1) If read, by the 3rd paragraph, you find that #TheHill's title leans heavily to the clickbait side of web antics. The controversies of #HRC/#Hussein actually go to the #FBI's handling of the investigation & apps for #FISAWarrants. #Graham's investigations would be a......
2) look into unfinished disclosure of facts that began to be brought forward in docs like the #OIGReport. The #FBI & #DOJ #Corruption would be the starting point & just what that would inevitably lead to is what has again stirred the #DCPanic.…
3) visualizing the #Hussein era #FBI/#DOJ one must understand the #CultureOfCorruption that existed within its hierarchy. You were taught that you were innocent until proven guilty, that honesty & integrity were hallmarks of the #FBI & divs of the #DOJ & in reality that's false!

TODAY: Accountability returns to D.C.

Meet & follow our Defenders of Democracy (tagged), & learn how each, in their capacity as Chairs of critical House committees, will hold Trump & cronies accountable.

No more #CultureOfCorruption without oversight starting today.

1/ Financial Services Cmte. (@FSCDems)

High on @RepMaxineWaters' agenda are Deutschebank loans to Trump & Trump's roll-back of banking regulations.

She also aims to empower the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which the Trump administration has been gutting.
2/ Intelligence Cmte. (No Twitter handle yet)

Under R's, Intel impeded the Russia probe, pushed Deep State conspiracy theories & blocked subpoenas.

But now, @RepAdamSchiff is staffing up Intel for a real investigation of Russia's attack on democracy & Trump campaign complicity.

(1/21) The 2017-18 @HouseGOP had plenty of indictments, #GOPCorruption, and ethical breaches (see my 21-tweet-thread: ). Now meet House GOP freshmen being sworn in on 1/3/19. With their baggage, they'll fit right in.

#CultureOfCorruption #GOPComplicit
(2/21) Ross Spano @RossSpano #FL15
In a clear violation of @FEC campaign finance regs, Spano funded his campaign with large, unreported loans from personal friends. Given the amt & his relatively narrow win margin, it's shocking he is even being seated. (…)
(3/21) Anthony Gonzalez @anthonygonzalez #OH16
In another flouting of @FEC regulations, Gonzalez faced scrutiny for apparently (and illegally) colluding with a supportive Super PAC that was funded solely by - wait for it - Gonzalez's father! (…)

article by @SharonLNYT has a fantastic description of Trump's #CultureOfCorruption: "Trump looks for people who share his disregard for the truth and are willing to parrot him, 'even if it’s a lie, even if they know it’s a lie....'" /1…
Trump isn't looking for people who are competent or ethical, in fact just the opposite: "They must be 'loyal to what he is saying right now,'...or he sees them as 'a traitor.'”

The result: an administration filled with incompetent, unethical cronies. /2
But it's not just Trump's senior team. The #CultureOfCorruption seeps through the whole government.

At Ben Carson's HUD, there is “a premium put on loyalty over expertise.” Leads to incompetence that wastes taxpayer $ and hurts the most vulnerable. /3…

If 67% of the public are clear - we will NOT accept Pence or any other Republican in the presidency once Trump is forced out - Pence will never even try to assume office. Trump's crimes & Putin's hand put the GOP in our WH. The GOP should not go 1 step further toward President
Republicans KNEW before we voted that Putin was using Trump to destabilize our country.

@senatemajldr stopped us from knowing.

Before the end of Nov 2016, McConnell's wife was in Trump's Cabinet ...

What the hell is wrong with us?

It's outrageous

Republican leadership knew before we voted in 2016 that Putin was using Trump to destabilize the US.

Transcript of Republican leadership acknowledging Trump was involved w Russian corruption and that the Republicans planned to keep it a secret.

Within weeks of the Orlando nightclub shooting, Sen. Tom Udall (D-NM) participated in a sit-in at the House to demand votes on gun control legislation, saying, "We owe it to the LGBT community & all families harmed by gun violence to keep terror suspects from obtaining guns."
Since he was first elected to Congress in 1998, Sen. Udall has taken a leadership role on a wide array of environmental issues, receiving a lifetime score of 96% from the League of Conservation Voters.
#DemSenate2020 #DemsWork4USA #DemFuture #ForThePeople
Sen. Udall was one of the original co-sponsors of the Arctic Wilderness Bill, and more recently has worked closely with the Navajo and Pueblo nations in New Mexico to oppose new leasing, drilling and fracking near Chaco Canyon National Park. #DemSenate2020 #DemFuture

GOP leadership on audio tape talking about Russia funding populist politicians to destabilize Europe & then they shift to how Putin could be doing it in the US.

Why didn't @SpeakerRyan @cathymcmorris @GOPLeader @SteveScalise report this to the FBI & us?

Full transcript of Republican leadership acknowledging Trump was involved w Russian corruption and that the Republicans planned to keep it a secret.



Then, Republicans elected Kevin McCarthy as their Leader

Numerous people tell me the same story - they are 100% certain that they heard the actual audio tape of McCarthy & Ryan but none can find a link to the audio or a newspaper article describing the audio being played in public

@realDonaldTrump 1) Oh yeah, only a monster would try to rewrite his father's will when he was sick.
President Trump received at least $413 million in today’s dollars from his father’s real estate empire, much of it through tax dodges dubious tax schemes including instances of outright fraud.
@realDonaldTrump 2) The Times documented 295 streams of revenue that Fred Trump created over five decades to enrich his son. Over time, as Donald Trump careened from one financial disaster to the next, his father found ways to give him substantially more money, records show.
@realDonaldTrump 3) In 1990, according to previously secret depositions, Mr. Trump tried to have his father’s will rewritten in a way that Fred Trump, alarmed and angered, feared could result in his empire’s being used to bail out his son’s failing businesses.

🍑Lucy McBath @LucyWins2018: Mother, Wife, Businesswoman, Activist for Social Justice.

🗣️You might recognize her from the 2016 #Democratic Convention: she represented Mothers of the Movement, a group of women whose African American children have been killed by gun violence.
🍑She intended to run for the #Georgia Legislature, but after the Parkland #Florida shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, she decided her aspirations weren’t high enough. #NeverAgainMSD #BeAVoter
🍑She’s running for Congress in George’s 6th District and could use your help because she’s in a tight race. She’s running against the SAME NRA-backed, A-rated Republican that Jon Ossoff ran against in a runoff election in June 2017. Ossoff should have won back then.

FACT: Republicans in DC are all about enriching lobbyist & special interest friends, big corporations, lowering their own taxes & the richest of the rich. They’re not #ForThePeople

They had a chance. They controlled all 3 branches & what did they do? Gave Trump a tax break

From health care, to taxes, to good-paying jobs, to critical consumer protections ... Trump & Republicans have proven it.

They will stab us in the back.

Ordinary Americans don't have a prayer if the GOP stays in control.

They will gut education, Medicare & Social Security
Trump & the Republican Congress are selling out the American people at every turn. So much for draining the swamp.

A Democratic majority will fight #ForThePeople

Lowering health care costs & prescription drug prices ... clean up the Republican #CultureOfCorruption

Let's vote!

World’s greatest detective here because *45 is selling his supporters data for his fiscal gain to Excelsior.

*45 wants to monetize his supporter database, charging $35 for 1K emails.

He’s exploring text messaging rates...…
The current legislative branch has not stepped in to check *45’s power grab.

We need to #VoteThemOut 11/6 to ensure *45 doesn’t monetize government data or to use #TrumpText for his own financial gain.

Current clients @JudicialWatch @HawleyMO @RepDeSantis #BlackoutBrett
Excelsior is a new marketing firm.

*45’s track record with due diligence is like the #CultureOfCorruption’s record with the popular vote.

Spotty at best.

We need assurances as the public controls are in place to protect people’s private information and enable them to opt out.

As we watch a parade of GOP criminals, remember not all public servants are corrupt.

Amy Kloubucher, Sally Yates, Tim Kaine, Kamala Harris, Gavin Newsom, Liz Warren, Chris Murphy, Joe Biden, Joe Kennedy know what public service is about - us, all of us
The Republican #CultureOfCorruption stretches from CA to NC.

Laura Riddick, a Republican first elected in 1996 & re-elected most recently in 2016, pleads guilty to 6 counts of embezzling from the Wake Co Register of Deeds while she led the office - $926K

The first GOP Tax Scam added $2 trillion to the national debt – sticking our children with the bill for massive tax breaks for Big Pharma, Wall Street and the wealthiest 1 percent.

Today, House Republicans are pushing #TaxScam2: their cynical scheme to make tax breaks for billionaires permanent – handing tens of billions of dollars in tax breaks to the wealthiest 1 percent every year.

While Republicans enrich their wealthy donors, Democrats are fighting FOR THE PEOPLE:
*Lowering your health care costs and prescription drug prices
*Increasing your pay through strong economic growth by rebuilding America
*Cleaning up corruption to make Washington work for you

🤪This rant-fest by Trump on Puerto Rico is cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs even for him!

💥Even the #CultureOfCorruption GOP can't support pretending that nearly 3,000 people died in Hurricane Maria in September 2017...can they? Fox can.

Don't believe Stewart is a corporate shill?

Look at the numbers 👇

@ShireenGhorbani has my vote.


Letter: Shireen Ghorbani cares about Utah problems; Chris Stewart is a corporate shill, via @sltrib…
57.6% from pacs...

Only 3.7% from small donors.
No wonder Stewart voted to take away health insurance.

No wonder he wants to open our public lands to drilling.

No wonder he voted to give the rich a tax break.

No wonder he voted to undo bank regulations.

Stewart has been bought and sold.

#disinformation alert! 🚨

The right's latest talking points are false claims that #Kavanaugh's young children were harassed by Democrats as they were escorted out of the hearing.

This is quickly and easily debunked by a simple Google search. 1/8
A Fox News opinion peice expressed dismay that the 2 young girls were upset by the lack of civility shown to their father.

It doesn't say the children were harassed.

Their mother chose to remove them when Dems addressed the lack of transparency.
2/8 📰
The first result that said the children were harassed was a Reddit post, which contained a screenshot of a tweet. 3/8 #Kavanaugh
