Marc Elias is awesome


We did not misconstrue anything. The GOP has been trying to disenfranchise voters and prevent lawful ballots from being counted. We have filed to intervene to protect those voters and ensure a fair count. Once that is done, @kyrstensinema will be declared the winner.

Senator, I think you have lost your mind. Delete your account.

Now democrat lawyers are descending on #Florida. They have been very clear they aren’t here to make sure every vote is counted.

- They are here to change the results of election; &
- #Broward is where they plan to do it.

WH has suspended Acosta's press credentials


The White House has suspended @Acosta’s hard pass which means he needs permission/an escort every time he goes to the WH.

Don Jr thinks he going to be indicted this week according to Vanity Fair


by Gabriel Sherman

Trump’s move against Sessions today arrives at a moment when Trump allies are increasingly concerned about Donald Trump Jr.’s legal exposure. In recent days, according to three sources, Don Jr. has been telling friends he is worried about being indicted as early as this week. One person close to Don Jr. speculated that Mueller could indict him for making false statements to Congress and the F.B.I. about whether he had told his father about the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Russians to gather “dirt” on Hillary Clinton. This source had heard that the case could revolve around Trump’s former deputy campaign chairman, Rick Gates, who’s cooperating with Mueller and who was deeply involved in the campaign at the time of the meeting. Trump, this person continued, is “very upset” about the risks Don Jr. faces. “The president is very depressed,” this person said. (“Don never said any such thing, and there is absolutely no truth to these rumors,” said Don Jr.’s lawyer, Alan Futerfas.)


PressSec said the white supremacist guy at the WH today was there for Fall Garden Tour

You can't make this crap up.


I asked @PressSec why Casey, head of an alt right group, was at the WH.

Her response: "He was one of more than twenty-five thousand people who came to the White House Fall Garden Tour, which is open to the public. Free tickets are made available to anyone who wants to attend."


Identity Evropa is a white supremacist group that popularized "you will not replace us" chant; Casey is its leader. We demand the White House answer why he was there. The White House should be #NoPlaceForHate. For more info, read: https://www.adl.org/resources/profiles/identity-evropa

Trump is likely to pick Kobach - WH political operative


I asked a political operative with the White House's ear if Kobach for AG is likely. His response: "Yes

Napolitano says Trump violated the law by appointing Matt Whitaker as acting attorney ge

However, Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano explained to Fox News host Dana Perino how Trump could be breaking the law with his new appointee.

Napolitano explained that Whitaker was not confirmed by the Senate and therefore violates the law.

“Under the law, the person running the Department of Justice must have been approved by the United States Senate for some previous position. Even on an interim post,” Napolitano said.

Napolitano continued saying that next in line for the position is Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

“[Whitaker] was not confirmed by the United States Senate for a leadership position at the Justice Department. The White House will have to work this out. Who has been confirmed and who’s next in line? Deputy attorney general Rosenstein,” he said.


Ron Wyden speaks truth to power


People know a cheat when they see one

"People don't understand tax returns," Trump says when asked why he might not want to release his tax returns.

One of the R Congressmen Trump called out today for not supporting him responds


To deal w harassment & filth spewed at GOP MOC’s in tough seats every day for 2 yrs, bc of POTUS; to bite ur lip more times you’d care to; to disagree & separate from POTUS on principle & civility in ur campaign; to lose bc of POTUS & have him piss on u. Angers me to my core.

Democrats planning to call Mueller for nationally televised hearings if he's removed from the Russia

House Democrats say they’re also ready to act as a backstop if Trump follows through on more than 18 months of pent-up angst and fires Mueller or tries to meddle with the special counsel’s work through a major shakeup atop the Justice Department.

Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi has already pledged to make sure Mueller’s “documentation is preserved” and the likely next House speaker also holds in her back pocket the threat of launching impeachment hearings against Trump if the president tries to oust Mueller or if the special counsel’s investigators ultimately uncover a smoking gun involving criminal behavior.

Democrats are even prepping a break-glass scenario in case there’s a Nixon-era Saturday Night Massacre where Trump fires his current DOJ leadership and tries to shutter the Mueller probe in the process. If that happens, senior Democratic officials say Mueller would likely get an immediate summons to Capitol Hill for nationally-televised testimony about his findings.
