The FBI has issued a subpoena to Twitter to turn over the tweeting records of Donald Trump.
The president and his attorney might have just gotten themselves in the hottest of water yet. After Donald Trump tweeted that he knew that Michael Flynn lied to the FBI and that is one of the reasons he fired Flynn, he exposed himself to an obstruction of justice charge and subsequent impeachment.
“I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI,” Donald Trump tweeted. “He has pled guilty to those lies. It is a shame because his actions during the transition were lawful. There was nothing to hide!”
To cover their tracks, Donald Trump’s personal attorney, John Dowd, came out and said he was the one responsible for the tweet, not Donald Trump.
Dowd claims that he drafted the tweet and delivered it to White House social media director Dan Scavino for him to post it.
An inside source who asked to remain anonymous because of the sensitivity of the request, informed 18 Karat Reggae that the FBI is now interested in knowing the IP address and the equipment that posted the tweet. This is very important, because if the tweet came from Donald Trump’s personal cellphone, then it would cast doubt on what the Trump camp is claiming that Donald is not responsible for the tweet. Trump has never in the past revealed that he allows anyone to operate his twitter, plus the tweet had Donald Trump’s signature all over it.
“They better hope that they are not lying,” the source said. If the IP address and the equipment that was used to create the tweet does not back up their claim, they just got themselves in a lot more trouble than they were in yesterday.”
If Trump’s attorney is lying, then it would further prove that there is something that his administration is trying to hide.
Normally when the FBI request a subpoena they get their requests, so it is possible that as this article is being written, the FBI is getting all the information they need about who really sent out the tweet on Saturday.
