“This was a coup,” Trump told host Sean Hannity on Fox News’ “Hannity” in his first interview since the Mueller report's release. “This was an attempted overthrow of the United States government.”https://t.co/PcDUiq2igt

You know how people speculate that Fox News will help Trump escape for the #MuellerReport?
Glad to see at least someone there going with the facts.

Considering how relentlessly Fox fans the flames of lies, paranoia and conspiracy, you'd think Elie position wouldn't be controversial. Dems should not appear on Fox!
I don't care how desperate they are to reach the mythical racist-Trump-voter-with-a-heart-of-gold. Democratic Presidential candidates need to STOP appearing on white supremacist media like Fox News. https://t.co/xHrwnvHlhz

“Executives are very worried Fox & Friends will be next. If advertisers start bailing on them, they're screwed,” an insider said.
And they should be. This isn’t about Trump. No advertiser wants to be associated with racism and bigotry. https://t.co/WQXvxjzCem

For years, Trump insisted it was impossible to find Americans to fill seasonal jobs at his hotels, leaving him no choice but to hire foreign guest workers instead. New docs show dozens of Americans applied but Trump hired foreign workers instead.https://t.co/9vTdMHxrpW

Let’s all drink a toast to the new king of lies,
and the minions who help him while democracy dies,
and our kids who’ll be taught that the wicked are wise
because Potus was Jack from ‘Lord of The Flies’.

“It’s ironic that Graham says homosexuality should not be ‘politicized’ when he and other conservative Christians have gone out of their way to make LGBTQ rights a wedge issue.”
Typical evangelical—your desire to have rights is “politics”; my opposition to that is “God’s will.” https://t.co/JD2Iv6Uqec

Fascinating history from @DavidCornDC on Biden's efforts to thwart Bush's invasion of Iraq. But in the end, the bottom line seems worse for Biden than Kerry/Clinton: He voted to authorize war *despite knowing* there was virtually no evidence of WMD threat https://t.co/nEfoTJvh3e pic.twitter.com/sguDIvtaJg

The Mueller report doesn't cover the counterintelligence investigation: did Russia try to infiltrate the Trump camp? But a new filing in another case shows Moscow had a broad scheme to obtain influence within US political circles.

The GOP will be defending 22 senate seats in 2020. If democrats take 4 of them we control the Senate. Now is the time for every Democrat to pick your favorite seat to flip and do something to help. Volunteer, donate, make calls, tell your friends, just start helping.
