Mueller on why Stone was a “central figure:” He “communicated in 2016 with individuals known to us to be Russian intelligence officers, and he claimed advance knowledge of WikiLeaks’ release of emails stolen by those Russian intelligence officers.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/07/11/mueller-stone-oped/

Walter Reed is not a place for campaign stunts. This is right in line with Trump’s utter contempt for those who sacrifice, like he never did.

truly incredible.

truly incredible.

How many are at Walter Reed right now because Trump deserted our military when he allowed Russia to pay to take out our troops? But sure, wear mask. It’s a good photo op to pretend you care. 😡

Ha, good for Trump finally wearing a mask, not sure the Zoolander Magnum look was necessary.

Taiwan has *6* active COVID cases, per Worldometers. 7 people have died. The last reported death was May 11. More people live in Taiwan than Florida. They’re playing baseball.

Wonderful scenes from TODAY in Taiwan... 😍

Yachtman strikes again. His superpower is buying yachts with taxpayer money, kind of a middling superpower you’d have to say.

This GOP lawmaker,  @Rep. Vern Buchanan, also received up to $7 million in PPP small business aid for 3 of his businesses... Buchanan is one of the richest members of Congress and is worth over $70 million. http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/the-same-day-gop-lawmaker-approved-tax-cuts-bought-yacht

If the threat from Stone was “If you let me serve a single day in jail, I’ll finally tell the truth about how aggressively you betrayed our country to get elected” it’s actually perfectly rational. Criminal but rational.

A sad, shocking story from the chief medical officer of San Antonio’s Methodist Hospital: A 30-year-old who attended a “Covid party” and then made a deathbed confession to the nurse. “I think I made a mistake. I thought this was a hoax.”

Republicans don't care about democracy. They are willing to let it die in sycophantic service to their party's out of control leader. THE REST OF US must save the republic. By working our asses off to vote out every single last one of the enablers, apologists, and cowards.

78 y.o. Alabama man staunchly refused to wear a mask or social distance. He’s dead now. https://bit.ly/32dZDd7

Rarely has anybody done what you just did.

New report confirms what we assumed:  @Lindsey Graham has missed “scores” of committee hearings to appear on Fox News. Lindsey doesn’t want to be your senator. He wants to be a TV personality. Let’s give him what he wants and vote him out in November. https://americanindependent.com/lindsey-graham-fox-news-committee-hearings-skipped-pandemics-medicar...

The bad news is that the hospitals are jammed pack with people with Covid-19. The good news is that we can fudge the numbers by saying some of those people died "with" Covid not "of" Covid. This will allow us to cover up our incompetence & malice.

Bad news: Large  #Florida hospital systems informed me today their models anticipate now hitting peak of current the first week of August Good News: Say 40% of “hospitalizations” aren’t in hospital for  #Covid_19 or being treated for it.They are positive but in for something else

Idle observation: almost all of the prominent legal experts claiming that Gorsuch and Kavanaugh dealt Trump a crushing blow on the rule of law, rather than letting him skate through November as Trump wanted, also supported the nominations of Gorsuch and Kavanaugh.

We agree with  @Nancy Pelosi: the way we move forward is to not listen to the president on  #coronavirus because he doesn't listen to scientists. This is about our children, and we are not playing politics with our children's lives. We need leadership that believes in science.

The President has been a complete failure in dealing with the #coronavirus and now he’s messing with our children’s health.

My statement on behalf of CAP on the Roger Stone Commutation "While Trump ignores the pandemic ravaging our country, he always makes time for corruption to save himself and his cronies. And while he denounces peaceful protests demanding the simple right to live equally under our

@Jeffrey Toobin on Trump freeing Stone: “This is the most corrupt and cronyistic act in perhaps all of recent history. Nixon at the height of Watergate never pardoned or commuted the sentences of any of the people involved in Watergate. He thought he could never get away with it”

Trump announces his comprehensive plan to fully fund schools reopening safely:

Let’s be clear: this is part of the cover up. Stone was an accomplice to Trump’s collusion with Russia. But he didn’t give up what he knew on Trump, knowing Trump would protect him. This pardon is therefore likely illegal as its intent is to obstruct justice.

We are much further down the road to authoritarianism than people recognize. Democracy itself is at stake in November.

“As a lifelong supporter of and participant in criminal cover-ups for the most despicable behavior imaginable...”

🚨#BREAKING: Read Ranking Member @Jim_Jordan’s statement on President Trump’s decision to commute Roger Stone’s sentence.

🚨 #BREAKING: Read Ranking Member  @Rep. Jim Jordan’s statement on President Trump’s decision to commute Roger Stone’s sentence.

Schiff: "Trump has engaged in countless acts that are ... destructive to our democracy while in office, but commuting the sentence of Roger Stone, a crony who lied and obstructed our investigation to protect Trump himself, is among the most offensive to the rule of law."

Nixon's Articles of Impeachment (1.9) "Endeavouring to cause prospective defendants, & individuals duly tried & convicted, to expect favoured treatment & consideration in return for their silence or false testimony, or rewarding individuals for their silence or false testimony."

Congress must immediately investigate this to see if it's part of a broader conspiracy to obstruct justice.

LAW & ORDER!

kicker on @PressSec announcement of commutation: “Roger Stone is now a free man!”

kicker on  @Kayleigh McEnany announcement of commutation: “Roger Stone is now a free man!”

Nobody disputes that Stone was going to jail rather than say what he knows about Trump, Russia, and Wikileaks. Now he is getting his reward. It’s not “a favor for Trump’s friend,” it’s obstruction of justice.
