As i said on @ThisWeekABC to give some perspective: “Benghazi was a 4 year investigation, there were zero indictments. The Clinton emails was a 2 year investigation, there were zero indictments. The Mueller investigation has been 14 months, there have been 23 indictments.”

This is remarkable. The President of the United States allegedly hired private spies to dig up dirt on American citizens in order to discredit the work they did on behalf of the American people. https://t.co/PUs1IyoHBd

The sitting President — not a campaign — hired a firm to find dirt on the personal lives of former WH aides? Who paid for this?? I know people are cynical about Washington, but, no, this is NOT how things work. This is Nixonian, pure Watergate stuff. https://t.co/YTvi4NC1Zg

BREAKING: Giuliani implies the remaining $1.1 million Cohen mysteriously accrued—from Trump and loans—in the last 90 days of the campaign may well have gone to other Trump mistresses.

Pres. Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani says he can't be confident the president won't invoke the Fifth Amendment if he speaks with the special counsel: "I've got a client who wants to testify… I hope we get a chance to tell him the risk that he's taking." https://t.co/LLi1C5Cedc pic.twitter.com/s7GT0y74WS

There is a lot more going on, but I’m still recovering from a horrible cold and my daughter’s wedding to post anything more.
