The swamp is coming from inside the campaign. @kenvogel  @laforgia_  & @Hailey_Fuchs  on the lobbyists riding the Trump train.

Once private universities stop playing chicken with parents' and their tuition deposits, and start admitting that they can't provide the "experience" this fall that everyone is paying through the nose for -- what next? From @profgalloway 

No idea why he blocked me -- I don't really know who he is aside from reporters mocking him on Twitter and don't recall ever interacting with him.

Thought we had figured out which Twitter was the worst Twitter but then the VC guys really stepped up their game.

When you sign a letter arguing for free expression, and find yourself in the company of people who are not your usual intellectual fellow travelers — that seems like a feature, not a bug.

Some people actually do get “cancelled,” and — as often seems the case — it’s because a big company has zero appetite for even the whiff of this kind of controversy and can easily dispose of the offending person.

Read this @katieglueck  voter voices piece, which gives you a glimpse — as these stories often do — into the haphazard, inconsistent ways many American voters come to their politics.

Trump began his term promising to build a wall to protect America from the world. He ends it building a wall to protect himself from Americans.

Just a reminder that Twitter didn’t censor or limit Trump’s tweet. They just added a little note saying “here’s some more information.” The nuclear response from WH should tell you something about Trump’s campaign strategy.

Obama’s campaign, not Obama personally, paid a fine for what was essentially late or accidentally erroneous paperwork on a large number of small contributions. Cohen and the president personally engaged in a deliberate scheme to hide a payoff and lie about it.

I never met any Russians. The meeting was about adoptions. Okay, about Clinton oppo. It was just one Russian. Well, two. Hillary did it.

If my signature had to match every time, I would not only not ever be allowed to vote, I'd never be allowed to use a credit card ever again.

NBC reports Trump's state department won't grant embassies permission to fly the Pride flag. Not even in Berlin, where the U.S. ambassador, who is gay, is spearheading an admin initiative to decriminalize homosexuality worldwide.

N.B. If Trump campaign can pay for Donald Jr.'s legal fees, it means the meeting was campaign related.
