When it comes to crime prevention, few are more knowlegeable & progressive than Kamala Harris. She was a reformer as both DA & AG of CA. She started a program that reduced recidivism by 40%, creating employment & educational opportunities.

A good reminder from @McFaul: #MuellerReport is not the definitive account of Russia's interference operation. Perhaps we need one.  https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2019/04/19/russia-attacked-us-mueller-report-still-doesnt-give-us-full-story/ …

This is Emerson. He’s just trying to transport his large leaf. Not sure why obstacles were put in his way. 14/10 we believe in you buddy

Since @realDonaldTrump is insisting that only high crimes and misdemeanors can lead to impeachment, I'd encourage reading the 1974 impeachment inquiry from the House Judiciary Committee: https://www.nytimes.com/1974/02/22/archives/excerpts-from-impeachment-study-by-house-aides-washington-feb-21.html …

Surface-level but there’s an adage about crafting persuasive presentations: 1) Tell ‘em what you’re going to tell ‘em 2) Tell ‘em 3) Tell ‘em what you told them Summarize —> explain —> reprise the summary Klobuchar is all *explain*. Takes a long road get to a point. Inductive.

Quoted @yashar

The Supreme Court announced on Monday that it would decide whether a federal law prohibits employers from discriminating against gay and transgender workers. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/22/us/politics/supreme-court-gay-transgender-employees.html …

The fate of LGBTQ protections rests in the hands of a SCOTUS deprived of the two justices the rightful Democratic president would have appointed. Anyone in 2019 still defending staying home or voting third party is dead to me.

Quoted @jakenuts

Sorry, I said the facts were widely reported and then simplified what they were. I can confirm that “funneled donations through book sales” is not included in any of the reports.

So you hated a First Lady, Senator and Secretary of state with Hillary Clinton making $250k per speech but Bernie Sanders spending campaign funds of $444k on buying his own books is totally fine with you?

Just a reminder that the president of the United States paid hush money to a pornstar right before the election and lied about doing it and it probably wouldn’t even make the top ten list of his most impeachable offenses.

Quoted @CharlesMBlow

This is in honor of #NigelShelby, the 15-yo Huntsville, Alabama boy who committed suicide on Good Friday due to homophobic bullying. Sadly, I wrote this 10 yrs ago this month after two 11-year-old boys, also children of color, hang themselves to death due to homophobic bullying.

This is just sad. This is not about one side toughening up, it's about humanizing people of all ages. This is nothing new, there is an actual uptick in suicide in the lgbt community among our adolescents. Households, schools and communities need to take this growing epidemic.

"Don't go to a college you can't afford" is a polite way of telling poor people to stay in the station they were born into.

And not all that polite tbh

Pelosi call with Dems on impeachment just wrapped (or ending soon), @RepRaskin talking to @SteveKornacki now on @MSNBC

On @hardball, @RepRoKhanna says Pelosi told her colleagues impeachment can’t be about what the polls say & that they will follow the facts.

Quoted @realDonaldTrump

Isn’t it amazing that the people who were closest to me, by far, and knew the Campaign better than anyone, were never even called to testify before Mueller. The reason is that the 18 Angry Democrats knew they would all say ‘NO COLLUSION’ and only very good things!

MUELLER, p. 117: "Trump Jr ... declined to be voluntarily interviewed."

Quoted @KFILE

NEW story: Trump's Fed pick Stephen Moore wrote four separate times women shouldn't be allowed to announce men's basketball games. Moore also wrote women should be banned from refereeing men's games and mocked reader's who complained he was sexist. https://www.cnn.com/2019/04/22/politics/stephen-moore-federal-reserve-kfile/index.html …

So much of moment conservatism is rooted in the fear of girls because they’re icky.

We saw historically high voter turnout in 2018 thanks to @TheDemocrats' organizing & outreach work. In response, the @GOP is trying to make it harder to vote. We need to work twice as hard to make sure everyone can show up to the polls in 2020.

Russian government/intel is perfectly capable of helping a target & compromising the target at the same time. Happens all the time. Why don't Trump supporters at least entertain the hypothesis that Putin wanted Trump to win AND to be compromised, deemed illegitimate, weak.

On D impeachment call, Rep. Ro Khanna tells @MSNBC that someone asked about polling and "Nancy Pelosi cut him off and ... said, 'Look this is not going to be a political decision. We've been called by history—this is a duty, we need to make the case."
