🚨“Tillerson’s arrival at the Capitol was handled with extreme secrecy. No media advisories or press releases were sent out announcing his appearance. And he took a little-noticed route into the building in order to avoid being seen...”(⁦@ErinBanco⁩)

Interesting: TILLERSON informed White House he was planning to testify and was not blocked. For seven hours, he talked about Russia, Kushner, Middle East & more to lawmakers and aides behind closed doors.

McConnell threatens to block everything even if Trump loses in 2020: "If I'm still the majority leader in the Senate [in 2020], think of me as the Grim Reaper," McConnell told voters in Owensboro, Kentucky, on Monday. "None of that stuff is going to pass."

John Brennan on the Mueller probe, “I don’t know if I received bad information, but I THINK I SUSPECTED THAT THERE WAS MORE THAN THERE ACTUALLY WAS.” Wow, he admits he was wrong! Congress should go back to work on drug prices etc.

John O. Brennan Retweeted Donald J. Trump

I subsequently learned from the Mueller report that there was a lot more evidence of collusion and obstruction of justice than was indicated in the misleading & highly politicized Barr memo. Your obvious fear of Congressional action is warranted & your dishonesty is appalling.

James Fallows Retweeted Maddow Blog

McConnell, not Trump, is the man who made this era.

Why McConnell?

-Routinized filibuster (when GOP was in minority) which had been exception;

-Blocked gun control after Sandy Hook;

-Blocked bipartisan statement on Russian meddling, in 2016;

-M. Garland;

-Wife now in cabinet
