Day 700 of NO EVIDENCE produced by Trump that his phones were tapped by Obama.
The FISA warrant Trump referenced targeted Carter Page. #TrumpLies
And we start another month of shooting deaths of women in America. Jessica Velazquez was shot to death by her husband in a murder-suicide in Texas. Two others were wounded.
This is February.

FYI: The Trump admin has quietly resumed separating immigrant families at the border.
At one agency, the children were put into temporary foster care and shelters with little or no indication that they arrived at the border with their parents: propub.li/2QcsPvY
Reminder: The Trump administration is systematically locking up thousands of children at unheard of rates - now almost 15,000 are in U.S. custody.
The government classifies these children as "unaccompanied"
Thousands more kids may have been separated from their parents at the border under the Trump administration than was previously thought, according to an internal government report.
The Trump administration said reuniting thousands of migrant children separated from their families at the border may not be "within the realm of the possible."
Remarkable passage in @TIME story about how to relay info to Trump:
To impress upon him the size of N. Korea's nuclear testing facility, the intel agencies built a model of the facility and used a miniature Statue of Liberty to provide prospective.
TRUMP talks about nuclear diplomacy like he’s trying to sell condos: “North Korea has a chance, being located between Russia, China, & South Korea — what a location. I’m in the real estate business. What a location!”
Trump on Kim Jong Un: "We have a fantastic chemistry. We have had tremendous correspondence that some people have seen and can't even believe it. They think it's historic."
It’s been 124 days since Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi was brutally murdered in Istanbul.
His family still doesn’t know what happened to his body.
It appears Trump's administration has stopped asking questions.
2019 Washington Post Super Bowl ad:
"Knowing empowers us. Knowing helps us decide. Knowing keeps us free."
13 Days remain until the temporary bill providing fiscal appropriations through February 15, 2019 expires.
If Congress & Trump do not agree on a fiscal year spending bill, government agencies will again be shut down.
Real-time fact checking of Trump.
Trump: "Basically, [Speaker Pelosi] wants open borders. She doesn't mind human trafficking or she wouldn't do this—"
Brennan: "She offered over $1 billion for border security. She doesn't want the wall."
As questions swirl about Trump’s ability to move Congress and the electorate, Pelosi will sit just behind him on the top tier of the House dais, a looming reminder of his shutdown defeat and his struggles to adapt to a new, divided Washington
Politico: Senate Appropriations chair sees ‘slim’ odds of a border agreement politico.com/story/2019/02/…
Reminder: Trump said if elected, he would never see his golf courses ... would be working all the time #TrumpLies
Trump dealt himself a political defeat with the 35-day shutdown. He has secured no funding for his wall. He is newly at odds with his intel chiefs. The Russia probe appears to be nearing its conclusion. New congressional investigations start soon.
Trump said this week that his company had not selected a Trump Tower Moscow location. But business docs, emails, texts, and architectural plans obtained show that the Trump Org. was scoping at least one prime location for his skyscraper.
Anastasia Vashukevich, the Belarusian model who claims to have information on ties between Russia and Trump's election campaign, told AP that she has turned that material over to Russian billionaire businessman Oleg Deripaska. apnews.com/22e38b86bd9f43…
A White House source has leaked nearly every day of Trump's private schedule for the past three months — and he's spent around 60% of that time in "Executive Time."
Great to visualize the scoop on Trump's schedule over the past 3 months. Tons of executive time! ->
Secretary-general of Interpol warns that ISIS is far from defeated, claiming that “the threat is more international than ever.”
Will Trump now call this "fake news"?
John Bolton calls on Venezuelan military leaders to defend the country's constitution.
This administration desperately wants a civil war. The question is why?
Acting Defense Secretary Pat Shanahan is trying out for the permanent Pentagon role, though the White House also has a list of other candidates wsj.com/articles/after…
Trump now says he wouldn't steer son Barron toward football, saying it's "a dangerous sport."
But Trump once decried the softening of the NFL, claiming, "Today, if you hit too hard: 15 yards! Throw him out of the game!...They're ruining the game!"
Flashback: Here's Trump who raved about the brutality of football on the campaign trail
Tom Nichols: "While Democrats, and decent people everywhere, have a right to demand that Northam step down, Republicans who continue to support a party dominated by Trump can’t be taken seriously on this point." washingtonpost.com/outlook/2019/0…
It’s the year 2019 — almost two decades after measles was officially eliminated in the U.S. — and yet the @Surgeon_General has to do an explainer video because there are outbreaks in at least four states.

Every president since Nixon has voluntarily given their tax returns. Trump hasn’t.
There’s a reason for that, he has a lot to hide.
