Bob Ney: I hate to see this, but I'm not sure that the Biden admin is crying about Teera Nanden's asking to be removed from consideration for budget office. She was a Clinton choice.

Steven Donziger: The playbook being used against me can be used against anyone else, which is part of the reason we're working so hard on this--incl. human rights activists, indigenous people's activists, etc.

Chrissy Stroop: It's a shame that there's almost no prospect of the Equality Act passing in the Senate & that Democrats aren't playing hardball, getting rid of the filibuster, to pass it.
