Great segment with @PriscillaWPDE  a @Lauren_VEgand  o @MSNBC  a few minutes ago on the Nevada caucuses! Amazing how many rising stars are on th @NBCNews  roster.

Going for Brokered? Really sharp piece from @sahilkapur ⁩ and @ali  Vitali⁩ here on @elizabethforma ⁩ keeping her pitch consistently aimed toward unification. Speaking of which, a very good show of what our TV and digital teams can do together.

The president is bullying and smearing Yovanovitch as she testifies to facts in front of Congress. She's not smearing him or lying about him or making judgmental conclusions about him. He's intimidating the witness in real time on Twitter.

Spokesman for alliance of Native American tribes says Trump's commentary "smacks of racism" and president should "stop using our historical people of significance as a racial slur against one of his opponents."

This is the president’s lawyer saying the president directed him to engage in the scheme at the heart of the impeachment. Just to be clear. From NYT.

Not sure how will end up faring in the presidential, but one thing that’s clear from conversations I’ve had with him, interviewing him and reading his book: he’s operating at a different intellectual level — a much higher one — than the vast majority of politicians
