Here we go again. If we would have held the line, this would be over now. But noooo, people had to get their nails done before going to the bar.

Bradley @parscale is nothing without Russia/Cambridge Analytica. You love to see it

‘Shame on you’: Judge threatens criminal contempt after Tennessee doesn’t expand mail-in voting

The Army gave bayonets to a historic unit to attach to their rifles in addition to live ammunition as the Pentagon equipped soldiers to deal with protests in Washington, D.C.

Government Claims Native American Lawsuit Over Covid-19 Funds Too Late

A warning is now included when you sign up for Trump rally tickets: "By attending the Rally, you & any guests voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19 & agree not to hold Donald J. Trump for President, Inc.; BOK Center; ASM Global; or any of affiliates..."

I made a short video to show the world **HOW** @realDonaldTrump and @PressSec Kayleigh McEnany CREATE A FALSE STORY and then how a team of sycophants and enablers work to SPREAD it around the world. Take a watch.

Trump: Sometimes you’ll see a building that costs less money than another building that costs more because the one that built the one that costs more, this one looks better. The one that’s cheaper looks better. They say how much more did you spend for that building.

Watch the full hearing where I talk about this and more

News: Trump’s 1st in-person fundraiser since coronavirus locked down much of the country in March will be hosted by energy exec Kelcy Warren. About 25 couples contributing a combined $10 million.

CNN tracked several airplanes that flew over protests in Washington, Minneapolis and Las Vegas. Government watchdogs fear the planes were used to track protesters and perhaps capture cell phone data.

Dear @realDonaldTrump: Are you referring to: -Russia’s interference of our election in a sweeping & systematic fashion? -Your campaign’s embrace of the Russian interference? -Your obstruction of justice? Also, why are you always so angry & writing in all caps? Are you ok?

This shouldn’t be hard: let’s not name military assets after men who, motivated by racism, took up arms against the United States of America. — Pete Buttigieg

Today, I’m introducing the Enhancing Protections for Whistleblower Anonymity Act. Attempting to reveal whistleblowers’ identities undercuts long-standing policy, endorsed by both Democrats and Republicans, to encourage people to come forward with allegations of wrongdoing.

BREAKING: Steven Mnuchin is now flat-out REFUSING to disclose the businesses receiving $500,000,000,000 in bailout funds, claiming the info is "confidential" 4.5 MILLION businesses received government funds. Zero transparency. Unconscionable, jaw-dropping corruption.

Mitch and I are neck-and-neck, but over two-thirds of my campaign funds have come from donations of under $200 - and our average donation is $35. Nearly half of McConnell’s donations are $2,000 or more! This grassroots team will send him packing.

At presser just now, Barr said DOJ is “concerned that foreign powers like Russia are also manipulating the ICC in pursuit of their own agenda,” but did not elaborate. Russia effectively withdrew from ICC in 2016 after ICC characterized its annexation of Crimea as an occupation.

Hey, want a photo with @realDonaldTrump? You can get one today, and it will only cost you $580,600! Read all about it

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on Trump’s church photo-op after clearing out of protestors: “I should not have been there. My presence in that moment and in that environment created a perception of the military involved in domestic politics.”

One of the four former Minneapolis police officers awaiting trial in the death of George Floyd has been released on $750,000 bond

When we impeached President Trump, we warned of the grave danger he posed. His abuse of DOJ, fatal mishandling of COVID19, and attacks on free elections since have proven us right. All Americans, regardless of party, must recognize his threat + speak out

Milley says he shouldn’t have participated in Trump photo op. “I should not have been there,” he said in a prerecorded commencement address to National Defense University. “My presence...created a perception of the military involved in domestic politics.”

It's in our darkest moments that we've produced some of our greatest progress — and we have that opportunity once again. Let's make this a moment of action to address systemic racism and propel our nation into an era of true equality and opportunity.

People generally don’t refer to the @SecretService as the “S.S.”

Why Are So Many N.Y.P.D. Officers Refusing to Wear Masks at Protests?

So. Let's set the stage... President Trump has chosen as the venue for his first rally in months, Tulsa, Oklahoma, site of a horrific massacre of African Americans. And he has set the date for June 19th, Juneteenth, a celebration of the end of slavery in the United States.

Texas Governor Abbott, who made masks optional statewide and hasn't built contact tracing capacity, wonders how people got sick

Newly released body camera footage from an arrest in Oklahoma City last year shows a suspect saying “I can’t breathe”- the officer responded 'I don't care.' The man later died at a hospital

Amy McGrath Takes Narrow Lead Over Mitch McConnell in Kentucky Senate Race, Poll Shows

Study suggests that routine face mask use by 50% or more of the population reduced COVID19 spread to an R of less than 1.0. Other studies have generated similar estimates. More widespread masking with higher quality masks could help mitigate a second wave.

Sounds like these guys won't even be there in 31 hours to present oral arguments on their own brief to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals? Odd timing!

I suspect we’re going to be seeing a lot of him again.

Vladimir Putin is furious over a diesel fuel spill in the Arctic, and that may spur green reforms in Russia

Opinion: We are living in a bipartisan state of denial about the coronavirus

Buffalo protester Martin Gugino was asked to comment on Trump's false tweet about him. Gugino only responded with this: "No comment other than Black lives matter. Just out of the ICU. Should recover eventually. Thx."

The president called the demonstrators "anarchists" and said they "must be stooped."

Unerring tin ear. Somebody chose this: “the campaign has already sparked controversy for choosing to host the first rally since the pandemic in Tulsa, Oklahoma -- the site of the Tulsa Race Massacre in 1921 --and on Juneteenth, an annual holiday commemorating the end of slavery.”

The Looming Bank Collapse The U.S. financial system could be on the cusp of calamity. This time, we might not be able to save it.

If Trump tweets up to 42 times an hour, who's running the country?

AG Barr's dismissal of charges against Michael Flynn was flagrant in its injustice. Today, @HouseJudiciary filed an amicus brief in the case of U.S. v. Michael Flynn condemning Barr's politicization of DOJ. Justice cannot be perverted for political ends

Fox News waited till the middle of the freekin’ night (1:30 am) to report this. Fox is literally coddlin’ Trump by reportin’ bad news when Trump won’t see it.

A bright note: So far, 858K Democratic votes have been counted in Georgia (in spite of all obstacles), and many more remain to count. By comparison, in the 2016 primary, 761K Ds voted. Every vote must be counted, and we must fight for every eligible Georgian’s right to be heard.

Attorney General Bill Barr needs to resign. His repeated lying and abuse of power is out of control. He has perverted our @TheJusticeDept into the personal law firm for @realDonaldTrump and his friends.

Flynn's lawyer Sidney Powell's brief is sloppy, editorial, conclusory, and relies solely on exculpatory evidence that doesn't exist. She insults the court and gives her thesaurus a workout. Read it here:

Retired judge calls DOJ reversal in Flynn case ‘gross abuse of prosecutorial power’

Four years ago, Trump won the senior vote by 7 to 9 percentage points. Today, those numbers have reversed, giving Biden the lead in most surveys among voters 50 and older.

Americans took down a statue of Christopher Columbus. In May the Taliban opened fired on a maternity ward killing mothers who just gave birth and newborn infants. This isn't something a US Senator should ever say.

Kemp admin seems intent on keeping Georgia voting broken for 2020


The top TWO employees of DOJ who just filed for Barr to exonerate Flynn at the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals - Benczkowski and Francisco - just stepped down *the same day.*

A QAnon believer is poised to win the GOP nomination in a heavily Republican district, meaning QAnon will likely soon be in Congress.
