Scoops of the Day

Confirmed: Bill Taylor’s opening statement was 15 pages long and led many in the room listening to his testimony to sigh and gasp as he described efforts to tie an investigation of the 2016 election interference to a White House meeting and aid being released to Ukraine.

TRUMP on Oct 3rd: "I spoke to (McConnell)...he said, 'That was the most innocent phone call that I've read.'" MCCONNELL today: "I don't recall any conversations with the President about that phone call."

A small point here, but worth repeating that even withholding the Ukrainian aid, for *whatever reason* wasn't lawful! The aid was passed by both houses and signed into law by the president. The president doesn't get to just withhold it.

Dear @PressSec  , Ambassador Taylor is not a "Radical unelected bureaucrat." He is a West Point graduate, who served 6 years in in Vietnam, before serving 4 more decades in the USG in some of the most challenging assignments we have. Shame on you for attacking his character.

Scoops of the Week

Uncle Wong is 82 years old, but that doesn’t stop him from trying to protect protesters in Hong Kong. "I don’t fear death. Not when the children are out here fighting for democracy."

Stunning surveillance footage captured the moment a high school coach in Oregon disarmed a student with a shotgun and then embraced him. Police eventually arrived and took the student into custody.

US officials tell me ALARM BELL RINGING among diplomats in DC that U.S. could one day be held responsible for Crimes Against Humanity for ethnic cleansing of Syrian Kurds by opening the door to it, watching it, encouraging it (Trump's tweets and statements) and not stopping it.

This woman’s 15-month-old son was scared when protesters surrounded their car in Lebanon. So the protesters started singing “Baby Shark” to calm him.

When American troops first arrived in North Syria, kurds received them as heroes with flowers and ululation. Now terrified Kurds in Syria are throwing tomatoes and stones at departing American forces. @akhbar 

#WATCH Nobel Laureate Abhijit Banerjee after meeting Prime Minister Modi: Prime Minister started by cracking a joke about how the media is trying to trap me into saying anti-Modi things. He has been watching TV, he has been watching you guys, he knows what you are trying to do

Tulsi Gabbard is progressive yet she still gets smeared and attacked by the left. What does that say about the current state of politics? What does that say about the rest of us who historically voted Democrat now being smeared by the left What the fuck do you want from us?

You think this impeachment is a LYNCHING? What the hell is wrong with you? Do you know how many people who look like me have been lynched, since the inception of this country, by people who look like you. Delete this tweet.
