1/ **Below quotes by Alexander Hamilton, unless indicated otherwise.
“A nation which can prefer disgrace to danger is prepared for a master, and deserves one.”
2/ “…When a man unprincipled in private life desperate in his fortune, bold in his temper…—despotic in his ordinary demeanour—known to have scoffed in private at the principles of liberty—when such a man is seen to mount the hobby horse of popularity…
3/ …—to join in the cry of danger to liberty—to take every opportunity of embarrassing the General Government & bringing it under suspicion—to flatter and fall in with all the non sense of the zealots of the day…

Trump's losing it again.. all day long
Here's the WaPo fact check @ Trump's untrue claims
Wonder how long it'll take Joe Scarborough to sue Trump because of this tweet..
2-"The circumstances of Klausutis’s death have spawned conspiracy theories, but authorities never suspected foul play. Her death is not an unsolved mystery or a cold case waiting for answers. Klausutis’s death on July 20, 2001, was ruled accidental and the police concluded
3-"there was no reason to further investigate. A police investigator told The Post in 2017 that authorities had left “no stone unturned.” PolitiFact has given Trump’s claim its worst rating, “Pants on Fire.” ~WaPo

A thread with some thoughts on today #trump arguments at #SCOTUS:

The #mazars case was first--deals with the House Oversight Committee subpoenas for financial information. Important to remember: these were subpoenas to Trump accountants for info that preceded his Presidency. 1/
#SCOTUS liberal wing almost certain to unify in favor of the House and enforcement of subpoena. Question will come as to conservatives.

I thought Alito was most strident in questioning the subpoena's legitimacy. Thomas' questions were more reserved, but he seemed to agree. 2/
Kavanaugh was more equivocal, but he didn't ask anything that gave away a position. I expect him to fall in line with Alito/Thomas.

Roberts is a question mark. Tough questions for both sides and seemed to want a balance of positions. I don't think he was thrilled with... 3/

Alito is the worst. I mean both as a lawyer and judge. #TrumpTaxReturns
PS/ Alito actually asked a prosecutor whether—in the absence of a POTUS showing *any* burden in him turning over tax records already compiled—SCOTUS couldn't force a prosecutor to wait until the POTUS leaves office. This man *knows better*. He understands criminal investigations.
PS2/ Fortunately, under questioning by Justice Sotomayor, the New York Attorney General had a chance to in *detail* underscore how absolutely *insane* Alito's questioning was—and completely counter to *everything* Alito says about prosecutors when the defendant is poor and black.

s/o to Justice Breyer, who is screaming at Trump's lawyers in the #TrumpTaxReturns case currently being heard in #SCOTUS
“it's difficult to imagine a scenario" where the power applies is such a weak argument. Let's not "imagine" anything - in this extraordinary case of obstruction, that reaches the upper limit of imagination, what applies? #TrumpTaxReturns #SCOTUS
Also, Trump's lawyer is currently arguing that Congress has "not very much" and "very limited power" to encroach upon the presidency. If that was true, why is this case even being heard? Wouldn't there be abundant caselaw saying as such?

No. There's not. #TrumpTaxReturns #SCOTUS

THREAD is Cyrus Vance, Jr. and what is he trying to do to Donald #Trump?
/2 Cy Vance, Jr is the son of Cyrus Vance ... big shoes to fill ... and was SOS under the Jimmy Carter administration.
3/ He resigned over Operation Eagle Claw, which was a mission to free the Iran Hostages in 1980. The events of that aborted mission ultimately leased to needed change within the military in helicopter training, etc, but I digress.

Today my 12 year old asked me why people still support trump. I answered that I really didn’t know. Later, while mowing the yard, I thought about it and came up with several reasons.
As I thought about it, I realized that a lot of the reasons sounded like things various characters from the Office would think. Here’s what I came up with:

COMEY MEMOS: (THREAD) Working my way through the 15 pages of #ComeyMemos. Here are the most important and/or shocking revelations: 1/
During #Comey's 1/6/17 at Trump Tower, @Comey told Trump that the Russians allegedly had tapes involving Trump & prostitutes at a Moscow hotel in 2013. Could these be the infamous #PeeTapes? #ComeyMemos 2/
Trump also praised #Comey on 1/6/17 for his handling of the #ClintonEmails investigation. @realDonaldTrump lavished praise on @Comey, indicating that Comey had conducted himself "honorably" and had a great reputation. #ComeyMemos 3/
