"Kyle now has the best legal representation in the country."
Kyle Rittenhouse’s legal team has released a statement on the Kenosha shooting that left two dead, and said he isn’t a racist or a white supremacist.
It sounds like they are 100% geared up for a fight. https://t.co/NQrEBt0S6W

If you believed the polls when Biden was up big, believe them now when there is a real tightening.
The reason there is a real tightening is because Donald Trump just launched 1000 missiles in 4 days without a real response.
That evil, gross & ridiculous 4-day circus show worked

I asked an unmasked Trump rally attendee if she was worried about COVID. “I’m really not. I’m 74, I’ve had all the tests. I’m fine,” she said. “I don't know anybody that’s had it. So, we’ll see, but I don’t think there’s going to be any problems.” https://t.co/uRugKGk3Fq

Legal experts and Justice Department veterans say it's not the attorney general's job to engage in partisan politics. But with his statements attacking Trump's opponents, they say William Barr is doing exactly that.

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence informed congressional committees on Intelligence that it'll no longer be briefing on election security issues, a senior administration official told CNN. It'll provide written updates, the official said. https://t.co/fF3m4Dlh8g pic.twitter.com/ov4i2mreVj

The ODNI has cancelled all further briefings on foreign election interference.
The Administration clearly does not want Congress or the country informed of what Russia is doing.
The last DNI was fired for doing so, and the IC has now been fully brought to heel.

Nope, wrong. It should worry all Members of Congress—or at least those who want the nuance and detail—that they’re not able to pose basic follow-up questions on perhaps the most important subject. It’s also why Executive Branch principals have briefers rather than drop books. https://t.co/QOQmdR48W4

Austerity has already reduced government spending to the level where core parts of civil society – justice, care, local government – are collapsing. So tax hikes it is. It will have to be a tax on assets as wage levels are too low to support a VAT or income tax hike pic.twitter.com/hd3ugkKoOt

Brexit hasn't started yet. While the standstill period lasts all EU laws stay in place. Those who still take so many EU benefits for granted are in for a big shock.
