On Saturday, Donald Trump unknowingly tweeted himself into a  corner. Following the news that former National Security Advisor Micheal Flynn, who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI and signed a deal to cooperate with Robert Meuller's investigation into Russian interference in the election, Trump took to Twitter to tell his side.

In the tweet Trump said:

I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI. He has pled guilty to those lies. It is a shame because his actions during the transition were lawful. There was nothing to hide!

Immediately, people began to question what this means for the presidency and did Trump just implicated himself in a crime. 









In light of the nations shock over the tweet, Trump's lawyer, John Dowd, is now taking the responsibility for writing the tweet. 

People are finding it incredibly difficult to believe that Dowd has access to Trump's twitter account, not to mention the White House has stated that Trump's tweets should be taken as official statements. 

Dowd said about the incriminating tweet that it was the first time and the last time he would tweet for the president. 

People are not buying it.











Trump did not respond to questions about the tweet when he returned home after a fundraising trip.
