On February 11, 2003, Robert Mueller, in his capacity as Director of the FBI, testified before the United States Congress, stating the following:

"As Director Tenet has pointed out, Secretary Powell presented evidence last week that Baghdad has failed to disarm its weapons of mass destruction, willfully attempting to evade and deceive the international community. Our particular concern is that Saddam Hussein may supply terrorists with biological, chemical, or radiological material.”

@Centaurea They're never called to accountability, so they always get called back to duty. Others get killed because of that. When will that ever end?

Barr let off the Iran Contra goons after they had been prosecuted. And now we have Abrams back to trying to kill people. North getting to play with the NRA dudes and again no one punished for thousands upon thousands of deaths.

Hmm..but then Mueller helped kill a million Iraqis so there's that. And Gina the torturer is heading the CIA.

This is what Q and folks called John McCain before he slipped away into the history books.

Mueller has said that he is not going to say anything that wasn't in his report so I don't think people are going to learn anything new. The reason he didn't testify last week is because democrats are trying to run out the clock on impeachment. After they get back from their 6 week vacation the house only works another 49 days. Now this is a sweet job don't you think? 49 days in 4-1/2 months. Hey..did they get their raise yet?

This woman is saying that Bernie's supporters are being mean to her on Twitter for saying that. But can you imagine the outrage if she had said that about Obama? Warren? Harris? Or even ByeDone which would be understandable?

reminds me very much of those two supercilious Bernie-hating "Mean Girls" who work at the NY Times, Bari Weiss and Sydney Ember.

All three women are elitist Ivy League graduates who supported Hillary Clinton. No doubt they are terrified that a Sanders presidency might threaten their privileged existence. They may be right to be afraid.

Way of the bern has a thing on those women. Subir wrote a diary on this and posted lots of tweets showing Bernie's history of being for women his entire career. One of the first comments was from someone who said that they like their employer health care plan and doesn't want MFA. 150 comments later there's this:

Can't go a day or two without trying to incite a good old pie fight, Subes? We're gonna party like it's 2016? Well, go right ahead with your bad self. I'm not playing.

After reading 300 plus comments I didn't see one person address the tweets and Bernie's history. He started trying to make things better for women way back when he was mayor and since then, but yeah it's 2016 all over again.

MFA seems much better than "single payer will never, ever happen!"

Sigh. Remember when everyone was pissed because we got stuck with the ACA and without even a public option? I do..
