Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. worked in the face of relentless intimidation and violence. His dedication to peacefully pushing our nation toward equality made America a better, freer country. We must do all we can to follow his leadership and honor his sacrifice. #MLKDay

State GOPs chasing out those members who served honorably is quite a sight

Say the names of black people killed under dubious circumstances by police? Yes.
Say the names of those on death row for killing innocents -- many black themselves? No.
Do not conflate the moral case against the death penalty with the assumption that these people were innocent.

Quoted @maggieNYT

Here’s the problem: Trump currently has no lawyers on impeachment who can carry the effort. And he has a relationship with Giuliani. So let’s see where we are in a few days.

Some allies have also told Trump that he will need to take some responsibility for inciting the riot if he wants a serious lawyer to defend him, which he has indicated he doesn’t want to do.

Quoted @HeidiNBC

FBI: PA rioter Riley Williams told former “romantic partner” she intended to ship a computer device from House Speaker Pelosi’s office to Russia.

@Tom_Winter: the woman planned to send the device to a friend, who would sell it to Russia's intelligence service.

The number of exes who have played a role in turning in people who took siege on the Capitol is really something.

Quoted @jdawsey1

Trump remains fixated with getting revenge on R members who voted against him on impeachment, per several advisers. Has begun to closely watch and praise Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene. Is talking about pardons nonstop and still telling advisers that he really won the election.

Trump praising a 9/11 truther, 👏 great work everyone 👏

NYT: Pompeo, Who Led Trump’s Mission at State Dept., Leaves With a Dubious Legacy

Interesting — Pompeo describes himself as a disciple of “realism, restraint and respect,” but in here Will Ruger, Trump nominee to be ambassador to Afghanistan, says
“I don’t believe that the secretary is a card-carrying realist and restrainer.”

The good news: The threat at the Capitol looks may be a false alarm.

The bad news: A reminder that people are living in tents under highway overpasses just a few blocks from the Capitol of the most powerful nation on the planet.

"Good luck convincing swing voters that Democratic progressivism is a bigger threat to the country than an insurrection against our own government—a domestic terror threat that has forced federal law enforcement to call thousands of troops to the Capitol"

Quoted @Mike_Pence

I’m proud to report with just a few days left in our Administration, our Administration is the first in decades that did not get America into a new war. That’s Peace through Strength.

A vacuous, vain statement.

How would Pence have responded to 9/11? A bit more policing?

He supported both the Afghan and the Iraq wars.

What was FDR supposed to do after Pearl Harbor?

The words "get American into" are incredibly weaselly.

Get bent, Pence.
