"The single largest grouping of people who are descendants of slaveholders is African Americans because of the institutionalization of rape of Black Women during slavery. Most Black Americans could say we're descendants of slaveholders." ~@jelani9 on @TheBeatWithAri w/ @AriMelber
It is obscene for @senatemajldr to compare himself to Barack Obama with respect to descendants of slaveholders. The foundation of the question of reparations is to repair the damage that was done, beginning there & passing down through successive generations. ~@jelani9 #TheBeat
It is obscene inversion of a very traumatic and morally troubling aspect of American history. Barack Obama has inherited race as a headwind; something that had to be navigated in his life. MitchMcConnell has inherited a tailwind. ~@jelani9 on McConnell comparing himself to Obama

And Mueller has the exchange.…
"Stone responded, "Get to (Assange) [a]t Ecuadorian Embassy in London and get the pending (WikiLeaks) emails."

Corsi passed the request along to conservative author Ted Malloch in London"

Appearing on #TheBeat, Randy Credico (associate of Roger Stone & Julian Assange/WikiLeaks) tells @AriMelber that Mueller's team requested an interview w/ him, but his lawyers refused the request. This is the 1st confirmation that Mueller's team has contacted Credico.
A reminder: Randy Credico (who is allegedly the intermediary between Roger Stone & Julian Assange/WikiLeaks) pleaded the fifth when he was questioned by the House Intelligence Committee.

Roger Stone claims that Randy Credico passed him info from Julian Assange/WikiLeaks.

Credico has denied Stone's claims.

During her appearance on #TheBeat, Candace Owens also said no one is talking about the gun violence in Chicago over the weekend.

We are.

--> How Mike Pence personally contributed to Chicago’s gun violence epidemic…
Chicago's gun violence problem is fueled largely by the lax gun laws in surrounding states. That includes the neighboring state of Indiana, where, as governor, Mike Pence earned an "A" rating from the NRA for enacting the gun lobby's agenda.

And to bring this full circle and pull together the debate on #TheBeat with the discussion about guns/gun violence that Candace Owens said was lacking ...

I wrote this a few months ago, on the racially disparate applications & outcomes of gun laws.…

In other words, Mueller has sufficient evidence to secure an indictment against Trump.

Good to know, Rudy.
"Getting stolen emails from a foreign intelligence service is a standard practice and totally legal" said no competent attorney, ever. #TrumpRussia
Shockingly, Giuliani was lying: Mueller said no such thing about not indicting Trump.
