Rachel is hyperventilating about the DOJ without - imo - having any basis for thinking that Garland's not doing things. This is hard for me to watch, especially because I so rarely watch the news live any more for this very reason.
FFS. Now Rachel's saying that Dems wasted time on negotiating infrastructure. That's bs. Everyone knows that this wasn't going to work - it was all a negotiating stance and for that reason, not a waste. Now reconciliation can happen.
I've gotta say that I've never liked Rachel less than I like her tonight.

Re DOJ and voting rights: "Nothing happened" after voting laws in various states have passed. Gee, how long have the two assistants to Garland been in office? Asst AG Gupta? Six whole weeks
Barb M said stuff on Maddow, but failed to discuss the actual defamation cases brought against federal employees who spoke about personal matters whose statements WERE SAID TO BE WITHIN THEIR SCOPE OF EMPLOYMENT. These are the cases at issue - not the postal employee drag racing.

@mboorstein Michelle - I've read the brief. (Full disclosure, I'm a lawyer)
The brief doesn't say the DOJ will "vigorously" defend what the colleges are doing. It was QUOTING the colleges' brief.
@mboorstein What the DOJ was doing was pretty standard in opposing a motion to intervene - saying "we got this" doesn't mean "we will argue your viewpoint." In particular, DOJ said in the brief that Dept of Educ is just now setting its regulations to implement Pres Biden's Exec Order 14,021
@mboorstein There's even a footnote in the DOJ's brief that specifically addresses the entire premise of your article -

DOJ says ~ "we haven't responded substantively to anything. When we do and if we diverge, come back later - this motion to intervene is premature."

While I was busy giggling over Senate Budget this evening, the Matt Gaetz news just got weirder and worse. Megan Zalonka (right⬇️) was given a no-show Seminole Co contract by Greenberg in '18. She was also a spokesperson for a med marijauna association.
Zalonka, who the DB tried unsucessfully to speak to for the past 5 weeks, is "part of a probe into whether Gaetz was provided with sex from escorts in exchange for political favors." There's a 2019 event where, in an after party, Gaetz & Zalonka allegedly did coke and had sex.
Gaetz, who I still can't believe is an attorney because he's so damn criminally reckless, actually communicated with Zalonka as recently as March of this year.

I am making myself lol on this fine Friday.
Ms. Purity's lesson of the day: When you bring the receipts every single day and those receipts are 99% accurate, you have a *lot* of credibility.
Let's just say that Joe Biden and I are somewhat different types of Irish-Americans. The election of 2016 will be on my (non-existent)* headstone.

This bod is going to medical research for sure.

White House: "Neera Tanden will be Senior Chief Liaison between the White House & the Senate Budget Committee. All communications from the Committee to the White House will go through her office first. Ms Tanden will then decide what should be forwarded to the Cabinet and POTUS."
I think my work here is done. DemoRATS unite!
Here's another! Uh-oh SSI will be GONE😱
