#SusanCollins 10-7-19: #Barr was right to determine "the President had not broken the law" b/c #Mueller didn't weigh in on obstruction. In fact, Mueller's Vol 2 is entirely devoted to the case against Trump on multiple obstruction charges (see below). #TheyKnew #mepolitics thread
In a letter to me dated 10/7/2019, #SusanCollins claimed that #Mueller didn't determine whether Trump obstructed justice.

In fact, Mueller writes, "If we had confidence ... that the President clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state."
#SusanCollins, like #Barr, lied about the contents of Vol 2 of the #Mueller Report. It was entirely & explicitly devoted to preserving evidence of Trump's obstruction while memories were fresh so that future prosecutors would have it available after he leaves office.

"He didn't talk about law enforcement," says @POTUS of the #DemocraticConvention nomination acceptance speech by @JoeBiden. "China was never mentioned in any way, shape or form." Image

The @POTUS speech is taking place in a crowded ballroom. "There are very few mask wearers in attendance and doesn’t seem to be much in the way of social distancing," notes radio pool reporter @ayesharascoe.

What have false assumptions about rx #opioids cost people in #pain? Damn near everything.

@Brian_Goldstone's report ought to be required reading for every #PCP & every legislator who wants to play doctor. #MedicalTwitter harpers.org/archive/2018/0…
For 4 yrs, an rx #opioid let Austin Sell escape the cage of pain, care for his kids, study to become a physician asst to help others w/ #ChronicPain. Then lawmakers in DC imposed a limit on what his clinic could prescribe. "And that was it. The app'ment lasted about 10 minutes."
Dr @StefanKertesz told @Harpers: “In a time of incredible tragedy, there’s a desire for something simple to latch onto as a way of explaining it. A story that has a clear-cut villain, with doctors as dupes and patients as innocent victims, is about as easy to sell as any story.”

1/Good morning-here is a snapshot of #COVID19 in #Maine right now. @MEPublicHealth is reporting 3757 total cases (+20). Of those, 3357 are confirmed (+23) and 400 are probable (-3).

NO MASKS OR SOCIAL DISTANCING REQUIRED AT EXCLUSIVE #MAINE SUMMER CAMP: 250 out-of-state kids, ages 7-16, (many from #COVIDー19 hotspots) showed up at Camp Wekeela in the Oxford County town of Hartford (a few miles from my home) on July9 &10. vimeo.com/439409140/5389…
A week later, camp owner Ephram Caflun posted this video, of him -- mask-less -- addressing the campers in the dining hall, proclaiming “We are 100 percent negative.” With that, many of the kids and staff removed their masks, some tossing them in the air.
A 5-week camp session is $11,000 + bus fees ($340 from Logan, $250 from the Portland Jetport) + airfare. In a FB post 3 weeks ago, Caflun said, “Our staff will fight for and defend the campers’ rights to benefit, learn and learn from this rite of passage - the camp experience.”

Let me tell you a bit about #COVID19 in #Maine. First, you may think of Maine as a rural state, and largely it is, but not entirely. We have a good-size city with an international airport in #Portland, and the southern tip (where I live) is considered part of greater #Boston 1/
Seriously, lots of people in town commute home and back daily. So.... not the sticks. Our #COVID19 case count is still considered "falling". Currently, businesses strictly regulate how many customers can be inside at any one time (number varies w/ business size). 2/
There is literally a person with a counter sitting outside every door keeping track. You wait in line outside until it is your turn if they are at capacity. There is colored or reflective tape at six foot intervals to facilitate safely waiting in line. The same is true inside. 3/

Women & girls in US #prisons & #jails are provided a limited number of tampons or pads monthly. The quality is so poor, women end up making their own, since products in commissaries are priced above retail & people in prison earn an average $1/day. >thread motherjones.com/crime-justice/…
AZ charges prisoners $4 to see a doctor & requires women get a dr's note before providing them more than the basic limit of pads or tampons.

NC prisoners pay $5 to see the nurse before getting approval to see the doctor for $5 more.

Prisoners earn an average $1/day.
“When I’m making 9 cents [an hour] after tax, you really got to think if I want to put my whole month’s income into hopefully being approved for extra pads, if they believe I deserve them,” Adrienne Kitcheyan told AZ lawmakers (Mother Jones 2/2019).

'La mitad de las mentiras de un irlandés son ciertas', asegura un dicho anónimo. Al hilo de #ElHombreTraquilo, recién emitida en @la2_tve, y a través de siete películas irlandesas de su director vamos a ver cuánto hay de verdad en las mentiras de #JohnFord
@fordianos #Thequietman
John Ford no nació en #Irlanda, sino en Cape Elizabeth, #Maine (allá por 1894). Tampoco era tuerto, aunque al final de su vida llevara un parche en un ojo (operado de cataratas, no le hacía falta). Ni si quiera se llamaba #JohnFord.
#TwitterCultural #Cinema
Hijo de inmigrantes irlandeses, le bautizaron como John Martin Feeney, aunque solía decir que su verdadero nombre, en gaélico, era Sean Aloysius O'Fearna. (Ahí le tenéis con la pipa, otro de los objetos de los que no se separaba, junto al pañuelo que mordisqueaba en los rodajes).

#SusanCollins is on the #SenateIntelligenceCommittee. I contacted her 12+ times over 6 months to get the answer to 1 Q: Does @SenatorCollins agree w/ #Mueller that Trump could've been charged w/ multiple counts of obstruction if not president?

A: No. She agrees w/ Barr. /thread
#SusanCollins: #Mueller didn't determine whether Trump obstructed justice.

#Mueller: Vol 2 "summarizes our obstruction-of-justice investigation of the President." Evidence was gathered "while memories were fresh" b/c a "President does not have immunity after he leaves office."
#SusanCollins: #Barr was right to clear Trump.

#Mueller: "If we had confidence...that the President
clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state." This report "does not exonerate him" (Vol 2 p 2 & p 182).
