    Other than Anita Hill hanging up on him, I’m unsure how this could have gone worse for @JoeBiden. Serves him right. He had 28 years to apologize, and he tried this right before launching a presidential campaign. Probably thought it would stay secret, too. https://t.co/GNHU3gBjXJ

👋 Whoa! WTF is this?

Current Status is the consensus view of the current top U.S. political stories from a cross-section of the news media ecosystem.


There are three components that determine the Current Status: First, there is an editorially-responsible algorithm that considers the signals news editors send about a story's news value. Second, there's a human-in-the-loop curating the list and providing oversight to ensure that the Current Status is a fair and accurate representation of the day's essential political stories. And third, Current Status is biased toward recent, highly-cited stories, with an emphasis on depth and accuracy. The stars are a reflection of a story's current relative news value.

This is what the political web is talking about right now.

Matt

Let me email you this
I'll never share your email with anyone.

Today in one sentence: The White House rejected a House Oversight Committee request for Stephen Miller to testify; House Democrats suggested fining officials personally for noncompliance with congressional subpoenas; Trump claimed he never told Donald McGahn to fire Robert Mueller despite the Mueller report showing otherwise; and Trump's re-election campaign refused to rule out using hacked information.

    Trump has literally ordered his AG to prosecute his political opponents. Meanwhile the leadership of the Democratic party is petrified of the beltway press calling them partisan. https://t.co/XXYXgJgepy

    Dictators & heads of banana republics use law enforcement to go after their enemies. In our system Presidents don’t get to jail political opponents out of spite or vindictiveness. Trump’s repeated efforts to do that merit serious consideration by Congress. https://t.co/LVthJW0tAp

    In an overlooked section of the Mueller report, President Trump tried to wield the power of law enforcement to target a political rival, a step that no president since Richard Nixon is known to have taken https://t.co/SpX8qxMVSY

    Trump’s obsession with Hillary at this point is bizarre. But his desire to use law enforcement to go after her or political rivals should sound the alarms for people. That’s not how we do it in America. https://t.co/o9fJMwWM89
