...Russian oligarchs connected to Putin - being laundered through the bank, with the knowledge of #Kennedy's son. In other words - Kennedy's son could be esnared in the #Mueller investigation - perhaps, vulnerable to indictment himself. In this eventuality, you can be certain- /3
WE won on the ACA repeal.
There's a path to victory—just need to march there.

ICYMI, in a debate in 2016, then candidate 45 vowed that he would "put pro-life justices on the court," and that if he could place multiple justices on SCOTS, that Roe v Wade would be overturned "automatically." npr.org/2018/06/28/624…
45 & SCOTUS may think that a woman’s right to choose is a close partisan decision, 5/4 with Kennedy as the deciding vote. But It’s not even close; only 18% of Americans believe abortion should be illegal in all circumstances—has stayed steady since Roe. news.gallup.com/poll/1576/abor…
A short THREAD on a huge issue: A major thing missing to me so far in the #KennedyRetirement coverage is this: all Presidents who appoint justices might have those justices rule on their official acts, like policy initiatives or legislation. /1
But I cannot think of a prior example of a President appointing a justice who could rule on that President's personal exposure to serious criminal or civil liability. /2
Yet that's exactly what might happen here. Trump is currently under investigation on a range of fronts, from whether he obstructed justice to whether he colluded with Russia to whether his pre-presidency business dealings were on the up and up. /3
What did you do?
Did you take the punch in the #KennedyRetirement and call it a day?
Did you rage about it here or IRL?
That here is no right answer,
There is a WRONG answer.
If you had the luxury to turn of the internet and not feel the impact of yesterday, fortunate.
But if you can live in a regime targeting people who don’t get a break and go “I need a break..."
Are you okay with that?
I’’m not. #SCOTUS#KeepFamiliesTogether
What did you do last night?
I picked up dinner hearing Trumpers end zone dance over #SCOTUS.
And a million other things I disagree with.
I just wanted dinner.
