🔥@FrankFigliuzzi1: Don’t be surprised if FBI counter-intelligence div is looking at that (Deripaska) aluminum factory deal in Kentucky. Why does McConnell for years just not want to hear the truth abt Russia? It just begs the Q: Is there a flow of money? Is there a compromise??
@FrankFigliuzzi1 @NicolleDWallace 🤯It's nuts that US lifted #sanctions for close Putin ally #Deripaska—who Manafort briefed during #Russia's attack! That #McConnell stopped a bipartisan effort to reverse it, then got a Russian alum plant in #Kentucky smells of corruption if not…
@FrankFigliuzzi1 @NicolleDWallace 🤯Not only did McConnell push to lift sanctions for Putin's pal #Deripaska. But Mitch's Kentucky taxpayers must give the Russian oligarch's Rusal $15,000,000 to help Russia get a foothold in US economy! Of course, #MoscowMitch denies knowing about any "Russian investor."🤔#maddow

#ElPasoShooting UPDATE: #ElPaso police confirm
—Multiple fatalities
—Multiple people transported to hospital
—One suspect in custody
—NO active shooter
—Police are investigating several crime scene areas, Walmart and Cielo Vista Mall, Texas
via @MSNBC

I can’t help thinking abt families shopping at Walmart for school supplies being slaughtered like animals. El Paso like Gilroy has a large Latino population. Trump’s dehumanization & conflation of immigrants & criminals put targets on them.

‼️The day after Mueller warned of ongoing Russia threat, Republicans block election security bills. Even as NEW Senate report confirms the NIGHTMARE SCENARIO DID HAPPEN in 2016—Russia breached ALL 50 states’ systems & was ABLE TO CHANGE VOTER DATA! #Inners
🚨Pay attention! @chrislhayes is right. The nightmare scenario DID happen. Russia attacked all 50 states & was able to change+/delete voter data. The #SenateReport states "no evidence votes were manipulated" BUT adds MAJOR CAVEAT—"Insight is LIMITED"—3 times!—pp 5,10, 38. #Inners
@chrislhayes #SenateReport states they don't have the data (yet?) to know whether Russia manipulated votes/data. "Committee has limited information on the extent to which state and local election authorities carried out forensic evaluation of registration databases." (fn p5) #inners #Maddow

Senate Republicans blocked two election security bills and a cybersecurity measure on Wednesday in the wake of Mueller's warning that Russia's interference in our elections is ongoing.

Because Republicans can't win 2020 without help from Russia.
"Deripaska's RUSAL to invest $200M in an aluminum plant in KY," home state of @senatemajldr, whose Senate Leadership Fund received a $3.5M from Deripaska business partner, Len Blavatnik, during the 2015-2016 election cycle.
"He's aiding and abetting Putin’s ongoing effort to subvert US democracy, according to FBI, CIA, DNI...All Republicans are saying Russia is trying to subvert US democracy and #MoscowMitch won’t even let the Senate take a vote on it. That is un-American."

😱🤢>> Trump’s New Favorite Propaganda Channel Employs Kremlin-Paid "Journalist" Also Working For Russia's Sputnik Propaganda Network. Yup, the one that attacked our election w/ disinformation pumping up Trump & demonizing Hillary… #Maddow
OAN completes the merger between Russian state-run propaganda & US conservative media. Kremlin propaganda sneaks into segments, dropped in by Sputnik writer as offhand background information—on Soros, Antifa, White Helmets—all favorite foils for Russia's disinformation warriors.
@thedailybeast @kpoulsen I remember Trump called on a "reporter" from “One America News" at a news conference with Poland's President Duda in Sept 2018. OAN is a fringe right-wing pro-Trump & pro-Kremlin propaganda network. Now we know they even employ the same people. https://…

"Mueller is not bound by assertions of presidential privilege, but he is known as a rule-follower who is unlikely to defy the administration’s direction."
NEW: DOJ tells Mueller to limit testimony to his report, arguing that anything beyond that is covered by 'presidential privilege' that hasn’t been waived [it has]. As a private citizen, Mueller is not bound by assertions of presidential privilege.
"Though Trump & his aides are projecting a hands-off approach, they’ve signaled that they expect Mueller to closely guard the voluminous evidence he gathered re the inner workings of the Trump White House."

Mueller doesn't work for Trump or Barr.

SCOOP: George Nader, who served as an informal advisor to Trump, has been hit with NEW federal charges of child pornography and sex trafficking –– separate from the child-porn charges brought against him last month.

In Oct 2016, Michael Cohen, Trump, and Hope Hicks discussed ways to keep Trump's former lover, Stormy Daniels, from going public about their affair.

Didn't Hope Hicks claim – under oath – that she wasn't part of discussions re Stormy Daniels prior to the story becoming public?
BREAKING: Newly released Michael Cohen files implicate Trump, Hope Hicks, and David Pecker.

Recall: In Dec 2018, Trump pressed his acting AG on why more wasn't being done to "control" SDNY prosecutors on the Cohen case. Then, just weeks after Barr became AG, the lead Cohen case prosecutor was out and communication between SDNY & Trump Org ended.

BREAKING: Did Jeffrey Epstein offer prosecutors anything in return for his sweetheart deal? Bruce Reinhart went from prosecuting Epstein to representing Epstein’s accomplices who then also received immunity for trafficking underage girls.
by @jkbjournalist…
“The government admits that it has information about a personal or business relationship between Jeffrey Epstein and another Florida prosecutor involved in the Epstein case, Matthew Menchel.’’
When police raided Epstein’s Palm Beach estate, they found all his computers had been removed, suggesting that someone in Krischer’s office had tipped off Epstein about the search warrants.

GOP & @VP saw this at border in Texas: 400 dirty hungry men in squalid fenced cages. Stench so intense, guards wore masks. When reporters arrived, the men reached out in desperation.

Crisis & dysfunction results when govt prioritizes political propaganda over solving problems.
@VP Since this was a PR trip to the border, Pence manages to gaslight like we've come to expect from this Orwellian regime. The images were shocking—400 migrants kept in squalid smelly overcrowded cages, many for 40 days. VP paints THAT as "humane and compassionate care"! 😲😢#inners
Pence's gaslighting about squalid detention camps turns my stomach:

"What we saw today is encouraging… They're getting healthcare, hygiene. We have to put the lie to this 'concentration camp' slander… The Nazis killed people. Our CPB are saving lives."

NEW: Jeffrey Epstein, convicted child rapist now facing sex-trafficking charges in New York, was accused of witness tampering on Friday by federal prosecutors, who say Epstein wired $350,000 to 2 potential witnesses against him.
by @BenWeiserNYT #Maddow
After @MiamiHerald's story broke in 2018, Epstein tried to “influence co-conspirators” who might provide evidence against him. He wired $250K to an employee and $100K to a 2nd person. Both were named by the government as possible co-conspirators.
Epstein associate to one of Epstein's victims in 2006: "Those who help [Epstein] will be compensated and those who hurt him will be dealt with."

"Buried deep in this compilation, is a brief video, taken on a cell phone, showing Mr. Trump kissing Ms. Johnson inside a Campaign RV on AUG 24, 2016—just as Ms. Johnson alleged [an unwanted kiss from Trump]."

"It is now undisputable that Mr. Trump in fact kissed Ms. Johnson."
NEW Court Filing: "Notwithstanding Defendants' efforts to mischaracterize the video to the Court, the VIDEO shows exactly what Ms. Johnson alleged happened to her: an unwanted kiss from Defendant Trump...inside a Campaign RV on August 24, 2016."
"It now appears that counsel purposefully avoided entering into an ESI protocol so counsel could alter a video of Defendant Trump kissing Ms Johnson, hide it in unrelated footage, and sandbag Ms Johnson with the video at her deposition."
