Trump's claim that Bolton can publish his book when he leaves the White House doesn't support his claim that Bolton's conversations and contacts with him rise to the level of being classified.

Put even more clearly: if the material becomes fit to publish once Trump leaves office, by definition it's not classified. Classifications survive presidential turnover. It's obvious, therefore, that the restriction until Trump leaves office is purely political.

According to The Hill, Roger Stone is trying to disqualify Judge Amy Berman Jackson, the judge who sentenced him. His lawyers are trying to get a new trial - they are using Trump’s claim that one juror was biased. Can you believe this blatant corruption?

I believe we will prevail if those of us on the right side of things do our duties.

The GOP needs to rebuild itself if it wants to be a viable party down the road.

"Our Revolution" fielded a bunch of candidates in Republican-held districts in 2018. Not a single one of them won.

Concerns about what a Sanders candidacy might due to down-ballot elections are valid.

Democrats must vote in MASSIVE numbers, especially in pivotal Electoral College states.

Republicans & Russian hackers wlll do everything they can to steal votes.

If Trump loses by a close margin, he will contest. If the margin is large, it'll be much harder. #SundayMorning

People are allowed their impulses, I think.

I am energized by seeing the debates. Less energized by birdsite comments to myself and others about the debate.

Seeing real life super villain Roger Stone smiling as he leaves the courtroom is disheartening. He knows Trump will pardon him before he has to serve even one minute in prison. He wouldn't be smiling if his orange crooked friend wasn't president. Lets make sure by this time next year, these types of travesties of Justice don't happen anymore.

Additional post-debate thought after getting off that birdsite for a while.

This is the DEMOCRATIC primary.  It's not the general.  

The idea of asking Democrats to appeal to Republicans during the primary is ludicrous.

I’m not in the habit of posting Stereogum links anywhere, but seeing as how this is a meme set to music, it feels appropriate enough. I present, for your consideration, Elizabeth Warren ethering Michael Bloomberg at the debate last night.

No matter who the nominee is, they will be painted by the opposition as some scary thing or another. Socialist is 2020's emails right now. Like Hunter was for Biden just a couple of weeks ago. If another frontrunner emerges, they'll dig up some other lie.

I'm not letting it stop me. Nor should anyone.

Warren had a killer night.

There was only one Democrat on the stage who showed that she could stand up to Trump and that was Elizabeth Warren.

She strood up to Bloomberg on things someone needed to and it was clear exactly how she'd do it to Trump.

After tooting through most of the debate last night with my friends @IronMan @natashar @SteveRogers @Katniss @AgentCarter_SSR @StephenStrange and more, I fell asleep before the end. Sometime during the night I heard Warren calling out Bloomberg, and realized it was the replay on MSNBC and I wasn't dreaming calling out corruption from the presidential bully platform for the next four years. But let's make it so. 98% of the Democratic delegates are still there for the deciding.

@IronMan The more Mayor Pete attacks Klobuchar, the more he reminds me of a smug, condescending ex of mine.

That was a useful debate with important takeaways from each candidate.

Please be involved in the primaries with your vote and help others vote.

Turnout will important.

We don't have a functioning capitalistic system. He knows it.

@IronMan Bloomberg isn't wrong about the banking deserts in low income communities. That exodus and the predatory payday lenders that took the bank branches place when they moved out is a significant barrier to climbing out of generational poverty.

However, that is one of the very reasons that Warren championed the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Trump has been trying to erase those protections.

Who had their money on "how many houses do you have?" being part of this?

Recently, the handling of online defamation has become a hot topic on many mass media as well as social media channels. News Article for Reference: https://www.jiji.com/sp/article?k=2020052500387 In response to these reports, it is expected that lawsuits and disclosure requests will become more publicly known; and government agencies will order stricter enforcement in addition to tightening regulations. However, under the current state of Japan, we will not be able to handle the increase of such administrative burdens and will have trouble dealing with it appropriately. Thus, we have decided to stop providing our service on mstdn.jp and mastodon.cloud starting June 30, 2020. We are very sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding on the matter.
