The Trump administration has decided to send some U.S. manufacturing jobs overseas

Thread: As you can see from the attached tweet, I initially fell for Attorney General Barr’s March 24 letter of principal conclusions—but then I read Mueller’s report.

That controversial GOP gerrymandering guru? Three big Supreme Court cases hinge on his work.

Fourteen #Russia-backed YouTube channels spreading disinformation have been generating billions of views and millions of dollars in advertising revenue, and had not been labeled as state-sponsored, contrary to YouTube's policy

In his Fox interview at the cemetery in France, Trump told a new lie about NATO — saying Stoltenberg “made a speech the other day, he said, without Donald Trump maybe there would be no NATO.” NATO pointed me to their Stoltenberg speech transcripts, which include no such remark.

Update. George Nader will remain detained ahead of Monday's preliminary hearing; judge agreed Nader posed too great a risk to the community's safety and that there were "no combination of conditions" that would convince him otherwise. Story for @CourthouseNews coming up.

The Trump Kids Go Royal

Just in the last week, Americans have been shot and killed at their desks, in their homes, outside their grocery stores & on their community streets. We #WearOrange as a reminder that it doesn’t have to be this way when we turn advocacy into action.

Democrats line up for chance to take down Devin Nunes

"Heya! So like, if my client, who happens to be president, is like, working with a hostile power against America, could you like, let me know? Xoxoxo byeeeeeeeeee"

YouTube rightfully removing content from their platform is no different than a restaurant removing a product from their menu. If a society is tolerant without limit, its ability to be tolerant is eventually seized or destroyed by the intolerant.

NEW: We got leaked documents detailing 1,200+ different stays at @realDonaldTrump's hotel. Here's the guest who stayed the longest: a sheikh who wants to be president of Iraq, and who wants the U.S. to strike Iran. He spent 26 nights in a suite.

President Trump’s full answer to Piers Morgan on avoiding serving in Vietnam: “This isn't like I'm fighting against Nazi Germany, we're fighting against Hitler. And I was like a lot of people. Now I wasn't out in the streets marching saying I'm going to move to Canada...”

Firtash's attorney says he could be extradited as soon as early July.

The Senate has already disqualified itself from trying the case insofar as Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has prejudged the case (time to move on!)

Idiot thinks her job is to be a high school cheerleader. Sane ppl don’t “celebrate” tragedy. We *remember* & *honor* sacrifices during terrible events. We remember & honor heroes. No reason to “celebrate” DJT or any person who wasn’t there.

Parkland Survivors Launch Tour To Register Young Voters And Get Them Out In November

“Faced with the facts and the truth, Barr has done what many good defense attorneys do — attack the investigation and the investigator. But he's not a defense attorney.” My latest take

You can’t put lipstick on a pig—or slap a coat of paint on a wasteful xenophobic vanity project. A gross misuse of troops’ time & talent, & an embarrassing waste of taxpayer dollars

#BREAKING: Trump plans to declare new national emergency to impose tariffs on Mexico

Sean Hannity on Fox tonight, without any hint of irony: "Based on no actual crimes, [Pelosi] wants a political opponent locked up in prison. Umm, that happens in banana republics. Beyond despicable behavior."

Opinion: Trump is destroying three decades of hard work with Mexico

Gov. Ron DeSantis has lost as many as seven top aides in the past 24 hours. Everyone is wondering: What is going on over there?

This is the voicemail left for @GenFlynn’s lawyer by John Dowd, then the personal attorney for President @realDonaldTrump. Dowd was looking for a “heads up” on any information that “[implicated] the President” & reminding Flynn’s lawyer of the “warm feelings” POTUS had for him.

Tea Pain thinks this is likely to happen now that Mueller’s gone and Barr’s obstructin’ 24/7. If Flynn’s plea deal is gone, he can’t be compelled to testify before Congress against Trump. Expect some very Trump-linked lawyers to take over his case

Thousands of people are protesting in Dublin against the visit of Donald Trump to Ireland

Do you sense a lotta folks are headin' for the exits?

Today I was forced by the state of Missouri to perform an unnecessary pelvic exam on a patient terminating her pregnancy for a fetal anomaly. She is heartbroken over her situation and I was forced to do an invasive, uncomfortable exam. It broke me as a physician to do this to her

Trump has every autocrat's belief that all that matters is power in the moment, and anything is justified to gain it. He always has praise for Putin, Xi Jinping, Kim Jong-Un, Erdogan, Duterte.

He makes these comments on ground hallowed by the blood of our best and most beloved Americans. It is disrespectful and shameful. And sadly typical.

Within a week or two of an election in which the Russians were accused of meddling, the first thing Kushner and Flynn think to do is hold a sensitive meeting with Kislyak at Trump Tower

Members of the military deployed near the border have been assigned to spend a month painting a mile-long stretch of barriers to improve their "aesthetic appearance," CBS News reports. Rep. Joaquin Castro: "These are soldiers, they are not painters."
