McConnell's literal claim just now: Trump did it -- but the only time the Senate could lawfully try Trump was in January when I prevented it.

. @stevebenen  argues McConnell lost and took an off-ramp... but "if the minority still exercises veto power over the majority" for most bills, then Democrats Manchin and Sinema are enabling two more years of McConnell gridlock. @maddow  @MaddowBlog 

A combination of courageous policing and grim luck is what *narrowly* saved Pence and senators from being harmed or killed — that’s the core of the evidence the managers are presenting now.

The very blunt message to the senators here is that *they* escaped this MAGA violence for one reason — the police stood between them and Trump’s hardcore fans. Chilling.

FACT: A President under investigation for *firing the FBI Director* & obstructing justice who recently watched guilty pleas & flipping by his personal lawyer, campaign chair, deputy chair & national security adviser just fired his handpicked AG & replaced him with a loyalist.

Shorter Bill Barr: I stand by intervening to help a convicted Trump adviser, but I wish Trump did not admit what we are doing on Twitter

Paul Manafort’s lenient 4-year sentence — far below the recommended 20 years despite extensive felonies and post-conviction obstruction — is a reminder of the blatant inequities in our justice system that we all know about, because they reoccur every week in courts across America

Sessions tells room of reporters he may make it easier to jail them if they don't reveal sources, leaves without taking any press questions.
