"The final indignity came when Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) led Republicans’ successful effort to block a bill sponsored by Sen. Mark R. Warner (D-Va.) to require campaigns to disclose any foreign offers of assistance to the FBI." @MaxBoot https://t.co/eEnTTspkP5

Marsha Blackburn’s objection to legislation that safeguards American democracy from foreign interference is emblematic of how deep the rot runs in the Republican party, and also of the hold that Russian money has over its elected officials. https://t.co/o8Buvhy2Ys https://t.co/6vnGnZ23M1

Sources inside WH and close to Trump admit he mishandled questions on foreign dirt, @abbydphillip and I are told. The clips have been “tough” to watch, sources acknowledge. But officials doubt Trump supporters are very upset about it.

Trump on foreign dirt: "Of course you have to look at it because, if you don't look at it, you're not going to know if it's bad. How are you going to know if it's bad?"

Republicans’ inability to condemn Trump for inviting foreign manipulation of U.S. elections is one of the saddest moments of my public service.
Increasingly for Republicans, Trump comes first and America comes second. That should sicken all of us.

Read this. Every party has a reason to lie. But the owner of the oil tanker is disputing key elements of Pompeo’s Iran tanker story. Again I don’t know what happened. But I would be careless if I took Pompeo’s assessment at face value. Our allies silent. https://t.co/ZarKCVjjMm

My thoughts on the Gulf on Oman attacks for @nbc:
The speed in which Trump officially blamed Iran should give us pause, given Bolton's history in the region.

After three bloody years, & despite mountains of evidence to the contrary, a significant portion of the country remains in thrall to fact-free pantomime toffs braying that Brexit is deliverable & desirable. They won’t explain why it’s broken & can’t describe how they’ll fix it.
