Why is @DonnaShalala running for Congress in #Miami as a Democrat after she supported a generation of Republican lawmakers to turn Florida's public education system into a charter school paradise while hurting unions? #FL27
I call it: Donna Does Republican Donations
Shalala donated to some of #Florida's WORST #Republican state lawmakers including bigots, tax cheats, adulterers an to employees of the state's largest charter school who voted to expand that school's reach!
She said it was a quid pro quo to get benefits for UM.
..and the story continues to widen as reporters unearth at least six other #GOP current and former Members of Congress who have recently owned or sold stock in Innate Immunotherapeutics, the Australian company at the center of the arrest of Rep. Collins./3 #GOPCORRUPT#Collins
@GOP Congressman/fmr CIA Will @HurdOnTheHill: “Over the course of my career as an undercover officer in the CIA, I saw Russian intelligence manipulate many people. I never thought I would see the day when an American @POTUS would be one of them.” nytimes.com/2018/07/19/opi…
🔥Trump’s “failure to defend the USIC’s unanimous conclusions of #Russian meddling... & condemn #Russian covert counterinfluence campaigns and his standing idle on the world stage while a Russian dictator spouted lies confused many but should **concern all Americans**.”🇺🇸
“As a member of Congress, a coequal branch of government designed by our founders to provide checks & balances on the executive branch, I believe that lawmakers must *fulfill our oversight duty* (and) keep the American people informed of the current DANGER.”🔥
From the great @JamesFallows re #HelsinkiSummit
"Those who could do something are the 51 #Republican senators and 236 Republican representatives who have the power to hold hearings, issue subpoenas, pass resolutions of censure, guarantee the integrity..."
"...of Robert #MuellerInvestigation , condemn the past #Russian election interference, shore up protections against the next assault, & in general defend their country rather than the damaged & defective man who is now its president.
"For 18 mos, membs of this party have averted their eyes frm #Trump rather than disturb the Trump elements amng their constituency or disrupt the party’s agenda on tax cuts & the #SCOTUS . They already bear responsibility for what Trump has done to his office.
🔥In the charging documents for accused #Russian🇷🇺agent Maria Butina, the unnamed “US Person 1” — who established a “VERY private line of communication btwn the Kremlin & key [@GOP] leaders through, of all conduits, the #NRA” — appears to be #GOP consultant Paul Erickson. 1/
Note that #DOJ says that “US Person 1” arranged the secret backchannel btwn the Kremlin and **key @GOP leaders** (not just Team Trump).🔥
How many people in the #GOP freaked out when they read that Butina got busted⁉️ 2/
Putin's American lobbying efforts have had lots of help from Republicans, including one Soviet-emigre professor who wrote a book on behalf of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and a former Pennsylvania GOP Representative.
Donald Trump's connections to people in the #TrumpRussia affair include a pair of Russian oligarchs who funneled him cash and a Ukrainian politician who pushed a back-channel "peace plan" written by a corrupt former Republican congressman.
2. You said #Conservative principles didn’t really matter, though you really couldn’t tell us what #Conservatism means. Of course, your leader didn’t know either; his attempts to articulate it were painful. You mocked our efforts to explain. ->
3. #Trump wild swings of rhetoric, positions, moods didn’t bother any of you. Whatever Trump said last was best & most true, no matter the word salad in which it was presented. His blatant self-contradictions were obvious to all but to you. ->
From first-time hopefuls to seasoned veterans, African American women are lining up to disrupt the mostly white, mostly #Republican old boys’ club in #Alabama's political offices. ✊🏾✊🏿 We spoke to 18 candidates that are leading the charge: glmr.co/Mvi0IOy
“After decades of activism and advocacy, black women are finally getting the recognition they deserve.” @RepTerriSewell, running for re-election to the U.S. House District 7
“My hope for women in 2018 is that we will realize our political power. I hope women will run without fear, run zealously, and advocate for our constituents.” Ashley Smith, running for District Judge in Lowndes County #Alabama
If the Scartozzi's intended to abandon their legally desribed easement in order to ingress and egress their seasonal property, via Gerald Clark's "Private Driveway" they needed to do so in a cpurt of law with all effected parties participation. Including me whose property
serves their easement. Especially since the Clark's tried to steal, via legal abuse via their crooked atty Richard Sellman, myndads portion of the easement in 2010 and lost. If a private driveway is more appealing to the Scartozzi's I recommend they put in their own as the
increased wear and tear on my property is quite noticeable and the Clarks comining in on it is considered criminal trespass. ...again one of those things that really serves no legitamate purpose. The bottom line is they've used Clark's private driveway since it was created 2007.
THREAD: Mueller is investigating a Ukrainian’s $150,000 payment to Trump Org *during the campaign* for a Trump appearance, as part of a BROADER probe of streams of foreign money to Trump & associates in the years before the election‼️ 1/
In response to a #subpoena *this year* for an array of records of business w/FOREIGN nationals, Trump Org handed over documents about the donation, SOLICITED BY MICHAEL COHEN.🤨 2/
The $150k donation from Ukrainian billionaire, Victor Pinchuk, who has sought closer ties for Ukraine to the West, was the LARGEST Trump's foundation received in 2015 from anyone, besides Trump himself.🙄 3/
