New filing in United States v. Michael Cohen: Sealed Document PACER Docket

Someone want to explain to me who allowed a convicted Russian FARA agent to make propaganda videos FROM JAIL? AND WHY ALL US MEDIA AMPLIFIED IT FOR HER AND RUSSIAN INTELLIGENCE? Spicy asks the same question.

#BREAKING: Justice Dept will give House Intel Mueller probe material if Schiff drops Barr contempt threat

I asked @SecretaryCarson about REOs - a basic term related to foreclosure - at a hearing today. He thought I was referring to a chocolate sandwich cookie. No, really.

NEW: Pelosi's strategy is working—and Trump is just one step closer to being fucked.

Subpoenas to Hope Hicks & Annie Donaldson are interesting. Hicks was very close w/Trump and family and was there for most everything in early days. Donaldson took detailed notes that became somewhat famous in Mueller report. Expect White House to resist.

BREAKING: House Democrats issued subpoenas for fmr presidential advisor Hope Hicks, as well as former WH deputy counsel Annie Donaldson. House Judiciary Cmte subpoenas request docs by June 4, and they request that Hicks testify on June 19

Breaking on @MSNBC: Nicolle Wallace just reported that members of the House Judiciary Committee have subpoenaed Don McGahn's former chief of staff, Annie Donaldson, whose notes were central to Mueller's obstruction report, as well as Hope Hicks, for testimony and more docs.

Jerry Nadler: "When this Committee issues a subpoena—even to a senior presidential advisor—the witness must show up ... McGahn has a legal obligation to be here ... If he does not immediately correct his mistake, this Committee will have no choice but to enforce the subpoena."

Rep. Adam Schiff: "I think the case [for impeachment inquiry] gets stronger the more they stonewall the Congress."

Don McGahn needs to be disbarred McGahn works for Jones Day as a lawyer - below are Jones Day clients that need to be contacted or boycotted

Cohen is in prison, in part, for having helped cover up what happened with Trump Tower Moscow. Here he is being instructed in writing, he says, to lie specifically about how much the president's daughter was involved in that project.

Sen. @MarkWarner has introduced the FIRE act, which would require all campaign officials to report, within 1 week, any contacts with foreign nationals attempting to make campaign donations or otherwise coordinate with the campaign through the proffer of information or services

It's official Merrick Garland will hear Trump's appeal

Wow: @justinamash is NOT backing down. He is now talking to a school group on steps of the Capitol about why Trump impeachment proceedings should begin. “Really dangerous for our country” when ppl don’t tell the truth

Documents show how TSA, like other DHS components, has been asked to find funding it can send to the border mission if Congress does now approve funding. Potential cuts include investments in luggage screening equipment and even officers at airports.

At least 19 tornadoes ripped through central Oklahoma, Texas, Missouri and Arkansas on Monday. Severe thunderstorms are expected to drench and flood parts of Oklahoma today.@edlavaCNN is live in Oklahoma City:

Michael Cohen testified during one of the closed-door sessions with the Intel Committee that Trump was considering pardons for him and others to "shut down, you know, this investigation.”

"We don’t know what Trump’s tax returns are hiding. But the hints are troubling."

Certainly one of the highlights of the floor debate ahead of the passage of the #EqualityAct last Friday. Well said, @RepKatieHill!

Judge Mehta, Page 24: "It is simply not fathomable that a Constitution that grants Congress the power to remove a President for reasons including criminal behavior would deny Congress the power to investigate him for unlawful conduct—past or present."
