What makes Election 2020 so fraught is that Trump is facing so much risk of legal accountability that he has unusual incentives to try to cling to power.

A year ago, a study found the US was the best-prepared country in the world for a pandemic. So how did we bungle Covid-19 so badly? I worked with @johnnywharris  on this @nytopinion  video explainer. We try to use video to provide accountability:

Poor standards of production and a lack of accountability has resulted in frequent incidents related to faulty ammunition being produced by the Ordnance Factory Board, an internal Army assessment has found

This line in particular struck me: "They feign shock to avoid accountability."

Memphis police brought “taser shields,” capable of delivering shocks of up to 320 volts of electricity, to a protest calling for accountability for Breonna Taylor’s death. The county sheriff’s office is calling the rollout a “regrettable mistake.”

@PalantirTech  must take effective steps to ensure that its contracts with ICE are not contributing to abuses against migrants and asylum-seekers. Demandaccountability from @PalantirTech 

During a national debate on policing and race, the DOJ under Trump & Barr has simply stopped enforcing many of the consent decree agreements w/ some of America's most broken police departments. That means no accountability for racism, use-of-force, etc

"We need greater leadership, greater accountability and greater investment at the centre of our approach." - Minister@liz_sugg , @foreignoffice  on preventing violence against women and girls. 📺Watch our event live here: | #GenerationEquality  #UNGA

CPJ and @NewsEditors  will support local reporting on press freedom violations and accountability in relation to coverage of protests against police violence through the U.S. Press Freedom Accountability Project. Apply here:

The Anita Hill-led survey issued by the Hollywood Commission found that nearly two-thirds of its respondents see little or no accountability for sexual offenders in the industry even since #MeToo

Newly declassified text messages indicate no crime. No evidence of wrong doing. "Mad scramble" to try and entrap @GenFlynn  & @realDonaldTrump  in 2017. shameful to see no accountability at all @MorningsMaria  @FoxBusiness 

We voted no on the McConnell-GOP bill because among other problems it includes huge bailouts without protections for people and workers and without accountability, and because it shortchanges our hospitals and healthcare workers who need our help. These changes need to be made.

Authoritarian governments, not democratic republics, send unmarked authorities after protesters. These Trump/Barr tactics designed to eliminate any accountability are absolutely unacceptable in America, and must end.

Trump has used the courts to bully and avoid accountability his entire life. His consistent goal is not to win, but to delay. Including now. We need legislation requiring expedited consideration and enforcement of congressional subpoenas. For Trump, and for future presidents.

Our Country is doing so well in so many ways. Great jobs numbers, with a record setting December. We are rebuilding our military. Vets finally have Choice & Accountability. Economy & GDP are strong. Tax & Reg cuts historic. Trade deals great. But we MUST fix our Southern Border!

Remember that, once the violent suppression fails, the goal will be to wait this out. Don't let them. Keep a log of every officer that attacks anyone who raises their fist in objection and demand accountability. What you are witnessing is a fearful reaction from the state.

Last night, Trump used Lincoln’s legacy as a political prop. But presidents don’t earn a place in history by proclaiming greatness. They rise to the occasion by taking responsibility, trusting experts and acting in public interest. Americans want accountability, not backdrops.

What we’re witnessing, yet again, is what happens when police receive all of the tools of war and virtually none of the accountability for the violence that they perpetrate.

The nonpartisan Government Accountability Office has found the Trump Administration broke the law by withholding military aid from Ukraine. Trump’s willingness to break the law to coerce Ukraine to help him cheat in the next election shows the magnitude of his abuse of power.

Brett Kavanaugh's record as a judge and lawyer is clear: hostile to health care for millions, opposed to the CFPB & corporate accountability, thinks Presidents like Trump are above the law – and conservatives are confident that he would overturn Roe v. Wade. I'll be voting no.
