Today’s mass execution of 37 people in Saudi Arabia is a chilling demonstration of the authorities' disregard for human life. It is yet another gruesome indication of how the death penalty is being used as a political tool to crush dissent.

REMINDER: A citizenship question on the Census could disenfranchise Americans & cost states like NC billions in federal $--which is exactly what the Trump admin intends. The Supreme Court must reject this political power grab. My 2018 op-ed on this issue

Sen. Elizabeth Warren: "If any other human being in this country had done what's documented in the Mueller report, they would be arrested and put in jail."

Why local journalism is important: Kentucky governor put taxpayer $$ into an aluminum plant owned by one of his backers. Then the 2 KY senators, McConnell+Paul, were 2 of 3 votes needed to overturn sanctions on Deripaska, whose Rusal then invested $200mil in the plant.

NEW: Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey to hold closed-door meeting with President Trump

Meghan McCain’s father-in-law and five other Trump appointees facing investigations over ethics violations

Big day at SCOTUS: The Trump admin. made its case for a citizenship question on the 2020 census. The challengers argue it would lead to a drop in responses and census accuracy. The justices' Qs today suggested a 5-4 win for the govt (but you never know)

I asked Hogan Gidley if President Trump will accept Russian help in the 2020 election. He said “I don’t understand the question” and pointed out that the president has “already denounced multiple times Russian involvement” in the 2016 cycle.

Just imagine if we had a President who did not live in constant fear of being exposed as a fraud, who did not have to obstruct justice to survive politically, and who had the intelligence, integrity, and leadership skills to address America’s many important challenges....

BREAKING: Cummings plans to schedule a contempt vote for Carl Kline for defying subpoena to testify on security clearances

"Trump’s complaint goes on to assert that Congress has no power to investigate him for anything he declares to be his conduct as a private citizen. This sounds like what you might hear from a random drunk in a bar."

Given Barr’s highly questionable handling of the Mueller report rollout, he should recuse himself from all investigations involving Trump for the good of the Department. @NatashaBertrand on the latest investigation into a contribution to Trump Victory

New: Bill Barr has received a waiver to participate in the probe of 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB). The waiver could give him a window into an investigation in New York that involves the Trump Victory committee & potentially illegal foreign donations.

Trump has tweeted or retweeted more than 50 times in the last 24 hours.

EXCLUSIVE: Nevada National Guard joins California and New Mexico to defy Trump's trans troops ban by allowing trans people to continue to serve

It’s sad this has to actually be said now

From last year: Ivanka Trump gave false sales figures for projects in:

"China's goal is simple: to replace the US as the world's leading super power," says Amy Hess of the @FBI, "and they did and will continue to break societal laws and norms to get there. In fact, we have seen an increasing level of [cyber] sophistication."

Twitter removes 5,000 bot accounts that called Mueller's Russia report a hoax: report

Jared Kushner, at the TIME 100 summit, just claimed that the ensuing investigations that stemmed from the Russia investigation have been more harmful to the country than the initial Russian interference itself, which he described as a couple of Facebook ads.

"We want to be as transparent as possible" the DVG Prince messaged via encrypted app that won't be archived or accountable

So @SpeakerPelosi strategy is to hold hearings, and then impeach. I think that's absolutely right. Hearings will bleed into Assange's extradition - and Wikileaks being charged with directly hacking the election.

Good morning. It's barely 7am, and the President of the United States has already criticized and threatened a newspaper, complained about the media generally, rated cable news morning shows, and threatened new tarrifs on our closest allies based on something he just watched on TV

Leader of militia detaining migrants allegedly said group trained to assassinate Soros, Clinton, Obama, complaint says

Mueller outlines, for the first time, the “various Russian contacts” Joseph Mifsud maintained while living in London—including a “one-time employee” of the Internet Research Agency. Mifsud told Papadopoulos that Russia had Clinton’s emails in April 2016.

The census case is, put simply, a test of whether the truth still matters at the Supreme Court.

Ok everyone gather the kids around, the President is going to speak to them...

“Kentucky ranks No. 49 for quality of health care, No. 38 in higher education, No. 45 in economic opportunity and No. 46 in fiscal stability. How does McConnell who has represented Kentucky for more than three decades — explain numbers like these?”

Well, now we know what kind of porn the President likes.

Wikileaks servers being moved to Russia before the Podesta Emails were released, a discovery broken by Laurelai Bailey on Patribotics, absolutely fits this theory. Wikileaks are the unnamed GRU co-conspirators in Mueller's indictment. Bet on it.

And I’m the “leader of the free world (lol)” so I will use Twitter to complain about not having more followers

Trump’s Fed nominee Stephen Moore is one sick puppy.

You do realize you're talking about yourself, right?

For many this is worse than obstruction of justice: 85,000 young children have died in Yemen and the Trump Administration is taking actions that will make conditions even more dire, over Congress’ objections.

Reminder: Today is the revised deadline that House Ways and Means Chairman Richard Neal set for the IRS to provide six years of Trump's tax returns to the Committee.

Under Trump and the GOP, America is an embarrassment to the world.

.@realDonaldTrump says Congress can't investigate him, citing a Supreme Court decision from 1880. Problem: that decision was overruled in 1927.

"The GOP has embraced utter and complete moral nihilism."

Bernie just claimed he never supported the governance model in the Soviet Union. Video evidence would show otherwise.

“We are not even sure whether we are having the resolution tomorrow, because of the threats of a veto from the US,”

How Putin and Trump wish the US to be portrayed.

New ad from @StandUpRepublic: As a candidate, Trump invited a sweeping information warfare attack on the nation. As President, he's done everything he can to cover it up. Now Congress must act to defend our democracy from foreign influence and his violations of the rule of law.

While on a trip to Cote d'Ivoire last week to help Ivanka Trump promote women’s access to capital in Africa, Senator Lindsey Graham warned of religious wars with “radical ideology” that would be “hell on earth for women” if they are not “destroyed"

Bernie Sanders does not support Impeaching Trump, arguing that those in Congress can't walk and chew gum at the same time. A problem with this argument is that it would extend to taking the necessary time to further investigate Trump as well.

The only republican who voted for all three articles of impeachment against Nixon quoted Abraham Lincoln saying "we cannot escape history."

Trump will visit Queen Elizabeth in June, U.K. reports say

“Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac created a new job — president — transferring some of the work traditionally done by the CEOs to the new positions, according to government investigators. The presidents will be paid more than $3 million each.”

Mueller Report: Did Assange, GRU Conspire Since 2010?

Today's Presidential ravings of innocence (so far)

  1. Sorry to say but is by far the best of the morning political shows on television. It rightfully has BY FAR the highest ratings, not even close. Morning Psycho (Joe), who helped get me elected in 2016 by having me on (free) all the time, has nosedived, too Angry...
  2. In the “old days” if you were President and you had a good economy, you were basically immune from criticism. Remember, “It’s the economy stupid.” Today I have, as President, perhaps the greatest economy in history...and to the Mainstream Media, it means NOTHING. But it will!
  3. The Radical Left Democrats, together with their leaders in the Fake News Media, have gone totally insane! I guess that means that the Republican agenda is working. Stay tuned for more!
  4. I will be going to Green Bay, Wisconsin, for a really big Rally on Saturday Evening. Big crowd expected, much to talk about. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
  5. I wonder if the New York Times will apologize to me a second time, as they did after the 2016 Election. But this one will have to be a far bigger & better apology. On this one they will have to get down on their knees & beg for forgiveness-they are truly the Enemy of the People!
  6. Paul Krugman, of the Fake News New York Times, has lost all credibility, as has the Times itself, with his false and highly inaccurate writings on me. He is obsessed with hatred, just as others are obsessed with how stupid he is. He said Market would crash, Only Record Highs!
