U.S. Senator from Connecticut.
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.
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

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...
. @Chris Murphy 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?”
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.
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.
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.
Democrats see a clear path to take back the Senate: "Something real is shaping up around the country" https://cnn.it/3eHx2QE
Repeal and replace is the longest running con in politics (spoiler: there is no “replace”)
HHS Secretary Alex Azar tells @Jake Tapper 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.
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).
