Scoops of the Day

Whatever your politics, we should never ever again elect someone so ignorant of foreign affairs, so blind to geopolitical implications, so bereft of moral and ethical compunction, and so apathetic to history’s long gaze. Syria will be a lasting stain on the Trump presidency.

@GOPLeader : "The inquiry should be suspended until the same due process rights that were given to President Nixon and President Clinton, they should be provided to President Trump."

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”

I hope Hillary has solid evidence for this. Otherwise, it's an incredibly fucked up thing for someone of her stature to just blurt out.

Remarkable to watch, in real-time, as the Mexican government proves that it doesn't have the firepower or willingness to take on organized crime. What an incredible glimpse into the failure of the state.

Scoops of the Week

‘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

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

"I’m not just an overrated general. I’m the most overrated general," Mattis says. "I'm honored to be considered that by Donald Trump because he also called Meryl Streep an overrated actress. So I guess I'm the Meryl Streep of generals, and frankly that sounds pretty good to me."

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.

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!

If this isn’t an endorsement of ethnic cleansing, what is? “They had to have it cleaned out” says @realDonaldTrump  of the Turks desire to get rid of Kurds from their Southern border.
