It baffles me that #SusanCollins, who has admitted on the record that, “Trump lacks the temperament, self discipline and judgment required to be president” can find herself on the side arguing that Trump’s a saint and no one can say otherwise.

She lacks judgment. And soon a job. https://t.co/Lz9ktHXcXA

"Last October, Trump signed an executive order directing the attorney general to establish a Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice. As Tom Jackman reported, this is something that both police and civil rights groups have sought for years. Nevertheless, concerns emerged almost immediately."

Excerpt: "The first thing to notice is that there is no one on the commission representing civil rights, public defenders, or community groups. Seven of the members are employees of the Justice Department, including the chair, and all of them were appointed during the Trump administration. For example, David Bowdich became deputy director of the FBI when Andrew McCabe was fired. He then went on to fire Peter Strzok."
