Im Schwarzen-Peter-Spiel nach dem #JamaikaAbbruch mahnt die #CDU die staatspolitische Verantwortung der #FDP /Lindner, #SPD /Schulz an, während die anderen Parteien sich gegenseitig die Schuld zuweisen und zermürben.
Hat Angela Merkel auch eine staatspolitische Verantwortung?
Giving Tsipras (a guy who called a referendum on a bogus question that divided a nation only to discard its result when he realized he’d be criminally liable for it) an award for his political courage is like giving Mugabe an award for his socio-cultural sensitivities.
(THREAD) BREAKING: Allegations Trump spoke to Putin via speakerphone at the 2013 Miss Universe pageant, discussing both his plan to run for president and his desire to see Trump Tower Moscow built with Putin's blessing—implying a quid pro quo—are 90% confirmed. Please read/share.
As a journalist, this is borderline offensive.
8:06AM: White House makes pool reporter issue a correction to say "The president will NOT have a low-key day and has a full schedule of meetings and phone calls."

Άλλη μια ανακοίνωση όπου ο ΥΠΕΞ Ν. Κοτζιάς και η κυβέρνηση ΣΥΡΙΖΑΝΕΛ ντροπιάζουν την ιστοριά, την τιμή και τον κόπο χρόνων του Διπλωματικού Σώματος της χώρας. Πόσο κρίμα, για έναν θεσμό που διαχρονικά υπηρετεί με μεγάλο σεβασμό τη χώρα, να γίνεται τσιφλίκι τυχάρπαστων γελοίων.
Greek government in panic mode, after more revelations regarding MinDef Kammenos’ newest scandal come into light every day. It’s not a coincidence that PM Tsipras intentionally scheduled to leave for Paris the day that the issue would be discussed in parliament. #Greece
In the motorcade. Responsible for the protection of Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy. I heard an explosive noise over my right shoulder, from the rear. Saw JFK's reaction. Realized it was a gunshot. Jumped and ran as fast as I could.
A weak DE, a new role for FR-IT-ES? @ecfr EU Cohesion Monitor shows all three countries have lost cohesion potential over the past decade, Italy being most critical, losing on macro and micro level. New Eu Cohesion Monitor will be out soon.
Angela Merkels Klammern an Macht, ihre eigene Wahrnehmung der Ereignisse und die damit einhergehende Verweigerung eines Neuanfangs für Deutschland, ist ein Plädoyer für die Begrenzung der Amtszeit eines Bundeskanzlers. #Neuwahlen#JamaikaAbbruch
Jetzt werden sich alle brav von Bundespräsidenten in die Pflicht nehmen lassen und noch einmal miteinander reden. Aber tatsächlich kursiert zwischen den Parteien schon ein Datum für Neuwahlen: 22.04.2018
Syriza-supporting trash newspaper Documento, run by infamous mud-slinger Kostas Vaxevanis, after continuous slandering attacks on Greek central bank chief Yiannis Stournaras and his family, now calls for his arrest through lengthy op-ed. As always, doing Syriza’s dirty work.
Last week, the Syriza-supporting EfSyn paper, in co-ordination with the Syriza-led govt, smeared respected economist @MXafa. Now, through the infamous Syriza-supporting yellow-press paper Documento, they smear central bank governor Stournaras. #Greece
NBC News: One source familiar with Kushner's congressional testimony said he denied, under oath, that he was familiar with attempts by WikiLeaks to contact the campaign. But Kushner was sent an email by Trump Jr. about his conversations with WikiLeaks. nbcnews.com/news/us-news/k…

This @ZephyrTeachout piece is key to understanding the Menendez trial, and American corruption more broadly: "The Supreme Court...has stripped anti-corruption legislation of its power in two areas: campaign finance laws and anti-bribery laws" vox.com/the-big-idea/2…
Sessions: “I’m aware that the Turkish government continued to press the federal government with regard to seeking the return of Mr. Gulen to that country…our department had a role to play in that, but I’m not at liberty to discuss the details."
