A really insightful and also devastating report shows unions as a whole have gained billions of dollars in assets in the past decade, while union membership and grassroots staff declined. Portrait of a failed strategy.

An abolitionist newsletter that was getting into nearly every New Mexico prison contained current events, poetry, art and tips for slowing the spread of COVID behind the walls. Under a new mail policy, prison officials have been returning it to sender: sourcenm.com/2022/08/12/som…
 
Our legal fight is over, we won and we’re on the ballot!

I'm excited to do what we started out to do: to run a campaign that's independent and unique from the Democrats and Republicans, a campaign that’s for the working families of North Carolina.

Marc Elias and his law firm lost. They tried to meddle in an election and were stopped. It’s a sweet victory.

Engaging conversation with @JohnKiriakou on the week's news involving Trump, FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago, and the Espionage Act.

The FBI was much more delicate in their search against Trump. Against Kiriakou, they ransacked his home.

that's very late for those time zones. video will archive for later viewing.
 
Abolish Espionage Act, but also if Trump was lower-level federal govt employee and not a former US president he already would be facing Espionage Act charges. All his electronics would have been seized by FBI agents in addition to documents. Wouldn't be this tip-toeing by DOJ.
 
Talking with CIA whistleblower @JohnKiriakou at 6pm ET about latest developments around Donald Trump, FBI search warrant, and whether he'll possibly face Espionage Act charges

The search warrant for retrieving boxes of documents from Trump's estate tells us that potential violations of Espionage Act were part of justification for the raid. But that doesn't necessarily mean Trump will face Espionage Act charges. pic.twitter.com/V3IblQWjGp
Replying to @kgosztola
From before we learned about the alleged nuclear weapons documents being in the boxes that FBI agents retrieved, but still relevant to the question of whether the DOJ brings Espionage Act charges against Trump. youtu.be/M-P8rfRo0fw

Two-tiered US justice system acknowledged by former US Justice Department official (and I think Katyal means deferential treatment)
Trump’s allies are right to say he has faced differential treatment from the FBI.

He’s been treated better. If you or I were hanging on to classified documents about nuclear weapons, I don’t think the feds would send a subpoena and wait 2 months before knocking on our doors

Feels like a good night to shout into the ether:

I missed one. An important one - pardon Jeffrey Sterling too.

I mean if he was charged under the Espionage act, it would b §794, not §793...
Replying to @ChipGibbons89
Great, that would be outside my lane. I just don’t know what I would do if Trump was charged under 793 like Assange. That would be a universe collapsing in on itself moment.
 
In reply to @kgosztola
If it turns out Donald Trump was giving nuclear secrets to the Saudis, I very well make an exception to my first opposition to the Espionage Act and the FBI.
Replying to @ChipGibbons89
I would hope he wouldn’t be charged under the Espionage Act, and charged under this law instead. If he is even charged.

So maybe we should all be talking about Trump violating a different law, one of much more consequence than the Presidential Records Act.

This FBI: * Pushed Russia collusion hoax * Spied on law-abiding Americans * Lied to FISA court * Ignored Hillary's server escapades * Ignored Biden Family criminal activity * Persecutes journalists * Treats J6 trespassers like terrorists * Ignores drug crimes at border On and on

Kevin's interesting on Walters but what CNN's doing is simpler than he says
Smerconish laces the interview with non-sequitur sound bites for the final cut so the audience will know what "prestige media" rules they should think:
"you've got it in reverse
you're giving them a pass"

“To find out that they’re building a scenario village when there are thousands of people, homeless, with nowhere to go...it’s sickening.”
 
Hilarious. There are so many people from the Bush administration or on Wall Street who committed crimes but never were prosecuted. Because the DOJ didn’t want to rock the boat.
Former Attorney General Eric Holder was asked "if he would charge Donald Trump and his allies for their role in the Jan. 6 riot," the @vineyardgazette reports.

"Mr. Holder turned to Lanny Breuer, the former head of the criminal division at the DOJ, who was sitting in the crowd." pic.twitter.com/fVQcGQYPhb

It's cute that a former chief of the US Justice Department's national security division would suggest Trump may be charged with violating the Espionage Act. But of all people they should know that only lower-level federal employees/contractors get charged under that law.

Wrote about that. FBI entrapment scheme. Awful what was done to those men.
 
Your guide to the morning's discourse: those who mostly align with Republicans say abolish the FBI. Those who mostly align with Democrats are heaping praise on the FBI and celebrating it as an institution.

If that's all too stupefying, maybe stay offline for a day.
 
In reply to @GGrikstein
FBI clearly thinks Trump stole documents. Former presidents don’t typically get raided, the FBI is reluctant to investigate former presidents, and it’s kind of an understood agreement that presidential crimes won’t be investigated by the next administration. That said, we’re here

That’s not how journalism works, CBS News. After you expose a problem, and officials act like they are correcting it, you then cover the response but leave up the original report. You don’t memory hole the original like some compromised state-affiliated media outlet.
