#Breaking badaboum...Pourquoi #Trump s'en sortira et les élus républicains n'iront pas au-delà des cris d'orfraie? Réponse dans ce #sondage fiable @CBSNews: 68% des républicains approuvent #Helsinki, 42% ne croient pas à l'ingérence de la #Russie...#CQFD cbsnews.com/news/poll-trum…
2) Avec l'annonce qui vient de tomber où #Trump refuse- après l'avoir considérée- la demande de #Poutine d'interroger des diplomates de #Russie, on peut d'ailleurs considérer la crise post-#Helsinki presque close...
3) Pour la 1ère fois #Trump fut contraint à plusieurs reprises après #Helsinki de se dédire. À cause du désaccord de SES équipes qui ont tracé- pour cette fois- 1 ligne rouge sur #Poutine et la #Russie. Pour les membres de l'administration, l'essentiel est sauf,on peut continuer

#BREAKING: TWO WEEKS BEFORE INAUGURATION TRUMP WAS SHOWN PROOF PUTIN PERSONALLY ORDERED U.S. ELECTION HACK AND INTERFERENCE.

Trump was shown messages from Russian Military.

Each time he's cast doubt, he lied to cover up Russia's attack on our democracy.
nytimes.com/2018/07/18/wor…
#OBVIOUSLY: None of this is surprising. But would love to hear what Republicans have to say now...

What about the House Intel Republicans who claimed that they did not believe Putin personally ordered election interference to help Trump and hurt Hilary?
#RELATED: Trump and Clinton were both warned by the FBI in Summer 2016 that Russia COULD TRY TO INFILTRATE or SPY ON THEIR CAMPAIGNS.

Trump has claimed multiple times that the FBI and Obama Administration didn't warn him and did nothing to stop Russia...

#BREAKING: We are leading 6 AGs in filing suit against the Trump admin for seeking to punish so-called sanctuary jurisdictions by cutting nearly $25M in critical public safety funding.

@realDonaldTrump cannot force state and local police to act as federal immigration agents.
@realDonaldTrump Local police departments across NY have decided not to participate in the Trump admin’s draconian immigration policies.

They know firsthand that public safety depends on building trust—trust that is gravely undermined when a call to the police could result in your deportation.
Instead of allowing NY police to determine how best to keep NYers safe, the Trump admin is threatening to withhold nearly $9M in Byrne-JAG funding from our communities.

This is serious. Byrne-JAG is the primary source of federal criminal justice funding for states & local govts.

#BREAKING: We just filed suit to protect New Yorkers from the federal government's unconstitutional tax law, which drastically cuts the state and local tax deduction. New York will not be bullied. on.ny.gov/2JvOKWU
The new cap on deducting state and local taxes is unconstitutional for 2 key reasons.

It goes beyond settled limits on the federal government’s power to impose an income tax.

And it deliberately targeted—and will disproportionately harm—New York and similar states.
The cap will cost New Yorkers an additional $14.3 billion in 2018 alone.

That is outrageous. We won't stand by and let Washington pick the pockets of New Yorkers—so we've filed suit against this unconstitutional attack on NY and our state's fundamental rights.

So the key @WhiteHouse access reporter from the @nytimes doesn't see today's events as #BREAKING.

That is hard to fathom.

#HelsinkiSummit
.@maggieNYT stood with @PressSec against @Acosta during the #TrumpUKVisit.

Haberman also supported SHS after the #WHCD and the #RedHen incident. In 2017, Haberman said the cast of #Hamilton was rude to @VP Pence and that it was unseemly, as he was VP.
.@maggieNYT was primary reporter on the Hillary Clinton email beat. MH was personally bylined on 53 stories related to Clinton's emails.

No newspaper or reporter had more detailed coverage--incl the front page after the #ComeyLetter which NYT's own Upshot said cost the election.

#Breaking BADABOUM Pour #Trump, président des #EtatsUnis, l'#UnionEuropeenne est 1 ENNEMI. La #Russie seulement sous certains aspects. Oui, vous vous en foutez à cette heure mais vous avez bien lu... Encore 1 fois, aucun hasard, et 1 projet délibéré de destruction. RT+

@AcrossTheBay @JSchanzer & I describe the stakes & provide policy options in @FDD's "Controlled Chaos: The Escalation of Conflict between #Israel & Iran in War-Torn Syria" defenddemocracy.org/media-hit/badr…
The need for our new report and recommendations therein is best summed up two maps indicating today's developments in #Syria:
It's a few hours after Putin & Netanyahu met in #Moscow to discuss the removal of #Iran from #Syria. #Israel responded to the UAV that crossed into its airspace from Syria with strikes at 3 military posts near its border.
