How @USAmbEU #Sondland seized control of Ukraine portfolio to help Trump:

Force Ukraine to forge kompromat on Biden.

Crimes: extortion, abuse of power & election interference

@USAmbEU Ambassador #Sondland’s predecessor, @TonyLGardner:

[Sondland's] special assignment to Ukraine is “extremely unusual,’’ since it has little to do with the EU. 🤔

And Sondland's own colleagues are 'not aware' of the scope of his activities in Ukraine. 🤔

When Nancy Pelosi promised to "confront the #CultureOfCorruption in the [Trump] Administration" back in November, the @dccc was already enjoying hundreds of thousands in donations from one of Putin's oligarchs.

Explain yourself, @SpeakerPelosi!

#ReturnTheMoney #PutinsPelosi
Pelosi's DCCC received another nearly $250,000 from one of Putin's oligarchs - the one who donated to #MoscowMitchMcTreason and #LeningradLindsey - this past June.

Explain how this hasn't interfered with holding public hearings on #TrumpRussia!

THE DANGER OF BARR PARROTING TRUMP CONSPIRACY THEORIES

It legitimizes the falsehoods

They’re out to get me
It a coup
It’s the Deep State

And if he loses in 2020? Will he refuse to relinquish office because the system is “rigged”?

Democracy stands at the edge of a precipice
Think Barr was simply being loose with his language? Consider-he said

“I THINK SPYING ON A POLITICAL CAMPAIGN IS A BIG DEAL”

That implies he knew EXACTLY what he was saying

He’s not Matt Whitaker

Also HE KNEW THIS CLAIM HAD ALREADY BEEN DEBUNKED

forbes.com/sites/steveden…
Combine this with

The memo he sent to Trump undermining the Mueller investigation

Giving life to ANOTHER Trump talking point by prejudging Meuller’s conclusions

And you have a man who apparently decided sycophancy was more important than his principles

1) If read, by the 3rd paragraph, you find that #TheHill's title leans heavily to the clickbait side of web antics. The controversies of #HRC/#Hussein actually go to the #FBI's handling of the investigation & apps for #FISAWarrants. #Graham's investigations would be a......
2) look into unfinished disclosure of facts that began to be brought forward in docs like the #OIGReport. The #FBI & #DOJ #Corruption would be the starting point & just what that would inevitably lead to is what has again stirred the #DCPanic.

3) visualizing the #Hussein era #FBI/#DOJ one must understand the #CultureOfCorruption that existed within its hierarchy. You were taught that you were innocent until proven guilty, that honesty & integrity were hallmarks of the #FBI & divs of the #DOJ & in reality that's false!

1/ Financial Services Cmte. (@FSCDems)

High on @RepMaxineWaters' agenda are Deutschebank loans to Trump & Trump's roll-back of banking regulations.

She also aims to empower the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which the Trump administration has been gutting.
2/ Intelligence Cmte. (No Twitter handle yet)

Under R's, Intel impeded the Russia probe, pushed Deep State conspiracy theories & blocked subpoenas.

But now, @RepAdamSchiff is staffing up Intel for a real investigation of Russia's attack on democracy & Trump campaign complicity.

(1/21) The 2017-18 @HouseGOP had plenty of indictments, #GOPCorruption, and ethical breaches (see my 21-tweet-thread: ). Now meet House GOP freshmen being sworn in on 1/3/19. With their baggage, they'll fit right in.

#CultureOfCorruption #GOPComplicit
(2/21) Ross Spano @RossSpano #FL15
In a clear violation of @FEC campaign finance regs, Spano funded his campaign with large, unreported loans from personal friends. Given the amt & his relatively narrow win margin, it's shocking he is even being seated. (tampabay.com/florida-politi…)
(3/21) Anthony Gonzalez @anthonygonzalez #OH16
In another flouting of @FEC regulations, Gonzalez faced scrutiny for apparently (and illegally) colluding with a supportive Super PAC that was funded solely by - wait for it - Gonzalez's father! (washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/christ…)

article by @SharonLNYT has a fantastic description of Trump's #CultureOfCorruption: "Trump looks for people who share his disregard for the truth and are willing to parrot him, 'even if it’s a lie, even if they know it’s a lie....'" /1
nytimes.com/2018/12/01/us/…
Trump isn't looking for people who are competent or ethical, in fact just the opposite: "They must be 'loyal to what he is saying right now,'...or he sees them as 'a traitor.'”

The result: an administration filled with incompetent, unethical cronies. /2
But it's not just Trump's senior team. The #CultureOfCorruption seeps through the whole government.

At Ben Carson's HUD, there is “a premium put on loyalty over expertise.” Leads to incompetence that wastes taxpayer $ and hurts the most vulnerable. /3

Within weeks of the Orlando nightclub shooting, Sen. Tom Udall (D-NM) participated in a sit-in at the House to demand votes on gun control legislation, saying, "We owe it to the LGBT community & all families harmed by gun violence to keep terror suspects from obtaining guns."
Since he was first elected to Congress in 1998, Sen. Udall has taken a leadership role on a wide array of environmental issues, receiving a lifetime score of 96% from the League of Conservation Voters.
#DemSenate2020 #DemsWork4USA #DemFuture #ForThePeople
Sen. Udall was one of the original co-sponsors of the Arctic Wilderness Bill, and more recently has worked closely with the Navajo and Pueblo nations in New Mexico to oppose new leasing, drilling and fracking near Chaco Canyon National Park. #DemSenate2020 #DemFuture

@realDonaldTrump 1) Oh yeah, only a monster would try to rewrite his father's will when he was sick.
President Trump received at least $413 million in today’s dollars from his father’s real estate empire, much of it through tax dodges dubious tax schemes including instances of outright fraud.
@realDonaldTrump 2) The Times documented 295 streams of revenue that Fred Trump created over five decades to enrich his son. Over time, as Donald Trump careened from one financial disaster to the next, his father found ways to give him substantially more money, records show.
@realDonaldTrump 3) In 1990, according to previously secret depositions, Mr. Trump tried to have his father’s will rewritten in a way that Fred Trump, alarmed and angered, feared could result in his empire’s being used to bail out his son’s failing businesses.

🍑Lucy McBath @LucyWins2018: Mother, Wife, Businesswoman, Activist for Social Justice.

🗣️You might recognize her from the 2016 #Democratic Convention: she represented Mothers of the Movement, a group of women whose African American children have been killed by gun violence.
🍑She intended to run for the #Georgia Legislature, but after the Parkland #Florida shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, she decided her aspirations weren’t high enough. #NeverAgainMSD #BeAVoter
🍑She’s running for Congress in George’s 6th District and could use your help because she’s in a tight race. She’s running against the SAME NRA-backed, A-rated Republican that Jon Ossoff ran against in a runoff election in June 2017. Ossoff should have won back then.

World’s greatest detective here because *45 is selling his supporters data for his fiscal gain to Excelsior.

*45 wants to monetize his supporter database, charging $35 for 1K emails.

He’s exploring text messaging rates...
nytimes.com/2018/10/13/us/…
The current legislative branch has not stepped in to check *45’s power grab.

We need to #VoteThemOut 11/6 to ensure *45 doesn’t monetize government data or to use #TrumpText for his own financial gain.

Current clients @JudicialWatch @HawleyMO @RepDeSantis #BlackoutBrett
Excelsior is a new marketing firm.

*45’s track record with due diligence is like the #CultureOfCorruption’s record with the popular vote.

Spotty at best.

We need assurances as the public controls are in place to protect people’s private information and enable them to opt out.

🤪This rant-fest by Trump on Puerto Rico is cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs even for him!

💥Even the #CultureOfCorruption GOP can't support pretending that nearly 3,000 people died in Hurricane Maria in September 2017...can they? Fox can.

🥴This is wacko!

📞Call him out!
🤥This is beyond #LieGate!

#disinformation alert! 🚨

The right's latest talking points are false claims that #Kavanaugh's young children were harassed by Democrats as they were escorted out of the hearing.

This is quickly and easily debunked by a simple Google search. 1/8
A Fox News opinion peice expressed dismay that the 2 young girls were upset by the lack of civility shown to their father.

It doesn't say the children were harassed.

Their mother chose to remove them when Dems addressed the lack of transparency.
2/8 📰goo.gl/CYCaQW
The first result that said the children were harassed was a Reddit post, which contained a screenshot of a tweet. 3/8 #Kavanaugh

So Mr. Trump is visiting the beautiful Dakotas and the ego fluffing rallying continues without pause. Just like yesterday, Trump will continue his rants and attacks on the media and spread lies about Democrats./1 #TrumpEgoRallies #CultureOfCorruption #Cult45
But here's what know he won't do or say: address the real issues facing hard-working North and South Dakota families. He will also fail to talk about the continued #Republican war on health care coverage for 130 million Americans with pre-existing conditions./2 #GOPCorruption
