Here are a few of the initial ones: Kurt Eichenwald ‏@kurteichenwald 4h4 hours ago

3. Deutsche Bank concluded Trump net worth at $788 million when he was publicly claiming (and told bank) he was worth multiple billions.

I'll keep watching and drop a note when he kicks back in again. Of the first sixty, there were a number of items that I had missed in earlier reporting.

Editing: as I typed this he started tweeting again. Pt 66 and Pt 67 - Issues of steal (not from the US) and cement (crime family suppliers) in building projects.

Maybe Eichenwald will get singled out by name in one of his speeches this evening.

Eichenwald is now up to 80 items and tweeting them on rapid fire.

He once sued a friend because the friend didn't give him enough praise.

What a line up of targets for suits he must be preparing between rallies.

Oh what a game could be created around trump. Somehow reading these (bet he gets another burst going soon) is much easier to take than watching the nerve wracking tv coverage of the election.

One of my favorites so far:

Kurt Eichenwald ‏@kurteichenwald 26s26 seconds ago

101. Trump’s companies destroyed or hid 1000s of emails and documents demanded in official proceedings in defiance of court orders.

Trump has a habit of accusing Hillary of things he is guilty of. I suspect his demand for pre-debate drug tests is because he had snorted some kinda speed during debate 2 and 3 (snort snort)

"Crooked Hillary" is really Trump's confession that he is crooked. Big time.

National Security failures.

I hope he keeps pounding the drumpfenfuhrer like a kettle drum, until dRumpf passes out from lack of ability to respond.

Kurt Eichenwald ‏@kurteichenwald 8m8 minutes ago
129. NATO allies have begun assembling intel files, including from Russian informants, about Trump out of fear he is compromised.

Kurt Eichenwald ‏@kurteichenwald 10m10 minutes ago
128. By Oct., “buyer’s remorse” set in at Kremlin, which saw Trump as 2 unpredictable/unbalanced; feared could not anticipate his actions.

Kurt Eichenwald ‏@kurteichenwald 11m11 minutes ago
126. Kremlin has file of compromising information on Trump, with surveillance videos taken while he was in Moscow, including in his hotel.

There's more, much more, about the Russian connection. This man CANNOT get near nuclear codes. He shouldn't be able to get within 100 miles of the White House.
