NEW: The horrific and terrifying story of how police tried to "HOLD THE LINE" on the Capitol steps as they did hand to hand combat w/Trump supporters. It's based on new police radio traffic synchronized w/footage from the scene. w/@robinnyc7 @heytherehaIey https://t.co/gepbkOW6el

NEW: Trump twice directly pushed acting AG Rosen to revive voter fraud lawsuits that SCOTUS & a federal judge rejected, per emails uncovered by House Oversight Committee. Perhaps the most explicit example yet of the ex-POTUS politicizing law enforcement. https://t.co/sNCla932uw

I've been thinking a lot & talking to people about how it could be that Sessions, Rosenstein & Barr could all honestly be asserting no knowledge of the subpoena for Schiff & Swalwell's records. I don't have a definitive answer but here's a theory... https://t.co/RSI0K708Zg

The FBI's global sting and Bitcoin seizure this week made us wonder: Who's winning the tech race between the good guys and the bad guys? It seems the cops are getting better, but the crooks still have the advantage. with @nytmike: https://t.co/ZxSxMzZMzN
