Q: What evidence do you have that mail in voting is rife with fraud? President Trump cites NYT and Washington Post stories but neither paper has reported that there is widespread fraud with mail in voting. Note: There is no evidence, thus far, that there is widespread fraud.

Wesley already knows I have a stack of photos at the ready.

@TwitterNews  I miss being able to travel and talk to voters in their spaces like living rooms and porches. I've learned that we can can still get people's stories told despite the distance. I've been grateful for each and every person who I've interviewed virtually. #NABJNAHJTweetUp

Here is what was happening outside the White House as President Trump was giving his Rose Garden address and saying he is an “ally of all peaceful protestors.” Peaceful protestors being tear gassed outside of the WH gates. I confirmed because I was teargassed along with them.

President Trump today at the White House said to me: “Be nice. Don't be threatening.” I’m not the first human being, woman, black person or journalist to be told that while doing a job. My take: Be steady. Stay focused. Remember your purpose. And, always press forward.

Important story: A Florida officer who knocked over a seated protester just before a peaceful protest against police abuse turned violent has been reviewed by internal affairs for using force 79 times in his roughly three-and-half years on the force.

John Lewis asked The NYT to publish this on the day of his funeral. It is necessary reading. He writes, “When you see something that is not right, you must say something ... Democracy is not a state. It is an act, and each generation must do its part.”

George Floyd's brother, Philonise, on his conversation w/ Pres Trump on @MSNBC : "It was so fast. He didn't give me the opportunity to even speak. It was hard. I was trying to talk to him but he just kept like pushing me off like 'I don’t want to hear what you’re talking about.'"

'I can't breathe,' Oklahoma man, Derrick Scott, 42, tells police before dying. 'I don't care,' officer responds.

WOW. Soon after he offered public assurances that the government was ready to battle coronavirus, Senate Intelligence Committee ChairmanRichard Burr sold off between $582,029 and $1.56 million of his holdings on Feb. 13 in 29 separate transactions.
