On July 1, Senators Kirsten #Gillibrand, Senator Chuck #Grassley & Senator Ted #Cruz announced they will offer the bipartisan #Military Justice Improvement Act as an amendment to this year’s National #Defense Authorization Act. gillibrand.senate.gov/news/press/rel… #NDAA #MJIA #PassMJIA
From Senator Gillibrand's press release: "The Military #Justice Improvement Act would professionalize how the #military prosecutes serious crimes by moving the decision over whether to prosecute them to independent, trained, professional military prosecutors." #MJIA #PassMJIA
"Despite years of Congressional reforms, thousands of service members are raped & sexually assaulted every year. In many of those cases, the assailant is someone in the survivor’s own chain of command." -- #military #MST #MilitarySexualTrauma #MJIA #PassMJIA

In data from @FiveThirtyEight and GDELT tracking, #Biden is leading TV mentions. This is pushing down poll numbers for other candidates.

Biden - 4,317
Sanders - 461
Warren - 1,090
Harris - 146
Buttigieg - 88
O'Rourke - 118
Booker - 142
Klobuchar - 47
Yang - 41
Castro - 21
These numbers should embarrass the MSM. #Harris is polling 4th yet she has less than 2% of #Biden's mentions, only 10% of #Warren's. #Buttigieg is polling right behind Harris and he has only half her mentions. Yet #Booker is almost equal to Harris. While #Castro--almost nothing.
The week showed a big drop in mentions for #Harris and #Sanders, despite high profile appearances for both on major TV shows. The disconnect is striking, particularly since both have rolled out new policy and important changes in their campaigns.

This is your official #DemDebate2 night thread. I am just getting settled here, drinking water only because my liver is still recovering from last night, and I turn on CNN and this dude is preaching to the audience about RAAAAACCCISM! I think he's the head of the DNC. #Hectic
I can already tell I'm going to have to risk gastro upset and head for the liquor cabinet. This is going to be a disaster. #PJMDrunkBlog #DemDebate2
@CNN thinks #KristenG thinks she's being beat up on because she called for #Franken to resign. I think she's a loser because she's connected up to her ears with #NXVIM #DemDebate2 #ChildTrafficking #PJMDrunkBlog

Critically important here is that #Biden demanded an apology from #Booker and his wife said on a TV special orchestrated by Biden that "America didn't buy it" about #Harris saying exactly this. Biden's team called Harris "slippery and slick." "Jungle" is such a dog whistle, too.
Why on Earth would you want to promote a candidate with questionable history on race when that is a key issue with Trump? No one is claiming #Biden = Trump, but anyone can hear the debate question right now. And this gives cover for racist white voters.
Biden has consistently asserted "everyone" knows he was in the forefront on Civil Rights, but in fact, no one knows that. There are numerous videos of Biden saying things most would consider questionable at best. Democrats need the strongest candidate, not the most vulnerable.

What a total reframing of what actually happened to try to damage @KamalaHarris.
#Biden raised the issue of segregation.
#Booker---WHO IS BLACK---asked for an apology.
Biden doubled down and claimed Booker should apologize to him.

This went on over a week before the debate as #Biden's history was revealed by journalists like me.
In the debates Biden lost badly to #Harris when he couldn't address his own record.
Biden's numbers plummeted, Harris's rose.
Then Biden went on CNN to attack Harris.
2/
Chris Cuomo gave #Biden TWO WHOLE SHOWS to attack #Harris with no pushback. Biden claimed he was "blindsided" by Harris, who commented on the issue Biden raised 10days earlier.
Biden revealed all his terrible policy ideas he never talks about & also attacked progressive WOC.

#Warren, #Harris and #Castro had previously called for #impeachment weeks ago.

More Democrats Are Calling For Impeachment After #Mueller Said He Could Not Clear Trump buzzfeednews.com/article/paulmc…
A week ago both #Beto and #Buttigieg had joined the impeachment calls.Today #Booker, #Gillibrand and others added their voices for impeachment and #Sanders said he would support whatever Pelosi chooses to do, but said it seems time to examine the issue.
The outlier among the frontrunners is #Biden, who took a wait-and-see attitude. In his
statement, #Mueller declaratively punted the ball to Congress.

So per @NBCNews, these are the latest fundraising rankings.
These are significant because #Warren is after #Sanders and #Harris in the polls where they rank 1st and 2nd (not counting Biden since he's not in) but her fundraising is below #Booker.
As these money rankings stay, Warren is in trouble for the debates like Castro and Gillibrand are because of the rules on how fundraising numbers = viability. Not making the debates would be terrible since #Warren & #Gillibrand are the most progressive & #Castro the only Latinx.
Also, these daily totals are averaged, but they aren't representative as a metric because all these candidates entered at different times & Sanders never stopped fundraising from 2016.
The question is, how much is no big donors hurting #Harris & #Warren?
