BURIED LEDE: Bill Barr wanted to hire unregistered foreign agent of Turkey and former AG Michael MUKASEY…to investigate the Intelligence Community! https://t.co/fV4AXZrUPn— Eric Garland (@ericgarland) August 13, 2020
Trump saying clearly on Fox why he won’t fund USPS. “Now they need that money in order to make the post office work so it can take all of these millions and millions of ballots…But if they don’t get those two items that means you can’t have universal mail-in voting…”— Abby D.

New: Federal judge in Pennsylvania orders Trump campaign & GOP to produce any evidence of vote-by-mail fraud in the state by Friday. The order, in a high-profile case about vote-by-mail, forces campaign to back up Trump’s false claims about massive fraud in postal voting.— Jim Sciutto (@jimsciutto) August 13, 2020
Lawmakers originally agreed to a $13 billion direct grant the Postal Service would not have to repay. That effort was blocked by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin – WaPo— The Rube Report (@GuadalahonkyToo) August 12, 2020

Head of the Iowa Postal Workers Union says mail sorting equipment is being removed from U.S. Postal Service offices following operational changes enforced by top Trump donor & new Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, leaving mail to pile up. 🛑#VoterSuppression https://t.co/065ATIHDze— Repairers of the Breach (@BRepairers) August 13, 2020
One of my great-great-great uncles fought for the Union cause at the battle of the Angle at Gettysburg, and his name is on the Pennsylvania monument there. It makes me sick to think of the Cheeto making his announcement there:
Gettysburg would be quite the choice, given the president’s recent defense of generals from the side that lost that battle https://t.co/vKbzGaCnrU— Jonathan Lemire (@JonLemire) August 10, 2020
The most obvious Confederate sympathizer to sit in the White House since John Tyler is proposing to accept his party’s nomination atop the graves of men who fought and died to defeat the treasonous bastards whom his most fervent fans so revere. https://t.co/ZV8NhhzOsC— Charles P.

Gettysburg is sacred ground. It’s not Donald Trump’s goddamn playpen. It’s not a prop for a fascist tyrant. 50,000 people suffered or died on that ground, half of whom fought against the traitor flag and generals he’s defending. I bet he doesn’t even know the year of the battle.— Bob Cesca (@bobcesca_go) August 10, 2020
LARRY KUDLOW: The president felt he had to take action on an eviction moratorium.— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) August 9, 2020
STEPHANOPOULOS: But his executive order doesn't actually include an eviction moratorium.
KUDLOW: … look, that's not entirely true.
STEPHANOPOULOS: It is true. I just read it. pic.twitter.com/f9Hc4J9FHw
And most had to do with the Postal Service:
23 postal executives were reassigned or displaced in today’s shakeup. The new structure centralizes power around a Trump megadonor and de-emphasizes decades’ worth of institutional postal knowledge. ✉️ https://t.co/IZ2eLhtXQc— James Hohmann (@jameshohmann) August 7, 2020
