"It is one of those shocks, for me, having written about nine presidents, that the president of the United States possessed the specific knowledge that could have saved lives," Woodward says.

Bravo, IG Michael Horowitz. Decision to reduce Stone’s sentencing recommendation was beyond irregular. Flynn motion to dismiss is an even worse abuse of discretion. Would love for the IG to dig to that pile of rot.


‼️Trump’s digital ad asks people to support the troops—but it **uses a photo of #Russian🇷🇺made fighter jets and weapons**. So what troops does he want people to support? Trump should just move to Russia already
