Palestinian prime minister, government resign

I oppose William Barr's nomination because the American people need an Attorney General who hasn't auditioned for the job by signaling loyalty to Donald Trump. We can't trust this nominee to keep the Mueller investigation safe and its results transparent.

“It’s cheaper to open an internet troll farm than to build tanks and invest in sustainable economic growth. And if the Russians can cause so much damage with so little, others who see the United States as an enemy are sure to follow suit.”

Winter storms don't prove that global warming isn't happening.

We heard the Director of National Intelligence Dan Coates talk a lot about many threats, such as Russia and China and North Korea and Iran. Guess what we didn't hear about: our Southern border. There is no national emergency at our borders

Your NDAs mean nothing. A Court order can nullify them which they regularly do. Further, you can’t use them as cover for criminal activity. You’re going to prison, traitor.

Why would a “gofer” need to sign a non-disclosure agreement? Also, because people who work in the White House are supposed to be public servants, any non-disclosure agreements they sign are meaningless.

Americans’ low opinion of their inept and mendacious president, in numbers

Children are STILL being separated from their families because of @realDonaldTrump’s cruel, racist, and heartless policies. Keep fighting, take action, and DEMAND that the government stops this policy once and for all.

Sen. Chuck Schumer: "The CBO today released a report about the lasting damage the Trump shutdown has done to the American economy."

Your cabal of unprincipled, unethical, dishonest, and sycophantic cronies is being methodically brought to justice. We all know where this trail leads. If your utter incompetence is not enough to run you out of office, your increasingly obvious political corruption surely will
