The broad reach of the president’s power to pardon or commute coexists with Congress’s constitutional power to criminalize witness tampering or otherwise obstructing justice by using pardons or commutations to reward those who help a president cover up his misdeeds.

Thousands of migrants in ICE custody have tested positive for COVID-19. 

Tomorrow @kasie sits down with @jacobsoboroff to discuss what, if any, medical treatment they’re receiving and what the administration is doing to mitigate the spread in confined spaces

Trump wasted precious months in preparing to help reopen schools and educate students during a pandemic.  @Rep. Katie Porter and I are pushing the administration to pull it together and provide a clear set of guidelines. It's July. Schools can't wait any longer.

Canada is beating the coronavirus, while the U.S. under Trump and his puppet governors wallow in sickness, death and failure. Are we “great again” yet?

While COVID-19 cases spike in the U.S., the curve is flattening in Canada

The line between democracy and autocracy in America is thinner than we realized. He’s asking to be re-hired while openly and gleefully acting like his idols Putin, Erdogan and Orban. If he is given a second term? No boundaries, no bottom, no coming back.

Stone won’t be silent forever. It’s not who he is:

E. Jean Carroll, who claims Trump raped her two decades ago and sued him for defamation, said the Supreme Court's ruling that the president doesn't have absolute immunity from state legal proceedings means her defamation suit against him should go forward. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-07-10/trump-rape-accuser-says-supreme-court-tax-ruling-...

Robert Mueller just essentially called Trump a pathological liar in public.🇺🇸

"I think the prosecution [of Roger Stone] was righteous and I think the sentence that the judge ultimately gave was fair." -- Attorney General Bill Barr, July 8, 2020

Mueller responds to Trump’s statement: “We made every decision in Stone’s case, as in all our cases, based solely on the facts & the law..The women & men who conducted these...[cases] acted with the highest integrity. Claims to the contrary are false.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/07/11/mueller-stone-oped/

The news isn’t that he’s wearing a mask. The news is that he’s got the goddamn gall to visit our wounded soldiers after doing jack shit about his buddy Putin putting bounties on them.

Trump cares. He really really cares. You can see how much he cares. About golf.

After 4 hours, Pres Trump departs his Virginia golf club. Was seen on the links from a distance by CBS News camera crew.

A time for choosing: Trump Stone Carlson & Putin or Biden Vindman Duckworth & our troops.

 @Claire McCaskill Whatever kompromat Trump has on  @Lindsey Graham is obviously something very dark and deeply disturbing. And I for one will be amused on the day when Trump inevitably decides that Lindsey isn't loyal enough and spills the dirt anyway.

 @Claire McCaskill  @Lindsey Graham Lindsey valorized John McCain while he was alive. On August 26, 2017—while McCain was battling brain cancer—Roger Stone tweeted this: "Karma about to get you,  @John McCain and you will burn in hell for all eternity." Graham endorsed Stone's commutation.

So we now have a president who mainly wants to be reelected to ensure that he can stay out of jail for the next four years. Let that one sink in.

The US is now exceptional where we should not be—in terms of our mishandling of COVID-19 and the subsequent human & economic costs —and we have joined the pack of countries where rule of law is in decline. We have it exactly backwards, and it is impossible not to be sad & worried

Liberals were right about George W Bush and they’re right about Donald Trump. The Republican Party is a political party incapable of governing the nation without ushering in death, devastation, and national humiliation. Just the facts.

Schiff on NBC: "A jury of Roger Stone's peers found him guilty on every charge. And what the president is effectively doing is saying, it's okay to lie to Congress, as long as you lie to protect me."

The White House statement on Roger Stone's commutation contained at least 12 lies and falsehoods. https://www.cnn.com/2020/07/10/politics/fact-check-white-house-statement-roger-stone-commutation/ind...

@Nikki Haley has the gall to claim we will “lose our rule of law” if we don’t re-elect Trump while she ignores his commuting the sentence of a seven-count felon that advised his campaign. You’re a phony, Nikki. You don’t care about the rule of law. https://www.foxnews.com/media/nikki-haley-2020-election-trump-joe-biden

A “mistake”? A mistake is like when I turn left when I meant to turn right. This is utter corrupt lawlessness. These people should be ashamed as they sit silently by while their leader tries to torch the rule of law to protect himself.

BREAKING: GOP PA Senator  @Senator Pat Toomey says Stone clemency was a "mistake" "“He was duly convicted of lying to Congress, witness tampering, and obstructing a congressional investigation conducted by a Republican-led committee."

The United States has over 3 million cases of COVID-19, and over 130,000 people have died — yet Donald Trump continues to say it will just "fade away." It’s unbelievable. We're paying the price for this president's incompetence every single day.

In Donald Trump's America, Roger Stone is rewarded for lying and Lt. Col. Vindman is punished for telling the truth.

Hundreds of federal prosecutors will undoubtedly be thinking about resigning this weekend. Perhaps the fact that the election is only four months away keeps them in their jobs. But every one of them knows they are witnessing unprecedented corruption in the White House.

It really looks like Trump will face time in NY State prison for tax fraud even if Pence pardons all his federal crimes on his way out of the White House. It’s far from full justice for all his offenses, but it’s not nothing either.  @David Cay Johnston explains: https://www.rawstory.com/2020/07/donald-trump-is-going-to-get-indicted-when-new-york-gets-his-tax-re...

@Rachel Maddow MSNBC: "If you are this president, there are really three prosecutors offices you had to worry about: DC, SDNY, EDNY. Now, in short order, Bill Barr has decapitated them all." https://on.msnbc.com/3gIMqga
