We’ve survived worse, but yesterday sure felt like a low point in American history. Of course I knew Republican corporatists would be happy to sell the country to anyone who offered, but I figured at least they’d set a higher price. Guess they read the ‘thirty pieces of silver’ story from that holy book they all claim to revere, and figured it would be disrespectful to their role model to ask for more…
Apart from mourning / #Resisting, what’s on the agenda for the day?
Tillerson: "There was a very clear positive chemistry between the two…There was not a lot of relitigating things from the past."

Both the fence and the burglar agreed there was no need to relitigate who the TV belonged to.

Tillerson also said the two presidents agreed not to meddle in each other's domestic affairs. This is a huge PR win for Putin. Incalculable.

Tillerson suggests that with Russia, "on some issues maybe they have the right approach and we have the wrong approach."

Even if you accept Tillerson readout, Trump never threatened Russia with punishment for past or future election interference. Big Putin win.

POTUS' inexplicable refusal to confirm Russian election interference insults career intel pros & hinders our ability to prevent in future.

Agree completely. CIA, NSA, FBI with DNI have "high confidence" Putin directed effort to "undermine public faith in US democratic process" https://t.co/ludVou2qYf

According to Lavrov, Trump told Putin some circles in America were "exaggerating" allegations of Russian interference in the US election.

To me the most significant part of the story is the utter absence of complaint from the “conservative,” “pro-defense” party. https://t.co/9KLYS611Tz

The fact that the U.S. account of events is treated with as much skepticism as the Russian account is the consequence of Trump's lies

Not a "victory" if they're on the same side. Not a cyber "attack" if it's welcomed. The WH is aligned with Russia. We have to accept that. https://t.co/qL4Hecv7kf
