Latest Scoops

You can’t see it because of the fireworks smoke, but the #HRDerby competitors are down there —>
Top D on Senate Armed Services Cmte, @SenJackReed: "By heaping praise on Putin, and accepting Putin’s denials over the findings of U.S. intelligence on the world stage like that, President Trump did real harm to America."
CORNYN: "I think in the President’s mind I think he’s conflating two different things: The meddling and the collusion allegations for which there does not appear to be any evidence."
Update: McConnell just spoke in the hallway about the Trump-Putin summit. Here is his comment:

"I’ve said a number of times and I’ll say it again. The Russians are not our friends and I entirely believe the assessment of our intelligence community.” @SenateMajLdr-
McConnell speaks on the Senate floor, speaking extensively about:
1) Kavanaugh
2) Economy

McConnell has yet to comment on the indictment of 12 Russians last Friday, as well as Pres Trump's comments at his summit with Putin today.
McConnell spox, @davidpopp: "As the Leader has said many times, Russia is not our friend, and he agrees with the findings of the intelligence community regarding Russia’s efforts to interfere in our elections. Those positions have not changed.”
Senate Inte Cmte Chair BURR: "Any statement by Vladimir Putin contrary to these facts (that Putin ordered an influence campaign aimed at the 2016 elections) is a lie and should be recognized as one by the President."
MCCAIN really not holding back: "“No prior president has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant."
Hot fire from @SenJohnMcCain on the Trump-Putin Summit: "Today’s press conference in Helsinki was one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory."
GRASSLEY: "President Trump missed an opportunity to publicly press President Putin on whether he would agree to extradite the defendants to the United States to answer the allegations in court."
