Top GOPer on Armed Svcs Cmte Thornberry on sending military into streets: I am concerned that in the current environment, it would be all too easy to put our men and women in uniform in the middle of a domestic political and cultural crisis.

A moment like this calls for a healer-in-chief. But President Trump has weaponized the crisis, by blaming his political opponents and stirring up conspiracy theories, in an apparent effort to boost his own reelection chances. | Analysis by @Marshall_Cohen

Public health experts hope that the vast scale of the crisis will prompt meaningful political action to counter health inequities, which have been persistent in America for well over a century.

A crisis triggers underlying issues. It’s not just about Floyd, but about a string of similar deaths. Not just about race, but about economic & social injustice in general. Not just about Trump, but about a political class that has acted for years as though it doesn’t give a damn

3/ Political scientists raised questions about how sustainable it is to have a health official holding a separate management position during a public health crisis.

The Covid-19 crisis "has been marked by a rush to label, and demean, the other side," @PamelaParesky  and @CampbellSocProf  write. "Partisans on both sides lack even a modicum of curiosity about their political opponents’ views."

The BBC does the finest political journalism in the world. The current government would like nothing more than to break up the BBC. The BBC’s political editor is currently running crisis management PR for Dominic Cummings. This is plainly unacceptable.

Speaker Pelosi's ambition to create a select committee on the coronavirus crisis isn't about oversight. It's pure politics. She wants to exploit this crisis in order to fundamentally restructure America and advance her political agenda.

I applaud Mike Lindell for helping our country during this crisis by using his factories to make 50,000 N95 masks A DAY (!!) for our health care workers in need. This is not political - and you should do some serious soul searching if this act of patriotism is triggering to you.

As a child, my father escaped communist Cuba right before the Cuban Missile Crisis. When I traveled to Cuba for CNN, I pressed Raul Castro on his human rights record. Part of our job is asking tough questions of political leaders, something they don't allow in communist countries

President Trump is using a global pandemic as cover to exact political revenge against the Intelligence Community Inspector General who revealed his misconduct. Firing IG Atkinson is corruption, and it threatens our national security during a global crisis.

It is time to end the crisis at our border. And the only way we will end this crisis is for Congress to stop the political posturing and solve the problem: close the loopholes so that children are not subject to exploitation as they are right now.

I urge @Theresa_May  to appeal directly to Rajoy to end police violence in Catalonia & find political solution to this constitutional crisis.

Today’s Hope Hicks closed-door hearing is a political stunt. Democrats are looking to recreate the Mueller investigation. Meanwhile, the crisis on the border continues. When will Dems focus on helping the country?

The decision by Nunes to employ an obscure rule to release classified information for partisan political purposes crossed a dangerous line, and increases the risk of a constitutional crisis and another Saturday Night Massacre. My oped on Washington Post:

I don’t often quote Fox News, but Shep Smith has it right: A dwindling group of refugees and migrants a thousand miles away is not a crisis. We have laws to deal with it. Hyping this threat has nothing to do with national security — it’s only the worst kind of political stunt.
