1) I listened to @AllInWithChris podcast earlier featuring the Tues 14 May 2019 episode of the show. @ChrisLHayes, @MIchelleinBklyn & @MatthewAMiller discussed what the US Attorney General & FBI should(n't) do among other topics. #Inners
2) Repeatedly stated was the FBI doesn't investigate political enemies of the POTUS, a caveat to which I'd like you 3 to consider. J Edgar Hoover was neither POTUS nor AG; he was FBI director while repeatedly using his post to disparage MLK Jr. On 19 Nov 1964, Hoover penned a...
3) ...letter to a colleague in which he hoped for King's murder. Hoover intentionally mischaracterized King, calling him a liar, something inducing apoplexy if hurled at white men...calling for proving what's in folks hearts & carrying on. While not necessarily a...

BREAKING: NYT reporting that they have obtained 10 years of Trump's tax info from 1985 to 1994 and that it doesn't look too good..note: these are NOT the years involving Trump Tower Moscow, so I wonder where these came from? #TuesdayThoughts…
2-Most importantly: "Over all, Mr. Trump lost so much money that he was able to avoid paying income taxes for eight of the 10 years. It is not known whether the I.R.S. later required changes after audits."
3-David K Johnston, who has seen some of Trump's 2005 tax p/w bc of a lawsuit, just said, "The NYT is the Wizard (OZ) who has just pulled back the curtain and revealed Donald Trump the con-man" #TrumpsTaxes #TuesdayThoughts

EXCLUSIVE: Emails show Trump admin had "no way to link" separated migrant kids to parents.

Top ICE official: "What you are requesting is not something that we are going to be able to complete in a rapid fashion."

More with @chrislhayes at 8ET. #inners…
@chrislhayes The *exact same day* the Trump administration was assuring the American public there was a "central database" that would be used to reunite thousands of migrant families, emails between officials show they only had data on 60. #inners

Read the emails:…
@chrislhayes In recent interviews, Trump's acting DHS Secretary, @DHSMcAleenan, has said families "were always intended to be reunited."

But these e-mails between Trump's current acting ICE director and HHS sure look *nothing* like that. #inners

💥AG Barr's letter to Congress: "Robert Mueller has concluded his investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election and related matters…I may be in a position to advise of the Special Counsel’s principal conclusions as soon as this weekend” via @etuckerAP #MuellerReport
The #MuellerReport was skewed in Trump's favor from the start b/c Mueller can't indict Trump & he can't disclose non-indictable wrongdoing. Congress has taken up that broader universe of fact-finding. Notably, Trump hasn't provided a single document. Many investigations continue.
As I said from Mueller's 1st days, focusing solely on criminal conduct misses a whole host of unprecedented wrongdoing we don't even have vocabulary for let alone laws against. Trump campaign's conduct w/ Russia may not be indictable, but is wrong & threatens national security.

"It's his style. How he talks. Counterpuncher. It's refreshing. Authentic. He resonates w/ ppl." What a load of horsesh*t Republicans have to trot out to rationalize an abusive horse's ass POTUS from hell, spending his time watching TV, trolling the dead, endangering the living,
Trump sure keeps the propaganda machine busy. Get ready for more pathetic Republican BS on TV tonight in defense of indefensible Trump, who just now AGAIN disparaged John McCain & complained that he gave him the funeral he wanted, but never got a thank you
Trump's twitter is so full of lies, yet today he had the nerve to say he uses it for "honesty." Like a rotten onion, you keep peeling only to find more odious rot behind each layer. At some point you have to realize it's rotten to the core. #inners #maddow

Here’s the transcript of @chrislhayes asking @SenSanders to define *socialism* on @allinwithchris #inners

Hayes: I wanna ask you about #socialism. There’s an email that just went out in the last few days from the Trump campaign, which, of course, is already up & running.
Hayes:...”It’s a fundraising email. It says, ‘@SenSanders announced he will be running for president with a very simple platform: FULL-BLOWN SOCIALISM—not partial socialism—full blown socialism. You’ve called yourself a socialist for years. It’s been a question, interestingly...
Hayes: ...on the campaign trail. Other candidates have said they’re not socialists—they’re capitalists— but there’s this debate that has ensued about, “what does that mean?” A lot of Conservatives have pointed to Venezuela and said, “food shortages, increasing authoritarianism...

Late in El Paso but wanted to share few things I brought up on @chrislhayes' special.

Trump's idea of an emergency is a completely foreign idea here.

People of El Paso *are* people of Juarez.

100K go between the cities daily for work and school -- saw it live tonight. #inners
To understand why we're here, understand one word: deterrence.

It's been bipartisan US border policy for decades, starting with Clinton.

Doesn't work.

Yes, crossings dropped, but deaths increased as migrants took more dangerous journeys here.

Trump wants more of it. #inners
Our only border "crisis" is a *humanitarian* one of large groups of asylum seekers crossing in deadly, remote areas.


If Trump actually wanted to know, he'd put resources towards processing them legally, not into metering, nor DoD and CBP shows-of-force. #inners

THREAD: @MayaWiley, I appreciate your comments last night on #Inners with @ChrisLHayes et. al. about possible down-the-road consequences of medical students' racist acts – such as Northam's blackface ordeal – in developing healthcare management plans for African American patient.
2) The narrative around "oh they were just kids" is dangerous. Those "kids" go on to become adults with immense decision making power & social capital, yet their biases in how they create/navigate the healthcare sector does not undergo such evolution. How do I know?
3) The health outcomes of people parodied by the likes of Northam via racist acts are the same people consistently experiencing adverse health outcomes – the reality of which are not solely based on *poor choices* but also various forms of hostility faced in the healthcare sector

Some of the news in today's #TrumpRussia avalanche:
-Mueller investigation close to completion—Whitaker
-Cohen to testify to House Feb 8, w/ new legal team
-Manafort sentencing hearing delayed
-Trump doesn't rule out pardon for Roger Stone
-Barr discussed Mueller probe w/ Pence
Watch #Whitaker sweat up a storm announcing he’s been “fully briefed” on Mueller investigation & “thinks” it’s “close to being completed.” Seems very anxious to get his hands on it to “review.” And Wray? They look like my kids up to no good. #maddow #inners
It's alarming Whitaker's even commenting on the Mueller investigation/report. Is he pressing or hoping for no more indictments? The "review decisions" remark is very alarming. Is he saying someone's reviewing HIS decisions? Or that he's (already?) reviewing Mueller's decisions??

>> BOOM >> Mueller has evidence Manafort shared polling data about the 2016 presidential election with Russian intel asset Kilimnik. And lied about it. His lawyers bungled redactions in filing and here we are. #TrumpRussia #Conspiracy #Collusion #RussiaGate #MuellerInvestigation
My favorite part so far (paraphrasing): OK, so Manafort shared [presidential polling data] with Kilimnik. But why assume he lied when he failed to tell Mueller? He just forgot! He was so busy! After all, he was running a US presidential campaign. He can't remember EVerything. lol
Not only is NO COLLUSION a big lie. There’s so damn much collusion, it’s more like TREASON. We learned today 1) Manafort met Russian agent Kilimnik in Madrid during campaign, 2) Paulie shared polling data w/ him, & 3) They discussed “Ukrainian peace plan.” While Russia attacked.

BREAKING: The Michael Flynn Sentencing Memo has just been released. It's only 13 pages and much of it – the good stuff – has been redacted.
#Maddow #inners
Mueller's office re Flynn: "Given the defendant's SUBSTANTIAL ASSISTANCE ...a sentence at the low end of the guideline range—including a sentence that does not impose a term of incarceration—is appropriate and warranted."
Flynn Sentencing Memo: Flynn provided firsthand info re the content & context of interactions between the TRUMP TRANSITION TEAM and Russian government officials – including about the DEC 2016 UN Security Council vote criticizing Israel.

By raging he's being framed by a Clinton revenge plot conspiracy, Kavanaugh echoed Trump propagandists discrediting Mueller & Russia probe. That in itself is disqualifying from sitting on the Supreme Court. It also proves he won't be an impartial arbiter on those & other matters.
Forget the alleged sexual assault & lies for a moment. Kavanaugh's partisan rant about a left-wing smear conspiracy is so off-the-rails improper for someone whose job is literally to DISPASSIONATELY & fairly interpret facts & law before him. And he wants a promotion to SCOTUS??
Maybe #Kavanaugh's not a conspiracy theorist. But he is consciously echoing Trump. He altered strategy from choir-boy Fox interview b/c Trump didn't like it. Kav's already bending to the executive who named him, like the political operative he is at heart. And will be on SCOTUS.

Whoa: Someone inside Trump Admin wrote an anonymous op-ed saying insiders are thwarting him: “I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration. We work for the president but we have vowed to thwart parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations”…
Senior Trump official: "Our duty is to this country, and the president continues to act in a manner that is detrimental to the health of our republic. [We] vowed to do what we can to preserve our democratic institutions…[He's] amoral, impetuous, adversarial, petty, ineffective."
Exasperated Trump admin officials admit their daily disbelief at Trump’s comments and actions. “Most are working to insulate their operations from his whims.” This @nytimes op-ed confirms the Woodward book’s remarkable details of Trump’s unfitness & danger to the country.

If Republicans think they're doing Trump's bidding, that's only half the story. They're doing Putin's bidding. Instead of praising Bruce Ohr for fighting Russian organized crime, they try to discredit him and his work. This is why people call GOP traitors.…
Comey, McCabe, Strzok, now Ohr. Republicans say it's no coincidence Bruce Ohr was at the center of much in the Russia probe. Well, duh, he investigates Russian organized crime, and Putin's runs a mafia state, so yeah, no coincidence.… #inners #maddow
#Maddow reviews stellar career of Bruce Ohr leading investigations of Russian organized crime, including top criminal Mogilevich. Ohr was also one of the officials to revoke Deripaska's US visa. And now he's the object of conspiracy theories on right-wing media on a 24-hour loop.

Going in @ICEgov detention center in SoCal to meet still-separated dad Ascencion who signed form saying he didn’t want to be reunited with his 15 year old son — says he didn’t know what he was signing.

I’m with his lawyers from @ImmDef.

Not sure if ICE will let me meet him.
No luck.

We were met by these agents from ICE and Geo Group, private prison that runs Adelanto.

Guy on left said they were expecting me but I couldn’t get in to see Ascencion despite advance notice.

Waited three hours while attorneys went in.

ICE says maybe next week.
Ascencion sent out this letter for me to read:

They‘re deporting me without me knowing. The government is treating me very badly. I‘m being ignored.

The separation is affecting me a lot. I don’t know that I will ever forget this. I am going crazy. I am in an inhumane situation.

Expecting update today from Trump administration on status of family reunifications.

Waiting on new numbers of how many kids are still separated.

Last count: 2,551.

Hoping, too, for *any* info on how many of their parents already deported.

As @maddow says, watch this space.
BREAKING: In court filing, Trump administration says 719 parents of the 2,551 still-separated children have a "final order of removal," meaning they could be immediately deported after reunification.

@LindsayTozzzz of @ImmDef just told me “that's a pretty horrifying statistic."
NEW: 7 days until migrant family reunification deadline.

Government says only 14% of kids have been reunited.

1/3 of parents could be deported right after reunification.

Latest, with @JuliaEAinsley.

We're coming up on @allinwithchris. #inners…

Trump may be an intellectual moron, but he's a helluva puppet. He discredits rule-of-law democracy, divides us from allies, AND 2yrs after Russia's info warfare disrupted & shockingly tipped our election, the puppet STILL pushes Putin's big gaslight lie—none of it ever happened.
🚨Trump continues to advance Russian interests—NOT ours: Y'day, he pushed Putin's lie that Russia didn't "meddle." (Even GOP Senate Intel Cmte concluded Russia attacked our democracy to rig the election for Trump.) Today, Trump again floats Russia's claim to Crimea is negotiable.
MORE SHOCKING gifts to Putin: Trump orders Pentagon to analyze costs of withdrawing American troops from Germany—the only bulwark against a potential further Russian invasion of Europe. This during the height of #Russia's malign activity around the world. #maddow #inners

#BREAKING Trump gives in, drafts Executive Order to temporarily stop separating families at the border, per @MSNBC. So no more children as political hostages. But they’ll continue treating refugees as a whole as criminals? #CollectivePunishment #WorldRefugeeDay #Immigration
Trump: We have to be tough. Otherwise we’ll be overrun with people & crime.

So open cruelty may end but apparently “zero tolerance” won’t. 2500 children have already been separated from families. Crisis & incompetence remains as long as US criminalizes refugees. #WorldRefugeeDay
“I do thank you for your leadership”—DHS @SecNielsen begins AND ends her photo-op speech w/ Trump ostensibly ending family separation policy, eating her “there is no policy” words with an icky sycophant sandwich. (“Sycophant Sandwich” also a good caption for photo…because Pence)

I’m a part of the first group of journalists to go into the shelter for detained child migrants in Brownsville Texas since the zero tolerance separation policy was announced. 1000+ boys here.

Going in right now.

More tonight w @chrislhayes on @allinwithchris @MSNBC. #inners
Just finished tour, don’t even know where to start.

One of the first things you notice when you walk into the shelter — no joke — a mural of Trump with the quote “sometimes losing a battle you find a new way to win the war.”

Presidential murals everywhere. But that one is 1st.
This shelter, Casa Padre, is the largest licensed childcare facility of its kind in the country. Nearly 1,500 boys 10-17 in here now. They’re supposed to sleep four to room. Nearly every room has 5. They’ve received a variance from the state because of overcrowding.

As @ianbassin said on #inners there was a hearing yesterday which, "was the first time that Trump lawyers stood up in open court to answer questions about the #Russia conspiracy and amazingly the Trump legal team didn't push back very hard on the idea of a conspiracy." 1/
Yesterday in court #Trump lawyers, "..were essentially arguing that even if we did work with #Russia to dump these emails which were hacked, well that's just political activity and our First Amendment right to do so." #inners
on #Trump White House Counsel, "Trump may not care about tearing down the norms of our democracy, but surely some of these people do...Have these people no decency left? We're talking about Trump trying to out an informant that could endanger lives." #inners

Trump's admin has made life exceedingly difficult for people like me who are fighting #cancer & dealing with extreme medical costs.

Obama said in 2009 that he hated watching his mother forced to work to pay bills as she fought for her life.

Many of us are still doing this.
Now Trump wants to make yet another critic of #ACA--the only buffer sick & #disabled Americans have until we get #UHC--head of HHS.

#AlexAzar is an actual lobbyist for #BigPharma.
And cut his legal teeth--he's a lawyer--working for #KenStarr investigating the Clintons.
Anyone who thinks sick/#disabled people are going to get a fair shake under this presidency aren't thinking clearly. And while I know we have more Russia news and
more sexual abuse claims today, this appointment impacts EVERY SINGLE AMERICAN WHO IS NOT RICH and it's barely news.
