[email protected] with his three predictions of what happens next with the tax bill:
Haim Saban to Jared Kushner: Thanks for making effort on behalf of Israel at UN #Saban17
Sen. Mitch McConnell on Senate tax plan: "I'm confident this is not only revenue neutral to the government, but actually it's very likely to be a revenue producer."
Graham on North Korea: We're getting close to military conflict. We're running out of time. Time to start sending American dependents out of South Korea.
Graham says Michael Flynn would know if collusion took place between Trump campaign, Russia.
Would Graham be ok with Roy Moore serving in the Senate? Says "we cant stop him from being seated," but it would be problematic if 6 Ethics Committee members found him guilty of child molestation.
Graham on if Roy Moore is elected: I think an ethics investigation would be a smart thing to do.
[email protected]: You tweet and comment regarding ongoing criminal investigations at your own peril, I'd be careful if I were you, Mr. President, and I'd watch this
[email protected]: Would you be okay with @MooreSenate being a senator? @LindseyGrahamSC: If there was an investigation and all six members of the committee said they believe he was a child molester that would be a problem.
56% of Moore supporters more likely to vote for him after McConnell said Moore should step aside. McConnell: "The people of AL are going to decide a week from Tuesday who they want to send to the Senate It's been a pretty robust campaign with a lot of people weighing in"
Dickerson: The WH argued voters heard about Trump accusers. They voted for him anyway. End of subject. So shouldn't that be the case with Roy Moore? McConell: Well, look. I'm concerned about the Senate. And we have two ethics investigations in the Senate going on right now.
Does Mitch McConnell think Roy Moore should serve in the Senate? "We'll swear in whoever's elected and see where we are at that point."
McConnell's response to tax bill negative polling: "We'll see how unpopular it is when people start paying less in taxes."
Democrats say Republicans rammed tax bill through Senate. McConnell: "Not true. We followed regular order."
Senate Maj. Leader Mitch McConnell says it's "impossible" to guarantee tax cut for everyone in middle class
During the campaign, Trump said the government needed a "good shutdown." Mulvaney says Congress is broken, operating "crisis to crisis"; does not encourage a shutdown.
OMB Dir. Mulvaney on possible government shut down: House "right-wingers" shouldn't be able to hold gov't hostage
Critics say tax plan passed Senate without regular order. @JDickerson asks: Didn't Republicans critique Dems for doing the same thing with healthcare? Mulvaney: I'd change the rules but you shouldn't let procedure dictate policy
Critics say tax plan passed Senate without regular order. Mulvaney critiques Senate rules; says they are arcane and bizarre. Says rules lead lawmakers to "game the system."
In the past, Trump has said carried interest allows hedge fund managers to get away with murder. Mulvaney claims Senate tax plan will "discourage" short-term abuse.
OMB Dir. Mick Mulvaney open to non-"significant" change in corporate rate if needed to move the bill forward.
Michele Flournoy on foreign policy concerns: We need a strong diplomatic arm. And right now, I'm very worried about the sort of decimation of the State Dept, and the departure of many senior diplomats, and the failure to bring in whole classes of new Foreign Service officers.
Michele Flournoy on how @POTUS' national security and foreign policy: The president has appointed a very strong national security team, but I'm concerned about some of his early actions…biggest fear right now is that allies are wondering whether they can rely on the United States.

H.R. McMaster on how @POTUS will "take care of" NoKo: What @POTUS is saying is we need to take care of it. If necessary, the president and the U.S. will have to take care of it, because he has said he's not going to allow this murderous, rogue government to threaten the U.S.
