As Olympics officials were deliberating whether to allow Russia to compete in the 2018 Games, they — + sponsors + vendors — were receiving malicious messages like this one.

French prosecutors hit upon Russia's sports corruption in 2015, setting off global scandal. Russian government hackers went on to target the Olympics, the American election — and France's election, per @TheJusticeDept. https://t.co/Mla3Lm9R3r

NEW: In 2020 Voting Wars, Federal Appeals Courts Emerge as Crucial for Trump in Voting Cases w/⁦@RebeccaRuizhttps://t.co/rwrakfDcFI

ICYMI: Tough, but fair, story about whether Dianne Feinstein can steer Democrats through the Amy Coney Barrett hearings. A tough fighter in her day, she is now 87 and not as robust as she once was. And her genteel manner is from another era. @npfandos https://t.co/vk1okxfbaH

Last Feinstein questioned Barrett as a nominee, she sent her star skyrocketing among Republicans, inspiring the "Judge Dogma" nickname. Trump took note. Two months after that 2017 hearing — two weeks after Barrett became a judge — he named her to his Supreme Court shortlist. https://t.co/BBSZA6LjKt

She was torn between becoming a lawyer, a teacher or a nun. Conservative professors with connections saw standout potential in her. So, too, would a fellow Notre Dame alum working in the Trump White House. https://t.co/xTNAsL1zF9

Here is a great analysis of our story & top findings, from ⁦@DLeonhardthttps://t.co/Dc4PePFfGr

Biden said he'd make a woman his running mate + put a Black woman on the Supreme Court. Now, Trump has promised to pick a woman for Justice Ginsburg's seat. Women feel inspired, exasperated, patronized -- + most concerned with ideology. w/ @melbournecoal https://t.co/9VtESvs0lm

Bloomberg raises $16 million to pay off fines and fees of Florida felons, aiming to boost vote for Joe Biden, via @michaelscherer: https://t.co/IErTAuvyn5

Ginsburg Supreme Court Vacancy Is the Second Closest to a U.S. Election Ever https://t.co/mJaBb09gOT

For years, State Department officials have voiced concerns that they might be charged with war crimes for approving arms sales into the Yemen war. But rather than take steps to address the legal issues, the State Department has concealed them. W/ @ewong https://t.co/Y1WBGqBU2o

Less than a week later... Bloomberg is spending $100 million in Florida “to prompt enough early voting that a pro-Biden result would be evident soon after the polls close” https://t.co/EQs1xIKH2N

Quoted @PatriciaMazzei

A Florida law requiring felons to pay court fines and fees before they can register to vote is unconstitutional, a federal judge ruled, declaring that such a requirement would amount to a poll tax and discriminate against felons who cannot afford to pay. https://t.co/7bAKM0wIFR

The 11th Circuit has just reversed the Florida felons ruling on appeal. https://t.co/9wpoZHrGAw

The West has offloaded to African countries its dirtiest fuel exports, its unhealthiest fast food, its cast-off clothing, its rash-inducing maxi-pads and now is trying the same in Kenya and beyond with plastics. By @HirokoTabuchi https://t.co/McCvrBV2OG

🇺🇸Architectural IMDB: If the stunning Andrew Mellon auditorium looks familiar to you, it could be that you recognize it from its use in "The West Wing”, “Contact,” “Transformers," “State of Play,” and “Top Chef.” https://t.co/VoGS97gGpy https://t.co/zSOz7wmLvX

🇺🇸Architectural IMDB:  If the stunning Andrew Mellon auditorium looks familiar to you, it could be that you recognize it from its use in "The West Wing”, “Contact,” “Transformers," “State of Play,” and “Top Chef.” https://t.co/VoGS97gGpy https://t.co/zSOz7wmLvX

RNC trivia: The auditorium is named for the Treasury secretary during the Roaring 20s who resigned after the economy crashed, facing impeachment proceedings and accusations of self-dealing. He's also the grandfather of Trump's biggest donor. https://t.co/aNepobEOj5

“Covid was the perfect positive storm for these guys.” - Thomas Philippon, a professor of finance at New York University. @uwsgeezer https://t.co/vLanMT8ZLz

Some former Bloomberg campaign staffers are calling for him to be removed from the Democrats' convention program and substituted with a speaker like Senator Sherrod Brown or AFL-CIO president Rich Trumka. https://t.co/8ke8jvdA0Q

“He may feel a little bit like Moses,” said Barney Frank, comparing Mr. Sanders to the biblical figure who, it is written, led his people to the Promised Land but could not enter it himself. Read @melbournecoal on Bernie, now. https://t.co/8JzVJagK96

“Obviously, Trump, you wish sometimes he would just shut up – don’t go there, it’s not necessary," said Ms. Uihlein, a shipping-supply company executive. "But I’ve got a thick skin. I just try to do the best for our company and our family.”

Ms. Uihlein acknowledged some concerns about the president's style -- as well as concerns over potential boycotts of her business -- but she said she wanted to keep the country from taking a "hard left."
