Between the civil fraud and E. Jean Carroll judgments, "the immediate question is whether Trump has the liquidity" to post those bonds.

People, please stop telling me how to write my threads.

I number each toot and hashtag the first one and occasionally subsequent ones. All you have to do is click on a toot to see which thread it is.

The reporters also name the judge and lawyers in each toot, so how hard is that to figure out?

If you can’t follow my simultaneous threads, and think you can do better, try writing your own. Let me know how that works out.

“While Trump would still need to reach delegate requirements necessary to win the nom, if the resolution is approved, he’d have access to RNC’s data operation, benefit from fundraising w RNC, & have support of all of the committee’s ground ops. It would also mean the committee would be supporting Trump & effectively opposing Haley – an unprecedented break from party’s past approach to nom process”
