Vol 5 of the SSCI report on Russian active measures in 2016 — even highly redacted— is hugely important. But I guess the mypillow 🤡 and his poison tincture is a big news item or something. I can’t.

Trump says "we'll look at" treating COVID with an untested, toxic plant extract touted by MyPillow CEO

We're in a battle for the soul of this nation. Who we are, what we stand for, and who we want to be — it's all at stake. We've got to beat Donald Trump. Register to vote today to help us do it:

Black newborn babies in the US are more likely to survive childbirth if they are cared for by Black doctors, but three times more likely to die when looked after by White doctors, a study finds

You are dead wrong, Senator. The report shows extensive evidence of collusion between the Trump Campaign & the Russians. Read the report. Criticizing FBI investigative efforts while ignoring the political corruption of Donald Trump & his cronies is shameful.

Thread by Peter Strzok

Senate committee made criminal referral of Trump Jr., Bannon, Kushner, two others to federal prosecutors

It’s verbal diarrhea. There are no details to offer

#BREAKING: Cindy McCain, The wife of former Republican presidential candidate and Senator John McCain is endorsing Joe Biden for President. This is HUGE. Next up: Meghan McCain

The Real Russian Hoax: As this BIPARTISAN report concludes, the real hoax is Trump pretending his campaign didn’t have significant contacts with Russia, and that Russia did not significantly influence his election. His campaign did, and the Russians did — Senator Jeff Merkley

On Friday, Postmaster General DeJoy testifies before @HSGAC. On Monday, he'll testify before @OversightDems. I stand firmly in my belief that DeJoy needs to resign given the crisis at @USPS and how the Administration has endangered our upcoming election.

Trump was "keen to make himself available at any time" to meet Putin. "Trump was always asking if Putin's coming or not." "Trump followed up on the Putin meeting every single time" he spoke to Paula Shugart, repeatedly asking whether it was set.

4 YEARS AGO TODAY: I published a story revealing KONSTANTIN KILIMNIK's history & ongoing work with PAUL MANAFORT + his suspected ties to Russian intelligence. It was the 1st time Kilimnik's name appeared in the press. Experts privately dismissed my story

Ultimate Trump Voter Quote, from Crystal: "Oh I think he's crazy, and he may get us killed, but at least he's going to be truthful with us."

Senate Intelligence report: Manafort associate Konstantin Kilimnik may have helped coordinate the Russian hacking and leaking of Democratic emails, and Manafort himself may have had knowledge of the effort before the emails were leaked.

Americans are demanding action to END police brutality. It’s been five weeks since House Democrats passed the George Floyd #JusticeInPolicing Act--and still no action from Senate Republicans. How long will @senatemajldr make our nation wait?

“At the end of the day, the man with his finger on the nuclear trigger is a man whose mind is not on his job on a daily basis,” says Miles Taylor, a former Trump administration senior official who is backing Joe Biden. “That is alarming."

Oh come on @amazon, this is so disgusting

The first words out of Trump's mouth in Yuma, Arizona tease that he wants to shred the Constitution and serve at least 3 terms: "Considering we caught President Obama and sleepy Joe Biden spying on our campaign -- treason -- we'll probably be entitled to another four more years."

"They [Trumpers] are lying about the security of our ballots. These tactics are not new." -- Michelle Obama, last night A good reminder of who's behind the despair #deza that our election is hopeless and pre-compromised.

From @KenDilanianNBC The Democratic and GOP chairs of the Senate Intel Committee made criminal referrals of Kushner, Bannon, Donald Trump Jr. and two others to federal prosecutors because of suspicions the men misled the committee.


85 years ago last week, the United States created Social Security because we believed that no older American should have to live in poverty. President Trump is attacking that belief, announcing policies from his luxury golf course that would defund Social Security.

Coding errors meant 504,000 COVID-19 test results were not previously reported to the state, Texas DSHS says

“If the President is reelected, the guardrails will be gone and he will try to implement a vision that I think is much more damaging to our nation’s security than even what we’ve seen in the last four years,” says Miles Taylor, a former senior official in Trump administration.

Wow, what a day

Just a 130 degree F day in Death Valley— just a 100+ year record, that’s all. Nothing more than your typical cataclysmic oncoming train wreck of a climate change crisis.

Collins ads scolding Sara Gideon for taking "dark money" are pretty hilarious, considering the billionaires to whom our Susie is in debt. Hey hey, ho ho, Susan Collins has to go.

A lot has transpired in the past 4 years. I think some (many?) were naive in the beginning. Matters not. What matters is this: Michelle Obama made a passionate plea last night to take action. Vote early & verify it was received or stand in/on line to vote in person.

Trump tweets -- without providing any evidence -- that Democrats in California are “intentionally” shutting off power to millions of people

Rising Republican star faces accusations from women: Several women complain of aggressive sexual behavior from young North Carolina congressional candidate Cawthorn

"We are the United States of America. There's not a single thing we cannot do if we do it together."

Word that the Administration is backing off its assault on the postal service is certainly welcomed, but watching out for the people’s interests means eliminating any perceived ambiguity about the postal service’s duty to deliver for the people

Russian intelligence officer Kilimnik with given sensitive polling data from Tony FABRIZIO, pollster for Bob Dole, , Rand Paul, David Perdue, Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin. KILIMNIK WAS ABLE TO COMPREHEND THE POLLING DATA. Which suggests he was a specialist in it.

If @realDonaldTrump is this obsessed with my election, I know I'm doing something right.— Carolyn B. Maloney

Anderson Cooper arguing with the MyPillow guy about a miracle coronavirus cure is peak 2020.

2/ "It shows that the senators are actively collecting documents in an investigation that has taken on political overtones — and one Democrats say has been seeded with Russian disinformation — less than 80 days from the election."

Ben Carson has a history here

>> @AndersonCooper to MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell: "You really are like a snake oil salesman."

Perspective: Even if Congress rescues the post office, Trump can block the funds

Speaker Pelosi: "This pause only halts a limited number of the Postmaster's changes, does not reverse damage already done, and alone is not enough to ensure voters will not be disenfranchised by the President this fall. The House will be moving ahead with our vote this Saturday."

Also USPS workers have been told to leave mail behind rather than take extra time to deliver. That could lead to major mail ballot delays. And what about making states pay first-class rates for ballots? DeJoy's letter raises more questions than answers

We left out @RudyGiuliani who along with @jsolomonReports looks to be in trouble over Kilimnik

On October 22, 2016, O'Brien sent an invitation email to the group of expatriate businessmen, including Geovanis... In that email, O'Brien wrote, "I keep thinking that VVP [Putin] must have some great material on Donald."

And he thought Obama spied on him, hahahahahahaha!

Shortly after the 2013 Miss Universe, two Marriott executives were discussing a recording from one of the elevator security cameras at the Ritz Carlton Moscow. One of them "had clearly seen the video" of "Trump in an elevator involved with several women."

Read Trump's full written answers to Mueller's questions from 2018:

BIG in the final Senate Intel report on Russian meddling: Manafort was “a grave counterintelligence threat," passed campaign info to a Russian intelligence officer and Trump lied to Mueller about work with Stone to capitalize on WikiLeaks' email dumps.

Sorry, not convinced. He still needs to testify so the public can hear what he was doing until now and why; also he needs to submit reports/updates from now until Election Day so that Congress can monitor that he is following through on what he states below

Looks to me like Sens. Risch, Rubio, Blunt, Cotton, Cornyn, and Sasse are traitors.

On the Senate Report No 5, you should look at Carter Page section. Lots of redactions and even without all the evidence, I conclude, if he wasn't under a FISA order, it would have been IC malpractice. The boy is an SVR asset IMO.

This. Is. Collusion

Wow. Shameful, @SenateGOP. You write a report full of evidence of collusion with a named Russian intelligence officer, then say there was none. Well, guess what. @DonaldJTrumpJr is indicted under seal @SDNYnews as I have reported. Bill Barr knows that.

New Senate report has damning info on Trump-Russia ties.

I find him credible. He says more are coming forward. This could be good!!!

Mississippi schools have confirmed 199 cases among students and 245 among teachers and districts have ordered 2,035 students & 589 teachers to quarantine at home for 2 weeks. Mississippi Governor, pictured below, is said he's "very interested in college football happening."

Rep. Connolly: "DeJoy cannot put the genie back in the bottle. Sunshine in the form of public pressure has forced Mr. DeJoy to completely reverse himself. While this is a victory ... oversight cannot be interrupted. If Mr. DeJoy has nothing to hide, he will come to Congress."

Pool report: "Eventually, Biden nearly rounded back to [Tom] Hanks's question. 'This appeal to this macho notion, 'I'm not wearing a mask,'' Biden said, ''this is just the most irrational, illogical and egotistical exercise I've ever seen a president enter into.'"

Perhaps you can explain why a campaign needs so much contact with Russians and Russian intelligence. Did your campaign have hundreds of contracts?

Apparently, we haven’t been loud enough for Postmaster General DeJoy to hear. So, we’re going directly to his office. About to head to the USPS HQ with @LeaderHoyer, @MarkWarner, @EleanorNorton, @RepSarbanes, @RepDonBeyer, @RepAnthonyBrown, and @RepWexton

Ted Nugent- Seventeen-year-old Hawaii native Pele Massa was too young to marry Nugent. So Nugent made an agreement with the girl's parents to become her legal guardian. This was rated #63 on Spin magazine's "100 Sleaziest Moments in Rock" list.

Trump told Mueller in written answers that he recalled no conversations with Stone about WikiLeaks. SSCI: "The Committee assesses that Trump did, in fact, speak with Stone about WikiLeaks and with members of his Campaign about Stone’s access to WikiLeaks on multiple occasions."

In a section on Russian "kompromat," the bipartsan Senate intel committee report notes that Trump "may have" begun an affair with a Russian woman during a trip to Moscow in 1996.

How many of his executives did he kill in a helicopter crash to stop a money laundering investigation when he owned the Taj Mahal? Oh, my bad. That was you Donnie.

This bipartisan 966-page Senate report goes where Mueller feared to tread and unearths a gold mine of compelling evidence that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia’s government to win the American presidency illegally. And they’re still at it

Сделай Америку снова великой

Remember that Mueller dropped Manafort’s cooperation deal when he found out he was sharing info with Trump’s lawyers. IOW, Manafort never fully spilled the beans. It’s why Trump wants to pardon him — Manafort can hang Trump out to dry

Some details about the day of the Access Hollywood tape/Podesta emails release: Trump campaign team heard about the tape an hour before its release. Stone told Corsi to get Assange to "drop the Podesta emails immediately." WikiLeaks did so 30 min after tape published. (249)

"Lukatrumpo." I laughed.

"The Committee found that Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the Russian effort to hack computer networks and accounts affiliated with the Democratic Party and leak information damaging to Hillary Clinton and her campaign for president."

Hey, wait, what? Assange was working with the Russians? You mean like I told you back in 2016?

BREAKING NEWS: Brock Turner, Stanford Student Athlete Who Assaulted Unconscious Woman, Will Speak At RNC.

Paul Manafort needs to go back to prison.

Accusing elected officials of murdering people by negligently handling the coronavirus seems like a very slippery slope for Trump ...

Imagine having to explain to trump who Susan b Anthony is.

BREAKING: On the 19th Amendment anniversary, President Trump says he will pardon Susan B. Anthony. Anthony was arrested for voting in 1872 in violation of laws permitting only men to vote.

Here's how the report describes Paul Manafort's business partner, Konstantin Kilimnik — "Kilimnik is a Russian intelligence officer." No equivocation, just a statement of fact.

This is an important thread about rural opinion about the USPS. You might want to tweet it to your GOP Senators, who are busy kissing Trump's ass on this issue, as always.

Pelosi responds to Mark Meadows' fraud claim: "Don't pay any attention to them. Their purpose is to frighten people from voting. The more chaos they can create ... that's their purpose. Their purpose is not to remove obstacles from participation ... it's to scare people."

You have to love the Russian sense of humor

We asked Facebook to close the loopholes that let climate disinformation spread on their platforms. This is not it. The future of our planet is at stake. There’s no company too big or powerful to be held accountable for its role in the climate crisis

Not one of Trump's foreign policy moves has been about the national interest. Every single decision--but especially the big ones--has had one interest in mind: his own political fortune. Here he's transparent about it w/ Jerusalem. But the same principle holds across the board.

What a moment. Kristin Urquiza, whose father died from coronavirus and was a Trump supporter, delivered a speech tonight at the DNC and said: "His only pre-existing condition was trusting Donald Trump and for that, he paid with his life."

This + @michelleobama on repeat tonight

.@realDonaldTrump fast, over a week later? While you played golf? Iowans hungry? With no food? No water? No electricity? No National Guard? Really? You left Iowans alone, forgotten......on Election Day they should not forget.....

"That has always been our cardinal rule, to not delay the mail. To have someone all of a sudden tell us we're not delivering all the mail every day is a complete change in the culture that we were taught from day one. I've never seen anything like it."
