Scoops of the Day

Massive attacks underway against the kurds in northern syria. No ceasefire. Total nonsenses there is. US military officials tell me they are ashamed, “sickened.” It’s cold now outside. What about the families, and kids, out of their homes? @OARichardEngel  #AmericanBetrayal 

The more I talk talk to sources, the more i’m hearing America’s betrayal of the Kurds, and the humiliation, “misogynistic” “squashing” of US ambassador in Ukraine for political motivations makes people think, we, Americans, have become the “bad guys.” Hearing it was gut punch.

Republicans on the committee intentionally broke rules to pretend Adam Schiff was mistreating them.

Do Hong Kong's citizens want protests to continue, despite the turmoil? Longtime activist (and Yale student) @nathanlawkc  says yes. You can see our full conversation on GPS, @ 10am/1pm ET Sunday on @CNN

Why is Chairman Schiff afraid of @RepStefanik ? Why doesn’t he want Republican members to ask questions? Why is he conducting more secret hearings after promising the American people an open process?

AG Bill Barr: "Immediately after President Trump won election, opponents inaugurated what they call 'The Resistance' and they rallied around an explicit strategy of using every tool and maneuver to sabotage the functioning of the executive branch."

If you were as moved as I was by Ambassador Yovanovitch‘ s testimony today , retweet #BravoMasha  !

Almost the same moment gunfire erupted in Santa Clarita (about 11 ET), Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith objected to moving a background check bill added to the Senate calendar on March 4. Said it shouldn't be "fast tracked" and it might stop her from lending a rifle to a grandson.

Adam Schiff just claimed he doesn't know the whistleblower's identity. He deliberately mislead the public about his office's connection with the whistleblower and reportedly knew about the complaint before it was filed.
