Obama sold the stimulus in primetime. He traveled the country making speeches as well, yet the BS about him not selling it continues. He also passed it while the economy crashing, so everyone knew it was necessary. Many opposed it simply, because he was Black. #inners
The other BS narrative is that it wasn't big enough.. Franken and another Dem weren't seated yet. He needed two republicans to pass it, he got three. They wouldn't support more. And guess what? It worked. It prevented a depression. I'm tired of the lies. #inners
The Obama stimulus saved towns like Elkhart, Indiana. He visited those cities, including Elkhart. They knew who and what saved their economies. They still voted GOP. He saved the auto industry. I remember a worker saying he was voting for Romney in 2012, knowing that. #inners

Wow, y’all watching #inners ? FFS! #TraitorTrump is THE most corrupt politician EVER! Trump plotted w the head of the Civil division at DOJ Clark, concocted a plan to oust Acting AG Rosen in order to FORCE the GA DA to void the election & say Trump won! JFC! This was on Jan 3

🙄Trump's still desperately gaslighting that Russia wanted Hillary Clinton to win the election. Putin himself admitted he wanted Trump in Helsinki. An admission so damning, it's deleted from the official Kremlin transcript. The WH tried deleting it too!
Putin also showed he preferred Trump in a 2016 interview on @CNN: "I really like Trump b/c he wants to restore relations w/ Russia." Putin said this on June 13, 2016—days after the infamous secret June 9 Trump campaign meeting w/ Russians in Trump Tower
@CNN THIS is the Russia hoax, folks ➡️Trump rewriting history:
—Gaslighting Russia's sabotage of our election FOR HIM
—Denying Putin helped HIM win
—Lying abt Putin's own admissions
++It's widely known Putin hated HillaryClinton over Russian protests, Magnitsky sanctions, PanamaPapers

A very happy Putin makes surprise visit to Damascus to meet Syria’s butcher Assad. They don’t look too worried about the aftermath of Soleimani assassination. Rare to see so many smiling Kremlin officials. Trump’s disasters always seem to work out best for Russia.
🤔If #Soleimani was in Damascus planning attacks—imminent or not—on the US, does anyone believe Putin wouldn't know about it?
🤔And that call to Trump re terrorism on Dec 29, about the time Trump changed his mind, stunning Pentagon officials.
…So many questions…
#inners #maddow
Seems weird that Putin left Russia on Russian Orthodox Christmas to meet with Assad in Damascus. Whatever he's up to in Syria, he made sure to have some propaganda photo-ops showing what a good Christian he is, visiting a Greek Orthodox Church. (Why's Assad lighting candles too?)

Hey #inners! Tune in tonight at 8 p.m. for a special episode of @AllInWithChris with a live studio audience. Guests include former Rep. Katie Hill.
Sen. Hirono on comments from the president's defenders as possible Senate impeachment trial approaches: "Maybe they're gonna say, 'So what? Get over it.' We shouldn't get over it, that's not okay."
"Any time he puts his finger anywhere, it all goes haywire. It's chaos," Sen. Hirono says of President Trump. "As long as he stays out of it, then we can get something done."

After visiting Mar-a-Lago to pick up an award from a far-right group, Reps. Hice and Gosar promoted the president’s club on Twitter

WATCH: Rep. Jody Hice (R–GA) on @realDonaldTrump's Mar-a-Lago—

"This place here is amazing.“

"You can’t hide success and its just evidence that this president knows what he’s talking about when it comes to business.”

#Firtash is a hub in #UkraineGate, w/ lawyers DiGenova & Toensing, Giuliani, Parnas, Fruman a few of the known spokes. As part of his own legal strategy, Firtash took steps to help Trump attack Biden, Mueller & his most prominent critics.… #Impeachment
Another GOP blast from the past works for Firtash: Mark Corallo was the guy on Trump's legal team in the Mueller probe who quit after witnessing Trump & Hope Hicks scheming to cover up Don Jr's Trump Tower meeting w/ Russians. Obstruction gave him the willies but not Russian mob?
‼️Parnas & Fruman were flying to Vienna to arrange a @FoxNews interview for Ukraine’s ousted prosecutor Shokin on Hannity, when they were arrested for conspiracy & campaign-finance charges.… #maddow #inners #UkraineGate #ImpeachmentInquiry

Mulvaney: Ukraine aid was tied to Trump’s desire to investigate DNC server & Biden corruption (both baseless propaganda pushed by Russia btw)

Trump’s crimes are so clear, there’s no defense. Just gaslighting, smears, deflection.
ICYMI😅Mulvaney’s bad gaslighting Trump’s abuse of power just admitted the quid pro quo—Ukraine military aid for investigations. 🧐It’s so normal, “We do it all the time.” Watch the bad propagandist confuse US policy objectives w/ personal political gain.
Don't forget how insanely pro-Putin Mulvaney's admitted quid pro quo is: Trump tied military aid for Ukraine's defense against Russian occupiers to investigating a debunked conspiracy theory that a DNC server in Ukraine exonerates Russia in election interference. #Inners #Maddow

🚨JFC >> SO Trump acknowledged Russia’s election interference to Lavrov & Kislyak IN THE OVAL OFFICE!! Then said he was unconcerned about Moscow’s interference in U.S. election b/c US did the same thing. The Washington Post…
🚨And here’s how it connects to #UkraineGate #WhistleblowerComplaint: The memo summarizing Trump’s Oval Offic meeting—where he told Russians #Russia’s election interference was OK—was limited to all but a few with the highest security clearances to keep it hidden. #Maddow #Inners
“White House officials were particularly distressed by Trump’s election remarks because it appeared the president was forgiving Russia for an attack that had been designed to help elect him…Trump also seemed to 🔥invite Russia to interfere🔥in other countries’ elections” #Maddow

As I said to @chrislhayes, impeachment is the antibiotic but new laws are the vaccine. Congress has to harden the rules to prevent Trump or future presidents from abusing their office to corrupt elections. Here’s a few they should enact: #inners
1. Impose procedural restrictions before DOJ can take investigatory steps against a candidate for office. #inners
2. Prevent intimidating activity by law enforcement officers including ICE near polling places. #inners

For someone as smart, accomplished and connected as Rocah, this request is ingenuous. Asking why @TeamPelosi doesn't #impeach is ingenuous, too.
It was just a little more disingenuous for @chrislhayes to ask @RepRaskin about it to, #inners.
@chrislhayes @RepRaskin I think that @Mimirocah1 and Hayes know better than I do why @HouseDemocrats are not so quick to impeach: the #Dems know that the #Trumpanzees - 1 in 5 voters in the USA - would treat it like a coup d'etat and act accordingly. The least harmful act would be to NOT vote for a Dem. Image

Rachel @Maddow just covered the most inhumane of all Trump’s immigration policies—ending Medical Deferment, sending critically ill children like Jonathan Sanchez to be deported and certain death. This quote is from the @NPR story linked to above. Do listen to his voice. #maddow
@maddow @NPR Maria came to US at invitation of doctors for treatment in a clinical trial. Thanks to her, FDA approved meds that improve survival rates for her disease. Trump admin is canceling her medical deferment. Deportation is a death sentence.… #maddow #inners

‼️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

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."

EXCLUSIVE: Botched reunifications left separated kids in vans overnight, one for 39 hours.

E-mail: "There has to be a better process. I hope... there can be adjustments so that we don't put tender age kids in this position."

More on @chrislhayes. #inners
@chrislhayes NEW: As we asked "where are the children?" at least 37 were eating and sleeping overnight in vans parked outside an adult detention center, some two nights, because ICE wasn't ready to reunite them. More: @allinwithchris @JuliaEAinsley @chrislhayes #inners
Hard to believe what’s in this e-mail, but it really does say 37 “tender age” separated migrant kids waited on vans for hours overnight when they were supposed to be in the arms of their parents.

BREAKING: NYT reporting that they have obtained 10 years of Trump's tax info from 1985 to 1994 and that it doesn't look too good..note: these are NOT the years involving Trump Tower Moscow, so I wonder where these came from? #TuesdayThoughts…
2-Most importantly: "Over all, Mr. Trump lost so much money that he was able to avoid paying income taxes for eight of the 10 years. It is not known whether the I.R.S. later required changes after audits."
3-David K Johnston, who has seen some of Trump's 2005 tax p/w bc of a lawsuit, just said, "The NYT is the Wizard (OZ) who has just pulled back the curtain and revealed Donald Trump the con-man" #TrumpsTaxes #TuesdayThoughts

EXCLUSIVE: Emails show Trump admin had "no way to link" separated migrant kids to parents.

Top ICE official: "What you are requesting is not something that we are going to be able to complete in a rapid fashion."

More with @chrislhayes at 8ET. #inners…
@chrislhayes The *exact same day* the Trump administration was assuring the American public there was a "central database" that would be used to reunite thousands of migrant families, emails between officials show they only had data on 60. #inners

Read the emails:…
@chrislhayes In recent interviews, Trump's acting DHS Secretary, @DHSMcAleenan, has said families "were always intended to be reunited."

But these e-mails between Trump's current acting ICE director and HHS sure look *nothing* like that. #inners

💥AG Barr's letter to Congress: "Robert Mueller has concluded his investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election and related matters…I may be in a position to advise of the Special Counsel’s principal conclusions as soon as this weekend” via @etuckerAP #MuellerReport
The #MuellerReport was skewed in Trump's favor from the start b/c Mueller can't indict Trump & he can't disclose non-indictable wrongdoing. Congress has taken up that broader universe of fact-finding. Notably, Trump hasn't provided a single document. Many investigations continue.
As I said from Mueller's 1st days, focusing solely on criminal conduct misses a whole host of unprecedented wrongdoing we don't even have vocabulary for let alone laws against. Trump campaign's conduct w/ Russia may not be indictable, but is wrong & threatens national security.
