TWEETS OF NOTE

  • (@charliekirk11) If a Republican DOJ and FBI leaked info to the press and used those same press stories to justify getting FISA warrants to spy on Obama or Hillary campaign, people would be in prison by now and the media would be declaring it worse than Watergate. Tweet.
  • (@amyblondell) This is part of the reason for the rallies. Bypass MSM and go directly to the people. It’s the only way! My parents are 85, they don’t do social media and only watch FOX, they depend on me to keep them informed because so much info never gets to them. Tweet.
