Responding to a question on the admission by Flynn’s lawyer in federal court Tuesday that she directly briefed the president in recent weeks on the case, Comey warned: “This guy’s getting treated in a way that nobody’s ever been treated before.”


Trump has denigrated the office of the President of the United States.


"According to the source close to the campaign, the Trump family is worried that Parscale could turn on them and cooperate with law enforcement about possible campaign finance violations. 'The family is worried Brad will start talking,' the source said."


Today’s Judiciary hearing was another attempt to rewrite history in President Trump’s favor on Russia. We witnessed a spun-up display that relied on conveniently selective declassification.


Trump has never respected the office that he holds. He sank to a new low last night in fully defending and embracing white supremacists.

Joe knows this isn’t about him—it’s about us. Make your plan to vote right now. We’ve got to vote like our democracy depends on it. Because it does.— Barack Obama


And that would literally require him going to the field office that conducted each investigation.๐Ÿ™„ As an aside, why aren't they asking these same questions of Rod Rosenstein? As I recall he signed off on the last renewal.

Lindsey Graham on Spreading Potential Russian Disinformation: It Doesn’t Matter If It’s True


Big new House Intel Committee report finds that "absent a significant realignment of resources, the U.S. government will fail to achieve the outcomes required to enable U.S. competition with China on the global stage."


Lindsey Graham is a traitor. He knows it. Americans deserve to know why he’s using the Senate on behalf of Vladimir Putin.


WATCH: Comey testifies in Senate hearing on Russia Probe


Graham going step by step now through the use of Steele dossier to get FISA warrants and what all Comey was briefed on. Comey is leaning heavily on the Horowitz report and providing short, generalized answers to Graham's questions.


I forgot about this old piece but Trump's taxes and ugly games by Ron Johnson and DNI Ratcliffe make it relevant. They are hurting our ability to find the truth.


Perhaps it's time to stop using Trump's stooges as "contributors"? Just a thought


Brian Kilmeade: "Donald Trump ruined the biggest layup in the history of debates by not condemning white supremists. I don't know if he didn't hear it, but he's gotta clarify that right away. ... Why the president didn't just knock it out of the park, I'm not sure."


My shouted question to Trump, which he didn’t answer: “Mr. President, who do you owe money to? Don’t the American people deserve to know?”


I enjoy watching Tom cotton ruin himself by attaching himself to a sinking ship.


If @realDonaldTrump ’s call to arms to white supremacists wasn’t every American‘s wake up call to answer the question “What did I do to stop fascism when it came to America?” I don’t know what is. Are you really going to answer “I voted for it.”?


Head of the FBI says white supremacists are the primary cause of violence and labels them domestic terrorists.


“His supporters said Tuesday it would expose abuses by governments in the Middle East, and in particular U.S.-allied nations such as Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt — three of the Trump administration’s closest Arab partners.”


Trump's family evidently refused to wear masks at the debate, despite them being required Should have thrown them out


Trump on that stage was the logical endpoint of where the Republican Party has been going for a long time - grievance politics, anti-science, conspiracy theorizing, authoritarianism, and indulgence of white supremacy. That's the harder truth than Trump being a blowhard


Insulin's fucking expensive! "In reality, insulin still retails for roughly $300 a vial. Most patients with diabetes need two to three vials per month...."


CNN's @ddale8 says while Joe Biden was "largely accurate" during tonight's presidential debate, "we had an avalanche of lying from President Trump." He says at points during the debate, "almost every single thing (Trump) said ... was inaccurate"

Trump has NOT rebuilt the military.

Chris Wallace just flailing. Literally the possible worst tv. No value, zero information, zero clarity. Lol Wallace just yelled “stop”. Just flailing.


This was a waste of time. And Wallace should be ashamed.


Under this president, we’ve become weaker, sicker, poorer, more divided, and more violent.


Don't use the word "smart"


Donald Trump isn't a law and order president. He's a president who breaks the law and creates disorder.


.@NicolleDWallace has it right: “Trump wasn’t debating; he was lifting his leg and peeing on democracy.”


Congrats to @JoeBiden on tonight’s debate. In Joe, Americans saw a real president, with the empathy, integrity & science-based plan needed to crush COVID-19, protect people with pre-ex conditions, heal our nation & build back better as we address the climate crisis. -NP


In tonight’s presidential debate the President said the “Portland Sheriff” supports him. As the Multnomah County Sheriff I have never supported Donald Trump and will never support him.

White Supremacist behavior was on full display tonight, featuring a call out for the proud boys to 'stand by' - it's surprising, but it's not like we didn't see this coming years ago.#Debate2020


America is saying no to the fascists


Moderator: Are you willing tonight to condemn white supremacists and militia groups and to say that they need to stand down? Trump: Proud Boys, stand back and stand by! But I'll tell you what, somebody's got to do something about antifa.

Anonymous juror said they HADN'T BEEN OFFERED THE OPTION of indicting the officers. The fcking AG never put it on the table to them, and then played it like the Grand Jury just… decided not to.


I have to compliment Donald Trump on doing an excellent job at tonight’s debate of demonstrating that he is a despicable ignorant fool.


That attack on Hunter Biden was beyond pale and another lie. He failed a drug test as a newly commissioned Reserve office. He was Administratively Discharged not Dishonorably. We have an opiod crisis and the President is smearing a recovering addict for political points.


Beau Biden was not a loser.


So Chris Wallace both-sides Covid. Unbelievable.

Joe Biden cited a horrific statistic to argue that President Trump has not been good for Black Americans: 1 in 1,000 Black Americans have died in the Covid-19 pandemic. The most remarkable thing about Biden’s statement? It was true.


Biden: "My son was in Iraq. He spent a year there ... He was not a loser. He was a patriot. And the people left behind there were heroes." Trump: Really? Are you talking about Hunter? Biden: "I'm talking about my son Beau Biden. Trump: "I don't know Beau. I know Hunter."


Chris Wallace just flailing. Literally the possible worst tv. No value, zero information, zero clarity. Lol Wallace just yelled “stop”. Just flailing.


Never seen a debate where the moderator has to say to a president, “ hold on mr. President you’re going really like this question “ as a way to regain control.


The Times correctly refers to Trump’s “outright lies” in its front-page news story on the debate.


As I said on @ABC tonight, this debate was embarrassing internationally, and it was embarrassing for our fellow citizens. And it wasn’t embarrassing because of the moderator, it wasn’t embarrassing because of Joe Biden. It was embarrassing because of President Trump.


Trump not only refused to condemn this. He told the Proud Boys to stand back and stand by. He is actively encouraging white supremacism and radical right terrorism.


The debate was a failure.


Debate moderator Chris Wallace asked if Trump would urge groups to stand down and avoid contributing to the violence. He sidestepped.


”The presidential campaign devolved into chaos and acrimony here Tuesday night as President Trump incessantly interrupted and insulted Democratic nominee Joe Biden.”


CNN Instant Poll of debate-watchers on who won: 60% Biden 28% Trump


So everyone saw Trump refuse to denounce white supremacy on live television, right?


"Pr*ud B*ys, stand back and stand by" is among the most horrifying things that could have been said tonight or any night on television
