Bwa ha ha! Senator Chris Coons takes a moment to read the US Code on Twitter so Trump's lawyers, and especially Rudy Giuliani, can know which laws were allegedly broken by their client.
August 2, 2018

Delaware Senator Chris Coons is not the kinda guy I would pin as a trending Twitter hottie, but yesterday he took the internet by storm by calmly reading the US Code regarding "conspiracy against the United States of America."

"I’ve been hearing @realDonaldTrump and @RudyGiuliani claiming that ‘collusion is not a crime.’ Well, I took the liberty of reading the U.S. code myself. Here’s what the law actually says." the Senator tweeted.

As of this writing the video on Twitter has been viewed over half a million times.
