"If you don't like me working with President Trump to make the world a better place, I don't give a shit."
Lindsey Graham has done gone lost his mind. History will not be kind to him.
"I have argued to you that when you found that a judge was a perjurer, you couldn’t in good conscience send him back in a courtroom because everybody that came in that courtroom thereafter would have a real serious doubt."

Covertly concentrating groups of children in remote desert camps at night? Nothing about the child detention crisis is over or resolved.
Irreparable damage has been done to immigrant children at the hands of our government. It's been 66 days since the Trump admin failed to adhere to a court's deadline to reunite children and parents. Many of these kids/parents will NEVER be reunited.

Brett Kavanaugh's opening statement makes him seem overtly political. Not a good look for a Judge hoping to be a Supreme Court Justice. #KavanaughHearings
HOLY SHIT!!! Did Brett Kavanaugh really just say this is a political hit by the Clintons?!! Really?! The GOP playbook is so predictable, and getting old, when in doubt blame the email lady. #KavanaughHearings

Trump: "If we brought George Washington here...the Democrats would vote against him...and he may have had a bad past, who knows."
This guy is an idiot.
"George Washington would be voted against 100 percent by Schumer and the con men."

BREAKING: Rod Rosenstein, who had been overseeing Russia probe, has offered to resign. wapo.st/2zqRnaK
There are conflicting reports.
BREAKING: Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein denies a NYT report that he suggested last year he secretly record Trump to expose chaos in the administration. According to the Times Rosenstein also floated the idea of trying to remove Trump through the 25th Amendment. apnews.com/e84a4acdb42641…
Rod Rosenstein should know better than to joke about something like the 25th Amendment. Especially in the era of Trump.
So Dr Ford is "confused" and "mixed up" about what happened 35 years ago but Brett Kavanaugh's memory of the same incident from 35 years ago is perfect and crystal clear?
When men, decades later, report abuse by priests they are believed, increasingly there are state investigations despite the statute of limitations having lapsed decades before they go public.
Whereas, Women who come forward decades later are "confused" or "lying."

17 years ago, today, Donald Trump felt the need to remind America and NY that his building, 40 Wall Street, was now the tallest in downtown Manhattan since the Twin Towers had collapsed. He hasn't changed a bit.
There is a Trump #TweetForEverything
Wow, this interaction says all you need to know abt Brett Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh is so embroiled in toxic GOP politics that as a nominee for the Supreme Court Judge Kavanaugh is unwilling to even shake the hand of the father of a victim of gun violence, regardless of his politics.
Trump 2018: "I will be doing a major rally for Senator Ted Cruz in October. I’m picking the biggest stadium in Texas we can find. As you know, Ted has my complete and total Endorsement."
They deserve each other.
2016 Ted Cruz on Trump: "This man is a pathological liar. He lies practically every word that comes out of his mouth, in a pattern that I think is straight out of a psychology text book. His response is to accuse everybody else of lying. The man cannot tell the truth, but he..."

The SDNY has provided ample evidence that Trump was involved in deals to pay two women to keep them from speaking publicly about affairs before the 2016 in violation of campaign finance laws. But it turns out that Trump wanted to go even further. nytimes.com/2018/08/30/nyr…
He and his lawyer at the time, Michael Cohen, devised a plan to buy up all the dirt on Trump that the National Enquirer and its parent company had collected on him, dating back to the 1980s, according to several of Trump’s associates.

Farewell Statement From Sen McCain:
"My fellow Americans, whom I have gratefully served for 60 years, and especially my fellow Arizonians.
Thank you for the privilege of serving you and for the rewarding life that service in uniform and in public office has allowed me to lead.
I've tried to serve our country honorably. I’ve made mistakes, but I hope my love for America will be weighed favorably against them.
I've often observed that I am the luckiest person on earth. I feel that way even now as I prepare for the end of my life.

Sen. John McCain last speach on the floor of the US Senate on July 25, 2017.
“I’ve stood in this place many times and addressed as president many presiding officers. I have been so addressed when I have sat in that chair, as close as I will ever be to a presidency."
“It is an honorific we’re almost indifferent to, isn’t it. In truth, presiding over the Senate can be a nuisance, a bit of a ceremonial bore, and it is usually relegated to the more junior members of the majority."

BREAKING: Federal prosecutors have reportedly granted immunity to David Pecker, CEO of American Media, Inc., as part of the investigation into Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen. Pecker has flipped on Trump! thebea.st/2wiRCC3
Pecker is the publisher of the National Enquirer, that bought a story from former Playboy model Karen McDougal as part of an apparent “catch and kill” effort. The tabloid bought the rights to McDougal’s claims of an affair with Trump for $150000, in a deal brokered by Cohen.
