Three little words …

Perhaps Trump was confused and thought Yanukovich was still president of Ukraine. This is straight out of his playbook.

He just can’t get over Hillary Clinton.

Before giving U.S. military aid to Ukraine, President Trump wanted “nothing less” than for the European country to announce an investigation targeting Clinton in addition to one targeting Joe Biden and his son, according to a senior State Department official.

George Kent, a deputy assistant secretary of state for European affairs, made the bombshell revelation during his closed-door deposition on Oct. 15, testifying he was told that Trump used Clinton’s name as “shorthand” for the investigation he wanted President Volodymyr Zelensky to launch into a debunked right-wing conspiracy theory claiming anti-Trump Ukrainians interfered in the 2016 election.

Kent’s deposition, a transcript of which was released Thursday, marks the first time Clinton’s name has come up in the context of Trump’s desired Ukrainian investigation of the 2016 U.S. election. The mention suggests Trump wanted the probe to target the former Democratic presidential candidate one way or another.

Kent said Gordon Sondland, Trump’s handpicked ambassador to the European Union, had conveyed the Clinton message to him and other diplomats after speaking to the president on Sept. 7.

It’s Election Day!

There are gubernatorial elections in Louisiana, Kentucky, and Mississippi; state legislative elections in New Jersey and Virginia; mayoral races in major cities; and hundreds of local races across the country. And the stakes are high: Many of the officials we elect today will have a heavy hand in redrawing the district maps we’ll use for the next decade.

It’s critical that you know whether, when, and where you can cast a ballot — and it’s never been easier to get all the information you need to make your voice heard.

“If you worried about my age, it was unnecessary,” she said.

Ginsburg is now 86 and entering her 27th year on the court. She and the Clintons reminisced about the old days at an annual lecture named for her.

Bill Clinton repeated that he knew within 10 minutes of interviewing then-Judge Ginsburg that he would offer her the job, although his first choice was New York Gov. Mario Cuomo.

Hillary Clinton said she liked to think she had something to do with Ginsburg’s nomination as well. “I may have expressed an opinion or two about people he should move up” the list of possibilities, she said.

Farewell to a Giant!

His daughter Adia quoted Eminem. Kweisi Mfume quoted Sartre and Frost. Staffer Harry Spikes quoted Bruce Lee and The Lion King. And, of course, many quoted Elijah Eugene Cummings, aka ‘Bobby.’  It was a celebratory sendoff for a true Lion of the House. The recessional was ‘Lift Every Voice and Sing’ as you have never heard it before. We will not see his like.

Statement from President Clinton and Secretary Clinton on the Passing of Representative Elijah Cummings

Elijah Cummings was a resounding voice of moral courage who fought the good fights for the people of Baltimore, and faithfully honored his oath to protect and defend the Constitution with a passion, skill, determination, and dignity rarely matched in our history.  He worked for affordable, quality health care, educational and economic opportunities, and environmental justice for all Americans.  And he led the House Committee on Oversight and Reform in finding facts, exposing fictions, and demanding that our government be accountable.  Hillary and I are grateful to have served with him and for his friendship.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Maya and the Cummings family.
