Rep. Elijah Cummings on Tricia Newbold: "She's scared. She's small in stature and she's already seen what's going on in the White House. She was scared to death. And she was afraid, sadly, of our Republican colleagues... I will protect whistleblowers. Period."

President Trump: "Congress has to meet quickly and make a deal. I can do it in 45 minutes. We need to get rid of chain migration. We need to get rid of catch and release and visa lottery. And we have to do something about asylum. And to be honest, you have to get rid of judges."

Chuck Schumer: "Republicans failed to pass any of their health care plans in Congress, so they're trying to repeal health care in court. This reeks of desperation and they have no back up plan."

A week ago, Trump wanted the entire Mueller report made public. Now he's callin' for a total cover-up. Sounds like Barr gave President O.J. a sneak peek

Trump just said "my father is German, was German. Born in a very wonderful place in Germany." Fred Trump was born in New York.

Uh...we have to get rid of Judges?

The FBI flagged Jared Kushner’s security clearance The CIA flagged Jared Kushner’s security clearance White House specialists flagged Jared Kushner’s security clearance The Chief of Staff flagged Jared Kushner’s security clearance Jared Kushner got a security clearance anyways.

What's happening in Israel right now is awfully suspicious. Netanyahu is being boosted by an online disinformation campaign and now he's flying to Moscow to meet with Putin days before the big election.

New York's attorney general is one of the most powerful in the nation. That should worry Trump. The state's chief legal officer, who's investigating Trump and his company, has the ability to render a "judgment of corporate death" for business fraud.

Democratic lawmakers are all but accusing the Trump admin of stonewalling them in their inquiries into what happened after hurricanes Irma & MarΓ­a ravaged Puerto Rico. Rep. Gerry Connolly said he still hasn't seen key docs detailing the admin's response.

"Stephen Moore isn’t just another unfortunate selection for the amateur president. He is a uniquely ridiculous choice – quite possibly the least defensible of the Trump presidency to date."

This is the best prank ever: In 1990, Spy magazine sent a check for 13 cents to a bunch of wealthy Americans. Only two people cashed the checks. One was an arms dealer. The other was Donald Trump.

Sorry, Trump fans, but here on Planet Earth, Devin Nunes is no hero

Rep. Adam Schiff on the Oversight Committee's whistleblower release: "By repeatedly overruling the adjudication decisions of career officials, it appears the White House made a regular practice of placing political considerations ahead of national security."

Elizabeth Warren: "The Trump administration is a walking, talking, living, breathing threat to national security, and we just have to call it out."

BREAKING: Just asked Attorney General Bill Barr if he would comply with any subpoena from @TheDemocrats in the Mueller report... he laughed and then said, “We’ll have to follow the law.”

Cummings tonight told us it is “a million times worse” than Clinton emails. “Because what you have here are people who literally have the top secrets of the world ... and they have not been properly cleared ... That should alarm each and every American”

.@SenateMajLdr McConnell & @SenateGOP refused to give a hearing to Merrick Garland, Pres. Obama’s Supreme Court nominee. And he wasn’t the only nominee they blocked. Now the same Republicans want to change Senate rules to speed confirmation of Pres. Trump’s nominees?

"Nunes is an unscrupulous sycophant and unhinged partisan who is willing to say or do anything to protect the president,"

Let's shine a little sunlight on this: when now-AG Bill Barr's father, Donald Barr, was headmaster at the Dalton school in NYC, he hired a two-time college dropout to teach physics and calculus to high school students. That teacher's name was Jeffrey Epstein.

President Trump provided the first clue about the GOP's’ timetable to introduce a replacement for former President Obama’s signature health care law.

The White House may have regularly put political interests over national security by granting security clearances when it shouldn’t. Nepotism or cronyism cannot outweigh concerns over foreign influence or conflicts of interest. Congress must do rigorous oversight

Khashoggi children have received houses in Saudi Arabia and monthly payments as compensation for killing of father

Just a reminder that Flores, the plagiarist, is only the tool here. We need to blame Bernie. When it comes to Joe Biden, @SenSanders, stop the attacks and show us your tax returns. Trump’s taxes. Bernie’s taxes. Let’s have them.

“Mr. President, may I place my hands on your body as I greet you?” asked @LucyFlores. “I know I must not touch you without consent”. Or, you, know, not, because that’s not how warm greetings work.

It’s not shocking the Sanders campaign fielded a plagiarist and a liar to smear @JoeBiden. Attacking Democrats is what I expect from them. The shock is so many news networks gave Flores a platform to spread propaganda about normal gestures both she and Bernie made repeatedly.
