On Nov 7, Trump fired Sessions & installed Whitaker.
On Nov 8, Rupert Murdoch called on Mitch McConnell after hours.
"It was not widely known among White House staff that Whitaker commented repeatedly on Mueller's investigation in interviews & on TV -- which is ironic given this is what drew Trump to him and raises continued questions over the depth of the administration's vetting process."
Acting attorney general Matthew Whitaker said judges should be Christian, with a "biblical view of justice," and proposed blocking non-religious people from judicial appointments theguardian.com/us-news/2018/n…
Reminder that Mueller's #TrumpRussia investigation, unlike Trump's businesses, actually turned a profit.
Imagine how much revenue House probes into Trump's tax frauds, foreign government kickbacks, Mar-a-Lago junkets, etc could generate for American taxpayers.💰
This is also newly relevant, with Democratic control of the House committees: Jared & Ivanka transferred official government emails to Trump's business server to evade scrutiny, with possible national security implications (esp vis-a-vis Saudi Arabia)
"The scheme was brought to the special counsel's attention by a woman alleging that she herself had been offered roughly $20,000 by a GOP activist named Jack Burkman “to make accusations of sexual misconduct and workplace harassment against Robert Mueller” theatlantic.com/amp/article/57…

Flashback (3): Press Sec Sean Spicer claims Assad is worse than Hitler
– "Hitler didn't even sink to using chemical weapons"
– ok he did, but "not on his own people"
– Assad used gas on people in their own homes, unlike Hitler's "Holocaust centers" nytimes.com/2017/04/11/us/…
When Trump calls old friends on one of his iPhones, American intelligence reports indicate that Chinese spies are often listening — and putting to use invaluable insights into how to best work the president and affect administration policy #butheremails nytimes.com/2018/10/24/us/…
"Trump’s aides have repeatedly warned him his calls are not secure, and that Russian spies are also eavesdropping on them, but he refuses to give up his iPhones.
WH officials say they can only hope he refrains from discussing classified information"
"American spy agencies had learned that China and Russia were eavesdropping on the president’s cellphone calls from human sources inside foreign governments and intercepting communications between foreign officials."
“I see Rick Scott wearing that Navy hat everywhere he goes. Governor, this hat represents what the Navy stands for: honor & integrity. My question for you sir, where’s yours?”
@votevets slams Scott's defrauding of the military's health care program #FLSen
A trust blind in name only: @FLGovScott transferred many assets to his wife and neither “blinded” nor disclosed them. And their investments – which mirror each other – included corporations and funds that stood to benefit from his administration’s actions nyti.ms/2QQ6uAc

"Some have argued that this election should be a referendum on Trump. We disagree. This is about Congress, which has abdicated its constitutional duty and has failed to provide a check and balance to the executive branch" #iapolitics
“In his almost 16 years in Congress, @SteveKingIA has passed exactly 1 bill as primary sponsor, redesignating a post office. He won’t debate his opponent & rarely holds public town halls. Instead, he spends his time meeting with fascist leaders in Europe and retweeting neo-Nazis”
Turkey has concluded that Jamal #Khashoggi, a prominent journalist from Saudi Arabia, was killed in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul earlier this week by a 15-member Saudi team sent “specifically for the murder" washingtonpost.com/world/middle_e…
"#Khashoggi visited the consulate to obtain documents related to his upcoming wedding.
The killing, if confirmed, would mark a stunning escalation of Saudi Arabia’s effort to silence dissent, rounding up clerics, business execs & women’s rights advocates"
"The initial assessment of the Turkish police is that Mr. #Khashoggi has been killed at the consulate of Saudi Arabia in Istanbul. We believe that the murder was premeditated and the body was subsequently moved out of the consulate." reuters.com/article/us-sau…
