Joe Biden @JoeBiden 10h

On Holocaust Remembrance Day, let us pause and reflect on the millions of Jews who lost their lives at the hands of the Nazi regime.

The events of the last few months remind us that it’s not enough to just say never again—we must speak up and act against hate.

Kamala Harris @KamalaHarris 17h

This Holocaust Remembrance Day, we honor the memory of the six million Jews murdered in the Holocaust. We must renew our commitment to the promise of “never again” and fight against hate and anti-Semitism every time we see it.

‘Eater of souls’: CNN guest explains how Trump corrupts everyone around him

Brad Reed BRAD REED
03 MAY 2019 AT 07:42 ET

New Yorker reporter Susan Glasser on Friday told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota that President Donald Trump has an unnerving power to make everyone around him sacrifice their dignity and integrity just to remain in his good graces.

During a panel discussion, Camerota quoted from Glasser’s latest piece in the New Yorker that described the way that formerly respectable public officials have transformed themselves into mindless sycophants for the president.

“Getting inside this president’s good graces appears to require an extra helping of public obsequiousness, groveling, flip-floppery, and over-the-top televised pronouncements,” Camerota said, quoting from Glasser. “This unseemly aspect of the Trump era was on full display at Wednesday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, where both… Lindsey Graham and Attorney General Bill Barr went out of their way to appeal to the president at the expense of their own credibility.”

Glasser responded that much of what she had observed this week echoed similar observations made by former FBI Director James Comey in a scathing op-ed about the ways Trump corrupts people.

“He called Donald Trump an ‘eater of souls,'” she said of Comey’s op-ed. “That’s a very dramatic rendering of it, but I think gets at this psychological fact of this Trump White House… why stake your credibility of this president so challenged with the truth?”

Dear god, I’d never seen this statistic.

“the global Jewish population in 2019 (~15 million) is still lower than it was in 1939 (16.6 million). So many Jews were murdered that we still haven't recovered demographically after 80 years.”

Ex-Watergate prosecutor destroys Trump’s arguments for blocking Don McGahn’s testimony: ‘He just makes things up’


President Donald Trump said this week that he does not want former White House counsel Don McGahn to testify before Congress — and a former Watergate prosecutor told CNN’s John Berman Friday that the president has no power to stop McGahn’s testimony.

Appearing on CNN, attorney David Dorsen told Berman that it would be ridiculous for Trump to assert executive privilege over McGahn’s testimony after he previously waived that privilege to have him cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

“President Trump just makes things up,” he said. “We had total access to everything in Watergate. The idea that what is going on now is unprecedented is just false.”

He also said that he doubted McGahn would actually resist a Congressional subpoena like Trump wants because “he’s going to have to testify or go to jail.”

He then finished up by saying Trump seems to completely lack an understanding about the actual powers he’s been given under the United States Constitution.

“President Trump says, ‘I won’t let him testify’ — it’s not for President Trump to decide whether he will let a witness testify, now a private citizen, before a house of Congress,” he said. “They are equal branches of the government and they could subpoena him and have him testify without the permission of the president… I just think the president has an exaggerated view of his status and powers.”

Barr: DOJ can’t indict a sitting President.
The Constitution: A President who commits high crimes & misdemeanors can be held accountable by Congress.
Trump: Congress can’t have access to the key witnesses against me.


Axios @axios 39m

Trump says in an interview with Fox News that Don McGahn and other former administration officials should not testify before Congress:

"They've testified for many hours, all of them. I would say, it's done ... they shouldn't be looking anymore."

There's just no way to look at Iran-Contra, or Bush's secret prisons, torture chambers, and warrantless spying, and conclude Bill Barr's lawlessness is a product of Trump's influence rather than the ideological convictions of Republican institutionalists.

Ex-Trump staffer shreds Bill Barr — and compares his Mueller report ‘spin campaign’ to ‘jury tampering’


J.W. Verret, a former member of President Donald Trump’s transition team, told CNN’s Jim Sciutto on Friday that Attorney General Bill Barr had been caught red-handed spinning special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 election — and he thinks the attorney general’s powers to shield Trump from damaging revelations are quickly eroding.

Appearing on CNN, Verret said that one reason more Republicans haven’t spoken out about their objections to Trump’s behavior is that Barr effectively managed the release of the Mueller report to make it sound as beneficial to Trump as possible.

“I really think what the attorney general did with the initial summary was effectively a form of jury tampering where the prosecutor goes out, gives a press conference with misleading information,” he said, before adding that it seemed the Mueller appeared to have been “hamstrung” and “frustrated” about it.

However, he predicted that the White House’s ability to keep up this charade would soon fall apart.

“I think the president and attorney general’s spin campaign about the Mueller report was initially successful,” he said. “And I think that that success will fade over time with the repeated drum beat of public hearings… the first penny to flip here will be the House subpoenas for the president’s financial records through Deutsche Bank. I don’t think he can stop Deutsche Bank.”

Ralph Nader: Trump Is the Most Impeachable President in American History


As the laws start catching up with Trump, he will resort to raucous mass rallies where he will warn of violence in the streets, as he did during his campaign in 2016 when discussing his potential loss. He will start military actions, which explains why he had to pressure former generals, Mattis and Kelly, to resign from the Department of Defense and White House. Trump doesn’t like generals who advocate restraint.

Trump himself has said that he will be secure so long as the police and military are with him. Get ready for a fast-approaching major constitutional crisis with Congress and adherents of the rule of law.

Our lying, lawless President is about to face the laws of the land, backed by our Constitution. It is time for Republicans to start looking at themselves in the mirror of history. And it is time for all Americans to challenge their elected officials to stand tall and uphold the rule of law.

Safeguarding our democracy requires nothing less. For more information on impeachment, listen to my interview with scholar Alan Hirsch, author of Impeaching the President: Past Present and Future

Trump has told Putin more about the Mueller Report than he’s told Congress or the American people.

I don’t care what political party you belong to- we should all be able to agree that this isn’t remotely ok.

Trump hired undocumented workers for winery he falsely plugged as ‘largest’ after neo-Nazi rally


At least seven undocumented immigrants say they worked for the Trump Winery in Charlottesville, Virginia – the one President Donald Trump plugged, falsely claiming during his infamous 2017 “both sides” defense of neo-Nazis was “one of the largest wineries in the United States.”

“I’ve been here for six or five years,” one of the workers, who claims he was hired after presenting false documents that were not verified, told Univision News. “They’ve never asked me for anything, otherwise I wouldn’t be here.”

A black woman who didn’t realize she was ineligible to vote, got 5 years in prison for illegally voting. Meanwhile, a white man can knowingly mislead our entire country and keep his job as Attorney General.

If you ever wondered what rich white male privilege is, this is it.
