A member of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Jim Hines (D-CT) has read chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) hyped and secretive “Justice Department abuses” memo — and says its contents are far from the bombshell his GOP colleagues claim they are.
“Having read it,” Himes told MSNBC host Chris Matthews during a Thursday evening interview, “you’d hope that whoever wrote that was a couple of whiskies into the bag.”
The document, Himes continued, is “based on intelligence that none of these people have reviewed.”
“When mouth-breathers like [Fox News host Sean] Hannity and [Jeanine] Pirro throw this stuff up on television it doesn’t surprise me,” he said. But to hear it come from congresspeople like Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) and Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) “who should know better,” Himes continued, is disappointing.

Black man takes N-word spewing racist to school — and makes him promise to never do it again
When a racist White guy at a marina shouted out the N-word at a group of Black men, he probably didn't count on their response being a history lesson, but that's precisely what happened.
While President Donald Trump is claiming that Black community members are beating and killing White racists and responding with general violence, the two men showed a different reality.
"What made you say it?" the men asked.
The white guy shrugged.
"You that racist?" one of the men asks.
"Uh, no, I--" the White guy tried to answer.
"Then why would you call us a n*gger?" one of the men asks.
Lamar Alexander refuses to stand against Trump Supreme Court choice
Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) is an outgoing Senator but he is firmly supporting President Donald Trump's nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court.
In a statement released Sunday, Alexander claimed that the so-called "McConnell Rule" doesn't count because the Senate and the White House is ruled by Republicans. The "McConnell Rule" was never a rule until McConnell decided he didn't want former President Barack Obama to nominate another justice when conservative Justice Antonin Scalia died suddenly.
"Senator McConnell is only doing what Democrat leaders have said they would do if the shoe were on the other foot," said Alexander.
The middle class reached the end of their rope during Trump’s COVID-19 crisis — and the Senate still won’t do anything
The hold on evictions has sunset, the extra unemployment help has expired, and far too much COVID-19 bailout money went to companies and corporations instead of Americans. The middle-class that Republicans claim to support so fully has now reached the end of their rope, and the GOP's focus has shifted from the coronavirus stimulus to passing through a new Supreme Court Justice.
The Wall Street Journal walked through the way in which the pandemic has wreaked havoc on Americans who are now so far in debt as a result of the crisis that the fear they'll never come out of it.
