Trump team now acknowledges Trump “dictated” son’s misleading statement about Russian lawyer meeting. But after WaPo reported last July that Trump “personally dictated” it aboard Air Force One, Trump’s team denied. https://t.co/VLrzUH4r9q

One of the traditional techniques of Russian disinformation is you tell the lie at the time that it's most necessary, and then you can cop to the truth when the lie is no longer useful. Don't know whether Trump learned this or just does it naturally. Probably the latter. https://t.co/d8Gk8dfyOV

Asked about shifting explanations for statement on Trump Tower meeting, Rudy Giuliani tells @GStephanopoulos:
"This is the reason you don't let the president testify. Our recollection keeps changing, or we're not even asked a question and somebody makes an assumption." pic.twitter.com/DLQsGbfGhA

Mueller has been ready to intvw Trump since @ December. Trump's lawyers have argued for narrowing down scope/getting answers to their own q's, which Giuliani says just happened a few weeks ago. Rudy, who have criticized Mueller for long process, now says Trump likely won't sit.

This is why I love it every time Mr. Giuliani speaks. He just acknowledged that BEFORE he joined Mr. Trump’s team on Apr. 19, Trump was aware of the repayment to Cohen and lied about it. Rudy: under the law that’s called an “admission” and it’s very damaging. Pls keep talking. https://t.co/DJYMhYb0uh

My wife said this story about Trump spending more tax dollars traveling to Mar a Lago than Mueller has spent on his investigation needs to be publicized more. Take it away, friends. https://t.co/KcMJzNyyhL

As Trump desperately tries to distance himself from Manafort, just remember that this criminal is the only reason Mike Pence was made Vice President. The two communicated constantly, even after Manafort resigned. Pence owes everything to him & is likely complicit in his crimes.

If you want further proof of what a cult many Trump supporters have formed, watch how they now defend the idea of pardoning Rod Blagojevich. It is both hilarious and horrifying to see how nothing matters but following Dear Leader to the bitter end.

The Times: "Britain would be hit with shortages of medicine, fuel and food within a fortnight if the UK tries to leave the European Union without a deal, according to a Doomsday Brexit scenario drawn up by senior civil servants for David Davis." pic.twitter.com/rHKLuw0RDi

This "doomsday scenario" would usually be labelled as part of "Project Fear" by Brexiters, except they can't because it's been prepared by officials working for lead Brexiter David Davis. #StopBrexit to #SaveBritain. https://t.co/ZIVg3Lwl7b

As one senior official said to me, history won’t be kind to the current crop of politicians. Some talk/worry about the Chilcott-style inquiry inevitably to come into Brexit handling. Here’s a good starting point / thread as to why: https://t.co/ctpmGsR2wb
