Remember when everyone was like “hey Mike Flynn, how about you tell us who paid you to speak to an RT conference and sit with Putin at dinner”? Everyone should be asking Mike Pence who paid him for this, and how, and how much, and for what.
Former Vice President Mike Pence spoke at a family values forum in Hungary, saying he's hopeful the Supreme Court's new conservative majority created during the Trump administration will soon overturn abortion rights in the U.S. Full story: apne.ws/sMzPKww

“Rather than targeting the very vocal minority of people who insist they will never get vaccinated, Cooper and his graduate student Logan Pearce focused on individuals whose actions don’t consistently align with their stated beliefs.” Interesting approach 👇🏽
Advocacy + Mindfulness = Cognitive Dissonance #PrincetonU prof. Joel Cooper and @PrincetonGrad student Logan Pearce have discovered an approach to successfully motivate people to get vaccinated and follow public heatlh measures. bit.ly/2XLQEiM

JUST NOW: "No one has lost the state of Arizona more than Donald Trump." Draft report from Maricopa County "audit" finds Trump had even fewer votes than thought.

People often ask me what can be done to combat GOP authoritarianism. The answer is simple: Democrats need to recognize the severity of the threat, stop messing around, and wield the political power voters gave them to shore up democratic institutions with key reforms. @NewDay

there's some confusion about this in the comments, so let me just note that I only put up the mansplaining gif when it is Egregious Mansplaining. I don't do the gif for any old misdemeanor mansplaining. Nobody has time for that

The other key piece of this is that according to @MaryLTrump's book (if I recall correctly),the substance of the tax returns indicated that whatever contract/settlement she reached with the family was ITSELF based on a fraudulent misrepresentation of their finances
“This is a very poorly drafted complaint with very little support. I was surprised to see how poorly it was done. …It kind of causes me to question why it’s being filed at all, I don’t see any merit at all.” --@JenGRodgers on Trump lawsuit against his niece and NYT.

In other words, it seems really weird to me that the Trump family is seeking to enforce an agreement, the material terms of which were fraudulent (and therefore unenforceable?) based upon the information that Mary uncovered -- the whole thing is so dumb

This shouldn’t have been a close call for Mike Pence. No one should need a lawyer to tell them that plotting to steal the election and subvert our democracy would violate their oath of office.
I was honored to advise Vice President Pence that he had no choice on January 6, 2021, but to accept and count the Electoral College votes as they had been cast and properly certified by the states.

I’d love to understand the alignment between @TheJusticeDept positions on false statements by NS Advisor Flynn, attorney Sussman, and FBI agents in Nassar mess.

Up until recently, I was kinda impressed that there's Shaka emoji 🤙 Have now been informed that it's the emoji for "call me". 😬
Question: Does the 😑 emoji mean “breathe”? That’s how I’ve been using it. At one point I didn’t realize 😬 meant “cringe” and thought it was “full smile” so there was a period of time where people got really mixed messages on text from me
