This is significant: Trump's business negotiations were happening with Putin’s office directly, not just with real estate developers in Moscow https://t.co/yDetuxxM9R

"The president of the United States' personal lawyer admitted to lying to Congress about the president’s business activities with a hostile foreign power, in order to support the president's story. In any rational era, that would be earthshaking…" https://t.co/e4g1lfmbLq

Why did Cohen lie? Because the truth is evidence that Trump was compromised by Russia while Putin plotted to attack the election. (Offering Trump "lucrative real estate" deals was part of the Kremlin's "cultivation operation" for Trump, per the dossier.) https://t.co/sEOgPLI5rn

Looks like Don Jr is in hot water:
WSJ now reporting: “Investigators obtained emails about the project from late 2015 and January 2016…in which Mr. Cohen communicated with or copied Mr. Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., and his daughter, Ivanka Trump”
Compare Don Jr told Senate: https://t.co/3ABZQow3Q9

Cohen's plea casts Trump's campaign praise for Putin in a different light. He's praising the man he's trying to make a deal with. And his words had an impact: https://t.co/bFqAS6sM6H

How did Rudy Giuliani get leaked information that James Comey was reopening the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails? A leak from an FBI employee could be a crime. We’ve requested documents. https://t.co/k5nQ0kfJq4

Don’t forget this…
In 2016, the Republican leadership discussed Donald Trump being paid by Vladimir Putin and the possibility of Russian interference in U.S. election.

Lots of people look really bad today in Trumpland, including @RepDevinNunes, who will go down in history as an obstructionist who attempted to defeat the mission of the very intelligence committee he chaired—in the service of criminals and the government of Vladimir Putin.

There are no winners from #Brexit. The departure of the U.K. from the EU is a failure for everybody. Let us make the best of it, knowing that in the near future, there will be a new generation in Britain who will decide to come back into the European family. #IamEuropean

Two politicians who have both said the people shouldn’t get a second referendum are arguing about the terms of a televised debate in front of an audience who don’t have a vote. Our politicians are, to reprise the greatest of terms, a bunch of utter cuntpuffins and cockwombkes.

If this or any Brexit TV debate goes ahead without all options – including that of remaining in the EU – being included and given a voice, it will be an absolute travesty of democracy. @BBCNewsPR https://t.co/Na7A01CQQk

As far as I'm concerned…
A May-Corbyn debate on Brexit is going to be like watching two flat-earthers arguing over who can explain gravity better.

Go on, let us look at this gibberish.
"Under the #Brexit deal, we have agreed…"
Yes, if you have a "deal" you have agreed something, that is why it is an "agreement".

Ever ask yourself, as @JustineGreening did today, how the people can undermine the will of the people?
Of course, we can't – but some want you to think we can, because they know if we look at this again we'll likely save ourselves the hassle.#EndTheChaoshttps://t.co/4z8serXJLG

In other entertainment news…
Newsnight Vicar was booked by agency that supplies representative focus groups. She asked to wear a dog collar. Newsnight never otherwise said she was a reverend. Antidisestablishmentarianists in my mentions arguing only C of E vicars should be allowed to wear dog collars on BBC.

For those still interested here’s our statement from earlier on why Newsnight had a member of the public come on to participate in a debate about Brexit. The fact Lynn is a pastor and does some acting on the side was totally irrelevant to the discussion. https://t.co/3KppyEnv7Z

Uncanny, John Maynard Keynes: imagining the super-prosperous 21st century, he speculated in 1930 that "a hundred years hence" we would be "8 times better off in the economic sense." And here we are, still 12 years shy of 2030, with a per capita GDP 7 times what it was then.

An open response to an interview I was asked to do last week.
Magazines like this constantly reduce women to what they eat. I am not a dress size. I am not a number on a scale. I am done with a media that profits from the insecurities of women.
Wonder if they’ll print it? pic.twitter.com/aXy3d1DyCR
