Whatever else you think of the Mueller report, a @PressSec admitting she simply made up a justification for firing Comey based on nothing is really bad.

Imagine being tortured and dismembered and then having the president of the country that is supposed to hold your killers accountable instead repeat their smears against you while he gives them a pass.

The contrast here is pretty stark:

GOP in one breath threatens Strzok with contempt if he doesn't detail Russia investigation, which is ongoing.

Then it says it won't release transcript of Strzok's initial testimony ... because its investigation is ongoing.

I'll second what several others are saying here:

What happened in NC is apparent *election* fraud, not *voter* fraud.

Calling it the latter will feed narrative that voter fraud is prevalent, when it's not.
