Wow. #Erdogan  tells news conference the letter sent by @realDonaldTrump  telling him not to be a ‘tough guy’ wasn’t in line with diplomatic or political customs. He said they wouldn’t forget the lack of respect. “When the time comes necessary steps will be taken”

Hundreds of thousands of protesters are marching from five different Catalan cities to join the protest in Barcelona against the sentences of separatist leaders. More on this story here:

NASA astronauts Christina Koch and Jessica Meir venture outside the space station for the first all-female space walk

@RepJoeKennedy  on acting WH chief of staff Mick Mulvaney admitting to quid pro quo: "You're not supposed to use your position as an elected official to undermine, to ask a foreign entity to investigate a political rival. It's illegal. It's unethical."

I’ve covered the Mexican narco scene on/off since 1995 (I saw Amado Carrillo Fuentes’ dead body), but I never thought we’d see scenes like yesterday in Culiacán, where traffickers launched an all out fight - and won. What happens next?

STOP THAT TRAIN! Commuters on a crowded subway platform in Buenos Aires came to the rescue of a woman who fell into the path of an oncoming train after a man fainted, knocking her onto the tracks.

NASA astronauts Jessica Meir and Christina Koch are conducting the first ever all-female spacewalk outside of the International Space Station. Watch live:

This video allegedly from Culiacán last night. Check out how many cartel vehicles on the streets. This is called territorial control. It’s the cartel, not security forces, that seems to control the city streets. Not all the time, but clearly when they want/need.

At a human level, I understand that Mulvaney is very scared right now and acting out of that fear. Nixon’s chief of staff went to prison.

Read the fine print: Turkey gets Syrian Kurd land he’s wanted for years. Kurdish fighters have to disarm and get out. Russia gains influence. ISIS does what it wants. Trump cancels sanctions on Turkey. Art of the deal!!! If you are Erdogan

‘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

Gen. Mattis on the American political landscape: “We have brushed aside the possibility the person with whom we disagree might actually sometimes be right ... The surest path to catastrophe is to ignore our better angels and sever those bonds of affection."

NEW: Former Defense Secretary Gen. James Mattis roasts Pres. Trump: "I earned my spurs on the battlefield."

What did the president know, and when did he know it? All signs point to Trump amid Ukraine controversy. My latest —>

Meanwhile, Senate Republicans just quietly voted to advance *another* nominee to a lifetime seat on a U.S. court who was rated "not qualified" to be a federal judge.

In Opinion Retired Admiral William H. McRaven writes, "If our promises are meaningless, how will our allies ever trust us? If we can’t have faith in our nation’s principles, why would the men and women of this nation join the military?"

Having been caught red-handed secretly abusing his office, the president has pivoted back to corruptly abusing his office out in the open.

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.

This animated short about lion hunting will absolutely wreck you 😭 Sign the petition:

Anyone who has supported Trump bears responsibility for this.

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!

This morning, I was denied access to any and all classified documents related to impeachment. In my nearly 17 years in Congress, this is the first time that I’ve been unable to review documentation being held at the House Intel Committee. This is completely unacceptable.
