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

To #Klobuchar from Tahisha Williams Brewer: "I am the mother of #CourtneyWilliams, who was shot by #Minneapolis Police." A homicide detective told Brewer the case would go to a grand jury. She asked, "Why does it *have* to be sent to a grand jury?"

DIFFICULT THREAD -- #BIDEN SHOULD WITHDRAW

1. I respect the will of the voters.

2. But new information has emerged supporting #TaraReade's account of being sexually assaulted by #JoeBiden.

3. Credible rape accusations are disqualifying or we have NO moral standards.
4. Defeating Trump is NOT OPTIONAL.

5. To avoid potential catastrophe in Nov., #Biden should withdraw.

6. #Warren, #Harris, #Klobuchar, #Buttigieg, #Castro, etc. could replace Biden.

7. #Bernie can restart his campaign.

8. We can reboot the primary and give voters a choice.
9. This is the ethical position AND the smarter strategy to beat Trump.

10. We lose ALL moral authority if we embrace "the lesser of two accused rapists."

11. Polls show other Dem candidates can win.

PRINCIPLES MATTER. WE CAN BEAT TRUMP AND PROTECT OUR VALUES.

Email to #Bernie shows campaign's pollster predicted he was within 4 points of #Biden in South Carolina. 2 days later, Biden blew out SC by nearly 30 points, turning the race around.

How Sanders' run came undone: thread int.nyt.com/data/documenth…
In Jan, @ZephyrTeachout, a law prof allied w/ #Sanders, wrote an op-ed alleging #Biden had “a big corruption problem," & the campaign sent it to everyone on its large email list.

✔️ #Sanders "put a stop to it. 'It is absolutely not my view that Joe is corrupt in any way.'"
In Feb, VT Rep @PeterWelch implored #Sanders to "ease up" on his attacks of #democrats. Welch believed it "sounded exclusionary to ordinary people backing other candidates, ... a lot of voters who are just everyday voters, who decided to vote for other #Dems" (NYT 3/21).

🇺🇸 #THREAD
Joe #Biden ha vinto il #SuperTuesday, l'appuntamento più importante delle primarie Dem #USA. L'ex vicepresidente di Barack Obama ha vinto in almeno 9 dei 14 stati in cui si andava al voto (potrebbero diventare 10 con il Maine, dove al momento è in lieve vantaggio).
🇺🇸 Anche se lo scrutinio non è ancora concluso al 100%, possiamo infatti dare per certa la vittoria di #Biden in Alabama, Arkansas, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas e Virginia.
🇺🇸 Bernie #Sanders ha invece vinto in California, Colorado, Utah e Vermont. Infine, il miliardario Michael #Bloomberg - entrato in gioco solo nel #SuperTuesday - ha trionfato solo nei caucus che si sono tenuti nelle Samoa Americane.

The crooked ass, #Soros owned, #DeepState #DNC, just had their assets #Buttigieg & #Klobuchar drop out & support #JoeBiden before #SuperTuesday to prop up JB for a 3-way race between Biden, #Bernie & #Bloomberg who will eventually give his resources to JB w/ MB as VP to beat BS.
#DeepState traitor, #Biden & full economic might of the #CouncilOf300, #Bloomberg set out to crush #BernieSanders for the final votes w/ heavy voter fraud. If Bernie still wins, they’ll pull a #Hillary superdelegate to push their candidate. #DNC is cold blooded CROOKED #WakeUp
.@realDonaldTrump confirms that #PeteButtigieg & #Klobuchar made a #QuidProQuo deal w/ #JoeBiden in exchange for their endorsement. It’s a dirty game folks & the #DNC is the epicenter of it all. Anyone on the fence or lurkers of the movement, keep your 👀 on the #DNC’s sick games

1/ “Even if a new president proposes sweeping reforms, Congress would block or severely #weaken them. In #foreignpolicy, however, a new president could reshape the world with a few strokes of the pen. @StephenKinzer
@stephenkinzer 2/ “A president could bring the U.S. back into the Iran nuclear deal; lift sanctions on Venezuela; offer to begin peace talks with Russia & China; pull American troops out of the ME; stop promoting the overthrow of foreign governments @StephenKinzer
@stephenkinzer 3/ 3 candidates are fully wedded to the paradigm of #conflict & #confrontation that shapes American #foreignpolicy: #JoeBiden, #AmyKlobuchar, & #PeteButtigieg.

1er bilan de cette primaire du #NewHampshire?
3 faits majeurs:
1. #BernieSanders vainqueur mais avec 1 marge plus faible que prévu sur #Buttigieg. Ils sortent en tête de la séquence #Iowa/#NH
2. Désastre total pour #Warren ET #Biden sous les 10%
3. #Klobuchar surgit vraiment.
RT
2) Le #NewHampshire, juge de paix de la 1ère "étape" des primaires démocrates, a rendu 1 verdict en 3 étages:
. les 3ers candidats ont chacun de quoi se réjouir.
. Il y a 2 vaincus écrasés.
. Le grupetto (désolé mais j'aime ma métaphore TDF😉) des petits candidats est écrémé.
3) Pour #BernieSanders, si la victoire est bien moins éclatante qu'en 2016 dans 1 #NewHampshire frontalier de son #Vermont d'élection, à cause d' 1 contexte différent, "a win is a win" et le contrat est rempli. Il apparaît, avec l'effondrement de #Biden, en "frontrunner" national

🇺🇸🗳️ Dans pile un mois, c’est le début d'une longue et palpitante saison électorale aux #EtatsUnis avec le caucus de l’#Iowa lors duquel 14 candidats vont concourir à l'investiture du parti démocrate. #primaires
🇺🇸🗳️ Au niveau national, peu d'évolutions en un an de campagne :

➡️#Biden reste en tête

➡️Les candidats de l’aile gauche #Sanders et #Warren le suivent à distance

➡️#Buttigieg est le seul autre candidat à se démarquer, les autres faisant (pour l’instant ?) de la figuration
🇺🇸🗳️ Mais les sondages nationaux ont peu d’importance à ce stade : si un candidat crée la surprise lors d’une des premières primaires, il peut impulser une dynamique à sa campagne (le « momentum ») qui l’avantagera lors des scrutins suivants.

I'm really surprised Dems haven't held #Klobuchar to account for her well-documented history of "cruelty" toward staff. If a male senator was known to throw things at staff, berate & "dehumanize" them, expect them to pick up his clothes & fold his underwear, would we let it go?
In 2006, Local 2938 urged AFSCME NOT to endorse #Klobuchar for Senate. 2938 represented attorneys & legal professionals who worked under Klobuchar for 7 years, & they felt she was "wholly undeserving of AFSCME's endorsement."
My husband & I are proud #NEA members. We think Democrats ought to take more seriously the charges leveled against #Klobuchar by the local union that represented her employees for 7 years.

I've seen the numerous articles about @amyklobuchar pointing out that #Buttigieg doesn't have the experience that is normally required to be taken seriously on the national political stage. What I haven't seen are the articles pointing out #klobuchar 's immense success. #women

Le #breaking GOAT😉 de la nuit US. Le procureur spécial #Mueller a ÉCRIT au ministre de la Justice #Barr pour lui dire que son relevé de conclusions sur son enquête ne correspondait pas à son rapport sur #Trump. Retournement massif. washingtonpost.com/world/national…
2) Dans cette lettre, #Mueller accuse nommément #Barr d'avoir semé la confusion dans le public avec ses conclusions sur #Trump qui "ne capturent pas pleinement le contexte, la nature et la substance du rapport et de ses conclusions" (#verbatim)
3) D'après le @washingtonpost, dans 1 entretien téléphonique postérieur- mais attention, là, sources indirectes- à la lettre, #Mueller ne reproche pas à #Barr de mentir mais d'avoir présenté des conclusions égarant le public et les médias quant à l'obstruction de #Trump.

I was attacked viciously by Democrats last year for saying that #Avenatti was not only not presidential material, but dangerous for Dems to tie themselves to, that he had questionable history with clients and contractors and women.

I was the 1st journalist Avenatti blocked.
1/
Hundreds of Democrats, including some prominent Twitter voices, claimed he would be our best choice for 2020 and excoriated me for "being divisive."
Avenatti tanked the fight against #Kavanaugh by bringing in a questionable witness who gave the #GOP an excuse to ignore Ford.
2/
Many of the #Avenatti fans are now pushing #Biden, which I have also said is a huge error in judgement.
Just as I warned #Mueller was not going to save us.
My point is simply that some of us have been covering politics for decades and doing it without fealty to individuals.

As documented by @TheAtlantic's always-excellent @JamesFallows, one of the underappreciated factors in 2016 election is the failure of #journalism to do its job (one Jim story-- he has many others).
...My thoughts on how to prevent repeat in 2020: <thread>
theatlantic.com/notes/2017/09/…
In 2016, MSM obsessively covered @HillaryClinton emails, while ignoring the far-more-important story of #FBI investigation of the Trump campaign. This failure had a major impact on the election's outcome. My analysis is shaped by experience in both in #journalism and politics:
We're seeing exactly the same dynamic in the 2020 campaign that we saw in 2016: MSM is focusing on horserace issues & GOP talking points, rather than delving into SUBSTANTIVE differences between the candidates. This could determine outcome of Dem primaries-- & general election.
