.@PeteButtigieg on Sanders and Bloomberg: "We shouldn’t have to choose between one candidate who wants to burn this party down and another candidate who wants to buy this party out."
Also Pete: how about we actually elect a Democrat?
They all came with the soundbites locked and loaded tonight.
NEW: John Rood—the Pentagon's top policy official who raised concern about withholding $250M in security assistance just hours after Trump's July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky—has reportedly been asked for his resignation.
Well, he definitely learned his lesson from the GOP’s sham trial.
Lesson: do whatever the hell you want
@AngrierWHStaff If you say ridiculous/baseless things (with that haughty sense of superiority establishment types seem to carry) don’t be surprised if you get ratio’d to oblivion.
But don’t worry - you have destroyed any remaining credibility with this tweet - so I for one am unfollowing.
This isn’t an airport, you don’t have to announce your departure.
If asking for transparency is destroying credibility, call me implausible!
“Fuentes was allegedly recruited by a Russian contact to record details about a U.S. government source's vehicle in Florida, including its license plate number. The Russian agent allegedly instructed Cabrera Fuentes to meet him in Russia in April or May with the information.”
I will never understand why Bernie gets momentum and immediately shoots himself in the foot.
I fear by allowing Trump to degrade so many norms, we are setting the stage for people in both parties to continue to do the same. Medical records—like tax returns—shouldn’t be optional
Until I see a resignation letter, I’m 100% convinced this is a ruse.
Barr is the most powerful man in America right now. He would be an idiot to resign and Trump would be an idiot to let him.
I hope he proves me wrong tonight, though.
Barr has told people close to Trump that he is considering quitting over the president’s tweets, officials say
That would make for an interesting turn of events, but we’ll see — Trump is going to have a hard time getting a bigger sycophant than Barr confirmed.
