Your fear of exposure is palpable. Your desperation even more so. When will those of conscience among your Cabinet, inner circle, and Republican leadership realize that your unprincipled and unethical behavior as well as your incompetence are seriously damaging our Nation.
.@FoxNews Poll numbers plummet on the Democrat inspired and paid for Russian Witch Hunt. With all of the bias, lying and hate by the investigators, people want the investigators investigated. Much more will come out. A total scam and excuse for the Dems losing the Election!
Avoiding that fundamental doesn't grant you more dignity or ethic. It merely allows the lie -- in this case the origin of state-sponsored kidnapping of children -- to stand. It makes you complicit in the lie and the cruelty. twitter.com/FaithIncNYC/st…

BREAKING @AP: Immigrant children as young as 14 housed at a juvenile detention center in Virginia say they were beaten while handcuffed and locked up for long periods in solitary confinement, left nude and shivering in concrete cells. apnews.com/afc80e51b56246…
Sarah, I know you don’t care even a tiny little bit about the ethics rules, but using your official account for this is a clear violation of 5 CFR 2635.702(a). It’s the same as if an ATF agent pulled out his badge when a restaurant tried to throw him/her out.
Last night I was told by the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, VA to leave because I work for @POTUS and I politely left. Her actions say far more about her than about me. I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so
Sanders used her official govt account to condemn a private business for personal reasons. Seeks to coerce business by using her office to get public to pressure it. Violates endorsements ban too, which has an obvious corollary for discouraging patronage. Misuse reg covers both.
Opening sentences of 5 CFR 2635.702 cover both; 702(a) gives example of coercion; 702(c) gives example of endorsement. Also 2635.101(b)(8) bars preferential treatment, with obvious corollary for singling out. She can lob attacks on her own time but not using her official position
There’s no ethics rule against Sarah Sanders fans being cartoonish hypocrites in defending merchants discriminating against gay people but howling when a merchant rejects a human rights violator based on her involvement in harming babies & children. Ridicule will have to suffice.
America is not some random place where we live, America is a set of ideals. They make us a country. No doubt we sometimes fall short of our ideals, but real Americans fight for them. We will never accept these atrocities. We will stand up for these children. #WhereAreTheChildren
Hurrah! The US media has now shown up to cover the unfolding Brexit-Russia scandal & its uncanny similarities to the Trump-Russia scandal. Because these are not two scandals, they are the same scandal. With one factor common to both: @Nigel_Farage nymag.com/daily/intellig…
Join us today at 415 EST on @fox for NOSSA CHAPE. Took me a few takes to fight back tears and get thru my lines for this one. Powerful and emotional story. My privilege to introduce it. #Chapecoense 🇧🇷
an amazing action at the Otay Mesa detention. We clearly heard the detainees yelling & calling out to us. We redecorated the entrance sign & created an altar. We shutdown the front entrance. Now 10 clergy will remain to be cited and released #letourchildrengo
No more talking, #LetOurChildrenGo! Statewide action in border zone this weekend! Buses/vans from across California. Stay tuned for link! If you wanna do more than talking, get on the DAMN bus! You riding or Nah?
Today I affirm my power of resistance to #HOPE against hope! We who resist in evil in this country and abroad our continuing generations of commitment to make the world more just and inclusive. Let us not give into despair, we shall receive our just reward! #LetOurChildrenGo
Protesting in Otay Mesa today outside a detention facility. We won’t stop marching until children are reunited with their mothers and fathers. We will not stand by as long as families seeking asylum are treated without compassion. We will speak up. #LetOurChildrenGo
At the end of the day, it’s not about what you have or even what you’ve accomplished. It’s about what you’ve done with those accomplishments. It’s about who you’ve lifted up, who you’ve made better. It’s about what you’ve GIVEN BACK.
“It’s rigged!” is @realDonaldTrump’s favorite assertion of his victimhood. He’s claimed lawsuits, RNC primary, general election, DNC primary, media, and now multiple criminal probes are “rigged.” None of which actually turned out to be rigged *against* him. #MAGA
And I’m talking about groups on the left. You can’t say you care about families and unification and then not unify them because you are trying to advance another political agenda. One focus rt now - reunite these families. Period.
Some groups do not want to unify families bc they argue it makes it easier for DJT to advance unlimited detention. This makes no sense. It also means keeping moms & children apart so they can used as pawns. We need a #SingleStagingAreaNow and then we can turn to other issues.
If the left is not careful, they will overplay their hand on the border issue and squander the goodwill that America feels towards these families. Now is NOT the time to try and leverage this in an effort to solve all of the important immigration issues. Reunite families first.
Quite a moving story by @YasmineTaeb about coming to America and being given a chance. This is a reminder that every single one of these individuals is a human being with a personal story of life, love and, hopefully, survival.
My thoughts and prayers go out to Republican Congressional Candidate Katie Arrington and her family, as well as the others who were injured or killed in last night’s automobile accident.
Get well soon Katie!
For the fourth straight day there was no WH briefing. No officials to explain how the admin plans to return the separated kids to their parents. This is how the briefing room looks.. a few reporters waiting for answers that aren’t coming yet. #whereistheplan#whereispresssec
(thread) People have been asking about the lava experience here in Hawaii. Thought I’d post some images and video from that experience and maybe raise some awareness in whatever small way I can. Here is my story...
Dem @tedlieu, on US House floor, plays @ProPublica audio of wailing children in detention.
"We have 2,300 babies & kids in detention facilities who were ripped away from their parents. I think the American people need to hear this."
2300 kids were ripped away from parents with no real plan to reunite them. I can't play the @ProPublica audio of their cries for help because of "decorum"? F*ck decorum. @realDonaldTrump engaged in the functional equivalent of kidnapping. The American people need to hear this.
Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) remained steadfast on the House floor while playing heart-wrenching audio of detained children separated from their parents, despite fierce opposition from the chamber's presiding officer.
Dear @SpeakerRyan: You told the American people you didn't know about the scandals of @EPAScottPruitt. So either you have no integrity, or you get all your information from the National Enquirer. In case it's the latter, I'm forwarding you a good piece from George Will. twitter.com/TopherSpiro/st…
Executive Order my ass. Donald Trump & Jeff Sessions are lying white trash child abusing monsters. It ain’t over until the children are safe & the Trump Administration is not. twitter.com/reveal/status/…
