I was laid off at McClatchy along with more than half a dozen others as Covid took its toll on the economy. I was in the news division. Saying otherwise is misleading. Jobs were protected for as long as they could be, but eventually, there was a cost. https://t.co/sY3tRlRsJf

Quite the quote from the former federal prosecutor in Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio's case: “I knew that he was a fraudster – but had no reason to know that he was also a domestic terrorist." https://t.co/CIQWPJ1JAT

Tarrio, in an interview with Reuters Tuesday, denied working undercover or cooperating in cases against others. “I don’t know any of this,” he said, when asked about the transcript. “I don’t recall any of this.” https://t.co/CzAicDzEQn

In first call with Putin, Biden marks a return to skepticism from the top, ⁦@agearan⁩ and ⁦@karendeyoung1⁩ report https://t.co/Jn1EnEjcAq

Trump had 18 one-on-one calls with Putin over four years, per Kremlin readouts. On a number of occasions, the White House did not even acknowledge the calls until after an announcement by Moscow, and some reported by Moscow do not appear in archived public WH records. https://t.co/enLsMBWw4T

From @emsteck and @KFILE: Marjorie Taylor Greene “repeatedly indicated support for executing prominent Democratic politicians” in Facebook activity in 2018 and 2019: https://t.co/2XsdhIooPy

"Now do we get to hang them ?? Meaning H & O ???” one commenter asked Greene, referring to Obama and Hillary Clinton. Greene replied, "Stage is being set. Players are being put in place. We must be patient. This must be done perfectly or liberal judges would let them off." https://t.co/uUQV4DjWLU
