Breaking Scoops

WATCH: Elijah Cummings in June: "200 to 300 years from now, people will look back on this moment and they will ask the question, what did you do? ... I may be dancing with the angels when all of this is corrected, but I've got to tell you, we must fight for our democracy."

‘I only have a minute, 60 seconds in it, forced upon me, I did not choose it, but I know that I must use it, give account if I abuse it, suffer if I lose it. Only a tiny little minute, but eternity is in it.’ — Rep. Elijah Cummings’ first floor speech is all too resonant today

WATCH: @GeoffRBennett  reminds a man how the free press works after the man puts his hands on him while he tries to question Amb. Sondland ahead of Sondland's testimony before Congress this morning.

‘We are so much better than this.’ — In February, Chairman Elijah Cummings concluded the Michael Cohen hearing by applauding Cohen's bravery and urging the country to do better for the next generation. Cummings has died at 68.

"All Roads Lead to Putin": Pelosi explains what triggered the meltdown.

Sondland throws Trump and Rudy under the bus in his opening statement. Read it here:

Stop what you are doing and watch this speech. The last words from Elijah Cummings' 92-year-old mother were, “Do not let them take the vote away from us.” “There are efforts to stop people from voting. That's not right! This is not Russia. This is the United States of America!”

Put the defender on the ground without even touching the ball 🔥 (via @shoffman_14 , @WSUCougarSoccer , h/t @ESPNFC )

‘Don’t be a tough guy. Don’t be a fool! I will call you later.’ — This is the actual letter Trump wrote to Turkish President Erdogan urging peace


Scoops of the Day

What is this thing everywhere where tough women who don’t put up with shit are “unhinged”?! Nancy looks like a bad bitch in control of a room entirely filled with men!

"Fifty years from now, schoolchildren studying American history will come upon this photograph, and they will instantly know who was in charge in that room - the adult standing and pointing at that pained face across the table." - @Lawrence 

Felt the need to ask WH if this is actually real and it is.

Trump and others keep talking about bringing the troops home. There are only 1000 US troops in Syria. They have not been coming home in boxes. They are elite special forces who were PUTTING ISIS fighters in boxes.

What's clear is Trump doesn't trust the US intelligence community, the State Department, or the country's media. But if Erdogan, Putin or MBS tell him something, it's gotta be the truth.

BREAKING: US Rep. Elijah Cummings has died from complications of longtime health challenges, his office said in a statement.

That bizarre letter was sent a week ago, FYI. Meaning it was...basically thrown in the trash by Erdogan.

Opinion: A new report suggests Trump may have committed financial crimes

In Opinion Timothy Snyder writes: Hitler and the Nazis found a simple slogan they repeated again and again to discredit reporters: “Lügenpresse.” Today the extreme right in Germany has revived this term, which in English is “fake news.”


Scoops of the Week

Turkey’s conflict in Syria took a major turn today. First alleged atrocities by Turkish-backed Arab militias, executing Kurds. US military officials tell me it's true, and they are DEEPLY concerned it opens the door to BOTH ethnic cleansing of Kurds and return of ISIS/Al-Qaeda

Thank you, Elijah, for being such a good friend. But we thank God even more that you were such a powerful advocate for your constituents and a true patriot fighting for justice and truth.

Former President Carter: We are now witnessing, on a global basis, almost in every area of the world, the very disturbing deterioration of human rights.

So these are the moderate groups who are supposed to bring safety & freedom to the Kurds from the SDF?

Seems like Democrats should be fanned across all media making a huge stink about how Trump has intentionally put US servicemembers in mortal danger and allowed ISIS fighters escape and regroup?

One young Hong Kong protester says she’s willing to risk ten years in jail on rioting charges because “I can’t see Hong Kong having a future if the movement fails.”

BREAKING: The Syrian Democratic Forces officially confirm they are letting Assad's troops into their territory in a bid to stop the Turkish onslaught.

BREAKING NEWS: The 2019 Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel has been awarded to Abhijit Banerjee, Esther Duflo and Michael Kremer “for their experimental approach to alleviating global poverty.” #NobelPrize

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer after meeting with Pres. Trump about Syria: "I have served with six presidents. I have been in many, many, many meetings like this. Never have I seen a president treat so disrespectfully a coequal branch of the government of the United States"

I'm still on the ground in northern Syria. Today there are some stunning developments. Here a wrap up of a remarkable day. @akhbar
