A judge ruled yesterday that prosecutors led by Labor Sec. Alex Acosta in 2008, when he was a US attorney in Florida, broke the law by concealing a plea agreement. The deal was from a sex crimes case that involved more than 30 underage victims. @jkbjournalist joins @IAmAmnaNawaz
Rep. @JoaquinCastrotx introduces the joint resolution to terminate Trump's national emergency declaration to build a border wall. Here are the 226 original cosponsors—enough votes pass the House: https://castro.house.gov/sites/castro.house.gov/files/List%20of%20Cosponsors%2C%20H.J.Res_.%2046_0.pdf …
This is how @SenFeinstein reacted to children asking her to support the #GreenNewDeal resolution -- with smugness + disrespect. This is a fight for our generation's survival. Her reaction is why young people desperately want new leadership in Congress.
This is wild.
Trump met with Kelly Craft today in Oval Office, I'm told. Pompeo and Bolton were there, too. Trump chose Craft after considering Dina Powell, Ric Grenell, and John James. Top White House aides had also discussed Ivanka Trump as possible choice.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Trump announces US Ambassador to Canada Kelly Craft is his new choice for UN envoy.
"We keep learning that there are new crimes that are allegedly committed by Trump and the coterie of people around him" @neal_katyal on release of Mueller report:
So, @SGottliebFDA, what was that you were saying about "constructive dialogue" w/ the press? #FDA spox still not answered my questions about lack of documentation/citations/links to evidence to back up his claims. Also anybody wonder how @BioCentury got the statement so quickly? https://twitter.com/DonnaYoungDC/status/1098975751381102593 …
Trump, on why he hasn't condemned GOP fraud in NC: "I condemn any election fraud & when I look at what's happened in CA with the votes...There was just a case where they found a million fraudulent votes." Reporter: "There haven't been those cases. This is an actual case, sir."

I'm very lucky to have served on the @Twitter board for 12 years (ever since there was a board). It's been overwhelmingly interesting, educational—and, at times, challenging.
Ev, who is a co-founder and a former CEO of Twitter, is stepping down from the board: https://www.cnbc.com/2019/02/22/twitter-co-founder-ev-williams-leaving-board.html …
One of the consequences of the devastating opioid crisis is that many more grandparents are now primary caregivers to their grandchildren. I sat down with grandparents and advocates today to discuss how we can better ensure that these grandfamilies are supported.
My apologies to the New York Times reporter who has been disinvited from the @VanityFair Oscar party because of my and @brooksbarnesNYT’s reporting. You’re welcome to come to my apartment to watch with me & my kids. Not a single brand exec will be there!
NEW: BURR lit up FDA chief Gottlieb on the Senate floor over plan to ban menthol cigarettes; Burr noted Gottlieb 'liked' a Tweet about Trump's falling poll numbers in hopes of getting TRUMP's attention FDA spx say the 'like' was inadvertent https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-01-31/gop-senator-lights-up-trump-s-fda-chief-on-menthol-cigarette-ban …
Two words: Menthol cigarettes. ICYMI
Just got word that Vanity Fair has disinvited The New York Times from covering their annual Oscars party. They said it "feels like the Times has already run their coverage of the VF party this year," they said. I guess we did!
Want to know the rules on what Barr can release to Congress? Excellent @ktbenner piece just up. To be clear: I think Congress CAN get even grand jury material, which would ordinarily be protected by 6(e). Courts permitted Cong to get in Watergate & others
If @SGottliebFDA & #FDA truly welcomes "constructive dialogue" w/ the press, why have they ignored questions from the press for the past month? Gottlieb talks to Gottlieb-friendly @BioCentury. But he & FDA ignore others. I've not received any responses on this from #FDA. None!
So, @SGottliebFDA, what was that you were saying about "constructive dialogue" w/ the press? #FDA spox still not answered my questions about lack of documentation/citations/links to evidence to back up his claims. Also anybody wonder how @BioCentury got the statement so quickly?
