A Moment Of Republican Honesty......

"And then they remind me that there’s a lot of liberal folks in those other schools who maybe we don’t want to vote. Maybe we want to make it just a little more difficult. And I think that’s a great idea."

It’s unclear which “other schools” Hyde-Smith referred to in the video. There are several historically black colleges and universities in the state.

Ayup, a republican from Mississippi in a moment of honesty. We all know what she was talking about. Your republican tribe exposed. Again.

Indeed......

Retiring Republican Sen. Jeff Flake said Wednesday that he will not vote to confirm the Trump administration's judicial nominees on the Senate floor or advance them in the Senate Judiciary Committee if legislation to protect special counsel Robert Mueller does not receive a Senate floor vote.

"We have been told that the bill that Sen. Coons and I will move to bring up shortly is not necessary, as there have been no indications that the independence of Mr. Mueller's investigation is in jeopardy. That may have been an arguable position before last week. But it is not arguable anymore."

"The President now has this investigation in his sights, and we all know it,"

"The President has said that he's not going to move on the special counsel. But that's not enough. And perhaps that's what gives comfort to the majority leader. ... But it doesn't give comfort to me."

When It's Right It's Right...

"FOX News supports CNN in its legal effort to regain its White House reporter’s press credential. We intend to file an amicus brief with the U.S. District Court. Secret Service passes for working White House journalists should never be weaponized. While we don’t condone the growing antagonistic tone by both the President and the press at recent media avails, we do support a free press, access and open exchanges for the American people."
Twelve more news outlets including the AP, Bloomberg, First Look Media, Gannett, National Press Club, NBC News, New York Times, POLITICO, Press Freedom Defense Fund, EW Scripps, USA Today Network, Washington Post have announced their plans to follow FOX News lead and file amicus briefs in support of CNN.

Given FOX News consistent support of tRump vitriol and policies their statement and action is, to say the least, quite surprising.
