Never forget that Jared Kushner has Khashoggi’s blood all over his hands.

Last night the House passed on a bipartisan basis the Amendment I partnered on with @RepSpanberger @RepCicilline & @RepMalinowski to stop 22 arms sales to Saudi Arabia & UAE. While @SecPompeo chooses to be a lapdog for the Saudis, Congress will not be. Where is Kashoggi's body?

Three Russians and one Ukrainian have been named as suspects in the downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 in 2014

“At one point, Republicans were willing to tolerateTrump’s brutish tactics and reprehensible character as the price of party loyalty; today many of them seem to relish it. They see the dehumanization of others as a form of entertainment.”

"Now I feel stupid," Jon Stewart said sarcastically. "This is a huge misunderstanding. I didn't know that they were busy ... I didn't mean to interrupt them with their jobs!"

Trump Admin Hid Shanahan’s Dark Past, Senators Say

Donald Trump's policies are prompting Mexico to question its decades-old dependence on the U.S. market

One problem with the shoddy vetting by the @realDonaldTrump Administration is that people who can be blackmailed are getting security clearances and being put in sensitive national security positions. @ActingSecDef should have disclosed this information at the very beginning.

Centrists are coming around to Elizabeth Warren as an alternative to Bernie Sanders

NEW: Ukrainian-Russian developer PAVEL FUKS files suit against the GOP fundraiser @YuriVanetik for scamming Fuks out of $200k he paid for a VIP package to TRUMP's inauguration. *It's illegal for foreigners to donate to presidential inaugural committees.

New filing in In re Request to Make Public List of Matters Related to Special Counsel Investigation: Miscellaneous Relief

It is highly unusual for the Deputy Attorney General to personally intervene on behalf of a federal inmate. Congress should conduct oversight to learn how the request by Manafort's attorneys to the warden of a federal prison came to the attention of the Deputy Attorney General.

'We have to do better': Florida paper rejects Trump reelection

Rikers Island should be closed forever, but seeing @TheJusticeDept abuse its power to give Paul Manafort special treatment should anger everyone. This is someone who betrayed the country for his own profit and the President’s, and the government does this.

“A demonic network that has been united against President Trump needs to be broken in the name of Jesus” - prayer from Paula White

WH says Hope Hicks is “absolutely immune” from testifying about her time at the WH, something Dems are flatly rejecting. They want to ask about allegations in Mueller report.

There was something pathetic and eerie about “lock her up” chants following references to “Crooked Hillary” over two years after the election in which Trump defeated her

White House Counsel: Hope Hicks Is ‘Immune’ From Questions About Her Time in Trump Administration

Wow– April Ryan: “Mr. President, will you apologize for the Central Park 5? Trump: “You have people on both sides of that. They admitted their guilt ... we’ll leave it at that.”

From a disillusioned GOP operative: ‘The Trump campaign is well aware of the organized participation of Proud Boys rallies merging into Trump events. They dont care. Staff are to treat it like a coalition they can’t talk about.’

My favorite Trump quote of the night: “We will come up with the cures for many, many, problems, many diseases, including cancer and others.”

Dan Bongino praises Trump's speech: "He absolutely blistered Hillary Clinton" (It's June 18, 2019. The 2016 presidential election was 952 days ago)

As Trump kicks off his reelection campaign, he claims the system is still "rigged" and Hillary is yet to go to jail for her "crimes", remindin' us Trump is weak and can accomplish nothin'.

NEW: "It wasn’t just tears, it was screams." Baby Constantin's caseworker gave me a rare look into what it was like to care for separated children. She had to use puppets and drawings to tell to kids that their parents had been deported without them.

Opinion: The absence of an ambassador at the U.N. has created a mess of confusion and inaction that is hurting the U.S.’s diplomacy on key issues

Marco Rubio drank the Trump poison and now it oozes from his twitter fingers.

Fuckoff @cnn carrying this ridiculous nazi rally even while he directs his toothless minions to chant that you suck. Zucker needs to be fired.
