[email protected]: I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI. He has pled guilty to those lies. It is a shame because his actions during the transition were lawful. There was nothing to hide!

Fox now reporting KT McFarland was the one who told Flynn to discuss the Obama admin's Russia sanctions with Kislyak. Back in February, no one seemed to understand why the WH was willing to risk so much to keep her on.
@SenWarren: I don't think a single middle class family in this country should pay more taxes so that big corporations and billionaires can pay less. Big corporations should pay MORE so that we can cut taxes on working families and small businesses and invest in our future.
[email protected]: "There are changes apparently worth billions and billions of dollarsThe American people have a right to know the tax policy being made in the dark."
@SenWarren: The GOPTaxScam is a smash-and-grab job. The GOP don't even try to hide the corruption. And they don't worry about how many middle class families are hurt in the caper.
@SenWarren: This GOPTaxScam is about paying off the rich, corporate donors that helped get the @SenateGOP elected. It's about the way money has corrupted Washington: millions in campaign contributions for billions in tax giveaways.
@SenWarren: The GOPTaxScam isn't about fiscal responsibility. For years, the GOP have whined about exploding debt. If this trillion-dollar GOPTaxScam passes, the @SenateGOP will turn around next week and say – sorry! There's no money for Medicare, Medicaid, education, housing, you name it.
Bernie Sanders: During the campaign, Trump promised to protect Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. Now Congressional Republicans are getting ready to cut them.
@SenWarren: The GOPTaxScam isn't about economic growth or jobs. Trickle down doesn't work. But don't take my word for it: top execs have admitted that they'll use tax giveaways to buy back stock and fund new mergers. Nothing for workers.
[email protected] on tax reform vote: "We're gonna do this thing and it's not for us, it's for the American people."
@SenWarren: The GOPTaxScam isn't about helping working people. It RAISES taxes for millions of middle class families. The @SenateGOP had their chance to vote to make middle class tax cuts permanent this afternoon. They voted NO.

Bernie Sanders: Mark my words: As soon as the Republican tax bill passes, Republicans are going to insist on cutting Medicare and Social Security to cut the deficit. We cannot let this disastrous bill pass.
Mark Warner: "Frankly, virtually every one of my Republican colleagues acknowledges Russian intervention. The one individual that still seems to deny that this is not a major issue is Donald Trump."
Rep. Blake Farenthold is the only sitting House member since 2013 to have used a little-known congressional account to pay for a sexual harassment claim, CBS News confirms

@NancyPelosi: Now more than ever, we need a fully independent commission to ProtectOurDemocracy from the types of meddling that took place in 2016. Republicans must stop shielding POTUS from those who wish to FollowTheFacts.
@NancyPelosi: Congress has a duty to uphold justice and ensure Robert Mueller's investigation is able to FollowTheFacts without White House interference.
Bernie Sanders: Maybe I missed it, but I don't remember the need to provide tax breaks to wealthy hedge fund managers in the Virgin Islands being one of our nation's pressing crises. Yet that's exactly what Section 14504 of the GOP bill does.
@NancyPelosi: The questions we need answered now: 1) What does @realDonaldTrump know about Russian meddling? 2) Why does he still refuse to take action against Russia?
@NancyPelosi: Important to note that Michael Flynn is the 4th Trump campaign official to be charged in connection with the Russia investigation so far.
@NancyPelosi: We should all be alarmed by @realDonaldTrump's consistent attempts to obstruct effort to FollowTheFacts on Russia.
@NancyPelosi: The guilty plea of President Trump's former National Security Advisor Flynn to lying to the FBI about his communications with Russian authorities marks a dark moment in our nation's history.

Monopolies always use economic power to build political power, says @keithellison at FairMarkets. "The bottom line is we have a crisis in democracy."
@RepAdamSchiff: The guilty plea by Michael Flynn for lying to federal agents about his contacts with the Russians is another shocking development. That he admits senior transition officials were knowing of these contacts, and therefore his subsequent lies, may be even more consequential
US Department of State: The situation in east Ghouta Syria is critical. Russia must push the Assad government to allow life-saving medicine, food, and evacuations. Don't play politics with starving families- prove a ceasefire exists, end the violence, and allow unfettered @UN access now.
Sen. Susan Collins‏: The Senate bill will include my amendment to reduce the threshold for deducting medical expenses, which helps people with high medical costs, particularly seniors and people with chronic conditions. 8.8 million Americans use this deduction, half with incomes of $50,000 or less.

House Judiciary ranking member Jerry Nadler: "There is now more than enough evidence to form the basis of a congressional investigation into the President's obstruction of justice—and it is long past time that the House Committee on the Judiciary engage on this matter."

A senior US official: Trump is likely to recognize Jerusalem as the "capital" of Israel

"Flynn felt abandoned by Trump in recent weeks, and told friends about the decision to make the plea deal within the last 24 hours as he grew increasingly concerned about crippling legal costs he would face if he continued to contest the charges," reports @ABC.
@SenGillibrand: Flynn news is a BIG deal, but please also pay close attention to the Senate floor. Sen. McConnell just said he has the votes for the tax scam bill. Keep the pressure on—call your Senators and tell them to vote NO!
Rep. Blake Farenthold used taxpayer money to settle a sexual harassment claim for $84,000 brought by his former spokesman—the only known sitting member of Congress to have used a little-known congressional account to pay an accuser, sources told POLITICO.
