  1. Laurence Tribe @tribelaw “Whoever...being a public official…SEEKS..anything of value personally …in return for: being influenced in the performance of any official act..shall be fined …or imprisoned..or both.” 18 U.S.C. Sec. 201 (b) (2). So even in the federal code, soliciting a bribe is bribery.
  2. Soledad O’Brien Soledad O'Brien sounds off to Lloyd Grove about why the cable news media’s been such an embarrassment during the Trump era. “What drives me more nutty than the president—who I think is obviously a terrible human being in a lot of ways—is the way in which the media does not know how to handle him,” she said. “Quoting people who are saying lies is a really bad strategy. When President Trump says the moon is made of cheese, well, it’s not,” she continued, speaking metaphorically. “What drives me really crazy is to see all the mistakes the media makes around [the problem of], how do you report on somebody who’s a liar, who won’t hold press conferences in a place where you can ask real questions?” “The idea of something being ‘racially charged’ or ‘racially tinged’—what the **** is that? Journalists will bend over and literally do gymnastics to avoid calling someone a racist. Or ‘verifiably untrue. ’ It’s just a lie! What is wrong with you? That actually drives me insane. It’s just a failure of journalism.” .......... Her targets include her former employer CNN, especially politics reporter and editor-at-large Chris Cillizza; NBC News’ Chuck Todd, the moderator of Meet the Press—whom she compares unfavorably to Fox News’ Chris Wallace—and MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski. https://www.thedailybeast.com/how-soledad-obrien-became-cnn-and-the-mainstream-medias-most-outspoken-critic?source=articles&via=twitter_page
  3. @David_Philipps Clint Lorance ordered his men to fire on villagers in Afghanistan he knew were unarmed, then tried to cover it up. He was freed from Leavenworth by presidential pardon last night. https://nytimes.com/2019/11/15/us/ ===================================== Fred Wellman @FPWellman · Nov 16 Every one of his men testified against him. He’s not a hero. He’s not misunderstood. He wasn’t worn down by combat after only being there less than a week. He’s a war criminal. 
  4. "...... "......Chief Justice John Roberts is ordering an indefinite delay in the House of Representatives’ demand for President Donald Trump’s financial records to give the Supreme Court time to figure out how to handle the high-stakes dispute. Roberts’ order Monday contains no hint about what the court ultimately will do. The court’s hold could last a matter of days or weeks, if the court is willing to let an appeals court ruling in favor of the House remain in place without granting full review of the case. But the delay could extend for months if the justices decide they need to hear arguments and issue a written opinion....." ================================= - what's to THINK ABOUT??.............they KNEW this has been coming for months now....
  5. Walter Shaub @waltshaub · 3h how long until Trump declares EVERY last person he hired a Never Trumper?

  9. Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump · 9h A new Republican Star is born. Great going @EliseStefanik !
  10. Aaron Rupar @atrupar · 6h Let's be clear about what's actually going on here -- Trump is redistributing American taxpayer funds to farmers to buy them off since he killed their export markets with his trade war
  11. @GeoffRBennett · 3h NEW: @SenSchumer on impeachment: “If Donald Trump doesn’t like what he’s hearing, he shouldn’t tweet -- he should come to the committee and testify under oath. And he should allow all those around him to come to the committee and testify under oath.”
  12. Ted Lieu @tedlieu · 2h Either@realDonaldTrump is too stupid to understand tariffs, or he is intentionally lying to the American people. The tariffs he imposed are paid by American importers, not the Chinese. Also, why are @POTUS & @GOP supporting socialism and cash handouts? =================================== w/o FACTS or issues........reduced to attempted BRIBERY of the people on the ECONOMY ?!
  13. "....On his show Saturday, Silverman was in the middle of a segment about Trump's former personal attorney, Roy Cohn, when he says his show went dark and his program director "came in and said, 'you're done.'" Silverman told the Denver Post that in the following segment, which never made it to air, he had planned to discuss what he called the Democrats' "strong case" made in the week's impeachment hearings. "I thought (Ambassador Bill) Taylor and (Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George) Kent were great, they laid a base," Silverman said on CNN Business. "I'm a trial attorney, I'm a former prosecutor. I know how to put on a case. And then (former US ambassador to Ukraine) Marie Yovanovitch. She inspired me. She was an outstanding witness, but if nobody on radio talks about it, how are the American people going to understand?"...... Silverman says the station, owned by the conservative Salem Media Group, didn't like his criticism of President Donald Trump. The station appears to have since removed the website for Silverman's show — the link to it now reroutes to a "404 Error" page. "I was frustrated that we couldn't talk about the facts of the impeachment case and it all came to a head as I was excoriating Donald Trump on my show yesterday,"..... ================================= wow.....pretty stupidly Blatant!! what happened to quiet buy-offs & announcing 'retiring to spend time w/family' ??
  14. GOP using Elise Stefanik in impeachment hearings because Jim Jordan has ‘zero credibility’ outside of Trump hardliners: ....because every time Jim Jordan speaks for the president, it just gives the Democrats an opportunity to remind the public that he has zero credibility and no shame, because Jim Jordan has been accused by seven people of covering up sexual abuse and ignoring sexual abuse of minors when he was at Ohio State,” said Dowdell. “So, I think that that’s another issue for them, which is why they had to bring out Congresswoman Stefanik, because their main spokesperson is Jim Jordan, and again, he’s only effective to those people who want to see someone yell and scream and those people are never going to believe anything the Democrats say.” .... https://www.rawstory.com/2019/11/gop-using-elise-stefanik-in-impeachment-hearings-because-jim-jordan-has-zero-credibility-outside-of-trump-hardliners-msnbc-analyst/ ================================ @Susan_Hennessey Donations pouring into Stefanik's opponent following her impeachment hearing performance. NY21 is a competitive district that Trump won in 2016, but went for Obama in both 2008 and 2012. ----------------------------------------------------------------- Tedra Cobb for Congress @TedraCobb · 7h #BREAKING! We surpassed $300,000 raised since @EliseStefanik’s political theatre on national TV
  15. Kyle Griffin @kylegriffin1 · 2h TIM MORRISON testimony: On or about July 15, Deputy National Security Advisor Charlie Kupperman stated that "the chief of staff's office had informed OMB that it was the President's direction to HOLD the assistance."......... & After listening to the Trump-Zelensky call, TIM MORRISON advised NSC lawyers John Eisenberg and Michael Ellis to review and restrict access: "Because I was concerned about whether or not they would agree that it would be damaging ... if the call mem-con or its contents leaked."
  16. Obama cautions 2020 hopefuls against going too far left ......"Even as we push the envelope and we are bold in our vision, we also have to be rooted in reality," Obama said at a meeting of fundraisers, according to The New York Times, which was in attendance at the event. "The average American doesn't think we have to completely tear down the system and remake it." The former president cited health care and immigration as issues....... "I don't think we should be deluded into thinking that the resistance to certain approaches to things is simply because voters haven't heard a bold enough proposal and if they hear something as bold as possible then immediately that's going to activate them," he said. Obama has expressed worries in the past that the 2020 field could be too liberal, saying in April that progressives could be adopting purity tests. "One of the things I do worry about sometimes among progressives in the United States — maybe it’s true here as well — is a certain kind of rigidity where we say, 'Uh, I’m sorry, this is how it’s going to be,' and then we start sometimes creating what’s called a 'circular firing squad,' where you start shooting at your allies because one of them has strayed from purity on the issues," he said at the time. "And when that happens, typically the overall effort and movement weakens."....... https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/470757-obama-cautions-2020-hopefuls-against-going-too-far-left
  17. Bill Kristol @BillKristol · 7h To read Bill Barr's speeches is to see conservative arguments once made with some complexity made crudely; and to see conservative arguments that once usefully challenged progressive legal orthodoxy now used to uphold an increasingly authoritarian variant of conservatism.
  18. North Korea calls Biden a 'rabid dog' for insulting its dignity It wasn’t immediately clear which of the former vice president's comments provoked Pyongyang's anger. “Anyone who dare slanders the dignity of the supreme leadership of the D.P.R.K, can never spare the D.P.R.K's merciless punishment whoever and wherever,” said the North Korean statement, referring to the country by its formal name, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. “Rabid dogs like Baiden can hurt lots of people if they are allowed to run about. They must be beaten to death with a stick, before it is too late,” it said........ ....(Biden) has specifically named Kim and Russia’s Vladimir Putin, calling the pair “thugs” and sometimes detailing Kim’s human rights abuses and attacks against dissenters. "It's becoming more and more obvious that repugnant dictators, as well as those who admire and ‘love’ them, find Joe Biden threatening,” said Andrew Bates, a Biden campaign spokesman...... https://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/north-korea-calls-biden-rabid-dog-insulting-its-dignity-n1082736?cid=sm_npd_nn_tw_ma
  19. @thehill · 3h Rep. Adam Schiff: "The most profound threat to democracy today is not from Russia. .. The most grave threat to the life and health of our democracy comes from within, from a president without ethical compass."
  20. Calls for AG Barr’s Impeachment Intensify After ‘Lunatic Authoritarian’ Federalist Society Speech ...."Another lunatic authoritarian speech as Barr goes from attacking ‘radical secularists ‘ [at Notre Dame Law School] to one month later attacking the ‘resistance’ at [the Federalist Society],” tweeted former White House ethics counsel Richard Painter. “Impeach Barr now!” “Bill Barr is the type of bare knuckles lawyer the Church would have hired thirty years ago to cover up sex abuse cases,” Painter added. “The bishop would have been someone like Rep. Jim Jordan. Neither of these men belong anywhere near the impeachment inquiry.” ........ “Yesterday AG Barr addressed a radical political group and gave one of the most vicious partisan screeds ever uttered by a US cabinet officer,” Pascrell tweeted. “Barr says trump should have king-like powers. Barr is a liar and a fanatic and should be impeached and stripped of his law licenses.”........ .... “Barr, in other words, is a key target of any investigation into Trump’s seemingly criminal abuse of power,” the article continues. “This gives Democrats ample justification to zero in on the attorney general.” ....... "I have warned for some time that AG Barr is the most alarming figure in the Administration,” Ifill tweeted. “A true believer who has been waiting for his moment and pitched hard for this job. He has an agenda and political view that is lockstep with Trump.” The incendiary speech also prompted the widespread use of #ImpeachBarr and #DisbarBarr hashtags on Twitter–criticism that was only amplified after people realized Barr’s broadside against left-leaning lawsuits and subpoenas was promoted by the Department of Justice’s official Twitter account....... https://lawandcrime.com/high-profile/calls-for-ag-barrs-impeachment-intensify-after-lunatic-authoritarian-federalist-society-speech/

  23. Holmes testifies he overheard Trump ask Sondland about investigations Holmes “has some specific quotes," a Democratic lawmaker said, that left "no doubt what the president of the United States was saying.” I then heard President Trump ask, 'So, he’s gonna do the investigation?'" Holmes recounted, according to the statement obtained by CNN. "Ambassador Sondland replied, that 'he's gonna do it,' adding that President Zelenskiy will do, 'anything you ask him to.'" Holmes said he was able to hear the conversation because Sondland held the phone away from his ear due to how loudly the president was speaking,... Holmes testified that after the call ended, Sondland told him that when it came to Ukraine, Trump only cares about "big stuff," such as the "Biden investigation" pushed by Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani. ........... https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry/holmes-gave-damning-testimony-trump-sondland-call-democratic-lawmakers-says-n1084071?cid=sm_npd_nn_tw_np
