What’s clear is that on a broad range of oversight & disclosure - now including “urgent” whistleblower complaints, congressional subpoenas, Trump’s tax & financial records, and even readouts of calls with foreign leaders - the Trump WH defaults to stonewalling or defiance.

New: Inspector General for intelligence community unwilling so far to share details of whistleblower complaint in intel committee hearing, telling the committee he was not authorized to do so - sources tell @mkraju

Remember AG Sessions, who recused himself from Russia investigation, has fired the leader of that investigation, Director Comey

Barr makes this clear today: he didn’t simply misinterpret Mueller, he overruled him- “WE DIDN’T AGREE WITH THE LEGAL ANALYSIS..IT DID NOT REFLECT THE VIEWS OF THE DEPARTMENT. IT WAS THE VIEWS OF PARTICULAR LAWYER OR LAWYERS, AND SO WE APPLIED WHAT WE THOUGHT WAS THE RIGHT LAW.”

New CNN POLL: Do You Trust Most of What You Hear From the White House? Yes 28% No 71%

Those Florida races getting extremely tight: Scott: 50.1% Nelson: 49.9% DeSantis: 49.6% Gillum: 49.1% Both currently within 0.5% margin to spark automatic recount.
