Quoted @EricSchmittNYT

Pompeo rebukes Russia for bounties on U.S. troops in Afghanistan, countering Trump's claims the intelligence was a "hoax." Congress demands more details. w/@ewong https://t.co/faqAYTvzta

Don’t miss this. The President said he never confronted Putin on the bounties because the intelligence is flawed. So did Sec. Pompeo confront his counterpart based on bad intel, or does he know something the Pres. doesn’t, or won’t admit? https://t.co/1Y7twEE8bU

NEW: Trump’s Iran envoy, Brian Hook, to depart. He’ll be replaced by Venezuela point man Elliott Abrams. With @SangerNYT https://t.co/e9gUVmh84G

If the Trump Admin. was an episode of ‘Survivor,’ and it is, every day, Brian Hook appeared in four seasons. Judging his success on Iran will depend on whether the pressure campaign creates long term change in Tehran, or dissolves the alliances that resulted in the 2015 accord. https://t.co/zSpogGa7py

Not that it would be a hot-button campaign trail issue, but if Susan Rice is Biden's VP pick, it's worth revisiting her approach to South Sudan South Sudan is one of the most spectacular failures of US foreign policy, but one too few Americans know about https://t.co/VKEUWsn3pT

A not insignificant number of journalists in Beirut had their homes blown up today and then went out to report. Proud to call them friends and colleagues.

Birx appears to be referencing this piece: https://t.co/wQMUD79No4. We made repeated efforts to speak with her for it. If she wanted to have input she had every opportunity.

Can’t emphasize enough @maggienyt point here. We asked to interview Dr. Birx repeatedly for story that described her role in recent months. We sent questions; most , went unanswered. You can’t have it both ways: Ignore or deflect questions, then complain you were not asked. https://t.co/OsLDfiDAbx

Quoted @PostOpinions

"Impeachment exposed Trump’s corruption, but the confluence of a pandemic, a financial crisis and the stoking of societal divisions has roused the soul of the American people," @AVindman writes in an op-ed. https://t.co/BcrhI9bUWP

America has thrived because citizens have been willing to contribute their voices and shed their blood to challenge injustice... It is in keeping with that history of service that, at this moment, I feel the burden to advocate for my values and an enormous urgency to act. https://t.co/6w5Sq1zB86

Nancy Pelosi is attacking Dr. Deborah Birx, one of America's leading public health experts fighting around the clock to combat the coronavirus. But the media remains silent. https://t.co/8DqjDTiEDA

I am a member of the media. I reported this. Without me — a member of the media — this would’ve remained behind closed doors. https://t.co/0udhJUxzdW

The US has just announced sanctions on the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps (XPCC), for complicity in repression. This is HUGE. This is the big, meaningful, non-symbolic, biting sanctions action that human rights advocates have pushed for. https://t.co/IqLwxpDMJA

I took COVID test on July 17, and the results arrived today. 14 days later. The definition of pointless.

Quoted @peterbakernyt

Lincoln did not delay elections during the Civil War. FDR did not delay elections during World War II.

For 7 years, I covered dictators and strongmen in West and Central Africa. The No. 1 move of an incumbent who thinks he’s going to lose an upcoming election, is to delay the ballot citing security concerns or else technical issues - “oops, ballots couldn’t be printed in time!” https://t.co/fcDW8RQmrR

Mike Pompeo just claimed: "I fought on the border of East Germany." There was, luckily, no fighting on the border with East Germany.

Lots of people having fun with #FoughtInGermany today cc @mikejason73 https://t.co/64L0AAfypn

Expressing that Black lives matter is not a political statement. It is a fundamental truth. It is not a violation of social media policy to tell the world that Black lives matter.

It has come to my attention that some @mcclatchy journalists believe they will be fired if they publicly state support for Black lives. So, I’ll start: Black lives matter. Now, if anyone is going to be fired, I can be first.

Literally minutes after Esper insisted that the withdrawal of troops from Germany has nothing to do with German defence spending, Trump told reporters: "Germany's delinquent. They haven't paid their Nato fees." (which is not true. The argument is over defence spending as %GDP)
