Adam Schiff

@RepAdamSchiff
Deadline to turn over any tapes of Comey conversations to House Intel – if they exist – is Friday. Time is running out for WH to comply.

REMEMBER both Trump and his spokesperson stated he would say whether he has a Audi tape or not..if not then he alluded to basically lying if he has one then he must turn it over.....

EVEN his recent lawyer on the Sunday talk shows stated we would hear this week about the tape and or lack of tape.....

RIGHT now though Trump is doing everything to distract from his statements about the tape in the hope the MSM "forgets about it"..which they will not...

SO BASICALLY bluffing is the Trump new word for lying??????

Gingrich: Trump was trying to 'outbluff' Comey by teasing the existence of tapes
http://read.bi/2rZj2Zz

IF one rereads the Trump tweet...that was not bluffing THAT was a threat that Gingirch is trying to repackage as "just bluff".....

Trump still somehow does not believe the Mexican word for NO when it comes to them having to pay for a Wall built by Trump and his merry band.

He has been told by the current Mexican President NO and the former Mexican President NO so NO seems to be their answer.....

Trump on The Wall™: “a solar wall, so it creates energy and pays for itself…Mexico will have to pay much less money

Appears that in this segment he lied again...he indicated that the crowd was the first to be told about "his idea" which it was not for the solar panels.....BUT he mentioned it publicly in the WH two weeks ago....and that comment was carried in MSM....

Trump on a twitter rant again...and as usual largely incorrect in his statements.....

Donald J. Trump‏
#@realDonaldTrump

Mehr
...Why did the DNC REFUSE to turn over its Server to the FBI, and still hasn't? It's all a big Dem scam and excuse for losing the election!

Donald J. Trump‏
#@realDonaldTrump

...Why did Democratic National Committee turn down the DHS offer to protect against hacks (long prior to election). It's all a big Dem HOAX!

NOTE...ANOTHER Trump lie....DHS offered all States hacking overwatch BUT THIS is where Trump lies again NO GOP state took the DHS offer up...

DHS stated 21 State voter databases saw some form of Russian hacking..TRUMP says nothing about this did he?????

Donald J. Trump‏
#@realDonaldTrump 2 Std.

By the way, if Russia was working so hard on the 2016 Election, it all took place during the Obama Admin. Why didn't they stop them?

Donald J. Trump‏
#@realDonaldTrump

Former Homeland Security Advisor Jeh Johnson is latest top intelligence official to state there was no grand scheme between Trump & Russia.

NOTE...this is a lie as Johnson never stated this at all....he was answering questions about the election hacking ...

THIS is what Trump himself does not make sense with...IF all was a hoax and FAKE then WHY did he do this.....????

http://thebea.st/2rFrZI5?source=twitter&via=desktop#…


WHY if Trump is so sure that all of this Russian stuff is a total and complete hoax THEN why ask Comey, Coates and Rogers and the CIA Director to intercede with the FBI to stop the Flynn investigation and BASICALLY lie that Trump was not involved.....

DOES this make sense for a person NOT involved in anything...???

DHS official: Russia targeted election-related systems in 21 states
http://thehill.com/policy/cybersecur...eted-by-russia

Quote:
Officials would not disclose which states were targeted, emphasizing the need to protect the confidentiality of the states affected. Authorities have previously said that voter databases in Arizona and Illinois were breached by foreign-based hackers. It is also unclear whether any of the remaining state systems were successfully breached.
Manfra would not disclose what states had data "exfiltrated" from their systems when questioned by vice chair Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.).
“I prefer not to go into those details in this forum," Manfra said
.
She said that all of the "system owners" targeted within the states are aware that they were targeted and that any states that had data exfiltrated are also aware.
Officials maintain that the systems targeted were not involved in vote counting.
Later,Bill Priestap, assistant director of FBI’s counterintelligence division, said that there was no doubt Russia was behind the targeting effort. He said the FBI has ongoing investigations into the matter.
Fmr. DHS Sec. Jeh Johnson: "It was unprecedented, the scale and scope" of Russian interference in 2016 election.

BREAKING: Election hackers successfully altered voter rolls in 2016 election: report
http://hill.cm/aXUK7IS

Hackers successfully altered voter information at least once during the 2016 presidential campaign,#according to a Time magazine report#Thursday.
The hackers manipulated voter information in a county database, according the report. They also accessed sensitive information in voter records, including Social Security numbers.

Quote:
Investigators do not yet know whether the hackers were affiliated with Russia. The report comes amid multiple investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and possible ties to President Trump's campaign.

@SenSchumer WH/GOP disdain for democratic process is palpable. Remember last time a reporter tried to get answers about healthcare, he got bodyslammed.

REMEMBER US FP is composed of both internal and external interests.....

Senate Republican healthcare bill would cut Medicaid funding deeper than House bill, beginning in 2025

Flashback: Trump promises no cuts to Medicaid

Another Trump lie from yesterday.....

Trump just claimed the U.S. is the highest taxed nation in the world.

That is not remotely true.

Not even close.

UK has to rates 30 and 40%.....Sweden, Denmark both at 40 and 50% and Norway 45%

Germany at 37 to 40% depending on income....

SO the Trump statement to 6000 cheering Americans was a lie...

#Donald J. Trump
@realDonaldTrump
With all of the recently reported electronic surveillance, intercepts, unmasking and illegal leaking of information, I have no idea...
12:54 PM - 22 Jun 2017

Donald J. Trump
@realDonaldTrump
...whether there are "tapes" or recordings of my conversations with James Comey, but I did not make, and do not have, any such recordings.
12:55 PM - 22 Jun 2017

IS as Trump states "I did not make and do not have any such recordings..."

THEN WHY did he tweet this......

Donald J. Trump‏
#@realDonaldTrump

James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!


So as now the Trump supporter Gingrich states this was suppose to be a "bluff"...SOUNDS like an open threat to me...

Serious note.....based on the constant Trump tweets and his style of tweeting....THIS set of tweets did not come from Trump personally...someone else send these tweets....IMHO...written by a lawyer attempting to deflect a charge of "witness intimidation".....which carries a harsher jail penalty.....

Trump is CLEARLY not listening to his lawyers

In which the President of the United States admits to witness tampering....

Trump trying to put forth a defense "that he wanted to make sure Comey told the truth" per Anon in Bloomberg rpt.

BUT WAIT.....did not the major Trump pundit Gingrich just state Trump was just "bluffing"??????

Trump WH attempts to keep US MSM from having footage of WH responses to ongoing issues and questions that they ask about.....so is Trump and his WH attempting to stifle free press and free speech...?????

Gens. Votel,Townsend,Petreus, Abizaid, Odierno and numerous others manage to brief reporters on front lines of Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria.

BUT Trump and his WH cannot hold an on the record and recorded press conference.....???

REMEMBER in an early Spicer press conference "he stated I will not be lying to you"...and now no recording of any future press conferences????

WHAT is this Trump WH literally afraid of...???

Pressers are briefings for America. On 9-11 DOD spox briefed reporters sitting on ground outside as Pentagon burned. Rumsfeld wanted that.

Fundamental basis for press freedom enshrined in 1st Amend: Press=the people's eyes & ears so we know what our govt does.

Elderly people in wheelchairs outside McConnell office are being forcibly removed/arrested for protesting Republicans

Eric got up at 6am to board a train from Philly, watched dozens of his friends get arrested (many in wheelchairs or w/ respirators)

This is the part that repeals essential health benefits which include mental health, hospitalization, and maternity.

SO in fact has lied again to the American people....no wonder they do not want live coverage in the press briefings

The GOP bills raise deductibles, cuts coverage and slashes Medicaid. Trump promised repeatedly to voters he would do none of the above.

Any rational person who has seen the classified information, as I have, knows @POTUS is lying when he calls Russian interference a hoax.
