Latest Scoops

In the past week, we learned that the President of the United States:
1) Directed his lawyer to lie to Congress.
2) Has been investigated by the FBI for being an agent of Russia.
3) Hide the details of his meeting with Putin.

I wonder why he wants us talking about the wall?
Last year, big corporations saved an estimated $395 million every day thanks to Trump's tax cuts. Yes, every day.

This scam will go down as one of the biggest heists in American history.

Mitch McConnell calls #HR1 a "power grab" because it would:
1) Begin to overturn Citizens United.
2) Establish Automatic Voter Registration.
3) Bolster anti-bribery laws.
4) Protect the Voting Rights Act.

Yes. It's a "power grab" -- grabbing power back for the people.
The shutdown is diversion. Latest report: Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, he received 10 personal updates from Cohen, and encouraged meeting with Putin. If true, impeachment soon begins. https://t.co/EgkdZ0Svcx
Next week's New Yorker cover says it all.
After a long and hard-fought campaign, New York has become the latest state to adopt early voting -- allowing eligible voters to cast their ballot up to 9 days before Election Day. Now it’s time for Congress take early voting nationwide. https://t.co/0IdQsNGR5O
40% of Americans want the wall. 60% don’t. 40% support the shutdown. 60% don’t. 40% think we’re being overrun by dangerous immigrants. 60% don’t. 40% believe whatever Trump tells them. 60% don’t. America’s deepest divide is over Donald Trump.
When it comes to passing tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations, McConnell bends the rules, cancels hearings, and delivers the votes.

But when it comes to hundreds of thousands of workers, he delays, equivocates, and blocks the vote.

The contrast couldn’t be clearer.
You can expect Giuliani to throw out more ridiculous claims as Mueller closes in. Not only does this legal strategy defy the bounds of reason, it undermines the rule of law and seeks to justify serious crimes against our democracy.
The Trump's team evolution on collusion:
1) Russia, if you're listening, please collude!
2) Let's meet to collude. I love it!
3) Comey, you're fired for looking into collusion.
4) NO COLLUSION.
5) Collusion is not a crime.
6) The campaign might have colluded, but not me!
