After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence. blog.bird.trom.tf/en_us/topic…

Every time trump tells this lie—the one that incited insurrection—it needs to be said that he’s a traitor who attacked the country while he was president and never conceded and told the attackers he loves them and to remember this day like the openly anti-American insurgent he is
In interview with Mike Lindell airing tonight, Trump continues hammering on Pence, calling it “very sad” than Pence “gave those votes over,” referring to Jan. 6 session of Congress.

OK sure: 1. We take no funds from Big Pharma: they haven’t offered; we haven’t asked. Instead we make accessible, affordable vaccines for global health. 2. I receive no funds for media/podcasts. 3. But you know who does accept a lot of dark money? That’s right antivaccine groups
@PeterHotez . Please list ALL of your conflicts of interest. Starting with Big Pharma interests. Go

The Q-Anon crowd is at televangelist John Hagee’s Cornerstone Church in San Antonio. They are chanting, “Let’s Go Brandon” from the church pews.

If Attorney General Garland doesn't already feel maximum pressure to do what's right here -- which is, surely, to indict Bannon without further delay -- then he needs to reconsider how well suited he is to the role of chief law enforcement officer for the United States of America
One take on this: the Committee is amping up pressure on DOJ to indict Bannon & incentivize compliance with its subpoenas.

This is real. Where is an alert and energized Justice Department and FBI when we need them? Where is a mobilized Attorney General? Retweet if, like me, you are out of patience!

"Sesame Street was never this contravsial--" Yeah it was. It's original purpose was to teach inner city kids, mostly PoC and poor kids. Conservatives *hated* it and have tried defunding PBS for decades.

20 years after taking out student loans, the typical white borrower owes about 5% of their debt. The typical Black borrower owes about 95%. Because of the wealth gap & systemic discrimination, Black students go into more debt & have a harder time paying it. #CancelStudentDebt

Any member of Congress who helped plot a terrorist attack on our nation’s capitol must be expelled. This was a terror attack. 138 injured, almost 10 dead. Those responsible remain a danger to our democracy, our country, and human life in the vicinity of our Capitol and beyond.

It is baffling that @RepMattGaetz had the opportunity to question the Attorney General of the US about the section of DOJ that is investigating Gaetz for potential crimes. You think that’s okay @GOPLeader? This is why those under crim investigation should be removed from cmtes.
NEW on Matt Gaetz investigation: DOJ has added two top prosecutors from Washington to the sex trafficking investigation of Gaetz, a sign of the complex and high-stakes nature of the inquiry into one of Trump’s closest congressional allies. w/@ktbenner nytimes.com/2021/10/21/us/po…
