SUNDAY CHOPS: Pulitzer Prize-winning reporters @jodikantor & @mega2e chat to @MicksterNoonan about their brilliant book #SheSaid , #MeToo , investigative journalism, #Weinstein intimidation, loopholes, turncoats, brave-ass women, and where we go from here.
@fmanjoo @fmbuttT @elizabethformahere is a <10% chance the wealth tax happens. It would be simpler if we just had a flat tax & got rid of all the loopholes/deductions.

Yesterday, Border Patrol agents apprehended the largest group of illegal aliens ever: 1,036 people who illegally crossed the border in El Paso around 4am. Democrats need to stand by our incredible Border Patrol and finally fix the loopholes at our Border!
Bipartisan Humanitarian Aid Bill for the Southern Border just passed. A great job done by all! Now we must work to get rid of the Loopholes and fix Asylum. Thank you also to Mexico for the work being done on helping with Illegal Immigration - a very big difference!
