'So it is now OK for political campaigns to work with material stolen by foreign adversaries?' A baffling question. The stolen material--DNC, Podesta hacks--was all over media. Reporters were working with it. It was there. This is ex post facto moralizing. http://ow.ly/FBJ750r7erZ

Standard impeachment defense is to portray impeachers as partisan. Impeachers deny, declare devotion to rule of law, etc. Interesting to see play out in context of campaigning. 4/4 End.

Clinton was impeached in 1998-1999 after winning re-election in 1996. Nixon resigned ahead of impeachment in 1974 after winning re-election in 1972. How politicized would impeachment in midst of re-election campaign be? 3/4

It will take a while for House Dems to rev up impeachment machine. By the time it is going full steam, we will be right in middle of presidential campaign. That is totally uncharted territory. Never happened before... 2/4

Pretty clear Democrats have overwhelming impulse to impeach Trump. Some have tried to keep in check, but might be impossible after Mueller release. One under-discussed aspect is the timing: 1/4

To give due credit: Listen to NYT reporter @ScottShaneNYT on dossier in January 2018. His (well-founded) skepticism was not shared by colleagues on stage. http://ow.ly/Gzrs50qZi6S

I recently traveled to an undisclosed location where I had a great talk with @marklevinshow about the Mueller report and more. Tonight at 7 on Fox.

Brian Lamb deserves a big thanks from all Americans. C-Span was, and is, an incredibly important creation.

But what about those who say dossier was broadly accurate? That Steele got the big picture right? Russia really was trying to meddle in 2016 election! Proves Steele was good at reading the newspaper. From @WSJ: http://ow.ly/PGnY50qZ9fA

On MSNBC, Nicolle Wallace & Co. stood tall in defense of the Steele dossier. 'None of it has been disproven...Whole, big parts of it are holding up.'

Some others in the press insisted the dossier must be worthwhile because it had not been proved untrue. Turned normal standard of proof on its head to keep dossier hope alive.

Quoted @ScottShaneNYT

Most interesting question about the bogus claims in the Steele dossier, post-Mueller: were they fed to his sources by Russian intelligence? My story with @adamgoldmanNYT and @AllMattNYT https://nyti.ms/2UpBM2w 

And now, look: It's not just the president calling the dossier bogus.

CNN pushed back hard against Trump calling dossier 'bogus,' saying 'To simply call it bogus as the president did again today is to call the work of so many intelligence, counterintelligence, and other career public servants bogus.'

When Trump called dossier 'bogus,' some news organizations defended Steele's work, saying US investigators had corroborated parts of it. Meetings, conversations, dates, places had been confirmed. From CNN: http://ow.ly/M5J150qYWkq

Yet Mueller doesn't mention it even though it was the foundation for the FBI investigation.

It's actually mentioned several times in Mueller report. Search for 'Steele.'

You are not going to believe this, but the New York Times says the Steele dossier is not true.

Lotta stuff in the report. From @SecretsBedard: Kushner cleared of seeking Russian money to pay real estate debt.

The Kate Smith statue near the Wells Fargo Center is covered, amid reports the @NHLFlyers have cut ties with Smith over racist song lyrics.

We thought Michael Flynn's transition phone calls with Russian ambassador were start of FBI probe of him. Now, Mueller report reveals FBI had already 'opened an investigation of Flynn based on his relationship with the Russian government.' Why? Unclear.
