The Man Who Enabled the Holocaust

As I told the reporter, I am absolutely not running for President. Any report otherwise is categorically false. I’ve been proud to campaign with my good friend Joe Biden, who is going to win the nomination, beat Trump, and make an outstanding president. — John Kerry

I don't think they believe it, and they don't care. They like being senators, and if signing on to a cult keeps them in DC, so be it.

A vote for Bernie is a vote for tRUmp. Don’t believe me? Ask the House GOP leader; who now realizes that his party’s only hope at victory in 2020 are Democrats maiming themselves... Again.

Senators should have insisted on a fair trial with documents and witnesses. They chose not to. Some argue, let the election decide — But that argument is unpersuasive when the President is trying to cheat in 2020

This country was founded rising up against a monarch. We can do it again. Trump's trial revealed an even uglier truth than his presidency - a GOP way too easy to bully into a dictatorship. But the 2nd American revolution starts today. My new column

A top NRA official has been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation by the group's lawyer, according to a recent court filing, in a sign of ongoing turmoil. The official received nearly a million dollars in compensation last year.

This should let you know that the Bigger Powers in the Democratic Party knows exactly what Bernie is up to and they know ALL the players.

Maine people sent me to Washington to speak on their behalf – but in order to do that, I need to listen. Today, I had that opportunity. I’m grateful to everyone who came out to share their views on the impeachment trial, and will carry their thoughts with me back to Washington.

Will no one aid us in our time of need?

The Des Moines Register just canceled a poll — and shook up the Iowa caucuses

You were the House Majority Leader in a Republican-controlled Congress that ended just over a year ago. You tried to kick 20 million Americans off their health care while sweeping the Trump Administration’s historic corruption under the rug. Does that ring any bells? — Rep. Don Beyer

Yang has Paul Manafort’s business partner, Tad Devine, working for his campaign. At a minimum, that makes him a poor judge of character.

NEW: Joni Ernst tells me that there would “immediately” be a Republican push to impeach Biden over Ukraine if he’s elected

Bloomberg spox @juliewood responds to Trump: "The president is lying. He is a pathological liar who lies about everything: his fake hair, his obesity, and his spray-on tan."

Iowa, you have a decision to make. Will we let the fear pull us back—or are we going to fight back? I'm fighting back. That's why I'm in this race

+1 Citizens United is a national security threat to The United States of America,Full Stop. Said it for years: The Kremlin weaponized Citizens United,Against America. Putin used CU to BUY the Congressional Republicans,Then,Stole the 16 election for #TraitorTrump,and here we are.

The two most intelligent candidates in this race by far -- and the two who accomplished the most outside of politics -- are @ewarren and @MikeBloomberg. And @ewarren is perhaps a bit more middle class.

1998 Lamar would ask him to resign or something

Bernie Bros and the Yang Gang: "If I can't have my way, I'll let Trump win again and that'll show you all." I hope @AndrewYang talks to his people, because Bernie's hopeless.

Senate Republicans defend vote to bar new evidence as Trump acquittal vote nears

With the scenes out of Donald Trump's impeachment trial these past two weeks, it's a good time to run against corruption.

Hey, @SecPompeo — what’s the message??? That the Free Press isn’t going to be free much longer?

Pompeo says that banishing NPR reporters from the press pool "sends a perfect message" about press freedoms

Montana lawmaker slammed for saying Constitution calls for socialists to be shot

No one wants to hear anything from war mustache but testimony and yet war mustache instead wants to show us that he too can be a member of the punditry. Testify, leak the book, or shut up.

Rivals warn Sanders campaign plans to game Iowa results, @natashakorecki reports ...

"80 million people were not persuaded to follow Hitler because they knew he was going to murder people ... they did not follow him because he seemed evil, but because he seemed extraordinarily good. And what convinced them of this was Goebbels’ brilliant propaganda."

“Kushner went on to suggest that Bolton and other senior former officials, including James Mattis and John Kelly, didn't have the chops to perform their jobs to the level needed.” Kushner really seems to combine vanity and idiocy to an unusual degree.


Trump Has Sabotaged America's Response to the Coronavirus Pandemic

Trump loves to hire the “best people”. Case in point: Jay Sekulow—one of the prominent members of his legal team. A review of his tax returns shows that $65M+ in charitable funds were paid to him & his family—who used it to buy homes, chauffeur-driven cars & even a private jet.

“..investors continue to pump billions of dollars into fossil fuels, governments prioritize policies to keep cheap oil flowing, and developers build on land that scientists say will soon be underwater.”

Tomorrow the #Trump campaign will be spending $11 million on one single #Superbowl ad. Trump does not tell the truth. We felt it was “in our national interest” to fix Trump’s ad and tell the truth….

U.S. confirms its eighth case of coronavirus, quarantine in effect

Wilson: We’re going to do as much as we can to make sure Donald Trump is not re-elected. We’ll be using all the tools in our toolbox and some of them are pretty frigging nasty. Good! Going high is nice, but we gotta swing hard and hit hard 2020.

Three years before writing "1984," George Orwell penned a letter detailing the thesis of his great novel and warning of the rise of totalitarian police states.

NEW: Man who tested positive for coronavirus in Massachusetts is a member of the UMass Boston community, university confirms

To fully understand how 2-bit this presidency is, consider that the White House was fighting with the National Weather Service over Trump using a sharpie to alter a forecast map the same weekend Trump ordered Gordon Sondland to tell Ukraine's president to lie about Biden on CNN

.@Lawrence O’Donnell notes the 49 Senators who lost the vote on impeachment witnesses represent 19 million more people than the 51 Senators who won. And neocon @BillKristol — of all people — says “for the time being ... We are all Democrats now.” This time the GOP went too far!

The Trump administration says in a court filing that two dozen emails revealing details of President Trump’s decisions about withholding military assistance to Ukraine are protected from a lawsuit under "presidential privilege."

"A federal judge has rejected efforts to dismiss charges against North Carolina businessman Greg Lindberg and two associates in what would be the state’s biggest case of political bribery."

The true character of a person is revealed in the Oval Office. We saw it with President Obama. We're seeing it with President Trump — and what we've witnessed from this president over the last three years makes clear that we can't give him another four.

Justice Department acknowledges 24 emails reveal Trump’s thinking on Ukraine

Coronavirus spreading in Munich shows difficulty halting new bug

I read the 151 page court filing conveniently filed last after the vote. It is loaded with evidence and witnesses pinning Trump and Pence. This ain’t going away

Just remove the impeachment clause from the Constitution, then

In past decade, "more than $65 million in charitable funds were paid to Sekulow, his wife, sons, brother, sister-in-law, nephew and corporations they own." Crooks & liars, stirring political foment to con people into "donating" money to pay themselves

Makes Zero Sense. If you want the people to decide, wouldn’t you call witnesses like Bolton so the people know exactly what happened? @SenAlexander should just stop digging his hole

Trump's legal team gave thousands in contributions to Republican senators ahead of the impeachment trial, according to data from the Center for Responsive Politics. Trump's lawyers also gave thousands to McConnell, Graham, and Cruz before the trial began
