    “Here’s the thing about presidential records, something Trump and his posse can’t seem to understand. Those records don’t belong to Trump or to any president. They belong to the American people.”

    Rachel Maddow Shows Why Trump May Be Doomed On Classified Docs

    “Trump went through the boxes himself late last year, in late 2021, according to multiple people briefed on his efforts, before he turned the boxes over.” He went through the boxes himself, i.e.,Trump did it personally, which means no passing the buck and saying it was somebody else who did it and you had no idea, and that’s the kind of crime you leave to the little people. I mean if it was him in there with his big old hands, his big hands — little hands — his hands in the boxes himself.”

    New Reporting Paints Trump In Incriminating Role In Sensitive Documents Scandal

    “But among the most frequently referenced talking points

    “Believe it or not, the 2022 primary season is drawing to a close. After today, we have just two more primary Tuesdays before the main affair in November…

    …Longtime Democratic Rep. Jerrold Nadler had already pulled away from longtime Rep. Carolyn Maloney in the final polls of New York’s 12th District, and he ended up winning handily tonight. Meanwhile, in Florida, Rep. Charlie Crist easily bested state Commissioner of Agriculture Nikki Fried in the Democratic primary for governor.”

    FACT SHEET:
    President Biden Announces Student Loan Relief for Borrowers Who Need It Most

    AUGUST 24, 2022

    “A three-part plan delivers on President Biden’s promise to cancel $10,000 of student debt for low- to middle-income borrowers

    President Biden believes that a post-high school education should be a ticket to a middle-class life, but for too many, the cost of borrowing for college is a lifelong burden that deprives them of that opportunity. During the campaign, he promised to provide student debt relief. Today, the Biden Administration is following through on that promise and providing families breathing room as they prepare to start re-paying loans after the economic crisis brought on by the pandemic.”

    Trump Flouted Rules About Presidential Records. That’s Not How It Usually Works.
    Presidents from both parties have followed tightly restricted procedures that conform to the Presidential Records Act of 1978, which was enacted after Watergate.

    By Michael D. Shear

    “WASHINGTON — For the three years that former President Barack Obama wrote his 768-page memoir after leaving the White House, the millions of pages of his official presidential records were locked away in warehouses in Washington and Chicago.

    Each time Mr. Obama wanted to review something, his aides submitted precise requests to the National Archives and Records Administration. Sometimes, documents would be encrypted and loaded onto a laptop that would be brought to Mr. Obama at his office in Washington. Other times, a paper document would be placed in a locked bag for his perusal, and later returned the same way.”

    The presenter said there had been a wider assault on journalism on both sides of the Atlantic in recent years – in which media organisations “are primed to back down, even apologise, to prove how journalistically fair we are being”.

    In her speech, Maitlis said many journalists now self-censor in order to appear balanced and avoid backlash, adding that “the way populist rhetoric is used to discredit journalists turns into a sophisticated form of ‘soft censorship'”.

    She suggested any fear by the BBC and other media outlets to fully tackle the impact of Brexit “feels like a conspiracy against the British people”.

    Recalling Newsnight’s coverage, Maitlis said: “It might take our producers five minutes to find 60 economists who feared Brexit and five hours to find a sole voice who espoused it.

    “But by the time we went on air we simply had one of each; we presented this unequal effort to our audience as balance. It wasn’t.”

    She described this “myopic style of journalism” as “both side-ism” – something “we tie ourselves in knots over” and which arrives at “a superficial balance whilst obscuring a deeper truth”.

    With reference to former US President Donald Trump, she continued: “Just as we now understand that when we hear the phrase ‘fake news’ we should see it through Trump’s own definition – a conscious attempt to discredit and demean – let’s not turn ourselves inside-out wondering if it’s true.

    “The more we recognise these tropes as old, slightly sad and malign friends, the better equipped we are to call them out.”

    She added that modern journalists like herself had helped to “normalise the absurd”, and that in the future “whilst we do not have to be campaigners, nor should we be complaisant, complicit, onlookers”.

    Fantastic.

    With the fight over abortion rights looming large over the midterm elections, voters in Florida ousted two prominent anti-abortion elected officials in separate races on Tuesday.

    Florida Rep. James Bush lost his reelection bid, a notable defeat for the sole Democrat in the state legislature who voted on a 15-week abortion ban and the anti-LGBTQ “Don’t Say Gay” bill.

    His opponent, 37-year-old lawyer Ashley Gantt, ran on a platform focused on affordable housing, public education, and criminal justice reform. Gantt, an attorney and former public school teacher, has criticized Bush for siding with Republicans on the abortion ban and the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, which bars “classroom discussion about sexual orientation or gender identity.”

    “As a Black woman, I was offended when he voted to restrict my rights, our right to make decisions over our bodies,” she said last week. “As a former teacher, I was insulted that he voted to inject Tallahassee extremism into our classrooms and deny local control over our school systems.”

    Gantt and Bush were the only two candidates vying for District 109. As the winner of the Democratic primary, Gantt is now the representative-elect.

    Florida voters also ousted Jared Smith, an incumbent circuit judge for Hillsborough County who gained notoriety for rejecting a teenager’s request for an abortion because her grades were low.

    The race between Smith and his opponent, Nancy Jacobs, was relatively contentious for a typically low-key nonpartisan judgeship election, the Tampa Bay Times reported.

    Smith had denied a 17-year-old seeking an abortion without parental consent in January this year on the basis that her grades were low and that she lacked “intelligence or credibility,” and was therefore not mature enough to get an abortion. An appeals court later overturned his ruling.

    Florida is set up for a riveting general election in November, with abortion rights expected to be a central issue in races all the way up to the gubernatorial election.

    Statement from Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on New Abortion Bans
    AUGUST 26, 2022

    Today marks the latest attack against the fundamental rights of Americans as new abortion bans go into effect in Idaho, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas. These extreme bans will criminalize abortion, in some cases without exceptions for rape or incest. These near-total abortion bans are part of a growing effort by Republican legislators to roll back the freedoms Americans have relied on for nearly half a century. Today’s radical steps take away women’s reproductive rights and put personal health care decisions in the hands of politicians instead of women and their doctors, threatening women’s health and lives. Americans need to know that these and other fundamental rights, including the right to contraception and marriage equality, are at risk. Congress should act immediately to pass a law restoring the protections of Roe–and people across the country to should make their voices heard.
