NBC News: A NYC medical examiner says they expect to have the results of Jeffrey Epstein's autopsy results this afternoon.

Newsflash for white Christian republicans: These ppl disagree with you about Putin

The DOJ was informed that Epstein had been taken off suicide watch. In this high profile of a case, shouldn't we assume Bill Barr personally was aware of that, especially since Barr has proven to be quite the micromanager in any every case that could touch Trump?

Trump has not formally responded to Epstein’s suicide, beyond endorsing Clinton conspiracy theories

It is factual to note: @RealDonaldTrump loves cheap, illegal immigrant labor that he can exploit and abuse. Breathtaking - but not surprising - hypocrisy and dishonesty - from Trump

These Texas Women Had Plastic Surgery to Look Like Ivanka Trump


Good Morning, @senatemajldr! No, we haven't forgotten that you're a traitor, pleased to be beholden to the organizations and countries from whom you solicited bribes. You. Traitor.

Trump walloped by CNN’s Tapper for pushing ‘deranged’ Epstein conspiracy theory: ‘This is dangerous’

Yesterday, the current President of the United States accused a former President of the United States of murder. And Congressional Republicans didn’t say a damn thing. Shameful.

Pres. Trump's trade strategy might have started out well intentioned, but it has turned into a highly politicized, out-of-control wrecking ball that could end up destroying a system that has brought peace and prosperity to the world for 75 years.

What part of “well-regulated” don’t you understand?

Lady Gaga announced that she will fully fund classroom project needs in Dayton, Ohio; El Paso, Texas; and Gilroy, California, after the recent mass shootings in the cities

Now you're getting it. The test is how you go from here. He'll try to trick you by backchanneling a message of "Hey, it's all a big game." When he does, it's a lie, similar to the way the Soviets used to lure defectors home, "All is forgiven! You're getting a medal!"

It's sad to say, but the Attorney General of the United States has zero credibility to handle this investigation after the way he blatantly lied to the American people about the Mueller Report

@therickwilson: "The president is adding to the real fear that the facts of Epstein’s death may be lost in the raging hellscape that is Twitter even before they are found"

Trump administration says it won't approve Roundup cancer-warning labels

In 2009, Barr joined the law firm Kirkland & Ellis, the same law firm that represented Jeffrey Epstein in 2008 which ended in a no-prosecution. Donald Barr, Bill’s Dad was headmaster at the Dalton School. Even though Epstein had no college degree he was brought on board to teach.

Part of me wants to believe that the mooch has had a come to Jesus moment but part of me thinks the mooch just has a realty show/book/movie to plug.

Trump begins Hamptons fundraising swing

All pervy roads lead to Mar-a-lago

“The main benefit of controlling a modern bureaucratic state is not the power to persecute the innocent. It is the power to protect the guilty.”

Make these racist bitches famous Twitter. We are DONE with racism. Zero tolerance. Take their scholarships away, kick them out of their community programs, breakup with them...may they receive ALL the natural consequences of their behavior.

We filed a preliminary injunction to block a new Florida law requiring formerly incarcerated people to pay a modern day "poll tax".

#Russia's state media: MP of Putin's ruling party, United Russia, Aleksey Zhuravlev, blames the U.S. for the Siberian wildfires, heavy rains and flooding in Moscow. He claims that Washington is "experimenting with climate weapons," because "Russia surpassed their military might."

We will be protesting #MoscowMitch at his fundraiser in La Jolla, CA on Monday, August 12. Whether you can RETWEET or attend, here is the RSVP form to join us:

If Richard Nixon had accused LBJ of the Kennedy assassination - that would have been the biggest story on earth That Trump could accuse Clinton of murder to shrugs ... reveals how even Trump's own party does not think of Trump as the real president

NY Post, usually Trump-fawning, reports that he did mock Japanese and Korean accents while discussing Shinzo Abe and Moon Jae-in at a Hamptons fundraiser. Classy guy

The DOJ is now a farce. Barr is Trumps poodle and is essentially in the role Mitchell was for Nixon. If the courts uphold this, American Democracy may not be able to be saved without a second revolution

When you’re a racist the racism doesn’t seem that racist.

“It becomes very hard to know where a president’s personal and political interests end and his service to the public interest begins.”

President Trump exonerates Putin and Kim. He defends China's suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and ignores its acts Uighur minority. Then he accuses his own predecessors of murder. Yes, it's buffoonish. But around the world - many will choose to believe Trump speaks for USA

We’re not just calling him #MoscowMitch we’re putting up real billboards in Kentucky.

Charlottesville’s Confederate statues still stand — and still symbolize a racist past

Maybe putting Rudy Giuliani's former law partner Geoffrey Berman in charge of the Jeffrey Epstein prosecution, while reporting to Bill Barr, wasn’t such a great idea.

The window for averting a climate-driven food crisis is closing rapidly, a major UN report warns.

The emails—between Elliott Broidy and George Nader—shed light on the relationship between Bannon and a man now in jail awaiting trial on child sex trafficking charges.

A growing number of Democratic presidential candidates are calling on Walmart, one of country's leading sellers of firearms, to stop selling guns.

Taking the most prominent prisoner in the country off of suicide watch 6 days after an attempt seems like a truly bizarre decision.

New from me: Newly unsealed court documents cast new light on the role of Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein's best friend, madam and, allegedly, fellow abuser. She called some of Epstein's girls her "children"; she called one her "slave"

Yesterday, Donald accused the Clintons of complicity in the death of the accused sex-trafficker, Jeffrey Epstein. A sitting POTUS accusing a former U.S. president & Secretary of State of murder? It’s appalling, humiliating & unacceptable.

My friend, colleague and reporting partner @jkbjournalist and I sat and talked for a few minutes about Epstein’s suicide today and what happens next for his victims and the case. Julie K. Brown talks about Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide

Neither the practical impediments to impeachment and the 25th Am process, nor the foibles and failings of the candidates running to replace him, efface the fact that this presidency shames and disgraces the office every minute of every hour of every day.

To be clear -- this is the same allegation made about the Trump org and Russian intelligence in the Steele dossier -- which zero news orgs have ever followed up on. That the Trump org collected and passed on information about Russian expats in the US

This week, the nation's best editorial cartoonists took on the devastating mass shootings as well as the president’s and Mitch McConnell’s callous response to them. Which of these toons strike you the most?

Unsealed documents detail alleged Epstein victim’s recruitment at Mar-a-Lago

It is pretty clear that the Russians are building a new nuclear weapon. This is a really dangerous time to have someone who is out of touch with reality in the presidency.

The fact that Trump asked a foreign government to punish American elected officials and it isn’t odd is a sign of how badly we’ve gone wrong.

AG Barr - “This is an apparent suicide and I’m appalled”. How law enforcement would normally state it - ‘Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his cell, pending an autopsy and a full investigation, we have no further comment at this time’. Spot the difference?

REMINDER: AG Bill Barr’s father gave Jeffrey Epstein his first access to young girls.

This is gonna be a long fucking week

The current president accused a predecessor of murder to cover up sex crimes. It's not something to pass over with a joke

Hey @realDonaldTrump, under your watch: North Korea has NOT: -Eliminated any nuclear weapons -Eliminated any missiles North Korea HAS: -Increased nuclear fuel -Built 12 more nuclear weapons according to US intel agencies Why wouldn't Kim Jong Un smile when he sees you?

This is the best thing I've read about The Retweet. (My, @TheAtlantic is on quite a roll.) "[T]his presidency shames and disgraces the office every minute of every hour of every day."

CHECK THIS OUT. Trump is accusin' a former U.S. President of murder and rape, tyin' it all to the fact Bill Clinton rode on Epstein's plane, while leavin' out the fact that HE rode on Epstein's plane as well. These are the frantic actions of a man distractin' from his guilt.
