Uh Oh! Trump's Flip Flop FISA Tweets Also Include A Confession Of Guilt

Another "Trump Tweeted What?" Day for Republicans in the White House and on the Hill. You put this guy in office, jerkwads!
Views:

Axios quotes a "source close to Republican leaders," which probably means a US Senator, amirite?
.

“I have decided that the only way to stay sane in Trump’s Washington is to ignore everything he says.“

.
But that's hardly possible when Trump tweets random and contradictory statements about votes that are going on this very morning.

REBECCA BERG: The president directly contradicted a statement that had been put out by the White House, their official position on this FISA reauthorization with that tweet, and it happened because he was watching Fox News this morning, doing a report on the FISA reauthorization, framing it as a controversy, and, of course, going back to some of these issues with the dossier, the president's fears about unmasking. He watched this report and then tweeted things directly contradicting his administration's policy on this reauthoriization. Congressional leaders' policy on this reauthorization. The president has done this before, put votes in jeopardy Republicans needed on Capitol Hill, but doesn't make it any less extraordinary that the president is off on his own without his staff to intervene.

UPDATE: The House has passed the FISA reauthorization without amendment. Because they are not paying any attention to their so-called President of the United States.

But wait, there's more!

The CNN panel notes that FISA courts issue warrants based on credible and substantiated evidence. So if Trump is suggesting that the Steele Dossier is somehow connected to a FISA Warrant, that confirms that at least some of the dossier's conclusions stood up in an actual court of law. Oops.
