Axios reports that President Donald Trump’s lawyer, John Dowd, has taken credit for the @realdonaldtrump account’s tweet claiming Mike Flynn was fired for lying to the FBI.
I still want to know how it’s even legal for Trump’s Twitter account to present questions about the source of a tweet. Is his account to be considered official communications from the White House? Or is it an outlet where authorship is determined only by political convenience depending on the content?
I remember reading 9 months ago that the @realdonaldtrump account is subject to the Presidential Records Act. How do we keep, file, and index these records if attribution is uncertain?
Trump’s lies matter in a very real way.
