The evidence of Iran’s attack on the ships is strong. We should be leading an international effort to protect the seas and reduce the risk of conflict. Instead, Trump policies have left us isolated, and the region unstable. The maximum pressure campaign has failed. Maximally.

What is the President hiding in his tax returns? And since when does “shall” mean “unless it displeases Trump”? And, perhaps more importantly: What will be left of DOJ’s independence and reputation for impartial justice after Barr? The answer? Very little.

Kevin McCarthy has a lot of advice for Democrats leading investigations of Trump malfeasance. This, from the guy that said the Benghazi committee was a success if it hurt Clinton’s poll numbers. The hypocrisy takes your breath away. He should stick to sorting Starbursts.

Sorry, Mr. President, wrong again. You eagerly took foreign help in the 2016 election and want it again. When a foreign national offered info relevant to our investigation — not election — we informed the FBI before and after the call. It’s called ethics. You should try it.

When the Russians offered dirt on Clinton in 2016, the Trump campaign enthusiastically accepted. Today, the President made it clear he would do it all over again, saying everyone does it. No, they don't. Trump does nothing if not project his own lack of ethics onto others.

The protesters in the streets of Hong Kong are defending basic democratic rights. Efforts by the authorities to crack down on dissent must be resisted by all freedom-loving people. I stand with the protesters in opposing the extradition law, and the violent crackdown.

Most Americans have not read Mueller’s report. Some may be astonished to learn that a finding of “no collusion,” much less a finding of “no obstruction,” is nowhere to be seen on any page of his report. Here’s what we do know, and what we are working to find out:

On Saturday, Russian authorities detained Ivan Golunov, a prominent Russian journalist. Thankfully, today he was released, no doubt due to a solidarity campaign by civil society supporters across Russia and beyond. Stories like Ivan’s prove why we fight for global press freedom.

Beautiful letters don’t stop missile tests. Declarations of love don’t stop nuclear weapons research. Limiting intelligence gathering only blinds us to the dangers. We want results and security, not flattery of our vain president. Kim is playing Trump — and it’s working.

Denying climate change won’t make it go away. The job of the intelligence agencies is to tell policymakers the truth, not what they want to hear. And that’s what they did, despite White House efforts to muzzle them. We will get to the bottom of this.

“No Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust ... shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, ... of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.”* *Constitution does not apply to payments at Trump Hotels, with feckless GOP.

Scientific consensus is clear: climate change is happening. Now. The effects are cross-cutting and severe, with real impacts on our national security. Climate change causes resource scarcity, instability and conflict. Watch live as explores these critical issues:

30 years ago, tanks rolled into Tiananmen Square. Troops fired on protesters advocating democratic reforms. Countless lives were lost. Today, the protests and brutal suppression are largely unknown in China due to censorship. But we will keep their memory alive.

Appalled to learn of the deadly attacks on peaceful protesters by Sudanese security forces. Sudan's future hangs in the balance. The Transitional Military Council must immediately transfer governance to civilian rule and avoid civil war.

Robert Mueller has one last service to perform, and that is to answer questions for the Congress and American people. There are any number of questions that we have every right, and the American people have every need, to have answered about his investigation and what he found.

Horrified and heartbroken. Another community devastated, and families and friends in mourning. But we are not powerless. We have begun to act in the House. But those in the Senate who are blocking action and are part of the problem need to be voted out of office.

If Barr thinks Mueller could have accused Trump of a crime, then SDNY prosecutors should stop being coy about “Individual 1” and announce whether Trump should be charged with campaign finance fraud. Michael Cohen + David Pecker + recording + reimbursement checks = indictment.

It’s always been clear why the Trump Administration put a citizenship question on the 2020 Census: To decrease political representation for immigrant communities for their own partisan advantage. Now there are receipts.

Trump and Republicans claimed their tax bill would pay for itself. They were a little off. It has paid for... 5% of itself. The rest? More debt. And for what? A tax cut that made the wealthy even wealthier with stock buybacks, but did little for anyone else.
