"Because [Trump] deliberately undermines the now evidence-based practices to get coronavirus under control, he's guaranteeing that the crisis is going be here throughout the rest of his presidency," says Democratic Sen. Chris Murphy.

He acts like the rest of us don’t now have access the intelligence. We do. I read it. It’s not a hoax. It’s very real. And his cowardice and bizarre fealty to Russia is putting our troops in danger.

🚨 Medicaid expansion referendum SUCCEEDS in Oklahoma. IT'S DONE,  @The Oklahoman confirms. 200,000 people will gain access to public insurance in one of the country's most conservative states.

Connecticut reports all-time record high in COVID-19 tests performed and a record low positive test percentage. Details ---> http://nbcct.co/FUa2eLb

What's so unforgivable is there's now no mystery as to how to get COVID under control. In CT, we kept everything closed until transmissions fell; we created an apolitical mask wearing culture; we tested aggressively. 2 months ago a hotspot. Today less than 100 hospitalized.

Fundraising deadline day. Here's a suggestion for tonight: make a donation to Barbara Bollier. Why? (1) We need a physician in the Senate right now. (2) The race is TIED, and if we win Kansas, Mitch McConnell is definitely no longer Majority Leader. https://secure.actblue.com/donate/bollier-csm?refcode=csm-tw200630

Students with disabilities have struggled during distance learning and they are going to need help to get back on track in the fall. Today, I intro'd legislation to make sure schools have the funding they need to support students with disabilities when school returns.

Chris Murphy is pointing out that the four experts are giving a safety message that is contradicted by the president. "That's why we're in the position we're in today where.. large numbers of people not complying.. because they're hearing something very different from" Trump

Brand new HOW TO BE AMAZING with Senator Chris Murphy  @Chris Murphy. If you want to watch, video is here: https://youtu.be/K-xEC3taTa4. We are also posting audio if you prefer it that way. Produced with Mark Twain Library. http://marktwainlibrary.org

In a phone call last June, Trump promised Chinese President Xi the U.S. would keep its mouth shut about the pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong. That's why the Chinese government moved so fast here - they know Biden is coming. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/06/29/world/asia/china-hong-kong-security-law-rules.html?smid=tw-nytime...

.@ChrisMurphyCT on the White House response to Russia offering bounties for American soldiers:

“We didn’t even ask them to stop, and that does beg the question, what on earth could Russia to do us that this administration would actually take seriously?”

Just heard a MLB analyst predict few players will opt out bc "guys have to answer to their teammates". If that's happening to millionaire players, imagine what pressure 18 yr olds are getting when they tell their college coach it's not safe to play... Sports' "man up" culture.

Trump Got Written Briefing in February on Possible Russian Bounties, Officials Say - The New York Times https://www.nytimes.com/2020/06/29/us/politics/trump-russia-plot-afghanistan.html

I just reviewed the intel. It’s not a hoax, Mr. President. And if you continue ignoring the facts, more soldiers and marines are going to die.

hey Republican colleagues, this is an easy one: if you get invited to the White House for a private, GOP-only briefing on classified, explosive information about the safety of our troops and also don't tell the Democrats and oh btw please tweet about it when you leave, decline

Every Republican who rushed to the White House to get this political briefing weakened the nation's security today. Once national security intelligence becomes just a political tool to be used at the whim of the White House, there is no way to effectively protect America.

I just left the White House where I was briefed by CoS  @Mark Meadows and top intelligence officials. They discussed  @The New York Times' hit piece falsely accusing  @Donald J. Trump of ignoring reports that Russia placed bounties on American soldiers in Afghanistan. A thread, 👇

It’s time for a massive reform of how classified intelligence is handled. This is unacceptable.

While reproductive rights got a reprieve from a devastating blow, Trump’s additions to the Supreme Court all ruled to cut off access to safe and legal abortion. We need to make sure Trump doesn’t get to push the Court further to the right. https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/supreme-court/supreme-court-strikes-down-restrictive-louisiana-abor...

Just fantastic. The White House believes that it's Democrats fault that they are pursuing a court case that could, in the middle of a pandemic that's killed 120,000 Americans, end health care for 20 million of us.

“British security officials have confirmed to Sky News that the reports about the plot are true.” Russia offered Taliban-linked fighters bounties to attack British troops - as senior Tory MP seeks answers https://news.sky.com/story/russia-paid-taliban-fighters-to-attack-british-troops-in-afghanistan-1201...

Russian propaganda's most important twitter account.

This has been reported openly - with details - by several news outlets. The briefing should be for all members of Congress. And the briefing must be given by actual intel officers, not just Trump's handpicked political appointees.

Anyone in Connecticut who claims to be a supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement needs to read this article today. Then ask yourself, are you prepared to support policies that will desegregate our state? https://ctmirror.org/2020/06/29/connecticut-has-a-rare-opportunity-to-tackle-housing-segregation-it-...

He might have been briefed and they’re lying. Also possible he wasn’t briefed bc all his natsec people know he DOESN’T CARE, so why tell him? Just work the problem without him. If he knew, he’d likely just get on the phone with Putin and make it worse.

New:  @Barbara Starr reports there were some efforts at protecting US forces in Afghanistan because of the intelligence re Russian bounties. If the threat was serious enough to increase force protection, why wouldn’t the president be briefed?

Repeal and replace is the longest running con in politics (spoiler: there is no “replace”)

HHS Secretary Alex Azar tells @jaketapper the Trump administration does not have the “exact details” of a health care alternative in case they get their way and the Supreme Court wipes out Obamacare.

Our President is openly working to help a deadly virus spread that has killed 120,000. Russia is putting bounties on the heads of American soldiers and he seems ok with it. He’s distributing white power videos. And that’s just the last 48 HOURS.

Either the DNI is lying (which is a massive problem) or the DNI withheld earthshaking information from President Trump bc he is so infantile and irrelevant that they’d rather he not know (which is...well...also a massive problem).
