Im shocked that the guy who was too dumb to run a casino is addicted to juicing the economy

This is Trump right here telling you that he is interfering in US military legal cases specifically to change results to what he wants. He's also directly interfering in the military awards process without any understanding of that process.

Trump orders Navy to rescind awards given to prosecutors of SEAL Eddie Gallagher

Putin praised Trump's offer to help fight wildfires in Siberia "as a pledge of intent to restore full-fledged relations between the two countries in the future." During their conversation, Trump and Putin agreed to continue contacts — both over the phone and face-to-face.

Epstein managed to surround himself with Nobel laureates and other scientific luminaries, who were lured by his money. He told them about his fascination with eugenics -- and that he hoped to have his head and penis frozen to perpetuate his genes.

Exclusive: Jeffrey Epstein told scientists and others that he planned to seed the human race with his DNA by impregnating scores of women at his New Mexico ranch. Blockbuster

One of the more bizarre tidbits in this NYT story: that Epstein wanted his head and his penis frozen.

Wow @senatemajldr what does all this mean? Is Russian Oligarch Oleg Derispaska aware that your former staffers are lobbying for a company he supposedly doesn't run anymore?

Kentucky Dems are selling "Moscow Mitch" merchandise to capitalize on the bitter dispute involving McConnell and election security legislation. The party is launching a "Moscow Mitch" webstore that sells red t-shirts depicting McConnell in a Cossack hat.

Jeffrey Epstein Hoped to Seed Human Race With His DNA

Michael Flynn in a December 2015 email: “I had an interesting trip to Moscow (I did meet with Putin)."

The Trump administration is considering ending legal status for approximately 7,000 Syrians living in the U.S. — a move that would force them to find a new legal status, leave the U.S. or even face deportation to Syria

John Kennedy doesn't want his constituents to be able to go to the hospital and he's excusing that horrible view with what Mitch McConnell would call McCarthyism.

I’m not afraid—and for Democrats to win in 2020, you can’t be afraid either.

NEW: Two former top staffers to Mitch McConnell have lobbied Congress and Treasury on the development of a new Kentucky mill backed by Russian aluminum giant Rusal. McConnell's office won't say whether he's been lobbied by them directly.

JUST IN: It'll likely be months before Congress gets a ruling on accessing special counsel Mueller's grand jury info. The Judiciary Committee and DOJ have proposed a schedule that doesn't get to oral arguments until at least October.

Russia asks Trump to order Twitter to unblock its embassy’s account.

Chances that we'll soon hear from White House sources that Ratcliffe wasn't vetted at all before Trump tapped him for the DNI job: 100%

Donald Trump and Jeffrey Epstein partied together. Then an oceanfront Palm Beach mansion came between them. In 2004 both wanted to buy Maison de l’Amitie—the House of Friendship. Trump paid $41.35mil for it, 4 yrs later sold to Dmitry Rybolovlev for $95mi

Trump’s hidden enablers are corrupting our country - The Washington Post

WTF?? When the Russian Foreign Ministry is directly tweeting at the President of the United States complaining Twitter blocked one of their accounts, I have to question if I woke up in an episode of Twilight Zone

If Trump loses on 03 NOV 2020 I expect he will be charged with crimes, state and perhaps Federal. If he wins, he never will be. His White House successor after his 2 terms, President Ivanka M. Trump, would never allow that

How did I miss the president of the United States retweeting a QAnon account that was later suspended?

The idea that a person prone to wild conspiracy theories might soon occupy the role legally designated to be the final voice in the president’s ear on intelligence matters should terrify Americans—as well as both our allies and adversaries the world over.

BREAKING: Federal Court finds IRS violated law with rule to exempt 501(c)(4) tax-exempt nonprofits from disclosing their donors to the IRS in lawsuit by @GovernorBullock as he discusses dangers of "dark money" to democracy in the #DemDebate

The biography on Trump DNI pick John Ratcliffe's House website boasts that Ratcliffe "arrested 300 illegal aliens in a single day." NYT reports that Ratcliffe did not arrest anyone.

Let’s not be Russian to any collusions. I’m sure #MoscowMitch had a very good treason for blocking those election security bills.

The White House Blocked My Report on Climate Change and National Security Politics intruded on science and intelligence. That’s why I quit my job as an analyst for the State Department.

The Federal Reserve has sent clear signals it intends to cut interest rates, but questions linger regarding how deep the cut will be

Steve Bannon attended a far-right summit with #France’s Marine Le Pen and told the audience to "wear #racist like a badge of honor.” They don’t even hide behind hoods anymore

A NYT fact check you may have been waiting for: "According to Richard Alles, a retired deputy chief with the New York Fire Department, Mr. Trump was not a presence at ground zero."

EXCLUSIVE: The Trump admin determined that more than 500,000 kids could lose free school lunch/breakfast under the USDA's new plan to crack down on food stamps...but didn't mention that fact when the plan actually came out, @BobbyScott tells me.

Statutory rape laws don't make it illegal for 15-year-olds to have sex. They make it illegal for adults to have sex with 15-year-olds. How are you confused by this?

Opinion | A high-level Senate report confirms it: Our elections still aren’t safe

Before the #DemDebate, my daughter Abigail settles some of the great debates of our time.

The new ad from the Tom Steyer-back Need to Impeach. It's called 'What Mueller Said.' Via @playbookplus: The group is spending in the mid-six figures to air the ad on CNN and MSNBC before and after the second presidential debate.

The American people want, and deserve, the truth. I believe the House must pursue a formal impeachment inquiry.

WOW. @ewarren totally dunked on John Delaney. "I don't understand why anybody goes to all the trouble of running for president of the United States just to talk about what we really can't do and shouldn't fight for."

Trump executed a massively effective psyop on us all this week. He got the masses and MSM to talk "racism" instead of about selling nukes to Saudi Arabia and Mueller. Did you notice?

Donald Trump’s father was once arrested over deplorable conditions of Maryland apartment building

Twitter has suspended a conspiracy-peddling account amplified by Trump, The Daily Beast has confirmed

Rep. Mike Conaway of Texas will not seek reelection in 2020, according to multiple GOP sources. He's the fifth Republican to announce retirement over the past two weeks.

We need to call out white supremacy for what it is—domestic terrorism. @ewarren will call it what it is

The Trump administration has engaged in repeated abuses of power and disregarded our institutions, while flaunting Congress and the judiciary. If Congress doesn’t stand up to these abuses, then our system of checks and balances will have failed.

#MoscowMitch you ignored Dan Coats warnings of Russian interference in our elections by blocking security bills that would protect our Democracy. You are just like Benedict Arnold secretly helping the British during the Revolutionary War.

“Mitch McConnell is a man who knows less about Russian influence than Donald Trump, and I know nothing.” - Donald Trump But Trump knew exactly how to use Russia’s help. And by blocking election security bills, McConnell knows just what he’s doing: Inviting more meddling.

Rep. Cummings was targeted for a reason. The Oversight committee report is DEVESTATING: direct evidence that Trump & associates sold US foreign policy to UAE, Saudi Arabia and Russia to enrich themselves.

"Tell me why a 19-year-old kid that can't even drink can get a weapon of war from one state and bring it to another state and kill 3 people." California Governor Gavin Newsom expresses his frustration with the lack of action on gun violence.

Russian Oligarchs & Chinese Overlords

BREAKING: Trump trade aid paid the top 1% of farmers an average $188,000 while the bottom 80% averaged less than $5,000, @ewg analysis finds.

Those accompanying Trump to Poland today include Melania, Gary Cohn, Hope Hicks, Keith Schiller.

Moscow Mitch even picked the wrong damn hour to take to the senate floor for FOX.

BREAKING: California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) just signed a bill requiring President Trump to release his tax returns before he can appear on the state's 2020 primary ballot. Don't you just love States rights?

Peter Listerman is “the world’s famous seller of young models to oligarchs,” alleges former Miss Teen Ukraine Kristina Goncharova, who says she was first targeted by Listerman when she was just 14 years old.

Jeffrey Epstein accused of raping 15-year-old — one day before he was mysteriously injured in jail

MCSALLY: “I pray the accuser gets the help she needs and finds the peace she is searching for. But it cannot be by destroying General Hyten with false allegations.” The accuser is sitting in the room at the hearing:

Donald Trump cannot speak about 9/11 without lying. @Lawrence examines President Trump's new lie about 9/11 and how it proves once again the President will lie about anything.

Honestly, Trump violating the law to avoid having Sue Gordon run the IC while he installs a flunkie who lied about virtually every NatSec case he claims to have been involved in is going to make a superb impeachment count.

Mass shooting in Wisconsin. 8-year-old boy among the dead. @SenRonJohnson these are your constituents! They died while your majority sat on background checks, VAWA reauthorization, & gun violence prevention research funding in the Senate. Disgraceful

.@PeteButtigieg on @realDonaldTrump claiming he fixed the economy when it was really Obama’s doing: He’s “like the rooster in the morning, he thinks he made the sun come up.”

NEW: Responding to accusations that ⁦ @senatemajldr ⁩ is a Russian asset, #Trump accuses the ⁦ @washingtonpost ⁩ of being “a Russian asset.”

The precious preciousness of #MoscowMitch. Now, every time he speaks, remember how he whined about his hurt feefees on the Senate floor. Maybe he’s not as tough as he pretends to be.

Russia-Linked Buyout Firm Violates Deal With U.S. National Security Panel to Sell Stake

In addition to the scandalous behavior of Tom Barrack, there documents implicate President Trump, Jared Kushner, Gary Cohn, KT McFarland, and Cabinet Secretaries Rick Perry, Steven Mnuchin, Mike Pompeo, Rex Tillerson, James Mattis, and Wilbur Ross.

Mitch McConnell blocks unanimous election security bills and when he gets called out for being Putin's ally, he claims he's the victim of "modern day McCarthyism" by "a couple of left-wing pundits on the basis of bold-faced lies."

More than half of the Trump administration’s trade war aid for farmers went to just a 1/10 of the recipients in the program

It's Tom Barrack's time in the barrel, and it will get uglier

#CreepyDershowitz is trending because @AlanDersh couldn't help himself and had to restate his argument in favor of lowering the age of consent as low as 14 on Twitter while he is currently implicated in underage sexual assault charges with Jeffrey Epstein.

One week *to the day* after Equifax announced its settlement terms. It’s clear corporations won’t clean up their acts on their own. We need to create an enforceable federal data privacy standard, so I’m drafting that bill.

This is a national security disaster under any president. Much more so under a president who was backed by the Russians in the first place. Fox News Analyst Warns Trump Is 'Locking Down The Intelligence Community for His Purposes'

What will Moscow Mitch do? Protect the nation or - for some reason - not?

The killings came two days after the Trump administration announced it was reinstating the federal death penalty after an absence of nearly two decades.

Sad, horrible news for lovers of freedom & democracy. Prominent Putin & Kremlin critic Vladimir Kara-Murza dies suddenly of illness in Moscow. Kara-Murza was a familiar face on Western news channels & was a pallbearer at John McCain’s funeral.

President Trump recently described Baltimore as “disgusting” and “rodent infested,” but his son-in-law Jared Kushner owns thousands of apartments in the city that have collected hundreds of building code violations. @randikayeCNN reports.

Comrade Lindsey Graham is next #MoscowMitchMcTreason

McConnellism: Placing party over country, even if it means jeopardizing the integrity of American elections -- while lining the pockets of the wealthy and corporations and enabling a lawless president.

#MoscowMitch threatened those who tried to warn Americans against Russia’s interference in American democracy. #MoscowMitch keeps blocking legislation to stop what Trump’s intel chiefs call Russia’s subverting of American democracy. #MoscowMitch is harming Kentucky and America.

Friendly reminder that Jared Kushner’s family business recently took out $800 million in federally-backed loans to buy apartments in Maryland, even as Jared Kushner serves as a senior White House official.

Trump’s Racism Infests the Republican Party

Dan Coats was a casualty of Trump’s war on the truth, @MaxBoot writes.

Today, Gilroy police said they engaged the shooter within one minute. In that time, he shot 16 people, killing a 6-year-old boy and a 13-year-old girl. That's the power of automatic weapons. There is NO scenario where a troubled 19-yr-old should be able to buy a weapon of war.

Trump pardoned Ted Suhl today — a former operator of a behavioral health company in Arkansas who was convicted on medical bribery and fraud-related charges in July 2016, stealing millions from Medicaid.

New from me: The manifesto mentioned in the Gilroy shooter-connected Instagram account is a staple in an ecosystem of free white extremist literature on 4chan, 8chan and Stormfront. They're uploaded as PDFs, posted together, and used to radicalize

#MoscowMitch McConnell is the seediest, sleaziest political sleazebag in America. He refused to sound the alarm about Russia. He won't lift a finger to protect our next election. He's taking payoffs from oligarchs. And now he's whining like an actual Trump.

Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, said the committee has obtained “direct evidence” that the president’s daughter, Kushner and other top aides were using personal accounts for official business in violation of federal law and White House policy.

Shane is correct about the law, but there's every reason to believe Trump has already violated it by nominating Ratcliffe. 50 U.S. Code § 3023:" Any individual nominated for appointment as Director of National Intelligence shall have extensive national security expertise."

The system is broken. Mitch McConnell broke it. He's bought off by special interests and he doesn't represent everyday Kentuckians

Because he is a master of threatening to sue everyone, and making their lives a living hell — including the media. Nobody has written about this for a reason.

While Politico reports about Saudi influence over Trump, it’s worth recalling Flynn and Kushner also meddled in a U.N. vote critical of Israeli settlements before Trump took office. Kushner is close to both MBS and Netanyahu.

NEW: Explosive new emails detail work Cambridge Analytica did for LeaveEU/UKIP. Brittany Kaiser, woman at centre of Netflix's #TheGreatHack has handed over a whole bunch of new emails to DCMS committee. Oh dear, Arron Banks. Looks like it's all coming home to roost...

Kentucky and all of America wants to know. Why do you keep doing Putin’s bidding, #MoscowMitch? Why?

The poorest states in the country with the highest rates of illiteracy, the lowest education levels, the highest rates of preventable diseases are all run by Republicans. They depend on federal dollars from more successful states like Ca. & NY.

We have just published new evidence from Brittany Kaiser relating to Cambridge Analytica, UKIP and Leave EU - you can read them all here

Today, I met with a 12-year-old who was shot while in a bounce house. A grandmother mourning the loss of her 6-year-old grandson. This is America today -- the shootings continue. Loved ones are buried. Children are gunned down. And Congress does nothing.

In Kentucky, Republican state senator breaks with GOP/Bevin and endorses Democrat Andy Beshear for governor. Potentially the start of something big--Laura Kelly beat Kobach in Kansas last year with the aid of GOP electeds there backing her.

Another Putin critic meets an untimely death under suspicious circumstances. This is a huge loss for pro-democracy efforts. Kara-Murza was an inspiration to many around the world. Has Trump commented on this yet, or is he still busy attacking Baltimore?
