Latest Scoops

The shutdown is diversion. Latest report: Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, he received 10 personal updates from Cohen, and encouraged meeting with Putin. If true, impeachment soon begins. https://t.co/EgkdZ0Svcx
Next week's New Yorker cover says it all.
After a long and hard-fought campaign, New York has become the latest state to adopt early voting -- allowing eligible voters to cast their ballot up to 9 days before Election Day. Now it’s time for Congress take early voting nationwide. https://t.co/0IdQsNGR5O
40% of Americans want the wall. 60% don’t. 40% support the shutdown. 60% don’t. 40% think we’re being overrun by dangerous immigrants. 60% don’t. 40% believe whatever Trump tells them. 60% don’t. America’s deepest divide is over Donald Trump.

6) The campaign might have colluded, but not me!
The 6 biggest Wall Street banks made over $100 billion in 2018 – a record. You can bet they’ll reinvest some of this in politics, where they get some of their best returns -- 1999 repeal of Glass-Steagal, 2008 bailout, 2017 deregulation, 2018 tax cut.

In just the past 10 days, we've learned:
--The FBI has investigated whether the president is working on behalf of Putin.
--Trump tried to hide the details of his meetings with him.
--Manafort shared polling data w/ a potential Russian agent.
--Trump is considering leaving NATO.
