It honestly feels like we do not have a fully functioning DOJ right now due to Barr’s corruption & conflicts. That is not how a democracy should function. And it is very sad. https://t.co/18BSOS48HZ

I agree with Nancy Pelosi that the Trump administration is engaged in a “cover up of the cover up,” but I don’t think Attorney General Barr has “gone rogue.” That implies he’s acting on his own and not taking orders. Barr is doing exactly what Trump wants him to do. https://t.co/VQEh8xyEdV

In my study of backlash politics in the U.S., I’m interested not only in the power of actual backlashes but the view, expressed here by David Brooks, that we should not take otherwise reasonable actions because they might set off backlashes. https://t.co/dxvw1nxy8k

#BREAKING: #Lawrence Mayor Dan Rivera gives an update on the a #gas leak in Lawrence, which officials say began at around 3 am. At this point Columbia gas and fire officials do not know exactly where the gas leak started. More to follow. https://t.co/G4vJ4Sk2Z1#gasleak pic.twitter.com/tJ8xCWSqzt

Seeing these images from #Lawrence is really jarring. One year ago, the deadly explosions rocked the community. There are still families and business that are not whole. And now another major gas leak. Stay with #NECN and #NBC10Boston for the latest.

People are awakening to the idea that the GOP has long valued power over democracy.
The modern GOP was born in 1968, when Nixon implemented the Southern Strategy, focused on winning over White-segregationists fleeing the newly race-conscious Democrats.https://t.co/PRxWT2DiGz
