NEW YORK (AP) — Michael Avenatti, the combative lawyer who gained fame by representing porn star Stormy Daniels in lawsuits involving President Donald Trump, was convicted Friday of trying to...
Howard FinemanMichael #Avenatti is convicted of trying to extort Nike (from @AP). Taking this guy at all seriously was one of many low points in recent media history; I’m sure I’m on tape somewhere....What an embarrassment. #Trump derangement syndrome has hurt us all.
Cummings passed away at Johns Hopkins Hospital aged 68.
Howard FinemanIt’s hard to overstate what a mensch #elijacummings was. I’ve covered literally thousands of politicians and never met on more genuine, more sensitive to people and history, or more motivated by both the street-level reality and great promise of America.
Howard FinemanJudge orders White House to preserve records of Trump's dealings with foreign leaders. Big. I’m sure @realDonaldTrump and gang will be tempted to destroy them anyway, but in the digital age there are always copies and/or evidence of destruction.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Starkly injecting race into his criticism of liberal Democrats, President Donald Trump said Sunday that four congresswomen of color should go back to the "broken and crime...
Howard FinemanLeave the US, Trump tells liberal congresswomen of color (from @AP). I’m looking for a major #Republican — any major Republican — to even mildly criticize @realDonaldTrump for this. Their silence is beyond shameful. It’s catastrophic.
The governor said he did use shoe polish on his face for a Michael Jackson costume in the same year the yearbook was published, but he is not in that photo.
Howard FinemanOk, so: #Northam didn’t put on a hood or blackface for the yearbook, even tho he at first said he’d one or the other. No, he put on blackface to show that he could dance like Michael Jackson. Live-action racism v. still- photo. He should resign for idiocy.
Not long ago, agriculture was a crown jewel of America's export economy. Then President Trump happened.
Howard FinemanThe Self-Destruction of US Farmers, by | Creators Syndicate. .@realDonaldTrump’s trade policies are decimating the very rural regions that voted most enthusiastically for him in 2016. No matter how he tries to distract them now, they’ll notice.

Howard FinemanExpert: Acosta video distributed by White House was doctored (from @AP). This is Stalin-level.
Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was questioned by police when he was a student at Yale over an off-campus bar fight in 1985.
Howard Fineman#Kavanaugh questioned by police in 1985 over Yale bar fight. Picture is becoming clearer. #NeilGorsuch and the other #LeonardLeo @FedSoc creations already on the Court must be furious that #McGahn, #McConnell and Leo are trying to jam this brawler in.
American officials hoped they could persuade some of Russia’s wealthiest men to help with investigations into organized crime and interference in the 2016 election. It didn’t work.
Howard FinemanAgents Tried to Flip Russian Oligarchs. @NYTimes. Hmmm... this prompts questions about the seas upon which #Mueller sails. I’ve always assumed that the intel folks knew a lot LONG AGO about #Trump, #Manafort & #Russia but did nothing til July 2016. Why?
The Arizona senator's name was featured on the defense bill the president signed today, but not in the president's remarks at the bill signing.
Howard FinemanI was in #Hanoi with @SenJohnMcCain in 2000; saw where he was shot down and the prison in which he nearly died. Now he’s bravely facing death again. It’s almost beyond comprehension that @realDonaldTrump could be so petty. Almost, but not.
