The climate crisis is a bigger emergency than the national deficit – it’s time Republicans reevaluate their priorities
JUST IN: Washington Post reports that MichaelFlynn's brother, Gen. Charles Flynn, was on the Pentagon call with Capitol Police that resisted their emergency pleas for calling in the National Guard during the Capitol attack. The Army previously denied that Flynn was on the call.
Trump is declaring a national emergency to bypass Congress, to build a wall we don’t need, to address a crisis that doesn’t exist, by claiming an authority he doesn’t have. If that sounds like nonsense, it’s because it is. It’s also plainly unconstitutional.
