In honor of the day, let’s all read the absolutely epic Twitter thread that begins with this post here:
Joy Ann Reid rocks, and that is all.
From Talking Points Memo, quoting James Comey at today’s Senate Intelligence hearing:
“There should be no fuzz on this whatsoever. The Russians interfered in our election during the 2016 cycle. They did it with purpose. They did it with sophistication. They did it with overwhelming technical efforts. And it was an active measures campaign driven from the top of the government. There is no fuzz on that,” Comey said.
“It is a high confidence judgment of the entire intelligence community — and the members of this committee have seen the intelligence — it’s not a close call,” he continued. “That happened. That’s about as unfake as you can possibly get and is very, very serious, which is why it’s so refreshing to see a bipartisan focus on that. Because this is about America, not about any particular party.”
Asked if it was a “hostile act by the Russian government,” Comey replied, “Yes.”
I’m afraid this story:
Trump revealed highly classified information to Russian diplomats
…is taking attention away from this story:
NATO Frantically Tries to Trump-Proof President’s First Visit
A ‘freaked-out’ NATO braces for Donald Trump’s first meeting of the transatlantic alliance.
Because that second story deserves some attention too. And can only be worse now.
