Trump remains fixated with getting revenge on R members who voted against him on impeachment, per several advisers. Has begun to closely watch and praise Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene. Is talking about pardons nonstop and still telling advisers that he really won the election.
The similarities between @tedcruz & Benedict Arnold are many: both ambitious men who felt they had been unfairly rejected for advancement. Both unliked & not trusted by their peers. Both violated their oaths to US. But Benedict Arnold was born in America & was a brave soldier.
Graham says of Biden: “If you don’t stand up against the impeachment of Donald Trump after he leaves office, you’re an incredibly weak figure in American history. President Trump is trying to heal the nation.” (Unclear how Trump is trying to do that). It’s “insane at every level”
Lindsey Graham doesn’t blame Trump for promoting Jan. 6 rally, his speech there, telling them to go to the Capitol and lying for weeks about a stolen election. Says of the riot: “How in the hell could that happen? Where was Nancy Pelosi? It’s her job to provide Capitol security.”
The suspicion that Trump had something on Lindsey Graham once seemed like a conspiracy theory
Hold onto your wallets. Biden’s 1.9 trillion “stimulus” package is filled with wasteful spending & bailouts. An even larger spending blowout will follow. Even middle-of-the-road media outlets are calling Biden’s agenda “radical.”
Replying to @JohnJHarwood: Biden’s plan is so radical the US Chamber said this:

Biden’s plan is so radical the US Chamber said this:
“The Chamber welcomes the introduction of President-elect Biden’s American Rescue Plan. Specifically, we applaud the focus on vaccinations and on economic sectors and families that continue to suffer as the pandemic rages on.”
Remember the two young brothers we wrote about in that story about the broken, bruised police unit in Zabul?
Zalmay Jan was killed by an IED two days ago, just like his police officer father before him.
The war in Afghanistan is fought on their backs.
Two of these young men on the front page of the @nytimes in a story about imagining peace have been killed since @kianahayeri and I spent time with them about 11 months ago during that brief ceasefire.
Zalmay’s wasted life will haunt — he had lived with the gun since he was 12.
As reported on @TODAYshow: Deutsche Bank will refrain from any future business with President Trump and his company, per a person familiar, and Signature Bank says it's closing the president's two personal accounts, where he had $5m+, as the bank calls for his resignation.
