Simple question. Can anyone name a worse public servant than AG Bill Barr? Trump excepted of course. I can't.

"Many years ago, Barr's father hired Epstein to teach at the private Dalton school, with no college degree."
So, a top New York school hired an unqualified teacher who was also a pervert. This is another case in which AG Barr should recuse.https://t.co/3LPL8AM68M

“It was supposed to be an exclusive party at Mar-a-Lago, Donald J. Trump’s members-only club in Palm Beach, Fla. But other than the two dozen or so women flown in to provide the entertainment, the only guests were Mr. Trump and Jeffrey Epstein.” https://t.co/Mg1eBP3Nys

National Enquirer owner David Pecker should be subpoenaed to testify before the House Judiciary Committee. He obviously has tales to tell.

Because Trump is incapable of siding with female victims of male abusers. He must insist that women/girls accusations, no matter how well documented are false and that he/all men are victims. Any wonder why women are fleeing the GOP?

Acosta gave Jeffrey Epstein, serial abuser and child sex trafficker, a sweetheart plea deal.
Now the full costs of this miscarriage of justice are coming to light—and Trump "feels bad" for Acosta.
Yet again we see: In Trump's world, money talks—and women and girls don't matter. https://t.co/7FZ44erEzM

I suspect Boris Johnson will still win, but I will say this; I can't recall anyone becoming PM having given so little idea as to how he will actually respond to the challenges he will really face.

Attenborough is right to raise the issue of social unrest resulting from climate change. In 2016 there was huge political turbulence when 1m people came to Europe from Syria / Iraq. Some estimates say there will be 250m climate refugees by 2050. Imagine. pic.twitter.com/Cj5vYEIZqb

Rip Torn was Sissy Spacek’s cousin, Geraldine Page’s husband, got into a knife fight with Dennis Hopper, was arrested for robbing a bank and took the Larry Sanders job because he owed his family “a lot of money.” This @THR obituary is….quite something. https://t.co/SyNuuZtIWD
