‘Just the tip of the iceberg’: Congressman says new docs only scratch the surface of Trump’s secrets from the public

On MSNBC Tuesday, Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-IL) suggested that the damning new documents from indicted Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas are only the beginning of what President Donald Trump and his associates have concealed about their Ukraine operation.

“Well, it’s a great question, but what’s interesting to me about this is that we are seeing a lot of information come to us voluntarily through Lev Parnas, but also through Freedom of Information Act requests and what they point out to us is that, you know, this is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of the information that the White House is concealing from us,” said Krishnamoorthi. “Article 2 of the articles of impeachment talk about obstructing this congressional investigation, and I think that what we’re seeing tonight is proof positive that such obstruction actually occurred.”

Local news station KOMO reports that wrestling coach Dave Hollenbeck this week posted a photo of himself smiling and giving a thumbs-up signal while another person put their knee on the back of his neck -- a clear reference to the video showing a police officer with his knee on George Floyd's neck shortly before he died.

Central Park incident just one more example of white women using their status to terrorize black men: NYT’s Charles Blow

Published

on

Amy Cooper is just the latest example of white women using their privilege and femininity to terrorize black men, according to a new column from Charles Blow.

The New York Times columnist explains that a video recording of an incident involving Cooper, an investment manager, and Christian Cooper, a science editor, has a long and shameful historical precedent.

"This racial street theater against black people is an endemic, primal feature of the Republic," Blow write. "Specifically, I am enraged by white women weaponizing racial anxiety, using their white femininity to activate systems of white terror against black men.
