A significant proportion of the #British population now support a vote on the deal, and it is patently clear why: Tory negotiations have been shambolic and impact reports have exposed the devastating repercussions of #Brexit. https://t.co/lzBGBVDeDu

Over dinner at Mar-a-Lago, Giuliani says Trump floated him joining the legal team because he wanted his advice. Giuliani told him, "Look, I'll give it to you anyway.”
He’s joining the team as an unpaid volunteer, taking a leave of absence from his firm.https://t.co/FjO9v1L5rT

One thing that puzzles me is the motivation of Trump’s enablers. I can’t tell if they’re so lacking in self-awareness as to think they’d tolerate any of this if his rival had won, or if they hold the sinister view that norms and ethics don’t matter when their side holds power.

Ivanka Trump’s business is now selling clothing directly on its website. "We’re making it easier than ever for you to shop with us," it said. It’s also making it easier for Ivanka to make a profit while serving as a White House official.https://t.co/8t7VPB7hai

There's a pervasive sense that the walls are closing in on @realDonaldTrump, that he's wandering the White House in a rage, that his presidency is in imminent jeopardy. I think that's overblown. He strikes me as someone confident that his knack for self-preservation will prevail.

As Republicans in Congress line up to help Trump obstruct justice, think for a minute about what is going on, and what it says about the state of the GOP. These guys are hacks and apparatchiks, most of whom know nothing about policy. But they're not idiots 1/
