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

🚨‼️Cuccinelli is a monster >> Citizenship & Immigration Services Ends Medical Deferred Action, a program allowing legal migrants to stay in US for life-saving medical treatment. They're now being referred to ICE for deportation and death. 33 days notice.…
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.

1) I listened to @AllInWithChris podcast earlier featuring the Tues 14 May 2019 episode of the show. @ChrisLHayes, @MIchelleinBklyn & @MatthewAMiller discussed what the US Attorney General & FBI should(n't) do among other topics. #Inners
2) Repeatedly stated was the FBI doesn't investigate political enemies of the POTUS, a caveat to which I'd like you 3 to consider. J Edgar Hoover was neither POTUS nor AG; he was FBI director while repeatedly using his post to disparage MLK Jr. On 19 Nov 1964, Hoover penned a...

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.

"It's his style. How he talks. Counterpuncher. It's refreshing. Authentic. He resonates w/ ppl." What a load of horsesh*t Republicans have to trot out to rationalize an abusive horse's ass POTUS from hell, spending his time watching TV, trolling the dead, endangering the living,
Trump sure keeps the propaganda machine busy. Get ready for more pathetic Republican BS on TV tonight in defense of indefensible Trump, who just now AGAIN disparaged John McCain & complained that he gave him the funeral he wanted, but never got a thank you
Trump's twitter is so full of lies, yet today he had the nerve to say he uses it for "honesty." Like a rotten onion, you keep peeling only to find more odious rot behind each layer. At some point you have to realize it's rotten to the core. #inners #maddow

Here’s the transcript of @chrislhayes asking @SenSanders to define *socialism* on @allinwithchris #inners

Hayes: I wanna ask you about #socialism. There’s an email that just went out in the last few days from the Trump campaign, which, of course, is already up & running.
Hayes:...”It’s a fundraising email. It says, ‘@SenSanders announced he will be running for president with a very simple platform: FULL-BLOWN SOCIALISM—not partial socialism—full blown socialism. You’ve called yourself a socialist for years. It’s been a question, interestingly...
Hayes: ...on the campaign trail. Other candidates have said they’re not socialists—they’re capitalists— but there’s this debate that has ensued about, “what does that mean?” A lot of Conservatives have pointed to Venezuela and said, “food shortages, increasing authoritarianism...

Late in El Paso but wanted to share few things I brought up on @chrislhayes' special.

Trump's idea of an emergency is a completely foreign idea here.

People of El Paso *are* people of Juarez.

100K go between the cities daily for work and school -- saw it live tonight. #inners
To understand why we're here, understand one word: deterrence.

It's been bipartisan US border policy for decades, starting with Clinton.

Doesn't work.

Yes, crossings dropped, but deaths increased as migrants took more dangerous journeys here.

Trump wants more of it. #inners
Our only border "crisis" is a *humanitarian* one of large groups of asylum seekers crossing in deadly, remote areas.


If Trump actually wanted to know, he'd put resources towards processing them legally, not into metering, nor DoD and CBP shows-of-force. #inners

THREAD: @MayaWiley, I appreciate your comments last night on #Inners with @ChrisLHayes et. al. about possible down-the-road consequences of medical students' racist acts – such as Northam's blackface ordeal – in developing healthcare management plans for African American patient.
2) The narrative around "oh they were just kids" is dangerous. Those "kids" go on to become adults with immense decision making power & social capital, yet their biases in how they create/navigate the healthcare sector does not undergo such evolution. How do I know?
3) The health outcomes of people parodied by the likes of Northam via racist acts are the same people consistently experiencing adverse health outcomes – the reality of which are not solely based on *poor choices* but also various forms of hostility faced in the healthcare sector

Some of the news in today's #TrumpRussia avalanche:
-Mueller investigation close to completion—Whitaker
-Cohen to testify to House Feb 8, w/ new legal team
-Manafort sentencing hearing delayed
-Trump doesn't rule out pardon for Roger Stone
-Barr discussed Mueller probe w/ Pence
Watch #Whitaker sweat up a storm announcing he’s been “fully briefed” on Mueller investigation & “thinks” it’s “close to being completed.” Seems very anxious to get his hands on it to “review.” And Wray? They look like my kids up to no good. #maddow #inners
It's alarming Whitaker's even commenting on the Mueller investigation/report. Is he pressing or hoping for no more indictments? The "review decisions" remark is very alarming. Is he saying someone's reviewing HIS decisions? Or that he's (already?) reviewing Mueller's decisions??

>> BOOM >> Mueller has evidence Manafort shared polling data about the 2016 presidential election with Russian intel asset Kilimnik. And lied about it. His lawyers bungled redactions in filing and here we are. #TrumpRussia #Conspiracy #Collusion #RussiaGate #MuellerInvestigation
My favorite part so far (paraphrasing): OK, so Manafort shared [presidential polling data] with Kilimnik. But why assume he lied when he failed to tell Mueller? He just forgot! He was so busy! After all, he was running a US presidential campaign. He can't remember EVerything. lol
Not only is NO COLLUSION a big lie. There’s so damn much collusion, it’s more like TREASON. We learned today 1) Manafort met Russian agent Kilimnik in Madrid during campaign, 2) Paulie shared polling data w/ him, & 3) They discussed “Ukrainian peace plan.” While Russia attacked.

Mueller's office re Flynn: "Given the defendant's SUBSTANTIAL ASSISTANCE ...a sentence at the low end of the guideline range—including a sentence that does not impose a term of incarceration—is appropriate and warranted."
Flynn Sentencing Memo: Flynn provided firsthand info re the content & context of interactions between the TRUMP TRANSITION TEAM and Russian government officials – including about the DEC 2016 UN Security Council vote criticizing Israel.

By raging he's being framed by a Clinton revenge plot conspiracy, Kavanaugh echoed Trump propagandists discrediting Mueller & Russia probe. That in itself is disqualifying from sitting on the Supreme Court. It also proves he won't be an impartial arbiter on those & other matters.
Forget the alleged sexual assault & lies for a moment. Kavanaugh's partisan rant about a left-wing smear conspiracy is so off-the-rails improper for someone whose job is literally to DISPASSIONATELY & fairly interpret facts & law before him. And he wants a promotion to SCOTUS??
Maybe #Kavanaugh's not a conspiracy theorist. But he is consciously echoing Trump. He altered strategy from choir-boy Fox interview b/c Trump didn't like it. Kav's already bending to the executive who named him, like the political operative he is at heart. And will be on SCOTUS.

Whoa: Someone inside Trump Admin wrote an anonymous op-ed saying insiders are thwarting him: “I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration. We work for the president but we have vowed to thwart parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations”…
Senior Trump official: "Our duty is to this country, and the president continues to act in a manner that is detrimental to the health of our republic. [We] vowed to do what we can to preserve our democratic institutions…[He's] amoral, impetuous, adversarial, petty, ineffective."
Exasperated Trump admin officials admit their daily disbelief at Trump’s comments and actions. “Most are working to insulate their operations from his whims.” This @nytimes op-ed confirms the Woodward book’s remarkable details of Trump’s unfitness & danger to the country.

If Republicans think they're doing Trump's bidding, that's only half the story. They're doing Putin's bidding. Instead of praising Bruce Ohr for fighting Russian organized crime, they try to discredit him and his work. This is why people call GOP traitors.…
Comey, McCabe, Strzok, now Ohr. Republicans say it's no coincidence Bruce Ohr was at the center of much in the Russia probe. Well, duh, he investigates Russian organized crime, and Putin's runs a mafia state, so yeah, no coincidence.… #inners #maddow
#Maddow reviews stellar career of Bruce Ohr leading investigations of Russian organized crime, including top criminal Mogilevich. Ohr was also one of the officials to revoke Deripaska's US visa. And now he's the object of conspiracy theories on right-wing media on a 24-hour loop.
