Strikes me as disgraceful that 185 House Republicans come out so brazenly against a moderate, wonkish Democrat with a national security background because he’s investigating Trump misconduct. What’s the GOP slogan becoming? Down with accountability? Impunity forever? https://twitter.com/mkraju/status/1186418152739168257

I believe in engaging countries, even those committing war crimes in Yemen, even those imprisoning women's rights activists nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, even those that murder journalists. But that means publicly confronting them, not sending a delegation to kowtow. https://twitter.com/VickyPJWard/status/1186388245778747392
@nytegan has an excerpt of his new book, "A Pilgrimage to Eternity," exploring faith in a secular age.

The best investment available in America is not in hedge funds or private equity. It's ending the lead poisoning that affects half a million American kids each year, damaging their brains and futures. Addressing lead poisoning pays for itself many times over.

Also infuriating that Saudi Arabia is delinquent in repaying the US for air-to-air refueling so that the Saudis could commit war crimes in Yemen. The US shouldn't be complicit in bombing Yemen, let alone fronting the money to deadbeat war criminals. https://twitter.com/GlennKesslerWP/status/1186359809228070914
I still don't understand how make-up and great acting enabled perfect replication of Megyn Kelly, Gretchen Carlson and Roger Ailes. It's uncanny: Their moms would have been fooled.

Mark Esperanto? Trump Misnames His Defense Secretary in Tweet https://nyti.ms/2J52evy That's the biggest dissing of a cabinet member since Pres. Reagan shook hands with his own Housing Secretary, Samuel Pierce, and said something like: "Welcome to Washington, Mr. Mayor."

A great story and a reminder that China is complicit in thousands of deaths from fentanyl in the US each year. But it's hard to complain about China's policy when America's own policy on drugs has been disastrous. China's tolerance of corrupt drug makers is what the US modeled. https://twitter.com/amyyqin/status/1185533928028819458
