The defense insists it’s just Chauvin on trial, not policing in America. But there’s something cathartic about expert witness after eyewitness affirming the stories of brutality & lynching that we’ve heard for decades. Policing IS on trial. Will this change things? 10pET @MSNBC 

140 former National Security officials, including @MoreCowbellLiv  are calling for a bi-partisan 9/11-style commission to investigate Jan. 6 events. She joins me 9aET to discuss whether a bi-partisan investigation is ACTUALLY possible with the GOP protecting the fmr. Pr #velshis .

WATCH: @AymanM  joins live from Guatemala to show us a situation that he describes as “desperation” and the motivation behind immigrants leaving. Spoiler alert: it’s to stay alive. #velshi 

Is “caregiving” infrastructure? Biden says yes. GOP says no. I’ll ask MI @SenStabenow  how she plans to sell “soft” infrastructure as the future, in the face of criticism that Democratic social priorities are making it into a bill that should be about roads & bridges. 9aET #velshi 

“Like everything in Washington right now, your definition of infrastructure seems to be based on your political affiliation” @sheelahk  speaking #facts  this morning on #velshi 

BREAKING: former Brooklyn Center, MN, police office Kim Potter was arrested & taken into custody at 12:30pET today by agents of the MN Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA). Potter will be booked into jail & charged with 2nd Degree Manslaughter.


Retweet if you paid more than $750 in federal income taxes.

I’m hit in the leg by a rubber bullet but am fine. State Police supported by National guard fired unprovoked into an entirely peaceful rally

So, @realDonaldTrump , you call my getting hit by authorities in Minneapolis on 5/30/20 (by a rubber bullet, btw, not a tear gas cannister) a “beautiful thing” called “law and order”. What law did I break while covering an entirely peaceful (yes, entirely peaceful) march?

Let’s just remember the 57 members of the Buffalo Emergency Response Team HAVEN’T retired from the police dept. They simply left that team. They are still getting salaries. Paid for by taxpayers. Maybe they should be fired.

It’s now confirmed that when Trump went on Hannity on Thursday night and said “I just went for a test, and we’ll see what happens, I mean, who knows,” he already has the positive result and knew he had coronavirus.

I’m the one who got hit and I don’t tell the story this much.

Robert E. Lee High School in Fairfax, VA is changing its name to John R. Lewis High School

Trump said today “No true supporters of mine could ever endorse political violence.” On 9/18/20 he said: “This guy Welchi, he got hit in the knee with a canister of tear gas, and he went down. He was down. 'My knee. My knee.’ was the most beautiful thing.”

BREAKING: More than 56,015 have been diagnosed with Coronavirus in the U.S. in the last 24 hours. This is a new record.
