Former CIA Director John Brennan tweeted that when he hears Joe Biden say President Donald Trump is an existential threat, today’s scandal is exactly what Biden means.
“This is just the latest example of what Vice President Biden meant when he said that Mr. Trump is an existential threat to our country. ‘Unfit to be President’ is a gross understatement. @realDonaldTrump is undeserving of any public office, and all Americans should be outraged,” Brennan tweeted.

In an MSNBC interview, Brennan said that this is just part of the same stuff we’ve seen from Trump since he announced in 2015.
“That has been his attitude ever since he was on the campaign trail, number one,” Brennan told host Chris Matthews. “Number two: this just is the definition of an unethical politician who is willing to stoop to anything to win an election and Mr. Trump does not have a problem with a foreign government shaping the outcome of a U.S. election.”
He went on to say that it’s clear there is a president in the Oval Office “who is not opposed to having the influence and the candidacies of the individual who aspire to gain our foreign trust. It is deeply, deeply angered that that’s what Mr. Trump’s attitude is.”

‘The ground is shifting’: Longtime GOP aide sounds the alarm that Trump is putting Arizona in play
Chuck Coughlin, who once served as a top aide to two different Republican governors in Arizona, is warning that President Donald Trump is putting his state in play for the 2020 presidential election.
In an interview with Politico, Coughlin said his party has expressed real anxiety about the state turning blue next year.
"Republicans are very concerned,” he said. "The ground is shifting."
At the moment, just 45 percent of Arizona voters have a favorable view of Trump, while 53 percent have an unfavorable view. Additionally, the victory of Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) in last year's midterm elections showed that Democrats can be competitive in statewide races in a place that became famous for electing iconic conservative senators such as John McCain and Barry Goldwater.
PolitiFact corrects conservatives: The NYT Kavanaugh story has not been debunked
The new report from The New York Times on the allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh contained some stunning new revelations — including that several people tried to contact the FBI to corroborate Deborah Ramirez's assault allegation but were ignored, and that prominent attorney Max Stier alleges he saw Kavanaugh take part in a third assault.
But conservative news sites are now running with the idea that the Times article has been discredited and that the paper has retracted its claims. PJ Media, a prominent right-wing site, ran the headline "New York Times Now Admits New Kavanaugh Accusation Is Fake News."
