Formal notice to come as soon as this week after Hill approved
Ukraine requested anti-tank weapons weeks before Trump call


The State Department approved and Congress has informally signed off on a $39 million sale of additional Javelin anti-tank weapons to Ukraine, according to three officials familiar with the decision.

The sale of 150 anti-tank missiles and two additional missile launchers could be announced later on Tuesday, according to one of officials, all of whom asked not to be identified since the decision hasn’t been announced. Ukraine requested the weapons early this past summer. The U.S. sold Ukraine over 200 missiles and 37 launchers in 2018.

It appears Pompeo is threatening his officers if they comply with Congressional inquiries.

BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: I’m told that Pompeo’s office in recent days asked State Department HR/IG if they could “discipline” officers for “failure to follow direction” if they cooperate with Congress.

Wow, that was quick - Warren Responds to Zuckerberg

Elizabeth Warren: What would really “suck” is if we don’t fix a corrupt system that lets giant companies like Facebook engage in illegal anticompetitive practices, stomp on consumer privacy rights, and repeatedly fumble their responsibility to protect our democracy.

Mark Zuckerberg inadvertently endorses Elizabeth Warren.

Whoa, In Leaked Video: @facebook's Mark Zuckerberg calls @ewarren an "existential" threat to his business interests, says he'll "go to the mat" and "fight" her

https://twitter.com/summerbrennan/status/1179014855061323777

In leaked audio posted by The Verge, Zuckerberg — speaking with Facebook employees at company meetings — expressed deep concern that Warren would attempt to break up Facebook should she win the presidency. And were that to happen, Zuckerberg promised legal retaliation.

f she gets elected president, then I would bet that we will have a legal challenge, and I would bet that we will win the legal challenge,” Zuckerberg said. “And does that still suck for us? Yeah. I mean, I don’t want to have a major lawsuit against our own government. I mean, that’s not the position that you want to be in when you’re, you know, I mean … it’s like, we care about our country and want to work with our government and do good things.”

Zuckerberg went on to deem the threat posed by Warren as “existential,” and vowed not to let it go unchallenged.

“[L]ook, at the end of the day, if someone’s going to try to threaten something that existential, you go to the mat and you fight,” he said.

AOC re: McCarthy's 60 mins interview

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

It’s wild to me how people crawled over my 60 mins interview with a fine-toothed comb to find any word or reason to claim I’m unfit for the job, yet here Kevin McCarthy (the GOP Leader!) is a bumbling, sloppy, dishonest mess & his mediocrity is accepted as a matter of course.

The intelligence community's IG gives the president of the United Stares the middle finger.

I’m pretty sure I have never seen the intelligence community’s IG give the president of the United Stares the middle finger.
