As everyone is on edge over whether Bob Mueller’s findings will be released, Democrats have hatched a plan to force Mueller to testify to Congress even if the Trump DOJ is unwilling to release the Mueller report. Democrats are issuing a new warning to Trump Attorney General Bill Barr: either hand over Mueller’s report, or they will hold hearings with Mueller himself, under subpoena if necessary. MSNBC Chief Legal Correspondent, Ari Melber, breaks down how the new threat is part of an effort to ramp up public pressure on Barr ahead of the report’s conclusion.

North Carolina Republican in congressional race tainted by ballot fraud says he will not run in new election
By Felicia Sonmez
February 26 at 2:43 PM
Mark Harris, the Republican nominee in a North Carolina congressional race that was tainted by ballot fraud, announced Tuesday that he will not run in the new election for the seat.
Harris said in a statement that he has decided not to seek the 9th District seat due to health problems.
“Given my health situation, the need to regain full strength, and the timing of this surgery the last week of March, I have decided not to file in the new election for Congressional District 9,” Harris said.
Harris has been recovering from a serious infection that had led to sepsis and two strokes.

@Russian_Starr: Is President Trump a racist?
@KamalaHarris: I don’t think you can reach any other conclusion.
Starr: So you definitely agree that he’s a racist?
Kamala: I do, yes. Yes. https://t.co/JZAo8C3uhk https://twitter.com/IanSams/status/1100428222666338304?s=17
Klobuchar was asked about guns. Harris was asked about guns. Even Schultz was asked about guns. But the one candidate with a mixed track record on the issue of gun safety wasn’t asked about guns. ??#sanderstownhall https://t.co/l4UAS7bZ77

I’m telling you…this isn’t 2016…and nobody is playing with these muthaphuckas.
That Lasted Long: Bernie Sanders and Supporters Abandon All Pretense of Civility
Remember when 72 whole hours ago Bernie Sanders sent an email to his fans instructing them to “engage respectfully” with other Democrats (well, Democrats, since Bernie is not one)? In that message, he also warned his supporters not to talk about “past grievances.” He even got a line in about bullying
Let it be noted that I predicted as soon as the story of this email came out that it was a pathetic, weak CYA move on the part of Bernie Sanders so that he would have plausible deniability when his backers inevitably chose to be their dickish selves.
Unsurprisingly, I was correct. Last night, both Sanders and his former campaign staff happily trampled all over his fake appeal to civility.
At the CNN town hall, Sanders were alternatively ignorant, arrogant, and belligerent. He chastised a woman for challenging him on his own words about his 2016 campaign’s culture of sexual violence that he said he didn’t have time to pay attention to because he was a “little busy.” He appeared not to know what reparations even meant. And he took an early, sore-loser shot at the Democratic party, whining that he was treated unfairly in 2016.
In the mean time, Michael Briggs, the mouthpiece – I mean spokesman – for Sanders’ 2016 campaign on Monday called former Hillary Clinton staffers “total ingrates” and “the biggest assholes in American politics.” What prompted such scathing, unadulterated hatred? Former Clinton staffers let out of the bag the secret Bernie and his man-of-the-people image crafters desperately wanted to keep: Sanders loves himself some private jet time.
Lindsey Graham finds a new place for the Russia scandal goalposts

As a rule, no one is better at moving the Russia scandal goalposts than Rudy Giuliani. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), however, may be giving him a run for his money.
The trouble is, “collusion” is a political term, which means different things to different people. What would the GOP senator have to see in order to abandon the president whose water he’s carried for two years? He shared an extraordinary perspective with the New York Times.
…Trump, he insisted, knew where he stood on the special counsel’s Russia investigation.
Wait, that’s where the lines are now drawn? We’ve arrived at the point at which “collusion” is defined as campaign officials sitting down with Russian intelligence operatives to directly coordinate the manipulation of election results?
Lips pursed so hard.
I’m trying to think of an appropriate response but all that comes to mind is tar and feathers and rails.

that may be all well & good, but the Democratic party should never have allowed the Bern to enter the race. He’s not a fucking democrat.
