"It feels like the seeds of a cover-up are here." -@JoyAnnReid just now on MSNBC.
Wow, and now @MalcolmNance is still doing his Benedict Arnold schtick. #AMJoy
Here's @JoyAnnReid arguing that because Trump "essential controls" DOJ & Barr didn't recuse himself, "it feels like the seeds of a cover-up are here."

It actually feels like those who've peddled a conspiracy theory for 2+ years are peddling a new one to cover up its failure:

😱A NIGHTMARE SCENARIO: The Mueller Investigation is a cover up scam, to sacrifice a few scapegoats to pacify the plebes, defuse a social explosion, to whitewash Trump and the GOP... using as a pretext for secrecy the DOJ rules, executive privilege, and top secret classification.
I KNOW PERFECTLY WELL THIS IS A CONSPIRACY THEORY, and I do not believe it... YET. But that is exactly what people will deduce if justice is denied, Trump & associates get immunity and impunity, or we get anything less than 100% fully & detailed transparency we can believe.
Without full disclosure, the longer it takes, the more obstacles in its way, the less credible it becomes. Anyone who can predict what a cover up of this magnitude will do to America, let me know! Trump is clearly guilty & absent being proven innocent beyond a shadow of a doubt.

Thank you @JoyAnnReid for giving us facts and perspectives that we don't see on other shows

Only Large Policy Interventions Such As Reparations Can Shrink The Racial Wealth Gap

There were people alive in America who had experienced abduction from Africa – being examined, displayed, traded and enslaved – well into the 20th century.

THREAD: Trump voters (including nose-holders) supportive of/indifferent to kids being separated from parents seeking asylum – allowed by international law – as *punishment* for trying to live should never utter "family values" ever again; Free Speech notwithstanding. #AMJoy
2) Yes, they should approach a port of entry to seek asylum. The Trump administration created dynamics to make such a process unnecessarily untenable. Just think, if death is the only other option no amount of tear gassing or Fox-News-shaming is a deterrent.
3) Follow-the-law-to-the-letter enthusiasts should ask the person in the mirror if (s)he qualifies. I don't advocate law breaking – retorting as such exposes your idiocy. A broken law is a broken law? Rolling stops? Texting-n-driving? Cheating the IRS? Stealing office supplies?

1/Grateful for @JoyAnnReid @MSNBC #amjoy for hosting this important discussion abut bots, trolls and disinfo. Got to lay out some ideas abt what Dems/2020 Presidentials need to do to protect Dem Presidential primary fr outside interference this year. msnbc.com/am-joy/watch/h…
2/And here is the piece I discuss w/@JoyAnnReid which calls for the DNC/State Parties/2020s to work together on a "pledge" to forgo bots, trolls, fake accounts, hacking etc; and to build aggressive disinfo operations like what we had at the @DCCC in 2018. ndn.org/blog/2019/01/p…
3/This cycle DNC/State Parties/other candidates have to hold our 2020s to account for the activities of their supporters, or those promoting their candidacy. We know too much now to allow this kind of stuff to happen again. .

Much of what Dr King had to say was deeply unpopular in his day. Some Gallup surveys had him polling < George Wallace. The postcard King is not King. He was a warrior for the poor and a martyr for racial justice. Here he is Sept 1966 on @60Minutes #MLKDay
And this amazing clip that’s not frequently seen:
But this one seems particularly relevant today — a clip of MLK at the Berlin Wall found by our amazing #amjoy intern Arlyn Soto this weekend. Here’s the segment:

Trump’s decision to fire Comey and other attempts to contain the ongoing Russia investigation led the FBI in May 2017 to launch a counterintelligence investigation into whether Trump was seeking to help Russia and if so, why.
by @gregpmiller #Maddow #AMJoy wapo.st/2Fyrqtt?tid=ss…
Trump has gone to extraordinary lengths to conceal details of his conversations with Putin, including confiscating the notes of his own interpreter and instructing the linguist not to reveal what had transpired with his OWN administration officials
#Maddow
Trump has regularly concealed communications with Putin and even prevented his own high-ranking officials from knowing what he told a main adversary of the US. There's no detailed record of Trump’s face-to-face interactions with Putin at 5 locations over the past 2 years.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER

I wanted to take time today to address an issue related to how Black women continue to be targeted, with increasing intensity, online & how tech & its leaders facilitate it

Also, w/o context, ppl who speak out are being attacked

THREAD 1/

#causeascene
I can admit that I have, until recently, spent a great deal of time, within the safety of the cocoon I created for myself as a Black womAn from GA in the U.S.

I've always known, even as a child, that my well-being was directly tied to white supremacy and racism... 2/
what I wasn't aware of until recently, was how intimately connected my well-being and that of Black women was now being impacted by the decisions of tech leaders

It took this conversation with @digitalsista on the @causeascenePod, to open my eyes 3/

This 👆🏼☝🏼👆🏼is the precursor to revoking human rights and hopes for personhood/equality rights for women and #LGBTQ.

We’ll see legalized discrimination and #talibangelical fascists will play an integral role government, laws, education, etc.

Fox News anchors gush over Kanye West's performance at the WH.

As recently as 2017, Fox News anchors thought having rappers in the WH was an abomination.

The only difference?
The political party (and color) of the president.

Thank you @AprilDRyan for addressing Trump/GOP attack on America Women for what it was/is: Anti-America. I do need to add, it's also a great example of the uselessness, the actual danger to Democracy of reactionary "reporting." 📎 Note: #BeBetterMedia (1)
#MonumentalMediaFail -- references women exercising their American right to petition their government -- a majority government, by the way, that in majority numbers does not respond to them (U.S. citizens) face to face in meetings &/or in town halls W/out noting Trump is ... (2)
a self-confessed sexual assaulter of women under investigation for conspiring W/a foreign adversary, i.e. Putin, to install himself in the Oval Office &, per, a preponderance, of evidence (our eyes & ears) an obstruct of justice installing his protection on the Supreme Court. (3)

Nope!

@BetoORourke did *not* say that.
This is a misquote and we deserve better reporting than this, @CBSNews.
Please retract immediately and stop contributing to ACTUAL fake news.

"I can think of nothing more American than to peacefully stand up, or take a knee, for your rights, anytime, anywhere, or any place" is the actual quote.

JFC, Trump!🙄

American flag's stripes are red and white.
Trump should know this, considering the fit he throws when someone kneels at a football game "disrespecting the flag".

@JoyceWhiteVance:

If you have to resort to "truth isn't truth," particularly as a lawyer you're in a very dark place. You're in a place where you know your client is in a lot of trouble.

(Thread) Did Roger Stone conspire to commit computer fraud?

The Computer Fraud Act makes it illegal to transmit stolen materials with the intention of causing damage.

1/ The latest Mueller indictment alleged that Russian military officials hacked into the DNC (and others) and then transmitted the stolen material with the intent to cause damage to HRC’s candidacy for president.

More info on Mueller's indictments here: russia-investigation-summary.com
2/ Conspiracy to commit computer fraud (18 U.S. Code 1030(b)) has 5 elements:

(1) 2 or more persons
(2) Intentionally
(3) make an agreement
(4) to violate the computer fraud statute, and
(5) commit some overt act in furtherance of the agreement.

Great show as usual with #AMJoy

There are sufficient facts in the public square to prove a large Trump conspiracy to violate federal election laws, a conspiracy to coverup those crimes, obstruct justice & abuse power.

Trump crimes in broad daylight, in the wide-open on 5th Ave
Trump was soliciting private property of US citizens stolen by a foreign enemy in order to obtain a criminal advantage in a US federal election.

This is a violation of numerous criminal statutes including the Federal Election Campaign Act.

Money changing hands is irrelevant
The Federal Election Campaign Act contains a broad prohibition on foreign national activity in connection with elections in the United States.

52 U.S.C. § 30121

11 CFR 110.20

Trump knew it was a crime, that's why Trump and at least 15 others have repeatedly lied for 2 years
