats and that Republicans, whether they want to acknowledge it or not, have largely abandoned the fight.

    And it's this moment where you can see that you know, she is coming to Capitol Hill, really, as an activist with an agenda to really push things forward in a way that is not your typical member of Congress. She's not sitting there, you know, waiting for her committee assignments. She's sitting in outside of Nancy Pelosi's office, but it also then starts to play out. Over many weeks and months, Alexandra Ocasio Cortez in the squad, will vote for Nancy Pelosi for speaker, and you know, they all have some pretty good committee assignments. Thanks to Nancy Pelosi, they're able to have a seat at the table. But rather than simply acting like most freshmen, members of Congress do where they may be. You introduced some legislation here and there and sort of keep their mouth mostly.

    shut. Theo.

    very active on sort of demanding action on various legislation that they think is not getting enough attention.

    We're going to go in there, run, impeach the motherfucker on.

    way. The representative.

    using Twitter and using the activist community that they're very close to just sort of really start to criticize Pelosi and some of their Democratic colleagues for essentially sort of tiptoeing around what they think should be much bolder.

    story over the weekend that looked at a different Trump Tower meeting than the one we've all become familiar with. Where Donald Trump Jr met with Russians who were promising dirt on Hillary Clinton.

    Julie Davis covers the White House for the times. This.

    time, the meeting was with officials from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, and their discussions with the Trump campaign officials about potentially helping out the campaign. The reason it matters is because it's the first indication that we have that. Mueller is not just looking at whether the Trump campaign worked with Russians during the election season, but also whether they may have worked with other foreign governments who were either offering up or actually providing help to Donald Trump and whether they were also coordinating with the Russians. So it just gives a sense of an avenue that we weren't really aware existed in this investigation of the entire Russian meddling picture.

    So this is sort of the latest sign that the Mueller investigation continues to expand in its scope, and this time it's literally expanding too entire other countries.

    We just got in a tweet from the president elect Donald Trump on Twitter. President elect Trump has no problem using social Media to call out big business. This morning, Donald Trump tweeted that the costs of Lockheed Martin's F 35 program were out of control. More than four billion cancel order, he says. Toyota Motor said, will build new plant in Baja Mexico, no way, build the plant in US or.

    after the Tweet Lock shares tumbled almost 3%.

    minutes after you saw Boeing stock slide 1%. Mr.

    Trump's tweet caused Boeing stock to plunge for recovering throughout the day.

    I think we've seen some really interesting responses to these moments where the president calls out some specific company.

    Monday.

    Well, on Monday, the first thing that he did was he read a tweet from the head of Merck Pharmaceuticals, Kenneth Frazier, quitting this business board, Merck CEO Kenneth Frazier saying in a statement released on Twitter. I am resigning from the president's American Manufacturing Council, adding America's leaders must honor our fundamental values by clearly rejecting expressions of hatred, bigotry and group supremacy. And his tweet essentially said that he believed that there was no place in this country for racism and leadership was about calling that out. Frazier is the highest profile business leader to publicly distance himself from Trump on the president, who did not call out white supremacists on Twitter, decided to attack the CEO on Twitter.

    The president has tweeted. Now that Ken Frazier of Merck Pharma has resigned from President's manufacturing council, he will have more time to in all caps, lower rip off a drug prices exclamation point.

And the president, aware that he can't make policy changes via statements on Twitter, cause Pentagon is saying that he was making the announcement of the policy change, so that hasn't been formulated. ...

    it. Thank you. Happy. Really appreciate it. Sure thing.

    here is what else you need to know. Today. America's highest military officers says that transgender people will continue to serve in the armed services following President Trump's announcement on Twitter that they would be banned from the military. General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the military's policy towards transgender people would not change until the president and the secretary of defense had issued a formal order.

    In a sign of the confusion surrounding the issue, the White House referred questions about the president's tweets to the Defense Department. The White House will work with the Department of Defense and all of the relevant parties. Teoh. Make sure that we fully implement this policy moving forward. While the Defense Department referred questions back to the White House. What is the policy? And the president, aware that he can't make policy changes via statements on Twitter, cause Pentagon is saying that he was making the announcement of the policy change, so that hasn't been formulated.

    Like I said, they were gonna have to work out the details on how that all moves forward to lawfully implement that.

    policy.

    change.

    from this point. And not since British troops paid a visit in 18 14 as the White House had so many fires to put out. In an expletive filled interview with The New Yorker magazine, the president's new communications director Anthony Scaramucci called the White House chief of staff Reince Priebus Ah, quote paranoid schizophrenic leaker and vowed to get him fired. Scaramucci also suggested that White House aides would be prosecuted for leaking embarrassing information about him and said Quote, I have 3 to 4 people all fire tomorrow because he suspected them of being disloyal to the president. Scaramucci later released a statement but did not apologize. Quote. I sometimes use colorful language. I will refrain in this arena, he said, but not give up The passionate fight for Donald Trump's agenda.

    Mitt Romney’s Lonely Vote

    Trump and maybe what his colleagues in the Senate. ... Trump. ... On Tuesday night, President Trump himself began attacking Mitt Romney on Twitter, promoting a video that calls Romney slippery and stealthy and without any evidence, claims that Romney is quote a secret asset of the Democratic Party.

    Mitt Romney’s Lonely Vote
    The other part, in the context of Mitt Romney's career, is again, as you mentioned, this is not something Mitt Romney has traditionally done. Now you could argue the counterfactual if he was up for re election in Utah next year. Would he vote differently if he was thinking about running for president and going for the Republican nomination in 2020? Would he vote differently? I think at this point he has lived a long career. He has had a long, long life, and he would say at this point that he is answering two different forces.

    regardless of whether it changes any of the dynamics of this Congress and the Republican Party and this president.

    Yeah, I don't think it'll change any dynamics at all, except that Mitt Romney's life is going to get a lot more uncomfortable for reasons that I think he can handle. Given how he weighed this decision.

    well, to that point, what has been the reaction Ferrand in the hours since he went on the floor, gave that speech and then cast a vote to convict the president.

    I would say quite unpleasant.

    everything from the president, United States son Don Jr. Calling for his expulsion from the Senate, his own niece, Ron um, Romney McDaniel, the chair of the Republican National Committee, publicly rebuking him basically on Twitter, his own niece, his own knees. Yes, calls for recall elections in Utah, things like that. Now this is a window into the kinds of things that are in store for someone who descends from President.

    Trump and maybe what his colleagues in the Senate.

    deliberately avoided A by not doing what he did.

    It is a faith that they have voted to avoid. I mean, it's obviously there are a lot of things at work when you decide to make a vote like this. But the noise is an absolutely undeniable part of the experience of voting against the interests of the person who leads your party. Donald.

    Trump.

    Thank you, Mark. Thank you, Michael.

    times gets Donald Trump Junior's emails about an offer from the Russian government. I love hero.

    and what Isis left behind.

    It's Wednesday, July 12th.

    Matt Apuzzo. It's Tuesday morning in the Times newsroom. What's happening.

    We've got the emails that we've been. We've been searching for these emails for days. These are the emails between Donald Trump Jr and Rob Goldstone, the friend who is going to set up this meeting a Trump tower with a Russian lawyer. We're calling around and we're asking people for comment. And that means of course, we call Don Jr and say we have the emails. We want your comment and we're gonna publish your deadline is 11 a.m. So.

    he.

    understands. At 11 oclock boom! This big story is gonna.

    land, right? Exactly. There's no question. We told him we have to have a comment and this shouldn't have been a surprise, right? They must have known somebody was gonna get the emails. So we said you have until 11.

    OK, and then what happens? Well.

    then he started tweeting right Then he goes on Twitter and started publishing the emails himself.

    And he did that at 11 a.m. The deadline, right? Which means he was trying to self publish around the.

    New York Times. Sure. And I mean, that's right. I mean, he had said he would send us a statement, and he did. He also sent the world a statement. It wasn't beyond the realm of possibility, and it was certainly not something we hadn't considered A media that Don Jr would be on Twitter is certainly a realistic assumption of how this could go. So we had a story that was essentially ready to go. As soon as the tweets started coming, we published, and I don't even think he'd finished tweeting out the string of emails before before republished.

You already have Democrats talking about what Trump had done on Twitter may have just earned him a new additional article of impeachment at least cause for impeachment that in addition to the case for bribery or abuse of power that they're currently making, this may constitute witness intimidation, potentially another impeachable offense.

    The Latest: ‘It’s Very Intimidating’
    I and others have.

    demonstrably made things better.

    Investor, um.

    you shown the courage to come forward today and testify.

    And now the president real time is attacking you.

    What effect do you think that has on other witnesses? Willingness to come forward.

    and expose wrongdoing.

    Well, uh, it's very intimidating.

    Dine designed to intimidate, is it not.

    I mean, I can't speak to what the president is trying to do, but I think the effect is to be intimidating.

    Well.

    I want to let you know, master, that some of us here.

    take witness. Intimidation varies very seriously.

    So what you're seeing here is some pretty deft maneuvering on the part of the Democrats. Clearly, some aid or somebody sitting behind shift saw what was happening in Twitter and started whispering in this year. All of a sudden, he's able to then bring the president's behavior into the hearing room in real time to strengthen the very case that Democrats are making to illustrate the same points that they're talking about.

    and very quickly. After this happens, the committee goes on break. You already have Democrats talking about what Trump had done on Twitter may have just earned him a new additional article of impeachment at least cause for impeachment that in addition to the case for bribery or abuse of power that they're currently making, this may constitute witness intimidation, potentially another impeachable offense.
