My take:
#Iran has ordered its proxies - Hamas & Islamic Jihad - to launch these attacks to save face as sanctions begin to cripple its regime.

Tehran has deployed armed security forces on the streets of Ahwaz(Ahvaz). It appears the regime fears mass unrests following US sanctions. So far, Iranian security forces have been deployed to four cities to confront any possible anti-establishment protest.
Anti-establishment protests are happening in Ahwaz. Protesters chanting “we have never seen this level of injustice, down with the dictator. We want our rights.” Heavily armed security forces attacked them after a few minutes.

#BREAKING Trump FIRES Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Trump asked him to submit letter of resignation. Let's remember Sessions did everything Trump wanted, even separated children at border. The ONLY reason Trump fired him: Sessions recused, didn't stop the Russia investigation.
Trump fired Sessions and replaced him with a man who has openly expressed hostility to the Mueller investigation. Matthew Whitaker wrote in 2017 that investigating Trump's financial ties to Russia is beyond Mueller's scope. Ridiculous then. Now dangerous. cnn.com/2017/08/06/opi…
CNN reports Kelly fired Sessions at Trump's request. Before the cray am press conference, at which Trump threatened Democrats who would do their oversight DUTY to investigate him, whipped Republicans who shunned him…and called a woman of color 'racist' for asking abt Nationalism

BREAKING: Attorney General Jeff Sessions resigns at Trump’s request.

It's happening, Trump is going to attempt to end the Mueller probe. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.
wapo.st/2qyyRYL
Lindsey Graham in July 2017: "If Sessions is fired, there will be holy hell to pay."

How long before 2018 Lindsey is appointed Attorney General?
Trump named Matthew Whitaker, Sessions' chief of staff, as acting AG. Whitaker is now set to oversee the Mueller's probe.

Whitaker, once wrote an opinion column before joining the DOJ titled "Mueller's investigation into Trump is going too far." nbcnews.com/politics/white…

🚨MY MASTER THREAD of #Midterm2018 results analysis, including an array of data dives. Will the country chose to repudiate president Trump? Health care instead of the wall? RT & strap in, folks, tonight could be a wild ride. We get the first batch of results at around 6 PM ET.
Turnout has looked unprecedented for weeks now. Indications today that it could even beat these lofty expectations. At this point I think I’d buy for pickups in Tossup sub/urban seats like #TX07 #TX32 and #TX26, but sell in more rural districts that have looked like reaches.
