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.

NYC's GOP Board of Elections director blames 'wet ballots' and 'high turnout' for voting issues

The Republican executive director of the New York City Board of Elections claims rain and “wet ballots” caused problems for voters at the polls on Tuesday — but failed to mention the state’s restrictive voting laws and propensity to purge voters.

“When you have higher turnout and you have more paper passing through the system, you’re gonna have some issues,” BOE Executive Director Michael J. Ryan, a Queens County Republican, told NY1 in a video posted to Twitter.

Ryan went on to suggest that the rainy conditions in New York on Election Day may have led to wetness from peoples’ clothes to transfer onto their ballots.

Director Ryan didn’t mention the city’s “perennial problem” of voters going missing from voter rolls — an issue that was raised once again during the state’s September primaries.In 2016, investigations revealed that the NYCBOE illegally purged 200,000 people from its voters rolls. In November 2017, then-New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman settled with the BOE after suing it for the illegal purge.New York is also one of only 13 states that do not offer early voting, instead forcing voters to cast ballots on Election Day in spite of it not being a federal holiday.

Just out of curiosity, why is the exec. Director of NYC Board of Elections a Republican? How is he chosen?

This is what the lines in SW Atlanta looked like today.. Only 3 voting machines!

This makes me sad. I'm happy that so many people are showing up but angry that black people are being put through this never-ending bullcrap.

People try so hard to vote. Republican state officials like Brian Kemp try so hard to stop them.

Ready to wait? Hundreds of voters stand in line for hours this morning at this SW Atlanta polling place. Only three voting machines! What’s going on here? Live report at noon.




I live in a suburban area of NC , it's got to be a lot smaller than this district and we had 6 voting machines at our precinct.



Update: After local Atlanta news crews started showing up they brought in 5 more voting machines!
