Praying together, staying together: The axis between Russian Orthodox and American evangelicals is intact
It will be interesting to hear from Trump and his offspring about how a charitable foundation could somehow legally subsidize a presidential campaign.
It was Stephen Miller who pushed the Trump admin to use the ‘nuclear option’ of separating children from parents at the border.
What happened in the FBI New York Field Office is one of the most overlooked and crucial factors on 2016.
According to the testimony of the Attorney General in the IG report, nine days before the election she and the FBI Director discussed how a “deep and visceral hatred of Secretary Clinton” by a cadre of senior NY FBI agents “has put us where we are today” w/r/t the Weiner laptop. pic.twitter.com/Owg69kuAlG— southpaw (@nycsouthpaw) June 16, 2018
That’s by design. They want to overwhelm, scare, and strip you of hope. The idea is to muddy the waters & blur the truth while controlling the opposition. Once they’ve become established, they push opposition to do self-defeating things. Good read: https://t.co/U8JwNVmfKX— Counterchekist (@counterchekist) June 16, 2018
Trump administration officials held a conference call to defend family separation at border & demand apology for @JoeNBC calling practice Nazi-like. None was willing to be quoted by name
I am sorry that the Trump Administration has created a vicious policy where parents are told their children are being taken to showers and never return.— Joe Scarborough (@JoeNBC) June 16, 2018
Such inhumanity is un-American. You can quote me on that. https://t.co/tkRygCMRMK

Single-use straws are the scourge of the packaging-waste world because they don’t easily biodegrade and because really, they aren't necessary for most people when it comes to gulping a soft drink.
The Israeli government, and its most fervent supporters in the United States, expect Donald Trump to deliver a new New Middle East
Corn farmers have been venting their frustration about Pruitt's decision to not expand summer sales of ethanol.
If you aren't paying attention to what Russia is up to in Afghanistan, including by supporting the Taliban, you should start.
New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood filed a lawsuit against the President, his foundation, and his three oldest children for using the Trump Foundation in a "persistently fraudulent and illegal manner." Lawrence talks to David Cay Johnston who explains why he believes this is more reason for the President to release his tax returns.
A full-time worker earning minimum wage can't afford a 2-bedroom rental anywhere in the United States
Lawrence recaps today’s once in a century development : Donald Trump’s campaign chairman went to jail today, and Donald Trump, in anticipation of that, went to the White House lawn and lied- about Paul Manafort, about the Mueller investigation, and more.
Even for him, Donald Trump did a lot of lying this morning. Between Fox and Friends and the exchange with reporters, I counted 22 false claims
Former CIA Director John Brennan tells @chucktodd for the first time about the meeting where he informed Senate Majority Leader McConnell about Russia’s intervention in the 2016 election. Brennan said that McConnnell questioned the findings & saw them through a political lens.

Mr. Trump excuses his cruelty to children by lying about Democrats. This is unacceptable on every level.
An inmate database shows that Manafort was booked into the Northern Neck Regional Jail in Warsaw, Virginia, at 8:22 PM. Jail records listed his housing unit as "VIP-1."
Cambridge Analytica's key staffers formed a new company that's working on Trump 2020. Like freaking cockroaches.
Don Lemon just went off on Steve Cortes, a Donald Trump defender and got him to admit that Trump is a liar and that separating children from their fams IS NOT a Democrat law but just a practice of the Trump administration

Jenny Johnson Ware, criminal tax attorney and partner at Johnson Moore, talks with Rachel Maddow about why the criminal referral against the Trump Foundation puts more than Donald Trump and his family in legal jeopardy.
Rachel Maddow reviews some of the responses of tax law experts to the case referred by the New York attorney general against Donald Trump's charitable foundation and its members, including Trump's progeny.
Rachel Maddow reports on the first migrant children arriving at Donald Trump's tent city detention camp after they were forcibly taken away from their parents as they sought asylum in the United States.
Devlin Barret, national security reporter for The Washington Post, talks with Rachel Maddow about the current criminal case against Donald Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.
Rachel Maddow points out that while the charges Paul Manafort is being prosecuted for are not connected to the relationship between Donald Trump and Russia, his Russian intelligence-tied co-defendant and his key position between Trump and Russia suggest that he has the kind of information that would help him avoid jail if he cut a deal with Robert Mueller's team.
Rachel Maddow reads through the court transcript of Donald Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort's lawyers trying and failing to convince US District Judge Amy Berman Jackson that their client deserved to remain out of jail while waiting for his trial.
