Monday

Rep Maxine Waters (D-CA) via CNN told reporters Monday, “I believe in peaceful, very peaceful protests. I have not called for the harm of anybody. This President has lied again when he’s saying that I’ve called for harm.”

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) has called on Waters to apologize.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) spoke on the senate floor about Waters call that people continue to harass members of the Trump administration, “I strongly disagree with those who advocate harassing folks if they don’t agree with you. If you disagree with a politician, organize your fellow citizens to action and vote them out of office, but no one should call for the harassment of political opponents. That’s not right. That’s not American.”



David Lynch a filmmaker best known for his work on Twin Peaks, Mulholland Drive, and Blue Velvet, was interviewed by The Guardian the interview was published Saturday.

The interview covers a wide range of topics, including his four marriages, why the filmmaker believes explaining his films is a ‘crime,’ and politics.

Lynch explains that he was a Bernie Sanders supporter and in the general election he supported former governor of New Mexico, Gary Johnson.

In the long article conversation turns to President Trump, the guardian quotes the director as saying, “He could go down as one of the greatest presidents in history because he has disrupted the thing so much. No one is able to counter this guy in an intelligent way.” While Trump may not be doing a good job himself, Lynch thinks, he is opening up a space where other outsiders might. “Our so-called leaders can’t take the country forward, can’t get anything done. Like children, they are. Trump has shown all this.”


Politico reported Sunday that, Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) was overheard by sources saying, “If you get me one more glass of wine, I’ll tell you stuff only Bob Mueller and I know. If you think you’ve seen wild stuff so far, buckle up. It’s going to be a wild couple of months.” The incident happened on Friday night, during a dinner that was part of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee’s annual Majority Trust retreat.

Senator Warner has according to the linked article, said on Monday, “It was a bad joke. You know how seriously I take this investigation.”
