Trump figured out sometime during his fundraising jaunt to NYC that enough lawyers weighed in on his Saturday midday tweet which admitted his obstruction of justice.
The time sequence as Trump now reports it CONFESSES that he KNEW Flynn had committed a major federal felony BEFORE firing Comey for refusing to let that criminal (Flynn) escape justice. ThatÃ¢ÂÂs a confession of deliberate, corrupt obstruction of justice by @POTUS. QED! https://t.co/tSnnDho81q

Unfortunately, tweets from POTUS* can’t be deleted, so Trump gets to blame his lawyer John Dowd, for authoring the tweet, rather than Dan Scavino or Hope Hicks (who’s still alive).
Trump lawyer John Dowd drafted today’s much analyzed tweet, two people familiar tell the Post. https://t.co/azuj3H9sHR

I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI. He has pled guilty to those lies. It is a shame because his actions during the transition were lawful. There was nothing to hide!
