Abundant tweets about civil liberties & national security. "Has a longer memory than an elephant & keeps more records than Jim Comey.” Legendary potty mouth.

In fact there's a parallel here. I argued in 2016 that Citizens United had actually fucked the GOP (and the US) bc it meant there was so much money sloshing around candidates stayed in too long prevented a timely Trump not-Trump face-off.

You forget Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush?

Putting men on the moon at the peak of the awful war in Vietnam, right as we created Medicare & Medicaid & the Great Society programs is one hell of a flex. And the fed budget in FY '69 had a *surplus*. Amazing what we could do when we fairly taxed filthy rich ppl.

Note: Hicks testified 2X to Mueller: In 12/2017 and 3/2018. But in April 2018, the hush payments became an issue.

The Lit Prof who can't find this stuff on my website is complaining about bad undergrad habits? I'll let your Dean know.

You may consult my website where I've already done that. Or the court record, if you can manage what Aaron can't.

I mean, I could spend all my time pointing out how stupid Aaron is. But that gets tedious. Eventually you have to trust Lit Profs to be smart enough to realize he's just parroting Stone's lies.

Actually I have written about this repeatedly. I trust a lit prof can google? Again, you've been regurgitating something Aaron sucked up from Stone's lawyer that they've now admitted in court they're not pursuing, which he has not now corrected.

You mean a lit professor is incapable of doing that himself? Stone's lawyers didn't issue the subpoena they would have had they believed the hoax you swallowed from Aaron. The same way in another case they demanded the court recognize RU hacked DNC.

Interesting contrast to ADL's reaction to Omar's benjamins tweet, which it: 1) condemned as anti-Semitic, 2) requested an apology for, 3) called on the House leadership to "take action" regarding.

No. Aaron was. You ... didn't realize that?

Sorry. I'm working on a piece on how hilarious Aaron's regurgitation of Concord's stuff, absent the legal understanding, is. It is rather embarrassing for all who played along.

Oh... I guess he didn't issue a correction. Ah well. You'll reup for that tripe anyway.

I'm glad you're recommending Aaron's error ridden piece. It's like wearing a badge: "I'm so stupid I'm willing to RT useful idiots." Do you know even Stone's lawyers have admitted that was a hoax?

Again, I hope you grow to realize what a chump you've been.

I guess getting dad to disavow the racism and incitement didn't work so why not try puppies.

Nevermind. You obviously are spending your time inviting autocrats to overturn democracy. Congratulations for calling that "dissidence." You should be sick with yourself.

Again there are 30 sources cited in Mueller/GRU indictment. Some of that is easily traceable to people who have know how to read the data (including BTC). What I've seen in real time (summer 2016) is none of your business. Try engaging with the actual evidence, first?
