Classy.
"Once the stolen identities were established, Sanchez used them to open lines of credit, write to credit bureaus and transfer funds to his own accounts. In some cases, he bought items for himself using credit cards bearing the names of people his office had either deported or was considering deporting."

South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg (D - IN) ranks third in Iowa polls


"The biggest surprise in this poll is Mayor Pete, last week we saw him inching up in our national poll, and now he’s in double digits in Iowa, America is going to be asking who is 'Mayor Pete'?" Spencer Kimball, director of the Emerson Poll, said.

“If Buttigieg is able to maintain his momentum, his candidacy appears to be pulling from the same demographic of young voters as Sanders, and that could become a problem for Sanders,” Kimball said.

In giving Trump the all-clear on obstruction charges, Barr appears not to have considered whether Trump obstructed the actual crime in question. He instead considered whether the president obstructed a different crime. This is the legal sleight of hand that has allowed Barr to proclaim that Trump will not be charged.

The Democratic-controlled House Judiciary Committee now has abundant reason to get all the underlying materials from the Mueller inquiry, because the attorney general just cleared the president of something he agreed constituted a crime just a few months ago.

When Democrats propose policies that work have been in place for decades and work well in all of Europe, Australia, Japan, Canada, etc. and the Republican response is that it will turn us into Venezuela we need to point out this idiocy and fast. We can't let that zeitgeist take hold and it's already easy to spook Americans by simply invoking the word "socialism" to describe anything. It's like the "I don't want government healthcare a la ACA taking away my Medicare" BS we saw when we were debating ACA. We have to make sure that moderates and on the fence Republicans don't fall for this bullshit. #progressive #politics https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/pence-likens-democratic-health-care-and-energy-agenda-to-socialism/2019/03/01/5e522bfe-3c30-11e9-a2cd-307b06d0257b_story.html?utm_term=.277ce30ea380
