Latest Scoops

#CensureTrump as urged by @jonathanalter is exactly the right next step, as my book with @JoshuaMatz8 explains:


Here’s the NYT story exposing Trump as someone who tried, from 2 weeks before taking the oath of office, to deceive the entire country about how Putin personally helped him win by criminal hacking into our election infrastructure. This is huge.

Two weeks before his inauguration, Trump was shown the raw intelligence data proving Putin’s direct role in attacking the 2016 election to help him win. @Lawrence just revealed that @nytimes is reporting this bombshell. It turns all of Trump’s denials into coverups.
Trump was asked a simple yes or no question. He answered no. His press secretary wants us to believe he meant “I won’t answer any more questions.” How dumb do those people think Americans are? Or are they talking only to those in their base who hear only what they want to hear?

Trump just said “No” when asked if he thinks Russia is still targeting the U.S.!! So much for the walk-back. DNI Dan Coates said the exact opposite a day ago, insisting that the current threat is at least as severe as that surrounding 9/11. Will Trump now tell us he meant “yes?
Art II, Sec. 4 - “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” This DOESN’T mean convicting POTUS of Treason removes the VP!
The wimpy reactions of GOP members of Congress to Trump’s insultingly phony non-denial denial today are almost as disgusting and depressing as Trump’s pathetic performance today was. #ProfilesInCowardice.
Trump’s pretense that he meant “would NOT have been Russia” when he clearly said “WOULD have been Russia” would be a hoot if the issue were less serious. In Helsinki, POTUS unmistakably said Putin’s strong denial overcame our government’s conclusion that RUSSIA was the hacker.
Good question — but not a hard one: Trump won’t speak for our country because he cares only about himself
