“So I’m being held, and every person in this body is being held to a higher ethical standard than the President of the United States?”

“That’s right, ‘cause there are some ethics committee rules that apply to you.”

“And it’s already super legal, as we’ve seen, for me to be a pretty bad guy, so it’s even easier for the President of the United States to be one, I would assume.”

“That’s right.”

“Thank you very much.”

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez Exposes the Problem of Dark Money in Politics

The longest government shutdown in U.S history is finally over. Trump caved and won’t get his moronic wall, instead opting to sign the deal unanimously passed by Congress over a month ago. The same deal he said he’d sign until Fox News called him a coward.

For the first time I can truly see a light at the end of the tunnel.

Trump is broken. His power over Congress is gone. He’s facing real consequences for his behavior. His allies are fractured and fighting. The public isn’t listening when he speaks. His approval rating is plummeting. It’s the beginning of the end.

We can end this nightmare.

This is amazing.

AOC outlines the corruption in the simplest and most clear explanation I’ve ever heard.

Even Walter Shaub, who’s been trying to bring attention to Trump and the emoluments clause for 2 years, was impressed.

@death-to-traitors Don’t @ me with your dumb bullshit. Not everyone understands what “dark money” and “super pacs” are. AOC broke it down so everyone could get it. And the fact that you didn’t get it and still think Trump isn’t a criminal tells me just how much kool-aid you’ve been drinking.
