Austin Tice represents the best of America. President Trump must work to bring him home. - The Washington Post #MoralCourage #BringHostagesHome https://t.co/7ritxkZwOq

KKK leader who drove his truck into a #BlackLivesMatter protest has been found guilty of several misdemeanors but cleared of hate crimes charges. https://t.co/BrYcRERue4

Harold L. Ickes, the irascible and perspicacious American secretary of the interior, saw the danger. “Fascism is an ever-present threat, even here in America,” he warned in a speech before the Cleveland Zionist Society at the end of 1938. https://t.co/2y1evrG7q9

West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice and his family received between $11 million and $24 million from a federal coronavirus economic relief program. His luxury resort received up to $10 million, but did not promise to retain jobs because of the loan. https://t.co/wwuavdtYjL

It is a contradiction that has held for four years @elizabethjdias

Donald Trump was the opposite. He bragged about assaulting women. He got divorced, twice. He built a career off gambling. He cozied up to bigots. He rarely went to church. He refused to ask for forgiveness.

From the start it appeared an impossible contradiction. Evangelicals for years have defined themselves as the values voters, people who prized the Bible and sexual morality — and loving your neighbor as yourself — above all.

To the outside observer, the relationship between white evangelical Christians and Donald Trump can seem mystifying. https://t.co/3qhiJ8UqhP

“This was always a really challenging situation for us,” Mr. McConnell said in an interview. “We have a lot of exposure, a whole lot of close races, a massive amount of spending on both sides. It is a knife fight in an alley.”

Democrats, riding public dissatisfaction with President Trump’s handling of the pandemic, now find themselves with a solid chance to take control of the Senate next year. https://t.co/Tg2MHVwc7U

To allay any speculation that Putin’s interest in Trump had cooled, Key Judgment 2 was substantiated by current information from a highly sensitive foreign source described by someone who read the N.I.E. as “100 percent reliable.”

But Bort explained to his colleagues, according to notes taken by one participant in the process, that this reflected not a genuine preference for Sanders but rather an effort “to weaken that party and ultimately help the current U.S. president.”

The intelligence provided to the N.I.E.’s authors indicated that in the lead-up to 2020, Russia worked in support of the Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders as well.

The N.I.E. began by enumerating the authors’ “key judgments.” Key Judgment 2 was that in the 2020 election, Russia favored the current president: Donald Trump.

The N.I.E. was compiled by a working group consisting of about a dozen senior analysts, led by Christopher Bort, a veteran national intelligence officer with nearly four decades of experience, principally focused on Russia and Eurasia.

Eventually, this debate made it to Coats’s desk. “I can affirm that one of my staffers who was aware of the controversy requested that I modify that assessment,” Coats told @DraperRobert recently. “But I said, ‘No, we need to stick to what the analysts have said.’”

Trump’s displeasure with any suggestion that he was Putin’s favorite factored into the discussion over the N.I.E. that summer, in particular the “back and forth,” as Dan Coats, then DNI, put it, over the assessment that Russia favored Trump in 2020. https://t.co/6ssV100Sni
