Joe Kennedy Democratic Response

The State of Resistance is Strong

Devin Nunes Won’t Say if He Worked With White House on Anti-FBI Memo

Bottom line: There are no more benign explanations for Trump, Assange, or Fox News. They coordinate on behalf of Russian interests.

Schumer presses Trump on report that Russian under sanctions entered U.S

We’re introducing the #ANTIQUITIESActOf2018 today to protect our #MonumentsForAll from the Trump administration’s unprecedented and illegal attacks on our #PublicLands.

US EP-3 🇺🇸 flying in international airspace over #BlackSea was intercepted by Russian Su-27 yesterday. Interaction determined unsafe as Su-27 came within feet & crossed EP-3’s flight path, causing EP-3 to fly thru Su-27's jet wash. See for yourself:

Um.... NBC

DEMS POUNDING @realDonaldTrump for not implementing Russia sanctions... here @SenatorShaheen holds up sanction list and says this admin is ignoring a threat to the US.

This is the language of the dictatorship you had planned, Paul. But I'm afraid you've got it backwards. *You* will answer for your crimes.

Farenthold Backpedals on Pledge to Repay Harassment Settlement Funds

Today, Congressman Paul Gosar contacted the U.S. Capitol Police, as well as Attorney General Jeff Sessions, asking they consider checking identification of all attending the State of the Union address and arresting any illegal aliens in attendance.

"Trump is even talking to friends about the possibility of asking Attorney General Jeff Sessions to consider prosecuting Mueller and his team."

Trump administration is proposing to develop three new nuclear weapons, including systems designed intentionally to be more "usable." Yesterday 16 senators sent this letter to the president, detailing the reasons why this new nuclear policy undermines US security.

Congress gave @realDonaldTrump the tools to hold Russia accountable. He chose to reject implementing sanctions – showing brazen disregard for an action with overwhelming bipartisan support

One year after our nation’s intelligence agencies unanimously concluded that Russia attacked our democracy, House Republicans are going after the FBI and Department of Justice instead.

Ryan defends release of memo on alleged surveillance abuses, but warns against tying it to Mueller probe

There are more than 5 million Syrian refugees. The Trump administration has admitted 2 of them.

Pompeo: 'I have every expectation' Russia will meddle in 2018 midterms

"Fox News needs to explain why they are airing Kremlin Active Measures aimed at the American public and calling it 'news'."

FBI has a *second* dossier (by Cody Shearer) that independently corroborates some findings in the #SteeleDossier, including sex-related kompromat on Trump from his trip to #Russia🇷🇺in 2013

Second Trump-Russia dossier being assessed by FBI

Congress voted 517-5 to impose sanctions on Russia. The President decides to ignore that law. Folks that is a constitutional crisis. There should be outrage in every corner of this country.

The W.H.'s nominee to be ambassador to Chile, Andrew Gellert, has "deep financial ties to the family of Jared Kushner," Bloomberg reports. A close friend of Jared's father, one of Gellert's most prominent ties is his shared interests in 666 Fifth Avenue.

Melania Trump's travel for three months cost twice what Michelle Obama's cost per year: report

Calls across internet to Boycott State of the Union, deny Trump ratings

Trump was furious over Justice Dept guidance against releasing classified Nunes memo: report

Wait...WHAT? That was my reaction today on the Intel Committee when I learned the Chairman HAS NOT read the materials in his FBI-brainwashing memo that’s headed to the public.


Trump won't implement new sanctions against Russia despite pressure from Congress

@realDonaldTrump Trump has done everything in his power--including working with these enablers on Capitol Hill--to make sure that this investigation of him, his family, his aides, his campaign, his transition does not come to fruition, and this was part and parcel of it tonight

“Trump, Putin and the mob. Part 6: Trump, Felix Sater and their ties to mafia Don Semion Mogilevich”

Putin is laughing right now. I mean, think about it: He screws with our election, he knows we won't come together to go after Russia, and he's got Trump & the Republicans going after our own intelligence agencies instead. Putin must just love this.

'MONDAY NIGHT SLAUGHTER': Legendary investigative journalist Carl Bernstein calls Trump-GOP attacks on the FBI and DOJ a 'turning point'

Trump zeroes in on Justice Department brass in Russia probe | Analysis by CNN's Stephen Collinson

FISA warrants typically are big thick documents, 50-60 pages. If the Nunes memo about one is just 4 pages, you can bet it’s a carefully picked bowl of cherries. Made all the more dishonest by holding back the minority rebuttal memo. A real debate needs both. Someone fears that.

“Trump is many things, but on this point he is no hypocrite. He has said exactly what he thinks law enforcement should be: his political plaything, his tool for... ‘rewarding friends and punishing enemies.’”

.@TheRickWilson destroys GOP as 'steaming sh*theap' of 'loon-centric' leaders chairing the 'Crackpot Party of Infowars'

Led by @DevinNunes, the @HouseGOP has now crossed the line into the realm of cover up.

Incredible. Trump defies Congress to protect Putin, who attacked the US election to help Trump. Those are plain facts. Is is possible to believe he isn't compromised?

Protect Mueller

The same President who excoriated Clinton after FBI found her handling of classified info extremely careless, now urges release of classified info that DOJ has called “extraordinarily reckless.” He’s consistent — consistently self-serving.

If you wanted the full Gorka quote, here it is

It seems very few people paid attention to this story. They should. Just sayin’.

Putin is celebrating BIG time. Not only did the WH refuse, again, to implement Russia sanctions overwhelmingly put forward by Congress, House Republicans just voted to release a total bullshit memo to obstruct the Trump-Russia Investigation & risk work of our intel community.

"Natalia Veselnitskaya, who organized the notorious Trump Tower meeting, has been named in an explosive Swiss court case about bribery, corruption, and double-agents."

It’s been 8 years since the Supreme Court opened the floodgates for unlimited corporate money to pour into our politics and corrupt our democracy.

THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE. @realDonaldTrump is thwarting the bipartisan will of Congress. Also, what does Putin have over Trump?

If you’re Putin, today was a good day: @realDonaldTrump delays your sanctions (again) and @HouseGop (with help from your bots) get their brainwashing #TrumpRussiaConspiracy memo to the public.

Trump administration holds off on new Russia sanctions, despite law

.@HouseGOP must also vote to release the memo prepared by @AdamSchiffCA & let everyone judge both on the merits. Let both memos go forward. It would be absolute hypocrisy for House Republicans to release their memo and not allow Rep. Schiff to release his.

If the Nunes memo is released, Congressman Schiff and other members of Congress should read the Schiff report and all other underlying documents on the House floor—just like Senator Gravel read the Pentagon Papers into the record in 1971. It's their constitutional right—and duty.

Think about what the Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee just did today: They told the entire country that the FBI is our enemy. Not Russia. But our very own FBI. That's irresponsible. And disgusting. — Joe Walsh

Don’t be too distracted by the Nunes memo scheme, the most important news of the night is Trump’s refusal to implement new sanctions on Moscow needed to deter its ongoing influence operations.

"Monday Night Slaughter": Carl Bernstein bashes GOP enablers for putting Trump over country

Every time the President says, "No collusion..." think of this day. *Every* American intelligence agency reports that Russia interfered in our election, and *continues* to interfere today via influence operations online, and intel operations on a massive scale.
