In which ⁦@PressSec⁩ suggests the legal mechanism for compelling the production of documents and testimony by Congress is “lawless” because it is being used by Democrats.

So why are you supporting the lawsuit from @realDonaldTrump to end pre-existing condition protections? If you really support the protections, I assume we have your vote on legislation to oppose the lawsuit. Can you help me ask @SenateMajLdr McConnell to bring it up for a vote?

JUST NOW: Tried asking @realDonaldTrump if disagreeing with him means not loving this country. He declined to answer.

My question: Have you ever been to a social function with Jeff Epstein and underage girls. He pointed at the sky, said it was going to rain and walked off.

Crazy how CNN's "randomly selected woman Republican voters" keep turning up the same people

Again we have Trump engaging in reflexive control by making an offensive comment about @IlhanMN Remember, he wants the media saturated w this as opposed to Epstein’s lawyers lying about his Austrian passport & Assange working w the Russians. Eyes on the prize, Patriots.

Former IRS Agent: Here’s How I’d Investigate Jeffrey #Epstein’s Finances

About 1/3 of America still thinks PizzaGate and Obama being born in Kenya are at least “probably true.”

CNN hosted panel of Trump’s “female supporters” to discuss his racist tweets without revealing their history of Republican activism

“The pattern is devastating,” said NAACP president and CEO Derrick Johnson. "This administration is weaponizing the federal judiciary to restrict the vote.”

Let's now state facts plainly using proper terminology: In 2016, Assange was running an Illegal residency for Russian intelligence, presumably GRU, to influence the US election. Assange was a witting RIS agent. As he was in 2013 when WikiLeaks got Eddie to Moscow in #SnowdenOp.

Five years ago, Russia murdered 298 civilians on board of MH-17. Russia still keeps lying about this terrorist act. Please retweet it so others do not forget.

“Trump’s racist comments can be used against him in court as judges cite them to block policies”

Video surfaces of @realDonaldTrump partying with convicted serial pedophile Jeffrey #Epstein at Mar-a-Lago

A Palm beach Sheriff’s deputy told me for my series that their work release detail involved standing outside his “office” and signing visitors — including women — in and out. They never checked what he was doing in that office and the logs mysteriously disappeared

Watching Trump grab these women is even more revealing than him hanging out with Epstein

Senator @LamarAlexander just took to the senate floor to commend Ballad Health for investing in rural TN, completely ignoring the corruption-enabled medical monopoly they’ve created. Kingsport’s 40-day protest didn’t happen for no reason

Newly found footage from NBC News' archives shows Trump apparently talking about women with Jeffrey Epstein, now a registered sex offender, at a party at Mar-a-Lago in November 1992. The party was a decade before Epstein's plea deal in Florida.

Reminder: The full House will vote today to hold A.G. Barr and Commerce Secretary Ross in contempt of Congress for their refusal to comply with Oversight Committee subpoenas regarding the census citizenship question.

Courtney Wild, victim of Jeffrey Epstein today at press conference — "If you're a victim of Jeffrey Epstein, then you know what I know, he will never stop sexually abusing children until he's in jail."

July 17th marks 5yrs since the avoidable shooting down & murder of 298 civilians on flight MH17 by members of the Russian Armed Forces. If you really want to help the victims @RusEmbAU , be men, admit what you did & compensate the victims families

Ex-Ecuadorian president confirms Assange meddled in US election from London embassy

NEW: Jeffrey Epstein's post-hearing bail memo offers a "comprehensive forensic accounting" of his finances, with this remarkable understatement: "[A]s apparent from Mr. Epstein’s initial financial disclosure, Mr. Epstein’s finances are fairly complex."

The SDNY Epstein Investigation Could Verify ‘Savage’ Rape Allegation Against Trump

So Guardian was slammed for reporting that Manafort had secret talks with Assange in Ecuadorian embassy and part of attack was that embassy logs didn't show visits by Manafort. Now CNN reports Assange had power to delete names from visitor logs

Trump’s tweets are a distraction for something else he doesn't want us to see

"A 'sir' is a flashing red light that he is speaking from his imagination rather than his memory,"

Slovenia’s leading women are quite disappointed in Melania Trump: “She had more courage in her youth.”

Five years today since flight MH17 was shot down over Ukraine by a unit of the 53rd Anti-Aircraft Missile Brigade of the Russian armed forces. 298 persons lost their lives.

Putin thinks nothing of shooting a passenger plane full of innocent civilians out of the sky.

Liz Cheney calls Dem congresswomen ‘racists’ and baby killers instead of condemning Trump’s bigoted tweets

Steve Scalise addressed a white supremacist group and once called himself “David Duke without the baggage.”

“It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done,” @ava told me when I interviewed her about WHEN THEY SEE US, her @netflix magnum opus about the five boys wrongly convicted for the Central Park jogger rape. The work paid off. It received 16 Emmy nominations today.

‘This is the agenda of white nationalists’ — @IlhanMN responds to Trump’s racist tweets by calling for his impeachment

Senator McConnell Says President Trump is Not a Racist

Never heard of a White House official asking a reporter something like this. I know we are jaded but... wow

Rep. Al Green's impeachment resolution forces the House to take action this week: they can debate, table or refer the resolution. Could happen tomorrow or Thursday

Facebook should not be trusted with #cryptocurrency plan: senators.

This is an injustice. We have a responsibility to protect our citizens—and to hold police accountable when they fail. No one is safe in a country with a broken criminal justice system. My heart goes out to Eric Garner's family today.

Judge bars Roger Stone from major social media platforms

Democrats look for bipartisanship in condemnation of Trump racism

Stevens, 'the rule of law judge,' known as a 'judge's judge'

Are you planning to stay entirely silent about Trump's racist attacks on Democratic members of Congress?

Ex-FBI agent @AshaRangappa_: the chaos on the House floor is ‘mission accomplished’ for Putin

Study by @TRACReports: Child sex-trafficking prosecutions under the statute used for Jeffrey Epstein rose dramatically under Obama and then plunged under Trump. Story soon for @CourthouseNews. The researchers' findings meanwhile are here

The Supreme Court’s Worst Decision of My Tenure

“If he is confident, why isn’t he letting these people on the ballot?” a former United States ambassador to Russia, Michael McFaul, wrote on Twitter about Mr. Putin. “Maybe he is not as popular and loved as much as we think?”

“If you are a victim of Jeffrey Epstein, you know what I know: He will never stop sexually abusing children until he is in jail.” Epstein accuser Courtney Wild speaks out:

Jeffrey Epstein’s former bookkeeper, in a deposition, said she arranged for underage girls to be sent to his parties, and others were sent to modeling assignments with wealthy clients where they would only be paid if they agreed to have sex.

Wildly unusual things the Republican-appointed Justice John Paul Stevens did in retirement: -Called for the repeal of the Second Amendment -Called on the Senate to move on the stalled nomination of Merrick Garland -Called Brett Kavanaugh unfit to serve on the Supreme Court

Holy crap. @RepSwalwell just went on the House floor and listed numerous racist statements made by President Donald Trump. Republicans were NOT happy.

"No basis for trilateral arms talks, China says"

Congratulations to Alex Acosta for the prosecution, and @AlanDersh (a/k/a/ Captain Underpants) for the defense. A predator was set loose to walk the streets.

NEW: A senior DOJ official said AG Barr made final call on decision not to move forward in prosecuting Officer Pantaleo in #EricGarner's death, siding with EDNY recommendation over DOJ's own Civil Rights division, which *recommended prosecution.*

Why is a murderous dictator who killed his own family member and also tortured and killed an American citizen, picture hanging in the White House?

Steve Scalise: House Republicans never disrespected President Obama. A House Republican to Obama: “You lie!”

"Hey, I'm a racist!"@realDonaldTrump wants you to focus on that statement instead of: "Hey, I violently raped a 13 year old, who reminded me of Ivanka, at Jeff Epstein's house."

Nancy Pelosi speaks about the resolution to condemn Trump’s racism. GOP Rep. Doug Collins tries to interrupt and have her comments ‘taken down’. She tells him that she cleared her comments with the Parliamentarian and triumphantly walks off to applause
