There's an election tomorrow that could reverse Brian Kemp's voter suppression in Georgia

As FTC lawyers investigated a Miami company accused of fraud, "they were stunned to learn about a new job for a figure in their inquiry. 'You’re not going to believe this...Matt Whitaker is now chief of staff to the Attorney General. Of the United States.'

"My son was murdered by this officer...That ain't training. That's cowardice." The father of a 21-year-old man mistakenly killed by a police officer in an Alabama mall says an independent autopsy shows his son was shot three times in the back.

This is witness tampering under 18 USC 1512(b), which makes it illegal to “cause or induce any person to withhold testimony.” We explain:

Typically, there would be a wide variety of witnesses for absentee ballots. The ballots obtained by Popular Info in NC-9 show that a small group of people served as witnesses for these Bladen County ballots. Some signed more than 40 absentee envelopes.

It’s happening in plain sight, folks.

This is serious. The President of the United States should not be using his platform to influence potential witnesses in a federal investigation involving his campaign.

Oh, hey, #Individual1, are you *trying* to look guilty af? Becuse you look guilty af.

Shockwaves are still being felt from Rachel Maddow connecting the Russia Scandal dots.

The Supreme Court is set to hear Gamble v. US, which will determine the future of Double Jeopardy for state and federal prosecutions, which in turn effects Paul Manafort. It's also a huge reason the GOP was pushing to get Kavanaugh on the Court asap.

President Trump caught saying "get me out of here" as he wandered off stage at G-20 Summit

House Intel member Mike Quigley says he believes that Roger Stone lied to Congress. "I saw his interview earlier and I’ve seen the number of those. I was one of those who questioned Mr. Stone before Congress."

The Labor Secretary Went Easy on a Pedophile; He Must Be Fired, Right Now

Behold Mohammed Bin Salman, the Saudi Crown Pariah

Johnson who alleges she was raped at age 13 by @realDonaldTrump and Jeffrey #Epstein, was threatened numerous times by both men and feared for her life and those of her family members. This is a letter dated May 24, 2016 pleading w NYDA Cyrus Vance, Jr to open an investigation

A hunter killed a legendary Yellowstone wolf. Years later, her daughter died the same way.

American spies won’t let a Russian-installed wannabe tyrant help a real tyrant subvert the founding ideals this country stands for. End of story. You’d think Donnie would understand this by now, given his & his family’s present legal predicament(s)...

Terrific article by Erin Lank on Yuri Vanetik, perhaps the single most underreported figure in #TrumpRussia. See also threads by @MsMariaT, who specializes in tracking Vanitek. Yuri will nail @GOP to the wall on Russian money. Hi, @stevenmnuchin1

The Billionaire Pedophile Who Could Bring Down Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton

Only 13% of the world’s population enjoys a free press

As Democratic candidates prepare to take three statewide offices — governor, attorney general and secretary of state — Republican lawmakers introduced bills to challenge and diminish their authority.

Blood Pressure Break

“In more than 400 WhatsApp messages sent to a fellow Saudi exile in the year before he was killed, Khashoggi describes MBS as a "beast," a "pac-man" who would devour all in his path, even his supporters.”

Only a few weeks left before Open Enrollment ends to shop for a 2019 Marketplace plan. Don’t miss out. The Dec 15 deadline will be here before you know it!

This is a "break glass" emergency with lives at stake. No one knows it's time to enroll (by Dec. 15) because Trump slashed advertising and promotion. It's up to citizens to spread the word.

TheBlaze (Glenn Beck) and CRTV (Mark Levin) are merging

The threat of a partial government shutdown looms with just five days to go before funding expires for several government agencies and no agreement yet between Democrats and Republicans over how to resolve a standoff over Trump's border wall demand

“This was not a ‘he said, she said’ situation. This was 50-something ‘shes’ and one ‘he’ — and the ‘shes’ all basically told the same story,’’ said retired Palm Beach Police Chief Michael Reiter, who supervised the police probe.

Proud to announce that @WCKitchen team has been in place the last few days already feeding 3k refugees a day in Tijuana. Feeding families, mothers and children’s in need of a plate of food. Is the human thing to do. Partnering with local churches next!

Trump’s Mar-a-Lago New Year's Eve party tickets are almost twice as much as what they were two years ago. It’s almost as if it’s profiting off of Trump’s presidency..

Palm Beach multimillionaire Jeffrey Epstein is a free man, despite the rapes of dozens of children according to police & prosecutors. A current Trump Cabinet member gave a serial child sex abuser the deal of a lifetime. Alexander Acosta is currently Secretary of Labor.

Trump lays off McConnell as criminal justice reform stalls

If a long-shot former member of Congress from Illinois could reach the presidency in 1860, can a suddenly not so long-shot three term Congressman from Texas capture the White House in 2020?

Trump Pentagon chief slams ‘slow learner’ Putin over election meddling

Worth reiterating that what people poo-poo as “process crimes” are actually the backbone of the rule of law. Lying to the FBI results in delays, lost leads/witnesses, and wasted resources. Telling the truth reinforces the integrity and efficiency of the investigative process.

Two million federal workers receive memo warning they can’t use the word ‘resist’ or discuss Trump impeachment at work.

The answer I’m afraid is not one my liberal friends will like. Bill Clinton also went to Epstein’s island. As a result, both political sides just wanted the story to go away.

BREAKING: Susan Collins’ PAC donated the maximum amount to far-right racist Cindy Hyde-Smith’s Senate campaign.

Police: Charge Benjamin and Sara Netanyahu with bribery in telecom case - this is the third case in which the police have recommended charging the prime minister with bribery - the Attorney General will decide on all 3 cases together

As scandal after scandal emerges, Trump is increasingly seen by the rest of the world as a lame duck they just need to wait out until his presidency ends, by scandal or the ballot box. That’s disastrous for US foreign policy interests, which are already bending to Trump’s wallet.

"I don't think anyone has been told the truth about what Jeffrey Epstein did," said Michelle Licata, now 30. "He ruined my life and a lot of girls' lives. People need to know what he did and why he wasn't prosecuted so it never happens again."


Former Miami-Dade police sergeant Mike Fisten [also a homicide investigator & FBI Organized Crime Task Force member] said the FBI had enough evidence to put child-rapist Jeffrey Epstein away for a long time but was overruled by now-Trump Labor Secretary Alex Acosta


Let’s correct the record He raped and sexually assaulted girls under the age of 18. Some as young as 12. Many from overseas. He had suppliers. He had demand. His payment, aside from his own sick gratification, was having blackmail on politicians and powerful business execs.

Gina Haspel was apparently furious that the WSJ got a look at the CIA assessment that showed that MBS was repeatedly in touch with an aide who was overseeing the Khashoggi killing at the time

Who's Roosh V? He's one of the most public online misogynists coaching men on how to have sex with women, sometimes regardless of their consent. His rhetoric is increasingly antisemitic & racist—so why is Twitter letting him use its platform to spread it?

This must be exposed ---> Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr. were in danger of facing felony fraud charges. The Manhattan DA told his prosecutors to drop the case after meeting with one of his donors, who happened to be a Trump lawyer.

Tell me more about these organically driven protests in France over “fuel taxes”. Wrong. This protest has been hijacked because that is what the Kremlin does — open up the cleaves. It just happens to be that the Kremlin also has an ideological ally with the Nazis (Dugin et al)

Factbox: Contrasting Chinese, U.S. statements on trade war agreement

Bibi boop from @counterchekist, 364 days ago

Rep. Ryan Costello (R.-PA): “It’s clear to me why we lost 40 seats; it was a referendum on the president, but that’s an extremely difficult proclamation for people to make because if they were to say that they’d get the wrath of the president.”

Warning sign on Acting AG Whitaker Mueller “wanted to put all this on the record…and that raises a concern for me. Why does Bob Mueller feel it necessary to do that? Is it that he fears that Mr Whitaker will shut him down, or prevent him from telling the country what happened?”

Trump colluded with a foreign power to win an election and is trying to distract you from it by turning the border patrol into a military force against poor people leaving countries ravaged by decades of US foreign policy.

Former DOJ Employee (Jul2016-Aug2018) George Higginbotham Pleads Guilty to Conspiracy to Deceive US Banks about Millions of Dollars in Foreign Lobbying Funds - helped move millions related to lobbying for 1MDB (Elliot Broidy also pitched proposal to 1MDB)

“Trump is a rock hanging around Russia's neck."

A poll this month by the Levada Centre showed 61% of Russians hold Putin personally responsible for the country’s problems. “No money, no jobs, no hope. It is a very dangerous situation for the authorities to have 3,000 angry people out on the streets.”

So to get this straight, @SenSanders ADMITS on TV that he knew Russia was "causing divisiveness in the Democratic Party" with Wikileaks (his words) and then AFTER THAT, he goes on Russia Today? Regularly? And people still think Bernie didn't collude?

Brave move by Saudi activist @oamaz7: he has released his WhatsApp messages w/ Jamal Khashoggi, where the two discussed their opposition to MBS.

JUST IN: U.S. and China presidents instructed economic teams to work towards removing all tariffs - China's foreign ministry

Alan Dershowitz told me he's still advising Jeffrey Epstein and that he “had a therapeutic massage with an old old Russian” at Epstein’s house but from nobody underaged.

At the same time candidate Trump publicly urged sanctions relief for Russia, he was privately putting together a business deal in Moscow that required lifting US sanctions. Then President Trump and his confederates misled the country about it, in a way that left him compromised.
