I'm thinking now may be a good time for @AP to uncall the race for #GOP Rep Valadao in #CA21

Implicit in all this, is the notion that @realDonaldTrump, or people close to him, may have tried to meddle in the investigation by secretly promising Manafort a pardon, in exchange for Manafort lying to investigators about Trump’s involvement.

NEW TODAY: Conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi says Mueller offered him a deal to plead guilty to one count of perjury. But he told @SaraMurray he won't take the deal, saying: "They can put me in prison the rest of my life. I am not going to sign a lie."

Russia resists Western calls to free captured Ukrainian ships

While many Americans were distracted over a long holiday weekend, the Trump administration released a federally mandated report on climate change that delivers a dire warning

Trump has repeatedly cited the importance of Saudi arms sales as a reason not to cut the supply of weapons in response to the murder of Jamal Khashoggi. According to a report by the Centre for International Policy, those figures are hugely inflated.

Germany: Russian blockade of Sea of Azov is unacceptable

Navalny says Ukrainian incident is the result of Putin's popularity slipping

I agree. Putin is testing not only Kyiv, but the liberal international order. Lately, Putin's rogue behavior has not been deterred or punished, so he feels emboldened.

NATO is still vastly stronger than Russia militarily (and every way)...

GOP Shrugs Off Bombshell Climate Report

We have an outbreak of E. Coli O157:H7 which makes you vomit blood, have bloody diarrhea, and even pee blood as you lose your kidneys. It’s all because Trump overturned Obama-era rules to test our farm water. Farmers save $12 million so that we pay $108 million in medical costs.

This was so predictable you can set your watch to it.
There was an explosion of O157:H7 outbreaks under the Reagan administration and another under the second Bush administration. Both administrations repealed critical agricultural inspection rules.

Canada condemns Russian aggression towards #Ukraine in the #KerchStrait. We call on #Russia to immediately de-escalate, release the captured vessels, and allow for freedom of passage. Canada is unwavering in its support for Ukraine’s sovereignty.

Poland's Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemns 'Russian aggression' in Azov Sea

This is a lie. Not simply "incorrect" but just a lie. Why doesn't the president just own the separation policy. Man up. If separation was done to deter others (as Trump admits in second tweet) why not just go with it. Why hide, falsely, behind Obama and Bush?

Plenty of proof exists: Sputnik employee who corresponded with both Guccifer 2.0 and Assange then became a tRUmp/alt-right super fan, and Manafort’s partner running Sanders’ campaign. Then there’s Jill Stein. This doesn’t even get into all the SOCMED network maps, either... :-)
