#TBT to this past Tuesday's version of @JeffFlake, who said, "It does no good to have an [FBI] investigation that just gives us more cover, for example. We actually need to find out what we can find out." Will he reappear tomorrow?
"[A] lot of new reporting has now emerged that starkly illustrates just how much about the new allegations was not investigated by the FBI [as a] result of restrictions the White House placed on the probe."

OK, I did this. The best part about this, I realized, is that I have been sober long enough that I was sober during all of the years of this meme. #tbt
There wasn’t a picture to choose from where I was drinking or hungover. And this goes back SEVEN YEARS! That’s wild to me, still, and just makes me so grateful that I found this path to sobriety.
I am, however, still an alcoholic. And have my bipolar disorder to deal with on top of it. Those will always be a part of me. And they’ll make emotionally draining weeks like this tough.

#TBT did you know @SenGillibrand speaks fluent Mandarin and has a Chinese name It’s Lu Tianna! Anyway she always says she had no idea about Dads work with #NXIVM but isn’t it wild she visited the Dalai Lama’s House in India the exact same year he was paid $1mil by them? #MeToo
Her speaking fluent Chinese must’ve been very helpful when she was @HillaryClinton aide (?) assistant (?) who knows.
How do you not know what Daddy is doing when he’s the one that helped you raise so much money? Other people in the family have also spoken out but somehow her denial was suffice? Nah Lu Tianna knew all about #NXIVM maybe that’s the name she used🤷🏼‍♀️…

late to #TBT but wanted to throw abt 12 months back to the inaugural @realDonaldTrump speech to the @UN GA 1) "Rogue regimes represented in this body not only support terrorists but threaten other nations and their own people with the most destructive weapons known to humanity."
2) That "rogue regime" is still represented @UN . is still sanctioned by @UN , Russia and China are still helping that rogue regime violate sanctions, and they STILL have the most destructive weapons known to humanity BUT
3) Am guessing this section in the @POTUS UNGA speech will focus on a currently non-nuclear power, Iran, instead of the rogue-ish of them all - Lil Kim.

should be easy to find the tape of the interview
she liked the real guy's quote so much she recycled the exact language for the guy she made up for her kicker…

#TBT me and my sisters in 1979, the last year before Reagan, when we still regularly enforced antitrust laws, when there were less than one 10th the number of people incarcerated now in the US. Let's turn Reagan's agenda upside down.
Sorry must be clear: the 1/10th number is people in jails and prisons for drug related crimes. The overall number was about 1/4th what it is now, taking population into account.
The point is not sentimentality but that we do not need to accept the status quo in incarceration, antitrust, or hundreds of other areas.

#TBT Last year today, I was leaving a certain company. I was grateful for the opportunity and the experience I gained. I still am.

I came home and the first thing I did was open my text editor and write the title: "I was fired by a Machine"
I closed my laptop and went to celebrate. I had to right away because the very next day, I was to start full time at the company I cofounded. After our techcrunch stunt a few month earlier, Renly had received its first seed funding
I worked on my startup everyday and forgot all about the story until out of the blue, my old recruiter contacted me to see how I was doing. In that conversation, we remembered the old days and laughed about that weird experience...

Speaking of next week's SCOTUS decisions, Trump fanboy Neil Gorsuch's role will likely be pivotal. What was it that Gorsuch found "magnificent" in Trump's first address to Congress? His false statements in support of the #MuslimBan? #Throwback —>

#TBT to July 2016, when we first pointed out on @WillieGeist’s #SundayTODAY that the border crisis Trump wants everyone to believe is happening doesn’t actually exist.

Not even close.
Another #TBT — to February of 2017 — when we explained how a wall won’t even stop drugs from “pouring” across the border, as Trump likes to say.

They’re coming through legal ports of entry — places *surrounded* by walls.
And while Trump is obsessed with migrants coming to the US through our southern border, the largest number of people coming here illegally are flying — from Asia.

BREAKING: A GOP Hill staffer just told me she was instructed today to keep her distance from Devin Nunes, his staff and the GOP House Intel Cmte staff, because it looks like they are targets "of multiple ongoing investigations by Special Counsel Mueller's office/FBI and the DoJ."
In February, GOP Rep Tom Rooney said that the entire Republican staff at the House Intelligence Committee is under investigation by the House Ethics Committee, even including “the woman up front that answers the phone,” for alleged leaks. #TBT #RemoveNunes…
GOP Rep. Devin Nunes is under investigation for violating campaign finance laws. The Federal Election Commission is accusing Nunes of taking more money from individual donors than is allowed under election law. It’s pretty clear he broke the law.…

On three occasions in my short life, I have been mistaken for a commercial sex worker.

Back then I had almost no interaction with prostitutes and no respect for them. That has changed - story for another day.

Back to my tale of #WhatDoIDoForALiving
Hang on tight. Let's go dia!
The first time, I was standing on curb of a major road in Enugu, waiting a bus or cab. I'd only been there for a few minutes, when a Volvo sedan came trundling.

I flagged it down and the driver slowed to a stop. I was quite pleased to find the car unoccupied.
This meant that I got the choice of seats; I gleefully chose the front passenger seat.

That evening, my slender frame was dressed in a yellow Lycra blouse and a knee-length, black, pencil skirt; two of the presentable pieces from my meagre wardrobe.

Yup, that's #tbt me 👇🏾

Gather around’s time for some very TRUE short stories morphed into a unbelievably one in the end.
I’ve grown up in a very mixed family and being a proud biracial kid.
But, let’s rewind to a lifetime ago where I wasn’t comfortable or was constantly questioned about “what are you”...
Just like any character in their story. I’ve had my own twist and turns in my life.

However, my experiences that always stood out always seem to involve my family.

Finished reading through superseding Mueller Indictment on Manafort and Gates. Here’s my take: #theRESISTance #TrumpRussia
This one paragraph is a culmination of #TrumpRussia starting with Manafort’s allegiance to Russia #ElectionHacking for Yanukovych; the irony that Ukraine had an “Orange Revolution” and Manafort renting property in Trump Tower for years. Roger Stone where you at?
More on Manafort’s experience in #ElectionHacking and capabilities that together paint a picture Tony Soprano couldn’t paint:

THREAD: Today we learned that the FBI is investigating connections between the NRA, Russia, and the Trump campaign. For folks paying attention, it’s been clear since 2016 that something was a bit off.

In honor of #tbt, let’s take a look back:
In August of 2016, Trump’s rhetoric & behavior caused reliable GOP donors to abandon his campaign, but the NRA *increased* their investment, dropping $3 million on a pro-Trump ad buy.
In fact, the NRA spent more on Trump’s 2016 campaign than Trump’s own super PACs. It was the most the NRA has ever spent in an election cycle.
