Delighted to see legendary reporter Carl Bernstein in @CNN green room. Tonight’s scoop—that Michael Cohen can say that Trump knew about Russian meeting—is the work of Carl, @jimsciutto & @MarshallCohen. pic.twitter.com/HgL1LpFabr

Cohen is ready to testify he was present when Trump was told about an offer of material damaging to Clinton ahead of Trump Jr.'s Russia meeting, sources tell CNN https://t.co/zL7sPCTa2A pic.twitter.com/PNlfiHvJaO

If Cohen's account is accurate, Trump knew from the start that Putin had a secret plot to hurt HRC & help him. Yet he constantly denied Russia was behind the attack on the US election. That is, he knowingly lied to protect a foreign adversary attacking the US. That's betrayal.

Just got back on twitter and found new stories that Cohen says Trump knew about the Trump Tower meeting IN ADVANCE, Junior lied about it under oath (which means jail time), and 3 new hush payments to mistresses have come to light, one who was PREGNANT.
Guys, I was gone 3 HOURS.

We're going to need to get Michael Cohen into witness protection really quickly
— Rick Wilson (@TheRickWilson) July 27, 2018
As @DavidJollyFL points out, if Cohen really knows that Trump knew of and approved the Trump Tower meeting before it happened, an argument can be made that he lied to Congress in 2017. That’s a federal crime. https://t.co/tlNo4H7gXB

In all the excitement about Trump Tower and Cohen, don't forget that a few hours ago news broke Trump's bookkeeper for decades was subpoenaed to appear before a SDNY grand jury. The walls are truly closing in.

Barnier: "we have always said that a better solution in the future EU-UK relationship could replace the backstop. This explains the "unless and until" provision.. to which the UK has agreed. Continued uncertainty.. would be unacceptable for [all]"

The UK government has promised there will be 'adequate food supplies' after Brexit, and is counting on grocers to make sure it happens. The industry says that's 'ridiculous'. https://t.co/c91Br131Ql

Brexit is easy!
OK, maybe not… but we can stockpile.
Stockpiling is easy!
Mass stockpiling isn't easy, when you don't have the experience, space, logistics, staff, money, etc.https://t.co/PgZilfccdt

I suspect that the no deal Brexit stockpiling food & medicine story is a tactic cultivated by the Tories to make people expect the worst and then be pleased with whatever crappy Brexit deal is negotiated by Theresa May.

If Britain leaves the EU without a trade deal, we go on to WTO rules. This expert explains what that actually means – and as @mrjamesob said, "I didn't realise it would be this ugly." https://t.co/YcqCaVbdBi

It’s not the the ‘will of the people’ Brexit is about. It’s the will of England. A small, largely empty part of it, controlled by non-doms.
